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.

After a year, Michael Jackson rabid fanatic fans are STILL doing their mundane redundant investigation of a death that didn't even occur! Dissecting the Will of a man who isn't even dead! Day after friggin day.
It didn't occur the way they told us and I knew that from the beginning. Tellit Explain.

421. What a piece of have 4 children by 2 brothers, live in your mother in laws house for years not contributing to anything, then when her son dies and she has to raise his 3 because she is asked to do so, instead of you leaving, you stay and then get mad and want to sue because you cannot or will not discipline your brood. She is not putting you out on the street, she is asking that you go live in another house, free of charge. What exactly is your problem. I just hope Katherine has her things in order when she passes and makes sure that either Janet or Rebe has her back and her best interest at heart. All the leeches need to leave and start living their own lives instead of living off of MJ and now his kids money. GET OUT!! you have 2 daddies there, get your money from them and get a job so you can have your own.

Actually it's five kids. Randy has a daughter Genevieve, son Randy Jr with that boy is adopted..not sure which is the father of Donte? Jaafar & Jermajesty are Jermaine's. Ms Kate should've kicked that woman out years ago. Jermaine & Randy got's to pay so child support.

a live Michael foot the bill for this brother's kids and in death they still want him to pay... Katherine's money comes from Michael... Michael owned the house Katherine lives in and the condo Alejandra gets to move to ...

Wow someone should put this greedy ungrateful B*tch up in government housing/projects for a week. Maybe then she will realize how good she has it. Better yet deport her a$$ back to South America.

Katherine is doing what any grandmother would do. Alejandra fathered children with both brothers. Yuk! What was this, a contest? It's Jermaine and Randy who needs to take care of this situation with no hesitation. Jermaine made so much money when Michael died (Larry King interviews) and word is he bought a 3 million dollar house afterwards, so whats his excuse? Why doesn't she take both Jermaine and Randy to court for child support. Geez! dead beat dads thats what they are.

In california she is considered a "tenant". If she makes a stink about leaving, Katherine would have to legally evict her. It doesn't matter one bit if she has never contributed even one dime...which I think is crap. She has no claim against Katherine. She has to go after her ex's. I didn't know she had kids by 2 of the that I say, "EWWWWWW!"

416. mymjj5. 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!
LOL!! At least Michael would be grateful! And not take it for granted. I'd forgotten about Jermaine sitting on Halimi's knee, but I do remember him describing her as "my carer" Geez!
I also bought the 2 disc DVD btw.

Michael needed to be married to a woman who would bring all of this insanity to a screeching halt. Michael loved his family and he was kind hearted, but it's obvious that he was taken advantage of. I'm sure his wife would have made some enemies, but she should have had Michael's back, and put a stop to this lunacy of Michael being expected to pay everyone elses' bills. Michael didn't need a secret girlfriend, he needed a WIFE.

This whole issue of Michael having to support his brother's children because they WON'T, is ridiculous. His wife would have seperated him from this insane mess, especially, since he was having his own financial problems.

Even in death, Michael is expected to continue to carry the load, while one of the brothers rides around in his Rolls Royce. This whole situation is blatant abuse of Michael's kindness. No wonder, he loved them, but kept his distance. His mother was the link they used to get Michael's money, and to drag him into their drama.

Michael's life would have been different if he had met the right woman to marry him. She would have put a stop to the madness. Regardless of who was offended, she would have protected her husband. That's the type of woman Michael needed to marry.

This is Heartbreak Hotel - Pt.3......
-#362: Hey Mymjj! Great question as to whether or not there are assets that are shared between Michael and the brothers. I don't know of any other than songs they may have written under "The Jacksons". However, I think the publishing rights to these songs fall under the Mijac Catalog. I will do some research on this one and let you know.
As for the family's loyalty, hate to say it but more and more I think their only loyalty is to his money and what it can do for them. I know there's a lot of Jackson bashing going on these days and I'm not trying to wallow in that, but their track record speaks for itself. And it's not just tabloid reports, but it's FACTS like this story for example. IMO Alejandra is only doing what everyone else in this family does, taking a trip to the Bank of MJ!!
You mentioned how lovingly the family supported Michael during the trial--I've thought about that recently, too, because I now realize that while he was suffering--on trial for his life, Randy was teamed up with shady characters who forged contracts for loans behind his back when he refused to (this happened more than once btw until finally Michael had to sit down with Randy, his partner, and Katherine which ended in him firing Randy as his Business Mgr.,) and the rest of the 'loving' family ganging up to convince him to do, what else? A JACKSON FAMILY TOUR. And they wonder why Michael wouldn't let them help him at those 1-2 Interventions they claim they did...when he saw them coming he probably only saw their hands out--FOR MONEY!!
Don't get me wrong, every family has skeletons in their closets--I live in that glass house, too. The difference is they try to portray themselves as something they aren't. Sorry to say that at this point, the only Jackson I have any regard for is Katherine and of course, MJ3. Even Janet and Rebbie played themselves by going on national TV--Janet to Oprah (and we know her issues with Michael--don't trust her at all!!) and stating that Michael was "in denial". Now before we go into the whole "worship MJ" deal, let me say I realize he had drug issues AT TIMES, but there's no proof that he did it continuously since '93 which is the way the media protrayed it. Even if he did, I can't for the life of me understand why they would go on TV and say what they did about their OWN BROTHER, who has only been dead for LESS THAN A YEAR! I would NEVER do that to even my remote relatives that I've never met. Is that what they call loyalty? IMO their loyalty is checked at the door when it comes to hyping their careers--Janet has a CD out and the Tyler Perry film WAS out at the time, and Rebbie is going to Tour this much for LOYALTY.....
BTW: I loved what you said about Michael marrying one of his TRUE fans, but it would have to be one who knew how to flow with him and not be intimidated by his lifestyle or worship him. From what I've seen of Michael, I don't think he would like a woman who rolls over and plays dead, contrary to popular belief, I think she would have to be a renaissance girl, well read like he is and be able to stimulate his mind as well as his senses...hmmm now you have me dreamin'.....WAKE UP!!
-#375: Hey Siggisis! You're right, of course. But in the "anti-Randy's" defense, his crime is that he's allowed his sons and ex to live off his Mom for that many years--to the point where his kids are now all adults with the exception of Genevieve who, at 17 is almost there. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of Randy's mainly because I think he played his part in Michael's demise.....
-#388: Mymjj, now you got me wanting to pull out the old Jackson CDS!! That's if I can bring myself to take Invincible out of my player--I'm still stuck on "Whatever happens" and that beautiful collaboration of Sexy vocals of Michael with Steamy guitar courtesy of Carlos Santana..."Thank you, man. Thank YOU Carlos"....
No Peace till Justice!

This is Heartbreak Hotel - Pt. 4...
-#405: Too Funny--a huge correction on my last post--meant to say I'm sure the Executors have the power to eject Alejandra and Co. out of HAYVENHURST not NEVERLAND! Oy vey! If she squatted her tail in Neverland, Katherine wouldn't have to and many other fans/supporters would be happy to KICK HER OUT, PERSONALLY!!
-#408: Mysteria333, that sounds like a proactive solution to get the brothers working again HOWEVER, if they do, they'd better stick to small venues. Sorry, but I doubt that without Michael, they'd get many people to buy tickets. And their reality show didn't help, because it showed the current state their in--confused and LOST WITHOUT MICHAEL!!
If the brothers ever want to get out of Michael's shadow--something I doubt they ever can do--they need to total retool their music focus/style and go from there. Sure, they'll make money on the "old school" circuit, but based on their Reality Show, I doubt they'll ever be as big as they once were for the following reasons:
1. Jermaine is not in touch with reality and still sees himself as Michael's equal performance-wise even though the talent he once had is fading fast
2. Jackie, one of the dancers and singers of the group is showing his age and is overly sensitive at times. He also has a hard time coming to grips with The Jacksons as a group without Michael
3. Tito, the most grounded of the brothers has ventured off into another genre with a Blues band--a move in the right direction, but needs work. He seems to recognize the lost of Michael as much as Jackie, but is not in tune with the obstacles that face a Jackson comeback.
4. Marlon, the comic relief of the group, has problems being committed to it and his attitude makes it appear that his heart isn't in renewing the group. He also appears to be a bit out of touch with the difference between him and his brothers, and Michael.
5. Randy, was never on the show and told TMZ he didnt need to do reality shows because he and the family had money. In any event, he seems content to lurk behind the scenes and orchestrate things from there...more likely, courtesy of Michael's money......
-#409: Good idea Mymjj. However, there are examples of Michael's signatures elsewhere. I have a few mags and pictures with his sig and it's all over the web, see:
And here's a link to a Youtube clip on the discrepancies of the signature on the will. Seems we need to compare the will signature to BRANCA'S signature as they maintain he forged it and Michael was in NY fighting Mottola on that date on the will, NOT LA.
-#413: Hey Patti! One thing--do you think the Jackson reality show was that bad? Of course, I cringed every time Jermy came on screen (wonder if they got that name the Jacksons, "Pea**** Productions" from watching him?) or whenever they were shown accepting an award FOR MICHAEL that they twisted into being ABOUT THEM--HATED THAT!!
On the other hand, it was very refreshing to see the next generation of Jacksons--not Jermajesty and his ilk, but Jackie's daughter and son, 3T, and one of Jermy's older sons--and learn more about them. Have to admit it was like watching a train wreck, but it was real funny watching the brothers trip all over each other while trying to resurrect their faded career with a new recording and Tour...the high point being that final episode where Terry Lewis ogets them to face up to the fact that MIchael is no longer there to save the day for them...
The best part of the show for me was the one thing you couldn't see but was overshadowed every episode--MICHAEL!!!
Since they spent that entire season dealing with how they moved on from Michael's death, I wonder what they'll do for a follow-up. Last I heard A&E had a deal on the table for a 2nd season, but I haven't heard anything since. I think the only way this next season would be interesting is if they get Joe as the comic relief and Randy as the shady enforcer......
But one thing they BETTER NOT do is try to get MJ3 on that thing...if they do, you may see Michael coming back to life and jack somebody up...with love, L.O.V.E.......
