Michael Jackson’s estate has been sued for 212,000 dollars by the late singer’s hairstylist over unpaid wages.

Lynda Parrish says she was employed by the Thriller hitmaker at a cost of 1,500 dollars a day, while she charged 1,000 dollars to cut the hair of people in his entourage.

According to TMZ.com, she invoiced Jackson for a further 1,000 dollars to cover the cost of business lost when she had to fly outside of California to style the singer's hair, reports Contactmusic.

Another lawsuit filed by Erle Bonner in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleges Jackson of stealing a man's cure for herpes.

Bonner said Jackson had samples of his formula for "herpes cure, acne cures and arthritis cures", which he allegedly passed on to Jackson's co-defendant Kevin Trudeau to sell.

He claims he was also threatened by "someone from the Jackson family".

The legal papers say Jackson relative "came by my house and shot a... pistol in the air. They turned around in a neighbour's driveway and drove away."
