Janet Not Speaking To Michael

Janet Jackson told Oprah Winfrey that she hasn't spoken with her brother, Michael, since he was acquitted of child molestation charges last year.

She said that the trial "took its toll on the entire family."

Jackson's Tapes Held

It seems that Michael Jackson's decision to split away from Bahrain's Two Seas Records, which he confounded, has not gone down very well with his ex founding partner Prince Abdullah of Bahrain.

Prince Abdullah has blocked the release of Jackson's much vaunted charity single, and is refusing to hand over the master tapes.

Seemingly the Prince has bankrolled Jackson to the tune of $3M, and is pissed off that Jackson has walked away (apparently due to the Prince's desire for more female voices on the record).

The question is, who will bankroll Jackson now?

Jackson Splits

Michael Jackson has split with the Bahrain based record label, Two Seas Records, only five months after signing on.

Jackson's spokeswoman, Raymone Bain, confirmed that Jackson is no longer affiliated with the label; even though he cofounded it only last April, and even though it was to be used as the vehicle for his comeback album.

Jackson formed Two Seas Records with Bahrain royal family member Abdulla Hamad Al-Khalifa. It had been planned that British music executive Guy Holmes would serve as CEO and oversee production on Jackson's new disc, which had been aiming for a 2007 release.

However, it is reported that the deal between Holmes and Jackson had never been formalised. Quite what Abdulla Hamad Al-Khalifa, who has tried to help Jackson, thinks of the split is not reported.

Needless to say, this volte face brings into question the likelihood of Jackson ever releasing his much vaunted Hurricane Katrina benefit single "From the Bottom of My Heart".

It seems that in order to keep himself in the public eye, and to appear to be busy, Jackson has formed the Michael Jackson Company to oversee his finances and to possibly become a record label.

Reality will eventually hit home, when the money runs out.

Jackson's Exile

The recently unsealed papers from Michael Jackson's ongoing custody battle with his former wife, Debbie Rowe, over their two children have revealed a warning from Jackson's lawyer, Thomas Hall:

"Even though he is absolutely innocent of any such charges, Michael may be subject to arrest, prosecution or an investigatory detention if he was to return to the United States."

Jackson currently resides in Bahrain, where he cannot be extradited from to the USA.

Basically, if Jackson returns to the USA, he is a marked man.

There are a string of conflicting stories swirling around the media at the moment, concerning Michael Jackson.

No surprise there then.

These ones concern Jackson's reported desire to open a 500 million Euro theme park in Ireland, populated by leprechauns.

A spokesman for Jackson has retorted that the stories are "erroneous and ridiculous".

At least the stories have given Jackson, who seems to have given up creating music, some publicity.
