Joe to MJ: Support Me in the Afterlife!

11/11/2009 11:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson made a promise to "always support" his dad and if the estate reneges on that promise Joe will take it to court -- this, according to Joe's lawyer.

Joe Jackson Michael Jackson

Attorney Brian Oxman tells TMZ Michael had repeatedly given Joe, Katherine, and other members of the family assurance that he would "always support" them ... even in the afterlife.

Oxman says Jackson -- in effect -- made a contract on which the family relied. He reiterated -- he's considering filing a creditor's claim if Joe is cut off financially.

The estate seems curiously supportive in giving Joe an allowance ... at least for the time being. But the clock is ticking on creditor's claims, so Joe may have to file one soon in order to preserve his right to go after the MJ estate.

Stay tuned...

Why don't Michael's siblings take care of their dad? Why is it that is was always Michael who was expected to take care of everyone?

The brothers have said in their reality show that they were glad that their father punished them. They are just fine with him. Michael did NOT appreciate being beaten. Let the brothers take care of their wonderful father!

For Jermaine to say that his father created the estate is a bunch of BS. All the hard work Michael did for 45 years and Joseph gets all the credit?

I don't see Katherine jumping in and offering her husband any of her money. I don't hear of Janet (millionaire) or any of the brothers offering to take care of Joeseph. He was their father too- not just Michael's.

Joseph wants $15,00 a month to live? I surely don't live on that much money. Old Joe needs to tighten his belt the same as the rest of America.

What a crock of $hit! I still smell a rat or a pack of them. What are the odds that the "deal" that Oxman so openly said in court yesterday was Katherine would no longer oppose Team Branca if Joe got an allowance to keep him out of the spotlight ?!?!

The timing of the whole thing is just odd. Why didn't he step forward earlier? Why now? Rats I tell you, I smell rats.

This situation is getting so down in the gutter despicable !! Joe and the other members of the family who it is claimed MJ promised to support even in the after life have NO SHAME! These pple are just plain flesh-eating vultures! No wonder MJ was so unhappy and created his own family. Why dont they leech on Janet; Michael was weak, it seemed.

@Dee,

If I'm not mistaken, the no-contest clause applies to the beneficiaries named in the Will & Trust-- not others trying to get a piece of the action.
