Unofficial MJ Memorial -- Katherine in the House!

6/27/2010 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Forever Michael Memorial that went down last night didn't have the blessing of Michael Jackson's estate or his brother Randy, but it did have the support of his mother Katherine.

The matriarch of the Jackson clan was in attendance at the Beverly Hilton last night -- our spies say Katherine, Tito Jackson and one of Randy's daughters were the only Jackson family members that were there.

We're told the place looked about "half empty" and the only celebs our sources saw were Mickey Rooney, Corey Feldman and Eddie Griffin.

As for food and drinks -- the menu consisted of a choice of salmon or steak and domestic beer could be purchased for $8.50, wine for $10.

Not exactly fit for a King.

While it is the family's right to host a memorial for their family member, the information coming out about the people behind this is more than a bit disturbing. IMHO, if you host a memorial party, there shouldn't be a fee.

The race to the bottom continues.

If MJ is really dead, how come a real star studded tribute has never come into fruition? One that would be broadcast throughout the world with music's top stars? All these stars say that MJ was their inspiration yet no one can put a show together?

AEG owns all these arenas, yet they can't host a show?

Of course Feldman was there...but he couldn't go to Haim's funeral, too much press.

Mickey Rooney, Corey Feldman and Eddie Griffin. No wonder no one was there, these guys aren't even worth the ink in a sharpy for an autograph.

so over it    

You are so right Cali MJ Fan hats off to you. I totally agree and remember the Estate is not supporting this either. Someone is pocketing this big time. ALL BS. RIP Michael!

Oh Katherine :( What these slime balls who are running all of your lives wont stoop to. Seriously people, someone help her find reliable unselfish people to keep around her to make sure these type of things are not done. It is clear she was taken advantage of yet again.

Perhaps if we got Liz's or Diana Ross's people to help her, I cant think of anyone who might have good meaning people working for them that can advice Katherine.

You have the sons going in all different directions trying to make a dime, and sleeping having babies with each others wives, you have Janet who just goes her own way, and then Rebbie who we dont hear anything from. Then add Joe to the mix who is not working with a full deck, or any deck at all.

Janet and Rebbie, surely you see what your family is doing here, put a stop to it, and to everyone trying to take advantage of your mother. Quit reliving the death of Michael, and you all move forward. Heck people are not that interested anymore in MJ, other then to see some sort of justice, and also the drama going on in the Jackson family while all the brothers and Joe scramble around trying to make a buck.
Do your mom a huge favor, get them all out of her house, including all their children, girlfriends, wives, exwives, and clean out the people running things. There should be ONE person who knows EVERYTHING that is going on, and he supervises all the lower ones taking care of other details. Get rid of the followers. The one person who gets hired to work on the house maintenance does not need 25 people to work for him.(get it? he hires 25, charges Katherine for 25, and really uses 10), that is what all these people are doing to her.
Every damn lawyer, advisor, accountant and everyone else.

I feel horrible for Katherine, this is so sad to see her showing up for court hearings, and other stuff, and then this to honor Michael and no one else is there, and she is probably obvivious as to who it was for or who started it. ;(
