Michael Jackson's Parents at Legal War

11/10/2009 3:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

What a turn! Katherine and Joe Jackson are fighting each other in court ... right now.

katerine jackson and joe jackson

Katherine's new lawyer, Adam Streisand, is arguing to the judge that Joe has no legal standing to object to John Branca and John McClain as executors, nor does he have any standing to object to the validity of the will.

Streisand is arguing since Michael Jackson cut Joe out of the will, he has no dog in this fight.

During the fight, Billie Jean Jackson -- you know -- just stood up and said that she's an heir so she'll object ... so Joe's got that going for him.

Stay tuned...

I feel so bad for Kathrine. Dealing even with small estates are not easy, I can't imagine what she's going through. It doesn't give you time to grieve properly when so much is being thrown at you.

If MJ purposely left dad out of the will, then that's just too bad. He's going to have to learn to live like a normal human being instead of living like a king...

The more I see of this gang, the more amazed I am that Michael lived as long as he did and the more I understand why he was so sad.

Didn't Katherine herself contest the will not long ago, trying to oust Branca and McClain? And now she is OK with them.

Well, at least she is on the right track and finally battling Joe. I only wish it had been over the safety of her children when they were small, getting them away from Joe's fists - not over money.

idk why he is doing this, publicity maybe? our family has enough money to cover what we need in life. Despite what people may say, our family is not broke. Jackson's wont be broke!

Oh, shut up, you little Anti-Semite. They focus on whoever get the most clicks - including Arnie Klein who is of the Jewish faith.

Ha Ha, I really love how MJ set this up. Mama is taken care of while she is alive and Daddy has to ask her nicely for money. It was clever that the money is not her's to pass on so all those leeches better hope that she stays healthy.
If they divorced would she have to pay support to the dirt bag?

This article isn't clear. Is Katherine actually at the court house or just Streisand. Is Joe there or just Oxman?

It would be interesting to know if the actual spouses are facing off or just their lawyers.

The media has ridiculed,and name called MJ every chance they got! I wish tmz and the rest of the media would go to hell and leave the Jackson family alone! I just want to see the headline.."Arrest was made in Jackson death!" If MJ wanted his dad to have money he would have left him some,but he didn't he left it to his children,mom,and charities!
