Jackson Honchos Score $3 Mil

8/8/2009 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The special administrators of Michael Jackson's estate scored a big one -- reeling in $3 million from the company that issued a life insurance policy to M.J.

John Branca (above) and John McClain quietly cashed in the policy -- reports it was worth upwards of $20 million are simply not true. It was a $3 million payout. And here's why it was a swift move -- the coroner hasn't even released the autopsy report yet.

Some life insurance companies are hinky about paying out proceeds until the cause of death is known. Remember Heath Ledger's death, when the life insurance company wouldn't promptly fork over the $10 million because Heath allegedly lied about drug use on the application?

Somehow Branca and McClain convinced the insurance company to ante up with lightening speed -- and the estate is $3 million richer for it.

MJ's last rehearsal at Staples was June 23rd, probably why Halperin made the claims about the 24th.

This for number 34. I agree with you totally that Branca is associated AEG, I do believe that Branca is on the take as well. I'm sorry, there's too many unanswered questions . I don't believe for one minute that Branca was brought back by MJ, a week before he died Come on now people wake up can't you see the handwriting on the wall. Branca is working with AEG , which is a front for the mob. And Dr. Conray Murray is the fall guy, who was hand picked to take the fall. This Doctor was inroduced to MJ by a body guard. It sounds mighty suspicious to me. First of all I wouldn't take advice from someone I hired as my body guard as a referral for a doctor, regardless of how good this doctor is. AEG is behind this and the lie lawyers are in on it. Check out the dynamics in this whole situation, regarding AEG and the lie lawyers.
