Liz Taylor Michael Jackson
TMZ has just heard from Elizabeth Taylor's people who tell us:

"Dame Elizabeth Taylor is too devastated by the passing of her dear friend Michael Jackson to issue a statement at this time."

Taylor, who was a close and dear friend to Jackson for several years, was the one who dubbed him the "King of Pop."

I would like to say a farewell shout out to MJ! Regardless of what many people may think about the man, he
surely has done more good than bad!! I am in my thirties and I can remember growing up on MJ, he was an
icon then just like he is and always will be. He was a great human being and a great man who believed in
humanity and the well being others. If any of you could remember, he brought people together!!! He was be
hind the 'Feed the World' c ampaign, etc. He has a true legacy that no one can touch, for real!! I don't cry
over a superstar, but today I did. People life is too short, don't waste it enjoy it!!! My heartfelt condolences
to the Jackson family and the Fawcett/O'Neal family. Surely they are in my prayers.

Liz could be holding back, due to the fact she maybe an executor to his estate or something more...it is odd that a celeberity friend is summonded to the hospital in the same fashion as a family member. executors have to make big decisions you know...RIP MJ will never be another one like you

SORRY ABOUT LAST COMMENT LIZ, THE FULL STATEMENT SHOULD HAVE READ:

TO THOSE WHO SPEAK NEGATIVELY IN THIS HOUR, DO YOU BELIEVE IN "KARMA" OR GOING TO HELL, OR REAP WHAT YOU SOW? WHAT DID YOUR PARENTS TEACH YOU? WHAT DO YOU TEACH YOUR KIDS?
TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF MICHAEL, JUST REMEMBER HIS SPIRIT, YOU "WILL" GET THRU THIS!
GOD'S GRACE IS OVER YOU ALL!

I hope this gets through because I have tried multiple times...all of Michael Jackson's family and friends should join together and support each other and support his children. Then they should start a charity or special fund in his name. They should pray for strength and put his children first.
