As we previously reported, Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine wants four of her grandchildren and their mom to move out so she can care for MJ’s kids.
Prince, Paris and Blanket are under Katherine’s guardianship, but her mansion currently houses Alejandra Jackson and her four children as well, and it’s chaos.
The family housing feud began when the matriarch asked Alejandra and her four kids to move out, because they’re just too much to handle for Katherine, 80.
She has two kids (Jermajesty and Jaafar) by Jermaine Jackson and two others (Donte and Randy Jr.) by Randy Jackson, who had a heart attack this week.
The deal is this: Katherine and the Michael Jackson estate have offered to let Alejandra and her brood move into a nearby condo owned by Michael Jackson.
Alejandra has lawyered up, however, and while all Katherine wants is a confidentiality agreement, Alejandra wants better digs and a big financial settlement.
Another day, another dose of Jackson family drama.
Katherine needs Alejandra and her kids to move so she can care for Michael’s kids, and is reportedly ready to play hardball over it – condo or the highway.
Sources close to the family say Katherine cares deeply for the four grandchildren but is not about to be held hostage by someone who has no legal claim.
Jermaine Jackson does owe Alejandra back child support, but Katherine sees that as her son’s problem, not hers. Plus, Katherine is living on an allowance.
Michael left 40 percent of his estate to Katherine, but paid out in increments, with the remainder going to Paris, Prince and Blanket when she passes away.
Therefore, she doesn’t have access to a lump sum for a payoff and the executors of MJ’s estate aren’t going to cover Jermaine and Randy’s obligations.
Basically, it could get ugly for Katherine. Like, worse than Joe Jackson blaming Michael’s death on her ugly. But don’t underestimate this strong woman.
