Michael Jackson's Will Revealed
According to a will made in 2002, Michael Jackson singer - who died last Thursday (25.06.09) of a suspected cardiac arrest - has not left anything to his father Joe.
Michael Jackson left his entire estate to his three children, mother Katherine and several charities.
Documents filed by the singer - who died last Thursday (25.06.09) of a suspected cardiac arrest - in 2002 show he left nothing to his father Joe Jackson, with who he had a turbulent relationship and accused of abusing him.
The will is believed to be the last one made by the singer - who had three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II - and is expected to be handed to Los Angeles Superior Court later this week.
Michael's lawyer John Branca - who stopped working with Michael in 2006 but was reportedly rehired three weeks ago, and who arranged for Michael to buy The Beatles publishing catalogue in 1985 - and music executive John McClain are named as executors of the will.
In a petition filed by Michael's parents to administer his estate on Monday (29.06.09), they claimed their son died "intestate", meaning without a will.
Joe and Katherine's lawyer L. Londell McMillan claims neither of Michael's parents have seen the 2002 document.
McMillan wrote in an email: "No will has been presented to family or us. We will review any will when we see it."
