Michael Jackson: Where There's a Will, There's a Way to Snub Your Dad

Michael Jackson: Where There's a Will, There's a Way to Snub Your Dad-photo

Sounds like Michael Jackson is giving his dad the royal screw-job from beyond the grave.

The Wall Street Journal reports that a will that the singer drafted in 2002—believed to be the most recent will for the singer, who died last Thursday at the age of 50—"isn't believed" to include his father, Joe Jackson.

Instead, the will is said to divide Jackson's estate between his mother Katherine, his three children, and one or more charities.

Though Jackson had financial troubles in recent years—and died with approximately $500 million in debt—it's estimated that his assets exceed his debt by as much as $200 million, and the massive sales of Jackson's music since his passing is likely to increase that amount. 

L. Londell McMillan, a lawyer for Jackson's parents, tells the newspaper, "No will has been presented to family or us. We will review any will when we see it."

No doubt that there'll be some contesting to do if Joe Jackson was, indeed, left out of the document! 

In the meantime, have your say in the comments section: Do you think it was right of Michael Jackson to leave his father out of his will?

    i agree joe jackson should go somewhere and dig a hole and crawl in it he treated michael like he wasn't even his son how can a father do that to his own child he constantly talked about his big nose and his acne when he was in his most vulnerable age adolesence he is the reason michael was so mixed up right on michael he doesn't deserve anything he took enough from him when he was alive rR.I.P MICHAEL

    Michael had the right to do whatever he chose with his assets. A will is very persona;,and no one has the right to dispute it. may he rest in peace in the Lord

    Joe Jackson looks like an old clown in his old age with that earring in his ear. Looking at his body language it it very obvious that he cares nothing about Micheal's death. Looking at him one can clearly see why Michael was afraid of him I am glad Michael did not leave him anything. He has very bad energy coming from him, my hope is that he does not get near Michael's kids. God is going to punish him for trying to promote his company and riding on the back of Michael's death.

    I agree and i could not have said it better... l hope that he was left out. Joe was the source of all Michael's demons. He was a ruthless callous man, and he made the Jackson 5 what they were out of his own ambition, not for the good of his sons. On top of all that, he was unfaithful to Katherine. All this was too much for the young Michael. Add to that physical abuse and missing out on any kind of childhood, and u have a very unhappy human being. Michael struggled with his demons his entire life. And even in death, Joe continues to embarrass him by selling his record label when his attention should be on his son. What a disgrace he is. Shame on you Joe Jackson!

    rumors say his father was very strict. all he cared about was making money and all he cared about was fame and making michael famous. THINK ABOUT IT...MAYBE IF IT WASNT FOR HIS FATHER HE WOULDNT BE WHO HE WAS...
