Michael Jackson -- Lien on Me

8/5/2009 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson -- Lien on MeOpen the floodgates -- the creditors are getting in line for a piece of the action in the Michael Jackson estate case.

Segye Times -- a South Korean newspaper -- won a judgment against Katherine, Joe and Jermaine Jackson, along with the Jackson Record Company, back in 1994. The suit claimed the newspaper paid the family $5.5 million for a series of Jackson family concerts in 1989 that never took place.

A judgment was entered for $4 million. Segye Times now wants $7,865,730.78 -- interest is a bitch!

It's interesting that Michael was not sued personally. Nonetheless, under the category "better late than never," Segye wants the estate to pay up.

Stay tuned...

Judge should dismiss. They should sue Katherine. They have no claim on the estate.

Was Michael signed on to the concert series deal? Maybe it was for the other Jacksons but not MJ.

How skanky can you get? They crawled out of the woodwork when MJ was alive - trying to ride on his gravy train - it hasn't stopped in his death. I hope they get NOTHING, NADDA, ZIP.

I'm sure the judge is going to wonder why they waited until now to collect? And if they won a lawsuit again Katherine, Jermaine, and Joe what does this have to do with Michael's estate? Sounds irrelevant. I don't think they will receive this money.

This unfortunately is just the beginning. Everyone wanted a piece of him when he was alive and it will be much worse in his death. RIP MJ...... Your fans miss you soooo much..... God Bless Prince, Paris & Blanket....

You know, that's robbery, the Jacksons signed the deal, cashed the check, and never did what they said they were going to do. I know it's all legal paperwork and such, but they should be prosecuted just as anyone would who stole 5 million dollars. Essentially that's what they did.

This whole thing is preplex and confounding. I really hope that the truth will prevail.
And I hope these damn buffoons won't even a damn penny.
