London, July 3 (ANI): Late King of Pop Michael Jackson was so desperate to have money that he had applied for loans under 20 different names, it has been revealed.
According to the confidential financial papers, the applications for loan went under the pseudonyms President Mr. Michael Jackson, Michael JJJ Christ-Jehovah, Michael J Jackson ChristJeh, Michael Jackson Jehovah, and Mike J Jackson.
He even tried to alter the spelling of his first name using Micheal and Micheel.
The King of Pop’s credit score was 447.
Moreover, the maximum allowed limit on the last of four credit cards he was permitted, from Capital One, was 450 dollars.
“Michael Jackson’s financial affairs were beyond a mess with county court judgments and taxes owed all over the place. No bank was prepared to bail him out towards the end,” the Sun quoted a financial source as saying.
“He was rejected for loan after loan after loan.
“He was getting desperate,” the source added.
“It is illegal for a person to make any false statement regarding matters of identification in a loan and credit application for the purpose of influencing in any way the action of a financial institution,” said Loan specialist Mike Sikorski, of Florida Realty Network.
“The FBI investigates these crimes where individuals could face up to 30 years in prison, a $1million fine, or both,” he added.
It is said that the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker owed at least 300million dollars when he died, and had been begging banks for money. (ANI)
