Michael Jackson's Brother Wants Estate To Pay

1/21/2010 11:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's brother, Randy Jackson, is in the middle of a creditor's claim filed against the estate and according to legal docs ... Randy is on the side of the creditor.

Stabler & Associates, a company that claims it was hired to handle Michael Jackson's business matters -- in particular, a humongous Bank of America loan and the funding of his 2004 child molestation trial -- claims the estate owes the company $275,446.08.

Here's the problem. The statute of limitations has run on the debt. But Perry Wander, lawyer for Stabler & Associates, tells TMZ the company relied on Michael and Randy's repeated promises that the debt would be paid, so the estate should not be able to raise the technical, statute of limitations defense.

Howard Weitzman, lawyer for Michael Jackson's estate, is unmoved, telling TMZ, "The claim needs to be investigated and it appears to be barred by the statute of limitations."

And this is interesting ... included in the $275,446.08 -- a late penalty of $81,946.08.

And you thought credit card interest was high.

i'm so d@mn sick of this exploitation of michael jackson. these stories are ridiculous, who the h@ll cares if someone has a claim against Jackson's estate, that's what probate is FOR.

LKL and other sites and blogs discuss contributions MJ is making postumously (sp) to Haiti; the remaking of We are the World, MJ Opus auction, etc..

And for anyone who is a fan or who is outraged by the simple fact that TMZ is making a joke out of MJ's death, why not send Howard Weitzman an email asking him why the hell he - MJ's Estate Attorney, is feeding BS and even talking to TMZ about their damn client.

F@ckin pisses me off.

Cath, it takes true intellect and insight to be able to step up to that level and see things in that way. Its looking BEYOND the surface. MJ was extremely intelligent, more so than most give him credit for. He loved learning and reading especially history, so its no surprise to me that he made the comments he did. I can totally see where he was going with it.

I agree with you, he was very intelligent on many things.

But you gotta admit it was funny when he thought the gold musical note they gave him for his birthday at the VMA'a was an award for artist of the millennium.

God, I'm gonna get killed for that, right?

98. Hi RA! Good (or rather should I say -- SUCH A RELIEF) to see you here. Sanity is present. Whew. :)

Don't be so closed minded and live life with tunnel vision all the time. It might broaden your mind. God forbid.

You're a joke, sanity is present. you're on a tabloid website nut!
Thus, I believe you're doing just that, living your life with tunnel vision. broaden your own damn mind. Stop making your stupid opinions like they're facts! Your ignorance and ARROGANCE is laughable!
