Children Services Back to the Jackson House

3/4/2010 1:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The social workers from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are coming back to the Jackson family compound in Encino, CA today to wrap up their investigation over the stun gun incident.

Children Services Back to the Jackson House
We're told one of the employees has not been at the home during the last two days to be interviewed by DCFS social workers -- so they will talk to that employee today.

As we first reported, one if the issues DCFS has isolated is the use of the Internet by the eight minors living in the home. We broke the story that Jermaine Jackson's 13-year-old son Jaafar Jackson used the Internet to purchase a stun gun.

DCFS, we're told, has not decided what additional action, if any, will be taken.

OMG!!! :( Terrible. I want MJ's three children to be safe. They are not used to that kind of environnement at all. That's exactly what Michael wanted them to be away from. What a mess!!! I like Katherine but it's way too difficult for someone her age to take charge of eight children. She can raise MJ's three kids but that's it!!!! MJ's kids are good mannered so it'd be not that hard for her to take care of them. I'm woried the other cousins be bad influences to them. It'd be so sad that MJ's children lose their good manners to copy the other cousins, to "fit" in the group. Parental supervision is very needed!!!

Michael Jackson's Nanny: Grace Is Gone

The world of Michael Jackson is in the usual chaos this week, as the pop singer faces foreclosure on his Neverland Ranch for $23 million secured by Fortress Investments.

Several things have happened all at once. Out in the cold are publicist/manager Raymone Bain, who denies it to anyone who asks. But also apparently out, or iced for the moment, is nanny Grace Rwaramba.

"She’s sick, she’s got something, and Michael hates germs," says a source. "So Grace is out. She’s over at her luxury condo in Las Vegas while Michael and his kids remain at the Palms casino."

Jackson, flush with a little cash since his recent refinancing, is said to be shopping for a Vegas home. This might seem strange since his own home, Neverland, is about to be foreclosed on. But the word is that grocery store magnate Ron Burkle may have interceded with Fortress and gotten his old friend an extension. Calls to Burkle Monday were not returned.

Believe it or not, the other new name in the Jackson mix is none other than Dieter Wiesner. You may recall the former German manager was part of Jackson’s 2003-2005 child molestation/conspiracy trial/scandal. He was replaced by the Nation of Islam, then sued Jackson for millions.

Jackson recently paid him about $2 million after a short trial and many depositions. You’d think Jackson would be done with Wiesner, but I’m told the singer misses him and wants him back. (Ooh ooh baby, wants him back.)

With the much-despised Grace and Raymone gone, the question is: Who’s managing Jackson? No one seems to know, which means the singer’s possible appearance at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards is highly suspect. Recent reports that he would join Kanye West, Akon and to perform remixes of "Thriller" on the Grammy show sounded good, but without a manager, Jackson is unlikely to show up or do anything productive.

And what about Neverland? Even with Burkle’s intervention, the big finale is drawing near if no one comes up with the money.

As for the big 25th anniversary edition of "Thriller" that’s coming Feb. 12 — and could certainly be promoted on the Grammys two nights earlier: Preorders on put it at a ho-hum No. 200. The available version of "Thriller," reissued in 2001, is holding tight around No. 691.,2933,326209,00.html

MJ had vitiligo which turned his skin white,he didn't do it by choice! He used creams to even out his skin tone to be all one color! They are MJs! You spew the same BS on every MJ board,get over it and move on!

Posted at 1:13PM on Mar 4th 2010 by the truth is

Why don't YOU get over it and move on?
It's never been proven he had vitiligo. Just because MJ and Arnold Klein said it does not make it true. His own family members have said he did NOT have vitiligo. Klein's medical records came up missing when he was asked by the authorities to produce them during an investigation. Jermaine had a song out in the past entitled "Word to the Badd", the lyrics of which were criticizing Michael for lightening his skin. LaToya has said he lightened his skin.

raggmopp28 is entitled to his opinion.

Let other state their opinions, and you can state your opinion without insulting people by saying "you spew bs" or "get over it".
Also this:

Excessive use of bleaching creams can cause vitiligo like patches.


I think a lot of what you said rings true. I came across another post last week that seems to lend itself to your theory. I've pasted it below & included a link to the original post. (FYI.. I've been trying to find out who this "MusicGal" person - they were also original source who alerted the media about the Paul Anka/MJ "This Is It" song screw up story a few months back that TMZ & others ran. So far I have been able to confirm a lot of what he/she have said.) I'd be interested to hear what you think....

I echo your sentiments @Music Expert, however, I am not willing to be nearly as polite as you. For as long as I’ve been around this business it never ceases to amaze me the crap the public will buy into in the name of “fandom.” To borrow a line from Music Expert: “I’m a bit tired of you Michael lovers who believe anyone who doesn’t say nothing but positive things about MJ is a traitor.”

I knew MJ & I know Q. MJ was without question one of – if not the – greatest entertainer to grace the stage. His artistry, dedication and discipline were awe inspiring. But for as sweet and kind as he could be off stage, he could also be a real SOB. Like many great artist in history MJ was equal parts genius and madness. You may not like it when someone (like Roger Friedman) says “Michael… was known for being petty and disloyal…“ but just because you choose not to believe something & it does not fit into your fantasy does not make it any less true. MJ would stab you in the back quicker than anyone if it meant getting his way -> don’t doubt it. MJ also had a terrible habit of taking credit for others work.

Quincy Jones is a good man. How dare anyone criticize him for expressing the truth about his relationship with MJ when those of you who don’t know ANY of the parties involved spend an exorbitant amount of time posting your comments and opinions. Good, bad, ugly or indifferent, it does not mean he mourns MJ’s loss any less. In the end MJ was horrible in his treatment of Q. Publicly MJ always took MORE than half of the credit for their – or any of his – professional collaborations. MJ went off the deep end in EVERY aspect of his life and Q – who is no stranger to crazy himself at times – tried to reign him in, but there was no talking to MJ, it was his way or the highway. And for those of you who want to bash Q for his comments about MJ’s changing skin color – HERE’S ANOTHER FACT: HE’S 100% RIGHT. MJ did not want to be Black. The man went to great lengths to make sure his own children would not be Black. He went out of his way to divorce himself personally from the Black community & was only Black when he felt it would serve his purpose (think trial) – or they offered him an award. (True story

.) He didn’t care if you were Black, he did not dislike all Black people, HE just did not want to be Black. It’s a fact. I say this as an African American who was at first horrified by, and later pitied MJ. MJ didn’t find Black beautiful or attractive, & he certainly felt that Blacks were intellectually inferior in a majority areas especially in business. Who knows how or why he was this way. MJ was using skin bleaching creams for years, YEARS – long before the public caught on – and everyone around him knew it. (So did LaToya by the way – or do you all think she has just gotten lighter due to age?) This info has even been confirmed (publicly) by numerous sources over the years, including former relatives, co-workers, employees, & biographers alike

if it was some other family it wouldn't be a big deal. DCFS actually has no say in how the computer is used. if so then they would be in everyone's home! I wounder if its because they are Michael's kids that they are making a big deal about it. Stay strong Katherine, Mother Jackson, this is just another storm that will pass. Like one of Michael's songs says "KEEP THE FAITH"

RDC has posted that darn letter on every MJ board the last few days.

Very annoying to say the least. Who cares what someone posting as MusicGal has to say anyway.

Word to the badd by Jermaine Jackson

What up yo, word to the badd

I gave my love
You gave your love
Thought we'd never part
Said you loved me
Then you left me
With a broken heart
You never think about who you love
You only think about number one
You forgot about where we started from
You only think about what you want
You don't care about how it's done
You only think about you, your throne
Be it right or be it wrong

It ain't about your world
It ain't about the things that you do
If you don't care, i don't care
'cause you keep thinkin' about you
It ain't about you takin' my pie
You been takin' for a long time
If you don't care, i don't care
If you keep
Well i ain't thinkin' about you

Word up yo, word to the badd

Once you were made
You changed your ways
Even told me lies
Could not trust you
Still i loved you
My mind worried overtime
You know i tried to be there for you
Like a lover i cared for you
It didn't matter you always play me off
You only care about what you want
You don't care about how it's done
You only think about you, your throne
Be it right or be it wrong


Oh no no, i ain't thinkin' about you
Oh no
What up yo, word to the badd

Thinkin' about that pie that you've been takin' from me
From a lover to another lover hard to believe
Lost and don't know it yet you still show it
Givin' seems to be harder than it is to receive
The glass has gotten shady when it should have been clearer
But it's you always starin' in the mirror

If you look at the VIDEO OF JERMAJESTY AND JAAFAR ON it a few times. The video seems contrived (the slap in the face is a farce) and the expletive (cuss word) seems edited, in that it seems like it was added in.

Whoever leaked this video has an AGENDA...AND THAT IS TO GET MJ3 OUT OF KATHERINE'S HOUSE.

Now who would want that?? Grace? Alejandra? Rowe?

I agree with you Chico, someone is trying really hard to get those kids outta there. Maybe Randy is sick of Jermaine's kids sh!t lol and sick of Jermaine going around making the J5 look like idiots.

Maybe the execs are tired of putting money into Kate and the kids knowing it goes to ALL the others, who knows but that video lol I hope we can find out who leaked that.
