OFFICIAL STATEMENT From Mrs. Katherine Jackson

Michael Jackson's mother and estate executor Katherine Jackson has just issued an official statement through her lawyer Londell McMillan concerning everything that's been going on with Michael's estate. Here it is in full:
Mrs. Jackson continues to serve as her son's most trusted and loyal advocate even in death. In an effort to gain more facts concerning a suspicious circle of relationships, unnotarized will and an undisclosed trust, both drafted in 2002, which grant the executors and trustees thereunder very broad powers, Mrs Jackson has sought formal discovery of the temporary special administrators of her son's estate. The Court has made clear that it will consider Mrs. Jackson's demand for expedited discovery, and all other serious issues relating to the estate, on August 3rd. We are confident that at that time the court will allow Mrs Jackson full discovery. To be clear, neither Mrs. Jackson nor her representatives seek to re-write her son's will. Her concerns are and remain the welfare of her son's surviving children, the preservation of his legacy and the protection of his estate. Unfortunately, and contrary to their public statements, lawyers for John Branca and John McClain have either denied Mrs. Jackson access to critical information or insisted on such onerous and unreasonable restrictions on her access to and use of such information as to be tantamount to an outright refusal of certain agreements, such as the AEG agreement . The contract in question is of great potential significance to the estate, and the matters currently before the Probate Court, and yet the confidentiality terms presented to Mrs. Jackson by the temporary special administrators and AEG would have required her to accept greater confidentiality obligations than the temporary special administrators and greater than what her son agreed. This was unacceptable. Such unreasonable demands, coupled with the special administrators' apparent concern for protecting AEG at the expense of Mrs. Jackson raise serious concerns. Mrs. Jackson is looking for transparency in terms of the administration of her son's estate. Because this transparency has not been forthcoming, she was forced to resort to making formal discovery requests. Such measures will not be necessary if Mrs. Jackson is appointed a co-executor of the estate.‬ She was the only person who served as a trustee and/or co-manager of Michael's business interests at the time of his death and over the past four years. The will expressly allows for an appointment of the vacated third member. No one should deny Mrs Jackson the right to help preserve and administer Michael's legacy especially those whom had almost no contact with Michael for numerous years prior to his death.
I really just want Michael to be able to rest in peace soon...

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

YBF Get your facts straight.

YBF Get your facts straight. Katherine Jackson is NOT the executor of Michael Jackson's estate. MJ named John Branca and John McClain the executors of his estate in his will. Come on people, do we really think Mrs. Jackson can run a multi-million dollar entertainment business. I am sure her greedy husband and children are putting her up to this.

what gets me is the fact that

what gets me is the fact that you and your husband have gone through some very hard times to raise nine childrens, and all of them has talent, and michael was not always on medicine and in pain he was on top of the world at the peak of his life when he got burned and his brothers was with him when it happen and to think that he turned around and gave the whole 1.5 million dollars to a hospital there in california and to think of ithis memorial does not need to be in california , he had a hard time in that state and was treated like crap by greedy people who framed him and lied through their teeth to get money from michael and people knew that he was a good man and they took HIS KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS AND THEY USED HIM AND THEY HELPED TO KEEP THE FAMILY SHUT OUT OF HIS LIFE SO THAT THEY COULD CONTROL HIM AND WITH HIM BEING NOT WELL HE DIDN'T KNOW IF HE WAS GOING OR COMING, AND THEY USED HIM UP.

and mrs jackson if michael

and mrs jackson if michael had been one of my sons i would not care what was in a will that appeared from 2002 i would raise sands until the cows come home and it would end up taking a act of congress are the supreme courts to keep me away from doing all that i could do to protect my sons legacy, and my grands.and to hell with what anybody else is talking about, i am so sick and tired of all of the negative mess thats out there but if the lawyers can make your family look like the greedt ones then they are home free and to hell with them and their sceeming, what in the hell are all of them after, with their greedy selfs and if they ment you and your family well then they would share with you and your family whats what, they has kabel mr. jackson as a bad person and michael credits his dad for all of his success in the industry and i don't give a rats behind what mr. jackson did that was his son and people all know that this TIME OUT MESS DOES NOT WORK FOR CHILDREN ALL OF THE TIME, we had to be put in line when i was growing up,m and if my mom was still living they would lock her up for the whippings that we all got and if there was more parents like you and mr jackson then there would not be so many people young people locked up and on death row.the system is screwed all the way up but they are happy that they have mr. jackson at arm length, and now they think that the people in charge can spent your sons money how ever that they want to.

and for the sake of me i can

and for the sake of me i can not believe that the judge would not give you and your grands childrens access to michaels personal possession these people has tried to tie that will up so tight so that the jackson family will just shut up and go away, you should have a lot of say about that will or fight to the last notch these people are trying to say that your son was the goose who laid the golden egg for them, and their families, and there should be transparency, and that do not sound right when you have to force them to do something that was your son.

his mom has every right to

his mom has every right to stay up with these lawyers, she is mj mother for god sake, and with mj on so much medicine etc. whos to say that he was in his right mind when the will was drawn up, you go mrs jackson you are the one who carried that baby for nine months and don't sit idlely by and let them pull no wool over your eyes, you stay right with them, and hire more lawyers to help , if you needs to theres a lot at state here, and people are all out to try and get their pockets and bank account tight , and the first thing that the the executors did was hire them a lawyer, so you will need a team of lawyers to handle all aspects, the estate, the children, for yourself, etc.

I understand what Katherine

I understand what Katherine wants to do, but all of this legal matters and press is getting out of hand. I truly do wish Michael can rest in peace and that his legacy do(no WILL) live on. As long as the kids are taken care of and loved all this stuff doesn't matter. I think they can find a proper situation if they looked at the situation at hand and not worry about the what ifs, ands, and buts about M.J's death and the other little details that shouldn't involved the press.

I remember her lawyer used to

I remember her lawyer used to be Prince's lawyer. I did not like him then. I think it something shady about him. When I saw him on the Today Show he really came off sounding dumb. He kept saying I can't answer that,then why are you on the show. Non of this should be public what is coming down too is money. The Mother keeps saying Michael paid for everything. You have other children can't they pay for something.

All Mrs. Jackson wants to be

All Mrs. Jackson wants to be able to do is make sure her grandkids are provided for and to make sure her sons legacy lives on. Just like Priscilla did Elvis.

I agree with katherine. She

I agree with katherine. She was the one Mj trusted the most. Like she said she wasn't just a Mother , she was involved in his business affairs as well. For those of u who followed Mike trail in 2005, John Branca was exposed during the trail. Something about the catelouge and Sony. he was doing Shady business behind MJ's back and then he was fired soon after. Go fing transcripts u will see it. Katherine was the one Mj trusted. All she is asking is to be more involved to have a seat. Whats wrong with that. What r they hiding. John Branca was rehired 3 weeks before Mike died. Katherine has ALWAYS been there.

Queen Bee: You are right on

Queen Bee: You are right on point in every respect, however, as a 40% stakeholder and guardian of three children, Mrs Jackson. should be privy to a review of all contracts - that is what she appears to be asking for. She should fight for this right and more than likely, she will win.

No solace in life...and they

No solace in life...and they can't even give him that in death. truly sad...his children cannot even begin the healing process b/c every day is some new drama for them. the media's lack of consideration and sympathy for those children is really pissing me off.
So Mean ***CHECK OUT MY BLOG***'s picture

I have a feeling that this is

I have a feeling that this is not about what Katherine Jackson wants. The attorneys around Mrs. J are running their own agenda and she is just going along with it. Under CA law, the will does not need to be notarized just witnessed by two people which it was. To me the will is valid because he left pretty much everything to his kids and mother. That makes sense and it is totally reasonable. On the one hand, they are not challenging the validity of the will but on the other hand, they do not want to abide by the will in terms of who should be the executor. They can't have it both ways. If Michael wanted his mother to be the executor he would have put her name there but instead he wanted her to look after his children. Mrs. Jackson should focus her entire attention on these children and let those two guys who are well respected in the entertainment industry manage the estate with court approval and oversight. Furthermore, I think it is a good idea that a non-family is controlling the money. They are not emptionally involved and can be objective.

Well, I'm sure everyone

Well, I'm sure everyone around him did not have his best interest at heart and the family knows that...they do want to make sure the children don't get the short end of the stick and all his hard work doesn't go down the drain into someone else's hands and pockets. For real..get money together, build a spot and lay Michael 2 rest. The legal battle will go on for awhile.
