Katherine Jackson will be in court today to officially be named the legal guardian of Michael Jackson’s three children. News broke last week of Katherine winning the case over Debbie Rowe, but today will make things official.
Her attorney said on Thursday, "We were all united in our goals to do what is best for Michael's wonderful children, and both Mrs. Jackson and Debbie Rowe were on the exact same page.”
Also today, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff is expected to decide who will be permanent executors of the singer's estate. Last month, attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain were made temporary executors. But Katherine’s lawyer Londell McMillan will reportedly fight that today in court as well.
Katherine will reportedly ask for a monthly allowance for herself and the children. Court documents show that Michael had been financially supporting Katherine up until the time of his death.
Katherine’s lawyer says his client should be named co-executor of the estate on the basis that she had been his most trusted business adviser for the past four years.
Meanwhile, Katherine is speaking out about her son's death and is convinced there was nothing "natural" about it. Speaking on Fox News's Geraldo At Large, Katherine said: "All I know is that my son is dead and I don't think he just died of natural causes or whatever.
"He's too young to have that. Something happened. I don't know what it was. And I can't say."
Who do you think should handle the money in Michael’s estate? The two appointed lawyers, or Katherine Jackson?
