Photog: MJ-Obsessed Attackers Waited for Me

11/24/2009 5:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The photographer who says he was attacked by angry Michael Jackson fans is finally telling his side of the story -- claiming his attackers were "laying in wait."

Ed Frommer: Click to watch
The photog, Ed Frommer, claims he was "jabbed" with a baseball bat several times by three MJ fans over a defamation lawsuit he filed against Debbie Rowe. The lawsuit stems from an encounter between Frommer and Rowe that went down in front of a Chinese food restaurant back in July.

Photog: MJ-Obsessed Attackers Waited for MeAs we first reported, Frommer claims three men pulled him out of his car in Lancaster, Ca and began screaming "leave Debbie alone" -- while shoving a bat in his chest.

Frommer doesn't think Debbie put the men up to it -- but he warns he's taken "precautions" to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Man brought back from the dead after 47 minutes without a heartbeat.

Who knows whether Michael could have been saved if jerkface Murray would have IMMEDIATELY called 911, as a normal person would have, let alone a doctor. Who knows what would have happened it he had done cpr in the correct fashion.

Interesting story. They did 4500 chest compressions and 8 zaps with defibrillator.

If nothing else (and there's a LOT else), Murray should go to prison for letting so much time lapse before calling 911.
Here's the link.

This...is too much...
It's bad enough to have to endure a weekend filled with media on The "Twice Light" Movie and now this (the lengths some people will go to for escapism is baffling.) It's completely ridiculous that anyone would think Michael's fans would do something this crazy. At least I would hope not. Yes, there's times when I would love to put a good scare into the paps and media (even some people on these threads) for the malicious and unfair way they talk about my Michael. But I would never do this because although the way I feel about Michael translates into being a fan, I am far from FANATIC--that is to say, I would never exhibit the behavior of a fanatic: stalking someone, screaming like a banshee at their concerts, fainting at the sight of them or convincing myself that the celebrity is my lover, etc. Because these things are too often associated with fan-dom, I hate to use that word--especially when it comes to Michael because for me it goes way deeper than that. Like many, I grew up with him and his music as the soundtrack to my life. But there have been twists and turns--I have a huge catalog of music I've loved over the years of my life with Michael being a front runner because I loved his music unconditionally. Easy because it's so multi-faceted and rich in textures and emotions. I just recently took the "This Is It" cd out of my car cd player and put in the original "Thriller" cd. On it I rediscovered "Baby be Mine", a song that highlights the range and beauty of Michael's voice. It's as if when listening, you can feel what he's feeling--there's such a purity and truth coming through his high pitched vocals. Listen to it again and you'll know what I mean. Girls will feel like he's speaking directly to them, and guys will be able to totally relate to his game and swagger on this song. I love, love, L-O-V-E it!!!
Ahhhhh...back to reality...
This guy is a total idiot who knows full well that those guys were probably sent by Debbie or some other celebrity he's irritated. It has NOTHING to do with Michael other than him trying to capitalize on Michael's hotness right now. I doubt it even happened and if it did, he act like he's got sense and file a police report...if that's even possible!

Peace--MICHAEL/ILUVU2INFINITY

This doesn't surprise me. Judging by those Jacko Wackos who post on this web site, I'd say all of MJ's fans are deranged and violent.

Why are these people being called MJ fans when they aren't defending MJ in any way. They are Debbie Rowe fans.

MissingMJ    

I think Debbie gets a bad rap from a lot of MJ fans. It seems they had their disagreements as most divorced people do. Even if you believe the marriage was just for the kids somewhere there was at the very least a friendship that may have went wrong. I don't know what happened between Michael and Debbie. Here is what I do know, Debbie has never been in the tabloids bashing Michael. That I know of I haven't read any stories she has sold about Michael or his life, even after his death. She did give him two beautiful children,and it doesn't seem like she did it for her 15 minutes of fame. Even if she did get paid I know a lot of woman that wouldn't have done that, or would have done it just to force themselves into Michael's life, or would have went for the fame. To me it seems like in her own way Debbie really did care for Michael and was loyal to him. I also know some say it wasn't loyalty, but a confidentiality agreement, but remember if that were the case Debbie could have said anything horrible she wanted about Michael when she was called to court during the 2005 trial to testify against Michael and she said nothing but good things about him. I'm not a Debbie "fan". I just think what was between her and Michael was just that between her and Michael. I think the Papz should leave this woman alone and let her live her life. Now as for this story. Okay, let me get this straight, three people were so fanatic that they got together and made a plan to wait on this man to leave a "location", They risked a car wreck running a red light, they actually risked a car wreck for a second time making him pull off the side of the road, they brought a wooden bat (maybe they were on their way to an afternoon game of ball?), and all they did was poke him and tell him to leave Debbie Rowe alone? I agree with the other comments here MJ fans wouldn't waste their time on this man. Debbie Rowe can defiantly take care of herself. If there were rabid MJ fans out there (I'm sure there are a few, but the majority are not) why would they waste their time on this Photographer and not go after Dr. Murray? Sorry I don't believe it. I think this photographer is just looking for some time on the other side of the camera and a payday from Debbie via the lawsuit.

Watching Carefully From Europe    




Does this scenario NOT seem deceitfully odd? There's that ugly subliminal media messaging again. Can no one see the storyline being created? Someone recently posted something very interesting which went along these lines:


"Why would Michael Vick be sentenced to 2 years prison for a dog fight, yet Murray is released to return to work after admitting to administering Propofol to MJ which allegedly killed him?"


Let's put on those thinking caps shall we. Here are the questions we should be asking ourselves:

1) Has Murray been released in hopes that a "crazed" fan will do something to him?

2) Has he been released because something WILL happen to him and a "crazed" fan will be blamed for it?

3) Or will something happen to him by someone paid to pose as a "crazed" fan?


Murray is a pansy, so who's to say that another pansy couldn't be paid to eliminate him? Murray vowed that the truth would be revealed in his Youtube video, but someone doesn't want that truth to be exposed. There's much more to this story. The fans are not being vilified for no reason. Considering the magnitude of this case, why would Murray be allowed to resume his daily activities? I encourage everyone to watch the chain of events as they unfold.

And again:

TURN OFF YOUR MASS MEDIA RECEPTORS AND THINK FOR YOURSELVS!!!!!!!!!
