LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Jackson's estate is opposing a bid by the late singer's father to receive a monthly allowance.

Attorneys for estate administrators John Branca and John McClain filed papers opposing Joe Jackson's efforts to get more than $15,000 a month from his son's estate. The filing states Joe Jackson has failed to show that his superstar son supported him while he was alive.

The filings also note that the singer omitted his father as a beneficiary in his will and trust.

Joe Jackson filed for the monthly stipend in November, saying he had little income and relied on his son's help to survive.

His attorney, Brian Oxman, did not immediately return a phone message Friday.
