 Michael Jackson's estate wins major court case 

Michael Jackson's business partners lose their bid to grab a share of his assets after judge rejects claim the star promised them a stake in his company 

  • Raymone Bain and Quadree el-Amin sued singer Michael Jackson's estate 
  • They claimed the star verbally granted them 1.6 per cent of his company 
  • Bain and el-Amin said they met Jackson in a Tokyo hotel room in June 2006
  • A Los Angeles judge ruled the pair waited too long to lodge their claim  

A Los Angeles judge has rejected a claim by two of Michael Jackson's former business partners that the star had granted them shares in his company during a meeting in a Tokyo hotel room. 
The singer's former publicist Raymone Bain and Quadree el-Amin, who managed the band Boyz II Men, claimed they had a verbal agreement with the Thriller star to hand over a small share in his company. 



Both claimants said the star agreed to hand over 1.6 per cent each as well as the same share for a third person. A fourth member of the group was allegedly promised 10 per cent.

However, a judge ruled they had missed the filing deadline for the action and questioned the accuracy of their claim.


According to TMZ, the pair claimed to have met with Jackson on June 1, 2006 and the star made the offer to give them a share in his company because they had stood by him during his child molestation trial.

However, the judge ruled they could have lodged their claim while Jackson, who died in July 2009, was still alive. 

A judge ruled there was no evidence to show Jackson had granted them a percentage of his company and said they had waited far too long to lodge their claim against the singer's estate

He told TMZ: 'This was a frivolous and outrageous case and these claimants got what they deserved - which was nothing.
