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."

mj fan forever    

OF COURSE the Estate does not invent anything, THEY VULTURES are absolutely inventing that greedy unnatural mother Katherine is infirm, infact already started to say she had a stroke that NEVER had!!!
And that's exactly why they disgusting vultures are ""so"" concerned about their mother's health as they only and exclusively want to get her money then putting their hands on the entire Michael's Estate!!! They can say whatever they want but anything needs to be PROVED in court and OBVIOUSLY they have NO proof because everything they say is just part of their disgusting plot to have everything but NOTHING of what they are trying to set is ever going to happen!!!! They are only disgusting parasites!!!

I tend to believe the story is true, 1/2 the "Jackson" stories out there always include these two wanna bees and them being broke. Look at all of the tours they've wanted to start over the years to get the cash flowing again. They used to beg MJ. Evidentially these two have no cash and no talent. I hope they don't get a penny, they should have saved their money instead of putting on such an extravagant show for everyone to see how much money they had.

Hey Jermaine, we all know that YOU spend most of your time reading blogs to see what is being said about YOU.

YOU should instead look for some kind of employment you effing DEADBEAT.

Jermain, moron IT'S NOT YOUR ESTATE. IT'S YOUR BROTHER MICHAELS ESTATE ONLY. With provisions for his mother and his kids.

Get over it get a job and stop sponging off your dead brother for god sakes.

moe l.    

How could these people be related to Michael Jackson??? Michael Jackson was white (just look at MJ and his kids!), and these guys are clearly African American. They're trying to steal his money.

Let Janet run everything. I wouldn't trust any of the Jackson brothers with money.

This is not new. That certain siblings are after Michael's money is not news. These same people made complete fools of themselves after Michael's death, claiming the will was a forgery, or some such nonsense. These people just can't seem to accept that Michael had no desire to support them. He did not wish to tour with them anymore while he was alive--something that the siblings also can't accept-- and he had plans to support his children, his mother, his trusts, but not that greedy twosome!

Katherine's reaction to the letter:

I'm starting to feel a lot more compassion towards Randy, Jermaine et al.

I see now what they're up against -

Team A wants Michael Jackson's money - all of it.

Everything the estate is now pulling in.

Team B - the brothers and sisters?

Have a point in that they're were the launching-off point for Michael - they had a big hand in MJ's going solo - etc.

Team C - Michael Jackson himself - wasn't such a sweetheart -

Because it's Michael who created this complete mess/dissension and before Michael left.

It's embarrassing/humiliating for Team B to slug it out for a couple of dollars and be dissed by the Estate, i.e. Team A.

Paris Jackson needs to respect who her Aunts and Uncle's are - not take a front row seat in whupping up on them via Twitter, etc.

I've gone through a similar thing with my own family - people that come here and to read what I write -

With them it was a few nickels and a dime -

Team B is made to look wicked, greedy, inept, hapless and bacteria-ridden.

So I'm now with Team B - on the side of the brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles -

Who helped put Michael Jackson on the map.

Shame on Michael Jackson - for legally endorsing and certifying this would turn into a p_____g contest.

Paris, you're young, beautiful, have a world of opportunity awaiting you - take the higher road.

Respect your Aunts and Uncles.

I *out* myself for being previously wrong about this - didn't have even data to make a call.

My bad and apologies to Randy, Jermaine, et al.

@ MJ Estate:

Who are you to turn the Aunts and Uncles of Michael Jackson - into pan-handlers?

@ nof. You're right. Easy to be young, hot and in-demand by OPRAH. Not as easy to be a bit older, a bit beaten-up by the world and by life. And an easy target by the estate and Team Katherine. Good for you saying-so, nof.

...Hmmm, well-stated usual I'm with nof...
