Jeffrey Phillips sued on behalf of Michael Jackson's estate for stealing pop icon's pajamas

Michael Jackson's estate filed a lawsuit against film producer Jeffre Phillips, accusing him of stealing a wide assortment of personal items from the "Thriller" singer in the days immediately following his death. 

This comes just before the 13th anniversary of the pop icon's passing. Jackson died on June 25, 2013, after suffering cardiac arrest that was said to be caused by a cocktail of drugs given to him by his doctor 

Jeffre was engaged to be married to one of Michael's siblings at the time of the alleged robbery, according to legal documents 

obtained by TMZ, but the court filing did not specify which sibling. However, it's been reported Michael's sister La Toya Jackson married Jeffre in 2013. 

The documents claimed he was staying at Michael Carolwood House when he allegedly stole Michael's iPhone, his driver's license, 

prescription pill bottles, handwritten notes and a pair of pajamas that the megastar had been wearing in the hours leading up to his 

death. The articles of clothing had been taken off of the singer by the medical team attempting to save Michael's life. 

The lawsuit also alleged Jeffre stole a briefcase and paperwork, video cameras, computers and hard drives from the King of Pop.
