Katherine Jackson has not had a role in Michael Jackson's business dealings during the past four years, despite her lawyer saying she did.

That's what a source close to the situation tells exclusively about statements made by Londell McMillan on The Today Show Monday.

"The past four years Michael has demanded and required that she (Katherine) had a seat at the table for any of his major business assets," said McMillan, who represents both Katherine and Joe Jackson.

But that statement is refuted by a close source, who says: "There is absolutely no evidence that Katherine played any role in Michael's business dealings. There has been nothing presented in court that Katherine had any role in Michael's 'business assets' as Londell claimed."

McMillan also indicated the estate's administrators "should have been working together" with him to coordinate requests for cash to be doled out to the Jackson family, including Michael's children. But the source says the estate executors, John Branca and John McClain "asked how much Katherine Jackson, and Michael's three children would need for a monthly allowance. The amount that Katherine requested was agreed upon by the executors without any hesitation. The amount is under court seal and has been redacted from court records."

McMillan has been attempting to help Katherine get control of the estate through various court filings.  Looks like he's not done.
