The Michael Jackson Estate just filed legal docs for lawyers who have worked for MJ pre and postmortem ... and the amounts are pretty breathtaking.
When you add it all up, the legal bills come to $5,185,757 (we didn't add up the cents).
The biggest single charge -- $1,259,289 from a law firm that never got paid for legal work it did when MJ was alive.
Some of the bills are for services Michael never paid for during his lifetime, but a number of the charges are for the last 6 months of legal work.
Everybody loves Michael Jackson these days ... especially lawyers.
Jackson Estate: Holy Crap, Lawyers are Expensive!
