Jackson's lawyers sue over legal fees
EmptyMichael Jackson's former entertainment lawyers have filed a lawsuit claiming the pop star owes them more than $113,000.
The law firm Lavely & Singer of Los Angeles says Jackson agreed in arbitration last year to pay them $180,000 in three installments.
Jackson failed to make the final payment of $113,750 before the July 31 deadline stipulated in the settlement, the firm alleges in a complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
A message left for Jackson's publicist, Raymone Bain, wasn't returned. His lawyer, Christopher Mellott, could not be reached after hours Tuesday.
A judge last month ordered Jackson to pay more than $256,000 in legal fees to another firm that handled some side issues during his 2005 child molestation trial.
Jackson was acquitted of child molestation charges in the case.
