Michael Jackson’s Brother Calls Executors of Pop Star’s Estate “The Three Stooges”


Exclusive: Randy Jackson called Michael Jackson’s executors “the three stooges” this past weekend in a podcast interview with his former attorney Brian Oxman. He named them, too– John Branca, John McClain, and Howard Weitzman (who is not an executor but the attorney who represents the estate).

Oxman was a lawyer once until he was disbarred after several disciplinary actions by the California Bar Association. After representing Randy Jackson in his divorce, Oxman also claimed for years to be the Jackson family attorney. He was fired from Michael Jackson’s defense team in 2005 during the child molestation trial in Santa Maria by Thomas Mesereau.

In the podcast, which I’ve linked below, Randy says: “My family is not happy with McClain and Branca. We don’t believe the will is real. We don’t support [the estate]. We’re not happy.”

Randy also says that “this is the tip of the iceberg” in relation to the Michael Jackson Estate’s current problems with the Internal Revenue Service. He says, “I know something is wrong.” Neither Randy nor any of his siblings received any money from Michael Jackson’s will. One brother, Jackie, is on the estate payroll, however. Randy says in the interview: “A few of my brothers and sisters I’m not getting along with right now.”

Last year, in June 2012, Randy was part of a trio with Janet and Jermaine Jackson who spirited their mother, Katherine Jackson, away to Arizona. The trip turned into a full scale scandal when Paris Jackson tweeted that no one knew what had happened to her grandmother. Randy refers to the incident as “the kidnapping” and suggests that someone–the executors?– invented that to take the heat off his now famous letter to the executors demanding that they resign.

Randy also suggests that “someone” was giving Dr. Conrad Murray orders to drug Michael.

How Brian Oxman got an internet radio show is another question altogether.
