Godfather's Son Implicated

It is reported that one of Marlon Brando's sons has been implicated in an alleged plot, by Michael Jackson, to kidnap the boy who accused Jackson of child molestation.

This allegation was made during yesterday's pre trial hearings. The prosecution revealed that they have discovered documents, that link Miko Brando with the alleged crime.

Miko works as a security guard for Jackson and received a $20K petty cash payment from Jackson, according to the prosecution, in December 2003.

The record of this transaction was seized from the home of Jackson's personal assistant.

The defence argued that the payment proves nothing, and that this along with other evidence should be ruled inadmissible for the trial.

The prosecution also contend that Jackson "fixed" demonstrations outside of the courthouse in Santa Maria.

The next hearing is scheduled for 22 November.

More Skeletons

Isn't it funny how skeletons come out of the cupboard, when a major trial is about to start?

It seems that Michael Jackson is facing just such a skeleton, in the form of Joseph Bartucci.

Bartucci has filed a case, in Louisiana this week, against Jackson; claiming that he has just remembered being forced to have sex with Jackson in 1984.

Allegedly Bartucci, who was 18 at the time, was forced at gunpoint by Jackson's aides to have sex with Jackson.

It seems that he had totally "forgotten" the incident, until seeing a programme about Jackson's current legal issues.

Sneddon Stays

In a rebuff to Michael Jackson's defence team, Bill Lockyer (California's attorney general), has ruled that DA Tom Sneddon will remain as prosecutor in the trial of Michael Jackson.

Jackson's defense attorneys had argued that Sneddon holds a grudge against Jackson.

However, Lockyer has ruled that Jackson's team had not come anywhere near to proving misconduct by Sneddon.

Jackson's Lawyers Get Heavy

It seems that Raymond Chandler, author of "All that Glitters", is having a little trouble promoting his book.

The book claims that Chandler's nephew, Jordie Chandler, received death threats after alleging that Jackson abused him in 1993.

However, according to reports, it is alleged that Jackson's lawyers have been putting pressure on Chandler to scale back the publicity for the book.

Which is somewhat perverse, as this naturally gives the book even more publicity!

Attorney General Steps In

Bill Lockyer, California's attorney general, has urged the judge in the Michael Jackson's child molestation case to reject the bid by Jackson's defence to remove Tom Sneddon, the Santa Barbara County prosecutor, from the case.

Lockyer has called the request "baseless".

Jackson's lawyers allege that Sneddon is "blinded by his zeal".

Jackson's attorneys do not seem to like Sneddon's "smug" and "jocular" manner during a news conference, in which he announced Jackson's arrest.

It all seems to be getting rather personal.

Another Member of The Jackson Clan

It seems that Michael Jackson has a secret half sister, 16 years younger than him; that is according to reports in a British tabloid.

Her name is Joh'Vonnie Jackson, she apparently worked as an airport baggage handler. However, it is not thought hat she has met her half brother.

It seems that her mother, Cheryl Terrell, and father Joe had a fling back in the seventies.

She allegedly lives with her father in Las Vegas.

No Way

The state Attorney General's Office has said no to the request of Michael Jackson's defence lawyers to remove Santa Barbara County District Attorney Tom Sneddon from Michael Jackson's child molestation case.

No surprises there then!
