Michael Jackson’s Estate Sues His Sibling’s Fiancee For Stealing His Property
Michael Jackson‘s estate recently sued a man who was the fiancee of one of Jackson’s siblings, arguing he stole the musician’s property from his home.
On August 29, 1958, Michael Jackson was born the eighth of ten children in the Jackson family. At that time, they lived in a two-bedroom house on Jackson street. The singer grew up with three sisters named Rebbie, La Toya, and Janet and five brothers named Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Randy.
Jackson’s mother and father were both musicians. In 1964, he and Marlon joined the band Jackson Brothers, formed by their father and included Jackie, Tito, and Jermaine as backup musicians. Following that, Jackson pursued a solo career and rose to prominence as the King of Pop. Sadly, on June 25, 2009, he died from cardiac arrest.
Recently, Jackson’s estate came up with a controversial claim, arguing that the fiancee of one of Jackson’s siblings stole his property in the aftermath of the singer’s death. According to the legal documents, they accused the man named Jeffree Phillips of stealing MJ’s iPhone, driver’s license, and prescription pill bottles. Moreover, Jackson’s estate also claimed Phillips stayed at Jackson’s home after the singer’s passing and stole the private property during that time.
Apart from other items, they also argue Phillips stole MJ’s handwritten notes, a briefcase filled with personal and business papers, video cameras, computers, hard drives, and even Jackson’s pajamas and resuscitator tube. It remains unknown to which sibling of Jackson Jeffree Phillips was engaged. Moreover, the lawsuit was filed on June 24, a day before the 13th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death.
