Raymone Bain Attends Jackson Funeral
Two months ago Raymone Bain sued Michael Jackson for $44.million, fully expecting a drawn-out legal battle over unpaid earnings. She had no contact with Jackson after filing the lawsuit -- and wasn't sure how his family would react if she attended his memorial service. "I had concerns, because you never know," she told us yesterday. "Michael's passing was just so shocking to all of us."
She had nothing to worry about. The D.C.-based PR exec represented the pop legend for years and had always maintained good relations with his parents and siblings. So Michael's younger brother, Randy, invited her to come to L.A., and Bain sat with the family during the service. "It was extremely emotional," she said. "It hit home that he's passed. I think I didn't believe it."
When news broke that Jackson had been rushed to the hospital, Bain first dismissed it as rumor. Since his death, she said, she's wanted to "throw a brick at the television" amid all the "insiders" emerging with allegations of drug use and attempted interventions (untrue, she claims).
Bain declined to discuss the future of her court case, which remains open. Any regrets? "I regret having to file the lawsuit, period. It was a business decision. But it had nothing to do with my love and respect for him. You can't erase seven years."
