Creditor's Claim: Michael Jackson Gave Me Herpes

5/20/2011 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two bizarre creditors' claims were just filed in the Michael Jackson Estate case by a woman who claims Michael gave her an STD in the late '70s and it ruined her life.


Shellie Smith claims, "In 1979, I started having sexual relations with the decedent.  Shortly thereafter, I began to get blisters on my legs, face and lips.  He was my only partner."

Smith continues, "At this time, I am unable to have a full and vibrant life due to the complications of this disease."

But she also filed a second claim with different facts, stating she began having sex with Michael in 1977 and was diagnosed with herpes simplex.  In this claim, Smith says, "[Michael] knew I was getting blisters on my body, however, he continued to have sex with me."

Smith is asking the Estate for $10 million. 

Good luck ...  For starters, the statute of limitations ran out decades ago, the deadline for filing a creditor's claim has long expired, and the claim sounds, well ...

Oh, and this isn't Smith's first crazy claim -- in January 2010, she filed one saying she and Michael were secretly married and she was entitled to spousal support. That claim was rejected.

Is she related to the last nutcase that went after Micheal's Estate. How about a rebuttal from Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley, didn't they have sex with Mikey? coughcough.

Whatever. This lawsuit will be shorted lived just like her first one. Someone obvisously needs some serious help. Kind of sad when you think about it. Hope someone does help her.

LMAO!!! This is the funniest thing I've heard, today! The time to file this lawsuit has "come and gone" and why wait until the man is "dead & buried" to file it? Michael Jackson was very active during the 1970's & 80's. That would have been an "ideal" period to collect, if this claim was at all valid. Times are hard and people will do "anything" hoping that someone will pay them to go the h.e.l.l away!!! Good luck with that one!!!

What I want to know is why people like this are not charged when they file lawsuits like this? When the courts know they are lying, should they not be charged with fraud???
I wish lawyer friday was still on!!
