Michael Jackson

Sued by Former Flack

5/6/2009 5:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who used to speak for Michael Jackson when he got sued ... is now suing him -- joining the long line of people who claim they were stiffed by the King of Pop.

Former Flack
In a statement, Raymone Bain explains, "Mr. Jackson has elected not to honor the financial obligations of our contractual relationship, despite my numerous attempts to amicably resolve this matter. I am sincerely disappointed in Mr. Jackson's failure to honor his obligations."

Bain repped Jackson for many years -- shouldn't she know this is how he rolls?

Calls to Jacko's new people have not been returned.

Story developing ...

Ashley, how old are you? Young I suspect. You always make the jealousy comments especially about the singers and I'm fairly certain about Lindsay too. Anyway, I am indeed a fan of Michaels musical talent as well, period. I'm not a fan of his injustices or that he's gotten away with those injustices because he's managed to pay off the families and the victims.

For some odd reason Bain looks like the Cowardly Lion from the original "Wizzard of Oz"

. The contract with Bain clearly state that she had an agreement with MJ and that she would get 10% fee of any agreements MJ goes into if its generated by, or due to the direct efforts of Ms. Bain or any of her contacts.

And she believes/argues that she was the main force behind his deal with AEG and therefore should get paid for it.

However, her claim of being responsible for his deal with AEG contradicts with the ceo of AEG, because Randy Phillips have said that THEY in 2006 gave Michael a standing offer to do shows. Ms Bain claims that she started to negotiate about shows in 2007.

However, she is also seeking 10% of the proceeds from Thriller 25 sales and from the Sony/ATV refinance. All of this makes 44 million dollars?!
Im pretty sure that MJ hasn't get paid yet by AEG, so how can she claim that amount now? Hmm!

Lawsuits are always exaggerated so the negotiations circles around big bucks! If this goes to court.. she has a lot to prove that she was in fact the one who negotiated the

This woman is really an idiot. Now that they know that there are no kids they can use to sue MJ, thats why these haters are still tryna pull Michael down completely with their falsified sueings. There is one thing you haters always fail to realize that who ever is above you will always be above you.

Im with you Michael and i will always love and continue praying for you.
Love you Matilda.

She is a PR Hog! There was no need to make a video statement and show photos of her and MJ together. Of course, she wouldn't change ever working for him - he gave HER good press! The hair and suit are awful on her. Black women do not have blonde hair! And I cannot even believe she made the statement about rumors on their relationship. You are not his type of black woman that he would be linked to romantically (ie. Shana and Diana Ross or caucasian, Brooke). That will just bring rumors. Well, Ms. Bain I hope you lose because you signed that Payment & Release Agreement and now want millions of dollars. When MJ cut you a check in Dec. 2007 it was just fine with you and now you want to sue him. Too bad he did not uphold his brother Randy decision when he fired you a couple years prior yet MJ gave you another chance. Vulture!
