Jackson's assistant says he's owed $28K in expenses


Michael Jackson's former personal assistant has filed a claim against the deceased singer's estate claiming he is still owed money for his expenses.

Michael Amir Williams filed a claim with Jackson's estate for $28,569.83 for payments he made on behalf of Jackson while the superstar was living in Las Vegas.

Williams has demanded payment and includes in his list of expenses an $11,000 electricity bill, a $13,000 vehicle lease and almost $1,000 in phone bills, according to

The claim comes more than three years after the King Of Pop passed away in June 2009.

Last year, Williams also filed lawsuit against bosses at concert promotion company AEG, the firm behind Jackson's doomed London comeback shows, claiming they failed to act responsibly by hiring Dr. Conrad Murray as Jackson's personal physician. Murray is currently behind bars serving a four-year sentence on an involuntary manslaughter charge after he was found to have administered the fatal dose of anaesthetic which killed Jackson just weeks before his concerts kicked off.

Hey Amir. You ain't the only person ever not paid by the Jacksons. Everybody who ever worked for those screws were ripped off one time or another.
