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...

You've got to be kidding....MJ wanted those drugs! Dr. Klein undoubtedly had some shady practices, including prescribing and using drugs on an addict, but no way he "conned" Michael..Ever heard of "Dr. shopping"? Addicts do it to get drugs, and when you have money like MJ, it's easy to find prescribing physicians
.
Anybody that thinks MJ was conned into using drugs is delusional. Who was "conning" him when he begged the nurse-practitioner for Diprivan? Who conned him into ordering over $100,000 worth of drugs from one pharmacy? Give me a break.

Just resent the hell out of all the vultures, including his family....
I do think that people who were ripped off should get their money; obviously Katherine Jackson can't handle cash, as shown by the fact that she has filed bankruptcy, and I worry that there will be nothing left for MJU's three kids. Especially if Katherine continues to support ALL the Jackson grandchildren.

Jackie, you got that right! Those children are in incompetent hands. What a tragedy that MJ's kids most likely will be broke by the time they are adults.

Katherine and Joe would loot that estate for the family if they had the means. Thats why they are pushing to get a family member as a trustee, MJ knew he couldn't trust them at all when it came to money,,,

I hope Branca and McClain do not cave in or compromise. Follow MJ's directive already. Let Katherine challlenge it and get disinherited...

They are lying about not being kept informed. SO GLAD THESE KOREAN'S HAVE COMEBACK...will remind the judge Katherine has no business being involved in the business decesion.

512. Clarifying my previous answer:
Parents (any parent) has trouble believing that their child is addicted to drugs or whatever..
but in this case, you've got many people reporting interactions with Michael Jackson (on daily interactions - like at the trial) in which it would appear as Michael was able to curve his prescription habit and appeared to NOT be using prescription medications to excess.

I've read several stories in which Katherine lays the blame of Michael's death at AEG's feet.
Everything from the schedule, the long hours, to the need for him to 'medicate' so that he could met the demand.

A 3rd autopsy MAY be trying to determine the start/stop of prescription drug use.
The hair follicle is like a tree trunk - what is in the body grows out into the strand of hair and each parsec of hair contains minerals, environmental traces and could show drug usage.
When she ordered her first autopsy (the 2nd autopsy), the LAPD had not labeled Michael as a chronic prescription drug addict. (It would appear that this label was more so that a case can be mounted for the shear amount of doctors who were willing to overlook their ethical promises for monetary gain.)
But who knows, she could be shooting herself in the foot.
Personally, I would have done it in secret and if the results were favorable, then released the results.
But we've still not gotten results from AUT 1 or 2.. so I don't give it a whole lot of credibility...


**I've got a meeting in about 2 mins.. so I will most likely not be able to respond back ;(

They already had their own private paid for autopsy. Are they now going to go ME shopping until some coroner they pay off will put on to paper what they want to hear?

The LA coroner is tied into the investigation, etc., so I can see why the official results are being held up. Why have the Jacksons not revealed their private autopsy report? Because they don't like what it says. They'll probably find some shady coroner now to concoct a third report, and then say the first two were a conspiracy. These people are out of their minds.

They had this up their sleeves all along, if this is the truth. That's why they never buried him.

So, the theory and conspiracy regarding the insurance policy is now BS. No clause that covered drug use, in fact the clause says no payment for drug use. How these ridiculous and stupid rumors get started.....oh, I forgot, it was the Jacksons that did that.....

Now, this is something. How in the HELL, do this people think that Michael is suppose to pay a lawsuit for something he was not involved in. These people are sueing Katherine, Joe and Jermmaine Jackson, not Michael Jackson, they need to go somewhere with this. Trying to steal from a person that is dead, for someone elses cause. What a piece of work.

They are suing Katherine, Joe, and Jermaine....the only reason it's being brought up again is because Katherine Jackson inherited Michael's money. Front page news...if they owed YOU money, you'd want it to be paid, yes? These are real people, to whom Katherine Jackson owes money. She declared bankruptcy a few years ago, and I have a feeling lots of Michael's creditors will be appearing too. That's the law: debts still must be paid! Michael owed $100,000 just to one pharmacy!
Totally agree with posters re several autopsies. The Jacksons will keep going until they get a shady one that writes whatever their version of his death is. I never thought about the fact that he's not buried yet, but you're right, that's probably why. Sorry, I loved MJ's music for years, but his family are ALL leeches.
