Katherine Jackson

Wants Estate to Pay for TP

Not Janet's Mortgage

We have more info on Katherine Jackson's request for the Michael Jackson Estate to pay for expenses related to Janet Jackson's Las Vegas home, and it turns out toilet paper -- NOT mortgages -- is on her mind.

As we previously reported, the Estate filed documents asking the court to allow the Executors to pay Katherine for "expenses relating to .... a residence in Las Vegas."

We're told the residence is Janet Jackson's home.   Fact is ... there's no need to cover any mortgage expenses, because we're told Janet doesn't have a mortgage -- she owns the home outright, but never spends time there.  In fact, we're told she bought the home so Katherine could use it.  And, she has provided various other forms of support for Katherine over the years.  So what we reported initially -- that the Estate would pay part of the mortgage -- isn't the case.

Sources connected to Katherine now tell us, Katherine wants the money because she incurs various expenses when she spends time at Janet's property.  Our sources say the expenses include, food, cable, utilities, Internet, travel and even toilet paper.  

It's unclear why Katherine feels she's entitled to more money for things like food and toilet paper, because what she consumes and uses in Vegas she doesn't in L.A.

See people? That's why you can not believe everything you read. Refrain from making such nasty comments on things you don't know. Jackson family is just a normal family. All families are dysfunctional to a certain point and then we get together again! Simple!

Did you ever in your wildest dreams think Michael might end up looking like the most mature, sane member of this family?

Katherine needs to remember to put her wallet in her purse when she travels to Vegas and when she gets there she needs to direct the driver to a Costco, open aformentioned purse, and buy toilet paper for her and her grandchildre. Wtf?

This is obviously TMZ's way of retracting another BS story. At least they did it. I'll give them that. However, anyone who believes that Janet was denying her mother basic things like toilet paper is clearly an idiot. TMZ added that as a cheap shot because they were angry at -once again- reporting a story incorrectly and being called out on it. But this site is constantly filled with sheeple who just believe everything they see without giving an ounce of thought to common sense. And even if Janet did tell her mother to handle her own personal expenses, she gave her a furnished home that she NEVER has to pay for. She can take some of her allowance and handle the basics when she stays in LV. There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with having her do that much for herself.

Katherine is only interested in meeting HER expenses and not paying Janet...which is different from the original story posted here which might have met with the wrath of Janet's lawyers...
It's better to find out ALL of the FACTS before posting a story, or just give basic facts known, say that it is a story in progress, and don't make assumptions.

This old witch will be asking for toilet paper expenses for every city in America if she thinks the estate will fork over the money. She is determined to get the estate to support those worthless kids and husband of hers, because that is where the money is really going.

"It's unclear why Katherine feels she's entitled to more money..."

It's clear to me: greed.

How long does MJ have to pay for his parents' upkeep? He settled his account with them a long time ago, IMO.
