Holy frickin’ crap! Michael Jackson’s three kids and his mom want over $40 billion from AEG Live for Jackson’s death.
Legal documents claim that the three kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket and Jackson’s mom, Katherine are taking legal action against the entertainment company for its ill-perceived and negligent hiring (as TMZ states it) of Dr. Conrad Murray.
In these documents, the kids claim they want $10 billion for the future earnings Jackson would have made if he was still living. They said they would also like an additional $50 million for various other damages.
AEG Live claims that the $40 billion request is crazy talk (our words) since Jackson’s career was on a downward spiral. It had been going downhill since the alleged child molestation charges as well as his self-imposed exile to the Middle East. They say the damage charges are based on speculation.
Do you think the kids and mom deserve the money? If not, how much should they get?
TMZ came out with a pretty crazy story about Casey Anthony. Check it:
Nobody wants to pay for a Casey Anthony interview … but there IS someone who’s offered to pay $10,000 in order to keep the alleged child murderer SILENT for the rest of her life … TMZ has learned.
According to new court documents filed in Anthony’s bankruptcy case, Casey’s camp has received a $10k offer from a man hoping to obtain exclusive rights to Casey’s life story.
But the buyer doesn’t want to make a movie, put her on TV or write a book — the docs explain his sole motivation is to “prevent Ms. Anthony or others from publishing or profiting from her story in the future.”
The man seeking to purchase the rights is James M. Schober — and as far as we can tell, he’s just a random guy with no ties to Anthony or her family.
The trustee handling the bankruptcy case has been tasked with identifying anything of value that can be used to pay back the $800k Casey owes her creditors.
As far as we can see, there’s no way the judge will green-light Schober’s plan. First, even Casey doesn’t have the exclusive right to her story — someone could write an unauthorized biography. Besides that … there’s no way a judge would force the sale of thoughts in Casey’s head.
It’s very weird … but the bankruptcy trustee is totally into selling Casey’s story, because he’s asking the court if he can create a bidding war.
He shouldn’t hold his breath.
