How come no portable defibulator?
Refurbishe...less than $2000. SDCA is the heart problem of our generation.
He had a doctor? Wow, how dumb. One device could have changed the path of the great genius of this musician.
What a great loss.
Irresponsible doctor? Why didn't he KNOW about the life saving machine.

There is no way he is dead:
he is under the witness protection program by superior leaders such as MAFIA.
item1) he was in dept
item2) if the MAFIA offers you a huge i mean a very huge amount of money in addition wiping out all the dept problem and ask you in return to play dead wouldn;t you do it? uhhh i say hell ya he did!

Especially during the current situation when Iran and Mark Stanford's were heating up!

I mean come on the man undergone more than 85 times surgery and he didn't die and you must ask why now>?

when micheal jackson was a live mostly all U.S.A people hated him and didn't want to see him or heard his music on radio or t.v . He couldn't put a concerts any were in U.S.A for long Time . or Produce a new record in U.S.A in music or video . Now when he is Died , Everyone is crying and howling how wonder ful and beautiful person he is . I hope The family will have private funeral for him and a burial him a place that no one can make big money on his grave from tourism . U.S. A people are very funny one day hate you next day if they can make money on you they will love you very much

I've always been a fan of his but if he makes up some bs reason why he cant do the summer tour then I am done with him. You can only stand by a guy like MIchael Jackson for so long. Time to put up or shut up...he better perform.
