Jackson Family Updates

Michael Jackson hasn't even been laid to rest yet and it's an all out circus with his legal reps and family.  Here's what's happening now:
  • Michael's will  has been looked at and according to the Wall Street Journal, his 2002 will says mother Katherine should indeed get custody of his kids.  The will divides his estate amongst his family members and charities, but absolutely nothing to father Joe Jackson.
  • Debbie Rowe may contest Katherine's guardianship as Debbie is believed to be the biological mother to the elder 2 children.  But media sources are now reporting that Debbie Rowe was only the surrogate.  Michael was also not the sperm donor.  The egg donor is completely unknown.  And the natural parents of his youngest child are also unknown.  This poses serious custodial problems for the children.
  • It is also being reported that Michael never legally or formally adopted his 3 children.  This could pose even more problems in the custody aspect.
  • Michael's doctor, Dr. Murray, has said he will not attend the King of Pop's funeral out of respect.  During a press conference yesterday, Al Sharpton and Joe Jackson announced that the funeral will be public and will not be at Neverland Ranch.
  • Everything is being moved out of Michael's permanent home in L.A. by the family in order to keep others from coming in and taking things.
Deaths almost always pose several issues with estate and custody so all of this was somewhat expected.  But this is still just incredibly sad.

On another note, YBF correspondents spotted Raz B backstage at the BET Awards.  And he was all over the place and donning Michael Jackson gear from head to toe.  He told us: [BET] should've asked me to do something for Mike, but it's alright." Raz said he is the number one MJ supporter and Michael always gave him good advice. He also told us, "No one knew Mike had a clothing line out, but I'm wearing [the t-shirt and jacket]..." We checked the labels and they indeed said Michael Jackson. Interesting... We asked what he's been up to, and his response: "I'm working on an album and Mike taught me about making quality music. I don't believe in rushing things like all of these other "Artists" and I'm not going to put anything out until it's right." OK Raz... And here's the video "Better On The Other Side" ft. The Game, Chris Brown, Diddy, and several others:

I don't believe in the RUMOR

I don't believe in the RUMOR that Debbie Rowe was only a surrogate. Paris looks like just like her. I still believe that those are Michael's children. I swear the oldest boy has MJ's eyes. The girl's complexion is swarthy in the latest pics. Just because one of the parents is black doesn't mean they are going to "look" black. Don't forget the mother is WHITE. I know many black people with blue eyes and straight hair. Look at the numerous stories of interracial couples having a set of twins and one looks white and the other looks black.It's biology...and especially with biracial children you'll never know how they will look. R.I.P. Michael Jackson. I hope this doesn't get too messy for his family and especially the children.

"Yeah your right Raz, BET should have asked you. Usher? Nah. Chris Brown? Nah Justin Timberlake? Nah….Let’s ask the nigga from B2K who ain’t had a song out since the days of AJ & Free on 106 & Park" I'm at work but I was ROTFL. Folks at work think I'm having issues, but that statement was funny as hell.

I am sorry for his family,

I am sorry for his family, but those kids not belong to MJ, how black man will born white children, his family have to check it out, because the mother of the kids was on Insider saying that she wanted MJ to have kids, Insider said that those father need than now, i don know what the family have to about it.

Game---> that was a nice

Game---> that was a nice tribute. heard the song the other day and he already has a video--nice job GAME. also, didn't know that about MJ and diddy helping to try and squash the beef between 50 and game....learn something new every day. yes,, 12 ppl killin themselves over anybody is a damned fool. i can believe that debbie just carried the kids cause she walked away waaaay to easy, money or not...cause the first time she heard MJ was takin to the hopsital, she shoulda been on the next thing movin....and she shooo wasn't! and 2 raz-b---> u get the MJ Thriller laugh at the end of the song/video....aint no way in hale!

Why is everyone keep harping

Why is everyone keep harping on that "it is not Michael's biological children", "he is not the true father", or what ever else the media is trying to come up with? Genetics alone doesn't make you a father, he raise those kids and love them as his own and that is all that matters and the kids loved him and the Jackson family so it is only fitting that they stay with them. I can't picture a judge just up rooting three kids to biological parents they have no ties too who are really strangers to them. So the media outlet needs to kill that noise with Debbie Rowe and the other mother and fathers stuff, ASAP! Joe shouldn't get anything, and I' am leave my opinions right there. Raz B...really Boo? Okay, I think your right about not putting crap out there but yeah oooookay, it has been a minute since we saw you.

It's going to be interesting

It's going to be interesting to see what happens with the kids. But if those women were just paid surrogates and not biological mothers...well..., anyways I for one am glad Joe Jackson did not get anything and I hope his record company never amounts to anything either. RIP MJ, parents don't understand how they can mess up their kids life by ruining their childhood.

nika1206: Its sad that you

nika1206: Its sad that you have to deal with the death of a and then deal with the legal woes of it too. It’s too much for someone to deal with. This is the only reason why I say someone like Joe is necessary to have in a family. Only Joe would have the mindset to rush to the house Michael was renting & gather up all of Michael's belongings before the vultures get it because Joe is a vulture too, so he knows how vultures think. Poor Katherine probably still in bed with the lights off & the curtains drawn cuz she is in grief but good ole Con Artist/Piranha/Leeches Joe is out there planning & calculating. RIP Michael, it's a damn shame but Thank God you can't see this mess!

ilovemylife09: @ OK Kanye!

ilovemylife09: @ OK Kanye! That made me sick to my stomach! I never doubted Mike from the jump. It was just some money hungry YT ppl trying to bring humiliation to MJ. But I bet you a million damn dollars not one network will say NOTHING about it. I used to watch CNN all the time but now I can’t. They would rather bring up all of the negative rather than the positive. SMH. I know!!! I started crying when I heard that because I think of all the ridicule and persecution he went through with the media and even family memeber....!!!! I always knew it was a lie! He was a child trappd in a mans body! He just wanted to live a life he never had and this family (and the others ones from 03) saw that and exploited that!!! I stay glued to certain shows on CNN.. like Anderson Cooper! I like his show and how he is covering this tragedy

ishouldbeworkinginstead:

ishouldbeworkinginstead: Sorry, but the paternity test has already proven that he in fact was not the biological father of those kids. But I agree Katherine should get the children, but they do have to do what is in the best interest of the children, which requires possibly looking to their biological parents and the fact that Katherine is 79 years old. I hope they dont go SARCHING for thes children "biological" family.... they have no relationhip with them! If Katherine cannot take care of them (I think she can) maybe Jermaine or Janet (since those were the two he as closest to) should get custody!! Sending them with Debbie row and whoever else would serve as a hostile experience for those children, they need to be with family and that is the Jackson family and no one else! Debbie Row abandodned those kids for money!! She shouldnt have anything to do with the say so of those kids

I definitely agree the kids

I definitely agree the kids should go to Katherine, but I have a feeling the courts are going to try and say Katherine is too old. If that's the case the children should be passed along to the next, most sane, family member. --Hint Hint-- Not Toya's crazy ass. Seriously, if the Debra Rowe gets custody of the kids she should not get any money for support. At least let Katherine have oversight of the kids' trust fund. I don't trust Debra. Okay @ Game being in a tub of water fully clothed. -_- Haha @ Mariah. Go girl.

Dude comes out after he died to say his father made him say all of that and that Michael never touched him. He needs to give back that $22 million. I’m sorry to say this but I’m so glad Michael is gone and in a better place. He doesn’t have to endure pain and suffering anymore. RIP Michael I just said that a little before you postd!!! LOL I thought I was the only one who saw that! I hop criminal actions ar brought up against them

As sad as it is, I think it was just his time and for me it makes me feel better in looking at it from a positive perspective. At least he left on a note knowing that his fans still loved him (evidence is his sold out concerts), he was a great dad to three beautiful children (which is what he'd sincerely wanted), and he has been relieved from the public scrutiny and his soul can rest at peace. He left on top of his game.

Good for Joe that bastard! I

Good for Joe that bastard! I was watching Mike's interview with that reporter last night (around the scandal) and Mike was talking about how Joe used to beat them. I just cried and cried. Micheal was sooooo small (and a beautiful big eyed child) and he used to beat all of them with whatever he could find. Joe Jackson is and will always be a sick f*** to me and Katherine just as bad for letting it happen! Ain't nothing wrong with spankings but ass whippins? With cords, belts, etc.? Not even the father of my future children can strike our kids. He gon' get a frying pan right upside his head.

And have you heard about the

And have you heard about the first boy in 1993 who claimed Micheal molested him has come forth and finally admitted it was all a lie!!! I never believed it from the beginning but this truly get a WTF????!!! MJ settled the case for 22 million and this boy, his father, MJ, and many of his fans knew it wasnt true!! Why wait until after this man is dead to finally admit it to the public!!! They put him through hell and I can only keep praying for Michael and his family!! Tasha why didnt you put that up?!
