Michael Jackson's Kids - Best Allowance Ever!

1/15/2010 10:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson's kids just got their allowance upped -- from $60,000!

TMZ obtained court documents showing that Wednesday, the judge in the Michael Jackson estate case increased the monthly allowance, which totals $60,000 for Prince, Paris, and Blanket.

Sources tell TMZ the reason for the change -- the accounts guardian and lawyers underestimated the monthly expenses.

We don't know how much they're getting now, but it's a good bet Prince won't be slinging newspapers on your front porch anytime soon.

19. Lovely allowance but umm, since when does it cost 20k a month for up keep on some kids? I hope Momma Katherine isn't dividing up the $$ to her out of work, no talent, grown children. I pray to the gods that MJ's kids are not being taken advantage of by their uncles, aunts and cousins but I have a feeling they are.. By the way, anyone watch the Jackson show on A&E? I watched half of the first episode and won't watch it again. Thought it was funny that the majority of the music played in the background was all Michael's songs. R.I.P Michael & May the Gods watch over your children.

That's exactly what's going on... the other Jackson grandchildren (especially, the ones closer in age to the MJ3) are benefiting off their cousins inheritance. 3 of Jermaine's kids are now being home-schooled by the same tutors, yet somehow I doubt Jermaine is paying their tuition. Every time you see a photo of the MJ3 out in public enjoying a film or amusement park or a private shopping spree, make a note of how many non-security members of their entourage you see... those kids foot the bill for everything. As long as MJ's kids are included in the event -- whatever it is, Katherine can submit the entire bill to the Estate (and later the Trust) for reimbursement as an expense. It's sad.

I just pray MJ's beautiful children are not brainwashed into believing that it will someday be THEIR responsibility to financially support the next generation of Jacksons like their father had too. But since it appears the only other kids they associate with are other Jackson grandchildren and Jermaine is publicly telling anyone who will listen that his kids are now "super-close" and "best friends" with MJ's kids that may be unavoidable.

God bless MJ's babies.

Heck addy...have they been lucky? Let's all hope so.

And it might be best not to waste time fantacizing about $$$ or what it can (or can't!) buy.

Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

I'm for sure no preacher addy! lol... but I've always thought that above quote is the best policy/insurance for acquiring happiness here or elsewhere.

Oh oh we are quoting bible verses. I'm so excited! I want to quote my favorite one everyone knows. Or at least they know half of it.

Luke 6:37 "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged.." everyone quotes that part but they leave out the rest of it "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:"

The next verse is hardly ever read after that verse which is
Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

I love these to verses together because in simple terms they say judge and you will be judged with the same measure, condemn and you will be condemned with the same measure, and give and you will recieve with the same measure. :) I love that!!!!

Tellitlikeitis, ric, antwone etc.

it's pretty clear that you absolutely Hate Michael Jackson and everything he stood for, but millions of people do not share your opinion I'm afraid.

Nothing you say can persuade people to hate michael Jackson and nothing they say can persuade you to love Michael Jackson, so why even bother?

The bottom line is you can hate Michael Jackson all you want, but you can't convince me that he was a pedophile without substantiated evidence, which by the way noboby - not even the freaking FBI have been able to provide.

you are a preacher for sure. you made me spill my tea with that one. lol. you know, u read about all the money they spend and the luxury they enjoy and you feel stupid for sitting behind a computer engaging in cyber war with people you've never met. let's not make this blog a war zone but a place where posters provide indepth info than operators of the blog themselves. thx for the verse. it's really inspirational.

PLEASE..... keep the children out of the spotlight. Michael always protected them and so should you, TMZ. What the children get, or don't get, as an allowance is NONE of our business. They're far more entitled to it than all these lying greedy creditors.

How much money do his kids really need? If it's this bad now, I hate to see it when they become teens! I might actually plan comment more on this in the future on my own website project.

Who cares if some of Jermaine's kids are going on outtings with Michael's kids -- or if they're being homeschooled by the same tutor? And if Katherine is submitting the bill to the estate? The kids just lost their only parent. I'm guessing it is God-send for them to have some kids their own age to talk to and play with and be close to. I'm sure it takes their mind off the loss -- if only for a little while each day. And the more time passes, the easier it will get for them.

The one thing I was glad about when Michael died, was that his kids were able to be enveloped by the Jackson family -- and to be loved by them. Their grandmother, their uncles, their aunts, their cousins -- even their grandfather. That's where they seem to want to be, and that's where they belong. In my heart, I believe that that's where Michael would want them to be too. After all, he left the kids to his mother. And he loved his family (and they him) despite the dysfunction. So what if some of the estate money pays for Jermaine's kids? It's not like the estate will ever run out of money. What's most important is that MJ's kids have a chance to get to know their family and are supported emotionally during this terrible time.

Financially, the kids will never want for anything if they all live to be 100.

This statement is somewhat delusional. To say that "millions of people do not share your opinion I'm afraid" is not true. In fact I am sure that sentiment for and against would be 50-50 at best.

Of course you would never change your mind if your mind is closed. Your love for a man just because he could sing and dance will never let you think otherwise. Let me ask you, what is "substantial evidence" of child molestation? Are you aware that the majority of child molestation cases just have the testimony of the child because of the time between the molestation and it's report? Do you think it impossible that evidence was gotten rid of far before the FBI got on the scene?

Speaking of which, my favorite rationale of the FBI evidence is that somehow because there was no child porn in the pc's confiscated he is innocent. Wow. If you say that the it's possible to delete the evidence from the pc, all of a sudden Jacko fans, who strangely enough all work in IT, flood in and say that if you delete data it can be recovered. If you come back and say "well, that's not true if you re-format the hard-drive" they are silent. If you say "what if he had this porn on a floppy disk, or an external zip drive?" they are silent. "what if he didn't use the computers to look for child porn at all? After all there WERE pedophiles before the home computer you know" Silence.

The worst part is that these are COMMON SENSE observations. Most, if not all, of the arguments against him molesting children could be argued away by common sense. Yet much of the rantings of the "Jacksontologists" (since it's like scientology minus Tom Cruise) are far from rational. Let's list some of the rational thought, shall we?

-If you DARE have an opinion that MJ was a molester you get a variation of this "MJ was not a pedophile, YOU must be a pedophile because you like talking about it.". Ahh yes, the old "I'm rubber and you're glue" defense.

-I have seen here on SEVERAL occasions supposedly peace loving (because MJ was ALL about love, right?) adults wish for the DEATH of 2 children because they accused MJ of molesting them. The DEATH! And not just on this site, WORLDWIDE. Now why would other children come to light just to face this? And the worst part is that there ARE rational MJ fans that know this is wrong but they, (wait for it), stay silent. But they will jump you if you say that the couch be bought looked tacky.

-"Why would you come to an MJ site (fill in the rest)..." Because we didn't. This is NOT a Michael Jackson fan site. It is TMZ not MJZ.

And many more.


So please don't "be afraid" that millions don't share my views, because trust me millions do.
