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.
