Katherine Jackson

LIVID Over Unpaid Workers

At MJ Tribute Concert

11/16/2011 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson
Katherine Jackson is upset she had anything to do with the recent Michael Jackson Tribute concert -- telling TMZ, Global Live better take care of the workers they allegedly failed to pay.

Scores of crew members recently went on Twitter to slam Global Live -- the concert producers -- and insist the company stiffed them after they busted their asses for the event.

Katherine's lawyer tells us, "After Mrs. Jackson did all she could to help promote and make this a great event for all of Michael's fans, she is extremely displeased to hear that concert promoters have allegedly failed to pay their bills."

The lawyer adds, "Katherine is hoping that they step up and take care of their obligations." So far no word back from Global Live.

Really? What about her "obligations" when her husband was beating the s**t out of Michael?

apparently, katherine's loyalty to the jacksons' wealthy life was more important than the kids' freedom to be kids.

LOL! WTF? .... LATOYA is JOINED with GLE on this b*tch.

Yeah... YOU didn't know, right. Bullchit! Stfu, KJ, your daughter takes after YOU. DEAL.

How long anyone figures it'll be before we hear that KJ found some way to whine and slobber her way into getting the Estate to pay these people.... LIKE SHE DID HER OWN nasty 17 yr long scamming out of paying that judgement against her - for attempting to rope and tie Micheal into that concert ILLEGALLY - and got them to "loan" her the $$$ to pay THEM off, FINALLY. Oh, and at a MUCH reduced rate.

As to Prince selling MJ knockoff jackets with his uncles, and not being held up to accountability due to his age? I DON'T THINK SO. Damn right he KNOWINGLY throws himself into the ring TO be judged. He just decided to BE one of the J Clan. And, Paris? Much the same with her support of Eminem, and LOVE of that trash POS woman beater Chris Brown, saying on Twitter that he's no woman beater, everyone that says so is just jealous of his talent! LOL!!

YEP. GET BLANKET OUTTA THERE, DAMMIT!

you're totally correct. the jacksins sadistically inflicted pain & guilt onto mj.

their royal fraud image was more important than kids in their family.

that's why mj kids also learned from mj's confused rants and brainwashed mind.

I was surprised anyone attended that show at all...But I won't be surprised if someone, either the promoter or one of the Jacksons will manage to get it paid for by the Estate, thereby legitimizing the concert and the crooks (there I said it) behind it...

Dr. Conrad Murray's Video Interviews Could Haunt Him At Sentencing HearingDr. Conrad Murray's Video Interviews Could Haunt Him At Sentencing Hearing

Radar Legal Editor

Dr. Conrad Murray's decision to participate in a do***entary about the Michael Jackson death trial could be used at his sentencing hearing on November 29, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The convicted felon sat down with the Today Show before being found guilty of killing Jackson on June 25, 2009.

“I don't feel guilty, because I did not do anything wrong, I am very, very sorry for the loss of Michael... Michael is a personal friend. It's heartfelt. It's been painful," Murray told Savannah Guthrie.

Murray's interview with Guthrie, and a British reporter, as well as the do***entary which aired in the U.S. on MSNBC last Friday, could be played by the District Attorney at the sentencing hearing.

"The DA is considering playing excerpts of Murray's interviews. It's admissible, and completely legal. It's very compelling evidence, as Murray told the investigating officers a very different series of events that took place, than what he revealed during what was aired on television,” a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline.com.

“Walgren hasn't decided if he is going to play the interviews, but it only makes his case stronger that Judge Pastor should sentence Murray to four years in state prison because of his inability to tell the truth, on a consistent basis."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the executors of Jackson's estate, John Branca and John McClain, blasted NBC for airing the do***entary. The executors fired off a letter to the network which said, "No sooner was Conrad Murray ordered led away in handcuffs after his conviction on manslaughter charges in the death of Michael Jackson than we discovered your MSNBC network inexplicably will showcase him in primetime Friday night as if he is worthy of celebrity.

“Dr. Murray's victim, Michael Jackson was a loving father, an incredible talent and someone who had much left to give the world. Dr. Murray is a convicted felon who a judge felt compelled to have placed in handcuffs and jailed immediately after the jury delivered its verdict. He is not someone NBC Universal should be giving a platform on a prime-time pedestal."

The do***entary also highlighted the bickering between Murray's lawyers, Ed Chernoff and Michael Flanagan. RadarOnline.com was first to report that during the trial, things had gotten so bad between the two lawyers, that Chernoff, who lives in Houston, moved out of Flanagan's Southern California home. Chernoff had been staying with Flanagan to save his client money.

During one shocking scene of the do***entary, Flanagan says, "F**k you," to Chernoff during an argument over the defense strategy. Murray criticized Flanagan by saying, "I take offense when my damn attorney is not prepared for that man," referring to prosecution witness Dr. Alon Steinberg.

Stay tuned to RadarOnline.com for developments on this story.

KJ should pay it if Globel Live doesn't. It is her Responsibility! LaToya is in bed with Globel Live, and it was LaToya's and KJ's idea to put on this shame of a Tribute Concert in the first place. So if they won't pay - KJ should pay them then go after re-imbursement from Globel Live in Court for the expenses. JMO

Pegasus, I think that judge Pastor is as disgusted with Murray as we are. We heard his words on verdict day - they were harsh, although put forward in a neutral manner.
Michael Pastor is a highly intelligent man, and he, as most of us, can see right through Murray´s lies.
I think there is a very good chance Murray will get max penalty. It would be nice with something extra thrown in...
