Jackson Estate Still Facing Lawsuits

JacksonAs I have previously discussed, after five years from the death of Michael Jackson, his estate has had multiple days in court and increased in value, but not all of the issues have yet been resolved. Here are three unresolved claims that must still be faced by Jackson’s estate:

  • IRS tax request: The Jacksonestate and the IRS are still in dispute over how much the estate should be valued at, and the IRS wants over $700 million in taxes and penalties from the estate.
  • Accusations of child molestation: Wade Robson, a choreographer who stayed at the Neverland Ranch as a child is claiming that Jackson molested him and his suit against the estate is still unresolved.
  • Claims by Jackson’s previous personal manager: Tohme Tohme has sued the estate for payment on the work he did for Jackson in the reviving his career.
