London (ANI): A Michael Jackson aide may have left the star"s kids facing a 20-million-dollar blank after reportedly failing to pay the singer"s life insurance premiums. Jackson"s closest friend and cosmetic surgeon Dr Steven Hoefflin said the aide may have nicked the money jeopardising the King of Pop"s intention of a bumper payout on his death.
"The family have told me that, utterly unbelievably and horrifyingly, one of his aides did not keep up with payments in the last months of his life. They believe this person was pocketing the money," The Sun quoted Hoefflin as saying. Hoefflin added: "This aide promised to send money - but never did."
The medic further said the Jacksons were fuming after being told that they are entitled to just 2.5million dollars in place of an expected 22.5-million. He said: "The family are furious and they are now seeking a lawsuit against the person believed responsible. It is incredible, and just stands as further proof of the levels of deception and incompetence of the sharks that surrounded Michael."
