Jackson Family Claims of MJ’s Will Being ‘Fake and Fraudulent’ May Be Causing Mother Grieve
News has become available that Katherine Jackson may have suffered a mini-stroke. This could have caused the elderly mother grieve during this debate about MJ’s will and the validity of the signing of it.
NY Daily News reports:
Five of Michael Jackson’s disinherited siblings are again claiming that the singer’s will is “fake, flawed and fraudulent” — and that his lawyers forged the King of Pop’s signature on it.
Tito, Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie Jackson penned a poison letter to the late singer’s estate lawyers, restating an old claim that it is bogus, and demanding that the lawyers, John Branca and John McClain, resign immediately as executors of Jacko’s estate.
“Our brother told us, in no uncertain terms and without hesitation in the months prior to his death, that he despised both of you and he did not want either of you to have anything to do with his life or estate for that matter,” the siblings wrote.
Specifically, the Jackson 5 claims that it has proof that Michael was in New York, not in Los Angeles, on the day he supposedly signed his will on the West Coast.
The proof the brothers claim they have may include Al Sharpton’s account that Michael Jackson was with him in New York on the weekend of July 5th 2002 when it is stated Jackson signed the will on July 7th, 2002 in Los Angeles. Michael Jackson was hosted by Sharpton’s organization in New York City, where Michael spoke about his feelings toward Sony executive Tommy Mottola and the record industry, reports NewsOne.

They also claim that Branca and McClain lied to get family matriarch Katherine Jackson, 82, to agree to increase their percentage of the gross income from their brother’s estate.
The executors of MJ’s estate state that Katherine Jackson suffered a small stroke due to the stress about news surrounding the will.
“Your actions are affecting her health, and on top of that, we’ve just found out she recently had a mini-stroke,” the Jacksons wrote. “Please understand, she’s not equipped to handle the stress load you are putting on her.”
