Lawyers from MJ Molestation Case Want Money

9/29/2009 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael jacksonAnother day, another creditor's claim filed against Michael Jackson's estate.

The law firm Mesereau & Yu -- who defended Michael during his molestation trial in 2005 -- filed a claim on Friday against the estate.

In the claim, it says Michael owes the firm $341,452.05 for work done between July of 2005 and February of 2006.

And well worth it ... Michael was acquitted on all 14 charges.

Did MJ ever pay a bill? And why would someone with his supposed income need to make payments to his attorneys? He was able to buy thousands of dollars of antiques and art work at a whim, why not pay your damned attorneys who so ably kept your butt out of jail?
That says a lot about his character, doesn't it?

Man, another day, another unpaid bill surfaces.
Geez, wait a while, and NASA will claim that MJ owed them millions for that trip to the moon he took last winter!
And as mentioned before, didn't that Prince pay his legal fees?

oh yeah? well someone that has been abused would NEVER accept money from the person that abused them instead of pursuing charges to get that person put in jail. the first accuser was a LIAR and so was the second one.

I think he had his own accountant and I think people were lying about paying the bills and stealing money from him. I do not think a billionaire pays his own bills. MJ was very naive and too trusting of everybody and that is what led to people exploiting him from business managers to record companies to medical doctors to the fathers of kids who loved him but got jealous and make up false allegations against him.

They had 2 and a half years to collect their money, I'm guessing Michael paid these guys off and they're just trying to get some free cash.

And people wonder why there's so much ove rcoverage over his death. It makes me wonder who's the real freak? The star himself or the people obsessed with him that would simply report him one way when he's alive and all of the sudden turn bleeding heart or worse gold digger for more dirt after his death.

Media/Reporters are whores!!!

77. You MJ fanatics, I will not call you MJlovers because true lovers
love unconditionally faults/truth and all.

You don't even think that MJ should be held accountable for debts he incurred. This is the firm that kept MJ out of prison for years. When firms/debtors are unsuccessful in collecting the debt while the person is alive they present the outstanding debt to probate.

If he had left the children alone like he had been warned by friends and not made that remark to Bashir there would never have been a trial and he'd probably still be with us today.

You are not MJlovers you are MJfanatics and heretics.
narrowminded blind crazed MJfanatics
You give us MJlovers a bad rap


Posted at 2:16PM on Sep 29th 2009 by your are clueless get a brain or get out of here



the only clueless one in need of a brain is you. you're someone who is so scared you can't even think of a fitting name to post by. i know one, how about "dumb ass"? stfu already! how many times have you posted this? 5,6,7 times? we read the first one, no need to post it over and over and over again! and get all of your facts straight before you post a bunch of nonsense. the only thing anyone is saying on here is that this is not news! can you read? obviously not, b/c the above sentence said: "In the claim, it says Michael owes the firm $341,452.05 for work done between July of 2005 and February of 2006." as has been pointed out by people with a brain (definitely not you), this is OBVIOUSLY for services rendered AFTER the molestation case (June 2005), which Michael paid for.

and as far as the Bashir interview goes, everybody knows Bashir edited that to give it a slanted view, Michael had his own videographers and they show the WHOLE interview, and Bashir conveniently left a lot of things out. do some real research and check out Michael's videos from that same interview, they're all over youtube.

and think before you make a dumb ass post, the same dumb ass post TEN TIMES! but oh yeah, you don't have a brain.
