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.

77. Give me a break with all the threats and stalking you have done on here for the last
few months. Lady if TMZ is sick of anyone it is you and your multiple personalities. You have
broken so many TMZ rules it is unbelievable. Some of the old posters here remember your threats
so you can save that line to entertain your trolls with.

@ Peoples Court

Are you unemployed, confined to your home or 12 years old? Why are you spending this much time writing about a dead man? You sound obssessed. I mean , seriously it sounds like you have been doing research, combing through videos and dedicated your life to Michael Jackson. Why?????....

Please get help. Find a job, a hobby, anything, join a church group, do something!. You sound a little unstable. There has to be people in the real world that want to be your fiend. Don't lose yourself in the internet. It's not healthy!

RIP, Michael Jackson. You are SO deeply missed all over this world.

Yes, I think that's true...it's all a scam. probably in house trollers on TMZ.

Hey, once there's more info released regarding Mike and the investigation, I won't ever come back to this site. I hate TMZ, never even heard of it before MJ.

They'll lose 90% of their viewers once the MJ saga is done.

period!

Ok people. Remember this is for the story at hand, not interpersonal messages that are totally off topic.
Branca and McClain. These men should be paid for the work they have done. With all that has been put before them, I think they have done a decent job. They understand the intricacies of Michael Jackson’s business far better than anyone else ever could. The quip about getting more money because of Joe Jackson, I doubt that’s accurate. They have been bombarded by far worse than him.

As for receiving "extraordinary compensation for the work most executors never have to do” – hey, they made up the will, they knew what they were getting into and they agreed. I think their wages are probably already quite extraordinary. Problem is, if they got ticked off and walked away from their duties, it would be years and likely millions of dollars before the Estate ever got sorted out. I continue to hope and pray they have Michael and his children’s best interests at heart. If they are true in heart and intent, I hope they are allowed to continue their duties without further negative family interruption.

50. the peoples court (Tellit, TMZRO, W Gypsy).

I suggest you leave here soon. I know, as do we all, who you are and all your log in names. I've about had it with you. And will send this to attorney's if you dont knock it off.

You are sick, just like the other pervert on here (if not one and the same). You're slandering a person whom you don't know, never met, and I have had enough.

You think I'm messing. You just frikcin' wait and see. You don't know who I am, I know who you are!

So isn't it relatively easy to determine if the will is fake?

Team Branca is worth whatever they are asking for and then some! Not only did they have to contend with the family arguing they were somehow trying to swindle Michael's money, but Joe specifically, ran around telling sorted stories (like Omar Bhetti was MJ's son) as well as personally attacking Team Branca and the validity of the will.

Team Branca, most of his fans are on your side and thank you for the tack, care and dedication you are giving to Michael, his legacy and most importantly his children's futures even under the condition you began your duties. Keep Michael in your hearts always and it will always guide you in the right direction with the full support of his fans.

GO TEAM BRANCA!
