Foreman Cashes In

Paul Rodriguez, the jury foreman during Michael Jackson's molestation trial, is cashing in on his 5 seconds of fame by writing a book with Fox News' Aphrodite Jones.


Surely this calls into question the impartiality and motivation of the jury, if they are allowed to make money out of their work?

Jackson Went To Hospital

Tom Mesereau, Michael Jackson's lawyer, has given an interview to the BBC; in which he said that Jackson had to go to hospital, after the trial, to be treated for weight loss and dehydration.


"Michael Jackson was ill from time to time. In fact, people didn't realize he actually entered the hospital after the verdict..He was dehydrated, he had lost a tremendous amount of weight, he was having trouble keeping food down, he was terrified about what was going happen to his children and he had a recurring back problem,".

Mesereau said that Jackson would not settle out of court if further allegations were made against him.

"I am concerned because he is a perpetual target. There still is a perception among some people that he ... doesn't want to go to court and will settle,...We will be fighting any of these suits all the way if they happen."

Mesereau said that he hoped that nobody in the future would live in Jackson's home to spend the night to avoid future false claims.

"I advised Mr Jackson not to let any families in his home again,".

More Lawsuits

Michael Jackson may need to recover his strength, from his recent trial, sooner rather than later.

Fox reports that he faces four separate law suits in four separate cities.

Joe Jackson Deludes Himself

It seems that Michael Jackson's father, Joe, ever keen to milk his son's fame for every cent has been talking to the Berlin press.

He told Germany's Bild paper that Michael wants to move to Berlin.

This inevitably led to headlines in some German papers saying:

"Michael Jackson is going to become a Berliner!"

They even said that Joe was looking for a house for Michael.

Given the birthday party debacle, I will believe it when I see it.

Sad Party

By all accounts Joe Jackson's 76th birthday bash, in Berlin last Friday, was not a resounding success.

Son Michael did not turn up, instead guests were treated to video clips of him.

Nobody danced and the fans were quiet; in fact the venue appeared to be half empty.

Michael Jackson is reported to be recovering from the trial at a resort in Dubai.

In a pathetic twist, a Michael Jackson double wished Joe "Happy Birthday" from the stage.

Joe Jackson summed it by saying

"The show must go on".
