Shocking news on the estate in the first article from CNN it looked like Joe was going to get money from the estate then it was postoned. the most sickening part was when Jermaine said Joe was the estate.

What does that mean?"Joe is the estate. No he's not.Jermaine is
sick. Yes MJ will get his lifetime achievement award. To bad he
didnt get that when he was alive. He had put in a lifetime, all
those hard years of work.

Good morning everyone! Trying to work and play at the same time!

Yeah I was pretty sick to my stomach when Jermaine said Joe IS the estate, and then followed it up with "He created the estate". WTF???? Joe Jackson created the person who created the estate, and that's as far as his involvement goes. MICHAEL built up that estate with his hard work over many years. True, he almost lost it near the end of his life because of his reckless spending and not paying his bills (which I think is his accountant's fault), but the estate is solvent now and IT DOES NOT BELONG TO JOE. IT BELONGS TO MICHAEL'S CHILDREN, HIS MOTHER AND CHARITY. I can't even imagine how they are going to allow Joe to get an "allowance" as he isn't even mentioned in the will!!!! And 20,000 a month for an 81 year old man? WTH does he spend it on? Oh, I forgot, booze, cigars, Viagra, hotel rooms and hoes. I hope he gets genital warts or something equally disgusting. I would not wish him to die but yeah, some annoying, disfiguring condition like that -

Jermaine's comments yesterday about MJ being wrong about being abused by Joe and Joe "being the estate" make me livid. Now I truly hate Jermain for basically calling MJ a liar and trying to rewrite the past. JJ must have promised to give him some of MJ's money when he gets the allowance. With the Jacksons it is always about money. I used to really like Jeramine. Now I think they are all money hungry people who are DANCING ON MICHAEL JACKSON'S GRAVE. They are despicable. The lowest of the low. They do not even have the decency to PRETEND they are sad their brother/son died. It is all a giant money grab. They probably wished he died years ago. It is such a gold mine for them. No wonder he stayed away from them all these years. They are just leeches.

Hello MiMi and Deb. Spike Lee Huh.I cant believe Branca is
going to give it to him either.Thats what each child gets right.
$20,000. They know Michael would not approve. Father or not. He
was left out the will for a reason. Unless Joe is the "charity"
LOL. NOT.

Thank you Mimi for the post on the video Spike Lee and Michael had a mutual respect for each other. Spike did a great job.

Hi PYT! Yeah, Joe probably feels "entitled" to the money since he "beat" Michael into stardom. But see, I don't buy that argument because if the beatings were what instilled Michael's ability to become a superstar, then why didn't his brothers achieve the same level of fame? They got beat too, right?

Joe needs to shut up. He makes me sick.

I just hope someone is keeping a close eye on the kids money and if they do give Joe anything it is from Katherine's share.I feel the will should be honored as MJ wrote it.

Joe sucks he should not be getting money.micahel had ambition
and drive.Joe's beating him didnt play a part in him becoming a icon. branca did. joe only made him and his brothers equally
famous.the rest is michael's creative genius. PERIOD.
i hope Branca doesnt do it.
i hope Jermaine doesnt go to the Grammys and accept MJ's award.
Let us pray.

I doubt they will take it out of her monthly stipend because remember she can barely afford to pay the electric bill on 26,000 a month (rolling eyes). I don't think they should give it to him AT ALL, he was NOT mentioned in the will, and there was the no contest clause - ie, if anyone contested it they were out of the will. I don't get how, if Katherine is okay with it, and the estate lawyers are okay with it, Joe can get any money UNLESS it is debited to Katherine's 40% share that she will get when the estate is settled. That is the only way I can see them doing it - if they take it away from the kids that is just plain WRONG.

And while we are on the subject of money and the kids - I totally believe the money for their basketball orgy over Thanksgiving came out of the M3's "entertainment allowance" and their cousins were invited to join them. Fine - but who paid for their food, transportation, etc? M3, THAT'S WHO!!! Those kids may never see a penny of what their father left them, with the outright disgusting spending going on. Hmmmm... maybe that is where Michael learned it from - his parents.
