Jacko ‘pleads ignorance’ in publicist’s caseJune 20th, 2009 - 12:14 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 20 (ANI): Michael Jackson has reportedly asked a judge to drop the case filed against him by his former publicist, saying he was never served with legal papers.
Jackson was sued by former representative Raymone Bain, who is seeking 44 million dollars in unpaid earnings from the singer.
According to TMZ.com, King of Pop has claimed he did not have any idea that Bain was trying to take him to court, and is therefore pleading ignorance, reports Contactmusic.
Bain’s papers, on the other hand, allegedly said that her several attempts to serve her former employer with the papers ended up in vain due to the tight security surrounding the star.
Bain, in the lawsuit, apparently claimed: “The magnitude of his spending is legendary as he has earned and dissipated several fortunes.
“Mr. Jackson’s pattern has been to spend to the brink of insolvency and then borrow against his assets to further feed his spending would give any other individual a moment of pause.
“Mr. Jackson exhibited and continues to exhibit impulsive and irresponsible spending habits without regard to the financial limits of his earnings.” (ANI)
