KJ's Biz Partner: Estate Doesn't Care About MJ's Kids

12/11/2010 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The man doing business with Katherine Jackson just thumbed his nose -- BIGTIME -- at the Michael Jackson Estate ... essentially saying they're just a bunch of lawyers who don't care about MJ's kids.

Last night Howard Mann slammed the Estate for the suggestion it's more invested in helping MJ's children than he and Katherine -- saying, "I would ask if the Estate has ever met those children, ever spoken to those children. To me it's a farce that they care about what happens to those children."

Mann was In Beverly Hills ... outside the "Unveiling of the Jackson Secret Vault Lithographic Collection" -- his ongoing business venture with Katherine -- and an event that prompted MJ's Estate to fire off a cease and desist letter.

The estate's job is to take care of these children financially, for as long as possible. They are attempting to secure their financial future!

That doesn't involve meeting, talking to and/or forming friendships with them! This guy is an idiot.

Katherine Jackson should be ashamed to be involved with him!

Wow, what an idiot. He doesn't even know enough about the executors to diss' them. I've never met any of them and I already knew that the executors have met Michael's kids and not just in passing. Mann gives me the creeps. Maybe he'll hire Martin Bashir to make a do***entary of Katherine raising Michael's kids and spur accusations of her molesting children too. Katherine really needs to get away from Mann, but she couldn't get away from Joe, so the saga of tragedy continues.

The word "Do***entary" is not profane. Why was it edited?

He knows what he is doing is illegal,that's why he is trying to justify his actions.Of course the Estate knows and cares for Michael's children.

According to MJ's will, he wanted his mother to care for the children's physical and emotional wellbeing. He wanted the executors to care for their financial wellbeing. MJ did not say he wanted his brothers children supported by the estate forever. That is what Katherine is earning money for -- to support the brothers and their children.

This man Howard Mann is begging the estate of Michael Jackson to sue him.I hope he gets sued big time and Katherine Jackson is not allowed to do business with him ever again.He is selling books,DVDs,T-shirts,and music with Michael Jackson's likeness on them and he does not even have the permission of the estate to do that.

I feel so sorry for the kids.
From Michael´s sheltered and loving care - over to this.
I hope they will remember everything their father taught them and remain strong and true to themselves.

I am always amused by those posting here with ZERO KNOWLEDGE of Estate Law and how this process is handled through the courts. Maybe before you spout off at the mouth you might want to educate yourselves first and then you would understand what the Executors/Administrators of the estate can and can't do and what the are required to do under the laws of California.

A few more years and the heirs (the kids) will take what is theirs under the terms of the trust and the other Jackson family members, well, they better be getting a good education because they will be on their own. My two cents worth.

what this guy is trying to do is take from the estate and hide behind katherine to do it.by hiding behind michaels mother, he hopes it will make the estate look bad to the fans etc...and they will let it slide so they dont look like they are beating up on k..
i am no psychic but i could have told u the estate wouldnt just sit there and let this guy pick their pockets...
k should try and do a venture that includes the estate or whatever.like it or not they are running the show.. this guy just seems like a leech

They are lawyers. They will be in the same housing development in Hell that Johnnie Cochran is in. And I don't mean Hell, Michigan either. Here's how it goes:
Jesus: What was your profession?
Lawyer: I was a lawyer.
Jesus: Get in line with those other lawyers and automobile salesmen/saleswomen.
Lawyer: Where does that line lead?
Jesus: The elevator to Hell.
Lawyer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The lawyers and $ony only care about $$$$$$ while Katherine, Howard, and Michael's kids care about the interegity of Michael's legacy. Michael has probably rolled over numerous times in his casket because his estate signed with $ony. There is a video on Youtube of Michael speaking out against $ony (Google Michael Jackson Sony Kills Music).
