Katherine and Kids Need Money -- STAT!
Posted Jul 23rd 2009 1:30PM by TMZ Staff
Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate, along with Katherine Jackson's lawyer, went to court this morning, seeking temporary financial allowances -- and Katherine claims she needs the money to live.
The matter was put off until August 3, when lawyers will all appear in court.
UPDATE: 2:29 PM PT: Lawyers for the estate wrote in a written declaration, "We are informed that Mrs. Jackson was also financially dependent upon Michael Jackson and that other than extremely modest social security benefits, Mrs. Jackson has no independent means of support."
The declaration continues: "Michael Jackson died 4 weeks ago. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the Special Administrators to be authorized to pay family allowance for the benefits of Minor Children in order to ensure that the Minor Children's needs for maintenance and support are met."
The document also says other than social security benefits which the kids have not yet received, they are totally dependent on the estate for their care and support. Katherine and Kids Need Money -- STAT! | TMZ.com
