Zak Bagans I Scored MJ's Propofol Chair!!!

12/17/2016 12:30 AM PST

Zak Bagans just added to his creepy collection of memorabilia and bought Michael Jackson's old chair ... from his death room.

The chair was decor in MJ's Holmby Hills mansion ... and primarily used by Dr. Murray to monitor the singer when he was pumped full of Propofol.  

The "Ghost Adventures" star tells TMZ he scored the seat for around $15k ... and plans to put it in his Las Vegas Haunted Museum, along with Dr. Kevorkian's van and his body part cauldron.

Zak also wants Dr. Murray to come to Vegas and talk about the chair in person -- and considering the good doc's history with strip clubs -- that might not be out of the question.


Jermaine Jackson Divorce I Want HALF Our Michaels ... Says Estranged Wife

11/5/2016 12:20 AM PDT

jermaine_jackson_paintings_main_launchJermaine Jackson's estranged wife is making a list -- and checking it twice, we're sure -- to make sure she gets half their stuff, and she's especially eyeing two fancy Michael Jackson paintings.

Halima Rashid's divorce docs include a list of assets the couple amassed during 11 years of marriage. There's little stuff, like an Apple TV receiver and flower pots, and plenty of big ticket items too ... like the MJ portraits, entitled "Abstract" and "Sofa." 

She doesn't include the current value of the paintings, but only because she hasn't had them appraised yet. As for vehicles -- she says their Ferrari and Jeep are worth about $133k, and she wants her cut. 


MIchael Jackson Maids Say Neverland Mansion Laced with Pee and Poop

8/10/2014 7:22 AM PDT
Breaking News
Michael Jackson threatened his staff with animal poop balls ... and would freely piss all over the house ... so claim 3 former Neverland maids.

The 3 maids spoke with the New York Post, but did not want their names revealed.  They tell scatological stories that paint a shocking tale of uncleanliness.  One maid says when the urge hit, MJ would just unzip his pants and pee in the grand entry of Neverland.  

The maids were shocked, because when guests like Oprah or Elizabeth Taylor would visit the floors would be waxed but all they could think of is ... they're stepping where Michael took a wiz.

Another maid says Jackson would track in animal poop from his mini-farm on the property and then threaten to throw poop snowballs at the help.

The maids say Jackson lived like a pig ... his bedroom was littered with half-eaten chicken, potato chips, empty wine and whiskey bottles.  One maid said it was so bad, the place was infested with bedbugs.

And there's this ... one maid claims, when MJ would see pictures of the Jackson 5 in magazines, he send someone out to collect as many as they could and then he'd shred them, saying, "Yuck, they don't deserve to have my name.  They are gutless moochers.  I'm the only star.  They should be cleaning my shoes."

Michael Jackson Estate Sues Over Sale of MJ Concert Pics

7/25/2014 12:30 AM PDT
Michael Jackson Estate Sues
Michael Jackson's Estate is suing a movie memorabilia store for auctioning off historic photos from MJ's heyday -- and duping potential buyers with a get-rich-quick scheme.

The pics are from the Jackson brothers' 1984 Victory Tour. According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Michael hired a photog to shoot the concerts ... and Jackson's company owned all the rights to the pictures.

The Estate claims Premiere Props put the photos up for auction, and misled buyers into believing they would also own copyright on the pics -- a huge selling point, because the buyer could make a fortune by reprinting and selling the pics.

Premiere valued the pics from $200 to over $2K, according to its website. 

MJ's camp is now suing for all the auction profits ... and to stop Premiere from selling any more MJ memorabilia.

Michael Jackson's devoted fans made their annual pilgrimage to Forest Lawn Cemetery Wednesday to pay their respects on the 5th anniversary of his death.

The scene was decidedly more respectful than the sight of Conrad Murray thumbing his nose
at the Jackson family.

Conrad Murrary Michael Jackson Death AnniversaryDr. Conrad Murray mocked the 5-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death by popping into a convenience store for a bottle of milk.

In case you don't remember, Michael's code word for Propofol -- the drug that killed him -- was milk.

Murray has commemorated June 25th in various ways ... having his pic snapped in a tearful pose at MJ's mausoleum, dancing at a wedding and various other hijinks. 

This is Murray's first MJ anniversary since being sprung from L.A. County Jail.



Michael Jackson Fan Sues Estate ... I Don't Hear Enough MJ on This MJ Disc

6/12/2014 6:05 PM PDT
One irate Michael Jackson fan is suing his Estate because she thinks MJ was not the lead singer on 3 of his songs on the 2010 CD, "Michael" ... the first release after his death.

The woman filed the suit today in L.A. claiming she bought the disc in 2011, but didn't hear enough Michael on 3 particular tracks.

In the suit she claims she hired an audio expert to analyze her CD and he determined it was very likely that MJ did not sing lead vocals on "Breaking News" ... "Monster" ... and "Keep Your Head Up." 

The woman wants this to be a class action -- meaning if the allegation is true the Estate would owe money to everyone who bought the full album, or any of the 3 tracks in question.

The Estate's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, has previously said Michael did provide lead vocals for all the tracks on the album.

Michael Jackson Teenage Impersonator Strikes Again

6/3/2014 12:40 AM PDT

The teenage Michael Jackson impersonator who set the Internet on fire with his "Billie Jean" dance routine is back again ... and this time he's been hit by ... he's been struck by ... a "Smooth Criminal."

Brett Nichols ... who's just 17 ... stole the show at his high school's talent show last month, and even caught the eye of the Jackson family, who flew him out to Las Vegas to catch a performance of Michael Jackson ONE.

Now Nichols tells TMZ he's working on a new video, "Smooth Criminal," and has plans to do "Thriller" at some point. In the video, you see Nichols rehearsing for his "SC" vid ... but he doesn't do the infamous "lean" like MJ did. He's going to need those special shoes.

Nichols' rep (yes, he has a rep) tells TMZ ... Nichols is hoping to parlay this fame into an acting career and he's already gotten a few casting opportunities.

Hopefully he won't get typecast.

Jermaine Jackson Posthumous MJ Music Is Just Wrong ... WITHOUT ME

5/11/2014 5:24 AM PDT

Jermaine Jackson does not like the idea of new Michael Jackson music being released, but says it would have been cool if the Jackson 5 had worked on it.

JJ went from guarded to bitter when we asked him about the new MJ music Saturday afternoon in Calabasas. He says he's only heard one of the songs so far ... and thought it was good. 

But overall, he's against the idea of MJ's music being released without MJ around ... noting the estate passed over the Jackson 5 to work with producers like Timbaland.

Loyal til the end.

Conrad Murray I'm Back in the Medical Biz!

3/12/2014 12:55 AM PDT

Conrad Murray now has a chance to improve his success record in treating patients ... because he's back in business.

TMZ has learned the patients this time around will be children with heart problems.  Murray has taken a gig with the Trinidad Ministry of Health, where he'll be consulting with local heart surgeons.

Murray won't get rich off the new job -- he's volunteering his services, but it's definitely a foot in the door.  His medical license has been revoked in Texas and suspended in California and Nevada.

The government wants Murray to use his U.S. contacts to help hook up the sick kids.  

Truth be told ... Murray was a successful cardiologist in the U.S. ... beloved by many of his patients.  Only one blemish on his record ... you know ...

Conrad Murray Hey, My Son Likes Boobies Too

3/3/2014 4:00 PM PST
0303-conrad-murray-npgdotcom-01Conrad Murray came back to Trinidad, celebrating Carnival -- and he gave his son an official introduction into the world of BOOBIES!

Murray returned to the place where he became the man he is .... glowing in the sunlight of freedom ... and also glowing from the reflection on his head.

The man who did hard time for Michael Jackson's death brought his family along for the topless extravaganza .... and his son is clearly fully indoctrinated.

That V isn't just for victory.

JT channeled a little MJ during his show in L.A. last night -- busting out one of Michael's greatest hits ... and the crowd went wild.

Timberlake kicked off the Western leg of "The 20/20 Experience" tour at Staples Center on Tuesday ... and played a bunch of his own hits -- including "My Love," "Holy Grail" and "Sexy Back."

Then he turned to Michael Jackson ... and covered "Human Nature."  Check out the clip.

Justin's show was packed with huge celebs -- including Matt Damon, Amy Adams ... and JT's old boyband mate Lance Bass (who had a special "friends and family" VIP pass).

As for JC, Joey or the other one ... so far, it's unclear if they were there too.


Celine Dion Bigger Than Michael So Claims AEG

7/25/2013 10:42 AM PDT
Breaking News
It's Billie Jean vs. Titanic, and AEG claims the ship wins hands down.  Translation -- AEG is trying to convince the Michael Jackson jury that Celine Dion is bigger than MJ.

AEG exec John Meglin is on the stand in the wrongful death case, scoffing at the Jackson family's claim that Michael would have earned $1.5 billion had he lived.

Meglin told the jury it's his opinion Celine is a bigger star and therefore more bankable than MJ ever would have been.  Yet according to reports, Celine is worth a measly $400 mil. 

Fun facts:  Jackson ranks #3 in most albums sold worldwide -- more than a billion (behind the Beatles and Elvis) . Celine ranks #9 at 200 million albums.

As for Grammys, MJ also has her beat with 13 Grammys to her 5.

So we gotta ask ...
