Skeletons in The Closet

It seems that the past may return to haunt Michael Jackson, in his forthcoming trial for alleged child molestation.

It is reported that Santa Barbara authorities have contacted the alleged victim, and witnesses, from the decade old child molestation case against Jackson; with a view to them testifying in the entertainer's upcoming trial.

Another Day, Another Lawsuit

I think I should rename this site "Michael Jackson's Trials", as it seems that yet another party has filed a suit against him.

Kamand Enterprise, an LA based antique store, filed a claim yesterday for $178K. This is in respect of a purchase of $US380K of furniture, made on the 8th of May 2004.

The purchased items included; a large mirror, a 13-branch candelabra, a pair of tall white marble and bronze centrepieces, a French silver bread holder and a silver tea and coffee set.

Allegedly Jackson only paid $US200K, and refuses to pay the balance.

This is the second lawsuit filed against Jackson in a week.

As already reported, Marc Schaffel is suing Jackson for more than $US3M for unpaid loans and other debts.

The Big Lie

It seems that Marc Schaffel's lawsuit, discussed on this site yesterday, has ruffled a few feathers in the Jackson camp.

Marc Schaffel is suing Michael Jackson for $3M, for unpaid debts and loans. Schaffel contends that Jackson is broke, and has used drink and drugs.

Needless to say Jackson's entourage dispute these claims. A spokesman for Jackson denied the "slanderous" claims, and questioned the timing of the lawsuit.

Jackson's representatives also said that Schaffel cannot be trusted, because he is a pornographer.

Now to put my two cents in here, I will make this small point.

The fact that Schaffel was involved in the porn industry, is neither here nor there. He is either telling the truth on this, or he isn't; his porn past is irrelevant to this lawsuit.

I would also point out that, if the porn past causes Jackson such "moral distress", why did he hire Schaffel in the first place?

Jackson knew that Schaffel had been in the porn industry, before he hired him.

Someone here is lying.

Debts, Debts and Debts

J. Marc Schaffel, a former producer and business associate of Michael Jackson, is suing Jackson for $3 million in loans and producing fees.

This case was reported on this site some time ago. However, more details have now come to light; as the suit was only filed yesterday.

The lawsuit highlights loans and payments made on Jackson's behalf, it also claims that Jackson did not fully pay Schaffel for his role in producing two television specials.

These specials were aired on Fox last year, and were meant to act as a rebuttal to the "infamous" Martin Bashir interviews.

It seems that Schaffel acts as some form of banker for Jackson; Schaffel claims to have made loans and payments on Jackson's behalf totaling $8.6M since 2001. Only $6.3M of these have been paid back; according to Schaffel.

Some of the payments made on behalf of Jackson, if true, seem a tad extravagant; given Jackson's dwindling financial resources.

$600K for an item of jewelry for Elizabeth Taylor, and $1M to pay Marlon Brando to appear in a video all seem unnecessary.

Seemingly the loans also include $1M for "emergency cash", in the event of a 9/11 disaster; whereby Jackson, and entourage, would have to shelter underground.

Word of advice, if we end up living like rats in the sewers, money will have little value.

Michael Jackson's Mind

British TV's Channel five showed an hour long documentary, last night, entitled Michael Jackson's Mind.

It featured associates, friends, detectives and psychologists who knew or were at least familiar with Jackson.

There were no "revelations" of any significance, most of the matters discussed are already in the public domain.

However, for fans of interior decoration, there were some shots of the inside of Neverland.

The documentary came up with the conclusion that if Jackson is convicted, it will be the end of his world.

Also, the overall opinion of the psychologists (both US and UK based) was that Jackson has a somewhat "troubled mind".

No surprises there then!

Relaxation Techniques

Michael Jackson is reported to have taken up yoga, in preparation for his forthcoming trial for alleged child molestation.

Not unreasonably, he is reported to be a tad nervous about the forthcoming court case. Therefore, he has sought solace in the ancient art of yoga.

Certainly far better than turning to drink or drugs!.
