Jackson Gets Posthumous B'Day Gift from Vegas

8/30/2009 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson was honored in Las Vegas last night -- on what would have been his 51st birthday -- with a star on the Palms Casino Resort's Walk of Fame.

Joe Jackson

Robin Leach presented the star to Joe Jackson, Michael's dad, who said, "I wish he was here to see this take place."

Afterwards, Joe had dinner at the N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms and then went up to the Playboy Club. After that, he went to another nightclub called Moon, where the DJ played Michael Jackson songs all night.

I AGREE EVERYONE IS PRAISING HIM NOW THAT HE IS DEAD. BUT WHERE WAS EVERYONE AT WHEN HE WAS GOING THROUGH THE COURT TRIALS FOR CHILD MELOSTATION. NO ONE WAS THERE EVERYONE WAS LOOKING DOWN ON HIM. AND I KNOW WHY, WHAT HE WAS ACCUSED OF WAS WRONG. BUT NOW THAT HE IS GONE MAY HE R.I.P EVERYONE IS PRAISING HIM AND TRYING TO BENEFIT FROM HIS DEATH. THATS WRONG, SOLVE THE REASON FOR HIS DEATH AND LET HIM BE

He needs to sit his old ass down somewhere. I think the Jackson clan need to gather together to admit him to a nursing facility. I think ole Joe is sufferng from Alzheimers and dementia.

The Jehovah Witnesses I know don't frequent Las Vegas nightclubs.

Or any night clubs.

There's just something right about all of this... Where were all these people when Michael needed support during his trial? Now they are honoring him left and right,in playing his music all night long. Papa Joe is getting all this attention. I don't think he should be in the limelight at this point. People are still upset at him for how he treated Michael and for the dumb things he continues to say. Where is Katherine in all of this? If it's about Honoring Michael don't you think they should both be there? Oh...and Michael hasn't been buried yet, that right!
Anybody advising this family?

Without the 50% ownership he acquired in the Beatles catalog, MJ would have died a pauper. His own musical output was never worth anywhere near the value of the catalog he later bought.

Kooky pookie is an idiot. Joe knows what really happened between him and his son. He will have to live with his regrets. Meanwhile, we have lost an incredible talent.
