Randy Jackson: They're Exploiting My Family

6/26/2010 10:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0626_randy_jackson_bn_gettyRandy Jackson says his parents are being manipulated by people who are just out to make a buck -- problem is, his parents are sharing in the profits.

Randy has been tweeting today, bitterly complaining about the Jackson Family Foundation event Saturday night at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Bev Hills.

Randy says, "Let me be clear, there's no legitimate 'Jackson Family Foundation' that my brothers & sisters are aware of."  And, Randy says, "I know my parents would not be involved if they really knew the characters they have aligned themselves with."

The Foundation, which lists on its website Joe Jackson as the Chairman and Katherine Jackson as Vice Chairman, is selling tickets for the event for as a much as $500 a pop.  A spokesperson for one of the organizers -- voiceplate.com -- told TMZ some of the money will go to charity. He would not say how much.

And remember just days after Michael Jackson died, when Joe held a news conference announcing his new record label and touting a rapper who was signing with him? That rapper is singing at tonight's event.

Michael's body wasn't even cold when Joe was on the horn soliciting other young singers to "manage".
He is so evil there aren't enough words.

Sounds like Randys not getting his fair share of the pie. He just needs to follow in daddy's footsteps. There's plenty of pie to go around, thanks to MJ's fans.

I don't know about Katherine, but Joe's not being exploited - he's cosigning this foolishness. He'll be a pimp till the day he dies.

"Michael Jackson had a private memorial service today at Forest Lawn Glendale.



His parents didn’t show, neither did his kids. Sister LaToya was absent, according to guests, as well as brothers Marlon and Jackie. Sister Rebbie was also not seen. La Toya was in town. She even made money from a bunch of pr appearances this week connected to the anniversary.



Jermaine, Randy, Tito and Janet were there, however. So was former manager and publicist Raymone Bain. There were 60 guests in all, and no celebrities, not even Macaulay Culkin.



Jackie Jackson was recently put on the estate’s payroll. So his absence is strange.



More to come…"

This is coming from the brother who formed MJJSource.com back in 2004-2005, took hundreds of thousands of dollars from fans who were duped - then never opened the website, but most of all, never returned the money back, thanks to Randy Jackson & Karen Faye, his BFF.



Randy's just sorry he didn't think of it first. How about pay your damn child support so that MJ can finally be relieved of paying for your kids' upbringing home, maintenance & education?



Who's exploiting who, Randy?



And PLEASE stop exploiting the niece & nephews you secretly did DNA tests on to negate the will. The real fans know what you did. So sad for you to find out that the MJ3 are biological relatives to you to try to kick them off the trusteeship.



I'm very disappointed in you, Randy. VERY.
