This whole thing is sickening to me. FIrst you have Tohme Tohme, who was a partner, with Michael back in April...when there was to be an auction...to sell Micheals. things. Michael apparantly wanted a few things back, and had to sue to get them back,...but Tohme Tohme had access to the money?..Then, I heard that the day after Michael was found passed away, that the Auction went on and sold for over 70,000.00 more than if Michael was alive? Is this TRUE TMZ?
Then you have a doctor who was there for an hour before calling the paramedics?
Then you have Michaels joining the Nation of Islam in Nov. of 2008?
I am already distraught but this is really becoming a tangled web! Thanks to TMZ for keeping us informed!

Just a few more weeks to let the facts surface clearer than the complexion on a child molester.

He was probably the biggest talent ever...he will live in his fans' hearts forever and so many of us will choose to remember him as a winner,a wonderful singer and an amazing dancer, this is the way he would want us to remember him...i'm sure...
Rest in peace Michael,you will be missed.

Well, why did the doctor work on him for 25 minutes before calling 911. After a few minutes, the call should have been made immediately. Instead, he waited 25 minutes, Michael had already died before they made the call. Even if the cause was an overdose, this is not right for what the doctor did; you call 911 immediately....Watch out for that doctor!

Why don't you wait for the final results? Who gives a damn who's first? Why don't work on being right?

Has the man been identified that made the 911 call to the police on the day that Michael died?

I have been reading that the people surrounding MJ did not care "if" he ate and did not do anything to get him to curtail use of prescription drugs. If Michael Jackson was astute enough to write music, perform, travel, and have a family, don't you think he should be RESPONSIBLE enough to eat??? Each one of us needs to accept responsibility for how we live. At the time that he turned himself into the police a few years regarding the child molestation case, the police file stated that MJ was 5'11" tall and ONLY weighed 120 pounds.

Take one malnourished individual, add drugs, and you have a formula for failure. However, the choices MJ made were uniquely his own. Once he became a parent to three children of his own, MJ needed to clean up his act. He could have made different choices. Parading his children around with Halloween masks does not connote healthy behavior for MJ ... or ... the three children. There are ways to protect your children that do not require dressing them up like circus freaks!!

i really am upset that some of you can still BELIEVE that he would harm a child, when 1: He has children himself 2: He was STILL a child himself 3: He was abused as a child and 4: He was acquitted of child molestation!!! Your the ones who deserve to die not Michael. RIP to the GREATEST (Not a Child Abuser, but a child himself.)

No matter what we thought of Michael Jackson,bad or good! I think we should all wait for the official reports to come in, as to the cause of his death! he was only 50 yrs. old. He contributed so much to the music scene. Also whether we believe he was a pedophile or not he was aquitted of all charges!

the child molestation charges were all fabrications concocted by money hungry villians in the form of the parents of those 2 boys who lied about Michael doing things to or with them. Its truth that the kids were lying, All you haters are too stupid to realize this. I bet you are the same people who killed Jesus or would have been there cheering on his death.
