Michael Jackson Appearance

Triggers Suit

5/20/2010 6:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even in death, Michael Jackson generates lawsuits ... this time it involves a douchey clothing designer, a car museum and a phantom gun.


Photographer Stephen Winick claims he was brutally attacked by security guards hired by Christian Audigier of Ed Hardy fame during his 50th birthday party.  Michael Jackson attended the bash, which was thrown at the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A.

In Winick's lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, he claims he innocently snapped a pic of Jackson, but Audigier was upset and wanted to delete the photo.  So Winick claims Audigier unleashed his guards, who then allegedly beat the crap out of Winick.

Winick says one of the guards yelled "gun, gun" to amp up the attack.

In addition to Audigier, Winick is suing Ed Hardy, the museum and the guards.  He wants unspecified damages.

Everyone wants some of this dead man's money and are willing to do or say anything to get it. No wonder Michael was lonely. He couldn't trust anyone around him.

All of Michael's two faced fake friends are loving trying to ruin him since he died. Notice they waited until he was dead to do it.
No wonder he thought he could trust children. He sure as hell couldn't trust the fake ass grown people around him. The only people he had to really love him was his mother, children and most if not all of his family.
