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.

It has been said that Katherine and MJ’s children have yet to receive their monthly stipend from the estate – STILL!
It has been said that Janet’s efforts of late have all been to assist in providing mother and MJ kids with living expenses.
There is a school of thought that as MJ’s mother she has the simple right to express herself with personal pictures and stories of her son for the fans- knowing how much MJ loved his fans— and yes, probably to supplement her $0 income from the estate.
I dont see her as greedy at all= she was not MJ’s business partner – she was his mother.

I have NO faith in Katherine Jackson! If Joe was beating them, then Katherine was watching. I think being so submissive to Joe kept her from being part of his daily life. In her Oprah interview it was clear she spoke to him on the phone, but had no direct connection with him. I remember reading here that she gets $86,000/month and the ESTATE approved to give her more! Then she goes and sides with Joe and sues so he can get $15,000/month for himself. I think the Jackson's are the greedy ones, the estate is doing right by the kids (yes, the lawyers get huge paydays as well, but it was Michaels' wish). Yes, Michael truly loved her, but he clearly kept his distance. If Joe was beating them, then Katherine was watching.

If you look up the word greedy you will see a picture of this old bitch and her loser family. Who cares about her dead accused child molesting junkie son or his make believe kids anyway?

Finally someone who gets it right. This greedy old woman went right to court to get custody of those white children, who are NOT HER REAL GRANDKIDS so that she could make sure she kept getting paid.

If anyone is greedy it is her. She is kicking out her real black grandchildren so that she can keep living with the white kids and keep cashing in on things.

To all MJ fans,

In recent weeks, we have noticed TMZ has been posting some very damaging stories about Michael Jackson and/or his beloved children. A group of MJ fans have come together to raise awareness on how we, Michael Jackson's fans, are helping TMZ to destroy his legacy by visiting their website, posting comments and sharing their links.

We have two important MJ fansites, http://www.mjsarmy.proboards.com/ & MJNewsAlerts.com monitoring TMZ for you. All their reports will be quickly reposted on these two fansites and you can go there to read the stories & leave comments as you wish. We are doing this for you & for the protection of MJ's legacy, so you don’t have to keep giving tmz hits. Hits = TMZ profits.

If you stop visiting their website, they will finally get it: Negative & made up stories by Conrad Murray's legal team, about the Estate or the Jackson family to make MJ look bad is simply unacceptable.

The only pain they can feel is financial. Time to take a stand against media bias and exploitation of MJ.

More information is available here: http://www.filthytabloidtrash.com/category/tmz-trash/

Please stop rewarding the continuous abuse of Michael Jackson & his legacy on this website.

Thank you.

Mrs. Jackson makes some good points about her rights to write a book about her son. It seems like the executors of the estate would allow her to use her son's name and likeness. However, I think what the executors of the estate are doing is against Mann is the wise thing to do. There is a reason why MJ didn't appoint a family member to handle his estate. Mrs. Jackson is showing us the reason why.

I like Katherine, however the estate lawyers are doing a fantastic job. I'm not sure why she is complaining, they paid off her house, she gets a large chunk of change each month. What's the problem? What the estate is doing is taking care of all debts and providing for Michael's children!! Michael's children are most important in this!!

I think the estate needs to back off. Let the family do whatever they want. Michael would not want his mother upset. She has this trial coming up. If the extra stress causes her to be sick or dies what will happen to Prince, Paris, and Blanket? When the estate paid off everything, they kind of took any hope she had of leaving anything to her other kids when she dies. All goes back to MJ3 so her other kids won't get anything. Maybe she is trying to make a nest egg for her other kids. Leave her alone!

This nasty looking greedy old witch is so illerate and stupid (thinks we are) that she thinks we the public buys into her sob story.

John Branca/team MJFT MAIN concern is to protect the assets/legacy and image of Michael Jackson....at all costs.

This, the greediest showbiz mother of all time should be kissing the MJFT lawyers feet.

But her problem is that SHE wants control so she can again squander it all away just like she did the past 40 years...
went through 100,000s of millions, with nothing to show but Hayvenhurt in foreclosure, her jewels, and the rags on her back (and on her dysfunctional famewhore spouses/childrens)

STFU Katherine

lmao...

Once Jacko's GREEDY relatives take over his estate, they will bankrupt it too in record time. It's only thanks to Branca that Jacko ever had any assets, not his greedy clan of IDIOTS.
