After losing his son, attorneys decide that Michael Jackson’s father, Joe, will also lose his monthly allowance of $15,000.
Last Thursday was when the final papers were signed and estate attorneys have concluded that, since Joe Jackson was living independently of his son while the latter was alive, there is no reason for him to receive a monthly allowance, especially since he was not included in Michael’s will.
King of Pop’s father, age 81, required the monthly sum of $15,000 in order to pay for flights, hotel stays, assistants’ wages and legal taxes and to maintain the well being of his children and grandchildren.
He declared a couple of months ago that his monthly expenses after Michael’s death (in June 25, 2009 at the age of 50) go beyond $20,000, while the United States’ Government only pays him the mere sum of $1,700.
On the 28th of January, another hearing is established by the judge Mitchell Beckloff from the Superior Court of Los Angeles, but for now Joe Jackson’s private lawyer could not be contacted in order to give an official opinion on the matter.
Although Michael Jackson has created a trust in order to assure a careless life for his children (the funds are now estimated to exceed $2,000,000), he did not include his father in the testament as a consequence of their very troubled and supposedly violent relationship.
