Michael Jackson Had Bad Credit

It was apparently the least of his problems, but the late King of Pop had less than stellar credit, says TMZ.

TMZ says:

TMZ has learned that in 2007, Jacko’s average credit score was 563.67 (Equifax 592, Transunion: 524, Experian: 575) which most experts consider very low. (According to creditreport.com, the average credit rating for people in California is 672.)

He apparently had some delinquent accounts and Barney’s supposedly shut down his credit line after he charged more than $224,000 in on a single billing cycle.
