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.

It was Michael who begged the doctor to put him to sleep using Propofol, yet this was somehow AEG's fault? Makes perfect sense.

They ALL need to get a job!!!
MJ's real earning days were long behind him when he died; and he spent $$$ like a drunken sailor, anyway.
Murray was negligent, but MJ was the one taking the Propofol.
No one forced it on him.
What a grosse family!!!

MJ was in a self made death spiral for years, not only financially, physically, emotional and mentally. He took down a lot of people with his own hands as a consequence.

Jackson's move on. No point would've, could've, should've. MJ sealed that deal.

And throw in the tea pot
What else can these people want ? Never notice when the Jackson's want money they stick together ,But when it's time to split money with the family all they do is fight .They cheat their own mother for a buck

That old bag would be on welfare if it wasn't for MJ. Greedy bitch!!! The kids aren't even MJ biological children. He just paid someone to have kids for him. And it's not like they don't already have enough while others are living in poverty. The old lady will die soon but she still instills in them the need to be greedy. It's become the Munster family!!!
