Jacko's Mom Gets $1 Million a Year

Michael Jackson's estate has provided handsomely for his children. BBC News reports that Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, will receive more than $1 million each year from the king of pop's estate to support herself and care for Prince Michael, Paris Michael Katherine, and Prince Michael II. Court papers revealed that Jackson's mother will receive $26,804 for herself and $60,000 for the children each month, plus $315,000 per year for domestic help and $160,000 per year for entertainment and other expenses. Katherine wanted to keep payment details private, but the presiding judge said he didn't think the total amount could remain sealed.
