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.

Check it out! It's not Michael Jackson, but the lead singer is also a female and she's way prettier.

You obviously don't read too well. I never said I had 300 million dollars to give away. But I have worked in a soup kitchen, volunteered at Children's Hospital and rocked crack babies who can't stop screaming because they are in withdrawal, I have helped children learn to read through a library program, I have helped numerous old ladies across the street, paid for people's groceries (anonymously by handing the cashier the money and pointing them out), on and on and on. If you had read that carefully there was a statement about orphanages and such BETWEEN the 300 million dollar statement. I have never had 1 million dollars, much less 300 million.

Put your glasses on, although I doubt they will help - lens correction won't change stupidity.

See what I mean, pmiller? When they can't come up with something intelligent to say they start the cloning and the name calling.

Nothing but a bunch of losers. No wonder a certain person we both know never comes here anymore - he said there is nothing intellectually stimulating here. And he's right.

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!".

I'm not tired of hearing about MJ. But I am tired of hearing about all the people sueing him. When is there gonna be justice for his death? or his murder? I mean.. I want the damn doctor in jail! I wanna know if the whole "hoax" death thing is real? I wanna know if he was murdered! I dont care if hes being sued because thats just a bunch of people wanting his money.

Hope there is peace and justice for him.

20. The Rev. Al Sharpton held a press conference today to blast Tiger Woods for the lack of diversity among his mistresses.
Sharpton claims that the lack of African-American women among Woods’ harem will have a negative affect on the black community, specifically young black girls.

“Why is it that a man who calls himself black can’t bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?” said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem .
“What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over?
Shame on you, Tiger Woods.
What would your daddy say?”

Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today’s black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women.

Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines.

Hi Astabasta! I know, it's hilarious - as if cheating on your wife with a black woman is less morally wrong than if she is white. ROFLMAO
