Janet Jackson Releases Statement on Michael's Will, Slams Executors, "Relentless" Negative Publicity

by at . Comments

Janet Jackson's attorney has released a new statement reiterating the star's concern with the executors of her late brother Michael Jackson‘s will.

The statement makes clear that Janet, who is barred from mother Katherine Jackson's home, is not motivated by money with her criticisms.

The 46-year-old, whose net work is estimated at $150 million, alleges that the executors do not have his children's best interests at heart.

Her lawyer, Blair Brown, released the following statement Friday:

“Since the loss of Michael Jackson, Janet, Randy, and Rebbie's principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and well-being of Michael's children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family."

"Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by actions of the executors of Michael's estate, the estate's lawyer, and those installed and paid to do their bidding.”

"The effect of that notice [barring Janet, Randy and Rebbie from KJ's home] is not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael's will."

"It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have all questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever - they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid."

"What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of the children, which is what Michael wanted."

"The negative media campaign generated by the executors has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media received preposterous reports - all now proven to be false - of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child."

"Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother Michael."

Brown is likely correct in that Michael's kids are his beneficiaries either way and that invalidating the will wouldn't do much for anyone else financially - Prince, Paris and Blanket ultimately get the money either way.

Yet it's hard to truly gauge the motives of Janet, Rebbie, Randy, Tito and Jermaine Jackson, who signed an earlier letter calling on the executors to resign.

That letter claimed Katherine had a stroke and was stressed out by the executors' actions... almost implying the executors are trying to kill Katherine.

The executors responded saying they were "saddened" by the "false and defamatory" accusations grounded in "stale Internet conspiracy theories."

Jermaine Jackson rescinded his signature from the letter earlier this week, saying his young son was heartbroken over the ban on visits to KJ's house.

Tito, whose son TJ became the kids' temporary guardian after Katherine temporarily lost custody while in Arizona, also took his name off the letter.

A judge reinstated Katherine Jackson as co-guardian with TJ.

For the time being, it looks like Janet, Rebbie and Randy Jackson are pressing on and will not be extending the same olive branch as Jermaine.

Hey!!! Just as I thought, another news source says that Howard Mann has recently filed a suit claiming the Will is fraudulent. This is Randy Jackson's slimey friend who is always circling the edges trying to get into the Jackson money. I knew he was involved. I have been waiting for his name to pop up again---just didn't think it would be this soon after the turmoil hit the news. He is wiggling his way inside. Just watch!!! Paris--Sound the Alarm...again.

Yesterday, Ann said exactly what I was thinking also. The siblings want to squeeze one of Randy's sleezy business friends into that executor position. Michael pulled himself away from the siblings for a reason--now we see it. It's a good thing Paris remembered enough of what dad told her to SOUND the ALARM. Otherwise, what would have happened in PRIVATE. Randy said they had a plane waiting to take the kids to see their grandmother; yet, when the grandmother returned home the next day (in an emergency situation), she had to drive. Just saying...
