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."

It would be nice if people were half as passionate about the goings-on of their own lives as they are about the lives of others...hmmmm. Oh well,tomorrow's another day.

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

You Catfish-faced lying ole Devil....you win anyway! The Estate conveniently upped MJs childrens allowance last week!

According to MJs Will Joe had no legitimate basis for his allowance request to be granted by the Court. But an increase in the childrens monthly allowance could.

There are ways around just about everything. When it's MJ pulling on those puppet strings. roflmofao

He needs to go ask some of those skanks he was screwing, during those years he was married to Katherine, for an allowance!
He collected enough money from Michael through the years; He should have saved some of it, instead of perpetrating living the high life! I guess he wasn't counting on Michael dying before him!

@Angela, in as much as Joe is not the world's favourite man currently, he still deserves something from his son. I dont think MJ would ever watch his father go hungry if he were alive. Law of Nature: if you raise your children into adulthood, they are also obliged cater for you until you die.

Being a father is a thankless job in America. He raised those kids the best he knew how and apparently did a pretty good job. How many families produce 5 (or is it 6) successful kids?

Give the old guy some credit and cash.

The second post says something in the lines of that there are 3 consecutive floors in the tower that can only be reached by a service elevator.

Hey #32.

I thought that the Taliban probably hated MJ.

Good for you. I am glad that you liked his movie.

exactly my point. well said. from the time the will was made until he died, MJ had plenty of time to forgive his dad. am sure he would have provided for him had the will been updated.

31. 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?

Actually it was Katherine who discovered Michael´s talent. Joe wouldn´t hear of it in the beginning (Michael 5 or thereabout). And she saw Michael dance to the rythm of the WASHING MACHINE (!!! is that cute, or what?) when he was a baby.
She was every bit as responsible for the Jackson5´s success as Joe. She rehearsed with them too, sang with them, danced with them - and I bet it was in a more playful and pleasant way than the Joe-drills.
She was (is?) supposedly a brilliant singer, she was just too shy to perform on stage because of her limp.


Michael didn´t want Joe to have anything according to the will, so the decicion is right in my opinion.

i'm not disputing Katherine's role in MJ's life and the money he left for her. i'm simply saying Joe also deserves to enjoy MJ's money.
