Michael Jackson estate 'to support mother'

Executors of Michael Jackson's estate said the late pop star had provided full financial support to his mother when he was alive and his estate should continue to do so after his death, The Los Angeles reported Sunday.

The daily newspaper said that in court papers filed Thursday, the administrators of the estate asked for approval to pay a monthly allowance to Katherine Jackson, 79.

The specific amount requested was not disclosed, the report said.

"The special administrators are informed and believe that Mrs. Jackson has no other sources of income currently available other than Social Security income," lawyers for administrators John Branca and John McClain wrote in the filing, according to the paper.

Jackson's mother is caring for her son's three children, and the administrators requested an additional monthly allowance for them.

According to the court papers, the Jackson children are beneficiaries of an insurance policy "but the insurance proceeds have not yet been collected," the Times said.

The allowances are among the issues Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff is to take up at a hearing August 3, said the paper.
