Michael Jackson’s Father Tweets “Thanks” to Son’s Executors


Joseph Jackson just posted an unexpected Tweet: “I would like to thank the Estate of Michael Jackson for taking care of my wife Katherine and my grandchildren Prince, Paris and blanket.” …

Huh? Mr. Jackson is not dying, I am assured by sources. “He’s had a change of heart. He’s tired of fighting. He thinks the Estate has done a great job with Katherine and the kids.”

Jackson, who’s in his early 80s, used to say that the Estate and everyone else “killed” Michael. But with the court fights all done, and the fifth anniversary of Michael’s death approaches, wily Joe is ready to make peace with everyone. “He’s getting nicer as he gets older.”

If only that had happened a long time ago.

Anyway, an olive branch to the executors is probably a good idea as Mr. Jackson gets older. He’s going to need their help.
