Der MJ-Estate verklagt Tohme Tohme und sagt er habe MJ um Millionen betrogen. Demnach soll Tohme Tohme Vereinbarungen mit MJ geschlossen haben, die ihm 35000 Dollar plus Spesen zusagten unabhänig von der Arbeit die er leistet. Zudem habe Tome einen Deal verlinkt, der ihm 15% von allem garantiere was MJ verdiente. Tome habe MJ auch zu einem Kreditgeber für die Refinazierung von Neverland eingeführt. Im Gegenzug erhielt TomeTome 2,4 Mio. nur für die Einführung. Zudem habe er eine Zustimmung von MJ erwirkt für 100000 Dollar/Monat für die TII-Tour. Die Estate-Anwälte rechnen mit einer Klage von Tome wegen dem Geld was er behauptet, dass ihm MJ schuldet und der Estate will ihn ausschalten bevor die Klage eingereicht ist. Der Estate fragt auch nach Schadensersatz. Michael Jackson hatte TohmeTohme 3 Monate vor seinem Tod entlassen.
Ergänzend zum TMZ-Artikel steht in den folgenden beiden Artikeln noch, dass MJ die Verträge mit Tome Tome ohne jeglichen rechtlichen Beistand unterzeichnete. MJ habe Tome 2 Power of Attorney-Dokumente unterzeichnet, die ihm außerordentliche Macht gaben. Zudem geht er darauf ein, dass Tohme Tohme Neverland leerräumen ließ und eine Versteigerung bei Julien`s anberaumte bis Jackson die Auktion mit einem Anwalt stoppte. Tome nahm Besitz über Eigentum und Geld was MJ gehörte und lagerte die Sachen in verschiedenen Lägern und der Estate habe nach MJ`s Tod Schwierigkeiten gehabt den Besitz zurückzubekommen. Pech für Tome, dass der Julien`s Katalog das gesamte Inventar von Neverland dokumentierte.
]Bestandteil der Klage ist auch die Kunstkollektion. Der Estate sagt Tohme Tohme habe 2008 einfach die gesamte Kollektion an den Künstler Brett Livingstone Strong gegeben. Der Estate sagt Tome habe seine Power of Attorney missbraucht um Strong Copyrights zu geben die Michael besitzt. Die Kunst lagert derzeit in einem Hangar.
[MICHAEL JACKSON ESTATE Claims MJ's Manager Royally Screwed Him
Michael Jackson's Estate is going after Tohme Tohme, MJ's former manager, claiming he fleeced the singer out of millions of dollars.
TMZ has obtained legal docs filed by the Estate, claiming Tohme got Michael to sign agreements that earned him a fortune for doing nothing.
According to the papers, Estate attorney Howard Weitzman claims Tohme got MJ to agree to pay him $35,000 a month plus expenses as a flat fee -- regardless of what work Tohme performed. On top of that, Tohme inked a deal that gave him 15% of any money Michael made.
And there's more ...Tohme introduced Michael to a lender that refinanced Neverland. In return, Tohme got Jackson to pay him $2.4 million -- just for the introduction. And Tohme got MJ to promise him 10% of any profits if the Ranch was sold.
Tohme also got MJ to agree to pay him $100,000 a month for the "This is it" tour.
Estate lawyers are anticipating a lawsuit by Tohme against the estate for the money he claims he's owed, and the Estate wants to shut him down before a suit is filed.
The Estate is also asking for damages.
BTW, Michael fired Tohme 3 months before he died.
Michael Jackson Executors (Finally) Sue Singer's Final Manager
Michael Jackson‘s estate has finally filed a lawsuit against Tohme Tohme, who used to call himself “Doctor.” Tohme was Michael Jackson’s penultimate manager–meaning he was replaced just before Jackson’s death by Jackson’s longtime manager and friend, Frank DiLeo. But Tohme, the estate says in a complaint filed by attorney Howard Weitzman, ran amok during his short term between January 2008 and March 2009. It was Tohme, working for Thomas Barrack‘s Colony Capital, who pulled off the sale of Neverland to Colony. But according to the complaint, Jackson never understood that Tohme was also going to receive a finder’s fee for doing work for his own employer. Jackson had no lawyer representing him in his many signed agreements with Tohme, and so didn’t understand that when Colony came up with $24 million to bail out Neverland, Tohme would get $2.4 million.
Tohme, the complaint further reads, got Jackson to sign an agreement paying him $35,000 a month. He was also to receive 15% of all gross compensation Jackson received for anything he did in the entertainment field. Jackson signed not one but two Power of Attorney documents giving Tohme “extraordinary” powers. He also gave himself a $100,000 per month producers fee for the run of Jackson’s London concert dates–from July 2009 through at least March 2010. All of this Jackson signed without a lawyer, and despite numerous stories (many written by yours truly) about Tohme’s many assertions about his credentials being false.
It was during Tohme’s regime, for example, that the contents of Neverland were emptied and consigned to an auction house in Beverly Hills. The auction didn’t proceed when Jackson finally got a grip, and a lawyer, stopped the auction. Tohme then took back the contents and warehoused them. When Jackson died, the estate had to negotiate with him to get back the property. Out of luck was Julien’s Auction House, which published a now collectible catalog of everything that had been in Neverland.
“Tohme took possession and control of money and property that belonged to Jackson.Tomhe did not return to Jackson and refuses to deliver to the executors all of the property and cash belonging to Jackson that Tohme took possession and control of.”
On a side note, Tohme used to claim he was a doctor from Lebanon. But he could never prove to me that he was a doctor and when I questioned him about it in 2008, he told me wasn’t practicing. He did say he was Ambassador at Large to Senegal, but their Embassies denied it.
Jackson Estate Lawsuit: to Reclaim $900 Mil Art Collection
Part of the lawsuit filed today by Michael Jackson’s executors has to do with a $900 million art collection. It’s hard to believe, considering Jackson’s perilous fortunes when he was alive, that such a collection existed. But last summer LA Weekly visited a Santa Monica airport hangar where Jackson was stowing his personal art collection–art he had created and a few other tchotckes. At one time, Star Magazine (ahem) got an appraisal of $900 million for all this stuff. More importantly, the estate says that in 2008, Tohme Tohme, Jackson’s then manager, simply gave the whole collection to a Los Angeles artist named Brett Livingston Strong. Strong — and Jackson– have called this man a “modern day Michelangelo.” Anyway, the estate claims in its suit againt Tohme that he improperly used Powers of Attorney to give Strong copyrights that Michael owned. The art remains in the hangar. A longer piece about this can be read at http://www.artinfo.com/news/story/38...kson-art-feud/
