MJ's Brothers, Janet May Have Estate Claim

12/28/2009 5:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's sister, Janet, along with brothers, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy, are all listed as possible creditors in the Michael Jackson estate case -- this, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The docs do not state what Michael might owe Janet and his brothers. We do know Janet fronted some of the costs for Michael's funeral.

We spoke with MJ estate lawyer Howard Weitzman, who told TMZ Michael's brothers have an ongoing royalties claim and therefore were listed as potential creditors.

Also listed as a potential creditor -- Rev. June Juliet Gatlin, Michael's spiritual advisor.

I just cannot believe that Michael's brothers and sisters are still trying to get money from his estate. He's dead! Let him rest in peace.

RIP
Michael Jackson

Some of the brothers helped produce some of MJ's music so it could be they are not receiving royalties. Janet is ridiculous to ask for the money back for her 'contribution' to MJ's funeral. Let's see.

i would have thought they all got their royalties from jackson five stuff independent of each other ..mj used to say when he ws little he would get a check for two hundred thousand and he would get to buy some candy..since joe always split things evenly i would have thought they all would have had the same deal..maybe three t might have royalties comming because they recorded under his label

So will janet jackson get the money back from paying for most of Michael Jackson's funeral from the estate and are michael jackson brothers really apart of the estate because i have'nt heard anything or even michael jackson mentioning that they are in the michael jackson estate not even from michael jackson lawyer ?

They all had different companies...MJ Had Mijac (sp) and the rest had forgot the name but some one on here will remember..Too Much Christmas ....Can't wait until Holidays are over!..

Now back to the subject...As I said to begin with Non of the Jacksons are without Shame all... including Janet..Without Michael non of them would have had a career!!!

Right now they are all making money off of their Royalties but as time goes on it will not be as much and MJ's estate is the only thing that will make money...and that belongs to the Children!!!

There Reality Show is a bomb with out Michael and his Children so ...Here we go ...It will be very interesting from now on!

They are not asking for anything...it says they are all listed as possible creditors! I think there are companies that pay people for any royalties they are owed. It doesn't even state that they filed any papers towards a claim...tmz was just being nosey digging through paperwork and came across it!

I think some posters are not reading the article clearly. It said that the ESTATE is listing them as POTENTIAL creditors, not that they filed a claim.

If his music company paid them royalties in the past for their music, the estate probably intends to do so since his company is part of the claim. Weitzman is probably giving the court notice of expenditures from the estate.

As usual TMZ sensationalizes. And just to be clear, Janet was reimbursed for her deposit on the burial while they awaited the judge's release of funds.
