Katherine Jackson: Who Can Live on $26K a Month?

9/23/2010 10:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson can't make it on a $26,000-a-month allowance ... so she's asking for more.

TMZ found a judge's order filed yesterday in the Michael Jackson Estate case, in which the judge notes, "Counsel will give notice of proposed action re: adjustment to family allowance for the benefit of Katherine Jackson."

TMZ has already reported Katherine pulls in a temp allowance of $26,804 a month.

The document does not say how much more Katherine wants, but it's pretty ironic since she's making a lot of money on the side.

what do you expect, shes your typical african american grandmother who has about 28 grandkids living with her from all her deadbeat sons who cant take care of them their selves. so like most african american men in this country, they shot out about 20 kids each and most are shipped to grandma's house to be raised. sad sad story happening all over the country.

The Jackson family is absolutely pathetic.They are all about money and nothing else. They fail to pay creditors.They sue anyone who has worked with michael and then they cry poor.Cant live off of 26k a month???? Huh, some in this economy dont make that in a year.Doesn't the mother make plenty of money on the side plus the money she gets from the estate? She should sit back and shut up and let the money go where it should to her grand kids.

You guys are killing me. It is her money and his childrens money. If you had this kind of money and you left it to your mother and children would you appreciate a bunch of envious people critizing your mother? Think people before you talk. His mother or children could be reading this.

It is very simple; TMZ Please make public Sony/Atv publishing income that the Jackson estate owns 50% of and the Mijak publishing income that hold and publishes all of Michael Jackson's recordings and which the Jackson estate owns 100% of then explain how Katherine Jackson Michael's mother who is entitled to 20% of the estate only gets $26,000 per month even thought we know that Michael jackson left behind a huge that is reportedly already paid off if not most of it.

Think of all the people she has to support. Sounds like there is a crowd who depend on her. That's got to cost a lot.

She probably can't live on that amount because she's giving it to her slacker sons, grand kids and deadbeat husband Joe. This really is sad, she needs a keeper.

she and mj3 are the beneficiary..
why wouldn't they want their own money after all debts are paid?
the estate is making astronomical money..
the money , imo mj would have made in 93 had it not been for the bs...was also astronomical
. he paid the chandlers and francias family and more importantly . LARRY FELDMAN... to go away because they were standing in the way of this kind of money and he was ill advised..
and i say families, because it was never the children who alleged anything ,rntil badgered.. just their deadbeat parents.there is the common thread.
larry feldman more or less alluded to that at the recent forum, imo
for such a generous and successful person to have only a handful of people care about his well being is just so disheartening

This just confirms that she and the other Jackson's are nothing but money grubbing *******s. They're suing everyone left and right because the gravy train(Michael)is gone.

I live on 1500 a month with a husband who has MS and is wheelchair bound and no public assistance. Sit down and have a cup of coffee with me Mrs. Jackson and I will show you how to live on 26,000.
