Joe Jackson Withdraws Request For Estate Allowance

MICHAEL JACKSON's father has dropped his legal petition to receive a monthly allowance from his late son's estate.
Joe Jackson filed a claim for a monthly stipend of over $15,000 (£10,000) last November (09), claiming he had relied on the King of Pop's help to survive - because he had little income of his own.
In the legal documents, Joe Jackson stated he needed the cash to cover "maintenance expenses" and to "support his children or grandchildren".
His claim was opposed by the Thriller star's estate, with executors John Branca and John MCClain filing papers opposing the move.
The case was due to be heard in Los Angeles Superior Court but Joe appears to have had a change of heart and his lawyers have now withdrawn the claim for an estate allowance, reports TMZ.com.
Since the pop superstar's death a year ago (Jun09), Joe Jackson has launched his own music label, Ranch Records, with Chi-Lites star Marshall Thompson.

Strange why he didn't got a penny from Michael. Guess he didn't was much of a father. He anounced his new record compagny a 1 or two days after Michael died. Not much of an emotioanl speech. But a buisness speech. Would be hard for a father not to get the money. Espacialy when it is so much money. But why o why didn't he got any money? And why has he so little income. Where are all the rights from the Jackson 5 years? What did he do with all the mony that he did earn? Why did the family gave a warehouse full of worthfull stuff to Julien? No more money to pay the laywers for all those strange lawsuits? But do a little intervieuw here and there. Show up at some tributes. There is big money to earn by that. Cause the whole world is watching. And everybody is praising everybody. And all want the money. To blow it all away. How nice it would be to have Michaels estate. He slammed his children on stage to perform according to Michael. To get rich and famous with his children. Understandeble to get out of poor Gary. And look what the world got. Great entertaniment with the Jacksons. And the biggest entertainer of all time with Michael. But he wasn't much of a father apperently. In the end he's getting nothing back. How ironic. It would be a good filmscript for a dramamovie. Could win the Oscars. With much money to make. The title should be: "Money, money, mony, in a "rich" man's world.Ohm shante.
