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 -- -- 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.

Jenny, the vitiligo is very obvious just under Prince's right arm.
Just proves what Michael told us.
No doubt MJ3 paid for Jaafar's and Jermajesty's trip to Hawaii?

The Jackson family foundation is exploiting Michael’s legitimate charity efforts, and pocking most of monies from unsuspecting contributors with little or no money going for the charities that Michael started. – The Jackson family foundation is nothing but a charity scam.

Randy is too honest, and would be threat for the family if they cut him a piece of the pie.

I AGREE with Randy! Joe and Katherine are 80 years old and they've lost a son. Every single s*** with promises of huge money are trying to hook up with them. They need a strong lawyer that does background checks on those approaching them. It's so obvious what is going on here.

OPP means other people's property, but most insinuated it meant the slang word for a woman's genatalia that begins with P.

#29: "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."
#29, Randy is currently working on a nasty, greedy scheme to get access to the 20% of Michael's estate left to charity. See below.
LATEST PLOY BY JACKSON FAMILY TO GET TO MICHAEL'S MONEY REVEALED: Randy Jackson was interviewed on CNN 6/16/10 and stated that he's been speaking with his brothers (although he also mentions the entire family) about all of them "getting more involved with PHILANTHROPIC CHARITABLE WORK." They're creating a "foundation," "as yet unnamed," to "carry on Michael's mission." He claims that they've already been doing this all of their lives, but now they're going to be doing more of it. Of course, we all know the reason: 20% OF JACKSON'S ESTATE GOES TO CHARITIES, AND THIS IS HOW THE JACKSON SIBLINGS INTEND TO GET LARGE CHUNKS OF THEIR BROTHER'S MONEY. By creating a charitable foundation, undoubtedly "nonprofit," with the huge salaries and perks that the administrators of such charities routinely get, Randy, as ringleader, and the other Jacksons who go along with this, intend to swim in Michael's millions. They'll demand that the estate give them access to that 20% in Michael's will reserved for legitimate charities. I HOPE THE ESTATE ADMINISTRATORS DON'T GIVE ONE PENNY TO ANY JACKSON CHARITIES OR FOUNDATIONS. Anyone with half a brain knows that this is just a ploy to gain access to Michael's money -- money he meant to go to LEGITIMATE charities that actually spend most of their money helping people -- not charities run by family members looking for outrageous salaries and perks and that will undoubtedly become known for fraud and mismanagement.

Get Real - Joe has his hand in everything..If it's illegal, he'd sue them too.

Go get em' team - what a bunch of money whores and liars, hope nothing happens to little Janet..The only one left with talent..

How much money is enough for you and your village klan?? Go get a job Randy - what do you do anyway?

TMZ - can you just put the *******s to rest and quit reporting of this Jacked up crew..??????????? Waiting to see them exploit the test tube kids soon...none of which are MJ's anyway - doubt he's ever had sex with a female.

What's new about Joe exploiting Michael?

NO member of Michael's family, parents or siblings, should be doing ANYTHING without the full permission of the MJ estate. ONLY Brance, McClain and Weitzman should be allowed to conduct business matters. They have Michael's wishes, interests and his children as their one and only top priority. Shame on the Jackson parents and siblings. STOP using Michael as your sole source of income.
