Katherine Jackson to Challenge Michael's Will

Katherine Jackson has filed new legal papers in a bid to contest her son Michael's will.

In documents filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, the Jackson family matriarch asks the judge in Michael's probate case to allow her to contest certain elements.

The 2002 document, which names Katherine Jackson as an indirect beneficiary of the estate, includes a clause cutting out anyone who disputes the will.

The 79-year-old wants to object to specific elements - reportedly the appointment of longtime financial adviser John Branca and music executive John McClain as executors - without losing her beneficiary rights.

The will reportedly states Katherine will receive 40 percent of Michael's estate, with a further 40 percent going to his kids, Prince Michael, Paris, 11 and "Blanket" with the remaining 20 percent going to a number of as-yet-undecided children's charities.

This could get interesting.
