Michael Jackson clothing is headed to a store near you -- at some point.
Yesterday a judge approved deals to let Michael estate administrators market an MJ clothing brand and other types of merchandise -- but the plan hit a snag when Katherine Jackson objected.
Michael's mom didn't so much object to the use of her son's name to sell this stuff, she's apparently just not too keen on the details on the deal -- and the split of the profits. Katherine's attorney says this isn't just about the money, though -- it's about protecting Michael's legacy.
But Katherine's hold on the memorabilia deal could cost everyone a ton of cash (the goal is to have the clothing and etc. come out at the same time as the film AEG has put together of Michael's last rehearsals and what-not).
"I see the delay as a real problem for the estate, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff. "She doesn't own the property," the judge said in reference to Katherine's request for authority to sign off on the final deal. "There's no reason to make her a signatory to those agreements."
Katherine's peeps said their goal is to show that "not only can more money be generated, but that the legacy can be better protected."
In other Michael news, Dr. Conrad Murray may be getting smacked with a wrongful-death suit by MJ's mom. But Katherine's lawyer said it's "premature" to discuss details.
There's your MJ update for the day.
