In an effort to get Mama Katherine Jackson to cover his 2017 legal fees in her now-dismissed elder abuse case against him, her nephew (in-law), Trent Jackson, let all of the cats outta the bag.
Trent — whom Mrs. Jackson fired as her driver and banned from her home a few years ago — revealed how much of Michael Jackson’s estate earnings the Jackson family matriarch reportedly told him she pays her kids to cover their monthly expenses.
His court doc statements were slightly surprising. Why? Because according to Trent, it is only a few of MJ’s siblings that are supposedly being taken care of by his estate, and not the whole fam’…at least not on paper.
The Amount Of Money MJ’s Siblings Allegedly Get
See the details below of what Trent had to say in his previous last-ditch effort to get money from Mama Katherine [via TMZ]:
Trent Jackson wants Katherine to cover the expenses he incurred while defending himself against her claims of elder abuse. In new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — he says Katherine told him she receives a $67,000 monthly stipend from Michael Jackson’s estate, which she doles out to some of her kids to support them and their families.
In the docs, Trent says Katherine told him she gave $12,000/month to Jermaine Jackson … $7,000/mo. to Rebbie Jackson … $30,000/mo. to La Toya Jackson … and $9,850/mo. toward a rental in Calabasas where Jermaine and Randy Jackson’s kids stay. That adds up to $58,850 … almost all of her stipend.
Trent says in light of that kind of spending, Katherine can afford to pay his attorneys, Ron Rale and Philip Cohen, the more than $58,000 in fees for dragging him into court on a case that was ultimately thrown out. Btw, Trent still believes Katherine’s kids coerced her into filing the case.
For the record, the case was actually dismissed after Katherine told the judge that she wanted to postpone the trial date, due to not being preparedto withstand the demands of the trial and the drama that comes with it. Trent is reportedly also still fired and not welcomed in her home, as far as we know.
Katherine claimed that Trent abused her by keeping her secluded from her children, wire tapping her home to monitor her moves, stealing money from her bank account and businesses, and denying her medical attention when she once believed she was having a heart attack or stroke. The bright side for Trent is that by Mama Katherine allowed her lawsuit to be dropped, he may have dodged a bullet. Therefore, some would argue that it’s probably wise for him to just leave well enough alone…if he hasn’t already done so.
