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.

62. So much anger and hatred is being expressed by MJ fans on this website against those who dare to disagree with them. I shudder to think what you people would have been like if Wacko Jacko hadn't brought you all "peace and love."

That is so true and the bad thing about it is that these fans talk about how MJ was about peace and love and don't cast judgement on MJ But in the same breath they cast judgement on the haters or anybody that disagrees with their opinions. They are just hypocrites.

TMZ, you guys are full of chicken sh##t. Instead of posting things aobut MJ's finances, why not let us know what the hell is going on with these crooked doctors who killed our "King of Pop". I'm sure lots of celebs have financial problems, but you guys just want to pick MJ out of the bunch because he was so talented and one of kind and you bastards know this as well. That is why he's being picked on so much in his death. You guys have never, ever made a dead celeb look this bad. Usually after they die, that's it, but for some apparent reason, you guys can't seem to lay off Michael. Get over your jealousy already. He will always be the "King of Pop". So go the hell and suck a fart out my ass.

Michael Jackson’s This Is It Reviews

More bonkers Jackson-at-work moments would’ve helped, but mostly we just see the kid from Gary, Indiana, dispensing hugs and God-bless-you’s to an awed cast and crew. Watching various dancers and guitarists grin irrepressibly during their one-on-one run-throughs with the man is one of This Is It’s few pleasures. -Dallas Observer

That la jury help seen micheal jackson to his grave he thought he got away with molesting that poor mexican kid with cancer a few years back. but he paid for with his life in the end. The jury should have done the the right thing and sent him to jail. Micheal was no different then don or joe down the block but he thought he was with his bald head.
