Katherine Jackson -- MJ's Executor STOLE From Him

4/12/2011 11:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's mother says one of the guys in charge of the MJ Estate is a crook who stole from the singer ... and to top it off, she claims Michael never even liked the guy ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Katherine Jackson just filed a declaration in a case involving MJ's old charity -- the Heal the World Foundation.

According to the docs, Katherine is FURIOUS the estate is going after HTW for using MJ's image and likeness without permission ... and insists, "Michael would be very upset, if he knew that our charity was being torn down by people who say they are doing what he wanted."

Katherine then goes after MJ executor John Branca -- saying, "Mr. Branca was a man that my son was very worried about."

She adds, "Michael told me on more than one occasion that he did not like this man and did not trust him, he told me that John had stolen from him."

Katherine continues, "This lawsuit is exactly the type of awful thing that Michael said he was capable of doing."

UPDATE: We just got this from the Executors:  "We know that certain ludicrous statements were made recently that we won't personally dignify with a response.  We will continue to do our best to uphold and further the memory and legacy of Michael with the same passion we have always held for him."

I feel for this lady. It appears Joe Jackson was a horrible Father but Mrs Jackson has had a lot dumped on her, especially after Michaels death. It is a lot to handle, especially for a woman her age. Cut her some slack folks. Her life has not been perfect either.

Don't these people every STOP? They must do nothing but consult with their lawyers for 8 hours a day. They're so focused on money, when do they have time to enjoy their lives?

If Katherine Jackson had protected her children from Joseph when they were children, Michael Jackson would be alive today. She has some nerve trying to profit off of Michael's image. You can take a family out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of this family.

wacko jacko was a fraud    

She's a liar. She wants all the money for herself. Jacko didn't tell her anything. She should be worried about those kid the junky neglected instead or worrying about expanding her home. It's all about her. Bad momma should have gotten her sick son help instead of living off of him.

Give it a rest you greedy old woman, Joe is just trying to get his hands on that money and he's brainwashing you...let them do their job, Michael was about broke when he died and those men have made those children a ton of money....keep out of it and just enjoy it, you'll be dead soon and hopefully someone smart will be in charge of those kids when you are gone and hopefully they won't be named "jackson"

She's lucky the estate isn't suing HER! She's been using his image with her criminal partner but they haven't gone after her for her copyright infringements.

Please just let Michael rest in peace so the children can move on and quit dealing with all the crap! I'm sure the money means nothing to them and I am sure they will be able to make a living on their own. Seems like the adults are only worried about the money. It is not a bad thing to have to leave below your means people do it everyday!

TMZ.....no one who's intelligent gives a rats ass about MJ anymore! The dude's been dead for almost 3 years now and no one cares. Hell, I barely cared when it happened. The remaining Jackson family are so narcissistic and amoral that no one gives a damn either about them. Let's go to the trash heap on this family, okay? Thanks--an intelligent reader. P.S. Can you throw the Kardashian's onto that trash heap while you're at it? Thx again.....
