    The Associated Press reports that Michael Jackson's final business manager asked a judge to unseal detailed financial records from the singer's estate, arguing that the sealing of the documents could prevent him and other creditors from being paid.

    Business manager Tohme Tohme filed a claim saying he is entitled to at least $2.3 million from the estate. The filing also claimed he is entitled to a sizable percentage of revenue from the film This Is It.

    Tohme claims he negotiated the contract for the concerts and is entitled to 15 percent of the revenue from the movie, DVD sales and album. Tohme's attorneys argued in the filing that he and other creditors should have access to copies of a report filed last week by estate administrators regarding Jackson's post-death finances.

    A hearing on sealing the records and Tohme's motion is scheduled for October 7.

    Do you think that all the post-death lawsuits against his estate are meritless and disrespectful to the dead?
