LKL WEB EXCLUSIVE: "Paris Was Screaming 'Daddy, Daddy'"

Posted: 08:28 PM ET

Celebrity chef Kai Chase was Michael Jackson's personal chef at the time of his death.  She was working in his home the day he died.  Below are her chilling memories of the events that day.  Kai will be Larry's guest Thursday night.

The Jackson home was a very loving environment.  I worked there on and off since March as Mr. Jackson's personal chef.  In that time, I got to know the kids well.  We bonded immediately.  They are wonderful children - loving, giving, caring and very close as siblings go.  You would never know their dad was one of the most famous people on Earth.  Paris-Prince-Funeral

Mr. Jackson was a great father.  He was lenient in the evenings.  He loved to let them stay up late, watch movies, and eat popcorn at night; but the days were fairly regimented.  There was time set aside for study, theater and dance.  The house was always filled with games, laughter and music.  This makes what happened on June 25th all the more difficult.

The day of Mr. Jackson's death, I didn't see him.  But his room was upstairs, so that wasn't unusual.  Dr. Conrad Murray had been coming over daily since I returned to the Jackson house in the beginning of June.  He would normally arrive around 9 a.m. and leave shortly after lunch.  I didn't really know him well, but everyone in the house was friendly with each other, and he was no exception.

Dr. Murray usually came down to the kitchen around 10 a.m. to get Mr. Jackson something to eat or drink, but on June 25th he didn't come downstairs.  Again, this didn't strike me as that unusual - I thought maybe Mr. Jackson's rehearsal time had been pushed back and he was sleeping late.

I went on with my daily routine, and started preparing lunch.  Mr. Jackson and the kids would usually have lunch around 12:30, but that was flexible depending on what was going on that day.  Much has been made of Mr. Jackson's eating habits and weight prior to his death.  He seemed to have normal eating habits to me.

At noon on June 25th, I remember looking at my cell phone to check the time.  About 5 or 10 minutes after I did that, Dr. Murray came running halfway down the stairs that led to the kitchen, screaming "Hurry, get Prince, get security."  Clearly, something was very wrong.

I instantly felt the energy in the house change.  It was normally a warm, happy home.  In an instant that feeling was gone.  The mood became very unsettling.  I tried to continue with my lunch preparations, but the house became chaotic.  Security guards were rushing by, the housekeepers were crying, Paris was screaming "Daddy, Daddy."  The children knew something was very wrong.  This was their father - the only person they have in the world.  We weren't told what was going on, but you could feel things were very bad.  We eventually gathered everyone together in a circle - the three kids, all the staff - and we prayed.  "God, please let everything be O.K. with Mr. Jackson."

Around 1:15 or 1:30p.m security told all the employees to leave the house.  We asked if Mr. Jackson was all right, and were just told he had been taken to the hospital.  We still didn't know what was happening, but the sight of a stretcher in the foyer of the house earlier told me things were not good.  Still, I didn't learn of Mr. Jackson's death until later that day on the radio.

It was a devastating day, and one I will never forget.

This was a sad for those children. I feel so bad for them. It must be hard.
I cried when Paris gave that emotional speech but she showed encouragement and a side of Michael as a father– as their father.

Dirty Diana   July 29th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

I thought I read somewhere that murray only came at night around 9pm and left in the morning?

Chris McDonald (from Jamaica)   July 29th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

I Still Feel ing it for Michael's Kids, & Believe You Me, I Just Can't Stop, Paris, I Love You To & I Can Feel It For Your Dad (MJ), It Broke My Heart To See You Crying When Spoken On The Microphone, The Whole World Is Crying With You, We Love You!

Luda   July 29th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

It seems there were alot of witness that day but nobody saw the same thing.....

NINA YIRDAW   July 29th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

This is a very sad story. I got goosebumps while reading this blog. I couldn't even stop crying. What a terrible story to hear. God be with you little Paris, Prince I, and Prince II. My heart goes out to you all. God do things for reason. Now God wants to give break for Michael from this world and take over you guys. He will always send his guardian angels to protect you. I can't believe we don't get to see Michael anymore. WE ALL LOVE YOU MICHAEL J........ R.I.P dear!!!!

Honorine   July 29th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

We think we've seen it all or are coming to a close. Many more stories and versions still to come. Once evrybody starts talking, hhmmmm

Jeannie Enright   July 29th, 2009 8:50 pm ET

Michael Jackson Comment:

I can not believe that Katherine Jackson is not happy with 40% of the estate. I think she wants more money for JOE JACKSON and the JEHOVAH WITNESSES. I know that Michael would not want his kids to be Jehovah Witnesses ( with no birthday parties or Christmas celebrations).

Dirty Diana–As far Dr. Murray's hours==The media was speculating as usual–Those poor kids–I'm glad she's coming out saying these nice things about MJ.

Chris McDonald (from Jamaica)   July 29th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

I Still Feel It For Michael's Kids, & Believe Me, I Just Can't Stop,
Paris, I Know The Whole World Is Crying With You after what you Said On The Microphone, It breaks my heart to see you crying like this, I Love You Paris.

LindafromNewYork   July 29th, 2009 8:54 pm ET

Oh my god, My heart breaks for those kids. God Bless you. Prince, Paris and Blanket. Your Daddy loved you so much. He didn't leave you because he wanted to; he was taken away from you.

Suzie   July 29th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

Larry, I'm going to make a suggestion that I think many of us Michael fans would really appreciate: how about one LKL show that focuses entirely on the great artist that Michael was: his music, his dance moves, his contributions to pop culture. Let's just get away from the negative stuff: the addictions, the accusations etc... etc.... there is so, so, so much to say about his greatness as an artist. Many consider him the greatest entertainer that ever lived. Please let's focus on this aspect of his life, just once. It'll make many of us happy, and it'll be a widely watched LKL. Deal Larry? 🙂

Cocovelvet   July 29th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

Dirty Diana,

Thats exactly what I also learned, that this Murray was usually comimg to MJ'S house in the evenings and leaving in the mornings, probably to take care of MJ when he came back from his rehersals.

Anyway, these are just some of these stories coming from such people as this Chef to try and cover up Murray.


jeanie krimm   July 29th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

Oh My God!!!So very heartbreaking.Paris, Prince and Blanket, I love you 3 as if you were my own. Be Strong for your daddy because i'm sure that's what he would be. God Bless You

renee jacobs   July 29th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

Dear Larry.....How are you?????? OK, has anybody noticed that in Michael Jacksons' last video, he had multi layers of clothing on, to appear healthy....and he didn't, ........when you factor in the layers.issue...............why a single soul has not noticed this???????????.I don't know, my single soul did..........................thank you

Yazmeen   July 29th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

*************MESSAGE TO DEEPAK************

You again! God knows what PRIVATE conversation you'll speak of now! You seem to seek every opportunity for publicity, SHOW SOME RESPECT AND INTEGRITY YOU PREACH OF & STOP REVEALING PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS! Do you think Michael would have appreciated that! Look at Miko & TAKE NOTES! I LOST ALL RESPECT FOR YOU FOR AWHILE NOW!

"Dr. Murray usually came down to the kitchen around 10 a.m. to get Mr. Jackson something to eat or drink, but on June 25th he didn’t"


Chester Diaz   July 29th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

My heart was badly broken when Paris Katherine Jackson that her father passed away too early. I always pray for the MJs children to be strong, never lose hope. God bless, Larry King and to your show. To God be the glory!

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Larry Elder is right. In fact we all have felt the cops have stopped us unfairly at one time or another.

Let's remember that Gates was the only one throwing accusations of racism around. He even attacked Ms. Whalen by referring to her as a "white woman." He should have kept his big mouth shut about her!

Dreama   July 29th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Wow. Another side to the story.

I know just what those children are feeling having lost my dad 4 years ago. You never really get over that kind of loss, but you do grow from it and it changes you, it really does change who you are to very core of your being. Only you can decide HOW it changes you.

You kids are in my prayers daily.

Larry, in addition to the comment about doing a show all on MJ's contributions; I'd like to include some type of memorial strictly from the fans. How about something from every day folks like us here on the blog? Read our posts, interview us; allow us our goodbyes.

Julie   July 29th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Larry, why are you picking a side? Aren't you suppose to stay neutral?

Julie   July 29th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

stop spewing your hate!

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

If someone had been really robbing Gates' house and they had delayed the way Judge Brown is suggesting, the black community would have been in an uproar. Gates and his followers just want to make something racial out of this. He has the same prejudiced mindset as Wright, another one of Obama's friends.

Dyson has always been a race baiter, I don't respect anything he has to say.

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Why doesn't Larry control Dyson? He is rude and obnoxious!

Judy   July 29th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

i think that I've read this article before...

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

No one acted more stupidly than Obama did.

Jr   July 29th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

I am a white professioanl and was pulled over in LA several years ago after a long trip from Mammoth by an Asian cop and a white cop... they instantly placed me in hand cuffs stating that my car was stolen although it was at my friends house for a week in Malibu – all documents match ownership and they still held me for 30 minutes up against a fence. I screamed an yelled and it got me nowhere... I do realize these guys are in danger every day... I thank them... I feel that too many off these stories Mr.Dyson speaks of are brought on by bad behavior and are are oversensative and looking for a situation to occur. If you seek it, it will find you.

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

@Julie, When it comes to racial issues CNN always takes the minority side. Haven't you noticed?

Yazmeen   July 29th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

LARRY could you please ask Kai Chase tomorrow

"Much has been made of Mr. Jackson’s eating habits & weight prior to his death"


Barbara Hutchinson   July 29th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Professor Gates was on his property. The police had no right to arrest him on his property. Any criminal lawyer will tell you that these charges were bogus. Even if Gates was outrageous, he could not be arrested on his property. Sgt. Crowley was out of line. Whether it was race or not, he was out of line, which is why the charges were dropped.


Kathryn Gadson   July 29th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

The police acted srupidly. Sgt. Crowley acted against the constitution and is guilty of racial profiling.

Lora   July 29th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I am so happy to hear a black man speak out against one's actions without making it a racial issue. Larry Elder spoke with more common sense tonight than any of the other guests!! I get so sick and tired of people trying to make race an issue with everything that happens.

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Jeannie Enright

What she is doing, is trying to get to the bottom of what happened to her son. Joe and being a JW has nothing to do with anything.

Winston West   July 29th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

I am not sure if race was the original intent, what i am100% positive of Gates saw a black man in a middle class neighborhood house and that was enough to set him off.

gretchen wellington   July 29th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

I want to know if Ben Stein and Larry Elders have ever watched an episode of "Cops"? Because if they have, they would know that white people curse the police out on a regular basis and do not get arrested for it. they are told by the Police to "Please calm down Sir." As opposed to the way they respond when a Black person curses at them. the Blacks are arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct or Obstruction of Governmental Administration. Basically bogus charges!! It happens on a regular basis. And yes..... I have worked in the criminal justice field for 17 years. Racial profiling and bias is very rampant in the criminal justice system, and it makes the good cops job that much harder to do.

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

The problem is is that it is always the non-blacks who have to make the concessions and take the blame. I, for one, am fed up with it!

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Jo Ann, Ohio

Then why dont you go watch Bill O'Reilly program they never take the minority side on that program.

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Gates is a Harvard professor? Since when does a well educated, respected professor use the words "yo mama?"

I think there are some affirmative action issues here.

Audrey Miller   July 29th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Larry I am so sick of racial profiling with this proffesor. I live in Canada
and we dont hear much of this,Dont blame the police they are doing there job

Tricia   July 29th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I am impressed with Larry Elder. He is speaking in a rational way. Yes, it's unfortunate that this situation escalated for the owner. I'm disappointed that a professor, an educated man, can not see the officer was doing his job. Obama should have stayed out of this. should have been coffee. Larry King you are cutting Mr. Elder short compared to your other guests tonight. There was a black officer at the scene who did not stop the decision to arrest him...therefore it was not racist! Many persons getting off the subject onto history. Stick to the evidence that occured that day.

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Because of people like Dyson nothing will change between the races.

Why did Larry allow Dyson to talk over everyone and control this conversation?

Larry did a terrible job today!

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

@Jacquelyn, Because I don't like Bill O'Reilly that's why. I have the same right to be on here as you do. If you don't like my comments, don't read them.

Pati Smith   July 29th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Isn't it racial profiling to talk about "white police" as if they are all the same and all the enemy? Why does the black population expect for everyone to walk on eggs when dealing with them? They need to get over this presecution complex; its getting old. And phony.

Heidi   July 29th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I have questions for any doctors out there:

1. If the room was very hot would that mess with the time of death.
2. How could he leave Michael all night, we saw on 360 last night you can go into distress instantly who was monitoring him.
3. Why would he call for a 12 year old why didn’t he call fre security instead.

This is so very sad we lost one of the great entertainers of all time – because the doctor was stupid.

Wendy, Ontario, Canada   July 29th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Another employee looking for 15 minutes of fame. It's amazing that so many that worked for MJ knew about the drug use & suspicious activity but never said a word to anyone. They cared more about a pay check then anything else & now all they care about is selling their story to make more money. Sad that so many including MJ's own family are selling info. about a dead man.

Lynn   July 29th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Dirty Diana,

I read the same thing about the time. The article above says comes at 9A and leaves at noon. I know I read in the other article from the chef (I think TMZ website) that he came in the evening and would stay all night. She would see him bring O2 tanks down in the mornings. Is that a typo up above??

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

@Lora, Larry Elder is a decent, well-educated individual with common sense, not a race baiter like Dyson.

Mara   July 29th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Who cares.
Larry please get back to updates and finding all of MJ's killers.

Phillip   July 29th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Larry, This whole racial thing is geting so out of hand already.
If the blacks, hispanics, nataive americans, etc. would keep their mouths shut there wouldn't be such a thing as racism. You don't hear the Germans, French, Norwegans, Italians, Polish, etc. caucasin people screem racsim when something dosen't go the way they want it.

HELEN   July 29th, 2009 9:34 pm ET


Why has there been no mention of the false statements on the police report, which said the caller said the 2 men were black? She should be angry with the police for false statements as revealed on her 911 tapes, where she says" I don't know the race" and I didn't hear her mention backpacks.

Greg   July 29th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

That kid looks just like MJ anfter all MJ's surguries. Give me a break

TSAF   July 29th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

My God, I was actually taking Joe Jackson's side about how the press was crucifying him about his childhood disciplinary actions but after watching his current statement about Omer Bhatti after the boy already stated that he is not Michael's son and it has been proven several years ago in European and Asia with American media being several years behind this issue, I must say that he is a freaking azz ole. What is he doing and what is he trying to accomplish by spreading lies? This is a new low for Joe ... how much did they pay him to lie?

Yazmeen   July 29th, 2009 9:35 pm ET



I am sick of seeing his face!

Bthomp   July 29th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

The officer wrote in the report that this woman said she saw black men with back packs which was first reported and documented in the police report. So here she is crying because she was falsely accused of being a racist. Based on what the officer said and documented in the police report.

JC   July 29th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I can't decide who spews/spins more diatribe............Larry King or Nancy Grace.

Both have become pathetic bucket mouths.

Benigna Marko   July 29th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I heard that the medication should not have be given by a doctor but shoudl have been given by an anistiologist. Why on earth would this doctor do that! This is such a sad unraveling of the truth. It is only getting worst. I only pray for the family and MJ's children.

gloria   July 29th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Too sad that the general public only see what the media wants them to see... this game is all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and the powers that be will have their way and MJ will end up being the scapegoat once again..... my bet is that MJ will have a "cocktail" of drugs in his system and poor Dr. Feelgood (Murray) will ge off scott-free as will the other Dr's because the men with the $$$$$$$$$$ will have paid off everyone to say "what they want the public to know"..... we WILL NEVER KNOW THE REAL STORY here... why don't we know what the paramedics REALLY found when they entered the house, why has no one interviewed them on national tv????? WHY is the media spinning all of these "rumors" when they have the same access to the people involved as do the investigators???? why does the media accept this c**p??? because of the $$$$ involved? why isn't the truth ... truth anymore but rather just perception???? You all make me's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ .... none of you are truth sayers.... you, like the majority of people in this world don't care about anything (truth) ...other than the almighty dollar..... it is a sad world that we are living in today!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope that MJ can find peace.... the rest of this c**p is incidental..... too bad for all the gullibles in the world today....

austin   July 29th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

if I were a thief I would make up an ID saying that I live in a house that I want to rob an if the cops came I would show them my ID.If this was your house and some one called the cops about a possible break in would you think the cops acted correctly if they left me alone and went away.

Pam   July 29th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Please stop picking on Joe Jackson. Everytime he says something you call it strange. This is really an insult to fans of the Jacksons. Joe is the person responsible for their success. His brilliance was the reason for their fame. He wanted a better life for his kids. He did not want them to struggle the way that he had to. Look at their success. Do you think his family is calling him strange? Give him a break!!

Julie   July 29th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Poor Michael, laying on a cold slab somewhere, bury him already!!

Audrey Bailey   July 29th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Larry, I don't believe Professor Gates's arrest started out as race but it turned racial in the in the press, I think it was the approach of the officer, MR. Gates , was just coming off a long trip, tired, hungary, jet-legged,sick and old, his door was jammed and when he gets in here come the police instead of telling MR. Gates why he was there he demanded he come out of his house and naturally Mr. Gates got upset, also Mr. Crowley said the caller said there were two black men with back packs, that was untrue, she never said any thing about race until she was asked and she then said she didn't know however once Officer Crowley found out Mr. Gates was the owner he then should have asked him to step outside and let him check the house for intruders, Larry if Officer Crowley teaches racial divide than he himself needs a refresher course, now I'm not saying he is racist that I don't know. OH and LARRY ELDER he is a GISGRACE to the HUMAN RACE!

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Tricia, I agree with you 100%!

I don't know enough about Mass. law to say if what the police did was by the book, but the way Gates acted and what he said, especially in regards to Ms. Whalen, was outrageous and unbecoming an academic.

I don't think Crowley should meet with Gates or Obama. He should stay clear of both of those race baiters!

Fred Smith   July 29th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

As in any death of a famous person much is made of the death of Michael Jackson and the unusual circumstances that have followed his passing. This will be fodder for many years of speculation and rhetoric!!!

Julie   July 29th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Can you dance to the song Demerol?

Elaine Hayes   July 29th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Gates Issue
Why doesn't anyone say anything about the fact that the officer misreported what the caller said? Why? Why? Why? If he is supposed to be someone who teaches how to handle difficult situations. He did not handle this one correctly. The Prof. Gates was in his own house.
Tell the truth Ofr Crowley, you got mad because a black man was uncooperative, you overreacted, as did Prof. Gates but he was returning from a long and I'm sure tiring trip.

TSAF   July 29th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Kai Chase, put a little extra spin on her story. It sounds like a damn chapter in a novel. I strongly want to believe it but it sounds very spin. I wonder if she will be promoting her book tomorrow on Larry King that she claimed that Michael encouraged her to write. Wow, I can't stand these people who are speaking out for their own 15mins of fame. Where is Janet? At least she has some family dignity for her brother not to speak out to the press. I've always loved Michael and Janet at least they have some dignity to stay out of the press, the rest of them is just using the press as an opportunity to promote themselves while Mikey is gone, raking in the cash.

Pamela Byrd   July 29th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

This whole thing is very sad an very unfortunate. Such a talented man died too soon. May God bless his children and his family.

Marilyn Ferguson   July 29th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

I was outraged this evening when Larry was talking to a panel concerning the Skip Gates incident. Specifically, he was so rude to Larry Elder. He was mean spirited and not even close to being objective. Mr. Elder was a guest on the program and Mr. King should have given him some respect. I agreed with everthing Mr. Elder said when I could hear him since Mr. King kept talking over him and scolding him. President Obama was way out of line in making his comment about the Cambridge Police acting stupidly.......

Jo Ann, Ohio   July 29th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

I wonder if Larry is going to allow Coulter to speak at all? CNN always kisses Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton's butt!

Linda Butler   July 29th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Hi Larry,
I love your show. The Gates controversy will not go away because racial profiling has not gone away. A few years back I stood in the bar door of my mothers house. A police officer was at our house for some reason. I got sassy with him and he flirted back at me. In less than a minute, he had pulled up my drivers license information from the computer in his police cruiser. Yes, he flirted with me knowing my full name!
The Cambridge officer is supposedly experienced...etc. I have no doubt that before he entered that residence he knew how professor Gates looked and probably where he worked before he even entered that residence. Why don't you report to the people what a officer learns about us from his police cruiser.
I have two African American sons. I taught them from a very early age to show their IDs whenever an Police Officer request it. As a mother, I know Gates identified himself too. Somebody acted stupidly.
I know and you know that an officer knows who they got before they even left that house. I know and many African Americans know that they knew who Professor Gates was before they left that scene. It is very scarry in that none of the other officers did not pull the arresting officer to the side and say "Hey man, let's just get out of here" The scarry thing is they "all" went along with upsetting and humiliating a prominant African American citizen in a prominant upbeat community.
In my heart, I know this experienced officer knew exactly who he had but chose to drag him in the dirt a bit. What Gates told us is for all of his achievements he found how vulnerable he was. All of us black folks knew exactly what he meant....even President Obama!

Rosalie   July 29th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Please continue having depok chopra on your show. He is one of the few people who truly loved and understood MJ. He is also honest.

Dirty Diana   July 29th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Exactly my point. I read the samething. It looks worse for Murray if he comes at night thn leaves in the morning because that would appear his main job was to give michael diprivan to sleep and then wake him up in the morning. Why would a doctor come each night? Only for one reason.

M.Jenks   July 29th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

What a horrifying day that had to be for them! I can relate, I only have my mom. If anything happened to her, I have no clue what I would do. I really hope they get to stay with the Jackson family, if I had to live with my father, I'd die. I've only seen the man twice and I'm 17.

Julie: It's called Morphine, and why would you want to. I heard that song a long time ago and it freaked me out. It made it hard for me to sleep after Michael died. It just played over and over o_o

Rosalie   July 29th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

No debate is necessary! Any doctor who would administer diprivan in a person's home is unethical and it is criminal! This doctor knew better!

Steve Ragland   July 29th, 2009 9:52 pm ET


In regard to the Gates issue. Has anyone ever called your home phone by mistake? After realizing that the person they are looking for is not at this number they probably excused themselves and hung up. Did you curse them out for calling you?

If a person knocks on your door and has the wrong address I assume that you would correct them, (They might ask if you know where the person they are looking for lives but ultimately they would probably excuse themselves for bothering you and leave).

In either event if you were to curse the person out for calling you or knocking on the door regardless of their mistaken intrusion you would have then offended them unnecessarily. It would not matter that you just worked a double or have jet lag from a long trip because you have turned this into a personal attack.

I'm not saying the Officer or Mr. Gates was completely right or wrong but I agree that they should have both acted responsibly and they should both apologize but pride goes before the fall.

The simple fact is that the officer DID HIS JOB up to the point where Mr. Gates gave him proper identification,

The officers JOB WAS DONE when he received that information and that should have been the end of it instead of bringing this man out of his home and arresting him. Because of the Officers training and being held to a higher standard of controlling his own emotions and thought process he did handle the situation stupidly. By that I mean, we would not be discussing this on your blog, it would not be national news nor the source of renewed distrust, which already exist between the African American community and the police force if the Officer had handled the matter with more control.

While it is true that officers risk their lives everyday, at some point it was very clear to the officer that Mr. Gates did not pose a threat based on his size. What was he going to do torment the officer with theories and essays?

If I mis-spelled any words it is because I'm trying to get this in before the rest of America chimes in. Thanks for reading my two cents worth.

Dirty Diana,

Thats right I think it was pretty much his reason for being there. I really hope that he is able to be held responsibe for this actions,the things he did and didn't do are WAY BEYOND just being negligent.

kelley   July 29th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

I would like to know how ms. clark feels about OJ in jail. Finally

kenny   July 29th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

a colonoscopy or any time diprivan is used there is at least one nurse with the doctor. a doctor cannot do an edoscopic procedure with anesthesia by doubt that is a fact

donna   July 29th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Michael Jackson was & will always be the king of pop. Mr. Murray is not a doctor. A real doctor would have not done what he did to Michael Jackson without being in a hospital setting. He needs to go to jail. You cant use that drug in a home setting. I have been a fan of Michael Jackson since I am 10 years old. I went to see his concert in 1984 & was a few rows from the stage. I used my whole paycheck at the time to purchase those two tickets. I remember my mom yelling at me that I was getting married the following month & how can I have used my whole pay to get two tickets to go see him. That was 25 years ago & am so happy that I got to see him. Another time he was filming his video in a train station in brooklyn. I woke my husband up & we went to see him & waited two hours for him just to walk past us. My husband loved him too...There will never be another Michael Jackson. I am so sad that he is gone. I hope his Mom & family & children are doing okay. My heart goes out to all of them.

M.Jenks   July 29th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Um, I might be blind or something but Omer definately does NOT look anything like anyone in the Jackson family. I don't even know who to trust in this entire thing. Not Joe, oh God, not Joe. And the rest of the family that's spoken contradicts eachother entirely too much for me... Ah, if only Janet or Mrs. Katherine would speak. I'd also love to hear the kids talk more about Michael, but that probably won't happen anytime soon.

austin   July 29th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Larry like I said what if next time its a thief with fake ID should it still be over and would the cop be right to leave if the thief robbed the house after the cop left?

tracy   July 29th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

if it was not this docter then it would of been someone else, maybe not this outcome .its a shame michael has gone,

carol kesling   July 29th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

it is so sad that michael is dead,just does not seem real yet !!!!!!!!!!!!! larry could you PLEASE not interrupt your guests... when they are trying to answer you CUT THEM OFF !!!!!!!! i would like to hear the please be kind and let them finish....thank you, carol

ROSE   July 29th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

I am so sad and so sick about what has happened here.Do you know what it is like to find your father or any family member dead from anything??These are children that were in the house. My GOD these poor children what they must be going threw..It si such a sad cituation.It breaks my heart.

As far as this DR he should be found accoutable for Michael Jacksons death becasue no one can tell me that he did not know every drug Micahel was taken. The pharmacy must have new also how much drugs he was taken. But noone cared becasue they were making so much money from Michael that they were all greedy greedy people. They should be PUNISHED to the fullest exstent of the law..
They all forgot Micahel Jackon is a human being not just a money machine. I hope to GOD they go afte rthem all..

Correction please, this personal chef of MJ will be at LKL tomorrow night ,not tonight.

M.Jenks   July 29th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Diane, you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. He couldn't possibly bleach his skin to that degree. That'd be obvious if you knew anything about the issue. As for the other stuff you said... grow the hell up.

Rosalie   July 29th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

MJ was not a medical professional. He was an entertainer. Dr Murray was a licensed physician and he is responsible for the drugs he administered or prescibed to Mj. He needs to go to jail. He is adrug pusher and he did it for the MONEY!

Troy   July 29th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

This is so very SAD....I pray for the children.

Beth   July 29th, 2009 10:02 pm ET


In the beginning, it was said that Dr. Murray ran down to the kitchen to get the chef to make the call to 911, and that was who made the emergency call.

NOW it seems that the chef is a FEMALE.

The person who made that emergency call was a MALE!

So, ????

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 10:02 pm ET


You're right. That's what I will do for now on.

Eileen   July 29th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Vern, Canada   July 29th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

I wish the media and their pundits woul let MJ rest in peace.
Instead they dig out every worm, every snake, every backstabbing idiots they can find, Every so call friends and associates spewing garbage, Friends help friends they dont sit and watch and didnt do any thing to help My God he's dead LEAVE HIM ALONE. MJ's kid GOD be with you all and MJ'S family.

Lynn   July 29th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

What gets me even more than the fact that he was putting him to sleep with an inappropriate method in an inappropriate environment is the way it was gone about. Its like the Dr could have cared less if he lived or died!!

Why didn't he at least have the right equipment around?? Its not like MJ couldn't afford it?? Had the Dr AT LEAST requested he get the type of monitoring equipment necessary.

EKG machine, Oxygen saturation machine, end tital CO2 monitor, and emergency equipment. Meds, and defibrilator.

Had he had these monitors on and Murray fell asleep, at least the equipment alarms would have woke him right up.

EO, San Diego   July 29th, 2009 10:04 pm ET


The chef isn't the one who called 911.. it was security guard Alberto Alvaraz. Two different people.

Beth   July 29th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

And, wasn't it Dr. Murray's lawyer who said that Dr. Murray got the chef to make that emergency call?

Doesn't match up!


Lynn   July 29th, 2009 10:06 pm ET


Mabye its because he WAS A GOOD DAD if you bothered to do your homework you would know that!!

Rosalie   July 29th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Dr Murray should never be allowed to practice medicine again. Depok Chopra is a good man and had MJ's best interest at heart. Please have more guests like Depok Chopra. Dr Murray needs to go to jail. He should not be administering diprivan to Michael Jackson or anyone else!!! He should be in jail -

Janice Grant   July 29th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

ALL the people who did not go throught the Civil Rights era need to read and learn the true history. Was the policemasn trained in dealing with older, senior people of color? Yes, it still stings when ordered by the police of ANY color, but especialy those of the lighter brown color.There are NO white, red, black, or yellow people. ALL people are of ONE race, HUMAN. ONE color BROWN. ALL from the same two parents, Adam and Eve. All of ONE blood. Larry Elkder, Michael Steele are seemingly envious of President Obama and seem to think they should be in the White House. They are not of the same mind or intelligence as President Barack Obama. They always take the negative side. I am tired of them .
Stop giving them appearances, it is a waste and annoying.

Ann   July 29th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

To Diane-

You obviously DO NOT READ NOR KNOW AN OUNCE ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON. How in name of god do you know that he wasn't proud to be Black???
Are you degrading him because he had skin diseases (vitiligo and lupus) and who are you to judge how good a father he was? Were you with him 24/7 to see how he and his kids interact? Are you anyone of his children???? How do you know they don't have a life? You infuriated anyone who knew what sort of person he was. If you are so tired of hearing and READING about Michael get out the page! Why are you clicking and reading it for god sake?
You contrive him to be some kind of damn demon that is not worthy of talking about? People will perpetually care for him and mourn his death so why don't you remove yourself from this page and degrade someone who should be degrade. Sure people die everyday, but Michael was someone who we knew of for over 4 decades! Generations grew up with him and he had became a vast part of us, maybe not for you but that does not mean you can step on other people's views and feelings toward him.

Uso   July 29th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

There is no need for hate on this blog we are mostly fans of MJ's who are working through this tragedy and hoping to comfort each other on your blog. Thank you.

LindafromNewYork   July 29th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

I'ts pretty obvious to me that you don't know anything about MIchael Jackson except the ugly lies that he had to deal with all of his life. As far as his children are concerned, I don't see how they are any of you business.

Steve   July 29th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

After Michael Jacksons death, I heard that many Black Americans were furious at the doctor or doctors involved with Jacksons well being. Many high profile Black Americans made statements that this doctor or other doctors should be prosecuted. As of Saturday the 25th of July, I have now been hearing many Black Americans saying that certain charges should not come against this doctor. Michael Jacksons main doctor is a black man. OK! What happened to "these doctors or those in Jacksons inner circle should be held accountable for all of these crazy drugs".

Did that also happen to Elvis? Everyone new he was on all kinds of drugs (legal and illegal). When he died, no one was prosecuted. All I am saying is or actually asking is, what is the difference here? Two Kings died because of their own negligence and so-called "I am the King and I am invincible" attitudes!!! Yet, very kind and generous human beings!!!

Lesson learned – Just say NO! to Drugs?

Mae   July 29th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

When I 1st heard MJ had died I just didn't beleive it. As the story progressed and I heard about the amount of time before Dr called 911 I felt something was not right. His reasons for not calling did not make sense-there was no phone in MJ's room; he didn't use his cell because he didn't know the address, etc. When the talk turned to Diprivan I thought to myself, he was there to put MJ to sleep and wake him up. I said the Dr probably fell asleep and MJ died because Doc didn't wake him up as planned. I am sure doc didn't kill him on purpose but he was at fault for not monitoring him properly. There has been talk that Murray would said he wasn't the only one to give this medicine to MJ. Problem is, MJ didn't die with any of the other docs.
Such a sad story.

On Gates
The police officer should have simply left once Gates proved that the house was his. Maybe Gates should not have gone off but the cop had no reason to ask Gates to step outside once he knew Gates was the owner. Larry Elder with his rose colored glasses thinks that because Gates lives in a city w/ a black mayor and a state with a black gov that no racism exists in that state. He needs to take a look at the real world. Racism is still prevelent in this country even if we do have a black Pres. Did he not see the reactions and actions of the folks who would not vote for Obama. Yes there were blacks who weren't going to vote for him but it was the white folks who really displayed their racist feelings. As long as there are people there will be racism. It doesn't matter if it is 2009(as Elder stated) or 5009. The police report was not correct. I listened to the tape of the lady who called. She said nothing about backpacks or black men. The officer asked if they were black, white or hispanic and her response was she couldn't tell.

Lynn   July 29th, 2009 10:38 pm ET


NONE of the people who passed away recently have even come CLOSE to doing for society what MJ has done either!!

Lori   July 29th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Larry - In deference to responsible journalism, would you please comment about the Michael Jackson song you player tonight and put in context as to when it was released. The song should be listened to with that in mind.

Remember Michael was a poet and the lyrics have symbolic and allegoric meaning and are not necessarily a literal meaning.

Thank you

Luda   July 29th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

Diane, was "Dirty Diana" written for you?
Is that why you are so angry?


Lori   July 29th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Re: MJ personal cook/chef Kai Chase. It is very clear from the article that Ms. Chase is shopping a book deal. By giving an interview to the press, she has just guaranteed herself of massive world wide free publicity for a cookbook that is "food for a king". Another example of a MJ synchophant attempting to profit by hanging on to his coat tails.

Did anyone bother to verify ANY of her comments??

Diane   July 29th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

I am a psychologist with a very good practice and YES I do know what I'm talking about regarding parenting! Discipline & meeting a child's specifice needs are!!! Playing with your children does not make you a good parent!

I am a redhead that weighs 129 lbs and 5'7" tall, so no I'm not obese!

I never said he 'bleached' his skin.

Wouldn't it be nice to hear more stories about Walter Cronkite, Farrah Fawcett or Karl Malden? I don't recall hearing either of them doing drugs or accused of child molestation.

Lori   July 29th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Re Kai Chase:

TMZ haz been reporting on the aliases used to acquire prescription medications allegedly used for MJ. Kai Chase is one that has come up in that report. Will you please ask her about that? What is her involvement here? Did she have another agenda in addition to self-promotion of her book? It was mentioned in the article that MJ had both hired and fired her. Why was she rehired??

Daisy   July 29th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

We don't need to defend ourselves to any haters (ie. Diane). But please, don't stay on this blog if you weren't a fan. Luckily, michael's fan base is growing. He will NEVER be forgotten.

Linda   July 29th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

I keep thinking who caused Michael's hair catching on fire. Who was in charge of the stage light effect the night when his hair caught on fire? Is it an accident? Or is it intentional? Michael's life was totally changed after the incident.

I feel very sad for the kids.

Lori   July 29th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Back up off of Katherine Jackson. Isn't obvious why she wants some information and some participation in the administration of the estate?

She just lost her beloved son Michael in a horrific and tragically sad manner. She wants to maintain a connection with him. She wants to protect and cherish him as she has done throughout her life.

Allow Mrs. Jackson to have some status with regard to the estate. Work out compromise so no one needs to be racking up lawyers fees that could be put to better use.

Mrs. Jackson didn't stop being a mother when MJ died, let her do what she feels she needs to do. Grant MJ's mother some say. My gosh, if the executors didn't apppreciate what she has to say they can always out vote her.

This is about emotion and honor. Be kind.

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 10:51 pm ET


Just because you have a degree doesnt make you qualified for anything. Ask Dr. Murray.

And of course the media is not going to attack one of their own, so of course you wont hear it. Plus they didnt reach the level of humanity that Michael has ever reached. No one will.

Judith   July 29th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Had it not been for that reporter asking President Obama about Gates and the officer no one would have known about this.Bottom Line I blame the media for this asking the President what he thought.He is as much white as he is black and this put him in the middle.Had Obama said I'm not going to comment on this because right now I'm speaking of Health Care the media along with the rag time Fox News and Rush L would have played it throwing it to the right wackos
making something small large as what happen.

This President can't win on anything with some of the people and rag Fox and Rush L along with the Party of No knows this.They feed on wackos.

There is alot of racist going on in Ameria today with both sides and alot of it is the household they grew up with.Children learn by parents of what they hear.

genie   July 29th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

If the news media is correct that MJ had this Dr inject him so that he could sleep than I can't fault the Dr for doing what he was paid for. Pain is a horrible thing and when you can't have a normal life because of who you are you seek out those who won't sell your story to TMZ and other tabloids. There are people selling their morality for a whole lot less than 150,000 a month

Lynn   July 29th, 2009 10:52 pm ET


the Key word you just used was ACCUSED--and FOUND NOT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES.Also the case prior was settled out of court against MJs will by his insurance company.

Now lets get the thing we know to be PROVEN FACTS.
Gave over 400 million dollars to over 30 charities in his lifetime. Made the Guiness book of world records for same.
Made beautiful music directed at unitting the world.

Everyperson that actually knew Mj will report that he was an excellent father. Dont believe all the BS you hear by media. Do some homework and you will see.

Amsterdam   July 29th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Oh Dian, quit your babbling, they all had their lime light after death, Michael Jackson's death is a mystery and people desire to know the truth of to why he died.
Good for you that you are not overweight, that you have red hair and weigh so and so...... WHO CARES!
Michael was only ACCCUSED like you stated, i can accused anyone of anyone but that doesn't mean its veracious.
You apparently did not follow up on the trial or you would know the Arivzos family was vampires seeking to make a quick buck!

Lynn   July 29th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

I agree. Its not like she wants to take over the estate she just doesn't want to be kept in the dark. She has EVERY RIGHT to be able to do that and make sure things are done appropriately.

Judith   July 29th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Michael's three children are so beautiful and we pity them.

Let's hope that who ever raises them do it for love and not for the dollars.

Jacquelyn, that's a good one! (lol)

Thinker   July 29th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

People are beginning to think this guy is innocent by painting him like a good doctor from Las Vegas of all places. Look, this doctor did not even have permission to practice in California, why did he accept to be Michael's doctor if he did not have access to such facility. He was financially strapped, that really explains a lot of things. That is why he administered the drug to Michael at home. Every doctor in the world said such medication should not have been administered in the house but in hospital setting. He did not have access to the hospital so he decided to do it at his client's house. He was more interested in meeting celebrities instead of taking care of his client and that greed sky rocketed. He befriended Michael so Michael could trust him 100% and now this. He does not deserve to practice any medicine in any continent including Africa. if he cannot even perform a simple CPR correctly to save a person's life. Now there are children without the only parent they have ever known. Hope that money look great now JUDAS.

Lori   July 29th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Diane - you seem very, very defensive, and my I say a bit unprofessional and inmature? Why would you post your occupation on an internet blog and then state your description? Children need a parent that spends TIME with them. Apparently Michael Jackson was very available to his children. I am sure that Michael also knew something about appropriate discipine for children.

As a professional psychologist, it would seem you should be very aware of the meaning of the word " accquitted".

I also find it very difficult to beleive that a psycholigist with a good practice would post on a blog about the "low grade intelligence". Do you think that you might need to make an appointment for yourself with one of your professional collegues to discuss your anger management issues??

Ann   July 29th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

So Diane, you don't seem to like personal attacks yet at the same time you are personally attacking a dead man!

How does that feel?

Imagine going through it 365 days a year!

Mara   July 29th, 2009 11:02 pm ET

So at least I got 3 out of 4 correct.

I feel sorry for your patients. To have a psychologist that has alot of hate in her for MJ, someone who has done nothing to her or any human being for that matter.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 29th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

Good evening, everyone! I made it here late tonight.

Mary   July 29th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

It is so sad that some people cared and others didn't. This could have been prevented if Dr. Conrad was not so greedy about paying his past due bills and getting his house out of foreclosure. Human life is more valuable to those who care, apparently he didn't. As for Katherine she has a greddy lawyer, Janet has a lot of money and I am sure she would not mind providing for her mother and Michael's kids. I would hate to imagine she wants more then the 40% she's careful (Katherine) remeber the "clause"? Michael, it's a shame you died because of a drug overdose, but you will not be the last. Be the angel that heals your family, most importantly if you have angel wings guide and protect your kids from this mess you left behind. God Bless!

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 11:07 pm ET


I was thinking the exact same thing about the pepsi commercial.

Before the commercial incident, Michael seem like a man full of confidence, had a zest for life, and everything else that goes with it. When he was burned his life and mood changed. And then here came the vultures.

Jacquelyn   July 29th, 2009 11:08 pm ET


Thanks 😀

Reality in AR   July 29th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

This was really sad for the children. And why does it matter who the father of MJ's kids were, he was their Daddy and they loved him. Nobody is Africa looking for Angelina Jolie's adopted daughter's parents. He signed the birth certificate, he raised them, he loved them, and they were happy. Now for all these drug pushing doctors and these celebs who eat these drugs like candy...Please wake up. You are no different than the drugged out hooker getting her next fix from the local drug dealer. You can die too. Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole, Elvis and the list goes on.

There has been so much specutlation. Until,the Toxicology report is confirmed we have no sufficient evidence, except hearsay.

I did see the CNN report with the anesthetic Propofol, being administered to a patient. The patient immediately stop breathing on his own. An anesthesiologist had to controlled the patients breathing.

This Dr. Murray, knew very well that he ran the potential risk of malpractice while adminstrating, such a powerful drug, and will now have to face with the consequences.

carol kesling   July 29th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

diane, you are way to CRUEL !!!!!!!!!! you should remember the golden rule.... he was beloved by alot of people,and those of us that do care he will be vey MISSED !!!!!!!!! you need to be a little kinder !!!!!

Diane   July 29th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

Thanks Bill!!

I enjoy watching CNN and MSNBC but am tired of hearing about MJ which is why I spoke up. At what point will it finally be enough? He may have many accolades but that doesn't take away from the way he led his personal life. Until his death I was unaware of his drug use but why keep talking about it? Seems like his fans would want that kind of talk to stop. Doesn't it take away from the good things he was famous for?

Personally I do not like to spend my evenings writing about someone only to be put down and told my degrees are meaningless. All the articles I have published on familes, parenting and child care have never been criticised. Much of my practice is spent on observation.

I guess I didn't realize writing a blog would be so dehumanizing but more of a First Ammendant right.

Bill Bresch   July 29th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

Lori   July 29th, 2009 11:20 pm ET

Mary - I don't think that Mrs. Kathrine Jackson has a greedy lawyer at all. He is being prudent and very, very thourough in his representation of his client. It is his job to be zealous. There is the future welfare of MJ children at stake here. He needs to make sure that all of MJ beneficiaries are well protected and informed. It may even become necessary, since the MJ estate, is so incredibly complex, to appoint a lawyer to see to the financial interests of the children independently from Mrs. Katherine.

S Callahan   July 29th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son Romans 8:29 (NIV)

I think the children will come out of this with extrodinary spiritual strength. This has been heartbreaking for so many yet it is in these times that God opens the floodgates of his love, pouring out his Mercy and Grace for all that want to recieve. Sleep well Michael.

I know I am in the minority here, but I truly love Joe Jackson. The man is brilliant! Just look at him. The wiley old fox has got something in mind....

I think Joe Jackson is a man who always has a plan, and serveral back ups as well. What other person on earth created the superstars that were the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson. The man has gifts as well.

Solid   July 29th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

For Gates issue, he should have respected the authorities at that point in time. You can twist it anyway you want, the person who acted "stupidly" here was the professor himself. You cannot teach what you do not believe in. Arrogance does not serve anyone, no matter whom you know. Obama should have stayed out of it and concentrate in fixing the depression we are in. There are so many things to do, than for him to involve himself in trivial matters just because the professor was or is his friend. YOU CANNOT BE BIAS AND SIT IN THE OVAL OFFICE. I THINK, IT IS TIME WE AS A NATION RETHINK THIS WHOLE "CHANGE" ISSUE BECAUSE THIS IS "NOT THE CHANGE" THIS COUNTRY NEEDS AT THIS TIME. "THE OFFICE CALL FOR SOMEONE WHO MUST BE NEUTRAL AT ALL TIMES WITH THE CITIZENS. LISTEN TO ALL SIDES BEFORE OPENINING YOUR MOUTH AND PRAY FOR "SOLOMON'S WISDOM".

No matter what people thought ot Michael jackson or how they felt about him as a person there is no denying the fact that he was a caring loving father. My heart breaks for the kids. As someo ne who lost my mother suddenly to a blood clot that is one thing one shock you will never get over. I was 32yrs old when that happened and it still haunts me to this day. I pray these children will come out of this ok and beleft alone to live the childhood Mr. Jackson wanted for them. May GOD bless Prince Paris and Little Blanket. And may he grant Katherine Jackson the strength to care and provide for her grandchildren

Don't try to use psychology on us we are not 5 year olds.

We are from all over the world and are intelligent people with intelligent careers who love Michael Jackson the King of Pop.

We are on this blog for a reason. If you are unhappy with CNN and it's topics turn the station but don't try to ruin our evening and our love for MJ because it won't work.

We stand strong because we love and believe in him but we will attack and defend him also.

BIGDKDADDY   July 29th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Come on people, MJ was just hooked on drugs. His brain was the scrambled egg in the pan that could not take it no more. How could people around him that knew he was an addict let him continue to have custody of his kids===payoffs? I feel bad for the kids, but every dog has its day. Come on, this if old news. Just beat it!

Monica   July 29th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

I often read the posted comments regarding the various issues that come up on CNN, and am too often shocked and saddened by the hatefulness and divisiveness in the comments.

The Gates debacle underscores the unfortunate racial divide in America. Whether or not Gates was the victim of racial profiling, the officer went too far. For some reason, Americans fight hard for freedom everywhere in the world, but are reluctant to demand that law enforcement officers follow the laws they enforce.

Freedom from unreasonable search and seizure–Fourth Amendment. Warrants to enter a man's castle WITH probable cause–Fourth Amendment. Freedom of speech–First Amendment. I might not agree with what Gates had to say, but he had a right to say it.

Someone told me that they would not bring a dog to Dr Murray for treatment. This same personal was a medical professional.

I would like to know why Dr Murray ran and they towed his car away right after Michael Jackson died? I think from day 1 the Dr was running scared and he knew he was going to be caught.

A lot of time went by before they searched Dr Murrays offices and home
who knows what could of disappeared? What about the moving van at Michael Jackson's home what was taken? I hear his family took things before it was ruled a suspicious death.

I would just like people to focus on the humanitarian things that Michael Jackson did for others and the love he had for his children.
I don't blame him for keeping his children out of the public's telescoping eyes. It would be like you are a bug under a magnifying glass. Who wants that?

Valgin   July 29th, 2009 11:35 pm ET


His fans are still talking about it because WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT KILLED HIM. When that mystery is solved and those responsible, if any, are brought to justice then I'm certain nightly talk of Michael Jackson will cease. Happy now?

Not liking Michael Jackson is your business, but why be so nasty with the name calling and accusations?

I hope this changes the way prescription pain medication is handed out by doctors. In my opinion the only pain killing medication in vicodin is aceteminophan. Vicodin is an addicting opiate and should not be doled out by every single emergency room in this country. Doctors should be held accountable and they should be held to the same laws as street drug dealers. Anyone can go into any emergency room and come out with narcotics. Go look at an emergency room and see how many broken backs you have.You should also look at the social securtiy attorneys and their doctors. Go to the dive bars on Friday where all of the broken back social security recipients cash their checks from their jobs and watch all the pills passing around for more cash. It is amazing that such a blind eye is being turned and the most alarming thing is so many Americans know this goes on and acts so stunned. Dentists are another culprit.

Diane – I am sorry you are tired of hearing about the Michael Jackson matter. It should be obvious that this is a story that will be in the news for years to come since there are so many facets to it.

I think you have been oversimplyfing the matter. Consider that there is an full-court press death investigation being conducted in multiple states by multiple law enforcement agencies.

There will soon be a press conference and the coronors report will be released.

There may be criminal charges and arrest warrants to follow. It has been reported that their are dozens of doctors under investigation along with many ancillary facilities, pharmacies, clinics, hospitals, distributors, etc. This may be the world's largest and most in depth investigation into the abuse of prescription medications. I am guessing that these folks know who they are (anyone who treated MJ in the last 5 or more years) and I bet the are allready lawyerd up.

There is the custody matter of the children which will be ongoing until Blanket Jackson turns 18.

There is the probate matter and the administration of the Jackson estate.

There is the possibility of another Jackson child.

There is the issue of AEG Live and Sony and their business deals with Michael Jackson.

There could be more "shocking revelations" to come.

Stay tuned. This one is going to be in the press for YEARS to come!!

I do not understant what if any relevance you claiming to be a published writer who "has never been criticised" has to do with the Michael Jackson matter, unless of course, you are or have treated him, and/or prescribed medication for him, or are plannning to write a book about him?

Michael Jackson family, friends and fans just want to get to the truth of his death and eventually find the solace of closure. But that is hard right now when everything that is being reported continues to conflict.

Which again begs the question, why are you posting on a blog that is been heavily directed towards the Michael Jackson case?

Meyling L.   July 29th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

This is the proof of how great father Michael Jackson was. If there is something we must give credence to, other than he is the greatest entertainer that ever lived, is the fact that he gave his children the best of him as a parent and also he gave them a wonderful home atmosphere. He really was a wonderful example as a father. That day was just a terrible day for all of us but I just can't imagine how hard it was for his kids and for his employees. GOD BLESS ALL THE PEOPLE WHO CARED ABOUT HIM AND HIS CHILDREN! I know they are gonna be all right because he raised them the best way.

Marth   July 29th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

Those poor children! Does anybody know if Michael had been treated for bipolar disease or any other mental issues that would have contributed to his insomnia? I heard on ABC that he felt "creative" at night and felt like if he didn't work the ideas he had at night, God would send them to Prince (the singer). They also said he'd stay up all night and bid on ebay. This sounds like a deeper issue, and I cannot believe no one addressed it. Poor guy! And God bless his dear children!

Karla   July 29th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

Michael Jackson was the best father ever! That's what his children said! They seem like very well educated kids and they look full of love. These people like his chef are the people that really knew Michael, people who used to see him everyday, people who saw how he loved those kids. I love Michael Jackson forever and i truly believe he was a great humanitarian person! I just have to see his face to see he was a very very loving person! God bless his kids!!!!!

Remedios   July 29th, 2009 11:53 pm ET

I think folks need to leave Joe Jackson alone. He is 80 years old and has accomplished more in his lifetime than many of us have or will.

If it was not for Joe Jackson, there would be no celebrities known as The ackson 5, no Michael Jackson, no Janet Jackson. Those children could not introduce themselves to any one, or drive themselves anywhere. Joe did it with a little change in his pocket and in a hard-scrabble neighborhood. So back away from him. According to Katherine: "The children had natural talent but Joe cultivated it".

According to Michael:"My father was a genius when it came to the way he taught us staging, how to work an audience, anticipating what to do next, or never to let the audience know if you are suffering or if something is going wrong. He was amazing like that"-Ebony magazine interview, December 2007.

Michael long forgave his father for his strict discipline and he said that often . He loved his dad and his dad loved him. I think it would break Michaels's heart if he knew people are villifying and misunderstanding his dad the same way they did him, all fueled by media soundbites.

Don't attempt to judge how he is dealing with his grief, especially since he is from an era when black men trained themselves not to show emotion because of all of the injustice and Jim Crow racism they had to deal with. (not using the race card here, just facts. Feel free to look it up)

Leave Katherine alone as well. She just wants to know what's going on with her son's esate so she can protect his legacy.

Every family has issues, including yours. It doesn't mean people don't love one another. Those of you being so judgemental need to take the speck out of your own eye.

Stranger in Moscow   July 29th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

I think the chef will be on LKL on Thursday night. Should be interesting – I do hope that the truth does come out what really happened the morning of June 25th. Love you MJ, I'm still missing you.

Mike the Canadian   July 29th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

Well, I have no pity or compassion for them. Thousands of childrens lose theirs parents everyday and no ones talk about them, but just because thoses are "childrens" of Michael Jackson they deserve this.

Michael Jackson is a surevaluated artist and should not deserve all that attention. He lived a life of luxure 99% of the people can never afford and lived to the extreme.

He got what he deserve, tell me you're all good christians after, loving the golden idol.

Janice   July 29th, 2009 11:59 pm ET

I am not sure I believe this chef. There was another personal chef on radar on line a few weeks ago. Who is the real chef? He claimed he did the same things for the famly that she did. They can't both be telliing the truth. In fact some of her statements are lifted from his account.

I think this woman is looking for notoriety. Did she go to the police with this info to help in the investigation? She spins a lovely story but it's too neat a package. Why couldn't she call 911? Why would a grown man call a child upstairs? Prince couldn't help him. It's not making sense to me. I think she wants to promote her book.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 30th, 2009 12:00 am ET

Remedios, I second ALL of that!! I like Joe Jackson, and he and Michael had buried the hatchet a few years before his death. Within the last few years, Michael even said that, as he got older, he saw a lot of his father's traits and qualities in him. (And he didn't say it in a negative way, either.)

Give Joe a break!! Michael did!!

New Orleans, LA.   July 30th, 2009 12:04 am ET

For Pam:

What about Joe Jackson? Joe Jackson knows that he and he alone
is the reason Michael turned to so many drugs to numb his recollections
of his abuisve/non-childhood yrs. Michael surely had nightmares
for yrs. after and up until his death, he could not get to sleep and stay alseep. Any true Michael fan would be angry with Joe for giving his
talented son the TORTURED life that he had to live.
Had Joe just loved Michael for being his son and not just for being"The
Greatest Superstar'. , Michael's life and world would have been so different and Michael would still be here sharing all his gifts with us
for many yrs. to come.
I detest this pathetic excuse for a FATHER! Everytime he speaks he sees only dollar signs and now, it surprises no one that he is pressuring Katherine to declare Michael incompetent to be able to control his final will and testament after his sons' death? The man is beyond dispicable and disgusting. God help him, he needs help!!!

Mark   July 30th, 2009 12:05 am ET

I'm so sick of hearing black activist crying about the way their treated. The cops are only doing their job and isn't it a coincidence that the majority of crime in America is black against black. Do the math and look at the statistics. Blacks need to yes stand up for their rights but more importantly the black communities has to start taking responsibility for their actions. CNN I haven't seen anything like this in all my years on earth. President Obama said it best. There ain't no excuses stop blaming cops or white people for your problems. I'm not a racist and have many ethnic friends. Many issues are directly related to poverty and economic times. White's today have no problem with the black community and I haven't heard one friend of mine or seen one friend of mine racist. STOP with the blame and put the onuses on dialogue within the black community. Hell I would march down any road hand in hand with any black man.

In regards to Michael Jackson I haven't seen one article yet from any of these so called news programs about the charities and or the contributions Michael made to the pop culture and to the black community yet. We are so fascinated with the ugly details of his death that we forget about the man himself. A father and from what I can see a damn good one. I just can't bare to see another story on these poor kids. I pray the media leaves them alone and let them have a normal childhood.

Go away already. Can you not take hint that you're not wanted here? I'm sure there is maybe one {if you look hard enough} blog somewhere that you will fit in, BUT IT AIN'T THIS ONE!!!!!

And you wanna know what I think? I'm gonna tell you anyway!! If you disrespect MR. and Mrs. Jackson, you are disrespecting Michael...plain and simple. If people would have taken the time to listen to Michael, instead of taking what the freaking tabloids say and run with it, you would here him state how much he LOVED his mom AND dad very much, and that he regretted alot that had happened.
Bother watching a home movie or two of Michaels. It doesn't take a brain expert to figure it out.
Hey Jacquelyn, Lina NY, Mary U and all MJ fans, I'm glad to be back, I think.

Larry, Would you ask the panel,Bywhat right did this Dr. have to give this drug to Anybody especially in a home? It has been reported this Dr. gave it to Michael several times before. Would the Dr. still be in violation of the medical codes for administering this drug?

Secondly, you have a egotisical Dr. who needed money it seems. He only worked for Michael not even a month. Was it greed that propelled him, was he going to do a Heroic Rescue and have Michaels oldest son watch this or is there something else going on here? A Dr. who needs money, an entertainer who needs money, a media conglomeration who had a 17.5 mil isurance policy, a nutrionist who has blood work from February that says Michael did not have drugs in his system or needle marks anywhere, people signing secrecy contracts with AEG . So, who did this all of a sudden? Was this because Michael was going to stop the other 40 concerts he was unaware of at the time he agreed to only 10? This was no accident.. Why didn't the Doctor just say No, Iam not going to do this as he had a rigth to alert the authroities.

Lynn   July 30th, 2009 12:18 am ET

New Orleans,

Joe Jackson was far from a perfect father. He was abusive to Mj throughout his growing up BUT MJ forgave him. I do believe that he harbored resentment towards his father howeever, MJ was doing OK up until the Pepsi commercial and the start of Plastic Surgery and pain meds. He was crucified by the media on a regualr basis for at least the last 15 years or so and THIS is what I believe led to the sleepless nights. The more he tried to explain anything, the more the media twisted every word out of his mouth to portray him in the worst possible light. THIS IS WHAT CAUSED HIM TO BECOME DEPENDENT ON MEDS. TO KILL BOTH PHYSICAL BUT MORE SO EMOTIONAL PAIN.

All the haters on tonight are the result of the brainwashing MEDIA. Jumping on the bandwagon without having a clue what really has gone on in MJ 's life.

Tyrese   July 30th, 2009 12:20 am ET

New Orleans, LA.   July 30th, 2009 12:22 am ET


And what about all the years of abuse that Joe has continusely
admitted to doing? Perhaps if Joe had just loved him for just being
his son and not a SUPERSTAR, Michael would have not had to numb
himselff with so many drugs and been able to sleep normally.
Did it occur to you that the reason Michael wanted to have this comeback
tour and was so stressed for it all to go well was due to the pressures
he STILL felt deep inside from his father, Michael knowing and feeling
that his father could only bring himself to loving his son, Michael
when Michael was preforming as a SUPERSTAR?
Ask any Pychologist, especially a child pychologist will inform you of
what constant pressure and abuse brought unto a child will do to their
adulthood. It stays with them forever, especially a celebrity of Michael's stature, who needs to preform at his best all the time.
Do you recall the numerous interviews over so many yrs. when Michael stated that he is not happy nor satisfied until he achieves
perfection? That was all Joe's conditioning him as a young child
from 5yrs. on, he was expected to give a perfect performance everytime! As per Michael himself. Joe would belt the brothers as well and tell them to do it like Michael. That was because Joe demanded
PERFECTION and used the abuse to get what Joe wanted. It is
apparent to everyone when Joe speaks on camera that he is a
total CONTROL FREAK, just as he controls Katherine and she could not stop the violence in this family. Everyone feared Joe and he used
his fear and intimidation tactics to control EVERYONE...
Did you ever have any abuse as a child from either parent? If not,
how could you know what Michael had to live through for too many yrs.?
You were not there...

Toni   July 30th, 2009 12:24 am ET

And you are here...Why? I have many single parent friends. And he had every right to have children. And you have NO idea what kind of relationship Michael had with His youngest sons mother. Plus, were you there everynight to see the truth, cause we have about fifteen different stories going on here with all of these money hungry vulchers. So if you Know the honest to God truth, than say it. If it's out of a tabloid or off of Nancy Grace, it's for ratings and sales.

isabella   July 30th, 2009 12:25 am ET

As a police sergeant I also taught cultural sensitivity. This was a good opportunity for the sergeant to utilize his expertise in deescalating the situation. When he told Mr. Gate to come outside for the purpose of arresting him, that was an indication that the sgt. was offended and took it personal. He obviously felt that he did not get the gratitude for showing up to help a black person. The sergeant had ample time to leave. I am also appauld that the president would allow such an officer to the white house for a beer. Just because he taught cultural sensitivity doesn't mean that he was qualified, his very action(s) indicates this. And what about the false statement he made about the witness. I believe that the president should have just apoligize to the police department and let it go. There is no way this sgt. should receive the treatment he's getting. He should be up on charges; at least for false report. This teachabel moment the president elludes to would lead one to believe that the sgt.'s behavior was okay and that he was rewarded for it, when the sgt. was refusing to apoligize it spoke volumes about his personality. He is NO good cop, I know, I've profiled him and worked with officers like him for over 25 years on a larger police department. Anytime a sgt. feels that he can disrespect the directions of a superior if told to apologize, he's a loose cannon.

EY   July 30th, 2009 12:26 am ET

My comments on the Gates case

It is simple: Gates is a well-known person, who just so happen to be Black. The cop is a well-know person, who just so happen to be White.

Gates was angry, most people in power do not like to feel intimidated
The police (who also like power) do not like to feel humiliated, especially if he/she is White and the opposite party is a minority

Case being: Gates probably cursed the police and refused to cooperate, the police in turn, cursed back, became angry and did what most police personnel would do, arrest the man.

It was a mixture of race and power and neither party wanted to lose.
Therefore, any excuse that either party use to cover their mistakes, at this point is equal for both. Nobody wins this one.

Sam   July 30th, 2009 12:26 am ET

wow!! This was indeed an unforgettable day 4 the world! but I could only imagine that day @ MJ home!! what a traumatic event it was for his kids!! He continues to be in my prayers & will for ever be in my heart!! His soul is in peace now I hope & his memory will always be among us!
I am sure this account is real! Many people believed only what they morbid minds wanted to believe, but I know Michael was an espectacular person, not only for his obvious artistic talents & voice, but because he dared to be "different"!! I have always admired him, since my childhood, I grew up listening to his music & quickly became his fan!
There was always a lot more to him than meets the eye, but not necessarily a bad thing! He was perhaps more "normal" & "connected" that many of us! We could hear it in his lyrics!! but people turned a deaf ear to his inner struggles, he was @ war with himself,but perhaps because the world refused to him as his soul destiny made him be? We'll never know...but I knew he could not be the monster many cash-craving individuals claimed he was!! but they did in fact, tainted his reputation & he suffered deeply for it! RIP! :'-(

Stella   July 30th, 2009 12:31 am ET

No one had any right to criticize or call the lady that made the 911 call any types of names. She did the right thing by reporting a potential crime. No citizen should feel uncomfortable to report an potential crime because of fear of being called a racist, or any other negative term otherwise they wouldn't be doing their duty as a citizen. Yes I agree that there are police officers that base their actions on race but sometimes they are just doing their job and shouldn't be punished for that. I think there was a huge lack of respect in part on the Professor to react in the way that he did, if in fact that's how he reacted. If you are not guilty then let the officer do his job and get on with his day. Had the officer been disrespectful and pushy after knowing that it was a false alarm then i can understand that the situation was in fact racially motivated. What I do want to know, was the officer there by himself or did he have back-up and if so, what do his fellow officers, black or white, have to say about the situation and how it was handled?

New Orleans, LA.   July 30th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Hi Lynn,

Yes, Michael forgave his father. Michael was guided by love and by his
God. Michael knew that forgiving his father would be the right thing to do.
That does not erase the horrific beatings, fear tactics and vomitting Michael indured his entire childhood, what little childhood Joe allowed
to happen. Any child pychologist/pychiatrist can assure you that the tortured life Michael lived his entire life is because of Joe Jackson.
Just ask the professionals and perhaps you would see Joe in a different light.
No human being could come out OKAY and normal with a father like that.
Joe , himself admitted in every interview that he used corpral punishment in disciplining ALL his sons!
I recall that LaToya stated several years ago that her father sexually abused her. Joe Jackson is a MONSTER and God knows everything that he did to all his children and he will get what he deserves when his judgement day comes, that is certain...

Where was this father when during the 2005 trial it was noted that
Michael's drug dependencies were very real? If you take the time to look
back at those videos of Michael walking into the court everyday, you will
notice that he would flinch and move a bit over everytime Joe would
stand too close to him and you will also notice that Michael only took
hold of his mother's arm and purposefully stayed close to her and her alone. Michael showed the deaminer that he wished his father was not there because he did not want him there, Michael's painful
childhood, or lack there of one, was still very fresh in those
video clips during the 2005 trial.
Just go back online and carefully take a look and take notice, you will see just that!!!

MM   July 30th, 2009 12:41 am ET

In another version of Kai's story, told by ABC NEWS, Murray rushed down the stairs and screamed "Go get Prince!"
Why does a doctor handling an emergency situation need to talk to a 12-year old child ?
Murray earlier said he ran around the house looking for someone to call 911 – well then why not run down the stairs screaming "Call 911" and go back to his patient to continue CPR ?

This is just a very wild guess but .. did Murray by any chance leave Prince to monitor his Dad while the doctor had gone about his own business ?!
Then came back later to find MJ alone and unresponsive and rushed to get Prince so that the child could tell him for how long Michael's been like that ?

I've heard some stories coming from foreign press talking about Prince seeing his Dad on the bed and thinking that he was sleeping.

Again, this is not based on sound facts but just a hypothesis to consider.

New Orleans, LA.   July 30th, 2009 12:41 am ET

Where was Joe Jackson when he could have saved Michael
when the pain meds. addictions began?

Where was Joe? Yes, Joe is the ONLY reason Michaels' drug addictions
led to his death!

EVERYONE knows this. Fact is Fact...

Prince, Paris and Blanket: you are precious. You kids are in my prayers.

Matty (Atlanta)   July 30th, 2009 12:45 am ET

I am not impressed with Larry Elder. Actually, I find his defense of the "good' cops to be despicable. After discovering that a mistake had been made and no crime was being committed, the officer should have apologized and left professor Gates' home. After all of the abuses perpetrated against African Americans at the hands of the police, I think there may be reason to be a tad bit defensive. And, this homeowner, also, had jet lag! Put yourself in his position.

Samantha   July 30th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Michael Jackson was a victim of his own addiction. Dr. Murray should not be a scapegoat for the public in his death. We should try to avoid always blaming the doctor when it is clear many people were probably responsible for Michael's addiction.

jamie   July 30th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Toni- this man had all the money in the world, and he used it to find doctors to give him 'milk of amnesia'. I don't have any sympathy for him , his kids are orphaned because he risked his life getting an iv of anesthesia every night. And I think the messed up family that created this trainwreck of a drug addict should have to pay for all the court costs associated with prosecuting the doctors who have him his 10s of thousands of pills.

I am so sick of hearing about Jackson and the media trying to make this guy look sympathetic. He was a junkie. Junkies die. Too bad he's gonna leave 3 kids who will probably be featured often on TMZ in a few years.

Ju   July 30th, 2009 12:52 am ET

This is perhaps one of the most genuine testimonies about Michael Jackson (from his inner circle). Thanks for sharing.

Samantha   July 30th, 2009 12:53 am ET

This is typical of Americans to always blame the doctor. If a patient chooses to manipulate the system and get multiple prescriptions, that is the patient's fault. A physician can only try his or her best to prescribe appropriately and if a patient lies, the physician is not the one to blame.

su halfon   July 30th, 2009 12:54 am ET

Please! Enough of this never ending MJ's repetitious programs with no final results yet , with the same pictures over and over! (Have mercy on the families involved!)
Also Mr.King tonite was constantly iinterrupting his guests , making very difficult to follow anybody.
With so many dramas going on in our Country and the world, can we please get intelligent programs and reports?

Toni   July 30th, 2009 12:54 am ET

New Orleans LA
The media and screwed up people made a complete mockery out of Michaels life after that comercial. The public pecked him to death little by little until he was in a dark world all alone with his children. So dont blame it ALL on Joe Jackson, when the media and public ridicule were worse. My God, just look at all the media and money vulchers now? They make Joe look like a little twig in a corner. The public hurt Michael far more than his father ever did. He said many, many times that he forgave his father, and he is'nt here to see Joe now, and that family is not going to let him hurt those children. So for their sakes, I hope everyone would just stop bashing their grandparents, because they will here this some day. I really hope and pray Michael cannot see all of this. What a disgrace to him.

harpermd   July 30th, 2009 12:57 am ET

I agree with everyone very sad for the kids indeed. But I sence they will be ok. Prepare people. The world is about to change.

Julie   July 30th, 2009 12:57 am ET

The person who called 911 said that Michael and Dr. Murray were the only people in the house when everything went wrong. But reading the article from the chef, it seems as though the house was full of people. So, Dr. Murray claims that he did not know the address of the home, so he gave Michael CPR for a half hour or so, that does not make sense at all. If the was a house full of people then how could he have not just yelled out for HELP? It just does not make sense..... Why would Dr. Murray call Prince into the room where Michael was? If Prince actually went into that room and saw his father's lifeless body that would be horribly devistating. What was Dr. Murray thinking? Myself, I will never forget how they left my Mom after she passed away in an ER room and how she looked with all of the tubes and everything, that image is etched in my mind for the rest of my life and it haunts me every day of my life. For a 12 year old boy to see his father laying in his bed lifeless, I just cannot image how he is dealing with all of this. I believe that Dr. Murray should be held accountable!

Donna Clifford   July 30th, 2009 12:57 am ET

According to Judge Brown ref: COP vs Home Owner......if the COP"s step inside the door of a home owner, the COP should be to all you COPS out there.......just don't go past the front door regardless of what is happening on the inside......or if Judge Brown is you judge he'lll throw the book at you!!!!!!


I can tell you racial profiling goes on BOTH SIDES.....with all the children who have been raised up with Jessie Jackson and AL Sharptons.......the YOU OWE ME ATTITUDES.....and I hate to tell you I don't owe anyone anything......My ancsetors FOUGHT and DIED to give Black slaves their freedom.

While the POOR Professor may have just flew home from China and was tired .....the POOR Cop may have had to just fight a drunk while cussing him the whole time, or had to STEP INTO THE HOME and SEPERATE A 'HOME OWNER' FROM BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF HIS WIFE.....did the COP know Judge Brown would have sued the pants of him for violating the home owner rights?????????????

Janet   July 30th, 2009 1:00 am ET

that song demerol is a bunch of bs if you ask me. why don't people just leave him alone already. let him rest in peace. gessh.

Katherine   July 30th, 2009 1:03 am ET

Good grief, Mr. Gates is the one making this into a big issue! I am a white, middle-aged woman living alone with my twenty year old son in a very nice neighborhood. One night not long ago my son put in the wrong code into the alarm system and it sent a silent alarm to the local police department. A silent alarm for those who do not know is a code you enter in your alarm that shuts off the alarm but notifies the police that they need to investigate. This is a special code that a person would enter in the alarm box in a situation such as a break in where the intruder is threatening you and ordering you to turn off the alarm. The alarm box shows the alarm has been turned off and the alarm sound is shut off, but a signal alerts the police to come right away. Well I awoke to seeing flashlights in the dark outside my bedroom and around my home and an officer ringing my back doorbell. I answered the door in my nightgown and robe as it was about 2:00 am. The officer made me go and get a picture ID to prove it was me that lived at the address and then kept insisting to know if I was okay. I was annoyed at my alarm going off but very grateful to the police department for the check. I supposed if I had gotten belligerent with the officer, he would have very easily arrested me, and I would not have blamed him one bit. Police officers put their life on the line every time they answer a call. They never know what situation is going to unfold. Gates is the one that should be ashamed of himself along with the president for making such a remark.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 1:04 am ET

Then go somewhere where you can express you views and have people agree with you. This blog is mostly full of people that respected the man. Fortunately we are all going to bed now. It's usually about this time { for some reason} that all of the insensitive jerks crawl out. So we tend to let them have it for the night. Have fun blogging.

MJLover   July 30th, 2009 1:06 am ET

I dont know maybe its me but I am starting to feel that everyone who knew MJ dont care about him but only care about his money especially his family!!!! like mother, father, brothers and sisters....sereiously...I mean I was not expecting that these chefs or car driver to be loyal at all but seriously I was also not expecting this attitude from his family. I really feel disheartened when his dad looked confused about Omar Bhatti: he speculated that he could be his son because he looks like him, dance like him act like him....but what a shame that he doesnt even know his grandchild......shame on him....hes only for money....MJ was right that he WAS the golden hen of the family........and his mother!!! OMG one peice on earth....she is after his money also....not happy w/ the 40%....I understand if you want money from Joe, then solve that problem later, please dont mix it with MJ estate.....please.....everyone here is about money...I feel like I am going to throw up when ever I think of his family members !!! Oh God....Guide humans to the right path...path of love and care and save us from materialistic things like greed for money!!!! AMEN!

Vicky Brush   July 30th, 2009 1:06 am ET

God always takes the good ones before their time. There must be a purpose, a need, for Michael in Heaven. God rest his soul.

This man... this beautiful human being the many of us have deeply loved and respected, will be greatly missed beyond words.

PA   July 30th, 2009 1:08 am ET

Will the childern ever be DNA tested to see if they are his real childern? I know they are his because he raised them from birth but are they really his blood. When the pictures of them as little childern they are really white. The pictures now make them look to more darker skin. I hope they are going to have a happy life and not have to go through life like their dad. Rest in peace michael!

Nathalie B   July 30th, 2009 1:10 am ET


Michael Jackson had security right??
Possible he had video cameras? I just thought of that...
Then again, if he did, it would have been mentioned. But just like the woman who asked what he was wearing.. it's kind of something that could give a lot of answers.

and for that post. Wow I started crying so hard. I'm just imagining the mood shift and it hurts my heart.

Carlos Jean-Gilles   July 30th, 2009 1:12 am ET

Mr. Gates was on his property. The minute that he proved that he was the owner of the house, the cop should have said, "Thank you, Sir, and good night." Or, he could have asked for identification from Mr. Gates, go to his car, and verify that he was the owner of that address.

To all those who claim that the cop was just doing his job, I say: nonsense! The cop had no business being on his property once he proved that he was the owner of the house. Obama was right: the cop acted stupidly, period.

LuCinda Douglas   July 30th, 2009 1:13 am ET

Michael Jackson was a phenominal human being, a gift from God, a true angel on earth. I believe his family deserves closure and I wish the media would just stop! I myself feel a huge lose, I have loved him my whole life and I will miss him greatly, but it is time to leave it alone and let his family deal with the tradgedy privately. Michael you will always be loved and never forgotten.

Stacey   July 30th, 2009 1:21 am ET

MJ was a great father..he was Peter Pan. But he was an addict too..wake up people!

Jackie Norton   July 30th, 2009 1:21 am ET

Marcia Clark was way over the top with her comments and seemed not as informed as she should have been. This could be a civil case – medical malpractice – negligence, not necessarily criminal. She said he wasn't a good doctor, no proof. She said he'd been suspended. He was suspended privileges from a hospital because of not signing his charts – a common medical record problem for a lot of doctors. She said he'd been arrested...there was a domestic violence accusation from which he was cleared. A cardiologist is an internist, an appropriate specialist if someone is messing with drugs. Too much certainty and authority in her statements. Too many assumptions. This wasn't responsible attorney behavior. Having money problems doesn't make a person a criminal.

jamie   July 30th, 2009 1:22 am ET

Well, at least HLN isn't broadcasting news for people who respected Jacko, they're coverage is for the same people who loved the coverage of the molestation trial. It's a joke, look at the druggie who got some bankrupt doctor to give him a drug that no other doctor would give. Nancy Grace and JVM will run with this story daily for months, unless another cute kid is killed, this is gonna be daily fare on HLN, all the Jacko dirt. It's hysterical.

I love the coverage, it's way more interesting than a lot of what's been on recently, but it's only gonna get worse for the Jacko fans who think this guy was some saint.

Vanessa Duncan   July 30th, 2009 1:27 am ET

Good evening Larry king, watch teh show almost every time, it is good.
Gates and Crowly. The police should not have arrested Professor Gates. WRONG MOVE ON THE PART OF THE POLICE, it is the action of the police that has caused all of this media attention. Leave President Obama alone, George W Bush went to war for nothing another stupid move. Obama has the right to say what he likes when he wants to, to be frank america dose not deserve him.

Michael Jackson> My hero i like about him every day since his death. I still say that the Santa Barbra District Attorney's office owe him a public SORRY FOR WHAT WE DID TO MICHAEL AND HIS CHILDREN!!!!!!!!. The family from the first settlement should pay back the money the stole from false claims they made against Michael Jackson. How do people get away with these unlawful act. ONLY IN AMERICA

Elizabeth   July 30th, 2009 1:29 am ET

A Home for the lost and thrown away children... Neverland?

Michael Jackson built Neverland to be a sanctuary, a safe haven where children could truly experience a piece of childhood. Michael was a gentle soul with such an enormous amount of love to give, I cannot help but believe he would want his legacy to be one that continued to reach others with that love.

There are so many “lost children” who have simply been thrown away, by parents, families, “the system” and society in general. Children who desperately need a place where they can be loved and cared for, given structure, stability and people to help them realize there is a place for them in this world.

I have seen them while they sit in institutions, pathetic, waiting for someone, anyone to care enough to come and get them. Abandoned by parents who drop them at a mental hospital, then refuse to take them back. Children in grossly inappropriate placements because they are about to "age out" of the system, therefore not worth the effort. My heart breaks for these children.

Why not make Neverland a home for some of these children. Set up as a non-profit organization, it could give children a second chance at childhood, at life. Wasn’t this why Neverland was built?

There is so much potential for good here.

I understand that the fate of Neverland is in the hands of family, executors, accountants and heaven knows who else. I feel that if I can get this idea out there far enough, someone will read it and catch the spark. If enough catch that spark, it just might glow all the way to those who could make it happen
The world doesn’t need another Graceland. The world needs more safe havens for children in need.

I believe Michael would agree.

Stacey   July 30th, 2009 1:32 am ET

I just want the family of MJ to admit those aren't his bio-kids!! Yes, they r his, but by choice..and there is nothing wrong with that.. It's even more human to accept a child that's not urs, but still feel the same way. But he didn't want black children, or his father's genes in them. Those kids r white. So I would say MJ was racist. He mearried 2 white women??

Tan   July 30th, 2009 1:32 am ET

I am so very saddened at the death of MJ and I feel for his children, his family and his fans. MJ dying the way he did it breaks my heart still to know that he is gone. It is still almost unbelievable.

Jen   July 30th, 2009 1:33 am ET

Listen people let the poor man rest, so what if he was an addict, he still was a good man. We all have some skeletons in our closets, so noone should be so quick to judge him.
It is ashame that all everyone seems to care about is who gets the money. Those babies should have it all.
And I'm not to sure what the deal was between him and Debbie Rowe, but however I'm sure the man would rather have them with her, than his no good father.
It would tramatized these children to change thier way of living,and they have enough trama now to deal with dont add more too it.

rubyrose   July 30th, 2009 1:33 am ET

yeah, why dont you do that special of michael jackson that highlights his contribution to pop culture, T.V. society, humanitarian, etc. would love to watch that.

shaynia   July 30th, 2009 1:36 am ET

Lots of things are being said about Michael's death but remember everything happens for a reason, and if God said it's time to take my son off the face of the earth then we can't do anything about it, all we can do is pray for the family so that they may survive throughout this tragedy. May God be with the family and we all should remember what God has done for us. He sent down Michael for us, some treated him well while others didn't but we should all focus on what he did while he was here and be proud and happy that we got to know him the true Michael Jackson not the "accused" Michael Jackson. May God bless and as Michael always say : "i love you all". Peace.

Tan   July 30th, 2009 1:37 am ET

Stacey why does it matter whether or not MJ's family admits if those are his kids are not? Will it change anything? The meaning of racist is hating other races besides your own, duh? CNN where do you find these people?

Nathalie B   July 30th, 2009 1:45 am ET

Oh my Elizabeth!!

I AGREE!!!!!!!!!!!
Why not help Michael Jackson's dream a reality? Healing the world. 🙂
I wish I could be someone who can be involved in the process!!
That's an amazing idea. I say put the rides back there! Bring back the steam engine train! and help the kids be kids!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Love the idea.

Larry King, you are right not one person who has spoke meant anything untill Gen. Powell spoke, now that is an honest man. He would be a great in office.
I have a challenge for you. I say that there is not one honest politician in the usa gov. that you can find, and no Gen Powell does not count he is not a career politician.
Good luck you won't find one if you do please tell me who that could be.


Pat   July 30th, 2009 1:52 am ET

in ref. to Dr Murray calling out for Prince: it was initially reported that Prince saw his father unconscious on the bed and thought he was playing a prank on him.

Farah   July 30th, 2009 1:53 am ET

I am a psychologist with a very good practice and YES I do know what I’m talking about regarding parenting! Discipline & meeting a child’s specifice needs are!!! Playing with your children does not make you a good parent!

I am a redhead that weighs 129 lbs and 5′7″ tall, so no I’m not obese!

I never said he ‘bleached’ his skin.

Wouldn’t it be nice to hear more stories about Walter Cronkite, Farrah Fawcett or Karl Malden? I don’t recall hearing either of them doing drugs or accused of child molestation.


U can not force people to talk about certain things. They will talk with which they can relate themselves to. So why don't u go to other blogs shared by likeminded people like u????

Ms. Nancy Jackson   July 30th, 2009 1:54 am ET

All this titilation about the biology of MJ's children, who will inherit (how much), will the biological mother seek custody, is she asking for money, etc. I turn your channel off as soon as I hear the word's "Michael"
Don't you people realize how hurtful this gossipying is/will be for these three/four children as they try to live their lives and mature? CNN, HLN, MSNBC and to some extent FOX are really milking this tragedy. You are showing your true colors!!


John (Canada)   July 30th, 2009 2:07 am ET

Dear Larry:

I'd like to take the opportunity, to make a kind plea.. I realize that Michael Jackson is a hot topic, but all the innuendo and speculation of drug use of Micheal, and his odd life and behavior is technically his life and no one else's business.. I'm sure is taking it's total on the children... Does anyone for one minute think that the kids aren't watching what is being said about their father, of course they are.. Remember no one is always whom they claim to be.. Everyone has a private side, Paris, Prince Micheal, and Blanket know only a Micheal Jackson, the world never knew!!! The kids knew the real Micheal Jackson... By the reaction of Paris at the memorial of her father he must have been an incredible father.. Please let him rest in peace!!! IT WAS AFTER ALL HIS LIFE!!! not our to gossip over

MariaA   July 30th, 2009 2:20 am ET

Larry King,

When I saw Deepak Choppra on tonight, I changed the channel immediately. With friends like him, who needs enemies?

I am so tired of hearing his voice. If he was Michael's friend, then he would be home grieving for him and not on TV revealing personal conversations to the whole world. His self-righteous attitude is unbearable.

Live and learn...

I am beginning to understand why Michael was feeling very lonely. Deep down he knew that he had no friends and no one, but he had to continue with them for survival purposes.

To all the fans, thank you for the love you are showing to Michael.

Brian   July 30th, 2009 2:30 am ET

Can someone tell me why Paris HIlton was at hsi house when thsi happened? Does anyone else think that's weird?

pam   July 30th, 2009 2:32 am ET

i can't help but wonder if they would have taken michael right to the hospital when this happened they might have been able to bring him back. dr murrey wasted to much time in the home cause he panicked and wanted to fix what he caused. if he were taken to the hospital sooner they could have given him shots of adrenalin into his heart, that would have brought him back. the same thing happened to nicki sixx and it worked for him. the doctor wasted to much time.

Farah   July 30th, 2009 2:35 am ET


I agree with your idea of turning Neverland into a non profit organisation for children. Michael all his life cared for humanity especially for children. I am sure Michael up there in heaven would love to see that happen.

Jaelle   July 30th, 2009 2:40 am ET

I simply cannot understand how all these people who say they love Michael Jackson are so willing to give their two cents, and comment to the media about something that could have legal ramifications. And just because they're willing to talk, doesn't mean you need to call it news. I'm sure this chef cared deeply for Michael and his family, but why does the world need to know this? Where is a family's privacy? Also, with all these people showing up on the talk show circuit, and having the media speculate, and speculate, if there were ever some sort of trial, how would they ever find someone on earth who had not already formed some sort of opinion. I really believe you need some new standards in broadcasting. Stick to the facts, and stop with the panel discussions asking people things like "So we don't know if this is true, but if it IS true, what do you think?" That's not news it's gossip and it needs to stop! It's probably what put Michael in this situation to begin with. Enough with 24 hour news that has so much time to fill with useless "experts". When you know it's a fact, fine, broadcast it, but until then, try to remember that you don't actually need to compete with TMZ because you run a reputable NEWS station. I used to love CNN but I'm getting pretty frustrated.

Twyla   July 30th, 2009 2:42 am ET

Was human and made a lot of mistakes like everyone else. Now let's just pray for the children because to lose a parent is devastating to anyone with a conscience. Katherine please use the"village " if you
need to when raising those kids to become normal functional people,
and I hope you get the funds you need now to support them-afterall working people understand it takes income to pay bills.

Also, it is unfortunate that the President Obama publicly spoke out
that incident with the professor being arrested, Obama try to slow to speak because there are many wolves ready to lay a trap for you and your staff members,

Dirty Diana   July 30th, 2009 2:44 am ET

That is a beautiful idea. Yes, I think that is what Michael would want as well. Hasn't it been that all along?

mvm   July 30th, 2009 2:48 am ET

All I can think of is that this was an accidental overdose.

Scenario: Dr. Murray injected drug into Michael Jackson's arm not knowing Jackson was either a) already on something; mixing drugs or b) injection dose was too high.

I can't imagine the hell Dr. Murray is feeling having the guilt of knowing that he did the injection, that ended up killing Jackson.

This also comes at a time when Obama pushes for radical heathcare changes in america. Not sure where the connection or answers are, but maybe after more revelation it will come.

Finally, is there any mercy for us who criticize Joe Jackson for his hard-heartedness? Sure, his timing is questionable, but I can't justify how folks can continue to bash him. He's still a father who grieves; and the same father of a musical icon that we all came to love. Let's extend a little more mercy.

Farah   July 30th, 2009 2:52 am ET


I think Diane has started blogging with a different name.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 30th, 2009 2:57 am ET

I loved Michael too. However, I personally do not believe that he'd want anything done with Neverland. Even though, at his death, he still owned an interest in the property, he died not wanted anything to do with Neverland. The molestation case ruined his love for the place. Furthermore, I hope the Jackson family does not have him buried there. Find another way to honor his memory.

Pellar   July 30th, 2009 2:58 am ET

Hi Larry,

It seems strange that there's been very little mention of the children's nanny, Grace. I've had the pleasure of meeting Grace on a couple of occasions and she was extremely loyal to the children and MJ. If anyone would have a lot to say, I would think it would be Grace - who has had a first-hand account of MJ's world for the past 12-15 years. So, forget the cook, the body guard, and the so-called "best" friends - Grace is the person I would love to see interviewed. Then again, as bright as she is, she may just hold out and resurface with a book deal.

SKT   July 30th, 2009 3:10 am ET

I have a hard time understanding how a person who talks back to the police deserves to be arrested. Have we been policed so much as a nation that we have forgotten even our most basic rights? Or have we simply exalted men/women in uniform to god-like stature . . . figures that we dare not question or criticize? Because whether we agree or disagree with the language Prof. Gates used when speaking to the officer, one thing has not been contested by either party. . . PROF. GATES WAS NOT COMMITTING A CRIME AT THE TIME HE USED SAID AGGREGIOUS LANGUAGE. Citizens! I know it’s hard to believe, but you do have the right to get mad at the police. If the police use foul language with you, you can respond in kind. Guess what . . . even if the police never use foul language, you can curse up a storm if you so choose. Cursing and the use of poor grammar are moral and linguistic issues only. They are NOT criminal. Handcuffs are not mufflers or irritant deterrents. They are one of many tools police officers have at their disposal for fighting crime. Not poor manners and bad grammar. Crime. And to the extent that it is uncontroverted that at most, Prof. Gates used bad language, then President Obama is correct in saying that the officers were stupid for arresting the man. It would have been merely silly to arrest him outside of his domain on a random street. It was positively idiotic to arrest the man while standing in his own home (keep in mind, the arrest came AFTER the officer was reasonably assured that Gates was in fact the owner of the home). Ladies and gentleman I submit to you, if a cop can’t handle name calling and ‘yo mama’ jabs, then he/she should not be a cop at all. Oh and please note: My argument was made without once bringing up the issue of race, which in my opinion, has only become an even bigger issue due to the limitless amount of hostile and hate filled arguments proclaiming or denying its very existence. In other words, if you really believe racism does not exist in America today, I implore you; reread the comments on this page. Because not only does racism still exist, it happens to be thriving in a gigantic bubble of denial.

Bella   July 30th, 2009 3:12 am ET

SO - what Michael's chef says about breakfast normally at 10a.m, but on 25 June Dr. Murray didn't come down until 12:05 or 12:10, which means two hours in between. This is the same as what the UCLA paramedics say about Micheal being dead at least two hours before being transferred to the clinic.



Samantha - South Africa   July 30th, 2009 3:16 am ET

Dr Murray wasted time because he had something to hide!Had he called 911 as soon as he saw that Michael was not responding,Michael would've probably been alive today.

Princess Anastasia   July 30th, 2009 3:32 am ET

Poor baby! What tragedy!...I have never thought that Michael could abandon this early...I was crying, when Paris began to emotional speech...

Didnt the caller say that there was noone else around apart for the physician? There is a lot of information that doesnt match. Will be interesting to listen to her on LKL.

She seems to be a very professional and talented woman but I am a bit sceptical....."Fit for a king" was that the name of the book she wanted to write..?

mojgan   July 30th, 2009 3:47 am ET

dear Larry

Please take a nice side for michael. we all love him and the world loves him no matter how hard the media tries to make it otherwise. Pls show us more about his music and his honest pure personality, Such a regret we lost him.

I believe MJ received poor medical care over the years. The majority of patients with chronic pain have a real medical problem, however it is usually mistreated by non-pain management trained physicians. Michael had a perfect reason /cause for development or progression of viitligo- burn or trauma to the head(Merck manual, medical articles) which occured during the making of the Pepsi commercial. He had multiple surgeries to the scalp and plastic surgeries which started the use of the narcotics- he developed physiological and/or pscychological dependence. He went to rehab- the correct thing to do, but he continued to get surgeries which meant continued narcotics for post-op pain. Once physiological dependence occurs and someone is placed in an emotional traumatic enviroment (the molestation charges and trial) the dependence deepens. These are all medical problems, not some weakness on the part of the person. If you understand the pain pathways and the impact on the brain, then the misconception can be eradicated.. None of his physicians evaluated him for his chronic pain syndrome, worked with his surgeons for non-narcotic post-op management and get him the correct rehab and or pain management in an established facitlity.
More importantly are all the signs of bipolar disorder-that Michael exhibited. The inability to sleep, up all night, excessive spending and staying up at night on trading on ebay(if this is true), history of Lupus(associated with psychological and neurological disorders). It is amazing that none of his doctors detected that he needed a comprehensive neuro-psychological evaluation. This situation is a medical madness, poor health management. The healthcare system failed him even though he paid a lot of money to have his own medical personnel..
My backgound is anesthesiology and fellowship training in Pain Medicine/management and Internal medicine. Many of the comments that are made on the TV are done by the family practice and internal medicine doctors, who never used Propofol, they are not familar with the drug and are way off base on the use of Propofol. They have not used the drug on a regular basis and are reading from the insert or PDR. I think that may be problem for Dr. Murray, he was not familar with the use of Propofol.
The problem is not with the drug or that it was used in a house. I am not saying it should be used in the house (that is prohibited), but that is not the problem.. The problem is that there was inadequate evaluation and monitoring of Michael. If he was given the drug and they did not have any emergency equipment (laryngoscope, ambu bag and largyngeal/endotracheal tube, respiratory support equipment, cardiac monitoring, and insufficient clinical/medical personnel to assist and monitor of the person getting the drug. Most likely MJ was dehydrated after 3 hours of performing,being volume depleted, he needed to be front loaded with IV fluid and monitored with pulse oximetry and end tidal CO2 , electrolyte studies, cardiac monitoring. Most likely he did could not tolerate the regular dose of the drug so respiratory depression occured. He had less volume to circulate the drug, and did not tolerate the regular dose (assuming he gave the drug before or if giving it the first time and was using the recommended dosage based on weight.). This was the perfect storm.
Pain Management physicians, Plastic Surgeons and other procedure related specialists use Propofol in their office and outpatient centers but they have the appropriate equipment, anesthesia machine and/or respiratory support equipment and clinical staff to help with adverse events and outcomes.
Vigilance, vigilance is the key objective used in Anesthesia, that is not what is taught in other specialities in Medicine(I know), so a non-anesthesiologist should not use an anesthetic drug that they don't use on a regular basis. Too many potential problems.
Rule #1 for Physicians. Do not use a drug if you can't manage the side effect of the drug. Obviously, Dr. Murray was not able to manage the airway or provide respiratory support for MJ. That is the ABC of ACLS, Airway management, Breathing then Circulation. He needed to get the breathing going unless, he got there too late to prevent death and recognised it as such. The big question is how long was Michael apneic(not breathing)??????? When was the last time he saw MJ take a breath. This is healthcare gone awry. ....This is such a sad situation.
I also feel for Dr. Murray, you can only understand , what he is going through, when you see patients you were taking care of die, it is a million times worse if your action may have caused the death. And devastating if the patient is a friend or family. A life slipping away from you, right out of your hand, in front of your face, is a horrible feeling. I am sure that Dr. Murray must be feeling horrible. I wish the press would stop all this sensationalization of Dr. Murray's personal issues and problems. That is unnecessary.

Lori   July 30th, 2009 3:58 am ET

It doesn't matter if MJ was a superstar. It doesn't matter if he had issues or not. It doesn't matter if he asked a Doctor to give him the propofol. HE DID NOT ASK THE DOCTOR TO KILL HIM. HE DID NOT PAY THE DOCTOR TO KILL HIM. THE DOCTOR WAS PAID TO KEEP HIM SAFE.

MJ was killed by a lethal injection of a substance that should not have been used outside of a proper medical setting and apparently every doctor in the country knows this.

MJ did not deserve to die. Someone is responsible and should be held accountable.

Junior   July 30th, 2009 4:02 am ET


The Chef"s story does not seem to make sense. She seems to know more than she's letting on. Is she being paid by AEG Live? What did she give MJ to eat and drink the night before and the morning of june 25th, 2009? Lastly who else was in the house. Why is the security team not talking. Why is AEG Live still paying MJ's security team to secure Dr Murray. Why is AEG Live paying for Dr. Conrad Murray's Defense team of attorneys? Where is the 911 caller? Why is he not talking?
Where is the security video surveillance of MJ home the day he was murdered? Why is the media not trying to discover its location? Is it a media coverup? Does Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live have a copy of this 24 hr video surviellance tape of MJ's home the day he was murdered, maybe he's trying to sell it to Sony Records for Top dollars?

It is a fact that AEG Live took out a Life Insurance Policy of 300, 000 million pounds( thats about $650 million dollars in US currency) on MJ 2 weeks before his death and paid DR Murray to pass Michael Jackson for that insurance physical, insured by Lloyds of London. That meens that AEG Live paid Dr Murray twice, one to be his personal 24/7 physician and the other to pass MJ for his physical.

It also seems odd that the underwriting clauses states the insured can not die of natural causes (when infact MJ was diagnosed with Lupus and Virtiligo by Dr Arnie Klein) yet it was Okay for the insured to die from an accidental drug overdose. This is what Media is leading the public to believe that MJ was a Junkie who killed himself ( which only the stupid viewers believe) Why because the owner of AEG Live, Phillip Anshutz is a Multibillionaire who owns many media companies and thus has alot of censorship power in the media.
Sounds like a conflct of interest and insurance Fraud.
It is an outright lie when AEG Live CEO,Randy Phillips stated that MJ wanted Dr Murray to be his personal doctor and met him in Las Vegas back in 2006 when in fact Michael Jackson was Bahrain from January to June of 2006 and then lived in Ireland from June to the end of December, 2006.

It is a fact AEG Live hired at least 7 doctors we know of, to drug and keep Michael Jackson in an unsound mental state to better control his finances and what MJ signed, maybe even a backdated will. We know that 19 doctors are being investigated by the DEA , how many of those Doctors were hired by AEG Live. Where is the FBI? Please carbon date test the original will to prove if the ink and paper was signed in 2002 and not 2009!

Dr. Tohme Tome was also hired by AEG Live to be his Financial Manager. Dr Tohme is not even a real Doctor. Yet it is a conflict of interest for a doctor to manage his patient's finances and prescribe drugs. Like Leonard Rowe stated on Larry King Live MJ previously dismissed many of these people and AEG Live hired them back to control MJ's finances.
Another fact is Dr Tohme tome turned in 5.5 million to attorney John Branca one of the executor's in MJ's will. He stated that MJ secretly gave him the money to buy a property in Nevada and call it Wonderland, is this not the name of a drug rehab center in California( it sounds like a bunch of BullSh-t to me) We know that MJ dismissed Dr Tohme Tome because he was double dealing with the owner of Colony Capital, Thomas Barack this is Real Estate Billionaire who bought Neverland out foreclosure( Neverland's next door neighbor). It is believed that Dr Tohme Tome is the one who introduced the Good heart Stopper to AEG Live and MJ. So, how much money did Dr. Tohme Tome actually steal? Why did Dr Tohme Tome fire everyone AEG Live hired the morning of June 25th, 2009, the day MJ was murdered?
The Last known fact, stated by CNN is that Frank Dileo manager of MJ, Also hired by AEG Live was called by MJ the early morning of June 25th 2009. He told Mr. Dileo he was sick and Mr Dileo instead of calling 911, he called the good heart specialist, Dr. Conrad Murray. Was Dr Murray, A mob doctor ( A cleanup specialist) ?
Maybe unknown fact to some is Mr Frank Dileo had Mob ties to the Gambino Crime Family one of the Five Crime Family of the Mafia. He was also MJ 's manager in the 1980's when he negotiated the company of publishing rights( included the sought after beetle's song rights by Tommy Matolla and Sony Records)with the help of who attorney John Branca, who is the executor on MJ's WIll. Mr Dileo was dismissed by MJ since 1989.and Leonard Rowe was the only Manager who had legal contract to manage MJ as confirmed by Larry King on July 20, 2009. Why did Frank Dileo sign the MJ's Death Certificate and not Dr. Conrad Murray ?

Good points!

Sheletta   July 30th, 2009 4:25 am ET

Hello Larry...
I like to answer a few comments that I've read on here.
Dirty Diana &Cocovelcent- Thre where articles that I read on TMZ, OMG and Yahoo, along with RollingStone, which did say that Dr Murray came at night and was saw leaving in the mornings with oxygen tanks. I felt that was unusual that she would say that. Them again, from what I read on Yahoo, she said Dr Murray, usually came down to get Michael Juice and Wheat Grains for his breakfast. I did not read that Dr Murray came in that morning. Seems like someone is trying to help another. Dr. Murray, himself told LAPD, that he was there the night before Michael's death, that he had given Michael the Diprivan early in the AM. and after he let the room.

Yazmeen- Michael was on a Healthty Diet. Him and the children where into being healthly people. Michael also was watching what he eat because by him being a danner he did not want his knees to camp when he is on stage. So basically it was not a diet just heathly foods.

Suzie & Dreama– I think that dicating a Larry King show just on Michael is a great Idea. Only, thing with that the show is not looking or talking about all Michael has contribute to charties, childrens and worldly contributions to help others in need. Everything, that they want to talk about is his past, and addiction to painkillers. I pray that he does read what you two have requested it truky would be a very nice thing especially for his children to know that some of us out there really care and appreciate what Michael had done here on earth.

Now, to the main issue at hand. The chef said that MJ, talk her into putting her meals into a cookbook. I am looking forward to see her this evening. There are too many version of the day Michael die. Now, one thing she said that I read about in TMZ, which one of the attorney's for the Jackson and indicated was that Dr Murray did ask the chef to get Michael's elder son, for what I assume was for witnessing that he was trying to bring Michael back. In other words covering his behind so to speak. The real question is what happen them early hours before he came half down the back stairs yelling for Michael's son. Who knows maybe she is trying to help Dr Murray.

The way I understand is that Dr Murray(Dr FeelGood), after adminstering the Diprivan, instead of staying in the room and montoring Michael, he left the room and really no one knows how long he had been gone and Michael's unattended. That's one question I will love to get to asked Dr Murray, if he ever came out of hiding and come on Larry King show. Another thing, Dr Murray, was not in a position to adminstrator Diprivan with a person with anestheislogist, which if memory serves me right he was neither.

After listening to Larry King and AC360, it kind of make you think about some points that was made yesterday. First, everyone assumes that Dr Murray was on Michael's payroll, he was being pay by AIG, the people who was promoting the concert. So, they truley need to correct that statement. Back to the issue at hand they said DR Murray started working for two months and that he had not been paid, so what I am picturing is maybe Dr Murray was pee off about that and really was not get a 100% personal care to Michael. Why, was there not a mention of monitors for monitoring Michael vital and Heartrate, BP, he is suppose to be a Medical profession that should had been something that could had been spotted right away. All, was seen was oxygen tanks. So, accourse Dr. Murray is a fault. One of the speakers said that he may not be charge if he did not know the risk, come on he is a Doctor and he should have comment sense to read the warnings on a cocktail that he is adminstrating to a patient. There, are going to be more stories as this case unfolds.

My heart goes out to Michael's children, who you can see truely love their father, Paris had me crying even more. First with Jennifer Hudson when she song one of Michael's song "Hold Me", so with that and Paris, I was a wreck. For a child to get that much courage, after her Father has pass and get upon all there and nationwide tv, will make your heart melt. I pray that they get strength, each and ever day. These children Lost their hold world right now and with Paris writing letters to her father everyday is sad and hurting to know this. The news say that they are happy playing with their cousins, which is cool, but at night or morning they are sad by not seeing their father ever again. Michael may be gone in body, but in spirit he is watching over his children each and everyday, even if they have not bury in yet.

Someone made a comment about his Mother not satified about her 40%. That is not it, what she is trying to do is look out for her son's
Estate, making sure that they don't make a decision that will effect the estate. Beside's I see nothing wrong that her Attorney's/Kather Jackson, wants to know what Michael estate is really worth. If the contracts he signed or money for royality are being applied to his estate. There is a lot of money floating and no one wants to give answers. Also the home she lives in is part of the Will Estate as well. So, no I don't blame her one bit. There's the children's interest as well, that need to know it will be there. So, don't be so hard on Mrs Jackson. Until next time Peace

Michael I pray that you may get the chance to rest in peace, something that you never got here. A Fan 4 Ever with Love

Sheletta   July 30th, 2009 4:30 am ET

lori- My hand goes up to you. Michael did not asked to not be here doing his Concerts in London right now. Instead Dr FeelGood mess up and took him away from family as well as his Fans. So Thank you for that comment.

Farah   July 30th, 2009 4:36 am ET

Mike the Canadian,

Your post seems to give me the impression that you are infected with green eyed mosnster. So you expected MJ to live a life of a pauper, after all that dedication and hard work? Why are you forgetting his most generous charities to ensure that others have a share in his hard work as well?

Agreed thousands of children are orphaned daily. But we are concerned with MJ's children because MJ touched ourlives. U really suck Mike. Rock MJ

Maria , Romania   July 30th, 2009 4:40 am ET

Did Michael had a depression? So much pain in his life , dramatic genius , do the people really understand you dear Michael?

Jacquelyn   July 30th, 2009 4:42 am ET


So did he love those 2 white women or did he use those 2 white women? Here you have a white woman who wanted to sell her kids to a man who wanted it, that was on Debbie not Michael. Plus Angelina and Madonna adopted 2 black children so I guess they are racists as well. They dont have to tell the public nothing its not our business, especailly yours. And if he hated blacks so much why did he leave 2 black women in charged of his "white" kids? Please you have some nerve.

cecilie   July 30th, 2009 4:47 am ET

It's ironic that Dr. Murray alleges that MJ owed him 2 months pay ($300,000), but owes 2 months worth of mortgage payments himself for his home, and to me, this is a motive to do what I believe that he did. Refer to Youtube and watch the final rehearsal in comparison to his rehearsals from prior looked like his movements were delayed and the expression on his face when the lighting faded was chilling to me. (it doesn't fade to black where you can't see his face) It makes me wonder if he was medicated prior to rehearsal and during rehearsal had began to feel the effects there of. I hope that everything in the dark will be manifested, and everyone who were involved will have their day in court and behind bars.

Mary Alcindor   July 30th, 2009 4:48 am ET

We know most of the story of Crowley and Gates. Why did Officer Crowley get into training Diversity? Where did he aquire his training? Diversity training is not same as Anti-Racism. Was Crowley involved in any previous altercation with visible minorities, that necessitated him to receive and deliver such training? We know of acceptance behaviour, but sometimes under duress, stress etc., Human beings or even animals for that matter can go out of line. For those who blame the President for his comment, which appeared to have offended even Black Officers too. He did not call the Officer or the entire police force "Stupid. He simply referred to the "Action taken" by the officer was stupid. Maybe, he shouldn't have responded to the Reporter, except to say, it's not in his jurisdiction.
It appears that Crowley's diversity training does not include Anti-Racism, Sensitive, Empathy & Conflict Resolution. Otherwise, his approach towards an upset individual was insane. He showed no discretion & empathy for Gates, even after he saw the ID and realized that Gates was locked out after a long trip. Just an acknowledgement could have defused the anger. " I understand you're angry, but I am responding to a possible burgler call, if you could calm down,show me your ID and I'll be out of here." As soon as he was satisified with the ID stretch out his hand for a hand shake. Say "so long and sorry for the distrubance." Vacate the house. Police must be human too.
Why did Crowley not put some of the techniques he learnt and preaches into practice. Crowley's reaction trippled argumentative&aggrassive behavour, resulting negative responses.

Lisa   July 30th, 2009 5:02 am ET


I would like you to ask her why she was sacked by Michael?

Adele C - MJ and family fan forever   July 30th, 2009 5:06 am ET

I also am a Michael Jackson fan, and very much hurt by his death as though I am a family member. I think about his kids as they were a well loved relative. I also know that I am not a member of his family only a well loved fan. This is so sad whatever way you put it, and it is also their life this is what happens when everyone has an opinion. I donot know what happen or how it happen but I am so very hurt and sadden. Yes I would love to know what is going on with his kids are they happy, because they will not ever forget that day that led up to his death. They will need love, guidance and much understating from friends and love ones. Michael tried his best to keep the kids from all this now look what happens. How are they going to be able to trust anyone the only true person in the world they trusted is gone. This is a very sad world and has been for a long time since the beginning of time, but I will choose to love from my heart. Please people do the same stop throwing stones one day the stones may land in your own back yard.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 30th, 2009 5:06 am ET

Junior - who are you? I mean, who are you really?

Blondee   July 30th, 2009 5:07 am ET

What world does Larry Elder live in? I am appalled that in America the land of the free and home of the brave that a taxpaying citizen can be harassed by the police in their own home after providing ID and taken to jail after requesting the badge # and name. Was Gates taken to jail to cover up the policeman's mistake? It seems like the officer resented Gates exercising his right to request and receive that information, The officer incited the situation and Graves to get the monkey off of his back. What creditability would a person's word have if they are arrested for disorderly conduct. Brilliant strategy Mr. policeman. Why in a press conference about health care would a reporter ask about the Gates situation? Was Obama being set up? What would have happened if he had pulled a Bush and said next? Who are the Cambridge police department that they can fix their mouths to ask for an apology from the holder of the highest office in the USA? In some countries to insult the ruler, president, or king would be a punishable offense. Does he not have those inalienable rights that our fore-fathers fought for; one being Freedom of Speech. Bush went down in history for being the worst President. Would he have been asked to apologize in the same situation. NO!!! and he would not do it.. Is this about RACE!!!!? YES. UNTIL WE LEARN THAT WE ARE ALL A PART OF GOD RACE OF PEOPLE THE HUMAN RACE AND TREAT EACH OTHER WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY; IT WILL ALWAYS BE ABOUT RACE.

Mary Alcindor   July 30th, 2009 5:21 am ET

By the way, we all understandthat Gates was perhaps angry. Being a professor does not mean that he knows how to deal with situations as such, when confronted. He may need a short course in Anger Management and Conflict Resolution.
Even though it appears to me that Officer Crowley had all the Diversity training, but he failed to put his techniques into action when it was warranted. Instead, the Officer instigated more harm, not only to Gates and himself, but to the Good Samaratan Woman who was doing her civil duty. Because of this confrontation resulting in the arrest of the Professor, brought out an outcry on Anti-Racism. Somehow, I get mixed signals here. The Officer was not completely honest and fair to even the Woman caller since he reported on his report that the woman made the comment that there were two Blackmen. I applaud this Woman. Therefore; Crowley should be held responsible for the racially allegation and warrant some form of disciplinary action. Crowley going on TV to say that he did not vote for President Obama was not called for. A Vote is a Secret. Saying so, proves his underline prejudices. Teaching Diversity, does not mean one has no prejudices. Maybe, Crowley needs to have a talk with Tim Wise.
Sooner or later, Professor Gates will vacate his home citing Michael Jackson, that it is not longer seen as "Home Sweet Home", due to the disrespect he encounted by Crowley. Grant you, I am not saying that Gates was not responsible too, perhaps he was a bit cocky and that is why Crowley with that specific Conflict resoulation traings, shoud have reacted in a more responsive manner.

Larry in 1961 with all of similar crap going on ie phobia about black people gaining some respect from the police,remember?

People fail to realize that not one person from MJ's family is in control of his Will and his Estate . Whoever is in charge of MJ's Will, will be in charge of his money and assets. Those people are the Executors of the Will and the Trustees of his Estate who conveniently are only Lawyers John Branca and John Mcclain, and Barry Siegal ( Whom may have pulled himself out). Why are they blocking Katherine Jackson from being a Executor and Trustee of the Estate of her own Son, Michael Jackson? Because the executors of MJ's Will and The Trustees of Estate(who are all the lawyers listed above)controls how MJ's Publishing rights, Neverland Property and any money is divided, to whom his land and asset is sold too and how it is divided up. They can even open up new companies in MJ name without permission from his family. If they lets say don't want to give his mom and children money, they do not have to because they are the sole controllers of the Will and the Family Trust. This is why this will seems like a part of the Conspiracy that Murdered Michael Jackson. Because there is know way if MJ was in a sound state( free of drugs) of mind he would put only attorneys instead of his Mother (whom he loved so much) as the only executors to his will and the only trustees to his Estate. It seems Criminal that any court in America would not question this.
If you don't believe me read copy of MJ Last Will and Testament and The Michael Jackson Family Trust on the Internet or on CNN.Com for yourself !

such a sudden loss.. Thanks Mr.King for your continous coverage on Mr.Michael Jackson..
Your show contains an objective view..I am sick and tired of bad tabloids..

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 6:18 am ET

Janice, did you notice how all the legal eagles that were on AC360 last night said that Mrs. Jackson did not have a leg to stand on? Why would MJ have made it so his moher would not have a say in his business dealings. It is apparent that she was involved in every business deal her son had. Furthermore, look at published comments by Tom Meserau he states that Mrs. Jackson was with MJ each day of the trial. Why wouldn't he want her here? I think that they don't want Mrs. Jackson there because they have something to hide. Sounds like a conspiracy to me.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 6:21 am ET

That should read Junior, sorry. It's still to early.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 6:32 am ET

Malaika–it sounds as if AEG owns everything and I hope that this is not a major cover up I was particulary peeved last night when those legal eagles said that Mrs. Jackson did not have a legal leg to stand out. All she wants to do, I believe, is to expose AEG for what they really are. She has every right to those contracts. Hopefully the judge will see it that way.

Malaika Afrika   July 30th, 2009 6:43 am ET

Adrienne- hv u noticed that they always hv pple on who are baised against the Jackson family? even on LKL? u rite Mrs jackson has every right to Michael's Estate!

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 6:49 am ET

yes and on AC360. Not one of the legal experts felt that Mrs. Jackson has any rights. I am really tired of Jeffrey Toobin. Why can't they have some people like Tom Meserau or even someone totally uncommitted to either side.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 6:52 am ET

*There are two Maureens sending blogs.
Worrying reading about Frank DiLeo. I read an article in the Smash Hits special Mj edition, whereby the British reporter travelled to the U.S. to do an interview with MJ during his concert tour, had to do the interview with DiLeo cos he said MJ was too busy. I think MJ would have found a few minutes for the interview but DiLeo wanted control. That way he could make a name and fortune for himself. Too many ppl, wanting too much control, making too much money from much so, that MJ's best interests were compromised.
Deepak Chopra
Is starting to talk rubish about MJ. Could it be that there will be some misleading headlines on the way ( £). I never read them.
Joe Jackson
MJ's other son. I think joe reffered to him as mJ's son metaphorically. But really meant he was one of the family because they've known him well, for so long. i don't think he meant to cause an uproar.
I could believe that the Dr came in the mornings. Maybe that's when he would help Mj if he hadn't slept well. That is certainly when the panic started.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 6:58 am ET

I also agree that Leanard Rowe was hired as manager by Mj and has a contract to proove it. Someone said AEG will not allow anyone to see their contract,. Is this true ?

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:05 am ET

Maureen, I am glad that someone else believes me that Leonard Rowe was hired by MJ. There is a "supposed" letter that was sent to LR stating that he was no longer needed and if he needed to contact MJ he needed to do it through his manager. I thought that was a pretty hateful note. I saw t on Radar Online. I think may have been forged or not sent., Yes, it is true that AEG won't let the Mrs. Jackson have acopy of the contract unless she signs a confidentiality agreement. I think this is just a cover up.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:08 am ET

Maureen, what I didn't like about Dileo was that he had to tell the children that their father died. Why are all these "friends" telling the children things that need to be told by family?? Wasn't Frank Dileo just recently brought back??

Sagacity   July 30th, 2009 7:16 am ET

This is only the start. The same person who poisoned Marilyn M and shot JFK is at it again. NOW they got Jacko. Maybe YOU are next!'

It is a shame for the kids, now they will have to deal with a real nut-ball family– for a long, long, time or until the money runs out.

I dont understand how a doctor that Michael trusted with his life and who understood the dangers of using Diprivan could have administered it in such a casual manner and in doing so taking away a father not only to his children that he absolutely adored but also of the world – who suffered along side the underprivileged and sick. Has America and the rest of the world gone mad and lost all its values for greed and fame. Michael was and always be the true hero and America cast one of its own out by humiliating, ridiculing and disrespecting him time and time again, when you should have protected and treasured him. You should have been proud of a small boy from a poor background that grew up giving so much of his personal life to the world, to humanity, to inspire and touch each everyone of us personally. He was intelligent, a true gentleman with true values, noble, funny and understood love at is purest. Michael was proud of his heritage, of his family and the fact that he could give back and make someone else happy and that whatever he did, he did with perfection. He used every public appearance to appeal to humanity to save the world and those living in it and in private worked to achieve it. He found it unbearable that the people surrounding him could ever believe that he was capable of anything but the truth which is something he lived by. He was manipulated by the media and anyone that wanted to use him for various reasons which forever changed him – you should be ashamed of yourselves. There are very few humans that have the capability to bring the whole world, all nations together, UNITED and all he wanted was to be blanketed by the world and especially America and be told – We love you more, Michael . May his message of love, peace, equality, respect, happiness and our duty to help our fellow man BE always remembered and passed on to the next generation because there will never be another soul like Michael Joseph Jackson, EVER.

What about Joe Jackson's comments on Omer Bhatti.

Is he a FOOL or something???

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:27 am ET

I couldn't believe it either. This is really strange bc last week he said that he could not answer either way as he might be sued. Could it be that he is angry at Mrs. Jackson because she is trying to get a copy of the contract that Mr. Jackson had with MJ??

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 7:31 am ET

Due to time differences I always tape Larry King Live.

I watched Deepak Chopra. Larry should invite him more, he seems to be very integer. I think he was right on the spot, talking about MJ's tortured soul. I think it is important that people are brought to justice, but behind all of this there has been a tremendous loneliness, sadness, obsession, self-destruction, addiction, heartbreak and so forth. I cannot think too long about or I get sad myself. And I even did not know the man. Chopra seemed sincerely sad as well.

This weekend in Israel Uri Geller's Tribute to MJ will be aired. I saw already a preview, Uri was crying all the time.

I prefer Deepak Chopra. It is a pity he could not help Michael.

I have the feeling Joe is playing a game. It is such a dysfunctional family. I found out even Jermaine in the nineties put a song on his album slandering Michael.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:36 am ET

Chopra did seem very sad. I don't think I could watch a tribute by Uri Geller. I am still angry at how he could have introduced MJ to Martin Bashir and Martin Bashir doing what he did to MJ. That is unacceptable.

MJ had a lot of people who really loved him( i.e. Dick Gregory, John Landis, and others). I get really upset that his "people" kept them out. MJ would be here today if it weren't for some greedy folks.

Malaika Afrika   July 30th, 2009 7:39 am ET

Adrienne...everything Mr L Rowe said on LKL the other night made total sense 2 me, i never doubted Mr L Rowe & Mr Joe Jackson, i knew thr wr telling the truth. i think half the pple Larry is hvn on LKL r connected in same ways 2 AEG, they all tryin to cover up AEG's behind.

Ericka   July 30th, 2009 7:42 am ET

This is a tragic situation no matter how you look at it. Not only have these children lost their father, but the media is making a mockery of his life. Michael Jackson was a person and somehow in this spectacle that seems to have been forgotten. I don't understand why the child molestation charges are being mentioned every time the media references him. What does that have to do with his death? There is all this media speculation about him not being the biological father of those kids. Why does it matter? For the last 12 years he has been the only loving parent known to them and according to everyone ever interviewed, being a parent seems to be the thing he was best at. Why is it so unbelievable that he was a loving father? Some media outlets and sick people are posting just despicable comments about Michael not understanding this information will be out there forever. Did the thought ever occur that his children have already had enough grief and will be even more emotionally disturbed by this? These are real people not just stories. I pray for the Jackson family because no matter what you may think of them the loss of a loved one is never easy especially when it is unexpected. Michael Jackson was a person forever changed by his upbringing, not saying it was good or bad, but it obviously had tons to do with how he matured as an adult. He was very childlike and the world did not understand that so people feel it must have been something wrong with him. Not the case. We cannot slap labels on people just because we don't understand them. Yes, he may have had problems with prescription drugs, but look how he has been treated the last 10 years, can you blame him? I would not imagine it's a very loving feeling to have half the world turn on you after loving you your whole life. Sadly, hopefully he will be able to rest now even though I know it breaks the hearts of his children, family, and millions of others that still love him today. I pray the negativity will end so the healing for everyone can begin.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:48 am ET

The more I hear about Dr. Murray. The more I get disgusted. Now it is being reported that he bragged that he worked with MJ to the other people at the rehearsals and that the people found him overbearing. It is obvious that he meant to control MJ. I have no doubt in my mind he gave him the diprivan and also is responsible for the needle marks. I think that he involved the kids because he knew that the kids would go and tell the truth and he wanted to cover his butt. I don't believe for a second that he would take drugs knowing that he had 3 chldren that who loved him dearly( and vice versa). He was too healthy. I think that they were given to him. I also think that is the case with Grace the Nanny. The kids know something. ONe of them refused to speak to her. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Paris. I think she knows a lot of what is going on. I think people pumped the guy with drugs when MJ thought they were helping him. I am really mad that this case is only focsing on MJ. I think that Dr. Klein is just as involved. Instead of the media reporting that MJ doctor shopped. MJ was shopped by doctors. He had a lot money and people took advantage of it. The sad thing was that he was unable to have the people who truly loved MJ around to help him. He was controlled. I am a firm believer that the truth will come out. IT may take a while but the truth will come out. I will pray every day that justice is served. I will also fast on Thursdays and Sundays in MJs memory and to support Dick Gregory until this matter is resolved. This won't bring back MJ, but it will restore his legacy and give the children and family some closure.

Cocovelvet   July 30th, 2009 7:50 am ET

IS THIS MAN JOE JACKSON OUT OF HIS MIND!!!!????....My goodness!!..I couldnt believe my ears when I heard him in that interview stating that OMER is MJ's son. I mean he just cant be serious coz the way he was grining at that journalist with that evil grin of his at the end of saying that can't mean anything but absurd.

At some point I had felt pity for Joe Jackson thinking that the media are a bit hard on him, but with this statement about Omer, he made me reversing my mind to think that he actually deserves it.


Anyway, i think also this JJ is just trying to make the media to go absolutely bonkers with the whole issue so that the Media won't know where to start and which story to trust anymore.


Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:53 am ET

Malaika- I agree. I hope that Larry does not mess up this interview with the chef tonight. I hope, just hope that Al Sharpton has something to say, too.

Cecilia   July 30th, 2009 7:54 am ET

You can remove my message of the blog please, I do not mean to offend anyone.

Donna   July 30th, 2009 7:55 am ET

I think it is ironic that the doctor would be bring oxgen tanks in and out the house for days but say, "He didn't administer any drugs"? That is a shame for him. Why didn't he just stay there or was he there to get money for his own use. When you are a theif or money hungry you will do anything to satisfy you thirst. Dr. Murray was acting on the tip that he could come out on top if Michael would give him the money he needed.

It was a good thing that someone else had the money in the black trash bag that Laytoyta talked about and may Dr. Murray knew of it was looking for it and it would have been a matter of time before he found the money and paid off his debts.

mariau   July 30th, 2009 7:56 am ET

i feel so sad for them and it's abosulutely true that doctor called prince to watch his father dying. He is ridiculous.
i remember they said that Michael died with empty stomach and they speculate that Michael is anorexic..
but for sure, he had empty stomach because mayber he is died earlier maybe 4 or 3 hrs. im not sure.
if kai chase said she michael with good eating habbit..
the only reason of his death "propofol"..
it's really sad to hear paris, calling daddy, daddy, daddy, i'm totally heart broken..
to adrienne, jacquelyn, michele canada, stu, hungary and linda from new york.. hi to all of you

Tommie   July 30th, 2009 7:56 am ET

Why do people(i.e. Diane) shoot off at the mouth, then whine about their 1st amendment rights when they are strongly disagreed with and attacked verbally. Isn't that a bit hypocritical?

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 7:59 am ET

Cocovelvet– where did you hear this about the plastic surgery? I agree that MJ had plastic surgery, but I believe what the plastic surgeon said was that Dr. Klein gave MJ the wrong type of cream/medication that made his skin porcelain. I wouldn't be surprised if he recommended that to MJ so that he could put him under and get him addicted to diprivan. I think that Klein is just as guilty. He's probably working for AEG and Sony, as far as I am concerned. Dr. Klein is a slimeball,who took advantage of MJ, too.

sylvia   July 30th, 2009 7:59 am ET

I still couldn't get over the sadness. God bless MJ's lovely childrens. Michael, RIP.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 8:03 am ET

Iguess that wasn't shown in the states. I won't watch it. I have mixed feelings about Dr. Chopra. I think needed to be a bit mindful what he was talking about on tv. I always worry about Mrs. Jackson and the children– what they know or do not know.

Judi   July 30th, 2009 8:05 am ET

They say that when something happenes in groups of threes, something good is going to happen. Since Michaels death, I have two other aquaintances who have died suddenly, and left three children behind, being an orphan myself, I know what it is like to be without parents. I am a little over a year older than Michael was, and was born in the same state, so I feel a connection with him. While I am saddened greatly by the passing of this wonderful gifted human being, my greatest concern is for his children. I hope they are not exposed to the same kind of life he had.

Cocovelvet   July 30th, 2009 8:05 am ET




Get out of my face URI GELLER and you should be ashamed of still refering to yourself as MJ'S friend and going around pretending to be sad about his death.

Yara King   July 30th, 2009 8:10 am ET

I just want to say, the Dr. Murray killed Michael. He look like an ambitious man who is willing to do anthing to keep rich. He's a heart doc. who show have know better. He should have call 911 instead of waitng for security to do that. I feel that Michael had die long before he came down. It could have been the food that he put the drug in. He is just a greedy man who wanted more money. I think this was not his first time. This time it turn out bad. If I was going through the same pain as Michael, I would do the same. Dr. Murray is guilty as sin.

Kris   July 30th, 2009 8:13 am ET

Couple of questions; Last night a doc on one of the shows said that being under anesthia like Diprovan affects the body much differently than true sleep. It has been reported numerous times that MJ had problems sleeping. I wonder if Dr. Murray or any other Dr. that gave him diprovan told him that he wasn't really sleeping and the difference of being "under" vs. sleep?? If you are not really asleep, and spend hours being "under" as MJ has been reported to have done, would you really wake up from it with the same renewing effects as sleep? or could your body systems actually still be tired?
Also being reported were the numerous narcotic pain medicines under aliases that he used, and that he had had addiction to this for a long time. It seems like someone, one of the Dr's, or friends that knew how bad his problem was, would have recommended that he should go on a Methadone or Suboxyn maintenance program, or which many people who have addictions to opiates, including pain meds like Oxycontin and Demerol-not just heroin utililize. Addicts are able to get their dose based on the amount of meds they were taking, and can increase to a certain number of ml's or decrease, all under a Dr's care. This treament also alleviates the need to Dr. shop, use aliases, or have one person to get pain meds for someone else because it is a legal treatment that can be ongoing and users don't have to worry about how they will get more (pain meds) when they start to run out, because they receive the dosage they need. And you don't have to go to a Methadone clinic to get it either, there are Dr's treating addiction that can prescribe it in various forms. Methadone is also used for chronic pain, not just addiction.

Thank you for this ray of sunshine (blog) in the midst of all this negative "media" darkness.

Shelby67   July 30th, 2009 8:25 am ET

I agree with Suzie...but I would like to see the footage of Michael visiting hospitals and orphanages....helping people...all the humanitarian work he did. WONDER WHY THE MEDIA ISN'T SHOWING THIS STUFF????? and better yet....WILL THEY EVER???!! Where is the special night or "THS" (True Hollywood Story) about this stuff?? Spread messages of love and not HATE! Nah...doesn't make for good ratings. Imagine that.

What I have learned from the arrest of the black professor is to not call the law if you see a possible break in unless the culprit is lily white.

Shawn Kingston   July 30th, 2009 8:43 am ET

Blacks are the most racist people. Why is everything not in their favor "racist"? We give them the presidency and it's still not enough

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 8:44 am ET

If I understand well from her story then Murray came in daily at around 9 a.m. So this means he usually did not stay the night over? Did he administer propofol, time set, and then come back?

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 8:46 am ET

As for Chopra, one can argue if he should say things center stage, but at least he calls a spade a spade. That what has been lacking the last 10 years, nobody dared to say or do anything. As a result everybody was waiting for somebody else to step in and in the end the waiting became too long.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 8:56 am ET

I think it's really worrying that when Joe Jackson & Leonard Rowe spoke on the LKL programme, there were lawyers on the programme attacking their comments and no lawyers looking at & defending their point of view. They had a contract expressing Mj's wishes for L. Rowe to be his manager. They said they had sent him a letter to say that his services weren't needed, but if this was true, it would have required L.Rowe's signature. L. Rowe never received the letter & I believe him. Can he have some legal experts on the programme please ?
MJ's will
No one but the Jackson family should have any say in MJ's future record releases, DVD's, especially the recent concert footage , or anything else, to do with MJ. The lawyers involved at the moment should be dismissed, cos MJ dismissed them himself previously.

buckwheat   July 30th, 2009 8:58 am ET

It is hard to believe that no one blames Michael Jacksons death on Michael Jackson. This doctor will be spread out on a butcher block and cut up piece by piece with the media's backing and will take blame for this whole fiasco. He certainly was not there without being asked by Michael Jackson to do the job he seems to have been doing.I have been put to sleep several times in a hospital and I signed a paper every time accepting the fact that I might not wake up. I feel that the doctor needed something desperately and MIchael needed something desperately. One is dead the other might just as well be.

Cee Cee   July 30th, 2009 8:59 am ET

Jeannie Enright – there's enough negativity surrounding Michael's death. On the positive side, remember Michael was raised as a JEHOVAH'S WITNESS but strayed. If he didn't want his children to be raised as such, he would not have stated in his will that he wanted them to be in the custody of his mother, knowing she is a Jehovah's Witness who regularly attends meetings at the Kingdom Hall which includes learning about the resurrection (Acts 24:15). Michael knew that the only way his children would see their father again (if he preceded them in death) would be when he is resurrected (brought back to life) to live forever in paradise on earth (Psalm 37:29 & John 5:28,29). At which time he and his children would be able to live at peace, even with the animals, without fear of harm (Isaiah 11:6-9) which Michael loved so much. This is what Michael knew and he would want his children to be there with him. This is much more important than celebrating holidays. Michael may be a lot of things, but he is not stupid! I hope I'm there to welcome him back to life in Paradise on Earth.

Linda from New York   July 30th, 2009 9:02 am ET

I couldn't beleive Joe Jackson went on national television and said what he did. Why is wrong with him; the media is already having a field day trying to ridicule him, he gets ammunition everytime he opens his mouth. Basically, I think that Joe Jackson needs to be coached prior to any meeting with the media. Deepak Chopra is unbelievable–Where does he get off talking about Michael like that. Even if were true, which I doubt–What king of a friend goes on National TV and say that about another friend? Uri Geller is a piece of s--–t. He sold out Michael to Martin Bashir for $500,000. Both he and Deepak Chopra needs to go back under their rock.

Yolanda from Fort Lauderdale Florida   July 30th, 2009 9:16 am ET

My prayers go to Katherine Jackson, Joe Jackson, and the Jackson
brothers and sisters. I feel that they are the only one who have lost their loved one. Everyone else follows for the goodies.

Katherine my prayers are with you and your family only.

Linda from New York   July 30th, 2009 9:22 am ET

I don't understant why Michael Jackson is being blamed for his own death. He is perfectly fine at rehearsal one day and within 24 hours he is dead. Dr. Murray was the last one with him-Connect the Dots.

kelly   July 30th, 2009 9:28 am ET

Michael had an addiction. He needed treatment! He did not need a Dr. that would feed the addiction.
I've had several surgeries where I've been knocked out...I never feel rested when I wake up, I feel groggy...Michaels insomnia and addiction had him believing that the only way he could sleep was with drugs. sad that no one helped him

georgie   July 30th, 2009 9:40 am ET

I think we should all let MJ rest in peace, everyone knows by now that he had an addiction to drugs, this is a illness the same as being an alcoholic.

We all are aware that this is considered an illness.

Just get on with getting the drug pushers, it just so happens to be doctors.

Dave Gormley   July 30th, 2009 9:43 am ET

How can those kids be ichael Jacksons biological children...they have blue eys and light, caucasian hair...why has tyhis not been picked up...?

TW   July 30th, 2009 9:43 am ET

What a nice story about the environment of the children's daily lives. But, how terribly traumatic for them too. My heart continues to break for them, and I pray that the media will come to their senses, have remorse for the torment they instilled upon MJ and his family, and allow his children, now, to remember their father for the good that he was able to do in this world. They, and MJ's family deserve the respect that Michael never got while he was with us. Showcase the good, and leave everything else be already, none of that matters.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 9:46 am ET

@Buckwheat, if I jump from a building, do you jump too? MJ manipulated people into enabling him, but that doesn't mean what Murray did was acceptable.

@ Linda,
IMO MJ wasn't perfectly right during the rehearsal. I just don't believe it. Okay, he was not near death, but the fire was completely gone. He never would have made it to 50 concerts. I think he was spared from a collapse on stage.

bella   July 30th, 2009 9:46 am ET

How come some one paying as much as 150k/month for a professional doctor to take care of him, just to be killed by the doctor – now the one to get the blame.

It just doesn't make sense to me at all. Put your position in his shoe, and THINK twice.

coachrm   July 30th, 2009 9:48 am ET

buckwheat – my thoughts exactly. The media has convicted the doctor on TV without any evidence, authorities are focused only on him. Mr. Jackson has abused his body for too long and the body can only take so much. Now everyone is looking to lay blame on someone – why not lay the blame at the root – the real cause of Michael Jackson's death was the "man in the mirror."

Bruce   July 30th, 2009 9:50 am ET

Why are his Kids White with blue eyes?
Don't we all think this is strange?

Maggie Egan   July 30th, 2009 9:51 am ET

Breaking news - Katherine Jackson gets full custody of Michael's kids..thank god! The other women is a stranger to those kids. It would be like you or I asking for custody for them. Even though I would love them to death! They are adorable, sweet hearted kids. Michael you did a great job in raising them! They are now surrounded by family who loves them. Hopefully this new way of life becomes one for them in which they can be themselves and just take a trip to WalMart on their own, if they want. Looks like Lisa Marie is living that way now and semi out of the spot life. That to me would freedom for them in which they were never exposed to.

Everything happens for a reason and I think god new of Michael's self destructive ways. No one wanted him to die and I still wish he was here, but I find solice in the fact that his kids are fine and will grow up knowing what a great gifted talent their dad was. It was truly a god given talent that he had.

Love you Michael! "I love you more"..MJ

Alice St-Louis (Chelmsford,ON Canada)   July 30th, 2009 9:53 am ET

It seems as though I can not hear enough news of Michael. My heart cries with every piece of information given about him. I feel so terrible about his children. So young and have to be put through, basically, a media circus. This ongoing custody battle, I know must be taking a piece of them everyday. Leave them where they are now, with the Jackson family, this is the closest thing to their father. If anyone cares about the health and stability of the children they will leave this alone. Mother, so she calls herself, shame on you, leave them where they are, can you not see how well they are there. If you, as a mother care about your children, I am sure you can see this is the best home they can be in (with the Jacksons).

Melissa   July 30th, 2009 9:55 am ET

So sad. Thank you for sharing this with everyone.

The behavior of this doctor is more and more questionable and suspicious. It sounds more like purposeful manslaughter, if not murder to me. He had ample motive and his behavior was very strange before the event.

clc   July 30th, 2009 9:56 am ET

Sound like she was told what to say and how to say all this.

Janith   July 30th, 2009 9:57 am ET

God bless these children. I pray that they are not aware of some of the horrible things that have been said about their father. As for rather or not Micheal Jackson is their biological father what business is this of anyone other than these children. Many people have speculated upon this and my question to these individual is have you never seen Black people who look like they are white? I have I have two neices who are mixed and if they did not tell you they were Black you would not know. It takes more than biology to be a parent. Micheal was their father and they loved him. End of discussion. As for the rest of the Jackson family I pray for them. They have lost a loved one. No matter what disagreements family have when it all boils down to it, it is still family.
We the public have only lost an entertainer, but these people have lost a father, son, brother and uncle. I am not a Witness, but I have several friends who are. I find them to be loivng kind and have values that are more Christian than many who are not of their faith. May God give all of themthe strength they need to get throught the difficult times ahead.

Alice St-Louis (Chelmsford,ON Canada)   July 30th, 2009 9:57 am ET

The sadness I feel by Michael’s death can not be described in words. I also was born in the 50’s I grew up with Michael and his music. The day he passed on was as though I lost a piece of myself with him. My boys tell me I am obsessed with Michael. It is far from being an obsession it is a feeling of GUILT. As many others, I could have taken the time to show my love and belief in him. But, but, but, if, if, if, is always what it boils down to. I truly believe we will all mourn his loss forever. I know I had part to do with his death as many of his fans, friends, family members did. Where was all this love when he needed our support? We all get so tied up in our busy lives and let slip the most important things. Support, compassion, and love for others. I never once doubted Michael’s innocence as I am sure millions of others feel similarly, but, where were our voices when he needed us.
Furthermore, all the talk of Michael’s addiction to prescribed drugs, so what. Tell me what human in this world could endure such malicious scandal as Michael underwent. The accusations, name calling, media after him like hounds, dissecting his every move. Newspapers, magazines write what sells, so what that key words or sentences are omitted. People do not buy the truth, facts, they want gossip, scandal. Therefore, at the end of the day, the media did their job in reporting what you wanted to hear. Let me tell you, I am not one to take depressants or other types of mood enhancement drugs, but you are darn tooting correct in saying if I was the one going through the humiliation Michael was given I would also be taking drugs. How much can a human being take before cracking?
Let us not forget Michael’s young accusers, now young adults, and their families, to them I say “Shame on you.” One day you will all have to answer to a much Higher Power.
And now we have the Law Enforcement, raiding Michael’s home, touching, and commenting on his most personal, private belongings. At that very moment, it was Michael who was being molested. No wonder he never returned to Neverland. Michael’s dignity, passion, love, kindness, privacy was thrown to the wolves. We watched it, but only a handful showed their support. Where were all the rest of us? We will all remember this defamation of character and we must never let it happen to any other innocent soul. Therefore, to the Law Enforcement “Shame on you,” also.
Michael was a person full of joy, love compassion and of course still a child himself. He wanted to share his wealth and happiness with the world. Did one person even try to understand him? NO!!!! Many twisted minds, took that gift and turned it into evil. People who think that badly of others are actually the ones who have major issues. It is they who have the evil thoughts. Get a life!!!!
Where is the magic and love, we all once had? It is in every one of us. We grow up, we feel the pressures of life, work, money, family, etc., and we lose the magic. Michael had it, it never left him, and he wanted us to feel it, also. Humankind has lost that love, trust, compassion in oneself, as well as in others; it is never too late to get it back. That will be my legacy, as it should be yours, to one of the greatest “Michael.”
I send my deepest and most heartfelt sympathies to Michael’s family. I will mourn, as well as millions others, with you from the bottom of my heart.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 9:59 am ET

Melissa, exactly... The fact that he was bragging that he worked with MJ and was overbearing at the Staples Center. Makes it all the more clear. He was controlling MJ. Like no one could get to him but him.

Many people on this site seem to believe whatever TMZ, People magazine, and even posters to the site tell them (i.e. "Junior," who sounds like he knows a lot). Don't believe all you hear (read) and only half of what you see. Personally, I doubt we will ever know the real truth. There are too many versions of the "truth" out there.

Michael Jackson died a tragic, untimely death. He was a loving father, a phenomenal performer and songwriter, and a true humanitarian. His children are left without their father at very young ages. He spent his entire life entertaining us. He donated time and money to multiple charities. Did he always make the best decisions? Do any of us always make the best decisions?

May he rest in peace and may his children grow up in the way he seemed to want them–as loving people and out of the public eye (although I doubt we will let the latter come to fruition).

What???-Spared from Collapse on stage–Are you saying that Dr. Murray did MJ a favor by killing him-

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 10:11 am ET

Who was watching the children while MJ was at rehearsals?

Deb in Lancaster, PA   July 30th, 2009 10:11 am ET

The children have led isolated lives and really had no contact with the outside world. How can anyone say this is loving parenting? Michael Jackson's death underscores that no parent can be everything to their children. They must have a life outside the family circle at some point. How are these kids going to live in the world. And how are they going to cope if their grandmother passes away.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 10:17 am ET

If Dr. Murray was at the rehearsals, could it be possible that he was giving MJ something there.. It has been reported that his Houston Office was a "pill mill." I want to believe if Dr. Murray was at the rehearsals, that he could have given MJ something.

Also, someone mentioned on one of the shows that says that MJ and Dr. Murray may have had a written agreement about administering the diprivan. Anyone know what type of an agreement MJ and Dr. Murray had.

Terri   July 30th, 2009 10:22 am ET

I just dont understand why a cardiologist instead of an anestheseologist (sp)?- C'mon now. Not Dr Murray's specialty. It's obvious what his main priority was – the money. Why is money so much more important than a human life – especially to a doctor? Ethically, putting the two together is a disaster. MIchael's death is the proof. Does being a doctor even mean anything anymore? I trust them less now – even my own. Do they even care? There are no excuses. Human life – gone. Was it worth it? Was all the money worth the risk Dr Murray – and it wasn't even your medical specialty.

larry   July 30th, 2009 10:27 am ET

I think the professor was trying to make an issue out of a simple procedure: he should have shown an ID to the police and that's it. He was trying to capitalize over the racial profiling concern. Maybe he thought this is an auditorium and this is a good opportunity to make some publicity and earn some points over the racial discrimination topic. Everybody should respect police while they are doing their job. After all, the police were there after a signal that somebody was burglaring their house. I would have said: "thank you sir for doing your job and for trying to protect my house. I am the owner of this house and here is my ID. I appreciate your prompt response. "
It is as simple as this! I think the police was absolutely right!

Dana   July 30th, 2009 10:28 am ET

It seems to me that the chef would have went to his room and asked him what he would like for breakfast or lunch i would not let some dr. tell me what iam going tomake for Michaeil. This clearly shows he was being controlled.

irna   July 30th, 2009 10:29 am ET

jj banks   July 30th, 2009 10:34 am ET

This does not add up. We know there was security footage. More than likely in the room Jackson dies. Tabloids back that up. Lets see what really happened. I think Murray did bring Jackson back. If what the chef is saying is true. Murray could have been with Jackson long enough to bring him back and more than likely he told Murray to go get his kid. Tabloids reveal a different side of what happened before noon that day. Most agree that Murray took a large suitcase out to his vehicle and went back inside the house. One tabloid reveals police are looking for this suitcase that has the iv pole and drugs in it. There are parts of the security tapes missing for that day. WOULD THOSE WHO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON JUST TELL US.

Terri   July 30th, 2009 10:37 am ET

Oh, forgot one thing.

I have heard "friends" – that Michael and Dr. Murray were friends. Hadn't they only known each other a couple of months? How well can you know a person in two months? Not very. Michael's overly trusting but persistent characteristics made him vulnerable to danger and an easy prey to someone who was actually a "friend" of the money Michael offered not of Michael the human being.

Excerpt from Vanity Fair Magazine
The Conspiracy to Murder Micheal Jackson, Involvement of the Jewish Mafia

Take General Maximo Overkill, for instance. That's his soldier of fortune's nom de guerre. His real name is Gordon Novel, and he moves in those spooky circles which he calls "high strange," where conspiracies flourish and cloak-and-dagger investigations overlap. He cut his teeth working for former New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison on the J.F.K. assassination, and he boasts that he served as former attorney general Ramsey Clark's "Doberman" at Waco. Several weeks before the trial began, I was put in touch with him through Steven Saltzman—the son of a James Bond–film producer—in Monaco, who told me that Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine had been seeking Novel's advice on how to stop the trial. According to Novel, the Jacksons believed that it was all a grand conspiracy, that the accuser's mother was being paid by Jackson's enemies, who wanted to take control of his major economic asset, the Sony/ATV Music catalogue, which holds publishing rights to 251 Beatles songs and works by scores of other pop artists. Jackson claimed that the main conspirators were Sony Records; its former president, Tommy Mottola; and Santa Barbara County district attorney Tom Sneddon, the prosecutor, who also investigated Jackson in 1993. The catalogue is held jointly by Jackson and Sony, and Jackson's share is mortgaged for more than $200 million. If Jackson defaults, Sony has first chance to buy his half as early as this coming December. (A Sony spokesperson said, "We are not going to comment on any aspect of this.")
Jackson explained to Novel that the conspirators had introduced him to Al Malnik, a wealthy Miami attorney who had once represented Meyer Lansky. Malnik later helped Jackson refinance his loans. That was not what Jackson told Novel, however. According to Novel, Jackson said he was lured to Malnik's house in Miami Beach by film director Brett Ratner to see a house so beautiful it would make him catatonic. He said that once he was there, however, Malnik, who Jackson claimed had Mafia ties, wanted to put his fingers in the singer's business. Jackson also said he received a call from Tommy Mottola while he was there, which aroused his suspicion, but he did not tell Novel that he later put Malnik on the board of the Sony/ATV Music partnership. (Reached by telephone, Malnik scoffed at the idea of a conspiracy or of his having any Mafia ties. He said, "It does not make any sense." Ratner confirmed that he took Jackson to Malnik's house and that he considers Malnik a father figure.)
Jackson and Mottola have been at odds for years. In New York in July 2002, Jackson staged a public protest against Mottola with the Reverend Al Sharpton, calling him a racist and "very, very devilish." He called for a boycott of Sony, which is believed to have contributed to Mottola's ouster from the company six months later. Jackson is reportedly so frightened of Mottola that one of the reasons he surrounded himself with Nation of Islam guards in 2003 was that he thought Mottola could put out a hit on him. (Mottola could not be reached for comment.)
Jackson wanted Novel to find the links among these characters. Novel told me in March that "he believes he'll get convicted. He believes the judge, the D.A., and the Sony guys are a conspiracy to take over his money."
On March 17, nearly a month into the trial, Novel went to Neverland to strategize. Maximo's first thought was that Michael was in need of "an extreme makeover" of what he calls "imaggio." Jackson drove him around the ranch in an old pickup truck. "He acted like he was scared silly," Novel told me. His fear was "six foot thick. He kept asking me what prison was like. Can he watch TV and movies there? He wanted me to stop the show." When I asked Novel what that meant, he related that Michael said, "'I want this trial stopped.' He said the judge and Sneddon had rigged the game."

Lots of black people have blue eyes where have you been?

Come out to the west coast don't be shy, travel the world all of us mixed with different cultures etc have different looks and we're taking over.

Reenie   July 30th, 2009 10:50 am ET

You have nailed this issue down completey. This is exact same thought I have over this, you could not have said it any more clearly and percise. Junior, you need to get in touch with the Jackson's attorney.

It doesn't matter whether there was an Anesthesiologist there or not. The operative words here are 'Surgical Drugs'. This procedure if you will should have NEVER been administered in a private home. I also would like to know where all the extra impliments came from, IV, IV Lines, you just cannot buy this stuff off the street or at your local drug store. Where's the invoice for the oxygen tanks? Someone had to order those as well. It does sound strange, all of this. Did Dr. Murray just go by another Physicans report that Michael was alright, did Dr. Murray do his own blood tests, etc. Bad Doctor if he did not.

Because of media absurdity, everyone is letting their imaginations run rampant here. You have to remember, Michael was 50. some 50 yr olds do take medications for various aliments and it seems Michael had some various health issues and I am NOT talking drug use.

I agree with Junior. this was implied ' malice '. everyone connected to Michael during his time in Los Angeles was in fact paid by AEG. If someone don't get on the ball and really investigate all of this, then this will be another tragedy. These people had him right where they wanted him, he was worth more dead than alive to some in the inner circle.

michele canada   July 30th, 2009 10:55 am ET

i just want to make a statement...for all those that think that it was WRONG for the doctor to call on Prince to watch the CPR....i think he made a right call.....Prince is the most reliable one out of everyone in the house to tell the truth.....if the doc had of called on anyone in the house...those people could have lied to frame the doc and put the pressure on him and away from them if it got to heated etc.....calling on Prince...i think was that right choice.....Prince had nothing to lose or witnessing what was going on....and being the most reliable was his dad and he gonna tell the truth on what he saw....

Dempsy   July 30th, 2009 10:57 am ET

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 10:57 am ET


No, of course not.

Let me put it in another way. I am thinking of what Stevie Wonder said. He said something like "as much as we need MJ here on earth, G'd needed him more". I would rather say it in a different way:

As much as we wanted MJ to stay on earth, G'd took him home in order to prevent him from further damage and down fall.

Couldn't that be possible?

Oh boy, I am in trouble.
Now, I do believe David Geffen was not kosher to MJ, but what about MJ's bodyguards and spiritual mentor from the Nation of Islam?
When people say the people around MJ kept family and friends away from him, it weren't certainly Jews around him. He was all surrounded by Nation of Islam members, a group brought in by Grace.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 11:14 am ET

I wonder if this Ratner fellow alluded to in this article, is related to the Dr. Ratner who introduced MJ to diprivan.

Although, I think that Vanity Fair article has some credibility. Should we as MJ fans really accept it. Remember one of Vanity Fairs authors is a woman named Maureen Orth, who in my opinion, is partly responsible for the death of Michael Jackson.

Kara   July 30th, 2009 11:26 am ET

I have shed many, many tears over the past five weeks due to the tragic death of Jackson, but most have been for his children. They have a father that would never have left them had he really had the option. What these children must be suffering through is unimaginable. Being in the home, being witness to the events and sounds. This will be with them during their remaining days. I pray that they hold stong to Michaels own strength as the forge on through life. It will be a difficult journey, but may they feel the spirit of their father in ever step they take.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 11:27 am ET

Adrienne, you are right. Orth wrote extensivekly about MJ's voodoo rituals. According to her sources he went even into a bath full of bull's blood, in order to put a spell on Spielberg & Geffen.

Linda from New York   July 30th, 2009 11:28 am ET

Lets not forget; a reporter from Vanity Fair snapped that last picture of Michael.

John   July 30th, 2009 11:28 am ET

To stop all the speculation about these children. I think there should be a DNA test done. Leagally, these are Michael Jacksons Children, he paid for the procedures to have his own children. Biologically I doubt it strongly. Take into ocnsideration, sperm count is low in drug users, that is fact. I am beginning to see the resemblance in Prince Michaels eyes to one Dr. Artie Klein. I am thinking whatever Doctor had the petri dish, did a bit of a medical knowhow and mixed both 'donations' . I find it interesting that this baby carrier also known as Debbie, is now running to the offices of a doctor who is in the same building of Dr. Kleins office. Think she is running scared? Think she is going to convince Dr. Klein to come forward to admit he is the donor? This would put another monkeywrench into the mix, but at the same time will show they were after money as well. she is also running scared because she did inject drugs into Michael.
the Jackson family has a tough road ahead of them. hope they have some mighty great attorneys, maybe they should hire that silver haired attorney for help., Thomas Messereau.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 11:29 am ET

It was heart-breaking when I haeard the news of MJ's death. How could that be? However one cannot start asking God questions. However, I too sense some elements of foul play or rather, negligence. the doctor, knowing of MJ's health history and present medical conditions, could have been more cautious while administering any drugs. I learnt that he gave him that last drug (intravenously) shortly after midnight. that drug, i learnt can effectively be given with a breathing support machine around. Now here comes the poser: Was such support machine used for MJ at that time of administering the drug that led to th heart attack???

Michael Jackson   July 30th, 2009 11:37 am ET

Thank you all for your love and prayers. Remember to love one another and to love the planet. One and all can make a difference in this world if we just look within ourselves and make the changes to make this world a better place. God Bless and Thank You once again.

Chinelo   July 30th, 2009 11:40 am ET

It was heart-breaking for me when I learnt of the news of MJ's death. I sense some kind of foul play or rather, negligence. the drug given to MJ shortly after midnight on that fateful day can only be administered successfully with a breathing support machine nearby. Now the poser is this: Was the machine there? If yes, was it used on MJ? If no, Why?

Cyndi   July 30th, 2009 11:40 am ET

If the doctor did not come downstairs at the usual time that morning, was something very wrong from early on, say around 9:23am? . Around around the time that Dr. Murry called his contacts in Houston to remove boxes from his storage unit? He apparently had a phoneline to call them, even though it was said that there was no land line phone in the house to call 911. And what about the security tape that apparently 'disappeared'?. It begs the question as to what went on between 9:23am and 911 being called at 12:21pm. I would also like to know how it is possible, that a DOCTOR, A CARDIOLOGIST IN FACT, HIRED TO TAKE CARE OF MICHAEL JACKSON, AND 'SET UP SHOP' IN HIS HOME, DID NOT HAVE A DEFIBRILLATOR ON HAND! No one has mentioned a crash cart being use to help Michael before 911 arrived. Especially with a potentially dangerous/deadly drug such as Diprivan. The heart has a separate electromagnetic field around it, that responds to electrical stimulation. Every hospital and airport has defib kits.... WHERE WAS MICHAEL'S DEFIB KIT!!!!! That's like a roadside mechanic without a portable battery charger....and if that is the case, would that not also be considered wreckless disregard for human life? I believe the hypocratic oath, states to 'protect the patient from harm'...or 'do no harm'... not being prepared for heart failure, given the danger of the drug is incomprehensible. Very suspicious circumstances, and lots of unanswered questions!!!! Hopefully legislation will be passed to make any drug used in a hospital a controlled substance, and only the attending physician or surgeon is allowed to dispense narcotics for a maximum of 7 days, so as not to addict their patients. In addition, any doctor dispensing narcotics under alias names goes to jail for life. Perhaps that will deter these greedy prescription happy docs without ethics, morals, or a conscience. I hope all of these individuals involved are brought to justice. And what about all of the doctors that knew Michael was 'doctor shopping' and did nothing to report it to the authorities, DEA, LAPD, AMA? Don't they have a professional, ethical, and moral obligation to report other doctors misconduct/misuse/abuse of wrongdoing or dispensing prescription drugs? Shouldn't they be held accountable under their hypocratic oath to do no harm as well? Whether or not they were Michael's friend, they are a doctor first, under the law.

Romona   July 30th, 2009 11:41 am ET

Why haven't we heard anything about the 911 caller at MJ's house.
This person must have a lot of information to contribute. He was given directions from Dr. Murray as Dr. Murray was yelling in the background to the 911 caller to tell the police to hurry up while he was trying to revive MJ.

Rita   July 30th, 2009 11:47 am ET

I don't believe his chef is looking for 15 minutes of fame. I believe she is being very genuine and developed a bond with not only Michael Jackson but with his kids.

This has been hard for all of us. I don't know about any of you but I'm still in complete shock over MJ's death. It's inconceivable that something like this would happen. Men like MJ whose presence was so magnetic we think they're impervious to anything. But now that it has happened and you look back on his life it makes you realize that MJ was a human being just like the rest of us.

Agree with me or not but it's my belief that the media's constant badgering and stalking of him accompanied with those bogus molestation charges and a horrible father is what killed him in the end. Those doctors that gave him the meds were just a catalyst.

It's evident to us now that this should never have happened. Had one doctor not been so negligent MJ would be with us right now.

I watched Kai on the Today Show this morning. FINALLY!! someone in Michael Jackson's life who speaks well of him. What a classy lady. Spoke of Michael as healthy & happy. Who created a loving home for his children.

All the other so called friends are a disgrace. I have lost total respect for Deepak Chopra. I thought this guy was reputable. He is nothing but a sleaze. As is Uri Keller & the Rabbi. All 3 are repeating so called personal conversations with 'their friend Michael' They supposedly have known him for years, did they never have any other conversations with him that didn't center on drugs? Ridiculous. All 3 have been out of Michael's life for years.

As for the nurse. She starts off with her first interview as "Michael asked about Diprovan", by the time she is on her last interview "he is begging for Diprovan"

The only thing more disgraceful about these 'so called friends' grabbing their 15 minutes on all these talk/interview shows is letting them repeat the same old same old on every show.

Once again, Kai what a lovely lady. I hope the Jackson family appreciates her.

I wonder what Deepak Chopra's current friends are thinking seeing him betray every confidence on LKL every chance he gets. Maybe Michael was right to get rid of him years ago.

Rick from Canada   July 30th, 2009 12:13 pm ET

Hi Larry. Has anyone considered the possibility of assisted suicide? Maybe MJ wnated to end it all when he might have realized he couldn't do it anymore. Just a thought.

Larry, You need to help me find out if anything is wrong with Joe Jackson. Is he an addict too?

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 12:17 pm ET

I notice there is always a strong, well versed legal defence supporting AEG & matters relating to them on the programme. e.g. Leonard Rowe's contract to manage MJ & his & joe Jackson's comments regarding MJ not being allowed visits & being controlled, were refuted by the legal team on the next programme.
Why won't they get lawyers to explore the merits of Joe & Leonard's points. No visits and MJ being controlled are serious comments. Maybe its difficult to stand up to AEG, or maybe it's worth one's while to stand up for them. Money talks.
They must get new lawyers to handle MJ's will, who are appointed by the Jackson family.
It's not surprising MJ couldn't sleep with Mattolla etc. trying to destroy him. How come the press aren't hounding him for comments & snapping photos when he's unaware ?

Mike   July 30th, 2009 12:19 pm ET

Now the blame game begins, MIchael tried to get clean but how serious was his effort. Let's be honest, it was only a matter of time before he died from an overdose. The Dr. will be hung out to dry on this one, but there were many many before him doing the same thing. Thank Zeus that is was a black Dr and not a white one. Can you imagine!!!

RIP MIchael the sleep you craved is finally upon you. Sleep in peace.

d5   July 30th, 2009 12:20 pm ET

Lets be Realistic about MJ and this "INNUENDO" about DRUGS and his ALLEGED DRUG ADDITION. "NO INSURANCE COMPANY" is going to insure a person, any person on drugs and know about it. This man was Insured by "LLOYDS OF LONDON" for this tour, had just completed a vigorious physical and passed. Just completed a three-Four hour (maybe more) rehearsal.50yrs old, 50 years old. you can not , can not perform as this man had and have been an addict, he would have been dead a long time ago.The question is, WHAT HAPPEN TO MJ AFTER he said goodby to whomever brought him home and entering his home?

Jean   July 30th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

On the subject of Joe Jackson. Michael dismissed his father as his manager way back in the early eighties. He did not trust Joe with his business interests. Ever since then Joe has been doing whatever he can to weedle his way back into MJ's career and business affairs – while all Michael really wanted was a father. Most of the Jackson's are embarrassing Michael by selling stories to various tabloids and basically vindicating his decision to leave his estate in the hands of his trusted lawyer rather than his money-crazy family. Most of what the Jacksons are saying is without much knowledeg as Michael really was not that close to his family. It is wonderful that Katherine gets the kids as MJ adored his mother. But she should not attempt to challenge his Will. He did not want anyone named Jackson – including his mother – to have access to his estate. It is for his kids and John Branca is the best person to take care of Michaels legacy and assets.

CAC Clouden   July 30th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

Race relations will never be overcome because of shows like yours and you need to keep controversyt going for ratings...

Dr Murray feel asleep while administering Propofol to Mike that night. A mistake but a very costly mistake when you are messing with drugs that are only administered in hospital settings!!!! The mistake cost childern there father, a mother her son, and brother and sisters missing there biggest piece. I pray for Mikes family and for his fans. WE ALL WILL MISS HIM

Gates is the racist. If I was breaking into my own home because I lost my keys and someone called the police, I would be happy that they came and feel more embarrassed than angry. I would explain rationally what happened and I don't care what color I am, I think that if you show someone respect they will show it back. The police were doing their job. PERIOD!

1. Why didn't This woman say something to authorities about those oxygen tanks ? Another blind eye turned.
2. Who is paying her, AEG?

4. Ask this woman if there is a Secuirty System to press for Emergency help. you should know Larry, all homes in that area do come with private security systems.

sharon   July 30th, 2009 12:37 pm ET

I have spent the last 5 weeks listening watching and crying. Michael Jackson was very much a part of my children's lives, therefore a part of mine. From dressing like him on Halloween to be "Cool" to Birthday cakes with his Photo's airbrushed on the cake, to my daughter swearing she would marry him one day! I shut off the media to Elvis (My era) because of so much negative publicity. I quit listening to his music, put my collection away and put it all in a memory box. Is it time to do this again? Sure, we are all nosey, but all I want to hear is he passed peacefully. My heart breaks for his beautiful Children and the people in his life that truely loved him. No matter what speculation is made, no matter what toxicology reports say, what anyone says or does the end result is that beautiful voice, and that phenomenal talent , that wonderful Daddy is now silent. When I watch a video or listen to a song, all I can think of is it is gone forever. I pray Michael is in Heaven's Choir watching over his Children.

Monica   July 30th, 2009 12:44 pm ET

The same circle that Michael put his trust into are the ones who did this to him. They used him, they abused him, they kept him away from family and friends and then they killed him. they will cover up and blame the Doctor who by all rights is resposible directly, but who is responsible indirectly? The people who held the chattle on Michael, thats who.

John   July 30th, 2009 12:45 pm ET

That should read UnJustifiable Homicide or better yet=Intenton Homicide.

corazon   July 30th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Forgiveness for a person can be making the decision not to resent or hate the person anymore. However, you can still desire justice. And paying the penalty for a crime is exactly that, justice..... not revenge.

So, I believe Kelsey when he says he forgives him (lets go of resentment and hatred) but still feels justice must be served. That is only fair.

triny   July 30th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Rick from Canada:

The answer to that is absolutely not! Michael was excited about this tour. Obviously he was fit enought to do the shows in London as evidenced in the rehearsal video. If he didn't feel ready to do this then he wouldn't have done it but without question Michael Jackson WAS NOT expecting to die nor did he want to.

Knightwolf   July 30th, 2009 12:51 pm ET

Is Mikey Jackson sick ? Didn't know anything about it.

Dale   July 30th, 2009 12:54 pm ET

My prayers go to Michael Jackson's family, and children, at this most difficult time in their lives.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 12:56 pm ET

Mrs.Jackson watched her son work his entire life for everything he believed in. In the mean time he is ridiculed, made a mockery of, accused of disgusting dispicable acts , named as a drug junkie and taken advantage of until his dying breath. This was her child, her baby. So in my opinion, she has EVERY RIGHT to know what happens withhis entire estate. Look at form your view...could you watch your child go through this for years and then watch someone else, after his death, tell you that you had No rights to anything of his ever again and that nothing that they decide to do withwhat is left of your son, is absolutely none of your business? Unfortunately, Michael probably didn't think of it that way. He would have never of wanted to hurt his mother. She is not asking for more money, she simply wants to be able to see what is happening with his estate, and everything that she has watched him sacrifice for. The only reason she wants to know what his estate is worth , is to be able to monitor it so it is not being handled irresponsibly. She has also asked to see the contract Michael signed with AEG confirming he would do 50 concerts. Mrs.Jackson is a very smart lady and I don't think she gets enough credit for that.
So as Mj fans, I'm hoping we can show our support for his mother. She at least deserves to know where her sons HARD EARNED money is going. Plus I may add that the two men named as executors in his will were estranged from Michael as of 2004. He had nothing to do with them. That was at the time of his trial, so maybe he didn't have a chance to change it or whatever. But that is A very big concern of his mothers.

Tiredofignorace   July 30th, 2009 1:09 pm ET

I was just reading some of the comments, about MJ and the issues and mysteries and unanswered questions around his death and the truth is we will never truly know the depths of his personal pain and trauma. He had all the money in the world but it could not buy him peace of mind or happiness. The bottom line is the world is grieving for a loss that we can never regain again and the greatest entertainer that ever lived and will live is gone from us. Then I read some about the Gates incident and this incident with Mr. Gates is proof that racism is still alive and well in this country. Whether or not Michael Jackson was an addict and he died of an overdose or was it a planned out scheme by AEG or whether or not the caller did not refer to Gates a black man entering a house when she called the authorities (which I doubt) what does it matter? When one hurts it a we all hurt-bottom line it will all trickle down and everyone will have to give account to God for their actions.

And Jo Anne from Ohio, you sound like a straight racist…Go back and read your ignorant comments, you will shock yourself!

Rick from Canada   July 30th, 2009 1:16 pm ET

for triny...

If he didn’t feel ready to do this then he wouldn’t have done it but without question Michael Jackson WAS NOT expecting to die nor did he want to.

You only ever see 1 rehearsal video of only 1 song. That is much different than doing 50 shows. There are probably many reasons he would have proceeded in doing the shows, as he had probably passed a point of no return.

And by the way, I thought that MJ was a brilliant artist and entertainer.

shanay (jamaica)   July 30th, 2009 1:36 pm ET

I love MJ and i think that he is the the world's greatest entertainer. I want to send my regards to his mother and children. I still cant understand why there are so many ungrateful people in america who do not appreciate what this man has done for so many across the world. I did not have the honour of even living in the same country as him but i felt as if i knew him as a close friend through his music and actions. I cried the moment i heard of his death and all through his memorial. i also want to say that the only member of the jackson family apart from the mother who i thought was there for MJ was Janet. Why cant you people let MJ rest in peace.

Azza   July 30th, 2009 1:57 pm ET

It is sad how the media is digging into his life, not because he is no longer here they have the right to say whatever they want about him.. he was a great person who inspired so many lives(including mine) and i believe that he will continue to do through his amazing music. The media must respect his family and his fans and give them a chance to mourn their great loss in peace.

It is not too late to Give the man the privacy and peace that he always searched for.
MICHAEL, will forever be remembered as the greatest, most amazing artist of all time..

KnowItAll   July 30th, 2009 1:58 pm ET

One day everyone is going to see what a total farce putting on this concert series was.
You go and watch, really watch and really listen to Michael Jacksons videos, even the rehersal video – it is all lip synched. He and his brothers, when they did that 30th reunion at Madison Square Garden, most of the songs and music was pre recorded and sped up and lip synched. the Motown special where Michael Jackson sings Billie Jean was lip synched.
AEG was going to put Michael up on stage once again, gleaning all this money for someone who was not going to do a completely Live concerts(s). They intended to defraud the public and make millions of dollars. this is no news, this has been going on for years.
Sad fact is, Michael no longer could pull off those songs, hasn't been able to for 20+ years, not in concert, not live, not on camera. I bet this is in part one of the reasons AEG doesn't want anyone to talk. It wasn't even Michael in London. the story already has come out, it was in fact an imposter all done for pormotion.

Michael in his heyday was extemely talented and wonderful, but years have passed, he was just a shell of his former self and they were going to parade him anyway for money.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

It is beyond my comprehension that people keep saying MJ looked well during the rehearsal. He hardly danced or moved.

Haven't you forgotten the tour was postponed twice?

A person addicted to that many anxiety-pain-sleep medication is not fit.

Why is it so hard to face the truth? My impression that pampering Michael have led to his down fall (among other things of course). if you love someone, you protect him against himself and you call the spade the spade.

MJ was in no way able to perform that number of shows. Admitting it doesn't mean you love and respect him less.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 2:09 pm ET

Toni & everyone: The Will.
Maybe there is another, more recent will that someone has disposed of because MJ's family supported him a lot in recent times, so he would have wanted his family in charge of it now. What counts in a will is what the 'deceased' wanted. MJ wouldn't have wanted lawyers he had previously dismissed. If he dismissed the lawyers stated on a previous will, surely he would have updated his will with new lawyers/ family members named instead ?

Marj   July 30th, 2009 2:11 pm ET

Re: Kathryn's "inheritance"

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Michael's mother was granted a "life estate" to 40% of Michael's estate. This is income generated from 40% of the estate NOT 40% of the estate. Please confirm this understanding.

justsaying   July 30th, 2009 2:13 pm ET

Dr Murray is looking more and more liable for Michael death. I am coming to believe too that MJ was found dead by the Dr way before 911 was called. Things dont add up.

Charles   July 30th, 2009 2:17 pm ET

AMERICA, it is POINTLESS for me to argue that racism still exist in America. If anyone believes "race does NOT argument has won!!!

Has American racism changed from the Jim Crow days, the answer is "YES." But racism is NOT eradicated...WHITE PEOPLE it is time to get HONEST!!!

History has a way of repeating itself...when WHITE WOMAN are once again enslaved by the WHITE MAN, a new call for social and racial justice will become widespread.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 2:23 pm ET

Rick from Canada

Loved what you wrote!!
And I remember reading somewhere that someone suggested "assisted suicide". There is no way on Gods green earth that Michael would have intentionally left his children.

And as far as the kids....whos ever loving business is it , who their bio. parents were? Michael did not think it was anyones business when he was alive. WHY would you think it's anybodys business now. It's just more greed at digging into his private / personal life. It's not going to help with anything in this situation, except to give the media and tabloids a chance to mock his life and peck at him a little more.
I have two adopted daughters and it would kill me if people were talking like this about them. I'ts absolutely nobodys business where and by whom MJs children came into this world. And if you just can't get past that itch to have to know, just go to any tabloid and they will give you their honest answer that they got by their sources.
Rick, this bottom part was not directed to you, I just got caught up in the moment. I'm an American married to a Canadian. I'm in Sakatchewan, wher are you? You don't have to give that out if you don't want to, sorry.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 2:24 pm ET

Don't know if you were aware that the rehearsal footage of MJ showed him "marking" his routine. This is how his choreographer described the footage when he was interviewed for a programme shown in the UK, a couple of weeks ago. Dancers generally mark their steps because they have to go through the routine so many times and they have to conserve some energy. This is obviously different to an actual performance.

Jaelle   July 30th, 2009 2:29 pm ET

I still believe this is not our business. The only thing about Michael Jackson that the public has a right to is the personal copies of his music that they own, and the memories they have of good times or good concerts when they listen to his music. We do not own our celebrities. They offer us a gift they have, and we appreciate what they give us. That is where it should end. This man's life was a lesson to us all, about how we treat others and the consequences.

Gossiping about celebrities is cruel. They are people. When we engage in this gossip we teach our children that some people don't matter as much as others, or that some people deserve or even ask to be mocked. Well as one wise man said, take the log out of your own eye before you cast judgment about the speck in your neighbor's eye. And more powerfully "you who is without sin, cast the first stone....." Basically, what makes us think we're so much better that we have the right to judge. It's not our place.

roland   July 30th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

Jackson's death was a tragedy agreed, but we should be carefull not to make a scapegoat of dr. murray, afterall every right thinking person who saw jacson lately will readly conclude that his days were numbered. due to his condition it was only a matter of when.

i had always prayed that the almighty GOD will bess MJ with a painless death.

just consider a decomposing skin while still alive that would have been the hight of it.

me and my kid brother are one of his greatest fans...and we will miss him...ONCE AGAIN LETS LEAVE DR. MURRAY OUT OF THESE!


Vivien Wolsk, Ph.D New York City   July 30th, 2009 2:49 pm ET

As a psychologist I am concerned that Prince Michael, a 12 yr old, was the first person called for by the attending doctor. I wonder how much he was expected to be an adult and care-taker for his father. Also there is some question about whether the doctor stayed over nite or arrived in the morning.
My biggest concern is that MJ's family, claiming to be so close to him and the children, seemed so unaware of his use of drugs.

P.T. Byrd   July 30th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

We're all human-beings. Some of can dance and sing much better than others and most of us can't do either well. Some of us apply our talents in professions that never see an ounce of fame or glory and live in obscurity; and prefer it that way.

Michael - however he may have died - is gone. Let him rest in peace.

stephanie   July 30th, 2009 3:16 pm ET

GOSH I HOPE U GUYS WOULD LET MICHEAL JACKSON AND HIS FAMILY ALONE!!! u guys r sooo anoying i wish u would let micheal jackson rest in peace...gosh guys they r having a hard time and they r having a harder time if u guys r on their backs...gosh he was a great man...we know.. but we could do something nice for him and that is let him rest in peace..God u guys r soo anoying and poor kids they r even begging u guys to leave them give it a rest will ya!

Mike G of NYC, NY   July 30th, 2009 3:19 pm ET

As sorry as it maybe, no other person but MJ killed MJ. He decided to have Dr's hook him up, abused these drugs, and finally never thought the party would end. The DR. is also at fault in that he swore not to do any harm, which he failed in doing for the sake of money.

However don't look for scape goats, its MJ that did this to himself.

NML   July 30th, 2009 3:29 pm ET


Still feeling sad..

Miss MJ a lot.

My heart goes out to the kids!!<3

Toni   July 30th, 2009 3:32 pm ET

Maureen {UK}
He did not want anything to do with these two men. That was widely known to many people in his life, and THAT is what his mother is concerned about. She is also wanting AEG to show her the contract Michael signed, because she says he did not ,in the beginning, agree to that many shows. This woman was included in all of his business dealings etc., for the past few years. Her lawyer is stating that MJ always wanted his mothers advice on every issue of his career. So it is my understanding from reading the lawyers article,that she knew he did not want to do any more than 31 shows and only 2 per week. They are saying AEG increased it to 50 shows and 3day a week. Believe it or not, she has requested to see ALL of Michaels contracts, INCLUDING one between Michael and his to make sure his dad, her own husband ,didnt screw him over. Nobody will show her anything.
When he did his will it was 2002. He had questionable relationships with the two named executors in 2004. So I'm afraid becaue he was so busy fighting off hungry leaches, and losing all his dignity, that he just hadn't gotten it changed. I don't know . It's all such a nightmare. But I think all Mrs. Jackson is doing is trying to make sure who ever takes his estate is in her sons best interests. She isn't asking for anymore money her attn.says. Michael left room for a 3rd executor in his will. All she is asking for is a seat, so she can personally see where Michaels money and possesions etc go. She is worried to death as to how her sons estate will be dealt with. I personally do not think it has anything to do with Joe, I think she is trying to look after every thing that was rightfully Michaels and the childrens. She is not asking to be sole executor of his will. I wish I could find this site for you. I'll keep looking. It's very interesting and gives you a whole new outlook on Mrs. Jacksons intentions.

Karen   July 30th, 2009 3:44 pm ET

You can always tell about the people who has nothing to say but criticisms and hate towards MJ, they have no values at all, no manners, no ethics. Karma will be done to you. Speak ill and think evil of someone, whether they were a celebrity or not, the basics is have a bit of respect. Especially as they have living relatives and children. To Ms. Diane, I cannot believe you have a degree. You will be surprised to know that a lot of Michael Jacksons' supporters and fans have fantastic intelligent degrees and careers. This is why a lot of them understands and loves the man. Because it takes a lot intelligence, values and morals to love the man for what he is and what he had given. Even then, even someone without a degree will know to just shut-up if they have nothing good to say. Why do you rather believe in the worst of people than in their good. In my country, even a father who is earning as little as a dollar a day they are given the rights to care for their children. The kids are never taken away from them just because they earn little money. Neighbors as poor as they are try and help. Of course, it is not a perfect world but with regards to Mr. Jackson being a dad, he has all the great resources and characteristics of a good father. But some people still try find so much fault. There are mega-millions of us in my own country alone who is touched by his life, his music, his charity. I grew up watching friends danced to his tunes. We are not even crazy fans who followed him around. We have not even spent money on his albums. Yet we love him as he was part of each of us, our friends and family and you should be able to respect that Ms. Psychologist. If you cannot bear watching TV and seeing his name and career talked about all the time, then do not watch. Should you do, might as well take the time to get to know his life as you could pick up many good things from it. Mostly, a lot of his life is an eye opener for your own values and ethics. About the Doctors, the many so called journalist who had interviewed him with such lack of respect, and all the so-called friends, staff he has employed throughout the years and now are selling their stories, people who knew him spewing so much garbage about him, if conscience don't get you, something at the end of your life will get you. Don't speak ill of people. I would rather believe in the good of people and be mistaken, than believe that someone was a a bad person later on be proven otherwise. You do not need to be a Michael Jackson fan to stand up for someone like him who has helped so many poor people in the world. He was blessed that is why he made so much money from his genius music, Because God Up there knew He was going to give it back. Michael Jackson is a person who have achieved so much, have respect for that. I pray for Michael Jacksons kids, and his soul.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 3:44 pm ET

Michael had lost so much trust in people after the trial, but his mom was there every day and Messereau even said that the relationship between Michael and his mom was phenominal. So I can't see MJ being too upset with her sitting in on dealings with his estate. I didn't know until that article either that somehow Michaels estate has control of Neverland. I thought it was odd how it was Michael that could save it in the 11th hour. And when the family wanted to bury him there, there was never any mention{That I heard anyway} of them having to fight anyone for it other than neighbors and the state of calif.
Anyway something else to think about.

Lynn   July 30th, 2009 3:45 pm ET


I completely agree. Mrs Jackson has EVERY RIGHT to know what is going on with her sons estate. She has been of the few if not only person who has been consistently in this life and in good graces fromday one right thru to the end. She only wants to be a co-executor. If there is nothing to hide, then whats the problem??

sheila   July 30th, 2009 4:10 pm ET

To Jeannie Enright: You evidently know nothing about the relationship between Michael and his mother. It must have been wonderful for him to have total trust in her to rear his children, even in the Jehovah's Witness faith.

Le me share this poem with you by Jane Taylor – because it reflects Michael's adoration of his Mother completely. He was her sole financial supporter, if you know the facts.

"Who fed me from her gentle breast and hushed me in her arms to rest, And on my cheek sweet kisses prest? My Mother.
When sleep forsook my open eye, Who was it sung sweet lullaby and rocked me that I should not cry? My Mother.
Who sat and watched my infant head When sleeping in my cradle bed, And tears of sweet affection shed? My Mother. When pain and sickness made me cry, Who gazed upon my heavy eye And wept, for fear that I should die? My Mother. Who ran to help me when I fell And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the part to make it well? My Mother. Who taught my infant lips to pray, To love God's holy Word and day, And walk in wisdon's pleasant way? My Mother. And can i ever cease to be Affectionate and kind to thee, Who wast so very kind to me, – My Mother. Oh no, the thought I cannot bear; And if God please my life to spare I hope I shall reward thy care, My Mother. When thou art feeble, old, and gray, My healthy arm shall be thy stay, And I will soothe thy pains away, My Mother. And when I see thee hang thy head, 'Twill be my turn to watch thy bed, And tears of sweet affection shed, – My Mother.

If you knew the facts, you would know that He always made sure that his children and his Mother would be protected.

Toni   July 30th, 2009 4:10 pm ET

Yes, I dont understand it when people say she only want money. This her son, her baby. The number one person he could trust in this world. And she knew he wasnt trusting anyone outside of his family when he died. His brothers loved him so much and I just hate it when its said that they are also wanting money. I'm just so tired of people talking about how the loved Michael, but turn around and bash his family, knowing how much they meant to him. And for Joe... God look at him, he is 80yrs old now. The abuse is over and Michael came to terms with it. And you cannot tell me that Michael didnt know that his kids would be around Joe ,when he left them to his mothers care. Because he knew Joe wasnt a threat anymore. I dont think anyone in the Jackson family would ever let anything happen to those kids. Michael wasnt worried about it, and look how much he loved them.
Sorry, got caught in the moment again. You have to watch me Lynn, I tend to do that sometimes.

sylvie   July 30th, 2009 4:11 pm ET

will there be more lkl like this? joe talking. the chef talking. the housekeppers who caught a glimpse into the room? the secirity guards who all rushed in first and all saw more than the others. i agree with suzie: leave the search for the details to the investigators and concentrate on the artist. that would hepl the children. not bragging over the death from every angle...

Jennifer Fergus   July 30th, 2009 4:14 pm ET

How about an MJ segment focusing on his outstanding charity work and contributions? It's amazing how many MJ bios don't even mention it, yet that's one reason the whole world is grievieng. Yes, he was a great singer, dancer and songwriter, but he was also an amazingly compassionate human being. He was not once in a generation, or even once in a lifetime. He was once.

Josephine D   July 30th, 2009 4:15 pm ET

Incredibly sad. I pray for his children and his family. It must have been so traumatizing for Prince to witness what happened, and for everyone else in the house to experience something like that. Rest in Peace Michael Jackson <3

Luda   July 30th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

Mrs Jackson, she doesn't want money, she wants justice for her son!
she wants to know what happened to her son!

Luda   July 30th, 2009 4:23 pm ET

Prince Michael, a 12 yr old, was the first person called for by the attending doctor.

It's exactly what annoy me.... Why did Murray called Prince??? Why one of the children?? Why didn't he ask for an adult?????

Julie   July 30th, 2009 4:29 pm ET

Wow! It would have been hard for everyone in that house, to not know what was going on. I feel so bad for those children.

I remember exactly what I was doing on June 25th, because as soon as I heard what happened I thought about what I had been doing that day. Regrettably, it is a day I will always remember. Where I was at noon and who I was with.

Julie   July 30th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

I think Murray panicked!

I also feel bad that the 2 executors of the will, won't allow Katherine Jackson more say over what is happening with it. If Michael trusted his mother enough with his children, he would have trusted her with his will.

I think its somebodies paycheck, they don't want to lose!

Anni   July 30th, 2009 4:38 pm ET

Michael will rest in peace.......when Elvis does.

Maureen (UK)   July 30th, 2009 4:40 pm ET

Yes, I agree and so does anyone else who knows anything about MJ, that MJ's mother should be making decisions about MJ's will & estate. I notice that the will was filed late on, after about a week. Maybe the lawyers were waiting to see if anyone came forward with another will. Surely if MJ's family aren't happy, the judge will have to take that into account & let them appoint other lawyers ?

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   July 30th, 2009 4:57 pm ET

Maybe it is wise to put Murray on a suicide alert. Being convicted before for domestic violence, financial troubles and now the death of Michael: his life is over no matter what.

MariumSaeed   July 30th, 2009 5:09 pm ET

Maybe we heard Doc stayed overnight but chef's statement turns out to be something opposite!
Could someone tell us the truth?

AngelicaJ.95   July 30th, 2009 5:12 pm ET

How bizarre is it that nobody knew where Doctor Murray was at the time. With new information revealed, all evidence now points at Dr. Murray like never before. John Wooden once said, “It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” From that, I believe that in order to find the exact truth, we need to collaborate all the evidence that we now know is 100% true. To back up Chef Kai Chase’s explanation, it would be nice to see some proof of this occurrence, perhaps from a video surveillance camera. For Dr. Conrad Murray though, with the ongoing speculation of the delivery of CPR to Mr. Jackson, the perfect quote that fits his position now is, “It isn't what you do, but how you do it.” (John Wooden). Dr. Murray may have delivered CPR to Mr. Jackson, but the answer to the way he may have conducted this is the essential part of yet another question. I just hope that Dr. Murray did not panic at the time of the scene, and therefore, with force, seemed to have made the situation of reviving Mr. Jackson even worse and therefore a failure. Again, within the context of evidence now, "Don't permit fear of failure to prevent effort. We are all imperfect and will fail on occasions, but fear of failure is the greatest failure of all." (John Wooden).

MIMI   July 30th, 2009 5:29 pm ET

Re: Cocovelevet..

Uri, bashir and the rest of them are all HYPOCRITES. It is guilty conscience that made URI to produce that documentary, My friend Micheal Jackson.

It was URI that introduced Micheal to Devil Bashir! whether he was payed money to do that only God knows. Now that Mj is gone, he comes out to say Micheal is his friend. I was watching his face very closely during the documentary especially when he cried, i could not see TRUTH in his crocodile tears. Deepak Chopra also came out to say Mj was a tourchuerd soul N 4 WAT???

Only God knows a tourchured soul. Someone can be tourchured phyically in the body, or mentally, but did Chopra see into Micheals soul to know it is tourchured??? n how tourchured is Chopra's OWN soul???

All u idiots, snakes and leeches coming out on Television, especially on the week of Micheals passing to say all sorts of tins about Micheal will meet ur DOOM someday.

REAL and TRUE friends are loyal and dont speak evil against their friends in life or death. That is why i have a lot of respect for ELIZABETH TAYLOR n DIANA ROSS. They are amogst the very few i consider Micheals freinds.
Mj even said in one of his home movie's documentary that his true loyal freinds can be counted in ONE HAND!!!

Monique   July 30th, 2009 5:39 pm ET

Did he or didn't he? That's the question that will haunt Michael's public for years to come....child molestation.

I for one will choose to remember MJ as an innocent, lost a kind, pure, gentle soul who was an incredible entertainer. I NEED to remember him this order to believe that people like him still exist in this crazy, messed up world.

Michael Jackson, the legend, is forever PETER PAN, "speaking" to the remnants of my childhood. All children must grow up, MJ never did.

I CHOOSE to BELIEVE in Michael Jackson, the LEGEND. Is that so

you won't catch me digging up any dirt, engaging in any debates, purchasing any trashy gossip mags...

I CHOOSE to BELIEVE that the MAN CHILD was real...

maybe that's stupid, gullible... by some people's standards...

BUT it's what I helps..

There is Good in all of us

Life is a GIFt from God. God made me, you and Michael. I choose the Good, If I'm blissful in my be it...he just "stood" for so much....

So instead of screaming "CALL 911, I NEED HELP!!", Dr. Murray yelled "Get security, get Prince"?!! And wasted even more valuable time to help Michael. That is just so heartbreaking to read! And WHY did he need a 12 year old boy there in an emergency??!! How could Prince possibly help a CARDIOLOGIST in an emergency?? Like I have kept saying...the more I read about how Dr. Murray behaved that day the more angry I get . It is just UNBELIEVABLE what that doctor did. The chef had a cell phone right by her. She said she checked the time from her cell phone. So had Dr. Murray told her to call 911, they would have saved time. Now, the chef had to find Pince and security...and then I can only imagine the security didn't call 911 until they got to MJ's room. So 10-15 minutes could easily have passed until SOMEONE finally called 911. Unbelievable....just absolutely UNBELIEVABLE.

I am 60 years old. I grew up on Michael's music and still ache over his death and probably always will. It is an inexplicable sadness that comes when we lose people with whom we feel a deep connection like JFK, Marilyn and Princess Diana. With the exception of his children who obviously gave him great joy, I think his life was a living hell. One of the most telling comments came from Elizabeth Taylor who said in an interview sometme before Michael's death: "He was betrayed by everyone!" What a tragedy...

Susan   July 30th, 2009 6:03 pm ET

The professional and ethical lines crossed by all doctors and medical professionals involved is beyond comprehension. FIRST, DO NO HARM is the oathe ALL medical professionals abide by. Does a parent give a child the pretty colored red cough syrup that looks like candy just because they ask for it? Of couse not! As parents educate their children and keep them safe, so goes the same for medical professionals with their patients. I am an RN on a busy surgical unit and I am constantly educating my patients and protecting them from harm. If I did what some patients requested in terms of medication or not following a standard of care, out of their lack of understanding, it could certainly put them in harm's way and possibly kill them. So, I educate, educate, educate. FIRST, DO NO HARM !

Sarah   July 30th, 2009 6:18 pm ET

Its a tragic situation all the way around. Michael Jackson was on the brink of a major comeback tour and to have that end so dramatically and tragically makes no sense. MJ was an icon superstar in his own right, an amazing father, and a wonderful person. The events that happened on that faithful day in his home on June 25 are not known. Maybe we will never know what happened. We can either dwell on the fact that a good man met his end in such a tragic way or we can celebrate the life he led and keep him alive by remembering the legacy of his music. We are not promised tommorrow so live today as if it was your last. No one that i know lived that moto like Micahael did.. From humble beginnings to superstar stature. You we're among the stars on earth now you again are among the stars in the celestial heavens. Though you aren't with us you leave three bright starts to carry on your legacy.

lil_diva   July 30th, 2009 6:18 pm ET

MJ rest in peace..........
im so sry for the kids they must of cried alot
to loose your dad at a young age is really hard

TSAF   July 30th, 2009 6:20 pm ET

This is just a complimentary blog to all the straight thinking bloggers on here and a shut up to people who don't believe in facts.

Thank you to Linda about the rumors and Michael's name.

Diane the psychologist needs to shut up, I wonder if she uses spell checker in the thesaurus or an editor when she writes article.

Thanks Lori- you are too funny but you are correct like some others on here about Katherine's rights.

Jacqueline Reality in AR – yes and thank you

To Ann – yes and thank you again

To Thinker – your comment makes sense

Thanks Remedios for all your comments.

Jamie on the chef issue – I strongly support you

Nicole S. North Caroline on Michael and Joe's relationship, I agree and I have said this before on Larry King especially since I had a similar upbringing as Michael's and my relationship with my grandma before she passed was excellent but still I had to vent.

Waldo on Diane – you are 1000% correct

Lynn on the media and MJ – I strongly support your comment
New Orleans, LA – I came out at the other end of the stick normal – you idiot.

Stacey – You are a damn fool – whether those kids are his or not it has nothing to do with thim being a racist. He always stated that he wanted to adopt children, plus he had genetic medical issues that he wished not to pass on to his children, he has a right to choose their genetic makeup – you and everyone else have no right to question it. But then again you are idiots, Blacks come in all shades of color including eye color, please travel around the world and you will see that – go to Africa and the Caribbean especially they are there. Some of them are my family members as well. Next consider the fact that he had to depigment his skin so he did not want to traumatize his kids as they got older and make them feel uncomfortable around him. Get the facts straight.

MVM – Yes your scenario sounds plausible on Murray.

Maureen – the anestesiologist – YOu are correct in your comments and people need to investigate this as well as Michael's mental status – MOST GENIUSES have BIPOLAR – I learn this in Medical Anthropolgy and my Psyche courses as well – people need to look back to history and medicine.

Niceole S – North Caroline – you are so right about how Michael felt about Neverland and why he should not be buried there despite what Jermaine says.

Bella – I have always stated that the timing surrounding his death is suspicious and with the chef's comment she confirmed it for me as well.

Lori on your comment about Maureen – Physician are not God – we need to stop propelling them to that status, yes there are a bunch of them who should not be practicing medicine but we must realize they are human are will make errors – but in the case of Dr. Murray and all the physicians who treated Michael throughout the years – they are the ones with a God Complex and they should all loose their licenses.

Pam – therefore you are right that Murray wasted plenty of time.

Jaelle – I support you on the issue surrounding the media's treatment of Michael and the ramifications of their actions – they need to reevaluate this overall but when will that happen, I doubt if ever.

Junior – those stuff you say may be truthful but some are filled with plenty a gossip and no facts – I need facts and not speculations – including the issue surrounding the Vanity Fair article – I hate to say the media is corrupted – you sound like you are more Roger Friedman from rather than a viewer on Larry King – I bet any money that you are Roger Friedman hiding behind some identty. haha caught you red handed.

Sheiletta – yes and no to some of your theories.

Maria A – on Deepak Chopra – you are so right – my best friend would have never done what he did for 15mins of fame.

Pellar – you are correct at the end about Grace R.

Adrienne – way to go I will fast as well with you and Dick Gregory

Kelly about = surgery and anesthesia – I concur

Janith – I agree with the issue concerning biology and I have expanded on it in this blog already. I hope his kids, do like Lisa Maria Pressley and do not get too involved with the media when they get older as a matter of a fact, I hope they never speak with them at all, since they are making a big issue concerning their biology.

Lima – Thank you

Mariau = you are correct about who is responsible for Michael's death.

Junior as I already said to your comments, you are crazy with the Vanity Fair thing and I think you are Roger Friedman.

Elishera, Jerusalem/Israel – I stongly belive, we will never live to see the truth about Michael's life, death and the people who have shielded relevant information to his inner dealings or so called conspiracy against him.

Carol = concerning the issue of all his so-called firends and the nurse changing her stories – I so agree that it is all B.S. – she need to be investigated by the Nurse Practitioner organization for revealing information on Michael – their is nurse patient confidentiality agreements as well as physicians – she is certainly not abiding by the rules.

Rick frm Canada – why would he want to die IDIOT? Leave his kids to suffer by using "ASSISTED SUICIDE" such B.S. – try another angle please.

Monica – you are correct baout whose shoulder his death lies on all the physicians and AEG.

Toni – I agree with you about Mrs Jackson role and her right to appoint an executor – Michael had too many shady people around him after he split from Joe, not that Joe was any better but these people were worst. That is why in the end, he surrounded himself with more blacks as employees than white – sorry to say but it is true and no this is not a racist comment but a fact. I do not trust his executors despite what they did for him in the past, without having someone she can trust there in all the meetings, they can tell Katherine and her lawyers anything to tell her. So forget about the people who are saying that the family is money hungry, that has nothing to do with it, she is trying to protect her son's legacy and that is all that should be look at by the media and the lawyers including the judge who oversees this case.

Anyway, this is what I have to say about these SO CALLED FRIENDS who keep coming out of the wood works and talking about Michael and calling him their bestfriend including Debbie Rowe and Omer Bhatti (although – they have not spoken to the media), I wonder why is it that MJ stated he had no friends but you guys call him your best friend. It appears to me that he was everyone's best friend because of what he could contribute to their lives but deep inside he was alone because you all did not know how to be good friends to him – this story sounds so familiar to me – I so understand what Michael was going through. None of you are good friends, Majority of you are PARASITES.
As for the Omer Bhatti kid – go seek out his parents and his sister who looks exactly like him, so they can tell backward America the truth which is that for them to stop looking for stories every week to speak on Michael's life and report the facts – back in the 90's when Omer first surfaced it was already debunked that he is not Michael's son in Europe and Asiatic continent. I have several women that I call Mom and who label me their daughter, some I look like and some I don't when I die do you think that everyone is going to try to figure out who my real mom is ... NO because I was only born to one person. This boy was a young Michael Jackson impersonator for years – let it go media and CNN – stop listening to Joe Jackson's buffoonary – he is laughing at you guys laughing at him. Thank goodness he is working an angle on you guys. Get a life people.

Looking forward to watch CNN tonight .... I do not trust anyone who was working with Michael under an AEG contract. I think they probably told them to state certain things but OH WELL what can I say. I think the girl is still plugging her darn book.

Lynn   July 30th, 2009 6:25 pm ET

Oh, my heart breaks to read this! How awful it must be for those little kids when all this was happening! MJ loved those kids and brought them up well, indeed.

i lost my parents young and life has never been the same. I pray these children do alright by God's grace.

We all want to know who murdered MJ and justice needs to be done. Hope the truth will come out soon.

SAM   July 30th, 2009 6:34 pm ET

“Dr. Murray usually came down to the kitchen around 10 a.m. to get Mr. Jackson something to eat or drink, but on June 25th he didn’t” do that because MJ already died and DR. Murray knows that waited for awhile and later he yelled “Get security, get Prince”?!!. He delayed as much as he can..

That is so sad after getting 150k a month salary from MJ.

Sue   July 30th, 2009 6:37 pm ET

That doctor was paid $150,000 a month to babysit/watch jackson while he slept under this medicine. Paid pretty well to get preoccupied and let a guy die, don't you think?

Sas Saddick   July 30th, 2009 6:46 pm ET

A very sad and tragic day for the Jackson children. At least they can cherish the wonderful memories with their father. Not many children are in a position to even remember their father. A tragedy for the entertainment world. RIP Michael!!

SAM   July 30th, 2009 7:01 pm ET

Why did Murray called Prince than calling for 911. So, stupid. Murray gave Diprivan to MJ that and SOMETHING WENT WRONG WAY BEFORE 12:26 and MURRAY knows that.

SAM   July 30th, 2009 7:06 pm ET

Yes, got paid 150k a month to babysit/watch jackson while he slept under this medicine. But Murray could not even do that job (Baby-sitting) properly. Now, he lost his 150k babysitting job and he is in trouble giving Diprivan.

Mary U from Ohio   July 30th, 2009 7:46 pm ET

I just watched entertainment tonight... The Chef was on... She said that Dr. Murray never took Prince upstairs with him. She said Michael was moving slow the day before... He said that AEG is working him to hard.. Michael said they are killing me... Here the media is portraying her as a bad person... She said never seen Michael on drugs or doing any drugs.... I believe her....

Mari   July 30th, 2009 7:57 pm ET

Hello Larry,

It's very disturbing that MJ died as he did and to see, to hear, to read all this different versions of the 'facts' are far more disturbing than his death. The thruth is that only GOD, Murray and MJ know what really happened on that room on June 25th.

It's very sad what those kids must have experience...they lost the only person they knew as a parent...but it must be heart breaking also to his family because no matter what people say, they were a family...
We must pray to God to gave them the strength they need now...

Neg   July 30th, 2009 7:58 pm ET

Michael Jackson was one of the greatest entertainers of all time and his legacy will live on forver. His children have lost their father but they will grow up and appreciate his great talent. I just hope that Michael's family will be able to raise these kids in the fashion that he would have wanted filled with love and inspiration.

We have lost one of the greatest and we will feel this void for many many many years if not forever.

simba   July 30th, 2009 8:08 pm ET

Vivien Wolsk "My biggest concern is that MJ’s family, claiming to be so close to him and the children, seemed so unaware of his use of drugs."

Good point, Dr. Wolsk. And could it be because we're being sold a bill of goods as to the extent of MJ's drug problems? Why is it that some people claim that MJ was totally drugged out, barely able to function, and others, who have nothing to gain from lying, say they were unaware of any drug use?

If Deepak Chopra was such a "friend" to MJ, and aware of his difficulties, why didn't he do something about it? After all, he's a physician. If he observed that MJ was in trouble, Chopra had more resources than even MJ's family members to help his so-called close friend. Instead he goes on TV spouting New Age nonsense about MJ suffering from "self-loathing".

Uri Geller is another slimebag. According to Dr. Klein – no honor among thieves – Geller got paid big-time to sell out MJ to Martin Bashir. Now he wants to claim he begged MJ to get help, his face flowing with crocodile tears. Hell isn't hot enough for this jerk.

Elisheva – don't judge MJ's readiness for London by a few moments from a tech rehearsal. He was marking, as was explained, and it was primarily to set the lighting cues. Even so, the quality of his movement in the little bit where he danced was gorgeous.

mary jones   July 30th, 2009 8:15 pm ET

may we all just pray for the kids and the jackson family ,as well for our
self ,and let go and let god,
what do you think will go frist a lie or the truth,
does of us who love mj will truly miss him,

mary jones b,al   July 30th, 2009 8:28 pm ET

people please,why be so mean,saying things that you really dont know , how would you like for someone to dig in your private life,
what went on that day (6/25/09) some you dont need to know ,

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 8:53 pm ET

Thank you Ms. Chase for being Michael's friend.

that_guy   July 30th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

FINALLY ... after all the gobbily goop guests about michael jackson ... a well spoken and interesting guest regarding his last day; eating habits etc

Carol   July 30th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

LEAVE JOE JACKSON ALONE He is not an educated man nor a public speaker.

STRETCH   July 30th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

i feel really bad for his kids and his family. this is a terrible loss for all of them. rip deserve peace

EO, San Diego   July 30th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

Ms. Chase appears to be a very logical sound person. She's not giving away secrets of MJ's life but appears to be telling the truth.

Lisa M   July 30th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Why didnt the doctor have MJ on the floor when he was trying to revive him? It takes a emt to to tell a doctor this?

jeana   July 30th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Why would the doctor come to MJ's house everyday for a few hours- I fond that very odd. What was he doing to Michael duringt these times?

Michelle   July 30th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

I honestly believe that Michael Jackson didn't have to die that day. Everything about this story screams shady about Dr. Murray. You just don't administer Diprivan...ever, in a home. Furthermore, I tend to believe that MJ died a lot earlier than was officially released. That doctor was trying to cover his tracks. I feel for those kids. God bless them and their futures. Thanks for the intelligent interview Ms. Chase. All the best.

lisa from long island   July 30th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

blaming dr. murray for mj's death is like blaming a tobacco plant for lung cancer...let's focus on personal responsibility! this country has become shameful.

Without your show, we wouldn't know what's going on.

EO, San Diego   July 30th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

lmao "Leave Joe Jackson alone"... roflmao

The man has been in the public spotlight as long as Michael has been an entertainer. He knows EXACTLY what he's doing.

Speaking of Joe– what does everyone think of his latest revalation about Omer being Michael's 4th child.

Aima   July 30th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I think Kai is very honest and down to earth lady, there is no reason to doubt her story.

diana   July 30th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Kai, OMG, so many figures... she's there for the publicity!!   July 30th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Thank you for speaking about Michael as a human being.

Linda S.   July 30th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

I loved Micheal ALL my life...Im very happy that this young lady is telling the world the truth about him... Its about time someone did...
RIP Micheal I`ll see you in Heaven...

Sandee   July 30th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

FINALLY Larry, you have a guest that is NOT trying to be someone she is not......Finally a truthful person, telling it like it is...Thank you for the Chef. Lovely lady...   July 30th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

We love you Michael.

margie   July 30th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

something was really happening the day of June 25th and this must be investigated.... Dr. Murray must revel the truth......

brie   July 30th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

She's quite genuine, one of the few staffers who really cared about his well being. gosh i still miss Micheal

Carol   July 30th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

And while I am at it, It is ashame that more of us did not love and nurcher children as Michael did. I can see them sleeping in Michaels bedroom, after all, it wasn't like our bedrooms, it had huge views, chairs, fireplace, big screen tv, and lots of fun things. I truley believe it was a getaway . Stop making it a sexual thing. I am now afraid to babysit, play or nuture children because of all of you who has this sort of mentality.

olivette maddy   July 30th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

The kai Chase interview is the best so far on MJ. great job. she was honest and show mj as a normal and happy man. May his soul rest in peace..

Jas   July 30th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

It is so sad to hear the children losing a parent. I am glad to see people who knew MJ are coming forward and setting things straight... not motivated by money.

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Kai, it is good of you to share your recollections on the blog page with all of us. Thank you for loving the MJJackson family. God bless you, stay strnog and true.

Sheila   July 30th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Tyrone   July 30th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I remember watching the Dr.Phil Show there was a episole about racist white police shooting unarmed black Americans. The white officer after shooting the unarmed black man put a gun of his in the dead black man right hand. Turns out the black man from birth NEVER could use that right hand it was impossible to handle that gun let along shoot at the police officer! Today cops don't even bother planting guns on unarmed black Americans they know the mostly white judges will give them a pass. They just claim they thought he or she had a gun so they had to fire 41 or 50 bullets at the unarmed Americans. To today whites that make the stupid comment"That race relationship are better today then in the pass. Hell no! It is getting worse in some cases the country is going backwards. Anytime a 92 year old black woman home along is murder by white racist cops 39 bullets to end her life. Then handcuff left to die on the floor of her home while the racist lowlife cops put weed in her home . To try and justify the murder of a 92 year old black woman! Or Sean Bell 23 year old unarmed American shot dead in the back in a car. His passeger shot18 time and lived UNARMED and the other passeger shoot 4 times UNARMED!Where is the white leadership why is it that only black Americans see the evil in these incidents? Given the fact that black Americans are fighting and dying in two wars protecting the rights of all Americans! Liberating Iraqi and restoring their civil rights in their country only to keep being disrespected in America is WRONG! President Obama reasonlly commented on the incident of the black Professor that was arrested in his home after the officer confrimed it was his resident. The President stated that the officer acted stupidly and he was RIGHT ! This is the leadership needed to idenify wrong behavoir in law enforcement! NO MORE PASSES!!! The President was right to call the act of police STUPID….. Gates was WRONG to call the incident RACIST! There should have not been a arrest . The stupid cop knew that ! That is why the charge was dropped before the President made his comments! Somebody other then the President deam the incident STUPID! With both black and white fighting and dying in Iraq for Iraq liberation it is disrespectful to all Americans to foolessly arrest a American at his home after finding out the reason for your call was WRONG!!!! The problem for me was the stupid cop comments that the President disrespect all polices! Remember .Boston police was very stupid when just because a white man stated his wife was murder by a black man.! Disrespected any and all black men in Boston … Only to find out later the white man murder his wife and unborn child! ….So this incident shows the Boston Police are still stupid! It also tells me that the Cheif of Police lack the leadership needed to stop the stupid! Now the world knows the tape didn't show Mr. Gates yelling like the STUPID Police Sgt. stated. Also the caller did mention race HISPANIC so the idiot Sgt. was color blind and STUPID!

sara   July 30th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I thought Ms. Chase added a much needed dimension in the conversation about Michael Jackson. She had nothing but nice things to say about him and gave a picture of a loving family. She did not appear exploitive of their relationship and was respectful of their privacy. It's interesting to note how this compares with the perspective of Dr. Murray. At the end of the day, I absolutely loved Michael Jackson's music, his talent as a performer (Check out his Live in Bucharest DVD, it will blow you away. I will continue to cherish his legacy as the greatest entertainer EVER!!!

TM   July 30th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Anyone else find it strange this woman Kai has a cookbook out about MJ's favorite recipes LESS than a month after MJ's death?

Talk about capitalizing!!

I want to hear what witnesses have to say, but not while they are lining their own pockets just moments after his death.....weird!!

I would be ashamed if I were her, and all these other people who saw the strangest things on earth - a doctor carrying oxygen tanks out every morning and stood there and did NOTHING!
I honestly don't know how these people wake up and look at themselves in the mirror every morning.

She says he was "charming" and she "loved him" – but stood there while the most vile, disgusting things were happening.

And now she's schlepping out PRIVATE gifts given by the children?
Who ARE these people?

Poor Michael......NO ONE care about him that was ever around him – NO ONE! :'(

well....except that very, very heroic nurse - you were the ONLY one who tried to help lady....may God Bless you.
(the others....trying to make money off MJ and PRIVATE things like stuff his children did – what's she trying to do – start the auction off to the highest bidder now - how transparent - you watch!! - you know where you all can go)

Mari   July 30th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

I cant believe the hate in this here

thank you Larry for your awesome shows

MJ in life as in death remains an enigma.

I will miss him very much,his music touched my soul.

Jewellyn   July 30th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

There are too many speculations about Michael's death. We need to wait for the proof/ evidence. Michael was a private person and now his entire world is exposed. His soul needs to be at peace.

Let's look at the positive aspects of MJ's life. There is a song that I love, 'May the Work I've Done, Speak for me.' It's simply saying that what I do while I was living should clearly tell all.

Michael Jackson was a good person. I hope all goes well for his children and his family.

Trey   July 30th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

From the way MJ's chef is talking proves that MJ wasn't as different as the media tried to make him out to be. She says that he ate lunch with his kids everyday,and that the house was full of good energy. It is still hard to belive that MJ is dead, and that is a day that I also never will forget. RIP MJ, and I hope everyone continues to pray for his kids. They loved their dad and he loved them to. From what I understand they had a very good relationship, and I can only imagine how hard it must be for them, knowing that their dad is really gone.

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Is there any answer yet as to why the 'gentleman not breathing' was not identified in the 911 call as Michael Jackson. I ask again whose voice is that on the 911 call? why wasn't Dr Murray on his own cell from the beginning?

marie   July 30th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

bless those kids, my heart hurts. something isn't right

Dawn   July 30th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

I'm young as well, only a few years older than Prince. My father was recently put on life support (roughly 2 years ago) and i was devastated. Luckily, after 3 more months in 3 different hospitals, he came around and survived 3 major scares. I would've been shattered if that was the end. My sympathies to Paris, Prince, Prince the 2nd, Omer and the entire Jackson family. Michael Joseph Jackson's body may not move and dance like it used to, but his soul and spirit will never stop. I used to not know much at all about Michael, and didn't care to be honest, but when he passed away, I was in so much shock I had to learn everything available about him. Now I find myself defending him all the time.
Michael Joseph Jackson – R.I.P Your music will continue to inspire millions, and no matter what anyone says you've always got millions of people on your side, and you can count me as one of them.

Thsi is so sad for these children. My GOD what they muST be goiNG threw there dad has died and they were all there . Its just so sad. My heart goes out to them. I truly feel these Drs all should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. They all do it and get away with it and its all becasue they have so much money..They have NO REGARD for human life all they car eabout is $$$$$$$ in there pocket. I hope they all rot in hell.I hope this will wake up the DEA and they get crackingon all these pain management place's that have there own pharmacys in there office and give large quanities to there patience. Go in and close them down. Before it continues until millions more die!!!!


Crystal Ray   July 30th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Hello Larry and readers...I think it is important to remember who everyone is talking about here- MICHAEL JACKSON- a world icon!! I am appauled at the media's constant reporting, Michael was this, Michael did that. I am so glad Ms. Chase his cook cleared up somethings. He looked tired day before, but nothing unusual. Whatever happened in the hours up to his death, will come out! I feel its not going to be anything good. Until more is known and the facts are brought to surface, BACK of MEDIA!! Show some respect For Michael and his family....

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Been watching the video – The Wiz and see Michael JJ shine so absolutely wonderfully and naturally, along with Diana Ross and the rest of the amazing stars. Lena Horne also grabs you heart with the finale song. It is such a great production-NO idea why critics shooed it down so much back then.. it is worth replay over and over-just like the best of all other mucicals. MJ is wonderful as the scaercrow. Congrats again to Qunicy Jones also.

Jenn   July 30th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

I mourn the death of a gifted icon who left us way to soon....sooner than he wanted or probably expected. I KNOW he wouldn't have wanted to leave his beautiful children, his mother, family, friends or his fans for that matter. This tour meant so much to show his children the man who made the music...the man the world loved despite his differences. It's not fair!!! Michael should not be gone!! He should be here with US....his children, his family, his friends, his fans...he should be here!!!! I will NEVER forgive Dr.Murray!!! He chose to save himself that day before he chose to SAVE our Michael. I will NEVER forgive him. In a day when the world sees so much suffering...he stole a piece of our gentle beauty from all of us that day. I mourn the lost Michael and will every day....and I will never forgive the man who stole him for all of us!!! Not ever.

I'm so so very sorry Mrs Jackson & Family, Prince, Paris and Blanket – I am so so very sorry. Michael didn't want to go...know that but also know...he will never be far from he is your Angel – always wrapping his loving wings around you. He is the brightest star in the sky, the gentle breeze, the warmest sunshine...please, seek solace in the love he had and always will have for all of you!!!! God Bless you all and God Bless Michael and please free him now from all of his pain and suffering and please let him know how much the world really did love him and now, misses him...every single day. Amen.

Thanks for continued coverage of all about Michael JJ. Larry thanks for calming yourself down through your approach to and less flabergasting about Michael Jackson.

del   July 30th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

I appreciate the chef, for speaking of Michael in a positive light. At least someone can come forward and talk about him being a good person, a loving father. No one is perfect, we all have our shortcomings but some especially the media, seem to have forgotten that.
Most of us have no idea how we would handle stardom 24/7 like Michael had to, some would definitely go crazy with all the attention.
I love Michael and his music, and his imperfections would not change that.
Pls, let him truly RIP....i wish, but i know the media would not let this story end.

Tyrone   July 30th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Please please Mr. King have me on your show. Change the show to a town meeting! No more then 50 people ! I really believe I can help Americans both black and white to understand race relationship!

Janet   July 30th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

I hope Michael Jackson's children, family and love ones are comforted by the continual loving support of his fans. He was an incredible man who gave a great deal to this world and who didn't ask for anything other than to be treated with the respect he gave to all and which he so deserved.

In regards to Deepak Chopra ... I have been continually disappointed with him since MJ's passing. He trusted him and he is betraying that trust by speaking publicly about private and confidential interactions. If he, Chopra, witnessed things that caused him concern or worry for MJ ... why did he not intervene and offer assistance? Personally, I hope I never have a professional or friend who breaks my trust like he is doing to Michael and his family.

Larry / CNN – thanks for your continued reports on Michael Jackson. I will always be a fan of his.

Sheletta   July 30th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

referring to : M. Dye-Detail comment.

Thank you for pointing out some improtant information on Michael Jackson. First, of all they should not be referring to Michael as "Wacko" or Jack'O, neither of them names is the name he was given at birth. I am a little guilty myself, when I use the the addiction- which I only use when referring to the painkiller addiction. One important point your made that I've also said was that Michael was so lonely, and by these that was closest to him use him and did not really be there for him. Anyone who if by good mind paid attention to Michael's video's you could see in his eyes that he was lonely or really not happy. No one bother to see any of that. With the Media they never had anything good to say about Michael, it was always bad. Just like now even he his death, they are still dragging his name to the mug, as I've mention in some of comments.

Referrrin gto CRNA-
This is great to see someone that comments as an Anethesia, a person that is licensed in this type of field that admistrate this drug. That, what the problem about Dr Murray, he was not an Anesthesia, but a Some say Medical Internist or Cardiologist, not sure what he field is but I do know it was not anesthesia. He also, using this type of drug in a Home Setting, which it never should had been done.

I had a bad experience in the Operating table, with anesthesic give to me base on wieght, which in turn I stop breathing, and the doctors had to insert a tube down my mouth/thoat, after I had awaken I started vomiting up white foam from the after effects. So, after that one event whenever I had to have surgery, I would relate this information to the Anesthesologist, only one paid attention to what I was saying because He actually read the notes that was in my Medical chart. He was kind enought to tell me with my second to last surgery, that when I go to sleep and when I wake up his face will be the first I see. This doctor stay with me, he also told me that he read my chart and that whenever I am under, it is hard to bring me out, so he wanted to make sure I go out right away. Now, with Dr. Murray, he said after giving Michael Dirprivan, he left the room. That was a BAD judgement call.

As far as the media goes, people are going to have their own opinions about Michael, some good and some bad. But, anyone with common sense should lnow that Michael loved his children and mother very, very muh, so why in the HELL, would he want to take his own life. Come on people. He went to sleep expecting to get up, he was preparing for a Tour in London, and then he had his Children, I am not buying that he commited suicide, no way. This what I've been talking about for the longest, some people are narrow minded, and becuase the media print/news say this person is "Wacko" or Jack'o that you all ready condened him as the above names(which I do not approve of these name callings), Michael was an Human being, most importantly he was a Parent with children who depended on him every living second. So, please stop using those names and dogging him so much, it is wrong due to the fact that he is not here to defend himself.
I HOPE THAT ONE DAY HE MAY BE ABLE TO TRUELY REST IN PEACE, without all this trash that is being us.

Barbara   July 30th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

I agree we have been told Conrad Murray came at 9pm and stayed the night, now Kai says 9am and leave about noon. So which is it. If he ran diprivan and wasn't even in the house that's 1st degree murder.

Kai was disingenuous, thrilled to be back at the stars house looking the other way like all the staff. 2 oxygen tanks brought down from his bedroom daily, from a 50 year old man everyone said looked "healthy" and was jumping around on stage.
Probably using her name as one of the aliases was a condition of her re=employment.

This is so clear MJ was dead whatever time the so called DR. found him....he had to clean up the site, let the diprovan levels fall as they would rapidly, call and get his medical records and any other incriminating evidence removed from the so called Dr's storage unit.

A cardiologist does not panick, and they function in auto mode as do intensive care nurses in ER situations.he knew dam well time was of the essence unless time meant nothing because Michael was all ready dead. The paramedics said he was dead, no heart beat no breathing equals clinical death. Diprivan stops breathing, which leads to no oxygen which leads to the heart stopping.

Nail the "good" DR. for 2nd degree murder

Reubena   July 30th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

Hopefully someone else out there sees this but there is something really dodgy about Deepak Chopra and Uri Gellar. Poor MJ with friends like these who would need enemies! I pray that MJ's children will be discerning enough to develop "true friendships" because unfortunately they live in a world where people go to all lengths for the love of money.

katherine   July 30th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

I THINK....????? dr murray hooked michael up to the iv meds watched him for a while ... feel asleep on the job while monitoring michael ...& woke up to a lifeless michael & ran downstairs in a panic !!

if he was doing this night after night for michael dr.murray's sleeping habits were off would be very hard to stay wake alone and monitor someone in that type of setting each night ....

& remember michael got home just after12am uuuummmmm ????

marialawgirl   July 30th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Michael Jackson, a legend, has left this world unnecessarily. I believe, as his friend Dr. Deepak Chopra indicated on LKL soon after his tragic death, that Michael Jackson was an addict. I wish someone could have saved him from leaving us. I miss him. He was larger than life when he was still with us. In saying that I wish someone could have saved him, I think that is what should have happened. Then he would still be here on Earth with us to watch his children grow up. I feel for the Jackson family for their terrible loss.

Brooke Shields and Berry Gordy captured MJ's uniqueness and kindness in their eulogies at The Staples Center. I think the terrible fire accident during a Pepsi commercial that MJ lived through is what triggered his dependence on narcotics. I believe he was a very good man who wanted the best for everyone. I heard he never said an unkind word about anyone. I do wonder, however, what Berry Gordy was referring to when he said "Michael made some poor choices." I wonder if that was a reference to drug use or certain on air comments or acts over a German balcony that once occurred. A part of me wishes that Michael Jackson and I had more time together. I saw him from a few feet away when he was a guest at a hotel I worked at. He was a beautiful man with an apparent gentle soul. Human beings cannot conquer such powerful drugs and he was no exception. I think it is wrong for any doctor to have perpetuated this bad situation. Bad for everyone. My heart aches.

lani   July 30th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Its sad that mj is gone.but its nice to know that he is human afterall.but I'm really sad that Idid not get the chance to see him perform in a concert.I will miss you Michael.

Stacey   July 30th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

I don't understand why Dr. Murray would call out for Prince knowing his father was dead????.. What 12 year old wants to see their father laying there dead???? My heart and prayers go out for Prince, Paris, and Blanket...They are going to need all the love and support they can get........ Time heals all wounds................About Michael not eating or being anorexic, what people seem to forget is Michael has always been a thin guy, yeah he might have been a little thinner than he normally use to be, but he was also 50 years old about to be 51 in two months and working out and rehearsing almost everyday and the stress of the concerts........People need to just leave him alone and finally let him rest in peace.......Honestly I think he should have already been put to rest....And not at Neverland, that shouldn't even be a choice because he said it, he NEVER wanted to go back to Neverland in life, why would he want to go back in death... It just doesn't make sense....People need to stop trying to make money off of him..................I'm getting so sick and tired of the media always talking about his addiction to persricption drug, enough all ready we got it, it was never a secret that he had problems with persricption drugs, the only thing that is shocking is the diprivan...But I strongly believe that him allegedly using it is not his fault because someone wanting to make a dollar off of him had to introduce him to diprivan, therefore theres the reason for him growing dependent on it. Doctors are really quick to give out those perscriptions escpecially to celebs............... I think something just isn't adding up on the day Michael died............20 mintues to call 911, regardless of knowing the exact address, theres no excuse for waiting that long..........People taking things out of Dr. Murrays storage hours before Michael was reported to die........Does it make sense to you, because it doesn't to me...............Foul play, maybe??????????????....................But anyways REST IN PEACE MICHAEL, I LOVE YOU, WE ALL LOVE YOU.......MISS YOU NOW AND FOREVER.........................

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Kai's description and reflections were very heartwarming and easing to know that Michael did fulfill his position as a good daddy. Prayers are for their own Peace and Serenity. I feel Kai had great respect and caring for Michael and am so glad she was there for his Organic foods and nutrious foods for his family.

gloria   July 30th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Face it folks, no matter who says what about MJ, he is going to be labeled "an addict"... "they" are all ready setting the "stage".... so they can collect their "blood money".....get a grip people, this was a conspiracy and the target was MJ ....look at the insurance policy that AEG had for MJ... FOLLOW THE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ that is what this is all about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you really think anyone out there (with the exception of the fans) want to avenge MJ's death???? The answer is NO. This was MURDER for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ it was planned and executed... nothing here is coincidence... the waiting time before calling 911, heating up of the bedroom to keep the corpse warm and body temperature up.... it was all staged.... and the toxs report and time of death... they will all come back just the way that the powers that "be" want them to.... MJ was an addict, he had other drugs in his system at the time of death... doesn't matter what the Dr. did... or didn't do..... he won't be charged with anything... once again, $$$$ will prevail and they will get away with MURDER....I sincerely hope that the "powers that be" rot in hell....
The sad news is that MJ's kids have lost their DADDY.... people are so cruel for the almighty "buck"...

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

And great day that Katherine and Debbie are on the same page keeping the agreements and wishes of Michael JJ. I am proud of them especially 'cause they are not buckling to all the other speculations or accusations. It is good to hear the custody and visitations are to be respected and upheld. Debbie is to be commended for respecting the agreements and trust that MJJ had in her. She has given lots of love for him.

SKTS   July 30th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Although I'm glad Kai Chase is sharing what a wonderful and loving father Michael Jackson was, I'm not so sure it's a good idea for her to share private things like the children's notes for her. These I see as extremely personal and precious, something which can be tainted by revealing to the public, as often happens. I've always felt that a lot of the public attraction to Michael Jackson is because of the anonymity around his family life and his interaction with his kids. Although he has moved on, I personally would prefer that this still remain private, for the sake of the kids. Their happy moments with their father belong to no one but the kids, and I really wish it would stay with them.

Carol   July 30th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

Kai, there is just one thing, you said that you were released from your job and then brought back due to a disagreement with your salary. That tells me that you most likely were "milking" him for more money too and won. Michael most likely did it for the kids. I CAN READ BETWEEN THE LINES KAI. No wonder you were so happy and nice to him, you got what you wanted.

sara   July 30th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Just a minor point. However as an anesthesiologist, I am hearing Randi Kaye, CNN reporter, repeatedly mispronounce the word Propofol. She repeatedly refers to it as Propofil. Please inform her. Everyone else appears to pronounce it correctly.

br   July 30th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

I heard that they(DEA & ??) founded Rx in Kai name taken from MJ dr home is this true. If so did she know about this and is this why she left in June?

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

Yes and let us remeber those who spoke so well and right about Michael on the day of Memorial– all the love that was there for him.

Susan   July 30th, 2009 10:34 pm ET

I had the good fortune of seeing Michael perform as a child at MSG and at Meadowlands for the Victory tour. Obviously I have always been a fan and am saddened a great deal by his passing and circumstances of his death. The children's devastation is foremost on my mind and how they have lost the love of their lives, their dad. They, at least ,have on another and I wish them a good life.

Ella   July 30th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

I love michael jackson I'm eleven years older than he was and i am still praying for his children and his familey especilly his mother be cause i am a mother also and i dont believe he died on his own someone killed him, someone messed up big time and I pray that God will show the world what happen to michael so that his spirit and his mother and familey will rest in peace.

Chandni S. Malik   July 30th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Do not trust Deepak Chopra, he enjoys talking about the whole issue and constantly betrays a friends (MJ's) trust. If MJ were around and listening to him, he would have given Mr. Chopra an earful!
Miko is a true friend who has maintained both his as well as MJ's dignity.

Barbara   July 30th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

Gloria I hear you.............. I vascillate between a planned and executed murder following the $$$$$,using Dr. Murray or he fell asleep..... Michael died under his watch period...All the other so called drug pusher DR's, got "lucky"

Diprivan could not have been a better way to do it. In a matter of minutes the toxic level in the blood would dissipate because of its extremely short half life. So Dr. Murray had to delay help then it could not be detected as the CAUSE of death, Yes they can detect it in the brain but that just says he used it not what the level was in his blood stream at the time of death.
Out of all the so called drug pusher Dr's the one I would like to know is THE FIRST DR that introduced diprivan to MIchael. He put him on this tragic path. I believe the anaestheologist that traveled in his 90's tour He should go down.

S Meinhardt   July 30th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

I do not do blogs, but I had to thank you, Kai, after seeing you on NBC this morning, LKL tonight, and reading the story of your employment for Michael Jackson and his children, for clearing up what you said you were speaking out about, and that is the fact that MJ ate and ate healthy and ate with his children the meals of lunch and dinner (if he did not have to take his dinner with him to rehearsal). Also, you were there to see the relationship MJ had with all his children and what a wonderful father he was to his children. I lost my Mother at the age of 15 yrs. old and that was almost 40 yrs. ago (and my Mother and I had a very close and loving relationship) and I was taken from my father not long after my Mother passed away due to abuse, so your story touched me deeply in my heart; knowing what MJ endured as a child (being the same as I endured) made him a very caring and loving parent. You seem to be a very kind, caring, and loving person and I am glad that Mrs. Katherine Jackson asked you to come and prepare the food for she and the children and for you to be able to continue the relationship that you have with the 3 children because they need all the people who love them at this time, to help them through losing the only parent they knew.

Chandni S. Malik   July 30th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

Who so ever has wronged MJ and put him through this sudden death has wronged me, God knows how difficult it has been for me to get over this sudden shock and carry on my daily duties of being a mother and a wife....I should not have to deal with this, if he was sick and suffering from something or had an unfortunate accident of some sort than that would still be easier to deal with....I have two kids of my own and I cant imagine what they would deal with if they lost any one of their parents.

Mikki   July 30th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

It sounds like an old fashion set up with the IV bag. One question I'd like to know is on first infusion of this drug into the vein via IV, did this Dr. also put some of it into the bag as well, to keep Michael sleeping. This doesn'r make sense of course, but the it does make sense if they did not have the right machinery as shown in videos, again a puesdo way of keeping the drug in him 'safely' as the Dr. would probably say. Then the bag went empty and I bet the shock of it is what killed him, unless someone also squeezed the IV bag and air got into his vein.. Still, it is unexcusable. I do not think any contract between this Dr. and Michael relaying to giving this drug would warrant Murray getting off from a very serious prison term

br   July 30th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

I am sorry,I got it wrong she(Kai)came back in June and left in May,So is this why the desagreement of salary. Or did MJ used Her...or did the Dr. use her. Is this going to be one BIG SUPRIZE to her when they come to speak to her about the Rx in her name?

Rick from Canada   July 30th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

to TSAF...

try another angle? why is what I am saying so deserving of being called an "IDIOT"?

MJ had done so many extremely odd things in the last 25 years. You think this is impossible? None of it makes any sense. Anything is possibe!

Oh boy.... I was told off .. you feel better now 🙂

Chandni S. Malik   July 30th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

Did anybody wonder why Kai was all smiles and simply too happy for a rather sad topic that she was discussing? I dont know seemed kind of weird to it the book deal that has got her excited?

sunny   July 30th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

gotta love CNN – the Censored No-News channel

will NOT let people post opposing views....hmmmm!!

this must be why people aren't watching I come Fox!

Travis   July 30th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Wonder why Larry doesn't ask her about the sketchy employment schedule?

Anyone else find it strange this woman Kai has a cookbook out about MJ's favorite recipes LESS than a month after MJ's death?

Talk about capitalizing!!

I want to hear what witnesses have to say, but not while they are lining their own pockets just moments after his death.....weird!!

I would be ashamed if I were her, and all these other people who saw the strangest things on earth - a doctor carrying oxygen tanks out every morning and stood there and did NOTHING!
I honestly don't know how these people wake up and look at themselves in the mirror every morning.

She says he was "charming" and she "loved him" – but stood there while the most vile, disgusting things were happening.

And now she's schlepping out PRIVATE gifts given by the children?
Who ARE these people?

Poor Michael......NO ONE care about him that was ever around him – NO ONE! :'(

well....except that very, very heroic nurse - you were the ONLY one who tried to help lady....may God Bless you.
(the others....trying to make money off MJ and PRIVATE things like stuff his children did – what's she trying to do – start the auction off to the highest bidder now - how transparent - you watch!! - you know where you all can go)

Patty Anderson   July 30th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Barbara I have to agree with you. I'm thinking MJ was dead at the time those women were cleaning out the storage shed. the person that placed the 911 call was also to calm for an emergency such as this. Nail that Dr. and throw the key away. May he never be in the medical feild again. Look at his father's past. Dr. Murray's father did things illegally. Like father like son.

Barbara   July 30th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Deepok Chopra was really one of the only true friends Michael had........Deepok didn't need Michael's money, nor would he give him prescription's for narcotics ie oxycontin. He feels no guilt hence he is one of the only ones being honest about Michael/ He also said he would be a whistle blower of many Dr.s he knew was giving Michael narcotics. KUDOS to Deepok

Miko Brando on the other hand lived off of Michael's money for the last 25 years and still does. He is still recieving money for what?

All the years he looked the other way and enabled MIchael down the path to destruction.

DivaDru   July 30th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

As for the addict mind or state of being–it is sad, it is sick, but so real how the person who is addicted has to finangle to keep what will help the body and mind keep functioning. yes- unfortunatley he had a long history of addictions problems, with successes of coming out the throws of it all, but it is obvious now there are many in his mangement cirlces or teams of doctors who should have known better, should have found the way to treat Michael's problems much differently. Even the aliases had to have been questionable by any doctor who had authority to write the script. There is accountability there that doctors should be held to-even the pharmacists. We will hope that people whose names and charcters were used will not be harmed or insulted, nor imposed, too much. These facts are a sad light coming out, but it is part of the addiction syndrome.

Sandra   July 30th, 2009 11:03 pm ET

I know what these kids are going through. All though my father was not a celebrity, I was very close to him, as these kids were to Michael. It is a terrible thing to lose your daddy at a young age; I was 14. Mine has been dead almost 35 years now, and it still hurts. You never get over it; you just learn to accept, and deal with it. I hope they will too. May God be with them and help them through all that they will face in their future.

ruthie   July 30th, 2009 11:10 pm ET

Brooke Shields loved Michael J & vice versa, he wanted to marry her, she said "no" but said to him "Michael, you'll always have me"...they were very close great friends.....when she was very young ....

GaryBD   July 30th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

I thought someone just recently said Michael ate only 1 meal a day. Was that Miko or was it in fact Michael himself? Sounds funny this Kai packed a dinner for Michael to take with him to his rehersals. They have foods there, anything Michael could possibly want would have been there. catered by the best. Kai made it sound like she handed him a dinner, like you'd give a child to take to school.
This woman has been around the rich and very elite for a very long time or so she says. I can't believe she put KFC in the mix along with her culinary prowess. doesn't she know how to make a real mean fried chicken dinner?

Paula   July 30th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

It's really all about the children, or at least, that's what it should be about. Nothing is going to bring their dad back. It's quite clear we have enough screwed up people in the world without trying to tarnish the love and memories the kids have of their father. The media and *cough* experts can speculate all they want, but in the end of things, the only people who really knew Michael Jackson are Michael Jackson and his kids.

Linda from New York July 30th, 2009 11:28 am ET

Lets not forget; a reporter from Vanity Fair snapped that last picture of Michael.

Linda that photo was not taken by anyone from Vanity Fair. It was an article published in VF about the papparazzi Chris Weiss of National
Photo Group.

Barbara   July 30th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

Kai is very suspect, smiled way too much and made herself sound so "loved" in the house. She was there how long total between firings maybe a month and half?????

I totally agree Mrs. Jackson has EVERY right to know EVERYTHING about her son's estate.

The children are the safest now they will ever be sad to say.
When Mrs Jackson dies, the vultures will come in Debbie Rowe will have established some kind of relationship with the kids.........biologically hers and the $$$$$$$$$$$$ in the billions...
she will GET CUSTODY and the $$$$$$. Remember, Michael's will says anyone contesting it will get nothing.

This is a wait for Mrs Jackson to die, then all we will hear about is Debbie Rowe going for everything.........How sad.

Joyce   July 30th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

Kai said Prince was downstairs the entire time and never went upstairs after Dr. Murray yelled out for him. That sure doesn't match what Jermaine Jackson said earlier this week that "Dr. Murray had Prince stand in the room to watch the Dr. perform CPR on MJ and Prince was still tramatized by this."

Proves as I said before, Jermaine and the "from a Jackson family source" to the media ,are all liars.

Also it was reported in 2005 and again yesterday, that Jermaine and Nanny Grace were having an affair in 2005 when MJ was living at Neverland. They kept it a secret from MJ. Gee, now they are together again in Katherine's house. Hummmmmmm?

MaryLee   July 30th, 2009 11:42 pm ET

You have your information right, lets not forget tho that Jermaine does live in upper Azusa with his not legally married wife. This woman is the mother of all of Jermaines children, plus she has one from yet another Jackson brother. Nothing like keeping it all in the family. Yes, Jermaine doesn't tell the truth. Has lived off Michaels $$$ since the group broke up. Joe Jackson said something as well, that this has never happened in his family before. Did he forget about the twin son of his who died and what about his daughter in law who was found in the pool-supposed mob hit. So they have experienced death of a child before-he must have forgot.

Lori   July 30th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

Regarding the cook and the chef.

There are 1 people purported to be cooks or chefs for Michael Jackson. One is female Kai Chase. The other is a black male named Doug Jones.

For a moment there I thought they were one and the same. So theri published reports were confusing.

So I am wondering - how many food preparation specialists does a slender man like Michael Jackson need?

Were they both on site on the fateful day?

Frankly I do not think I can beleive anyone. I though Ms. Chase was disingenious and of course she has her own agenda, to promote her cookbook (why do you think she has a publicist).

Is anyone on the up and up? Does everylne have an agenda.
AND JUST HOW MANY people were in the house – did anyone get a headcount.

Adrienne   July 30th, 2009 11:51 pm ET

Lori, my understanding was that Doug Jones was let go bc he could not agree with a financial agreement with MJ. He did an interview with radar online. AFter he was let go, I am guessing the new one came back.

Joyce, if Grace and Jermaine did have an affair without MJs knowledge, no wonder why he couldn't trust anyone. That poor soul.

kelly-jo   July 30th, 2009 11:53 pm ET

Hi, Not long ago Mark Geragos stated that there was too much coverage on Michael Jackson, anything for ratings, he stated. I have a question for him. Then why do you agree to be a guest on Larry Kings program and share your opinions?

Lori   July 30th, 2009 11:54 pm ET

New theory based on some of the reports of when Dr. Murray was in the house.

Could it be possible he was there to give MJ the propofol that night and that SOMEONE ELSE was supposed to do the monitoring? Then when Doc Murry arrived the other person was gone and MJ was dead.
That unexpected turn of events could explain why Murray went in to a complete panic. Which doesn't make sense Murray's been practicing medicine for years. BUT if he had a missing co-conspirator, a dead MJ, the dear doctor paniced when he realized he was going to be on the hook for the murder.

Deandra   July 30th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

I know how its like to lose someone and one day their gone . But I just have to say keep your head high.

MJJ's (Tinkerbell) in Kentucky   July 31st, 2009 12:00 am ET

This is still hard to take.Paris, Prince I, and Little Prince II (blanket). The lord is your rock which you all must stand on. Your Father, was a great person, warm,loving and the greatest??? Just look up he will alway's be looking down on you three. I love you all very much, Theressa, (tinkerbell)

MaryLee   July 31st, 2009 12:02 am ET

Except for the rule of no employee relationships on company time, Why would Michael even care of they did have an affair, except for his convictions against those things-He did not have a personal relationship with Grace, but it seemed that Grace sure did want one with Michael. Grace by the way went back to London right after the memorial. she is not in Katherine's employ.
Dr. Murray stayed the night most of the time, then he started to go to the rehersals and made a name for himself. He was grating and getting on everyones nerves. Somebody got the info as usual twisted around. The Dr. would leave in the daytime, only to return at night. Makes sense. He wouldn't be needed in the daytime, but $150,000 he should have been Michaels lap dog.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 12:04 am ET

Well , where ever Prince was, under NO circumstances would a DR. stop CPR, to scream for a 12 year old kid.

Are you kidding me. cover up cover up....... see I am trying to save your dad, even though he's been dead for hours.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 12:05 am ET

Another thought– Michael had been a dancer for his entire life. THIS IS IT was going to be the "songs his fans wanted to hear". In other words material he had done and toured previously. How much re-staging and new choreography was going to be needed? Michael new how to do this, his body new had to do this, a life long dancer with muscle memory. When the music comes on the body responds in the way that it knows –he would have still had the moves is what I am saying. So the dancers that needed to work hard were the his backups –the only thing MJ would have to learn is how to interact with them, which wouldn't have take that long for Michael –he had performed these routines.

SO WHY was he working so hard? Why was it 'killing' him as he told the chef?

LaKeisha   July 31st, 2009 12:07 am ET

I'm glad the personal Chef came out to tell what she knew. I knew Michael wasn't anorexic! I always suspected that information was bogus!

LilyB.   July 31st, 2009 12:08 am ET

I believe Michael Jackson committed suicide. He knew he could not "survive" doing the 50 concerts and (like Elvis) he wanted to die before he failed. Jackson knew Dr. Murry give him propofol every night so he took some powerful drug (unknown by Murry) that would counteract w/ propofol and end his life. By doing it this way there was no pain, he just "fell asleep" and the world would see him as this emotionally devistated gifted soul whose life was "hell on Earth."
And, as far as Dr. Murry . . . well, see what happens when you sell your soul for a dollar.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 12:13 am ET


Michael was a drug addict, made by unethical DR's....who took his money and his life and ran.

The laws need to be changed, to be able to prosecute doctors to the fullest extent of the law.

angee   July 31st, 2009 12:13 am ET

I do not trust any of them. period ...

lynn   July 31st, 2009 12:13 am ET

Lori, because they were making him do 50 shows!

Even veiny, muscly madonna doesn't do 50 shows in a matter of months or even a year.

her current tour has 29 gigs and she's a workout-a-holic.

MJ was a perfectionist, so no matter how good of a singer/dancer he was, he wasn't going to just "show up" – – it was going to be good.

Let's ALL remember, he agreed to do ten shows – period.
Then they upped it to something like 30....then 50!!

Can you even imagine the panic that must have set in?
He did NOT want to do 50 shows - AEG Live knows it and everyone around him knew that.

AEG Live and the doctor killed him – that's for sure.

I am so sad and angry at the same time. Michael died too soon. I truly believe Michael was a wonderful person and too good for this earth. If he took drugs, there were plenty of reasons for it. The people he trusted the most betrayed him, not to mention the pain he suffered physically and emotionally. Anyone with half a brain would know that Michael Jackson couldn't hurt anyone. I will always love you Michael. The world lost an angel. May he rest in peace.

alicia   July 31st, 2009 12:26 am ET

Please, Please. Report some good news about M.J. His music, charity work and what he was like as a man. Check out his speech at Oxford University "Heal the Kids" (full text). You will be enlightened.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 12:26 am ET


Your a thinker I like that..........................I take this Kai woman with a grain of salt an obvious agenda she has. But that comment "it's killing me" is interesting. Having anaestetics in your system, muscles , tissues 24/7 from the most unethical use of diprivan apparently nightly courtesy of Dr. Murray, would render his muscles anaestetised. like you say it's true muscles have memory. So he would be working against the doped up muscles, it would be so much more work.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 12:27 am ET

I have questions about the Will. No wonder Katherine Jackson's attorneys are asking for more information.

Marian Haddad   July 31st, 2009 12:29 am ET

My heart is still breaking. I cannot believe the grip and effect Michael's passing has had on so many of us, and then again, I can believe it. I agree with Suzie!!! . . . Let us focus on Michael's successes, Michael's groove, MICHAEL'S SPEECH at Oxford! . . . Make it a two-hour special. Your ratings will go through the roof. Let's watch Michael Dance and cape James Brown, let's watch him sing and dance. Let's talk about the charities he helped, the third world countries that boomed their boomboxes with BEAT IT and THRILLER in Morocco and other countries. Let's just immerse ourselves in the man's genius. All of his fans are seeking and searching for moments of Michael on the radio with Steve Harvey, his laughter, his smile, his charm, his talent . . . we are finding ways to find him, and so, as Suzie suggests, and I second and I'm sure many do, as well, let us applaud his artistic and cultural contributions. You will have the world tune in. TWO HOUR SPECIAL

MarkAGibs3.0   July 31st, 2009 12:29 am ET

The whole situation with Mr. Jackson to me is all history repeating itself the same thing happened to Elvis the same way the diffrence is MJ has three young kids and a secret son that resembles Blanket an MJ said he felt someone was trying to kill him to a friend someones leaving something out and I think the Feds and everyone else should not only question Dr. Murray again but all the other employees besides Mrs. Kai she seems too nice an open to have anything to do with it. I feel the pain that the children must feel I lost my mother at a young age about 10 I'm 16 now an live with my dad but things aren't the same I hope the DNA test for Omar come in soon because he looks just like Michael and Blanket hopefully he'll be there for his siblings in their time of need and be around them with whom ever they stay with.

jack   July 31st, 2009 12:32 am ET

i think we all need to finally understand that he was a good father. the daughter said so and so did others who lived in that house. he was a good dad and that comes way above being a good entertainer.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 12:39 am ET


I said 2 days on a blog after MIchaels's death that AEG realized and was verified by Dr. Murray.... Michael could not do 50 shows.

AEG recieves insurance money on 30 shows...AEG sells the rehearsal footage to Sony, AEG did not have to refund the ticket money to thousands who kept the tickets. AEG is selling the props now and choreography and any thing else they can possibly make a buck off. Probably a styrofoam cup Michael so called drank out of will go for thousands. Pathetic, used Murrays hands and diprivan to kill MIchael. As reported he is worh more dead than alive....especially to AEG

Irene Duford   July 31st, 2009 12:40 am ET

Thank you for clarifying what a great man and father Michael Jackson was. What we hear on the news is so speculative and now that Michael is gone we can see how misread he was while he was living...Like his song..."Tabloid Junkie". I've been glued to the TV to hear and see anything I can about him but on the other hand I don't like when I hear speculation...

I never doubted him in all these years. He was born almost one year before me and I've loved him and his music and dancing since he first came out when we were kids...

alicia   July 31st, 2009 12:41 am ET


I'm so glad someone else has heard the SPEECH AT OXFORD! How can we get the media to release this and make it available to all? It reveals M.J. as man with a true, sensitive heart.

CindyH   July 31st, 2009 12:42 am ET


On Larry King Live, Kai said Dr.Murray had his own room and slept there, but in the blog it says...

" He would normally arrive around 9 a.m. and leave shortly after lunch. "

Which is it?...Isn't there anyone that was directly involved with Michael that can tell the truth OR are they all being paid off to say certain things?

And as for Debbie Rowe.. OH PLEASE! she didn't sell her children BALOGNA!
She was in there like a dirty shirt the day after Michael died. It's only because of the negative media attention that they are calling it "spousal support" The guy is DEAD!

Sugar coat it all you want Debbie..a baby broker is a baby broker. I wouldn't be surprised if you and the Doc cooked all this up just to get Michael's money...offering your womb as a gift...what a joke you are!

Support even after is our society screwed up!

everett   July 31st, 2009 12:46 am ET

It has been sometime since MJ's death. I still think about him each day. Kia, your interview was very indepth and formative. U spoke high of MJ. Thank you for that!! By the way, you are a very attractive and beautiful woman.

Pat   July 31st, 2009 12:47 am ET

Joyce wrote:

Kai said Prince was downstairs the entire time and never went upstairs after Dr. Murray yelled out for him. That sure doesn’t match what Jermaine Jackson said earlier this week that “Dr. Murray had Prince stand in the room to watch the Dr. perform CPR on MJ and Prince was still tramatized by this.”

Proves as I said before, Jermaine and the “from a Jackson family source” to the media ,are all liars.

I agree, Jermaine is a fake and a liar.

Bella   July 31st, 2009 12:50 am ET

Whoever thinks MJ committed suicide is just so .. insane. He loved his children so much, he would never wanted to leave them on this earth unprotected.

His only mistake was he put his life in the hand of a murderer who was disguised as a "professional doctor". This has cost MJ's life. End of story.

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 12:53 am ET

Dearest Kai:

I want to thank you for the absolute class you showed today on the Larry King Live show. So many people in this lifetime have betrayed Mr. Jackson, people he believed were truly his friends. People he believed truly cared. Mr. Jacksons children now have a lot of life to live without their father, how very very tragic. I am a long time fan of Mr. Jacksons, having met him in Vegas briefly. In that short conversation Kai, he changed how I viewed Him and the people I am surrounded by. His heart was pure and kind. He was a loving and devoted father to his children and I know that in these children, his children, he had finally found true joy and utter happiness. I understand that this must have been such a tragic and difficult day for everybody in that home. I lost my mother in 2003, she was murdered. She was here one moment and gone the next. It is shocking to live that experience.
You are a beautiful and classy lady, and one who cooks both in and out of the kitchen. Shame Mr. Jackson had not met you, or one such as you much sooner, he may have not led such a tragic life. Who knows Kai, you may have been perfect for one another. I pray you will remain in touch with the Paris, Prince and Blanket. It would be so sad to see all those that they were close too fall away. Losing their " daddy " is hard enough. It seems you developed a genuine bond with them and that will go a very long way to healing those children and grooming them for success in their futures. I pray you also find comfort in all of this Kai. We both know I'm certain, that Michael was not finished his work here. He was not prepared to leave his children this early in their young lives. I remember when he said " he was going to live forever ", and I believed in my heart is anybody could pull that off, it was Michael. I am feeling his loss so deeply for I will never forget his smile and his laughter that was just so infectious. I guess life goes on, I just wonder if people understand what a different and empty place has been left behind in the world now that Michael has left us forever. It just seems like a bad dream.. it just seems so wrong..on every level ..wrong. Please take care Kai and thanks for taking care of one of the most passionate and loving people I was ever fortunate enough to have met, as well as his children. Thank you for being honest, loyal, truthful and a true friend to Michael, he needed that in his life. If Michaels children grow up to be anything like their talented and kind hearted daddy, the world will one day come alive again with music, dance and song and we will feel Michaels pressence in our lives once more.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 12:53 am ET

I love the lap dog. LOL. very funny but true.

Lily B
I Dont think Michael commited suicide. There is absolutely no way he would have intentionally left his children. The Michael Jackson I remember would have still given all he had to do this. I do think he was in absolute distress over it, therfore his insomnia would have been unbearable. So thats where the good ole doc comes in. Michael trusted him, and died doing it.

Pamela   July 31st, 2009 12:53 am ET


Barbara   July 31st, 2009 12:54 am ET


I agree with everything you just said. I loved MIchael, his contributions are timeless and endless.

However, those that are responsible and aided his past 25 year decline, into a tortured, suffering soul should be talked about, prosecuted, stripped of any credibility and exposed.

This includes the "friends" the plastic surgeons, the "for hire" drug pusher Dr's, the financial robbers, the bad counsel well just about everyone around him apparently. Unbelievably tragic.

Chan Tei   July 31st, 2009 12:57 am ET

I too,read elswhere (and believe she said tonight on the show) that the Doctor would arrive at 9pm and she would see him in the am bringing down oxygen tanks and retrieving MJ's breakfast and then he would leave. So I'm confused at the inconsistencies...maybe this 9am in this article is a typo for 9pm.

Also, I was concerned with ONE thing Kai stated tonight...she stated that she never thought anything of the Doctor staying/being at the house with MJ and that MJ was in very good health. So if you're working in house where your employer was healthy and suposively there were no other sick people in the house...HOW COULD YOU NOT THINK ANYTHING OF A DOCTOR CARRYING TWO BIG O2 TANKS DOWNSTAIRS EVERY MORNING??? That just makes no sense..a blood pressure monitor, stethoscope, thermometer, vitamins, or even a full doctor bag maybe...but oxgen tanks..why would a healthy person need oxygen tanks??? I'm not saying she's at fault for not noticing or even inquiring about it, because that was not her place but in hindsight you can't possible still think that was normal.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 1:04 am ET


Please.... Kai was around MIchael all of a month and a half total, inbetween being fired.

She thought oxygen tanks being taken out by the quack Dr. Murray, daily was ok....she displays notes written by the kids on national TV immediately, she writes a cook book of Michael's foods immediately.

You can't see an agenda here.

Umaru   July 31st, 2009 1:11 am ET

Thaks Larry for showing Justin Barret clearly to the world through your
your program. I can asure you if they don't dismisse him from the
MILITRY his days are numdered. His already a dead dog. Within the
United State and around the world.

Will P.   July 31st, 2009 1:12 am ET

It doesn't matter how Michael died. Sending Dr. Murray to jail will not
bring him back . It's still hard to deal with the King's death. British
actor Rupert Everett said Michael was a freak and is better off dead.
Mr. Everett is jealous because nobody knows who he is. If he died and
it was announced on CNN, everyone would say who! I miss M.J.
everyday. We love you Michael, you gave so much to us over the
years. You worked so hard to be on top one more time. But Michael
you were never not on top. M.J. was last star we will ever see. We
must let him go, even though it hurts. I hope M.J. has found the peace
and happiness he searched for in life. M.J. forever in our hearts.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 1:17 am ET

Thats why Michaels mother is asking to see the contract Michael supposedly signed to do 50 shows. She said he had originally said 10. Then he agreed to 31 shows, but only 2 a week. That is what he told his mother. She said she was worried then { this is coming from her attny}. Then she finds out later on that AEG had upped it to 50, 3 days a week. She has said that she doesnt believe Michael agreed to this, but that he was told he was going to. AEG will not let her se the contract, or give her any information at all. If they have nothing to hide, what would it hurt to let her see it?
Then, when Kai was laid off, she stated that Michael looked great. but when she returned, she said he was different and tired. So my question is: was it when he was only going to do the 31 shows, that he probably knew he could do at 2 days a week, that he looked good and energetic. And when she came back, could it be that his tour dates had been increased to 50 shows at 3days a week, and the stress was starting to take over?
Mrs.Jackson is worried about this, because she only knew about the 31-2, and she had been talking to Michael almost daily since rehearsals started. He didnt tell her about the increase until way into rehersals, she feels that something was not right. I cannot blame her for wanting to find out who is responsible for her sons death. wHether it be by forced stress by AEG or at the hands of doc murry. But as a mom, I sure would want to know.

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 1:18 am ET

As the facts unfold this becomes more and more heart breaking.
I can hardly believe I'm saying these words because I love Michael.. since meeting him in Vegas, I have loved Michael, but " Michael Jackson was an addict and died and addict" So, I ask you, who is responsible for this? 19 fake names in order to aquire pharmacuticals, including using the names of his chef Kai and his son Prince. How can this be?? Oxygen tanks brought down daily? how can this be?? Where was his family?? Where was Janet? Where was Latoya?? I would have chewed through the gates and the door to access my brother if I believed he was suffering from a dangerous addiction, that could have ended his life. This is not a new addiction either. Michael was obviously addicted for many years and nobody knew?? or were they simply afraid of being cut off from the glorious lifestyle, the glamor, the fame.. and NeverLand?? Miko, Michaels dearest friend, you did not know your best friend was an addict??
Dr. Murray, your job as a physician was to keep Michael alive. To get him help and express clearly and loudly if need be to get Michael the help that he needed to get straight and to be here for his children, not to take his money and eventually his life. Even if that meant having psychological evaluation done..a form one... anything..Notifying his mother, his sisters.. his brothers.. ANYBODY!! Michael had illegal perscriptions in his home and many of them. You had what you needed to get him help and you failed. You failed in a big big way.
I think what hurts me most of all.. is knowing I live in a world where
people are so empty and evil. I am taking this personally.. I am taking this to heart. I am heart broken..I am shattered.. I feel guilty, because life will go it or not.. and well, quite frankly I just don't.

I continue to pray for thehappiness of Michael Jackson children and his

Toni   July 31st, 2009 1:27 am ET

What doctor said that?

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 1:29 am ET

Do you mean Dr. Klein ???

MaryLee   July 31st, 2009 1:32 am ET

Maybe she meant she would see Murray at 9am and then he would leave after lunch. She stated she came to work in the morning, so she would not know who came into the house after she left. Wonder why she had to leave? such a huge home, what would happen if Michael would want something to eat at 3:am? I think when Michael got home at 130am, he probably stayed awake until he unwound which could take a long time. What I don;t get is Murray said he gave this stuff to Michael several times. Has anyone here ever had any kind of anesthesia? At a hospital, they usually still monitor you for at least an hour or so after, and when you are driven home, you still feel goofy then it goes away and you just go to bed because youre tired. It does work on the heart, it depresses your breathing, etc. even if you'd need an operation, a doctor would not keep giving this stuff to you every day in case you needed more surgery.

I have no thoughts about Uri Geller except he was a big deal in his own time, bending those spoons-and then it was found out that he was nothing more than a glorified magician-a fraud, he duped people for years, so I do not believe anything he says. Always wondered what happened to him, but here he is, riding on Michaels coattails. I bet those coattails were a big burden to Michael, having ot resigning himself to a life of blood suckers and yes people who would smile at his face, and kick his arse at the same time.
I wonder why he wasn't closer with his brothers to protect him-they really never did, for they as well were riding those coattails and now some of them are pannicked, their gravy train went off the tracks for them.

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 1:40 am ET

Did anybody see Sanjay Gupta using propofol live on TV yesterday??
How quickly it took that man down?? In seconds... and his heart stopped beating and he had to be instantly intabated. Was Michael being intabated nightly as well? As in a breathing tube down his throat in order for him to access oxygen?? His kids were allowed upstairs to see their dad in a drug induced coma ???

How did this humanly happen??? How can this be ???

Mary Lee
I think there are different kinds. I've had 2 major surgeries where I slept for a very long time after and had to be helped to the washroom. But I have had out patient surgeries where as soon as I woke up, within like 20 min. I was fine. Not well enough to drive, but functionable. But ,I was never told what I was being given. Some doctor somewhere introduced him to this crap, and made him think it was safe to do. I live in a small town with a husband and wife doctor team from south africa. They are wonderful, thank God.

lydia   July 31st, 2009 1:59 am ET

MaryLee – this diprivan works differently than traditional anesthetics.
It's designed for minimal down time, so the patient basically "wakes up" refreshed and ready to go.

Now, having said that, I just a medical report that explained why it is ONLY used for medical procedures and is NOT a sleep aid.
That is because it does NOT allow the brain to sleep as you would normally do at night. It actually (for lack of better terms) induces a coma-like state.
People in comas are NOT sleeping.

So, actually, even though Michael would be "woken up" and THINK he just got a nice night's sleep – in actuality – he did NOT.

The reason he used it, was because he had trouble GETTING to sleep – so this would put him out right away so he could "fall asleep" fast.

Someone came up with this hair-brained idea back during the late 90's during his last world tour and some unscrupulous doctor administered diprivan then.
That's why, with his upcoming tour to get ready for, MJ was frantically trying to find someone to do the dirty deed.
I'm sure he knew it was irregular and nor normal, but since some BAD doctor did it before, MJ probably thought it wasn't as dangerous as it really was.

That's why ALL the blame rests with the DOCTOR and the DOCTOR ONLY – - because it is their job NOT to do illegal and unethical things for MONEY –and that's exactly what this doctor murray did.

as for uri geller - he was NOT MJ's friend.
He sold him out - sold MJ on doing an interview with that hack Martin Bashir.
Uri Geller got paid $200,000 to ruin MJ's reputation forever – that was the worst hack job anyone has ever done on another human being – bar none! 🙁

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 2:02 am ET

Don't even get my started on Scmuley.. that shmuck!!!
Michael wasn't even cold yet and he was spouting off his God like wisdom and telling tales out of school. He lost his t.v. show because he was as ass.. I hardly think he has improved much. I think he is a disgusting human being who also knew that Michael was in serious trouble. He did nothing..he did nothing but cash in on Michaels fame.
Schmuely, does NOT walk on water, he never did. He is as guilty for where Michael is as are all of his Doctors. When Michael closed Schmuely out, Schmuely chose to get bitter. How sad.. how tragically and pathetically sad. Schmuely met Michaels family, he knew who to contact to get help for Michael. He chose not too.. he chose to let his friend die instead.

Naiviv   July 31st, 2009 2:11 am ET

The idea that this struggle is still appears to be going on about who is responsible for Mr. Jackson's death is beside me. 1st, the professional that took the job because it was a "one in a lifetime opportunity" for him and making over $1 plus a month choose to take the risks that came with the job understanding that what he was about to do was against all he stands for as a "Doctor." He knew and understood the risks and decided to take them – now he should stand up and in respect to his profession and the man that died in his hands speak the truth. God will use him as a tool to help stop this crazy society we are presently living on allowing the famous and powerful to govern their profession. My heart aches to learn how the children were present at the house when Mr. Jackson died. I pray that the Lord continues protecting them from all the blood sucking vampires that have reappeared recently. Stop the insanity and start praying for these kids and the Jackson family. Pray that God will use this incident to help others who might fall into the darkness of pain medications and depression. May God Bless them and guide them in all they do.

I still can't get over MJ's death. When I watch his videos and dvd's and see all that energy and passion, I find it so hard to understand how he trusted so many selfish people to control him. Its such a shame he was taken from this world. The only consolation I have is believing that everything happens for a reason. I think we are all God's tools. MJ was put on this earth to be the greatest entertainer who ever lived and maybe he died in such a way as to help stop these legal drug pushers and save so many future lives in the process. If at least one quack goes down for this murder at least it will stop him from killing soneone else and hopefully new laws will be stricter and MJ would not have died completely in vain.

Lila   July 31st, 2009 2:18 am ET

kai chase stated that Dr Murray ran downstairs asking for prince to come with him I heard that the doctor needed a witness that he had performed CPR on his dad along with the security guard from what Kai chase matches with what I had heard and if this is the case Michael was already dead at the house not at the hospital as being reported can the medical examiner check the body for the time of death??

My other question is it has been reported MJ had passed a physical examiner in order to get insurance for the concert tour they test for drugs is it only illegal drugs or all types of drugs.. another issue is the promoters the insurance taken out on MJ would only pay out if it was an accidental death they would reportley cash in on 17.5 million but if the death was natural causes no money my question is if the death is ruled an homcide will they be able to collect?? if yes I feel that AEG seemed to gain more money if michael jackson was dead then alive, they conspired to pay Dr Murrary more money if he carried out the death that why he took alot of time before calling for help this doctor had serious money issues that why he was not paid yet until the plan was carried out!!

Could the family make available to the fans a copy of the Memorial Program. I would really love to have one for a keepsake and dont wan to enrich the profiteers selling them on Ebay. The money could go to a trust fund for the kids that Katherine could control. Given the number of people who registered to get tickets, this would ease some of the financial pressures for the family. I am still not over the loss of Michael Jackson and pray for his soul and the protection of his children every day. I too, dont want to hear anymore of the negative and the speculation of what happened to him. Let him rest.

Danielle Robert   July 31st, 2009 2:19 am ET

Michael you will always have a special place in my heart and will be greatly missed. Some of the things that they say about you make me sick! My sympathy goes out tho the family and his kids.

Naiviv   July 31st, 2009 2:21 am ET

The idea that this struggle is still appears to be going on about who is responsible for Mr. Jackson's death is beside me. 1st, the professional that took the job because it was a "one in a lifetime opportunity" for him and making over $1million plus a month choose to take the risks that came with the job understanding that what he was about to do was against all he stands for as a "Doctor." He knew and understood the risks and decided to take them – now he should stand up and in respect to his profession and the man that died in his hands speak the truth. God will use him as a tool to help stop this crazy society we are presently living on allowing the famous and powerful to govern their profession. My heart aches to learn how the children were present at the house when Mr. Jackson died. I pray that the Lord continues protecting them from all the blood sucking vampires that have reappeared recently. Stop the insanity and start praying for these kids and the Jackson family. Pray that God will use this incident to help others who might fall into the darkness of pain medications and depression. May God Bless them and guide them in all they do.

Kat Larstone   July 31st, 2009 2:31 am ET


you just gave my goosebumps. I have been thinking that for over a month now. Michael was not responding to c.p.r because he was NOT breathing. That is said on the 911 tape. I believe in my heart Michael had passed away hours before being found by Dr. Murray.
Infact Michaels heart may have stopped instantly and if he was in his room alone, nobody would have known this. Murray knew this drug was dangerous and potentially lethal. The risks of something truly horrible happening were greater than not when using propofol. He lulled Michael into a false sense of protection, and it cost him his life.
He was giving him c.p.r. on the bed???? are you kidding me?? it reuires a hard surface in order to get the correct compression. He had no adrenaline in his med bag??? a direct needle to the heart sometimes shocks it into functioning again. Somethings rotten in the state of Denmark my friends.. we were are not talking cheese!!
Something really really stinks..

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 2:34 am ET


I agree show this Oxford Speech on national TV


Schmuley is a schmuck and worse *&%%$##)(*&%@

The time of death is difficult.....especially that it was reported the room was stifling hot,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,this would delay the natural decline of body and liver temperature, It would appear his death was more recent than it actually was. You can't tell me in CPR that Dr Murray wouldn't say turn on the air conditioing NOW...Michael was dead for hours before the fake drama began

Michael is in heaven

Dr. Murray among others can get their glass of ice water in HELL

Ya know that dog only hunts if those were the nights MJ was not getting an propofol IV. Constant monitoring was required. So one could assume that on the nights Murray stayed over that propofol was being used. If Murray came in the morning than either MJ was not having the propofol, or someone else was doing the monitoring and Murray was coming in the morning to disconnect the drip,

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:13 am ET

Hey guys - I wondered why no one was on the other blog tonight. Dang...I've been missing everything!

Darice   July 31st, 2009 3:16 am ET

I love Michael Jackson!!! His chef, Kai, did a beautiful job on LKL when she spoke about Michael. We are all missing him dearly...Michael.........I love you more!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:23 am ET

AEG killed Michael. May they burn in HELL where their blood money cannot save them. Randy Phillips, I hope you never get a good night's sleep ever again...

Lori   July 31st, 2009 3:25 am ET

The problem with this is that we are hearing from everyone about what Michael said or thought about something. Everything is pretty much heresay. I wish Michael had done an interview and told us that He was looking forward to London. That he was feeling fine. I wish we had heard more direct from Michael. We only know what other people are reporting and who knows if any of it is true, there are so many conflicts.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 3:30 am ET

Larry can you pur Randy Phillips on your show please? I have some questions for him.

Like was that actually Michael who made the concert announcement in London back in March?

Could we have a panel with MJ tour dancers so we can hear what they were seeing, thinkin and feeling about Michael's health?

Could we have a conversation with the tour insurance provider and the doctor that gave MJ a clean bill of health?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:33 am ET

Where is Miko Brando lately? He's been AWFULLY quiet. When Michael first died, he was on TV non-stop. He probably knew about all of this anyway - the Diprivan drips, the narcotics, the aliases, the shady physicians. He probably enabled. I'm sure Miko knows who the biggest supplier was (Arnold Klein w/help from Debbie Rowe at times). If any of this is true, then shame on him. He had enough access to get Michael's family past the security gates. Why didn't he? WHY?????????????????????? How can he live with himself if he didn't? My God.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:39 am ET

Lori - I personally feel that, despite agreeing to do so, Michael didn't want to do the concerts. In his March 2009 press conference announcing the "This Is It" tour, he just didn't seem like he wanted to be there. Of particular interest to me is the way Michael said 'this is it, okay.' He put on a good face for outsiders and fans, but he hated touring his age, I think he was more content just staying out of the public eye and raising his three children.

I also find it suspect that John Branca does not want to turn over the AEG contract to Mrs. Jackson and her legal team. They want her to sign a confidentialty agreement, to which she refuses. The only reason that this seems feasible is if the contract has a number of concerts less than the 31 and/or 50 concerts they proclaim Michael agreed to.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 3:48 am ET

Nicole you still here? What you doing up so late?

I was just going to post the same thing about Miko

Where the heck has Miko Brando got to?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:56 am ET

Just blowing off steam here. This whole scenario is disgusting. The more I think about it, Murray probably was the so-called physician who did Michael's physical. After AEG's boasting that Michael was in the "picture of health" and passed a "five hour physical." Anything's possible, especially when they're paying a crooked doctor to do it.

Kai was let go from Michael's employ in March 2009. Kai was re-hired in May 2009. She wouldn't know anything about a sinister stage being set between March to May. Even Kai said that when she returned to work for Michael in May, he seemed different. She said he didn't seem to have as much energy as before.

Who in the hell was drugging Michael? Who ordered it to be done? I don't believe Michael was paranoid at all. I believe he sensed that someone was trying to kill him. That's why he used the term in conversation to Kai: "they're killing me." Michael didn't mean it figuratively. He meant that literally.

I hope the police and federal agents do their jobs and arrest ALL the people whoare culpable in the PREMEDITATED MURDER of Michael Jackson.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 3:57 am ET

Lori - I'm off from work. Like Michael, I'm an insomniac. Can't sleep much.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 4:00 am ET

No it wasn't Murray it was Slavik:

Those who watched Jackson perform were convinced that he was healthy enough to tour. Before the tour's formal announcement, Phillips said, Jackson was given a five-hour medical examination by Dr. David Slavik, in which Jackson was given a "clean bill of health."

The good news is that they search warrants in Vegas was looking for a connection to Slavik.

Maybe answers will come.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 4:06 am ET

Slavik? Okay. I hope the answers come soon. I'm not proclaiming to be a conspiracy theorist, but Michael's death is much more than malpractice. Murray may be an "innocent" bystander who's being used as the fall guy by AEG and others who have much to gain by him being dead. Whatever the case, there is a larger picture here - and some very deep pockets to make sure that Michael is painted in the worse, most negative portrait possible. But I'm a free thinker, and I'm NOT buying it.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 4:07 am ET

It's been so hot here all week that I can't sleep either and am turning over MJ conspiricy theories in my head while I listen to a continuous MJ play list on YouTube.

This has got to be one of the longest LKL threads.

I know I was thinking kill was literal as well. And what is up with all the delay for the coroner's report? It's making me nervous, well more nervous. I want something to happen.

I wish we'd had some idea how things were for MJ in June, maybe the fans could have stormed the house and figured out what needed to be done.

Patty Thailand   July 31st, 2009 4:14 am ET

The many days was passed,I was still remembered and kept a whole of all beautiful Michael's memmories,I was very happy when I watched his video clips from Michael Jackson's fans club website.Also, I will always track Michael's news from every where there were reporting Michael's news.
I wish his kids will get costody with the best and warming place the would love to live.
I hope everything ,it will be complete and clear soon.
Thank you.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 4:17 am ET

Lori - I do the same thing at night. I listen to a stream of "All Michael Jackson" radio, and his interviews on YouTube. You're right, this is a very long thread. We need to keep it going too.

As far as the coroner's report, the official excuse is that Bill Bratton is "on vacation," and they're waiting until he returns to release the details. I don't believe that. Something else is up. Time will tell. It always does.

I personally don't believe Murray is the only one who's going to be arrested. Mark my words. If I'm wrong, I'll be very surprised.

LOL, Lori. If the fans had tried to storm in Michael's house to intervene, we'd all have met our maker too...

R. Frances   July 31st, 2009 4:23 am ET

Re the statement in the blog that 9:00 a.m. was the typical time at which Dr. Murray would arrive at the Jackson home - it's obviously a typographical error - should be 9 p.m.

Accordintg to the transcript of Kai's comments Thurs on Larry King Live -–>>

CHASE: Dr. Murray would stay in the evening.

KING: He stayed overnight?

CHASE: He stayed overnight. And normally, he'd come around 10:00, 10:30, downstairs, to get Mr. Jackson's juices or some sort of breakfast for him for that morning.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 4:29 am ET

Lori - also (although I dislike TMZ) - they posted on their website that when paramedics responded to the 911 call, Michael was not in his bedroom, he was in Murray's bedroom, in his bed. They said it is because Michael didn't like people walking in and out of his bedroom.

Where does TMZ get this crap from? I don't believe that. There have been a number of so-called "recollections" of what happened upstairs in Michael's house that day. Only God knows what really happened up there.

TMZ also managed to track down the two ladies, Laquisha and LaQuanda, who went to the storage facility in Houston the morning Michael died. And let me tell you, they are TRUE ghetto hoodrats. One claimed they went to get a box of used needles (how nasty), and the other version is they went to retrieve a chair from storage. I can see that Murray didn't care who he hired.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   July 31st, 2009 4:32 am ET

Well anyway, I'm out for now. Talk to you later, Lori!

Lori   July 31st, 2009 4:52 am ET

Yeah I saw all that TMZ jive. But I think that it may make sense for Michael to be in Murrays room – that was where the propofol was found, and I guess it would be more "private".

I guess Michael was so desperate for sleep. But why something that could kill him? The risk was so HIGH. I know he would never intentionally kill himself, he wouldn't hurt his children that way.

This so sucks.

Lisa S   July 31st, 2009 4:57 am ET

I will write Lisa S from now on as there is at least one more Lisa around now

I think that the chef was a dignified lady. Not to criticize anybody but one of the most intelligent and educated person from Michaels surrounding that has steped forward.

Miko Brandon and the other of his friends seems nice but very naive and not the smartest people. Those people just throiw superlatives over Michael and it doesnt seem real. This person was hired becasue of her talent and professionalism in cooking. A lof the others Michael kept around him were just yes-sayers and admires.

She answered all questiongs without initiating anything or putting any values in the answers. She didnt say he didnt eat well she just said he loved his juices. Then it iwas up to the viewers to consider some glasses of juices proper breakfast for somebody who trains a lot or not. And the questions about the doctor she also answerd very professional. She never said that Prince looked at the dead father. She had never been upstairs, she didnt know what room there was and what happened up there. Again, media adding things without knowing for sure.

And she is the first one to understand that the kids needs to stay in touch with Debbie Rowe. After all she is their biological mother and it is important for their development and identity.

And concerning the cookbook. It might be a healing process for her t o do that. We dont know anything about it. Maybe she is giving all the profit to charity. We dont know.

I think she was a very dignified and classy lady!

Nafila   July 31st, 2009 5:50 am ET

MJ was a person of great personality, simplicity and full of adoration for fans and children......... A great father he was to his children; showering immeasurable love on them.....A terrible loss for the kids....... Hope they move on well in life, treasuring the great moments they spent with their dad.

Ruby Taylor   July 31st, 2009 6:43 am ET

After seeing this interview,if ANYONE has any doubts about how loving and having a beautiful soul MJ had, I just wouldn't know what too think about a person like that. Thank you Larry for having this interview.
Seeing and hearing about the "box of happiness" brought tears too my eyes. MJ was just a normal daddy who loved his children.

Cyd J.   July 31st, 2009 6:47 am ET

I am a mother myself of two grown-up one 19 & 20. it really intrigue me so much why Katherine who is being pictured as a epitome of a "perfect mom" and claiming by everbody that she had a close relationship with his son, did have the tenacity to call the attention of his son to stop doing drugs. If MJ (God Bless his soul) really loved her mom that much, I believe he would have stop using all kind of chemicals just to make him sleep. No, I am not trying to accuse anybody of anything, I am just curious. If I were Katherine, I would beg to my son to stop it, because it kills me seeing my son wasting his life for nothing. I would have never turn my head the other way around. As a mother, I also pain for you Katherine. Please take of MJ kids in the real essence of "caring & loving". I am also a polio victim like you Katherine may be the reason why I am identifying myself with you so much. I love you and I pray to God and Mama Mary to give you the proper guidance and the wisdom to carry on.

Tanaya_Amar   July 31st, 2009 6:59 am ET

Hope that god listens to everyone's prayers and make sure that Mr. Jackson's children have the strength and courage to handle this tragedy.

Its every well understood that these kids will have to deal a lot with the media talking about Mr. Jackson more about what he was NOT than his good deed and Kindness.May god Bless!

Ella   July 31st, 2009 7:30 am ET

With all the craziness surrounding Michael Jackson, with all the people who try to be a person who "knew" Michael, who "is" his friend, I'm actually happy that this lady comes out as a witness. I think she's one of a few who just honestly says what she knows and tells how Michael is a wonderful person.

Amal   July 31st, 2009 10:02 am ET

Interesting comments indeed. The chef's interview was straight forward, emotional especially when scenes of the ambulance were shown, however the chef managed to answer in a dignified way.

At this time, maybe we should reflect on the beauty of MJ's music and the comfort he gave to reaching out to people all over the world, particularly those in need – a true humanitarium to say the least.. Sadly, only now have we come to appreciate MJ and the three beautiful children thrust out into the limelight on the eve of their father's demise. What a wonderful parent, ensuring the children's lives evolved around constant love and care.

So good to hear a settlement has been reached between the parties and hopefully this will be smooth transition for the children with the help of MJ's siblings and cousins as well.

Maybe until the final toxicology reports are released we should simply reflect on the four decades of MJ's music and the comfort each and every one of us was able to relate to.

sandy   July 31st, 2009 10:42 am ET

As someone who's suffered from horrible insomnia since age 5, I can relate to MJ's desperation. There have been so many times in my life that I'd just rather die than suffer one more night of that hell...the exhaustion, the body pain that comes from not sleeping, the depression that inevitably sets in...if you have it, you know. Ambien doesn't work to keep true insomniacs down. It just makes us walk around in a sleep state, doing dangerous things and not remembering them. If one good thing could come of this tragedy, it should be the realization that we need more effective and less dangerous sleep medications. Having better meds would significantly reduce the number of alcoholics and drug addicts walking around, too, since most people DO turn to something eventually to manage to survive. Sleep is a critical function and it's sad and frustrating to see so many people easily dismissing the subject of chronic insomnia.

MaryLee   July 31st, 2009 10:51 am ET

Lydia...I should have clarified and said out patient procedure. doesn"t matter. Michael should not have been given this at all and the Dr knew it, but for that huge paycheck every month, He went beyond the ethics of his profession, he threw his medical knowledge out the window the 1st time he did this to Michael. I am thinking this Dr. didn't have much of a clientele just by listening to his financial problems. He didn't own the car he was driving, unless that was just registered like that to dodge the people who were placing liens on everything he owned. One day it will be revealed who in fact introduced this Dr. to Michael, bet it traces back to Dr. Klein. I am also beginning to wonder if this is the same Dr. who treated an entertainer in Vegas who had heart problems (Danny Gans)he was given Dilauded and died. I bet this Dr. was nothing more than a high priced Dr. Feelgood for some Entertainers-Vegas is a big town.

JaYme   July 31st, 2009 11:40 am ET

I just read each an every post here on this blog, and one persons post imparticular has made my eyes pop out....and that is of JUNIOR!!!! Wow you seem to know some stuff, like someone else said, " REALLY, WHO ARE YOU???" Well I guess it really doesnt matter because it seems you have all the Michaels nasty ducks in a row...I personally believe that Michael was murdered, and he has been set up for years...and the first set up was of ***JORDIN CHANDLER***, ...all these people have to close their eyes someday, and watch out then!!!

Thank you Kat Larstone for posting those You Tube sites...I just finished listening and more importantly hearing what Michael had to say, WOW is all I can say, that was heart touching, what an honour that would have been to be sitting in on that speech, I'm sure there wasnt a dry eye there!!! Thank you again Kat!! 🙂

And to his family,..... your son, your brother, your cousin, your uncle and most importantly YOUR FATHER ... Michael was a true kind spirit, you all know that and I'm sure you all felt that, please never forget how he loved you all, Bless you all, and may the grace of God be with you all...forever!!!

SAM   July 31st, 2009 11:42 am ET

I don't know why Dr. Murray would call out for Prince than calling for 911. What happened to the other staff and the security for witness. Why they told all the staff to leave the building. This is all Murray's plan that other staff won't tell anything.

chris   July 31st, 2009 12:52 pm ET

It sounds like Michael definitely did have a drug problem. However I wonder if it was at a manageable level – until AEG Live came along. Michael was trusting to a fault. This fact, plus a likely drug problem and Michael's need to raise cash would make Michael an excellent target for an unsavory corporation like AEG Live. Add to that a questionable doctor who needed cash, 10 shows allegedly changing to 50 shows without Michael's consent, suspicious life insurance policies from which AEG Live benefits and the refusal of the executors to show Katherine the AEG Live concert contract and the missing video securtiy surveillance. Perhaps Dr. Murray is the fallguy. What is Sony's part in all of this. It seems like they want Michael's 50% share of the music catalogue. I hope police and prosecutors dig deep!

gloria   July 31st, 2009 1:05 pm ET

I do not trust attorneys. The fact that MJ would put in the will anyone contesting the will, will get nothing. If he only left money to his children, mother, and charity who was he speaking of. The only person that would contest would be his mother, children are too young, would MJ do this to his mother? Strange.....That means they can do what they want. Why did the third attorney decide to back out? Does he know something we do not? Someone not in the will should contest it. If MJ was an addict as it is being reported. Addicts are not fully compable of signing things if they are under the influence. Most attorneys would want another family member or friend to witness the signing. I do not believe for one minute that MJ signed this will knowing everything in it. As we a finding out, it all about the money for almost everyone. Check out the attorneys too, to see if they have motives. After all everyone else is being looked at as having motives and an interest in money from MJ. After all why not have MJ mother involved, it was her child. They want to handle money that is not theirs and do not want family......I think the WILL should be in question as to whether MJ knew what he was signing if he was an addict he could not have made this decision alone. I hope the family lawyers are questing it as well.

Samantha - South Africa   July 31st, 2009 1:16 pm ET

As far as I'm concerned,Dr Arnie Klein is also responsible for Michael getting hooked on to Demerol as a result of the numerous dermatological procedures that he carried out!Like I thought this doctor would've known better,after all it is widely known that physical addiction is highly likely to occur if Demerol is used for more than a couple of weeks in which case withdrawal symptoms will be felt if Demerol is stopped.Furthermore,this physical dependence can often be a precursor to a very serious addiction and thus lead to dependence on other harmful substances as well.Also,a doctor cannot prescribe a patient Demerol if they have a history of drug abuse or addiction i.e Michael went to a rehab facility in England in 1993.

I can't help but wonder if Klein was a 'fake' friend of Michael's!
Its no wonder the Jackson family have not invited him over because they probably know Klein's motives!!!

I hope Dr Murray,Dr Klein and god knows how many others that are responsible for feeding Michael's addiction are brought to justice!

Thanks for posting the Oxford Speech. Eventhough I mentioned it, I didn't think to post it. Thank you.

Art Cappuccio   July 31st, 2009 2:08 pm ET

Big Concerns;
#1 Why would the Doctor leave the side of a patient (who is dying) and go downstairs to see where the kids we're. I can't beleive Michael Jackson was in a house with the ONLY DOCTOR, The kids and a chef.

#2 Why would the drug Diprovan be a concern at 12:00 in the afternoon when the chef said Michael always ate lunch and dinner with the kids. Why would he be asleep. Was he under the medication the hold night and just coming around from it that morning.

#3 Kai Chase said when see saw Michael the day before he looked very tired. Maybe we should be looking for a drug when he woke up to get him going not put him to sleep.

#4 Michael would not let his own family have an intervention with him and I believe he had an altercation with the Doctor with the possiblity of letting him go with no pay. The Doctor was about to loose everything he owned and I believe this was enough of a motive to kill Michael. Please keep in mind that even his friend Tupac offered help and he didn't talk to him for months. He also said to his chef I need you to keep me healthy because they are going to kill me.(meaning the production company).

I think you're right. The issue of insomnia has not been considered properly. It's not as simple as being addicted to prescription medication as many seem to think.
i suspect Michael's biggest problem was his insomnia, that's why the Dr came at 9pm & stayed till the next morning. I think Michael was trying to stay off (?) as much as he could but maybe after staring at the ceiling all night felt he needed something, as he would have a busy day ahead of him.

br   July 31st, 2009 2:44 pm ET

Maybe MJ ment Debbie not to contest his well....Or could it be Joe...MJ had a trust set up so who is in that trust??? will we ever know who is in that?

It has been said that MJ had his bedroom temp set he would have a fire going. When you are a outpation and go under,and then you come back are you not cold?

This is all so sad still....I too miss him..

I hope and pray that Debbie doesn't mess with these kids head. Everyone says she likes the $

Julia   July 31st, 2009 2:49 pm ET

Let Michael have his fair trial and R.I.P. My prayers are with his kids!

Lila   July 31st, 2009 3:25 pm ET

I have read all of your posts and agree with everyone I have another thing to add there is a connection between Dr Klien and Debbie Rowe they conspired together to keep Michael hooked on Drugs which a family friend and his former physican hoffelin who speaks for the family stated that Arnie Klien was giving Michael a high dose of Demerol and this doctor questioned that I feel that this was done to collect money and also they knew how much Michael want children so he talked Michael into having children with Debbie Rowe he claimed or had a friend claim he too was the father of the older children Debbie Rowe was paid 8 Million dollars which she is broke if KLien is the biological father has he claims he split the money with Rowe so far all of the Doctors are connected to Dr Klein even the one who gave the physical that Michael passed, the LAPD and the coroner are doing their jobs that why they will not release the medical examiner findings until they have their murder case built against everyone involved this is a bigger tasks then anyone has realized. everyone is going to pay for what they did to Michael trust me!!

myrna Johnson   July 31st, 2009 3:43 pm ET

My question is you can look at these kids and tell right off that they are not Micheal's biological children. In my opinion the two older children look like Debbie Rowe and the dematolist they are not african american kids no way. Now my true question is does Micheal have true bio children or not?

Maureen (UK)   July 31st, 2009 3:45 pm ET

Kat Larstone
Thanks for the, Michael's Oxford University talk link. Michael was a brilliant philanthropist. Hope more people get to hear about all his charity work.

alicia   July 31st, 2009 4:02 pm ET

from the chef, what i feel is very strange. there are lot of question came up while i was reading this. first is what was happening up stairs that day and what time did MJ really die. i feel so strange that there are so many people in the house but only the doctor is up stairs alone. and only the doctor know what happened? people are saying different things about his death, manslaughter, homoside, accident, i cannot say who did it but i believe this is not as simple as just an accident. 80% it will became a homoside.

Mari   July 31st, 2009 5:04 pm ET

I think there is a typeo in the part Kai wrote Dr. Murry arrived at 9 a.m. and left shortly after lunch.
He would come to the home around 9 PM...stay overnight and leave the next day shortly after lunch. That's what she's said on all her interviews. Her story is touching and I'm glad she has shared it with everyone else. So I thank her for that.

sarah   July 31st, 2009 5:24 pm ET

Michael was very important to his kids, to them Michael was their whole world.I'm still grieving myself! 8/29/58

Lucero Castañeda   July 31st, 2009 5:46 pm ET

First, Sorry for my english. :-). One question. Where was Prince Michael II the day of Jackson's death? Only mentioned Paris& Prince I. I pray for the kids. They need love and compresion. Michael God bless you!! MEXICO TE AMA MJ !!.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I agree with everything you said, about AEG, the missing security video, insured for a drug overdose a known addict, but not natural causes what?????, that leads me to believe the insurance company in London is in on the conspiracy and murder of Michael.

Thanks again for posting MIchaels speech on youtube at Oxford.

Does anyone but us read these blogs??

So many things to investigate.......Junior I was really impressed you sure know the players in Michael's sad life.

The toxocology reports are going to be misleading, inaccurate and not the smoking gun for a conviction of Murray........................ because

propofol/ diprivan.....breaks down in minutes in the body, its half life is 2 to 4 minutes. It will be found in his brain and some tissue, FROM CHRONIC USE but it WON'T BE the TOXIC LEVEL AT THE TIME HE STOPPED BREATHING FROM IT. This is one of the reasons DR. Murray........delayed notifying anyone.......3 hours later it would be-_____virtually non detectable in the bloodstream....__________not to speak of he had to clean up and get rid of incriminating evidence, like the medical records at the storage facility, the security tape that is missing and not mentioned anymore in the news call AEG, get further instructions the "deed is done"

annie   July 31st, 2009 9:49 pm ET

MJ could have even ask dr phil why those type.....i tell u he love goin to the valley of death.....that was the life style he chose...RIP MJ.

P.Rahming   July 31st, 2009 10:18 pm ET

Prince, Paris and Blanket always remeber that your dad may not be there phisically but ther spirtually.Cocovelvet i agree all the staff knows dirt on Michael and yea what really happened to the survaillance tape that disappeared.
And didnt they say that people where moving boxes of papers out of dr.murray's office the day Michael died?
hmmmm keep your eye on him everyone

krazyk   July 31st, 2009 11:25 pm ET

to all of you who gave MJ those medications and knew he was an addict i hope you are all HANG/put in theGAS knew he was addited why not try to help him get over his addition,NO because of money youi all continue to feed him on them like they are food.if it wasn't for that he would be here with his children and starting his his children are going through alot just because of you all.i hope are comfortable with all what's happening .i will continue to write until MJ'S death has come to a proper close and someone is held responsible...............I LOAAAATH YOU ALLLL....................

Des   August 1st, 2009 1:35 am ET

My heart goes out to Michael's children. I feel sad that they do not have their great father with them anymore. And to Michael, God , I missed him so much. I grew up with his music and he was my childhood, until I became a teen and now a mom. I will miss him deeply. R.I.P. Michael.

Nancy Endari   August 1st, 2009 3:30 am ET

Very sad story. I feel really sorry for the children for They had to witness the whole process. This could have haunted them for the rest of their lives. I believe Michael is truly wonderful father and always be there for his children even after death.My pray for them to be strong and able to move forward in their lives.
Rest in peace Michael. Gob bless his soul, children and family

dominikanita   August 1st, 2009 4:46 am ET

I can't believe that Michael Jackson is gone. I knoe wthat Paris katherine Michael Jackson, Prince Michael Jackson l, and Prince Michael ( Blanket) Michael Jacksonll their going to miss their father and they will never forget about him. I will never forget Michael Jackson THE KING OF POP! I love u michael!

Madiha   August 1st, 2009 6:07 am ET

This story really brought tears in my eyes. IT's very depressing and I just can't imagine what the children must be going through at that time. Witnessing that whole scene at such an early age is just so heart-breaking! My prayers will always be with MJ's kids.

Leah   August 1st, 2009 7:51 am ET

I am very sad for what Michael has gone through all his life up to his death. My heart goes out to his beautiful three children and may God bless them and protect them throughout their lives. Michael has been a victim of human nature for being the great person the world has ever had. People always dont appreciate the gift that God has given earth. It seems too good that people have to make excuses or rumors to make it sound not that great, for people always create the worst possibility for the reason why a person can be so "MICHAEL" ( loving, caring, giving, talented, simply HUMANE.. ). Michael was what God meant about being a human being. But I guess people just couldn't believe there would actually be a person so REAL as Michael with all the love of life to exist in this world and at this time. It reminds me of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ after all what Jesus has suffered for us. Michael was simply "LOVE" ...I cannot say anymore than that because I can't even find the proper words to describe Michael, for he was and still is greater than any word..I love you Michael and always will...My prayers to Prince, Paris and Blanket. Michael may you find the peace you never had on earth..Love you so much

Sharon   August 1st, 2009 12:08 pm ET

It is nice to see someone confirm that Micheal and the kids lived a normal life. THe media is so quick to depict him as a freak and weirdo. The reality is genuis breeds madness. He truly was a tortured genuis who wanted nothing more than to be normal. This man had no peace in his life and the press is still hounding him in his death,. Let him rest for the first time in his life. It would have be nice for him to watch his kids grow up, but we took that from him with our obsession with his celebrity.

Susan J   August 1st, 2009 1:21 pm ET

My heart and soul goes out to the entire Jackson Family, there is no deeper pain than the loss of a family member and especially a parent, sibiling, or child. No matter what caused his death , the fact is that we no longer have Michael here in the now with us . Michael was so kind and caring to people he forgot about himself . To me the public crucifide him because he wanted just to simply have a life give love and recieve it in return. I will miss him forever. Not a day goes by that I don't hear his soft words " I LOVE YOU ...MORE" .

Theressa( Tinkerbell)   August 1st, 2009 7:09 pm ET

Well, I can honestly say this! I never went to law school, but I can read between the lines! The people that were around Michael were in a financial downfall. I will not point my finger at anyone here, but When a security tape goes missing, money and jewels vanish. I would look at the Dr., and the others. He, the so called DR. is in financial problems,To much for me to even type.But his hands look dirty to me, GOOD thing I am not the judge for this case... But off the record I miss Michael, he was and will remain in my life and my heart. He had a heart that would not let him harm others. Thats why he never said anything back to those who said bad about him. They will pay when time comes around. They know in whom they are. Last but not least! I don't care what faith you are in or you believe in. There is only one God. If you don't believe in him where did you come from?? Michael was his creation, Now he is gone to be with him...I will Love you for eternity Michael, see you over there.. Rest my love rest xoxoxoxo's

hebah samo   August 2nd, 2009 2:24 am ET

when i saw paris cry on stage that broke my heart all i did was cry/paris i want you to know that you are not alone and your dad is in a better place know.

nita   August 2nd, 2009 8:10 am ET

Kat thanx for the links
junior totally agree with you

I find it strange that the judge would not let KJ be an executor. as for the chef, yes she has mastered her craft, I still think that she is lying about something my spirit tell me so. my connection to michael as a little girl was threw his music, you couldnt tell me i wasnt going to marry michael jackson in fact i was going to tap dance my way in to his heart. As an adult my connection became something else i cant explain. I have an ipod none of his music is on it, but i always seemed to worry about him. when i heard bad news about him i never believd it, but any news was good news it was comforting to no he was ok. when i saw the breaking news of his death i fell ill. Im still not with it. I will find a way to get through this, but for now the sky doesnt look the same. I think michael made a big mistake going on tv saying he was addicted to prescription drugs. this is when the killers started there plans to murder him, this murder has been in the makeing for years. from elizabeth taylor and her speech about coming to rescue her friend. This nurse comes out saying michael begged for propofol. so called friends pleading for michael to stop using these drugs. To me its all setup and planned. From the minute I saw the breaking news i knew it was murder and my spirit tells me his last moments wasnt to peaceful. i am mad as hell! I love you michael i wish i could have been there for you.

JaYme   August 2nd, 2009 12:56 pm ET

Junior, Tinkerbell and all see what I see!!! There is alot more to this than meets the eye...lots of cover ups happening here!!! It will all take time for the truth, the real truth come out, dont worry, Michael will have his say in court, the real court of LAW.Those people know what they did to him...and one day the truth will come out...all of it, slowly but surely, just be patient family, friends and fans and you will see!!!

what every one wants to know is the real mj, not just the star we all knew but the father,man,and friend who every one admired and loved, we all want to know and understand all the misteries around his life ,but we want something that can open every ones eyes and see that michael jackson was a unique man and there will never exist someone with a heart that big ,because he truely loved the world and the world loved him,im sure that in heaven god has a special place for him ,i will allways remember him and he will allways be in my heart ,i will try to be atlist half of the loving person he was,i will allways love you michael...

Carmen   August 3rd, 2009 11:03 am ET

It is clear that at the end of his life, we realize how kind, tender, and great human being MJ was. It's a shame that media focused negative aspects of his life in the past. Now, and according to the people who knew him, we come up with a different portrait of Michael as son, brother, friend and father. As manner of fact,every person who has been interviewed only can say remarkable and positive things of him. It's very sad that he has gone to soon. I MISS YOU MICHAEL!!!Thanks for all the great moments you gave to my generation. RIP.GOD BLESS YOU!!! I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!!!

Patty Anderson   August 3rd, 2009 1:34 pm ET

It's a glorious day today. One of Our dearest Micheals requests have been fulfilled. His mother is now the permanent guardian for Micheals children. Thank-You LORD. At least we now know the children will not end up with Debbie Rowe

Michael was the HEART of entertainment. He is the ultimate GOD of music and nothing else really matters. We, his fans are always beside him to worhsip our GOD. We believed him. we believed in his talent and SUPREMACY. all my love to his children. RIP, Michael.

Melissa mogor   August 4th, 2009 5:15 am ET

Thank god catherine got custody it's what right and what michael and his kids would want. Justice is server in the legal department with this case.

Jaelle said:
I still believe this is not our business. The only thing about Michael Jackson that the public has a right to is the personal copies of his music that they own, and the memories they have of good times or good concerts when they listen to his music. We do not own our celebrities. They offer us a gift they have, and we appreciate what they give us. That is where it should end. This man’s life was a lesson to us all, about how we treat others and the consequences.

Gossiping about celebrities is cruel. They are people. When we engage in this gossip we teach our children that some people don’t matter as much as others, or that some people deserve or even ask to be mocked. Well as one wise man said, take the log out of your own eye before you cast judgment about the speck in your neighbor’s eye. And more powerfully “you who is without sin, cast the first stone…..” Basically, what makes us think we’re so much better that we have the right to judge. It’s not our place.
This the best post of all. Well said and worth repeating.
My heart aches for this family, and MJ's children. If there is one thing about MJ that I carry around with me is his capacity to love others. We could learn alot from him. God Bless.

One day your hear, One day your gone.
At times its hard, At times I'm numb.

To think that i would never'ev guessed.
That you'll be gone and put to rest.

I dedicate this song to you,
Because i know your pure and true
Don't have to prove yourself to me
Because i always did believe.

To think of how life turns around
It puts you right into the ground
You made a difference in this world

yolande mengue   August 12th, 2009 5:25 am ET

Dr Murray must go to prison because he knows very well what he did to MJ. Moreover, his behaviour was too strange.

Veronica Evans   August 12th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

Its being said that Michael Jackson was on pain medication from the Pepsi commercial scalp burn, but what the media fails to mention a lot of the times is that he also had lupus and lupus is a disease that also causes a lot of pain and discomfort. He was not just taking pain meds for his scalp burn. Michael Jackson was suffering a lot physically and emotionally. Emotionally, ever since that 2005 molestation trial it broke him down in ways we would never know about.

Always a big Michael Jackson fan he was truly the greatest entertainer of all time. RIP

Barbara From Uruguay   August 15th, 2009 3:48 pm ET

Dear CNN and Larry King.
I write this letter to give my opinion and share the pain, the sadness and the biggest suffering and lament that i feel for the death of Michael Jackson.
He was unique in everything, in his way to sing, in his way to dance, in his way to compose, in his way to make videos and to make concerts.
Michael was a extraordinary person and wonderful he has an angelical laugh and pure was adorable and elegant.
Nobodys compare with Michael.
Always dream that some day i could meet him, but in one second everything to vanish.
Now the oly dream is that some day i could meet his family or his sons or his sisters.
From 7 years old always want to be a singer or actress, the most that give me happiness and satisfaction is be a singer.
At 10 years old Michael influence on my life pretty much.
I remember when i have 10 and listen the cassettes Dangerous and Bad on my walkman, always i singing and dancing, i watch on concert on tv, and i try to dance like him.
I could feel sad and awful and i listen his music and give me a huge satisfaction and a biggest happiness, and i could imagine on a stage and that some day i will to get make it.
Still i hope to get make it.
Passing 11 years since thatand still i to stay on the same place.
Everything is for the shortage of money, if i to have got the money i could start on my career.
My dream about is to live on EE.UU and be one of the best singers of the world, to sing on English, to meet the biggest of the music, between them was Michael.
Now not any more cant be.
No pass one day in that cant stop of think on him and to cry by hours.
Always i think and say, how they to take off Michael.
Michael not to deserve to end like this.
He has a childhood and a adolescence hard and finish to suffer from the same way that start his career.
And is sad because he was alone without his sons.
And i wonder if ever was in fact real happy?
I would like that he was be a good friend my, i would like make a good song with him, that to help me to compose and maybe make a video, all that the june 25 to go out all illusion.
Now my only illusion is to get my objective to save the money and start my career like singer to can to live on EE.UU to learn to the maximum and sooner or later to can to make a concert tribute, to sing all his songs always with the Jacksons family permission.
I should to start now, i have 21 years old and if i continue waiting i never can to realize my dream and i be a girl that only dream with that.
For me he was a inspiration, a example to follow that nothing is impossible, thanks to him exist MTV, thank to him we to know a new dance step The Moonwalk, we have songs extraordinarys.
Now everytime to listen his songs we cry because remember to Michael.
Michael was a inspiration for all us.
Life to take off too much soon.
He not to deserve.
He was a young man and not to deserve not enjoy a last concert.
I believe that Latoya say is true and i to hope that to find the guiltis and to pay for they do, because is not fair to take off such diamond here in earth, a god, the king of pop and music he is the only.
For that and much more Michael make a lot of absence to all us.
The world to spill his tears, can stop to think about what he to think what to happens in that last moments.
Michael make a lot of absence to all and more to those who to know and much more to his sons.
That are three childs that to be left without his father.
I go to sleep to listen his music and to awake from the same way so at the time i imagine that if i to suffer and cant stop to cry i imagine as could to be his sons and his family.
I want be a singer because i love to sing and make me feel alive.
Now i to wish more i to want that all us to have Michael with us always.
His body not any more to be between us but his soul still is between us and whereas listen his music and to remind of when he was alive his soul always to be with us.
We not must to let to die his legacy his music.
What i feel by Michael the must feel so many people around the world.
Some day i will go to Forest Lawn to say thank you Michael for be such huge inspiration and a example to follow.
My objective is be a singer to complete my dream and always to remind to the fans and new generations that was a man who change the history of the music, of the dance and of the videos, THE KING OF POP, THE KING OF MUSIC AND OF DANCE, THE KING FOR ALL TIMES AND THAT ALWAYS WILL BE!!!!!!!
Always you are in my heart and in my mind Michael.
I to wish to be dead, i not you Michael.
And if is the gods will and i to begin my career always i to make that you to have got present and like this you music, you glorious career and you soul not stay in vain.
And remember as long as living his music never we to let that the king be to forget.
Thank you Michael.
My name is Barbara im from Uruguay.

Lilianna number 1 MJ fan!!!   August 15th, 2009 7:22 pm ET

How heart breaking to know that the children had to go through that watch their father die right before their eyes. It went from a typical family day to a wrongful heart breaking day. Paris, I feel sorry for her screaming "Daddy,Daddy!" and her father not responding is hurtful! Prince, watching his father get CPR! Blanket, not understanding that his Daddy is not coming back1 My heart and support goes to the children! I would be devistated if that was my mother im an only child at the age of 12 same age as Prince so I know what they are going through I lost my God-Father 2 years ago and I"m still heart broken! Michael was the only true parent they had it's heart breaking to see him go! I same age as Prince and only 1 year older than Paris and young Blanket i feel for you! It may be hard to believe that I'm only 12 but it's the truth, I am really 12. So Prince, Paris, and Blanket you have my support and my Heart!

lashika   August 17th, 2009 12:45 am ET

'My heart is heavy when l read this page and l cried. Am still nursing the pain, then l ask myself, this is a guy that l have not met before just watch his music and heard many things about him, and l felt these way, what if l met him before he died and for me to feel these way, feel so touched everyday to the extend of getting all details about his death, then how will the children feel, they that always be with him almost everyday, laugh, eat, play and many more, how will they feel?

I think have write enough, because it's makes me cried more.

Paula M - Phoenix   August 21st, 2009 2:25 am ET

Gloria – (7/29/09) Well said......there are no truth sayers. It's all lies and if these damn docs get off – the justice system will be finished in this country – the enablers, just because the stars demand service – why did they take the oath to be a physician? To be able to kill people with a license, and prove otherwise because he used RX drugs? This was a star of all time – we will NEVER see another even come close to this man's talent and he's gone because of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!
AEG paid for everything – I'm wondering if they didn't keep him down (sedated) and brought him up (awake x3) to perform and that was it, complete control. The chef says he was healthy and of good weight – she should know, that is her business, so what is the issue? If he was heavy into drugs it is AEG and Murry, they saw money to be made and wanted to make sure their pockets were lined. And this was MJ – they could have knocked off 10 other hollywoods and we wouldn't have paid attention to it on the 6:00 news, but Michael Jackson..........people are up in arms and heartbroken. I hope the A..hole, murry goes for the rest of his life and the rest of them too. Michael did not intend to die, he loved his children, he loved performing, he was in the throughs of making a movie and directing it...........this will go on for way too long and it won't bring him back. My final word: (in Michael's words) 'They don't really care about us".............he tried to fix things, he got taken out of the box. Such a crime, a pity. My prayers are with Paris, Prince Michael I & Blanket......those poor children to go through life without the only parent they know. RIP Michael. I'm disscusted with this system and heartbroken for you at the same time.

Yes, I got goosebumps too.

Here are quotes from the Holy Bible (New International Version) –

Ecclesiastes 12 : Verses 13-14..............

"Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. "

Quote from New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures –

Matthew 10 : Verses 28 to 31.............

"And do not become fearful of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be in fear of him that can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

Do not two sparrows sell for a coin of small value? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's knowledge.

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Therefore have no fear: YOU are worth more than many sparrows. "

Soooo sad. I can't read this witout becoming emotional, even now. I will always love MIchael, as does the world. Having lost a parent at a young age myself, I know how it feels. The loss is imeasurable and, when your father is Michael Jackson????? Being the creative and sensetive man he was, he will always be missed. My heart goes out to Prince, Paris and Blanket as well as Michael's entire family. Michael's generosity and love has touched thousands and far exceeded anyone I know of. I hope in time people will come to know the wonderful man he really was. In my eyes, he is a prince.
