Michael Jackson - Katherine Jackson Not Selling Family Home After All

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Michael Jackson's mother has decided against selling the family compound in Encino, California and she has withdrawn a legal petition requesting permission to offload the property.
Estate executors for the King of Pop filed documents in a Los Angeles court earlier this month (Sep11) on behalf of Katherine Jackson, after she expressed a desire to get rid of the sprawling mansion, which was valued at over $4 million (£2.5 million) at the time of her son's death.
But the Jackson family matriarch has since had a change of heart and Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for the estate, withdrew the bid during a court hearing on Wednesday (28Sep11).
However, the judge presiding over the case did approve Katherine's plans to buy a new house. According to Tmz.com, she is looking to purchase the home she's currently renting in Calabasas for her and Jackson's three children, Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket.
Katherine's decision to keep the Encino estate comes as her late son Michael's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray stands trial for involuntary manslaughter. He has pleaded not guilty to charges he administered the fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol that cost Jackson his life in June, 2009.
The trial began on Tuesday (27Sep11).

I'm pleased that Katherine has decided against selling the Encino home. It would be awful for all those memories to be lost to the Jackson family and Michael's children.
