Michael Jackson’s family is still reviewing the contents of his last will and testament, but can confirm details of the 2002 document:

The deceased pop star left all his assets to the Michael Jackson Family Trust and has named his mother Katherine, 79, as guardian of his children – Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7. Attorney John Branca and John McClain, a music executive, are named as executors.

The will does not list any charities as beneficiaries, nor does it specifically exclude Joe Jackson, Michael’s dad, as had been rumored. “There are no numbers in the will,” says a source familiar with the document. “The assets are going into the family trust.

For privacy reasons, the source cannot name the specific beneficiaries of the trust.
