Jackson Tours Italy

Michael Jackson has left Bahrain for an Italian vacation with his children.

Jackson was mobbed by fans in Florence and Venice, but has spent the last several days unnoticed in the Neapolitan Riviera resort of Sorrento.

Jackson was with an unidentified male, Paris, Prince Michael I and Prince Michael II.

They are staying in a Sorrento villa, owned by two society ladies.

Rowe Puts The Bite On Jackson

Michael Jackson's ex wife and mother of some of his children, Debbie Rowe, has changed her tune a bit since she appeared at his child molestation trial where she could say nothing but positive things about him.

Now Rowe wants some money out Jackson.

Lawyers for Rowe claim that he is $75K behind in paying her legal fees for their ongoing custody battle.

Jackson and Rowe have been fighting in Los Angeles family court for custody of Prince Michael and Paris; who currently live with Jackson and his third son in Bahrain.

The court had ordered Jackson to pay Rowe's legal team.

The next hearing the custody fight is scheduled for March the 17th.

Jackson and The Pope - Utter Bollocks!

It turns out that, according to both the Vatican and Michael Jackson's spokeswoman, the story about him recording some songs written by Pope John Paul II is utter bollocks.

Raymone Bain, Jackson's spokeswoman, said:

"Contrary to published reports in Italy, and the United States, Michael Jackson has not participated in any discussions with the Vatican or Edizioni Musicali Terzo Millennio, an Italian music label specializing in religious songs, to record music to Pope John Paul II's prayers."

She added:

"None of Mr. Jackson's authorized representatives have contacted either the Vatican or Edizioni Musicali Terzo Millennio, regarding this proposed project."

Bain said that Jackson had been contacted by the Vatican "about a year ago", about working on some music.


"Because he was in trial at the time, he was not able to focus on it."

The Vatican has said that it is unaware of any contact with Jackson.

I don't know, but it seems questionable to me that the Vatican would have contacted Jackson before the verdict in the trial had been decided.

Labour Dispute

Michael Jackson now finds himself at the centre of a wage dispute, with the workers who are still stationed at Neverland.

It seems that Jackson has forgotten to pay them.

The workers allege that they are owed six weeks' salary from Jackson, who has absented himself from reality again and taken up residence in Bahrain.

Neverland Chef Rudy Lozano claims that he has had to take on extra work at a fast-food stall, in order to make ends meet.


"A lot of people have been struggling to make ends meet.

There are 180 families with incomes depending on the ranch

It seems that wherever Jackson tries to run away to, reality just keeps coming back and biting him on the arse.

Jackson and the Pope

In what can only be described as a rather bizarre union, it is reported that there have been secret discussions between the Roman Catholic Church and Michael Jackson to put the prayers of Pope John Paul II to music.

Given the fact that both the church and Jackson have had a number of unsavoury allegations about child molestation lobbed at them, I would have thought that this union was rather unwise.

Pope John Paul, who died in April 2005, wrote 24 religious prayers and chants which the Church want to set to music.

Jackson is thought of as being the man for the job, because of his worldwide celebrity status.

Father Giuseppe Moscati of the Millennium Music Society, which specialises in church music and organises musical events at the Vatican, confirmed the details.

Fr Moscati said:

"We have the rights for the 24 prayers written by Pope John Paul.

We had hoped the fact that we have been in contact with Michael Jackson would remain a secret. But sadly it has leaked out ahead of time. We are in discussions and trying to sort it out

Fr Moscati, and indeed the Church, are being rather naive in thinking that something like this would remain secret. There is every incentive for many people, including Jackson himself, to leak the news.

Fr Moscati, speaking of Jackson's child molestation trial, said:

"He was cleared and found not guilty by a jury.

Michael Jackson is very interested in this project - we shall see what happens

Jackson had secretly flown to Venice to sign a contract. Unfortunately, news of his arrival leaked and so he fled the city and was thought to be on his way back to the United States.

A source in Venice said:

"We were all ready to put the deal to Michael Jackson but he was scared off when the news leaked out. As soon as he knew everyone was waiting for him and the project had been found out he disappeared. We don't know where he is now."

Needless to say, this "disappearance" will ensure that the story remains in the media longer than it may have otherwise done.

There is, after all, no such thing as bad publicity!
