Janet Jackson Tries To Clear Her Name In Jackson Family Drama

Oh, Janet Jackson. We used to really love you as one of our favorite Jackson Family members, but now we’re just not sure what to think. It looks like the “Nasty” singer is doing some damage control here, after her sibling’s plot to overthrow their brother Michael Jackson‘s estate didn’t go as planned. Janet and her sister Rebbie along with her brother Randy believe that Michael’s will is invalid.

Now Janet is speaking up about the whole mess and has even released this statement on her web site. Here’s what it says:

Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy, and Rebbie’s principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and well-being of Michael’s children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family. Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael’s estate…

The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received preposterous reports – all now proven to be false – of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child. The executors and their agents also recently issued a notice barring Janet, Randy, and Rebbie from visiting their 82 year old mother and Michael’s children. The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael’s will.

It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever – they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid… Michael’s children will be the beneficiaries of Michael’s estate. What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of the children, which is what Michael wanted. The individuals who have the most to lose by a finding that the will is invalid are, of course, the executors and those on the executors’ payroll.

Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother Michael.

Honestly, I don’t understand why Janet would involve herself in this scheme. She’s a bit better off than her siblings and it’s not like she really needs the millions, right? What do you guys think?
