Jackson Estate Lawyers Seek Allowance For Children

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Attorneys handling Michael Jackson's estate say they have asked a judge to approve an allowance for the singer's three children and his mother.

The request came Thursday morning from attorneys for two men who are serving as temporary executors of Jackson's estate. Paul Gordon Hoffman, an attorney representing the co-executors, said a judge will consider the requests Aug. 3.

A similar request was brought for the pop icon's mother, Katherine Jackson, which will also be taken up at next month's hearing. It was still unclear how much the children or their grandmother would receive.

Katherine Jackson currently has custody of the three children, 12-year-old Michael Joseph Jr., known as Prince Michael; 11-year-old Paris Michael Katherine Jackson; and 7-year-old Prince Michael II, known as Blanket.

The four are the main beneficiaries of Jackson's estate, but require the approval of a judge to collect any payments from it. Thursday's request would presumably help cover their expenses until the estate payments are sorted out, which could take several months or more.

Attorneys had hoped to get a hearing before Judge Micthell Beckloff on Thursday, but the judge decided to hold off until the Aug. 3 hearing, when numerous issues concerning the estate will be decided.

Burt Levitch, an attorney for Katherine Jackson, said there was no opposition to the motion brought by the co-administrators, attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain.

The motions brought Thursday were not immediately available.
