Katherine Jackson -- MJ Estate Lawyers are 'Greedy'

1/26/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson is unloading on the lawyers overlooking Michael Jackson's Estate -- calling them "greedy" ... and claiming they're filing lawsuits left, right and center just to make a quick buck.

In a recent interview from the Michael Jackson Secret Vault, Katherine says, "All these lawyers that are involved in Michael's business since he passed -- there's a lot of them -- I think they're trying to create different lawsuits and things because they're greedy and they want to get paid."

As we previously reported, the Estate is currently suing Katherine's business partner Howard Mann for allegedly profiting off MJ's name and likeness without their permission -- an accusation Katherine took very personally.

SHE'S the one who can't abide by the rule but, somehow, THEY'RE the ones who are greedy? Now we can see just WHY Michael didn't leave her in charge of his estate.

# 67 I said she is not perfect and that was a big mistake for her knowing that Joe did that to Michael. Back in those days it was disciplining! Wrong...of course!!!

Well, it must be true. Because if anyone understands the meaning of the word 'greedy', it's a member of this family.

That's calling the kettle black. That entire family is a great example of the people who live in America today; greedy fame whores.

The entire family leeched off MJ while he was alive and now in death. They should have pressed him to get help for his drug addictions and they did nothing. Now they want to blame someone else for his death.

Michael picked the people he wanted to run his estate to financially provide for his children and take care of his mother for the rest of her life. He knows how greedy some of his family can be, that's why none of them are running his estate. I'm sure he also knew that leaving his mother in unchecked control of his children's finances would mean that she would drain all the money by providing for leeches that she can't say no to... Joe, Jermaine, Jermaine's baby mama... MJ wanted his mother to take care of his kids, not run around trying to make money off of his name, which is why she is provided for by Michael's estate. Howard Mann and Joe Jackson are taking money out of MJ's kids' pockets and acting as though they have a right to do it because Katherine is given a little of the money. They pushed it too far... they are the greedy ones.

Ugh. I can't stand this old bird. She's just mad because she wants a bigger piece of the pie. What's greedy is that she knew the kind of son she had... Michael. She knew he'd do anything for her and she used it to her advantage. When Joe couldn't get anything out of him, she used the ole "If you love me, do this, do that" routine. She used Michael until the last drop because she knew he couldn't say no to momma. But now these people have a backbone and are saying no to her. OOOOO, WOW!!!

Shut the hell up and raise Michael's kids, Kate. Stop letting them go online and do the crap they are doing. Stop letting them dress inappropriately for pictures. Yes, that's right. Because you "raised" them so well so far, I've seen pictures of Paris with some bra showing, in a nice little pose in her room. And here I was thinking I was going to get to see a NICE picture of Paris. If anything, they are turning in to spoiled kids. They are getting everything they want and when they turn in to a Jermaine, you'll be sorry.

No one could be greedier than the Jackson family. I think they would actually sell his bone if they COULD GET AWAY WITH IT.

President Obama says false lawsuits and Nurse's Unions total almost 29% of our total Healthcare Costs.

Its time to enact Medical Malpractice Reform and stop these Nurses Unions from ripping off elderly Americans!
