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.

RANDY: IF YOUR PARENTS ARE BEING EXPLOITED, THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! EVERYONE SUPPOSEDLY DID AN INTERVENTION WITH MICHAEL THAT DID NOT PAN OUT, DON'T LET SOMETHING NEGATIVE COME OF YOUR MOMS DEALINGS WITH MONEY HUNGRY PREDATORS! HOWEVER IT IS SAID THAT YOUR MOM AND HER NEW BUSINESS PARTNER ARE GOING TO RELEASE NEW, NEVER BEFORE HEARD MJ DVDS. WELL I DESPERATELY WANT TO BUY EVERYONE OF THEM. BUT INTERVENE AS A FAMILY UNIT, IF YOU THINK YOUR MOM IS BEING EXPLOITED.

The Jacksons are pathetic. Always have been, always will be. They are ALL out to make a buck. One says one thing, then another says something different. With the Jacksons, you never know what the truth is.

I agree with Randy. I don't believe he's being greedy as Randy SO FAR has done nothing to gain money from MJ.



Am I wrong? Please name the activity.



Mrs. Jackson is doing business with Schaeffel?
She also is involved with a book on MJ with a man that owns a porn site?



I think Randy is right and the siblings have been behaving themselves but the parents......I don't know.

Yes, that clusterf*** was all Randy Jackson & Karen Faye's doing. Once MJ found out about it, he ordered them to shut it down & return the money. Randy & Karen shut down the site, but they never returned the money.



But Michael forgave Randy. Michael PAID for all his nieces' & nephews' education & room & board - while Randy & Jermaine skip out on their responsibilities.



Do you know who pays for it now? Michael's kids. The same kids that Randy Jackson did a secret DNA test on to try to fight the MJ will to try to prove that they weren't MJ's bio-kids. And the tests all came back that MJ was 99.9% the father of Mike, Jr., Paris & Blanket. That's when Randy backed down on trying to prove the will was fake & then tried to influence his mom. But of course, old Joe is the master of the pimp game, and now Joe is running that game on Katherine, the same they ran on Michael.



Randy needs to man up & pay the MJ estate all that child support MJ paid for decades and STFU, because he's no better than his dad Joe.

Randy exploited his mother when he left his wife and children behind for her to support and Jermaine exploited that situation and ended up with Randy's ex.

@Saddened: The MJJSource fee was $50, wasn't it? I was a member of a fan message board at the time, and lots of young fans complained that they couldn't afford to put up that much money upfront. There weren't any payment plans, either.



You know what is truly sad? It didn't have to be like this. Jermaine and Randy could have had great careers. They had talent! Jermaine had a good voice and Randy supposedly played the piano better than Michael did. If they spent as much time in the studio as they did on divorce/baby mama drama, they'd still be charting today.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$



STAMP!!!



randy j "As far as I am concerned, tonight’s event is a fraud."
"How can you raise money for a foundation that has not been legally formed? It is disrespectful to this family & an insult the public & fans" SCAM ALERT!!!




LMAO @ the thought of this "function" being a legit event. TMZ said it best "his parents are being manipulated by people who are just out to make a buck -- problem is, his parents are sharing in the profits."



STOP blaming others for supposedly taking advantage of your parents, Randy, because they are just effin greedy...always have...always will be.

Zorayda - yep. It was a lot of money, and those fans from overseas where the dollar had much more value at that time gave that amount of money to never be paid back thanks to Randy & Karen Faye/Fake.



What they shuld've done is act like men & be responsible for their own kids & lives, and not blame MJ for their drama while expecting him to always pay for their BS.



Most of the Jackson Family has made MJ feel guilty for being that talented & loved. They guilted him into paying up for their drama & b BS.



Randy has no credible leg to stand on. The longtime fans know the deal.
