CPA -- Michael Jackson Stiffed Me

2/18/2010 8:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A CPA claims Michael Jackson stiffed him for years over a $60,000 fee ... this according to a new creditor's claim obtained by TMZ.

Michael Jackson

Diane Williams filed her claim in the Michael Jackson Estate case, alleging she prepared Michael's 2006 tax package and never got paid for it.

Williams submitted emails showing she was promised Michael would pay the money by July 25, 2008 but never got the dough.

Apparently there was a falling out that led Jackson to Williams, because on August 16, 2006, Michael Jackson personally signed a letter requesting that the prior accountants "cease and desist from signing for my certified mail..."

Jackson also wrote he did not want the prior accountants to open his letters or legal documents in the future.

Judging from the signature, Michael, who always had a flamboyant signature, was pissed.

He probably sent that letter to prevent future $400 per hour legal fees. Why would it take so long to determine he owed them this money? Since MJ is not here to tell his side of the story, we will have to see how Branca and McClain respond on his behalf. RIP, MJ.

Yet another worm comes out of the woodwork. Michael Jackson passed away almost 7 1/2 months and the claims keep coming. Why so long to place a claim?

And before all the ding-dongs start the nonsense about Michael never paying his bills, he had advisors, managers and lawyers directing his signature and payments.

Money corrupts and unfortunately the people who were around Michael couldn't help themselves and fell into taking advantage of Michael's gentle soul and pure heart and they took all they could from him. Time after time, we see that people whom he trusted and employed to manage his business affairs only helped themselves to his money. Then others took another route against Michael and engaged in outright extortion by whatever means, even it meant destroying a human being who was so selflessly generous and loved by countless millions around the world. Michael was too good for this world!
