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 is more of a drama queen than Jermaine and Latoya. He complains 24/7.

NEWSFLASH RANDY:
You and many of your siblings and relatives are the same kind of skumbags you're complaining and twittering about. FINALLY, now you have an idea of just what most of us think about YOU. Friggin' no-talent loser leeches. Jermaine is the biggest FAKE of them all, pretending to be sad Michael died and going on interviews, milking his fake grief for all it's worth. You all are NO better than these people your parents are "aligning themselves with". Living off Michael for so long, arrogant, pompous, ridiculous sense of self-entitlement, sharing women with your brothers, having cousins also be brothers...the list goes on. You people are a disgusting JOKE! There was a REASON Michael didn't leave any of you a damn thing! CRAWL BACK UNDER THE ROCK YOU CAME FROM! PIG!!! No one with any sense is falling for any of this crap.

OMG I am so sick of this damned family. They were all living off of Michael Jackson. They have done nothing but milk him after his death for every penny they can get. Every cent MJ makes should go into trust accounts for his kids. Nothing to his mom, his dad or any of his siblings. They are fully capable of making their own money. You never see them talking about their brother.. just about he was the king of pop and the best entertainer.. which is BS btw.. MJ was not better than Elvis and not even CLOSE in talent to the Beatles. Now all the conspiracies about how people were trying to kill him. They all admitted they tried to do interventions and get him help for years for his drug addictions. Now suddenly its murder. Its crap. They aways put up this false front.. now its time to pay for it. He is gone. Let him BE GONE.

If they were smart & before this goes any farther,I think they need to speak to Priscilla Presley about how she handled & built a financial empire with all the Elvis's stuff.Elvis slot machines in casinos etc..;)
After all they have those 3 kids futures(to fail or flourish)to think about.
