In a surprise move, Joe Jackson is looking not to stir the proverbial pot.

The late Michael Jackson's father is trying to prevent armies of famously passionate Michael Jackson fans from exploding on Dr. Conrad Murray supporters ... which apparently exist ... at the doctor's upcoming hearing in court.

Joe's begging Michael's fans to not "lower" themselves to "their" level.

It's unclear who they even are, but in a letter to MJ's fans, Joe says:

Joe would also love you to pick up MJ's greatest hits.

"We would like to urge fans that are planning to attend to please do so in peace, unity and love for Michael. There should be NO violence, NO slander, NO yelling, and NO bad-mouthing or name-calling of Murray or his supporters."

Joe added, "By calling names, we are lowering ourselves to their level."

The elder Jackson says the message is simple, "Justice for Michael."

Never thought we'd see the day, but we have nothing bad to say about Joe here. Perhaps he's just letting his own wrongful death suit against Murray do the talking.

Amid reports (ones corroborated by a close friend) that Michael Jackson had an affair with Jason Pfeiffer, Joe Jackson is denouncing the notion that MJ was gay.

Joe, Michael's father, is royally pissed at his former best friend/doctor, Arnold Klein, for claiming MJ was gay and had a relationship with Klein's office manager.

MJ in Fear

Joe railed against Klein, saying: "It's not true. Michael was not gay. [Klein] has no respect for Michael ... to say things about him when he's gone is shameful."

Jason Pfeiffer was on TV last week, claiming he had a sexual relationship with Michael, and Dr. Arnold Klein spoke of walking in on the two men shirtless.

Later, Dr. Arnold Klein said matter-of-factly: "Was he gay? Yes."

Joe Jackson: Not a big fan of Arnie Klein.

Not only was Michael Jackson a homosexual, Klein says, he had no problem with people knowing ... which seems unlikely, as he shrouded himself in secrecy.

In any case, never one to miss a quotable opportunity, Joe Jackson went on, "He's a doctor and knows better than to break his vows against a patient."

Speaking of doctors who broke plenty of vows, how happy is Dr. Conrad Murray right now? A scandalous Jackson story that has nothing to do with him!

Are you buying it? Do you think Michael Jackson was ...

Michael Jackson's father, Joe, is "horrified" at the prospect of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team arguing that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of Propofol.

The defense believes MJ woke up shortly before noon on the day he died, when Dr. Conrad Murray stepped out of the room, and decided to up his dosage. Big time.

Akon and Michael Jackson

Murray's lawyers are ready to argue that Michael's addictive personality makes it more than feasible that he injected far too much Propofol and stopped his heart.

But Joe Jackson ain't buying it.

"I don't believe it. It's not true," he said, asserting that Murray covered up evidence. "Why would he [Dr. Murray] hide all the bottles if such a story were true. The Coroner's report shows the story is not true. It really upsets me to hear this."

Joe Jackson never met a Michael Jackson CD lawsuit he didn't like.

While Murray's story definitely seems a bit out there, one can never really trust the motives of Michael's father, either. Sure, he's probably upset Michael died.

But any chance to make money, he pounces on!

Joe has also fired a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray, claiming he needs a big payday his actions were "reckless" and "amount to second degree murder."

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, won't go that far, but adds, "His [Dr. Murray's] story is medically inconsistent with the autopsy findings ... I would need to see the photographs of the scene in order to assess his story."

He's been saying for some time that the involuntary manslaughter charge against Murray is not enough. Looks like Joe's now taking things into his own hands.

The involuntary manslaughter charge filed against Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson wasn't nearly enough to satisfy the late icon's father, Joe.

Following Murray's arraignment on Monday, a disappointed Joe did what he does best - went on Larry King Live to ridiculously say that Michael was murdered.

Joe Jackson never met a microphone he didn't like to babble nonsensically into, and somehow managed once again to make Michael's sad death all about him.

The Jackson family patriarch said that Michael's death was part of a larger plot and Murray got off easy. Michael's sister La Toya issued a similar statement.

Here's Joe Jackson on Larry King Live last night ...

Attorney Brian Oxman seconded that the reckless administration of Propofol by Murray would constitute second degree murder for any victim not named MJ.

Never mind that the charge came after a six-month investigation and that there was clearly no intent by Murray, however careless he was, for Michael to die.

Yesterday, Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, labeled Murray a monster. That he may be, but a murderer in the eyes of the law is quite another matter.

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.

Joe Jackson.

That's the biggest reason the executors of Michael Jackson's estate believe they are entitled to more than the statutory fee most executors receive.

That and the 14-hour days.

According to legal documents filed with the court, co-executors John Branca and John McClain "defend the estate from a steady barrage of attacks."

Those attacks would be courtesy of the late music icon's erratic father, Joe Jackson and, until recently, by his mother and other family members too.

They claim they've been working 14 hours a day, seven days a week since they were appointed and say their "business reputations and the character and reputation of Michael Jackson were being assaulted by personal and unfounded attacks."

Joe Jackson is still making Michael's life difficult.

This forced them to correct these allegations fervently and publicly in order to protect the Michael Jackson estate and the Michael Jackson brand.

No specific behavior by Joe was mentioned (in reports), but his relentless quest to cash in can mean objections raised to ... just about everything.

Guy is not known for tact, either.

Branca and McClain say at the time Michael Jackson died June 25, Michael and his businesses were named as defendants in 11 separate lawsuits.

It only got worse after his death.

Executors get a percentage of the value of the estate. Jackson's two are asking for "extraordinary compensation" for work most executors never have to do.

Joe Jackson was already shut down last week by a judge after he tried to get a piece of son Michael's estate. But he's looking to overturn the court's decision.

The man is relentless in pursuit of cashing in. We're surprised he hasn't personally shown up to the house of Dr. Conrad Murray. Then again, he's broke.

Joe filed papers echoing Randy Jackson's recent claims that someone forged MJ's will. Joe wanted the judge to replace the current executors of MJ's estate.

A judge shot this down, clearing the way for Michael's executors, John Branca and John McClain, to do their thing. But Joe filed papers challenging the ruling.

Joe Jackson will not stop. Ever.

Next up, Joe will be caught on closed circuit TV trying to break into Forest Lawn and see if Michael was buried wearing any jewelry he can sell on

The judge in the Michael Jackson estate case nixed Joe Jackson's latest round objections to the star's will and to its executors, saying MJ's dad has no legal standing.

Basically, he can't object because he's not named in the will anyway, and his claims are, well, baseless. John Branca and John McClain will be appointed executors.

According to legal papers filed by Joe Jackson yesterday, Michael Jackson never signed his will, dated 2002, and the named executors have committed fraud.

There was a clerical mistake in the will, which we talked about a few weeks back. The document indicates Jackson signed the will in L.A., yet he was in NYC.

It was in fact signed in New York and the witnesses saw Michael put pen to paper, one of them just wrote L.A. instead of New York. The will remains valid.

Joe Jackson will stop at nothing for headlines.

But Joe insisted this was no mere clerical mistake and that his son never signed the will. Joe Jackson claims John Branca and John McClain should be booted as administrators because they concealed what Joe calls a "fraud."

What did he hope to gain from this? Probably just an allowance.

Joe claims Michael fired Branca in 2003 and believed the attorney embezzled the music icon's money "illegally into off-shore accounts in the Caribbean."

The judge wasn't having it, though. Thankfully.

Joe Jackson recently said son Michael is worth more dead than alive.

He's apparently taken that statement to heart - and to court.

Michael J. Walks

Despite the fact that his famously wealthy son probably did not leave him any money for a very good reason, Joe claims there was "no justification" for him to be excluded from getting some money from Michael Jackson's estate.

He's asking a judge to grant him a monthly allowance.

The 80-year-old Joe filed papers in L.A. County Superior Court late last week, claiming the patriarch is "entitled to his own independent family allowance."

Leonard Rowe, who claims to have been MJ's manager at one point, says Michael used to give his mother Katherine up to $60,000 a month to live on, and Michael instructed her to give half of it to Joe, who she is still technically married to.

If that's true, it doesn't explain why he deliberately left Katherine 40 percent of his estate, and guardianship of his children, while not mentioning Joe.

Joe claims Michael's estate "earned more than $100 million dollars in the first seven weeks following Michael Jackson's death" and can afford it.

Well, obviously it can afford it. But would Michael want to pay the man who abused him physically and mentally and was often estranged from?

Joe says he has $15,425 in total monthly expenses he wants covered. Michael's will executors, John McClain and John Branca, say the elder Jackson's request "will be considered as are all requests for money from Michael Jackson's Estate."

Maybe Joe just feels he's earned it by making death threats against other people seeking to get money from his obsecenly rich, deceased son.

Michael Jackson's insane father, Joe Jackson, has been accused of a lot. But never before until now "running a campaign of terror against a former associate."

This alleged associate is trying to prove Michael had an illegitimate son. Aren't they all. He filed a request for a restraining order filed last week against Joe.

Michael's brother Randy Jackson is also named in the court papges.

Ronnie Newt says he was threatened by Joe after approaching him with info he believed proved Michael is the father of Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson, 12.

Newt said that Joe denied Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson was Michael's offspring, despite the strangely coincidental name. What are the odds of that?!

Interestingly, Joe has seemed to confirm Omer Bhatti is MJ's son.

Joe Jackson, now 80, with the late King of Pop back in 2005.

According to the court documents, Newt claims "I was told to stay away from the M.J. love child story. That some one could get kill [sic] for that kind of money."

Newt also warned that if he turns up dead in the near future, authorities should suspect foul play. He's demanding the Jacksons stay 50 yards away from him.

Joe, for the record, told TMZ that the death threat allegations against Newt are completely bogus and added, "I haven't even seen this guy since the '80s."
