Michael Jackson's Children Spend Weekend in Vegas

Posted: 12:34 AM ET

By Mark Grey via People.com

Katherine-Paris-JacksonWith their grandma by their side, Michael Jackson's children had a splashing good time over the weekend in Las Vegas.

Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. "Blanket"), 7, were spotted at the Palms Casino Resort's pool sipping on virgin strawberry-banana daiquiri's on Sunday. They, along with three friends, dunked each other in the pool and swam around for more than two hours. Blanket, wearing a life preserver, even showed some of his moves, dancing on the edge of the pool before jumping in the water.

Katherine Jackson kept a close eye, accompanied by a friend and nanny, and smiled over the pool-side antics.

I am so glad the children are having some summer fun time


lex   August 24th, 2009 12:41 am ET

me 2 lori thy need 2 get away and hav fun


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 24th, 2009 12:47 am ET

It's also good for them to get out of California. The children are so well-traveled, moreso than most adults. I can only imagine the cabin-fever they were probably experiencing in Encino. Good for them, and kudos to Ms. Katherine for allowing them to have this retreat before school starts. 🙂


sarah   August 24th, 2009 12:54 am ET

They sure needed some change!!!!

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN !!! PEACE!!!


Bella   August 24th, 2009 1:06 am ET

Good for them, and for Katherine also. I am sure Michael were there in spirit.

I feel so relief that no photos were taken.


Lisa S   August 24th, 2009 1:41 am ET

This is good news!


Susan   August 24th, 2009 1:53 am ET

I'm so glad that Katherine got some rest. It's wonderful that the media didn't get involved and the family finally got some privacy.


Jacquelyn   August 24th, 2009 2:21 am ET

Good they need to spend time with Joe 🙂


ann   August 24th, 2009 2:51 am ET

Lori   August 24th, 2009 2:54 am ET

I wonder if Debbie Rowe has seen them. There doesn't seem to be any reports about that.

JENKINS FOUND HUNG IN A HOTEL IN HOPE B.C


claire   August 24th, 2009 3:41 am ET

I hope you guys had a great time.I'm thinking of you, God bless


Oluwatoyin. M   August 24th, 2009 4:49 am ET

I am so happy that the children are having a great time, thank God. And l hope Blanket will take over his father throne. I pray that Michael's gentle and kind soul will find peace with the Lord (amen) because this is what he really want for his children, which is 'peace'. I can still remember his speeches after his trial in 1993 that he his fear of been taken away from them, that he is now resting and relax with them. Thank God for answer Michael's prayer.


Helen, Sweden   August 24th, 2009 4:53 am ET

Good to hear the children having a good time,I`m sure that Michael can see them from his heaven and smile.Katherine is perfect for them and I think she was a good mother to Michael as well.She is a good person and so was her son. It is so sad what has happened. RIP Dear Michael.Miss You....


Naina   August 24th, 2009 7:14 am ET

i am glad that they have got a break from the media and that they are continuing with their normal life now.I pray that Micheal's soul rests in peace.

May god bless all three of you.


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 7:19 am ET

Good for them! Why is (read more) blocked and why is the picture blocked?

They should have fun bcse next week is their father's burial......will bring all back again! Poor sweethearts!


Rose   August 24th, 2009 7:52 am ET

God bless these three wonderful kids. Michael really loved them; they mean the world to him. He taught the essential values in life.


Patty Anderson   August 24th, 2009 8:37 am ET

It is nice to see Katherine is trying to bring some fun and normal activities into their lifes. I pray to GOD the media leaves these children alone.

Good Morning all


Anthony   August 24th, 2009 8:50 am ET

That's nice. Blanket loves to dance.

I'm glad Mrs Jackson took them on this mini-vacation. Hopefully, the media didn't harass them.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 9:19 am ET

how are you Patty-have I missed anyhing interesting–The informer hasn't been on, I wonder why?


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 9:27 am ET

Good morning and/or afternoon!

Good to hear the children had some distraction.

It is sad though, realizing from now on they will have to go without their beloved dad.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 9:35 am ET

Hi Eli

@Linda,

Is that a new one? Let me see.

BTW I watched your live version of Another part of me again, and I really have to say, Michael's live performances were very good. I watched the Bad, Dangerous and History tour on DVD, but he was really good, live.

@Shalom Allure!


Mara   August 24th, 2009 9:59 am ET

How wonderful the children had fun at the Palms. Sexy Casino Playboy theme. MJ's party there on Saturday can't wait ....stoked!

Eli-I have to tell you–I had never seen him perfom that song until you posted it on the Yahoo group site– That is absolutely one of my top favorites–I can watch that all day long–Thanks

google Geraldo at large

on main page there is a pic of MJ Death Probe...click on that...then next page clickon thumbnail with MJ pic "Death Probe" – august 21 about 10 min. long

I cant post it here!

Mara   August 24th, 2009 10:28 am ET

They cater to the young sexy crowd. Sort of like Hard Rock Casino. Playboy theme. Ever watch Hugh Hefner's Girl's Next Door show? The girls party at the Palms alot. Gorgeous Casino.

Hi Mariau

Yes Linda I got it.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 10:30 am ET

@Linda, I often look at the video, he was so sexy at that time and his smile was still so bright and full of energy. It breaks my heart to see how this all changed. As for the song Another part of me. The lyrics are wonderful and the music itself was always a bit underestimated, but musically the song was built perfectly.

BTW, as with the website of Rhonda, I can no longer listen to the tracks that have been put up. It says something like "due to licensing". I guess you cannot listen to it when you don't live in the States.


Canadian-Sandy   August 24th, 2009 10:33 am ET

I just finished watching Geraldo's interview.

Greed. Greed. Greed.

I love it when Geraldo says... get that picture off the scree( of Murray )..I've seen enough of it!!!!


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 10:34 am ET

Geraldo gets to the truth!!

Another scenario is the investigation so many allegations, hearsay, who do you believe?


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 10:34 am ET

Eli-Yes that entire perfomance–was just electrifying-he looked so happy that it does break you heart, but watching it just makes me feel better.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 10:36 am ET

sandy:
I'll watch will check out Geraldo when I go home later.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 10:36 am ET

@Lora,

LOL, Geraldo says softly, when looking at the photo of Murray

"I am tired of looking to that guy"

EXACTLY!!! 😉


Mara   August 24th, 2009 10:36 am ET

It may be one of JJ's favorite spots cause I heard he was at Simon's (restaurant at the Palms) on the 16th having lunch with the director of this party their having on Saturday.

Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 10:38 am ET

Re: Geraldo video

Very disturbed to hear that...AEG used him, obviously and enabled his abuse of drugs....IF in fact that is the case. I do believe that the Inner Circle kept him away from his family! and this Dr. Toom Toom (or whatever) he was going to screw Michael and his family....what the hell is that about?


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 10:40 am ET

I think MJ like it there as well...I read that MJ and kids stayed there for 2 or 3 months in 2008.

Good to see you here!

@Lora, I watched the video. Thank you for pointing to it.

Thome Thome. I don't think he is a Saudi doctor, but rather a Lebanese businessman. He is from the country next to mine. Tohme Tohme, he is the one that should be questioned under oath the most.


Mara   August 24th, 2009 10:50 am ET

Linda

Are you serious? That party is going to be off the hook. I wish I could party here, go to CALI then party in Brooklyn all on his BDAY!

I love NY they have the finest men and everyone knows how to dress. My first time there was when I was 17 years old traveling all the way from Hawaii – I cried when I first saw the Statue of Liberty. NY is the place to be most definately.

no u didn't! I'm from Switzerland, italian part.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 11:03 am ET

@Eli–I agree that tohme tohme–whatever the hell his name looks a little shady to me.–They need to spend days questioning that character.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 11:04 am ET

Mariau, it is about the Geraldo video Lora speaks about here above. He says MJ fired Tohme Tohme one month before he died and that Tohme Tohme freaked out because of it and promised death and destruction to the Jackson family clan.

Tohme Tohme had invested in Neverland.

Which suddenly reminds me of the Bahreinian sheikh, with whom MJ was in a fight too. MJ stayed with the sheikh in Bahrein and he paid all his expenses, assuming Michael would help him with his new music label. It is unclear if MJ really promised to help him or even, if there was a contract, but in the end the two of them got estranged and Michael went to Ireland instead. The sheikh sued Michael, but I think the case was settled outside the court.

Tohme Tohme and this sheikh from Bahrein are both Middel Eastern men, I wonder if they new each other and if Tohme Tohme had anything going on with the sheikh.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 11:05 am ET

@Allure
Did you just say it was warm there? It's funny I always picture Switzerland freezing cold all the time-


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 11:08 am ET

@Allure, I once spent some time in a hospital in Sion (how ironically, Sion-Zion 😉 ) and I have been to the French part of Switzerland often.

I also have been on some Jewish summer camp near Basel. Basel is the best known place for Hertzl's vision of a Jewish state.


Allure   August 24th, 2009 11:08 am ET

Linda
🙂 I know what you mean: snow, watches, cheese and chocolate! You're talking about the German part (where I was born) that's why I live in the south with it's palm trees, tourists, etc. 🙂


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 11:11 am ET

Where there is money, there is greed, there is evil, Michael surrounded himself, either knowingly or unknowingly with these characters...we will never know. Were they pushing the drugs on him? Jeez! I'm angrier now then ever after seeing this video!

Tohme Tohme said that he would screw Michael and his family bring death and destruction????? Sounds like an evil man to me!

I hope this man is one of the Dr's indited! He needs to be questioned! Should send him to Guantanamo Bay so he can be interrogated by them!


mariau   August 24th, 2009 11:11 am ET

mariau   August 24th, 2009 11:19 am ET

lora you're right sounds tohme is an evil man, his connected to AEG
so this is it!!! the conspiracy of a crime to kill Michael Jackson.
they purshed MJ to do this concert because of their billionaire producer.
sounds evil.. i love Geraldo Rivera.. honest and respective journalist.
i'm friends of Geraldo Rivera in facebook.. please join them in fan group geraldo rivera. facebook..

Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:23 am ET

I was woch Geraldo now.I realy hope,thay say the true,and gat all the bad guys...


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:32 am ET

So wath everybody think about what Jacquelin was post ( i think) yestarday about the MJ death hoax part 7,about the stage S behinde hes legs,and the same coreografy with the old koncert.Pluss,what was not in the show,that at the rehearsel was 2 kinde of MJ.On the video from the stage Michael look like 90-s to me,but whenn he is off the stage,he look like at the O2 annoncment.

I am not uskeing,couse i believe,he is a life,but something is wrong,like this woulod be a cheating too.Like the rehearsel video on the stage was not a new video,and whenn he is off the stage,thet was realy from this time of rehearshel.Like AMG would fake with an old video,that Michael was look good and fitt,and dance and sing good.I was show you before,that i dont understand,how can be Michael look diferent in the same time,and some of you said,couse he changed wig,but its not correct,couse not only the hair was diferent,but hes face too.Something is wrong with this videos,and i think AEG is fooling us.


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:34 am ET

Mariau,Geraldo didnt take me to hes friendes... 😦 ,but its ok,what would i doo with that anywhay...


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 11:34 am ET

Stu

About the MJ death hoax...I watched part 6, 7, 8, 9...to me it doesn't prove that he is alive at all! The video keeps on saying it will all come together but yet at end of 9th part....still confusing!


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:36 am ET

Sory,not AMG but AEG

where is everybody?Did i scared away everybody?


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 11:37 am ET

Stu

How do you get songs on Itune...do you have to be a member and does it cost anything?


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:38 am ET

Lora,i just wrighed,that was not my point,i dont believe it eider,he is a life.My point was,that AEG was cheating with the videos,nad trieng to believe with the public,that MJ was helthy.

For me automaticly came 9.


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 11:39 am ET

No,i just dawnload a free program,and i just put my songs on itunes,but you can ypuse any player.

WE LOVE YOU.. 🙂


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:23 pm ET

mariau–which video are you talking about


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 12:24 pm ET

I approach the case from different angles.

First the small picture: I know I will hurt a lot of you when I say I believe MJ was in deep trouble with his prescripted drugs addiction, dependancy, what ever you call it. Therefore I tend to believe the stories about the stock piles of drugs in his bathrooms and even self induced illegal search for pills. I am sorry to say, but I do believe he has his own part in this. I also believe, until further notice, his death was an accident for which primarily Murray can be held accountable.

However, looking at the bigger picture, there is a lot of suspicion about the role of AEG, Tohme Tohme and many others around MJ's performance, health test, financial matters and so on.

I know the LAPD is investigating the factual death, but IMO that shoul not be all of it. This AEG and Tohme Tohme should be screened thoroughly, because something is not kosher.

This must be very frustrated for the family to see.

Lora Ottawa Canada, thanks for the video. I am praying for Justice to work for Michael. Nothing can bring him back, but he just can't be killed like that.


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 12:31 pm ET

O Mariau,you make me cry alvais...


Maria   August 24th, 2009 12:31 pm ET

Re Geraldo:
I don't know why nobody says anything about the motivation of the interviewees.

Allocco (of Allgood Entertainment) sued MJ for $20 mil in June, claiming that the contract with AEG jeopardizes his plan for a Jackson family reunion show. MJ said he never signed a contract with Allocco and Allocco never proved that MJ had signed a contract with him.

And Raymone Bain, former MJ publicist and general manager (I have no idea why she is presented as"MJ friend"???) sued MJ for $44 mil, saying that she is entitled to 10% of the profits from all AEG-related projects, because she was the one who started negotiations with AEG in 2007.

Answer the IM 🙂


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:34 pm ET

@ Stu
You a right–MJ does look very different form the Staples center footage-if you put the pictures side by side–looks like two diffferent people–


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:36 pm ET

@Jacquelyn–can you try again


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

No,look like on the stage he is in 90-s and off the stage whenn he was at tha O2 annoncment,wich is maybe not hem.I think,we dont see any picture about hem at the rehearsel what is realy hem at 23. juni


Jacquelyn   August 24th, 2009 12:41 pm ET

Linda

I did


mariau   August 24th, 2009 12:41 pm ET

lisa i can't find it's different group you are not alone mj.
give me the exact link..


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 12:42 pm ET

Maria

I believe he was trying to get Michael to do a 1 time concert only and through trying to negotiate he found out all this information about MJ final months!


mariau   August 24th, 2009 12:42 pm ET

i mean linda.. please give me the link exactly


mariau   August 24th, 2009 12:46 pm ET

stu
sorry i made you cry.. because i really like MJ here in this video. Michael very attractive here.. very handsome.. i fell in love with him.. again and again... WE LOVE YOU MICHAEL.. YOU ARE THE CUTEST MAN ON EARTH.. I DONT ACCEPT OBJECTION.. PERIOD


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Mariau
Are you kiddin me? Raymone Bain–she was fired a while ago–Well if she was involved in that AEG negotiation? what does that say?


mariau   August 24th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

lora otawa canada
yes.. i agree with you 🙂 🙂


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:53 pm ET

@mariau–Which video are you talking about?


Lori   August 24th, 2009 12:54 pm ET

It seems to me, that Michael had fallen into a snake pit in the final months. Who can figure out his friends from his enemies.


mariau   August 24th, 2009 12:55 pm ET

linda - thanks.. wma 2006 awards Michael jackson


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:56 pm ET

@Lori
agree 100%–can you imagine not being able to trust anyone?


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 12:58 pm ET

@maria u
is that the one where is wearing the black outfit-white T-shirt-straight hair–with the silver belt around his hip– is he singing or just accepting the award


Shelby   August 24th, 2009 12:59 pm ET

What;s the details on this book that Grace wrote about Michael? Anybody know?


Lori   August 24th, 2009 12:59 pm ET

No, Linda, I cannot. It must have been a horrible way to live.
“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:06 pm ET

@Lori
I would have to be on prescription meds- for that–
my goodness-that is why –I will never blame Michael for being addicted to prescription drugs; sometimes there are things that you are just not strong enough to deal with and you need help to deal with them.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 1:07 pm ET

Hey - has anyone heard how much the tickets are going to be for the This is It movie in October?


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 1:16 pm ET

Now everybody gonna hate me,wath i am gonna wrighd,but what,if he was realy skiny,like the girl wrighed in Anthony letter,and he was olso addictid to this propofol.I know,we blame Murey,but i think,for that money he could finde anywhay sombody,who would give hem this stuf.Make me think,this death hoax 7 and the 2 kinde of Michael.Maybe he was to week to do this koncert,on the stage could be an older tape,and off the stage was not hem,just like at O2 annoncment,and now AEG make up the storie,that he was in good helth.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 1:23 pm ET

Well, Stu, that is the problem. One side says one thing and the other says the complete opposite. Hopefully some one will know the truth and eventually it will come out, because I do not see how Michael could be both "happy, healthy and excited about the shows" and also
"emaciated, a 112 pounds and unrecognizable" unless there were 2 of him. I guess we just have to wait for the truth to emerge.


Maria   August 24th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

Lora: Allocco said elsewhere that the man with whom he was negotiating that contract was in fact Frank DiLeo (?), whom he also sued. But my point was that Geraldo never mentioned his suit against MJ, that is, the fact that he has a big financial motivation to speak today against AEG.

lindafromnewyork: it does say that Bain was seeing in 2007 a good opportunity for a MJ comeback through AEG. Anyway, her efforts (if her claim is true) never materialized. So it doesn't say that she is conspiring with AEG; it only proves her greed to profit retroactively from a contract that wasn't brokered by her. Whether Michael was fit or not in 2007 to do such concerts (1, 5 or 50) it's another story.


mariau   August 24th, 2009 1:26 pm ET

linda.. singing with girls and boys.. please check that video. and watch.. how gorgeous was Michael


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:27 pm ET

Mariau–I just kidding abut the conspiring with AEG part–and I agree she is a greedy and opportunistic.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:28 pm ET

Maria-I will later.

did you just post a link on that site i gave you earlier


Lori   August 24th, 2009 1:29 pm ET

Maria,
Could you repost your 12 point post from the other day? It was awesome.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

@ Lori –

I do not see how Michael could be both “happy, healthy and excited about the shows” and also
“emaciated, a 112 pounds and unrecognizable” unless there were 2 of him. I guess we just have to wait for the truth to emerge.

Exactly. There are so many questions surrounding MJ. Both when he was alive and now in death.

I think MJ was excited and truly wanted to have some sort of a come back, before he would quit performing and turn to (what has been said) filming. But I also believe that when the kick off approached he got nervous, not to say desperate, and knew he could no longer pretend he was able to do it.


Tina (Germany)   August 24th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

Hi all. What worries me the most, is the thing that by now several people stated that he said they are going too kill him. This radio interview with Corey and the other guy. One of them said that he told him that he will never ever tour again because it will kill him, that he cannot sleep and eat and forget to drink and that last time "they" made him run around with an IV. Then the chef said he stated they will kill him etc. etc. For me that sounds like not he was the one who started the IV thing, sounds like other tried to made him capable to do this tours first hand. No idea, but looks like several people knew he won't make it without medication.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

Hey Guys
they are plaing Man in the MIrror on the station I'm listeining-I can just see MJ singing that song-


mariau   August 24th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

linda yes.. thank you .. i posted comment there.. and i will post more videos of mj


mariau   August 24th, 2009 1:32 pm ET

Tina (Germany)
hi how are you? 🙂


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:34 pm ET

@TINA
Thank you for mentioning they had him running around with an IV-they had him running around with an IV because he was always dehydrated-but all I hear about is IV in connection to Propofol--


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 1:34 pm ET

back later


Tina (Germany)   August 24th, 2009 1:38 pm ET

Hi mariau. Well more and more confused. Remember what the chef said, she left for 4 weeks and when she left he was eating, looked ok, seemed healthy etc. and 4 weeks later when she came back she saw a difference and just thought well he is tired from rehearsing and he told her they are going to kill him. What the hell happened during this 4 weeks. No one can tell me that only the fact that this special chef didn't cook for 4 weeks made him become a skinny ghost that suddenly needs drugs and dies short after.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

Barry Gibb pays tribute to MJ.

Tina (Germany)   August 24th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Well on the other hand people that really have eating problems like e.g. bulimia also eat all the time and then throw everything up without anyone noticing. But that is something an autopshy can find out. People with that illness have visible signs (teeth, esophagus)


Maria   August 24th, 2009 1:44 pm ET

@ Stu (1:16 pm ET): I'm not gonna hate you for saying this. Only that it doesn't mean that there were 2 Michaels. It's not inconceivable that his health was deteriorating gradually – in March probably he was feeling better than at the end of June.
It's not inconceivable also that he was able to do long, impressive rehearsals and to oscillate between believing that he can do the concerts and deep desperation and stage fright. And it's not inconceivable also that he fell victim to the vicious circle: drugs – fear of embarrasment on the stage – more drugs – excitement on the stage – insomnia – more drugs – fear – more drugs. And the enablers "were there for him".


mariau   August 24th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

tina
as i suspected, that Michael was surroundings by bad people. and they pushed him to do anything in exchanged of his debt and come back tour.
behind that tour.. they knew Michael would do at least 10 show in london.. i never believed Michael was an addict and took the pharmacies in his hotel bathroom.. this wasn't make sense to me. i know that's there something bigger than that.. i want you to watch Geraldo at large Michael's death probe.. check it maybe you could find an answer.,..
because i will tell you.. Michael's death is a big big conspiracy.. anytime, annyone.. people will come forward.. and tell lies... i knew it.
i don't believe anymore to those people who came forward.. and telling something.. it doesn't help either..


Tina (Germany)   August 24th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

I watched it already. That it cannot be something small is quit clear by now, or we would have had an answer 2 month ago.


Maria   August 24th, 2009 1:55 pm ET

lindafromnewyork: sure 🙂 (but I'm not "mariau")

Lori: thanks a lot, I saw your replies there, but it was useless to respond to you on an older thread.
This was my reply to Alicia who wondered about TI predicting that something will happen in the next few days:

No. Nobody was predicting anything.
All sort of things can happen in the next 5 days, then in the next 5 or 10 days, weeks and months. It’s only natural, because it’s about Michael Jackson. It’s easy as ABC.
Let me do a brief list for you:

1. Court hearings (for example, there’s an important one today; all reports should end with news about Katherine suing someone or Klein preparing for a DNA test)

2. Leaked documents (preferably confidential ones or FBI files; autopsy documents are a plus; autopsy pictures are pure gold; the security tapes from Holmby Hills are the ultimate prize)

3. Unnoficial announcements about future indictments (at least one per day, but no more than three; different anonymous sources from LAPD should be used each day, to avoid monotony)

4. People who claim they are MJ’s lovers or secret sons or sperm donors (the secret sons must resemble MJ, precisely how he looked like in 1993, but the biological fathers can look anyway they want, they can be even Japanese – the public will detect anyway a lot of striking similarities between them and MJ’s children)

5. Revelations from former employees of MJ (usually about hot topics – how many noses MJ used to keep in his closet, how many times per hour he was injecting himself with any kind of drug whose name starts with a D)

6. New youtube videos with MJ showing up in Dubai or Moscow (or at least another ghost of him, preferably dressed as a MJ impersonator from the ’90s; if all these are lacking, there should be at least a potato, a cloud or a wet car windscreen where MJ’s face can be clearly seen)

7. New internet hoaxes about Chandler or even Arvizo who “decided to break the silence” (this can be a highly productive discussion topic, since a viral chain of links can be endless – site D links to site C which links to site B which links to site A, the source – 404 Not Found)

8. Sensational blog posts written by psychics who tell the true story of their latest conversations with MJ (including exclusive info about the present location of his spirit – heaven, hell or somewhere in between)

9. Old and lengthy taped conversations (MJ talking to someone, but only if what he says is unaudible at least half of the time; a better alternative could be Jermaine talking to himself, courtesy of Stacy Brown)

10. Unreleased songs (in fact only samples – a few seconds, just for teasing) with lyrics that 100% suggest: a) that MJ is alive; b) that MJ was murdered; c) that MJ became a Muslim; d) that MJ was planning a regime change in a certain country or countries

11. Companies that are suing the estate for old debts (the first one was Korean, but you can’t have a Korean company every day)

12. New Informers and Informer Impersonators on the LKL blog.

---–
And PLEASE, look also at my reply in the yesterday thread (Sunday on Larry King Live):

August 23rd, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Patty Anderson – August 23rd, 2009 8:48 pm ET
I don’t know it this is a game player getting his rocks off of doing this or someone who feels extremely sad for Micheals fans and himself and just wants to comfort people.
==============
If he felt sad, then he would have refrained himself from making fun of the fans. To serve someone lies and illusions is not helpful and not respectful. All posters here are grown-up people, not children who lost a parent and who are told by some adult “don’t cry, your father/mother is somewhere in a long trip and he/she will come back someday”.

It’s insulting to the most elementary logic to say that Michael was in disguise at his own memorial service. “Wanted to see if going out in public all made up could be possible”? But he knew very well that it is possible, he did it many times before (by the way, go to Makeupmag dot com current issue and see for yourselves some proves!!)

Or that Randy, Jackie and Janet “spotted Michael” at the memorial and laughed because of his appearance? No kidding! Even if hypothetically they knew that he’s alive and that he will be at the memorial, laughter is an inconceivable reaction for any sane people in such an occasion. No matter how “funny” a disguise may look.

And what about Paris?? If the “mysterious old man” was so focused on what’s going on that that he stood up when they rolled the coffin away, then what reaction must have had a father that sees his daughter crushed by grief on the stage? Or maybe Informer/Makeapoint wants to suggest that Michael was such a scummy person and father that he instructed his daughter to fake that highly emotional moment?

IMO people waste waaaaaay too much time discussing about this user. We may be frustrated by the many contradicting stories about MJ’s death, but again, I can’t see why people are so inclined to disbelieve “the media”, but suddenly give credit to someone that comes from nowhere and pretends to know better, offering as arguments a chain of allegations that insult anyone’s intelligence.

@ Brigida (9:11 pm ET: I agree with you.
A prank is a prank, and Michael loved this kind of jokes. But hiding away like a coward rat and risking his freedom for faking death is no joke at all. Again, it’s against elementary logic to think that he might have needed a publicity stunt of any sort, when he had 50 concerts fully booked. He might have been unprepared, or unfit, or frightened by the concerts. But he knew very well that NO future comeback is possible for him if he didn’t honor his commitment to do the concerts.


Tina (Germany)   August 24th, 2009 1:59 pm ET

I really wonder how the children will survive all this things, when they are able to read everything one day. They need to be very brave. I can't even imagine how it will be for them. It is already enough that he died the way he did, I don't want to talk about all the other things. I hope they will be strong enough. Time will tell.


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 24th, 2009 2:31 pm ET

Samantha - South Africa   August 24th, 2009 3:01 pm ET

Nice to know that the kids have been having a good time with Katherine in Vegas.


Triny   August 24th, 2009 3:09 pm ET

Seeing things like this makes me miss Michael even more. My only wish is that some day very soon he will be vindicated for all the wrong that was done on him (Jordan Chandler and his family). Michael was such a kind hearted man and gave so much of his life and money to those in need. He didn't deserve to be treated the way he was.

I hope my prayers will be answered in that Michael Jackson will very soon be vindicated.


lindafromnewyork   August 24th, 2009 3:10 pm ET

@Eli
I am not surprised that Barry Gibb pays tribute to MJ. I beleive that MJ was godfather to one of his children and he is the only that came out and defended Michael during the trial.


sarah   August 24th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

@Lori–
I know it is tempting isn't–With the the hoax stuff out there–you can actually talk yourself into believing this.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

Terri - I listened to that video. I am not sure it sounded like Michael, but if it was him, it sure sounds like he was being taken advantage of by the people around him.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 3:42 pm ET

Linda is is way too easy to fall into the trap. I have to keep reminding myself. Realtiy is reality and fantasy is fantasy. And if that doesn't work, I call my sister.

its official now, MJ died of profofol LA TIMES reporting (cnn reporting)

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN!! PEACE!!


Samantha - South Africa   August 24th, 2009 3:58 pm ET

ACCORDING TO TMZ.COM:

Michael Jackson had lethal levels of Propofol in his system when he died, this according to a search warrant affidavit that was unsealed in Houston today and obtained by the L.A. Times.


Maria   August 24th, 2009 4:01 pm ET

Lori 🙂
I wanted too to believe that he's alive. It's a tempting thought indeed. I was SO happy when I found out about his comeback, about the O2 concerts!! But now we have to cope with this tragic reality, and denial is only damaging for our minds.
And it's not only the denial about his death that is damaging to our minds. For me, there's no new revelation (drug addiction, a few sperm donors, how he looked like at the moment of autopsy) that can take away his musical an cultural legacy. There are so many artists who were drug addicted and died because of their addiction, but we don't love them less because of that. And it was HIS RIGHT to have as many plastic surgery as he wanted and to have children in the way he wanted.
I don't need to imagine a Michael Jackson who was murdered by some occult forces, or who is alive somewhere like Elvis, or who had only his biological children, or who had only 2 surgeries, to appreciate his legacy and to love his music. You will see how these things will become less and less important. I can imagine, for example, a future when his surgical mask will be discussed only as a cultural icon and a fashion statement, just like the Andy Warhol wig.


Jessica   August 24th, 2009 4:04 pm ET

3:01 eastern, in court documents it said Dr. M. had been trying to wean him from propofol and had given him other drugs the night he died to help him sleep ( xanax or tranquilizer I think they said) . In the morning Michael demanded propofol since he couldn't sleep that night.


Stu,Hungary   August 24th, 2009 4:04 pm ET

Mariau,you miss understand me.At the rehearsel was 2 kinde of Michael.1 is on the stage,wich looked,like in 90-s,and in death hoax 7 day show something is wrong with the pictuer with that S betvin hes legs and the coreografy is old,and the other is olso at rehearshel whenn he is not on stage.I didnt said,he is diferent at march and juni,i am saying,there is something wrong IN JUNI,couse at rehearsel are 2 Michael look.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

I agree Maria. 🙂 His legacy will live forever. He was a true genius and gave so much to the world.


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

@Terri, when I go to Radar I can't find the article. Could you perhaps write the steps down?


Samantha - South Africa   August 24th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

@ Jessica

Was Xanax or any other substance apart from Propofol detected in Michael's system?


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 4:16 pm ET

I don't get it:

Murray administerd propofol, after trying endless in vain with lorazepam and another sedative at:

10:40 a.m

So, he was planning on keeping Jackson down for the rest of the day?????????? I don't believe it. I think he administered it earlier and the mix with Valium, Tamsulosin, Lorazepam, Temazepam, Clonazepam, Trazodone and Tizanidine became fatal.

No wonder Jackson couldn't sleep. Never turn night and day upside down while trying to help an insomniac.


Maria   August 24th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

Re the LA Times article: All that Murray says is plausible. Except for big thing: that a doctor can treat his patient for insomnia using propofol.

@ Stu: I agree that the pic (THIS IS IT between his legs) is obviously photoshopped. But it doesn't prove that there were 2 Michaels. As for his appearance, he wanted to look like in the '90s and hence he had again curly hair. You saw him with curls in other pics and videos taken in June and not released by AEG. But his face is obviously different from the way he looked like in the '90s. It was only one Michael.


Maria   August 24th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

@ Eli: not necessarily. If you take propofol, you are unconscious as long as you want. If you want to be unconscious for an hour, you take propofol for an hour. If you want to be unconscious for 3 days, you take a bigger dose.

@ Stu: and I'm not mariau 🙂


sarah   August 24th, 2009 4:20 pm ET

i m not going crazy but didn't the INFORMER said that things going to change in the next five days, i think INFORMER said it on Aug .19th today is the fifth day rite ????? Its so weird like the new development on MJ propofol just heard on the news ......................

FANS OF MJ FROM PAKISTAN!!! PEACE!!!!


Lori   August 24th, 2009 4:21 pm ET

I think the affidavit is saying that it was only the propofol that was in lethal amounts. Cause of death will probably turn out to be propofol infusion syndrome. I hope all the doctors that were giving it to Michael get busted for it. Just because he wanted it, didn't mean he needed it. I hope the truth starts coming out.


Lori   August 24th, 2009 4:24 pm ET

Sarah - read Maria's 12 point post above. I think the Informer just got lucky. Things have been happening in the Michael Jackson case EVERY day.


Maureen (UK)   August 24th, 2009 4:25 pm ET

Good evening everyone

Jessica
Just read your blog re; court. Do you have any more info ?


Terri   August 24th, 2009 4:26 pm ET

Murray couldn't meant to keep MJ down he always ate lunch and dinner with the kids reemmber kai chase said so in the interview


Lori   August 24th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

Maureen – read the article in the LA Times – I posted it above


Terri   August 24th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

hello everyone


Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   August 24th, 2009 4:28 pm ET

@maria, I know, I have had propofol administered to me a couple of times for an electrical cardioversion.


Maureen (UK)   August 24th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

Lori, Thanks


Terri   August 24th, 2009 4:30 pm ET

If you go to radar online there is a video about MJ talking to his spiritual advisor bout Dr Tohme Tohme and being afraid of him .

Recordings from Michael Jackson to his spiritual adviser June Gatlin indicate the Thriller singer was fearful of Dr. Tohme R. Tohme, the advisor he had appointed to preside over his personal affairs last year.

"He just has ways about him ... the things he's done," Jackson tells Gatlin on the tapes. "There's a divide between my representatives and I ... I don't talk to my lawyer or my accountant - he talks to them, and I talk to him."

On the tape, Jackson revealed his concerns over Tohme's control over his finances.

"I know it’s not good - I don't know what's in my account," he said.

Tohme, according to the Today Show, met Jackson through the late King of Pop's brother, Jermaine, when he was battling to keep his Neverland estate last year. He is not a licensed physical in the U.S.

Tohme said in a Today Show appearance two weeks after Jackson’s death that he was in control of the singer’s day-to-day life. According to the show, Tohme has been fingered in connection with many illicit real estate deals.

Jackson died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest June 25 in Los Angeles; results of an autopsy conducted on the pop icon are being withheld by the Los Angeles Coroner's Office until the police investigation has been completed.

your welcome, Eli how is everyone today?


Terri   August 24th, 2009 4:40 pm ET

Murray should had known better giving divprivan to MJ or anyone after all of those naracotics he had already given him. It just doesnt seem responsible that seems fishy to me


Lori   August 24th, 2009 4:42 pm ET

Yes–now it looks like Murray was trying to "save" Michael by "weaning" him off propofol. Too bad Murray did not stay in the room with Michael and monitor him appropriately. If he had, Michael could very well be alive, well and with us today.


Gloria   August 24th, 2009 4:48 pm ET

Hi all: Maureen (UK) 🙂 and Lori:
Getting ready to leave work, but on Geraldo, it was said that the Jackson Family is going to drop a bombshell this week.... I got this from a friend of mine in an email and thought I would pass it along...

Been a busy day on here, it will take me awhile to catch up. I will be on later when I get home from work....
Until then.....
Gloria from Pittsburgh

Gob bless the children and the mother for being so strong. no parent should ever have to bury one of their children

OK Everybody-Shock and AWW for me today.

I dont get it- I read the article Lori posted from LA times. It says cause of death was a lethal amount of Diprovan(propofol) in his system
Does it not also say that for the 2 nights prior to his death 23rd and 24th (actually morning of 25th)that he cut the dose form the regular 50mg to 25mg??? I know he was given numerous sedatives also but it doesn't say that they were even contributory to his death???

How was the dose lethat if it was 1/2 of what he was used to getting?

BHW-Hello everybody on the blog!


Maureen (UK)   August 24th, 2009 4:56 pm ET

Hi Gloria 🙂
See you later.


Maureen (UK)   August 24th, 2009 5:02 pm ET

Lynn
Yes, I wonder if "lethal" is the key word ? Perhaps the dose found in the body is greater than the dose accounted for. Errors can happen when administerin ?
Seems like Michael had wanted to try to sleep without Propofol initially himself also. .


Lynn   August 24th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

Toni-I agree. They are going that direction as predicted by everyone here. Dr Murray trying to make himself the unfortunate "Hero"

Things still dont add up.

As far as the day 5 thing goes-I'm not at all surprised that Diprovan was the cause of his death but I am a little surprised that there is FINALLY something reported about it. Although now, I'm sure the story is NOT the complete one cause it doesn't make sense but then– What else is new??


Terri   August 24th, 2009 5:28 pm ET

Nothing is clear about this case. This is one preculiar investigation none of the stories match you would think someof them would have something in common. I alwasy was told that there some truth in every story perhaps we may never find out this truth which would be ashame for MJ Leagacy Should and Needs to Live on


Katinka from germany   August 24th, 2009 5:43 pm ET

TI-...within 5 days...
and today(5th day) breaking news...
I´m shocked!


Lori   August 24th, 2009 5:45 pm ET

Google propofol infusion syndrome–this happens sometimes to chronic users of propofol


Lynn   August 24th, 2009 6:42 pm ET

Lori

I dont think Propofol Infusion Syndrome explains how a dose was lethal when it was supposedly recently decreased.

Hi everyone

Toni I read your comment so very well said.
If he was an addict, I blame all the Dr's that chose to write prescriptions instead of following the oath they took and help hiim. They continued to enable him for the money and that's it. They did not care for Micheal as a patient. He was thier trip to the bank!!!


Patty Anderson   August 24th, 2009 7:24 pm ET

Lynn that dr is lying to cover his ass. He wasn't trying to get Micheal off it. He was probably injecting him everyday


Bobbie   August 24th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

A happy story about the Jackson family for once, Katherine is a amazing woman.


nicole   August 24th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

doctor murry and any other doctor who gave it to him its not like you can go to the local drug dealer to get propofol


jacqueline   August 24th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

evening everyone


Cecil Thompson   August 25th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Let’s take it from the top!

Are we able to establish whether MJ had been using drugs like propofol and other similar drugs over a longer period of time than the time over which he had known Murray? He knew Dr. Murray for two months.

MJ question to Deepak about a drug that was able transport a person to the brink of death then have him brought back.

Did Michael use this drug even before he spoke to Deepak? Did his query about the drug occur prior to his meeting of Dr. Murray? If so, the investigators are probably now asking, "Who prescribed and administered the drugs prior to Mrurray?"
