Even in death, the personal life of Michael Jackson remains as bizarre as his musical talent was profound. The King of Pop is simply peerless on both arenas.
The latest saga? A declaration filed with the court, purportedly signed by his mom, Katherine Jackson, in which she attacks the executors of MJ's estate.
The declaration filed in the Estate's lawsuit against the Heal the World Foundation makes shocking allegations against John Branca, calling him a thief.
Despite the fact that Branca and John McClain have resurrected MJ's reputation and wealth, KJ's statement lambasts their theft of his money and image.
Only now, Katherine insists she never signed it! Is there a conspiracy at work here? Katherine's lawyer, Adam Streisand, tells TMZ the following:
"Mrs. Jackson categorically denies signing any statement that makes accusations of any wrongdoing by the executors with respect to her son or his estate."
Streisand adds, "She did not and would not make any such statements about the executors." Streisand says Katherine told him, "These are not my words."
The Heal the World Foundation lawyer says someone faxed Katherine's manager the final document, later sent to Pease with the signature in question.
Pease says if the signature is a fraud, "Heads will roll."Pease just called us back to say Trent Jackson - Joe Jackson's nephew and Katherine's caregiver - told him he personally saw Katherine sign the thing.
Sources connected with the Estate say the declaration is suspicious, because the last page ONLY contains a signature, without any accompanying text.
In other words, it's not out of the question that someone could have inserted the signature into a declaration Katherine never saw or approved.
