New Album?

It is reported that Michael Jackson, in between court cases, has found some time in his trial schedule to try to work on a new album.

Allegedly he is working with Will. I. Am of the Black Eyed Peas, in Ireland.

In the event that this work produces something of substance, a new album might be released in 2007.

We shall see.

By the way, whatever happened to the album for the victims of Katrina that was hyped so much by Jackson last year?

Jackson Sues...Again!

Seemingly, instead of writing music, Michael Jackson's new occupation is that of "professional litigant".

Jackson has now decided to sue his former lawyers for conspiring to force him into bankruptcy.

Jackson has accused Los Angeles law firm Ayscough and Marar of conspiring with other lawyers, who represented him in the past, to force him into involuntary bankruptcy.

Jackson also cited claims that his former lawyer, Brent Ayscough, threatened to leak confidential information about him to the press, broke rules of professional conduct and committed acts of negligence and malpractice.

Earlier this year, Ayscough sued Jackson for $216K he claimed that he was owed in unpaid fees.

Jackson is also busy with a $48M lawsuit brought by Darien Dash, the cousin of Damon Dash. Dash claims he has Jackson's signature on a document promising to pay him a 9% fee for arranging financing for a $275M loan in 2004, which is held by Fortress Investments.

Clearly Jackson will have some trouble finding the time to write any more music in the coming months.

The Bush Interview

Billy Bush conducted an "interview" with Michael Jackson, when he was in Dublin.

Those of you expecting insight and probing questions into Jackson's life, will be very disappointed. Bush has allowed Jackson to dictate the terms of the "interview" (Jackson in fact stated that he didn't want an interview), and has used it for some low level PR for his theoretical "comeback".

The "interview" can be accessed via this link Bush.

The Price of Motherhood

Debbie Row, Michael Jackson's ex wife, has given up all visitation rights to their two children.

Rowe had originally filed for visitation rights and custody of Prince Michael and Paris. However, in exchange for an annual payment of £395K, she has relinquished her parental rights.

Can Jackson afford that?

Evidently Rowe cannot be feeling that maternal towards her children.
