Michael Jackson death hoax

PEOPLE VS. DR. CONRAD MURRAY Ex-Patient: Dr. Murray BLEW ME OFF

Hhhmmm, he can perform invasive procedures like inserting stents in the main blood vessels of the heart, but does NOT know CPR????  LOL, Yeah, right…

btw, cardiac arrest can happen often  in this type of procedure (PTCA), one would think Murray had to have had performed CPR several times in the course of his career…

Robert Russell — Dr. Conrad Murray’s Former Patient Testifies
Updated 9/30/11 at 9:30AM

0930_robert_russelDr. Conrad Murray‘s former patientRobert Russell testified today … he felt like Murray abandoned him when the doctor suddenly closed his Las Vegas practice to care for Michael Jackson.

Russell claims Murray operated on him twice in March and April 2009 to install several stents in his heart after he suffered a heart attack — and Russell was pleased with the results.

But Russell claims it went downhill from there — when Murray canceled two follow-up appointments in June 2009.

Russell claims Murray finally called and left a voicemail at 11:49 AM on June 25th — about 30 minutes before Alberto Alvarez dialed 911– explaining he would be leaving the country .

After Murray canceled the appointments, Russell claims he never saw the doctor again.

Michael Jackson Case—Medical Equipment Expert Testifies

Weird because I’ve never seen a pulse oximeter without an alarm.  I even went to the Nonin website, and can’t find anything that says “no alarms“.  You can choose the option to silence alarms, but as far as I know, they all come with alarms.   But this is just another “weird” thing in this whole case.  Propafol (and getting it in mid day, no less), cardiologist that doesn’t know CPR and who calls 911 a long time after MJ is unconscious, security cameras that disappear (has anyone heard what happened to them?), LA airport that closes just at the right time that day, etc, so why WOULD”T they have a pulse oximeter without an alarm? LOL    My common sense tells me this is all too fishy to be real. Way too weird!
0930_small_johnson_courtThe guy who manufactures the medical device that Dr. Conrad Murray allegedly snapped onto Michael Jackson‘s finger — after Alberto Alvarez called 911 — claims it was the wrong device to monitor MJ.

It’s called a pulse oximeter — and Bob Johnson of Nonin Medical Equipment testified today … Murray was using the wrong model for the job.

Bob claims the model Murray used to monitor MJ had no alarm — so if anything went wrong, Murray wouldn’t know.

A “Green” Day (From SeeingClues)

This is DIRECTLY from SeeClues blog.   I’ve pasted her entry here. Link to her blog is just below.

A “Green” Day

It’s always interesting when one of Conrad Murray‘s patients comes out of the woodwork to lend a comment about their experiences with the doctor. 

This time we have a patient named “Robert Day“:

Knowing that names of people in this investigation have provided some interesting coincidences, I did some research on “Robert Day”.

Turns out there was a “Robert Day” who was a movie director. Not only a movie director, but one of his films was entitled “The Green Man”:

Information can be found in the IMDB here -http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050456/

Hhmm..remember our “Green Man”?

UPDATE: An anonymous reader sent another connection!

When looking at the plot for “The Green Man”, we see that one of the main characters is William Blake. William Blake ultimately saves the main character from an assasination attempt:

The name “William Blake” recalls another place where we have seen this name, in it’s nickname form, “Bill Blake”. Let us reflect back to the mysterious tombstone that was in the Thriller short film in This Is It:

Picture credit to mjjstillalive.altervista.org

The tombstone reads Bill Blake, which would be a nickname version of William Blake.  (Hmm..we’ve had some discussions of nicknames versus full names before… ).  Could this name be inspired by the character in “The Green Man”?

The eerie coincidences continue……

Robert Day also directed a film entitled, “Corridors of Blood“. The main character develops an addiction to surgical anesthetics!
Information on this film can be found here:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051542/

Thank you @annabel_lee_h for that discovery!

But a blog reader “Sarah” noticed a few interesting character names in the film. Let’s look at the cast!

We have a “Resurrection Joe”, and even more curious, a “Mr. Blount”.  A paramedic with the last name “Blount” testified at the preliminary hearing.  Small world!!

As a side piece of trivia, an actor named Robert Day played a part in the 1980 film, “The Elephant Man“.

Make no bones about it, it must also be a silly coincidence… 🙂


Dr. Murray’s Medical Shingle Hangin’ By a Thread

1/12/2011 4:20 PM PST by TMZ Staff

Conrad Murray‘s medical career may not have flatlined — TMZ has learned the medical boards in Texas and Nevada will not automatically suspend his license just because a California judge did.

0112_conrad_murray_TMZ_EX

Sources connected with the Texas Medical Board and the Nevada State Board of Medical Examinerstell TMZ they are weighing their options regarding the suspension of Murray’s medical license.

Murray’s California medical license was suspended yesterday as a condition of bail in his ongoing Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

But we’re told … because a judge suspended Murray’s license and not the California Medical Board — TX and NV don’t feel compelled to follow suit and issue suspensions in their states.

We’re told Murray’s attorney, Charles Peckham, has been in talks with the NV med board and is making contact with TX as well — but no word on when a final decision will be made.


Dr. Conrad Murray — Winning ’em Over One at a Time

Yeah, full of hot air all right, LOL

1/9/2011 1:00 AM PST by TMZ Staff

Dr. Conrad Murray has a bit of a PR problem these days — and since people don’t just let you walk up and kiss their baby anymore, he did the next best thing … he bought a little girl a balloon.

0108_conrad_murray_video_ex_launch
A TMZ photog was out in Santa Monica on his night off when he caught a glimpse of Murray on the Third Street Promenade. Murray was walking along when he spotted the cute kid and the balloon animal practitioner … and made his way over.

Murray ponied up the few bucks for the little girl’s balloon and one for himself — it looked like he took the SpongeBob one.

If things don’t go Murray’s way next week, he may want to move into a pineapple under the sea.


MJ Producer Believes MJ Is ALIVE!!!!!

11/22/2010 9:32 AM PST by TMZ Staff

Michael Jackson is NOT DEAD — he’s still alive … just like Elvis … this according to a famous music producer who worked with MJ all the way to the possibly not-so-bitter end.

Michael Jackson Is Alive

Super producer Teddy Riley — who worked with MJ on the “Dangerous” album and produced the song “Breaking News” on the upcoming Sony album — has reignited the Michael Jackson conspiracy theory after twittering that he believes MJ is alive … somewhere.

Riley wrote, “If people can think Elvis is still alive why the F#*@ I cant [sic] think Michael is still alive.”

1122_riley_twitter

Just one day before the tweet, Riley received a message from a fan who wrote, “Akon said he believes Michael is in hiding and will be coming back one day. Im curious to know what ya think bout that.”

Riley responded, “AKON IS MY FRIEND AND WE THINK ALIKE.”

So, we gotta ask …

 


“If Michael Were Dead Now…”

Thanks Harvey! LOL

Is This A Message That Michael Is Alive?

And from TMZ (that we need to “backtrack” it for the message?):

Katherine Jackson’s Partner Backtracks on ‘New’ Song

11/7/2010 8:23 AM PST by TMZ Staff

The guy behind the website JacksonSecretVault.com — the one who called out the Jackson estate for releasing a song he insinuated wasn’t “authentic” — now has a big “authenticity” problem of his own.

1107_jackson_secret_vault_website_2
Howard Mann, Katherine Jackson’s business partner, now says the song his website released Saturday was not “unreleased” as he advertised, but rather a “remake.”  Pretty big difference.

Mann told TMZ on Friday his site was releasing the song “Opis None” in part to “overcome the confusion” that arose from the release of the song “Breaking News.”

But it turns out Mann is guilty himself of creating “confusion” by touting an unreleased song that was really a remake.

And on top of that, Mann touted that the release of “Opis None” was made with the blessing of Katherine Jackson.  Now he has taken all references to Mrs. Jackson out of the advertisement they posted on Friday (see below).

Michael Jackson’s ‘Breaking News’ — The Real Deal

11/7/2010 3:07 PM PST by Harvey Levin

Hey, it’s Harvey. We usually don’t write first person on TMZ, but I gotta tell you what I just heard.

Michael Jackson Breaking News song:

Someone has played me the song “Breaking News.” I’m not a music expert, but I am a Michael Jackson music fan … and it’s definitely Michael Jackson. The song — which is awesome — is a pretty harsh look through Michael’s eyes at the media. In essence, he is saying … You’ve treated me shabbily and you’ve hoped for my demise, but I’m back!

One of the lyrics:
“They want to see that I fall,
cause I’m Michael Jackson.
You write the words to destroy
like it’s a weapon.”

In another part of the song, Jackson sings:
“Everybody wanting a piece of Michael Jackson.
Reporters stalking the moves of Michael Jackson.
Just when you thought he was done,
he comes to give it again.”

The song is vintage Jackson. The initial beat will remind you of “Billie Jean” and there are all sorts of MJ trademarks throughout.

When you hear it, you will not be able to suppress the image of Jackson dancing to the song.

The song was recorded at the home of music producer Eddie Cascio, when Michael Jackson was living there for four months in 2007.

As good as the song is … it’s not the first single that will be released. We’re told we might be able to post a copy of  “Breaking News” on TMZ as soon as late tonight.

Katherine Jackson’s Partner Backtracks on ‘New’ Song

I admit being confused about Katherine’s involvement with Mann…   I don’t get it.  I know people say it’s for money, but somehow, I thought she was above all that.  There must be another reason…

Jermaine Commands Michael Jackson Army

Interesting title…. and the kids were there. Does it mean it’s MJ-approved?

 

10/4/2010 5:20 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

Jermaine Jackson squeezed into one of his old Jackson 5 costumes to perform a tribute to Michael inVegas this weekend — but the whole thing could ignite some serious family drama.

Jermaine Jackson
While cameras rolled, Jermaine performed a series of Michael Jackson‘s classics to a packed house at  the concert hall at the Planet Hollywood Resort.

Here’s the rub — Jermaine is legally allowed to cover the MJ songs in concert, but if he uses the recorded footage to create and then sell a DVD, album or TV special — he would need to go through theMichael Jackson Estate to secure permission.

So far, it’s unclear if Jermaine did get the green light — but if not, the MJ Estate could bring legal action against Jermaine to protect its most valuable asset … Michael’s music.

FYI … Michael’s kids — Prince, Paris and Blanket — were all at the show.

Jackson Executors: How We Turned it Around

And here’s a part of the reason for the hoax (maybe)…

9/23/2010 11:45 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

The executors in the Michael Jackson Estate have just filed legal docs explaining how they turned chaos and financial ruin into a booming, postmortem business.

0923_michael_doc_launch_EX

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jackson owed 10’s of millions of bucks at the time he died.  We’ve previously reported how the Jackson family was about to lose their home in Encino and Jackson was on the brink of going belly up.

Executors John Branca and John McClain turned things around in a big way, for two primary reasons.  First, they restructured all of his debts and got creditors to significantly lower killer interest rates.

Secondly, the executors went full bore to generate revenue — and the brass ring was the movie, “This Is It.”  According to the docs, the flick grossed $260,000,000, the most lucrative documentary in history.

As for the album, “This Is It,” it sold 5 million copies, making it the 3rd biggest album in 2009.

As for other deals, the executors:

– Republished the “Moonwalk” book
– Made mega-merchandising agreements for all things Jacko
– Distributed a leather-bound, coffee table book on the life of MJ
– Renegotiated MJ’s royalty agreements with record label

But there were lots of legal fees that were incurred to make the estate money — more than $3.8 million since Jacko’s death.

The estate also notes what we’ve already reported — that they paid off the Jackson family home in Encino, bought Katherine Jackson a car and did lots of other stuff for the family.

Elvis Presley/ Michael Jackson Similarities…

Thanks SeekingTruthMJ , Ann111 , and Dominique  from

http://thedeathofmj.forumotion.com/forum.htm

Amazing, the similarities…

Compare the voice and way of speaking in the next three videos…

First video is Jon Cotner speaking.

And there’s the Coke again,lol…

There are many reasons to believe that Elvis Presley is dead. When the only arguments to believe otherwise come from crazed fans and supermarket tabloids, it is easy to dismiss the possibility that the King is still among us. However, the circumstances surrounding Elvis’s alleged death are quite mysterious and beg closer attention. As it turns out, there are many concrete reasons to believe that the King is still alive.

The Gravesite.

For Starters, Elvis’s name is spelled wrong on his headstone. Elvis’s full name is Elvis Aron Presley, but on his grave his middle name is spelled incorrectly with two a’s. His father would not have let this happen. When Elvis was born, his name was misspelled on his birth certificate, and his father went to great lengths to get the error corrected. The unique spelling of Elvis’s name was important to the Presley family.
Elvis’s current “resting place” is in between his father and his grandmother and not next to his mother where he had adamantly requested. It is doubtful that the people close to him would allow these things to happen. Elvis is a superstitious man – enough so that he wouldn’t tempt fate by putting his real name on a tombstone, or violate the ground next to his mother until he was ready to be placed there for good.

Death Certificate.

Elvis was very vain, and he was embarrassed about his recent weight gain – an astonishing 50 pounds in the month before his so-called death. Even though he weighed about 250 pounds at the time of his “death,” his death certificate lists him at a spry 170 pounds. The original death certificate disappeared, and the current death certificate is dated two months after his alleged death.

The Wax Body Theory.

This argument is very convincing when the facts are considered. Elvis’s coffin required several pall bearers because it weighed 900 pounds. Attendants of the funeral reported that the air around the coffin was rather cool. It is suspected that the coffin contained an air conditioning unit to keep a wax body cool – a wax body that was a replica of the King designed to fool funeral-goers. And how did the Presley family get a 900 pound, custom made coffin ready for a funeral that was held on the day after his death? It takes a lot of time to build such an elaborate coffin.
And why have the funeral so quickly? Some speculate that the immediacy was intended to make it as difficult as possible for the people who were Elvis’s biggest fans (heads of fan clubs, etc.) to attend the proceedings. It could be a concern that they might recognize the flaws in the wax replica.
Elvis was an 8th degree black belt whose hands were rough with calluses, yet the body in the coffin had hands that were soft and pudgy. The body in the coffin had a pug nose and arched eyebrows (unlike Elvis) and most importantly, one of the sideburns on the “corpse” was loose and falling off. A hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body.

Unusual Behavior.

Two hours after Elvis’s death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the same name Elvis had used as an alias several times before.
Elvis had a few books that were considered to be his most prized possessions. He had a bible, several pharmaceutical books, books on death, and most importantly Chiro’s Book of Numbers and The Autobiography of Yogi which I will explain more about later. After Elvis’s death was announced, these books disappeared and were never recovered.
In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis’s actions were not those of a man who was about to embark on an extensive US tour. He ordered no new suits despite having gained 50 pounds since his last tour, and he bid “adios” at his last show in Hawaii. He had never done this before. Adios, like the French adieu, has the significance of being a final good-bye as opposed to an “I’ll be seeing you on my next tour” kind of good-bye.
Others were intrigued by the King’s decision to sign a lucrative TV deal with NBC that would cover the tour. It was unprecedented for a network to pay such a large amount up front, in cash, for such a deal. Many wonder why Elvis even agreed to the deal since his vanity discouraged him from making public appearances due to his obesity.
RCA showed uncanny (and unbelievable) foresight by mass producing millions of Elvis’s current and previous recordings and merchandise. This is standard practice for an act that is about to go on tour, but the numbers in this case were beyond reasonable expectations. The announcement of Elvis’s death caused record sales to skyrocket.
Elvis did other unusual things that created suspicion. First, he fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time. Also, two days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster. He told her that he wasn’t planning on going on the upcoming tour. She asked him if he had canceled it, and he said that he had not. When she asked if he was ill, he said that he was fine, and that she should not ask any more questions or tell anyone anything, and that she should not believe anything she read. He told her that his troubles would all soon be over, and that he would call her in a few weeks. The author of Elvis Where Are You? writes that Miss Foster took a polygraph test regarding this story, and that she was not lying.
The day after Elvis’s alleged death, a woman named Lucy De Barbon, a former lover of Elvis, received a single rose in the mail. The card indicated that the flower was from “El Lancelot.” This had been her pet name for Elvis, and it was a name that no one else knew. Flowers can’t be sent from beyond the grave. This was Elvis’s way of letting her know that he was not dead, even though he didn’t want to be found.

Chiro’s Book of Numbers.

Elvis had a fascination with numerology – an interest he fed by reading Chiro’s Book of Numbers. The theory that the King orchestrated his death is further supported when considering the significance of the date of his alleged death. The date in question is August 16,1977. By adding the numbers in the date, 8, 16, and 1977, you get 2001. This is the title of Elvis’ favorite movie in which the hero plans his immortality in the bathroom. Elvis spent a considerable amount of time doing the same: planning his afterlife on the john. Elvis spent so much time in the bathroom that he had his toilet converted into a reclining comfy chair. Coincidentally, the bathroom is also where Elvis’s body was reportedly found.
Given Elvis’s religious affiliation (Christianity), he had a fascination with things that come in threes i.e. father, son, and holy ghost. The sum of the digits from his favorite film (2+0+0+1) is three. Let’s consider the triad of the repetition of the number 24. 2001 (favorite film) less 1977 (year of death) is 24. The two numbers from the day of death (8/16) when added up equal 24. The sum of the digits in the year of death (1+9+7+7) also equals 24. That is 3 occurrences of the number 24 which is divisible by 3, and when divided by three the result, 8 has a perfect cubed root (2x2x2=8).
Elvis loved numerology, and when you consider the numeric significance of the date of his alleged death, it is clear that if indeed he did plan to fake his death, he could not have chosen a better date.

Motive.

Elvis had many reasons to fake his death. Elvis’s life was in danger. He had recently lost $10,000,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a California based organization called the “Fraternity” that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection – perhaps in the form of a new life and identity compliments of the witness relocation program.
In addition, Elvis was a prisoner of his own fame. He had many other reasons to leave his life behind. Because of his incredible popularity, he was the recipient of several death threats, and he was concerned about the safety of his wife and daughter. Sometimes when he wanted to leave Graceland, he would send out look-alikes to distract would be followers. Elvis was also known to ride in the trunk of someone else’s car to avoid detection. Once, when he fell ill in Las Vegas, he couldn’t get proper medical attention because the hospital was overwhelmed by fans.
At the time of his alleged death, Elvis was nearing the end of his career. He was 42, his hair was graying, he was grossly overweight, and his voice was starting to weaken. He was going down hill, and he was too proud to go out with a whimper. He would never want his fans to see him in such an unhealthy condition.
Elvis had shown a fascination with death on several occasions. In the days leading up to his alleged death he was reported to have visited funeral homes at odd hours of the night with close friends. Was he doing research? Elvis once faked his death by setting up an elaborate shooting in which a would be killer fired blanks at Elvis who had a blood pack which he discharged. It was Elvis’s intention to see how the people closest to him would react to his death. Perhaps what he learned convinced him to do it for real.
Finally, one of Elvis’ favorite books is the spiritual Autobiography of Yogi. One of the central themes of this book is the relinquishing of one’s wealth and earthly possessions to achieve spiritual oneness. Elvis could do this, as well as address his other concerns of sanity and safety by faking his death and living in exile.

Means.

Elvis had the means to fake his own death. He is accused of destroying himself with drugs. In reality, Elvis was a pharmaceutical expert. He took a lot of drugs, but he knew what he was doing and was extremely careful. He knew what drugs he could self-administer to create a deathlike state. Further, Elvis’s experience with the martial arts was such that he could slow his heart rate and breathing in order to feign death.
Elvis’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had once created a new identity for himself. He came to this county as an illegal immigrant from Holland, but through various connections managed to create an elaborate identity complete with a passport, birth certificate, drivers license, and social security number. He would have known how to give Elvis a second life.
In addition to Elvis’s ties to the government through his testimony against the Fraternity, Elvis was known to interact with the President of the United States. He was reported in government documents to use the name John Burrows as an alias when he wanted to travel. Some people believe that Elvis worked for the government as a drug agent. He did, after all have extensive contact with many people in the music business who, as we know, tend to dabble in illegal substances. (Remember Payola?.. ) And, of course, we must allow that Elvis’s connections to the government gave him access to the Witness Relocation Program. If they can turn the Simpsons into the Thompsons, they can relocate anybody.

No New Music, Orion?

Many believe that Elvis couldn’t have given up performing cold turkey. I imagine that after a while the desire to perform grew once he started his life in exile. The story of Orion supports the theory that Elvis attempted an incognito comeback.
Shortly after Elvis’s death, a masked singer by the name of Orion emerged on the scene. He was big like Elvis, and he sang just like Elvis. Because of the mask, no one could tell his true identity. One fan described seeing Orion from near the stage. She claims that Orion left the stage between songs, and when he appeared moments later the sweat was gone from his armpits and back and she thought that his costume looked slightly different. After the song he left the stage, and the original Orion returned.
Another fan described how she rushed into a tour bus at an Orion show only to see two Orions in the back of the bus. She claimed that one ducked into the bathroom before she could get a good look at him, but he appeared to look like Elvis Presley.
What’s even more remarkable is the fictional story called Orion that was written by Gail Brewer-Georgio about a legendary performer who had several identities and wanted to fake his death. The story was written and submitted to the William Morris Agency for publication consideration after Elvis’s death and before the real Orion ever performed. As it turns out, there are many ways in which the real Orion mimicked the events as described in the book. For example, the performers’ managers had the same name. Also, without knowing it, Brewer-Georgio wrote of events in Orion that had actually taken place in Elvis Presley’s life. It was a case of life imitating art.

Picking up the Pieces.

In 1981, 20/20 did an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged death of Elvis Presley. The investigative report was very convincing. Oddly enough, within two weeks of the report, the singer, Orion, disappeared and was never heard from again. The book, Orion disappeared from shelves across the country. It had been recalled by the publisher which was associated with the William Morris Agency. Incidentally, the William Morris Agency is the same agency that represented Elvis Presley.
I even tried to order a copy of the book, but was unable to. The woman at the book store said she couldn’t tell me why…….
It seems that Elvis Presley is worth more dead than alive. By faking his death and relocating with a new identity, he is safe from his fans and the Fraternity, the government can make a solid case against the organized crime ring, and RCA, Elvis’s family, and Elvis’s management can all reap immense financial benefits from the attention.
That is… except for one benefit. No one has collected on his life insurance policy.

7 Docs Cleared in MJ Probe … Not Doc Murray

And here’s the number “seven” again….

7/28/2010 6:45 PM PDT by TMZ Staff

Dr. Conrad Murray is still the lone suspect in the death of Michael Jackson after state investigators announced today that seven other physicians will not be charged.

0326_conrad_mj_bn

Attorney General Jerry Brown had launched a probe of seven other doctors who treated Jackson — mainly looking at the prescribing practices of the physicians.

One of the doctors on the list has been reported to the California Medical Board for prescribing drugs to an alias for Michael. That doctor was not named.

TMZ has learned … Katherine Jackson is knee-deep in a business deal to produce and distribute several movies on Michael Jackson‘s life, and she is on a collision course with the MJ estate.

Howard Mann, the guy who co-authored Katherine’s coffee table book, “Never Can Say Goodbye,” is also producing a movie that will feature video from Michael Jackson’s childhood through the end of his life.

We’re told Katherine has hundreds of hours of video, including the family’s big move from Gary, Indiana to L.A. after The Jackson 5 signed with Motown.

We’re told Mann just bought the rights to 26 hours of Michael Jackson video … owned by Michael Jackson’s former business partner/confidant Marc Schaffel.  We’re told Mann has paid Schaffel in the eight figures for the video.

Now here’s the problem … the Michael Jackson estate has the exclusive right to market Michael Jackson’s name and image.  We’re told Mann and company are comfortable with their legal position, because the beneficiaries of the estate — Katherine and Michael’s kids — are profiting participants in the movie.  In fact, Mann tells TMZ he and Katherine plan on releasing a series of movies.

The estate would not comment, but as far as our research shows, there’s no loophole when it comes to marketing Michael Jackson’s name and image — whether Katherine and the kids are beneficiaries or not.

Katherine Jackson ‘Planning Michael Movies’

MICHAEL JACKSON’s mother KATHERINE is reportedly in negotiations to produce a number of movies documenting her late son’s life.

The Jackson family matriarch is said to be teaming up with her new business partner Howard Mann, who collaborated on her recently-released coffee table book, for a series of films about the King of Pop.

Mann has allegedly paid millions of dollars to Jackson’s former business partner Marc Schaffel for 26 hours of footage of the singer from his childhood to use in the movies.

The clips, along with Katherine’s extensive home-videocollection, will form the basis of the big-screen ventures, according to TMZ.com.

The movies won’t be Jackson’s first posthumous appearance in cinemas – his concert film This Is It was released last year (09) and has so far grossed more than $260 million (£173 million).

Katherine Jackson and Mann are also said to be negotiating record deals to release 273 unheard songs by the late singer.

Katherine Jackson May Have Screwed Herself

What is happening with Katherine Jackson? We’re unsure of what to think lately… Man, I’d really hate it if people are screwing with her.

Katherine Jackson‘s quest for money may have just cost her dearly … because TMZ has obtained legal papers from a South Korean newspaper that is going after everything she makes … until she pays off a $13 million debt.

Segye Times, a South Korean newspaper, filed papers with the Michael Jackson estate, informing the court it got a judgment against Katherine in 1994 for $4 million. That’s when the newspaper advanced Katherine, Joeand Jermaine $5.5 million for a series of Jackson family concerts that never took place.

Segye claims with interest the judgment now exceeds $13 million, and it wants an order from the judge forcing the estate to pay Segye any money the estate might pay Katherine.

Now here’s how Katherine screwed herself.  By making all the deals she’s been making — for books, gala events and such — she’s made it clear to the world her goal is to roll in dough and Segye has taken notice.


Harvey Levin Tells How TMZ Broke Michael Jackson Death News

Before launching GossipCop.com, I toiled for a decade and a half in print and television, where — in the old days — if you had what you thought was an “exclusive,” you spent the night anxiously worrying whether a competing outlet would have the same story the next morning.

Of course, that all changed with the proliferation of blogs.

One year ago today, while meeting with my web designer about last-minute tweaks to GossipCop.com, which launched five weeks later, an e-mail alert came across my Blackberry.

There was silence across the office.

Michael Jackson had died at the age of 50.

And celebrity blog TMZ had broken the news exclusively.

I recently spoke to TMZ’s executive producer, Harvey Levin, about that fateful afternoon for a GossipCop.com story to coincide with the first anniversary of Jackson’s death.

When TMZ got its first tip, at around 1 p.m. PST, that Michael Jackson was being taken to the hospital, “it was not that alarming,” recalled Levin, explaining the singer had “been taken to the hospital many times before” for non-life threatening ailments.

“We didn’t think it was a life/death thing,” said Levin, until he received the next tip that Jackson had gone into full cardiac arrest.

And that’s when a “minor” Michael Jackson hospitalization piece turned into a “huge story” for him.

“Everyone stopped what they were doing,” Levin told me. Not because his team was in total shock, but rather because it was the story and his entire staff, from the reporters to the art department to the support staff — anyone who might know anyone — was needed to call sources and verify the cardiac arrest claim.

“Word came fairly early on it was grave,” Levin vividly remembers.

And after multiple sources provided “credible information,” TMZ was 100 percent certain the King of Pop had passed.

“We knew it long before we published it,” said Levin, whose team nevertheless continued calling sources for a full hour afterwards, double and triple-sourcing their story.

“What could we be missing,” Levin asked himself at the time, wanting “a certain feeling before we pushed the publish button.”

Having confirmed with various parties, TMZ had nailed it.

“There was no doubt” about the scoop said Levin, who was told at the time that “EMTs wanted to pronounce him dead at the house, but Dr. [ConradMurray didn’t want to.”

Other outlets quickly began to question whether TMZ stood by its story, and rumors even spread that Jackson was alive and rehearsing at the Staples Center.

At that point, though, the only questions TMZ had, Levin said, were “Why did this 50-year-old die” and were drugs involved? And why did the doctor say Jackson was still alive at the home when EMTs claimed he died in the house?

Without taking a moment to breathe – or even congratulate itself for the year’s biggest celebrity scoop – the TMZ staff immediately got back to business because “We knew there was a much bigger story,” said Levin, rattling off issues, including “drug abuse, celebrity privilege, money, family, trust… ”

Indeed, those subjects will undoubtedly dominate more headlines as the Jackson family, Dr. Murray, creditors, the estate, and sundry other individuals and corporations head into court this year.

Though Levin was initially referring to Jackson’s finances, in a larger sense the TMZ head honcho was correct when he told me, “Michael Jackson may be bigger in death than he was at the end of his life.”

Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain: with blogs like TMZ – and now GossipCop.com – looking for scoops every day, the “Moonwalker” star will be the subject of many more cyberspace stories, day and (middle of the) night.

MICHAEL JACKSON MAKING ANNIVERSARY APPEARANCE

Ok, I know this is a tabloid,lol, but they’re also the ones who posted YEARS ago that MJ would fake his death !  THAT article follows this one… Make sure you check the DATES these stories were posted…

Posted on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, CA – The King of Pop is expected to make a special appearance on the anniversary of his “death.”

Michael Jackson’s “death” was mourned by millions around the world. The world lost an icon, an innovator and a legend that will never be replaced. As his anniversary approaches, special tributes will be appearing across the globe.

In his hometown of Gary, Indiana, Katherine Jackson will unveil a monument outside the house where the Jackson 5 began their singing career. A memorial and candlelight vigil will follow.

All nine Madame Tussauds wax museums – from Shanghai to Washington D.C. – are creating special tribute exhibits.

In New York, the Apollo Theater’s marquee will feature a special MJ message, and Jonelle Procope, president and CEO of the Apollo Theater Foundation, will speak briefly on Friday morning about Michael Jackson to honor his memory and celebrate his lifetime of artistic achievement.

While all those memorials will certainly be wonderful and very special, Weekly World News has learned of perhaps the biggest celebration of them all. Our investigative team has discovered that the King of Pop, Micahel Jackson himself, will be holding a special celebration at Neverland Ranch.

WWN broke the story that it was widely believed that Michael Jackson may have faked his own death. Jackson, fed up and disheartened with the path his life had taken, felt as though the only way to get a breath of fresh air was to fake his own death. Rejuvenated and mentally refreshed, Jackson is believed to be organizing a special event back on his Neverland Ranch. Taking a one-year hiatus was exactly what the doctor ordered.

The event is believed to include everything imaginable. There will be a carnival available for the kids to enjoy, outdoor activities will entertain adults and there will be performances from various artists throughout the day. The King of Pop himself might even treat everyone to a performance.

“Our sources believe that Michael Jackson will host a special celebration at Neverland Ranch on Friday – a year after his ‘death,’” said WWN correspondent Buzz Donovan. “While he feels terrible that he had to resort to such drastic measures, it was the best option at the time to allow him to continue as an entertainer in the future.”

Michael Jackson’s Inner Circle Addresses Rumors

Decades of Working With Star Gave Three Stylist Friends Unique Insight Into the Real Michael Jackson

By JOSEPH DIAZ
June 25, 2010

It was the most private of times for the most public of people. Michael Jackson’s family had his body taken to the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles, the final resting place of so many of Hollywood’s elite.

To prepare Jackson for his final farewell, his family had turned to the three people who’d been dressing the star and making him up for more than a quarter century — Dennis Tompkins, Michael Bush and Karen Faye.

“Nobody else could have [done it],” said Faye of the honor to make up her friend one last time. “I knew how he wanted to look. So I did it for his children.”

Stylists Tompkins and Bush designed brand new clothes for Jackson, incorporating elements from the King of Pop’s favorite looks throughout his career. Tompkins, who created the majority of Jackson’s most memorable outfits, described his stage attire as “Liberace gone to war.”

Notably absent from Jackson’s funeral attire, though, was his most iconic accessory — that legendary single white sequin glove.

“To Michael, the glove was Billie Jean,” said Bush. “That represented that song. That’s not Michael Jackson.”

These are people who knew the man behind the music; knew him stripped of the artifice he so cleverly showed the world. Private and never-before-seen images which ABC News paid to license from the three friends’ personal collections provide snapshots of the global superstar’s most unguarded moments.

Showman to the End

But at the time of his death, Jackson’s inner circle was determined that the King of Pop would exit this earth as the world knew him: a showman.

For nine hours, Faye and Bush fought back their own grief and the overwhelming smell of formaldehyde to prepare Jackson for his final curtain call. After dressing him, Bush even helped to lift and place the body in the coffin.

“The work me and Karen did with Michael at Forest Lawn, that bonded us for life,” said Bush.

In an exclusive interview for the “20/20” special “Michael Jackson: After Life,” Tompkins, Bush and Faye talked with ABC’s Cynthia McFadden about what it was like to work with the star — and addressed persistent rumors that followed Jackson about his sexual orientation, his plastic surgery and his reported drug abuse. The interview marks the first time the trio has spoken publicly about their friend.

Karen Faye met Michael Jackson in 1982, when she was hired to do his hair and make-up for the “Thriller” album cover.

“He walked in; he was very shy but was very gracious,” Faye remembered. “Everything was ‘please’ and ‘thank you.'”

Faye said she was not at all intimidated by his fame. For example, when she saw that Jackson had with him a baby tiger, she flashed her tiger-print underwear.

“He went ‘Ah!'” Faye said while demonstrating how he covered his face. “He was just so embarrassed by that. But I think that’s why he called me back the next job. He liked people who have a sense of humor.”

The conventional wisdom is that Jackson began taking painkillers after his hair caught fire during the taping of a 1984 Pepsi commercial. Faye maintained that wasn’t the case. She said the musician’s use of prescription drugs began in 1993 — almost ten years after now-infamous commercial.

“Just before we went on tour for “Dangerous,” he had an operation, in order to help the scarring. But he didn’t have enough time to heal,” said Faye. “So in order to keep going, he started using painkillers, because it is very painful when nerve endings are severed.”

Faye said she has no idea what drugs Jackson was taking.

Sexual Abuse Rumors

Bush and Faye were with the star in Bangkok when Jackson’s world exploded: Californiaauthorities announced they were investigating the singer for allegedly sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy.

“The day that came out, he was stepping onstage in front of 80,000 people,” recalled Bush.

“It was devastating,” said Faye, “because he had to go out every day in front of a world and the media that was [saying] he was pedophile.”

Faye said painkillers “gave [Jackson] the ability to get through” the combination of the emotional pain brought about by the allegations and his already existing physical pain.

A few months after the allegations came to light, Jackson settled out of court with his accuser for a reported $20 million.

Then, nearly a decade later, another boy came forward, also claiming that Jackson had sexually abused him. The boy was seen in a British documentary holding hands with the musician, and Jackson spoke of their sharing a bed. The remark fueled Jackson’s prosecution.

“He said the word ‘bed,'” recalled Bush. “A lot of people think sexual, and that is the farthest thing from Michael’s mind.”

Jackson’s inner circle is adamant that the star was not a pedophile or homosexual, as many have speculated. According to his friends, Jackson constantly checked out the “hot girls” who appeared in his videos.

Jackson was acquitted on all charges after a three-and-a-half month trial. The taint of the accusation, however, lingered. The trial on the second round of allegations was devastating for Jackson.

Karen Faye and Michael Bush were at Neverland early every morning to get their friend and boss ready for court.

“Before I washed his hair, we knelt down on the ground and [Jackson] put his arms around me and wept. We would pray for God to help us and for people to know the truth,” said Faye, adding that situation was just “vicious” and tore Jackson up inside.

Each day when he walked into the courtroom, running the gauntlet of cameras, he wore a new outfit designed by the stylists who became his friends — a small morale booster.

In his art, Michael Jackson played repeatedly with the idea of metamorphosis. Many of his music videos, including “Thriller,” “Black or White” and “Remember the Time” feature him morphing into someone or something else.

Nowhere was the theme more prominent than in the little-known mini-movie “Ghosts,” in which Jackson becomes a middle-aged white man.

As his makeup artist for more than 25 years, Karen Faye knew Jackson’s face almost as well as he did. She said one thing is certain: Jackson had vitiligo, a skin condition producing white blotches.

As for the eyeliner and lipstick Jackson preferred, Faye said: “He didn’t like the line that was drawn between what’s allowed for men and what’s allowed for women.”

Faye acknowledged that Jackson had plastic surgery. “He was always trying to perfect everything,” she said. Faye denied, however, rumors that the star had a prosthetic nose.

“It was the tape that he used to wear on his nose to [help] keep it in form or else it would expand,” she said. But she admitted that she personally thought Michael Jackson went a little too far with plastic surgery.

‘This Is It’

Soon after Jackson announced his final tour, “This Is It,” Faye received a call from him asking if she would team up with him once again.

Faye says she sensed he was frightened of being judged again. He was still stung by the worldwide backlash against him.

“Standing up in front of an audience, all that fear, all that doubt, all the cruelty people directed at him, he was afraid,” said Faye. “He didn’t want to go through that again.”

Faye said she was concerned that Jackson was too thin to do the show. As the clock ticked, the pressure mounted.

The tour was going to be his first major appearance since the trial ended, and it would be the first time his children would him see perform on stage. The stage was his element, a place he had electrified countless times, dazzling millions, since hitting it big as child superstar in 1969.

Faye, Bush and Tompkins couldn’t comment on whether Jackson was taking any medications while preparing for the “This is It” tour,because the three anticipate being witnesses at the upcoming trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal physician. But they say they were all extremely concerned about the star’s well-being.

According to Bush, Jackson was “bone-thin.”

“I feared he was physically unable to do the shows,” Faye said.

The Day the News Came

On June 25 last year, Karen Faye was waiting for Jackson at the Staples Center to begin rehearsals when she got the news she dreaded — Jackson had been rushed to the hospital.

She then got a phone call from her boyfriend, who said he heard news reports that Jackson had suffered a heart attack.

“So many things went through [my] mind,” Faye said. “But because of my fears I knew it was probably true.”

According to Faye, the tour’s director and choreographer, Kenny Ortega, instructed everyone to carry on as usual.

But then the moment came.

“I was headed back to my make-up room,” said Faye, “and Kenny came out of his office and he put his arms around me and whispered, ‘He’s gone. We lost him.’ And my knees just collapsed.”

Faye said she believes that if people paid attention, the world would still have its King of Pop, Michael Jackson. She said she takes solace in remembering all the great times she had with the star, and the laughter that first brought them together.

Stripper: I Saw Murray Drinking the Night MJ Died

Well, I hope “da troot will prevail”… Would be nice if it prevail very soon…

Originally posted Jun 25th 2010 1:00 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

A stripper claims she was working at Sam’s Hofbrau in downtown L.A. the night before Michael Jackson died and saw Dr. Conrad Murray in the strip club, drinking  … something Dr. Murray has flatly denied.

0624_hoffbrau

The stripper, who is shopping her story, claims Dr. Murray was at the club before midnight on June 24, 2009.  She says after Jackson died … management told employees not to speak to anyone about it because “they didn’t want to be involved.”

The stripper says Dr. Murray was at the club several times in May and June.  Sam’s Hofbrau is a couple of miles from Staples Center, where Michael Jackson had been rehearsing for his London concert that same evening.

Dr. Murray’s rep has previously said the doc was not at the club the night before Jackson died, adding that Dr. Murray does not drink.

Joe Jackson‘s lawyer, Brian Oxman, has sent Dr. Murray a notice of intent to sue for wrongful death.  In those docs, obtained by TMZ, Oxman claims Dr. Murray was at the club, drinking, just hours before MJ’s death.


Michael Jackson fans get ready for Michael Jackson memorials

Michael Jackson fans in New York, L.A., and around the world remember Michael Jackson on first anniversary of death.

Michael Jackson sand sculpture created by Indian sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik in tribute to Michael Jackson on a beach at Puri, some 65kms east of Bhubaneswar on June 25, 2010, to mark the first anniversary of the musician’s death.

NEWSCOM

By Nekesa Mumbi Moody, AP / June 25, 2010

New YorkAs the first anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death drew near, Julia Thomas clutched her “Thriller” liner notes and stood outside the Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, Calif., the final resting place for the King of Pop, with about two dozen other fans.

“Michael has just always been a part of my life,” the 40-year-old Thomas, who has a tattoo of Jackson’sdancing feet on her left wrist, said Thursday night. “I’m just hoping to embrace the fans from everywhere.”

Barricades were already set up at the Los Angeles-area cemetery for the huge throng of fans and some ofJackson’s family members expected to arrive on Friday, which marks a year since Jackson died at age 50. Five large wreaths of flowers and dozens of bouquets, drawings and photos of Jackson had been placed outside his private mausoleum.

Evdokia Sofianou, 46, and her 9-year-old daughter, Rebecca, traveled from Athens, Greece, to pay their respects.

“I came because I love Michael very much,” Sofianou said. “I came to grieve.”

Forest Lawn was to be just one of the many places around the world where Jackson’s fans would gather to remember their fallen legend on Friday. But not everyone planned to be grieving.

On Friday, DJ Jon Quick was to spin Jackson tunes at the club Taj in Manhattan for a festive affair.

“They wanna celebrate his life and music,” Quick said of the expected partygoers. “His albums are like timelines in your life. You can remember what you were doing … when ‘Thriller’ came out.

Some anniversary events began even before Friday. In London, a memorial was unveiled Thursday to a gaggle of press who packed the foyer of the Lyric Theatre, the site of an impromptu wake following the pop superstar’s death last year.

Perri Luc Kiely, 14, a member of the dance troupe Diversity, pulled back a pair of dark purple curtains to reveal a small plaque featuring a young Jackson with a wide, beaming smile.

In Hong Kong, Jackson imitators performed to the late singer’s classics at a suburban mall Thursday. Four-year-old Wang Yiming danced to “Dangerous” wearing Jackson’s trademark black fedora hat, a black suit with a silver armband and white socks.

In Gary, Ind., Jackson’s hometown, there was to be a tribute at the family home; city officials said they expected Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and his niece Genevieve Jackson to show up, along with thousands of others.

But his brother Randy Jackson was hoping to make the official family commemoration at Forest Lawn on Friday morning.

“My family and I will be in attendance as we mourn the loss of my brother,” he said in a statement Thursday. “I would like to thank the fans and friends for their continued love, support and prayers.”

Katherine Jackson has thrown her support behind a “Forever Michael” fan event to be held Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. Tickets range from $150 to $500.

The Apollo Theater in Harlem, where a young Michael Jackson and his brothers won amateur night, on Friday was to host a commemoration of Jackson’s life in front of the recently installed plaque honoring him in the legendary theater’s new hall of fame.

And later in the afternoon in Harlem, around the hour of Jackson’s death, the Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network were to hold a moment of silence.

Sharpton, a longtime associate of Jackson and his family, gave impassioned remarks at Jackson’s televised memorial last July and said he thought a moment of silence was appropriate to show “the sanctity of the hour.”

“He meant a lot to us of all races in terms of bringing us together in another kind of spirit,” Sharpton said. “I wanted to make sure that we showed that in the middle of all this that is going on in the world that Michael is someone that we would all stop for … . He was more than just a singer, he was a social force and a sense of inspiration.”
