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.

They all should flip-flop! They were wrong to do Michael's kids like they did. Those kids were left in the dark about their grandmother, do of course they were going to be worried. Those stupid Jacksons clan didn't even think about the welfare of Michael's kids! (they lost the only parent they ever knew)

I'm VERY disappointed in JANET JACKSON! I thought out of all of the Jackson's she would be his lifeline for the children even if things weren't as they should have been between Michael and her.

Here's a shout out to those other idiots... Jermaine, RANDY, Rebbie and GLADY"S KNIGHT!

yuck to all of them!

This guy has 9 children! How irresponsible can one be!
Michael didn't have to include them in his will, for he gave them a lot in life! They lived in the House at Encino (Michael's house), his children lived there, etc. and besides gave his mother 1 million annually so she wouldn't have to work (never asked his mother what she did with the money)
What more can you give to these lazy, entitled people.!
I wonder where his mother would be if it not where for Michael; maybe at Gary , living on Social Security.

This was one many gifts Michael gave to Randy & Jermaine, i.e.,supporting their kids for 20 years:

According to the suit, Alejandra Jackson filed a paternity case against Randy Jackson in August 1989 concerning their daughter, Genevieve Jackson. She maintains he was served with the petition, but denies she did so, the complaint states. Alejandra Jackson obtained a default judgment against Randy Jackson in December 1990 with a finding that he was the girl's father and a child support order of $1,200 a month, the suit states.

Randy Jackson did not learn of the judgment until July 2008, when county child support officials tried to levy his bank account, according to the suit. Their children are Genevieve and Stephen Randall Jackson Jr. (Note: There is Donte Jackson who is listed on the internet as their son also.)

Randy has now filed legal docs trying to undo Alejandra's judgment, claiming they cut a deal in 1993 that Randy and Michael Jackson agreed to let Alejandra and her kids live in the Jackson family compound in Encino and in return he wouldn't have to pay child support.

On top of that, Randy says the Jackson family provided Alejandra with food, utilities, maids, cooks, security guards, telephones, gardeners, maintenance, use of numerous expensive cars, etc.

Randy says, in short, she's gotten way more than the $60...0k he owes her.

As much as I hate Randy and Jerm I don't think that gold digging hobag Alejandra deserves another cent.

She lived in luxury on Michael's dime for 21 years.

It's probably because Mom had to come out of hiding and found out about the lie of a mini-stroke.
She said she never had a stroke and her doc confirmed it. The doctor who said she had a ministroke and whom Jermaine claims told his mother to stay away from talking on the phone (but a family gathering of UNO was okay i guess) didn't materialize.
Jackie said he wanted to meet this doctor and suddnely the doctor story was out of the picture and replaced with Katherine simply not wanting to talk on the phone? strange

I still want to know who sent the letter to Conrad, pretending to be Katherine, and saying she was near the end of her life and in poor health. She denies it was her and it was sent when she was being held captive in the Spa
