Michael Jackson fans will have to wait a little longer for official merchandise after a judge delayed his approval of key contracts.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff declined to rule on merchandising deals after the singer's mother raised several issues.
Beckloff wants to appoint an attorney to represent the interests of Jackson's three children, who are substantial beneficiaries to their father's estate, along with Katherine Jackson.
The proposed agreements are between Jackson's estate and concert promoter AEG Live and merchandiser Bravado, which would get worldwide rights to sell Jackson-themed goods and exhibit memorabilia. Beckloff said Monday he will decide on the issue in a week, if not sooner.
