Jackson-AEG Suit_Edge.jpg

FILE - In this Dec. 8, 1996 file photo, Michael Jackson belts out a song during the first concert of his 2-days concert tour in Manila, dubbed as HIStory World tour. Accounting expert Arthur Erk told a jury on Monday, July 15, 2013, that Jackson would have likely earned at least $1.1 billion if he completed a worldwide tour and crafted a Las Vegas show before dying. Erk's testimony in a lawsuit filed by the singer's mother, Katherine Jackson, against concert promoter AEG Live LLC, includes estimates that Jackson would have spent $134 million before retiring from showbiz at age 65.
