Legal Fight Brewing in Jackson House

6/4/2010 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned four of Katherine Jackson's grandchildren will be moving from her house this month, and the mother of the kids has lawyered up for a fight.

Katherine Jackson
TMZ broke the story ... Katherine told Alejandra Jackson -- who had been living at the Jackson family compound in Encino with her kids, Jaafar, Jermajesty, Donte and Randy, Jr. -- that her brood had to move out, because Katherine had her hands full just watching over Michael Jackson's 3 kids.

Katherine is allowing Alejandra and her kids to move into a nearby condo owned by the Jackson family, but Alejandra is pissed. Katherine is in Indiana until June 10. We're told when Katherine comes back, Alejandra has to move.

But it's not going to be that easy. We've learned Alejandra has hired Trope & Trope, a powerful law firm, to negotiate a separation agreement of sorts. We're told Alejandra wants some assurance that her family will be financially protected if she moves. As a result, she may challenge the move or negotiate a separation package -- which would include a place where she and her kids will live (not necessarily the condo) and what financial support she gets.

Alejandra has gone after Jermaine in the past for failing to pay child support -- and now that she's being forced to move, the money battle has been reignited. Jermaine is the father of two of the kids and Randy is the father of the other two children.

Katherine asked Alejandra to move after the stun gun incident. TMZ broke the story that Jaafar ordered a stun gun online and was playing with it at the house -- something that triggered an investigation by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services.

The gulf oil spill is a manmade disaster. BP has the money and resources to pay for their own misguided greed for more oil. no telethon or celebrities should endorse or solicit financial support for a corporation who has committed such an offense against humanity and nature. BP stands alone and they will pay one way or another. Governor Charlie Crist of Florida has received millions in assistance from the oil giant. the governor has requested an additional $100 million.

A day after asking the company for $50 million, Florida Governor Charlie Crist sent a letter to BP America President Lamar McKay asking for an additional $100 million — money he said Friday is needed to monitor the threat to Florida's ecosystem.
The initial traces of oil from the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico washed onto Florida shores for the first time Friday.
Florida has already received $50 million from BP and Crist's newest request would bring the state's total request to $200 million. Crist also said BP would be asked for more.
Crist said the $100 million would pay for evaluating water conditions to help scientists find ways to combat the threats to Florida waters and beaches.

This is Heartbreak Hotel.....
Now, it's things like this that make me have my issues with the Jacksons. I've loved them for years and still do love SOME of them (MICHAEL is my no.1, of course) but every time I think maybe they're okay and I can be comfortable with them again, another story turns up like this one.
There's always some craziness going on with them and it ALWAYS involves their use of Michael, somehow.
This is a situation that should've never happened but it did because Katherine was trying to cover for her deadbeat sons--you guessed it, JERMY and RANDY who both have 2 kids with this woman...well, sort of--Randy has one bio-kid and an adopted son, Donte. Fact is, Katherine did try to put Alejandro out once before, but the court advised her to let them stay because Randy and Jermy owed back support. Not sure how much pressure R and J put on Katherine to make sure they didn't have to come out of their pocket. They are both listed as residents of Hayvenhurst but Jermy doesn't live there....
Meanwhile back at the ranch, although the brothers owe Alejandro child support, she's lawyering up against Katherine for kicking her out--as if she has squatter's rights or something? Here's the thing, I had the same response everyone else had against this woman and I still think she belongs in some sort of mental ward, but on the other hand, maybe she's not acting alone. Think about it. Jermy and Randy had a good thing going there with their kids being raised by their Mother and being provided for by the "Bank of Michael Jackson".
Ask yourself this: Why would the brothers want to:
a. Lose the opportunity for their kids to cash in on every perk and outing MJ3 has
b. Lose the opportunity to have their kids living with MJ3--the golden goose, and therefore able to influence them
c. Lose their free pass with supporting their kids
d. Lose the opportunity for their kids to be raised by a REAL mother
-If you watched the Jackson Reality Show, you'll see that Jermy was living in a beautiful home with his current wife/slave Halima (who BTW just HAPPENS to be Tohme's niece) and driving a Rolls. He also wore tailored outfits throughout the run and travelled constantly. Doesn't sound like he was broke to me.
As for Randy, he wasn't on the show and all reports have him jobless and living at Hayvenhurst, HOWEVER, he had $60...K to randomly donate to sick girl he saw on TV...guess he never heard of the concept that CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME!
Bottom line, it really irks me that family, friends, associates, employees...EVERYONE wants to constantly sponge off of Michael. If the family wants sympathy for how the press treats them, they should quit doing everything they can to earn that treatment. It's as if without Michael, they don't know how to live their lives....The family that PREYS TOGETHER...
No Peace till Justice!

Bravo, Cher. My sentiments exactly.

About time they stopped leeching off Michael. The brothers need to grow some nuts and get a freaking job.

Cher - Halima is Tohme's NIECE? Ooooo!!!!!

I don't think she's a slave though. She's very good to Jermaine, although I don't know what he has done to deserve it. I wish Michael had a wife like that.

Get this bunch of free loading parasites OUT of Michael's house NOW... The house was owned by Michael so it now belongs to Michael's estate and is therefore the home for his three children and Katherine. As it is, this greedy family are only moving about 5 minutes away to a property STILL paid for by Michael. Why can't Jermaine and Randy look after and pay for their own kids.? They must start taking responsibility for themselves and stop leeching off their dead brother. They should be ashamed of themselves but I'm sure they're not even remotely ashamed or embarrassed about taking permanent, never ending handouts.

This is Heartbreak Hotel - Pt. 2...
Hey MJ Investigators(Chico, Della, Daphne, Andie, et al.):
I just thought of something--doesn't it seem as if these little pesky Jackson family issues come up in the media just when something key is happening or about to happen? Remember the Klein/Pfeiffer thing came up when Peter Lopez died?
Wonder what "The Circle" is cooking up now that they want us distracted from? Remember who owns most of the media AND Time Warner.....
-Correction on my last post: Randy also has a bio-daughter with Alejandra, Genevieve--an aspiring recording artist.
-#147: Alejandra may have some dirt on the Jacksons, but from reports I've read about her background, she probably wouldn't want to start a spitting contest with them if you know what I mean. It seems Ms. Jackson, who IS Nasty, has a checkered past, at best. Furthermore, if Katherine was so worried about Alejandra silling secrets, why did she give her the boot?
-#149: Mel, Debbie told the CA fans at Forest Lawn that she hadn't seen Prince and Paris yet back in April when in a play for their sympathy, she made it sound like Katherine--the same woman who this story says put up with a babymama from hell and her offspring for years--had refused to let her see Prince and Paris. More likely, Prince and Paris had no desire to see her yet which is sad. She is their mother but she has to face the fact that all they have to do is search her on the Internet to see how she basically used them as collateral for 3 settlements since their birth...
-#190: Noel, there's a bigger problem here. Katherine, Joe, Jermy and Michael signed a contract for a Reunion Tour which never happened because as usual Michael did NOT want to tour with his family again. Thing is, Michael settled out of court with the plaintiffs, but Jermy, Joe and Katherine never showed up in court thinking that, as usual, Michael would cover them--he didn't because he had his own money issues after the 2005 Trial so now there's a lien against Katherine, Joe and Jermy. The allowance Katherine gets from the Estate all goes toward that debt which is why she asked for more money to support MJ3--any money going to them can't be touched by the lienholder...
-#230: Grump, this is an excellent question. I'm sure the estate would probably help, but there is no love lost between them and the Jacksons--especially since Joe still maintains that the will is a fake. Haven't heard him mumbling against it recently so he may have gotten his "hush money" as he was slated to meet with the Executors to discuss an allowance for him. Bottom line, I'm sure the Executors do have the power to eject Alejandra and Co. out of Neverland. Question is, do they care?
To be continued.....

Alejandro there is a 4 letter word in the English dictionary, and I am assuming that you understand English. This word is called WORK. Perhaps you should try to get up off your lazy A@s and familiarize yourself with it . Stop trying to live of Michael's hard earned dollars. You people have used this man long enough his money is now for his children and his mother. Go look for work you lazy bums. I wont even address the responsibility of the 2 brothers who fathered your children. Have you no moral values at all? How dare you all try to live off MJ without thinking about his needs. Where were you leeches when Michael needed someone? Where were all of Michael's friends in his time of need? Go Get A Job. Imagine you cant look for work but you can use MJ's money to hire a lawyer. Get your A@s out of the man's house.

To Andie

If it were Michael i'd polish his loafers. Heck i'd wash Michael's feet and use one or two packs of Bohyme (V-Tip) Egyptian Wave to dry his sexy toes, heels, and ankles. Child please, I'd do so much for MJ that Halima would appear to be half stepping with Jermaine! OMGoodnes!

BTW: Jermaine was also sitting on her lap???)
Come to think of it, if i were his ex wife living at his parent's home, i'd be pretty ticked off at him looking all cozy on the family's new TV show. perhaps i'd hire a lawyer too!)

why dont the brothers get back on the road and do concerts? if they dedicate the concert to michael, and have one or two songs just for him, people will come and they will listen. because lets face it there will never be another Michael Jackson or anything or anyone even close to him, now or later, he was the star of stars, he was ,is, and always will be the entertainer of all entertainers. thats just all there is to it. he just happens to have a loving, caring heart as well, never mind how hansome he is, at any age! he is so truly, truly loved and missed.
