Lawyers say the King Of Pop gave out nearly $200 million to close up as many as 20 victims with sexually assault charges before his death in 2009; with the Jordan Chandler lawsuit alone allegedly costing him more than $40 million, the New York Post reports.

Now two men who claim they were molested as young boys by Michael Jackson are expected to find out on Tuesday, April 7 if they will be allowed to sue for a slice of the late King Of Pop's $1.5 billion estate.

Australian choreographer Wade Robson, once the singer's staunchest defender, now claims Jackson was a predator who repeatedly sexually abused him as a child.

Robson joins another of Jackson's alleged child victims, James Safechuck, who says he met Jackson in 1987 when he was eight and was molested a year later.

Safechuck alleges the singer gave him a marriage certificate and a wedding band as keepsakes and confirmation of their 'undying love'

A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, Mitchell Beckloff has scheduled a hearing for both men on Tuesday that could decide if their respective claims proceed.

Meanwhile, Jackson's former maid, Blanca Francia, is expected to testify that she walked in on the singer showering with and groping the then nine-year-old Robson and that she saw Jackson and Robson semi-nude in bed together, the Post reports.
