I personally think that all of the creditors are imaginary and that TMZ is not any better then the rest of the crappy media channels(Yellow Press)
Always willing to sell themselves and their souls to the highest bidder for just numbers.
For the love of God!!! open your eyes and your minds and look beyond to find the truth for yourselves.
Don't let them spoon feed you all this crap!! question things???

Unfortunately for MJ he wasn't in control of his finances that Dr. Tohme Tohme was and screwed up MJ's credit. Well all these vultures are going to continue to come out to get their meat.

Its hard to tell what claims are real and which ones a bogus anymore. If he owed the money, then of course he should pay for it. But its just a shame because the man was almost broke when he died. I think its like trying to get blood out of a turnip now.

I don't see what you could get for that kind of money in one month!!! My goodness! Well I hope they don't get more then what they really should get.

TMZ thanks for the nice photos of Michael!

I love you more Micheal! At least you don't have to worry about all this mess anymore.

Why and the hell would a company keep providing services for MJ if he wasn't paying them? They probably are lying about their services and are jumping on the leech bandwagon. If they weren't lying, they are too stupid to get paid. Nimrods!
