New Claim: Michael Jackson Supported His Dad

10/5/2010 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson secretly supported daddy Joe Jackson ... according to new legal docs.

1005_katherine_joe_EX_GETTY_TMZ_01
In legal docs filed in Joe's wrongful death case against Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael's former alleged manager, Leonard Rowe, wrote a sworn statement in which he claims Katherine acted as Michael's agent, funneling money to Joe for support. 

And Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, wrote his own declaration in which he claims he prepared financial docs for Michael during his 2004 custody battle with Debbie Rowe.  In those declarations, Oxman claims Michael disclosed he was giving Katherine $50,000 a month in the early 2000s and later it went up to $66,000.  Oxman says Katherine used part of the money to pay for Joe's living expenses.

The legal docs are being used in the wrongful death case to prove Joe has standing to sue -- in other words, he must show Michael had been supporting Joe during his lifetime.

Michael's camp had no comment.

Thanks chico for the 'heads-up' about LMP. Yeah, really...more shameless self-promotion we don't need. Thought if I heard about that movie-'Why Did I Get Married Too' just one more time, I was gonna hurt someone:)

Gotta go cook some dinner, enjoyed chatting with everyone! A 'good day' on the board:)

I think I told you about my husband and "Maria". Maria told me to forgive everyone. Give a hug, a real hug to someone. And a kiss.

Legally, If Joe was receiving money from Michael that would be considered income. Did Joe Jackson pay taxes on that money? Joe Jackson is also receiving Social Security AND if he claimed that money on his taxes they would adjust his benefits accordingly. IF he did not claim that money he will be in serious trouble from Social Security.

Not so fast!!!

If MJ gave his father money then it is a GIFT!!!!!

MJ is responsible for the taxes on the gift!!!!

The person who receives your gift does not have to report the gift to the IRS or pay gift or income tax on its value.

Michael Jackson´s WILL after he died said: 40% to his mother, 40% to his children, 20% to charities (let Prince handle that when he gets old enough).
Everyone seems to know what to do with that money. It is not your money, back off!
This is Michael Jackson´s money. He made that money for HIS FAMILY. AMERICA, You had him, you treated him like ****. Mow LEVE HIS FAMILY ALONE!! Back OFF! YOU have no right!

I know MJ's parents are old enough to be on the social security they're on and to make as much as they want but what about in their younger days did they claim all the millions MJ handed them for allowances, did they pay taxes on it? Michael Jackson's will specifically directly left his father out of his estate leaving him NOTHING and there was NOTHING in that will saying MJ wanted what he left to support his other family members (too many to mention)when is this family going to get the decency to build what they can for MJ's kids and stop all this other crap. Even MJ's Mother is supposed to leave whatever she has left to MJ's kids and with 29k mo that's just not enough so she'll be leaving those kids nothing frankly an advocate for those children would do more for them. This whole thing is very sad MJ is dead and they're still trying to squeeze more money out of him. MJ's mother wants to blame and sue the company MJ had to go back to work for to support her useless self and all her offspring who don't support themselves and they don't think they contributed to how his life ended. At least a few of them Janet & some others take care of themselves and don't try to basically live off the kids inheritance. What happened to Joe Jackson's "record company" he announced to the world days after MJ died for his own publicity?
