Neverland Raided Again

Police raided Michael Jackson's Neverland again yesterday.

The search lasted all day. However, the reasons for the search and what was taken were not revealed.

Jackson was reportedly at home, with his children, when the warrant was served. He remained in a guest cottage on the property throughout the day.

The last raid on Neverland was a year ago.

Lawyers outside of the case have speculated that the evidence being sought must be very important, for the judge to authorise a search so close to the trial.

The late search could result in the defence seeking a postponement of the trial.

Deputies searched the 2700 acre property for more than 8 hours yesterday. The media lined up outside along the fence outside of Neverland, but much of the search was focused on a complex of buildings that can't be seen from the road. The media also "buzzed" Neverland in helicopters, trying to get a better view.

It is reported that Michael Jackson's lawyers are trying to stockpile ammunition to fire at the credibility of the young accuser's mother, in Jackson's upcoming trial on child molestation and conspiracy charges.

This trial will get very nasty indeed.

It seems that the world is full of nuts, no real surprises there then!

A Canadian performance artist is facing charges in Germany, after a failed attempt to spray blood on a sculpture of Michael Jackson at an art exhibition there.

Istvan Kantor tried to squeeze a capsule of blood on the sculpture "Michael Jackson and Bubbles", by Paul McCarthy, at the Flick Collection show on Tuesday. However, he was stopped before he could do any damage to the statue.

He did manage to spray the blood on an empty wall of the Hamburger Bahnhof gallery. The sculpture, which depicts Jackson with his pet monkey, was undamaged.

Kantor, who is also known as Monty Cantsin, was arrested but police freed him on Wednesday. He will face charges of trespassing and damage to property.

Kantor, who was filmed throughout the incident by his own film crew, has been banned from many galleries around the world. However, he had been allowed inside the Berlin gallery because one of his own video installations is on show there.

The Flick Collection has already attracted controversy because its owner, "Mick" Flick is the grandson of Friedrich Flick, who built the family fortune by producing weapons for the Nazis and using slave labor.

Set Back for Jackson

Michael Jackson's defence team suffered a set back yesterday, when Judge Rodney Melville rejected their bid to bring in a psychologist.

The defence wanted to hire psychologists to examine the boy and family accusing Jackson of molestation.

Their rationale being that as the prosecution will be calling psychologists, so should they.

However, Melville was having none of that; and rejected the request out of hand, without taking any arguments or making any explanation.

London Visit Off

It seems that, despite the fact that Michael Jackson still has a loyal fan base in the UK, the pressure of the trial must be getting to him.

Michael Jackson's publicist, Raymone K. Bain, has confirmed there will be no visit to the UK in either November or December.

Britain Backing Jackson

Michael Jackson's career might be flagging the USA; however, in Britain he seems to have found a new lease of life.

The Sun, a popular British tabloid, reports that his album sales for 2004 have reached number 5 position in the rankings.
