Macaulay Culkin Is NOT Blanket’s Father

Macaulay Culkin Is NOT Blanket’s Father


The Sun reported that Macaulay Culkin is Michael Jackson’s son Blanket’s father but according to a rep for Macaulay said “too preposterous for us to even acknowledge”.

As reported by The Sun:

The Home Alone film star is said to have donated sperm to help Jacko create his seven-year-old offspring – real name Prince Michael II – with an unknown surrogate mum.

The two celebrities became firm friends after Culkin, now 29, shot to fame as a child in the 1990 box office smash.

One source said: “It is well known Jackson and Macaulay shared a unique bond.

“Now rumours are spreading like wildfire that Macaulay, who Jackson nicknamed Mack, is actually Blanket’s biological dad.”

Direct Link Between Dr. Conrad Murray And Propofol

Direct Link Between Dr. Conrad Murray And Propofol


There is a direct link between Dr. Conrad Murray and Propofol at least in part by what is detailed in the search warrant that TMZ has obtained.

As reported by TMZ:

We’ve obtained the search warrant used to raid the Las Vegas pharmacy that Dr. Conrad Murray has used in the past, and there appears to be a direct link between the doctor and Propofol … and there may be a link to Michael Jackson as well.

The documents show authorities were looking for credit card receipts and other docs related to drugs purchased by Dr. Murray on May 12, 2009. The warrant then mentions specific vials of Propofol manufactured by Teva and Hospira, Inc.

We’ve already reported the LAPD found Propofol manufactured by Teva at Jackson’s house.

And authorities were looking for FedEx records relating to “the purchase, transfer, receiving, ordering, delivery and storage of Propofol to Dr. Conrad Murray.”

Short story … it looks like authorities believe they know where and when the Propofol that killed Jackson was purchased.

DEA Raids Michael Jackson’s Doctor’s Office

DEA Raids Michael Jackson’s Doctor’s Office


Occording to TMZ, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), LAPD detectives and members of the Houston Police Department executed a search warrant today on the Houston office of Dr. Conrad Murray. Dr. Murray is one of several doctors the Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies are investigating as they try to determine the circumstance of Jackson’s death.

Statement from attorney Edward Chernoff:

“We can confirm that a search warrant was executed today on Dr. Murray’s offices in Houston Texas,” Chernoff said in a statement. “We reviewed the warrant and remained on the premises while the search was being executed. The search was conducted by members of the DEA, two Robbery-Homicide detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department and Houston Police officers. The search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offense of manslaughter. Law enforcement concluded their search around 12:30 p.m., and left with a forensic image of a business computer hard drive and 21 documents. None of the documents taken had previously been requested by law enforcement or the L.A. Coroner’s office.”

Tito Jackson on Michael Jackson

Tito Jackson on Michael Jackson


As reported by Mirror and summarized by Perez Hitlon:

On Michael’s secret habit:
“I never saw him on drugs. Not once. He deliberately did it away from us. He didn’t want his family to know anything about that part of him. He did almost everything in his power to make sure we didn’t know.”

On the intervention:
“We had to act. It was me, my sisters Janet, Rebbie and La Toya and my brothers, Jackie and Randy. We bust right into the house and he was surprised to see us to say the least. We went into one of his private rooms and had a discussion with him. Some of us were crying. We kept asking him if it was true what we had heard that he was using drugs. He kept denying it. He said we were over-reacting. We also spoke to a doctor and he assured us it was not the situation. He said he was there to make sure Michael was healthy.

On his skepticism:
“We didn’t know what to believe. We didn’t take what Michael said as the truth. We talked about it again and again for hours but we just couldn’t get through to him. After that occasion we tried many times but his team of people just shut us out, they would not let us close. They literally shut us out. I don’t know if they were just doing their job or if it they were part of some kind of conspiracy.I do know that Michael would say to them ‘I don’t care who it is, don’t let anybody on my property if they haven’t called first’.”

On the pop star’s handlers:
“In the first few intervention attempts his staff and security would not let us on the property.
They would block the road into Neverland with other vehicles so we couldn’t drive in, all kinds of crazy things. I don’t know whose instructions those were but that’s what happened. I went up there twice trying to get through before we finally did.

On the start of Michael’s addiction:
“He had been taking pain medicine because of the burns to his scalp and evidently he got some type of addiction from it. I understood he had got help for that addiction and after that I was always told he was doing ok. Before the intervention attempt I would never go to him and say ‘Are you still doing it?’ I would just say ‘Are you sure you’re fine?’ He’d say ‘I’m fine, TT’. If he said he was ok I believed him. He knew what I meant, he knew I was talking about drugs.

On LeToya’s allegations that her brother was murdered:
“I don’t know whether he was killed or not. But I would say that sometimes he had people around him that were not in his best interests. Whether his death was an accident or whether it was deliberate, something has gone on and we need to get to the bottom of it.”

On plastic surgery:
“Michael’s plastic surgery started around 1979, when he went solo. It was just something that a lot of entertainers were doing at the time.It started with just an alteration of his nose. He never told me why, but I think he thought it would improve his looks. It wasn’t a big deal having lip jobs, nose jobs or butt implants, especially living in California. He was trying to make himself attractive to himself. We all look at ourselves different. Everyone has a personal preference.

Weird Al Yankovic On Michael Jackson

Weird Al Yankovic On Michael Jackson


Weird Al “covered” Michael Jackson’s Beat It (as Eat It) and Bad (as Fat) and had this to say to Rolling Stone:

The first time around I pursued Michael Jackson about a song parody, it was a shot in the dark. We’re talking about the most popular and famous person in the known universe, and here I was, this goofy comedy songwriter. He not only returned our phone calls, but he approved it. He thought it was a funny idea. Then when we did the second parody, “Fat,” he was nice enough to let us use his subway set for the video, so he’s always been very supportive.

The first time I met him in person was long after I had gotten permission to do “Eat It” back in 1984. There’s a contract somewhere that has his signature next to mine, proving that we are the co-writers of “Eat It,” which is surrealistic in and of itself. The first time I actually ran into him was backstage at one of his concerts, this was maybe four years later, when Even Worse came out with my second parody, “Fat.” I went backstage, and he was seeing a lot of people, but I brought along a gold record of Even Worse to present to him, and he was very gracious and thanked me for it and said some nice things. After the fact, I thought, “That’s probably the last thing Michael Jackson needs, another gold record for his storage locker.” Seeing him in person was amazing, it was otherworldly. He was and continues to be so iconic, it’s hard to even conceive of him as a human being. He always was bigger than life.

Our second meeting was a TV show taping. He was performing “Black or White,” and I remember Slash was onstage and I talked to [Michael] briefly afterwards. He told me he would play my movie, UHF, for his friends at Neverland Ranch, and he was very soft-spoken, very quiet, but always very friendly to me.

I considered parodying “Black or White” around that time. Michael wasn’t quite so into it, because he thought “Black or White” was more of a message song, and he didn’t feel as comfortable with a parody of that one, which I completely understood, and in a way, he did me a huge favor, because I was already getting pegged as the guy who did Michael Jackson parodies, and because he wasn’t so into it, I decided to go with Nirvana, which wound up revitalizing my career. I don?t know what kind of career I would have today if it hadn’t been for Michael Jackson. In a very real sense, he jump-started my career. “Eat It” basically changed me from an unknown into a guy that got recognized at Burger King.

Paul McCartney Sets Record Straight About Beatles Collection

Paul McCartney Sets Record Straight About Beatles Collection


It was reported that Michael Jackson was leaving the Beatles catalog to Paul McCartney in his will. The other rumor was that Paul McCartney was upset that Michael did not leave the Beatles catalog to him.

Well, according to Paul McCartney, both are false and had this to say on his website:

Some time ago, the media came up with the idea that Michael Jackson was going to leave his share in the Beatles songs to me in his will which was completely made up and something I didn’t believe for a second.

Now the report is that I am devastated to find that he didn’t leave the songs to me. This is completely untrue. I had not thought for one minute that the original report was true and therefore, the report that I’m devastated is also totally false, so don’t believe everything you read folks!

In fact, though Michael and I drifted apart over the years, we never really fell out, and I have fond memories of our time together.

At times like this, the press do tend to make things up, so occasionally, I feel the need to put the record straight.

Paul

Diana Ross Does Not Want Michael Jackson’s Kids

Diana Ross Does Not Want Michael Jackson’s Kids


As reported by The National Enquirer:

A shocked Diana Ross doesn’t want to be stand-by mom to the Jacko Brood, sources say.

A very surprised Diana Ross was shocked when she was named in Michael Jackson’s will as back up guardian to the late singer’s 3 children, Prince, Paris and Blanket in the event of his mother Katherine’s death, Fox News reported.

While the former Supremes star and the late entertainer share a very special relationship dating back 40 years to when Motown prexy Berry Gordy anointed her as “official discoverer of the Jackson Five” it appears the diva wants no part of Wacko’s offspring.

According to FoxNews.com, Diana’s son Evan Ross, 20 and his GF were chatting about the Jacko will at Diddy’s Fourth of July shindig in Los Angeles presented by Starbuck’s ice cream.

Sources told Fox that the couple told pals Diana had no idea she was named secondary caregiver and wasn’t too thrilled about being saddled with the responsibility seemingly out of nowhere.

This seems to be completely false. This  is the statement read by Smokey Robinson during the Michael Jackson memorial service at Staples Center from Diana Ross:

I want you to know, even though I am not there at the Staples Center, I am there in my heart. I’ve decided to pause and be silent. This feels right for me.

Michael was a personal love of mine, a treasured part of my world, part of the fabric of my life, and the way that I can’t seem to find words to express. Michael wanted me to be there for his children, and I will be there if they ever need me.

I hope today brings closure for all those who loved him. Thank you, Katherine and Joe, for sharing your son with the world and with me. I send my love and condolences to the Jackson family.

Carrie Fisher On Michael Jackson

Carrie Fisher On Michael Jackson


Carrie Fisher had this to say about Michael Jackson on her blog:

Hello to one and all!

Tis I! Your intermittent blogmeister, back to provide you with inside information on The Late Michael Jackson. I was friendly with Michael. I believe that he considered us to be friends.

Micheal Jackson reads Carrie Fisher's Whishul Drinking

Micheal Jackson reading Carrie Fisher’s Whishul Drinking

I visited him over the Christmas holiday at that weirdly expensive rental home somewhere here in Southern Cal. What’s odd is that I see fans laying flowers in front of homes that I don’t think Michael ever lived in. But then this whole scene is odd.

Here’s the thing though—–I saw Michael multiple times with his children and thought that he was a very good father. Not only based on seeing him with his children, but also based on his children themselves. They are very well behaved, respectful children, who seemed content in Michael’s company. I mean, I doubt if Michael cooked for them or parented them in ways that might be considered conventional, but you could see how much he loved them and how much they loved him. I do NOT believe that Michael did anything untoward to not only his children, but to any other child. He was a child himself. I never in any way viewed him as someone who was capable of doing what they accused him of doing. He was devoted to his family and doted on them. In a town where you more often see children of celebrities with their nannys and in the care of others, I never saw anything like that with Michael and his children. I would say he was a hands on parent, but with the press and some of the public being as they are, I wouldn’t want to say anything that could be interpreted in any way other than the loving scene that I observed between his 3 children and himself.

And I stand to gain nothing in stating this.

Michael was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever encountered. He was generous and polite. And where you might expect to see children that were pampered and spoiled, his children showed none of this.

I don’t believe that Arnie Klein is the father of these children. Why would he do that? He might as well just adopt 3 kids, rather than arrange a situaion where he was not the father. I realize these children don’t resemble him mightily, but I there must be some other explanation other than someone else fathered these children. Michael was eccentric, no doubt. But he was no fool.

My favorite news program that I’ve seen regarding this whole scene is a program that asked the question, “Are there too many programs on Michael’s death and who will gain custody of his children…….”

Anyway, there you have it. For now. I’ll let you know of any other insights I am privy to as we go along. If I can.

Aside from that, I’m fine. (whatever that means!) Tomorrow we go to Berkeley to do my show for two weeks to prepare for Broadway. Perhaps I will seek custody of Michaels children, depending on how things develop………

Unless you have some other suggestions. Everyone else seems to want to weigh in on it……..

Marry me,
Carrie
