Jacksons v AEG Timeline Legal

Another lawsuit for Jacko estate to consider

By | Published on Monday 25 January 2010

Another party has joined the list of people making legal claims against the estate of Michael Jackson. According to US media there are now active lawsuits claiming some £12.5 million from the estate, most relating to alleged unpaid fees or collapsed projects involving the late pop star.

The latest comes from a US-based company called Machine Management (not the London-based artist management firm of the same name) who claim they are owed £178,125 relating to three aborted Jacko projects, one to set up a film company, another to launch a film festival in Oman, and the third a planned climate change awareness charity. TMZ say a rep for the lawyers managing the Jackson estate have confirmed receipt of the Machine Management’s claim.

Jackson, of course, was sued by numerous people and companies in the years leading up to his death, though the estate is arguably in a better position to settle than he was when alive, despite the millions in debts the singer left behind. Partly because Jackson himself isn’t alive to continue to run up millions of new debts, and partly because the previously tarnished Jacko franchise has been reenergised since the singer’s passing.
