Michael Jackson Estate Bars Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie and Joe Jackson from Kids’ Home


We are first to report this development in the Jackson saga: The executors of the Michael Jackson estate have sent a letter to most of the Jackson family barring them from Katherine Jackson’s rented home in Calabasas, California. The estate rents the house for Mrs. Jackson and Michael’s three kids. But now Joe Jackson as well as Randy, Jermaine, Janet, and Rebbie, any of their kids or spouses, plus Mrs. Jackson’s secretary Janice Smith–they are all barred from entering.

In other words , the “Jackson 5”–Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie and Joseph–are out.

After the sort of house attack conducted by Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson last week– in which the three siblings tried to take Michael Jackson’s kids, exchanged epithets with them etc–Mrs. Jackson’ s lawyers have sent a letter to them. Now that she’s back Katherine Jackson is allowing grandson TJ to draw up a list for security about who can come and go. There will be no more disturbances and no more crashing cars through security gates.

Here’s part of the letter sent by executor’s lawyer Howard Weitzman last Wednesday to the Jackson 5 so to speak. Randy Jackson gave it to a tabloid website thinking he was smart and people would be outraged. But in fact, the letter was the proper thing to do:

“Following the events of July 23 in which certain members of the Jackson family showed up unannounced at the Calabasas residence of Michael Jackson’s mother and children, causing a very public disturbance, the attorneys for the Estate of Michael Jackson as lessees of the house were requested by Charles Schultz, attorney for TJ Jackson, Jr., the newly appointed Temporary Guardian for Michael Jackson’s children, to send a list to the security gate of people neither TJ or the children wanted allowed on the premises in view of the incidents that had just taken place.  The list may be amended and managed by TJ Jackson Jr. or the Estate when appropriate.  It is imperative to the Estate that from this point forward a safe and appropriate environment be provided for Michael Jackson’s children and his mother.”

“Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children, Janice Smith, or anyone else who was involved in the recent events that led to Mrs. Jackson’s separation from and inability to communicate with Michael’s children, or any agents or representatives of any of these individuals.”
