Joe Jackson -- Stay Out of Your Son's Estate

10/26/2010 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson's days of meddling in his son's finances are officially over -- the California Court of Appeal has ruled that Joe has no right to intervene in Michael Jackson's estate.

Michael Jackson estate.

Joe had been fighting to have a say in how MJ's estate is administered -- despite the fact that he was excluded from the will Michael signed in 2002.

But today, a panel of judges reinforced the decision the probate court made back in November -- that Joe lacked the proper standing.

Just how Michael would've wanted it.

MJ estate attorney Howard Weitzman tells TMZ, "We are pleased, but not surprised" at the Court of Appeal's ruling.

He's just like the hustler I met on the street who gave me the story about his house burning down, his wife and kid on the street and they need the last $30 to get tickets to Memphis to stay with his cousin.

The judge has done well! Indeed, he has no right to intervene in Michael's estate. He has cut off him from his will. Shame on him!!! The most important thing is money not his son!!!

He's not going to stop. He'll show up anywhere and everywhere...I see a Larry King interview in his future. Now if they can just make sure the $26,000 per month awarded each child is spent ONLY on them.

Sad really... the lack of respect. He developed and made them practice, and made those kids what they became - very famous and very rich! I believe that he should be entitled to a large part of the estate!

he gave all those kids his speical kind of loving so he should get at least half of it because without him your talking about just another bunch of kids in jail or on welfare,,,

Don't worry, there will still be plenty of drama out of Joe. I'm pretty sure he can still appeal to the California Supreme Court.

That is good news. Michael is probably smiling down right now.Joe Jackson does not deserve a penny from Michael's estate. Let that leach go promote himself and make his own money.

I'm not a huge MJ fan personally, but just looking at pictures of Joe Jackson gives me the creeps. There is just something fundamentally F'd up about that man and you can see it...has anyone ever seen this man smile? I doubt it.
