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.

This is nothing but GREED!! We all know who is truly behind this, and its not the adopted kids or however they have been listed. 40 Billion, really. I think they have already gotten more than any of them deserve, and I am more than sick of hearing about it in the news or on the blogs or websites.Just let them go away.

Sad greed takes over good sense, these kids need an education and a career to make their own 10 billion dollars. They have lots of sad dissappontments ahead of them, I fear. They ain't got nottin coming.

I don't think that Katherine Jackson and these kids want $40 million at all, but I DO think that some high flyin' legal team that's, right now, floating in the stratosphere does! So, don't hate on the family for this. They might have "hired" some attorneys, but they are not as smart as the lawyers are!

Wonder if Mrs. Jackson and the children paid back all the people that were not paid when Mr. Jackson went bankrupt? They are richer now then when Mr. Jackson was living. Shame on all of them.

I can see a lawsuit but wow.. this is just crazy. Perhaps his children should be entitled to a smaller amount in trust and take a lesson from their father about hard work and perserverance, and make their own fortune!

Nobody forced Jackson to take those drugs! Nobody shoved them down his throat! Doctors only persribe medication, they don't force it down thier patients' throat. This family is just greedy, and won't accept the fact that Jackson was just a pervert and druggie, and his death is his own fault!

How much money is ENOUGH money? These narcississtic, self-important people just seem to want more and more, just to maintain their lavish, dysfunctional lifestyle. Just go away.

These people are so full of themselves that it's sick to think of any of them. The golden cow has passed away but we can make more money if we sell the meat.........lol. Money grubbing deadbeats the whole group of them.
