Just noticed TMZ story on Corey Feldman being ordered to pay child support. He's claiming that he's broke with an income of just $1387 per month.

Guess we can all expect another fabricated MJ story to hit the headlines in the next month or so.

I also noticed that they made it a point to say that most are MJ fans. My guess is, if Murray is found not guilty they can say well it was MJ fans that voted.

check yourself    

So many damn questions and MANY I have a feeling won't be asked let alone answered.

BTW:

Anybody ever hear anything about MJ's HAIR toxicology test results?

Where the F*CK is Tohme?

What about the coughing in the background heard over the phone when Consh*t was talking to that slut?

Nanny Grace is NOT to testify - wtf?

That NURSE MJ called - she changes her story from "someone there called me and I heard MJ behind them say he was cold on one side..." etc, then turns around and said MJ himself called her saying that - SAYS repeatedly that NO investigator had asked her a damn thing. Says it was "a close personal friend" that called her from MJ's. Who the hell is THAT person and where they hell has SHE herself gone since?

What's up with the pharmacist bolting off to the other side of the world and NOTHING about it but that he ran off...


On and on and on and on.... and, now this TMZ BS with the jurors list and details that ALL are "MJ fans", like the defense would approve SO MANY MJ fans.. wtf?? Why would THAT be?

.... WAAAYYY to much BS and in too many directions from too many people including J CLAN for me to EVER believe this will be a fair trial that will result in TRUE JUSTICE for Michael.

IF Consh*t gets convicted and actually SENTENCED, even then doesn't win an appeal based on the mountain of BS that can BE appealed before day one in court even happens, for him to walk ... I for one will be gobsmacked AMAZED.

OH and NOW Nancy Grace LUUUUVS MJ. Anybody catch her on THAT with Harvey on TMZ the other night? Just less then 6 wks ago she put MJ on blast as "Guilty Non Guilty Verdicts" in line with OJ AND NOW CA on her show, oh but THIS WK it's "I LOOOVE MJ, and Dr. Murray should have been charged with Murder!"

My WTF puke bucket over floweth and fresh out of Tylenol - CYA.

Jackson press conference won't be shown at trial
By ANTHONY McCARTNEY, AP Entertainment Writer – 47 minutes ago
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jurors in the upcoming trial of Michael Jackson's doctor won't see a recording of a press conference by the singer promoting his final concerts, a judge ruled Monday.
Defense attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray had wanted to show the footage, claiming it showed Jackson wasn't healthy and had only committed to 10 shows. By the time of his death, the singer had been committed to 50 shows at London's O2 arena.
Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor ruled the March 2009 press conference wasn't relevant to the involuntary manslaughter case against Murray, which will focus on the pop superstar's final weeks and hours.
Defense attorney Nareg Gourjian said that according to promoters of the shows, Jackson's press conference was delayed 90 minutes because the singer was passed out and appeared to be "hung over."
"We believe that it's readily apparent from watching the video that Mr. Jackson was under the influence," Gourjian said.
Pastor said showing the footage would be prejudicial and the defense's request included speculation that should not be shown to jurors.
The judge also blocked prosecutors from mentioning efforts by investigators to speak to Murray after his initial interview with police days after Jackson's June 2009 death.
The rulings were some of the final bits of housekeeping before opening statements, set for Tuesday.
Murray has pleaded not guilty. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted and the loss of his medical license.
Authorities contend the Houston-based cardiologist gave Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and other sedatives. Murray first disclosed he had been giving Jackson the anesthetic in the bedroom of the singer's rented mansion during his interview with police.
Murray's lead defense attorney Ed Chernoff disputed whether authorities left messages seeking another interview with the physician. Ultimately, Pastor determined attempts to contact Murray through his counsel should not be brought up during the trial.

Michael Jackson's Kids Prince & Paris Want To Testify In Manslaughter TrialMichael Jackson's Kids Prince & Paris Want To Testify In Manslaughter Trial

Michael Jackson's two eldest children, Prince Michael and Paris, have told their grandmother Katherine they want to testify in the manslaughter trial of the doctor accused of killing the pop superstar with an overdose of a powerful anesthetic, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

A Jackson family insider said: "Katherine is resisting the move, because she knows how traumatic it would be for them, but both Prince Michael and Paris have said they want to tell the jury what they saw on the day their father died."

RadarOnline.com has learned the King of Pop's sister LaToya has privately declared her support of the children's stance to take the witness stand against Dr. Conrad Murray.

Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the Thriller singer's death on June 25, 2009, at age 50.

"Both LaToya and Katherine agree, however, that Blanket should not testify as he is too young," the source said.

"Prince and Paris are determined to take the stand, though. Ultimately, I don't believe Katherine will deny them that chance, even though she doesn't want them to and has told them so. The kids have said they don't want their father's legacy to be tarnished by the trial and they believe their evidence will help convict Doctor Murray.

"LaToya has said it would be good for the children to, 'Get what is inside them, out of them.' She feels it is a way for them to release the hurt. Above all though, she believes her brother was murdered and what Prince Michael and Paris could tell the jury, would inevitably help convict the doctor."

A second source close to the legal proceedings confirmed to RadarOnline.com they too had been told Prince Michael and Paris wanted to testify, but predicted only one of them would be called -- and only if "things were going bad" in the trial for prosecutors.

Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket were all included on a potential witness list passed out to the jurors in an attempt to ascertain their familiarity with the family. Also listed were siblings Janet, LaToya, Jermaine, Marlon, Rebbie, Tito and Randy as well as parents Katherine and Joe Jackson.

If the teenage star witnesses were called, it could be problematic for prosecutors, who have said Murray caused Jackson's death by giving him the powerful anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid at the singer's Los Angeles mansion and not properly monitoring him.

As the source close to the Jackson clan has said: "Prince and Paris adored Doctor Murray and thought he was a God send for their father. It was only after their father's death that they formed a subsequent opinion of him. Both Prince and Paris could take the stand and wind up providing evidence which supports the doctor."

Another source familiar with the inner workings of the legal case said the children could be cross examined about whether their father had long-standing drug addictions.

That source said: "After saying goodbye to her dad at the hospital, Paris is said to have remarked, 'My daddy is so cold again. He was always cold. He would sit by the fire to get warm. We were always afraid he would fall in as he was so close to the flames. He couldn't get warm. Now there he is... so cold.'

"Prince and Paris knew their dad relied on Dr. Murray to survive and knew their father adored him. Their comments could save him from jail because it would work well in the eyes of a jury."

The Jackson family insider said Prince Michael, if he testifies, would tell court how he walked into his father’s bedroom in the middle of his doctor’s doomed attempts to revive him.

Murray has insisted Prince Michael and Paris were bundled from the room after the star’s daughter burst into tears and screamed ‘Daddy’.

Murray -- who was hired as the late singer's personal doctor to assist Jackson in preparing for a series of planned comeback concerts in London -- has pled not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
