Randy, Jermaine Jackson

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

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

0719_randy_jackson_jermaine_jackson_article
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.

update_bar

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."

I could believe that most of the Jackson siblings would write such a note, alleging irregularities. But Janet? I always thought she was the smartest and most normal of all of them. She has her own income. Her other brothers/sisters are another matter. They must be rather desperate for income to stoop so low.

grow up, be men and go out and get a job like the rest of us. Leave your mother alone. Looks like they take after their father, selfish and greedy.

It is so easy to see why Michael kept his family out of the loop , they are nothing but greedy leeches, not much better than the Chandlers and Arvizo's of this world to be honest. For years and years they have used Michaels money to pay their bills and keep their god knows how many kids in luxery, disgraceful!!!! According to Paris, Katherine is in good health and she wasn't impressed by the other Jacksons comments. Hopefully this will serve to let Michaels kids see what locusts the family are and i sincerely hope they get away from them all as soon as they can. Suprised that Janet is in on this but not Latoya, is Janet not rich enough, Latoya on the other hand never had any talent other than storytelling.
Michael worked so hard for every single penny he had and wisely left his estate in good hands and now more than ever it is so clear why he left his other family members nothing, lets face it he had carried them all for long enough, the sooner they get that they were never in the same league as Michael the better, they need to get jobs like the rest of us.

Same ole same ole...they ALL lived off Michael for all their lives. Now faced with the possibility they might have to work, they are trying anything. Obviously they can't make much in the entertainment world!!

NO doubt they are strapped for cash, they are a bunch of losers who lived off Michael Jackson for years!!! They are disgusting and disgraceful over any limit!!!! Trying to steal Michael's legacy won't serve, they seem to ignore that he put a clause in his will according to which anyone who contests it won't inherit ANYTHING IN ALL CASES!!! He knew how they are greedy!!! Aside from the fact that he totally CUT them out of his will, and already for this they can never have a damn thing of his Estate!!!! And aside from the fact that the will was APPROVED by the judge!!!! The Estate is doing a very excellent job, they are real friends of Michael and commendable people who really take to heart to preserve and protect his legacy, also and above all from greedy hungry for money people like them VULTURES!!!!

Why this mooching bunch of sleazeballs think that they are entitled to a brother's money is beyond me. MOST estates leave all their money to either wives or their own children... NOT siblings and mothers. I'd like the kids to get a good set of lawyers and ban these sleazy f'ers from even mentioning their father's name.

These two need to back off and get a real job and leave the money alone They didn't earn that money Michael did. That money belongs to the kids The sooner they see that the better things will be. It seem to me these lawyers have done and excellent job of getting Michael estate out of debt and in order and Randy and Jermaine can't stand the fact that they can't get there hands on the money that Michael has earned in death as well as when he was alive. So you two need to get a live and get a real job and leave the money that belongs to the children alone

Jesus! Does this "family" never stop? I have a new-found respect for MJ . . . He knew what he was doing when he left his siblings out of his Will. These people are SHAMELESS, corrupt, and morally bankrupt.

I think that the Jackson family have a right to question his will if there are irregularities, but WHERE IS THE PROOF? Instead of releasing a letter to the media, why not present in a court of law? It shows what he was dealing with during his lifetime. Also for something as important as this, why are they not united? RIP Michael Jackson.

MJ should have gave each sibling and father something. They made him who he became but instead, he left all to children.

MJ was all for himself if you notice that he never did a record, backup singers or tour with his brothers.

They stood by him for 2 trials and death.

Mean and Shame on MJ, the money goes to others and not his brothers, father and sisters.

Well, I hope this shows each of the three kids exactly what this family is all about. It may be a good thing for the kids that the family has done this now. It gives them plenty of time to distance themselves from Michael's family before they get their money.

Run kids. Move out of the state, don't allow them in your homes and don't take any of their phone calls.
