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.

0628_mJ_MOMORIAL_TMZ
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.

Shame on Katherine for turning up at this event, which was a vile exploitation of her son's memory and legacy. Old Joe is 100% behind this money making venture. Michael would NOT have wanted this. MJ fans should not be tricked into believing this was a MJ Estate backed venture. Stay away from ANYTHING endorsed by Old Joe and not by Branca, McClain and Weitzman. They are the only people with the interests of Michael's three children at heart. As Katherine is now 80 -81(?) maybe she's now no longer mentally fit to look after things. ALL decisions MUST be made by the MJ Estate....nobody else. Again, I say shame on Katherine for turning up at this event and shame on her for always allowing Old Joe to manipulate her and everyone else. He's a controlling violent bully...still !!!

@All. What YOU people don't want to see is that it's TMZ who is cashing in on the Jacksons, selling you all kinds of lies their SOCALLED SPIES feed them with. When are you going to wake up and stop buying this. TMZ pays their SPIES a lot of money to get INSIDE information and then spices it with LIES and INNUENDOS. TMZ sometimes have a point, but mostly it's just BS. Like all the news and FALSE EVIDENCE like a LIST of TONS of DRUGS taken from MJ's house after he passed and then the autopsyreport shows just one list of drugs that were LEGALLY prescribed by 4 doctors. TMZ and others made out MJ to be a terrible JUNKIE when all he was doing was easing, mostly his MENTAL pain with the drugs he got from the DOCTORS. It's exacly this kind of speculations and badmouthing about him that got him so far in the first place.TMZshould beld be reporting about these FEELGOOD doctors,THEY are the ones who should be DRAGGED down for LITTERALLY KILLING him with drugs. NOT MJ's family who he loved despite what people may think. And LEAVE his DEARLY BELOVED MOTHER ALONE, to him she was a SAINT. And you call yourselves MJ fans, SHAME ON YOU ALL!!

This whole fiasco is as pathetic as Joe, Katherine, Jermaine & all the rest of the leeches. Michael specifically chose these lawyers to carry on his wishes. Yet, Katherine chooses to exploit and disrespect Michael at every turn, all so that Joe can make money. Didn't Michael purposely leave his father out of his will and yet Katherine getting $26,000 a month is not enough? That money is supposed to take care of his 3 children and his mother. But Katherine insists on being greedy and stupid. A belt? A book? A for profit memorial? Totally going against Michael's wishes and doing as Joe instructs her to do. We all expect slimeballs to find a way to profit, but his own mother and brothers? They didn't love Michael, they loved his money and Michael knew it. I truly feel sorry for his children, because this family is dirty and greedy!!!! The only ones truly mourning his death are his children! Joe is going to do whatever he can to get his hands on any money he can, including using/manipulating Katherine & Michael's children. Greed is the root of all evil and this family is pitiful, pathetic and down right disgusting!! Rest in peace Michael & god bless his children.

It didn't stop the family from shoving a mic in their mouth (nearly down her throat) & putting them in front of the cameras at Staples did it?

I don't understand why you would get charged for going to a memorial. It's stupid. for the person who said that they are sick of people talking about him YOU ARE SO F***ING DUMB. Just because you are no one to be talked about doesn't mean that mj isn't. MICHAEL IS STILL THE BEST NO MATTER WHAT ANYBODY SAYS!!!!

Not sure how Tito could have been at Beverly Hilton last night because I saw him playing the Blues at Long Beach Bayou Festival, and he was getting down, and having fun with the rest of us!

If you all think for one minute that this lady doesn't have a clue let mespell it out for you.Katherine and Joe are still married and he still runs the show. Why else would she be at this so called memorial for her son. Think about who told her. Also if she didn't want all this responsibility of taking care of MJs kids and estate she could find someone to run things for her.So don't say she poor Katherine,she obviously wants to run the show.
