Now that Michael Jackson has passed, it seems like everyone is claiming that the King of Pop didn’t pay up. According to TMZ, it’s estimated that the total money that people are claiming Jackson owes will amount to over $20 million once the numbers are tallied up.

Apparently a memorabilia collector is suing Michael’s estate for $5 million, someone else who wants a cut of the “Thriller” music video’s earnings is suing for $1 million and Dr. Tohme Tohme, Jackson’s former advisor, wants $2.3 million.

TMZ did mention that while the claims are likely to exceed $20 million, it’s not probable that all of them will be paid, as some are blatantly “bogus”.
