Katherine Jackson -- This Isn't It

10/16/2009 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Katherine Jackson Something is going on with the Jackson family ... multiple sources are telling us the family has been invited with open arms to attend the premiere of "This Is It" ... but Katherine Jackson and other family members insist they have been snubbed.

Here's what we know -- 60 tickets for the Michael Jackson movie have been offered to the family, yet Katherine insists no one ever called them about getting seats. Several sources tell us they believe the ticket offer was made to certain members of the family but the offer was never relayed to Katherine.

Fact is ... Katherine doesn't want to see the movie. She tells TMZ as far as she's concerned it's not a real movie because there is no acting -- just rehearsal footage.

But we're also told Jackson's three kids have been telling Katherine they want to see it ... bad.

Joe Jackson insists "This Is It" is mostly body doubles and "the media is going to tear this movie apart."

Sources say Sony not only offered the Jackson family seats to the premiere, but also offered a private screening.

Is it possible one of Katherine's sons is hoarding info? Just a theory ...

183. Insanity Says:


"Stranger in Moscow" is the fifth and final single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory. The song was released worldwide in November 1996 but was not released in the United States until August 1997. The track was written by Jackson in 1993, at the height of the highly publicized child abuse accusations made against him, while on tour in Moscow. In the ballad, Jackson sings of a fall from grace that has left him lonely, isolated, paranoid and on the verge of "Insanity".

Well, Perhaps Joe Jackson is right that the media will rip the movie and Michael Jackson to shreds..I really hope not! That would be terrible and disappointing. No matter what people think of Joe Jackson he has a good head on his shoulders and knows what he's talking about much of the time. I'm really concerned because we know AEG and SONY are out to make money. Michael is not here to put his stamp of approval on anything.

I wish they would leave this family alone! Haven't they been through enough? And not seeing a movie...when did that become newsworthy?

If a Jackson son is hoarding information, everyone knows it's probably Jermaine. He's the only one that would do something that selfish.

And if the children want to see their dad on the big-screen, let them! I will be glad when they reach the age to make their own decisions. Michael would not be pleased at all.

By the way I think "Stranger in Moscow" and "Blood on the Dance Floor" are great and could have been released as singles. Really great songs Michael did..

How do you have body doubles for a rehearsal concert? I can see for certain special entrances where Michael might have been trying to make an illusion that he is standing at one place but then appears at another but other than that I don't understand how it can be mostly body doubles?

And Kooky whatever needs to go to hell. That person needs some serious mental help.

What is going on? Joe charging $3,000 to fans? Can no one stop this man? Michael would be mortified and disgusted. He's making it all about him? If there are body doubles, ther will be hell to pay. If true, does Sony and AEG think WE would not notice. If I see a body double, I think I'll pass out right there in the movie. Seriously, I'll be beyond upset, as I'm sure everyone would be.

And what's going on with Katherine. I could see her saying she would be too upset to see it, but because it's rehearsal, she doesn't want to see it? I sure hope Joe doesn't talk her into taking the kids to Vegas for his $3,000 circus. If he does get the kids, he can up the price considerably.

Why does it always have to be a 3-ring circus where the Jacksons are concerned?

Not that I believe anything Joe says, but I'm really worried about the movie, for Michael's sake.

TMZ is trying to stir trouble. Once again, they are forcing a divide to get a statement. TMZ can not handle it when no one will speak to them. They just make it up ---that is why it is a gossip column. Remember a couple weeks ago that we read in a more reputable print that the estate and his children had already seen it during a private screening for their approval. That was a condition of the sale of the footage for the movie. Don't let TMZ start a bunch of sh*t....

My guess is that Jermaine sold them all on eBay so he could make money for another super concert with exorbitant prices in another country to "Honor Michael"
