Three of Michael Jackson's former bodyguards said on Good Morning America Wednesday that the late King of Pop was dealing with major money problems, and has the clip for you.

According to the guards, Bill Whitfield, Mike Garcia and Javon "BJ" Beard, Jackson owed and was paying out millions to law firms. Whitfield said Jackson spent marathon hours in his attorney's office some days, once getting so cranky after one of the visits, he threw a cell phone out the car window.

The guards said Jackson often went months without paying them, at times.

"Ten million, $20 million -- I'm seeing all these zeroes, and I'm like, 'Where's my moolah?" Whitfield said.

"It was going out faster than it was coming in," Garcia added.

Whitfield said he remembered at least four occasions on which Jackson's credit cards were declined.
