Wow. This is one of those situations where pretty much everybody involved kind of sucks.
Debbie Rowe is seeking $200,000 in attorney’s fees to be paid by Michael Jackson’s estate for the child custody case that occurred after his death.
Admittedly, Katherine Jackson has made disgusting amounts of money off of Michael’s death, so she really COULD pay this amount, but we’re just sickened by both parties involved.
Here’s what Katherine’s attorney, Diane Goodman, stated about the case in court documents:
"…petitioner (Katherine Jackson), contends that the amount of fees requested by Debbie Rowe is not reasonable. Wherefore, Petitioner requests that the petition for Approval for Attorney's Fees be denied if determined by the court to be unreasonable. Other relief be granted that the court deems just and proper."
Going up against Goodman will be Rowe’s attorney, Eric George, who represented Oksana Grigorieva during the beginning stages of her custody battle with MELtdown.
The hearing between these two wonderful individuals is scheduled for September 8.
