Attorney Wants $3 Mil, Apology From MJ Estate

10/20/2009 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's former lawyer wants $3 million from the singer's estate -- he also wants an apology.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, attorney Sidney Lanier represented Jackson in several cases.

Lanier claims he repped MJ in a hotly contested case in 2005 involving former porn king and Jackson confidant Marc Schaffel. After the case, Jackson refused to pay the lawyer's fee and filed a lawsuit against Lanier claiming fraud.

Lanier alleges as a result of Jackson's suit, his reputation was sullied all over town. He claims Jackson put him through "two years of expensive, stressful litigation and ridicule..."

Lanier even goes as far as to say that he wishes Jackson hadn't died because he "wanted him to apologize for his action against me; because of his tragic death that can never happen."

That's not surprising, since all you do is run your mouth about nonsensical garbage all day long, that you don't do some constructive reading, investigation or intelligent contribution about anything important on any of the MJ boards.

You are right, Michael was "an innocent", he was very shy around women and didn't like to talk about sex. He even said to Rabbi Schmuley that he was embarrassed to think that women in the audience were wondering what he looked like naked. Which, of course, only magnifies his appeal -the unattainable, unforgettable Michael. But he sure knew what he was doing onstage!!!!! He was no dummy - sex sells!

Mmmm Hmmmm....Lisa Marie seemed to think he was quite the 'hottie' in the bedroom. She described him as 'very passionate' with the stamina of a 'bull'. Oh, my. I don't think he was 'prolific' as far as # of partners but I bet if he genuinely cared about a woman, he could 'rock her world'. You don't move like that & have those kind of seductive looks without knowing how to 'use' it! Okay, I need to go fan myself like MJ's PYT now. Where is she, need to borrow that fan...

That is a good video, too! I wanted to say, I am a huge Elvis fan. He has been dead since 1977 and I still get shivers when I watch one of his movies or concerts.

81. Do you think 'the man' himself ever looked at these video's on You Tube & read the comments? I think of that from time to time when I'm watching them.

I don't know if he did or not, but if he did he certainly knew what his female fans wanted, and boy did he deliver!

You know, I've 'heard' that he was quite the little internet 'porn fan'?? We've all seen the porn mags they confiscated from 'Neverland'. Sometimes that makes me a little sad because I think about that comment he made, "What am I gonna do, just walk up to some girl & say Hi, I'm Mike. Wanna go out on a date"? Seems crazy to us 'cause I would have said 'Hell yeah, just ask' but I know it just wasn't that easy for him.

Please People don't forget Michael has been "nominated" for 5 AMA awards BUT WE MUST VOTE IN ORDER FOR HIM TO WIN. The PEOPLE decide the winner.

Go to http://abc.go.com/shows/american-music-awards/vote -or- Google American Music Awards. You will need to register with the website to vote but it only takes seconds.

FOR THOSE THAT ARE BOYCOTTING ABC - These awards are about Michael. Even if you don't watch the show, please vote for him to WIN. This is about his Legacy as the King. Show the world that even in death - no one is better than Michael.

EMINEM is also nominated in categories with Michael and we all know how he MADE FUN OF MICHAEL and how much that hurt Michael per his interview with Geraldo. So, at the very least, DON'T LET EMINEM WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Michael needs ALL your votes so SPREAD THE WORD. Remember Many people outside USA residency are unable to vote. YOU CAN VOTE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE SO LOG ON EVERY DAY AND VOTE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. vote for Michael.

Oh hell, I just got that! You are 'vewwy, vewwy, nasty'!!

I think MJ WAS a nasty boy. Have you all seen the video where the girl asks for the hug & he tell her, "I'll give you more than a hug"?? I had to wind that thing back SEVERAL times to make sure I heard it right. Anybody wants to see it, I'll send the link.
