Katherine Jackson to get custody

Michael Jackson’s mother has agreed a deal to get custody of his children.

Katherine Jackson – who became the temporary guardian of Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II shortly after her son’s death last month – has reportedly reached an agreement with the eldest two children’s biological mother Debbie Rowe.

Katherine’s lawyer L. Londell McMillan told US TV programme ‘Early Show’: “It’s an agreement, an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. This is not about money.

“There is no situation better for these children than for them to be raised and reared in the loving care of Mrs. Katherine Jackson.”

It is believed Katherine will be given full custody, while Debbie will receive visitation rights.

Debbie will not be given any money, contrary to reports she was willing to accept a lump sump to give up her rights to the children.

The Los Angeles Times newspaper claims a child psychologist will be hired to discuss how, when and where Debbie’s visits should take place.

Various reports suggest Prince Michael I and Paris have had little or no contact with their mother since she divorced Michael in 1999, when she gave up her parental rights claiming he was the best father imaginable.

McMillan also responded to claims Michael did not want his father Joe Jackson – who Michael accused of physically abusing him when he was a child – to help raise his kids.

He said: “I don’t think it’s valid at all. I think Joe Jackson is the husband of Mrs. Jackson, but he’s not living in Los Angeles.”

McMillan also spoke about Michael’s 2002 will, in which he named lawyer John Branca and former music executive John McClain as the executors of his estate.

Katherine is arguing she should be kept abreast of any decision made relating to Michael’s estate, even though she was not named an executor.

Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for Branca and McClain, argues Katherine and her attorneys are trying to “re-write Michael’s will” so she can be more involved.

McMillan said: “He’s incorrect. Mrs. Jackson is not contesting the will. We are not trying to rewrite the will. Our concern is for anyone to have extraordinary powers, they need to have extraordinary trust and integrity.

“The question is what happened to this will in 2002? How come no one knew about it? How come Mrs. Jackson didn’t know about it? How come I didn’t know about it? How come we learned about it the day we filed a petition in court stating he died without a will?

“That estate is worth, in my estimation, a couple of billion dollars. You hear $500 million. Don’t buy it.”

Michael’s nose MIA at autopsy

Michael Jackson’s nose was missing as he lay in state.

An eyewitness claims he saw the ‘Beat It’ singer’s body on an autopsy table of a Los Angeles morgue with part of his face completely disappeared.

The witness said: “The prosthesis he normally attached to his damaged nose was missing, revealing bits of cartilage surrounding a small dark hole.”

Jackson – who died a month ago today of a suspected cardiac arrest – was believed to have had a number of surgical operations change the shape of his nose, which eventually eroded it away. He was also thought to be obsessed with plastic surgery and altering his appearance.

The witness added: “Jackson’s face – which he had so painfully reworked and concealed from the public for decades now – lay out in the open undisguised under the harsh lights.”

One of the ‘King Of Pop’s former housekeepers has previously told how the singer kept a number of false noses, which he applied using plasters and glue.

Adrian McManus said: “In his closet he had a jar of fake noses and stage glue, which he told me he used for disguises. But some were similar to his real nose, just without the hole.”

Reasons for Jackson’s fascination with surgery are unclear, though he has hinted it was because he was bullied as a child. Other sources said he was desperate not to look like his father, Joe Jackson, whom he had accused of hitting him as a youngster and making fun of his appearance.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles police have named the pop legend’s personal doctor, Conrad Murray as a manslaughter suspect in a probe into the star’s death.

Although toxicology reports have not confirmed the exact cause of Jackson’s death, it is believed he had dangerous levels of intravenously administered anaesthetic drug Propofol in his body at the time of his passing.

Dr Murray was with the singer when he died and also made an attempt to revive him.

A warrant issued by police allowed officers to search Murray’s assets for: “Property or items constituting evidence of the offence of manslaughter that tend to show Dr Conrad Murray committed the said criminal offence.”

Murray denies involvement in the singer’s death.

Well there is only one thing i have to say about this article form Yahoo! Entertainment…have some respect for the deceased. Who really cares what he did in his free time with his nose and stage glue?  Facsinating, yes, but c’mon, it’s been a month since his death… and yes i do know i’m sounding pretty hypocritical here considering i put the article up, but only because i know there are heaps of MJ fans out there who would like to know this stuff-but also because i thought to make a point about what i think, and that is that the media needs to give it all a rest right about now. it’s major news and all but the family is in mourning and besides, the guy really deserves some respect, and it doesn’t make a difference about who he was or what he did with his life.


Prince Michael watched dad die

Michael Jackson’s eldest son was forced to watch his father die, the singer’s family have claimed.

The pop superstar’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, allegedly made 12-year-old Prince Michael I watch his attempts to resuscitate him after he suffered a suspected cardiac arrest as he wanted a witness.

However, the Jackson family believe Michael had already been dead for at least two hours and Murray’s actions left Prince “understandably traumatised”.

Dr. Hoefflin, a family friend speaking on behalf of Michael’s mother Katherine, told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “I have been told by the family and from talking to the children that on the day Michael died, Dr. Murray actually got one of the Jackson children – it was Prince Michael I – to personally come into the bedroom to watch him perform CPR on his father.

“The family have told me Dr. Murray ensured Prince Michael understood the CPR procedure and that he was doing it correctly. It is the family’s belief that this was intended to show a member of Michael’s family that he was trying to bring Michael back to life.
“In my opinion Dr Murray should have known Michael was already dead and I believe that is the reason he didn’t move him from the bed to the harder surface of the floor to perform CPR.”

While Prince still struggles to come to terms with his father’s death his 11-year-old sister Paris is dealing with her grief by sleeping with a teddy bear her dad gave her.

Michael’s brother Jermaine said: “Paris sleeps with a teddy bear with Michael’s scent on – it’s so cute. It’s a little doll that he gave her and she sleeps holding it every night.”

Prince and Paris are also helping their younger brother, seven-year-old Prince Michael II, known as ‘Blanket’, come to terms with the loss of their beloved father.

Jermaine added: “I think ‘Blanket’ understands his dad has passed because of the ceremony we had. Prince and Paris are very bright and they have tried to explain it to him. And there is therapist with them to get through this time as well.”

Meanwhile, lawyers handling Michael’s estate are seeking a court-ordered allowance for his three children and mother Katherine.

A lawyer representing the temporary executors of his estate asked a judge to approve the allowance and the requests will be considered on August 3.


Paris Jackson’s Gift To Daddy

I know that a lot of you are interested in the Michael Jackson thing so I found another article about it on Yahoo! Entertainment. 🙂

Michael Jackson’s grieving daughter wrapped a heart necklace around his wrist as his body lay in an open coffin.

Paris Jackson, 11, wanted to give the piece of jewellery to her late father when she visited him at Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Cemetery last Monday (06.07.09) as she wanted to make sure he always had something to remind him of her.

Michael’s elder sister La Toya, who witnessed the heartbreaking act during the family’s private viewing, said: “Paris told me, ‘The heart is in two pieces. I want one half to go to daddy and I will wear the other half forever.’

“She carefully wrapped it around his wrist and said, ‘Daddy this is for you. On daddy, it will be blue because he is cold. On me, it’s purple. He’s so cold, he is so cold.’ ”

Paris bought the necklace – which changes colour according to temperature – after Michael died of a suspected cardiac arrest last month and she wore it when she made her emotional tribute to him at his memorial service last Tuesday (07.07.09).

Paris Jackson

As well as the jewellery, Paris also got some coloured stones to decorate her dad’s body with.

La Toya – who has claimed Michael was murdered by the “shadowy entourage” he surrounded himself – also recalled the moment she first saw Paris and her brothers, Prince Michael I and Prince Michael II, also known as ‘Blanket’, after the ‘Thriller’ singer’s death.

She said: “When I got to the hospital my mother was crying and the kids were crying. I screamed, ‘Is it true?’ and my mother said, ‘Yes, he’s gone.’ I couldn’t stop crying. I’m screaming and the kids are screaming. My mother was sitting there with all three of them on her lap, just crying.”

La Toya also revealed Michael was not the biological father of ‘Blanket’, revealing the youngster was conceived via artificial insemination.

She said: “Michael didn’t want to know who the biological parents were. They took eggs from a donor and I believe the sperm came from one of five donors picked from a book.

“I don’t know who carried the child or if the surrogate knew whose child she was carrying. Those children were his greatest joy. He was a superstar but the only people who loved him unconditionally were the children.”
