Joe Jackson wants an allowance from the Michael Jackson estate. Joe Jackson demanded that the Michael Jackson estate give him an allowance, and that there was no justification that his son left him out of the original will. Joe Jackson and his lawyers filed papers that state he is entitled to an allowance that is independent from what the rest of the family receives from the estate. The bottom line excuse coming from Joe Jackson is that the estate can afford to do it, and that his expenses are too high to cover on his own. Maybe Joe Jackson should have thought about that before Michael felt it was necessary to not put his father in the will.
In the paperwork that Joe Jackson has submitted to the Los Angeles courts, he needs money to cover his $15,425 monthly expenses. Among those expenses, he lists eating out costing him $2,500 per month, that air travel costs him $2,000 per month, and that hotel bills cost him $3,000 per month. He also wants the Michael Jackson estate to pay for his groceries, his rant, and his charitable contributions. It’s seems pretty ridiculous that he would even request this money, let alone that he feels he is entitled to it. Now the courts will have to decide if Joe Jackson does deserve an allowance from Michael Jackson’s estate, even though he was indeed left out of the will.
The decision by the courts will probably hinge on facts as well as rumors about what is going on here. Joe Jackson will most certainly claim that he was already receiving an allowance from his son, even if it was through money that was given to his wife Katherine Jackson. It was already revealed that Katherine Jackson was given an allowance by her son, but it was never made clear that Joe Jackson was ever directly receiving money from his son over the years. Now it will be up to Joe Jackson and his lawyers to prove that he did indeed receive the allowance, and that he deserves to keep having all of his bills paid from money that should be going to Michael Jackson’s kids.
The ultimate question here is whether Joe Jackson deserves to even get a dime from the Michael Jackson estate. If we believe everything that Michael Jackson said throughout his life, it’s hard to fathom that he would want Joe Jackson seeing any money after his death. It’s also quite curious that Katherine Jackson is receiving so much money from the Michael Jackson estate, but that she isn’t giving anything to her husband, nor is she willing to pay his expenses. Joe Jackson appears to be trying to take advantage of his kids once again, this time in order to take money away from his grandkids. Now he just sounds like a 5-year-old demanding a raise in his allowance simply because he feels he deserves it.
