The Jackson Fight Isn’t Over
The fight isn’t over yet. Blair Brown, lawyer for Janet Jackson, has issued a letter reaffirming Janet, Randy and Rebbie’s contention that the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate should be removed.
The letter was posted on Janet’s site on Saturday and says that none of them would gain anything financially but the estate would be run, under new executors, in the way that Michael wanted.
Of course, these executors have made hundreds of millions of dollars for the estate and taken it out of debt that Michael left behind to the tune of $400 million. How that is doing a bad job at running the estate is very questionable.
There were originally five Jackson’s on the letter; however, Tito disavowed his support in late-July and Jermaine did the same last week.
Here is the letter that was posted on Janet’s site:
“Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie’s principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of Michael’s children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family. Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael’s estate – John Branca and John McClain, the estate’s lawyer Howard Weitzman, and those installed and paid to do their bidding.
The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received proposterous reports – all now proven to be false – of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child. The exectors and their agents also recently issued a notice barring Janet, Randy and Rebbie from visiting their 82 year old mother and Michael’s children. The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael’s will.
The actions of the executors and those working for them can only be understood in light of the questions about the will raised by Janet, Randy and Rebbie. The executors have never explained how Michael could have signed his will in California on a date that irrefutable evidence establishes he was in New York.
It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever – they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid. That point is worth repeating – they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid. Michael’s children will be the beneficiaries of Michael’s estate. What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of his children, which is what Michael wanted. The individuals who have the most to lose by a finding that the will is invalid are, of course, the executors and those on the executors’ payroll.
Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother Michael.”
Howard Weitzman, who represents John McClain and John Branca, sent the email Wednesday to Charles Schultz, an attorney for TJ Jackson.
Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children, Janice Smith, (Janice is Mrs Jackson’s loyal dedicated personal asisstant, I personally know for a fact, Trent Jackson, Lowell Henry have fired may that were loyal to Mrs Jackson, BUT Mrs Jackson WOULD NOT ALLOW THE TO FIRE JANICE!!)
That was all then, then finally Mrs Jackson spoke up and left everything behind and now lives happily with her daughter.. We wont say “i told you so,” but we tell you all!!! John Branca still reigns over Michael’s estate and Mrs Jackson get nothing from it..
