Prince Jackson A Black Belt Won't Cover My Ass

5/28/2016 7:23 AM PDT

Prince Jackson kind of scoffed at the notion a black belt proves you're a bad ass.

We got Michael's 19-year-old son Friday leaving Panera Bread in Bev Hills, and asked the jiu-jitsu enthusiast if he had his eye on a darker color.  It seems he's saying the belt doesn't protect you ... skill does.

Martial arts aside, it's always super interesting hearing Michael's kids ... by listening to Prince, you just wouldn't know.

Joe Jackson Hospitalized With Family By His Side

5/18/2016 9:40 AM PDT

0518-joe-jackson-tmzJoe Jackson is in an L.A. hospital after his health took a turn for the worse during a routine checkup.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ Joe was scheduled for some tests with his personal doctor Friday. However, Joe became weak during the tests and struck a high fever. We're told that's when his doc admitted Joe to the hospital ... where he's been ever since.

We're told 87-year-old Joe still has a high fever, and docs can't pinpoint exactly what's wrong.

Our photog caught up with Jermaine over the weekend, and at the time he felt things were slowly improving.

Jermaine Jackson My Mom Has a Right to Michael's House

5/6/2016 3:31 PM PDT

Jermaine Jackson thinks the deed that was filed attempting to transfer the title of Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst home to Katherine was kosher, because he says that's exactly what MJ wanted.

We got Jermaine Friday at Health Nut in Calabasas, and he made it clear ... his mother and siblings have big beef with the Michael Jackson Estate.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine signed legal docs 2 weeks ago making it appear that Michael deeded the family home to Katherine and his 3 kids. Jermaine is acting like either he or his siblings might be behind it, but he never says.

Fact is ... the deed isn't valid, because the property is owned by the estate, and dead people can't transfer property.

Michael Jackson He's So Dead He Can't Give Mom the House

5/6/2016 9:52 AM PDT

506-katherine-jackson-getty-apThe estate of Michael Jackson could not be clearer -- the deed that was recorded giving Katherine Jackson ownership of the family's Encino estate is bogus to the core.

Attorney Howard Weitzman is scoffing at the deed TMZ first told you about ... filed by Katherine which gives her 25% ownership in the home, and each of MJ's 3 kids 25% as well.

Weitzman says it's laughable that the person on the deed changing the title is Michael Jackson ... who is utterly incapable of giving anything to anyone anymore. Weitzman says, "Michael's estate owns the property for the benefit of his children and Mrs. Jackson has no ownership interest."

As we reported, although Katherine signed a document attached to the deed, she may not be the mastermind, but Weitzman vows to hunt down the culprit.


Michael Jackson Someone Pulls a Fast One To Grab Michael's Home

5/6/2016 1:00 AM PDT

505-jackson-hayvenhurst-home-apSomeone secretly filed legal documents aimed at taking Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst family home away from his estate and deeding it to Katherine Jackson and MJ's kids.

TMZ obtained the deed which was filed with the L.A. County Recorder's Office. It claims to transfer the long-standing family home in Encino from Michael Jackson to Katherine, Blanket, Paris and Prince. According to the deed, each now has a 25% ownership interest in the home.


It's a weird, suspicious document, but we've verified with the notary public who was there when it was signed that Katherine herself put pen to paper at her home in Calabasas.

As for why it's weird ... it's handwritten, and the deed is not signed although an attachment bears her signature. What's even more hinky ... the person granting the deed is Michael J. Jackson, which is impossible because he's long dead. The estate of Michael Jackson owns the property. The document was signed April 21st and recorded 5 days later.

What we don't know ... is Katherine the mastermind of the ploy or did someone just get her to sign the attachment without telling her it would be filed with a quitclaim deed?

We've learned the estate reps had no idea this document had been filed. As we've been reporting for years, Katherine has been bent out of shape for years, claiming the estate has been stingy with her family.

For all sorts of reasons the attempt to transfer the property won't work, but it's evidence of a continuing conflict between the estate and Katherine.

Paris Jackson This Tatt's for You, Grandma

4/7/2016 6:49 AM PDT

0407-paris-jackson-instagram-01Paris Jackson's gonna run out of skin if she keeps getting tattoos for family members -- but she reserved a special spot for granny, Katherine Jackson.

Paris got a blue flower with Mandarin Chinese lettering "Kaiselin" inked on her left wrist. She proudly announced the tatt was "for Grandma Katherine."

The new piece looks to be adjacent to the one she just got in honor of her father.

Paris is gonna have to draw a line with Jackson family tattoos at some point. She's in trouble if she gets to Jermajesty territory. 


Paris Jackson Family Fears New BF is Hardcore Racist

4/7/2016 12:50 AM PDT

040616-michael-snoddy-instagram-03Paris Jackson is dating a racist ... at least that's what some members of her family fear.

Members of the Jackson brood tell us ... Michael Snoddy's arm tattoo proudly displaying the Confederate flag is highly offensive and ironic, since Paris' dad was black.

Snoddy, a drummer with the band Street Drum Corps, is a little out of step, as some Southern states are removing vestiges of Confederate symbols from public view.

Paris, who's been dating Snoddy for a few weeks, doesn't seem to mind, but her family thinks the fact that his tat was strategically placed for all to see is an omen about his feelings toward African Americans.

We spoke with Snoddy, who scoffed at the claims and said, "I wouldn't be dating a black girl if I were a racist."

That answer might not fly with the Jacksons, so we're guessing his other defense could be he's a fan of Pantera's album, "Cowboys From Hell." Notice the "CFH" on the tat. That group used the flag on its merchandising and posters, although some members have expressed regret.


Jermaine Jackson MJ Would Have Been Team Hillary

4/1/2016 6:45 AM PDT

Jermaine Jackson says if Michael Jackson were alive -- there's no doubt he'd be voting for Hillary Clinton ... despite Donald Trump recently bragging about his friendship with MJ.

The 4th Jackson brother was at LAX when he also said what MJ would have thought about Trump's comments regarding his botched plastic surgery.

For the record, MJ really was friends with Trump and the Clintons -- but JJ's sure which one would get his vote.


Michael Jackson Estate Goes After Popcorn Website ... You're Not the King of Pop!

2/26/2016 9:05 AM PST

0226-michael-jackson-king-of-pop-getty-01Nobody calls popcorn "pop" ... is the basis of a lawsuit the Michael Jackson estate has filed against a website using MJ's name to hawk popcorn.

MJ's estate has set its sights on ... a website that popped up in 2012 after buying the domain name of a former Michael Jackson fan website. 

The estate claims the site tried to defend its use of the popular MJ moniker by saying the word "pop" is a "nickname for popcorn products." The estate says that's BS because "pop" is only a nickname for soda ... in certain parts of the country. 

Team MJ is suing to get the site shut down, plus damages. Shoulda gone for a couple tins of Chocolate Dreams Popcorn too. Yummm ... 


Jermaine Jackson to Trump Sit Down! You're No Friend of MJ

2/19/2016 12:31 PM PST

0219-jermaine-jackson-michael-jackson-donald-trump-TMZ-GETTY-01Donald Trump just got called out for claiming to be friends with Michael Jackson -- by MJ's brother, Jermaine.

Jermaine ripped Trump, saying ... "name-dropping Michael don't make you cool and won't win you votes. Especially when using botched facts."

It's a known fact Michael and Donald were friends, but Jermaine is taking issue with Trump claiming MJ lost his confidence because of "bad, bad, bad surgery."

Jermaine calls that a "BS" theory and tweeted, "Michael's confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances. Period."

Jermaine Jackson's Wife I'm No Criminal, Because He Spit On Me

1/26/2016 12:20 AM PST

0125-jeremy-jackson-halima-rashid-TMZ-GETTY-01Jermaine Jackson's wife Halima won't be criminally charged for biting her hubby in the leg, because of what he did to her ... TMZ has learned.

Our law enforcement sources say their investigation shows Jermaine and Halima were engaged in mutual combat. Specifically, they concluded he spit on her, she bit him and they fought like crazy.

In the end, cops say they couldn't decide who the aggressor was, so it's case closed.  

Halima was arrested last November for felony domestic violence, but now she's in the clear.

It appears Jermaine and Halima have reconciled. 

Michael Jackson's Cousin Let Me See Paris & Blanket

1/19/2016 12:20 AM PST

0118-paris-blanket-02Michael Jackson's cousin, Anthony James Jackson II, is so desperate to spend time with MJ's kids ... he wants the courts to order some QT with them. 

AJJ filed a request for visitation with Blanket and Paris ... who are minors and currently under the guardianship of grandma Katherine and their cousin TJ

In his docs, Anthony says he is a close family member who says he used to live with Michael and all the children. Since MJ's death, Anthony's had a rocky history with the family. Two years ago he attempted to terminate TJ and Katherine's guardianship, but got shot down in court.

This time around ... Anthony's asking the judge to grant him regularly scheduled visits.

Jermaine Jackson Is That a Bag of Oranges Or ...

12/10/2015 7:05 AM PST

1210-jermaine-jackson-akmgsiIt's usually Jermaine Jackson's bizarrely immaculate hairline that mesmerizes ... but his tight leather pants stole the show Wednesday in Calabasas.  

The Jacksons are still a BIG deal. Can you feel it?
