Jermaine Jackson

FLIP-FLOPS

I'm Backing Off the Estate

Jermaine Jackson
-- a major ringleader in the Jackson family rebellion against the MJ Estate -- has officially defected from a family letter criticizing the Estate ... but still has "deep reservations" about the executors.

Jermaine just posted a long letter on his Twitter account, writing, "I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the Estate, and which should never have gone public."

"I still hold deep reservations about many issues involving the Estate, and I will continue to bring scrutiny and a resolute voice wherever we have cause for concern. But the way to address such matters is through the proper channels and via a private dialogue, not public conflict."

He adds, "In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive-branch."

Jermaine follows in the footsteps of his brother Tito, who withdrew his signature last week from the siblings' July 17th letter to the Estate, in which they accused the executors of failing at their job and stressing out Katherine Jackson so badly she suffered a "mini-stroke."

As of now, the signatures of Janet, Rebbie, and Randy remain on the letter.

The only issue of the state that Jermaine really has a reservation about is the one that says he doesn't get one stinking dime of his brother's money.

He looks like he's made of wax and melting in the sun.

Since he wasn't in the will..OR the will before that, it really is none of his business.
Michael didn't put them in the will and didn't want them to be guardian to his kids. That says a LOT.

It must truly suck to be the punchline for a whole family.
Granted, "Tito" takes the heat off sometimes,
but "Jermaine" is usually the punchline...

Maybe the MJEstate lawyers threatened to sue him.
Maybe he & Randy think they will pay their child support like they asked em to if they play nice

I just looked in the dictionary. His photo appears beside the definition of "putz."

After the Estate barred also your kids from calabasas home, now you change your mind about the Estate for obvious reason.

Jermaine, likes to put alot of oil or grease in his hair- what is that about? And I bet, he'd love to a hold of some of the estate money, and go on a spending spree!

Michael had difficulties with Jermaine, when he was alive, and Michael wouldn't like him, putting in his 2 cents worth now!"

Didn't Jermaine dump off his horrible kids JerMajesty and Jaafar on Katherine too, until they got ahold of a tazer and got Blanket with it?

What a shame.. He is an idiot like the rest of the money grubbers. The loss of a father is hard enough to deal with. Leave the children alone.
