It should come as no surprise to anyone that a person with as an "eccentric", for want of a better word, and public a lifestyle as Michael Jackson would attract a certain number of "oddballs".
Therefore the reports that a London woman has filed court papers in Los Angeles claiming that she is the mother of Michael Jackson's three children, are all par for the course.
Nona Paris Lola Jackson filed her papers last Friday, signing her name "dudu". The papers request that she be allowed to have a say in the child custody settlement that has been reached between Jackson and his ex-wife Debbie Rowe.
Nona Paris Lola Jackson claims to be a "black Jew born in Britain", and claims that both Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley, Jackson's other ex, never had sex with him.
Nona claims that she is the mother of Prince, Paris and Blanket.
The court papers quote her as saying:
"Michael and I are a sexually active couple and have been this way from the beginning."
She goes on to claim that she has written more than 3,000 songs for Jackson.
The hearing is scheduled for 29th November. That will be interesting!
