As has been demonstrated time and time again with the Michael Jackson trial, nothing is really what it seems
Last week Jackson's ex wife, Debbie Rowe, gave testimony about Jackson in which she called him her friend and praising his parenting skills.
Her testimony was blown out of the water yesterday, by California detective Steve Robell.
He claims that she was not complimentary about Jackson in a taped interview that he conducted.
Robell claims that Rowe had given him a very different story when he interviewed her in March, 2004.
Rowe allegedly told him that Jackson was "a sociopath", and that their two children were seen as his "possessions."
Robell also testified that when he asked Rowe if the statements she made in the videotaped rebuttal, which aired on TV in 2003, were true, she said they were false.
As ever, the jury will have to wade their way through the stench of lies and greed that pervade this trial.
