Jacko Facing New Lawsuit

July 12, 2005 04:09:20 GMT

Has just been acquitted of child molestation, the King of Pop is now facing another legal suit, this time over The Beatles library finances. Based on the lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, a financial company specializing in asset acquisition named Prescient Acquisition Group Inc. claimed Michael Jackson owed $48 million in fees for rescuing his stake in the publishing rights to songs by The Beatles.

It is mentioned that Jacko has enlisted it in November 2004 to provide financial advice and to secure refinancing of a $272 million debt to Bank of America. Thus, on behalf of Jacko and his company MJ Publishing Trust, Prescient secured $537 million in financing from Fortress Investment Group LLC, an amount enough to pay the singer's debt and exercise an option to buy the remaining 50 percent of the Beatles library he not yet own.
