Michael Jackson Executors Want 10%

1/22/2010 6:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson's executors want 10% of the profits from most things Michael Jackson.

In legal docs filed today, lawyers for John Branca and John McClain asked the court to green light compensation to the tune of 10% of all profits, excluding profits from "This Is It" and profits from the Sony/ATV and Mijac catalog.

Howard Weitzman, Branca and McClain's lawyer, notes that the estates of other big musicians pay out 15 to 25 percent of profits to people who run their businesses after death.

Chump change compared to being broke in 2 years if administered by the Jackson family.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

They should get 10% just for having to put up with shi* from Joe Jackson, Leaonard Rowe and the other maggot in, OR close to all things Jackson which MJ clearly despised!

They are the executors because MJ wanted them to be!!! 'Memba that!

Why does Catherine not pay someone to run that show. She is smart.
No need to pay attorneys massive, crazy money to hire someone else to run it.
