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."

The extent of what Michael had to endure, even from some of his family, is unbelievable. It seems like they loved and needed his wealth and fame more than him. It’s as if they envied him, and tried, and still do, to take personal advantage of his success, something they’d never achieve on their own, including in the old days, without MJ’s extraordinary talent, hard work and personality. With their constant pestering, they must’ve been among those who made Michael's life to an everlasting struggle to cope with all the pressure and emotional stress.
It’s obvious why Michael didn’t want his father and siblings to get any of his money. Some family members obviously don’t respect his decision, and have now made their mother and MJ’s kids their new target. They’re not entitled to anything! They should finally have the decency to start working for their money! ANY work, because with limited talent, and no education, they can’t expect anything glamorous or high profile. They can’t expect that, just because they’re Michael Jackson’s brothers. With their behavior, they’re ruining their reputation and respect. They should really rethink their behavior and values of life.

What I don't get is Janet's involvement in this. She seemed to have the savy, up unyil now, to stay out of it. She was probably touring and didn't want the negative publicity. But why is she getting in on this at this time? It doesn't make any sense. I can't believe she could be influenced by this GERMaine slug.

Paris and her brothers better be strong people once the mother dies cuz these vultures won't let up. I wonder if they can get permanent restraining orders on the lot of them!!

The lettr was I can hazard a gues written by Taaj Malik a.k.a The wife to a dead Jackson, mother of none, who married him in death. She dresses like Latoya and claims to be waging a war with the Estate. She probably got promised a cut if she got involved! Why dont the Jacksons just grow up and realise that their name no longer open doors anymore! Smell the coffee please!
Rest in Peace MJ.

So sad, so sad, it appears obvious why MJ stayed far away from his family then when he returns he get mysteriously killed. They say $$$$$ is the root of all evil.

"...the Estate has grossed nearly half a billion dollars, wiping out MJ's massive debt..."

That's exactly why the freeloaders think the Estate is failing. I'm sure in their opinion that money should have lined the family's pockets, and the creditors should have been happy to wait and get the money trickling in after the huge sales boost from MJ's death subsides.

Why do the Jacksons keep ventilating these kind of issues in the public media? It has no substance and is of no interest for anyone. It's just gossip, and only throws a negative image on their family.
Is this why Paris tweeted family matters over the internet? Because this is the kind of examples she lives?!? I mean, I LOVE Michael Jackson and I LOVE the Jacksons with a passion. They are my favorite family in America! But, they are the uncles, the grown ups. They should give those kids a better example! I don't see how ventilating internal legal issues is going to help your case. The professional way is to resolve this matter privately, in a lawyer's office with all the parties concerned!

The best thing about an Irrevocable Trust is that the legal structure is set in stone and once the trust has been executed there are "NO" changes that even courts will overturn. Michael Jackson purposely left them all financially high and dry except his mother for his own reasons. Unfortunately he didn't foresee what his death would mean for his children's future,because after his mother is deceased his daughter will cling to her Biological mother, the oldest son will stray off and poor little Blanket will be lost. You can't create children in Petri dishes,leave them all your millions and expect money hungry siblings to embrace them for any reason other than the MONEY they are attached to!
