Michael Jackson's former manager wants to file a creditor's claim against the late star's estate - four months after a deadline was set for all submissions.
Richard Arons, who is said to have worked with the King of Pop for 40 years, has asked a judge to accept his claim four months after the due date for demands to shares of Jackson's fortune.
Arons blames Jackson's estate bosses for failing to tell him he needed to file a claim in order to continue receiving royalty cheques, according to legal documents submitted on Friday (14May10) in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
A long list of creditors are vying for a stake in Jackson's assets - his former skin doctor Arnold Klein, choreographer LaVelle Smith Jr. and even his sister, Janet, and brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy are reportedly listed as potential creditors.
