Michael Jackson's Assistant

I Paid MJ's Bills ...

And I Want My Money Back!

1/6/2013 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Pay Amir the money. I shouldn't matter how long it took him to ask for it. He may have asked for it already. Who knows... Pay em!

If the claim is le*gitimate, it should be paid; the assistant should have ample proof that he paid Michael Jackson's bills. But something sounds fishy about this claim which should have been filed three years ago.

And, TMZ, STOP using the hated moiniker "Jscko." Michael Jackson did not like it when he was alive and he ALWAYS corrected the rude, ill-bred people who used it. Develop taste and manners, that thing called CLASS. The entertainer's name was Michael Jackson.

Thank you, Clobird. Read my above posts (33 & 34). I don't know why some people feel so entitled to call Michael such disrespectful names. May be they miss him too!

Michael probably paid this leach back with cash and now he just wants to get paid twice since no one can prove he didn't already get the money back. MJ had so many hanger-ons for his money and it continues even after he's dead.

I agree with Nan, Luz and Clobird.
If Amir can prove that MJ borrowed from him (and I think it is likely) then the claim should be paid. I think that is what MJ would have wanted.
As for not claiming sooner, maybe Amir was aware that the media may put a negative spin on the story. Maybe he didn't want to show his boss in a negative light. Maybe he just didn't need the money.
He seemed like a nice, respectful young man at the trial, not like the usual bottom feeders that surrounded Michael.

OK how in the hell would a personal assistant be able to afford to pay that amount of money for another persons bills????.....AND IF MJ was so broke how could he afford to pay this personal assistant ?....because clearly he was being paid because he has money....****This guy is broke and just looking for any way possible to get MJ's money because it's EASIER THAN WORKING.
