Michael Jackson sues former accountants

Singer claims he was 'charged millions of dollars'

Michael Jackson has filed a lawsuit against his former accountants.

The singer is claiming that Bernstein, Fox, Whitman, Goldman & Sloan made unauthorised business deals while charging him millions of dollars.

In a suit filed in Los Angeles, Jackson also alleges negligence and breach of trust against the firm.

The singer is claiming unspecified damages and an audit paid to his former accountants, reports BBC News.

The case comes at a time when the singer is also facing a lawsuit from finance company Prescient Acquisition Group, which claims it is owed $48m (£24.5m).

The firm alleges that it helped Jackson find investors to help pay off a $272.5m (£139.1m) debt, and arrange $537.5m (£274.5m) in financing to secure the The Beatles’ back catalogue.
