Raymone Bain, Michael Jackson’s former publicist, is still fighting to get a big paycheck from Jackson’s estate.
However, yesterday TMZ.com reported that the Jackson estate rejected Bain’s $44 million creditor’s claims for back wages and profit sharing.
Not so fast, said Bain’s lawyers. In an email today, Willie E. Gary of Gary, Williams, Finney, Lewis, Watson & Sperando, P.L. said, “Reports that Ms. Bain has been defeated in her lawsuit against the Estate are erroneous. Our lawsuit is alive and well.”
Bain originally sued Jackson in May 2009. Read the full email after the jump.
