How odd. They weren't paid????? Who the heck were Michael's accountants, advisors and managers at that time??? It's not like Michael sat down at the kitchen table and wrote out cheques; he relied on others for that. And I'm quite sure that, out of all of his bills, he would have wanted them paid, even if it was in instalments. Something's just not right with this - it seems his last few years were stormy and full of confusion and rather corrupt people. No one he could trust. Makes my heart ache - Bless his soul and his children.

I wish people would stop speaking ill of the DEAD. Michael has gone now and what ever his problems were remenber he gave the World good music and lifted most peoples spirits. I dont expect the Michael HATER'S to understand how to stop. Michael was a tormented soul, he loved people and just wanted to be loved back thats why he wanted his own children to love, and to be loved back without being listed as an abuser which he never was, he was just an easy target for money, do the Haters not see that?

# 34 .. Michael's accountants should have been paying his bills with what? Their good looks? .. The guy was spending 100,000 a month on his rental house .. He might have had money on paper but he was cash poor and out of control... As proven by his sad weird death.
Now that Michael Jackson is dead and not spending like a drunk sailor his whole family has money.
Good bye Michael Jackson.. But you were a hot, stinky, perverted, child molester mess in life and your the same in dead.. Boycott anything Jackson !!!! .. Don't buy the t shirt, the cd, the dvd, ticket to their nasty concerts or go to the movie..
Michael Jackson and family .. GO AWAY !!!
By, Boycott anything Jackson

For Sure    

Meseareau is doing what he is suppose to do. Not all claims will be validated by the court.

To those getting negative things from the tapes... I guess I listened to different Tapes.. as I said before you can make anything out nothing if you want! OMG !

As to the Family .... becareful what you wish for... Looks like they are getting a dose of the Tabloids themselves and I do not think they like it... Welcome to your brothers world Jackson family!

RIP Michael

I had some really good comments, but was censored.

I mean really! What parent, who truly loves their child, is going to settle for money, instead of the sicko’s balls on a stick, dipped in acid, and penis thrown in a metal shredder?

Confiscate the money from the accusers’ parents, they’ve got more than enough!

Why are so many of you acting like this is such a scandal. This is not a lawsuit it is a claim. IT'S PROBATE!!

I am amazed at how uneducated people are just about life. Perhaps none of you have had a relative die yet and hat to deal with this.

I am sure his bill was in the millions for his legal team. Like all of us he was probably making monthly payments.

Some of you just want an excuse to speak negatively about Michael Jackson which tells me that you lead such miserable lives that you have to make fun of others. That's a sign of insecurity and low self-esteem.

Will you guys STOP responding to the HATERS!

I told y'all, they are not important! As soon as you see a negative word towards MJ, just don't read it! You're buying into their madness!

They come to these sites to eject their venom, just ignore them!

So a creditor files a claim in Probate Court? Why is this newsworthy? TMZ and some posters on here seem obsessed with Michael Jackson in either a positive or negative way.

Please, GET A LIFE!

This is part of the process people. His estate has to settle all his debts. This is no different if you had an outstanding debt from say an old cell phone account. The creditors can come after you for years. Even though it is reported on your credit report for seven years you still have to pay it.
