Jermaine may have dropped out of the battle but Janet Jackson and her sister Rebbie and brother Randy continue to contest the validity of their brother’s will and released a statement late Friday.
Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie’s principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of Michael’s children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family. Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael’s estate “” John Branca and John McClain, the estate’s lawyer Howard Weitzman, and those installed and paid to do their bidding.
The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received preposterous reports “” all now proven to be false “” of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child. The executors and their agents also recently issued a notice barring Janet, Randy and Rebbie from visiting their 82 year old mother and Michael’s children. The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael’s will.
