Michael Jackson's mom and dad want money to make a documentary about him -- only there's a major twist ... they want YOUR money. If that's not bad enough -- they're using his kids to beg for cash. We'll tell you everything else that's wrong with it ... and what MJ would have thought about it.

Martha Stewart​ threw some shade on Gwyneth Paltrow when we asked which one of them is the queen of lifestyle. So, Martha's choice is clear ... who you got?

Plus, "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson says he doesn't get why homosexual men aren't into vaginas more -- and that they're going to Hell. He's trying to backpedal now, but are you buying it?

None of the Jacksons are hurting for money. There are those out there that have nothing. They struggle to pay bills. This just pisses me off. Maybe I should ask for hand outs...

Harvey is 100% correct in what he says about Katherine Jackson's video scam wanting MJ's fans to donate. This story goes much deeper. This video is being created under the contract KJ signed with Howard Mann in late 2009. KJ signed MJ's children under this contract also, with her lawyer not reading the contract and she agreed to 25% profit from the video. Howard Mann receives the 75% balance of profit. There aren't any %'s written in the contract for MJ3 !!!! Howard Mann is laying low in the background letting his business partner Sonia Lowe handle the video with KJ. No way on earth would MJ fan's donate to anything Howard Mann.
Also TMZ Raquel is out of date with her information. The executor's each receive 5% from running/managing certain MJ's businesses which does not include the ATV catalogue. It is written in MJ's Trust that the executor's are to be paid which is common language in most Trusts.
If MJ wanted KJ to have his copyrights & trademarks he would have written that in his Trust. He didn't because he knew KJ, Joe & siblings would have spent all leaving nothing to his own children. MJ knew his own family better than anyone.
MJ3 have been used as pawns since the day MJ died. The video clips you see for this do***entary are over 3 years old. Paris couldn't tolerate living in that household and look where she is now. Wake up people to what is happening to Michael's children.
