Michael Jackson Estate Claims

Estate lawsuit file here : http://www.scribd.com/doc/81994850/Michael-Jackson-Tohme-R-Tohme-Suit

Summary

- Tohme gets hired around January 2008.
- Tohme doesn't have any experience in being a manager.
- Tohme took control over all of Michael's personal and professional affairs. They also claim Tohme hired and fired and supervised other people that worked for Michael and therefore no one could have objected his actions.

- May 2008 Tohme and Michael signs a finder's agreement for Tohme introducing Michael to Colony Capital.
- Estate alleges that Tohme didn't tell Michael that he had a pre-existing relationship with Colony Capital.
- According to the finder's fee agreement : Michael was to give Tohme 10% of the loan amount ($2.4M), 10% from the future sale of Neverland and 10% from any future transactions with Colony Capital.
- Estate claims Michael didn't have an independent lawyer and signed the finder's fee agreement without fully understanding and getting independent explanation of it.
- Estate says Michael signed the agreement because he trusted Tohme and believed the finder's fee amount was normal and customary. Estate argues that these amounts are too high.
- Estate says Tohme had conflicting roles - working as a finder and working as the manager of Michael.
- Estate states that the Neverland deal done with Colony Capital was highly unfavorable for Michael. It limited his use and control of Neverland and had unfavorable financial terms.
- Estate says as Tohme had ties and interest in regards to Colony Capital, he didn't look for better and more favorable financing options for Neverland. (Estate says that they believe other better options were available)
- Estate says Michael signed the Neverland / Colony Capital agreement without having counsel independent from Tohme and not subject to Tohme's control and authority.

- July 2008 Tohme gets Michael to sign a "Services agreement".
- Again MJ Estate says Michael signed because he trusted Tohme, didn't have an independent counsel and thought it was customary.
- According to this agreement Tohme was to be paid $35,000 + expenses per month even though Michael earned nothing.
- The agreement also said Tohme was to receive 15% of all gross compensations received by Michael for his services in the entertainment industry including live performances, merchandising, electronic arts, recorded and live telecasts, motion pictures, animation projects.

- August 2008 Tohme gets Michael to sign two Power of Attorney (POA) which gave extraordinary powers to Tohme.
- Also Tohme gets Michael to sign an Indemnity Agreement which was again too broad.
- Again the same claims of Michael didn't have an independent counsel, trusted Tohme, signed them without fully understanding them.
- Estate says Tohme cause harm with his POA when in November 2008 he gifted Michael's art to Brett Livingstone-strong. Estate says the POA's don't give Tohme the power to gift anything and sign over Michael's copyrights.

-Tohme negotiated TII concert deal with AEG.
- Tohme was supposed to get $100,000 a month as a producer fee from TII concerts. AEG would have pay this amount but then would get it back from Michael.
- Again the same claims about Michael signing this agreement.

- Estate alleges that Tohme took possession and control of millions of dollars, tangible personal property and other property of Michael.
- Estate says Tohme merged his own funds with Michael's and used Michael's money for his expenses, travel, entertainment and purchase other property for himself.
- Estate says Tohme has refused to provide accounting for the money he handled.
- Estate says they believe Tohme is in possession of property belonging to the Estate (and alleges Tohme disposed some of them) and asks for twice the value of such items.


- Estate says Tohme was fired March 2009 and Michael revoked his POA's in April 2009.
- Tohme didn't return Michael's property.

- After Michael's death Tohme requested significant funds from MJ Estate.
- Tohme refused to return the property in his possession to MJ Estate.
- Estate says Tohme also didn't return books and records.

Claims

1. Accounting : Estate is asking for account of all actions and transactions done by Tohme and return of any money and property of Michael.

2. Recovery of Property: Estate is asking for all the property and cash Tohme has. Estate also claims that when Michael died he had a claim to property that the title or possession is held by Tohme.

3. Wrongful taking: Estate wants twice the value of the property that Tohme took, concealed and disposed of.

4. Breach of fiduciary duty: Tohme took advantage of Michael's trust (for the things listed above) and only considered his self interest. Estate doesn't know the exact amount of damages but they're asking for currently undetermined damages from Tohme.

5. Rescission: Due to the breach of duty Estate is asking for rescission - in other words the cancellation - of the 3 agreements (finder's fee, service and indemnity) between Michael and Tohme.

6. Rescission: Estate is asking for the rescission / cancellation of the 3 agreements between Michael and Tohme due several facts such as Michael didn't have independent counsel and/or didn't fully understand it and trusted Tohme. Estate says Michael could not known that these agreements weren't customary and highly unfavorable for him. So Estate wants to rescind / cancel all these agreements.

7. Rescission due to undue influence: Estate also claims that Tohme misused Michael's confidence in him to obtain advantage over Michael and took advantage of Michael's financial distress.

8. Relief: Estate wants the court to rule that Tohme is not entitled to any commission for the time after he was fired and certainly not after Michael's death, void the agreements and rule that Tohme is not entitled any further compensation and order the return of Michael's property and money that's in Tohme's possession. Estate is also asking for damages (not yet determined) and legal costs.

MICHAEL JACKSON ESTATE Claims MJ's Manager Royally Screwed Him

Michael Jackson's Estate is going after Tohme Tohme, MJ's former manager, claiming he fleeced the singer out of millions of dollars.

TMZ has obtained legal docs filed by the Estate, claiming Tohme got Michael to sign agreements that earned him a fortune for doing nothing.

According to the papers, Estate attorney Howard Weitzman claims Tohme got MJ to agree to pay him $35,000 a month plus expenses as a flat fee -- regardless of what work Tohme performed. On top of that, Tohme inked a deal that gave him 15% of any money Michael made.

And there's more ...Tohme introduced Michael to a lender that refinanced Neverland. In return, Tohme got Jackson to pay him $2.4 million -- just for the introduction. And Tohme got MJ to promise him 10% of any profits if the Ranch was sold.

Tohme also got MJ to agree to pay him $100,000 a month for the "This Is It" tour.

Estate lawyers are anticipating a lawsuit by Tohme against the estate for the money he claims he's owed, and the Estate wants to shut him down before a suit is filed.

The Estate is also asking for damages.

BTW, Michael fired Tohme 3 months before he died.

Michael Jackson Executors (Finally) Sue Singer's Final Manager


Michael Jackson‘s estate has finally filed a lawsuit against Tohme Tohme, who used to call himself “Doctor.” Tohme was Michael Jackson’s penultimate manager–meaning he was replaced just before Jackson’s death by Jackson’s longtime manager and friend, Frank DiLeo. But Tohme, the estate says in a complaint filed by attorney Howard Weitzman, ran amok during his short term between January 2008 and March 2009. It was Tohme, working for Thomas Barrack‘s Colony Capital, who pulled off the sale of Neverland to Colony. But according to the complaint, Jackson never understood that Tohme was also going to receive a finder’s fee for doing work for his own employer. Jackson had no lawyer representing him in his many signed agreements with Tohme, and so didn’t understand that when Colony came up with $24 million to bail out Neverland, Tohme would get $2.4 million.

Tohme, the complaint further reads, got Jackson to sign an agreement paying him $35,000 a month. He was also to receive 15% of all gross compensation Jackson received for anything he did in the entertainment field. Jackson signed not one but two Power of Attorney documents giving Tohme “extraordinary” powers. He also gave himself a $100,000 per month producers fee for the run of Jackson’s London concert dates–from July 2009 through at least March 2010. All of this Jackson signed without a lawyer, and despite numerous stories (many written by yours truly) about Tohme’s many assertions about his credentials being false.

It was during Tohme’s regime, for example, that the contents of Neverland were emptied and consigned to an auction house in Beverly Hills. The auction didn’t proceed when Jackson finally got a grip, and a lawyer, stopped the auction. Tohme then took back the contents and warehoused them. When Jackson died, the estate had to negotiate with him to get back the property. Out of luck was Julien’s Auction House, which published a now collectible catalog of everything that had been in Neverland.

“Tohme took possession and control of money and property that belonged to Jackson.Tomhe did not return to Jackson and refuses to deliver to the executors all of the property and cash belonging to Jackson that Tohme took possession and control of.”

On a side note, Tohme used to claim he was a doctor from Lebanon. But he could never prove to me that he was a doctor and when I questioned him about it in 2008, he told me wasn’t practicing. He did say he was Ambassador at Large to Senegal, but their Embassies denied it.

Re: MJ Estate sues Tohme Tohme

I doubt the estate would persue this unless they had a legitimate chance of winning. I'm glad the estate is going after him, I just hope this doesnt bring about any more negative revelations about the state of Michael's finances.

Jackson Estate Lawsuit: to Reclaim $900 Mil Art Collection

Part of the lawsuit filed today by Michael Jackson’s executors has to do with a $900 million art collection. It’s hard to believe, considering Jackson’s perilous fortunes when he was alive, that such a collection existed. But last summer LA Weekly visited a Santa Monica airport hangar where Jackson was stowing his personal art collection–art he had created and a few other tchotckes. At one time, Star Magazine (ahem) got an appraisal of $900 million for all this stuff. More importantly, the estate says that in 2008, Tohme Tohme, Jackson’s then manager, simply gave the whole collection to a Los Angeles artist named Brett Livingston Strong. Strong — and Jackson– have called this man a “modern day Michelangelo.” Anyway, the estate claims in its suit againt Tohme that he improperly used Powers of Attorney to give Strong copyrights that Michael owned. The art remains in the hangar. A longer piece about this can be read at http://www.artinfo.com/news/story/3...out-the-900-million-michael-jackson-art-feud/

Re: MJ Estate sues Tohme Tohme

Thome was a crook from the get go.. Don't forget Thome was introduced to Mike by Jermaine Jackson. How much did Jermaine get out of the deal? I can't believe Mike signed all of those docs without an attorney. Mike needed help in the worse way and folks just stood by and watched him get sucked in and taken advantage of.

Jackson estate sues former manager, claiming financial abuses in last year of singer’s life

By Associated Press, Updated: Friday, February 17, 4:41 PM

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s estate sued the singer’s former manager on Friday, claiming he lined his own pockets by persuading the pop superstar to sign unconscionable contracts in the final year of his life.

The lawsuit against Tohme R. Tohme came after more than a year of wrangling between Jackson’s estate and the former adviser who has claimed he is owed 15 percent of the more than $310 million collected by the estate since the singer’s death.


The lawsuit seeks the return of Jackson’s property and financial records along with damages and a ruling that Tohme is not entitled to any money from the estate.

The contracts involved a refinancing of Jackson’s debt related to Neverland Ranch and a producer’s fee that Tohme negotiated for himself for Jackson’s series of planned comeback concerts in London.

“This lawsuit is necessary to finally put a stop to abuse of fiduciary obligations owed to Jackson and seeks to unwind the self-serving and unconscionable agreements (Tohme) encouraged Jackson to enter into” and to compensate the estate for failing to return Jackson’s property, the complaint states.

Tohme’s attorney Paul Malingagio did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment Friday.

Tohme served as Jackson’s manager from January 2008 until March 2009.

Estate attorney Howard Weitzman wrote in a statement that he expects Jackson’s former manager to file his own lawsuit to try to gain money from the estate.

“We believe the facts will show that Mr. Tohme’s claims are meritless and that Mr. Tohme engaged in wrongdoing with respect to Michael Jackson starting early in their relationship,” Weitzman wrote.

The lawsuit states that Tohme forced Jackson to pay him a finder’s fee for introducing the singer to a group that saved Neverland Ranch from foreclosure. That deal earned Tohme more than $2.4 million and was just one of several deals he was involved in that the estate claims improperly benefited the adviser.

Tohme also negotiated a producer’s fee of $100,000 a month for the “This Is It” shows planned in London, although Jackson died before the concert series began.

The legal action also alleges that Tohme improperly signed away the rights to artwork created by Jackson.

Tohme told The Associated Press in July 2009 that he had turned over more than $5 million to Jackson’s estate that the singer had stockpiled to purchase a “dream home” in Las Vegas.

In September 2010, Tohme sought more than $2.3 million from the estate and claimed he was owed 15 percent of revenue from the film “This Is It,” which used footage from Jackson’s final rehearsals.

Tohme was credited as Jackson’s personal adviser in the film.

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s estate is suing the singer’s former manager, claiming he mismanaged finances and made the pop superstar sign unconscionable contracts in the year before his death.

The lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles accuses Tohme R. Tohme of siphoning money for his own benefit from agreements for Jackson’s final concerts and the re-financing of debt on Neverland Ranch.

The suit also claims Tohme has refused to return Jackson’s property and financial records.


Tohme’s attorney Paul Malingagio did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

Tohme has battled for access to estate financial records so he can estimate how much he is owed.

Estate attorney Howard Weitzman wrote in a statement that he expects Tohme to file a lawsuit against the estate, but that his claims are meritless.

Re: MJ Estate sues Tohme Tohme

Finally! Thome has always been my nr1 concern asides Murray as to why Michaels life was full of chaos in the last months of his life.

So he was gonna get 15% of all what MJ earned!! A normal manager fee is between 5-10%. Now we understand why he pushed the 50 shows down MJs throat. The more shows MJ did the more money for Thome.... At first i belived mj wanted to do 50 shows but now i guess thome just gave him the contract to sign and MJ dident read it(as usual) and so he was trapped.

Michael speaking about thome:

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusiv...pes-reveal-michael-jackson’s-fear-his-advisor

Recordings from Michael Jackson to his spiritual adviser June Gatlin indicate the Thriller singer was fearful of Dr. Tohme R. Tohme, the advisor he had appointed to preside over his personal affairs last year.

"He just has ways about him ... the things he's done," Jackson tells Gatlin on the tapes. "There's a divide between my representatives and I ... I don't talk to my lawyer or my accountant -- he talks to them, and I talk to him."

On the tape, Jackson revealed his concerns over Tohme's control over his finances.

"I know it’s not good -- I don't know what's in my account," he said.

Tohme, according to the Today Show, met Jackson through the late King of Pop's brother, Jermaine, when he was battling to keep his Neverland estate last year. He is not a licensed physical in the U.S.

Tohme said in a Today Show appearance two weeks after Jackson’s death that he was in control of the singer’s day-to-day life. According to the show, Tohme has been fingered in connection with many illicit real estate deals.

Jackson died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest June 25 in Los Angeles; results of an autopsy conducted on the pop icon are being withheld by the Los Angeles Coroner's Office until the police investigation has been completed.

I need to see the complaint first. No media posted it yet and it's not available on court's website. But

- remember Tohme is claiming the's owed money. so yeah this seems an action to stop that at least $2.4 M claim.
- also MJ art is an element in Mann lawsuit and I think it was reported that Livingstone-Strong has plans to sell them. It seems to be to stop that as well.
