The on-going, and quite frankly tiring, saga of the Jackson family rumbles on, with a statement released by Janet Jackson's attorney that strongly refutes claims made by Michael Jackson 's estate handlers that she and the late singer's brothers are trying to benefit financially from them. There have been several disagreements over the reading of the will, with the family furious that music industry veterans John Branca and John MCClain are in charge of Jackson's legacy and not they. Added to that is the confusing subplot that played out recently that saw the family matriarch Katherine Jackson seemingly disappear for 10 days to a spa, only to claim she'd been sent there by her kids to keep her out of the way.
The latest twist comes from Janet, whose attorney Blair G. Brown said in a statement "They stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid." Continuing, he added "What will be gained ... is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interest of the children, which is what Michael wanted."
That's according to Janet's view point anyway, despite it seemingly being different to the 2002 will that was signed and agreed. This has been rumbling on for months now, and there is still no clear sign of how it's going to end.
