Michael Jackson's mother has been granted a $6 million (£3.75 million) loan to help settle a long-running legal battle over a string of scrapped King of Pop concerts in South Korea.
Attorneys for the Segye Times sued the late singer, his mother Katherine, father Joe and brother Jermaine in 1990 over claims the family members failed to honour a deal to stage a series of gigs in the Far East.
Publishers allegedly paid the Jacksons $5.5 million (£3.44 million) for the shows and took the matter to trial in February 1992. The Thriller hitmaker settled the claims against him outside of court that same year, but a court ruling was entered against his family members in 1994, requesting the remaining $4 million (£2.5 million).
The case returned to court in August, 2009 - two months after the King of Pop's death - when Segye Times' lawyers demanded the Jackson family settle the outstanding amount with interest.
Katherine Jackson reached an agreement with newspaper editors to put the dispute to rest with a payment of $6 million (£3.75 million), and now the family matriarch has been given a financial boost from executors from the Jackson estate to help pay off the debt, according to Tmz.com.
Katherine has reportedly been given the cash with one key stipulation - she must repay the full amount to the estate within a year.
