Michael Jackson - Janet Jackson Denies She's After Michael Jackson's Money

The on-going, and quite frankly tiring, saga of the Jackson family rumbles on, with a statement released by Janet Jackson's attorney that strongly refutes claims made by Michael Jackson 's estate handlers that she and the late singer's brothers are trying to benefit financially from them. There have been several disagreements over the reading of the will, with the family furious that music industry veterans John Branca and John MCClain are in charge of Jackson's legacy and not they. Added to that is the confusing subplot that played out recently that saw the family matriarch Katherine Jackson seemingly disappear for 10 days to a spa, only to claim she'd been sent there by her kids to keep her out of the way.
The latest twist comes from Janet, whose attorney Blair G. Brown said in a statement "They stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid." Continuing, he added "What will be gained ... is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interest of the children, which is what Michael wanted."
That's according to Janet's view point anyway, despite it seemingly being different to the 2002 will that was signed and agreed. This has been rumbling on for months now, and there is still no clear sign of how it's going to end.

The Jackon family has nothing to gain from MJ's so called will, they only seem to want answers. I would do the same as you if, someone gave me proof that my loveone was in another state at the time the will was sign. Don't allow these Lawyers to get away with getting paid from your brother and making millions, when infact, he never wanted them to deal with his estate at all. Continue, to you find out the true facts.

Oh PLEEEEEZZZZZE! Although this will just happens to be worth more money than most,this family(just like any family) wants to know what's going on with the deceased relatives will. IT'S BEEN REPEATED ENOUGH TIMES FOR THE DUMBEST OF PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND, NONE OF THE SIBLINGS CAN GET ANY MONEY SO IF THEY ARE STILL AFTER THIS WILL THE REASON HAS TO BE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Janet Jackson is worth $225M so what in the hell would her motive be to go after the validity of this will? C'mom, people stop showing stupidity and so much jealousy or hatred for this family and try to figure out what the reasons could be. MJ's wishes as to whom will inherit his money wise is intact and set in stone, so maybe his siblings know something that WE don't. MJ had fired these same lawyers before because he couldn't trust them, then out of nowhere when he was doing "THIS IS IT" and then he was killed now all of a sudden they are back in the picture and have taken over the life of his mom, his kids and his legacy? I'd wonder how that happened too!

No she's not after his money,and she's not worth 225 million she's only worth about 150 million,and she's not after his money but she don't want the greedy bunch digging in her pockets like they have done to Michael all his life and now in death,they can try all they want they aren't getting nothing, they need jobs, look at Marlon,Jackie and Tito, they work real jobs, why can't the greedy bunch?

Obviously MIchael didn't trust any of them! Why else would he leave them out of his will?? I'm sure he had a good reason....Michael wasn't stupid and was probably tired of being used!! I'm also sure he didn't plan on dieing so young and leaving his children to be taken advantage of by greedy people,(I'm not speaking about his mother), she's probably the one person that really loved him, besides his kids. Its such a sad thing....Michael was so loved by his fans all over the world. I would have given anything just to meet him and talk to him. Why couldn't his family love him unconditionally like that??

The media is always gonna portray the family as gold diggers cos that's what they want you to think. MJ's whole career was contrived, he was the industry's own personal performing circus animal used to reel in the money. I dunno how he was able to put up with the acting so long... must've been on pain of death of the very family they want you to believe are financial vampires.....people need to switch on to who the real leeches are!
