The Jackson 5

A stash of unreleased Jackson 5 recordings may be released in the near future.

Richard Altomare, the head of luggage movement company Universal Express, bought a collection of unclaimed personal belongings from a New Jersey storage warehouse and discovered a set of tapes dating back to the 1970's. These tapes contained approximately 60 unreleased songs by The Jackson 5.

Altomare states that he is currently in talks with Michael Jackson, his sister Janet, and record labels including Sony in order to get the music released.


"I've personally talked to Michael and Janet on the phone about the tapes, and even played on a couple of songs for them.

At first there was silence on the other end of the line, but that was quickly followed by giggles as if it brought them back to the day those songs were recorded

Quite why these tapes were laying unclaimed for 30 years, or how they got there, is still not clear

Nona Loses Custody Battle

Nona Paris Lola Jackson has lost her custody battle for Michael Jackson's three children.

Judge Robert A. Schnider, in Los Angeles yesterday, denied Nona's request for custody.

Nona Paris Lola Jackson, based in London, had asked for joint physical custody of Prince Michael and Paris. She also claimed to be the mother of Prince Michael II.

Judge Schnider said:

"I feel her evidence fails to establish any genetic relationship between herself and the Jackson-Rowe children."

Schnider also denied Nona's request to nullify Jackson's marriages with his former wives Deborah Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley.

Nona Jackson claimed:

"Michael and I are a sexually active couple and have been this way from the beginning."

She also claimed to have written over 3,000 songs for him.

The woman's three previous attempts to interfere in the custody battle between Rowe and Jackson were rejected by Schnider last November, in February and in May on grounds that she had failed to notify Jackson and Rowe of the hearings.

It is unclear as to whether she will give up her claim.

Jackson Sued Again

Another day, another litigation.

Such is the daily grind for Michael Jackson, one time music superstar.

Jackson's former lawyers, Lavely & Singer, are suing him for $113,750 in unpaid legal fees.

They filed a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday. They claim that they set up a payment plan for Jackson to pay off his $180,000 debt, but that he failed to make the final payment.

Jackson To Be Sued By Prince

The words "Michael Jackson" and "sued" these days tend to be rather synonymous.

This time Jackson is being sued, as opposed to suing. His one time friend, Prince Abdullah of Bahrain, is taking Jackson to court.

Prince Abdullah took Jackson and his family in after the 2005 child molestation trial. Having looked after Jackson and entourage, the Prince wanted to start a record company with the King of Pop.

Various agreements were signed, then nothing happened. The Prince is now fed up with this inactivity and is suing Jackson to honour the agreement and to do some work, eg make a record.

The case is being brought in London.
