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.

I'm sick of all these gold digging maggots who even after MJ's untimely death continue to try a feed off him. If they put as much effort into trying to get a job as they do filing these bogus claims then the sky's the limit for them. Leave MJ alone. He was tried and NOT convicted. It doesn't matter what thoughts we have, he has been declared innocent. Let him Rest In Peace. Hee! Hee!

Who ever this person is take em out in the prison yard and put a bullet through their head. I'm so sick of these deadbeat opportunists, and I'm one of the people who thinks that whole pedophile thing was a massive conspiracy by these sickos who didn't wanna work for a living anymore and saw cha ching when their kids got near Jackson and his admitted screwy love for kids which no doubt comes from his crazy Motown brotown upbringing.. Who wouldn't be strange being the child star of your entire family Music business? For his entire life mind you.. I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did under that scrutiny and knives being chucked at him all day. All he did was bring people joy and for that he was excoriated and exploited by everyone from his freaking money hungry dentist (the Jordy Kids dad) to his filthy rich dermo who exploited his dislike for his African American features and his family who exploited his kindness and talent and money., How would anyone else feel? I woulda killed em all........
