Joe Jackson -- I Want Half a Billion Bucks

10/20/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's dad, Joe Jackson, wants somewhere between $10 million and $500 million from Dr. Conrad Murray to compensate him for the loss of his son's support ... this according to new documents obtained by TMZ.

In the docs -- part of Joe's wrongful death lawsuit -- he claims the money he seeks is in "the realistic range of provable damages."

Joe says 20% of his damages are for loss of support, 40% are for emotional distress and 40% are for "loss of comfort, aid, society and companionship."

And this is huge ... Dr. Murray says he's broke and can't settle anything because his insurance company is refusing to cover him.

Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, also says he may take the depositions of more than 60 people who have info regarding Jackson's death.

Dr. Murray says in his new filings he does not want to sit for a deposition until after the criminal case runs its course.  It's a whole 5th Amendment thing.

Pimp Daddy is really reaching. Get a job or file for Social Security. Don't you get it, Michael didn't want you to get any of his estate. You get your money through Katherine anyway. If she is foolish enough to put up with you and give you money, that's her decision.

Joe and the rest of the Jacksons need to support themselves. Keep their greedy fingers to themselves and STFU.

I can't believe what a slime ball Joe Jackson is even after Michel died. Dude wants money for lost companionship? What a joke. According to everything I have read, Michael barely spoke to his father so there was no companionship to lose. And I just can't believe he is trying to make money off his dead son. I hope Michael haunts him.

He sure has expensive tastes in thinking that MJ would be able to generate THAT much money to support someone who beat him as a child!

I should have clarified that if Katherine wants to give Pimp Daddy part of her money, then so be it. It's her who is going to do with less. Any money coming from Dr. Murray is going to go to the estate trust and that means Pimp Daddy gets none of it!

Joe Jackson still has not proven he even has legal standing to bring a wrongful death suit.

Let Joe Jackson and Michael Lohan share a room and bore each other.

Shame on you Joe Jackson. Even in death you are making your child work for you to no end. I didn't agree with a lot of what MJ did, but he didn't &doesn't deserve your screwed up sense of self. Hell, you helped make him what he was and probably helped to cause his untimely death in the long run. What a selfish bastard.
