Michael Jackson’s family filed a lawsuit, reclaiming assets worth $1 million

According to TMZ, the heirs of the late artist Michael Jackson have filed a petition in court, asking to recover assets worth $1 million that were stolen in 2009.

In the application, they claimed that film producer Jeffre Phillips, the ex-husband of Michael Jackson ‘s sister (Toya Jackson), stayed at the villa for 9 days to attend the King of Pop’s 2009 funeral. This man took advantage of the chaotic situation at that time to steal many valuable personal items of the late artist.

Stolen items included laptops, driver’s licenses, clothing, iPods, CDs and DVDs believed to be recordings of unreleased performances and concerts.

They also accused film producer Jeffre Phillips of making a fortune through the sale of a series of Michael Jackson’s handwritten notes, photo albums, a bag, award trophies and a Michael Jackson doll. .

Lawyers representing Michael Jackson’s family stated: “This act is terrible and inhumane. Jeffre Phillips even took the pajamas that Jackson wore in the last moments of his life.” These allegations were made one day before the 13th anniversary of the death of legendary Michael Jackson.

In November 2021, a source revealed that film producer Jeffre Phillips organized an auction of items belonging to the late artist. Jeffre Phillips also admitted that he stole the above items to create trust with customers.

Lawyers have recovered some items, but they believe that Jeffre Phillips still holds many of the works Michael Jackson composed and recorded before his death. The lawsuit was brought to recover all of the late artist’s assets and prevent future illegal actions.

Members of the Jackson family all own huge assets

According to Marca’s sources, the late pop star owned a fortune of $500 million before his death. However, the late artist had to declare bankruptcy after receiving a request to repay $380 million in debt from Bank of America because of his lavish spending.

Before he died, he had a debt of 500 million USD from a bank debt of 380 million USD and interest. Michael Jackson passed away at his home in June 2009.

According to Forbes, Michael Jackson is a star who still creates huge wealth after his death. Over the past 13 years, the real estate he left behind continued to increase in price.

In May 2021, an American judge ruled that the pop star’s net worth (from real estate) was at 111 million USD. Forbes said that since 2009, the late star has generated an additional 2.27 billion USD.

According to his will, Michael Jackson left 40% of his assets to his three children, 20% to children’s charities and the remaining 40% to his mother, Katherine. Most members of the Jackson family own assets worth tens or hundreds of millions of dollars.
