You can read Michael Jackson’s will by clicking here.

The will is dated July 7, 2002.

Michael Jackson’s entire estate is given to the Michael Jackson Family Trust.

The will specifically states that nothing goes to his former wife, Deborah Jean Rowe Jackson.

The will specifically states that he has intentionally omitted all of his heirs. Contrary to earlier reports about Michael Jackson cutting out his father, Joe Jackson – Michael cut-out everyone – although it is not yet confirmed what is provided for in the trust.

Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, is to be the guardian of his children. If she cannot, then Diana Ross is asked to be the guardian.

    Dear Rita, Dear All,

    what a lovely comments you have left! so true!
    Im from Poland, loving Michael like crazy since always and feeling so much sympathy for him!
    Polish people also loved Mike so much! Its a shame American people have treted him so badly! I cant believe all this happened, in my opinion, its people who had killed Michael! He was just too sensitive to handle people’s viciousness!
    Love you Michael and I really hope you are having a great life in heaven now. Meet you there one day,

    Polish fan, Joanna Dyrka

    Michael when i was watching the news and heard that you have gone i was shocked and speechless. i couldn’t believe that the one and only king of pop had gone away from our lives so soon. Michael i wish you didn’t do so soon. Even though your gone your memory stays within our hearts forever. Michael i have been crying for days thinking that my idol is gone. I never got the chance to see you in person and that makes me sad forever. But mostly i have an ache in my heart. I miss you so much Micheal. You really are a legendary hero. Rest In Peace Micheal, i love you forever and i always will love and cherish your music. Please come back Micheal……. Goodbye

    MY MEMORIES OF MJ ARE SO MANY.. FROM MY CHILDHOOD LISTENING TO YOU AND TO THIS DAY I AM STILL PLAYING YOUR WONDERFUL MUSIC. THE WORDS IN ALL YOUR SONGS TELL SUCH A DEEP STORY AND HAVE TOUCHED SO MANY PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE. I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT YOU ARE AND WILL BE THE ONLY TRUE “KING OF POP” FOREVER. YOU WILL BE IN MY HEART ALWAYS. ALL YOUR TRUE FANS WILL REMEMBER AND LOVE YOU FOREVER!!! RIP LOVE YOU…<3

    Michael’s death has affected me so much I cannot begin to make friends and family understand my grief for someone I have never met and never spoken to. I have enjoyed Michael’s music for many many years, he is truly a genius. I am sad that this precious life ended this way. I feel it could have been avoided if his bullying father had not stolen his childhood, if his bullying father had treated him like a human being, if his bullying father had built his self esteem and made him proud of himself and his heritage. Maybe he would have been able to look in the mirror and see a perfectly beautiful face attached to a perfectly beautiful body with an awesome gentle soul and be proud of what he saw. His childlike innocence and love for children was just that, innocent. There is absolutely no way he was guilty of the accusations laid against him, this was a ploy to extort money from him. I have looked after friends children over the weekend and they have asked me to get into bed with them and read. To me it was the most perfectly innocent act as it was for Michael. His innocence to me was beautiful. I am sad for his children who will miss out on the unconditional love he had for them but am also glad they are old enough to remember and be proud to be the children of the AMAZING, UNFORGETTABLE , GENIUS, GENTLE, BEAUTIFUL PERSON THAT WAS THEIR FATHER, MICHAEL JACKSON. GONE BUT NEVER NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN.

      I CAN RELATE ALL OF WHAT YOU HAVE SAID, ITS LIKE LOSING A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY AND EVERY WORD YOU HAVE SPOKEN IS NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH 10 OUT OF 10 FOR YOUR EMAIL, I COULDNT AGREE MORE HUN, .

    I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO YOUR MUSIC SINCE I WAS 8, I ADORE YOU SO MUCH. I ADORE YOUR EVERYTHING: VOICE, DANCING, FACE. YOU ARE THE KING OF MUSIC BUT AT THE SAME TIME YOU REMAIN VERY SHY AND MODEST. YOU ARE A GENIUS. YOU ARE NUMBER ONE, MICHAEL. I AM NOT ABLE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE NOT WITH US, FOR ME YOU ARE ALIVE FOREVER. NO ONE CAN BE COMPERED WITH YOU.
    I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU

    Not only did his life inspire me. When I watched his “Memorial Service” Keenly I had a u turn in ma life. I was inspired that taking a leaf from the story of the life of the King of Pop, I learn that If only I can put in the heart and soul the Legend put into his Music then nothing could go wrong in ma legal career. I would blossom

    Great Michael Jackson. Thank God he does not died intestate. I hope the board of trustees grant his wish in the
    Trust document. God bless the children and console the family left behind.
    ADIEU ! JACKO. DEFINITELY YOUR SOUL HAS NOW REST IN PEACE AND AWAY FROM THE MEDIA OBSESSIVE
    INTRUSIVENESS.

  12. NARO says:

    Boss man u is the best it is a shame to see on tv how black people now trying to claim u i see and here some saying the will like to claim u back , u is the best and the king of pop and let it stay that way RIP

  13. Darlene Crumrine says:

    My prayers go out to the entire family of Michael Jackson. Losing a loved one is never easy. Michael is definitely “Gone Too Soon”, and usher did a wonderful job singing this song for Michael. I would encourage Michael’s children to always remember their dad the way he was with them, those intimate moments, bed time stories, conversations, birthday parties… ignore the gossip, listen to your aunts, uncles, and grandpaprents; afterall, they love you, and they loved your dad. Paris, you did a wonderful job speaking from your heart about your father. He would be so proud of you.

  14. Nicole B. Cupp says:

    I think that micheal Jackson’s children should as his will as it states. The mother of Micheal jackson’s children should have supervised visitation. Due to the facts that she doesn’t even know the children.

  15. Nicole B. Cupp says:

    To the choldren of Micheal Jackson. Your father will always love you. And as far as the kids going to the grandmother I think that that is the best idea ever because my grandmother raised me

    i love you so much

  17. Maddy says:

    Michael, When i heard on the news that you were in a coma i thought to myself “Oh god, i hope this doesn’t get any worse”. A few minuted later you were gone right before my eyes. I was shocked and speechless. I didn’t believe….. I couldn’t believe it. Then i had to. Michael i wish you didn’t have to go so soon. I’ve been crying ever since i believed it. Now i can barely watch or listen to one of your videos without a tear rolling down my neck then dripping on to my lap. I miss you so much. It’s just so hard to believe that my one and only hero is gone, and at a young age. Michael, the world is changing without you, god, the is changing because of you. That breaks my heart. Michael you changed the world and made yourself into a legendary hero. Please come back i love you to much. You had a lot of talent. Your memory still is engraved at the bottom of my heart forever… i love you forever. Rest in Peace Micheal and Goodbye……………Gone too Soon

  18. Wallk says:

    Hnmmmmmmm, Hooooooooooooooo, tears roll down my cheek each time i see any of your pics, watch any of your videos, or read any of your articles. MJ i still dont believe that you are GONE. Obviously, there is no Replacement for you. You are UNIQUE and can’t be replicated. I love you so much for your singular efforts to remove the barriers. You give everybody sense of belonging. You Lived a meaningful life. God created you for a purpose which you were able to accomplish within that short time frame. YOU are celebrated all over the world. REST IN PEACE MJ…….

  20. Lysa says:

    I don’t know how to start , let’s say thirst that we all miss you , but you already know that. We love you , and will always love you. You are not the king of pop , you are the king of music , the king of every person in the world, the best entertainer ever. Your music will never die and you will live in our harts for ever. I’m sorry that some people laughed of you and some criticized you. And the people who said all these fake stories about you should be ashamed. I don’t know if you were happy in this cruel world, but i hope that you are happy now. Rest in peace Michael, we are blessed that we lived in you’re time.Goodbye Michael , rest in peace and God bless you!

    It is really sad, that lot’s of people misunderstand Michael, he was not only world’s greatest artist, but also a gift of God, he was doing such great work for the children in need and more!! Michael was a pure loving man. For the first time he was in Holland, his beautiful SMILE was blowing me away. Michael rest in peace and dance and smile forever. My thoughts go out to your children,mother, brothers and sisters. Your really “Gone to Soon” !

  30. Debbie Drake says:

    Special prayers go out to Michael’s children. Let the children speak. Who do they feel would be the best care giver as long as Debbie Rowe does not get custody? She has not been there as a mother for her children. She gave them away a long time ago. Michael’s wishes for his mother to be guardian is fine but, that does not always mean physical custody. These children need to have a childhood of a life and sorry but, Grandma is just too old to give them the chilhood attention they need at this time of loss. Michael Jackson is and will always be one of my favorites. Take care Jackson children!

    It is sad to have lost a great singer and performer like Michael Jackson, but God has His own plan for him, for us all people in this complicated world.
    May you rest in peace Michael. You will always be alive in this world through your great performances/songs playing all around the world. God bless you, and your beautiful children!_Minerva, from the Philippines

  33. Cynthia says:

    I’m really speachless and sad…I’m originaly lebanese born in montreal. My father grew up to Micheal Jackson. He was following every step of MJ’s life. He loved him like his own brother…I remember my dad telling everyone that they we born in the same year, few days apart and had the same horoscope! He would always talk about Micheal Jackson like if he knew him for years. All that to say, we love Micheal Jackson, i’ve always listened to his songs and will always do. I cried the day he died, it broke my heart and some don’t understand why. MJ was a true man, he had a big heart and alot of love. His songs helped me threw hard times. He was innocent, carring, loving, generous, warm. He was a hero, he did everything right.
    We love you MJ, you will always be in my heart. You are my King. We’ll miss you… May God bless your family.
    Rest in peace.

  34. Anna says:

    People have killed him and ruined his life. Yes there are many celebrities, but people will choose a person who is sensitive and bullxhit about them. I feel sorry for Michael that he did not find peace on earth. God will keep a hand on him now.
    I can name another celebrity that people bullxhit about now. It is Britney Spears. People just do not want to leave her alone. They know that she is sensitive. I hope it is not too late..
    Love your work Michael, you have done great.
    Rest in peace and reunite with your loved ones someday!

  35. Liesbeth says:

    I’m still moaning for your death, dear Michael. I grew up with you and your music, you were only 4 years older than me… You’ve gone too soon… You had a tough life and never got the space and possibility to live your life as you would wish… You could never enjoy time with your kids in public because there were always, always people bothering you and didn’t give you precious moments in public for yourself… You could never enjoy the simple things of life like a unknown person. Your life must have been so hard, and eventhough you have 3 lovely children I’m very sure that you were lots of times very, very lonely… That breaks my heart, dear Michael. You deserved so much more! You had a great vision about our world and you achieved such great things, nobody will ever be compared with you, because you were one of a kind. There can only be one Michael Jackson, and the whole world will never forget you and your legacy. Rest in Peace, dear Michael… we WILL try to heal the world! I’ll never forget you and you will be always in my heart. You will never be forgotten. XXX

    I’m sad that Michael Jackson is gone. I couldn’t believe it until today.

Now yes he did some peculiar things to us but come on do u really think talking about him made it better? How would u feel if u were so famous u cant do normal things like go shopping with ur friends hell even go to walmart without bein trampled by a mob hello. I understand him his fame was so great he could never live a normal life and u people talk s**$ about him like he was nothing how rude. Nobody has the right to judge.
