Michael Jackson's Dad to be Deposed

5/7/2010 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's dad will be deposed by Jackson's estate lawyers some time next month in his bid to receive an allowance from the estate.

Michael Jackson's Dad Joe Jackson to be Deposed

As we first reported, Joe Jackson filed a claim against the estate last year in an effort to get a monthly check from the estate.

According to documents filed earlier this week, Joe will sit down with Michael's attorney at a date to be determined "between June 1, 2010 and July 1, 2010."

Both sides will then go back to court some time after August 1.

Uhm.. Joe didn't do anything more for Michael than he did the rest of the J5.... so why aren't they where Mike was? ahh yea I forgot, cause Mike didn't lay up making a buncha brats he couldn't pay for and blowing money for 30 yrs, he actually solo'd to get his own money. mmk?

Aside from the multitude of other reasons this sorry devil doesn't deserve 1 dime from the MJFT (as Michael Jackson himself created it)...
any man who has had 10s (maybe 100s) of millions run through his fingers over the years and then whines and complains that all he has now to make it on is his SS check (his only source of income)... has none of my sympathy.
Even the roof over his head in LV and Hayvenhurst in LA weren't paid for by this sorrier than dogsh/t lying Joseph Jackson.
But the estate will give Joe Jackson the allowance that he's requested simply to prevent dysfunctional Katherine from continuously asking for an increase in her allowance (and MJ3) & enabling her to keep siphoning off to Joe. There's little doubt that a good portion of the MJFT is still supporting Jermaine and Randy's concubine and their offspring.
The clock is ticking Joe Jackson.
Maybe someday soon you'll finally just STFU & RIP.
just one less nasty looking catfish.

I think Michael knew very well what he did when he left Joe out of his will. On the other hand I don't believe he wanted him to end up flat broke. So Michael gave the money to Katherine – being aware that she'd support Joe. However, he would have always come begging to her, he'd depend on her mercy. Maybe something like Michael's object lesson in his mom's name for the numerous cheating she had suffered from her husband?

Hi moni



I have to agree with you. Maybe this was Michaels way of getting back at his Dad and giving some power to his Mother. Let Papa Joe Go crawling to Mother for an allowance and see if she will give him some. Doesn't seem to be working so well,seeing that hes still trying to get money from the estate. Karmas a Bit*h!!

Is Joe even Michael's dad? They look nothing alike.

LOL. Disagree totally with this. I know people don't WANT Michael to look like Joe, and that probably Michael had all that surgery in order to wipe Joe off his face. Also of course, there are many folks who post here who cannot remember Michael BEFORE he had plastic surgery. But the truth is this: if you look at young pictures of Joe Jackson (esp. in his 20s and 30s), you can see Michael all over his face. It is undeniable. I agree that Joe looks like a bulldog now, but in his younger years, he wasn't bad looking. People just aren't willing to see this because their knowledge of Joe's personality overshadows their ability to see him as handsome at one time. If your personality is ugly, it's hard to see the beauty in your face. But Michael did look like him -- the real Michael - before surgery manipulation. And yes, I realize many people don't remember Michael when he had the look to his face that God (and Joe & Katherine) gave him. But once upon a time, there was no mistaking that Joe was his father. Again, look at pics of Joe before the stress of poverty and nine children to feed took their toll.

IT’S BEEN OVER 50 YEARS. Michael forgave his father. Why are people so bitter holding on to what Michael let go of?



Hey mymjj5 -



This is true. Just hope Joe continues to seek Justice for Michael.

Hi Lee lee,
are you early-morning-posting again, lol? Shortly after midnight here!
Yep, let Joe come crawling. I think Michael chose a very clever and sophisticated way to support his dad, so let it be that way. What sense does it make to write down a will if it won't be respected later, or if it will be given a different interpretation?

Uhm.. Joe didn't do anything more for Michael than he did the rest of the J5.... so why aren't they where Mike was?



*******************************************************



Because they didn't have the same level of talent or drive/ambition that Michael had. And guess where Michael got the level of drive/ambition he had? Yep, like it or not, he got it from Joe Jackson. Michael was more like his father than he was ever willing to admit. He got many of Joe's qualities -- endless, never-say-die drive, ambition, belief in oneself and one's abilities, ruthlessness when needed, show business instinct, stubborness, etc. He also got Joe's business savvy times 1000. Michael had advantages that Joe didn't (THANKS to JOE) -- education and extensive travel (which is a form of education). Joe could have given up and resigned his family to a life in the steel mills. But he never gave up no matter how many times he got knocked down. And neither did Michael. The apple doesn't fall far...

Do you fools even hear yourselves??



If MJ was .000001 of the supposed "LOVE THE WORLD" ridiculous BS that you all are constantly whining and complaining about - he would make Joe happy in an instant.



Fact of the matter is that MJ and his brothers would have all been dead in Gary by now had it not been for Joe. To this very DAY - none of them has an ounce of discipline - and it was only when the stars and moon and karma and the equator all lined up that Mika would get his act together and make a dime or pay his bills.



***OR***



Joe could have / would have stepped in and kicked some butt.



GOOD LUCK JOE but leave them flaky broads alone!!! ;-)

Cathy,
I agree with you, Joe didn't look that ugly when he was young.
But any similarities with Michael? Can't see that! The eye area alone and the eyebrowes as well are completely different, aren't they? Far more I recognize beautiful Katherine in young Michael's face, and in Janet's as well.

Good Point but I'm sure that under all these cir***stances I'm sure Katherine does not need the headache of Joe going to bug her for money,maybe MJ never thought of all the trouble Katherine would be going through with all those kids, grandkids, and even deadbeat ex-daughter in law she has to support. With all respect to the family since all they need right now is Support from the fans because of all this mudslinging coming from idiots who want to make a quick buck off of Michael's name maybe the best thing is for the estate to sort out any inside fights for money.

I don't blame Mike for wiping Joe's looks from his face. Who wants to see the person who you are so scared of and hated so much, staring right back at you in the mirror. For Mike it was the right thing to do to alter his appearance. Look at all of Mike's brothers and sisters today, though they have some of Katherine's features, it's Joe's features on them which stand out more. They don't mind looking like their father though because they weren't affected as badly as Mike was.
