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...

@ #38. God bless you Katherine. Thank you for standing up against this monster on behalf of your three beautiful orphaned grandchildren.

The children are not orphans as their Mothers are still alive.

# 35 I agree with you 100%.

This man was beat as a child,ridiculed as a teenager, accused of the most horrific crimes against children as an adult,accused of trying to change his skin color even though he was actually battling with a life changing skin condition, that once again everyone ridiculed him about. Battling Pain, as a result of a terrible burn to his scalp as well as suffering from Lupus.
He was made out to be Weirdo, by the media, the world but most of all his own country.

In return he gave us...MUSIC THAT WILL LIVE ON AND BE ENJOYED BY GENERATIONS TO COME.

DANCE MOVES THAT WILL NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN....HE INSPIRED SO MANY DANCERS TO TAKE THE STEP AND MAKE THERE DREAMS COME TRUE

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO CHARITY.......AND I MEAN MILLIONS!!!

WAS ONE OF THE NICEST CELEBRITIES TO HIS FANS. HE REALLY APPRECIATED THEM, LOVED THEM, UNDERSTOOD THEM. HE GAVE THEM HIS TIME.

RAISED, BY ALL ACCOUNTS 3 BEAUTIFULLY MANNERED, EDUCATED, KIND CHILDREN.

HE WAS KIND,GENEROUS,GIFTED AND SO MISUNDERSTOOD..AND YET HE STILL MANAGED TO SMILE...VERY RARELY SAID A BAD WORD ABOUT ANYONE AND ALWLAYS MANAGED TO HAVE THAT BEAUTIFUL SMILE ON HIS FACE.

HE WASN'T PERFECT..HE HAD FAULTS (as we all do ) BUT HE WAS A GREAT HUMAN BEING...AND A GIFT. IMAGINE IF THERE HAD NEVER BEEN A MICHAEL JACKSON........JUST IMAGINE THE LOSS OF BEAUTIFUL DANCE AND MUSIC. THE INFLUENCE THAT HE HAD ON THIS GENERATION OF POP STARS.....BEYONCE...CHRIS BROWN..TIMBERLAKE.....USHER....THE LIST GOES ON.

HE WAS A GIFT..

I am glad Mrs. J is finally putting her foot up Joe's A@@...

It was MJ money and he left it to whoever he wanted to, MJ is gone and he was the only one who endured all the pain and did all the work, Sorry Joe.. The bus has just passed you.. so now be nice to Kate and maybe she will buy you some groceries or give you a gift card to buy some...maybe TMZ crew can all pitch in to buy one of your stupid grills and Harvey can show it off on his show!

BTW..you have kids everywhere put them up to do something..

To #36 Love is the answer - I agree with your comments. MJ was an "American" music legend, and yet, we fans from overseas, made him our Music Icon. We appreciate him & treasure him. Still remembered our brothers flying to Japan to see the "Bad" concert & to Taiwan to see "History" tour, now so many years later, my siblings & I still remain fans, loyal fans of MJ. No matter what professions you're in, whether you're a Barrister, Lawyer, Attorney or retired Banker, if you're a fan, you're a fan for life. They enjoyed This Is It in Hong Kong, Vancouver & Dallas. Amazing performer. Good to hear that KJ hired Streisand who specializes in Estates. Very impressive credentials. Go Branca team, take care of business, we trust you wont let his fans down. GO TEAM GO. I also hope KJ will look after Joe, I honestly believe MJ would have wanted his dad to live out the remainder of his life in relatively comfortable condition. Good luck & all the best to everyone.

Poor Michael. Why is this family doing this to him? They are making a mockery of someone who was so special. There is a soul crying right now,wishing his children didn't have to see all the horrors he witnessed and tried so hard to run away and hide from. I wish he had left those children to someone outside the family. That family is self-destructive. In the end, its the innocent that suffer. The three sweet innocent children.

I do not see a legal war. If Michael Jackson wanted Daddy Jackson to get anything from him, he would of put it in his will. Michael did not do that..
Michael did not want his daddy dearest to get a penny, any judge that does not see that must be blind.

For Sure    

Now Maybe you will all listen to me about Joe Jackson:

Murray = Joe Jackson
Thomme = Joe Jackson
LasVegas People = Joe Jackson

All the body Guards =Joe Jackson

Everyone around MJ at the end had major ties to Joe Jackson!!!!

I hope Murray turns on Joe Jackson.....

Kenny Ortega knew what was going on and was actually tring to help MJ He thought MJ would be fine in UK ..He and MJ had it all worked out as far as the perfomances!!!!

I always said JJ would eventually hang himself....

Keep going Katherine
The truth will prevail!

Wow, some of the comments I read are funny, and some disturbing. Be careful what you write, it might come back & haunt you. MICHAEL JACKSON, fans from Calgary, Vancouver, Canada, Dallas, and Hong Kong will always love you & remember you. All the best to Kathleen & Joe, hope things could work out for you both. TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE KIDS. WE LOVE YOU, PRINCE, PARIS & BLANKET.

Branca and McClain are involved in Michael's murder and Joe KNOWS! That's why he wants control.

Greed is a sin, they will all rot in hell. Better sooner than later!

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

Finally Katherine Got some "balls"

Pity she had none when the kids were growing up and the azz h*le was beating the life out of them! By the way the kids got their musical ability from KJ so its not because of JJ that MJ has talent! And MJ would prob be alive now if he had a more loving caring family instead of people who everytime they saw him wanted something!

There is a major poll running over at www.tinyurl.com/evilgood as to whether Michael Jackson was good or evil. Evil is currently in the lead! I think this poll is being recorded in some sort of record book, anyways, everybody go vote for good!!

Go Katherine!
Don't blame Katherine for actually mourning her son's death and perhaps being manipulated by Joe and his loser friends during her time of grieving.
Glad she has seen the light.
