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.

They still make money from him? Or he makes money, being alive somewhere. He has been seen in Miami at the airport

#12. "For the racist black folks, are you still in denial that Michael actually wanted to be white?"

**NO ICE ICE BABY...
No one denies that MJ wanted to be WHITE....but that is cultural BRAIN WASHING that still goes on today.....
250 years of Calling the Black man and the Black woman "UGLY" will do that to a person!
It's The White person/persons (some,..not all)that deny that THAT is the TRUTH.
This is why Chris Rock just made a movie about what we used to call "Good Hair"...even the title of the movie connotes that somehow our hair (African American) is LESS, or not as attractive. This social brain washing that has existed for years....
but when we make mention of it...we're called Racists....AS IF....

How would they own the copyrights if he rented teh place from them? Does not make sense at all. MJ's estate owns the copyrights ALONE. That company will get pay the rent that is due and Hasta la vista. Why the hell would they receive COPYRIGHTS OWNERSHIP on something they had nothing to do with? I have never heard of a studio owning the copyrights on an artist's work. The nonsence we have been hearing because all these folks are after MJ's money.

Get lost losers. And Leave MJ and his estate alone. You will get paid the 736K $ and beat it.

It really makes my stomach turn that now that Michael Jackson is gone all of these a------- all have their money grubbing hands out. When is all going to end. "LEAVE HIM ALONE". Why didn't they go after the money when he was alive....because they are all cowards. They new when he was alive that he would have fought them with everything he had and would have probably won. They can't leave well enough alone. They belong to his kids now. So what are you going to do take the food out of their hands...Come on end it once and for all. He was persucuted when he was alive and even in death he gets no peace......EverydaY there is somebody with their hand out. Makes me sick.

The media dont like to report anything good about Michael Jackson thats why..TMZ has no thread about THIS IS IT being #1 at box office either. BUT see if it didn't do well it would be on every T.V. station, front page of every newspaper,magazine you name it. This is the crap Michael put up with all his life!!

#19...Interesting how that tidbit faded from the screen in a hurry. Release of that autopsy photo was going to result in criminal charges, lawsuit(s), firings...you name it. Not to mention outrage from the fans and most of the general public..excluding certain low-lifes who get their kicks out of evil-doing. Find something else to occupy your time.
