Michael Jackson Estate

Sued for $1 BILLION

in Bizarre Lawsuit

Michael Jackson
owes a convicted criminal $1 BILLION for exploiting personal details about her life in his music -- this according to a bizarre and, dare we say, bogus lawsuit.

Kimberly Griggs filed the case in San Diego -- claiming she and Jackson had an intimate relationship beginning in 1979, which she says he chronicled in his albums "Off the Wall," "Thriller," "Bad," "Dangerous," and his greatest hits album ... "Number Ones."

Griggs -- who spent years in prison for burglary and robbery --  claims she was pissed that Michael exposed her personal secrets in his tunes, so to make things nice he promised to give her the rights to the songs.

She says she was stunned when MJ died and she was completely left out of his estate.

According to the handwritten lawsuit, Griggs wants $1 billion in damages.

Calls to MJ's Estate weren't returned, but we're guessing their response begins with the letters b and s.

You've gotta love people who sit in prison and learn how to file frivolous lawsuits. It's not a rare occurrence so I'm not sure why this is news.

If you made "sick" people pay full price for their doctor visits and prescriptions, they'd quickly become healthy & happy. If you added 1 year to the sentence of convicts for every lawsuit they filed while in jail and lost...they'd soon take up needlepoint.
