Michael Jackson's legal woes continue! Just days after news that his Thriller co-star was suing him, now his longtime rep is after his money.
Jackson’s spokesperson Raymone Bain has filed a petition against her former client saying he owes her money. She released a statement saying, “It is with deep regret that I find myself at this place, having to file a lawsuit against my longtime employer, and someone whom I have greatly admired and respected, Michael Jackson.”
She went on to say, “Mr. Jackson and I have had a long, productive and mutually beneficial business relationship. Unfortunately, Mr. Jackson has elected not to honor the financial obligations of our contractual relationship, despite my numerous attempts to amicably resolve this matter. I am sincerely disappointed in Mr. Jackson’s failure to honor his obligations.”
“This lawsuit will result in some discussion about the relationship between Mr. Jackson and me. Hypothetical theories, accusations and rumors, if gauging from the past, will be many. However, all of these will be replaced in court with the truth.”
In 2005, Bain was fired by Michael’s brother Randy just days before the singer’s acquittal on child molestation charges. But, in 2006 she was made General Manager of the Michael Jackson Company.
This sounds like a very sincere attempt by Bain to obtain money she is entitled to, but she's suing for $44 million dollars plus attorney fees, which sounds a little outrageous.
He’s worse with his money than Britney! Someone appoint a new financial advisor!
