Jackson Mum, Children Get $86,000 per Month

Friday, 18 Sep 2009 06:53 AM

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson's mother and children are receiving more than 86,000 dollars every month from the late pop star's estate, according to court documents.

Under allowances approved by Los Angeles Superior Court judge Mitchell Beckloff, Jackson's mother Katherine is paid a monthly sum of 26,000 dollars while the singer's three children receive 60,000 dollars.

The allowances were confirmed at a hearing in August but the amounts were only disclosed on Thursday.

The administrators of Jackson's estate had requested a special allowance for the star's mother, noting that the 79-year-old's only other source of income was her pension.

Jackson, 50, died on June 25 after consuming a lethal cocktail of powerful prescription drugs. His death is being treated as a homicide.

Jackson, one of the most influential figures in pop music history whose four-decade career included the highest-selling album of all-time, "Thriller," had been preparing for a July concert comeback at the time of his death.
