Jackson Executors -- Beyond the Call of Duty

12/17/2009 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson The executors of Michael Jackson's estate have filed documents, explaining why they should be entitled to more than the statutory fee most executors get -- a big reason ... Joe Jackson.

According to legal docs filed with the court, co-executors John Branca and John McClain had to defend the estate from a steady barrage of attacks by Joe Jackson and, until recently, by Katherine Jackson.

They also claim they've been working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week since they were appointed. And, they claim, their "business reputations and the character and reputation of Michael Jackson were repeatedly assaulted by personal and unfounded attacks" which they were forced to correct publicly in order to protect the Michael Jackson brand.

Branca and McClain say at the time Michael Jackson died ... Michael and his businesses were defendants in 11 separate lawsuits and it only got worse after his death.

Branca and McClain want more than the statutory fee -- which is a percentage of the value of the estate. They're asking for "extraordinary compensation" for the work most executors never have to do.

EVERYONE


I just realized that beside myself, there is someone else who posts here with name "helen", so note that there are 2 Helens.

Obviously she thinks Branca is doing a good job whilst I think he should be charged for FRAUD. helen, I respect your opinion and i have NO intention or interest to correspond with you for I come here only to post links. And believe me when I say, to say that I am aware of all the petitions and business dealing going on would be an UNDERSTATEMENT, I got this bayb, I am on top of this matter.

158. More Molestation Charges:
On November 18, 2003 Jackson's Neverland Ranch was searched by 70 investigators in hopes of finding evidence that would corroborate the charges of 13-year-old boy, who told police that Jackson sexually molested him. A warrant for Jackson's arrest was also issued and on November 20, Jackson, who had been out of town during the search, surrendered himself to police. He was charged with "lewd or lascivious acts" with a child younger than 14 under section 288(a) of the California Penal Code.
Jackson was charged with seven counts of child molestation and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent to commit that felony, in February and March 2003, all regarding the same boy under 14.

so wrong    

And ONE more true fact, then I'm done with this BS, if you read the actual Case Summary, as noted before, there are very FEW creditors and claims against MJ's estate, very few, other than those nutheads trying to claim MJ was their father, their husband, etc..

For a man worth billions who apparently, via TMZ BS, never paid his bills, there are only about 4 or 5 viable claims. That is nothing for an estate of this magnitude and wealth. Nothing! You put any Will into Probate that is NOTHING!

sick f@ckers on this site, sick people who work at TMZ, don't know sh@t about anything!

F@ck the press, MJ you're the best!

Wacko Jacko

A sicko child molester who claims he's only had two plastic surgeries BUT he looks nothing like he did back in '71 and his face alone scares adults. He also somehow "turned" white because back 30 years ago he was black. He a ugly but, face it, he's a freak.

There's already a hearing set up for the 28th regarding the will. Why don't you let the people who are acutally in MJ's life handle this, huh.

If you're so concerned, then go down to LA Superior Court and file something saying you have proof MJ's will is invalid. I believe it's invalid too, but I'm not involved in this in any way, shape or form, nor are any of you!

Otherwise, I'd say let those who are involved handle this.

MJ fans are nuts sometimes. Gettin' all up in his business like this.

Doesn't matter if MJ had 50 plastic surgeries really...he was a beatiful man to me at ALL ages & stages of his life. Wouldn't it be nice if we had more people who cared about people & this world the way he did. Sadly, I think he was far too sensitive to be in a position of such 'high celebrity' but he did the best he could & he was the best human being he could possibly be. He had struggles in his personal life but he left this world a better place thru his 'good acts' than when he entered it. How many of us could withstand the horrific scrutiny that this man had to endure yet manage to accomplish all he did thru his talent, his kindness, & his generosity? Damn few of us. Not me. God bless him for what he tried to do while he was here whether he had 20 nose jobs, a cleft put in his chin, blah, blah, blah. Isn't it supposed to be what's on the INSIDE THAT COUNTS??

Yeah, but OMG have you seen recent photos of him, last year too, he was all decked out looking like a model from frickin' Brooks Brothers (my favorite) or Armani, straight out of GQ.

I'm sorry, that man was, is and will always be sexy as h@ll. I really liked his conservative dress too, always decked out with his cartier or rolex watch. Dude is hot, hot, hot!

You are the one who brought up Dennis yesterday. You were trying to make the point that since the email name was Harvey Orcutt, not Dennis Harvey Orcutt, that you were not the sex offender. Nobody said anything about Dennis but you.

The liar is you, Harvey. And I noticed you signed one of your posts nightmare before christmas; that is what you are to all the children who live around you.

God help you, mister. Believe it or not I prayed for you last night, that you can get past your inner demons and have a life aside from posting at TMZ from morning until the middle of the night. I was not here but I saw the times that you posted and you were here about 18 hours. You are SICK, Harvey. And people deserve to know about you because they might have kids on here. Although I would not let my kid come within a mile of TMZ. It is gross, profane, and there are a lot of sickos in here. Including you.

Queen of Pop? Jacko acts like diva

Just call him Ms. Jackson.

Staffers at a posh London hotel are buzzing about what a diva Michael Jackson has been during a recent stay there — and how he went incognito by registering as a woman.

“Jacko would certainly give J. Lo a good run for her money on the diva stakes by bringing a team of 10 security guards to look after him and his two kids — Prince, 10, and 9-year-old Paris Michael — on their whistle-stop visit to London,” reports the London Evening Standard, which says Jackson has placed two “scary bouncers” by the elevator doors on the floor he’s booked for him and his entourage to make sure that no one can get any access to him. No word on the whereabouts of little Blanket.

We have many big stars staying here, but Michael is very fussy,” the paper quoted a staffer at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, where the presidential suite goes for $5,800 a night. “He has a massive group with him and they are taking up the whole top floor of the place and making our jobs difficult ... because it is all top secret and we have to make sure that nobody knows he is here.”

Perhaps the point that really sparks the staff’s ire is that Jackson has been tight with the tips. “Madonna always gives us money,” gripped one. “Jacko hasn’t yet.”
