Joe Jackson Compromises Wrongful Death Claim

12/2/2010 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson may have just dug himself a hole to China during a TV appearance in Brazil ... by telling the host Michael Jackson "never supported me."



During the interview on "Hoje em Dia," the interviewer incorrectly said, "According to TMZ, you were being supported by Michael."  Joe responded, "No, he never supported me."

The statement flies in the face of his claim in the Michael Jackson Estate case ... that Michael did indeed support him -- which is why Joe asked for an allowance.

Even more serious for Joe, by admitting MJ never supported him, it could severely compromise his wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.  Joe's statement could severely limit his monetary claim, because now he can't show he lost money when Michael died.

TMZ previously reported, Michael didn't support his dad, but he gave Katherine $50,000 - $66,000 a month ... and she would then use that money to pay for Joe's living expenses

Michael also cut Joe out of his will.

Lime to a Lemon.....
So Joe is at it again? And TMZ is highlighting his antics, AGAIN?!! My question is, where is Joe's attorney to tell him to clam up until his case is heard? Well I'm not worried about it anyway....as long as his WRONGFUL DEATH case gets assigned a date, we'll get to see a few of the RATS exposed for what they are regardless of how Murray tries to hide them....
-#15: kate1, I would LOVE to see a full-fledged INQUIRY into the authenticity of the Will, but unfortunately, the only one who had the authority to do that was Katherine--since PPB are not of age, and she opted to listen to he attorney's advice to cooperate with the Executors and get paid....not very smart....unless all you care about is MONEY.....
You can bet if it was MY family member or loved one, I would've pushed for an inquiry and risked forfeiting the inheritance. I know most people would grab the money and run--believe me, my first instinct would be to do the same...but then in hindsight, I'd realize that I have to live with myself, KNOWING I did NOTHING to question a will that was DUBIOUS at best.......
There is NO amount of money in the WORLD that can buy peace of mind.......
-#16: really?, your name fits EXACTLY how I feel about your post. You ARE kidding, right? First, I do NOT believe Michael is alive, though I wish to GOD he was, but even if he was, I don't think he'd have anything to do with these OVERPRODUCED, HALF-BAKED Tracks that Sony is releasing. If anything, he'd insist on redoing the whole thing or canning the project like he did with Thriller when it wasn't up to his standards at first listen....
Actually, you made me realize something--these low grade tracks are PROOF that Michael is NOT alive because he would NEVER allow these tracks to go any further than the studio, much less be released to an unforgiving, barbaric US!!!
-#27: Hey MiMi! Thanks for the link--this news is the best I've heard ALL MONTH!! GON' MICHAEL!!!
-#28: anony, Michael is NOT half-responsible because he didn't inject himself with Propofol, Murray did. And if you really took time to THINK about what was stated in the LAPD affidavit, you'd realize that MURRAY is the only one who informed us that Michael "begged" him for Propofol. Murray--the very SAME doctor accused of injecting him with it.....and then they dug up Cherilyn Lee an unknown, RANDOM nutritionist who treated Michael and the children--who knows where she came from...and she wouldn't say who referred her to Michael which is KEY in finding who set this whole PLOT in motion....
And for the record, the moment Murray pulled the trigger by injecting the Propofol, he committed murder. Someone ASKING you to do something doesn't make you responsiblebut the moment you follow through on their request, it's on YOU, not them-- you can't be HALF responsible for MURDER.....Michael is not half dead, he's FULLY gone!!
-#36: Hey nan, excellent post! I agree and I just don't get how they've justified the oversight of Investigating his death. Network TV has coverage of every case known to man out there, but almost NOTHING for Michael, whose death is literally SHROUDED with inconsistencies, LIES, and SHADY MOTIVES--which in itself, is what makes me KNOW that he was MURDERED!!!
As for Harvey, who did he speak to regarding the tracks? In all honesty, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for him to help with the Investigation. He clearly knows all about Tohme, Barrack, et. al., and has only printed stories on their ACTIONS, which were more likely already published on another website anyway. If he REALLY wanted to expose Tohme and Barrack, he would get his guys to find them and question them about their involvement in Michaels death and their actions ever since....
AS for his lack of hidden agenda with Sony and the Estate, I think...NOT. He seemed very anxious to get the tracks out there and convince everyone that they were real. I even posted something about his possible connection to Sony and my post was erased.....there it is....
-#42: Barb A., I think you hit the nail on the head. I've said for some time now that Ol Joe may have Alzheimer's. Just check out ANY TV appearance he's done and it's pretty obvious.........
-#44: aq, and this is news to who? Let me rephrase that....STIFLE!!!

Good golly MJ's family are useless spongers. Why didn't they help him when he was alive? Who on earth needs $50-$60...K PER MONTH to get by? No wonder Katherine is sticking close to the children....so she can get their money too. Good luck kids - hope they get some independent guidance and mentoring as they grow up otherwise they'll get done over on their money. Hope they all make good choices.

Joe and Katherine are married! Whatever Katherine received is also Joe's. Michael knew this. Michael also did not exclude Joe from his will. If he had wanted to do so he would have stipulated that by leaving him $1.00. In old Black families the mother/wife/woman is always left the money to distribute to the whole family. Every member is not identified in the will unless something special, good or bad is intended. Michael left his money to Katherine and therefore the WHOLE Jackson family, as she saw fit. Get over it!

_______________________________________________________________

where's the transcript of questions that were asked of Mr. Jackson? Joe is an elderly man yall!!!! good grief. Mr. Jackson should not be answering any questions regarding the case with anyone. Mr. Jackson should not agree to do any interviews with anyone regarding anything as to his claims either. I will be glad when all this sh(*&^)+*&*^% is OVER!!!


btw: to the haters who mock mr. jackson's attire. mr. jackson's suit is most appropriate for any event on any given sunday......or saturday evening!

Good cop. Bad cop. JJ definitely seems to be enjoying playing the role of bad cop. He seems happy with the way things are going. Probably loving all the media attention and interest in his family.

How do you cut someone out of a will who was never in it?

Michael didn't need to specifically leave money to his fathe rbecause he gave alot to his mother for ehr to help support his dad and other family members. Michael didn't need to support his family but he did because he made the most money and families always have each others backs.
