BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA – Tuesday November 23, 2010. MONKEY SUIT – ‘BAD‘ COSTUME MADE FOR MICHAEL JACKSON’S PET ‘BUBBLES‘ GOES ON SALE:
A leather suit made for Michael Jackson’s pet monkey Bubbles is to go on sale – to help pay for his long term care. The two piece suit – in the style of Jacko’s ‘Bad’ look – was hand-made and worn by the chimp during the 1980s. It was built to fit Bubbles and features black leather overalls with red leather piping and decorative metal studded cuffs. The custom-made costume – which is signed
‘Love Michael Jackson’ – will be sold with a guide price of between $2,000 – $4,000. Money made from the sale will be used to help look after Bubbles where he now lives at the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida. The suit is being sold among over 100 items of Jackson memorabilia at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California, on December 3 and 4. A spokesman said: ”The costume was custom made for Jackson’s friend and companion and the sale will benefit Bubbles long term housing and care.”
Michael Jackson’s former advisor Leonard Rowe (no relation to Debbie Rowe), came out in the news to say something that has been haunting him about Michael Jackson’s mysterious death. Michael had confided to Rowe that Michael’s purchase of this certain music catalogue may be the death of the human Michael Jackson.
Rowe says that Michael had told him, “They want my catalogue Rowe — and they will kill me for it.”
“When he was speaking about it, I paid him no attention but as the latest events have unfolded, I couldn’t help but think about his statement — and it still haunts me today.” Rowe told RadarOnline.com. Continue reading →
No mask and no blanket on Blanket Jackson’s head! Michael Jackson’s son Blanket looks like he’s free and he’s having a good time being a kid. Blanket has been uploading videos of himself and friends on YouTube lately. Although I can’t find the direct YouTube channel as of now, I found a channel that copies Blanket’s videos and uploads them for the fans. Looks like Blanket is into Star Wars.
I also found a 4 second video of Paris Jackson saying “Monkey please help.” We think she’s just having fun.
A couple weeks ago, Los Angeles prosecutors had charged Michael Jackson’s late physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, with involuntary manslaughter. Murray pleaded not guilty to the charge, but he admitted giving Michael the powerful anesthetic “Propofol” as a sleep aid on the day Michael died.
Since that hearing, Michael’s father Joe Jackson has not been satisfied with the outcome. He wants to dig deeper into this case…he believes there is more than meets the eye.
Back in court Friday morning, a Los Angeles judge just granted Joe Jackson permission to obtain his son Michael Jackson’s medical records. But the catch is that Joe nor the public will be able to see the documents. Judge Mitchell Beckloff stated that only a hired ‘medical expert’ could view the documents for Joe.
After viewing the documents, reports say that Joe will then decide whether or not to take further legal action against Dr. Conrad Murray, who was the Doctor with Michael the time of his death.
** Disclaimer! I do not know if Michael Jackson faked his death. Just like you, I am wondering if it was possible after seeing this video of “Michael Jumping Out of Coroner’s Van!” I am a huge Michael Jackson fan, so I would never disrespect. This evidence is for you to figure out if it is real or there is more to the Michael Jackson death than we know. **
This new video that Count just posted of a ‘possible sighting’ of Michael Jackson jumping out of a coroner’s van after his so-called death, has blown my mind. This video, and the possibility of Michael Jackson faking his death, led me to so many questions. Was Propofol used to fake his death? Did Michael play “Romeo”?
First, you can tell this video is real. It does not look in any way ‘fake’. This video is supposed to be from the day of Michael’s death. Just before this moment, Michael was just helicoptered in onto USC grounds, then driven in the coroner’s van to the actual coroner’s building.
Let’s rewind the entire day of Michael’s death of June 25, 2009…
Michael was pronounced ‘dead’ 5 hours after his actual death in his Holmby Hills home. Dr. Conrad Murray, his personal doctor, was reported to have called in Michael’s death 5 hours after he Michael actually quit breathing. During that time, Dr. Conrad had his Las Vegas doctor’s office cleaned out.
Paramedics then came to Michael’s house and tried to resuscitate him, but he was already dead they said. “Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest.” (Who was the UCLA cardiologist? Who were the ‘paramedics’ that arrived at Jackson’s home?)
Once at the UCLA hospital, the staff tried to “resuscitate” him but he was completely unresponsive. So, Michael died hours before the time he was at UCLA hospital. (Who was involved? How many paramedics were around? Did anyone notice any weird behavior at the hospital when Michael arrived? Was the area blocked off? Restricted? Only Michael could get away with everyone participating in keeping distance from the hot scene.)
Michael was then transported in a helicopter from UCLA, to USC in downtown Los Angeles. From the exit of Michael covered in a white sheet, he was rolled out on a gurney, then put into the coroner’s van, the van then drove to the actual L.A. coroner’s building on USC grounds.
I found this video below that shows the coroner’s van driving up to the building, just before it pulls inside of the gated garage. Watch at the last 20 seconds of this video and you can see a group of people (probably paparazzi) run up the ramp and attempt to follow the van to the garage. The video cuts there.
This local news video was filmed just before the unknown camera man (maybe from the group of people chasing the van?) recorded secret footage of Michael’s coroner van driving into the gated garage. [Now watch the first video at the top again to see the correlation] The coroner van gets through the gated garage and stops. You then see a big dark skinned man dressed in black, opens the back door of the van, and a person who resembles Michael Jackson, jumps out the back of the van, and the bodyguard and the possible still living Michael Jackson walk into the building. If you listen closely, you can hear the camera man breathing hard in the video as if he just got done chasing the van with the group of people up to the gated garage. Watch closely at the end of this video, you can barely see the group of people chasing the coroner van.
My point in correlating these two different videos, is to show you that this camera man who got secret footage of a possible ‘alive’ Michael jumping out of the van, just might be on to something big. Looks like evidence to me.
If Michael Jackson did fake his death, he would be the only person who could pull it off in every way. There have been stories of other big stars throughout history that possibly faked their death. Jim Morrison from “The Doors” is rumored to be alive still. Some say he faked his death, and is hiding out because he didn’t want the fame anymore.
Is it possible that Michael wanted to bail out on his “This Is It” tour? Was faking his death a way to get away from everyone and everything? Is there a chance he was unsure about doing his big comeback? Is a ‘fake death’ a better way to get away from it all, rather than living and dealing with everything? Did Jackson’s fake death rake in enough money and satisfy everyone that Jackson owed?
Were there certain people in on his “fake death?” Who did Michael trust enough to tell? Have you seen any reports that ANY of his family members ever saw Michael’s body after his death? Would he tell his mother Katherine? Would he tell Janet?
If we found out that Michael was still alive, would you be mad at him for faking his death? I thought about it, and I first thought “maybe” I would be mad. We had to go through so much pain and suffering, and then saying ‘okay’, we’ve accepted he’s gone. After the Los Angeles memorial, the months of tears and news, the Jackson family sorrow, the blaming of Dr. Conrad Murray possibly killing Michael…Did Dr. Conrad Murray give Michael a “Romeo and Juliet” anesthetic (Propofol) to fake out everyone into thinking he’s dead? Could it be? It’s been a long ride, and we are still rolling through it.
So would I be mad if Michael faked his death? No. He gave us so much joy throughout our lives, I would be ‘okay’ if Michael were really alive and free, doesn’t he deserve it? “Leave Me Alone oh oh…”
I hear Michael Jackson’s doctor; Conrad Murray may be on suicide watch. I am constantly hearing about Michael’s friends, family and fans that are still devastated by his death, I should know, I’m one of them.
It’s been months since Michael’s passing. I’ve been so sad and angry. Then suddenly something hits me like a ton of bricks, literally making me stop in my tracks, it was my first epiphany since I had learned the tragic news of Michael Jackson’s death. I began to ask myself, “Who really killed Michael Jackson? The drugs? His doctors? The enablers? His handlers? Or is there a chance that Michael killed Michael?”
Michael Jackson’s doctors should never have allowed him to take all those drugs, however, the practice of dispensing medication is so prevalent. Let’s face it, doctors are only people thus having a demanding, rich and famous client can be very persuasive when it comes to doing what’s right. Furthermore, even if the doctors stopped dispensing the pharmaceuticals, chances are the addict finds them somewhere else, usually on the dangerous black market.
The people surrounding Michael Jackson should have confronted him and said “Enough!” A little tough love could have benefited Michael greatly, however, if you’ve ever known an addicted person, then you know, that tough love will often falls on deaf ears. When you say “No!” the addict often recoils and often starts seeking new friends, nefarious new enablers, anyone who will say “yes.”
Learning Michael’s doctor is shut in his home, afraid to come to out, scared to answer the phone, and knowing Michael’s people are reeling and floundering in his passing, I suddenly started feeling sorry for the living and moreover, I started getting mad, for the very first time, I was mad at Michael Jackson.
You were so talented, you brought so much joy to so many, and you helped so many in countless ways. My god dear Michael, I know you were in great pain, but why could you not have used your extraordinary powers to try and heal yourself? if not for you, for your friends, family, for your fans? I love you Michael, I have shown you that in every way.
I think the time has come to show support for those of us that are still living. To stop the blaming and start the loving, because love, after all, is the most potent cure, and most importantly; I think you would have wanted it this way Michael.

As we began assembling the footage for the motion picture we realized we captured something extraordinary, unique and very special. It’s a very private, exclusive look into a creative genius’s world. For the first time ever, fans will see Michael as they have never seen him before – this great artist at work.

This film shows a consummate performer working with and guiding singers, dancers, band members, choreographers, special effects creators and countless other creative members of the team as we all assemble this historic concert. I can think of many words to describe Michael as he rehearses for and creates THIS IS IT- inspirational, dynamic, generous, dedicated, loving and the guiding force–you see him as the true architect and driving force of this project – a true master of his craft, the Entertainer of Entertainers. I’m proud of the many years of friendship and creative association I shared with Michael and I’m happy that people will get a chance to see his spirit and drive in action. THIS IS IT may go down as the greatest concert that no one got a chance to see, but with this film, we get a rare portrait of Michael as he prepares for his final curtain call and what I believe was going to be his master work.”
Michael Jackson THIS IS IT will offer Jackson fans and music lovers worldwide a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the performer as he developed, created and rehearsed for his sold-out concerts that would have taken place beginning this summer in London’s O2 Arena. Chronicling the months from April through June, 2009, the film is drawn from more than one hundred hours of behind-the-scenes footage, featuring Jackson rehearsing a number of his songs for the show.

Former child star Mark Lester claims he just might be the father of Michael Jackson’s daughter ‘Paris’. This guy is apparently the godfather of all three of Michael’s children too!
Lester told “News of the World” that Michael offered him to be a sperm donor at the time Michael was married to Debbie Rowe. At the time, Lester complied and gave his sperm without knowing any further details. He says he’s not for sure which of the three children are his, but he does think Paris has similar looks like him. Lester says he is willing to take a paternity test to see if this is true.
Lester told “News of the World” why he has come forward as the father:
“I’m godfather to Michael Jackson’s children. I believe that Paris could be my daughter. I would be willing to take a paternity test.
“Michael Jackson asked me in a private conversation if I’d be willing to donate sperm on his behalf. I was phoned up by a London clinic and I was asked what would be a convenient time for me to attend,” he told the News of the World.
“I made an appointment to go along. Michael was married to Debbie Rowe at the time. She’s the birth mother of the children so I naturally assumed that sperm donation would have gone into Debbie and Debbie would have both the children.”
“Of all Michael Jackson’s children I’d assume that the one that looks most like me is Paris.”
“I’ve come forward now because I have concerns about the welfare and upbringing of the children. There is a contact issue. I really want to remain in contact with those kids and I feel now that this is the only way I can ensure that.”
