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.

Wow, how long is this going to continue? This is what happens when we stopped holding people accountable for their own actions!! While the doctor belongs behind bars, MJ was responsible for his messed up decisions as an adult.

get over it...yes he was very talented...but he was a drug addict and it caught up to him...no one to blame but himself. Those kids need to be taught to grow up and realize they will have to work to support themselves because that family will run out of money since Michael was supporting all of them except for Janet.

To Katherine Jackson, it's too late to think about saving for retirement now ; you should have thought about that long ago when you exploited your dead son .

To the offspring, There is no such things as entitlements.GET JOBS!

These people are shameless! They pimped their son out at an early age and have been living off of him forever. Bunch of uneducated fools. What do they need?? More family nose jobs??

Not to worry,everybody! They don't really want 40 Billion. I'm sure Katherine will be willing to settle out of court for a mere 20 Billion.

Greed get out of hand doesn't it? Apparently, they did not learn to be charitable from their Son/Father.
