Micheal Jackson fans are up in arms over a letter circulating on the Internet that appears to be signed by several Jackson siblings, including Janet and Jermaine, threatening legal action against the executors of his estate.
In the letter, five Jackson siblings accuse executors John McClain and John Blanca of fraud and abuse of their mother, Katherine Jackson.
“THIS HAS TO STOP NOW; NO MORE!!” the letter reads. “Before we hit the stage, we were a family and still to this day we are a family. We’re not going to let anyone abuse our mother, nor will we tolerate any further attempts to divide us.”
The letter, signed additionally by Rebbie, Tito and Randy Jackson, suggested that Katherine Jackson recently suffered a “mini-stroke” as a result of the longtime dispute between the executors and members of the family.
Her attorney disputed that Jackson was in poor health.
“Katherine Jackson is absolutely capable of taking care of the children and does a terrific job,” her attorney, Perry Sanders, said in a statement to ABC News. “I have no reason to think that has changed in any way, shape or form. She does a phenomenal job, is extremely lucid and not having any difficulties of any consequence. It’s unfortunate that anyone would paint Mrs. Jackson as anything but completely lucid and doing a great job with the children.”
