Jermaine Jackson

The Big Winner

In MJ Trial ... Maybe

10/2/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

100113_jermaine_jackson_launch_v2If Katherine Jackson wins her lawsuit against AEG ... the BIG winner isn't really Katherine or Michael's 3 kids ... more likely it's Jermaine Jackson, along with Tito, Randy and Marlon.

We got Jermaine out in Calabasas yesterday ... and we asked if Katherine provided for him in her will, but he dodged the question. 

Here's the significance.  Katherine is suing for $10 BILLION.   If the jury awards her a substantial amount of money, it would almost certainly go to her kids when she dies, and here's why --  Michael's children won't need the money for two reasons. 

First, the 3 kids are also suing, so any judgment would probably be more than enough for them to live off of.  Also, when Katherine dies, they'll pretty much get the vast fortune that has been accumulated in the MJ Estate.

The logical people who would get Katherine's money would be hubby Joe and their kids.  Katherine has been sparing in terms of what she gives Joe -- they don't live together anymore, so her kids would almost certainly be the primary beneficiaries of what she leaves behind.

As for the kids -- Janet is doing just fine, and we're told La Toya is also sitting pretty in the finance department.  So the boys would benefit the most.

The first and only place I read or heard that Mrs. Jackson was seeking $12 Billion. Anyways, who else would Mrs. J leave HER money to but, her kids.

MJ was really the talented one out of all his bros & sisters. Janet the 2nd most talented of the family. It's shameful how these greedy azzholes are still picking the bones of MJ for their slice of the pie. I hope the jury comes back with a much less settlement than 10 Billion. That is just ridic amount. MJ was a drug addict for years and this family did nothing to help him. MJ died because he was a drug addict, bottom line. No one to blame except MJ and the Dr.

Janet, start running! If your brothers won't make money off of this, they're coming for your money.

If the verdict means Jermaine (aka..Bottom Feeder) isn't going to get any money than I am more than elated. Just because Katherine still has Joe & the boys hanging around doesn't mean they will automatically divide what she has equally. I have my will where the share is far from equal. She should have cut Joe out LONG before Michael died. That old perv will purposely out live her to try to get whatever she has and then some!!

just because Jacksons lost doesn't mean the above video isn't irrelevant, despite whom is being interviewed, there is some historical content to it, well from a celebrity gossip pov

please make the video available again

Learn from this particular mess people. I totally understand why M.J. didn't leave his brothers and sisters and dad a dime. But then what ensued was the dread "Law of Unintended Consequences" What M.J. did may have made HIM feel good but it increased the stress on the mother he loved 100 fold. She filed the lawsuit for her children, not for herself or M.J.'s kids. She's their mom, she loves the wretches. Janet? She is probably panicking because without that lawsuit money, SHE is the new family goose that lays the golden eggs.
