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.

Story developing ...

mj could never say no to his mother or his family.it made him feel too bad.thats why when they would push him to tour or whatever he would avoid them and self medicate. i love mj but he was atortured soul and just wanted to be loved.his family manipulated him.doesnt mean they didnt care about him or that he didnt care about them.problem is the lawyeers are NOT emotionally tied to the family like mj was..this is gonna be hard on this family.lawyers dont care

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

You fool the children already contribute a great part of their 60,000. a month (that's a month folks) to this GREEDY family! In addition Katherine has her 26,000.+ a month. It's not costing Katherine a red cent to house them. It's THEIR house anyway not HERS! PEOPLE WISE UP TO THIS WOMAN! It's always been this way, ALL OF MJs life! NOW HIS CHILDRENS LIVES!
THIS GREEDY FAMILY (which Katherine is the head of) SHOULD NOT RULE!

Whenever Joe wanted $ from Michael, Michael said Katherine would ask him for it---and she would and MJ would give it to her. She is just a bad as the rest...excluding Janet.

This entire family needs to go somwhere and sit down. MJ is probably turning over in his grave watching the greed from them unfold before the eyes of his fans, but then again he knew his family better than we ever would.
I don't think these actions are voluntarily being displayed from his mother, someone has to be in the background advising her.
The Judge made the choice to allow her to dispute his will, and this should have never been allowed to happen.
I hope these children grow up, and get as far away from this dysfunction as possible.

Requesting a bigger allowance is one thing but then I think the judge needs to ask who else lives in the house and what exactly they contribute, If its Jermaines kids then he should have a certain amount to pay If Randy lives there then he should have to contribute too, what about Omer if he lives there then same thing.(nothing against Omer) But if something isnt done then she could have the whole family move in and just keep asking for a bigger allowance to support them all. Maybe she needs to show an itemized bill on where the 26,000 is going, Michaels three kids get their own allowance so where is hers going?

Um, I don't think she needs extra allowance just to pay electric bill... ridiculous! Someone need to tell her how to be more consertative with electric use. Have she heard of turning lights off when not using it? I do not feel bad if she lives in a mansion. She has to face it. She chose to live in a big mansion = outrageous electric bill.

Oh wait. They are filming reality tv show. I bet this is the culprit of electric bill. I think the producers should foot the bill.

YOU KNOW, IT'S HARD TO BE PARTICLE, MICHAEL IS GONE AND ALL EVERYBODY IS THINKING ABOUT IS HOW THEY CAN GET INTO HIS WALLET. NOW IF HIS MOTHER NEEDS MORE MONEY, I THINK THAT SHE NEEDS TO MOVE TO A PLACE THAT SHE WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD. I WISH SOMEONE WAS GIVING ME ALMOST 30,000 A MONTH.BUT WHO AM I, SOME ONE WHO LIVES OFF A MONTHLY CHECK AND CAN MAKE. SO WHO AM I TO OPEN MY MOUTH. EVERYBODY, IS LIVING OFF OF MICHAEL'S COAT TAIL. MICHAEL JACKSON, RIP
