Michael Jackson Sued Over Bad TV Habits

11/20/2009 4:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson stiffed the people who installed his TV system at Neverland, this according to a brand spankin' new creditor's claim.

According to a claim filed yesterday, a company called Video & Audio Center (VAC) installed electronic audio and video equipment at Neverland Ranch in late 2003 and early 2004. We're told the company rewired the house, installed plasma TVs and put speakers all over the house.

VAC claims Jackson's camp ran up a bill of $109,540.85 -- and paid $25,000 of that, but never settled the bill completely. According to the docs, VAC says they won a judgment back in 2007 for the remainder.

They're asking for $128,482.77 -- the unpaid bill plus interest.

169. Jermaine Jackson

was scheduled to perform at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center here in California for December 12. I purchased tickets early in August so that we could get great seats to see Colors of Christmas with JJ.

Today, I just found out that Jermaine will not be performing. The ticket desk said he had a contract with them but somehow got out it. I was really looking forward to seeing him perform in a small venue with good quality sound!

That sounds like something Jermaine Jackson would do. I live not to far from there myself.

This is what he does all the time! HE also like to change his name to other poster names to start arguments...Any time there is a normal conversation going on then he pulls this crap!! No one likes to come on these boards anymore because of him!!! That's why MJ posts used to get like a thousand comments and now...Hardly any. All the regular posters have found somewhere else to communicate with each other!!! He's been doing it for weeks under all different names!!! Check out some of the older stories he is on here 24/7! It sucks because we used to have some informative conversations on here!!!

So, true, and those ten million usernames 'it' uses to talk to itself, pat itself on the back and laugh at 'its' own idiotic comments are so pathetic. I'm still here as a reader, but have also moved to the 'other' place where the haters are not allowed to post their ignorant and childish (missed meds) moronish comments.

My understanding is that when MJ moved back to the states from the persian gulf, he lived in Vegas, therefore, seemed to me that someone else was running the show in Neverland. His siblings/his accountants/managers or whoever!!! The estates probably should talk to those people involved with the day-to-day thing at Neverland. Perhaps, Torme, would be a good place to start, I thought I read that he was his advisor during the latter part of his life. I heard he was Germain's friend, setting up the networking with AEG, Neverland & the O2 gig. I read in paper that MJ didnt even have access to his bank info, then, maybe, the finncial advisor, Torme, is a good place to start.

With all due respect, that's total BS. Many of these creditor claims were lawsuits that he was well aware, and even went to court himself on. The way some fanatics take any normal responsibility off of this man is unbelievable. If he was so non functioning in life, he belonged in a mental ward a lot of years ago. The bottom line is, he was a dead beat and had been for years. His family does the same exact thing. Take and take from others and never pay their bills. It's in their DNA.

6. This is what happens when you let/trust others to take care of you money and pay your bills.

Do you not read? This company won a court case against him and they got a judgement in 2007. Any pending judgements or lawsuits have to be refiled to the probate court and estate.

People need to educate themselves in lawsuits, judgements, probate and estates before they make such ignorant statements.

They should leave him alone? I'd love to see you walk away from $128,000 if someone owed you that money.


9. How can you sue someone that isnt with us anymore? These vultures!! Leave Michael ALONE! Let him rest in peace. This was in 2003? Theres something called statue of limitations.

Of course, he was set up. His attorney at the time was against it and should have gone to trial and got aquitted. Everybody knows it was a false accusation, all for the money. Anyways, its time-out. Take a break, should go see the film, This Is It, last showing in Calgary, Canada, is Dec 3. Promise you, it will open your eyes, its entertaining, funny at times, and moving. See how they shot the 3D video is worth the money. How many people does TMZ have on payroll. Seems like quite a lot.

New Moon got 1/2 star rating. The paper in Calgary said that its only for vampire fans. Xmas Carol is 2 stars, This Is It, 4 star, and the one we are looking for is a new movie about Nelson Mandela, the movie critic said that this should be something we should be looking for, I forgot the name. Just saw the preview on TV. Its rated 4 stars.
