Randy Jackson: Feud not about money

Los Angeles - Randy Jackson says his family's battle against the Michael Jackson Estate is not about money.

The late star's brother spoke out for the first time on Tuesday about the drama which so far has involved their mother Katherine Jackson joining her daughter Rebbie in Arizona and Michael's children Prince, Paris and Blanket in the middle of a guardianship battle.

He told MSNBC's Rev Al Sharpton on PoliticsNation: "Let me just say this. This is not about money for us.

"This is about a family that has questions that has lost a family member and we feel the evidence is right there that my brother was not in Los Angeles on the date they swore that he was.

"He was in New York so therefore the will is fake, and they cannot answer the questions and they are trying to turn family members against family members."

Isolate herself from outside world

The children's court-appointed attorney, Margaret Lodise, will be asking a judge to strip Katherine of guardianship of the children because she has been out of town for more than a week, according to website RadarOnline.

She believes they aren't safe following a physical altercation with Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson.

Randy said: "My mom is doing great. She's relaxing, having fun with my sister Rebbie and her granddaughter.

"Her health was ailing and doctors ordered that she get immediate rest, isolate herself from outside world." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
