Katherine Jackson Can Challenge Administrators

9/18/2009 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The probate judge in the Michael Jackson estate case has ruled Katherine Jackson can challenge the special administrators and not forfeit her position as a beneficiary in Michael's will.

Katherine Jackson

As a result of the ruling, Katherine can now safely challenge special administrators John Branca and John McClain without jeopardizing her position in the will -- she's set to get 40% of the net value of the estate.

The will has a "no contest" clause -- which means any beneficiary who contests the will gets aced out of inheriting anything. But the court has now ruled challenging the special administrators is not a "contest" of the will itself.

Interestingly, the court specifically ruled .... Katherine objecting to the special administrators on grounds there was some sort of "undue influence" imposed on M.J. is not a "contest" under the will.

But for the circle of handlers who surrounded Jackson during his final years, their golden goose could not be allowed to run dry. Bankruptcy was not an option. These, after all, were not the handlers who had seen him through the aftermath of the Arvizo trial and who had been protecting his fragile emotional health to the best of their ability. They were gone, and a new set of advisers was in place.
The clear-out had apparently been engineered by his children’s nanny, Grace Rwaramba, who was gaining considerable influence over Jackson and his affairs and has been described as the ‘queen bee’ by those around Jackson. Rwaramba had ties to the black militant organization, the Nation of Islam, and its controversial leader, Louis Farrakhan, whom she enlisted for help in running Jackson’s affairs.
Before long, the Nation was supplying Jackson’s security detail and Farrakhan’s son-in-law, Leonard Muhammad, was appointed as Jackson’s business manager, though his role has lessened significantly in recent years.
In late 2008, a shadowy figure who called himself Dr Tohme Tohme suddenly emerged as Jackson’s ‘official spokesman. Tohme has been alternately described as a Saudi Arabian billionaire and an orthopedic surgeon, but he is actually a Lebanese businessman who does not have a medical license. At one point, Tohme claimed he was an ambassador at large for Senegal, but the Senegalese embassy said they had never heard of him.
Julien filed an affidavit in Los Angeles Superior Court that month in which he described a meeting he had with Tohme’s business partner, James R. Weller. According to Julien’s account, ‘Weller said if we refused to postpone [the auction], we would be in danger from 'Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam; those people are very protective of Michael. He told us that Dr Tohme and Michael Jackson wanted to give the message to us that 'our lives are at stake and there will be bloodshed. A month after these alleged threats. Tohme accompanied Jackson to a meeting at a Las Vegas hotel with Randy Phillips, chief executive of the AEG Group, to finalize plans for Jackson’s return to the concert stage.
Jackson’s handlers had twice before said no to Phillips. This time, with Tohme acting as his confidant, Jackson left the room agreeing to perform ten concerts at the O2.

'I'm better off dead. I'm done': Michael Jackson's fateful prediction just a week before his death; By Ian Halperin Last updated at 3:58 PM on 29th June 2009
Whatever the final autopsy results reveal, it was greed that killed Michael Jackson. Had he not been driven – by a cabal of bankers, agents, doctors and advisers – to commit to the grueling 50 concerts in London’s O2 Arena, I believe he would still be alive today.

I believe many players and the problem is some think that they are safe but those at the top will not want to leave them standing to be able to point back to them. Is Murray in protective custody or just hiding? I find it odd that the family is not more vocal about Murray the man that is suspected of killing their child. So many tried to tie Micheal to drugs which he didn't pick up hiself and if he didn't have them in his system where and to whom were all those prescription drugs going to?

Michael fired Tohme [for one reason} because' in-around December Tohme sold/stole Never-land items without informing Michael, notably the Ferris Wheel + amusement park rides, + statues + a cabinet full of Awards or Trophy's or Records, the items were not prepared for shelfing, yet' to-be presentable, meaning hang-ables not hung or of secondary importance, or awaiting placement spot preparation.

According to timeline Michael fired Grace late 2008' fired Tohme 2009, Autopsy report's Michael was making progress with his self-rehab.

The Autopsy Report is from second Autopsy or the Jackson Autopsy, Michael weighed 120 pounds healthy when arrested' booked' by Santa Barabra, he did not gain 15 pounds rehersing, no broken bones reported, but Report did help define Michaels medical problems, the bottom two lines claiming' "Coroner said" are artistic licence that LA Coroner must hold' until for four more weeks pass.
