Joe Jackson has been trying to position himself for a cut of Michael Jackson's estate ever since his son passed away in June ... and probably long before that.
Well, the executors of Jackson's estate, John McClain and John Branca, does not want to pay Joe the an allowance he feels he deserves. The reason is simple:
Because Michael Jackson would not want to pay him a dime.
After all, the late King of Pop not want his dad to be a beneficiary under his will, and Joe wants to use money for "lavish expenses" rather than maintenance.
Just the same, he's relentlessly battling the estate.
Joe Jackson is seeking $15,000 a month from his late son.
According to legal documents, Jackson's estate says Joe was never legally dependent on Michael Jackson while he was alive and that shouldn't change now.
So-called "maintenance expenses" Joe wants include vacations, air travel, hotels, assistants and legal fees, the executors say. Mmmyeah, not gonna happen.
Joe Jackson says a desired allowance includes cash to "support his children or grandchildren," but Katherine Jackson already does so - at $60,000/month.
Translation: As far as the estate is concerned, Joe can pound sand.
