Joe Jackson: I Get No Respect

8/16/2010 7:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson's lawyer claims, his client has not been treated with "dignity and worth" by the judge in the Michael Jackson probate case.

Joe Jackson
Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, filed papers with a California appeals court, claiming the probate judge was wrong in shutting down Joe's attempt to 86 executors John Branca and John McClain.

The trial judge ruled Joe had no legal standing to object to the duo, because Joe himself was intentionally excluded by MJ as a beneficiary under the will.

But Oxman claims Joe was financially dependent on his son and should therefore have a right to object to the appointment of the men who are making financial decisions for the Estate.

Although Joe is alleging various misdeeds on the part of the executors -- including fraud and embezzlement, which the executors strongly deny -- the lawyer for Michael Jackson's kids claim Joe is actually harming them with all the "procedural wrangling."  Margaret Lodise, the kids' lawyer, says Joe only cares about his stake in the Estate and, therefore, he's "the ultimate dog in the manger."

What a Effn s***bag. He doesn't deserve shizzle. He caused ALL his sons' problems and now Michael, his most bread-winning child, is dead, and he is trying to suck him dry. How pathetic. Michael knew his father was Sheeot and that is why he was excluded. He deserves nada. Go to hades you abusive basteeeerd.

OK Joe, which of the following do you NOT understand?!?!?!?:

1.The trial judge ruled Joe had no legal standing to object to the duo.

2.Because Joe himself was intentionally excluded by MJ as a beneficiary under the will.

Just as Joe Pesci said in CASINO: Always the dollars, always the f-ing dollars.

Idiot!    

Joe jackson is just a pimp. He didn't care for his son when he was alive; he looked at him as a paycheck, which is why his son 86'd him out of the will. The judge is right; pimp daddy has no standing so nothing he says matters. As for "dignity & respect", pimp daddy has none & treats no one with them, so no one should treat him as such...

No matter what anyone says, IF IT WASN'T FOR JOE JACKSON, THERE WOULD BE NO ESTATE to argue over. NONE of you, including all those lawyers who are getting PAID, could take 9 kids, while he is working in a steel mill and take those 5 boys and launch the Jackson Five which produced Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, etc. Joe wasn't perfect but neither is ANY of us.
