Katherine Jackson has formally filed court documents objecting to the amount of money Debbie Rowe is seeking from Michael Jackson‘s estate.
Rowe is seeking close to $200,000 in attorney’s fees she says were incurred as a result of the custody case involving Michael Jackson’s children after the King Of Pop died last year.
Katherine Jackson’s family law attorney, Diane Goodman states in court docs, “petitioner (Katherine Jackson), contends that the amount of fees requested by Debbie Rowe is not reasonable.”
The filing adds, “Wherefore, Petitioner requests that the petition for Approval for Attorney’s Fees be denied if determined by the court to be unreasonable. Other relief be granted that the court deems just and proper.”
Rowe is represented by Eric George, who also was Oksana Grigorieva‘s attorney in the early stages of the custody battle with Mel Gibson over their infant daughter, Lucia.
A hearing is set for September 8, 2010, to determine how much money George will get for his work with Rowe.
