Joe Jackson Wants Michael's Earnings Published

JOE JACKSON's lawyer is demanding publication of MICHAEL JACKSON's posthumous earnings following reports his estate has made $900 million (£600 million) since his death last year (09).
The King of Pop passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest on 25 June and fans flocked to buy his albums and merchandise in the aftermath.
Since his death, Jackson's estate administrators have signed a $250 million (£166 million) deal with Sony which gave the record label full access to the singer's back catalogue and unreleased material.
The release of his This Is It film, which gave fans a glimpse of Jackson in rehearsals for his ill-fated London tour residency, made more than $260 million (£173 million).
An insider tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "The estate has made around $900 million in cash since Michael's death. This is an incredible amount. No other artist has ever made that much since they died. It should ensure Michael goes down in history as the greatest artist of all time."
But Joe Jackson, who wants a share of the estate, is fuming - and his legal team is calling for administrators to publish details of the star's posthumous earnings.
He tells the publication, "They are being too secretive. The public has a right to know what the estate is doing in his name."

At this point in time, yes Michaels-earnings should be published...................and the people who are handling the financial affairs of Michael's 3 children should be the first to know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!this way, by making it public it would keep the the people who are trying to get at Michael's fortune at bay.....yes it should be made public so to protect Michael's 3 children to make sure that the money goes to them......and not in the wrong hands......

Michael Jackson expressed in in Will and Trust that his earnings should be used only forthe benefit of his mother: Kathrine and his children: Prince, Paris, and Blanket, and, finally, his Charitable Trust for Children. Neither Joe Jackson or any of his other relativeswere listed as beneficiaries. Michael Jackson from until he was 5 years old, he already provided for all of his other relatives. By the way, YES, MICHAEL WAS MURDEREDby powerful corporate interests.

As I see it,it is none of Michael's fathers busnesshow much money Michael made before nor after hisdeath none of the money goes to Michaels father.And now Joe is wanting to file for custody of Michaels 3children.so he can get his hands on Moichaels moneyJoe dosen't want the kids just the money.So I say Joe doesn't need to know. Michael left his fater out of his will and didn't leave anything to him ,that is what Michael wanted sohonor Michaels wishes, Michael left Joe nothing andJoe should get nothing.

Joe Jackson should be put in a big wooden crate and mailed back to Jaboobie, Africa. {They probably wouldn't like him either}He'd probably try to steal their spears.
