Michael Jackson’s mother receiving $1m a month to bring up his children

Details of monies from singer's estate revealed

Michael Jackson‘s mother will receive $1m (£606,000) a year from the singer’s estate to help raise his children.

A Los Angeles judge approved a $26,804 a month payment for Katherine Jackson and $60,000 to support Prince Michael, Paris Michael Katherine and Prince Michael II, known as ‘Blanket’.

According to BBC News, the decision was made in August but has been kept secret until now.

Following Michael Jackson‘s death in June, his children have lived with their grandmother in Los Angeles after she was granted permanent guardianship.
