Of course, more jokes about a dead man. How about an unpaid mortgage of Nicolas Cage? or taxes owed by Wesley Snipes, Damon Dash, Joe Francis, Willie Nelson, Annie Leibovitz...

justice is mine says the lord    

First off...that Michael Jackson comment was uncalled for and the cheapest of shots..Theres going to be a huge bonfire of all the tabloid medias horrible vile products, in honor of MJs birtday this coming August. So far I hadnt listed TMZ on the list of those to toss on the fire...but you are pushin it. NOW MICHAEL PHELPS...
HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU FORGET TO PAY YOUR TAXES WHEN YOU MAKE THAT KIND OF MONEY. ITS MORE LIKE HE THOUGHT HE COULD GET AWAY WITH IT SO HE JUST DIDNT BOTHER. I THOUGHT THAT PEOPLE LIKE HIM WOULD HAVE AN ACCOUNTANT OR BUSINESS MANAGER THAT WOULD HAVE DONE IT FOR HIM. SOMEONE NEEDS TO MAKE HIM WRITE ON A BLACK BOARD 500 TIMES....THIS SENTENCE....".TWO THINGS ARE A SURE THING IN LIFE...DEATH AND TAXES.PAY THEM"
MAYBE THEN

Like he does his own taxes. His accountant missed some of his earnings in a state Phelps does not live in. It happens.

Hey Scott,
I am white and even if I were black I made fun of Damon Dash and Wesley Snipes, too, my friend.

Maybe these idiots should start paying attention to who they hire and sit in on some of the accounting sessions. Pleading ignorance does not work for me. Oh, it's all my accountants fault, oh, I had no idea I owed taxes: and why don't you? If you don't know all the properties you own, or states you have conducted business in, products you are reaping profits off of or whatEVER, then you officially are in over your head.

In these difficult times, I find it hard to sympathize with these overpaid celebutards and athletes. Kudos for parlaying a sports career into megamillions but don't expect me to cry for you when you can't keep track of your millions.

His account made an error and I don't remember TMZ reporting that al franken owed taxes in multiple states and didn't pay until he ran for senate!!! I know I live in mn and I find it funny that their so many others but you choose to keep running after the same people and same stories... how about the story about barney frank and his gay lover growing pot in the backyard and barney gets off without even a ticket but his lover is charged and his defense is " is not an outdoors man so I don't know what pot looks like".....go after the good stories

Stop Milking his name    

TMZ, Michael Jackson never had a lien put against him for not paying his taxes. so why is his name appearing in your story? so you can get more hits?

obviously, MJ's name is behind your recent online reader's spike. Therefore, you feel the need to put his name in every silly story hoping his numerous fans will keep coming back to defend his name.
well, I have news for you....we have started to move on. Not from MJ, but from your petty stories. I'm sure you've already knew...for the number of readers sharply & steadfastly dropping.
