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 agree flowerpower..
the people who were ripping off mj were always trying to point to someone else
there were lots of people robbing mj blind but imo branca was not one of them and didnt like standing on the sidelines watching mj get taken by those kind of people...
and if branca was in place before aeg came calling, mj would never have been in the situation he was in with those loanshark types swimming around him...he would have seen that contract for what it was..a big sting operation to take his assets..
i think the people around mrs jackson are trying to smear branca and hope he will loosen the pursestrings to avoid further bad publicity.mj made certain his family would NEVER be in control of his assets.
these were michaels wishes..they should be respected...
i notice latoya isnt playing on trumps show to benifit the heal the world charity, she is playing for an aids charity he supported...

Branca sure hasn't cleared the air. Where was MJ on July 7, 2002? New York City that's where.

It's disgusting what you people are saying about an old woman, a mother, grandmother... She's repeating what her son said. Michael had Branca investigated and their was cause to believe Branca and Tommy Mottola were working together and that Michael was being robbed.

Michael fired Branca in 2003. MJ's will was allegedly signed on July 7, 2002 in Los Angeles but MJ was in NYC protesting Mottola and Sony. How does that happen? Branca was "hired". (I bet it wasn't by MJ) about a week before he died, and presented the will 7 years to the day that it was allegedly signed by MJ in LA. Again, MJ fired Branca in 2003 and Branca was ordered to turn over all papers to Michael or his new attorneys.

How much is Branca paying you to say such vile things about Katherine Jackson?

MIchael did fired this guy and Tom Messareu pointed out facts that Branca was stealing from Michael. I think proof is in the pudding, and audit needs to be done on these guys. And by the way the children and Katerine are the estate, the lawyers work for them not the other way around!!!!

Since MJ died the executors have profited millions meanwhile Katherine and MJ's children are given an allowance. It was MJ's effin money and his intellectual property the executors sold to Sony, and they profited from it to the tune of millions. CooCC

Excuse me, Phantom probably has a better job than you do, if you even have one. He also did nothing to hurt you at all, if it hurt you to look at the link, why did you click on it?

I agree with you re Branca not being there before MJ signed to contract with AEG.
Who ever told Michael its ok to sign such a contract should be shot if you ask me.
I too think that there are too many people whispering to Katherine ear and unfortunately I don't think she is too bright to make difference between good people or crooks.
That LaToya thing is interesting, she knows that they are fake therefore doesn't support it, good for her.
