Geller Falls Out With Jackson

Michael Jackson's alleged anti-Semitic comments have lost him a friend.

His friendship with mystic spoon-bender showman Uri Geller is now on the rocks.

Geller, who is of Jewish descent, is reportedly disgusted by reports that Jackson made anti Semitic comments.

Jackson allegedly called Jewish people "leeches" on a voicemail message.

Geller, who was best man for Jackson in 2001, claims that their friendship is at an end.


"I don't want to hear from Michael Jackson ever again.

I'm Jewish, I was born in Israel, and I will never forgive him

It should be remembered that Geller persuaded Jackson to do the now infamous Martin Bashir documentary, which was the catalyst for the child molestation trial.

Animals Not Mistreated

Further to the earlier stories about PETA accusing Michael Jackson of mistreating and neglecting his animals at Neverland.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture sent an inspector to Neverland, in response to the PETA complaint.

Darby Holladay, a spokesman with the USDA in Washington D.C., is quoted as saying:

"I'm unaware of any violations of the Animal Welfare Act at Neverland."

Lisa Wathne, PETA's captive exotic animals specialist, said that they did not try to confirm the tabloid reports before making its complaint.

"Because Neverland is not open to the public, it's very difficult to get information about the place. But when we hear accusations like that - and many accusations - we have to take note.".

Jackson Looking For Work

In what seems to be a creditable display of finally grasping reality, with respect to his financial situation, Michael Jackson is reportedly looking for work in Bahrain.

It seems that he is negotiating a position as a consultant with a Bahrain company, AAJ Holdings Ltd, that plans to set up theme parks and music academies in the Middle East.

AAJ Holdings Ltd is owned by Bahraini businessman Ahmed Abu Bakr Janahi, and has told the press that it wants to hire Jackson to give advice on setting up entertainment businesses.

AAJ, which focuses mainly on urban development projects, played a major role in designing Bahrain's ongoing Financial Harbour development and Oman's Blue City, a multibillion-dollar tourist resort with golf courses, hotels and beaches.

AAJ have stated:

"Stagnant architectural structures need content in the form of entertainment to revive them and that's where Michael Jackson will play an integral role."

Jackson is reportedly building a home in Bahrain.

Animal Cruelty Allegations

Michael Jackson has been accused of animal cruelty at Neverland.

PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals the animal rights activists, have demanded a probe into the conditions at Neverland.

PETA claim that giraffes, elephants and other creatures are imprisoned in squalid and cramped surroundings. They also make claims, allegedly backed by photos, that the poor animals have to live in their own faeces.

Lisa Wathne, of PETA, said:

"These photos make it clear that the animals are being held in what can only be described as cruel conditions.

They are abysmal and little more than holding cells. My message to Michael Jackson would be to close this place down and relocate the animals to an accredited zoo or sanctuary

PETA has written to the U.S. Department of Agriculture asking it to launch an investigation into conditions.

As if to add to the animals' alleged woes, employees at Neverland claim that the feed supply is fast running out.

One of the remaining Neverland staff is quoted as saying:

"Most of the staff have gone. Hundreds of people used to work here - now there are only ten or so.

The electricity is only on in some parts of the house. Some rooms have been stripped of everything. Neverland is falling apart

Jackson is also being sued by Martin Dinnes, owner of Dinnes Memorial Veterinary Hospital, for £51K in unpaid bills.

Brian Oxman, Jackson's lawyer, stated:

"Michael Jackson does not wish to comment on this story."
