Katherine Jackson to Joe: Don't Drag Me Into This!

6/25/2010 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson has no business dragging his wife into the wrongful death lawsuit he's filing against Dr. Conrad Murray ... this according to her lawyer.

Katherine Jackson & Joe Jackson

TMZ broke the story ... Brian Oxman is filing the wrongful death suit in federal court today.  Oxman has named Katherine and Michael Jackson's three kids as "nominal plaintiff."

It's bizarre to name anyone as a "nominal plaintiff" in such a case.   As far as we can tell  -- plaintiffs in wrongful death cases never bring in others as "nominal plaintiffs."

That said, Katherine's lawyer, Adam Streisand, tells TMZ, "Mrs. Jackson has no interest in Conrad Murray other than seeing that justice is done in the criminal courts." 

Streisand adds, "She certainly would never tap Brian Oxman for the job of filing any kind of lawsuit for her or the kids."

Good for Katherine. She loved Micheal with a pure heart, Joe did not.

Joe is just using her, because he has no creditability. She doesn't need the aggravation or money.

I feel the same. CIVIL COURTS can rule PUNITIVE DAMAGE aka MONEY. Joe is NOT after justice, Joe is after $. I also am only intested in justice from Criminal Courts. DO NOT support anything Joe is trying to do via Oxman. Oxman is the most imcometent attorney in the planet and Joe is NOT paying Oxman, Joe authorised Oxman to do PAID interviews and make his legal fees that way, hence, the selling of petitions to tabloids and Oxman "addiction" interviews.

I really wish TMZ and other media outlets would stop following these money grabbing whores (entire Jackson family). All any of them care about is money. They cold care less about MJ or the kids it is just about getting as much money as they can. Hell Joe talked about his new record label more than he did MJ's death. A bunch of s***bags that should all crawl back under their hole.

A friend sent this to me and I wanted to share.

To Michael Jackson: It's hard to say it for some crazy reason, because you too were supposed to live forever. On this day last year we were hit with a blow so hard, so unexpected it felt and feels surreal. I can't seem to understand why you’re gone. I do know that you were loved. One of the most beautiful gifts God has given us is song and music. We heard that gift through you. You were too special for words. You were the greatest singer, entertainer ever, yet you were the humblest, most loving, and most soft spoken shining star. Never will there be a star like you. You gave as so many treasures and classics your music will live on. You loved this earth, you loved your kids, you loved kids, you loved people, and you loved your people. You spoke, taught, breathed, bled, cried, laughed, sang, danced and shed love. Your melody is wondrous, your song is glorious, your dance fierce. You are loved Today and everyday. All of us are watching your children grow too, they are not alone. With a broken heart I know you are gone I am proud to call today your first birthday in heaven.

I hope Katherine lives until the kids are over 18.
Hopefully she will outlive Joe.
