Oh, I know it is just a matter of time before the singing pirate at the restaurant will be singing about Michael Jackson. For those of you not in the US, I am referring to a series of commercials from an agency that provides credit reports. The premise is the guy is working at a fast food place because he didn't know his credit score.
I'm guessing that Michael didn't know what his was or just didn't care. TMZ has found out what it was though and they said it averaged about 563. The highest score is 800. 563 is considered really, really low.
Apparently Michael didn't pay his bills and was always looking for more credit which is why his score was so low. That happens to lots of people. What most people don't have though is $668,215 in the bank which is what he had when he died. Can you imagine having $600K in the bank and not have it be enough for your daily expenses?
Most people could live off that for at least ten years if not a lifetime and Michael couldn't even get through a month with that little. Do you think maybe the $200K he spent at Barneys in one month had something to do with it? I didn't know masks were so damn expensive.
