Michael Jackson kids' Given a $8M a Year Allowance

https://ca.shine.yahoo.com/blogs/parenting/michael-jackson-kids-given-8m-allowance-200400744.html

(Newser) - As Michael Jackson's estate grows in value, the yearly allowance his children Prince, 17, Paris, 16, and Blanket, 12, share has increased from $5 million to $8 million-and it sounds like they take full advantage of it.

Michael Jackson Estate Has Big Plans for King of Pop's Vaults

By STEVE KNOPPER | Jun 9, 2014 AT 10:00AM

Michael Jackson's estate managed to bring the late star back to life, sort of, with an unnerving onstage pseudo-hologram at May 18th's Billboard Music Awards – and that's just the beginning of its ambitious plans for his career, which could include as many as eight more albums culled from outtakes and repackaged material. "We got more surprises coming," says producer Rodney Jerkins, who worked on the newest posthumous release, Xscape.

The only problem may be soft demand for "new" Jackson music. Despite decent reviews and a single that guest-starred Justin Timberlake, Xscape stalled at Number Two, with a big second-week drop. "After a while, a certain part of the audience stops listening," says Dan Beck, a former Epic Records exec who worked closely with Jackson.

Despite these hiccups, Jackson is the highest-grossing dead star in the world, as of 2013. The estate has earned $600 million since his death in 2009, thanks to lucrative projects such as Cirque du Soleil's Immortal tour and a reported $250 million deal with Sony Music for the new albums. "They've done a very good job – think of how dysfunctional it could be," Beck says. "We may not like particular elements of it, but Michael made the music, and they've kept that going."

Xscape was a major improvement over the estate's first posthumous album, 2010's Michael. The latest project took shape in early 2013, when Antonio "L.A." Reid, Epic's chairman, met with John Branca, Jackson's attorney and the estate's co-executor, to present a movie concept. Branca instead invited Reid, a veteran producer who worked with Jackson in the late Eighties, to comb the vaults. When Reid found "Love Never Felt So Good," a Thriller-era demo Jackson had written with crooner Paul Anka, he "realized he had elements of a hit album," says Scott Seviour, an Epic executive vice president. Reid asked several top producers to freshen up the songs and deputized Timbaland to oversee the project.

"Slave to the Rhythm," which Reid, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and their team wrote and produced circa 1991's Dangerous, was the foundation for Jackson's May 18th "performance" – a CGI King of Pop singing and moonwalking, made lifelike through a 19th-century illusion called Pepper's Ghost. The show divided Jackson's friends and family – his brother Jackie said it moved him to tears, but his makeup artist Karen Faye tweeted, "It is a criminal violation to enslave another person."

Fans should expect an even deeper excavation of the singer's vaults in the coming years. Estate reps wouldn't say how many songs are in usable form, but Jackson was famous for overrecording. "It was frequent that Michael would record songs and put them on the shelf," says Matt Forger, his longtime engineer. After Jackson's death, Tommy Mottola, Sony Music's former CEO, suggested the singer worked up 20 to 30 songs for each album; Epic's Seviour estimates "tens and twenties" are still in the vault. "I'm sure there are a few more great things out there," says Jerkins, "and, hopefully, we'll all have a chance to hear them."

This is from the June 19th, 2014 issue of Rolling Stone.

Michael Jackson Kids' Are Given a $8M a Year Allowance

Paris Jackson(Newser) - As Michael Jackson's estate grows in value, the yearly allowance his children Prince, 17, Paris, 16, and Blanket, 12, share has increased from $5 million to $8 million-and it sounds like they take full advantage of it.

Page Six talks to sources including former Jackson friend Marc Schaffel, who's now engaged to Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe, for details on how the kids spend their money:

-Prince has spent more than $50,000 on custom-made jewelry for three of his girlfriends, plus $40,000 on a new Ford pick-up truck. He wants to save enough money to buy back his father's Neverland Ranch, currently in control of creditors with an asking price of $35 million.

-Paris also likes to buy gifts for friends, including shoes and athletic gear. The annual cost for her to stay at a therapeutic boarding school, following last year's suicide attempt, is also in the six figures.

-Blanket likes to take his cousins to dinners at expensive restaurants; their nights out, which also include trips to the movies, typically come to about $500 plus tips. He also spends $200 an hour for karate lessons and a personal trainer.

The kids also take three vacations a year, totaling $350,000 including first-class airfare and security-in Hawaii, they stay in a $5,500-per-night suite; in Vegas, they sometimes rent the Bellagio's penthouse suite, which can cost as much as $5,000 per night.

Even so, "they're not [as bad] as their father" when it comes to spending wildly, one source says. Sources recall crazy stories about MJ, including the time Elizabeth Taylor pointed out jewels she liked in a catalog and Jackson sent two members of his security team on a private jet to Switzerland to buy them. He also spent $90,000 to impress Macaulay Culkin, sources say. Once, he took Culkin "on this expensive gondola-like ride along the ocean and buys Mac's caretaker an expensive necklace and sends her shopping just so he could spend time with him," a source says.

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

It's a good read. I found the bodyguards to be candid, respectful and honest. Reading the book made me sad because it really made you realize how isolated and lonely MJ was. What a sad way to live. There were things that made me laugh or smile but mainly I was saddened by how alone he was and how unhappy he seemed. Financial issues, he was always being sued. He didn't have contact with anyone in his family for the most part-only his Mother.

I was also surprised to learn that MJ really wasn't interested in making music to release anymore. That's what it seemed like. He didn't even want to do "Thriller 25" but just did it cause he owed SONY. It was just a quick way to make money and pay some of his never ending debts.

What a stressful, unhappy life he seemed to lead. I'm surprised really he even lasted as long as he did. I am glad tho that he had his kids. That seemed to be the one bright spot in his life.
"And When The Groove Is Dead And Gone, You Know That Love Survives, So We Can Rock Forever" RIP MJ heart

"Baby, that was much too fast"...Goodnight dear sweet Prince. I'll love you always heart
