Janet Jackson has stayed relatively quiet regarding her family drama until now…where she says she had been barred from seeing her mother in order to keep Katherine from questioning the validity of Michael Jackson’s will. Jackson also added that she has no financial gain by questioning Michael’s will.
According to E!News,
“The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless,” Janet Jackson’s attorney, Blair G. Brown, said on behalf of the singer, her sister and her brother. “In recent weeks, the media has received preposterous reports—all now proven to be false—of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child.
The executors 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 questioning the validity of Michael’s will.”
“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,” Brown wrote.
Randy Jackson previously said on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show that Michael was with him in New York when the will was supposedly signed.
A spokesman for Branca and McClain has denied from the start the claim that the will was fraudulent.
“It is important to stress,” Brown continued, “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 the 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,” Brown concluded.
