Michael Jackson Estate to Joe: No, No, No

2/4/2010 7:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate have filed legal papers opposing Joe Jackson's attempt to get his son's UCLA medical records -- records Joe wants in order to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Michael Jackson and Joe Jackson

Estate lawyers say there are three reasons why Joe is not entitled to medical records.

1. Joe was not a dependent of Michael Jackson and therefore not legally entitled to sue for the wrongful death of his son.

2. Joe has filed his request for medical records in connection with his attempt to get an allowance from the estate, and an allowance has nothing to do with wrongful death.

3. There is a physician-patient privilege that bars Joe from getting the medical records.

JOE IS INTITLED TO HIS SON’S MONEY. THE MAN IS 80YRS OLD. HE HAS ONLY A FEW YEARS LEFT TO LIVE. GIVE HIM THE FREAKING MONEY! IF IT WASN’T FOR JOE’S HARD WORK, MICHAEL JACKSON AND ALL HIS BROTHERS WOULD BE IN JAIL LIKE MOST OF THE BLACK MEN THEY GREW UP WITH.

Joe is easily the sleaziest human being on the planet. The minute his son was buried he started dreaming up ways to make money off his dead son's estate. What a LOSER. Go to hell, Joe. You should have been a better father. Then maybe Michael would have recognized you in his will,you stupid creep.

* I kinda beg to differ here. The ole Devil was not legally dependent on Michael Jackson but that doesn't disregard the fact that he was financially dependent on Michael via Katherine.

And not quite sure that a parent doesn't have a legal right to an independent childs medical records. And don't believe that the Estate has any legal standing in preventing Catfish Devil Joe's from securing those records from UCLA.

JIO...just my opinion...I'm not familiar with CA laws.

I don't fully understand the reasoning behind any of this Joe "stuff" yet...since Katherine AND Joe received medical and autopsy/toxicology records long ago...BOTH parents were made privy to those and they requested that they be sealed indefinitely. At that time Joe and Katherine were still in agreement re everything concerning the estate and their opposition to it/Branca and the will.
