Shellie Doreen Smith filed cryptic legal papers laying claim to Michael's moolah. So we got on the horn and spoke with Smith herself, who says she was married to MJ in the 1970s, though she doesn't remember exactly when. Details, details.
Smith says the ceremony was lovely ... at a hotel in NYC. The only witnesses were hotel employees.
We're told she's asking for spousal support. Breath holding is not recommended.
