Jackson Custody Lawyer Files Small Claim

11/16/2009 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe law firm that represented Michael Jackson in his custody battle against Debbie Rowe back in 2005 is going after the singer's estate big time, to the tune of ... $1,419.70. Wait, what?

The Law Offices of Michael L. Abrams filed a creditor's claim against the Jackson estate last week, claiming the singer owed the firm for a little bit of legal work earlier this year. And by "little" we mean just 4.35 hours, according to the claim.

Jackson paid part of the bill, the claim indicates, which includes a $14 parking charge.

Considering most creditor's claims against the estate have been six and seven figures, we figure it's easier for the estate to just pay it rather than fight it.

Yeah, and all of these "criminals and leeches" forced him to go out there and buy more useless stuff and engage the services of yet more criminals and leeches and also forced him to shop for doctors who'd give him lots and lots of drugs. It was all a big conspiracy and a gun was held to his head the entire time and he was a perpetual victim (listen to the broken record skipping in the background).

They should pay the bill. It's entirely possible that it's totally legitimate, or why else would they bother submitting such a small charge?

Branca this mess has got to stop now. Whoever was in charge of handling Michael's finances was probably the ones who squander his money and made Michael think they were paying the bills. Look at what happened to Nicholas Cage. So you all need to quit blaming Michael and keep quiet because you don't know if he wasn't paying his bills but I believe he was. These vultures are out for money because of the movie, and money the estate is making off his music. They are all going to milk it for whatever they can get out of the estate. Hope it all backs fire in each of their faces. Listen to Michael's song "Money"then you will understand why they all are claiming he owed them money. Michaels not here no more for them to get money out of so they going to do whatever they have to do to get it. This one is suspicious just like the rest of them and TMZ needs to quit printing things everytime a claim comes out. This is just more negative things that makes it look like Michael didn't pay his bills which no one in their right mind would ever believe. This is getting ridiculous and is stupid and just shows you that everyone that was around Michael was greedy and didn't care about Michael at all. Their day is coming when God sees fit. It's ashame that so many like Michael and others are having claims against them everytime you turn around or somebody is trying to get money out of them. Just shows the vultures are out for money more and more today.

Well...go ahead and pay this one, if it's legit. Otherwise, shred it like junk mail!

I’m thinking it’s bogus, and they’re trying to slip it in, thinking because they’re asking for so little, maybe no one will check it out. Well……be sure to check it out; because if they get away with it, you’ll have rat in the world trying to get a piece of the cheese.

What a stupid statement. You pay for it one way or another so what difference does it make whether he paid for it then or paid for it now? No different when you park for "free" in the shopping center. Do you REALLY think you're parking for free?

TMZ, where do you find these dumb posters?

It looks like WJ didn't pay his bills because OBVIOUSLY he didn't.

Another dumb poster.

Every creditor that WJ owed money to should be paid in full, PLUS interest.

Just when you thought you heard it all heres a little something. The baby mommie of Murrays, go look her up on imdb listed as a hot chick in some movie made in 2008 by Columbia which is conjoined with SONY! Does the whole darn world work for Sony? So shes an actress and a strip pole dancer and Murray has been in one movie. What next? Now we know what she looks like.
