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.

Here is a question to the kids...how about getting real jobs instead of trying to live off your pathetic father's life?

The Jackson family is simply UGLY as whale crap. Look at them, they stink and would turn a funeral down an alley. Momma Jackson is not as ugly as daddy jackson but close. No wonder the FREAK had so much plastic surgery he wanted to not look like any of them and be a little white boy.

Before you judge someone, try to be in their shoes and see the situation their way. May I remind everyone that Michael loved his mom very much. Paris's name is Paris Katherine Jackson for crying out loud. I do not think it's right for calling them such names like 'freaks' or 'ugly greedy people'. They just want justice for a lost that they are still mourning over. Are you really going to buy that the cause of Michael Jackson's death was a heart attack? He was murdered. There are horrible people in this world who wanted stuff from Michael but he learned how to resist to give in to these people. Therefore he was murdered. Open your eyes, all these tabloids are distractions from the real situation, the truth. Michael's heart is now being torn even when he is gone in heaven.Now go away you ignorant people.

Comments like this make me SICK!!! Am I the only one who thinks that they already have more money than they could spend in THREE lifetimes???? It is an insult to the general population who struggle just to make ends meet, or to do without the basics!!! They should do something positive with their wealth and help others instead of lining their own pockets!!!

I read that Michael Jackson was adamant that Dr. Murray was hired as his personal physician I don't understand how AEG Live could be held responsible. The Jackson clan is going to be humiliated in court. If anything they should. be compensated with the amount Jackson may've earned for the concerts he performed. If it can be proven that he was physically unfit to complete the advertised shows then the Jacksons. shouldn't be paid anything. After Thriller Jackson's career plummeted so where they come up with $40b, he wouldn't have generated that. for the remainder of his. life, had he lived.
