A Los Angeles councilwoman says the estate of Michael Jackson and the entertainment company AEG have agreed to contribute $1.3 million to help the city pay for costs related to the pop star's memorial service last year at Staples Center.
Councilwoman Jan Perry, who represents much of downtown, announced the agreement Friday and says she is pleased the matter has been resolved.
Critics took aim at the city for spending $3.2 million to support the July 7 memorial service at AEG's Nokia Theater and Staples Center.
Jackson died of an overdose of sedatives last year. His star-studded memorial service at Staples Center brought in thousands of people to the city.
