Jackson's Mom and Kids

Get a Bundle

9/17/2009 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Up to now we didn't know how much Katherine Jackson was getting by way of allowance while Michael Jackson's estate gets probated. In legal docs just unveiled today, we now know the special administrators asked to pay her $26,804 per month.

As for the kids, the family allowance for them is $60,000 per month.

The docs also say "...the Estate assets consist of real and personal property exceeding $500 million and that the Estate is solvent."

Katherine and Michael's 3 kids will continue to get an allowance -- which is subject to change -- until the estate is probated. That could take between 1 and 2 years from now.

UPDATE: The docs also list Katherine and the kids' expenses separately.

Now, the kids' specific expenses are redacted -- but it doesn't matter, because the totals are still listed ... and they're HUGE:

-- Salaries and payroll benefits: $315,580 per year
-- Basic needs: $141,300 per year
-- Entertainment and other: $159,120 per year
TOTAL: $720,000 per year

Katherine's expenses per month:

-- Assistant: $4,722
-- Insurance for Asst: $475
-- Housekeeper: $2,080
-- Driver: $2,000
-- Payroll and Taxes on gross salaries: $1,760
-- Utilities: $3,260
-- Clothing: $3,500
-- Personal grooming: $1,000
-- Entertainment: $1,500
-- Car Expenses: $1,750
TOTAL (plus a few expenses we didn't list): $26,804 per month

There is NOTHING wrong with Katherine having her expenses paid for by her son.

Hell, I do with my mom without any help from my siblings.

Now who the HELL is earning $315,000 salary? Security? Tutors? Executors?

Harvey, I hope you answer this in your chat today.

What a crock! I can't believe this old fart needs so much money every month! I thought the whole point of her taking in the kids was because she "could"! Not because she could hire an expensive assistant! And, who the hell spends $3,000+ a month for clothes while taking care of kids? What the heck, are they gonna spit up on her? I think they're well past that! Pure extortion...

Also - Joe Jackson has ZERO influence on what Katherine Jackson's expense allowance.

It' s willed, therefore, Joe has zero claims.

WHAT? Are you actually going to question a black woman's personal grooming expenses? I suggest you NOT go there.

And yes, Katherine is 79 years old! WTF do you think? That she's gonna drive herself around with all the press & paparazzi around her?

Please let's respect Katherine.

94. Ok so she really needs 3500 a MONTH for clothing and 1500 for entertainment and a grand for personal grooming? What the hell is all that about? And WHY a car allowance? Isnt she too old to drive? Holy crap this is an OUTRAGE.

These amounts DO NOT INCLUDE any fees earned by Team Branca as co-executors. Also, the fees for the guardian ad lithem are not included. These fees would come directly from the estate.

Remember, a portion of the kids money goes to pay the cook and the nanny and others that assist with their care.

Chill out folks, like someone else commented, MJ worked his ass off all of his life for his money. He did not inherit it and it is now doing what he wants it to do...take care of his mom and his kids. If Katherine wants to share her with others, that's her issue. She also has to pay Londell McMoney from her money also and I'm sure that will be a hefty penny.

#2 .. What makes you say that? Of course they will, it's legally their money. You think Katherine will steal it from them? What are you implying? You're an idiot. You probably think He was murdered for money too, right? Everyone is out to get Michael and his kids. Grow up.

Really KATIE???? It's an "OUTRAGE"???? Let me get this STRAIGHT, your're "OUTRAGED" by the fact that Katherine Jackson is getting a petty little 26K out of how many MILLIONS that she's gonna be receiving in the future? What BUSINESS is it of anybody out here how she spends the money......it's HERS!!!! $3500 can be one outfit when your rich, you really need to get out more. And be "OUTRAGED" BY SOMETHING THAT'S ACTUALLY WORTH BEING "OUTRAGED" ABOUT!

Everyone has to respect whatever allowances MJ stipulated on his will.

If MJ wanted his mom's expenses to be all paid for - then AMEN.

SO WHAT????

How nice for them, I know they deserve it, but her monthly allowance is more than I make in 1 year.

It is a lot of money, but it's Michael's money. Unfortunately, Katherine has alot of 'moochers' living at Hayvenhurtst. Although they are her children, they are adults who can't support themselves and are now living off of Michael's dollar. Sad isn't it. Remember everyone that the hayvenurst home is owned by Michael Jackson, which in turn belongs to the kids now. Team Brancha should see that the 'moocher' brothers living there should be paying rent. Randy does not work. Jermaine does not work. Marlon does not work. I don't know about Tito and Jackie. So, Katheines allowance also pays to FEED these 'moochers', too. Let us not forget Joe who is probably getting cash from Katherine. Last but not least there is now Joe Jackson's daughter Joh Vonnie coming out wanting to make money off of Michael's name. She is Joe's kid, has nothing to do with Katherine or Michael or his kids, and the siblings apparently don't recognize her. Poor Michael, he tries to help people in need and the trash Arvizo's try to ruin him. I hope those people end up in hell. Then Chandlers, if people really read the true facts that are out, the father of Jordan Chandler was in so much financial trouble , it truly was extortion. Shame on the whole bunch of liars and extortionist. Debbie Rowe, she keeps coming back for cash...The only true love is Lisa Marie.
