Michael Jackson‘s former right-hand woman just tasted a $44,000,000 defeat — after MJ’s estate rejected 2 creditors’ claims she filed earlier this year.

Raymone Bain — Jackson’s longtime publicist/manager/friend — had filed the docs claiming MJ owed her more than $44 mil in back wages and profit sharing.

But today, MJ’s estate finally got back to Bain — with a big, fat, rejection stamp.

Bain is the latest in a series of creditors’ claims to be denied by the estate — with more denials expected to be on the way shortly.
