MICHAEL JACKSON's former entertainment lawyers filed a lawsuit TUESDAY claiming the singer 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 in LOS ANGELES Superior Court.
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.
