Prince Jackson

Jiu Jitsu Badass

At Legendary Fight School

7/8/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0703_Prince_jackson_launchPrince Jackson is one step closer to becoming a cold-blooded killing machine -- TMZ has learned, Michael Jackson's first born just earned his blue belt in Jiu Jitsu last week ... from one of the most famous martial arts schools in the world.

It's no small feat ... sources at the renowned Gracie Academy in Beverly Hills -- where the 16-year-old trains -- tell us, there are only 5 belts total in the Gracie belt hierarchy, and it takes a LONG time to move up in the ranks.

FYI, the Gracie family is Jiu Jitsu royalty -- and has trained scores of MMA stars like Brendan Schaub, Nate Diaz, Antoni Hardonk, Rani Yahya ... hell, even Tim Tebow.

As for the belts, blue is the second belt after white -- and in order to advance, we're told students must learn 34 different maneuvers (such as an arm bar, elevator sweep, and a guillotine) each with roughly 4 different techniques.

After blue comes purple, then brown, then black -- and to get to purple, we're told Prince will have to learn an additional 600 moves.

Better start practicing.

I´m sure he used the "elevator sweep" and "guillotine" on dear old "dad" more than once. That kid probably grew up defending himself from his "father´s" weird pedophiliac longings. Barf....

MJ's rabid fan base likes to blame AEG whenever another story about MJ being a drug addict, plastic surgery addict and child molester but what about the stories of "his kids"?

Yea, "sources". Like who, the Jackson family publicists?

I always thought Papa Joe invested in law firms and PR firms. Well that and face grease and hair lube.

Man, this kid...Something is off about him. Something about his face and posture. Hell, even the clothes he wears. Then again, if you grow up as Michael Jackson's eldest "son", you're bound to come out feeling not-quite-right to normal people.

Prosecutor Wanted Katherine Jackson To Seek Restitution From Michael Jackson Death Doc

Katherine Jackson was “implored” by the Deputy D.A. who successfully put Conrad Murray behind bars to seek restitution from the disgraced former physician, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Michael Jackson’s mother refused to pursue that option though, because her attorneys in her wrongful death action against AEG Live convinced her it would jeopardize their case, a source close to the Jackson matriarch tells us.

Even though Murray was broke at the time of his conviction, former Deputy D.A. David Walgren “implored Katherine to seek restitution, mainly, to prevent him from profiting off of her son’s death in the future, the source explains.

“Murray had already been paid for an in-depth interview that he did before being convicted, during the trial. The D.A. knew that Murray would absolutely try to make money off Michael in the future, like he did with the recording of Michael seemingly slurring his speech on his iphone that was played during the trial for jurors,” the source says.

However, in a stunning development during the scheduled restitution hearing after Murray was convicted, Walgren announced to Judge Michael Pastor that Katherine didn’t wish to pursue it.

“It absolutely gutted the D.A. because he wanted Murray to be held accountable once he was released from jail. Murray has never accepted any responsibility for Michael’s death, and blames everyone but himself,” the source says.

If Katherine Jackson had sought restitution, “Judge Pastor certainly would have been inclined to give it to her. Neither Murray, nor his associates would have been able to profit from voice mail messages, future interviews, book deals, etc., because all of that money would go directly to Katherine,” the source explains.


We knew this much, she didn't do it not because she was kind, but because she was greedy. SMH!!!

Karma again has it say, Corrad is coming out and going to travel the world with his book!!!
