Janet Jackson Fronted $49K for MJ's Funeral

11/10/2009 8:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The only Jackson who was flush with cash -- Janet -- put her money on the line to cover some of the cost of Michael's funeral, this according to legal documents that were just unsealed.

In the docs, it shows Janet signed an "initial contract with Forest Lawn for mortuary services in the amount of $103,578.50" and paid $49,372.50 of the bill up front.

According to the docs, the special administrators of Michael's estate were granted permission to pay Janet back the $49k and to pick up the remainder of her outstanding tab.

It's too bad the tax payers are ending up paying for this MJ guy. He was one sick weirdo.

Janet did the right thing. She and Michael had a special relationship. I just wish she would speak up for Michael more in the media. Joe made a lot of mistakes but he is still deserves respect asMichael's father. La toya said that he and his father reconciledtheir relationship years ago as seen at Michael's trial when hisfather held his hand into court. He also drove him home after thetrial which was 3 hour drive to Neverland. Its on you tube. Also itswas Joe who staged multiple interventions at Michael's home in Vegas.People dont give him credit. You can hold people to things they did 30years ago. People have the right to change. He deserved some money. Hestarted Michael career
