Michael Jackson's mother no longer objects to estate executors
An attorney for Katherine Jackson this morning told a judge that the singer’s mother no longer objects to the special administrators of her son’s estate.
The attorney, Adam Streisand, said his client feels it’s “high time” that they move past the conflict and begin to “work together.”
Attorneys for Katherine Jackson had previously indicated she may legally challenge the executors named in the will to manage the estate.
Lawyers have said the singer’s trust includes a provision that cuts out of the will any beneficiary who challenges its validity. Streisand also objected to Joe Jackson stepping into the fray, arguing that the singer’s father had no standing because he was not named as an heir.
Judge Mitchell Beckloff will hear arguments this afternoon over father Joe Jackson’s involvement.Joe Jackson's attorneys want the estate to help cover living expenses that exceed $20,000 a month.
Joe Jackson on Monday also filed new court papers claiming that his son believed the executors of his will were defrauding him.
Joe Jackson had a rocky relationship with his son and was not mentioned in the pop star's will.
The estate is already paying Jackson's mother a monthly allowance of $26,000 and an attorney for Joe Jackson, 81, wrote in the Los Angeles County Superior Court filing that the family patriarch was entitled to the "same manner" of support.
