Conrad Murray

Appeals Manslaughter Conviction

12/2/2011 3:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed an appeal, challenging his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Murray filed the document in pro per -- which means he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer.

On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm's contact information -- Murray lists "Men's Central Jail" ... and includes his booking number.

While he is representing himself, Murray is still communicating with one of the lawyers who repped him in the manslaughter trial, Nareg Gourjian.

Gourjian tells TMZ ... "This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer.  Dr. Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him."

all told.. the Chandlers were only really socialising with Michael for lessthan a year.

Mj first invited them to Neverland after the Oprah interview.. MJ was taking a long break from the Dangerous /tour.. & he was doing some videos for the album-- one of them.. REMEMBER THE TIME which was shot at Paramount. Jordan wasn't invited on set.. but the Cascio kids were.

By Spet 1993.. when Mj continued with t he tour was when this allegations went Evan waited until MJ left town.. to do his dirty deed.

so how many trips did June en famille take with Mj..

only a few.. Vegas, Disney World/Disneyland.. then Monaco for that Awards.. that's about it.

Of course, with the allegations Evan made it looked like they knew Mj longer than they did.. ALL BULL.

as for BB? ah the man who knew Mj since hewas 10-11 yrs old.. with the rest of the Jackson clan.hell.. BB protected Michael from Joe..

BB was thew only companion of MJ when he went to rehab in 1994.

He was with MJ when his genetalia was taken b y police.
etc.. etc..
Apparently when Mj was told BB passed away.. he went berserk.. I have no doubt.. a part of himself died with BB.

According to the book's description on Amazon, the story surrounds "the war between the land and the sea."

"Ancient sea-magic turns a dolphin into a human, an evil spell changes a teenage boy into a dragonfly and a once good and loving jellyfish queen becomes an evil fairy godmother. This modern day adventure forces an unsuspecting family to become the weapon to fight the war which rages on the land and under the sea," the description reads.

Paris is also featured on the book cover.

The film will also feature the voices of Larry King as King Pom, his wife, Shawn King as Queen Dalina,and Joey Fatone as Paco, a sea horse.

The project is currently in production and no release date is currently available.

Question: If as you say, Marlon Brando is the real father to Prine I and Paris - don't you think that Marlon's Son would be a lot closer to his half brother and sister than what he is? I am pretty sure that Marlon's son would know about whether or not his father is the real father to Michael's first two children. Just a thought!

FacebookTweetParis Jackson is finally following her father into show business.

The 13-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson will star in the upcoming Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, a mixed live-action and animation movie, as a girl who survives being brainwashed by a jellyfish queen in the ocean.

Filming begins in January. Three Keys is first in a series of five Lundon O'Malley movies to which she's committed, producer Stephen Sobisky tells PEOPLE.

"She wants to be an actress," says Sobisky. "She wants to take on her dad's legacy and do something good for the world and our product does that."

He says that half the profits from the movie and book versions of the story, featuring Paris on the cover, will be donated to schools.

Paris will appear as a live-action "human character" along with animated characters voiced by Larry King and wife Shawn, Joey Fatone and The Love Boat's Ted Lange.

The release date is not set yet and the filming locations are being kept under wraps.

"She is a sweet, smart girl," says Sobisky. "Our goal is to make sure she has a fun time doing something that keeps her busy. We're a family-driven group. For me, Paris is going to be like one of my children and I'm going to protect just like I do my other three kids. We want her to enjoy this experience."

please luv.. don't argue with me when it comes to this..
if you didn't know the role of bill Bray in Mj's life-- then you really know nothing.. if anyone KNEW everything that was happening to MJ's life then.. IT WAS BILL BRAY.. BAR NONE!
------------------------------------------------------------I heard they say Bill Bray had warned Michael Jackson about the Chandlers but he told Bill Bray to back off and that the Chandlers were actually good people. Later after the accusations Michael told Bill his biggest mistake in life was trusting the Chandlers.

bah. Michael Jackson never had intentions to marry Mune chandler-- but it was soo obvious from her transparent face.. she was plotting.. to be Mrs MJJ..
One thing is for sure. Michael Jackson made the smartest decision of his life by not marrying June Chandler. That greedy woman could have slipped poison in his coffee just so he would die young and leave all his hard-earned money to her.

Jordan would have full access to all the millions Michael had given him at the age of 30. I realize that is why Evan Chandler faked being an invalid so his son Jordan would live with him and take care of him for the rest of his life. That way once his son turned 30 he would ask him for money. Diane Dimond reported in her book 'Be careful who you love' that Evan Chandler lost 100% mobility of his arms and legs. Then how come Evan was able to hit Jordan with a barbell then tried to choke him in 2005? At one point Jordan must have realized that his father was a crook/scam artist.

Ok Marie.. enough of your June rubbish as you debunk yourself.. so you know a friend who knew Jordan. whoopee..

I said it before & I'llsay it again.. June plotted in hopes to marry Mj for the 'GOOD LIFE'! she saw she was in competition with oither mothers at Neverland & she wanted to jump the queue.. hence.. she invited Mj spoend nights at their house.. & gave him her hard luck stories.. Mj being a s oftie showered them with goodies.. which to MJ was no big deal. I n fact, he spent more with t he other families.. he also knew them longer.. & had a better & longer gratis from MJ bec they knew how to behave & weren't greedy. Unlike June & later on Evan..
MJ was NOT a fool.. HE WAS NEVER INTERESTED IN JUNE.. FUL STOP.. outside of being a family friend..

Now, Michael is gone.. & Evan blew his brains out..( I love saying that.. as soo fitting for someone so evil.. blow the brains that came up with t he scam that Michael Jackson molested his son.. so ironic!) it hasn't ended for them Jordan is doomed.. no matter w ehat.. he changed his name.. living in a mil plus house in Long Island. June is still here in West LA... keeping a low profile.. so what!
Judgement day is coming for them!

If Murray had the amount of money Jackson did, he would have been able to hire the best legal team to get him off. He may not have even seen a courtroom. It's good to have fame, money and power, you can get away with (via acquittal and illegal payoffs, not being innocent) the most despicable crimes.

Since you care so much about Dr. Murray why didn't you turn tricks or sell drugs on the streets to pay off his legal bills? Michael Jackson worked hard all his life so he had the right to pay the best lawyers to help defend him in court against the legion of extorsionists who wanted to ruin his reputation. Dr. Murray got exactly what he deserved. Prison time. If I go to your house and inject your daddy with propofol and kill him I bet you would want me to go to jail. So what makes you think Murray did not deserve to go to jail? Just because the victim was Michael Jackson does not mean Murray could get away with murder. Michael Jackson was a human being after all.

Paris Jackson Fills In For Missing Lindsay On Ellen; Says Wearing Masks Was 'Stupid,' But Well-MeaningParis Jackson Fills In For Missing Lindsay On Ellen; Says Wearing Masks Was 'Stupid,' But Well-Meaning 45 22

When Lindsay Lohan missed her flight to Los Angeles from Hawaii on Tuesday - and a scheduled taping of The Ellen DeGeneres show - the program pulled a coup, booking Paris Jackson, the daughter of late pop legend Michael Jackson, in her first ever solo interview.

After some discussion about her foray into acting, Ellen and Paris, 13, discussed her father's famous habit of disguising his children up in masks during public outings.

Paris told Ellen that she's enjoying school and feels like she's having a normal childhood. Despite her famous family, Paris said she wasn't recognized by her classmates, which gives her "a chance to be normal."

“They didn’t know who you were because you used to wear masks all the time," Ellen remarked. "When you would wear the masks do you remember thinking, because obviously your dad did that to protect you so nobody would know who you are and you could go out and have a regular life.

"Do you remember wearing a mask and going this is kind of weird?" Ellen asked Paris, who said, "Yeah, I’m like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' But, I, kind of realized the older I got, like he only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too."

In another candid moment, Paris shared with Ellen the most memorable thing her late father told her.

"He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you," Paris recalled. "I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.'"

As for LiLo, the Ellen appearance was the only promotion she was slated to do for her new Playboy issue, which she reportedly pocketed $1 million for.

Her rep said she “was delayed in Hawaii due to a travel-related issue" and "offered to tape Ellen tomorrow, but the show was unable to shift things around, and tomorrow is their last day of taping for the season.”

If the fiasco sounds familiar, it should: Lohan famously missed a mandatory court appearance last year after she claimed to have lost her passport while attending the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The interview with Paris airs on Thursday's edition of Ellen.

..Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry sells for $115 million

AP – 2 hours 18 minutes ago
Email.....NEW YORK (AP) — Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry collection sold for a record-setting $115 million — including more than $11.8 million for a pearl necklace and more than $8.8 million for a diamond ring given to her by Richard Burton — at a Christie's auction Tuesday night of memorabilia amassed by the late actress.

The pearl, diamond and ruby necklace, known as "La Peregrina," reached the world record price of $11,842,500. It had been estimated to sell for $2 million to $3 million. The price surpassed the previous auction record for a pearl, set in 2007 with the sale of The Baroda Pearls for $7,096,000.

Burton bought the necklace at auction in 1969 for Taylor for $37,000.

Taylor, a screen goddess who also starred in classics such as "Giant," ''Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," died in Los Angeles in March at age 79. A jewelry lover, she had pieces from some of the most famous names in the jewelry world, including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Chopard, in her collection.

The 33.19-carat diamond ring sold for $8,818,500. It had been estimated to sell for $2.5 million to $3.5 million. The ring was purchased by a private buyer from Asia, according to a Christie's spokesman.

The collection of Taylor's necklaces, earrings, pendants and rings and other gems went on sale Tuesday night in New York.

Among the other high-profile items was a diamond bracelet given to the "National Velvet" and "Cleopatra" actress by singer Michael Jackson, with an estimated sale price of $30,000 to $50,000. It sold for $194,500. All prices include the buyer's premium.

Other sales of Taylor's art, clothing and memorabilia will be held later in the week. Part of the proceeds will go to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which she established in 1991 to help people living with AIDS.

Taylor's collection of impressionist and modern art is scheduled to go on sale at Christie's in London in February.
