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...

Why is money so important????

Michael was MURDERED, why is no one arrested???

Katherine and Joe and that whole family should pressure the LAPD and the DA!

Instead everyone is bickering about money! So who is worse than the other? They all SUCK A$$!

RIP Michael, with friends and family like these, you are far better off wherever you are ...

Joe Jackson, give it up. Michael paid his dues and then some. He owes you nothing (really, did he ever?), hasn't for a long, long, long time and most certainly not in death. Time for the other Jackson boys to step up and keep the old guy alive until his time is up. I'm sure the monies for the likely short-lived reality show can buy his Geritol. Go Katherine! Go Branca and McClain! The three of you are the lesser of the evils in this for sure.

so wrong    

it's already been reported that MJ's kids are in therapy; Paris walks around wearing her father's shirts all day, Prince 1 doesn't talk and Blanket spends his day crying. Oh god, how are these poor children going to survive this, they can't be protected from all this.

The court is over, TMZ where is the updates please

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson's mother has withdrawn her objections to the appointment of two longtime Jackson associates as executors of the singer's will.

The surprise announcement Tuesday came from Katherine Jackson's attorney Adam Streisand, who said his client feels it's time the fighting ended.

Streisand says Katherine Jackson no longer objects to the appointment of attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain to oversee the singer's estate. Streisand says the mother feels her actions are in the best interest of her son's children.

A judge says he will make the formal appointment after resolving whether Jackson's father can challenge the appointments. Joe Jackson was omitted from his son's will.

Lawyers for the estate were ordered back to argue to matter.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY MRS. JACKSON NEEDS $60,000. PER MONTH TO RUN A HOME FOR HER AND MICHAEL'S THREE CHILDREN UNLESS, HER OTHER CHILDREN ARE DEPENDENT UPON HER? From all reports, Michael earned more than enough to be mortgage free of his mother's home. He made sure his mother and children were financially secure, MINUS, that ZERO father of his. I think, all of us, who are able to see through the elaborate schemes of trying to, BANK HER DRY, should go to her, as a body, and try and talk some sense into her. She appears to be totally naive of her enemies. God help her!!!

I don't understand what game the Jackson are playing, didn't Latoya just told TMZ to listen to what her father has to say. What changed for Mrs KJ. May be her new lawyer realized that she was playing with the fire. So Latoya, Randy and Joe are on each other side. And the rest are on their mothers. I wish Janet could come out and support her mother i am tired of seeing Latoya she is on sick women.

Joe Jackson and Billie Jean Jackson I suggest you both go away and crawl under a stone and don't come back. Nobody is interested in either of you.

Poor Michael, what you had to put up with!!!

TMZ what is happening with the investigation?
Pull your fingers out and do some work.

Love you always Michael xx
