Jackson Breaks With Bahrain

Michael Jackson has left Bahrain, amid reports that he has fallen out with Prince Abdullah of Bahrain, and returned to stay with his family in Encino California.

He would have doubtedly gone back to Neverland; however, because of unpaid wages and insurance, Neverland has been closed by order of the state of California.

In one small bright piece of news for Jackson, it is reported that his sister Janet has brought Michael's $2.2M mortgage on the family's Encino home.

Had she not done that, it is likely that he would have had nowhere to stay.

Neverland Shut Down

Evidently Michael Jackson's finances are in a very parlous state, as it seems that he has not been paying staff insurance or indeed the staff who work at his now abandoned Neverland.

As a result of this foolish lapse, California officials have fined Jackson $170K and ordered employees at the Neverland to stop working.

The California Department of Industrial Relations issued a "stop order" on Neverland. This prohibits employees from going back to work until workers' compensation coverage is restored. It fined Jackson $69K for the lapse.

The agency also demanded that Jackson pay his staff at least $306K in back wages, by next week, and fined him $100K for failing to pay wages.

If Jackson fails to meet these demands, the agency "will pursue appropriate legal action".

It is reported that the agency is investigating 47 complaints from employees about unpaid wages.

Jackson will find that running away to Bahrain solves nothing, it is immature and foolish to pretend that problems will go simply go away.

Jermaine Denies Book Report

Jermaine Jackson, one of Michael Jackson's older brothers, appeared on Larry King Live and dismissed reports that he had planned to write a book exposing Michael's alleged addiction to drugs and penchant for small boys.

The book, "Legacy: Surviving The Best And The Worst", was allegedly touted by way of an eight page proposal in 2003.

Jermaine claims that Stacy Brown, author of "Michael Jackson: The Man Behind The Mask", faked the whole thing.

Needless to say, Brown is not taking this lying down and has said that he has Jermaine on tape.


"He'd be crying, spilling his guts, pouring his heart out for hours on end. I thought, 'Man, this is really deep.'

I've got Jermaine on tape, and the tapes are being turned over to attorney Mel Sachs

Brown is apparently planning to go public with tapes of conversations he had with Jermaine Jackson, as part of a "very aggressive" slander suit against Jermaine.


"The fact is I would not have written anything without the express consent of Jermaine Jackson and, in fact, you will see more than it on paper in the coming days; you will hear it on tape. Jermaine should be very careful about what he says.

(The tapes are) currently in the possession of, and being reviewed by, Mel Sachs. He and I have talked and we will be launching a very aggressive slander suit against Jermaine Jackson

Who's The Daddy?

It seems that the lineage of Michael Jackson's second son, Prince Michael II (or Blanket as he sometimes calls him), is being called into question by the media.

Reports state that Jackson chose an attractive woman, who resembled Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek, from a book of egg donors.

Jackson then allegedly found a sperm donor to fertilise her egg.

Seemingly, if the reports are to be believed, Jackson was playing God and trying his hand at creationism.

The Jackogate Tapes

Jeffrey Borer and Arvel Jett Reeves have pleaded guilty to secretly videotaping Michael Jackson, in November 2003, when he flew to Santa Barbara with his attorney Mark Geragos to surrender in the child-molestation investigation.

Borer and Reeves admitted by plea agreements that they installed two videorecorders, to record "a professional entertainer" and his lawyer November 2003.

They entered their plea to U.S. District Judge A. Howard Matz.

The federal prosecutors have agreed to dismiss two other charges, endeavouring to intercept oral communication and witness tampering.

They face up to five years in prison, and a fine of $250K.

Jermaine Puts The Boot In

One of Michael Jackson's brothers, Jermaine Jackson, has put the boot into Michael's well crafted image and doubtless ensured that Michael will never to talk to him again.

Jermaine submitted a book proposal in 2003, working title "Legacy: Surviving The Best and Worst", the details of which have now reached the media.

In the proposal, Jermaine says that he watched Michael fall into vicious rages as a result of him being high on a mixture of prescription drugs and drink.

Jermaine also questions Michael's behaviour around his own nephews.


"Does he really know what he does with these kids? I don't want to tell you my brother's innocent. I am not certain that he is.

Michael couldn't survive one day in prison he would commit suicide. He has a thing for young children

Jermaine states that the Jackson family has protected Michael's image, and that at the start of his career they thought that he was gay.


"But Michael, well, he wasn't interested. We used to quietly say that we couldn't have a gay brother."

Jermaine also notes that Michael cheats, lies and has changed the colour of his skin (I think everyone knew that).

Allegedly Michael's behaviour towards his own nephews left the Jackson family "shaken". Jermaine claims that he found Michael holding brother Tito's young sons in a disturbing manner in the mid-1990s, after their mother died.

According to Jermaine, Michael hates Jews; in Jackson's (if the proposal is to be believed) mind Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen stole the idea for Dreamworks studio, including the boy-on-the moon logo, from him.

In an unpleasant piece of anti semitism in the proposal, Jermaine says:

"The Jews are the powerful ones and they have done a lot to put my brother in his place ... just another n**ger."

The proposal, for good measure, then lists Michael's drugs of choice; Vicodin, Demerol, codeine and Percocet, cocaine, Jack Daniels and wine.

If the family really had worries about Michael's behaviour towards children, why did they not intervene to stop it worsening?
