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?

Well, lets see, First off in my neck of the woods the estate is not obligated to send out person notices to any creditors. They do have to publish in the paper that a person died and the estate will be accepting debts from creditors from such & such date to such & such date. It is the creditors obligation to file his claims in a timely manner according to the published announcement.

What exactly does this article mean. It says that AQ helped Michael refinance $320,000,000 in loans. Does this mean that they loaned him the money or did they just kind of point him in the right direction to secure the loan ? If they didn't actually loan MJ the money why on earth would MJ or anybody for that matter agree to pay 3.2 million dollars for their help. Sounds really fishy to me. TMZ, did this AQ actually loan the money to MJ ??

Even the Chandlers have more cash than MJ did before his death.

Aq, why don't you go to the Chandlers house and ask Jordan to pay your bills? You are one dumb and pathetic blogger always bashing MJ here on TMZ. Talk about nuts. MJ is a legend while you are a NOBODY.
