Michael Jackson's financial woes just keep getting worse. He has now been ordered to pay his ex-wife Debbie Rowe $60K in legal fees.
Jackson has until September 28 to pay the costs to Rowe, who is fighting for custody of their two children, Prince Michael and Paris.
Los Angeles Superior Judge Robert Schnider rejected Rowe's original request for $195K, on the grounds that she had been granted an $8M divorce settlement.
In 2001 Rowe waived all access rights to Prince Michael, and Paris. However, in 2004, she changed her mind and began fighting for visitation and custody rights.
Lawyers for Jackson and Rowe will meet this week to settle the case.
It's not all bad for Jackson; after all, if he were Paul McCartney he would now be facing a claim of over £100M.
