Washington, Jul 4 (ANI): Late King of Pop Michael Jackson’s exclusion of his father from his will has not been seen as a snub by the singer’s brother Jermaine, who insists Joe will also benefit from the estate.
Jacko had drawn up a will in 2002 in which he left his entire estate to a family trust, comprising of his mother Katherine and his three children.
There was no mention his father, who Jackson claimed had physically abused him and his siblings as a child.
“Joe’s exclusion doesn’t bother me, because if my mother’s mentioned, my father’s fine,” Contactmusic quoted Jermaine as saying.
“I mean, if my mother’s fine, we’re all fine. But most important, it’s not about money. It’s not about property. We’re a family. We don’t let that get in the way. That’s not important to us. That’s not important,” he added.
Joe and Katherine Jackson wed in 1949 but have been separated for years. However, they never filed for divorce.
Joe lives in Las Vegas, while Katherine resides in the family compound in Encino, California. (ANI)
