Michael Jackson's family just will not let his estate rest in peace.
Five of the late pop legend's siblings, including Randy, Jermaine, Tito, and even Janet, are accusing the executors of his estate, John McClain and John Branca, of abusing and defrauding their mother Katherine.
The siblings are saying Branca and McClain helped cause a stroke and are attempting to divide the family. Sources close to the estate are lashing back, saying Jermaine and Randy are strapped for cash and are trying to become their mom’s legal guardians to get closer to the money.
Katherine Jackson's handlers say she's fine, and the King of Pop’s daughter Paris even chimed on Twitter to support that claim. When Katherine dies, Michael’s estate—reportedly worth half a billion dollars after debts are paid—will go to charity and to his three children.
