A couple weeks ago, I wrote how Katherine Jackson had a surprising “change of heart” by dropping her challenge to the executors for Michael’s estate. In fact, her husband Joe Jackson was shocked — his lawyer called the move “despicable”.
Well, if this exclusive report from the United Kingdom website News of the World is accurate, we now know why Katherine did so.
According to this report (which has been picked up by MSN Entertainment along with other websites), Katherine made the deal because the executors, John Branca and John McClain, had agreed to add a trusted family member as a third executor. And, even better, this new executor would have veto power over decisions of Branca and McClain.
So who is the trusted family member? Taj — Tariano Adaryll Jackson, Michael’s 36-year old nephew and Tito Jackson’s son. He is reportedly very close to Michael’s children and mother, and was Michael’s favorite nephew. He’ll be able to give the family a voice.
This explanation makes a lot of sense.
