MJ Accused of Stiffing Lawyers Out of $1.5 Mil

10/30/2009 7:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonA team of Michael Jackson's former lawyers claim the singer owes them more than $1.5 million dollars stemming from an agreement he signed way back in 2007.

The firm -- Mundell, Odlum & Haws -- filed a creditor's claim against Jackson's estate today, explaining how they were never paid back for a $1,144,808.95 promisary note Jackson signed back in 2007. It's unclear what the note was for.

The firm also claims they were never paid for hundreds of thousands of dollars of legal work they performed for Jackson from December 2007 through June 24, 2009 -- the day before Jackson died.

Grand total -- $1,571,768.62 plus interest.

lol, no, smartazz, I don't have that issue. Ever notice the ones who accuse are the ones who actually HAVE the issue? Kinda like the guy who farts and blames it on everyone else...think you might want to check on that before you go off on others....oh, and by the way, hating is so very disgusting. Does your mother/sister know she raised you that way?

They were in it for the money    

So, who was handling MJ's money back when? tohme? Grace? WHO? I think whoever it was who had the distiction of paying MJ's bills should be the one who gets nailed with all these outstanding debts. By the time everything is hashed out, the children won't have a lot of money. Most of it usually goes to the Lawyers. It's a Catch 22, that's for sure!

It seems like every day I read about someone suing MJ's estate for hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars. At this rate his mom and kids won't have nothing left to live on if these people win their cases.

I hope his movie "This Is It" makes a ton of money cause they are going to need it at the rate his estate is being sued.

Why are so many people just now filing claims after the man has passed away?! They should have done it while he was alive! Oh wait thats right if they filed while he was alive then he could have fought all the fraudulent claims and counter sued!!

lol, hey Morty! Was that the zoo? It's just that poor recluse at it again with his multiple usernames and personalities to go with, so I'm trying to entertain him, but it's beginning to get old as he keeps using my stuff...:D
