Michael Jackson's Estate Updates

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine has been granted temporary custody of Michael 3 children.  Katherine also filed papers to a Superior Court judge today to name her administrator of her late son's estate so she can ensure the King of Pop's three children are its beneficiaries.  Michael's will has also surfaced, even though the courts believed there wasn't a valid one available at the time of Katherine's petition for custody as the Jacksons filed saying there was no valid will on record. Supposedly there is a lot of legal drama as Londell McMillan has been working with Michael and the family for years as the legal representation.  They had no will for Michael.  But Michael allegedly re-hired his old lawyer John Branca 3 weeks ago.  Apparently John is the one with the will and the family has never seen or heard of it.  John is supposed to be filing it with the court today. Joe Jackson and Michael's lawyer Londell McMillan confirmed yesterday that the family indeed ordered a second autopsy.  And these pics of Michael's last rehearsal at the Staples Center 2 days before he died have surfaced:

He seemed to be in good spirits according to the dancers and crew there.  The photographer Kevin Mazur who took the shots says:
"I am devastated by the sudden loss of 'The King of Pop,' who I have photographed numerous times since the Victory Tour in the '80s. When he hit the stage at rehearsal, I was thrilled that the magical Michael Jackson was BACK!!! I felt the same adrenaline rush as when I photographed him the first time moonwalking. I was so looking forward to shooting the O2 Arena performances with the amazing production that Kenny Ortega and AEG put together with Michael for his fans."
Still so sad.

Binky: @ Fo Sho I

Binky: @ Fo Sho I understand what you are saying about the music industry and it being white own but white people may not condone domestic violence but they condone everything else from drug use, alcohol abuse, satanic music, sex tapes and everything else so they have no room to talk about how black people feels about black celebrities when their celebrities are just as shady and worst. Yes Chris Brown did tarnish his image but how many others tarnish their image and turned it into success and got a “second chance” but I guess if your not white your not deserving of that chance in the media, it is not like he got away with it he faced his sentence and punishment. But the Chris Brown debate can be save for another day, I’ am over the mess at the BET awards and everything else I must say that although I think CB was wrong to beat Rihanna and I will never support him again, the white media are being two faced, Sean Penn a well known and respected actor in Hollywood is known to have beaten up Madonna when he dated her but up to this day he still get recognition for his movies etc, CB is a black guy who beat his black girl and somehow the treatment of Sean Penn and CB is totally different, I say if you are against domestic abuse then be against it period!!

BET is not the only black

BET is not the only black network (Thank God), TV One on Friday repeated the 30th anniversary concert from 2001, taped at Madison Square Garden and will repeat it this Thursday at 8 and 11 pm, July 2nd in HD, with Marc Anthony, Destiny's Child, Missy Elliott, Gloria Estefan, Nelly Furtado, Whitney Houston, James Ingram, Al Jarreau, Gladys Knight, Liza Minnelli, Monica, Aaron Carter, 'N Sync, 98 Degrees, Gloria Gaynor, Usher, Billy Gilman, Shaggy, Luther Vandross, Dionne Warwick, Mya, Lil' Romeo, Jill Scott, Elizabeth Taylor, Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Tucker on one stage. This will make up for that unholy mess showed on BET on Sunday night. What an insulting display of egos.

I am willing to bet money

I am willing to bet money that when MTV pays tribute to MJ, it will outshine BET. Sad but true. I personally believe that if you cant do something right then you shouldnt do it at all. The awards show last night made that clear. I also would like to see Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake,Usher, and Ginuine do a collaboration. You can tell that they were all heavily influenced by MJ. Also, Mariah Carey should have sung "Ill Be There."

No matter how much the awards

No matter how much the awards stunk last night, the celebs are still gonna get bread whether we like it or not. I hope this estates situation turns out fine because whenever money is involved, things are bound get ugly. After all, it is the root of all evil.

That BET show was DREADFUL!

That BET show was DREADFUL! Truly and utterly awful. I felt like puking during that "Baby Boy" skit. I never watch this so-called award show, but I watched this year to see how they would honor Michael Jackson. This show was a verbal and emotional assault on my heart and senses. Debra Lee needs to step down.

Actually I think that Beyonce and Katherine are alike. Not much spine. Katherine being controlled by Joe and Beyonce being controlled by JayZ and her daddy. Shameful...

I am so pissed. First that I

I am so pissed. First that I looked at that wack ass show that was suppose to be a tribute. NeYo was the only performer last night that gave Michael props through talent. BET (which is owned by Viacom) has no respect for black folk and never has. They were the one network that promoted the negativity in the rap videos. They never played Michael Jackson anything. Beyonce needs to get a spine and be a grown ass woman, that makes her own decisions..not allowing her husband and father to decide everything for her. Though I have been a steadfast fan because of her talent, I think I have to step back. JayZ will NEVER get another cent from me. Perfect example that money provides no CLASS. Glass houses need to be careful cause those auto tones may f*ck you up. I personally can not wait to support Chris Brown in whatever his next project is..and there will be another project. He stood up and accept responsibility for his actions..even though I remain suspect on the entire situation..we will never know..Oprah needs to get busy and interview. RIP Michael and if your death provides us nothing else its shining a bright light on greed and should let all us know to keep our friends close and our enemies closer...Joe Jackson should rot in hell.

The strange thing about this

The strange thing about this is that everybody involved with the rehersals seemed to think things were going well and MJ was at the top of his game. An Industry Exec who was at Wednesday's rehersals said that MJ was out dancing people half his age. But the media keeps saying he was sickly. However, he doesnt appear sickly in these rehersal pics. Something just doesnt add up here. Im just saying...

BET aka THE 2009 MINSTREL

BET aka THE 2009 MINSTREL SHOW: Jawn Murray just confirmed tht Beyonce turned into a diva a refused to change the MJ song she wanted to sing as a tribute to him. He said she wanted to sing I’ll be there but the BET execs wanted her to sing something upbeat because she was to open the show. She refused to change her song and so she only performed Ave Maria… in a swimsuit no less.Also Jawn Murray said that Chris Brown was supposed to perform but Jay-Z threw a monkey in that. He said he would pull out of the show if Chris Brown performed.I guess that is why Beyonce said she did not know if he would be performing.Reply to this THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for putting them on blast cause I knew this all along. It's not just Bey's dad that's a jerk.. she's one too! Oh yeah.. and what better way to celebrate being a jerk... she married one too!!

Only a new will can revoke an

Only a new will can revoke an old will that was properly executed. So even if Michael made the will 10 or 15 or 20 years ago and left it with the attorney - if he did not make a new will that 20 year old will is still MJ's last valid will. So Joe and Katherine is lying when they said he died without a will even if the will is from a long time ago. It would just be better for them if they could claim he died without a will because thay way they get everything for sure.
Fo' Sho's picture

jennielove: @ fo sho: do

jennielove: @ fo sho: do some further research. The will is in the hands of a former attorney. No, his parents aren’t saints and neither are mine, but that does not negate that his mother and father loved him and will do what is right for Michael’s children. So, to keep dishing negative comments about his parents, when they just lost their son is disrespectable and just plain tacky! Most attorneys are the ones who keep the clients will in their offices for safekeeping nothig strange about that. Joe and Katherne filed probate that MJ dies intestate - without a will, when clearly he did not. Most people make a will and leave it at that unless they decide to change it. So even if the will was made ten years ago and left with the attorney for safe keeping it is still a alid will unless a new will was made to replace it. Joe and Katherine would likely have destroyed the will if they had found it so it was probably a good thing that MJ's former attorney (who he allegedly re-hired two weeks ago anyway)had the will for safekeeping

A good example of how black and YT don't see some things the same - look at what happened to that ball player who was in that dog fighting scandal. Black people were like whatever they just dogs, let it go already - but YT people crucified him dog or not. YT think woman beaters and child molesters and abusers are the lowest and they would forgive drug use or gun possession quicker than woman beating or child molestation. (And yes, I know some white men do abuse women and molest children and the YT woman beaters and child molesters get looked on as the lowest form of life by other YT's too - if you live or work among them it's easy to see how they react to ceratin things)

Whats up with MJ parents he

Whats up with MJ parents he aint even buried yet! Those pics of MJ make me so sad I was looking foreward to seeing MJ in London RIP And regarding rihanna and jay-z they can both go to hell-the awards wasn't about them it was about MJ how self absorbed they are to stop chris brown from performing a tribute. I was never much a fan of these two and now I will boycot the only reason they have a career is because of MJ but they won't even allow a proper tribute for him, just selfish both of you put together will not sell $750 million albums so go to hell!

putting it out there: And

putting it out there: And Jay Z is perfect? Let’s see, he has a child in Trinidad he’s denying (yet bought the woman and house and paid her to be quiet), there is video footage of him punching a woman in the face, oh yeah, let’s not forget he was one the biggest kingpin’s in the tri state area. You’ve got to be kidding me!!! People forget that this man has a checkered past as well. And if it weren’t for Beyonce’ he wouldn’t have the fame he has now.Shame on BET for not allowing someone honor Michael because camel face said he would boycott. WOW!!! What tribute did he actually do to Michael anyway. I think it was all just propaganda to garner ratings for BET because their ratings have dropped and most of us who have some decency don’t watch this crap.People need to be careful about playing God and passing judgement. God said that “HE will make your enemies your foot stool.” Jay Z and BET better watch out cause God has a way of fixing things.All they did was garner more press for Chris Brown with the number of people who know how talented that boy is (regardless of his personal life). People are persecuting him just like they did Mike. Oh yeah, BET hasn’t played Mike’s stuff in YEARS. Now you want to honor him? Please, you all didn’t do anything but do Chris Brown a favor because now HE knows he still has a strong backing and people will still support him. Hopefully he’ll get to perform on a real tribute and garner more press. Jay and Bey have gotten completely out of hand. They seem to think that the world revolves around them...well at least at BET it does. IMO, Beyonce's 'tribute' last night was completely self serving. Singing Ave Maria in a tu-tu and wedding veil was just crazy and in no way seemed in memorial of MJ. And Jay-Z, don't get me wrong, love the song, it just did not have a place last night. For BET to pick him doing that song over CB doing what I am sure would have been an amazing tribute to the dancer MJ was was just as foolish as Bey and the tu-tu song. We as a people need to get better. That whole event last night was coonish. Wayne and his crew with what looked like pre-teens on stage?! sigh. And Drake...you will always be Jimmmy from DeGrassi. Maxwell and Ne-yo saved the night for me. Tiny and Toya? What in the baby mama hell? My people, My people.

Black people don’t expect much from their celebrities and forgive them too easily but white america does not condone woman beating so white people who are ultimately still the ones with the money in the record industry will be less forgiving than us negroes who will defend a celebrity NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO.

It hurts to know these are the last pictures of MJ I honestly shed a few tears when I looked at them, I do hope they recorded the rehearsal so we can see him one work his magic for the last time. On the other hand f**k Chris Brown man these moments aren't about him it's about remembering a legend I would have liked to see Usher or Ginuwine do a dance performance but they didn't so oh well. You people are crazy man so stuck on Chris Brown it's ridiculous. A LEGEND passed away his career his done Chris Brown on the other hand has his whole life to make up for hin temporay career pause damn

They will never be MJ status because they classless, insecure, self righteous a$$holes!!! You never heard of MJ bashing, or hating on another performer. Sad to say, but seems like all of the true ICONS are leaving us! I agree. What kills me is the way they treating C.B is exactly what they did to MJ and even his own communities shunned him although those that know him knows he wouldnt do something like that or ever hurt a child. They let woman beaters, drug dealers crack smokers all pay tribute to MJ but Chris who would have gave the most fitting tribute to him wasnt allowed and is being bashed by probably thre same media and people who did that to Michael. Who the F does Jay and B think they are. B didnt even have the decency to wear proper clothes and instead wore the exact same outfit she does when preforming that song on all her concert dates. What the hell is that.. No respect im so angry

The show was to honor MJ not

The show was to honor MJ not make people pay for their sins. If BET is so concerned about 'felons' performing then they wouldn't have any performers--90% of those on stage last night have had some legal issues. Let's not forget the man they were honoring last night, Michael Jackson himself was accused of a more horrible crime then chris brown. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. the show was not about Jay Z, Rihanna or anybodies prior sins; it was about honoring MJ and nobody, NOBODY could have done that better then Chris Brown. BET should be ashamed of themselves and will lose many viewers over their decision--so much for the black community supporting their own. Chris Brown has owned up to his mistake. My God, they gave T.I. an award and he is in Federal Prison and what's up with Lil Wayne and the other 'felons' having those young girls on stage while singing "I wish I could fuc* every girl in the world?" BET is full of hypocrites!!!

Binky: I hope this doesn’t

Binky: I hope this doesn’t drag on and the fight doesn’t get over the estate, let’s just end it we need no more negativity for the family or Michael image. I hope the kids stay in the family and that Katherine or one of the bros and sisters raise them and that they leave money for them. It is still so tragic and sad about Michael Jackson I hope someone give him a proper dedication and show focusing on him alone, he shouldn’t have to share the spotlight. I wish they a live rehearsal so his fans can see his magic one more time or for some of us the very first time. Oh you think this is NOT gonna get ugly? Look how ugly James Brown's & Barry White's situation got and neither one of them COMBINED didn't have tenth of the amount of money & earning potential that Michael has! Wait till tomorrow when the Billboard Chart comes out & see if Michael's album/CD doesn't have the top spot! Possibly even the 1st, 2nd & 3rd spot! We ain't even seen how ugly this can get yet.

jennielove: You are an

jennielove: You are an idiot to post something like this! A legend has been silenced and you are mess about his parents wanting his money. If anybody deserves to take control of his estate, it would be his parents for the benefit of Michael’s children and their grandchildren, and even the rest of his family, including his parents. MJ's parents are NO saints. Joe IS probably happy that MJ passed before he did so he can reap the money from MJ's estate because we know MJ like Elvis will probably make more dead for his estate than he had made alive. And where was Katherine when Joe was beating the shit out of her son. A mother's job is to potect her child and Katherine DIDN'T. FUTHERMORE, MJ is NOT EVEN BURIED YET and already they are filing legal documents about how MJ did not have a will. That's how much his parents loved him?

ppl make me sick: @ its ova

ppl make me sick: @ its ova for Chris Brown…The show was to honor MJ not make people pay for their sins. If BET is so concerned about ‘felons’ performing then they wouldn’t have any performers–90% of those on stage last night have had some legal issues. Let’s not forget the man they were honoring last night, Michael Jackson himself was accused of a more horrible crime then chris brown. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. the show was not about Jay Z, Rihanna or anybodies prior sins; it was about honoring MJ and nobody, NOBODY could have done that better then Chris Brown. BET should be ashamed of themselves and will lose many viewers over their decision–so much for the black community supporting their own. Chris Brown has owned up to his mistake. My God, they gave T.I. an award and he is in Federal Prison and what’s up with Lil Wayne and the other ‘felons’ having those young girls on stage while singing “I wish I could fuc* every girl in the world?” BET is full of hypocrites!!!reply Submitted by lt (not verified) on June 29, 2009 - 3:53pm. I RE-READ HIS/HER COMMENT AND THE PERSON DID NOT MENTION BET.

BET aka THE 2009 MINSTREL

BET aka THE 2009 MINSTREL SHOW: Jawn Murray just confirmed tht Beyonce turned into a diva a refused to change the MJ song she wanted to sing as a tribute to him. He said she wanted to sing I’ll be there but the BET execs wanted her to sing something upbeat because she was to open the show. She refused to change her song and so she only performed Ave Maria… in a swimsuit no less.Also Jawn Murray said that Chris Brown was supposed to perform but Jay-Z threw a monkey wrench in that. He said he would pull out of the show if Chris Brown performed.I guess that is why Beyonce said she did not know if he would be performing.Reply to this Novacaine: Thanks for the confirmation of what i knew to be true. They are so whack and i feel like that was a big disrespect to M.J… not even in a tribute to him could they put aside their Ego’s and attention grabing motives and let MJ have a decent tribute… If she sang a song that was MJ.. C.B. performed and Jay like he did for Obama wrote a little song on him it would have helped out alot but they couldnt. Bet they even hated the love MJ got from everywhere and decided they needed to boost themselves a bit. Their so whack and lost all my ratings and respect i once had for them Man, this is so SAD!!! But you know, you can have money, & fame in the world, & still have NO CLASS!!!! That's what separates the ICONS from everybody else, CLASS! They will never be MJ status because they classless, insecure, self righteous a$$holes!!! You never heard of MJ bashing, or hating on another performer. Sad to say, but seems like all of the true ICONS are leaving us!

I hope this doesn't drag on

I hope this doesn't drag on and the fight doesn't get over the estate, let's just end it we need no more negativity for the family or Michael image. I hope the kids stay in the family and that Katherine or one of the bros and sisters raise them and that they leave money for them. It is still so tragic and sad about Michael Jackson I hope someone give him a proper dedication and show focusing on him alone, he shouldn't have to share the spotlight. I wish they tape a live rehearsal so his fans can see his magic one more time or for some of us the very first time.

@It's Ova 4 Chris Breezy. I

@It's Ova 4 Chris Breezy. I bet you just love that. I bet you were one of the people who wished Ill on MJ (R.I.P.) when those allegations came up or when he made the settlement but now that he has passed you hoped back on the MJ band wagon. (Although those allegations werent true)...You people are losers support your people and help them instead of casting them out for mistakes and misjudgements they made. Let their music speak for them not their personal life. I bet you just Love Jay Z as well although hes a woman beater. but i guess its cool cuz the G he whooped wasnt Rih Rih.. GTFOH.. i will write MTV a nice lette too in support. aint need to wait until another tragedy happens to another one of my people to support or voice outrage on these white ppl bashing us for any little thing
