A woman who alleges she was married to Michael Jackson has been denied a slice of the late star's estate - her legal challenge has been dismissed by a judge.
Shellie Doreen Smith claimed she and the King of Pop exchanged vows in a low-key ceremony at a New York City hotel in the 1970s.
She asked a judge in December (10) to grant her spousal support.
But her bid for Jackson's cash was denied in court on Thursday (15Apr10), according to TMZ.com.
