I'll tell you what's holding up the autopsy report; LAPD is trying to find every reason in the book to blame Michael Jackson for his own death and claim it was an accidental overdose.

Carol   August 4th, 2009 8:49 pm ET


Please ask Mr Dileo the following:
Eventhough he was fired by MJ in 1989 what made him come to his defense at the 2005 trial?Did Michael ask him to be there?
I have to say that by Mr Dileo supporting Michael during this horrible time he truly showed how much he cared for MJ. Also ask him if he will be involved in some way with Katherine and the kids now that Michael has gone.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 8:50 pm ET

Hi LInda. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Mari   August 4th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

I still can't believe MJ is gone.

lex   August 4th, 2009 8:53 pm ET

like linda said thr holdin the report so dat mj can be made into this huge druy addict so thy can say it was a o.d which means AEG gets 17.5 million bucks. wat a damn shame

Lilly   August 4th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Ask him what is the hidden agenda of that creep, Dr. Klein. He seems like the most unethical of all the snakes to crawl out from under rocks to exploit MJ's death.

MaryRM   August 4th, 2009 8:59 pm ET

Perhaps they don't want another botched "OJ" style investigation. Although everyone has known since the mid 90's that Michael was an addict (you never stop being one), there are some very strange circumstances around his death, like a break from routine, fireplaces turned on, etc. that any police force would view as suspicious. The world is watching and the LAPD knows the importance of not 'screwing this one up'.

Christina   August 4th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

I think once everyone knows about what really happened to him, then the case can finally rest in peace.

Cassandra   August 4th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

Hi Larry, While I love Bill Clinton, let's refer to him as "former" president. Obama is our president now. I'm really happy for those journalists.

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

I am glad the journalists are coming home!

Saul Gitlin   August 4th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

Regarding the North Korea story, do your guests think that President Clinton may have discussed offering medical assistance or expertise to Kim Jong Il regarding his illness?

Kimin NC   August 4th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

MJ was like so many others he was an addict and it got the best of him noone held a gun to his head and made him a drug addict he had an addiction and thats that why cant the media just leave it alone OD happens everyday in so many families across the country Im sick and tired of hearing about Mj I bet if it wasnt Dr Murray then it would of just been someone eles please can we just move on and at least let MJ the dead RIP for crying out loud

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

I think this may be a sign of respect by the North Koreans.
Bill Clinton, the former President and the husband of the current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - on the birthday of our current President, Barack Obama - helped achieve such a wonderful outcome!
I think the Clintons are wonderful!
Maybe the North Koreans will be willing to talk if we dont act like bigshots. I think Asians like to be treated with respect and like to save face, etc!
Maybe a door is opening. who knows!

Aixa from Argentina   August 4th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

I agree with you Linda...

And I just wanna konw ... why no one has taken care of MJ's health? He had A LOT of friends around him, always in his house... so I still can't understand why this had to happen... Do they were afraid of him?, I can't belive it!

Mr. king, I really appreciate all the information you share with all of us... and I admit that I have the interest about what happens with MJ's childs, because I admire him with my heart as the most greatest artist that I've ever known, but I think that is time to leave this kids alone, to heal their pain the best they can...

Best wishes, and God's blessings for all Jackson's family

Judy   August 4th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

I am so proud of President Clinton. He is a master negotiator.

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

I am glad the leader of North Korea is not ill.
Who knows what would happen then.
MAybe he wants to put his affairs in order.

sonja moore   August 4th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

RE: the North Korea release...I have a question – So, we negotiate with terrorists in certain situations? I'm glad they're not dead but I hope them and other gung-ho Americans learn to respect the boundaries of other sovereign nations.

Our arrogance gets us into trouble abroad.

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

Since you see m to be so positive that Michael Jackson died from an accidental overdose, you must have some inside information that no one esle has, huh?

David Noel   August 4th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

What happened to the Korean people who were helping the journalists?

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

My goodness, you dont send one of the most popular Presidents to North Korea without knowing the outcome!

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I am very glad that the journalist were released. Thank God.

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Iran and North Korea are different.
I think it is comparing apple to Orange.
Secretary Clinton seems to have such a wonderful group of people helping her.

I knew the journalists in North Korea would be coming home. It was just a matter of time.
I am glad it is on Obamas Bday and before Christmas!
The N Korea leader is not a fool. Maybe he wants to talk and join the family of nations. Its kind of like the black sheep in a family. Maybe this is a start. How do you deal with a black sheep?

ari garcia   August 4th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

God bless B
ill Clinton! Give him the noble peace prize. He was able to save
those two journalists and bring them back to our country and damilies. If only he was in charge of of saving our economy and returning back to the time of prosperity when he was president.

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

The N Korea leader likes movies.
I hope he likes movies with happy endings.

Jerry   August 4th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

I am hungry.
they make good cabbage in Korea.
good show Larry.

Lisa   August 4th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Larry, please ask frank dileo this for me:

Are the jackson children aware the enormity of their dad's success; and with the jackson brothers as well?

Thank You.

Wendy, Ontario, Canada   August 4th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Well done Presidents Obama & Clinton. So many great things can happen with diplomacy & respect for others. What an awsome change from the Bush Presidency. The world views the U.S differently with this new President, I think many great things will happen with President Obama's way of governing.

Chris   August 4th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

What is it going to take to get you to stop wasting our time with Michael Jackson?

Eva Flores   August 4th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Enough about Michael Jackson's details Larry! The constant, endless, and meaningless reports from Jackson's "friends" are disturbing, but more disturbing that the "reputable" media keep reporting on this. Enough, he passed away and the vultures will continue to swoop around as long as you give them the platform from which to fly. Why not report on actual news like the tension between Colombia and Venezuela or the situation in Honduras?

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Ok, I'm confused.

Dr. Conrad Murray is reported as saying "he" took a psychologist in with the children to tell them Michael had died.

LaToya has said in an interview that "she" took a psychologist in with her to tell the children their father had died.

Now Frank Dileo is saying he did.

WHO REALLY told the children????????

Mara   August 4th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Oh you meant this blog. =)

erika   August 4th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

talk about the premonitions he had!!!

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

why is Larry hvn Dileo the gangster on LKL? wat is Larry upto?

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

those in America please update us, wat is the criminal Dileo saying? God... these pple shld jus leave Michael & his family alone!

Alice   August 4th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Well done Mr. former President. I thank God for that..good job

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Larry...ohhh...yeah, DiLeo's clearing up some stuff all right. That's what "clean-up" men do. He's doing damage control for AEG LIve. What do you expect? They're all dirty.

Mara   August 4th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I wish I could re-wind the tape I swear he said something odd in regards to when he reached the hospital as if he were surprised MJ was still alive since they were still working on him when in fact he was already dead.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Frank Dileo, you are LYING!! You are an enabler just like all the others. You should have been ashamed of yourself telling the family MJ died. That was NOT your place!! I hope you have a good lawyer, too. Your day will come.

lex   August 4th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

where is evrybody 2nite

c. Valentine   August 4th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Please rename The Larry King Show to The Michael Jackson and Larry King Hour. It seems to be the only subject that interests him.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Jim Moret is NOT reporter, he writes in a TABLOID..

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Nicole S. update please, curiosity killed a cat 🙂

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Adrienne... you are here hun, sum1 update me please b4 i lose my mind 🙂

Commanche   August 4th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

God Bless Bill Clinton.

lex   August 4th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

of course jim is gonna say good thngs bout DiLeo he doesnt wanna die frm his mob connections

Wendy, Ontario, Canada   August 4th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Interesting info. tonite that blows away the big conspiracy theories.
AEG had insurance BUT it will go to the estate, no profit for AEG there
The Doctor that did MJ's physical for the tour, NOT Murray but an outsider picked by the Insurance company, looks like Murray's not to blame there
100 hours of rehearsal footage that will be sold by AEG, 90% goes to the estate, no big profits there for AEG either.
I don't understand how anyone could believe AEG wanted MJ dead?
They would have made a ton of money from the tour, now very little.
Of course few people here will believe anything anyone says. MJ WAS in control of his own life, he surrounded himself with the people He wanted. Time to stop blaming everyone that was part of his life. I have no doubt the coroner will say it was an overdose, MJ chose to take the drugs, end of story

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Oh my goodness, now Jim Moret. What a bunch of bull tonight. Jim Moret can't objectively analyze anything about Michael. He works for a *tabloid," for goodness sake!! And he's calling Michael ODD? Whatever!!!! Get these bozos off the screen!

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

whats delaying the arest of Murray & crew?

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Wow y'all are really negative tonight!

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Larry, how DARE you bring up the allegations?? You should be ASHAMED!! Also, Jim Moret, stop saying that MJ was STRANGE or ODD, there was nothing strange about him, what you and the rest of the media did to him was STRANGE!! GO SCREW YOURSELF!!

lex   August 4th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

haha i noe u cnt wait til friday nicole

Wondering   August 4th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

My question is why on earth would Michael Jackson's manager be the one to tell the children that he had died?? The family should have done that and it seems very odd that he felt that he needed to do it. Yes, he was his manager but this is something that should have been left up to the family. He seems bizarre to me.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Wendy - I respectfully disagree. It's NOT the end of the story. Michael's family WILL get to the bottom of what really happened. Just because you don't believe there was a conspiracy to murder him doesn't negate the possibility that there was one. Don't patronize us by acting like we're stupid. I'm highly educated - and I also have common sense to see that this whole situation stinks.

Janet   August 4th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

What does Mr. DiLeo think of the allegations in Ian Halperin's book Also Please thank Mr. Dileo for giving us insight to Michael Jackson. I have read numerous articles on his relationship with Michael Jackson and it seems he loved him a great deal.

mixon   August 4th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

I am so tired of every news person saying that we are now hearing things that humanize MJ. When black people were telling you that MJ did nothing to those children, you did not believe them. When black people were telling you that MJ is a kind soul, you did not believe them. The white news media is always bringing up names of white people that say nice things about MJ and they are starting to believe them about MJ. If Al S. say he is a kind soul, oh No! they don't believe them. It is so crazy to listen to these people.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Jim Moret has been extremely objective thoughout all of this. As a matter of fact, he's one of the *few* who has been!

MJ did a good job of his own publicity– which created a lot of gossip talk.

MJ created the 'oddity' in the press– he made the point, people believe what they read.... and many have!

Mara   August 4th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

OMG wow mind blower this guy

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Who is paying Frank DiLeo to say all of this? He's been very well prepped. Ohhhhh...he has an answer for everything. Jerk.

Pask   August 4th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

I was always puzzled as to why Frank DiLeo was primarily dismissed as Michael's manager. I am glad Frank stuck by him. This tour would have been wonderful with them working together again.

colleen kelly mellor   August 4th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

I am appalled–I used to watch Larry King every night, as Larry interviewed internationally-reknownedindividuals, people who made a significant difference to the well-being of the rest of us in this human family, bul lately there has been a continual obsession with the Michael Jackson fiasco. Every night–the same guests–the same probing questions regarding the minutiae of that late star's too-early demise. What is going on, Larry? Why can't CNN and your show get beyond this? Is there nothing even of equal importance happening out there?

I am tuning out tonight. This was the first time I tried to revisit my old friend, the man who gamely interviewed so many, one who has sadly slipped into the same business as others who dredge up every particle of supposed "news", dissecting, analyzing, playing into the whole MJ machine. And for what? I am disgusted, and I most assuredly cannot be alone in this.

kh   August 4th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

What's holding up the report. I personally think
they are crossing all their dots and T's before
reporting. As well, became aware of a possible
manslaughter case on Dr. Murray. Too much suspician
with this Dr.

I have been following this story very closely,
and no one has said or thought there is a possibility
of foul play as Joe Jackson states.


Well my personal opinion there could have
been a case where Dr. Conrad Murray
was going to get fired, (Right before the Tour),
after AIG told MJ
it was too much to pay his Doctor 150k month, plus
per diem etc etc..
And Dr. Murray probably sense this,and let
the medicine drip more before he left michael that
nite , Michael stop breathing before the doctor arrived the following Am, and MJ Died.
So, no other Doctor cannot get the job.
And no one will make any money, especially if Murray felt he
was going to lose his position.

I also, personally believe MJ died way before
9:30am That thursday morning.

When Dr. Murray arrived at the home to do his usual with
MJ , and then suppose to come downstairs at 9:30am
to get Breakfast, and didn't come down.

Dr. Murray was too busy trying to revive MJ, unannounced,
between 9:00am and Noon when the 911 call was made.

When Dr. Murray realized MJ wasn't breathing and he couldn't be
revived.. I believe he was the one who probed 4 needle marks in his
neck as well to revive MJ.

Well by this time,. Dr. Murray had a chance to pull the survillence tape, grab MJ money in the house, and other stuff, and escape before 911 arrives or shortly there after..
as well, Dr. had time to figure out what to do for 3-4 hours before that 911 call was made. MJ was already dead.

So the time line i feel was not correct.

Also, where is the person who called 911.
They were there in the room, How come this
person hasn't came forth?
It will help with the timeline..
And Thank God for MJ's Cook for coming forth.
This adds more pieces to the broken puzzle..

Hope we get more news on the Tox Report..
And hopes this helps anyone.

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I agree with you San Diego. Who really told the kids and family/ Why do these people keep lying? Everyone is trying to cover the other one's tracks and no ones getting caught.. AEG is just as guilty as that disgusting Dr.Murray. How could the insurance company even come close to saying Micheal was completely healthy when police and everyone else is saying he was such a horrible addict? So which is it? Was Micheal healthy or was he full of drugs? You should stay retired Frank. You were suppose to look out for Micheal.... Everyone of you had your hands in his death... You are all guilty in my eyes.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Lex - know I can't wait!! 🙂

Carol   August 4th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Ok can someone please post what has been said tonite. Thanks

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Maybe I'm the only one who caught this at the Memorial.... but who were the only two media personalities invited to sit near the Family?

Barbara Walters (whose producer snuck in a cam corder)

and... wait for it....


Ya think he might get some of the scoops no one else will get–especially those close to MJ's family and camp?


Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

I am so curious! How is it that a fan would be able to get Mr. Dileo cell phone number? Is it the same fan that also had Joe Jackson's number?

Maybe the fan is actually another name for "unamed source"?

Betty   August 4th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

I don't understand why Larry didn't ask about why the Dr. wanted to be in the children's lives. I wonder if he is the true father of the two oldest children.

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:04 pm ET


EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

I think it's possible that his body was in good shape– he was a dancer. If he ate healthy, as is reported, for the most part and it doesn't appear he was 100% of the time on drugs, then you can see things both ways...

Remember, he was a dancer since he was at least 6 years old. Anesthesia isn't going to do things like street drugs do to your system. Since he was above top shape, even with medium drug use, his physical shape would be closer to most of us–normal folk.

But that is just me using common sense.

lex   August 4th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

who really told the children that thyre father shouldve been family not mobster DiLeo or anybody jus the family

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Frank Dileo stated that MJ did sign on for 50 concerts, he refuted what Joe Jackson and Leonard Rowe said on LKL. He more or sounds like AEG.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Colleen - Larry knew Michael personally. I, for one, I'm glad that he wants to get to the bottom of what and/or who killed him.

Larry, I appreciate your continued coverage of the Michael Jackson murder investigation. Thank you - it means so much to those who really loved him.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

I agree Lex. It has NEVER rested well with me that Dileo told the kids and family. That should have been Mrs. Jackson or one of the brothers. Give me a break. Frank Dileo, you are an enabler. Let's face it.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:08 pm ET


DiLeo said that MJ did sign the agreement with Leonard Rowe/Joe Jackson and then remembered after a meeting with them in Beverly Hills, that he needed to rescind it.

DiLeo said that he and a pyschologist told the children that their father had passed.

DiLeo said Michael was in good shape, and that he was fully aware of the number of concerts he was giving–50– and that his manager at the time and 3 attorneys read the contract to him. Tickets sales actually could have sold 85 concerts, not just 50.

...more in a second...have to take my pup

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

I do beleive that I read in Michael's autobiography, that he fired Mr. DiLeo in part because DiLeo was responsible for placing so much of the bizarre stuff in the abloid press!

LArry can you have Mr. D back for another go around – we have more questions!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Adrienne - of course DiLeo sounds like AEG. That mobster is doing damage control.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

Yeah wasn't he responsible for the oxygen chamber.

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

thank you Adrienne.... if thats wat Dileo said... he is definitely with AEG.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:11 pm ET


Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

I don't care what anybody says, thee is no way Mr. DiLeo had ANY business telling the children that their father had passed. That is the job of a family member, not the hired help.

lex   August 4th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

wen r the damn autopsy and tox reports comin out i cnt take this degrading of mj anymore callin him an addict we all noe murray gav him prpofol 24 hrs.b4 mj died now jus tell us the rest stupid coroners office

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Do you think we could locate a phone number for Mr. DeLeo, I would like to call him!

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

if Michael fired Delio who hired him back & why???

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

I have always thought that dileo was wrapped up in this. Why in the heck would someone's manager be telling the family that their son, father, brother died. He's just CYA... Wonder who he's lawyering up with.

I REALLY want to know who had the nerve to call Mark Geragos to represent them. He said someone called him to represent them. NOT A SMART MOVE!!

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Maybe AEG???

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

Nicole! On ,y local news they did a story about this giant aligator on a freeway in S. Carolina and the closed the highway for an hour. Freaky!

lex   August 4th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

malaika AEG brought bac evry single person Michael fired

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

whr dd Delio tel the kids abt their father's death? @ the hospital, @ home b4 Michael was rushed to hospital or wat? those wth info please explain, this is strange, he had no right watsoever

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:15 pm ET


Michael hired DiLeo, Branca and others back himself.

Cathy   August 4th, 2009 10:16 pm ET


Great show tonight! Thanks for having Mr. Dileo on. It's so nice to hear some positive thoughts about Michael, instead of ugly lies, especially in regards to the child molestation falsities.


Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Has anyone EVER explained how the children gor to the hospital?

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

I wondered that myself, Lori.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

I do NOT believe that Dileo said that MJ was in control. I believe he was CONTROLLED.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

Hey Lori! That's the problem - there were too many people thinking their place in Michael's life superceded anything having to do with his family. Blood is thicker than water. At this point, anyone who isn't Michael's REAL family needs to butt out.

And I'm sorry to say this, but I have to echo what "mixon" said above. Each time someone of a 'darker hue' comes on LKL to tell the real story, CNN brings someone of a 'lighter' hue to essentially refute everything that has been said. WHY is that?

Just watch - tomorrow DiLeo's psuedo-version of what transpired will be plastered on all of tomorrow's news programs - and will be viewed as a 'legitimate' account of what supposedly happened.

Wow. AEG, you're good - but your days are numbered too.The real truth is emerging, and even your money and influence won't stop it.

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

EO, San Diego... thank you.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Lori, we need to ask that of FRank Dileo, how did the childern get to the hospital.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Maybe the walked, took a cab? I guess we know DiLeo or Phillips didn't take them, and they did not ride in the ambulance

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

EO, San Diego. Thanks for the input. I just got home from work so I missed most of the show except the last 10 minutes. I think DiLeo is simply trying to cover the dirty peoples tracks. I pray to God the police don't drag thier feet and dig until the truth comes out. I believe all of us fans know in,our hearts that Micheal was not ready to leave his children or his fans. Like many have stated, Micheal was worth more dead than he was alive and it is proving to be true. AEG is about to make millions off the sale of his rehearsal tapes from Sony. They have the insurance they took out on Micheal. These people are all crooks and Micheal payed the ultimate price for all the greed going on. Karma people Your day is coming.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

we also can assume that Kai Chase did not take them either. SHe was too much in awe.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:20 pm ET


First, 3 people have claimed to have told the children that MJ died. LaToya, DiLeo and Dr. Murray. I'm curious who *really* did.

Frank was called immediately when the paramedics were at MJ's home. He called MJ's assistant to confirm. Di Leo called Randy Phillips and told him because Phillips was closer to UCLA– and DiLeo raced to UCLA. He walked in while they were still working on MJ.

As for who told the children, or whose right it was to tell them... NONE of us know the relationships these people had with the children or MJ.

The judgment passed here, as many of us are MJ's fans, are truly disgraceful. He would be disgusted at how so many negative things are being said of people he did care about.

Take it up a few notches people.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Lori - that alligator story isn't surprising. We've had a bear running around our county for weeks....LOL!

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

I have HEARD it from several sources that Dileo did. I have not heard anyone else did.

lex   August 4th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

yea lori good question who brought the kids 2 the hospital

Mr DiLeo seems honest and upfront...a good friend to the family ..

Carol   August 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

I think Mark Geragos was refering to one of the Doctors that is under investigation but he declined due to the fact that he represented MJ...conflict of interest.

Question why is there so much anger against Dileo....yes Michael fired and blamed him for a lot of bad press back in 1989 but in 2005 Frank was there with him everyday at the court whenNOBODY else would go near Michael.....all I know is that Frank was hired back in 2009...I somehow dont think he was involved in MJ's death I think he truly cared for him just MO

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Ya know if I were Frank DiLeo and I got a call from a "fan" why would I pick up the phone? Did he recognize the number? I don't get it. I would not think he would be taking calls from just any old fan. Do you think he'd take a call from me?

I want to know who is this particular fan and how the fan got the Godfather's, I mean DiLeo's number?

Was it the same fan that called Joe Jackson. I just find it so very, very odd about these "fans" having these cell phone numbers.

Who is the FAN?

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Andrew, what's just a front.

Rosalie   August 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Thank u for having Frank DiLeo on the show to set the record straight. I believe he is honest and had Michael's best interest at heart. As parents, we all see our children as our babies ( no matter their age). I can see how Michael loved his large family very much, but he also liked to make his own business decisions. I do not appreciate some of the loud mouth guests on HLN who never met Michael Jackson refer to him as a child molester.

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

who is AEG? who is behind AEG? is AEG being investigated? is AEG a suspect? who are the suspects if thr are any? i hv a feeling LAPD wl screw this up, wats delaying the arests wen thr is overwhelming evidence against these smooth criminals?

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Supposedly Chief Bratton (LAPD) has been on vacation. It might be that he wanted nothing done until his return, which I believe is tormorrow. It is speculated that possibly *shortly* actions will start.... possibly the autopsy to be released as well as maybe arrests.

Patty Anderson, you're very welcome :o) Welcome home.. giggles.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

Malaika– Personally, I think that LAPD is doingthe same thing they did to Rodney King, OJ Simpson and now Michael Jackson. I also think that Tom Sneddon has friends in LA and he has hands in this. IT is once again a vendetta against Michael Joseph Jackson.

Adrienne   August 4th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

EO- I read somewhere that they do not even need to release the autopsy, they could choose to keep it private.

lex   August 4th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

Malaika   August 4th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

KEEP DEFENDING THE KING & KEEP THE FAITH! i gotta go to bed now.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

Malaika.. where are you?

AEG is the company that contracted MJ to perform concerts in London.

I'm sure that everyone who ever knew MJ is being investigated in one fashion or another– from the aspect of what they might know. I think only the conspiracy therorists believe that AEG wanted MJ dead.

The medical records and numerous doctors that MJ saw are delaying some of the investigation. It is reported there are a minimum of abnout 24 doctors they have obtained records from, with more around the country still to talk to.

The delay is due to an investigation that crosses state lines and working hand in hand with the DEA, LAPD, CA Attorney General's office, and I'm sure medical and pharmaceutical boards within the state of California. Also the drug manufactors of Diprovan.

The evidence has to stick– it has to be document beyond a doubt. That takes time!

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

Malaiaka-Frank Dileo also confirmed that Michael never touched any of those kids; He said they were a bunch moochers.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

Oh well, on Friday we will probably get another point of view from Jermaine!

mixon   August 4th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

I thought that medical staff only talked to the next of kin, if they were giving him any kind of medical information to him instead of family, that is wrong. HIPPA does not mean a thing when it comes to MJ. There is no hope for any of our private medical business. This man has No! medical privacy and this is a shame. But the media and the doctors they have on do not wish to discuss this injustice any time.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:34 pm ET


Of course they could keep it private. Although it would only continue to lead people to try and get the information since this is likely the biggest case they will ever deal with - from a press standpoint.

It would also come out at trial. So eventually it will come out. I think they'll want to have their ducks in a row before making the announcement, because at the moment, no one knows what's in it... especially Dr. Murray. *hint hint*

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

So, now we're conspiracy theorists? Alrighty then. Funny how certain people come on the blog and act like they have all the answers and the rest of us are just spinning our wheels.

At least I know how to voice my opinion without calling my fellow bloggers names. How quaint.

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

What I don't understand is why is every single person saying that they learned about Michael either from CNN or a fan–What is going on? Jermaine said it he learned about Michael from CNN, Mr. Jackson said he learned about it from a fan, and Now Frank Dileo.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

mixon - that is correct - which is why DiLeo is probably lying.

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

Were these people hired back of Micheals choice or by AEG telling Micheal too? DId Micheal truley trust these people? So many were out to hurt Micheal. So if Frank can truley say the accustations of child molestation were false, why are those people not being brought up on extortion? Is there anyone out there that will come forward and really tell the truth for Micheal. That last court episode on Micheal truley crushed that beatiful spirit of his. There's got to be just 1 person to come forward and blow all these people out of the water. The people that were true to Micheal, bless ur hearts the rest of you....... I won't say that on here

Anna   August 4th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Larry King, thank you for all the shows you do on Michael Jackson, we truly loved him and would like to know exactly why he died.

Also, why do some people insist on clicking on MJ related threads, read them through and then complain that the coverage is too much?

EO, San Diego... i am in England. thank you for explaining.

lindafromnewyork.... by kids u mean that Arvizo thing & Chandler? ofcoz Michael never touched those kids!!! i honestly dnt knw wat to make of this Dileo thoe, i think he is in AEG camp.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:39 pm ET


I don't know what your problem is .. but I did not specify that comment to ANYONE here! I was referring to all the people who still think that MJ is alive and this is all a hoax... and that AEG is in on it.

This is not the first time you have attacked me. While I don't agree with 99.9% of what you say, or the accusations you sling.. I have tried to remain civil.

Please, as I have asked you before, refrain from talking to me. You are rude and I really don't appreciate your attacks.

Wendy, Ontario, Canada   August 4th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

It's amazing that so many of you call yourself fans but think MJ was naive enough to be controlled. Most have said he was a good business man so he obviously hired the people he wanted. If MJ wouldn't have passed away many of you would be thanking AEG & others for helping MJ get his career back on track now you're all just looking for someone to blame. Sad that you don't think he was strong enough or smart enough to make his own decisions. I personally think he was a brilliant entertainer & knew how to take care of his business. The people that he hired were there because he wanted them there not because of some crazy control they had over him. All these assumptions sound like something you'd see in a bad movie. Show MJ some respect for God sake & stop talking like he didn't know what he was naive.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Linda, I've heard Jermaine say that he learned about Michael from his wife. He was on the other side of town, and she called him to ask him had he heard about Michael. He didn't know yet that Michael was dead. Jermaine his mother, who confirmed that Michael was being taken to the hospital - and she was en route. Jermaine called Janet and some other siblings on his way to the hospital. Janet told Jermaine to pull his car over. She then told him that Michael was dead.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

MJ u were always innocent

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

Patty Anderson,

*I* think that MJ did trust DiLeo, Branca and all. I think that was the best team he ever assembled and he really wanted to relive his "Thriller" days– publicity, fame and comeback. Remember, he had his children to think of.

I am not of the belief that Branca, or any of this re-assembled team were in any way bad for MJ. They were the wheels that turned his engine into the top. Branca left because MJ wouldn't fire people around him that were leaches and bad for him. I don't blame Branca.

disclaimer: this is only my opinion. *eyeroll*

Lynn   August 4th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

I dont trust or believe that Frank Dileo at all. He had some real shiffty eyes and if you know your body language at all he was lying. he was obviously avoiding continued eye contact when he was answering questions that the answers were untrue to at least partly untrue. In the later part of the interview, he became more comfortable with the line of questioning and his body language changed.


It is unbelievable that he would find it his place to tell the kids about their dad, he may have knew Michael for a long time but that was before kids. The kids probably didn't know him from Adam.

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

You didn't have to, dear.

Luda   August 4th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

Hi Larry,

Thanks for having Frank Dileo. It was very interesting to have his side of the story!

I agree Michael was not odd but had a very good sense of Marketing.
I've always seen him like Madonna... They're not just artists but great business man and woman.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

There has been talk since the day the concerts were annouonced that AEG ws gambling big because no one beleived MJ would go through with them, they thought his health was an issue. so this has been a matter of great speculation for some time.

Then you have every body and their brothe saying MJ was a drug addict. But then someone else says he was in perfect health and passed the tour insurance physical. If you just look at the published reports, everyone is saying something different.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

And you're still talking? Do NOT address me.

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Eo, San Diego. They have to have every single thing without a doubt before they are able to move forward. If the defense can proof any holes in the case, Dr. Murray will go totally free. If there is any reasonable doubt at all, it will blow the case. You are so right on everything you said.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Well the key is the diprivan. I thought that Frank was supposed to talk about the autopsy report tonight

Luda   August 4th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

What is holding up the report?

The story they thought it was is not the one they found....they don't want to make a mistake, the whole planet is watching what they're doing...

If there are charges they want to do it at the same time they will reveal the autopsy report...

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Patty Anderson,

Yes, there is already talk if Murray can prove a theraputic reason for giving the Diprovan (which will be VERY hard to do), then he might skate. If they can prove there was negligance, such as the report that he left MJ alone and then fell asleep somewhere, or if he covered it up... such as destroyed/tampering with evidence, then there's other charges that would be easier to prove and make stick.

I'm curious. The chef talked about the upstairs being hot. Ok, this is speculation. Possibly, Dr Murray called his Houston staff to remove things from the storage around 9:22am PT. If true, could MJ have been dead at this point?

How would the cororner tell? Body temp? Hmmm.. what happens if the house was so hot his body was kept warm??

Anyone, ideas?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 4th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Thanks, Lex. I don't have time for this.

Larry W Florida   August 4th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

On tonight's show, Larry said that MJ's kids would be good entertainers like MJ and "it is in their genes". He needs to clarify since there is no part of MJ's DNA in these kids.

Carol   August 4th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Wendy.Ontario Canada,
Although you make a great point I also think that MJ was too kind hearted to see the bad motives some people he employed has been said that he was a bag judge of character and somehow he managed to surround himself with leeches and vampires who only wanted to get money out of him...this has been confirmed by Lisa Marie Presley and J Randy taraborelli-of course I give more credibility to the latter as they knew eachother since they were 13 and if anyone from the outside world truly knew MJ it was him.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Well really what did Frank actually tell us?
He was informed by a fan about an ambulance outside MJ's house.
He called Randy Phillips and raced over there.
The ambulance was gone, so he went to the hospital.
A nurse told him MJ was gone, but they would work on him until his Mother got there.
Then he told the kids (was that before Katherine got there??) I kind of got lost there. Where was Randy Phillip. Where was Murray.

This is the first time I have heard that both KAtherine and Joe and Mr. Rowe were at the meeting at the whatever motel it was.

Luda   August 4th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

OH! No, I've seen the name of that Halperin again on this blog.

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

Nicole S.

A couple of days after Michael died–Jermaine came on LKL and Larry asked him how did he find out about Michael; Jermaine said I heard form you guys, Larry said you heard it from CNN and Jermaine said Yes. He then said that after that he called his mother and his mother said that Michael died. What I want to know is how come no one from the house called any of the family members–I don't get it-

EO, San Diego   August 4th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

Patty - thank you and you're very welcome.

Have a great night.

Ann   August 4th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

Something about Frank Dileo isn't veracious.
Michael Jackson onced stated that Dileo was too controlling and trying to control everything.

Michael said that not I, and to me there must be a reason why he said that.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

I met to also add, why take a liver temperature? This was not an "unattended" death. MJ was in the care of a personal physician and was not pronounced until he was at the hospital.

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

I believe they can tell the time of death or at least narrow it done by how rigomortious sets in. From what I've learned after a peson passes the body does certain things each hour after the death occured. But don't quote me on it

Luda   August 4th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

A fan that call Delio to tell him about Michael... that's odd....

He made it sound as though the family was allowed and welcomed to see MJ at anytime but they didn't reach out to him.
JJ said that they weren't allowed to see MJ and were kept from him.

Mara   August 4th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

He also tried to make it sound as if MJ didn't want his family in his business like they were the enemy. What a snake this guy.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:08 pm ET

I think that Mr. DiLeo painted a pretty picture and that the estate stuff was going to get worked out and a compromise was going to happen. But it seems that there are still questions. I do not understand why DiLeo is getting information from a fan. You'd think someone from MJ's entourage would call him. Why didn't SECURITY call DiLeo and the family would't that kind of be part of their job description? Did we ever hear where Miko Brando was that morning? Was he at the hospital? Did he hear about Michael from a "fan" also

Ann   August 4th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

Patty Anderson   August 4th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

So true Ann so true

Lois   August 4th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

I don't think most of the staff at the house knew that Michael was in grave condition (or already gone) when they took him to the hospital. If you listen to the Chef's account, they were not allowed up in the room and they were praying that MJ would be at that point in time, they probably did not know the status of MJ's condition, except that it was very serious.

It is very think even a security with a conscience would try and get in touch with the family (even if they had to ask one of the kids for their grandma's phone number) to get through to them that Michael was in serious trouble and they should get to the hospital.

I really wonder where those security guards are now. I hope that the police have been keeping a good eye on them. Somethings are not adding up and those security guards may be just as at fault as the doctor.

colleen kelly mellor   August 4th, 2009 11:14 pm ET

Larry King is beginning to morph into a male, older version of Nancy Grace, and won't that be an illustrious end to his dynamic career?

Ann   August 4th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

Something is acutely strange about this case.
Someone has to know what really occurred on June 25, 2009.
I feel like another JFK mystery is in the works... and also I feel some kind of conspiracy going on.
It is not odd how there are people who said Michael was healthy and radiant and then there are some that stated he was in dire need of help, that he was fragile and could not have done 10 concerts let alone 50?
Clearly there is only one Michael Jackson, there is not a healthy Michael Jackson one minute and a frail and weak man the next.
Someone is contriving a story....and perhaps we will never know.

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 11:20 pm ET

I do want to give Frank Dileo some credit–he did do an excellent job at managing Michael.

Among the other things previously mentioned that he said : He also said this-
Something happened in that room;
Lloyds of London had their own Doctor perform the physical on Michael and he passed it.

If Michael passed the physical–then How can the media come out with these stories of needlemarks and all that other gargabe

Lois   August 4th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Being that I am on the westcoast, I haven't seen the interview with DiLeo so I will pay extra attention to his body moves, shifty eyes and hands, etc.

As I have always believed AEG, the Managers, were involved somehow in MJ's death. Why are they not releasing MJ's contract with AEG to his mother, why are they fighting it?? What do they have to hide? His mother and family certainly should have a right to know where the money is and how it is going to be spent. I really hope that the Judge rules in Katherine's favour and makes her a co-executor.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

Ann, well now that you mention it,

I was reading an article in the Rolling Stone archives I think it was dated in May. They were interviewing Randy Phillips about what the show would going to look like and it was elephants, Mj doubles, alss sorts of fantastical stuff. The only thing Phillips denied were the elephants.

There was a lot of talk in Rolling Stone about whether or not the concerts were really going to happen.

b   August 4th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

Adrienne -10:26 pm ...true

LAPD needs to do a good investigation. Unlike OJ case, the whole world is watching this one. It will be a shame for them if they fail to bring people involved to justice.

At this time, I will believe what the family is saying. If Joe and Rowe says there is foul play. I would rather believe them than Frank Dileo. They are Michael's family they will have his best interest. People around him in his professional life cannot be trusted. Maybe Dileo could also covering up for AEG. Why would Michael say to people close to him he agreed for 10 shows if he wanted to do 50? Its not one person, but lot of people are coming forward and saying he told them 50 is too much and he agreed for 10. What we hear is totally different. What personally close people are saying is different from what professional people around him are saying.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

I would think that the family probably has the most information. They had a 2nd autopsy and they should have gotten some results. I think the family just wants to know what happened.

But I still wonder how a fan would have Mr. DiLeo's cell number

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

This is getting really strange; these people need to get their stories together.

lindafromnewyork   August 4th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

Who the hell is this fan–that had everybody's cell phone on speed dial?

Ann   August 4th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

How strange that the FANS are the only ones that are sounding like the sole legit sources?
Michael's so called manager didn't knew till fans told him, and the same with Joe Jackson?

Can we have these fans on Larry King??

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Doesn't it all just seem TOO fantastical? Stranger than fiction? All these shady characters, conflicting stories, hirings, firings and rehirings? One side insists he was healthy, the other a raging drug addict. I cannot event tell anymore what side is saying what.

It's funny now to. There were all sorts of leaks coming from the coronor's office and sources close to the investigation. Now things are kind of quiet. I guess something is building up.

Mara   August 4th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

LKL is about to come on again here in Vegas in 25 minutes. I'm going to watch it again because I swear he said something in regards to "he's not dead yet" or "he's still alive" or something like that.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

Really that is what I have been saying. If someone could track down the "fan" we might be able to find something out!

I thought it was strange when Joe Jackson said it.

I was amazed when Frank DiLeo said it. I wonder if it was the same fan?

Ann   August 4th, 2009 11:39 pm ET

It was probably JUNIOR.

Anywho it was likely the congruous fan.

Why didn't any family members acknowledge one another?

Why did a FAN had to do it?
and how did the FAN had all their numbers?

Mr. King, we would love to uncover this fan!

Mara   August 4th, 2009 11:47 pm ET


I should have made my comment clear – when Frank arrived at the hospital that's when he made that comment or something like it as if he were surprised that they were still working on MJ. but how would he know that MJ had passed since he was called by a fan then drove to the hospital. Wouldn't your normal reaction is he? Something other than what I think he said that's why I have to watch it again.

Jessica   August 4th, 2009 11:48 pm ET

Larry, I have watched all of your coverage since Michael Jackson died. You have had so many people on connected to this story, but I always feel that there are many contradictions between everyone's statements. I am very confused, but fascinated at the same time. I wish you could get just one person on your show, that is respected, to explain and make sense of everything. I believe that the reason for the huge interest in MJ's death, is that the public knows we have lost not only an icon, but a man that was a gift from God, who was here to remind us to care for the needy, children and all people. The general public is feeling that there was more to him than an entertainer or superstar. People are viewing his youtube clips, concerts and listening to his music again, and seeing what it was truly about.

Lori   August 4th, 2009 11:56 pm ET

Maybe the "fan" is in actuallity a paparazzi? They always seem to know stuff. Maybe they would have phone numbers?

b   August 4th, 2009 11:56 pm ET

According to THESUN MICHAEL Jackson's parents are hiring private investigators to probe their son's death.

Way to go Joe and Katherine!

Let's see, there were all these people inside the house, Dr. Murray, security, the chef, possibly a nanny for the kids. No one in that house called Michael's family or his manager to tell them that Michael was in cardiac arrest and he was being taken to the hospital? Dr. Murray could have asked anyone of those people to call Michael's family and Frank DiLeo. This was Michael Jackson–I will never understand it. The way this whole thing went down–just doesn't smell right. Someboy is definitely hiding something; I don't who it is or why–but something is totally not right. The only I know is Michael is dead and LAPD better do their job and put the culprit behind bars and we know who that is..

I am glad the journalists are home. They have endured much, as have their families.

Farah   August 5th, 2009 12:01 am ET

I am in agreement with many of the posts-that the delay in the toxicology report is primaraly to nake it look like an overdose case. This is so unfair to the legend.

lindafromnewyork   August 5th, 2009 12:13 am ET

Imagine trying to blame MJ for his own death. Give me a break. Just because some other performer died of an accidental overdose doesn't mean the same thing happened with MJ. It looks like whenever the police are puzzled by a star's death they call it an accidental overdose–Hello Marylin Monroe

I just don't get it. If ever I were to arrive at a hospital with no information the first thing I would ask is "how is he"? Intead the conversation was "Gee I think he's alive". What is that suppose to mean?

Excerpts from Vanity Fair Magazine:
The Jewish mafia and the Italian Mafia behind the conspiracy that murdered Michael Jackson!

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 Excerpts from Vanity Fair Magazine:

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(Known for Rush Hour Movies) 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."

Michael said on the phone that what was happening to him was the result of racism. He told Jesse Jackson in the radio interview, "I'm totally innocent, and it's just very painful. This has been kind of a pattern among black luminaries in this country." He told him he got strength from the examples of Nelson Mandela, Jack Johnson, Muhammad Ali, and Jesse Owens. Novel told me he had said to Michael, "You can either be a victim or a warrior." In his interview, Michael told Jesse Jackson, "I'm a warrior."

Novel told me they had discussed the conspiracy at length on the phone. In the interview, Jesse Jackson asked Michael point-blank about the catalogue and what was in it. Michael said that "it's a huge catalogue. It's very valuable, it's worth a lot of money, and there is a big fight going on right now as we speak about that." He added, "I can't comment on it. There's a lot of conspiracy. I'll say that much."

If Jackson beats these charges, he reportedly has big plans for revenge. A tour called "Framed" has been suggested. There is a deal of about $35 million on the table to sell as a package Neverland—which will be turned into a Graceland-like theme park—and his other assets: book rights, movie rights, even cell-phone ringtones. Only Jackson's heavily encumbered song catalogues are not included. Jackson told Gordon Novel he wants to bring suit against Sony on financial-conspiracy charges. His former business adviser Myung-Ho Lee, who once sat on the board of Sony/ ATV Music, says that Sony's half of the catalogue is unprofitable, due partly to heavy administrative costs, while Michael's share is very profitable. "He's in a box," Lee told me. "The only way out of the box is to sue Sony."

Vol. 34
No. 16


By Todd Gold
It's 9 A.M. and rancher Frank Dileo is padding through his eight-stall horse barn, bidding good morning to his Tennessee walking horses. It's part of his routine since settling in 14 months ago at the Tookarosa Ranch, his 40-acre spread in Ojai, Calif. Not that Dileo is any ordinary rancher. Five-feet-two and a muffin-soft 240 lbs., he is wrapped in sweats and powder blue loafers and tickling a horse's nose with a fat cigar.

Dileo, 42, looks like the kind of man who's more at home making deals than mending fences. And small wonder. As Michael Jackson's manager for five years, he had done just that, shepherding the singer through two hit albums (Thriller, still the biggest-selling LP in history, and Bad), two world tours and into enough endorsements to make them both rich for life. Then, 20 months ago—without warning, Dileo says—he was sacked.

The reason, some speculate, may have been his failure to secure theatrical release for Jackson's feature-length film, Moonwalker, which was eventually released in Europe. "I brought in a $7-or $8-million offer," retorts Dileo, insisting that others had then counseled Jackson against that deal. In February 1989, when he and the singer spoke by phone, Dileo says, it was business as usual, and "everything was hunky-dory." Three days later Jackson's attorney called. "Michael doesn't want to work with you anymore," was all Dileo was told.

Although the dismissal still "hurts plenty," the ex-manager says, any would-be fiscal woes were tempered by a severance package estimated to be worth more than $5 million. As for psychic scars, they were salved by friends like director Martin Scorsese, who called to offer Dileo a part in his gangster film GoodFellas. And so it was that when the movie opened last month, there was Frank Dileo, novice actor, playing the part of a heavy with all the pinkie-ring panache of a Mafia capo.

"I remember reading the script and telling Marty, 'Geez, you gotta give Frank the part of Tuddy. He's perfect,' " recalls actor Joe Pesci, one of the film's stars (along with Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta). "There wasn't much dialogue at first, but it grew when Frank showed he could handle it. The guy's a natural."

Dileo, however, says that moving to the big screen wasn't all that easy. As an old friend of both Pesci and De Niro (Dileo is a partner in De Niro's Tribeca Grill in Manhattan), "I certainly didn't want to fail, the job or their friendship," he says. "It made things a little more intense." He also learned that "when you see yourself for the first time on a movie screen, all you see are the imperfections. I thought, 'God, am I that fat?' But the second time I enjoyed it."

For most of Dileo's life, of course, music, not movies, has provided the enjoyment. The son of a Pittsburgh tavern owner and his wife, Dileo was working as kitchen manager in an Italian restaurant in 1968 when a customer asked him if he would be interested in the record business. "He said, 'You stay up late, eat at nice restaurants and leave big tips.' " Dileo recalls. "It was like they custom-made it for me."

Starting as a record rack jobber—or salesman—he moved quickly into promotion and eventually to Nashville. Then in 1976, feeling burned out, he quit the business, returned home and married Linda Laughlin, a lab technician he had been dating for seven years. Two years later Dileo got himself into trouble and was fined for misdemeanor bookmaking. In 1979 trouble found him: A fire gutted his home, destroying everything. "I sold my Cadillac for $2,000, then bought two blue suits, three white shirts and a plane ticket to New York," he says. Hired by Epic, a subsidiary of CBS Records, he became vice president of promotion within three years, then in 1984 was hired away by Jackson, CBS's biggest star.

Soon, Dileo became the singer's closest confidant in business and his constant companion on the road. Jackson called him Uncle Tookie and, in a 1987 letter to PEOPLE, wrote: "He's loyal. He's competent.... And also my shield of armor. He's my other half. We dream together and achieve together."

Dileo suggests, however, that he didn't always get credit for his marketing savvy. "Don't get me wrong; I think Michael's a tremendous performer," he says. But "whether it was money, record sales or trophies, Michael wanted to be the one who claimed it. He used to wonder, 'Why do they call Elvis the King? Why don't they call me the King?" I'd have to explain."

Now, with his Jackson days behind him, Dileo has had a chance to be a father again to son Dominic, 12, and daughter Belinda, 9. "Before, I was just a guy who was coming home late at night and then, when on tour, once in a while on weekends," he says. "I've had to ease myself back into their lives."

But gradually, it seems. Although Dileo now rides daily through the picturesque hills of Tookarosa—a hybrid of Tookie, a childhood nickname, and Ponderosa—and hangs out with the locals, his five-bedroom ranch house has 24 phones and two fax machines. In a single morning recently, he closed sales on a Nashville recording studio and a music-publishing company he owned. "Most people look at Frank and wonder how anybody like him could be on a ranch," says Linda, wise to her husband's ways. "But he hasn't changed. Not too long ago he was thinking about making a deal to buy the feed store."

Hi Everyone!!!

Nicole, you're sure catching heck tonite. Hey, it was Tito that Janet told to pull over and shut his car off. Then she told him Michael had died.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 1:17 am ET

Hey Junior...Where have you been???

And BOMBSHELL.....Where did the 5 fresh injection marks on Michaels neck come from??? Did we forget about these???

Linda NY...Did you read that article today , on that site I gave, about what Michaels phychiatrist said?

Kim   August 5th, 2009 1:18 am ET

Frank Dileo was not impressive at all tonight. After watching this interview, I'm even more convinced that Michael had nothing but vultures around him.

Frank Dileo was no Michael Jackson's friend. He was brought on this show tonight to refute the claims of Leonard Rowe (who showed much more genuine compassion for Michael's welfare).

Dileo is looking to get PAID, so comes on this show as a so-called "MJ-insider" to support AEG's claims. My suspicion is that he is lying for personal gain. He never had Michael's best interest at stake.

Larry: You'll need to do better than this guy (Frank Dileo) to convince some of us that Leonard Rowe's claims were unfounded, because Dileo's demeanor seemed calculating and deceptive.

jonathan   August 5th, 2009 1:20 am ET

I appreciate Dileo's positive comments about Michael.

However, I question his statements about Leonard Rowe and the contract. He claims MJ signed it and forgot he signed it (yeah, right) and then needed to rescind it. Rowe said he never got a letter I think I believe that.

Then he says Michael didn't want his family in his business but yet MJ has Joe, Katherine and family friend Rowe (more than 40 years) meeting with him and AEG. Frank even admits that Katherine was a trustee in certain matters. Sounds a little fishy to me.

Another thing he says that the meeting took place on May 14th but according to Marlon in an interview that was the last time he saw Michael when they had a family gathering for the parent's 60th wedding anniversary in Vegas. MJ couldn't be in two places at the same time so Rowe's time frame may be right.

Will they please not have Jim Moray on there? He is so tabloidy!

Well Larry, We've asked you for a month now to get some people on your show that genuinely new and loved Michael. You're getting closer, but still havent got there yet. Keep trying.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 1:28 am ET

I meant" KNEW".

Zoie   August 5th, 2009 1:34 am ET

Larry, Why do you keep giving air time to Rowe and Joe Jackson?

It's obvious that Joe wants to file a Wrongful Death Lawsuit and get lots of money for himself, but he knows that Dr. Murray is broke so he's got to set it up in everyone's mind with the help of Rowe that AEG is to blame.

He figures he'll get tons from them, and of course Rowe will get his share with Michael's kids will getting zip.

Larry stop promoting Rowe and Joe every other night. They're using you, and you're complying.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 1:36 am ET

Well we just got home. I spent more than they did. We spent quite awhile at "Chapters". I bought two books of beautiful pictures of Michael. One has only pictures and quotes from he himself on each one, love it. I did notice that "Unmasked" wasnt selling very well. I asked the clerk if they had sold many and she said not one yet. I was happy about that. I have spent so much time either on here or at work { I run a Bed and Breakfast }, so I owed them a little of my time.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 1:41 am ET

I would rather see Joe and Rowe on instead of all these other j_ _ _ _s. And I hope the Jackson family sues the pants off all these people.

cjl   August 5th, 2009 1:47 am ET

What do I think is holding up MJ'S autopsy report? hmmmmmm. Well you see they have to present it correctly, so that it is believable! When is everyone going to look at the other side of the coin? Ya know their are two sides to everything! And from all my investigating, and research, it is and has added up to the fact...that Michael Jackson is not dead! But all of you love the drama. Sorry I dont. Not in my line of work anyways. Remember, its not what you know, its who you know. cjl

louise   August 5th, 2009 1:47 am ET

I do not beleive Frank Dileo. I believe Leonard Rowe is right, MJ didn't want to be used like a circus animal doing 50 shows. MJ put too much energy into his shows, to do that. He wanted to present his best, and there's no way at his age he could have done it, doing 50 shows. Dileo and the others are using compitetion or setting a record as a cover up. There's consistency from Dileo and L. Rowe /Mr. Joe is that MJ kept a distance btw him and his family re; business, in my opinion that was a bad mistake. His family (including Dad Jackson) was there during his molestation trail -there was nothing financial about that support , none of these so -called good friends came out on his behalf during that time. MJ should had kept his dad and his family watching his back. That's why God says honor your parents so that things will go well for you and you'll live a long life. I'm sure God reiterated that portion of the scripture when he passed into eternity. R.I.P.

b   August 5th, 2009 1:48 am ET

I would also believe what Joe and Rowe.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 1:52 am ET

I think Frank DiLeo on LKL has been the best guest on LKL since Michael’s death. He appeared to be sincere, caring and honest…Except for the one comment “ A fan phoned him” that was odd..But other than that, Frank gave a very personal outlook on Michael. I believe Michael was in control of his life (and no one was controlling him)..Let’s not under estimate Michael..He was an intelligent person and MAY (we have to wait for the reports) of made a few bad choices(but haven’t we all). I believe Catherine is a very kind, caring and wonderful person..Michael knew exactly who the best person was to care for his Children. Michael’s children will be in Great hands. I just hope Joe Jackson will not be around the children (He’s a Money hungry, evil Man)..A number of Michael’s siblings, along with Joe are there with their hands out, a Buck to be made on their deceased brother/son..As for Jermaine on LKL on Friday..Who Cares(another sponge).He wants Michael buried at Neverland?? I see $$ signs in his eyes AGAIN..Michael hated that place, after all the false accusations!! Oh yeah, just a little tidbit..Joe and Rowe are Crooks !! Keep them off YOUR show !!

DiLeo said the children were in one room and Katherine was in another. Why were they seperate? Would not the family be together?
How did the children get there? Who was with them? And why would the freaking ER nurse tell DiLeo who is obviously not a family member or next of kin before speaking with the family. To me that seems a little innapropriate.

At one point in the evening, DiLeo says that Michael understood the contract, understood the number of shows and was a good businessman. Yet Michael forgot to send a letter to Rowe to recind a previous contract with Rowe? Again 2 stories that seem to contradict.

Why would there be a meeting with AEG and I don't know who the other person was, KAtherine, Joe, Rowe and Michael without DiLeo being present? DiLeo was the manager, why not just reschedule the meeting until he was available.

AEG had insurance BUT it will go to the estate, no profit for AEG there
The Doctor that did MJ’s physical for the tour, NOT Murray but an outsider picked by the Insurance company, looks like Murray’s not to blame there
100 hours of rehearsal footage that will be sold by AEG, 90% goes to the estate, no big profits there for AEG either.
I don’t understand how anyone could believe AEG wanted MJ dead?
They would have made a ton of money from the tour, now very little.
Of course few people here will believe anything anyone says. MJ WAS in control of his own life, he surrounded himself with the people He wanted. Time to stop blaming everyone that was part of his life. I have no doubt the coroner will say it was an overdose, MJ chose to take the drugs, end of story


I'm an MJ fan and I agree with some of this. Michael's death was very unfortunate and I believe Murray was culpable, but I don't buy into the conspiracy theories that AEG planned to kill Michael.

the jacksons want a payday, plain and simple.

The one that has only photos and quotes from him is a magazine style " My Life, by Michael Jackson". And at the top it says "The King of Pop in his own words", LOVE IT!
Then there is " Commemorative" by Life mag. also very nice.
Then another I bought is all beautiful photos and posters. But I cant really see what the name is. It only has Michael Jackson all over it , so I'll have to check that one closer and let you know.
Then I bought a hard cover that even my daughter liked, and shes only 13 { but turning into an MJ fan}. It is called " Michael Jackson Legend, Hero< Icon" by James Aldis. Also only photos and quotes from Michael himself.

I don't know if anyone planned on killing Michael, but he is dead. And of course his family are grieving and want answers. It seems very confusing with so many different view points and versions. Everything from Michael was healthy to he was spending a lot of time under the influence of medications.

It just seems that for someone with Michael's reputation of health concerns, that a 50 show concert series was a big financial gamble for AEG. Why go out on a limb for Michael this way? Were there some hidden or additional benefit?

Why would Dr. Murray ever even consider using the diprivan? Did he actually use it? If not why was it in the house as it has no therapeutic purpose? I am not sure what if any light the completed autopsy report and tox report will shed on the matter. But it would be interesting to see how the insurance physical lines up with the autopsy..

What did Geraldo talk about tonite?

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 2:38 am ET

Thats my insomnia, it gets on my nerve. But I dont take anything for it. So I just do a little housework, read or be on the computer (alot). Lol

Yes I am in New York.

Did you catch the Nanny speaking on Extra or Access Hollywood? She said she was fired for no reason, and Michael didnt fire her.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 2:40 am ET

Geraldo only comes on the weekends

Toni   August 5th, 2009 2:43 am ET

Isnt it crazy, I feel like I have lost part of my heart. I actually bought a tub to put all of my memorabilia in today. Crazy, but cant help myself. I think it would be nice if now, when they sell anything legit of Michael, it needs to have something on it stating that the monies are going to the jackson trust. Then we would know it was going to the children. Then I would feel better about buying it.

Cindy CANADA   August 5th, 2009 2:43 am ET

What does it mean when it says " Your comment is awaiting moderation"...No one can see it, til it is ok'd?

Toni   August 5th, 2009 2:45 am ET

So who fired her, and why didnt Michael do something? Or is that a dumb question?

Kim   August 5th, 2009 2:49 am ET


I so agree with you about buying MJ's products. I don't want one of my red cents to go to a corporation that might have been involved in orchestrating Michael's demise for their own financial gain.

So as bad as I have wanted to replenish my MJ music collection, I have decided not to buy anything.

The corporate crooks, conspirators and deviants will not make money off of me.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 2:50 am ET

Thats why I bought everything again because the proceeds would be going there.

I didnt catch that part I dont know if she even said it. I will catch it at 4. I thought the Nation of Islam fired her, but now I am hearing the people that was surrounding Michael now.

Kim   August 5th, 2009 2:50 am ET

By the way...Thanks to my man Bill Clinton!! Came to the rescue again. I am so glad the journalists were freed.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 2:53 am ET

I am on the west coast so it is not very late here.

Did I understand that Frank came in as manager AFTER the AEG contract was negotiated? I thought he said the manager at the time and 3 lawyers "read" it to MJ. Who were the lawyers and the manager. AND why would they need to read it to MJ? Michael could read and I bet he had reviewed many contracts in his day, so I thought that was odd, since everyone says Michael was a good businessman. And a good businessman always reads the documents for himself.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 2:53 am ET

Yes Bill Clinton is the Best. I am glad the families are reunited again.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 2:54 am ET

I had to buy the cds and dvds. I couldnt bare not hearing that voice for the rest of my life.
Dont you have a 'Chapters' in NY?

O'Shenia   August 5th, 2009 2:55 am ET


To my understanding, LaToya and the children were at the hospital and LaToya asked a counselor if it was ok to take "Paris" I can't recall if the other children went in to "the other room" to see Michael. I'm quite sure at 11 years old, she knew her Dad had passed. So how is it now that Dileo informed the family. I believe Jermaine and LaToya.


Lori   August 5th, 2009 2:57 am ET

Also, DiLeo said that the tour insurance AEG had for This is It would pay out to the estate, but that doesn't seem quite right. I would have thought that tour insurance protected AEG's interest and would help cover all the money they advanced on the project. Tour insurance does not seem like it would be an estate asset.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 2:57 am ET

Yes and in the majority the stuff you have seen about Michael he was always reading his own documents. If they had to *read* it to them was probably because they had Michael drug and incoherent to really comprehend of what was going on in his surroundings.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 2:59 am ET

Michael was a good business man. Thats what is sooo strange about it all. I dont think he had any control over his or his childrens lives since he came back from Bahrain.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 2:59 am ET

Or the horror! Ian Halperin was correct when he said that MJ was loosing his sight and was blind in one eye

Lori   August 5th, 2009 3:00 am ET

I read somewhere that MJ and AEG had been in negotition since 2007

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:02 am ET


Not that I know of. I will find out though

Sandra   August 5th, 2009 3:02 am ET

Dang I miss Michael. He did not have to die. Makes me werry of my own age; I am not fare behind him; 2 years. I grew up with him. I know his family is truely missing him. Its hard to lose a brother, son , & father, but not this way. It should not have happened.

And thanks CNN for the daily updates on everything. It helps us people who truely were fans of his, deal with his passing.

God Bless & Comfort the Whole Jackson family.............

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:03 am ET

And remember too, Michael was having his mother sitting with him at all of his business affairs for the last few years. But with this tour, She was not allowed anywhere at all that had to do with it ......Why. Why all of a sudden would Michael not want his mother there?

Allure   August 5th, 2009 3:05 am ET

Does somebody know if Dieter Wiesner, MJ's former manager (I think till 2003) made a statement??
Thank you!

Lori   August 5th, 2009 3:06 am ET

Well DiLeo said she was at the meeting with Rowe and Joe and AEG and of course Michael and he also said that Michael had made her trustee of some things. I wonder what? I assumed he was talking business rather than guardianship of the children.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:06 am ET

Halperin can BITE ME!!!

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:09 am ET

Ive never heard of him before.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 3:10 am ET

I am calling it a night...see you soon

Allure   August 5th, 2009 3:12 am ET

really? He's from Germany and it seems he took care of MJ's business from 1997 till 2003.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:12 am ET

I still think there should be one family member as the 3rd executor. What happens when these two guys are dead? His mom should be on it , and then hand it down to Janet or Jermaine when shes gone. I think Janet would be a very wise choice after Mrs.J.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:15 am ET

Me either, never heard of him. Yes Halperin can. And Goodnight Lori.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:22 am ET

I just wish we would hear from the people that genuinely cared about him. I am so tired of these manipulaters, money hungry pigs and 15 minute famers. I will be so happy to hear Jermaine on friday. I just hope Larry lets him have his say and not bring up the DNA of the kids, the molestation crap etc. Its getting really old. Its almost like they dont WANT to hear anything good about Michael, let alone let it be aired. I cant believe after {over} a month, we have not had one CNN coverage of al the good Michael did in his life. The more bizzare and gory details they can dig up, the better for them I guess.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:22 am ET

Katherine and Janet would be a very good and wise choice. A family member should be included in it so no (more) shady business could go down.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:23 am ET

Goodnight Lori. 🙂

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:27 am ET

Yes its ashame how the media refuses to acknowledge all the good things Michael has done. It's like they are determined to ruin his name.

Toni did you see the Farrakhan address on Michael Jackson?

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:28 am ET

In one of my new books there is a beautiful photo of Michael and Janet. Very loving, you could tell they loved each other very much. It was around the time of the "Scream" era. I believe. Very Very nice.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:30 am ET

No, I heard you all talking about it, but our comments were really going crazy that day , so I didnt want to leave then I forgot. What do I type in?

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:37 am ET

I'll have to ask my daughter, but before we left for shopping, I was watching ET. And I heard something about the Jackson family finally hearing the cause of Michaels death, and they were crying and sickened. Did you hear anything? I dont know if it was from Mrs. Js attny or what. I only caught the tail end of it.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:40 am ET

Looks like everyone left us insomniacs.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:48 am ET

Yep Katherine attorney's said they know the cause of death but he couldnt say what it was. But Katherine said it was a natural death. And thats all I heard. What did they do to MIchael. Because if it was just an accidental dose, it would not get those type of responses.

Yes they left. They cannot hang out at all.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:52 am ET

Last nite her attny said that they knew the cause and there could be criminal charges. So if Mrs. J said it was a natural death, then Murray, AEG , they'll all go free!!!!!!?????

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 3:54 am ET

OOOPsssssssss, my mistake

Katherine said it wasnt a natural death

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:54 am ET

Not one thing adds up to a natural death. I dont get it. On Geraldo she said the opposite.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:56 am ET

God Jacquelyn, you scared the crap out of me.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:59 am ET

On that note, I better call it a night / morning. I'll talk to you tomorrow 🙂

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 4:05 am ET

Same here. Good night/Early Morning to you too. Didnt mean to scare you. Bye:)

Cecelia   August 5th, 2009 4:29 am ET

The whole thing is absurd. They probably didn't find anything. I find it very hard to believe that anyone that loved children as much as this man did would want to do anything like this. He stood for what is right.
Why on earth would he want to set this example for other children. Until that report is back, I for one am not buying it. No one could dance and sing for 12 hrs straight, do something like this, and get up and sing and dance like that again. Something happened to him and I hope and pray that we find out what.

Tim Stevesand   August 5th, 2009 4:29 am ET

I feel that the release of the two journalists was a major victory for the new administration. Pure genius to send someone like Bill Clinton to take care of the job. When Obama tapped Hillary he was getting two for the price of one. Bill has had his share of problems, but is truly the elder statesman that this country needs. He does understand diplomacy. Something George W. could never comprehend. My only hope is that this will lead to a safer world. Obama is smart enough to understand that we need to reach out and communicate with everyone. We have spent to many years preaching hate and fear and and our way or the highway. I truly believe we are headed in the right direction. We just need to give it a chance.

mark fox   August 5th, 2009 4:31 am ET

Don"t get me wrong, Larry, but when is the media – including yourself – going to discuss the extremely valid conspiracy angles on this oh so nicely contrived, and executed, manslaughter 'coverup' ?

The holes are so gaping in this diprivan/manslaughter sleight of hand, that I wonder when one of you journalists is going to fall into one of them, like:

– the unbelievably long period of time that the good Dr. Murray was (suspiciously) upstairs with Michael that morning – late by two hours for his usual appearance in the kichen to fetch Michael's breakfast..

– and then waited another 25 minutes before he called 911...

– and then another hour on site with the paramedics before getting Michael to the hospital, which is where he should have been taken literally hours before...

– Why doesnt anyone discuss further, the fact that Michael's death will make MANY people rich!? , and that – now almost a cliche – he will be worth much more dead than he was worth alive. Only, of course, he won't be alive to enjoy it... but, many others will...! ! !

I agree with La Toya – I am quite certain that Michael was murdered, and that so far, we are being deceived with all of this Diprivan/Propofol poppycock.

In order to try and motivate Michael's fans into demanding a proper murder inquiry into his VERY suspicious death, I have written a song called "St. Michael". Anyone interested can hear/download it at:

If you agree with me, what are YOU going to do about it?

Lisa S   August 5th, 2009 5:17 am ET

EO, San Diego:

Thanks a lot for the update. I agree totally with you. If we are fans we should not pass judgement on those people he cared about and decidedto have in his life.

I think we should try to watch and listen to these people with open minds. If we are just going to say "they are lying" if they are saying anything against what we believe or what we dont want to hear, what is the point in listening to them at all?

There are a lot to Michael that is not public and he was not a victim personality. He was very smart and aware of things. We dont need to take a "protectvie". I dont belive either that AEG wanted to murder Michael.

Most people dont want to mix family and buisness. And if it is true as Joe said that their last meeting ended up him screaming and shouting about dollars and pounds I can understand what in his personality that made Michael choose another person to negociate for him.

I love Michael forever but he made som bad choices along the path of his life. The biggest according to me:

1. Not letting Blanket have a mother like the others

2. Setteled the first child molesting case. If he had done that back then when he was younger maybe he had had more strenght to bounce back after and it wouldnt have broken him down so much.

3. Fireing people and hire them all the time. Had been better to try to sort the problems and conflicts out. He was impulsive and sensitive and have hurt people that genuinly cared about him just becuase he didnt think.

4. Not having enough fun! If he had allwed him self to have more fun and enjoy life more he would have done much better healthwise.

But he is still the best!!!!

Samantha - South Africa   August 5th, 2009 5:29 am ET

Katherine told Gerlado at Large over the weekend that her son was too young to have died from natural causes and that she knows something but doesn't want to say.I also think that the reason LAPD are taking forever to release the autopsy results is because they want to make it seem as if Michael's death were his own doing and nobody else's.If this is indeed the case then that means Dr Murray and all those other scanvengers will get off the hook and worse,get away with murder!!!

Lisa S   August 5th, 2009 5:34 am ET

Just watched the larryking/dileo interview.

I have a lot of trust in Dileo and think he is right when he says there is no foul play in this. Joe and Rowe seemed like they were in la la land when beside Dileo.

Promise   August 5th, 2009 5:39 am ET

In my opinion, the Autopsy is already out but not to the public yet. I think there might be some irregularities found about his death. So, they might be waiting for full investigation before releasing it to the public.

Allure   August 5th, 2009 5:43 am ET

Oh common, stop it! We’ll never know and it’s none of our business. However I really hope there was someone in MJ’s life who truly loved him as a human being and not as a super star.

annie   August 5th, 2009 6:01 am ET

What about the state MJ's body was in; wounded all over, broken kneecaps, fresh blue bruisses on legs, his back was full off cuttingwounds, what about his state of crushed genitalien in childhood, starved and dehydrated body, the skin of head did his brains burned from that commercial, his own hair gone and maybe theeths to, gone is his nose who opperated him and "they"still pushed him to go perform cause MJ was forced. these tecnics are being used centurys to Kill anyone. its clear that those ones are thinking that the hole world is a imbecil and they are laughing when they are bringing someone down and blame himself. nobody belief u when u are saying the truth, stupidity and lies killing the humanrace.

Maria   August 5th, 2009 6:40 am ET

But they told me
A man should be faithful
And walk when not able
And fight till the end
But Im only human

Everyones taking control of me
Seems that the worlds
Got a role for me
Im so confused
Will you show to me
Youll be there for me
And care enough to bear me

"Will you be there" Michael Jackson

Great artists are controled by evil bussinesmans. The showbussines industry is in wrong hands. the truth must be spoken , it has to end.
Love you Michael , Rest in Peace!

L.A.P.D. always botches high profile cases and because they dislike MJ, so much I don’t expect this case to be any different. I don’t think they found the amount of drugs in his system they wanted to find so they could minimize him and make him a simple drug addict so now instead of hauling Murray’s butt in and charging him with murder they don’t know what to do. Disgusting.

Don't think DiLeo would have had the courage to answer any of their

Don't let the MJ story go Larry.....his fans need to know the facts!!!

b   August 5th, 2009 7:59 am ET

from mirror news:

This is the doctor who declared Michael Jackson fit for his gruelling London gigs, just weeks before the singer's fatal heart attack.

Dr David Slavit's examination results were handed to the insurers of Jackson's planned 50 O2 concerts.

But officials were surprised Jackson passed the medical, despite a history of health problems.

It left finance chiefs joking that the examination must have been based on, "the body of a Nasa astronaut" rather than the 50-year-old star.

They wondered why the paper made no mention of the King of Pop's widely-known medical troubles, including a singed scalp, plastic surgery or broken leg.

And Dr Slavit's report is now at the centre of a multi-million pound row between concert promoters AEG and insurers Robertson Taylor.

After receiving the results, the Londonbased brokers arranged for their own tests to be carried out before sealing a deal with AEG.

The firm dispatched a medic to LA to conduct the tests, but Jackson said he was unable to see him.

Bosses did sign a deal insuring an initial number of the London gigs but only subject to their own rigorous tests being carried out in the UK.

They insisted on being at Jacko's scheduled stage rehearsal on July 10 at the O2 – and wanted to do a full examination next day.

But because Jackson died on June 25 – after the insurance deal had been signed, but before the "subject to" details were ratified – a dispute has broken out. Legal papers also showed the singer only ever wanted to perform at 10 London gigs. Sources close to the final deal suggest he was "bullied" into agreeing to 50 shows.

Advertisement – article continues below »

A spokesman for AEG said: "AEG did not hire any doctor at any time in connection with securing insurance.

"Dr David Slavit performed the medical exam which was submitted to the insurers as part of their underwriting.

"Aeg has never received a copy of Dr Slavit's medical exam.

"A second medical examination was scheduled in the UK when the tour arrived. The policy was issued in a fictitious name."

New York plastic surgeon Dr Slavit made out Jacko's medical certificate in the name "M Jones". It is standard practice for celebrities to use a pseudonym to prevent embarrassing personal health details leaking out.

The ear, nose and throat specialist has been subject to a search warrant by the Los Angeles coroner who is investigating Jackson's death.

Dr Slavit, who lives in New Jersey with his wife Robin, 49, and three young children, refused to comment yesterday on his decision to give the star a clean bill of health. His receptionist said: "I have passed on your messages but he will not be speaking."

patty   August 5th, 2009 8:04 am ET

Why did the manager let Michael destroy himself? He had to know and even though Michael was determined to get the drugs, shouldn't or did he try to intervene? Also why isn't he screaming for the coroner to release his report. The news people should be all over the lapd coroners office to release the details.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 8:17 am ET

hello everyone... hello ladies...

i guess they delayed it, because LAPD/DEA wants to sure that everything is accurate and 100% reliable because Michael Jackson is a High Profile celebrities.. i just hope that they are doing their jobs fairly and accurately.. not in favor to anybody. Michael's death is a chain reaction.. from his money, wealth and death.. i totally think that there's conspiracy with all this things.. His life was really tortured.. and it's not supposed to be.. but because he was surrounded with greedy and user people. so everyone's in his inner circle.

we are here.. you and me.. mj's fans... we can voice our thoughts and stand together for one big reason For Michael Jackson... and this media can not break and destroy us.. we strong and firm.. by sharing our thoughts and voicing our thoughts.. i'm sure God will hear us..

"Deathbed of Michael Jackosn"

diane diamond- in the photo there's land line telephone.. that was not master bedroom of MJ.. it's room for Dr. Murray..

and the question is- why murray said there's no land line phone? that's why they couldnt call 911??? delayed 30 minutes...

Cocovelvet   August 5th, 2009 8:33 am ET

Really, after watching this LKL show with Frank DiLeo, I am now convinced of what Leonard Rowe said about MJ, "...that MJ was being controlled and at the end he was not allowed to make his own decisions. He was controlled by the people who paid his bills".

Ofcourse DiLeo is disputing that statement made by L.Rowe because he is covering up something. At the same time disagreeing with Rowe, DiLeo goes on to say that MJ did not want any of his family around his business dealings. The fact that they probably knew about that fact between MJ and his family could have 100% made them to take advantage of MJ and completely alienate him from his family and controlled him like Rowe said.

And MJ ofcourse ended up under their control bait coz they were paying for his bills; e.g. AEG was paying for his rent in his rented mansion, AEG was to make an advanced payment in London to Murray upon MJ's request and other things probably we are not aware of.

If all this was so, how ccould DiLeo dismiss the fact that MJ was being controlled!!!???...ofcourse he was one of those controllers and he knows something about all this mystery surrounding MJ's death.

Lastly, I don't know what DiLeo think he was doing tellling those kids about their fathers death; that on its own was non of his business and the Jackson family is so large that there could have been someone who could have done it. Anyway, the rest of the family were also there at UCLA to have told the kids; Jemaine and La Toya.

Cocovelvet   August 5th, 2009 8:50 am ET

This DiLeo is clearly a liar and betrayer; .....I just couldn't believe it when he said MJ signed that contract and forgot that he did which stopped Rowe undertaking further services with him. In actual fact I also believe there was never such a contract as Leonard said he never received that letter stating his services were terminated with MJ, and all Mr. Rowe knew was that he was going to be working for MJ during his london tour........MY GOD WHAT A LOAD OF LIES FROM ALL THESE SMOOTH CRIMINALS!!!!.....

kathy   August 5th, 2009 8:51 am ET

Who took the pictures of the ambulance and MJ on the stretcher?

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 8:51 am ET

Very important questions
Why did Frank DiLeo, on arriving at the hospital say to staff, quote, "Oh is Michael still alive ?"unquote.
Shouldn't the question be e.g., How is Michael ?

Who rang DiLeo on the morning of the 25th June 2009 to say that MJ was ill ?
Was it Dr Murray or Micheal himself ? Why didn't DiLeo, knowing that MJ was seriously ill, ring 911 ?
Why was DiLeo not asked this question on the programme ?

Why did DiLeo take the responsibility of informing MJ's children that they had lost their father !

O'Shenia   August 5th, 2009 8:58 am ET


@ Lisa, I feel a lot of things that Dileo spoke were true, but when it comes to foul play.. He is not being truthful.... If he was to take a lie detector test and were asked about FOUL PLAY he would not pass, and quess what people, I don't believe that 90% of AEG insurance policy would go to MJ Estate.. I work in corporate AMERICA, the biggest crooks around, but BUSINESS IS BUSINESS. The biggest crooks in the world are in high places of government.

cocovelt-re: …..I just couldn’t believe it when he said MJ signed that contract and forgot that he did which stopped Rowe undertaking further services with him.
I misundestood what he said; I thought he said that Leonard Rowe forgot that he received the letter that Michael supposedly signed.

I also don't understand why MJ would need to have a contract read to him-I can understand having his manager and there in case he a question; but why TO READ THE CONTRACT TO HIM–As far as I know MJ was quite smart.
In One breath Frank Dileo said that MJ did not want his family involved in his business and that he liked to keep the two separate; Next he says how Michael, Randy Phillips, Michael Parents and He met at the Hotel in Beverly Hills along with Leonard Row and when they left the meeting, MJ said we need to fire Rowe.

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 9:18 am ET

One of the things Frank Dileo also said was that He didn't believe that Michael was guilty in either case. He said that Michael loved children too much to ever do any of those things he was accused of.

Cathy   August 5th, 2009 9:27 am ET

Well this is my thoughts. Yes we all loved Michael Jackson and his music, but you have to admit his lifestyle was strange; his family life too. I think the question we have to ask is.....Did Michael take the drugs to hide his real pain of being raised by a truly barbaric man that cared nothing about his kids.....just the money! Shame on Joe Jackson for doing whatever he did to this child!!!! The only one who will admit to what was done to him is now gone!!! I honestly think the autopsy is being held because of what it will reveal.... Unfortunately Michael apparently was addicted to drugs....but where was his family.....They all say they were close, but apparently not close enough!!!! I feel bad for Michael's children, but am glad they are in a good place without that father figure Joe Jackson. The last thing those children need is to go through what Michael did in his childhood. Unfortunately Michael has to be part of the blame for the addiction, and certainly everyone of those doctors that gave him the drugs....but I feel someone, I don't know who that would have been....maybe friend Elizabeth Taylor....other so called friends....should have seen this if they were that close to Michael; helped him through this addiction. He new alot of people. I don't think he could have bought real friends off!

For all you people who have you had enough of hearing MJ news on Larry King, I say Larry please don't stop.

Again in history we are in the middle of a lot of cover ups, from friends and family to business associates of MJs. The public figures, doctors, lawyers, business execs in this world need to know that we are not going to continue to believe the garbage out of their mouths. And they have to be held accountable. We can't set back and say well ok, he was an addict..... Who helped MJ become addicted, the doctors, the public, the lawyers, etc. Lets at least make sure the whole truth comes out.

Maybe we can save someone in our family or some other talented person in the future. I'm tired of losing the great ones to self destruction and plots by inner circles. Priness Di, JFK, etc

Amy   August 5th, 2009 9:48 am ET

We all know that Michael had a drug problem. The thing is Dr. Murray should have known better than to give him something that's not supposed to be administered anywhere but inside a surgery setting in a hospital. So my theory about why the delay in the autopsy findings is that they are waiting to find that "smoking gun" on Dr. Conrad Murray. Even Katherine Jackson said that she knows that her son didn't die of natural causes. That he was too young for that. She just can't figure out what it is just yet.

I have always had my worries about Dr. Murray. Why would he take off for like 3 days after Michael died. To me if he was innocent and did nothing illegal he should have stayed put and made it look better upon himself than just take off like that.

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 10:07 am ET

Hy everybody.I agree with the 1. comment of the blog,with Linda.The only reason is,so thay can lie,that MJ-s make hes on death,couse he was addictid.

suz   August 5th, 2009 10:09 am ET

My Suspicious Mind (on MJ' death, AEG and SONY)

shouldn't anybody be checking the following?:

AEG can gain more money on MJ's death (from insuring the project) than his concerts since they knew beforehand that he was not physically fit enough to do them...

how bout Sony (which if I'm correct co-owns the beatles catalogs with MJ)
when michael died, they can control what to do with it now.

my mind screams possibility of a sophisticated murder plot.

Dana   August 5th, 2009 10:12 am ET

I think the coroner knows what killed Michael, I think they are waiting to get more evidence against the enablers Especially Dr. Murray.
at the families request.

Dana   August 5th, 2009 10:15 am ET

linda from NewYork,
I agree with you all the way. They know what happened but they want to make it look like Michael did it to himself... I wonder how much the LAPD is being paid to cover it up.

Luda   August 5th, 2009 10:21 am ET

Maria : Great artists are controled by evil bussinesmans. The showbussines industry is in wrong hands.

"Money" by Michael Jackson

Lie for it
Spy for it
Kill for it
Die for it
So you call it trust
But I say it's just
In the devil's game
Of greed and lust
They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money....

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 10:28 am ET

Luda-thank you for those Lyrics–If that doesn't give the reasons that MJ died; I don't what does.

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 10:31 am ET

Dana, Stu, Lex, Adrienne:

Lisa S   August 5th, 2009 10:36 am ET

Thanks for commenting my posting:

Dom UK: Of course I noticed that there were not in the same room. Rowe was in one place, Joe in another and Dileo in on a different day and only commenting what the others had said days before 🙂

Smantha SA: Im totally with you. Im not talking about right or wrong. I just thought that if all of it had been sorted out openly. The world would clearly see that Michael was innocent and that the people was out after money. Now, the roumours and speculations went on and I think it took hard on Michael. Always having tried to to his best and help people it was horrilble for him to think that there are people having those thoughts about him. I think it affected his mental state and I think that was a bigger factor in his sleeping problems than the burned scalp.

Jacquelyn: Yes, the family know Michaels death cause but I doubt it will ever be made public.

For everybody:
Instead of looking at what we have lost – look at what we got! 40 years of Michael Jackson, full or music, inspiration, dance, preformances. He left too soon, yes, but he has given enough tools and inspiration for us to continue his mission at leastfor the rest of our own life time!

Love you Michael!

Cocovelvet   August 5th, 2009 10:44 am ET

To Linda:

I can bet to you all those stories of MJ telling DiLeo after the meeting to fire Rowe are just fabricated lies; thats also one of the issues Dileo mentioned which surprised me.

Why avoid telling Rowe during the meeting other than discussing the issue between them the two, MJ and Dileo!!???...Its all so strange ,isn't it!!!????I mean it boils down again to the issue which Leonard Rowe raised during LKL by saying why didn't they give him the letter of termination during that meeting if at all the letter was there!!!???

This shows really how these criminals were controlling MJ and they could have probably threatened MJ as well. This DiLeo was just contradicting himself all the way during the show.......only a liar like him could make such contradictions.

Aixa from Argentina   August 5th, 2009 10:46 am ET

Lora: "Don’t let the MJ story go Larry…..his fans need to know the facts!!!"

I agree with you!, Michael deserves it... Anyway, I belive with my heart that God will make his part to put light into this sad and case in wich great part of media did its best to make MJ's life a hell on earth...

Go for the true Larry!, but please keep Michael's childs apart who have enough with their pain...

God bless MJ and all his fans!

Sara   August 5th, 2009 10:48 am ET

Intially I believed that Mj died of natural causes, but as this story goes on and on – the more it looks like foul play.
I am really starting to believe that he died of an accidental overdose, something Murray or his counterpart adminstered mistakenly and then panicked so as to not help Mike immediately.
I don't really see why AEG would want Mj dead...but I think that shady business was taking place regarding finances or control.
Many people undermine Joe Jackson – lets not forget that this man is a brilliant businessman especially in the entertainment field..he does know what he is talking about even if others don't concur.

Hey Samantha South Africa – where about in SA are you from ??

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 10:53 am ET

Exactly-Why not just tell Rowe at the meeting face to face.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 10:55 am ET

Why doesn't someone just ask Katherine Jackson what went down at that meeting? DiLeo said she was there. I would believe her account would be the most accurate. I think the word of trust here is Katherine Jackson!

Honorine   August 5th, 2009 10:56 am ET

I'm very suspicious about this delay. There is so much room being given for issues to be manipulated upon and adjusted. What's happening? We can't even trust anybody from this point. I mean anybody. It's ridiculous. So much pollution in the air already. I'm about to chock!!!

Allure   August 5th, 2009 10:57 am ET

for Cathy (9:27 am ET):

You say “Unfortunately Michael apparently was addicted to drugs....but where was his family....”
I am convinced he was a smart guy and he was aware of what drugs might do to his body. As every addicted, MJ probably didn’t want to hear what his family, especially his mother, had to say………

Love and Peace for Michael

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 11:06 am ET

You know what, I know Larry King is sick of us because it looks like no matter who he has on regarding MJ; we feel they're not being honest. I think what is going on is that the stories never match. If we had one consistent version then we wouldn't have so many questions. Why do we keep hearing different versions of who told the children about Michael, How they found out something was going on at the house, and then the Biggie--we find out that MJ died alot earlier than previously reported. Why all the inconsistencies?

Lisa   August 5th, 2009 11:08 am ET

Have your producers do their homework please!
Look at the Wiki for all of your guests-
Leonard Rowe
Frank Di Leo
Dr. Arnold Klein
They all have questionable pasts. It is fact, not fiction.
While they might make for an interesting show, why would their interviews hold any validity. They all "loved" Michael so much! They loved the $$ he produced for them.
It is truly sad that Michael did not have the proper investigative people doing background checks on anyone who he had contact with. He was so worried about the "public" adoration infringing on his privacy, in the meantime, his closest "friends" and advisors were all of questionable nature and using and enabling him.
In addition, Lloyds of London supposedly did a 4 hour exam and didn't see needle marks????

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:08 am ET

WOW. Thanks to whomever posted the article re: the insurance coverage. It makes sense to me that the inurance underwriters would require a 2nd opinion on MJ, especially as the shows grew nearer.

This is a many layered beast we have here. It is going to take time to uncover the truth of the matter since there are so many players.

I am choosing to beleive the family is this matter. They lost a son, a father, brother, uncle. Everyone else lost either a money maker, or an obstacle to making said money.

Poor Michael Jackson a mysterious man in life and an even greater condundrum in death. What a sad loss of such a huge talent and gentle soul.

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 11:14 am ET

Linda,its true.Dont mether,who Larry King talk to about this kace,peaples not happy about it,but this is Not Larrys fault,but all peaples araund the storie,who are possibly in it,or corrupt.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:14 am ET

Ya know, I think all those "psychics" that were reporting that MJ died early in the morning around 8am and that he had a problem with his oxygen and that he was "kept in a state of stasis"; are turning out to have been just as accurate as all the "unnamed sources speaking on the condition of anonyminity" (sp). They are just as belieavable as everyone else we have heard from in this matter.

Mrs. Jackson does not beleive that Michael died of natural causes, and neither do I. Joe Jackson thinks it was "foul play". I think the family would be in a position to know more than the public. So I am going to support them.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:17 am ET

I think someone really needs to check DiLeo's phone records for June 25 and find out who this so-called "fan" is that supposedly let him know that an ambulance was at MJ's home.....

this is just implausible

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 11:18 am ET

In few words can somebody tell me,wath MJCSI faund out today,so i dont have to reaf 100-s of comments? 🙂

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:19 am ET

stu – do you get larry king? just watch that. maybe it is on youtube by now. otherwise nothing else new

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:20 am ET

Oh and TMZ dot com is reporting on all the deals the estate is trying to make to bring in the money

Lori   August 5th, 2009 11:23 am ET

I am not really concerned about the "delayed" autopsy and tox report. I am just curios because I want to know something. I think they originally said 6 to 8 weeks and I think they are still within that time frame. They will release it when they have most of the pieces lined up. I don't think there will be any charges for a while - they have so many doctors to look at!

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 5th, 2009 11:27 am ET

I just watched LKL which I taped.

Apparently even in death people close to Michael still lie. Who is telling the truth, who did he want as his manager, was he controlled, how many concerts are we talking about?

MIMI   August 5th, 2009 11:31 am ET



Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 11:33 am ET

I cant finde it yet,but hopefuly later...

Mara   August 5th, 2009 11:36 am ET

Jacquelyn – Linda didn't you find it suspicious when Dileo said "gee I think he's still alive" to Randy Phillips? That just sticks in my brain.

Gloria   August 5th, 2009 11:40 am ET

Couldn't agree more with LindafromNewYork. It will end up being an "accidental overdose" so that MJ did it to himself.... and the good Dr. Murray walks away.... I think that the whole story needs to be put out there.... time of death, what happened before the 911 call... all the details.... but, of course the truth is too much to ask for in this case...

A.   August 5th, 2009 11:43 am ET

Michael had a history of firing people by method of letter, furthermore he always made sure it was never him personally that fired anyone. When he fired Branca years ago, Branca was notified by Someone else other than MJ. Yes michael was in a tough spot must be hard to decipher who was using you and who was telling the truth. of course you can bet on the fact that everybody had opinions about about who should be fired, who should stay. And sometimes Michael listened and sometimes he didnt. How could he fire the only lawyer that essentially got him the beatles catalogue? The point is when you in THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS its very cut and dry. They lie to your face and then stab you in the back. This is not a nice business people, so you cant expect that business would be done in a rational, traditional way. There's a great book out there written by Randy taraborelli, which is one of michaels freinds for 40 years that discusses in detail about everything about Micahel, i reccomend everyone to read it if you truely want to know what he was like, Its a biography, called The magic, the madness, the whole story.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 5th, 2009 11:44 am ET


Regarding your statement Jermain this Friday will give an answer to the question whether Michael was a muslim, I can only say that I suggested a couple of times on this blog Larry should do this, but the first time Larry asked Jermaine, a few days after MJ's passing, he avoided a straight answer and the second time he asked Joe and Joe said he did not know it.

All we know is that no imam has come forward to confirm it and Cat Stevens/ Yusuf Islam has denied he was present at his conversion. He writes on his personal blog he doesn't know either.

We also heard that MJ reached out to gospel singer Andre Crouch (he was conducting the memorial service) some weeks before his death. Crouch writes on his blog they prayed together in the name of Jesus and MJ asked for guidance of the Holy Spirit during the upcoming London tour.

Lola   August 5th, 2009 11:45 am ET

someone mentioned the use of elephants and MJ doubles were to be used in the London Concerts? I think one of the MJ doubles may have been used to make the press announcement of the concert. The more I see that clip, the more I am certain that it is not the real MJ. Can anyone investigate this, Larry? Such as voice pattern tests, body language experts, etc.????? it just adds another level to an already perplexing situation.

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 11:46 am ET

I wish I had taped it–I can't remember exaclty when he said–can you refresh my memory--
Elisheva from Israel–Since you just watched can you help?

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 11:48 am ET

Gloria–That's why I'm saying-why the secrecy?

mariau   August 5th, 2009 11:52 am ET

Michael Jackson's special administrators want the estate to cash in on a song one of his brothers performed at the memorial, but time is of the essence.

In docs filed with the court, lawyers for the estate say they've negotiated a very favorable agreement for the estate with Apple Inc., for the promotion, distribution and sale of the audio and audiovisual recordings of Jermaine Jackson's performance of the song, "Smile" at the memorial service.

They claim there is currently "a heightened demand for such products due to Jermaine Jackson's moving performance during the memorial service, which may diminish over time."

But they need to act quick, so they're asking the judge to approve the deal ... ASAP.

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 11:54 am ET

I understood it was MJ's decision to buy the Beatles catalogue after a conversation with Sir Paul McCartney. MJ was the top bidder. Although his lawyer was involved, it should not be attributed to his lawyer as such.

Mary Lee   August 5th, 2009 11:54 am ET

Dileo gets around fast as well. Read a story that he is down on his horse ranch in Tenn. wanting to buy feed stores, etc.- a month before he was around Michael and at the hospital, getting a physcologist to speak to the kids–Ahmmm-Did he happen to grab a hold of one in the ER while all this was going on? I think not! Whats up with having a stranger tell the children about their father passing away? Don't they know how to convey that message? Some of these stories are running amok.

I do not think the LAPD has much say so in this as much as the DEA and Coroners Office does now. It will be LAPD who maybe brings in most of these jokers who enabled, who lied about those prisciption bottles. Maybe they will bring some of these people in before some kind of word comes from the Coroner, there are a lot of people to investigate. I just don't get why we haven't heard anything about the Medical Board filing charges agaisnt this doctor in the meantime. He admitted he used the stuff, in a private setting, without a license, without formal training to administer this drug, without proper equipment and staff. The media keeps saying that this Proponol is not classified a controlled drug, what do you call it then when it can only be used in certain enviroments? this Dr. admitted to giving ti to Michael, thats good enough for me to bring the idiot in and lock him away.
Unfortunately, there were way too many pirannahs around Michael, calling all kinds of shots, saying all kinds of things to throw off any suspicion, but in the end, they will all get caught. If they were such good friends and were looking out for his best interest, why is he gone and gone under very suspicious cicumstances?

Cocovelvet   August 5th, 2009 11:56 am ET

Amongst all the important issues raised around MJ's death, I think the survaillance tape which was reported missing from the house carries all the important answers to all the puzzles which are rippling through everybody who cares about MJ.

How could such an important piece of information just disappear like that and nothing is hardly mentioned whether anything is being done to try and locate or look for it!!!???....unless if maybe I'm wrong something is actually done!!???

Its almost two months since the death of MJ and every report only mention investigations which seem not to bear any fruits at the end. Or is it just a matter of playing around with time until the investigation finally conclude that they haven't found any thing???

Its logical that by now the survaillance tape is either destroyed or it is in the hands of very vicious and dangerous people. The tape contains all or most of what happened in the house that morning, and thats why it disappeared. But those who have it , I believe have very high plans with it; they are maybe just letting the dust to settle a bit and they will start their own little fiasco with it probably for $$$$$$; HERE THE RACE CONTEST GONNA BE PRETTY TOUGH AND MEN WILL REALLY HAVE TO PREPARE FOR THE WORST!!!......If the family is probably considering hiring a private investigation, they have a reason for that; they could be starting to loose hope of anything coming from the present investigation.

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 11:58 am ET

I still can't accept it either.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 5th, 2009 12:00 pm ET

@Linda from New York,

What do you want me to show you?
Jermaine's answer or the Andre Crouch story?

Mary Lee   August 5th, 2009 12:00 pm ET

BTW, How would anyone REALLY know what is in that complete autopsy report? There is only 1 report from the private Autopsy and I don't believe anyone would be spilling beans before the actual and official reports come in. I perfer to wait for the official cause, and what contributed to this henious crime. Anyone can speculate, but I want to know real facts.

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 12:01 pm ET

A-How do you know this?

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

No-thepart of the interview where Dileo asked-he still alive?

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 12:10 pm ET

Yes, I think DiLeo wanted to get rid of L. Rowe as well. DiLeo was hired after the AEG contract was signed, he had to confirm this himself during the interview.

Roya   August 5th, 2009 12:11 pm ET

Hi Larry
I wonder if Michael was an addict how come the doctor which was chosen by insurance compant didnt see the needle marks on his body and in his blood come Michael passed the 5 hours health exam and no one said he is an addict.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 12:12 pm ET



Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:20 pm ET

Look they cannot say Michael Jackson died of an accidental overdose if the Jackson Family autopsy proved otherwised.

And Dileo said he almost fainted when the nurse told him "he will not make it" But Michael has been dead for several hours from what is coming out now. So how is this possible with Dileo? I swear people need to get their lies straight.

Udoka Helen Chukwu   August 5th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

Perhaps,they are trying to make sure they do not give the world a false autopsy report,because Michael's death is not for American's alone for the entire world is morning him and is interested in the result and any result brought out must be accurate,for it is no child's play.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:25 pm ET


The security team in Michael Jackson has will be held responsible if the tapes do not show up by the time the investigation is complete. If it does not appear the security will be held accountable for it.

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 12:32 pm ET

But who possebly shut in Michael the demerol?Som gard?

mariau   August 5th, 2009 12:39 pm ET




Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:41 pm ET


Yes, or another member of the staff. AEG was paying them all. So anyone could have done it.

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 12:44 pm ET


Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 12:46 pm ET

Hey Jacquelyn–

Wanted to tell you that I saw Al Sharpton coming out of an office building near where I work; I went to him and thanked him for supporting Michael. He said Thank you and that he really appreciated my saying it.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Hi mariau, that is so true

carrie   August 5th, 2009 12:49 pm ET

Dileo, has confirmed that Michael didnt trust his father, or Leonard Rowe. Both Joe Jackson and Leonard Rowe strike me as two hustlers that shouldn be trusted. Joe Jackson appears evil to me. I think all that is on his mind now and then was money.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:49 pm ET

Linda from New York

Hello, you did?!!!! Sweet

mariau   August 5th, 2009 12:53 pm ET

you are so lucky you are there... i hope i can do more things if im there.
that's why i do it on my prayers.. maybe it could reach the way, Geraldo Rivera, add me in his facebook.. and good thing i can rely on him.. about Michael.

the sad things.. it's long long way to go.. and there's lots of people out there could speak lies and alibi.. i'm afraid that all Michael's employed is being disloyal and dishonest.

i guess. the best thing that i can do to Michael, just pray for him and pray that they will give justice for him.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 12:53 pm ET


Everyone in the business are hustlers and mob affliated, so.......

Michael said the same thing about Frank, that he could not be trusted and that he did not trust Frank at all.

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 12:54 pm ET

I remember MJ saying his father was a genius (in spite of their past). I don't believe what DiLeo said about MJ's views is true.

simba   August 5th, 2009 12:57 pm ET

Just heard on the news that the Jackson family has ordered a third autopsy.

It's not credible that DiLeo was the one to tell the children that their father was dead. Larry should have LaToya on to give her version of the event, which didn't include DiLeo.

MJ had a great appreciation of world religion, but as much as Jermaine may wish it to be so, there's plenty of evidence that MJ did not convert to Islam. Rabbi Schmuley Boteach was part of his inner circle for years, but he didn't convert to Judaism. Lisa Marie wanted to claim him for Scientology, but that didn't work either.

Firpo Carr says that MJ called him in and told him he wanted the kids to study the tenets of the Jehovah's Witnesses – and during the trial, he did take them with him to Kingdom Hall. Supposedly MJ wanted his children raised Catholic and even had them baptized.

See how much people loved you, Michael. Everyone wanted to claim you as their own.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 12:59 pm ET

jacquelyn.. we should be aware of that in this time global economic crisis.. some people out there could sell their souls to speak unhonest stories and could speak all lies for the sake of "MONEY'..

AT THIS TIME... we should expect that all of them will be more disloyal and dishonest to Michael.. once they open their mouth and speak.. means it's $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$..............

THE MEDIA.. IS THE SAME THING... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

so just pray that "GOOD' can still win...

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 1:00 pm ET

Jacquelyn,thann only the video could show,who did it.But even more inportant,that the police could finde and pruve,who order to doo it.

Maureen (UK)   August 5th, 2009 1:06 pm ET

Thanks Simba. Lots of people were wondering about MJ's religion.
?Third autopsy.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 1:08 pm ET

A third autopsy?!!!

Something is not right. Its more than medication then.

What the heck they did to Michael?!

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 5th, 2009 1:08 pm ET

@Linda, I can't show you something about Di Leo. The fact is, I lost track on who said what and when. Everybody is contradicting each other. It is just one pile of rubbish and literally only G'd knows what the truth is.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 1:11 pm ET

hi stu, hungary.. i just hope that the police authority are not bias.. and they are doing their jobs for the sake that or their duties and resposiblities. i just hope that the police authority has great integrity.
because if not.. it's too scary!!!


IF Dr. Murray should speak.. then... all our questions might be answered!!!



Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 1:14 pm ET

A third autopsy would be done so neither the coroner office and the Jackson family could contradict one another. Meaning One will say Michael died this way, and the other would say he did not die this way, he died that way. A third autopsy would just agree with one or the other and make it official. Therefore there would be no fighting back and forth.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 1:15 pm ET

if you don't like the mj coverage, just don't watch. i mean, change the channel! i personally am very interested in the mj coverage.

and btw, about all the comments 'nobody made him an addict, nobody put a gun to his head.' i gotta have my say on that...i was also on prescription meds and my doctor never informed me of any side effects or that i could eventually be dependant on them. he only told me, take it 3x for pain, that's it. ANYONE can get hooked on prescription meds and the fact mj was spending thousands a month tells me, none of these doctors really cared about his well being.

and you're right, nobody put a gun to my head, but the only way i became hooked was because a doctor gave them to me. and did NOT tell me what negative effects this could have.

gloria   August 5th, 2009 1:17 pm ET

I have heard so many people say different things that support what they want told. I trust no one but the family at this point. Katherine has every right in my opinion to know what is going on in her son's estate. Why would anyone want to keep her out except to cover up what is there. This is her son and she has his best interest at heart. Why should she trust anyone. Look what all of them have done to MJ.
As it is being reported that MJ was an addict, the addicts I know of and have heard about have no control in their lives. On one foot MJ was in control and on the other foot he was an addict. Can't be both. Addicts think about no one but themselves and are not in control. MJ did not do this to himself. It was done to him and someone (s) needs to be held accountable. LAPD please do all the homework and give up the truth as to what happened to MJ if you ever want to have credibility. The world needs this. Of course, I hope and wish that all of this could be a dream and that our LOVED ONE is still with us. All the different stories about what happened shows how people will lie.

Jacquelyn   August 5th, 2009 1:18 pm ET

Or. (this will be the last one) they are checking for poisoning

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 1:20 pm ET

I just woched this interwu.This guy was talk just like Randy Philips.Complitly the same.This is the storie,that AMG was make up.And this guys both said,that thay was friende of MJ....I dont belive a word.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 1:20 pm ET

SIMBA, you are right...
because Michael never put any bounderies... the culture, the religions, the beliefs.. his voice his music, ..was just voice to all nations.. without bounderies.. his legacy never spoke about religion.. Michael gave so much respect to anyone.. beyond their religions, their culture, their beliefs and tradition. without hypocity... but the sad things here.. somehow some people never heard him.. or doesn't want to listen to his voice..

think!!! why all nations around the world loves Michael... he never put bounderies himself... to anyone..

Last nite Dileo, said Michael didnt want to do business with Leonard Rowe, I cant blame him for that. His father, Joe Jackson and Loenard Rowe impress me as being two hustlers. I think they were only concerned about Michael's deal with AEG, because they would be getting any money out of the London concerts. Joe Jackson impress me as being a cold father. Leonard Rowe doesnt look like he can be trusted by his own mother (if she is deceased may she rest in peace).

If there is another Will out there, who has it and why are they not coming forward with it? How would Murray know where the security tape was? Did they check for fingerprints? Where were all the other people in the house that no one saw anything or Murray before he came screaming? He will sing like a bird before he goes down by himself. He better have a good guard watching him. No one wants him to tell the truth. It seems that a like of people have something to hide, what a shame. I now know not to trust people, when you are gone they will tell everything under the sun. No privacy. If you can learn anything from this, you better get your affairs in order.

@ Mona Fredericksburg, Virginia

I have read the Halperin book. All he does is repeating other books and he just added 4 or 5 pages on the gay issue. It is basically more of the same.

One point about Las Vegas I can say. In one of LKL's shows, I think it was Jermaine himself, said Janet visited MJ in Las Vegas. She was shocked when she saw the house. It was almost empty without some of the basic necessary things. She then warned 2 of her other brothers and they all went together but were not permitted a visit. They asked themselves who was to blame for this.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 1:34 pm ET

WHAT?? someone called mj a racist for not having kids with african american women? well neither did quincy jones!! neither did wesley snipes (he married a korean woman) diana ross also married a white man!! halle berry had a baby with a white man!! neither did tiki barber! neither did alfonso ribeiro!!

madonna, brad and angelina, woody allen, mia farrow have all adopted kids of other races. jeb bush married a hispanic woman and has a family with her.

whoever said're beyond ignorant. i'm also a mixed person who's half white and half korean. you can marry and have a family outside your own race, there's nothing wrong with that.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

jacquelyn, no he didn't. believe it or not, doctors are not required to tell you of any side effects or what dangers this drug has, unless the fda has a recall or something.

that's what i'm trying to stress to everyone out there...when celebs die of overdoses like this, they're taking meds prescribed by a doctor, right? that also means these doctors aren't telling them of any adverse effects. and lots of times these meds aren't well known to the public and just have some fancy long medical name. so most people, have never heard of these drugs, so when you take them, you think it's helping you.

i was only on them for 2 weeks and had enough. it conked me out in less than 5 min. and i'd be asleep for 12 hours straight. i also didn't like that i thought i 'needed' them. and i'm not a millionaire, i'm not a celeb, i'm a reg. person like anyone else. and i'm here to say, what happened to mj being hooked, can happen to anyone.

mariau   August 5th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

stu, yes.. if he is not guilty.. why not? if his conscience is clear.. then Dr. murray can speak and stand.. but Dr. murray. is obviously guilty in so many ways.. and people were'nt blind to see that everythings wrong? esp. Joe jackson.. as i said.. "FAther instincts"..

Ofcorse,he was scared.Probebly he thod,he cilled Michael exidently.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

not only that, but my doctor had me on 2 different medications at the same time. one was vicatin and another one i don't even remember the long medical name. and with michael on so many different meds, i'm just shocked that these doctors didn't put a stop to it. granted i never met mj, but i highly doubt he really needed many different meds all at once.

but these doctors convince you you need them, so when you take them in the beginning, you think there's nothing bad about them. it took about 3 days for my body to really be 'dependant' on i felt like i needed them to go to sleep. i'd wake up with very hot flashes and very cold flashes and after taking the meds, it seemed like it took forever to get to my bed.

so i can speak on firsthand experience, that we need more public awareness on prescription meds and we need to prosecute and put these greedy doctors in prison. they're not looking out for their patient's welfare.

Stu,Hungary   August 5th, 2009 2:09 pm ET

I think in USA the hole helth sistem with everithing in it is just BAD!

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 2:18 pm ET

granted, no doctor made millions off of me, but it still scares me even today how much i 'needed' these meds. i haven't been on them in about 4 years now.

so everyone, put yourself in michael's shoes, those doctors had him on many different meds and all at once. if two meds can make a person dependant, try 10? 15? 25? i don't think many people even can fathom how many different medications there are and how strong they can be.

so, i don't really blame michael for being dependant and it has nothing to do with me liking him as an entertainer. he became an addict thru his doctors who were obviously over-prescribing him and we need to prosecute 'doctors' like that.

Shelby67   August 5th, 2009 2:22 pm ET

If diprovan does not stay in the system long, then how can a tox report show it? and how can they prove it was there to the degree of a lethal dose? If MJ was in danger from the time the chef really believes MJ Dr. M not coming down stairs first thing, then the diprovan would be plenty long gone by the time the coroner got ahold of him. I bet they won't be able to determine cause of death. I bet they blame years of drug abuse....which will be another horrible accusation.
I thought the look on Jim Morey's face was priceless. MJ IS INNOCENT AND YOU NOW KNOW IT!!!!

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 2:39 pm ET

mariau and lex, that's what i'm saying. i had no idea how strong these meds were when i was taking them. i just knew them by the long medical names and took them without even thinking about it. i was following doctor's orders.

i don't think my doctor wanted me to be an addict, but either he didn't know or just didn't bother to tell me how strong these two medications. i was under the impression (i slipped and fell and fractured a small bone in my back) that they were painkillers (which is all my doctor told me). i do remember one bottle of pills being around $60! i dont' know if he got any money off of that, but he wanted me to come in every 2 weeks for a fresh refill. after two weeks, i just didn't like how i was acting. my mom would tell me how long i'd be asleep and it scared the hell outta me. i mean, i was knocked out cold! i never woke up in between like most normal people would.

Edie   August 5th, 2009 2:45 pm ET

The LAPD want to get this right! Since that OJ killer got off, I believe the police really want to make sure a possible manslaughter accusation can hold weight in court. I don't believe Michael was murdered. No one can possibly believe that, but Dr. Conrad Murray and other doctors have to be accountable for the escalation of MJ's addiction. Michael Jackson also must hold responsibility for his addiction. As much of a fan as I am of Michael Jackson's talent, he wanted the drugs and was willing to do whatever it took to get them.
Joe Jackson and that Leonard Rowe crackpot finacier on Larry the other night are criminal and Rowe has the background to prove it!
Let's wait and see what the report holds because this thing is going to go on FOREVER! I just want what is best for the Jackson children who are left behind...they are the ONLY ones that matter.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 2:49 pm ET

lex, what usually happens, in mj's case, these doctors 'referred' him to other specialists. when a doctor writes a prescription, i'm pretty sure he gets paid somehow from that.

doctors were probably flocking around michael cuz he's so rich. now granted, i'm not saying he was always in perfect health, but nobody's gonna convince me michael jackson needed many different pills every single day to function in his every day life.

true #1mjfan these doctors jus want money and 2 insert thmselves in celebritys lives

Lori   August 5th, 2009 2:54 pm ET

The rumor of a 3rd autopsy, could be just that a rumor. OR it could be true. Always good to have multiple opinions. Also so much more has come out that there may be new things that need to be looked for specifically that were not looked for during the first 2 autopsies.

Maybe it is even possible that Michael died from natural causes, as he was rumored to be ill. He suffered from lupus which affects the heart and joints. Maybe he had a medical team that was providing him with care because MJ knew he was terminal and was trying to hang on for as along as possible. Maybe it was an OD, either accidental or intentional. Or maybe it was a conspiricy. There is just so much information that is contradictory.

I understand the Jackson family. They want, and deserve, answers. And I hope that they get them, because it is very difficult to move forward after the death of a family member if there are no answers.

Michael was a great celebrity, an amazing and gifted entertainer, BUT at the heart of this, he was a man who had a family and children all of whom loved him very, very much. They are the ones entitled to answers, they are the ones that need the most accurate information, and they are the ones we should be supporting.

Edie   August 5th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

Don't forget people...Leonard Rowe has a big criminal background. The fact that Joe Jackson is associated with him is no surprise!!

Lisa S   August 5th, 2009 3:05 pm ET

Lots of strange things is being said in this forum 😀

I read somewhere, dont know in which thread, that only a white woman could sell her children. Which of course also is racistic as whether you are prepared to sell your children or not does not depend on your skin colour.

People referred to the slavery but there has been slaves of whites as well. And there have been blacks that come from countries that have not had a slave system so it depends on culture, money need, values, who asks and a lot of other things weather you would be prepared to sell your child or not. Same goes with who would be prepared to buy a child, that does not depend on your skin colour either.

Lynn   August 5th, 2009 3:06 pm ET

Hi Everybody

No1MJ fan,

I was reading thru your story and as an RN I have a few comments re pain medication.

Heres the thing pain sucks and most non narcotic pain meds (IE tylenol, ibupropen ) just dont work well enough. Its really a problem for a lot of people.

If a person is left with bad pain that is not controlled alot of people dont realize that it has other adverse effects on your body. A person experiencing severe pain will have raised blood pressure, sometimes heart rate too and they are very anxious, loss of appetite etc.

I worked for 7 years in home health and hospice and delt alot with people coming home from the hospital on narcotic pain meds. Sometimes for acute pain (pain that will eventually get less like a total knee replacement) and sometimes for chronic pain (thats pain that will always be there and maybe get worse like somone with terminal cancer)

With acute pain, intake of pain meds should be closely monitored and not to many prescribed at one time. We used to have people who were taking 2 vicodin every 4 hours start to cut back to 1 every 4 hours as the pain should be getting less, then have them go to 1 vicodin and then 4 hours later 2 tylenol, then another Vicodin 4 hours after that. gradually taking more tylenol and less Vicodin.

In MJs case, he may have had more chronic pain at least early on with the burns and skin grafts. Burns are REAL painfull but he should have been taught some of these methods and it doesn't seem his Drs or nurses took the time to go over these things with him.

Lola   August 5th, 2009 3:08 pm ET

I did feel the Jackson family must have gotten back information from the autopsy which is the reason they are now switching their story from believing Murray was guilty to now saying murray has been "framed". Now they are blaming AEG. What is really behind their change of heart? Money? Hard to trust Katherine Jackson when she she claims "all those rumors of Joe hitting the children is all lies", when it was Michael who claimed it to be true, not the press. She should go back and familiarize herself with several of Mjs interviews where he was explicit about his beatings from Joe.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

exactly! doctors can be greedy too. doctors can be addicts themselves and need to feed their own habits.

but i don't buy for one second that celebs become addicts all on their own. someone gave them this pill and then more pills. when your body has bad reactions to these pills (like i did with bad fevers and cold spells) then the doctor will prescribe another pill for that other ailment.

so most times, it's not the patient really needing these different meds, it could also be they're having bad side effects to initial meds and the doctors are convincing them they need even more meds. to combat each and every ailment.

Donna   August 5th, 2009 3:16 pm ET

The room was so hot because Michael died long before 911 was called. Dr. Murray was trying to keep the body from cooling, so the time of death could be altered.

Michael may have been using Demerol and Oxycontin for pain, but I don't think he was abusing it. Not to say he hadn't on occasion taken too much, but I doubt it was constantly abused.

As far as I can find, they have not stated what the dates on the prescriptions were or the dosage. I can't find the list now, but I don't know what some of that stuff was even for.

Michael had a history of hoarding things he thought he would need. It is quite possible that he wanted to have a couple months supply laid in, not that he was taking that much of anything.

And by the way, who are all these people who are saying that Michael took 30-40 Zanex a night? Are they the same people who 'saw' him molesting children? Why wait weeks to come forward with information like that? For the paid interviews?

Lynn   August 5th, 2009 3:19 pm ET

Thre are alot of bad Drs out there and they do exactly what you said in your last post. Add a new pill to counteract side effects of the last pill they added. I left nursing 1 1/2 years ago because it really is disgusting some of what they do. I had patients taking so many pills every morning that they could fill a shot glass with them!!

N-Y post:

" Well-known pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht, who has no connection to Jackson's case, said he sympathized with the family, but insisted that no new autopsy will yield different results.

"This is nonsense," Wecht said. "There's no more bodily fluid, no urine, no blood, no bile. The organs and tissue are in formula. There's going to be nothing new that can be gleaned from the body."

The third autopsy will be conducted before this weekend, at another location outside the coroner's office, sources said."

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 3:26 pm ET

thanks linda! there's nothing wrong with having kids with someone outside your race and nothing wrong with adopting kids of another race. michael was a terrific parent, i mean, why can't the haters get that? they loved their dad and didn't care what he looked like to everyone else. and vice versa, mike didn't care what his kids looked like he loved them unconditionally.

i'm suprrised bill oreily didn't go off on sarah jessica parker for also using a surrogate and demanding to know the identity and ethnicity of that woman. i mean, sarah is jewish right? did oreilly check to make sure that surrogate was also jewish?

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:28 pm ET

Hi Everyone!! I'm only on for a few minutes,but I still have this same gruelling question.......WHAT ABOUT THE 5 FRESH INJECTION MARKS ON MICHAELS NECK? And on ET last nite, Marcia Clark said that the death bed scene was too clean. She said when paramedics come in, there is stuff flying everywhere, and they dont take the time to tidy up before they leave. Also was reported that the family had learned of the autopsy results, and they were crying and sickened. I dont know which result it was, I only caught the tail end. This is probably why the family hasnt buried him yet, incase this would happen. The only people I trust at this time is MJs family{ and dont yell at me, but that includes Joe}. If anyone watches the Oxford speach, I think you would go a little easier on Joe too.

Jacquelyn, I'm surprised you were up this early. I slept till noon. I cant believe my kids let me.

Linda NY, thanks for telling Jacquelyn about Carrie. I was catching up and saw them commenting, and was going to say something, but you beat me to it. Funny how she is acting like she cares about him today.

I did finally watch the Oxford speech last night. I could not believe how intelligent Michael was. I didnt know what half the words he used meant. This was not a guy that could have made all of these so-called bad decisions, they were made for him.
Jacquelyn and Linda and Lori, did you all read the phychiatrists story I posted yesterday? I wonder when he will surface. Michael needs him more than ever right now. But I wonder if he is on the families team and just waiting.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 3:33 pm ET

i also remember about mid week after being on those meds, one time after i swallowed them with water of seemed like i was starting to fall asleep right there in the kitchen. i still remember the 'effort' it took for me to go to my bedroom and i lived in a 1 bd. apt. back then. i crashed right on the bed, didn't change clothes or nothing. that's how fast i went to sleep. and i also woke up with a very bad headache and within a min. i had a cold spell then a hot spell (it would also swich sometimes) and that i was still tired. then my mom would tell me i was out for 12 hours.

Something is definately wrong now to warrant a 3rd exam,

As for Dileo...Of course he is going to say anything he feels is 'the truth, according to him'. He wants to discredit Joe and Roe...I don't ever remember any wrongful mishandling of finances when Papa Joe was managing their careers, nor when J5 was with Barry Gordy, not on such a grand scale! - $100,000 on meds is outrageous! Someone else was ordering those drugs and someone was picking up those drugs-Can you honestly imagine Michael waltzing into a drug store? No. Hollywood is a very strange place. You can get anything you like, but the way his handlers were abusing him by using him in whatever capacity, his doctors as well. Soemone calls up the Dr. and says Michael ran out of so and so, then it's filled, unbeknownest to Michael.

It is sad this has turned so criminally insane! Sad too another exam is going to get under way...At least his soul is resting, but when are they going to lay him to rest completely once and for all....Just angers me to no end!

I dont know any woman eihter 🙂 I cant say I know Debbie Rowe, but if you count her she is the only one I know about.

This whole thing is a very special case. Both waht Michael and Debbie Rowe (and Klein) did was very unique and quite questionable. Especially now when we see that the ones in the middle are the children.

So I think that, refering to a special group in society that would be more likely to be part of such a deal is not possible.

Jeremy   August 5th, 2009 3:38 pm ET

It wasn't just Michael who admitted Joe abused them during their childhood. Didn't Jermaine produce the movie about the Jacksons life? I remember there being scenes of both the children and Katherine being beaten by Joe. I doubt Jermaine would have put that in if he knew it wasn't true. I'm sure Joe was the type of man who, after being verbally and/or physically abusive, would apologize with the "you know i love you" crap and expect all to be forgiven/forgotten. I know I wasn't there, but I believe Michael and the others. You can see many pictures and footage of Michael as a child and there's a deep sadness in his eyes. Abuse in childhood stays with you throughout your life, and maybe one day Joe will feel some guilt about how hard he was on those kids. It's one thing to motivate and encourage children when you see natural talent in them. And the Jacksons did genuinely all love singing, dancing, performing, etc. However, it's an entirely different thing to deprive them of childhoods because you know they are your meal ticket out of the factory. That man is all about the $$$ and I cringe every time I see him on tv.

I dont know any WHITE woman eihter 😀 I cant say I know Debbie Rowe, but if you count her she is the only one I know about.

Sorry, missed a word

Joyous66   August 5th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

I like to make a comment about who told MJ children – When they where at the hospital – jackie took them in to see their father dead

of course he been dead for hours – like most people are saying he was dead from 8 AM LA time – but Dr. Murray did not want to say that – he left MJ in his bed and when out of the room and MJ pass on – but when he came Dr. Murray came back in the room – he said he throught MJ was alsleep but you all know that if he empty the bag of IV.

I don't think the Jackson should let anyone know where Michael is going to be bury – its just the family.

and The children should be left alone – that have a lot of sorry to deal with – just let them alone – and if they decide to go into showbiz then – you can talk about them – but not until that.

I know burn are real painful – in 1996 I burn my right leg above my ankle on a motorcycle – and it did not heal for 4 years – so I know about pain – MJ if I had the money I would of probably been on something stronger also.

and I would like to know how the Sun and UK magazine know more about Michael then we do – can anyone answer that question?

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 3:41 pm ET


Oh I forgot to mention–I was told carrie to take a look at Blanket and tell me again how MJ was a racist.

Luda   August 5th, 2009 3:41 pm ET

lex   August 5th, 2009 3:44 pm ET

i think wen the tox and autopsy reports come out its gonna say 1. mj died of natural cause or 2. an accidental o.d....i hope i'm wrong but somebody needs 2 speak up about wat really happened in dat house frm the time mj got home frm the time(which is realluly unknown) dat he died

and has nanny grace spoke out since the death

Lynn   August 5th, 2009 3:46 pm ET

Why is there a third autopsy? Are the first two conflicting or inconclusive?

Luda   August 5th, 2009 3:47 pm ET

It will be: MJ is an addict and Murray made a big mistake.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 3:48 pm ET

I don't understand how Michael could be doing anything if he was as medicated as some sources were claiming.

I don't know much about these kind of productions, but is it usual to film 100 + hours of rehersal footage? Was there always some plan that they were going to release it?

And where is everyone from the show now? Why can't they talk? If the show was canceled why do they have to honor a confidentiallity agreement? Are they still being paid?

Honorine   August 5th, 2009 3:49 pm ET

Third autopsy? What?

I tell u no one is to be trusted at this point. This is ridiculous. There is so much room for games here.

This is what i think, now they've already come to a conclusion and are looking for evidence to back it up. Coz i don't see what(new) a third autopsy will bring. Fishy, fishy, fishy. Gosh, this hurts!!!!!!!!!

Toni   August 5th, 2009 3:49 pm ET

Man, all of this is making my head spin. Fist of all, for everyone that hates Joe about the abuse, needs to watch 3 and 4 of the Oxford speech by Michael.
And there is no way that Michael could be taking that many drugs a day and still function to take care of his children. And NO ONE has come forward calling hima bad dad. Instead, they all say he was a hands on dad and took care of the children himself. I think alot of his staff was supporting their own drug habits or selling them { do you realize how much you can get for demerol on the street}? Michael had staff to get his meds. He did not sit down like us and go through his own bills and balance his ck book. I also believe he had no idea that a bill of $100,000 was owed by him. And I do not think he himself would have used Prince and Omars names to get the drugs.
Even IF the autopsy report shows OD, there are still too many unanswered questions to the story.
And if Murray was framed, he STILL administered the Diprivan, didnt call 911, CALLED PRINCE for Gods sake, did CPR on the bed etc.
Well my heads spinning, so I'll stop and catch my bearings again.

Luda   August 5th, 2009 3:49 pm ET

Lynn, here's what the New-York Post say:

""Katherine Jackson looked at the results of the second autopsy, and she wasn't happy with what it did not reveal to her," a family source said, adding that the heartbroken mom is willing to hire even a fourth or fifth pathologist until she gets her desired result.

But there still is the possibility of a manslaughter charge based on negligence."

Lisa S   August 5th, 2009 3:52 pm ET


Yes she has. You can read it on Malika Chopras blog.

Joyous66   August 5th, 2009 3:53 pm ET

Good job Bill Clinton for getting those 2 girl free from North Korea- its pretty funny why Bill had to do that – but nice job any way

Luda   August 5th, 2009 3:54 pm ET

Toni, or those who made the cover up succeeded...

Dana   August 5th, 2009 3:56 pm ET

I don't know why they are holding off on the autopsy unless they want to make sure of everything before the make any charges.\
I would like everyone to look at dr, Klein and than look at prince Michael the oldest child and tell me you do not see a strong resemblence? i mean a strong one. I think the family should order a DNA thru the court for Dr. Klein and if it comes back that he is the biological father than right at that moment i would tell my attorneys and go to court to stop any further payments to Debbie Rowe. I have believed from the beginning that she and Dr. Klein planned this form the very start she was in a 1 bedroom apt in Van Nuys and working as a receptionist (Not a Nurse as it was first told). Saw a way to extort money so she wouldn't have to work anymore, so her and the dr.
divised a plan to push her way into Michaels life, talk him into merrying her as she knew what she could get being married to him, convienced Used the Dr's sperm, convenienced Michael they were his kids, and made sure she was set the rest of her life, I guess its a good extortion plan if you can get it.

Lori   August 5th, 2009 3:56 pm ET

Until we hear anything from an offical named source such as, Katherine and Joe JAckson request a third autopsy, or the LA Coroner's office is releasing information, then I am not going to rely on published reports from unidentified sources. Because we all know the make mistakes and are often wrong or misleading.

And maybe, just maybe Michael slipped away from natural causes. But I think that is doubtful since law enforcement has been looking for propofol.

So many many unanswered questions.

Annette   August 5th, 2009 3:57 pm ET

As much as I want Michael to be buried and for his kids to not have to see all the "deathbed photos" and inevitable tabloid trash, this isn't just "a celebrity overdosed" a la Heath Ledger. For a supposed "medical professional" to have obtained and administered a medicine he knew was extremely dangerous and never to be used as a sleep aid, no I don't think he should get away with it. Yes, Michael bears some responsibility, of course, but if hadn't been given Propofol I think he would still be here. I think his biggest fault was trusting someone he thought cared about him and was there to help him with his pain and insomnia. Dr. Murray knew Michael was being overmedicated and could have denied him as other doctors did. This man was so greedy and desperate for money that he would risk a patient and supposed friend's life so he wouldn't lose his mansion. I would also like to know who initially put the idea into Michael's head that Propofol/Diprivan was an option for a sleep aid, because that person should be held accountable as well. Michael is gone, but if there is any positive to come out of his death hopefully these shady doctors won't get away with negligence and "anything for money" practices anymore. I still believe Michael was dead long before Dr. Murray called 911. I think he panicked after he realized he couldn't revive Michael and called those women to remove stuff from that storage building in Houston that he knew would incriminate him. I wouldn't doubt this man was feeding many celebrity addictions without a second thought.

Gloria   August 5th, 2009 3:58 pm ET

If KJ doesn't like what the autopsies are indicating, then it must be that "they" are trying to blame MJ for overdosing.... if this happens, will just cry. You can cover things up when you have big money like Sony/AEG spreading money around to the police department as donations....
I see that NY Post quotes Dr. Wecht...(he is from Pittsburgh, were I am from also).....
I really hope that someone is held responsible for MJ's untimely death, but it is beginning to look to me that this was all too nicely staged... and lindafromNewYork is totally correct....

Honorine   August 5th, 2009 3:59 pm ET

Something smells and i dont like that smell.

I wonder what it is they are looking for at this point. My patience was on it's way out the door, but i caught it and i 'm still here. I just want to know what, when, how and why? I strongly believe Murray knows the correct answers to these. But would he even say the truth? Anyway, i beleive he won't even speak since he is under investigation.

I cant believe these people who surrounded MJ b4 his death. Nothing seems to correlate. It's like anybody is saying what will make them look good in the public's eye. This is getting way odd than i thought but i'm still here.

Lynn   August 5th, 2009 4:00 pm ET

That SOB Murray-

Looks like he is getting exactly what he planned. For a Dr who is stupid?! enough to give the kinds of meds he was giving(diprovan) in a home environment without any pluse ox, EKG monitor , end tital CO2 monitor he sure was smart enough to cover his tracks!!!

He wasnt to stupid to wait long enough to call 911(so diprovan could leave blood stream), kill more time even when paramedics came,(to make sure diprovan was cleared enough to at least cause autopsy confussion)) turn on heat and probably cover with a bunch of blankets(to throw off time of death) not allow paramedics to pronounce dead or pronounce himself at home(to make sure the area was not sealed off as a crime scene).

He was anything but stupid!!

Dana   August 5th, 2009 4:02 pm ET

Well, that Delio character should but out of this whole thing he doesn't care about mIchael, the children, or the jackson family. He is a criminal thats probably why Michael fired him. I have 3 words for Mr. Delio....GO CHASE YOURSELF

Toni   August 5th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

The phychiatrist is"Jackson on verge of breakdownbefore death".

Hopefully its still there. Its VERY interesting!!

And just a thought, but This is 'Michael Jackson", no matter what anyone of the media say, do you honestly think his family is stupid enough to tell us exactly where he is buried? I think and I hope { for Michaels sake} that it is truely never revieled. But they have to SAY somewhere. I think that is why they have all juggled around the question. To protect his body { how sick} I dont believe the public will ever know. But i'm ok with it because hes here in my heart.

Toni   August 5th, 2009 4:16 pm ET

Michele Canada
With all due respect, I have been reading your comments for a long time now, and I find it very hard to believe that you " love" the Jacksons. This woman is going through pur hell at the moment. This is her son for Gods sake. There is nobody on this earth other than Michael himself, that knew him better than she did. And I definately believe in motherly instinct. So if she thinks something is wrong, then , I , personally am going to back her on that. From the first comment I read from you, you have havent had many nice things to say about Michael or the Jacksons. So ,no, I dont know that you "love" the Jacksons. Your opinion is your own, just like mine is, but you kind of send mixed messages.

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

Why in the HELL do you keep bringing up the kids? Thats ALL you ever comment about! Yesterday Michael was a racist because he only had white children, Michael bleached his skin to be white, and today you're back at it with Blanket. God, leave the children alone for Gods sake!! They are Michaels children!!!!!

And Linda has just as much right {or more} to be on here as you do! We are sick to death of hearing about the DNA of the children. It is none of our business.

Charlena   August 5th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

Leonard Rowe is not criminal. He does have a judgement against but that does not make him a criminal. Rowe has been a friend of the family since they were the Jackson 5 and has worked successfully with Michael in the past. Both he and Joe may not be able to smooth-talk like Dileo and the others but that doesn't mean they weren't right about how Michael was being controlled.

Folks keep beating this dead horse about Joe but Michael forgave his dad years ago and said his dad is a much nicer man now. Michael didn't stay stuck in the past but some fans are when all they are doing is allowing the media to hype them up against Joe since they don't have Michael to kick around anymore.

Dilieo wants to discredit Joe and Rowe so they won't be taken seriously. The truth will prevail!!

Linda from New York   August 5th, 2009 4:33 pm ET

By the way, Just so you know I have my own business which is doing very well, not that it is any of your concern. Right now, I am sitting on the beach in Aruba-Hmmmmm–what are you doing?

Lynn   August 5th, 2009 4:39 pm ET

Just a thought about the drugs,

Diprovan is general anesthesia. When you are asleep with it , a surgeon can cut you open and you feel nothing. How easy would it be for Murray or anybody else to give MJ durg injections (demerol etc) without him ever knowing it??

MJ might not have even had a clue he was on as many drugs as he was!! Very possible.

Murray turned up the heat so Michael's body would stay warm.

Find a picture of Prince (the oldest son) smiling. Those are the Jackson cheekbones. And I can't see a bit of resemblnce to Klein. I do not for one minute think that those are not Michael's biological children.

When the private autotopsy results came back, LaToya stated Michael had been murdered, and that his fans were going to be shocked at the results. I'm not sure what she means by the second remark, but I truly think he was murdered, if not intentionally, then by gross negligence.

#1mjfan   August 5th, 2009 5:25 pm ET

well carrie if you can read this....are you a republican? you do know jeb bush married a hispanic woman and has kids with her? there's lots of white people that marry outside their race and have kids that don't look like them. and also adopt of other races like madonna and angelina jolie.

so if a black man wants to do the same, there's something wrong with that? what should matter if you're a mature adult was how he took care of his kids and loved them unconditionally. from what i see, he was a terrific father. and that's all that matters to me. i could care less if he's the bio dad or not.

Luda   August 5th, 2009 5:28 pm ET

But, you know, even if Mike was addicted, it is still a crime that a doctor give propofol in a home to his patient… that’s the thing that bothers me. They cannot let Murray go with that!
A stop must be put to all that abuse. Michael is not the first one and if nothing else is done there will be other death…. And if the death of Michael Jackson doesn’t change anything… I mean, what will it take?? If this man is not known enough to ring a bell, who you will?

Luda   August 5th, 2009 5:34 pm ET

After reading the article (psychiatrist) I believe it’s not normal that they noticed Mike was not well, was having a breakdown and they pushed him ahead anyway! It’s a crime. I’ve known people who had a breakdown and when we see that there’s something wrong we try to help, we do something about it! We don't deny it!
Those people are responsable too.

It’s like Michael said: “they don’t really care about us”

Mary Lee   August 5th, 2009 6:07 pm ET

Michael is finally going to be buried either today or tomorrow at Forrest Lawn Hollywood Hills...Guess I'll take a drive...Finally at least he is finally laid to rest

glow   August 5th, 2009 6:17 pm ET


I agree with you on the plot to extort money from MJ. Dr. Klein seems to be right in the middle of it. I do not exclude Debbie's role either. They all seemed to have had a role of getting money from MJ. This is so sad. Then people want to look at the family, Why? They did nothing to MJ. LaToya did right to go get MJ's things, she is family. Would you have wanted other people to take his things. Leave the family alone, they are not telling lies, but his friends are. Look at all the different stories friends are telling. Trust none of them. CONSPIRACY, CONSPIRACY, CONSPIRACY.

gloria   August 5th, 2009 6:32 pm ET

im a freind of tookie well frank as u know him and he is a great man and i missed his interview how can i see it? is larry going to re air it on the show or can i see it on here some how thank you for ur help

Donna   August 5th, 2009 6:57 pm ET

I know, LaToya is a flake, and she always recants her story. But Joe Jackson said pretty much the same thing on the same week. I think the interview was with the Daily Mail. But still, the family had gotten the results back, so I think she is probably on target with what she said.

The only reason they could be holding the report is because of the criminal investigation, but that is supposed to be independent of any legal issue.

Maybe they are afraid that Conrad Murray will get lynched in a massive riot?

And the only thing I can find about a third autotopsy is in foreign news, saying Joe Jackson wants another one.

Gena   August 5th, 2009 7:01 pm ET

You must be loosing viewers. I do not want a daily update on Michael Jackson investigation or sensationalism. I admired the talent of Michael Jackson. His death was sad. However, I feel Larry's show is degenerating to the level of Nancy Grace, which I always shut off. You used to have a more interesting program covering issues, not tabloid journalism. I've quit watching your program after many years, sorry to say.

Michelle Thomas   August 5th, 2009 7:47 pm ET

frank what happened to michael? one min he's great and the next minute dead. It just doesnt make sense. This is Michael Jackson we have to know the truth for his sake.

Mary Lee   August 5th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

Gloria...It was on the actual news, not a media tabloid show. the family signed the final papers today. I suspect all the reports are in of course, I said in another blog in here...if they do 1 3rd autopsy, it'll be to go over all the reports...There probably is a discrepancy between the 2 of them...
I went past Forrest Lawn a bit ago, and it looks like media campland again..Will try for in the family there so I am 'allowed' to go and visit....They could possibly do a quiet burial is time for the family to have healing time now and be quiet with their thoughts-Wayy too much has happened to them too soon-We should all respect that, right 🙂

carrie from SF Bay, CAlifornia   August 5th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Michael sadly was a drug addict, who didnt want to be black. Yes I said it and will say it again. PLEASE people stop drinking the Kool-aid. You Kool-aid drinkers will believe anything your master tells you. In this case your master is Michael Jackson. I see other people ie, Jolie-Pitts, Tom Cruise & Nichole Kidman are white but they have asian, black and white. Now that is a true blended family. Not MJ and his crew of all white children (except for Blanket) . BLANKET LOOKS JUST LIKE MIKKO BRANDO.

Helen Sanders   August 5th, 2009 8:59 pm ET

Mary Lee   August 5th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Whoa...Excuse me Carrie from SF Bay....
Please do not attack these nice people here and be so callous in your opinion. Not too well edjucated I can see. He was a very proud Black man (I hate Labels) who has a serious a verified skin condition, you nitwit. He had no other choice but to go white, easier and less painful-Shoot...his death cert does in fact say black so what's the problem?
He might have been dependant on some drugs, does not make him a full blown drug user. Take into account, he danced all his life, he is 50, he had some pretty nasty things happen in his life, he probably has a bit of arthritis, ...He is at peace now.STOP abusing him like this, please! He had enough of that in life, let's not carry it over to his passing.
you don't know, you were not in his circle, don't judge! If 1/10 of what happened to him happened to me, I'd have taken a dirt nap a long time ago.

Oh Yeah, Almost forgot...Chief Bratton resigned to take another position with another company-I almost p ed my pants when the Mayor of L.A. was on the news today! Cripes! Bratton will stay until the end of the month, but damned! sort of strange this came about all of a sudden...I'm highly suspicious now if this has anything to do with this investigation...

Hi Linda – Jaquelyn

Wow it's been a busy day on here. Took me a minute to read and catch up with everything. Headed over to the new blog to catch up.

patty   August 5th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Dr Murray put him under and fell asleep and did not monitor Michael and thats why he panicked. He didn't stay awake to monitor him for the eight hours , he dozed off.

mark fox   August 5th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Mark Fox here again, responding to someone who posted they couldn't hear my song 'St. Michael" – about the MURDER of Michael Jackson, on myspace.

Michael was MURDERED, and I'm looking to hook up with people who believe the same, are resultantly very angry, and are willing to do something about it!

Help me try to expose this Diprivan/Manslaughter coverup, that is being pulled over our all too unsuspecting eyes ! ! !

Hello fellow fans. Just got home from work. I missed all thenews today due to a 12 hour shift. Is it true ther is a 3rd autopsy ordered. They can still find things even though there is no body fluids.. The bones and skin tissue can tell alot. That might be part of why he isn't buried yet. Is the family really going to bury him in the next couple days. Poor Micheal. I'm so afraid the police are not going to do justice by him. There's gotta be a way us fans can make sure they do. I've been reading over all the blogs from tonight. All u fans rock!!! As for people like Carrie, get a life!!! You have no idea what Micheal was all about. He was proud to be a black man,but very embarrasssed by his disease. Leave Micheals children alone. They are his children whether by blood or not it's no one's buisness but Micheals he loved those children with everything he had. Can anyone tell me where I can read the psychiatric report? Lets keep this up fans.. Like I said a couple weeks ago on here, maybe us fans can be the voice for Micheal

cjl   August 5th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

Nicole s. I read your comment. now you need to re-read your comment. what do you think is wrong with this picture? There are too many inconsistencies in the news of Michael Jacksons DEATH! I dont know what you do for a living, but i am in criminal investigations, and with all my findings in this, it all adds up to..................MJ is indeed NOT DEAD! I stand firm on my findings. And I wont back down from my discovery. end. cjl

cjl   August 5th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Mary Lee! I was so happy to read your comment! Chief William Bratton is one of thee best in the world! I have done alot of research on him, and when I heard the news of him resigning, only one reason why he would do this! First everyone needs to see that Bratton is not Corrupt, he is honest, true, and one of the greatest that we will ever see in our time. Now if he saw something that was wrong, dis-honest or if he was put into a position and expected of to cover up something, he would immediately bow out gracefully. And that is exactly why he is leaving. He wants no part of the Michael Jackson Investigation. Because MJ is indeed not dead. And Bratton I predicted would resign, right before the so called autopsy results were to be announced. He wants nothing to do with this HOAX! Thank you for pointing this out, now if everyone else would just realize...................Michael Jackson is not DEAD! END. FINISHED. DONE. I REST MY CASE! cjl

Patty Anderson   August 5th, 2009 11:40 pm ET

cjl. Ok if he is not dead, then give us proof where is he. Why does his mothe get custody if he is alive. So are you saying with Bratton resighning we won't get the truth? They are cops they can't do something like that. Do they realize the uproar they will get from people all around the world and what they might cause by being dishonest? Why don't you go uncover for the family and get to the truth

Mary Lee   August 6th, 2009 12:05 am ET

cjl...Ya almost had me, until you said Michael is not dead...It's sad but true, he did pass away. Do you honestly think the Court, cops, DEA, FBI, Medical Examiner would go through all this for a lame cover up to maybe send him – to Aruba? (LOL-Linda would like that 🙂 ) Hardly doubt it. Lets' not forget the Sheriffs Heliocopter that transported him to Coroners....that takes a LOT of money, oh and lets not forget that $25,000 casket and $3800 worth of flower for the top.. I don't believe anyone would throw that kind of money out the window on a scam...I know, nobody wants to believe it, but he's gone to the a greater plain, never to be hurt to his face again.

Update is now Bratton will not leave until October...Hope he is still there when all this gets straightened out and certain people are called to justice. It does seem funny that everytime there is some high profile issue in L.A. , a fire captain leaves, or the police chief leaves...He is no nonsense and if something or somebody told him to say so an so...he would leave because to argue would do no good, they'd put him up on some trumped up charges....

mark fox   August 6th, 2009 12:09 am ET

To 'Dom from UK' ;

I also do not believe...

Mark Fox

Mary Lee   August 6th, 2009 12:11 am ET

Oh Linda...about the phone number....Yep...Michael's number was in fact listed for his leased home in Vegas-I just about passed out when I saw it listed! Hmmmm....too bad we didn't know back when, right? Joe Jackson is also phone away...if he hasn't changed it by now, which I'm sure he would not...he loves the attention 🙂

Jacquelyn   August 6th, 2009 12:20 am ET

Mary Lee

Joe Jackson number really? Where?

cjl   August 6th, 2009 12:44 am ET

mary lee,do u work at the coroners office too? at north mission road?

Mary Lee   August 6th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Is there a way to get a hold of you privately? Dont want to say it on here...

cjl...I don't have to work at the Coroners Office....but I do have common sense and above grade intellegence, besides, i know people, lots of people...Why do I get the feeling you are from the Bay area?

Courtney   August 6th, 2009 1:00 am ET

What is holding the autopsy results back is the corner I don't think they want to make a mistake they want to make sure they dotted all the i’s and crossed all the T'z because one mistake could cause the trial to go up in flames and who would AMERICA blame the corner so chill people it's going to come do you want results that are accurate or results that are rushed and throwin together think about it. Because if we take the results that are not done we won't get the outcome we to prosecute Murray for what he did to the King of Pop.

Mary Lee   August 6th, 2009 1:24 am ET

Everything is back by now. I think they are waiting because of the internal investigation into all these Dr's, providers, enablers, go-fers, etc. Plus, It takes a good long time to explain some of the findings to the DA as well as going thru each case history that each Dr had in a file.
That Dr. made the fatal mistake of going ahead and giving this stuff to Michael , knowing he should not have done so, ok? He opened his mouth and now will suffer the consequences; he opened his mouth and admitted to administering this anestheisa drug, that alone will get his license pulled forever. Hope he suffers big time as well as the rest who gave and gave without saying NO.

CC   August 6th, 2009 1:31 am ET

check out MJHD on the internet. very interesting, everyone should read this!!!!!

Bryant   August 6th, 2009 3:26 am ET

I think he had so many drugs in his system thank they are unable to pinpoint what was the cause of death. Which is why they are seaching so hard they MUST find something , they need to blame somebody,,, when really Mr. Jackson slowly Killed himself...

God Bless you Micheal..

Earnye Marie   August 6th, 2009 4:04 am ET

How sad for Michael. It appears he had no one around him, except his dear children, who really cared about his well being. I think Phillips from AEG, along with Dr. Murray, will have a lot to do with the final hours of Michael's life. He gave an interview sometime earlier this year and he made the statement, "Michael will go on stage and do those shows or else I will throw him over my shoulder and carry him onstage....after all, he's light enough." He was referring to Michael's actual weight being so low. I think the 30 minutes or so that were wasted before Dr. Murray summoned, the security guard to phone 911 were spent calling Phillips and Dileo to get them in place to be able to control the situation before the family was informed Very dirty business happened on June 25, 2009..

My heart is just broken to see the despicable way that Michael was handled in death. He is surely resting in peace ....because the King of Kings has given true peace.

Now, the others, who cared so little about Michael's life will be accountable and will pay dearly. RIP Mr. Jackson

Jessica   August 6th, 2009 4:37 am ET

I heard that they are going to release the atopsy when MJ's kids reach 18 years of age

Jessica   August 6th, 2009 4:42 am ET

some people are delusional

Geraldine Hughes   August 6th, 2009 5:18 am ET

Redemption: The Truth Behind the Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegation is the book that proves Micheal Jackson was famed in 1993. The author, Geraldine Hughes, worked for the attorney of the 13 year old accuser's father and she witnessed an elaborate extortion scheme, launced as child molestation when MJ refused to pay their requested $20 million dollar demand for a movie deal.

In loving memory of Michael Jackson, his family and children, get your copy of Redemption on, and help me clear Michael Jackson's name.

V. Brame   August 6th, 2009 6:51 am ET

L.A.P.D. always hated MJ and they don't care about him now. MJ was murdered but his family and fans my never get justic.

mimi   August 6th, 2009 6:51 am ET

Re: Geraldine Hughes

You know wat, i still cannot beleive that theses so called MJ accusers go to sleep at night and wake in the morning knowing that Micheal did nothing to them instead, they contributed to turning Micheals life upside down which led to his using more of this so called prescritive medication and eventually to Micheals death...

These EVIL people walk around day and night knowing that Micheal is dead and that they have a hand in it in one way or the other wthout conscience. I tell u, i personally have learnt a lot from Micheals trials, some people have the DEVILs HEART and soul in them and NOOOOOOOOOO conscience watsoever.

All the people that caused this man pain in one way or the other can never go free for sure... nemesis MUST surely come bk at them... wat u reap is wat u sow.

Carla   August 6th, 2009 9:37 am ET

Hi Larry,

This question is for Jermaine. The children`s nanny Grace has been with them since they were babies. And from what I have heard, and read, the children love her very much an vice versa. Will she continue to be their nanny now that Mrs Jackson has gotten custody of the kids?

Patty Anderson   August 6th, 2009 10:22 am ET

Geraldine Hughes: Thanks for the tip I ordered this morning. I never believed any of those accusations. Maybe us fans can find a way to bring the truth out!!!

Cocovelvet   August 6th, 2009 11:33 am ET

I am so sickened and disgusted by people such as this Carrie who still believe that MJ wanted to be "white". The issue should already be clearly by now since one of the first people who came forward after MJ's death to clarify that fact was his dermatologist Dr.Klein, and he has clearly mentioned that MJ had a skin disorder called Vitiligo. I see it as complete ignorance or only to make fun out of the poor deceased man to say the least that he wanted to be white.

I know a neighbour who has the same problem of Vitiligo and I have to say it is not at all a nice sight to see someone with it in the first place. MJ must have really gone through a lot with that since I have heard some people with the disorder even end up closing themselves completely out of the rest of society. I give MJ credit for having been able to withstand all that and continued appearing infront of his fans and cameras despite that fact; MJ didn't have any other option but to even-out the skin colour.

I think if MJ had an option of turning all the light coloured patches on his skin to their original brown colour , he could have done it . As Dr. Klein mentioned, there was no other option to take with the skin disorder than the one they took. SO; PLEASE CARRIE; MJ NEVER WANTED TO BE WHITE AS YOU PUT IT; HE WAS JUST ONE UNFORTUNATE GUY WHO HAPPENED TO HAVE THAT SKIN DISORDER!!!!!.........

Frank DiLeo, Conrad Murray and AEG as well – Bad news. Ask the man (DiLeo) how he can live with himself.

mariau   August 6th, 2009 1:57 pm ET

carrie, what the heck are you doing in this blog? before you conclude and condemn Michael.. check your life first... and look your face in the mirror.. before you clean other mess..

Kanoe   August 6th, 2009 2:09 pm ET

I remember what Liza Minelli said during her first interview after MJ's death. She said something to the effect that an investigation would open a pandora's box of MJ's private life, meaning the drugs, the people inside his inner world, etc. Seems to be the case, doesn't it?

raven   August 6th, 2009 2:48 pm ET


Said A fan called him thats how he found out about MICHAEL'S death..... something is wrong with that picture!!!!!!! I did not believe a word he said. He knows alot more than he is talking about!!!!!

Frank how many fans do you give your phone number tooooo???????



Lisa S   August 6th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

raven: Joe JAckson said the same.

Jessica   August 6th, 2009 2:59 pm ET

CARRIE- GET REAL!!! Lay off the Enquirer magazine, don't let them brainwash you into thinking Michael Jackson wanted to be white. ACT LIKE A GROWNUP
