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.

Fans like you need to come back to reality and think for a second. Katherine gave birth to Michael she loved him more than any fan could and i am sure she loves her grandchildren as much, it's easy to bash over the internet.

Mann, Vacarro and Shaffel are all out for what they can get. The stuff in question was left in storage by the senior Jackson's over a decade ago when they couldn't pay the bill. The vendor, Vacarro, got a judgment; they couldn't pay, so he took their stuff? Michael sued to get it back, but then came the trial, Michael's complete distrust and leaving the country, and the sleazoid Vaccaro kept the stuff through some legal loophole. Now he's sold it to Mann and Schaffel who partnered with Katherine to sell to the public. While I don't agree with everything the Estate is doing, they must stop this before it breeds others hawking MJ's stuff illegally. Mann says the lawyers don't care about the kids; does he care about the kids; no, he cares about the MONEY!

If the executors were getting a share of the profits then the letter would not have been sent. Mrs. Jackson loves all of her grandchildren not just PPB. She's found a way to earn money of her own......The executors and nay sayers are all picking at the ant in their a n u s over this too. Is there no end to this madness over every pimple, shaved bump and ingrown hair of MJ's estate or family.....my goodness!!!

PPB are doing well because they have the love of their family and structure of Mrs. Jackson. Not to mention all those cousins who are similar in age. That's a huge support group who can relate to PPB on their level. PPB miss their father but they are adjusting to the world they live in without him, just like any of children who have lost thier parent.

And yes, Branca does know MJ3 and has been around them in the years prior to MJ's passing. If the executors did not care about MJ3, they could sell the ATV catalogue tomorrow, clear all debits and close the estate ASAP.

Mann is a mental and emotional user and abuser of the elderly and children.

Michael DID NOT leave all of his money to the J3. he left 40% to Katherine to disprse as she saw fit because he loved and trusted her. She will give it to other family members just as you would. Joseph is still her husbnad and in California 50% of hers is his and vice versa. And Michael knew that when he left her not just an allowance but 40% of his total estate. Where is her 40% before she dies? Where is the money that is suppossed to go to charities,20%?

@Chip From what I've understood,after Katherine dies her 40% goes to MJs children,so then they would be getting 80%

Havenhurst is a safe house where all bills were paid by Michael and now the estate. The brother, wives, and kids have been supported there all of Michael's life, and now the estate supports all who live there. Isn't that enough? Why does Katherine need to involve herself with this kind of s***? She has all she needs and more. I think it's Joe doing this and Katherine is his puppet. She does not need the money. She gets a huge amount of money every month from the estate for her personal needs. This money has to be for lending out to her other kids, and for Joe. As far as MJ3 they don't go for the want of anything the estate lawyers make sure of that!

And Howard Mann cares about the children? I don't believe Katherine does, either. She keeps trying to bilk the estate of money. Michael's estate paid the house mortgage, along with all of the other bills, and gives her a monthly stipend, which she claims is not enough. Katherine, what on earth do you spend money on that requires more and more? I wish I had $26,000 per month coming into my household.

While we're on the subject, I'd love to know what Michael memorabilia Howard Mann destroyed, at Katherine's request. It must have shown Michael was not as pure as the driven snow or she wouldn't have cared. If she really did have thugs beat up Jesse Styles in order to get Michael's diairies, I'd like to know why she didn't hire a lawyer or buy the diaries, in order to acquire them legally. Was there something in the diairies about Michael she didn't want fans to know, lest it reduce her income?

Katherine, you're digging yourself into a bigger and bigger hole.

the split on the estate is: 40% Katherine Jackson,40% kids, 20% charity.

it is correct that the kids will be supporting all Jackson losers forever.Katherine Jackson has no brains or business sense whatsoever,hooking up with an nude online gaming entrepreneur????? who is advising this woman??? and she is in charge of mjs kids, at 80 years old??? God knows what they are doing in the house without her realizing it on the computer or whatever.MICHAEL WE WANT YOU BACK. WE NEED YOU.YOUR KIDS NEED YOU.!!!!!!

Legal Eagel on post 6.,Thats what I have read , that the people
managing the estate increased their fees to 15 % + the hourly fees for their work on top.The more complications ,the more certainty to have a great income for the rest of their lives.
Michael was and will continue to be the meal ticket for some very rich people,"let them eat cakes!"
