MJ’s siblings question Michael’s will’s authenticity
London: Michael Jackson`s siblings have fired off a letter demanding the immediate resignation of the superstar`s estate executors claiming that the administrators faked the document before the singer`s death on 25 June, 2009 to gain control of his finances.
According to Celebuzz.com, the letter signed by Jacksons`` was sent to John Branca and John McClain on Tuesday, stating that the Thriller icon’s will was flawed, the Daily Express reported.
“At the time we couldn`t possibly fathom what is so obvious to us now: that the Will, without question, it`s fake, flawed and fraudulent..,” the letter said.
“Since the passing of Michael, our beloved brother, you have failed to perform your duties as executors of his estate, but what you have not failed at is taking advantage of a grieving mother, father and a grieving family.
“Our brother told us, in no uncertain terms and without hesitation in the months prior to his death, that he despised both of you and that he did not want either of you to have anything to do with his life or estate for that matter."
The missive also accused the executors of increasing their own income from the estate, thereby robbing Jackson`s three children and his elderly mother Katherine of their inheritances.
The pop legend’s brother Randy Jackson took to Twitter.com on Tuesday to apparently comment on the matter.
"Yes, the letter is authentic,” he said.
"We ask that everyone respects that this is a serious matter that will be handled by the proper authorities,” he added.
