Roger Freidman about the MJ-Sony Deal


To this financier, Michael Jackson is an undervalued asset

Others have tried to revive the onetime pop star’s performing career. Tom Barrack is convinced he’s the ‘caretaker’ to do it.

Tom Barrack is third person on pic

May 31, 2009|Chris Lee and Harriet Ryan

Tom Barrack, a Westside financier who made billions buying and selling distressed properties, flew to Las Vegas in March 2008 to check out a troubled asset. But his target was not a struggling hotel chain or failed bank.

It was Michael Jackson. The world’s bestselling male pop artist was hunkered down with his three children in a dumpy housing compound in an older section of town. At 49, he was awash in nearly $400 million of debt and so frail that he greeted visitors in a wheelchair. The rich international friends who offered him refuge after his 2005 acquittal on molestation charges had fallen away. His Santa Barbara ranch, Neverland, was about to be sold at public auction.


In Jackson, Barrack saw the sort of undervalued asset his private equity firm, Colony Capital, had succeeded with in the past. He wrote a check to save the ranch and placed a call to a friend, conservative business magnate Philip Anschutz, whose holdings include the concert production firm AEG Live.

Fifteen months later, Jackson is living in a Bel-Air mansion and rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London’s O2 Arena. The intervention of two billionaires with more experience in the boardroom than the recording studio seems on course to accomplish what a parade of others over the last dozen years could not: getting Jackson back onstage.

His backers envision the London shows as an audition for a career rebirth that could ultimately encompass a three-year world tour, a new album, movies, a Graceland-like museum, musical revues in Las Vegas and Macau, even a “Thriller” casino.

“You are talking about a guy who could make $500 million a year if he puts his mind to it,” Barrack said recently. “There are very few individual artists who are multibillion-dollar businesses. And he is one.”

Others have tried to resurrect Jackson’s career but failed, associates say, because of managerial chaos, backbiting within his inner circle and the singer’s legendary flakiness.

Even as Jackson’s benefactors assemble an all-star team — “High School Musical’s” Kenny Ortega is directing the London concerts — there are hints of discord. Last week, two men identified themselves as the singer’s manager; a month before, a respected accountant who had been handling Jackson’s books was abruptly fired in a phone call from an assistant.

But Jackson’s backers downplay the problems. “He is very focused. He is not going to let anybody down. Not himself. Not his fans. Not his family,” said Frank DiLeo, his current manager and a friend of three decades.

Jackson needs a comeback to reverse the damage done by years of excessive spending and little work. He has not toured since 1997 or released a new album since 2001, but he has continued to live like a megastar.

To finance his opulent lifestyle, he borrowed heavily against his three main assets: his ranch, his music catalog and a second catalog that includes the music of the Beatles that he co-owns with Sony Corp. By the time of his 2005 criminal trial, he was nearly $300 million in debt and, according to testimony, spending $30 million more annually than he was taking in.

Compounding his money difficulties are a revolving door of litigious advisors and hangers-on. Jackson has run through 11 managers since 1990, according to DiLeo.

At least 19 people — financial advisors, managers, lawyers, a pornography producer and even a Bahraini sheik — have taken Jackson to court, accusing him of failing to pay bills or backing out of deals. He settled many of the suits. Currently, he is facing civil claims by a former publicist, a concert promoter and the writer-director of his “Thriller” video, John Landis.

John Branca, an entertainment lawyer who represented Jackson for more than 20 years, blamed the singer’s financial troubles partly on his past habit of surrounding himself with “yes men.” Branca advised Jackson to buy half of the Beatles’ catalog in 1985 for $47.5 million. The catalog is now estimated to be worth billions, and the purchase is considered his smartest business decision.

“The paradox is that Michael is one of the brightest and most talented people I’ve ever known. At the same time, he has made some of the worst choices in advisors in the history of music,” said Branca, who represents Santana, Nickelback and Aerosmith, among others. He said he split with the singer because Jackson invited into his inner circle “people who really didn’t have his best interests at heart.”

The singer’s financial predicament reached a crisis point in March 2008 when he defaulted on a $24.5-million loan and Neverland went into foreclosure. Jackson’s brother Jermaine enlisted the help of Dr. Tohme Tohme, an orthopedic surgeon-turned-businessman who had previously worked with Colony Capital.

Tohme reached out to Barrack, who said he was initially reluctant to get involved because Jackson had already sought advice from Barrack’s friend and fellow billionaire Ron Burkle.

“I said, ‘My god, if Ron can’t figure it out, I can’t figure it out,’ ” Barrack said.

“I sat down with him and said, ‘Look . . . we can buy the note and restructure your financial empire,’ ” Barrack said. But, he told him, “what you need is a new caretaker. A new podium. A new engine.”

Tohme, who acted as Jackson’s manager until recently, recalled the urgency of the situation. “If he didn’t move fast, he would have lost the ranch,” Tohme said. “That would have been humiliating for Michael.”

Jackson and Barrack reached an agreement within seven days. Colony paid $22.5 million and Neverland averted foreclosure.

Jackson has not spoken publicly since a March news conference and his representatives declined to make him available for an interview.

Barrack said his position outside the music industry seemed to endear him to Jackson. “He looks at me like ‘the suit.’ I have credibility because I don’t live in that world. I’m not interested in hanging around him. I’m not interested in girls. I’m not interested in boys. I’m not interested in drugs,” Barrack said.

After buying Neverland, Barrack called his friend Anschutz. Barrack said the prospect of helping Jackson, given his recent criminal case, gave Anschutz, a devout Christian, pause. (Anschutz declined to be interviewed.)

Barrack had spent significant time with Jackson and praised him as a “genius” and devoted father. Ultimately, Anschutz agreed to put Jackson in touch with Randy Phillips, the chief executive of his concert subsidiary.

As the head of AEG Live, Phillips oversees a division that grossed more than $1 billion last year and has negotiated such lucrative bookings as Celine Dion’s four-year, $400-million run in Las Vegas and Prince’s 21 sold-out dates at the O2 Arena in 2007.

Phillips had his eye on Jackson for some time. In 2007, Phillips had approached the singer with a deal for a comeback, but Jackson, who was working with different advisors, turned him down. “He wasn’t ready,” Phillips recalled.

This time, however, Jackson was receptive. He needed the money, and he has a second, more personal reason: His children — sons Prince Michael, 7, and Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., 12, and daughter Paris Michael Katherine, 11 — have never seen him perform live.

“They are old enough to appreciate and understand what I do, and I am still young enough to do it,” Phillips quoted Jackson as saying.

Jackson stands to earn $50 million for the O2 shows, “This Is It” — $1 million per performance, not including revenue from merchandise sales and broadcast rights. Jackson is considering options including pay-per-view and a feature film. But the real money would kick in after his final curtain call in London.

Jacqui’s Comments:

This fits in with what the book I read said actually, and shows that Michael did have money troubles, apparently Tohme Tohme used to work for Colony Capital, the company that this Barrack guys owns.  what about this scenario, So Tohme Tohme decides the way in which Michael can raise some money is to have an auction of his stuff, which has been sat at Neverland since 2005, because Michael didn’t want to go back there, it now held bad memories for  him and he’d said he’d never live there again.  He arranges for the auction with Julian’s Auction House, but then this Barrack guy decides to help Michael, so he doesn’t need to go through with the auction now and calls it off.  If he makes enough from the concerts, he can pay off the note for Neverland and take ownership of it again – problem solved.


Michael Jackson estate fight becomes public family dispute

Thanks Jacqui

By CNN – CNN News
In the News | Wed, 11 Nov 2009

Michael Jackson’s mother dropped her challenge of the two men named as executors in her son’s will, but her sudden reversal caught her husband by surprise Tuesday and led to a bitter fight in court.

In the end, the judge approved John Branca and John McClain as executors to run the pop star’s estate and he ruled that Michael Jackson’s father had no right to challenge the decision.

Joe Jackson, however, will have his day in court in December to argue that he should get a monthly allowance from his son’s huge estate.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff also unsealed court documents that revealed the family spent $1.1 million on Michael Jackson’s funeral in August, using money from his estate.

Katherine Jackson’s change of heart came three weeks after she hired attorney Adam Streisand to replace the lawyers who were leading her four-month-long challenge of Branca and McClain.

Streisand announced in court Tuesday morning that Katherine Jackson “feels it’s high time that the fighting ends.”

“She feels that Mr. Branca and Mr. McClain have been doing an admirable job,” Streisand said. “We’re going to try to partner with them and work closely with them to make sure that the estate is doing the best that it can for the legacy of Michael Jackson, for the kids, most importantly.”

Streisand said Katherine Jackson kept the decision a secret from the rest of her family until Tuesday.

It drew a harsh response from attorney Brian Oxman, who on Monday filed Joe Jackson’s challenge of Branca and McClain. It was a fight that Oxman said Katherine Jackson had promised she would help wage.

“She has now reneged on her obligation to her family,” Oxman told the judge. Joe Jackson’s lawyer said Katherine Jackson’s reversal was “one of the most despicable displays” he’s ever seen in court.

Oxman accused Katherine Jackson of reaching a secret deal — behind Joe Jackson’s back — with the men who control their son’s estate.
Her lawyer fired back.

“That is not only baseless, but just a product of Mr. Oxman’s imagination,” Streisand said.

There was no deal and it was a surprise to the estate lawyers, he said.

“Before I announced my position, Mrs. Jackson and I were the only two people in the world who knew what I was going to say,” Streisand said.

As for Joe Jackson’s challenge for control, Streisand told the judge, “He has no right in the assets of the estate.”

Until now, the Jacksons have painted a united public front in the battle over who controls the estate.

“Lawyer to lawyer, it was contentious between the two of us in there, in order to try to get things to come to a resolution,” Streisand said after court.

“She doesn’t wish in any way to be involved in any dispute or fight with him, but she wants to see things get moving along in a more cooperative way,” he said, referring to Katherine Jackson and her husband.

Joe Jackson, 81, and Katherine Jackson, 79, have been married for 60 years but they live separately.

Joe Jackson is not named as a beneficiary in his son’s 2002 will, but he filed a petition last week asking for an allowance from his son’s estate to cover $20,000 in monthly living expenses.

Katherine Jackson is a beneficiary of the will, along with Michael Jackson’s three children and unidentified charities, and she receives a monthly allowance as ordered by the court in July.

Katherine Jackson supports her husband’s request for a monthly allowance, Streisand said.

Howard Weitzman, the lead lawyer for the estate, said they would take her wishes into consideration in deciding their position on an allowance for Joe Jackson.

Judge Beckloff will hear his request for a monthly allowance on December 10.

Joe Jackson’s petition to challenge the executors is dead, unless Oxman can resurrect it in a appeals court, which he told the judge he may try.

“I hope that an appellate court will agree with me,” Oxman said.

Joe Jackson contended that Branca and McClain should be disqualified as executors because they hid from the court a mistake regarding Jackson’s signature.

The signature section of the will said it was signed on July 7, 2002, in Los Angeles, although there is proof that Michael Jackson was in New York on that date, Oxman said.

The judge ruled that only a beneficiary, such as Katherine Jackson, is in a position to make the challenge.

Court documents unsealed Tuesday showed the estate paid $1,098,000 for Jackson’s funeral and burial.

The bulk of the cost went to Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, which was paid $855,730, including $590,000 for the crypt and monument inside the Holly Terrace section of it’s Great Mausoleum, the document said.

Jackson’s burial garments cost $35,000, while another $16,000 was spent in flowers for the funeral, the papers said.

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, from what the coroner ruled was “acute propofol intoxication.”

LOS ANGELES — Doctors at UCLA were able to briefly re-establish Michael Jackson’s heartbeat at the hospital emergency room, but the King of Pop was “long gone” by then, according to a lawyer for Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson.

Joe Jackson’s attorney, Brian Oxman, says he mailed a notice to Dr. Conrad Murray over the weekend saying that Joe Jackson is planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against him in 90 days. The lawsuit accuses Dr. Murray of causing Jackson’s death by delaying the call for an ambulance, Oxman said.

“The bottom line is, had paramedics gotten there earlier and had they been called right away, chances are he could have been revived,” Oxman said.

Oxman said records showed that Jackson was “long gone, 20 to 40 minutes before the paramedics got there.”

“I want justice for Michael,” Joe Jackson told E! News. “They think they can sweep this under the rug, but I want justice.”

Jackson, 50, was pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center on June 25, 2009 — two hours after he arrived by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home.

The Los Angeles coroner concluded that Jackson’s death was caused by “acute propofol intoxication.” The autopsy revealed that Jackson’s blood had a level of propofol, a powerful anesthesia, equal to that used in major surgery.

Murray has been charged with involuntary manslaughter by acting “without malice” but also “without due caution and circumspection.” He is free on $75,000 bail.

A prosecution report leaked to the media last week included a statement from a witness who said Murray stopped resuscitation efforts on Jackson so he could collect propofol bottles.

Oxman says that the complaint must be filed by June 25 — the first anniversary of Michael’s death — which is the reason they are moving forward with the case now.

A spokeswoman for Murray’s criminal defense lawyer said he has not received the notice from Oxman.

The California state medical board will ask a judge to prevent Murray from practicing medicine in California while he is being prosecuted in Jackson’s death, according to documents filed last week by California Attorney General Jerry Brown.

Brown said in his filing that Murray, who was the pop star’s personal physician, “administered a lethal dose of propofol, as well as other drugs, to Michael Jackson.”

The next hearing date for the criminal case is April 5.


Conrad Murray – Michael Was Alive at UCLA

Posted Mar 30th 2010 2:00AM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned doctors who worked on Michael Jackson at the UCLA Medical Center ran two EKGs on the singer, and at least one doctor who interpreted the results claims there was heart rhythmic activity both times.

Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray
Furthermore, sources tell TMZ Dr. Conrad Murray insists he was able to restart Jackson’s heart at the singer’s home before paramedics arrived and then maintained heart activity in the ambulance.

Dr. Murray’s evaluation contradicts paramedics at the scene who wanted to take Jackson to the morgue, not UCLA, because they believed he was dead.

It also contradicts Joe Jackson’s lawyer, Brian Oxman, who tells TMZ he believes Jackson was dead even before paramedics arrived at the house. Oxman says the weak pulse detected at UCLA was in reaction to resuscitation efforts.

We’re told the criminal case is shaping up as a legal war between medical experts, who will be interpreting medical tests and charts in various ways — always confusing for a jury.

“Connect The Dots, Fool!”

Could this be what they are telling us? On March 4th, TMZ posted an article containing Jermaine’s response to the stun gun incident, and the title was, “Connect The Dots”. At the time, it was somewhat of an odd title for the post.

And before then, back in October 2009, TMZ posted an article about a letter that Arnold Schwarzenegger sent to the California State Assembly, after being heckled at an event. A not-so-nice message goes down the side of the letter – Arnold’s rep said it was “just a coincidence”:

So that takes us to more recent news. On 3/28, News of The World posts an article about how MJ was almost “brought back from the dead”: http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news/765565/Docs-got-brief-heartbeat-1hr-after-superstar-collapsed.html

In the article, with points bulleted with large DOTS, it states that documents revealed Dr. Murray:

If you “Connect The Dots”, it spells out the word “FOOL”. Prop, Fool anyone? (I mean..Propofol…)

Michael Jackson: It’s Time For Outlets to Take Responsibility in Covering the Rock Star

Thanks Jacqui!

Need more articles like this! Excellent!

Charles Thomson

Posted: March 2, 2010 10:10 AM

Last week Michael Jackson’s guitarist discredited widely reported allegations about the star’s behaviour on the road. So why is the media refusing to publish her comments? British writer Charles Thomson explores media bias against black music’s biggest star.

Aging glam-rocker Gene Simmons made international headlines last month when he claimed to know that Michael Jackson had molested children. In an interview with Classic Rock, Simmons alleged that Jackson was on tape ordering alcohol for children and that during the star’s 2005 trial a travel agent had testified to importing Brazilian boys for Jackson’s amusement. He also claimed that a musician friend had quit a Jackson tour after seeing ‘boys coming out of the hotel rooms.’

What followed was a classic example of copy and paste journalism. Within hours the story had been duplicated by hundreds of blogs, forums and news websites from Australia to India to the USA. None of them had fact-checked the story before they re-hosted it. Jackson was never on tape ordering alcohol for children. There was never any testimony during his trial about young Brazilian boys. Both of these claims were easily disproven by trial transcripts.

As a relative Jackson expert, I was also unaware of any musician ever leaving one of the singer’s tours midway through. So when I sat down a fortnight ago for an interview with Jackson’s long serving tour guitarist Jennifer Batten, I ran the story by her.

She told me that no musician had ever quit a Jackson tour. Two musicians had been fired but both were let go before the show hit the road, so they couldn’t possibly have witnessed anything going on inside hotels.

When Sawf News published Batten’s rebuttal I observed an all too familiar phenomenon. Although the story appeared on Google News and was picked up fairly swiftly by the Examiner, nobody else seemed willing to touch it. Whilst Simmons’s speculative and ultimately baseless accusations had been reproduced the world over, Batten’s expert rebuttal was being suppressed.

I soon began receiving emails from Jackson’s fans telling me that they were sending the story to every celebrity news outlet they could think of, including several of those which published Simmons’s initial allegations.

But more than 48 hours later, typing an exact quote from Simmons’s rant into a search engine produced almost 350 webpages. The number of news outlets hosting Batten’s rebuttal? Three.

This was not the first time I’d had a Jackson story suppressed. After Evan Chandler’s suicide in November 2009 I was contacted by the Sun and asked to supply information about the 1993 allegations. I spent quite some time compiling my research, advising the newspaper of common myths and how to avoid them, being careful to source all of my facts from legal documents and audio/visual evidence.

When I read the finished article I was stunned to find that all of my information had been discarded and replaced with the very myths I had advised them to avoid. I alerted staff to the inaccuracies but my emails were not replied. The same inaccuracies appeared in every single article I read about the suicide.

The same bias manifested itself the following month when Jackson’s FBI file was released. Across more than 300 pages of information there was not one piece of incriminating evidence — but that’s not the way the media told it.

A videotape seized at customs in West Palm Beach and analysed for child pornography was repeatedly referred to as belonging to Jackson. In actuality, files stated merely that the tape was ‘connected’ to Jackson and that connection appeared simply to be that somebody had written his name on the sticky label.

In another document the FBI logged a telephone call from a tipster claiming that the bureau had investigated Jackson during the 1980s for molesting two Mexican boys. The files made no other mention of the supposed investigation and the claim was ascribed no validity — the call was merely noted. But the media persistently referred to the anonymous tipster’s unsupported allegations as the FBI’s own conclusions.

Jackson’s FBI file overwhelmingly supported his innocence but its contents were routinely manipulated to give the opposite impression.

Many are quick to scoff when Jackson’s fans speak of a media conspiracy to destroy the star’s reputation and I used to scoff with them. As a member of the industry I prefer not to think of it as sinister and conspiratorial, but I find it increasingly difficult to explain away the bias with which Jackson is treated.

I wonder whether the problem is pride. When the 1993 allegations broke, the vast majority of information available was released, either officially or unofficially, by the prosecution. Jackson, meanwhile, remained characteristically silent.

Perhaps because the prosecution’s version of events went almost completely unchallenged (although I imagine that drama and selling newspapers had something to do with it, too), the media primarily chose to portray Jackson as guilty.

But as the facts started to trickle out it became increasingly apparent that the case was full of holes. The allegations had been instigated not by the boy but by his father, who had demanded a scriptwriting deal from Jackson before he went to the police. He was on tape plotting to destroy Jackson’s career and dismissing his son’s wellbeing as ‘irrelevant’. Then the boy told cops that Jackson was circumcised, but a police body search concluded that he was not.

Although Jackson’s innocence looked increasingly likely, most news outlets had made their bed and to this day they seem unwilling to do anything but lie in it.

Whatever the motivation, be it pride, profit or plain old racism, the bias against Jackson is undeniable. The suppression of Batten’s comments proves once more than when it comes to Jackson the media is interested not in fact or reason but negativity and sensationalism. Batten accompanied Jackson on all three of his world tours and was known for a decade as his ‘right hand woman’. But Simmons — who self-confessedly did not know Jackson — has been given over 100 times more media coverage for his inaccurate ranting than Batten has for her firsthand experience.

It is time for outlets to assume responsibility for their own content. Websites should not re-host other publishers’ stories unless they can be completely certain that the content is factual. Even if the media refuses to print the truth about Jackson, they should compromise by not printing the lies either. At least that way he can rest in peace.


Michael Jackson Bodyguard Fired

Posted Mar 29th 2010 12:50PM by TMZ Staff

Alberto AlvarezTMZ has learned the bodyguard who says Dr. Conrad Murray asked him to help hide Propofol in Michael Jackson’s house the day he died was fired from his job Friday by the Jackson family.

Alvarez had been working at the Jackson family compound in Encino since the singer died last June.

Alberto Alvarez is the bodyguard who called 911 from Jackson’s house. Last week it was reported that Alvarez told LAPD detectives … that before paramedics arrived on scene Dr. Murray asked him to put bottles of Propofol in a bag.

Alvarez — who is sometimes referred to as Jackson’s “logistics director” — did not tell detectives about the alleged cover-up the day Jackson died, but rather two months later. The story about the alleged cover-up broke last Monday.

As for why Alvarez was fired, the Jackson family isn’t talking.

Dr. Murray: Why Apologize? I Did Nothing Wrong

Posted Mar 28th 2010 11:55AM by TMZ Staff

Dr. Conrad MurrayTMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray has not reached out to Michael Jackson‘s family to apologize for the death of the singer. As for why Dr. Murray has not apologized … he believes he did nothing improper that would have led to Jackson’s death.

A source connected to Dr. Murray tells TMZ … Dr. Murray does not believe the Propofol he administered to the singer killed him, not withstanding the L.A. County Coroner’s conclusion that Jackson died from a lethal overdose of the anesthetic.

The source tells TMZ the reason Dr. Murray never told paramedics about administering Propofol is because he had no idea the drug was a factor in Jackson’s demise.

As for allegedly hiding Propofol bottles in the closet at Jackson’s house … Dr. Murray’s people note it was the doctor himself who informed LAPD detectives two days after Jackson’s death that the bottles were in the closet.


Michael Jackson was resuscitated an hour after suffering from cardiac arrest

By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 12:13 PM on 28th March 2010

Michael JacksonDrugged: Detectives found 11 containers of the powerful anesthetic propofol, some of them empty, at the house where Jackson died

Michael Jackson was resuscitated for ten minutes an hour after he suffered cardiac arrest, the Jacksons’ lawsuit has revealed.

An excerpt from the document, published in the News of the World, states: ‘At 13:21 hours or 1:21pm, the nurses and physicians at UCLA detected a weak femoral pulse and cardiac activity for Michael Jackson. At 13:22 hours he showed cardiac activity. At 13.33 he showed a weak ventricular rhythm (contracting of the lower heart chambers).

It continues: ‘Dr Cooper reported that when Michael Jackson was intubated with an endotrachial tube he had good breath sounds and “The initial cardiac rhythm appeared to be wide and slow in the 40s.” At 13.52 or 1.52pm he had a pulse of 53 beats per minute, with a MAE complex (major arrhythmic event).’

The 50-year-old’s father Joe Jackson believes his son’s death could have been prevented by his personal doctor Conrad Murray.

He said to the News of the World: ‘This evidence is damning. They should lock him up and throw away the key. It’s disgusting what happened here.’

The lawsuit against Murray is a catalogue of alleged decisions made by Murray which Jackson claims led to his death.

These include failing to tell paramedics he had given the singer Propofol – the anaesthetic coroners ruled led to his death.

Search warrants have also revealed large quantities of general anaesthetic and dozens of tubes of skin-whitening creams were discovered in Jackson’s home after the singer’s death.

Investigators went to his rented mansion on June 29 following a lengthy interview with Murray, who told them he had placed a medical bag in a cupboard in a closet.

At the home, detectives found 11 containers of Propofol, some of them empty, as well as a range of sedatives and various medical items including a box of blood pressure cuffs, according to the warrants.

Jackson’s death four days earlier was ruled a homicide caused by an overdose of propofol and other sedatives. Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

During their search, detectives found 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin, both of which are commonly used in the treatment of a skin condition Jackson had called vitiligo.

The disease creates patches of de-pigmented skin, and creams can be used to lighten skin that has retained its color to give a more even appearance.

‘Some people with vitiligo get to the point where there is so much of them that is pale, it makes more sense to remove the bits that are brown,’ said Dr. David Sawcer, assistant professor of clinical dermatology at the University of Southern California.

Benoquin is derived from hydroquinone. Though the creams can be used at the same time, it is unusual to do so, Sawcer said.

Enlarge   MJ A massive stash of drugs and skin whitening creams were discovered in Michael Jackson’s home

MJJackson’s body is loaded into a van to be taken to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office on June 25 last year

The medications typically come in travel-toothpaste-sized tubes and each treatment usually lasts a few months. Side effects include acute sensitivity to the sun.

‘In the places they have no pigment, they are exactly like an albino,’ Sawcer said.

The discovery of medical creams in Jackson’s home dovetails with an odd remark Murray reportedly made soon after Jackson’s death.

Conrad MurrayDr Conrad Murray faces involuntary manslaughter charges over Jackson’s death

Jackson’s personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams, told detectives that in the hospital where the singer was pronounced dead, Murray told him he wanted to return to Jackson’s house ‘so that he could pick up some cream that Mr. Jackson has so that the world wouldn’t find out about it.’

Alberto Alvarez, Jackson’s logistics director, who was summoned to the stricken star’s side as he was dying, told police Murray interrupted CPR on the pop star to collect drug vials.

He gave the vials and an IV line with a milky substance resembling propofol to Alvarez, according to the statement Alvarez gave police, and told him to put them in bags that were similar in description to those later found in the closet.

The skin cream was not listed as a factor in Jackson’s death nor was it detected in a toxicology report.

What killed Jackson, according to the autopsy report, was an overdose of propofol, an anesthetic normally used for surgery.

Murray told police he gave it to Jackson to help him sleep, a use anesthesiology experts have said is grossly improper.

Dr. Zeev Kain, anesthesiology department chair at the University of California, Irvine Medical Centre, said he was surprised by the amount of propofol detectives found.

Among the 11 containers police said they found were three 100ml vials, which Kain said could be used as general anesthesia for several hours.

‘A doctor should not use propofol at home to start with,’ Kain said.

The warrants also show Murray shipped propofol and other medications to his girlfriend Nicole Alvarez’s house in Santa Monica. It’s unusual to send propofol to a private residence but not illegal.


Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough? When is enough ENOUGH? For $ony – Never.

From http://www.mj-777.com

Contemplation . . .

Contemplation . . .

Flashback to 2002:

… But the dispute over the handling of ”Invincible’‘ grew out of a larger struggle between Jackson and Sony over Jackson’s effort this year to renegotiate his contract with the label, where he has spent his entire adult career, those involved in the negotiations tell the Times.

At issue are two sets of assets. One is Jackson’s master recordings, which Sony is supposed to turn over to him in seven years, but which he wants in three. (Owning those will mean he no longer has to split royalties with Sony.) The other is Sony/ATV, the music publishing company that Jackson co-owns with Sony, which holds the copyrights to several hundred thousand songs, including the catalogs of the Beatles and such Sony artists as Bob Dylan. (Last week, Sony/ATV bought Nashville publisher Acuff-Rose, which holds the rights to 55,000 country songs.)  Both Jackson and Sony want to buy out each other’s stake in the publishing venture, the Times says.

It appears it wasn’t enough to take the man’s life, now they want his entire catalog (MiJac), his share of Sony/ATV, and all the profits that can be had from his music – released and unreleased, for the indeterminate future and with John Branca to help them, the possibilities for Branca and $ony’s profits are endless – as they previously and rather blatantly said, although they used the name “Michael Jackson” in place of $ony Corporation in their statement of greed ie:

We and Sony feel that the future for Michael Jackson is unlimited,” said John Branca, a special administrator for the estate.

Actually, what is unlimited is John Branca’s and $ony Corporation’s collective greed, and Michael Jackson has little to do with that. In fact John Branca was the second person on his list of people Michael suspected were out to destroy him. Tom Sneddon was the first. And Michael was right about both of these men.

Michael Jackson ditched $ony years ago due to just the type of abuse as they are demonstrating now.  They were the first (This Is ItAnd just what will be left for Michael’s children and family by the time $ony is done emptying the trough of every last drop of profit they can suck from him?  When will $ony Corp. have stolen enough from Michael Jackson and his family? His very life wasn’t enough. What is? The term boundless greed comes to mind. film) and the second (this $250M deal) – not so coincidentally,  to step in to profit off of his death.

The quote below is from the SonyATV website in August 2009, after Michael’s murder. I love their language: “$ony Corp. helped facilitate the deal“. That’s very interesting terminology. The vultures did was that they inserted themselves into the deal so as to keep hold of that catalog in the event that MJ defaulted, or in any event – like his death, for instance. They were constantly meddling in MJ’s financial business in order to manipulate their way to that catalog, as we can plainly see.

Despite media reports of investor interest in Jackson’s half of Sony/ATV, Sony Corp. remains in the driver’s seat. When a cash-strapped Jackson refinanced his debt with the Fortress Investment Group in 2007, Sony Corp. helped facilitate the deal and in return secured the right to purchase half of his share in Sony/ATV at a predetermined price; it also became managing partner of the publishing company, giving it operational control. Sony also obtained the right to match any future offers on Jackson’s remaining 25% stake. Separately, sources say that Sony/ATV also gets a first look at purchasing Jackson’s own Mijac catalog upon the expiration of its administration deal with Warner/Chappell.

From Lynton Guest, author of “The Trials of Michael Jackson

In writing this book I investigated how, in his later years , Michael was beset with trials and tribulations which , on face of it, were unconnected to each other. There was the prosecution on child abuse charges, the downturn in record sales, the financial catastrophes and the struggles to retain ownership of assets such as Sony/ATV, his back catalogue of recordings and Neverland. Yet far from being coincidental, everywhere we detected the hidden hand of Sony Corporation attempting to orchestrate events.

The Medialoids

Statistics back it up: The lame$tream media is part of the PROBLEM, as per usual . . .

Media Tenor International analyzed the news coverage of ABC, CBS, Fox News and NBC in the time frame from June 1st 2004 until May 31st 2009 with a total of 150 portrayals of Michael Jackson in at least 5 seconds of air time. 90% (135) of those portrayals dealt with Jackson´s court case, while only one of the reports concentrated on his career and another one on issues of culture.

AEG

And, the quote below from an LA Times article, corroborates the fact that AEG had Michael Jackson over a financial barrel and that in fact, that is why they targeted him as easy prey to be manipulated into doing the O2 shows for them. Oh they were ‘helping‘ him alright. They had complete financial control of him. They told him at one point to ’straighten up’ or they’d yank the financial rug out from beneath him. They were paying the rent on his house in LA, his children’s education/tutoring, etc. – everything. Michael himself said he never wanted to tour again or it would kill him.  And so it did. Or I should say, THEY did.

The concerts, Phillips acknowledged, are a do-or-die moment for Jackson. “If it doesn’t happen, it would be a major problem for him career-wise in a way that it hasn’t been in the past,” he said.

‘The Estate’ and John Branca

The Probate Lawyer Blog featured this article about the Michael Jackson Estate several weeks ago, posing the question of whether it is ethical for estate executors to seek a 10% fee for certain business deals they reach for such a high-profile estate.

Well, this attorney, John Branca, and his co-executor, John McClain (a music executive), just hit the mother-load. It was widely reported yesterday that they brokered a deal worth up to $250 million dollars (that’s right — one quarter of a billion dollars!). What was the deal for? Sony announced a seven-year distribution agreement for unreleased music recorded by the late King of Pop (as well as related video footage).

Yes that means that Branca and McClain earned $12.5 million each for one deal.

Why do we question this? For several reasons, actually. First, it’s the job of executors to bring in as much money as possible for an estate that has earning potential like this estate has. They shouldn’t need a 10% incentive to do the job they’re required by law to do.

Exclusive: Michael Jackson’s ‘extraordinary stress’ from London contract

Posted July 6, 2009 • 9:44 a.m.

Just 48 hours before his death, Michael Jackson was “in a high state of stress and emotional drama, fearing that he would never be able to complete the 50-concert run in London, and it would kill him.” That’s the inside word from one of the closest business friend’s of the late King of Pop who he turned to often when problems were at their darkest.

I am sworn to never release his identity. The night that the rehearsals were filmed and recorded at the Staples Center in L.A., Michael returned home “exhausted, highly strung, stressed and sweating profusely.” Click HERE for CNN video of the rehearsals on YouTube.

Michael reportedly said: “We did it, but we can’t go on. I’ll never make all 50. It will kill me.”

Michael’s confidante told me that he had come up with a last-minute plan to meet everybody’s needs. He wanted AEG to stage the This Is It show as a one-night world spectacular — the largest one-time pop music event in history. It would be produced live from London, and it would be available in movie theaters, arenas and concert halls around the world simultaneously with immediate CD and DVD release.

Michael Jackson appears in London to announce his final concerts in the British capital this summer.

The concept was that Michael would still earn the money he desperately needed and AEG would make the same money in one night as they would from 50 shows.

Michael apparently believed it would work and everybody would be happy, but he was stressed beyond belief if AEG insisted on going with the original plan, according to his confidante. “He couldn’t sleep, he was exhausted, and he was more stressed than he’d ever been in his life,” I was told. “At the very moment he should have been able to get back on top of the world, he worried so much he wouldn’t be able to execute it, and disaster loomed. He thought this new plan was the best solution.”

But top business executives reportedly rejected what Michael proposed. His plan was nixed. He became even more stressed, and, according to my source, it was that stress and high-wired sleeplessness that drove him to seek relief in the illegally prescribed anesthesia that should have only been used in a hospital operating room.

‘Death drug’ linked to Las Vegas doctors?

Now five doctors are under investigation as to how Michael obtained Diprivan and other medical supplies found at his home. I’m reliably told that the trail will lead back to a Las Vegas hospital where one of those doctors was able to fulfill illegal prescriptions. The Los Angeles Times has reported that some of the drugs had no prescriptions on the labels, indicating that they may have been improperly obtained from a hospital’s supply.

The Los Angeles Times quoted two leading experts who said that Diprivan is so powerful, it should only be administered in a hospital — not in a private home — by a qualified anesthesiologist. “It’s a very dangerous drug if self-administered or administered by someone not trained in airway management and cardiac life support,” said Ethan Bryson, an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. “You need to have someone who knows what they are doing when they administer it.”

Paul Wischmeyer, an anesthesiologist at the University of Colorado who coauthored a 2007 study of Diprivan abuse in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia, was quoted: “A lot of people do it because it makes you completely blotto. It totally takes away all anxiety, all fear. It’s incredibly relieving of pain, anxiety and stress. People do it to escape.” He said he has seen people take the drug to relieve anxiety — and used it to escape.”

The product label from the FDA says a patient being given the drug should be monitored at all times for signs of low blood pressure, low oxygen levels and stopped breathing. Problems with the heart or breathing are more likely to occur after rapid administration of the drug. The label states that equipment to provide artificial ventilation, supplemental oxygen and CPR “must be immediately available.”

For the record, it is not yet known if this drug or others played a role in Michael’s death. Toxicology results have to be completed before the L.A. County Coroner’s Office lists the cause of death. However, the continuing inquiry by the LAPD has been beefed up with the DEA and California Attorney General’s Office.

Michael’s final days in $100,000-a-month Holmby Hills rental

Since moving from Las Vegas, Michael lived in a $40 million, 22,000-square-foot mansion built by Mohamed Hadid and Hadid Development Co. located in Carolwood in Holmby Hills in Westwood, a mile past the Beverly Hills Hotel and before the Bel Air Hotel. Neighbors include Hugh Hefner, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Mohamed released this photo of the home located on 1 1/2 acres he built in 1999 and lived in for three years before selling it to a private investor who purchased it in 2004. Michael leased it from the investor but was friendly with Mohamed and his children, who played with Michael’s three kids. This photo shows Michael with Mohamed, Mohamed’s children and his children Paris Michael Katherine, Michael Joseph Jr. and Prince Michael II. This was taken at Thanksgiving in the residence.

When Michael began rehearsals for This Is It in California, he insisted that AEG production people hire doctors for him, one of whom lived at the house almost round-the-clock and was scheduled to fly to London on the This Is It payroll.

This Is It tribute show with Las Vegas production

I can tell you on absolutely the best authority that a tentative offer was made to the Jackson family over the weekend for a tribute show on the Strip. Joe Jackson and other family members including Janet, but not LaToya, also are weighing their own tribute show here with a Beverly Hills producer. I’m told that negotiations will intensify this week after tomorrow’s memorial service and burial.

AEG hasn’t officially confirmed that there is sufficient video footage and multi-track recordings from the dress rehearsals to use for such a show. Click HERE for our original VDLX story with WireImage founder Kevin Mazur’s rehearsal photos.

But insiders have told me there is “sufficient — more than enough.” In addition to Michael taping all of the This Is It rehearsals from start to finish for a “making-of” TV documentary, he also had all the tracks from two albums that he had been working on in the Palms recording studio for three months when he lived here almost secretly at George Maloof’s casino hotel.

It’s believed that everything that was recorded as a safety precaution, and that can be used in a future show, is under tight security at AEG offices in Staples Center.

Last week, Michael’s friend This Is It choreographer and director Kenny Ortega, who created Sirens at Treasure Island, appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 with some of Michael’s dancers. They all agreed that as stunned as they were by his sudden death, they believed that Michael would have wanted the production to be seen by all his fans around the world.

Next Monday, Michael would have kicked off the first of his London concerts at the 02 Arena. On Saturday, it was Madonna who headlined there debuting the European leg of her continuing Sticky & Sweet world tour. She stopped the show to pay tribute to Michael, with one dancer dressed as and impersonating the Gloved One.

At one point, when Michael’s debut was pushed back from July 9, Madonna was blamed for not reshuffling her London dates to allow Michael’s crew in soon enough to build This Is It’s three stages and 22 sets for final rehearsals.

As investigators track down the cause of death and as the world mourns at tomorrow’s televised and streamed memorial, the mega-bucks business of pop music will continue to grind. Meantime, even free tickets for Michael’s memorial service tomorrow morning sat Staples Center have skyrocketed in price. Prices on eBay, despite the warning on the tickets that there is to be no resale, have shot up in some cases as high as $20,000 for two! One offer even has a whopping $600,000 price tag!

Michael, in death, will at some point go out with the biggest showbiz spectacular of all time and probably wind up making more money than even dreamed possible with the original 50 London show comeback.

War Brewing over MJ’s ‘Thriller’ Musical

Posted Mar 23rd 2010 4:00AM by TMZ Staff

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson is coming to Broadway, whether his estate likes it or not … at least that’s what the most famous Broadway family says.

Nederlander Presentations has filed a creditor’s claim, but it’s not asking for money. Nederlander wants the probate judge to tell the executors they have no choice but to honor a contract Michael Jackson inked in 2008 for a musical stage play featuring music from “Thriller” and “Off the Wall.”

The production hit a major road bump last year, when John Landis sued Michael Jackson, claiming MJ couldn’t make a deal for the musical without his sign off. Landis directed “Thriller.” That suit is pending.

Howard Weitzman, legal guru for the MJ estate, tells TMZ, “I’ve seen their creditor’s claim. I don’t agree with their request.”

Med Board Investigators — Conrad Murray Lied

This article implies Murray lied b4 so can be lying again in MJ’s case…

Posted Mar 26th 2010 6:14PM by TMZ Staff

Investigators for the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners have filed a formal complaint against Dr. Conrad Murray for allegedly lying … but not in the Michael Jackson case … according to documents obtained by TMZ.

According to the complaint, on June 13, 2007 and again on June 19, 2009, Dr. Murray applied for renewal of his medical license. One of the questions: “Are you out of compliance with court ordered child support?” In both cases Dr. Murray “answered in the negative” — meaning he said he did not owe any child support.

According to the Medical Board investigators, in June, 2007 Dr. Murray owed $7,255.86 and in June, 2009 he owed $10,131.05.

Bottom line — investigators say Dr. Murray lied.

You’ll recall Dr. Murray was in legal hot water over back child support last year, but dodged a bullet when he became current.

The complaint makes no mention of Michael Jackson’s death.

Investigators are asking the Medical Board to “determine what sanctions it determines to impose for the violations … committed by Respondent.”

Team Jacko — There Was NO Secret Wife!

Gosh, I really wish they’d drop the “Jacko”.

Posted Mar 26th 2010 7:59PM by TMZ Staff

Bad news for the women claiming to be Michael Jackson‘s secret wives — MJ’s estate just filed legal papers declaring the King of Pop had no official queen when he kicked the bucket.

In the documents, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Jackson’s lawyers state once and for all, “Michael Joseph Jackson did not have a surviving spouse. He was not married at the time of his death.”

It’s no coincidence the docs were filed now — next week there are two separate hearings about “spousal property” — presumably filed by women claiming to be Michael Jackson’s widow.

You know, these people really get on my nerves with their obsession with MJ’s skin whitening….  So F…..n what  if he had bleach creams! First of all, he did say he used them to even out the discoloration…

There’s people dying all over the globe from injustices, and yet the bleaching cream is what hits headlines…   Sick…

Michael Jackson

27/03/2010

Michael Jackson had over 30 tubes of skin-whitening cream at his home when he died.

The singer died in his Los Angeles home in June of acute Propofol intoxication by intravenous injection of another. His personal physician Conrad Murray has admitted administering the powerful anaesthetic to help Michael sleep, and has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for his role in the singer’s death.

After interviewing Murray following Michael’s death, police detectives went to the ‘King of Pop’s home to look for a medical bag the physician had put in a cupboard. The search warrants used during the visit were unsealed yesterday, and showed several vials of Propofol and 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin, which are both skin-lightening creams, were found.

The post mortem carried out on Michael showed he suffered from vitiligo, a condition which causes skin to lose its pigment. Benoquin is often prescribed to people with vitiligo to lighten the skin around the affected areas.

According to police statements, Michael’s personal assistant Michael Amir Williams told detectives that after the star was pronounced dead Murray said he wanted to go back to the mansion to “pick up some cream that Mr. Jackson has so that the world wouldn’t find out about it”.

Michael’s changing skin colour was commented on throughout his life. He was accused of deliberately making himself look white, although he always insisted his pale appearance was the result of vitiligo.

Also discovered at his home were sedatives and equipment to take blood pressure.

Earlier this week, it was revealed Michael’s logistics director Alberto Alvarez and two other members of his staff had submitted sworn statements saying Murray deliberately delayed calling paramedics so he could hide evidence of drugs in the room.

Murray’s lawyer Ed Chernoff has rejected Alvarez’s statement, insisting Murray did not try to hide drugs.

Murray will face court on April 5.
