Ronaldo Gets All Up in Joe Jackson's Grill

11/1/2009 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's the oddest pairing since Liza Minnelli and David Gest got married in 2002: Michael Jackson's father Joe and soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo are now teaming up to sell grills.

Ronaldo Gets All Up in Joe Jackson's Grill

Joe Jackson tells TMZ he's got a stake in a company called GAME ON PRODUCTS and is preparing to peddle soccer ball grills during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Joe says he's flying out to meet Ronaldo at the beginning of December, when the odd couple will shoot TV, magazine and Internet advertisements for the "Goalie Grill."

So, in conclusion: If you've been looking for a BBQ shaped like a soccer ball and endorsed by a world famous athlete and the father of Michael Jackson ... this is the one for you!

as long as they don't associate the grills with world cup 2010 in any way.FIFA have severe branding rules and any mention of the words "world cup" "2010" etc are forbidden for useage outside of the main sponsors. Joe could lose a lot of money in fines alone...

They were in it for the money    

Ol Catfish Devil never lets an opportunity go by, going off on a nice holiday to hawk bar b ques and make money. Least this is the first venture he has done that doesn't profit off Michael. I'll buy meone, and cook some catfish on it along with some fried green t'maters YUM!

Good he can also just stay in South Africa and buy a few more gold African map chains to drape around his ugly neck. Maybe a wild animal will get his smell and have some dinner.
STAY IN AFRICA JOE!

He took his $$$$ from pimping interview on tv and pimping This Is It for Brenden Theaters and invested it in a bbq grill business. I hope you fall flat on your face you sorry bastard. He must have hired an investment agency to help him out since his blueray pimping hos weren't getting him anywhere. All from the bucks that he's making off his dead son.

I saw this is It tonight and I read all this stuff about MJ not liking his father at all. Well, when MJ sings some jackson 5 songs during the this is it rehearsal movie, MJ thanks each and every one of his brothers and says i love you mom and dad. This movie was filmed just months before his death.
When you see this is it look for MJ's thanks to brothers and love to joe when he sings jackson 5 songs.
Who to believe in this life?? DId MJ really Love Joe after all and found forgiveness in Joe after all these years?? probably as MJ was very Godly in the sense of Love and Loving and sharing Love.

Joe Jackson has been a hustler from way back. This man will do anything to make a dollar. His latest venture should not be a surprise to anyone.
