Katherine Jackson & MJ's Kids

Show Up for 'Unity' Tour

Despite Family Brawl

EXCLUSIVE

0728_kathering_jackson_tmz_videoDespite a public family showdown, Katherine Jackson and Michael Jackson's three kids all showed up at the Jackson Brothers' "Unity Tour" ... even though one of the members, Jermaine Jackson, is actively trying to overthrow the MJ estate.

TMZ obtained footage of Katherine arriving at the concert in Saratoga, CA last night (to a small round of applause from the crowd) where Marlon, Tito, Jackie and Jermaine are continuing their tour, despite the current family rift.

Katherine wasn't there alone ... Prince, Paris and Blanket tagged along with their grams -- who just last week was reported missing after spending a week in Arizona with other members of the Jackson clan.

During the concert, Jermaine -- who is on opposite sides of the feud than his band mate brothers -- played a whole set by himself ... singing several songs as a solo act.

We're told MJ's kids, who were watching from the crowd, didn't appear to be having that much fun.

Awkwaaaaaard.

ROLAND S. MARTIN EXCLUSIVE: Janet Jackson, Others Family Members Barred From Mom’s California Home

-

The executors of Michael Jackson’s estate have barred a number of the late singer’s siblings, including Janet Jackson, from the California home where their mother, Katherine, is raising the late singers three children.

The details of who is and isn’t allowed onto the Calabas, California is detailed in an email obtained by CNN’s Roland S. Martin.

Howard Weitzman, who represents John McClain and John Branca, sent the email Wednesday to Charles Schultz, an attorney for Mrs. Jackson.

Weitzman writes that after the drama over the last two weeks, which including allegations that Katherine Jackson had gone missing for 10 days and was unable to reach Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson, which led to her having to share guardianship of the children with another grandchild, TJ Jackson, it is necessary to bar certain family and friends from the property.

“Given the cir***stances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children, Janice Smith, or anyone else who was involved in the recent events that led to Mrs. Jackson’s separation from and inability to communicate with Michael’s children, or any agents or representatives of any of these individuals,” Weitzman wrote.

“There will be no other security or drivers allowed on the property except those employed by the Estate of Michael Jackson. Joe Jackson is precluded from entering the property. Howard Mann who is in litigation against the Estate and is working with the Jackson siblings that wrote the “letter” should also not be allowed on the premises.”

The “letter” Weitzman is referring to is the one signed by Randy, Janet, Jermaine, Rebbie and Tito Jackson, alleging that the 2002 will authorizing Branca and McClain to be the executors of estate is fraudulent. Tito later apologized for signing the letter.

“Of course, Paris, Prince and Blanket, T.J. and his brothers, Tito, Marlon, Jackie and their spouses, current security (hired by the Estate), staff (per T.J.), Meg Lodise, Michael Kane, Sandra Ribera, Parry Sanders, Trent Jackson, you (Charles Shultz) and anyone else authorized by T.J. (other than the Excluded Individuals listed above), may enter and remain on the premises,” Weitzman wrote.

Weitzman’s email does not mention Michael’s sister, LaToya, and whether she can visit the property. She has publicly called on her family to stop the infighting.

According to a Jackson family source, the estate is allowed to make such demands because it pays the monthly lease payment on the Calabas home. Katherine Jackson controls the $70,000 monthly stipend the estate allocates to each Jackson child – a total of $210,000 – any way she sees fit, including school costs and other expenses.

Katherine Jackson is currently in the process of trying to purchase the home so the estate won’t be able to dictate such terms, the source said.

Weitzman writes that if law enforcement needs to be made of the letter, Schultz, T.J. Jackson or anyone else is authorized to show it to them.

“It is imperative to the Estate that from this point forward a safe and appropriate environment be provided for Michael Jackson’s children and his mother as well,” Weitzman wrote.

I see that people are still trying to blame the kids for going public on all this and refusing to be spirited away with passports (but not cell phones) in hand. Has it occurred to you all that if the kids really wanted to do whatever they wanted unfettered by adult guardians - they would have shut up, kept a low profile, and enjoyed being left without grandma? They weren't complaining about house rules or curfews. They were worried about their grandmother and took steps just to get her back home. And their actions most likely made the s***my adults stop whatever they were doing to grandma in secret, detox her during a long car ride, and bring her home - brainwashed but still alive at least.
-
The kids don't seem to make a habit of revealing all the nuttiness in their family or else the media would be bursting with stories from them rather than just occasional sightings. This was an emergency situation. They didn't know who they could trust. Makes perfect sense that they would publicize the fact that Katherine was missing and ask for information on Twitter. Kind of a grandma Amber Alert. The adults around them weren't providing straight answers, some deliberately and others because they just didn't know and were also worried. The kids just sound frustrated with all the lies, but they've actually been rather careful and restrained in how they've expressed themselves in public. They will probably relax with TJ in charge- their father did trust him. Michael was there for TJ and his brothers when their mom was murdered over money, and TJ seems more than willing to quietly repay the favor. I doubt that money is his motivation, and he's old enough to deal with the crazy crew of aunts and uncles. Katherine's nephew Trent, who apparently filed a missing person report and fought off the Unholy Trio when they barged in and tried to take the kids who knows where (you don't need passports for Arizona), was also hired and trusted by Michael to help his mother.

Amid the Ongoing Trial, Michael Jackson Estate gives Katherine $6 Million To Pay Off South Korean Concert Suit


Michael Jackson Estate just loaned Katherine Jackson, MJ’s mother a whopping $6 million to pay off her settlement with a South Korean newspaper.


According to an order entered by the court, the Estate is giving Katherine the $6 million to help her wrap up a 17-year old lawsuit filed against her by the Segye Times. The paper originally won a $4 million judgment against Katherine and others for failing to deliver on a promised Jackson family concert -- but with interest she would owe more than $14 million.


Katherine's attorneys and the paper agreed on a settlement of $6 million -- which clearly she couldn't pay without help from the Estate. There are strings attached -- according to court docs, Katherine must repay the full amount to the Estate, plus interest, within one year.


But check this out -- she got a hell of a deal -- the interest rate is only 16%!


MRS. JACKSON BELONG TO THE ESTATE!!!!!
