Prince Jackson

Jiu Jitsu Badass

At Legendary Fight School

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

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.

Sofi,


If you leave your unloved husband for a new meaningful life, he would tell your sons that you die.


You are just too weak and should have been stornger since you lost your mom at 5. Blanket lost MJ at 5, and according to the Jackson, he was not too aware of it. Most children do not have much memory before 5, unless they have been hung over a balcony.

Sofi, was your mother a drug addict pedophile as well?

Sometimes those people die early for a reason, so they won't raise another pedophile sons/daughter. Look at Lawanrence Taylors.

ROFL

FBI files showed Jackson paid off dozens of boys. FALSE. This report originated in the People, a UK tabloid. They recycled old do***ents that were allegedly shown to the FBI and none of the do***ents were verified. Many are easily proven false.
-

The FBI gathered significant information about Jackson. FALSE. Paul Barresi, a gay porn star who became a private investigator and then had his license taken away, is believed to have supplied much of the information that was wrongly described as an FBI file.

-

Philip and Stella LeMarque, chefs at Neverland, were key witnesses against Jackson. FALSE. They were discredited by changing their stories and accepting money from various publications.

-

Jackson watched porn films with young boys. FALSE. There was no evidence to backup this allegation by a Neverland worker (who was paid for interviews).

-

Wade Robson and his mother both repeatedly denied he was molested by Jackson. TRUE. Journalists reporting the story asked Robson and his mother repeatedly if Jackson molested him. They both furiously denied it. Robson testified in Jackson’s 2003 trial that he was not molested.

-

Jordan Chandler’s father was investigated on charges of extorting Jackson. TRUE. Evan Chandler was said to have demanded money at his very first meeting with Jackson’s representatives in exchange for not pursuing a criminal case. An extortion charge was investigated but no charges brought.

-

Jackson successfully sued a journalist for slander. TRUE. He won a verdict against Victor Gutierrez, a self-described journalist, who published a book that was said to be based on Jordy Chandler’s diaries.

-

Jordan Chandler refused to testify in the 2003 criminal prosecution of Michael on abuse charges against Gavin Arvizo. TRUE. Jordan left the country to avoid being a witness.

-

Three of Jackson’s ex employees claimed they saw Michael molest children. TRUE. The three sued Jackson, he countersued and won. They were discredited.

Sofi,


If you mother was not a drug addict pedophile, you would have no idea how Prince and Blanket felt when MJ died. It was the best thing that could have happened to them. Pedophiles sometimes cannot control their sexual urges when they see little erotic boys running around them. Especially when MJ was so broke and couldn't afford another parent's little bundle of joy boy! That was why Blanket kept his hair long trying to look like a girl so he wouldn't be attractive to MJ.

JUST MY OPINON

Once again this raggedy c**t MiMi (aka Dr. Rabid Ph.D) cherry picks what facts she wants from a story. SOMEHOW she forgets to post these facts from the same story on radaronline:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well, that's straight from the Rabid Manifesto.


Piece of this, ignore that, deny deny deny, say it was "all very innocent", a part of this, story from a fan there, outright fabrication here and a fairytale there.


Couple that with proclaiming that "everyone MJ was ever involved with was an expert mix of thief, liar, extortionist, grifter and opportunist", well when it's convenient anyway.


Don't forget we also have to include, that when it fits the fairy tale, MJ was completely healthy, but very sick, very intelligent but easily duped, a manly man that even the most rabid fan can't think would father children naturally, and not dependent on drugs, that he took constantly.


It's all quite innocent, why won't every agree?

Doctor says he thought Michael Jackson had drug problem in 1993

A doctor who treated Michael Jackson during a 1993 concert tour that had to be canceled when the singer entered rehab testified Monday about the signs that led him to conclude the singer had a problem with prescription pain medications at the time.

In videotaped testimony, Dr. Stuart Finkelstein said he was later asked by concert promoter AEG Live to act as Jackson's personal physician during the ill-fated "This Is It" tour in 2009 but wanted to know if Jackson was "clean."

AEG executive Paul Gongaware said he didn't believe Jackson had any prescription drug issues, Finkelstein testified.

Paris Jackson speaks out through mother Debbie Rowe
Finkelstein's testimony was recorded during a February deposition that was played for jurors hearing a negligence lawsuit by Jackson's mother against AEG Live LLC. Katherine Jackson claims AEG failed to properly investigate another doctor who later gave her son an overdose of the anesthetic propofol and that the company ignored warning signs about her son's health.

Finkelstein said he first suspected Jackson had a dependence on pain medications in 1993 while working on the "Dangerous" tour. He recounted spending 24 hours in the singer's hotel suite and administering morphine intravenously to deal with Jackson's pain.

He said he gave Jackson morphine during their first meeting because the singer's buttocks were scarred from previous unspecified treatments and he was concerned about giving an injection of the painkiller Demerol.

He said he also noticed that Jackson appeared to have a high tolerance for morphine and had on a patch that administered another opiate drug.

Finkelstein said he gave Jackson one other painkiller treatment before the "Dangerous" tour was halted after what he described as an intervention by Elizabeth Taylor and others in Mexico City.

Jurors also heard Monday from Kenny Ortega, a choreographer and director who worked with Jackson on preparations for the "Dangerous" tour and later shows, including "This Is It." Ortega was not present on the "Dangerous" tour at the same time as Finkelstein and testified that he never saw Jackson take any medications.

Ortega, who raised concerns about Jackson's health during rehearsals for the "This Is It" shows, has not yet testified in details about his interactions with the singer in his final months. Ortega will resume testifying on Tuesday afternoon.

The doctor, who now specializes in addiction medicine and works for concert promoters treating injuries to performers, said he relayed his concerns about Jackson's painkiller use to Gongaware, then a "Dangerous" tour worker.

Gongaware is now a top AEG Live executives and a friend of Finkelstein, the physician said.

Finkelstein said he and Gongaware had five to 10 conversations in 2009 about working on Jackson's "This Is It" shows. Finkelstein said he wanted $40,000 a month and was not hired.

Jackson died after Dr. Conrad Murray administered an overdose of the anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009. Murray, who agreed to work on the "This Is It" shows for $150,000 a month, provided Jackson with propofol as a sleep aid.

AEG Live denies it hired Murray and says it bears no responsibility for Jackson's death.

Finkelstein is the first medical professional who treated Jackson to testify in the case, now in its 11th week.

Last week, jurors heard from addiction medicine specialist Dr. Sidney Schnoll, a paid expert witness who said he did not see anything in Jackson's medical history that indicated the singer was addicted to any medications. His analysis was based on medical records that dated back to the late 1990s, after the "Dangerous" tour.

Finkelstein said many of his records involving his "Dangerous" tour treatment of Jackson had been stolen


------------------

Why didn't he die back then, so some children would not have been harmed. At least Gavin Aviso would not have been molested.

NEWS/ Michael Jackson's Estate Hit With New Child-Molestation Claim From Choreographer Wade Robson: Exclusive Details
by Natalie Finn Tue., May. 7, 2013 8:20 PM PDT

Amanda Edwards/Getty Images, Pool Photographer/WireImage.com
UPDATE May 8, 2013: Wade Robson's attorney, Henry Gradstien, tells E! News: "Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it. Wade Robson, in addition to being one of the most talented people on the planet, is one of the kindest, most gentle, decent and introspective human beings one will ever meet. He is the loving father of a young son and happily married. Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, he collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child...The irony here is that we were the ones who filed under seal and still tried to keep it secret. Amidst all the accusations of a financial motive, no amount of damages is even listed in our papers. There are significant legal issues involved in this case that have the potential to impact lives beyond just our client. But the Jackson money machine, in which everyone is indeed financially motivated, is at it once again to keep the truth from coming out. This time it won't work."
Michael Jackson's legacy has taken another hit.
Choreographer Wade Robson, who testified in the pop icon's defense during his 2005 trial on child molestation charges, has now filed a claim against Jackson's estate, alleging that he in fact was abused by the late star.
Robson's court filing is sealed, but E! News has obtained do***ents confirming that a petition to make a late claim against the estate, as well as certificates of merit from mental health professionals and other supporting paperwork were filed on May 1.
NEWS: 2005 sex-abuse case could be revisited in Jackson wrongful-death trial
"Wade used to tell me that Michael would ask to have baths with him," a close friend of Robson's exclusively tells E! News. "It was weird...He didn't seem to question it, neither would we, it was just what he would say. It sounded strange, but we never delved further."
Robson "never seemed ashamed of it or anything," the insider adds. "I have no idea how he was feeling inside, but he would be quite matter of fact about it."
The So You Think You Can Dance regular was even was among the lineup of all-star dancers who performed a tribute to the King of Pop to kick off the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards following his sudden death at 50 that June.
NEWS: Paris Jackson spending time with mother Debbie Rowe

"To us, he would always defend Michael through the previous sexual abuse allegations," the source says. "He loved Michael and would be the first to stick up for him. But to be honest, today's news has not been a surprise as the relationship between Michael and the family was very unusual."
But while Robson maintained during the 2005 trial that Jackson did not molest him, one of the artist's former housekeepers, Blanca Francia, testified that she saw her ex-boss showering with Robson when he would have been 8 or 9 years old.
"Jackson discovered Wade when he was a little boy in Australia," Robson's friend tells us. "Michael thought he was such a talent right from the start and so paid for Wade and his family to move to California. I think he paid their rent, got their visas, organized the whole thing.
"Wade as a little boy always had everything," the source says. "He never had to ask for anything. He always had the best things and he would always say, 'Michael bought it for me.' 'Michael got it for me.'"
The insider adds: "We all knew he was very special and close to Michael."
Meanwhile, Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for Michael Jackson's estate, tells E! News: "Mr. Robson's claim is outrageous and pathetic. This is a young man who has testified at least twice under oath over the past 20 years and said in numerous interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him or with him. Now, nearly 4 years after Michael has passed this sad and less than credible claim has been made. We are confident that the court will see this for what it is."

---------------

Paris Jackson's cutting scars dated back long before Wade made his claim, just saying.

And I love to re-read all these old news where I can see dirt that I might have missed. For example:

"Wade used to tell me that Michael would ask to have baths with him," a close friend of Robson's exclusively tells E! News. "It was weird...He didn't seem to question it, neither would we, it was just what he would say. It sounded strange, but we never delved further."
Robson "never seemed ashamed of it or anything," the insider adds. "I have no idea how he was feeling inside, but he would be quite matter of fact about it."

Why would an adult male bath with a young boy that was not his children??? You don't even do that unless you were going to swim in the public pool or something, where people shower in the open. Even with that, look at what Sandusky did in a public shower. Don't the rabids have brain to understand what would be going on in private. Gross!!!!

Michael Jackson Could've Been 'Doctor Who' In The Late '80s

Michael Jackson was almost "Doctor Who."

In a new book, "Now On The Big Screen: The Unofficial and Unauthorized Guide to 'Doctor Who' At The Cinema," author Charles Norton reveals that the King of Pop was at the top of Paramount Pictures' list when the studio was looking to bring "Doctor Who" to the US big screen in the late '80s, The Times of London was the first to report.

Though The Guardian called it "one of the weirdest casting decisions of all times," Jackson, who had recently appeared in "Moonwalker," was reportedly "quite keen" on the idea, according to Radio Times. "If he hadn’t come through [Bill] Cosby was considered the ideal replacement," the site reports.

It's hard to know what the late Jackson thought of "Doctor Who," but it's clear his daughter is a fan. When current Time Lord Matt Smith announced he'd be leaving the show, the 15-year-old girl tweeted:


"Doctor Who" is still looking to replace Smith, but details have recently come to light about John Hurt, who appeared in the Season 7 finale as an a unidentified incarnation of The Doctor. Fans have been scratching their heads as to how he will fit in the the Time Lord's timeline, but details recently emerged: Hurt will play a "dark Doctor."

"There was a gap between Paul McGann playing the Doctor [in the 1996 TV movie] and Christopher Eccleston, when we didn’t see a regeneration, [when the series was revived in 2005] and John Hurt will fit into that gap. He is a past Doctor, not a future Doctor," costume designer Howard Burden allegedly told Prince Charles and Camilla while giving them the royal tour of the BBC studios, according to The Mirror.
