Michael Jackson's Executors -- Pay Us Now!

12/15/2009 9:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's estate has not paid the Special Administrators a penny, but the day has now come -- at least according to new court docs filed by John Branca and John McClain.

The two men -- now officially the Executors of Michael Jackson's estate, are asking for 70% of the fees they have earned, pending court approval of the full amount.

The papers do not specify the amount Branca and McClain want. They do say that they want the statutory amount of executor fees for the first $25 million of the estate -- that fee comes to $188,000. But the estate is valued far in excess of $25 mil and the two Executors would be entitled to a portion of that as well. In addition, Branca and McClain also want fees "for their extraordinary services," though that amount is not specified.

According to the new documents, fees some of the law firms connected with the estate are asking for are huge. For example, the law firm of Greenberg Traurig wants $1,547,064.50. The firm of Hoffman, Sabban & Watenmaker wants $957,644. The firm of Kinsella, Weitzman, Iser, Kump & Aldisert wants $420,062.50.

Hi Debbie - I doubt la la land has 300 million to give away, but you are right about the hospitals and orphanages. I doubt la la land has ever served food in a soup kitchen, or rocked a crack baby, or taught other people's children to read, or helped a little old lady get across the street.

While I am not bragging, I have done all of those things and more. We should spend our time on this earth loving and helping each other, not criticizing and judging people we don't even know.

If you are male, la la land, Michael was more man than you will ever be, and if you are a woman - well, he would have taken one look at you and said "Bitch, please!".

How sad it is that you are so immature that you have to resort to cloning instead of coming up with an intelligent rebuttal. Everyone knows this is not me, and you are just showing your a$$ again. What are you, 12? If you are an adult I feel very sorry for you, your immaturity and lack of class are showing.

MJ and this is just one thing he did there was a baby that needed a liver transplant and he paid for all of it and the low end fee for something like this is over 100 thousand dollars but i am sure much more went into it.

Yeah - I think it's in love with me. Remember how in grade school if a boy liked you he'd pull your hair or throw things at you? Same principal. I just hope I don't let the adoration go to my head! LOL

Now watch closely - this is very predictable - once IT realizes it can't get to me by cloning me, IT will start signing its name ugly things like Deb is a bitch or Deb is a liar or whatever...anything to get my attention. :)

Henry is just fine thank you for asking! He is doing well in rehab and should be home shortly.

You know, you're going to burn in hell for statements like that. If I were you I would check myself before I wrecked myself.
