I Was Married to Michael Jackson

1/6/2010 2:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonA new creditor's claim in the Michael Jackson estate case ...this one filed by a woman who says she had a very special bond with MJ.

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.

I'm going to file a creditors claim against Michael Jackson's estate. For the past 7 months having to see, read, and hear stories about this man has caused me emotional upset. I have had emotional distress and depression because I was exposed to these constant story and I hated every minute of it. And to make matters worse, I now have to hear his music on the radio in my car, creating a very hostile personality because I want to punch out the stereo. I'm going to need therapy and I want his estate to be liable for all the damage this mans death has caused me. I want millions, I know money can't replace sanity, but it will surely help me be a happier crazy person.

TMZ can run with this sh$t but couldn't mention Evan Liar Chandler blowing his brains out or cover This Is It movie , or mention the honors Michael has received or give us a headline that FBI had vindicated Michael?
Truly Harvey, I'd say your days at TMZ are numbered. Your bosses must be keeping a close eye on this after all the complaints they've had.

I'm going to file a claim too. I think I was married to Michael Jackson sometime in the 80's and my two dogs and cat were my witnesses. When are these idiots going to disappear. I didn't realize how many nuts there were out there until MJ passed away.
No wonder the poor guy took drugs. I'd be on drugs too if I had to deal with these kind of idiots.

Thanks for keeping it light hahahahaha! I'm surprised there aren't more of these "I was MJ's secret wife" claims. Or even more "MJ is the father of my child" claims hahahaha!

With all the crazies trying to get at him, no wonder he always had to have security. Jeeeez!

P.S. Who chooses which photo of MJ to post? Don't you have a better archive to choose from??? For many years, MJ was a real beauty - black or white!!!

I just heard the most amazing news. Michael Jackson is alive. He faked his own death to avoid persecution by a conspiracy!
Mike and I are kicking back in my crib with some popcorn, reading TMZ, and still wondering "where is the justice?" that MJ Accuser's Dad suicide didn't get a peep on TMZ but yet this krap does.

I'm surprised it took this long for a "wife" to come out of no where!
