Jermaine Jackson


I'm Backing Off the Estate

breaking news

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.

mj fan forever    

He is just trying to get the money in another way after greedy unnatural mother dragged Michael's children at their stupid concert!!! As Katherine must have suggested him but Michael's children were well warned by their dad and they are smart enough to see what kind of leeches they actually are!!! And only THEM made all public by publicy attacking the Estate also hoping in the audience' support, only that their disgusting plot miserably failed!!! And this leech parasite delinquent has NO right to have any 'reservation' on the Estate on which he has absolutely NO say in!!!!

Jermaine, over and over and over again you will use any desperate tactic to get attention on yourself. This is what happens when a senior citizen just won't let go of the bitterness and jealousy he has dealt with since he was 18. It's time to move on. Perhaps a job at Chik-fil-A to help you support that family you can't afford to support will help you move on. Of course you want your name removed from this "letter". You are the literal living, walking and barely breathing definition of the word PATHETIC. It's so sad. Do us all a favor Jermaine and shut the hell up. Once your Mama goes to meet her maker you won't speak up again because you stand no chance in hell of getting a red cent. Oh what a tangled web you weave when first you practice to deceive. In other words you are a LIAR Jermaine. And a pathetic, tired and foolish one at that.

Olive branch??? Now that is funny!!!! I guess he doesn't like the feedback he's getting for his part in this whole mess. MJ's estate is just that....MJ's estate! It has NOTHING to do with his siblings.

Umm, you never once mentioned conern for Michael's children when you all thought up the scheme 3 years ago nor when they called and you wouldn't put the call through, you wouldn't even let your own brother talk to her, but you had no problem going there right along with Janet. Let's not forget that Rebbie was there with her daughter and son - so you are saing Prince, Paris and Blanket were sessing her out huh, not the other grandkids or greatgrand???. OhJermaine it's all about ME, let ME try to clear my name because MY kids can't go and see Grandma at Paris, Prince and Blanket's house, you are just trying to get your name off the list along with your kids. What makes you think PPB want to even be around y'all. Jermaine's kids miss the freebies they got by being around PPB, trips, movies, etc.. Michael's children can survie without you all, they rely upon themselves. They know all about you, Janet, Rebbie and Randy, Michael taught his children well. You just didn't know how well prepared they were for you all. As Michael Jackson Jr wrote, "Keep telling lies and I will keep telling the TRUTH." Do you want to test them!

J.J. is just pissed because his kidnap for $$$ was foiled by Paris and Prince's tweets.

He probably had to make this retraction becuz of the death threats and other crazinesses. It must have been pretty scary to be the focus of so much hate and sheer insanity, especially for Rebbie, the normal and quiet one.

"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."
Jermaine really needs a lawyer, but I guess he can't afford one. So I guess I'm gonna have to tell him:
Jermaine, ain't none of this schit yours. NONE.
This ain't "your" Estate, it ain't "The Jackson Estate," these ain't your kids, and this is NOT your money.
Therefore, it is useless for you to go flapping your stupid lips over something you will never have control of, but I can assure you, everytime you do it WILL be front page news.
