Michael Jackson's Former Manager Wants $$$

10/29/2009 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's estate has a new creditor to deal with ... and this one is interesting. Leonard Rowe, self-described manager of the singer, has filed a creditors claim for $51,218.

Michael Jackson/Leonard Rowe

Rowe says in legal docs on March 25, 2009, Jackson signed an agreement in which Rowe would "oversee and supervise his finances and the shows at the O2 Concert Hall in London..."

Rowe says this year, he incurred $51,218 in expenses which include hotels, car rental, food and airline tickets.

And, included in the legal docs ... the agreement that Jackson allegedly scribbled on and signed.

For your info, they changed the pic that's why I posted that comment. There was a pic of him during the "Bad" era but TMZ quickly changed it, idk why......

However, remember he also has a letter of termination from MJ as well. Remember what Dileo was telling LKL about the transition. Also remember that Rowe is business partners with daddy Joe. With Branca at the lead, I am sure this will not go far.

Gorgeous picture of Michael.Nice to see. Why not show kindness and respect instead of tearing him down. Even tho I thought he looked unhealthy and terrible thin in the "This is It" movie. I only wished he would have received the treatment he needed so desperately but all the vultures were flying over head. RIP Michael.

Rowe is insane. Even I'm not an attorney and know that it wouldn't hold up in COURT! This is laughable.

No notary to the signature? Scribbles everywhere. Insane.

I see there's a space for a notary's signature, but it was NOT notarized. This may be a draft or it may be the letter that Frank DiLeo talked about on LKL.

Frank claimed that Joe coerced Michael into making Leonard Rowe his manager for O2. Soon afterward, Michael called Frank and said, "Get rid of him (Rowe.) I didn't want to it, but Joseph was pressuring me."

I think that Frank produced a letter on LKL that revoked any management duties for Rowe.

Vultures...just vultures!

I see no notary signature and what is up with all the written in stuff? Could rowe have written that stuff in after MJ signed the doc since no notary has signed it? Couldn't he have gotten a refund on airline tickets? so why sue for that money?

That looks likes Michael's writing all over the letter. Appears Leonard Rowe had the letter typed, and MJ agreed with the corrected version.

Haven't seen him out with Papa Joe lately. Wonder why.

And what is going on with the Allgood Productions suit? Bring us more on that TMZ, please. Thank you.

I guess it's wasn't good enough when he was alive that you trashed him. Remember the story about his supposedly mutilated ear that he used for plastic surgery. How low could you possible go and it was completely FALSE.

PUT THE OTHER PICTURE OF MICHAEL BACK UP!
