MJ Estate Pounded by New Creditor's Claim

11/17/2009 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonGet your currency converters out -- the law firm that filed the latest creditor's claim against Michael Jackson's estate wants to get paid in pounds.

The firm of Arnold & Porter -- which has an office in London -- just filed papers in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming MJ owes them for legal services rendered between February and June of '09.

The total bill: £103,179.10.

And this is interesting: In the docs, it shows Michael initially hired the firm in connection with a "dispute with Abdulla Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa" -- the son of the King of Bahrain.

The sheikh sued Michael in 2008 for $7 million -- after Michael allegedly accepted a bunch of money and perks from the sheikh in exchange for two new albums.

The case was settled shortly after.

Can you blame them for wanting to avoid payment in US dollars? :)

Nope. Not with Obama in the WH. Even the Chinese are worried.

Share Print CommentsAs reported over the weekend by the UK's Daily Mail, British ABC reporter Martin Bashir — who famously interviewed Princess Diana in 1995 — has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. The New York Post reports the sad news of Bashir's brain tumor:

Martin Bashir - the British TV reporter who conducted headline-making interviews with Princess Diana and Michael Jackson before becoming an anchor for "Nightline" - has a brain tumor.

The tumor was discovered while he was being treated after banging his head on the Times Square studio set of the ABC late-night news show.


The tumor in his pituitary gland is small, according to reports, and doctors have no plans yet to remove it. He has returned to work since the discovery as doctors monitor its growth.


TVNewser reports ABC's official statement on Martin Bashir's brain tumor:

"An MRI scan recently discovered a small growth on Martin Bashir's pituitary gland. Bashir's doctors have advised that no immediate action be taken as they monitor the situation month to month. Bashir is feeling well as he continues to keep a full schedule anchoring and reporting for ABC News."

I do not believe Chandler is dead. I think he just wants the public to leave him alone. He is probably getting death threats since MJ died. Until you see it reported by the AP do not believe it. All the news coverage so far is just a copy of Radar Online.

Thanks, God. I trust in you. Please guide Messrs. Branca & McLean to do the right thing for the estates. This is November/09, isn't this passed the deadline for creditor's claim. Thanks to the Branca team in advance for all your have done for the estates. I'm a fan from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and I trust you will handle everything in an expeditious way.

to #15 Karma Baby - well, I guess money can't buy happiness. I thought I heard that the dentist divorced his wife, and his son is estranged from him. Oh, well. May he rest in peace. My prayers are for his family. MICHAEL JACKSON, WE LOVE YA!!!

In the end Evan Chandler still didn't get what he wanted. He didn't have the money. His nastiness created something wicked in his body.
Michael Jackson was innocent and Evan knew it.
