The only Jackson who was flush with cash -- Janet -- put her money on the line to cover some of the cost of Michael's funeral, this according to legal documents that were just unsealed.
In the docs, it shows Janet signed an "initial contract with Forest Lawn for mortuary services in the amount of $103,578.50" and paid $49,372.50 of the bill up front.
According to the docs, the special administrators of Michael's estate were granted permission to pay Janet back the $49k and to pick up the remainder of her outstanding tab.
