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!

In court documents obtained by MJJR.net, Transitional Investors, a private investment company, claims to have had a part in Jackson refinancing a loan, and that they were supposed to get 9% of the entire transaction value.

The problem is that their alleged connection with Jackson was through Don Stabler and Darien Dash of Precient-fame. If the name "Precient" sounds familiar, it should. Dash owns the company, which apparently held themselves out as representatives of Jackson.

Jackson Denies B.E.T. Snub

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.

MiJac’s Rep Raymone Bain is Upset – EURweb

MIJAC’S REP RAYMONE BAIN IS UPSET: Letter to Lee Bailey addresses yesterday’s 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 Friedman’s column about Jackson’s 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 EUR’s 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.”

Sony BMG seeks Michael Jackson’s backing for move to sign songwriters
Dan Sabbagh, Media Editor

Sony is in talks with Michael Jackson to renegotiate the terms of their music publishing joint-venture, which would allow Sony BMG, the sister company, to sign songwriters for the first time.

A clause in the existing agreement between the Thriller singer and the Japanese electronic giant prevents Sony backing a music publisher to rival their Sony/ATV venture, which has the copyrights to all 252 Beatles songs in its catalogue.
