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!

Don't like Old Joe, don't like Ronaldo, don't like BBQs, don't like football..... so, I won't be buying. Besides, I'd NEVER trust anything involving the Evil Old Joe.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

Ronaldo is an A*s for doing anything with Joe Jackson; the whole world hates him! If I were looking for a grill, now that I know Joe J nis associated with this one, I wouldn't buy it. The man is despicable! Drove his son to his death then revelled in the new publicity! He is just hateful!

I saw This Is It tonight too, the fact that MJ said "love to all the brothers, and Joseph and Katherine"don't mean he loved Joseph. Remember Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself in order to help you move on with your own life, it is zero about the abuser! MJ has said that Joe J abused him often enough and called him names; besides the man looks like satan himself. Ronaldo should run. Hope when he dies the Jacksons don't expect MJ's estate to bury him. Why don't these people hit up Janet for money too??

Is this what Joe Jackson meant when he said he'd rather have his son alive? Just so he could get more things comped???

The famewhore and penny pincher asked the Hotel Indigo in New York for two comped rooms on the night Michael Jackson's film This Is It premiered.

Seriously? You can't afford 2 rooms for a one night stay?

Joe even tried to tell the hotel that his presence would be good publicity, but they didn't think so and politely refused his offer.

Good!

Stop trying to profit off your dead son for your own personal gain. That includes you Jermaine!

THANKS PEREZ, YOU COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER !!!

BRAVO

Thats one grill I'll never buy. One small thing I can contribute in the effort to stop this man from benefitting in ANY way from MJ's death.

What a pair these two will be. If Ronaldo signed first, he's probably wishing he could get OUT of this contract! Maybe 'catfidh Joe' can recruit La-Toilette & make this a threesome. She can wear the apron like Pamela Anderson in that 'TOOL TIME' show! GRRROOOOVY!

Do you think for one second this sleazy trick would have gotten this 'gig' if not for the death of his son?? Yeah, thats right! Welcome to America where a person can profit from something by ANY MEANS AT ALL! MJ's 'death' is a gift that just keeps on giving for his dear old 'Pappy Joe'! And don't even 'go there' with me about how broken up he is over his sons death. I saw that for myself on the 'red carpet at the BET Awards a few days after MJ's death. I saw how he managed to turn a profit for himself off 'This Is It' after he said they were 'body doubles' & by doing that, completely DISCREDITED HIS SONS EFFORTS SO HE CAN SET HIMSELF UP ALL NICE & PRETTY TO FILE A 'W.D.S.' AGAINST AEG. Afterall Joe, you can't admit your son looked good up there on that stage if you hope to win that suit right. Best to line your own pockets than give your son the credit he deserved but never GOT from you in life. Yeah go ahead, give that imaginary 'MJ imposter' credit for all your sons sweat, blood, & tears he poured into this concert preperation! Glad to see you have your priorities all straight r/e 'family' that you seem so eager to sell down the river in order to keep yourself in the latest 'p!mp-daddy' hats. Whatever gets you thru the nite Joe! No Guilt, Only Love, L-O-V-E, LOVE!
