Melbourne, March 20 (ANI): Michael Jackson’s estate and the lawyer for his former wife Debbie Rowe have landed in a dispute over the attorney’s legal bill.

Rowe’s lawyer Eric George has asked a court to order the estate to pay more than 190,000 dollars for his legal services in connection with the appointment of a guardian for the late star’s three kids.

George, in his legal papers, alleged estate lawyer Howard Weitzman promised to “reimburse [George's firm] on Ms. Rowe’s behalf”, The Daily Telegraph reported.

But Weitzman told TMZ, “I had discussions with Mr. George about his request that the estate pay his fees on behalf of Debbie Rowe, but no agreement was ever reached.” (ANI)
