Jackson Estate to Joe -- Off the Money Train!

1/22/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Estate won't pay Joe JacksonMichael Jackson's estate does not want to pay Joe Jackson an allowance, because Michael Jackson did not want his dad to be a beneficiary under the will and Joe wants to use the money for lavish expenses -- not maintenance.

According to legal docs just filed, estate lawyers say Joe was never legally dependent on Michael Jackson during his life.

And, according to estate lawyers, the so-called "maintenance expenses" Joe wants include vacations, air travel, hotels, assistants and legal fees.

And Joe Jackson says the allowance will include money so he can "support his children or grandchildren."

Joe, you're a classless, shameless pig. You've done your job; raised your kids, albeit questionably. Now leave them alone. No one owes you anything.

You reap what you sow, Joe.

He is probably referring to his daughter that he has with another woman.

Joe needs the money to support his children/grandchildren. Now that's a joke. First of all Joe's children are grown. Joe's grandchildren minus Michael's children have parents to provide for them. Michael's children were provided for in his will.

If Michael wanted Joe to have money he would have mentioned Joe in his will at some point and time. He didn't so that should be the end of it whether Joe likes it or not.

How long is Michael suppose to support his family? Supporting his mother, yes. She will be responsible for his children. But supporting brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and Joe, hell no.

for God's sakes give the old man some cash and give him credit for keeping his 6 boys out of jail during a period when they could have easily become criminals. he turned them into musicians and undoubtedly, they are among successful people in America. MJ woudnt have been King of Pop if Joe hadnt established the Jackson 5 in the first place. will you people ask your old father or grandfather to get a job when you have enough money to support them?

رأيت شخصا الذين يبدو أن مايكل جاكسون الذي انتقل الى خليفة برج في دبي 2 قبل أيام من افتتاحه. الشخص الذي كان محاطا ما يشبه الجيش من حراسه الشخصيين ، وكان يرتدي قناعا ، وكان الشعر القصير. وسأحاول تقديم المزيد من التفاصيل ما استطيع العثور عليهم.

Michael Jackson's Voice    

So, the ole Bull Dog wants money to support " HIS" children and grandchildren? Uh Yeah RIGHT! He wants to live a lavish lifestyle that he MOOCHED off the literal blood sweat and tears of all his kids! There was a VERY good reason Mike left him NOTHING! As a former kid of an abusive parent, I wouldnt give that pathetic creep a dime either!! I hope McClain and Brnaka can stop this and send ole Joe off to the poor house WHERE HE BELONGS!!! that money is for Mike's Kids and Mother and his chosen cherities! Joe is not one of those listed!! All he wants is to have money to buy his nasty hoochies in Vegas stuff and bang desporate ho's in hotels. JOE you arent fooling ANYONE! Michael never wanted to give YOU a dime and you need to just collect a meager stipend from S.S.I like every other retired person in the world. Michael was truly gifted and talented, He would have become a Super Star with or with out you fool! Mike's Talent was GOD given! You have NO claims there!! Go crawl back under your rock old lizzard face!!

Are you people serious?? Look, worry about your own children. Or worry about the children of Haiti or the children in Africa or the children right here in America that are homeless and hungry and abused. Michael Jackson's children will be just fine.

Regardless of what anyone thinks if not for Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson would have never been the person he was. Case Closed.

I think this is a battle of wills. JJ hates Branca and then JJ pulled that stunt asking for autopsy reports/photos. I think JJ already got his money thru Katherine when the kids allowance was increased earlier this month.
