Dr. Tohme Tohme

Wants Money Money

from MJ

11/13/2009 3:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael Jackson, Dr. Tohme TohmeMichael Jackson's former manager just filed a huge creditor's claim against the estate ... and it's mostly over the sale of Neverland Ranch in 2008.

In the documents, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Dr. Tohme says he was promised a certain fee from Michael if he could locate a company to save Neverland Ranch from foreclosure last year.

Dr. Tohme claims he's the one who brought Colony Capital LLC to the table -- the company T says forked over $23 million to save Neverland. Dr. Tohme wants his cut of the deal -- which he claims is approximately $2.3 million.

In July of 2008, Dr. Tohme also says Michael promised him 15% of the singer's "gross compensation within the entertainment industry" -- but T has no clue how much he's owed for this one.

The doc wants in excess of $2.3 million.

I have great difficulty believing anything that Tohme Tohme says.I doubt that he is owed money from the estate.

If there was ever a doubt that ALL these people filing court papers are just money hungry opportunist this as well as the many more to come proves it.

I wonder how these people sleep at night after begging for a piece of something they had nothing to do with creating and trying to steal money from MJ's children.

Dr. Murray look what you did. You disgusting peace of human waste. When is Murray going to jail.

I love Michael but I can see him "verbally" promising this just to save Neverland; I don't think he would be so stupid as to sign a written agreement/contract. If he did, well, then I guess Tohme gets paid. Not speaking of legitimate claimants, but a lot of the folks with their hands out are crooked and shady and I hope the judge can see that and throw their claims out. INCLUDING JOE'S.

Each time these con men see a story about how much money MJ's movie, music, memorabilia, his beatles catalog, his part of Sony catalog is making, they can't handle it and decide they want some of that money.

Most of these extortion artists never worked a day in their lives. Poor Michael worked since he was 6 years old. GTFO fake DR.

Dr Thome Thome was the one who returned that 5 million dollars to MJ estate, where is the rest of money Doc. It was Janet and Jermaine who introduced Thome Thome to Michael Jackson MJ didn't find this people, his family introduced did. the same thing with Dr. Klein. it was Elizabeth Taylor who introduced Klein to MJ. It was Jackie who introduced Magic Johnson to MJ leading to Mj meeting with Michale Jordan. It was the Arvizo (Garvizo) who introduced MJ to Chris Tucker to MJ. Michael didn't have social skills to meet people most of his friends were introduced to him by either his family or family friends. The same thing with Bret Ratner it was Chris Tucker who introduced him to the director Bret Rater. I guess MJ believed and trusted his family and friends to introduce him to good people.

Sadly, there will be more of these to come. Why didnt this doctor file a lawsuit before M.J. dies? Sad, when all these people are coming out of the woodwork now, and going after a dead man who cannot defend himself.

Well, well, well. The Estate people need to watch & listen to Tohme's Interviews right after Michael died. I heard him say numerous times "I wasn't paid anything, I wasn't helping Michael for money, I was glad to help him for no pay, because HE WAS MICHAEL JACKSON,."

Tohme R. Tohme, your words will come back to bite you. Hope you have all this in writing, I am sure you do, after all you were signing Michaels deals and his checks.

Did Pimp Daddy Jermaine help you with this claim for a price?? Did he Tohme?

Good luck T2 in getting a cent. Unless there is a written agreement or contract, you are more likely to be laughed out of court-- if you ever even reach it. 15% of $200 million is all you and Papa Joe are seeing.

GO TEAM BRANCA!

TMZ-- did T2 ever sign over the release of MJ's items to Julien or from Julien? Isn't there an auction coming up with them?
