Michael Jackson's Assistant

I Paid MJ's Bills ...

And I Want My Money Back!

EXCLUSIVE

0102_michael_williams_jackson_gettyMichael Jackson's personal assistant covered a bunch of expenses while the King of Pop was living in Vegas.  Now, three years later, he's finally getting around to demanding payment.

Michael Amir Williams filed a creditor's claim with the Michael Jackson Estate, claiming he's still out $28,569.83.  Among the items listed -- an $11K power bill, a $13K vehicle lease and almost $1K in phone bills.

As for why he took so long to file the claim, it's a little unclear -- Jacko kicked the bucket back in June 2009 ... and most everyone else filed their claims years ago.  In fact, he may have missed the filing deadline by a long shot.

Williams also filed a class action suit against AEG recently ... which AEG didn't really appreciate.

MJ had a "habit" of not paying his employees.. Read Maureen Orth's articles from Vanity Fair.. from before he died.. MJ was a real piece of work..

I love how the desire for money is seen as a basic evil by the posters here. Everybody's a gold digger and and mercenary. How about - if his claims are justified, justice will be served. Same thing with divorces. Any poster here would be a FOOL to ignore that the law allows them compensation in whatever matter - marriage, employment, whatever. But that wouldn't happen because EVERYBODY goes after what they believe they may be entitled to.

First thing, the man was killed 3 YEARS AGO! Leave him alone! The money he busted his ass for his entire life is for those kids. Stop being gold diggers. Second, he hated the term "Jacko". Show some respect for the greatest entertainer there ever was or ever will be.

TMZ: The name is Michael Jackson! He worked very hard for 40 years of his life to make that name! Please, call him by his name. Michael Jackson himself expressed how hurt he was when people called him by those names. And "kicked the bucket" is not exactly the expression you use to refer to a person's death. I don't hear that kind of expressions to refer to other celebrities who, really, have done it worse. After all, he worked very hard since he was a child; and he was a person, a human being, a son, brother and a father!

And if Amir Williams is saying the truth, I'm sure such large amounts of money were paid either by check or credit cards, which is court acceptable proof. Why he waited this long to file this claim? Maybe he is planning to include the interest on all that money! We'll have to wait for the story development. Maybe the statue of limitations is already gone. But if he is saying the truth, proofs that it's not the money you make but the money you save!
