1. JACKSON SIBLINGS CLAIM MICHAEL'S WILL IS FAKE

In a letter dated July 18, five of Michael Jackson's siblings, including Jermaine and Janet, allege that his will is fake, as only his mother, Katherine, and his three children, Paris, Prince and Blanket, are named in it. They also claim the estate's executors, John Branca and John McClain, manipulated the will to their benefit and are taking advantage of Katherine. "This is not about money for us … They are trying to turn family members against family members," Michael's brother Randy tells Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC's PoliticsNation.
