Singer left behind more than $400 million in debt.
Between album sales, movie profits, licensing arrangements and lucrative deals for Cirque du Soleil shows, the estate of late King of Pop Michael Jackson has raked in more than $300 million since the singer's shocking death in June 2009.
According to TMZ, legal documents released on Thursday reveal that executors of MJ's estate have managed to make a major dent in the more than $400 million in debt that Jackson owed at the time of his death.
The first accounting from the executors shows that they have already spent around $159 million paying back various debts, income taxes and other expenses, which include providing support for the pop star's mother, Katherine Jackson, as well as his three young children.
"Although there remain unresolved creditor claims, pending litigation and additional challenging business, tax and legal issues, and the estate is not yet in a condition to be closed, the executors have made substantial progress in reducing the estate's debt," the documents state, according to a Reuters report. Two of Jackson's longtime confidants, attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain, were named as administrators in a will sign by the pop icon.
In addition to paying to make "substantial improvements" to the Jackson family's Havenhurst estate in Encino, California, the executors also spent an undetermined amount of money on "last illness and funeral and memorial service expenses." Those costs included a $900,000 payment to the Forest Lawn Memorial cemetery where Jackson is buried and $35,000 on expenses described as "costume for memorial."
TMZ reported that not only did the famously cash-strapped Jackson have more than $400 million in debt, but his estate also owed more than $40 million to concert promoter AEG tied to the scuttled This Is It Tour, for which MJ was rehearsing when he died unexpectedly. They've also paid $27.2 million in taxes and $4 million in mortgage payments on Jackson's properties.
Despite the solid sales of the Michael album and millions of units of the singer's back catalog being sold, as well as the box office of the "This Is It" movie and DVD sales, the estate is not nearly out of the woods. TMZ noted that the administrators have received more than 65 creditors' claims, some of which are subject to "extremely high" interest rates, and there are several outstanding lawsuits against the estate in several countries.Related Photos

Deadline Hollywood reported last night that CBS' extra thick skid mark named Two and a Half Men will get an extra layer of shit from Ashton Kutcher next season. After Hugh Grant turned down a $25 million offer to replace Charlie Sheen, the producers shook hands with an ass wart who is more annoying than a Demi Moore bathroom bikini photo shoot. The show's creator, Chuck Lorre, is telling people that they came up with a really funny and creative way to introduce Kutchie's character. I'm sure Kutchie will play the long-lost, broken condom baby of Charlie Sheen's character who comes to town to find his father. You know, because we've never seen a storyline like this on television ever. Or Jon Cryer's character will wake up in the 70s from a horrific nightmare where he re-imagined Kelso as Charlie Sheen and Fez as a fat white kid.
CBS wouldn't confirm or deny that they are Summers Eve-ing Two and a Half Men, but Kutchie Tweeted this little wink last night:
"What's the square root of 6.25?
The only way I will approve of the worst casting decision ever is if the new opener features Demi Moore busting out her world famous "geriatric ape giving birth to a seizure baby" moves. The only way.

'He has a major role in the younger generation to this music,' producer/DJ tells MTV News of his collaborator.
By Adam Stewart
It's no secret that 2010 was a pivotal year for electronic dance music here in the States. With deadmau5 and Swedish House Mafia becoming household names, the genre's momentum shows no signs of slowing down. Using a conduit of collaboration, artists such as deadmau5 (a.k.a. Joel Zimmerman) have paired up with various underground acts to further the rapid expansion of the genre.
Perhaps one of the most notable movers and shakers of the year is now-Grammy-Award-nominated producer and DJ Wolfgang Gartner, who recently sat down to chat with MTV News about deadmau5 and dance music's rise to the top.
"He has a major role in the younger generation to this music," Gartner says, "but there have been certain artists that have been instrumental in helping it cross over and reach the mainstream — which I think is a good thing. I think rap artists using dance beats is a great thing. I think it just brings more people towards this music that we all love."
Thanks to several key moments, such as deadmau5 taking the helm as house DJ (well, technically "House Artist") for the 2010 VMAs, dance music has been thrown into the forefront of America's youth, a key demographic for any genre.
"Everybody knows who he is now and he's kind of exposing the masses to dance music. These little five-, six- and seven-year-old kids latch on to this 'mau5head' logo — they get into the music and he's bringing this tiny young generation into this music that probably wouldn't be exposed to it."
Gartner certainly doesn't mind the exposure either. Unless you were living under a rock for the past six months, you probably heard one of this past summer's hottest anthems, "Animal Rights," a collaborative effort brought forth by deadmau5 and Gartner.
"It was interesting because I kind of had a preconceived notion about how he would be to work [with]," said Gartner. "I think our sounds are really similar, so I figured he would work in a similar way to me, but the way that he writes music is actually completely different to me. But he achieves kind of the same sound through a completely different process."
Recorded in deadmau5's favorite Los Angeles studio — that would be rocker Tommy Lee's House — "Animal Rights" is a thumping progressive house anthem that melds Wolfgang's unmistakable harmonics and funk riffs with the driving bass line and wobbly synths that make deadmau5 one of the unique forces in the dance music world.
"[Deadmau5] writes these rich complex chord progressions and he does it by drawing these little bars on a grid, which is just amazing that you can do that and get that result," Gartner goes on to say. "It just proves you don't have to be able to play keyboards to write amazing music."
The two sound pioneers never cease to stop pushing the limits on what they are able to produce. Using drastically difference production approaches, deadmau5 and Gartner had the ability to play off each other's strengths while recording the track.
"I'd say the biggest thing is that I play everything in on a keyboard, like even my drums," says Gartner. "I play everything in live and he draws it in with notes on a mouse, which blew me away because his music is very musical."

With Kurt back at McKinley, we're worried about the fate of 'Klaine.'
By Jim Cantiello
This week's special 90-minute "Born This Way" episode of "Glee" kind of didn't need to be 90 minutes long, and to be honest, we were a little taken aback by the way the show seemed to equate insecurities about being gay with insecurities about wearing glasses. But if that what it takes for them to do a flash-mob scene featuring "Barbra Streisand," we'll take it. Sing along with the lyrics below.
Come on, Gleeks!
Do you believe in plot?
Well, I got something to say about it,
And it goes a little something like this.
[To the tune of "Born This Way"]
Rachel gets smacked, has a broken nose,
Considers having a rhinoplasty.
It sparks a 90-minute episode
Of loving who you're meant to be.
She gets talked out of it when Finn reacts,
And a flash mob says, "Girl, it's a mistake."
That shopping mall scene was so much damn fun.
Hold up a minute, is that Drake?! [Shot of the dude on the escalator that looks a lot like Drake]
Kurt's back at McKinley, yay!
Gives New Directions cache.
"Glee" 's on the right track, babe,
Just don't forget about Klaine.
I won't dare tell you a lie
When Blaine sang Keane, oh, I cried.
"Glee" 's on the right track, babe,
Just don't forget about Klaine.
Oooh, Karovsky's super gay,
Checking out Sam's bootay,
Just don't you forget about Klaine!
Blaine's mouth opens all the way
Holy crap is his jaw OK?
Just don't you forget about Klaine!
"Glee" was a drag
Over prom queens.
No need for this to be 90!
"Glee" don't worry, I'm here to stay,
Even if I dis your way,
I love you, don't forget about Klaine!
NO NEED FOR THIS TO BE 90!
"Unpretty" with Quinn Fabray,
That duet made me hit replay!
I love you, don't forget about Klaine!
"Glee" was a drag
Over prom queens.
Santana was so frickin' mean.
"I'll be your beard to win a crown
And in the process take Quinn down!"
Lauren finds Quinn's secret past:
She used to have a giant ass,
Which according to "Glee" is one in the same
As being flamboyantly gay.
[Jim rants.] Seriously, "Glee"? You're going to equate Mr. Shue's "butt chin" and Artie's poor eyesight, and Finn's inability to dance with homosexuality? And did anyone else find it weird that they sang "Born This Way" but cut out the verse about actually being gay? I know I'm hard on you every week, "Glee," but I can't help it. I guess I was just born that way.Related Videos

Bieber's 'Up' remix partner surprised the crowd in Sydney on Thursday.
By Jocelyn Vena
Rumors abounded in recent days that Justin Bieber would be canceling a scheduled Australian gig because of a back injury. Not only did Bieber not cancel his Thursday (April 28) show in Sydney, he even brought a special guest to the gig.
"I don't cancel ... In route to Sydney!! THE SHOW IS ON!! I don't let my fans down! LEGGO!! #myworldtour," he wrote on Twitter before the gig. "Sydney ... Leggo! #myworldtour"
Hours later, Bieber and his crew revealed to fans who couldn't be at the show that his "Up" remix partner, Chris Brown, had taken the stage with him Down Under. "@JustinBieber and @ChrisBrown just tore the stage down. INSANE. #MyWorldTour," music video director and Bieber insider Alfredo Flores tweeted. Fans then began to weigh in on the pairing, causing Bieber to retweet their kind praise for the performance.
"I feel bad for that stage cause I just heard @justinbieber & @chrisbrown just killed the stage! LOOK AT ME NOW!" AlexisDanielle6 wrote.
Another Belieber, annargh, added, "@JustinBieber that was the most amazing concert I've ever been to! You are so talented! THANK YOU FOR SHARING IT WITH US."
Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, even tweeted a picture of the two performing together, writing, "Look At Them Now! @justinbieber and @chrisbrown 2nite in SYDNEY ... KILL'T IT!"
Bieber obviously had the final say, writing, "And they thought we might cancel tonight. Look at Me Now! I love Australia! #SWAG."
According to a report in The Daily Telegraph, the crowd of nearly 16,000 girls went mad as Bieber played on the latest stop on his My World tour at the Acer Arena. "By the time the countdown clock announced the arrival of the 17-year-old superstar, you would have thought these over-excited, sugar-fueled kids would be ready to relax and enjoy the show," the review noted. "Nope, they blew the decibel reader into the red — reaching 110 decibels between songs — the equivalent of a chainsaw. Ear plugs were a matter of survival."Related Artists

'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never' has outgrossed MJ's 'This Is It' in U.S.
By Gil Kaufman
Michael Jackson may have dubbed himself the King of Pop, but the late icon didn't hold the box-office crown for long. Less than a year after the posthumous MJ documentary "This Is It" became the most successful concert-themed film in U.S. history, Justin Bieber is poised to snatch the mantle.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" has earned $72.2 million in domestic box office so far, passing Jackson's $72.1 million haul. And while Bieber has racked up those impressive numbers in just six weeks, he's got a long way to go before he laps the global receipts for the MJ doc.
"This Is It" has grossed $189.1 million overseas for a global total of $261.2 million. Music films don't typically play well overseas, and THR noted that "Never Say Never" has grossed a more modest $10.8 million overseas so far, with Paramount executives predicting that it could top out around $20 million internationally.
The impressive U.S. numbers were likely goosed by the re-release of the film recently with 40 additional minutes of bonus footage from director Jon M. Chu. Bieber still has a little way to go to climb the list of the top-grossing documentaries of all time. "Never Say Never" is currently stalled out at the #3 position, around $5 million behind "March of the Penguins," according to Box Office Mojo, and well short of the all-time record held by Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11," which has taken in $119.1 million to date.
Bieber set off a classic MJ-style fan frenzy a few weeks ago when he visited Liverpool, England, for his world tour. And just a week later, he posed with his new wax figure at London's Madame Tussauds, checking off another item on the list of milestones to an MJ-like career.Related Videos
