Michael Jackson's Nephew

He Handed Out $100 Bills

to Strangers

Michael Jackson
was foolishly generous when he was alive ... handing out $100 bills to complete strangers whenever he felt like it -- this according to his nephew.

TJ Jackson -- the co-guardian of Michael's three kids -- testified today as part of the wrongful death lawsuit against AEG, claiming MJ was "extremely generous" ... citing generosity towards his employees, as well as random handouts of $100 bills to strangers.

It's pretty crazy ... considering MJ died a financial wreck, buried in nearly insurmountable debt.

During his testimony, TJ also said MJ's daughter Paris was hit the hardest by the singer's death, saying, "The loss of my uncle has hit her at a different level ... She was daddy's little girl. My uncle was her world."

TJ said he also supports Halle Berry's efforts to block paparazzi from chasing celebrity kids -- claiming the Jackson children are often faced with rogue photogs. He said, "I think it's awful what they get away with."

You are really amatuer journalists. He wasn't a " financial wreck". He had a billion just in music publishing. If i owe 300k on a house worth $1million I'm not broke. This is a stupid article with a stupid headline

I am sure he did that -- in front of TJ, just as in the famous inerview with Bashire where he went to an antique store and pointing at things saying, I want this, this, this, this and that.........


What was the purpose of such, for publicity, for impressing people around him, impressing the TV views, the world that he was as rich as a King or Queen as per Alec Baldwin.


As we all knew, he never pay his bills owing up hundreds of millions in debt. So bite me if I despise him.


Any which ways, what kind of values was he trying to teach his kids, be a dead beat and never take any responsibilities when it comes to spending???


Yeah, he gave to Charities, - with money he should have paid his debts. He was smart that way too so he could claim tax credit by using the money he borrowed and fully realized that he would never pay back!!!!


TG he is dead (TGHID) abd TGIF, let's party.............:)

Explosive Report: Michael Jackson Spent $35M To Silence 24 Young Boys He Abused Over 15 Years

Posted on Jun 29, 2013 @ 16:48PM | By Dylan Howard

Secret FBI files published in a British newspaper allege how superstar singer Michael Jackson paid off parents and victims of his sexual abuse.

The thousands of pages of do***ents include private investigators’ reports, phone transcripts and hours of audio tapes that were created by a former investigator who once worked for jailed Hollywood sleuth Anthony Pellicano.

“They describe how the Thriller hit-maker was once caught by a member of his household staff groping a world-famous child star, watching porn films while molesting another boy and fondling the genitals of a third in his private cinema,” Britain’s PEOPLE reported late on Saturday.

“The mother of one of the youngsters was sitting two or three rows in front of them at the time – unaware of the vile abuse her son was suffering.”

The files, reportedly provided to the FBI as part of its probe into Pellicano, name 17 boys – including five child actors and two dancers – whom Jackson abused.

Other children the singer allegedly preyed on include a European boy and the sons of a screenwriter. Their names were not published in the report.

In a transcript of one tape from 1993, Jackson’s ex-butler Philip LeMarque and his wife Stella detailed how screen legend Marlon Brando complained that the King of Pop would “disappear with the children” at his Neverland Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Stella said: “He’d come to the ranch and always see Michael playing, disappear with the children. Michael would never spend time with the adults at the ranch.

“He [Brando] said, ‘What the hell is Michael doing with those kids!’’’ She said another famous guest, the late Elizabeth Taylor, “never” complained.

The couple said Jackson would watch porn films with young boys in his private bedroom behind a secret wall.

The explosive report comes just days after a dancer-choreographer revealed how he’d been allegedly abused by Jackson beginning at age seven and said it continued unabated for a period of seven years.

Wade Robson, now 30, told a Los Angeles court that Jackson made his first sexual advances in the star’s bedroom in 1990, as his sister Chantal slept in the same room and often with his mother under the same roof.

PEOPLE reported, “The files seen by this newspaper appear to confirm Robson’s claim to be one of many child victims who were invited to fulfil Jackson’s sick fantasies at his isolated playground in the Californian countryside.”

Ironically, the files were commissioned by Jackson himself who had hired Pellicano to ensure that any skeletons in his closet remained out of the spotlight.

In a jailhouse interview in 2011, Pellicano claimed he dropped Jackson as a client because he “did something far worse” than molesting young boys.

“I quit after I found out some truths. He did something far worse to young boys than molest them,” said Pellicano.

The investigator, who the newspaper declined not named, said Pellicano was hired after the dentist father of 13-year-old Jordan Chandler claimed his son had been abused.

“Around 1993 things were really heating up. The suggestions were Jordie was not the only victim. The momentum became so great Jackson needed a private investigator to go straight for the jugular and produce results,” the sleuth said.

“His actress friend Elizabeth Taylor encouraged him to hire Pellicano ­because she had used him to stop dirt on her drug problems being released in the media – Pellicano was a master of negotiation and keeping stars’ ­reputations clean.

“I was hired by him to find out where the fires needed putting out and, in this case, where allegations would be coming from.

“But I have never worked on a case with as many potential claimants as the Jackson case.”

The snoop said their reports discovered that Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50, was a “serial child predator.”

“It showed at least two dozen children were given money to stay quiet – which came to around ­$35million,” the investigator said.

“Wade Robson was one of the kids identified as a victim while our reports show many others were paid off before their names even emerged.”

He said the pay-out total included about $20 million to Chandler.

The investigator added: “I haven’t released this now to upset Michael’s children, who haven’t done anything wrong.

“But when Wade’s case was announced, I felt it was time the public knew what information had been ­collected, what the authorities have – and what has never been released.”
