Michael Jackson $5 Million Claim

10/15/2009 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained a creditor's claim against Michael Jackson's estate for a whopping $5 million.

The claim was filed by Richard Lapointe, a memorabilia collector who had bid on dozens of M.J. items at Julien's Auction. The auction was canceled and Lapointe believes he was the highest bidder and entitled to the goods.

Lapointe has already filed a lawsuit for the $5 mil against the estate and Julien's.

So you call it trust

In the devil's game
Of greed and lust

if you show me the man then I will sell him.
If you ask me to lie then I will tell him.
If its dealing with God then you will hell him.

You would do anything for money.

MJ LOVED THE WORLD WITH ALL HIS HEART, it was an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and he really wanted to HEAL IT, STOP WARS and DESTRUCTION and have people find a common ground IN LOVE and GOODNESS and SHARING !

He was a great man.

People he cared for abused his trust & deceived him, his father abused him verbally and physically; and, worst of all the media/press raped and stripped him of his dignity publicly and hounded him mercilessly.

And through it all he SMILED!

I wonder how many of us would withstand the same introspection into our lives and how we would handle the pain. Before we cast stones at MJ, we should imagine ourselves in his life and ask ourselves how would we manage it?

Only THOSE WITH NO SIN CAN JUDGE him, not us.


Michael, you were too good for this world, for the people here, for the decadence of the community around us. You are finally up with the angels, where you belong, may you RIP ! We will do our best to CARRY ON YOUR LOVE and SELFLESSNESS and teach it to our little ones.

They were in it for the money    

I think, given the straight facts, this guy should either probably shut up and move on. or maybe sue the real instigator in all of this, the real, actual man who stopped the sale and no, it was not Michael. I also feel this guy had more to lose than just 5 millon dollars-bet he was a plant to buy the stuff and then reap a huge profit for other investors -maybe he knew something was going to happen in Michael's near futrue? One never knows, does one?

There are four songs that should be PLAYED ALTERNATIVELY 24/7 OUTSIDE MJ'S GRAVE, this is what killed him slowly:

*** TABLOID JUNKIE ***

*** MONEY ***

*** PRIVACY ***

*** SCREAM ***

The guy changed his mind for God sake.
Decided selling his life's collection was not the best idea.

This guy needs to get over himself...

TMZ you are busy reporting duplicating the same story on MJ, you missed a video of Polanski's wife attaching a female reporter in France. Hilarious.
