MJ's Last Recording - Subject of Creditor's Claim

11/2/2009 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We've now learned the basis for the latest creditor's claim against Michael Jackson's estate -- and it could be a goldmine.

As we first reported, Audio 4 Video Digital (A4V Digital, Inc.), filed a creditor's claim for $736,502.59. Sources connected with A4V tell TMZ that Jackson had been recording songs shortly before he died and A4V was working on the music at the time of his death.

An A4V source says the company is a co-owner -- along with the estate -- of the copyright for the sound recordings. This could represent the last work of Michael Jackson -- so good, bad or ugly, it could be the royal jackpot.

We're also told A4V was working with Jackson for years before his death and has a stockpile of recordings that have never been released.

MAN! These White People are having a feeding frenzy. We were talking about Michael dying three years ago. All of us agreed that when he did they would pick him apart because that's just who they are. Everything is about money when it comes to them. It's just so sad.

Wow, just... After seeing TII this weekend, Michael was pulling out all the stops for the amazing adventure that he wanted to take his fans on. TII was going to have musical features as part of the show. Smooth Criminal, Thriller are just a few that was going to give us this 3 and 4D experience.

Also just FYI:
AEG also produced the "New Day Has Come" Las Vegas show for Celine Dion. They also tried to push Celine for more outrageous content in her show and wanted it in the shortest time possible. Fortunately, Rene, her husband and manager, pushed back and he had a lot of clout behind him. Celine actually injured her abdominal muscles in some crazy wire moves they asked her to do. Due to the goofy way her body reacts to pressure, she got minor illnesses several times from stress. In the beginning of the show, they wanted her to do 5 shows per week. Eventually when they realized that 3 to 5 years of 5 nights a week would likely KILL her, they cut it back to 3 shows per week.

Celine's show began rehearsals in October. It officially began in mid-March. She had a full 6 months to get ready and even then there were glitches in the show that had to be worked out. I cannot fathom a show of the magnitude of "This Is It" being ready in half that time.

So A4V Digital, Inc is making a claim against the Estate when they have in their back pocket the potential to make an enormous amount of money off of Michael Jackson? Better watch out, Branca and McClain are formidable opponents. As much as I would love to hear more of Michael's music and welcome the opportunity, I can't bear the backstabbing cut-throat business I'm learning that the music industry can be. I'm probably even more naive than Michael was. God bless the man, he just wanted to create, sing and be heard.

Can't wait for the new music !
His music is so fabulous, the creditors are like sharks waiting to get paid from the estate. Nevertheless, he is the King of Pop and you clowns can't break him, even in death!

So, a murderer was sent to kill him.

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL JACKSON
