Joe Jackson Wants Money from MJ's Estate

11/6/2009 6:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson Joe Jackson claims there was "no justification" for him to be excluded from getting money from Michael Jackson's estate ... and now he's asking a judge to grant him a monthly allowance.

Joe just filed papers in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming he's "entitled to his own independent family allowance."

In the docs, Leonard Rowe -- a guy who claims to have been MJ's manager -- says Michael used to give his mother Katherine up to $60,000 a month to live on, and that Michael instructed her to give half of it to Joe.

Joe claims Michael's estate has "earned more than $100 million dollars in the first seven (7) weeks following Michael Jackson's death" and is "well able to afford a family allowance for Joe Jackson."

Joe says he has $15,425 in total monthly expenses, including the following:

the jacksons-- $2,500 eating out
-- $2,000 for air travel
-- $3,000 for hotel bills
-- $1,000 for groceries
-- $1,200 for rent
-- $50 in charitable contributions

UPDATE -- Howard Weitzman, one of the attorneys the Special Administrators for Michael Jackson's Estate, tells TMZ: "The Special Administrators have been made aware that Joe Jackson filed papers asking to be paid a family allowance from the Estate. It was quite surprising to learn of the request. Mr. Jackson's Petition will be considered as are all requests for money from Michael's Estate."

What's the matter Joe, your new gig not working out?
The entire Jackson family (yes even Katherine) sucked the life out of Michael. Joe is shamless, the world knows how Michael felt about him.
Karma Joe, KARMA.

Oh, nice profile photo, he looks like the creature from ALIEN. Give us a kiss so we can see your 400 teeth, ya slimeball! Maybe Micheal Jackson wouldn't have been so screwed up if Joe had been blasted with a laser rifle by Sigourney Weaver back around 1975! Give it a few more years and Weaver may have the use of time travel and Michael can start his career over again like some normal kind of kid.

They were in it for the money    

Ha Ha and HA! Why do any of the family members NOT mentioned in the Will keep trying to buck the system? All they are doing is spending money foolishly. I swear, if this devil catfish man succeeds, which he won't, it will open the door wide open for the rest of the leeches to grab some of that cash. Devil Catfish knows good and well if Katherins goes before him, he ain't getting NOTHING! Same goes for those loser sons of her that have been leeching for all these years. WTF is this? Michael dies and they all think they won the Lottery? the ONLY money he could ever get if Katherine goes 1st is whatever she has left in a bank account which is being depleted as we speak. I bet the lawyers have tied her up as far as Joe goes, same for those sons of hers.
