Katherine Jackson Needs More Power

10/22/2009 7:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson's need for more power is not about her ability to control the estate -- she needs money for the electric bill.

Lawyers in the probate case just told the judge Katherine's allowance needs to be increased to pay the utility bills.

And, the lawyers say, Katherine made more money this year -- therefore, she needs to pay more taxes and needs more in the way of an allowance.

Katherine is currently pulling in $26,804 a month.

$25,000 a month!!! That's more than most people make in a year in the US.

I feel that Mrs. Jackson does not need any more money and the reason I am saying this is that she has Jermaine and his family living there and god only knows whoelse so make them pay for their keep for once in their life, instead of Mrs. Jackson giving the money to Jermaine, La Toya, Randy and we can not forget Joe as well as any other Jackson member that says they need money. She needs to learn to say NO!! This is not what Michael left the money for to be used to bail out every family member. I hope someone is watching out for the children's money on how it is being spent.

It must have been the $6 donuts served at the Forest Lawn service.

Gee, I hope they have enough to eat--only $28,000 a month.

What's to understand. MJ had to go through this all the time with her and foot the bills. He's not here anymore so the Trust is hearing her grievances. WISE UP! Beside his own expenses Hayvenhurst and his parents and siblings and their children kept him BROKE!
THE JACKSON FAMILY ARE LEECHES!
THEY SUCKED MJ DRY THEY'LL SUCK THE TRUST DRY!

It will require quite a hefty increase in the allowance amount to cover what I would consider to be the 5-10K monthly expense for her attorney fees. I doubt it's the electric bill that is causing the problem. I'm all for an increase. I don't think her "former attorney" did the appropriate due diligence in submitting the initial request for the allowance. Obviously, all the requisite expenses weren't covered...but then how to do you account for those legal fees..."Legal Fees - funds need to object to my deceased son's will." That probably wouldn't look good in print.

I hate to say this, but is clear why MJ wanted someone other than the family to handle the money. I'm glad the kids have their own attorney. These kids might want to go to college, and at this rate this family will blow through all the money the estate can make. Does no one else in this family help Katherine with expenses but Michaels estate? No wonder he was broke before he died!

Perhaps Kate should down-size her lifestyle. Isn't that what normal people do when their income decreases? I can't believe receiving $26k/mo. for expenses. Geez-Loueez. Add to that the kid's monthly stipends. I feel very badly about her loss, but not about her and others thinking they need to continue to live in excess wealth.
