(Newser) – Michael Jackson left his brothers, sisters, and father zip in his will…but gave his three children $33 million each. Prince, Paris, and Blanket (ages 13, 12, and 8) will have some access to the trust fund money starting at 21. By the time they can freely access a third of their share, at 30, they could each be worth as much as $300 million—and half a billion by age 40, when they get full access, News of the World reports.

Jackson left 40% of his $300 million estate to his children, 40% to his mother, and 20% to charity. Family insiders find it “strange” that even sisters Michael was close to were left out—and that mother Katherine has not yet received her $99 million. A source says there are “many mistakes,” like spelling errors, and “the family are staggered that Michael signed—or even agreed to” the will.
