Michael Jackson’s mom wants to intervene in lawsuit against singer’s estate

February 17, 2017

Michael Jackson’s mother is seeking a judge’s permission to intervene as a plaintiff in a lawsuit brought against her late son’s estate by four people who maintain they had interests in a company the singer created before his 2009 death.

Lawyers for the Jackson estate maintain the estate owns 100 percent of the Michael Jackson Co. because the singer was the sole owner when he was alive. However, in her  court papers, 86-year-old Katherine Jackson agrees with the other claimants that she has a 10 percent interest in the entity. She says the executors, John Branca and John McClain,  “failed to properly apprise her” of the proceedings.
