Katherine Jackson wants a big send-off for Joe

Sources close to the family allegedly told Radar online on Friday that Joe Jackson was not listed in his late son, "King of Pop" Michael Jackson's will. This means that MJ's estate is not obligated to pay for his father's final expenses. The disagreement among the family comes at a hard time.

Part of the family wants Joe Jackson to have a large and lavish send-off; however, the burden of the expense will fall on the children's shoulders, and they are refusing to pay the bill.

The family informant reveals that Katherine, Jermaine, and Latoya are all for the big funeral, however, they have asked the rest of the family to pitch in and pay, and they have said no.

It is said to be a messy situation, with everyone fighting over the details.

Joe Jackson has been in declining health for several years. The Jackson family patriarch was injured in 2017 in a car accident. He has also suffered from various medical conditions in recent years including dementia, strokes, and a heart attack.
