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.

I have lived my whole life hearing about these disgusting degenerate people. They will never change. Sick, greedy, money grubbing, s*** of the earth. They are an embarrassment to to world. I wish they would all freaking die a grisly death. Who wants to bet they turn Paris into a popstar? set up a fake relationship between her and Bieber. cha-ching

50 million would have been sufficient plus an apology and lesson for AEG to not do this things in the future.
BUT 40 billion is horrendous and unreasonable it's hovering on the edge of profiting from your love ones death. It somehow endangers Michael's legacy to being cheap

Everyone knows the kids are not bio, they were adopted, doesn't matter that has nothing to do with any of this he was still their dad whether you like it or not. However, don't bash the kids for what the adults are doing, this is the work of Joe, katherine and siblings. Also, doesn't matter what hate you still want to toss at MJ, he was not druggie and not molester, if you have proof of molester then bring your proof forward you'd be the most famous person in the world. Doesn't matter what you say anyway, ur just not happy cuz you didn't get the verdict you hoped for. HOWEVER, THAT TOO PHKG MUCH MONEY! DON'T BLAME KIDS BLAME THE PHKD UP JACKSONS.

FIRST OFF Michael Jackson's career was NEVER in a "downward spiral" and AEG should know better than others since only the tickets for the This Is It Tour went SOLD OUT INSTANTLY for their own admission!!! Michael Jackson's career was NEVER affected by the disgusting plotted child molestation case nor by his trip to Middle East, indeed AEG itself was eager to convince him to go on tour again!!! They are just dirty liars as always!!!
I had NO doubt greedy unnatural mother Katherine was after money ALL the time, it's disgusting she even dropped restitution request to ask for more money to AEG which is much more rich than murderer and involved Michael Jackson's children in her vulgar hunt for money, even convincing Prince to testify when all that she wants he tells is that AEG was forcing him to perform despite his weak health, when the Coroner stated and testified that Michael Jackson was healthier than any other person of his age!!! They both are disgisting and should pay!!!! Anything for money!!!
