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...

these people deserve their money.......what was the jacksons doing waiting for michael to die to pay these people back....damn jacksons take money but do not do the concert.......typical of the jckson family...but i want to know is why they waited 20 years to collect money from them and if its been 20 years...the interest should be more than 2 million dollars....always thought of the jacksons as greedy idiots and they sure are proving that now that they have money! yeah michaels money...greedy bunch of azz wipes.

First of all, if Michael wasn't named in the original lawsuit, that company cannot place a lien against ANYTHING regarding Michael's estate. If they want their money, they'll have to do it specifically against the people they sued 15 years ago.

That company is not entitled to a single penny of Michael's money. This matter has nothing to do with Michael personally -- yet TMZ is reporting this as if it does. Why is that?? Slow news day, huh?

5. TMZ, THIS DOES NOT SOUND RIGHT!!!! HOW CAN THEY SUE THE ESTATE WHEN THEY SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH KATHERINE, JOE AND JERMAINE???? WHO SIGN THE CONTRACT????Posted at 3:02PM on Aug 5th 2009 by HumanNature

Could it be that K is coming into money and CA is a community state so in suing both Joe and Katherine they will get a judgment against what portion of the estate K is getting.

It just seems funny to do this now that Michael has passed away why not before? Why wait 10 years? Can they do that isn't there a statute of limitations? What happend to the money Michael left for his children?

The Borgen Project has some good information on the cost of addressing global poverty (borgenproject dot org).
It only takes $30 billion annually to end world hunger!
Yet... we are spending $550 billion annually on the defense budget.
