Michael Jackson cuts father from will

Michael Jackson left his father nothing in his will.

The 50-year-old pop legend - who died after suffering a reported cardiac arrest last Thursday (25.06.09) - left his entire estate to his mother Katherine, three children Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II and several charities, according to a will made in 2002.

America’s prestigious business newspaper the Wall Street Journal reports the will is the last one Michael - who had a troubled relationship with his father and had accused him of physical abuse during his childhood - made.

It is understood Michael’s lawyer John Branca - who stopped working with Michael in 2006 but was reportedly rehired three weeks ago, and who arranged for Michael to buy The Beatles publishing catalogue in 1985 - could hand the document to the Los Angeles Superior Court as early as tomorrow (01.07.09).

Britain’s The Sun newspaper reports the singer - who died after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest in his Los Angeles home - was taking narcotic pain killer Vicodin, muscle relaxant Soma, sedative Xanax, antidepressant Zoloft, anti-anxiety drug Paxil and heartburn pill Priolosec at the time of his death.

Katie Price meets Peter Andre

Katie Price launched into a furious rant at Peter Andre as the couple met for the first time since their split.

The glamour model - also known as Jordan - drove to the ‘Mysterious Girl’ singer’s house in Brighton, Sussex, yesterday (29.06.09) with the couple’s two children, Junior, four, and Princess Tiaamii, two, but was angry when Peter wasn’t there.

Katherine Jackson wins temporary custody

Michael Jackson’s mother has become the temporary guardian of his three children.

Katherine Jackson was granted the order - which sees her caring for Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II - by the Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (29.06.09) but she was denied temporary guardianship of the kids’ estate.

Speaking outside his home in Encino, California, Michael’s father Joe Jackson said: “We’re the parents. This is where they belong. We’re going to take care of them and give them the education they’re supposed to have.”
