There is something intrinsically wrong with people who think their understanding and grief for Michael Jackson, who by the way was a stranger to you, albeit a famous one, outweighs the grief of his mother and family. I suggest that many of the posters on this board have no interest in justice for Michael if you would come here and constantly insult and degrade his family. No matter what you think of how they are handling their business, it's just that, their business. Maybe if you could imagine your own child, then imagine standing in Mrs.Jacksons shoes under the same cir***stances, you would not be so judgemental and would learn the meaning of empathy and compassion. The worst fear and pain in the world is to survive a child and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy nor taunt them should it happen. There is no greed implied in inheriting the assets of your family and the Bible speaks on it. The Bible does not mention executors however, so before you get on your high horse and insult the Jacksons, specifically Mrs. Jackson on Michael's estate and her specific approach to it, ask yourself what YOUR motives are for feeling that way. I doubt there is anyone on this board that would willingly relinquish ALL control of a loved ones life work inheritance to any executor without any say or without a fight. So I, for one, commend Mrs. Jackson for her strength and conviction as she goes about seeking justice for the death of her son without concerning herself with the way the media manipulates her every move into a negative slant because justice comes in many forms and I hope she seeks them all. Everyone one who loved Michael and his music wants justice for him, but God wants us all to learn something along the way.

Its getting to the point that i can't stand the sight of Katherine Jackson, who is continuing to use MJ for whatever financial gain she can get. She got some nerve to make that flippany remark that suing her business partner is same as suing her. That's not truth but MJ's estate should make it true. However, i guess the executors of MJ's estate is not suing her because of her age, and out of pity that she is already using her monthly stipend from MJ to pay off a million dollar lawsuit that she lost.

------------------------------------------------------
Consider yourself lucky -- so far -- mama. They SHOULD be suing you as well, for doing everything against Michael's wishes and against what you know he would have wanted. You didn't cremate him as he wanted, you've exploited his children to sign your gaudy $5G belts and in other ways in pursuit of a dollar bill, you're trying to sabotage the estate's efforts as they pursue quality projects worthy of your son's legacy (while you and your "business partners" hawk "AS SEEN ON TV" garbage), you're partnering with Michael's worst enemies and sleazebag, porn-king, con-men, you're gouging fans with the prices of the merchandize you're hawking on Jackson Secret Vault, you defy the authority of the estate administrators hand-picked by your son and seem determed to "get yours" any way you can by exploiting your son't death. It pains me to write this, but your actions are shameful and repulsive. The only reason you haven't been sued yet by the estate is because they don't want to sue Michael's mother or an 80-year-old woman. But just keep it up, and you'll soon be served with papers too.

But what she's showing us is she doesn't *really* care about all that... what she really wants is every last dime she can get, cuz the greedy bitch doesn't feel like she's getting paid enough and deserves more

I ONLY feel bad about the fact that no parent should outlive a child, but when you treat your children like circus slaves, and live off their fame and wealth, then have the balls to cry about how little their "estate" is giving you? what a crock of pure evil this woman is

The lawyers,the two lawyers are actually the true benefactors of the MJ's song catalogue,they along with DR Murry slowly overdosed him,Micheal being dead was worth far more than being
alive.
Above statement is rumor but it's the popular one.

If you look at his will and the way it was written,If Katherine Jackson decides to try and gain ownership of the her son's estate,It states that whoever tries to challenge or tries to move the executors of his estate they relinguish thier rights as benefactors.

At least thats how the will was written,it's public.

Michael made it more than clear in his last will and testament that he wanted his mother to be taken care of for the rest of her life. And so the estate should carry out his wishes by suing her? That makes no sense. It's what MICHAEL wanted that counts, not what the fans want or think should happen. She was his mother and he clearly adored her.

Cathy i know this.You are missing the point here.Katherine said that by suing her partner the executors are suing her.
Do you honestly believe that Michael would have approved of her business with H mann just because she is his mother? Does that justify her actions?
Oh and where in Michael's will is it written that she should get a$26.000 monthly allowance FOR HERSELF ONLY and that all her expenses should be paid out of Michael's estate?

It's the 3 lawyers that are the ones that inherited his estate.


John Branca,John McClain and Barry Siegel,--Those three.

They were even so greedy that when they wrote the will,that is one of them dies or something happens to one,they will NOT seek to replace the one that is no longer able to act as one of the three executors lmao

The way it goes is that for every lawsuit that is filed by the Estate turns into millions of dollars of legal fees that are paid to the lawyers who happen to be friends of John Branca who is a lawyer himself. The monies that these lawyers are paid are being paid from the money of Michael's estate. What is happening is that the lawyers file these lawsuits and keep these cases going for as long as they can because they make over $500 an hour and every time motions are filed its hundreds of hours for all the cases being filed. This means frivolous lawsuits = millions of dollars that Michael's children do not get put into the trust for the kids. Last year the Executors of the Estat pocketed over 32 million dollars of the top and Mrs. Jackson was less than hundred thousand so add it up who gets the money? The lawyers and John Branca. The difference is with Howard Mann and others is that he owns the rights to do this in which the others do not. Mrs. Jackson and Michael's children get these proceeds to fight those that have taken over her sons Estate that was rightfully to be the kids legacy that Michael left for them not those greedy money grabbing executors and lawyers who hi-jacked it from the family with a Will that was supposed to be turned over to Michael's new attorneys. Michael had a new will in 2004 and only a copy exists and the original cannot be found and John Branca is not named in that will. It's not rocket science just follow the money for the truth so stop and think about....

I totally agreed with Becky, Mrs. Jackson, I know you loved your son as the world did but now that he's gone this doctor needs some type of punishment bestowed on him. He administered a drug that should not have been used in a home setting. Dr. Murray needs more than 4 yrs of prison if convicted because someone is dead and cannot come back but you can do your 4 yrs and go about your merry way. Let the Attorneys do their job and that is to protect what's lefted of Michael's money, he still has children to support. The Attorneys are only looking after the well fair of Michael and you have to remember he rehired most of them, I could be wrong but God don't let you leave this world without a warning and Michael rehired these people for good reason.

Michael's legacy of music belongs to his children.. they along with his mother are the legal heirs to his kingdom.. and those who have took it upon themselves to resort to SKULLDUGGERY and ILLEGALLY taking what was to be for Micheals children had better be ready for the BIG PAY BACK.. Your GREED HAS GIVEN WAY TO REVEALING WHAT YOU'VE REALLY DONE.AND NOW EVERYONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH.. GREEDY PEOPLE ARE NEVER SATISFIED BECAUSE GREED HAS NO BOUNDARIES OR LIMITS IT ONLY WANTS MORE AND MORE.. SO I'AM NOT SURPRISE AS TO WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THIS ESTATE.. IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN.. NOTICE WHO'S FIGHTING WHOM OVER HOW MUCH MONEY HAS BEEN MADE AND WHO'S GETTING HOW MUCH.. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASON'S MICHAEL HAD A NEW WILL MADE.. CAUSE HE KNEW JUST WHAT DEVILMENT WOULD TAKE PLACE ONCE HE WAS NO LONGER HERE..AND ALSO GREED IS VERY IMPATIENT FOR WHAT IT WANT'S ... WHAT HAPPENED TO MICHAEL HAS BEEN IN THE MAKINGS SINCE HE BOUGHT THE ATV CATALOG AND BECAME ITS OWNER AND CONFRONTED $ONY ABOUT THERE SKULLDUGERY BEHAVIOR AND NOT PAYING ITS ENTERTAINERS ESPECIALLY THE BLACK ENTERTAINERS..AND HE HAD A RIGHT TOO.. HE WAS THERE BUSINESS PARTNER , IN REALITY MICHAEL COULD HAVE VERY WELL BOUGHT OUT $ONY AT THAT TIME CAUSE THEY WERE IN FINANCIAL STRAITS ,, LOOSING ,AND SELLING OF PARTS OF THE COMPANY ... MICHAEL WAS A THREAT TO THEM .. CAUSED THEY NEEDED HIM AND HIS MUSIC ,,,AND ATV CATALOG..WHICH HAS SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND SONGS AND HE AQUIRED MORE BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY.. SO WHEN WAS MICHAEL BROKEN AND IN DEBRT... HE WAS COLLECTING ROYALTIES AND SPLITTING THEM WITH THE SINGERS.. AND HIM DOING THIS IS LIKE A TAX SHELTER FOR THE SINGERS THEY DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE TAXES INVOLVED..SO WHY WAS MICHAEL DOING A TOUR... WHEN HE HAD WEALTH.,. NO THE GREEDY PEOPLE WANTED MICHAEL TO DO A TOUR.. MICHAEL HIMSELF WASN'T INTERESTED IN TOURING , ESPECIALLY AT HE AGE OF 50, THAT WAS THE REASON BEHIND HIM BUYING THE ATV CATALOG IN THE FIRST PLACE .. SO HE WOULD BE SET FOR LIFE .. AND IT WAS A LIVING LEGACY TO HIS FUTURE CHILDREN...

FIGHTING OVER MONEY IS THE SIGNS OF THE BEGINNING OF THE ENDING OF A FRIENDSHIP... THIS ONE HAS COME TO AN END!*mjsunflowerz*
