X17 EXCLUSIVE - Janet Jackson's Attorney Tells X17 The Investigation Into Michael's "Invalid" Will Continues

X17online has exclusively obtained a letter from Janet Jackson's attorney, on behalf of Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson. The letter states that the three siblings will continue investigating the validity of Michael's will.
The letter from attorney Blair G. Brown goes as follows:
- "Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie's principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing 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 - John Branca and John McClain, the estate's lawyer Howard Weitzman, and those installed and paid to do their bidding.
The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received proposterous reports - all now proven to be false - of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child. The exectors 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.
The actions of the executors and those working for them can only be understood in light of the questions about the will raised by Janet, Randy and Rebbie. The executors have never explained how Michael could have signed his will in California on a date that irrefutable evidence establishes he was in New York.
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. That point is worth repeating - 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 his 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."
We've reached out to the executors for comment, but have yet to hear back.
