Michael Jackson's mother and temporary administrator of his estate is in possession of a will Jackson drew up three weeks before he died.
The will was handed over to Katherine Jackson by Michael's attorney John Branco today. Jackson had a net worth of $200 million when he died of a heart attack last Thursday.
In the will, Michael left everything to his mother and the three children he raised as his own. Jackson's father, who forced his children to call him "Joseph" all their lives, gets nothing.

Michael Jackson's older brother Jermaine Jackson was spotted outside a yogurt shop yesterday sporting a cool throwback vintage Jackson 5 jersey.
Meanwhile, Debbie Rowe's attorney is disputing reports that she is not the biological mother of the three children Michael Jackson raised as his own.
She says Rowe's eggs were fertilized by donor sperm in a process called in vitro fertilization (IVF). I believe her. The two oldest kids look just like her. She couldn't deny them if she tried.
And Michael's former producer Quincy Jones tells ETonline.com he won't be attending the funeral
circus for Michael at Neverland Ranch on July 3. "I won't go to any more funerals as long as I live... I can't handle it," he says.
Y'all going to learn to listen to your auntie when I tell you something.
According to TMZ.com, the three children raised by Michael Jackson as his own are not his biologicals. It should have been obvious just by looking at them, but I guess some people need a lot more convincing.
Surprisingly, Debbie Rowe is not the biological mother of the children either. All three children were conceived in vitro -- outside the womb.
Michael Jackson was not the biological father of any of his children. And Debbie Rowe is not the biological mother of the two kids she bore for Michael. All three children were conceived in vitro -- outside the womb.
Multiple sources deeply connected to the births tell us Michael was not the sperm donor for any of his kids. Debbie's eggs were not used. She was merely the surrogate, and paid well for her services in the births of Michael Jr. and Paris.
In the case of Prince Michael II (the youngest), we're told the surrogate was never told of the identity of the "receiving parent" -- Michael Jackson. Three days after Prince was born at Grossmont Hospital in San Diego County, Jackson's lawyer came to the hospital to pick the baby up and deliver him to Michael.
A California judge today granted Katherine Jackson's petition for temporary custody of the three children her late son, pop icon Michael Jackson, raised as his own.
Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe, biological mother of the two eldest children, was served with a notice. A hearing is set for next Monday, according to TMZ.com.
The petition stated Debbie Rowe had no relationship with the children.
Meanwhile, a lawyer who was terminated from Jackson's employ in 2006, suddenly popped back up three weeks ago. Attorney John Branca claims to be in possession of Jackson's last will and testament, and he plans to file the will in court in 30 days.
According to TMZ.com, Jackson's parents Katherine and Joseph Jackson aren't aware of any such will. Katherine filed a petition to be named administrator of Jackson's estate. In the petition, Katherine Jackson stated her son had no will.
