Tito Jackson retracts his signature from Jackson-family letter.
The Jackson family saga continues, and Michael Jackson’s oldest brother Tito Jackson is saying he no longer wants anything to do with the drama.
“I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother Michael’s estate and repudiate all the claims made against them,” Tito said in a statement. “I don’t want any part of that letter whatsoever.”
Tito is referencing a letter signed by his siblings Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie Jackson accusing the executors, John Branca and John McClain, of exploiting Michael’s three children, faking his will and stressing out their mother, Katherine.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Randy claims that Michael was in New York the day his will was supposedly signed in Los Angeles. “He cannot be in two places at one time,” Randy said, “He did not sign that will,” he added, blaming executors Branca and McClain of crafting a plot to turn their family members against each other.
Branca and McClain responded to the allegations saying they are saddened by the false and defamatory accusations but are most concerned about protecting Micheal’s children from “undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances.”
Tito’s son, 34-year-old TJ Jackson, is currently working to obtain temporary guardianship of 15-year-old Prince, 14-year-old Paris and 10-year-old Blanket, reports TMZ.
