Katherine Jackson -- Hangin' in Britney's Hood

12/16/2010 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ordinary people usually hit up a Motel 6 while their home is being renovated -- but Katherine Jackson is no ordinary person.

Here's where Katherine will be living -- along with Michael Jackson's three kids -- for the next few months. It's a 12,670 square-foot mansion in Calabasas, CA -- just a block from Britney Spears!

Katherine is plunking down $26,000 a month -- the exact amount of her monthly allowance from the Michael Jackson estate -- while her Encino home is being extensively remodeled.

The 7 bedroom rental features a game room, movie theater, guest house, Jesus juice wine cellar, and much more.

UPDATE:  TMZ has learned, the MJ Estate is paying the $26 grand a month for the rental, in addition to all the other perks Katherine gets, including cooks, security, cars, taxes, house maintenance, vacations, house renovations, etc. etc. etc.

She deserves it, she the mother of the king and MJ kids also deserve all the great things in life. And that "Jesus juice" isn't funny, tmz, try harder next time!

Do you always have to be so disrespectful of Michael? Why add the words Jesus juice to wine cellar. NOT funny!

Wow!!! That is as cheesy a mansion as you can get without going to Las Vegas. Gold kitchen faucet fixtures? My F**king God...even God himself/herself would not have such tacky finishes. Well...I'm guessing this home belongs to some shiek from the middle east or to some wealthy garbage dump owner from the Phillipines, that is the only explanation I can come up with. ALL that room for 1 old women and 3 little kids...yeah...that makes LOTS of sense.

Haha I hate the kitchen faucets as well.....same with the showers....who the hell has any idea how to work them taps ?! That always killed me while in the US. Every single hotel room, different way to work the shower. A frixxin mistery each and every time...always got burned with hot water or surprised with icy cold....

a normal person would not spend 100% of their income on housing alone
how is she planning to cover the other costs-like food, transportation, medical, dentists, clothing, utilities etc. not to mention the cost of the reno at the other home

rather than live within a generous allowance she will be hitting the estate up for more money I guess

she is fortunate that her son's estate is increasing in value to accommodate all of this

If you can't be respectful of Michael, please remember he has children (and their classmates) that could be reading this. I'm losing respect for Harvey and TMZ.

Whomever writes these stories on TMZ needs to grow up...Seriously! If it was anyone other then MJ that had a nic for wine we would never hear about. Who cares already and was IT NOT proven in court that he did NOT give the kids the wine they took it upon themselves to break into the wine cellar and drink while MJ was out of the country??? Geez...

Has for the rent I am sure the estate pays for it and it is not KJ's allowance that covers it. His kids are used to living in big houses TMZ do you really expect them to stay at motel 6? I am far from being rich and i don't stay at motel 6 when i go on vacation, and the Jacksons are suppose too?? Geez Harvey, when is the last time YOU have stayed at motel 6????????

Hey Harvey

The true mark of a leader is knowing when to rein your people in. Freedom of the press(I use the term loosely), does not mean being tasteless and tactless. EPIC FAIL

Good Day♥

HMMMM    

Adore Michael Jackson, feel for his kids...Yes I feel a but coming on! Harvey Levin and gang, keep up the laughs. Doesn't anybody else hear a cry from Katherine of "I need more MONEY, Joe is just costing me sooooooo much"? As you know, Joe Jackson MUST be supported in the style to which he feels ENTITLED TO
