Pop Legend Michael Jackson’s Estate Struck By Creditor’s Claim
Michael Jackson's estate has been hit by yet another creditor's claim - from an entertainment company allegedly hired to develop the singer's various ventures.
Bosses at Machine Management allege they are owed $285,000 after they helped the late King of Pop create his own film company.
They also claim to have worked on setting up an environmental campaign for the star, the Michael Jackson Global Warning Awareness Initiative, as well as a film festival in Oman.
Lawyer for Jackson's estate, Howard Weitzman, has told the website he is aware of the claim and will be looking into it.
Other creditors' claims against the Thriller hitmaker's estate have reportedly exceeded $20 million, they include various legal challenges from Jackson's spiritual adviser Reverend June Juliet Gatlin, his former skin doctor Arnold Klein, choreographer LaVelle Smith Jr. and the pop superstar's one-time manager and adviser Dr. Tohme.
