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.

It just shows that the older you get the greedier you can get. What a bitch. I bet Michael wasn't paying her that much while he was alive. The estate already paid off her house so it's not like any of that money is going toward a mortgage.

This is her husband trying to get money from the estate through her, or she is trying to get more for one or more of the brothers.

This a tabloid site,and it has been proven several times that tmz is not very accurate with their "reports" when it comes to the Jackson family. IF she is really asking for more money,there must be more to the story than tmz is posting(you know BS sells,the truth does not),or this story is just more BS from tabloid trash sites.

Why is everyone spitting venom at Katherine? Why shouldnt she demand more from her inheritance? Should she allow blood sucking lawyers and estate administrators to walk away with her sons hard earned money and continue to profit off of him after they all sat idley by and watch him die a slow painful death? Come on! Be reasonable people. Yes, its more than the rest of us will ever see. But, we didn't earn it nor did we inherit it. If it were any of us, we would want every dime we are entitled too whether its one dollar per month or 1oo thousand dollars per month. This estate has earned a lot since Michaels death and Michael wanted her to be cared for by his estate in the manner to which she has been accustomed. He loved his mother and he took great care to meeting her needs. She is entitled to it. Get your money Mama Jackson!

YES IF CATHERINE IS PAYING THE BILLS AND THE OTHER FAMILY HAS MOVED OUT SHE SHOULD HAVE HER REQUEST AS LONG AS SHE IS NOT KEEPING JOE ON TOP OF IT.

It has always been and will always be about $$$$$$$$. This family watched Michael die in front of their eyes and cared about nothing but $$$$$$$$...and still only care about $$$$$$$$. Since Katherine is funding Jermaine and his kids, Randy and his kids and their defunct wife, I would assume she would need more cash. Twisted bunch of greed.

NONE OF US have the EXPENSES this woman has. She has needs no ordinary person does i.e. security etc. This is Michael Jackson's money. He would WANT her to have whatever she needs to care for herself and HIS KIDS. Enough said. Stop being so critical when you don't understand the needs she would have beyond yours.

wow    

The average person doesn't live on that much money but people shouldn't be calling Katherine names. It's her inheritance and she isn't getting any younger. I'm sure that most of us would rather have a lump sum rather than a monthly installment. Rich people also have more expense and they're used to living a certain way. Katherine is supporting a large family and most likely wants to give them an inheritance before she leaves this earth. I'm sure the Administrators are pulling in that much or more per month. The money's there and Michael wanted her to have it. Leave this woman alone, you would all ask for more if you were in that position.
