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.

Don't Pay it's the Jackson way.
They don't spend a dollar until sued.


Michael Jackson was very fortunate to find a personal assistant that looks like a twelve year old boy. He thought he had one in a wife, Lisa Marie, but the plumbing was all wrong.

I love how all the real haters, Wacko Jacko's fans, are so quick to rush judgement on someone that was actually very close to him.


Don't you think it's possible the estate has been stringing him along for so long he eventually got tired of it? In everything you hear about him and the people working around him, there is a colossal failure of responsibility.

Williams either wants justice, or needs money, or both. I wonder why he waited as long as 3 ½ years before he filed those claims… He also sued AEG a few weeks ago, claiming that they’re liable since they failed to act responsibly, first by hiring Murray, and then for failing to administer and monitor their actions properly.

It’s no secret that MJ had financial problems the last years of his life. If Williams is a decent man, and could afford it, it’s possible he paid some of MJ’s bills, especially the absolutely necessary ones, like those he claims, electricity, telephone and car lease. If he’s able to prove this, and in addition that he was promised to be refunded, he will get the money back, MJ’s estate has been efficient / effective in such matters.

Williams expected to earn good money on “This Is It”. AEG agreed to pay MJ’s staff up to $7.5 million for their services connected with the O2 concerts in London. But then Murray killed Michael, and it didn’t happen.

Murray is the reason why Williams, and many more, lost their jobs and expected future income when Michael died. Perhaps it would’ve been more fair (but not as lucrative) to sue him.

MJ fans go crazy on whoever they feel is against him. You all are beyond delusional and it needs to stop. So many people have been screwed by MJ's estate when it comes to money, so why is it hard to believe that he was too? On another note, I wish that I had $30,000 just laying around to lend to my friends whenever they needed it.

And TMZ really should use pictures of MJ in his early years when writing stories about him. I mean no disrespect but his latest pictures creep me out.

What I Think    

I'm starting a mental hospital for the treatment of Michael Jackson fans and am going to hire Dr. Murray when he gets out of jail and make him director of our euthanasia program.
