Michael Jackson’s Mom, Katherine, Wants The Court To Order Her Son’s Estate To Pay For The Legal Services She Incurred


Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, doesn’t care about the feud between her and her son’s estate as she needs to settle her legal fees. She has filed a lawsuit seeking enough money to cover up for her legal woes against the same estate she battled with.

Michael Jackson’s Estate Vs. Katherine Jackson

The mother of the deceased King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is not backing down against her fight with his estate. Before the new motion, Katherine was at loggerheads with those who managed her son’s property.

Katherine sued the estate for trying to close in on a deal without her knowledge. She hadn’t approved of it in the first place. But John Branca and John McCain refused to back down. The duo that Michael put in charge of the property faulted Katherine’s judgment.

In their defense, she had ruled off other last offers that amassed high profit in the end. The defendants cited Michael’s 2009 This Is It production. It peaked as one of the highest-grossing concert films of all time.

In their statement to the court, per The Jasmine Brand:

“The Estate was teetering on the verge of collapse, with more than $400 million in debt that encumbered Michael’s most significant assets and little or no liquidity or means to service that debt.”

Amid their side of the story, Michael’s mom was not satisfied with the current ruling involving her and the estate. However, she wants them to cater to her legal payments.

This sum was due to the heavy spending, including her attorneys’ preparations, for a good case. The 92-year-old stated that she worked with Glaser Weil, Fink Howard, and Jordan & Shapiro. The law firms performed interviews and interviewed and gathered witnesses. The legal fees cover the job from April 1, 2023, to November 30, 2023.

Katherine’s lawyers argue that her son’s estate can afford the fees as they have more than enough resources to cover up and more.
