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.

Yep, someone is jealous. Haha, it´s kinda sweet!

And black girls are not ugly, they´re cute!

And Michael is so cute in this picture as he is in all. He looks like he just woke up - sexiest man on earth in my lifetime.

OMG, my post above was cencored - but only part of it...

The last part, where I said that hmmmmm and hmmm (the guys from TMZ, wink, wink) are not sexy. And that is why they feel the need to replace a picture the fans like with a picture they think the fans don´t like.
And I said that it doesn´t make hmmmmm, hmmm and lala and who have we an iota sexier trying to belittle Michael.

Yes she is and thinks she runs this board now don't she?

No, you are wrong, I don't run this board, Harvey Levin does. What, are you stupid or something? And not only that, but you are one person who is talking back and forth to themself. Very, very sad. You must be incredibly lonely in real life to resort to talking to yourself on a Michael Jackson board.

BTW pukemiller you have mail

And thats the truth    


Ok, I was looking through Yahoo movies to see how much This is it had earned. It is no longer on the top 10. I clicked on "browse movies" and then clicked on the letter "T" for This is it. This is what I found......

First of all it was dated 2008. Secondly, it stated 100 shows in London. WTH is going on here?
