Michael Jackson - Katherine Jackson to pay $800,000 court costs

Michael Jackson's mother has been ordered to pay $800,000 to his promoter AEG Live for a failed lawsuit.

A jury ruled in October last year that the company were not to blame for the death of Katherine Jackson's son in 2009 and they were not wrong for hiring disgraced physician, Conrad Murray, to care for the 'Thriller' hitmaker before his 'This Is It' comeback concert series in London.

And now a judge has ruled she must pay the company compensation after they fought for costs and damages.

AEG Live had sought $1.2 million to cover costs, but Katherine's lawyers claimed it was not justified.

In their documents to the court, the company had included an itemised list of costs from the five-month trial, including $540,000 for models and blow-up court exhibits, $118,000 for unnecessary depositions, $53,000 for process servers, $20,000 for 1,000 pages of jury instructions and other documents, and $9 parking fees which they wanted Katherine - who cares for Michael's children, Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11 - to cover.

Michael died of acute Propofol intoxication on June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest and The Los Angeles County Coroner ruled his death a homicide.

His personal physician Conrad Murray was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

He was sentenced to four years in jail for the crime, but was released last October after serving just two years behind bars.
