Michael Jackson Estate

Floats Katherine $6 Million

To Pay Off S. Korean Concert Suit

10/5/2011 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005_katherine_jackson_EX_01Call Katherine Jackson the Six Million Dollar Mama -- because the Michael Jackson Estate just loaned her that amount to pay off her settlement with a South Korean newspaper.

According to an order entered by the court -- the Estate is giving Katherine the $6 mill to help her wrap up a 17-year old lawsuit filed against her by the Segye Times.

The paper originally won a $4 million judgment against Katherine and others for failing to deliver on a promised Jackson family concert -- but with interest she would owe more than $14 million.

Katherine's attorneys and the paper agreed on a settlement of $6 million -- which clearly she couldn't pay without help from the Estate.

There are strings attached -- according to court docs, Katherine must repay the full amount to the Estate, plus interest, within one year. But check this out -- she got a hell of a deal -- the interest rate is only .16%

The Bank of Michael Jackson ... best rates ANYWHERE!

Deadbeat... if she had just come off the money earlier she wouldn't have been in that hole, but I guess she's so accustomed to preferential treatment that she thought it would all disappear... It's S. Korea, it's not the Californian Celebrity Courts.

I can't figure out if she is evil like Joe or not. She sure seems to be obsessed with money.

The $4 million judgement was awarded against Katherine and others while Michael was alive, so IF he wanted to give her the money to pay it off, he would have. The estate should be handling the money for Michael's kids to inherit, not pay off his mother's long-outstanding debt.

Thanks Phantom. The 95 MTV Video Awards Performance by Michael was spectacular. His compilation of songs along with his mind-blowing dance moves was undeniably a magnificent show. He really mesmerized his audience. Again he looked sooo HOT!!! THANKS Phantom.

The more I hear about the Jackson family makes me think they are vile. Did Michael legally adopt the three children that are not biologically his? If NOT, take them away from this vile family!
