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.

Reuters
Michael Jackson fans say film covers up grim truth
Thu Oct 22, 2009 5:53pm EDT

By Dan Whitcomb

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A small group of Michael Jackson's dedicated fans have started an "awareness" campaign surrounding the upcoming movie "This is It," saying it covers up the grim reality of the dead pop star's final days.

The group represents fans from at least 10 countries who claim the movie, which hits theaters around the world on October 28 and is based on Jackson's rehearsals for a series of London concerts, conceals the "dire state" of his health while enriching its promoters that they hold partly responsible for his death on June 25.

"In the weeks leading up to Michael Jackson's death, while this footage was being shot, people around him knew that he looked like he might have died. Those who stood to make a profit chose to ignore it," the group says on its website, this is not it

Jackson was preparing for the concerts at the time of his sudden death, which was ruled a homicide by the Los Angeles County Coroner and attributed to an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol as well as the sedative lorazepam.

Police have focused their investigation into his death on the entertainer's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray. So far, no charges have been filed.

Kenny Ortega, the director of "This is It" who also was choreographing the concert rehearsals, told Reuters earlier this week that he saw no signs of drug dependency in Jackson, that the singer was excited to be performing and that the film was not intended to make a profit.

In a separate interview on Thursday, Ortega called the movie a "musical mosaic...that I think will help the fans come to appreciate and understand what Michael was putting into "This Is It", what his dreams were for it, what his goals were for it."

"It is a story of a master of his craft, a great genius in his final theatrical work and creative process," Ortega said.

The concert promoters, AEG Live, did not return calls for comment.

The group is made up largely of longtime Jackson fans, some of whom have spent time with the entertainer over the years and attended nearly every day of his 2005 child molestation trial.

They say they became so concerned about Jackson's health that on June 21, four days before his death, they wrote to him asking him to stop the tour if he was not up to it.

"It is our wish to help people understand where the responsibilities lie, pertaining to Michael Jackson's passing, in the hope that if they choose to watch the film, they will do so with critical eyes," the group said in a written statement.

"In fact, we believe that those around Jackson chose to look the other way when it was evident he was having problems," the fans said.

"We want to celebrate Michael Jackson and his amazing legacy, but we cannot do so until the truth comes out, justice is served and the lies are exposed."

The fans say they will hand out fliers promoting their cause at the premieres next week for "This is It."

Britney Spears' 'Lawyer' Ejected From Courtroom After Judge Doesn't Recognize Him As Her Counsel
Adam Streisand claimed he had been hired by singer over weekend; meanwhile, Sam Lutfi ordered not to contact Spears.

The battle over Britney Spears' affairs heated up in court on Monday (February 4) as her father and his lawyers faced off against a new attorney who claimed to have been hired by the singer this weekend. The lawyer wanted to fire the singer's father as conservator of her estate, though the court ultimately did not recognize him as her counsel.

Adam Streisand, a second cousin to Barbra Streisand and an attorney who specializes in disputes over large celebrity estates, told the court during a hearing that Britney has a "very strong desire" for her father, Jamie Spears, not to be the conservator of her estate, as was decided as a temporary measure on Friday. Streisand, who spoke with Britney for 30 minutes on Saturday and a short while on Monday, said the singer — who is currently being hospitalized — has been estranged from her father and that the situation is causing a "greater estrangement."

Jamie Spears' attorneys, as well as a court-appointed investigator, questioned whether Streisand could represent Spears, saying that she didn't have the mental capacity to hire him at this time. Sam Ingham, the court-appointed investigator who spoke with Britney for 15 minutes on Sunday, told the court that the singer "did not understand" the nature of the proceedings and the impact the process could have on her affairs. "She lacks the capacity to retain direct counsel," he told the court. Streisand responded, "I am her lawyer." Commissioner Reva Goetz disagreed and did not recognize him as Spears' attorney, ejecting him from the courtroom.

Dear Janet, Randy,Jermaine, Latoya, Tito and Marlon

When your mother is begging for money is not a good sign is it and its not funny. Please stop this nonsense. help your mother whats wrong with people you. I just finished reading Marget's book Jermaine ex, its very interesting that all the time she lived with Jacksons, MJ was the one who folked all the bills, no mention of Janet, Janet only bought toys for the children. She also state that when Encino compound was partly destroyed by the earthquake, MJ put the whole family in a posh hotel paying $40. 000 per month only a hotel only for rich and famous. MJ was a good son, brother and a father. I am sure he spoiled his family, without asking anything in return and the family are finding it it difficult to live without all the luxurious MJ provided them with. I think its a culture shock for them now.I am aware that Janet bought a house for her father in Las Vegas, and remember MJ told his lady friend that the family never asked Janet for money.

In between Katherine was in London few weeks ago attending Tito's concert, maybe Tito bought her ticket who knows. The family needs to get their acts together, this is really embarrassing.

RIP MJ, you are at peace now my friend.

HATERS ARE DESPERATE!    

REAL MICHAEL JACKSON FANS around the WORLD” will NEVER FORGET MICHAEL JACKSON’S “OWN WORDS “about “SONY” and the “CATALOG.” WE KNOW the TREMENDOUS IMPACT and SIGNIFICANT WORTH of the “CATALOG” in the GIGANTIC MUSIC INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE.

REAL MICHAEL JACKSON FANS around the WORLD will NOT STAND BY IDLY AND ALLOW “BIG CORPORATION” to CARRY OUT the SINISTER PLAN to DIVIDE and DESTROY MICHAEL JACKSON’S REPUTATION, MICHAEL JACKSON’S FAMILY WHOM HE LOVED, and the MICHAEL JACKSON TRUST in order TO GAIN and CONTROL the SONY “CATALOG.”


“BIG CORPORATION” SINISTER PLAN in the GIGANTIC MUSIC INDUSTRY to GAIN and CONTROL the SONY “CATALOG” appears to consist of the following:

FIRST -- ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED -- ORCHESTRATE and SKILLFULLY TIME the SUCCESSFUL SUDDEN DEATH of MICHAEL JACKSON……with the READY ASSISTANCE OF the ALREADY CONFESSED “DOCTOR” MURRAY, in addition to AEG/Tohme/Colony/Branca in the SONY “CAMP.”

SECOND -- ONGOING -- systematically DESTROY MICHAEL JACKSON’S “REPUTATION”……. with the ready ASSISTANCE OF THE TRASH MEDIA AND “PAID BLOGGERS,” who viciously spread LIES and use multiple ALIASES and CLONE MJ fans to HARASS them in order to DISRUPT MJ boards.

THIRD -- ONGOING -- systematically DIVIDE and DESTROY MICHAEL JACKSON’S FAMILY WHOM HE LOVED……..with the READY ASSISTANCE OF the TRASH MEDIA and “PAID BLOGGERS,” who viciously spread LIES and use multiple ALIASES and CLONE MJ fans to HARASS them in order to DISRUPT MJ boards.

FOURTH -- “ONGOING” -- systematically DESTROY the MICHAEL JACKSON TRUST……..with the READY ASSISTANCE OF the well orchestrated “FAKE” WILL and its QUESTIONABLE “EXECUTORS,” who make BLATANTLY “WRONG” DECISIONS (This Is It song is a recent example) to NEGATIVELY IMPACT the TRUST, and to ULTIMATELY OBLITERATE the TRUST.


REAL MICHAEL JACKSON FANS AROUND THE WORLD WILL “NOT” STAND BY IDLY AND ALLOW “BIG CORPORATION” TO CARRY OUT THE SINISTER PLAN TO DIVIDE AND DESTROY MICHAEL JACKSON’S REPUTATION AND HIS FAMILY WHOM HE LOVED AND THE MICHAEL JACKSON TRUST IN ORDER TO GAIN AND CONTROL THE SONY “CATALOG”!!

Somebody needs to take MJ's pics where he is wearing sunglasses and you can see the reflection in them and reverse the images kind of like a "life through the eyes of MJ" type thing. So we could see all the paps and fans and stuff. That would be interesting.

I called this yesterday on the post about Randy Jackson saying that Mike's will was forged and the children being hit by the paps! There is always something with this family. If she kicked out those freeloaders her life would be better but to think the children are to pay for all those non-working individuals in that house is ridiculous! I hope the court says NO - SPEND WISER!
