Michael's siblings get cut out of the will again

It has just been revealed that the 40% stake in Michael Jackson's estate left to his mother Katherine Jackson will revert to his three children upon her death. That means Jermaine "Word To The Bad", LaToya "Michael Did It", Randy "Just Sign These Papers", Joe "Don't Make Me Use This Belt", and the rest of the clan won't be able to get their hands on any of the money.

Randy told TMZ "The family is fine with it. Who cares about the money? We have enough money. If I cared about the money, I'd be doing a reality show and doing interviews." are we not counting that new Jackson 5 reality show or any of the interviews he's done since June?

"This Is It": This Is Mine

Songwriter/producer "Paul Anka" has reached an agreement with Michael Jackson's estate over the newly released single "This Is It." Anka claims he and Michael co-wrote the song in the 1980's and Michael recorded it in 1991 during his sessions for his Dangerous album. According to Anka, the song was also recorded by a singer named Safire in 1991 and released as "I Never Heard." Producers have arranged at least three versions of the song, the original, a version with Michael's brothers singing backup, and an orchestral arrangement. The latter two will be included on the two-disc companion set for the film This Is It.

Under the terms of the agreement, Anka received an official apology for his omission from the writing credits for the song and he will share in 50% of the publishing rights; Anka, himself, called the omission "an honest mistake" shortly after claiming estate special administrator John McClain told him, "Now we know why the song was so good ... it wasn't the type of Michael Jackson song that he could write." Excuse me?
