London, Oct 7: Michael Jackson’s 83-year-old mother, Katherine, has been asked to pay up 4 million pounds in bills after she lost the case in her son’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live.
A source close to the family told the Daily Star that Katherine was “shell-shocked” when a jury threw out her 1 billion-dollar compensation claim over Michael’s 2009 death, the Daily Star reported.
The insider asserted that Katherine is barely eating and sits staring silently for hours like she’s in some kind of trance, and the entire family is very concerned.
The insider asserted that Katherine can pay some of the debt, which includes 3.3 million pounds in legal fees and 800,000 pounds for expert witnesses, but she is a long way short of being able to settle in full.
The mum-of-ten currently gets 53,686 pounds per month from the trustees of her son’s estate to care for his three children – Prince, Paris and Blanket. (ANI)
