LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s final business manager is seeking detailed financial records from the singer’s estate, arguing that the sealing of the documents could prevent him and other creditors from being paid.
Business manager Tohme Tohme has claimed he is entitled to at least $2.3 million from the estate.
In a court filing Tuesday, Tohme’s attorneys argue he and other creditors should have access to unredacted copies of a report filed last week by estate administrators on Jackson’s post-death finances.
Tohme’s motion seeks access to revenue, expense and profit information that is not publicly available.
Jackson estate attorney Howard Weitzman had not seen the motion and says he could not immediately comment.
