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.

Sweet, she waits 35 years to say anything and waits until a guy disappears for 2 years. First, HE continued to have sex with her? Has she heard the word "no"? Second, why didn't she confront him and make arrangements at that point. What is she, 55 years old by now and this is when she decides that she has been inconvenienced all these years and must have money NOW!!! Thirdly, how would she ever prove anything, 35 years after the fact. Michael said it best: I'll never betray or deceive you my friend but...
If you show me the cash then I will take it.
If you tell me to cry then I will fake it.
If you give me a hand then I will shake it.
You'll do anything for money.

She say's he knew about the blister's? Then if it is true why did she drop her knickers? Some people will do anything to make easy money. Sad so sad that people should make story's like that up. Get a grip you scheming witch.

Wow. And Some people still believe MJ was a child molestor. He was dogged by false claims and opportunist his whole life and even in death these people won't leave him alone.
