thats true money doesn't make you all that but im just saying considereing all the good he did in the world and all the people's lives he changed counts for something. Not many celebraties these days care about anybody but themselves! Michael met this dying kid overseas and asked what what wrong with him? They said he needed an organ transplant otherwise he would die. Michael bought/found the lil kid an organ and saved his life. I just don't like how ppl find it so easy to judge and point fingers when they don't even know the facts. No wonder Michael didn't like to open up because everybody likes to twist and turn his words!

If Michael was touching/molesting those kids and it happind on numerous occasions why did the boys keep coming back and hanging out with him? It seems to me that if someone was doing something to me that I didn't like I would get the hell out of there and NEVER come back. I think they were both just out to get his money. R.I. P MICHAEL we love you!!!

WELL,well,well....the pedophiles are still fuming that Michael is not and has never been one of them. That's why they come to these forums to call him a pedophile, his so called victim has come forward with the truth,that Michael never touched him and the others were proven to be liers because of their past history of trying to extort money in the same manner from other celebs. Now the real pedophiles want to use the addict wagon to jump on as well. The man suffered second and third degree burns when he was younger, why do you think they are looking at these doctors so closely. Michael went into rehab himself trying to get away from the pain killers,but his trusted doctors kept feeding him drugs to keep getting that money. It's not like he up and decided to get on drugs. But you don't care about that , you like posting to show what mindless pathetic idiots you are...good job ! We see it.

I heard about all these new deals Branca and McClain are working on for Michael Jackson's estate what an awesome job they are doing they need to keep it up that is for sure..... The kids will profit the most from the rehearsal footage just really sad that they never got to see their daddy onstage doing what he loved... I think it sucks how he is going to be buried in an unmarked grave though... That is just his momma pulling her weight I mean geez she isn't even gonna let his babies aatend the burial I MEAN COME ONNNNN

Ok #8 who commented: "A movie about a Pedophile. What a strange world we live in."

You are right, what a strange world we live in. it is even stranger to know that there are still stupid people like you in the world who don't read or have a clue.

MJ IS NOT A Pedophile!! EVERYONE, I MEAN EVERYONE KNOWS THIS BY NOW. UNLESS YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK AND DON'T KNOW THAT JORDAN CHANDLER CONFESSED THAT NOTHING HAPPENED, THEN YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE.

MOST EVERYONE KNOWS AS WELL, THAT MICHAEL JACKSON DID NOT WANT TO PAY OUT ANY SETTLEMENT AT ALL. IT WAS NOT HIS CHOICE. HE FLIPPED OUT AND WAS SCREAMING HIS HEAD OFF. HIS INSURANCE COMPANY AND HIS ATTORNEYS BEGGED HIM TO SETTLE, AND THEY WERE GOING TO SETTLE WITH OR WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION.

MICHAEL VERY WELL KNEW HOW THIS WOULD LOOK. BUT HIS ATTORNEYS ADVISED HIM BECAUSE THE TRIAL COULD TAKE YEARS AND THAT WOULD COST HIM FAR MORE MONEY NOT BEING ABLE TO DO TOURS BECAUSE OF A TRIAL AND THEREFORE LOSE FAR MORE MILLIONS. THERE HAVE BENN THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN AND NOBODY HAS MADE THESE TYPE OF CLAIMS. ARE YOU KIDDING ME PEOPLE. I HAVE SOME INFORMATION THAT THIS IS TRUE AND VERY MUCH THE CASE.

PEOPLE CAN ALSO CHECK ON YOUTUBE AND HEAR THE TAPE RECORDING FROM THE BOY'S FATHER EVAN CHANDLER, PRETTY MUCH SAYING THAT HE ONLY CARES ABOUT GETTING BACK AT MICHAEL AND HIS MONEY. EVAN CHANDLER IS A SICK PERSON. HE WANTED A LOAN FROM MICHAEL TO DO HIS SCREENWRITING AND WHEN MICHAEL REFUSED TO GIVE HIM A LOAN, HE SET A DIFFERENT PLAN IN MOTION.

IF MICHAEL HAD GIVEN HIM THIS LOAN, WE WOULD HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ANY ABUSE AND MAYBE HE WOULD HAVE STOPPED ALL THE PAIN KILLERS HE WAS ON. JORDAN CHANDLER KILLED MICHAEL JACKSON AND DON'T BE SURPRISED IF JORDAN COMMITS SUICIDE OVER THIS. I KNOW IT WILL CATCH UP WITH HIM.

i think a movie should be made to make everyone epecially the nonbelievers not only what a phenominal songwriter, singer, dancer and performer michael jackon was and always will be as noone will urpass michael jackon but also about his great humanitarianism, noone will ever come close to what michael has done for the entire world!!!! as far as james and jackschitts comments gogle jordan chandler and see how he admits it was a setup for money and he is so sorry he didnt get to apolgize to michael jackson and will never know if michael could ever forgive him!!!
