More Problems Surrounding Michael Jackson's Estate

Images-13Janet Jackson put down a $40,000 deposit at Forest Lawn to secure a burial spot for Michael Jackson, but she would not let the funeral proceed until that money was repaid.  

On the night of Michael's death, Talon Executive services, a private-security company, was dispatched to his house.  They report that La Toya and her boyfriend showed up at the house shortly after he died demanding access into the house because they were family.  Shortly after their arrival, Katherine Jackson followed suit.  While within the home, Katherine Jackson called Grace Rwaramba, the former nanny to Michael's children, to ask her where Michael hid the cash at his house.  Talon reports that they saw La Toya and her boyfriend loading black plastic garbage bags into duffle bags and then putting them into the garage.  La Toya, however, insists that almost all of Michael's money was gone by the time she arrived at Michael's house. 

Also, as I previously blogged about, there were rumors that Katherine Jackson was kidnapped.  To read more about her side of the story, please click here.
