Bahrain Company Didn't Get Memo On MJ's Death

11/19/2010 4:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Not that we're trying to flatter ourselves, but don't people in Bahrain get TMZ?

Michael Jackson Estate
AQ Business Consultants has filed a petition in the Michael Jackson Estate case, asking the judge for permission to belatedly file a creditor's claim, on grounds it didn't know there was a time limit in asking for money.

AQ claims it helped Michael refinance $320,000,000 in loans, for which it was entitled to a $3.2 million fee.  AQ claims it's still owed $1.2 mil.

The deadline for filing a claim has passed, but AQ claims it didn't get proper notice.

Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for the Estate, tells TMZ,  "I don't believe the claim has any merit but they're late in filing regardless."

But here's the thing ... TMZ is big in Bahrain, so what's the deal?

These leeches who finally get the money they feel they deserve from his estate; I'm sure they smile initially...but once that money slowly gets spent..how good do they feel after time passes I wonder? Money comes and goes. MJ was alive, they "helped him out financially", and now he's gone. Unless they're sleeping in boxes by carts filled with their personal belongings, I consider it money lost from a cause they believed in at the time. R.I.P, MJ.

Odds are they would be screwed even if they filed a claim on time. I'd bet there are so many creditors lined up that there's not near enough cash available to pay everyone in full. If possible TMZ should publish any financial information (Balance Sheet, etc.) that might have been submitted in these proceedings. It's likely that the average U.S. citizen had more net worth than MJ at the time MJ croaked.
