Attorneys for Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, want to know all of the intimate details and see the backup documentation which support the latest accounting and status report filed by the co-executors of Michael Jackson's estate. Last week Katherine's attorney, Perry Sanders, told RadarOnline: "My audit is being done to see the details of where the money is coming from and where it is going. The beneficiaries [Katherine and Michael's children, Prince, Paris and Blanket] should be entitled to all detailed documentation so they can see what THEIR money is paying for."
Sanders' comments stem from his July 19 Request for Production of Supporting Documents for Account Current filed in Michael Jackson's probate matter in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to the court filing, "Ms. Katherine Jackson...hereby requests that representatives John Branca, John McClain and counsel for the Estate of Michael Jackson produce for inspection and audit all supporting documents for the Second Account Current and Report of Status of Administration and Petition."
Co-executors John Branca and John McClain have countered that the request is too vague and ambiguous and the estate "will not produce such documents absent the entry of a stipulation and protective order governing, among other things, the access to and use of highly confidential documents." According to the online probate court docket, a hearing has been schedule for September 20 for Judge Mitchell Beckloff to weigh in on the request.
Meanwhile, as anticipated, last week Judge Beckloff appointed Michael Jackson's nephew, TJ Jackson, a son of Tito, as permanent co-guardian of Michael's children alongside Katherine Jackson.
