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.

This is nobody's business except for Mrs. Jackson. Modern day paparrazzi and press do not know boundries....Do you think that the world would have learned after the death of Princess Diana? Apparently not. Why can't people get on with their own lives?

I'm going to the movie. Those who don't want to--that's their choice.

Funny how Joe Jackson is asking $3000 a head for his showing of This Is It in Las Vegas, so it doesn't look like Joe is on board for any protests or boycotts.

Are they going to picket Joe's showing?

Maybe I am!

I apply the Blood of Jesus to this site and bind its power to remain. There is power in Jesus' Blood to set everything right, satan. Jesus' Blood works now to remove every evil work on this site.

How Dare you she is a Mother of the greatest Entertainer that has ever lived and for you to have so much disrespect come out of your mouth is sick..Everyone on this board is entitled to their opinion but none of us know what’s going on begging said or done behind closed doors.. Michael is her son.. and she has every right to fight for what she believes in no matter what we think..Maybe there are other things taking place…TMz has not reported on….. I SHOULD SLAP THE TASTE OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.. Mrs. Jackson isn’t perfect but Michal sure did..Think so .IT was Michael’s money and he choose his mother to receive some of his hard earned money.. So as Long as she is alive she should receive it and does not matter what she does with.. As long as the children are well and their money is there for them when they need it..She Has a big house with Lots of kids to feed and take care of since their parents are not doing it..Mj knew this before he died..I think that should pay for their own kids but until that starts to happen what do u think Mrs. Jackson is going to do let them starve…I don’t think so.. They are kids… and that is a big house she is paying for many things…Go back and read that one TMz put up weeks ago.. it has some stuff but not all of it.. Know what u are saying before u speak.. Micheal is turning in his grave over this…

This is just getting rediculous. MJ's children live with her. MJ would be the first to say 'anything she needs'.

And thats the truth    

The kids are getting $60,000 a month, not to mention the $26,000 she gets, so why does she need more monies? Shouldn't some of the kids funds pay the electric since they are using it? I thought Michael had purchased Hayvenhurst many many years ago, so if it is paid off, then I can not see the utilities being thousands of dollars a month, especially when the weather is getting cooler and there is no need for the air conditioning at this time of year. I know there are alot of people living under that roof, but, you have to wonder if she is not helping out his brothers under the table.....

Does anyone know who this lady is pictured with Michael?

It was taken April 22nd, 2009. It looks like he is having a hard time holding her hand....lol :O) She kind of reminds me of a mixture of Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie rolled into one. He looks really healthy there too.
