Michael Jackson

Kids, Mom Want

Over $40 BIL!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0315-katherin-kids-gettyMichael Jackson's 3 children and his mom Katherine want in excess of $40 BILLION from AEG Live for the death of the singer ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained legal docs which now lay out what Prince, Paris, Blanket and Katherine want from the entertainment company for its alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray.

The kids want $10 billion for all of the future earnings they claim MJ would have scored had he lived.

They want an additional $50 million for various other damages.

AEG Live claims the $40 billion is preposterous because Michael's career was in a downward spiral following the child molestation allegations, as well as self-imposed exile in the Middle East.  They claim the damage claim is based on rank speculation.

These Jacksons won't stop until the exact their pound of flesh, but they need to get over it. Their son/adopted father was a drug addict.

When the kids show that Michael made at least $10 Billion in his first 50 years of life then maybe they can make a claim. They are about as Wacko as Jacko

This is absolutely greed at its best. No regard for her son's legacy, just greed. Not sure if those kids are any better, look at that little one on the left. He's plotting evil.

M.J. spent the entire second half of his career chasing the almighty success of "Thriller" and failed. He turned into a freak,for some reason wanted children of his own and now after the fact there's a looming lawsuit for a totally unacceptable amount. I would think those kids are already well provided for and someone is being greedy.

If I was the lawyer for AEG, I'd say "OK, we'll pay you the ESTIMATED income...but before we cut the check...let's first back off the ESTIMATED costs. Like lawyers fees for continuing molestation lawsuits, payoffs to the kids to avoid court, the cost of constantly cancelling concerts, a sex change for Bonzo, the money pit known as Neverland, a life times supply of rubber noses, a truckload of drugs each month, 100 visits a month to quack doctors, etc, etc, etc...so, let's see what is left....Hmmm...do you have change for a dollar?"

Nobody greedier than this family. 40 BILLION DOLLARS WILL NOT BRING HIM BACK - YOU HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY TO LIVE ON FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES, SO WHY ASK FOR A CARTOONISH DOLLAR AMOUNT? Other than to look like the biggest family of leeches ever. Trying to make money off your dead relative just so you don't have to ever get a job.
The whole thing is sickening.
