Michael Jackson's Father Drops Request for Estate Allowance

Joe Jackson

However, it has not been known why Joe Jackson withdraws his legal petition to receive a monthly allowance from his son's estate after previously claimed he had little income of his own.

Michael Jackson's father has dropped his legal petition to receive a monthly allowance from his late son's estate. Joe Jackson filed a claim for a monthly stipend of over $15,000 (10,000 pound sterling) in November 2009, claiming he had relied on the King of Pop's help to survive - because he had little income of his own.

In the legal documents, Joe Jackson stated he needed the cash to cover "maintenance expenses" and to "support his children or grandchildren". His claim was opposed by the "Thriller" star's estate, with executors John Branca and John McClain filing papers opposing the move.

The case was due to be heard in Los Angeles Superior Court but Joe appears to have had a change of heart and his lawyers have now withdrawn the claim for an estate allowance, reports TMZ. Since the pop superstar's death a year ago Joe Jackson has launched his own music label, Ranch Records, with The Chi-Lites star Marshall Thompson.

    MJFan and Cinsimo it pains me to say, that I believe you are both correct in all you state. One would hope out of the loss of his son, Joe would have learned a bigger lesson out of life, that people and love are endlessly more important than money! He continues with using of Mike!

    Joe dropped his claim, b/c he and his wife are making backdoor deals at the expense of MJs estate and his children. Fans, DO NOT support the Jackson Family Foundation or the Michael Jackson Museum in Gary,IN. Neither of these deals is legitimate nor have they been approved by the estate. This is just a way to funnel money into Joe's pockets. I'm disappointed that Katherine (yes) is going along with all this. :(

    Joe Jackson at the moment has found others to try and squeeze or scam money out of i.e. Dr. Murray and AEG. Don't get me wrong, I totally believe Dr. Murray killed Michael acting unethically against the hypocratic oath he took as a doctor, but I don't believe AEG is libel. Joe Jackson is a greedy, slimey human being who has tried to make money off Michael since he passed. Joe has not shown one ounce of grief.
