Michael Jackson Helped To Fund Dad's Lifestyle

MICHAEL JACKSON paid his mother KATHERINE an extra $16,000 (£10,670)-a-month to help support his father JOE in the years leading up to his death, according to new legal documents.
The King of Pop's financial records have come under scrutiny after Joe Jackson filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the singer's embattled physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, following allegations the medic administered a fatal dose of the anaesthetic Propofol.
He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and is awaiting a preliminary hearing in January (11) to determine if he will face trial.
But the Jackson patriarch is seeking unspecified damages from Murray, and new papers recently filed in a Los Angeles court suggest Michael agreed to the increased payment to his mum to help cover Joe's living expenses.
A sworn statement submitted by Michael's alleged former manager, Leonard Rowe, claims Katherine acted as the late star's agent and handed over cash to Joe, according to TMZ.com.
Other court documents, including a declaration from Joe's lawyer Brian Oxman, stated the Thriller hitmaker was paying Katherine £50,000 (£33,330) in the early 2000s, but later upped the amount to $66,000 (£44,000), to take care of the family patriarch too.
Joe is using the financial statements to back up his wrongful death case and prove he has legal standing to sue.
Michael died in June 2009.

It's not surprising. Michael said he grew to forgive his father and realized his father was tough on him BECAUSE he loved him. It was an imperfect love but it was love. He did not hate his father, like medialoid tells everybody. He didn't understand his father or feel like he 'knew' him. Michael said on the Glenda tapes he would always give his mother money to give to Joe considering his mother was more wise with the money decisions. Michael never mistreated his father or spoke ill of him in public. He just admitted there was abuse. Media wants to blame Joe for Michael's problems but take not acknowledge their own wrongdoing.

I hope Joe sues and gets the money from whoever is helping that jerk Murray. Take everything he owns. It's true that Michael was still afraid of Joe at times, but he and Joe did have moments of reconciliation and all he wanted was his father's love. Michael needs justice and Joe is at least doing what he can there. As much as I dislike him for what he did to Michael, MJ was forgiving and who are we to disregard that? Joe does stupid things, but who doesn't?My God bless MJ and all his family. May Satan come to pick up Murray, Diane Dimond, Bashir etc. Anyone who made life miserable for MJ should pay for it.
