Michael Jackson's Former Manager Vs Estate (Recap)

On Tuesday Michael Jackson's Former Manager Vs Estate was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) Michael Jackson's former manager has filed a lawsuit against the MJ Estate, claiming he saved Michael Jackson after the molestation trial and in return he's been stiffed to the tune of millions of dollars.
Tohme Tohme says he was Michael's Manager from 2008 until shortly before his death. Tohme claims he rehabilitated MJ both financially and personally after the trial, by coordinating media releases and shooting down false and malicious news stories about Michael.

Tohme says he saved Neverland by arranging refinancing, for which he was entitled to $2.3 million.

But the big thing -- Tohme takes credit for suggesting that MJ's final tour would be called, "This Is It." According to the suit, during a discussion with Michael and AEG, Tohme chimed in that Michael selling the name, "This Is It" in a "high-spirited tone" would be a smash.

In addition to the $2.3 mil, Tohme wants 15% of the money Michael made from July, 2008 until the present.

The Estate has already rejected Tohme's claim and even filed legal docs today, claiming Tohme took advantage of Michael and did nothing for him.

Summery and updates about the case

There are two dueling lawsuits: Tohme's complaint against Estate asking for money, Estate's complaint against Tohme claiming breach of duty. Tohme's complaint against Estate asking for $ is pending Labor Commissioner decision. Estate says Tohme wasn't licensed to be a talent agent Estate claims as Tohme wasn't licensed to be a talent agent, he is not entitled to any money and any & all agreements with MJ is void.  Labor Commissioner is going to make a decision on that. If successful Estate can void any agreements between Tohme & MJ. Estate's complaint against Tohme claiming breach of duty is ongoing at probate court albeit slowly.Judge ordered Tohme to provide accounting Judge's order "compelling Tohme to account for all monies and other property of Jackson's in his possession and control at any time all monies & property of Jackson's misappropriated by Tohme, &all actions and transactions taken by Tohme with respect to Jackson's assets " Obviously Tohme isn't happy and he's trying to get out of these by making dismissal requests. Estate is opposing. It's an ongoing situation

Tohme situation also has connections to Neverland and Michael's drawings (currently in possession of Brett Livingstone-Strong) For Neverland based on MJ-Tohme contract if Estate tries to buyback Neverland from Colony Capital they will be required to pay Tohme 10% fee If Estate can void Tohme's contracts, they can buy back Neverland without paying Tohme. They can also try to challenge the deal w/ CCapital Some fans criticize Estate for not buying Neverland from CCapital but in reality it makes sense to wait for Tohme lawsuits
end  Tohme abused power of attorney&gifted MJ's drawings to Brett L-Strong, If Estate can win lawsuit they can challenge ownership& get them back

How do they argue 2 POA signed by MJ? No independent counsel. Dennis Hawk was Tohme's counsel and rep MJ as well
