Prince Jackson

Jiu Jitsu Badass

At Legendary Fight School

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.

If Paris lives in Utah, she will be harassed more than ever. The whole state is anti Gay, and her father was so GAY!!!


If Paris is going to Utah, she might be better off living with OhWell than any kind of school.


She will learn to embrace the truth.


I hope Prince has the move to snatch a knife when Paris wields one on her arm next time.

Michael Jackson child abuse probe halted because he was to receive White House honour from President

FBI scrapped investigation into abuse of young boys to save President Ronald Reagan from embarrassment

An FBI probe into Michael Jackson’s sex abuse of young boys was shelved because he’d been invited to the White House, official records show.

The Thriller megastar was to be honoured with an award by Ronald Reagan in 1984 for his work with drug and alcohol charities.

And federal agents decided to save the President and wife Nancy embarrassment by scrapping their investigation into a tip-off that Jackson had molested two Mexican boys.

The disclosure – in papers released under America’s Freedom of Information Act – comes a week after the Sunday People revealed Jackson spent £23million in 15 years to buy the silence of at least 24 youngsters who had visited his Neverland ranch in California.

The Reagan do***ent is part of a 333-page file made public by the FBI which show there were suspicions the singer had been abusing kids since at least 1978, when he was 20.

FBI agents found a home-movie titled Michael Jackson’s Neverland Favorites An All Boy Video Anthology.

And in a separate FBI file obtained ­exclusively by the Sunday People – and not included in the Freedom of Information papers – a costume designer said the singer ordered paedo magazines while touring Europe 35 years ago with the Jackson 5.

The revelations underline the huge influence wielded by Jackson, who died of an overdose in 2009 aged 50.

The FBI openly admits in the dossier it did not follow up the tip about the Mexican kids being abused “because Jackson was to receive an honour at the White House from the President”.

He was back at the White House in 1990 to meet President George Bush Snr, wife Barbara and their daughter Dorothy.

There was no mention of any abuse probe at that stage.

But other FBI files detail a late-night phone call from Jackson to Terry George, a boy of 13 in Leeds, with the singer describing how he was fondling himself during their chat. The young Brit had been befriended by the star in 1979 after asking for his autograph.

A 1992 file tells how a couple complained Jacko and a boy of 12 shared a sleeper train compartment next to theirs – and kept them awake with “questionable noises”.

But no official action was taken in any of the cases spelt out in the do***ents.

‘Abused’ boy: Files show I told truth

Allegations: Wade Robson
PA

A dancer who claims Michael Jackson sexually abused him said our ­revelations about the FBI files last week “shows I was telling the truth”.

Wade Robson, 30, suing the King of Pop’s estate, has asked his legal team to get hold of the files on the hush money Jackson paid boys.

Lawyer Maryann R. Marzano is hoping the FBI will turn over boxes of information on the allegations and wants to contact other victims, cops, Neverland staff, and ­investigators.

Choreographer Wade claims he was molested over seven years. A source close to him said: “He feels this could become a key part of his case, that he is not the only child who may have suffered at Jackson’s hands.”

Jackson’s estate says Robson’s allegations are “completely false, outrageous and sad”.
