Another Day, Another Lawsuit: This one wants $29 million – MiniB#48
JULY 18 2007 – In yet another attempt by someone else to get their hands into Michael Jackson's pockets, another entity has filed a lawsuit against the singer, his mother Katherine, and others claiming they are owed $29.7 million in "unpaid brokerage fees". Yes, you read correctly. HIS MAMA TOO!

Jackson Denies B.E.T. Snub Michael Jackson has blasted claims he was too busy to appear at the Black Entertainment Television awards, branding the allegations “false and defamatory.” The singer was asked to appear at the B.E.T. ceremony in Los Angeles on June 26 to perform a special “Thriller” album tribute and to present his mentor Diana Ross with a Lifetime Achievement Award — but news agencies claimed Jackson was “too incapacitated to appear.” Jackson’s spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain says the information “being disseminated in the media with regards to Mr. Jackson’s invitation is false. We cannot understand why anyone affiliated with the program would deliberately misrepresent the facts or attempt to defame Mr. Jackson.
MIJACS REP RAYMONE BAIN IS UPSET: Letter to Lee Bailey addresses yesterdays story regarding BET and Md/Va house hunting. Although EUR is just the messenger, Raymone K. Bain is too through with our passing along what she has described as misinformation from Fox.com columnist Roger Friedman regarding her client, Michael Jackson. On Wednesday, we mentioned Friedmans column about Jacksons invitation to attend the recent BET Award ceremony for a special Thriller album tribute and to present his mentor Diana Ross with her Lifetime Achievement Award. Friedman said plans fell through because Jackson was too incapacitated to appear. In a letter to EURs Lee Bailey, Bain says Jackson had conversations with the network about attending the ceremony, but the information being disseminated in the media with regards to Mr. Jackson’s invitation is false. We cannot understand why anyone affiliated with the program would deliberately misrepresent the facts or attempt to defame Mr. Jackson.
