    Oh boy. The estate of the late Michael Jackson has been slapped with a $1 billion lawsuit (handwritten, mind you!) from a woman who says she inspired the King of Pop's biggest hits. Said inspiration -Kimberly Griggs- filed paperwork in San Diego, California claiming she had an intimate relationship with Jackson in 1979. She claims the romance was detailed in albums including Thriller, Bad and Dangerous, saying that the singer exposed her secrets and had promised her rights to the songs.

    Sounds like the rantings of a loon. And like the statute of limitations is likely way, way up.
