MIchael Jackson's Family

Don't Ask

'Who's The Daddy?"

Michael Jackson
's family is pleading with the judge in their wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live to EXCLUDE any evidence of the paternity of MJ's 3 kids.

TMZ has obtained legal docs in which Katherine Jackson, Blanket, Paris and Prince argue ... it's irrelevant for a jury to hear evidence about the conception of the 3 kids. Specifically, they believe AEG has no right to delve into their biological parentage. 

The Jackson crew also wants to exclude any evidence that MJ's siblings have financial problems.  They worry AEG might try to argue that the real force behind the lawsuit is the need for cash.

And mama Jackson and the kids want the judge to bar evidence or any mention of child molestation allegations, partly because MJ was never found guilty.

A judge has yet to rule on the motions.

The family is DESPERATE to keep the identity of those kids secret. Why? Because Katherine is near the end. She is the ONLY heir, other than the kids.

If she dies, they are screwed. If for some reason the kids are found not to be LEGALLY Jackson ( who knows what MJ did, how he handled the whole thing, was the adoption formal?) then that blood sucking family stands to lose all!

That's why they kidnapped the Mom to get the lawsuit started while she is alive, because she is getting older, and the Jacksons want $$$$$$$$ which they see they stand to lose!

If the Jacksons win this lawsuit the money will be split in equal parts between Katherine and the 3 kids. This is not money initiated or generated by the MJ Estate, this is money generated by an independent lawsuit from Katherine Jackson and the kids for the death of her son/parent and their emotional distress. Sort of like a civil lawsuit. So the money would go directly to Katherine and the kids.

Lawsuits get ugly so this is no surprise..All this stuff has nothing to do with how MJ died,,
The Jackson dont want tabloid fodder included in the civil trial and surely the children parentage have nothing to do with the death of their father..
That is just to try and influence the jury against the them..
Lets see if TMZ puts up the things AEG wants left out of the suit.
AEG wants people to think the Jacksons are greedy..
I think we all can come to our own conclusions on that one..
AEG want to bring up the accusations to remind a jury of what he was accused of.
NOTICE how TMZ words it that he wasnt found guilty., implying that he was , he just wasnt convicted..
He WAS found NOT guilty 14 times because it was BS
Now , after his death , people are starting to look at those accusations and realizing they were baloney but it made good headlines for the media so they fanned the flames.
Kind of like what TMZ just did with this heading..
But now this will bring up a debate between people all over again
Harvey can be such a likeable person , but when it comes down to it, he always takes the low road , unless it is regarding a story about gay rights.
Then he gets on his soapbox..
AEG says the 2005 trial diminished his earning power but that didnt stop them from in their pursuit to get him to tour for years, because they knew it would be a huge money maker, and the way his concerts sold out, they were right.
So that kind of goes against their point there.
The other thing I notice is HARVEY is running his mouth about MJ being well known as a hard core drug addict..
Maybe Harvey should be on the witness list if he knows so much about it.
Im sure the Jacksons would love that , because it would prove AEG was pressuring a person with known addiction problems to perform tasks he coudnt handle., and they should have known that..since it was such public knowledge and Paul Gongaware had worked with MJ before..
Now why would they do that?
Why would they have a concert series weeks away and not have any of the production stuff ready?
Maybe because if MJ folded,which would have been quite possible. they would have the right to take his assets including his share in the Beatles catalog ,
That is how the contract was written up..
They also went around MJ with ticket sales and horded chunks of tickets to sell themselves at exorbitant prices and were cutting MJ out of those profits..
If MJ folded they still would have been able to keep that extra money, and only would have had to return the face value of the ticket..
people have been trying to wrestle that catalog away from him for years., and rob him blind...
Michael Jackson was human being , but he was also a brand .and a corporation and their was plenty of corporate warfare going on around him for years..
It is still happening and TMZ is used as a mouthpiece by some , to get their point of view across.
I dont know what the Jacksons motives are, I have my own suspicions , and I see no point in defending them.
But once again , all the people surrounding MJ who saw opportunity to make money off him are willing to trash him, to save their own behind., and possible make more money off him at any cost to him, his reputation or his children s well being..
story of his life..and death.

I am a HUGE MJ fan, but the kids are obviously not his biological! Yes, he is their father because he guided them, nuturde them, etc. but biologically no, which is a real shame because it would be nice if their was some DNA imprint of his child on the earth to see if they inherited any of his talent, etc.

Personally, I think that dermatologist is the father of Prince I and Paris. Who knows who is the biological father of Prince II/Blanket.

Also, I don't understand the purpose of the law suit. AEG is not responsible for MJ's death. Truth be told, MJ is largely responsible for his untimely death. Dr. Murray was the instrument on that particular day and he did not stand by his hippropocractic oath, but the truth is, it could have been any of doctor that was the instrument. On that .particular day it was Dr. Murray............But MJ had to be desperate to lay down and let ANYBODY pump him full of profolol or any anesthetic....................No way! No how! I am not trusting anybody to wake me....................unless I HAVE TO HAVE surgery and am in a hospital! MJ was desperate! The law suit is not going to bring him back............money yes, but not him! What is money compared to the person?

Do you all care about bio parents of all children? One thing sure is not one of the J3 has ever carried the last name "welfare." That is not to put down people who need welfare, but to assure you wonderful concerned tax payers, your money is safe from the J3, as should your deep concern about their parentage. Father..MJJ.
