Randy, Jermaine Jackson

Plot to Get MJ's $$$ ... Allegedly

7/20/2012 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy and Jermaine Jackson are trying to get at Michael Jackson's money, by hatching a sinister plot involving Katherine Jackson ... so claim sources connected with the Michael Jackson Estate.

Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Tito and Rebbie Jackson all signed a letter, demanding that the Executors of the MJ Estate step down, claiming the executors are failing so badly, the stress caused Katherine to suffer a stroke.

Sources connected with the Estate are now lashing back, telling TMZ they believe Randy and Jermaine (they are not including the others) are strapped for cash and know when Katherine dies there is no way they can get their hands on a penny of MJ's fortune -- that's because all of the money goes to charity and in trust for Michael's 3 kids.

Our sources believe ... Randy and Jermaine are trying to make it appear that Katherine is infirm and may need a conservatorship. And the sources further believe Randy and Jermaine will try and get themselves appointed as her conservators, which would give them access to more than $70,000 a month.

We know Katherine's people have denied she had a stroke. As for the Estate failing miserably, it seems like bad timing, because new court docs just revealed the Estate has grossed nearly half a billion dollars, wiping out MJ's massive debt.

Calls to Randy and Jermaine have not been returned.


Jermaine Jackson has released a statement, through a rep, saying, "I note that this 'story' comes from 'sources close to the Estate'. It, therefore, does not surprise me that such a wildly false claim is being invented, presumably to deflect attention away from this family's very real concerns about the Estate."

The statement continues, "This claim is as far-fetched as it is untrue, but such are the anti-Jackson falsehoods we have come to expect from 'sources close to the Estate.'"

"I will reiterate that this family's first and foremost concern is our mother's health, welfare and well-being. Nothing else."

Randy looks like no one in family and never has, even as a little boy.... I wonder if he is the Khloe Kardasian of the Jacksons.

I cannot believe this story! My God! Michael must have known how this siblings would behave and that's why he
made his will iron-clad. What a sad situation for his children who I hope come out of this with their faith in humanity intact. Shame on the siblings for causing these kids and their grandmother such grief and anxiety, which is the last thing they need. Kudos to Tito for withdrawing from this disgusting plot. At least he realized the true nature of "the letter" and withrew before it was too late. I hope Tito can re-establish a happy family relationship with Michael's children. The rest of the siblings should go and hide somewhere for shameful acts against their own brother's beloved children and their own mother.

Strange: Brothers on tour,about to release an album, no Michael to Hur Tmen and Poof Drama! My advice , If Michael borrowed money from you folks and didn't pay it back like most rich moochers! consider the money gone! You should have gotten promissory Note! If you have one, sue the estate and leave Katherine out of it! She no better than Michael! Jermaine Remember the LA Babyfact thing! You cn't win with richfolks unless you are rich! Do Like Tito!

These two conniving brothers have been leeching MJ since day one. They shared the SAME WOMAN and fathered several kids with that woman. That same woman woud NEVER leave the house of Katherine in Encino which Michael bought for his mom. I am not surprised to learn that these two conniving, money-hungry brothers are now after the money Michael left for his three kids. GREED IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

I can see that the media likes to speculate about what the motives are. Really who cares. MJ was a sick man who escaped by doing drugs. The kids seem like spoiled brats. Talking smack on twitter about your family. Wow...Would be nice to see them in 10 years or less after they are in and out of rehab and drop a few sex tapes to boot. By then they should be offically broke and living off residuals if they were smart enough to secure any deals.

This whole story is sad...sad. Michael raised his children so well and knew that his sisters and brothers were always jealous of him; so sad. I have to say, I thought more of Janet but have completely lost ALL respect for her. If you notice, her net worth online has not been updated since 2007?? I am done with you Janet. Michael, we all miss you so much and will watch your Amazing kids. Kids, keep your heads up and know that we are here for you and so is your beloved, spirit.
