Parsing Michael Jackson’s Will

Hope Joe Jackson wasn’t hoping to earn any more money from his son, Michael: According to The Wall Street Journal, the 2002 will believed to be Michael’s last completely left out his father. The draft leaves Jackson’s estate to his children, mother, and one or two charities. There are believed to be one or two other versions of the will in circulation, and in court, Jackson’s parents argued he died without a valid will.
