Jacko blames money for charges

By Sophie Tedmanson
December 30, 2003

MICHAEL Jackson sees "the face of God" when he looks at children but he doesn't think of them in a sexual way.

Speaking publicly for the first time since being charged with the sexual molestation of a 13-year-old boy, the man who used to be known as the King of Pop told the 60 Minutes program in the US that he thinks there is nothing wrong with sharing his bed with children.

When asked if he, as a parent, would let his own three small children sleep in a bed or bedroom with a grown man who had the same kind of allegations against him, Jackson said: "Absolutely."

"If I knew the person personally," he said.

" 'Cause I know how ... people can twist the truth, if I knew the person personally, absolutely yes. I wouldn't have a problem with it.

"What's wrong with sharing your bed? I didn't say I slept in the bed. Even if I did sleep in the bed, it's okay.

"I am not going to do anything sexual to a child. It's not where my heart is. I would never do anything like that. That's not Michael Jackson ... my mind doesn't run that way. When I see children I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much."

Jackson, 45, denied the allegations by the boy, who met the entertainer while undergoing cancer treatment and was featured in the British documentary Living With Michael Jackson, broadcast around the world earlier this year. Jackson said the allegations were "totally false".

"Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists," he told the program's Ed Bradley. Jackson, who was released on $US3 million ($4 million) bail two weeks ago, also claimed while in custody that he was manhandled by police who dislocated his shoulder and made him sit in a toilet for 45 minutes, which had "doo doo, faeces" on the walls.

Jackson said the allegations were fuelled by greed.

"The love of money is the root of all evil. And this is a sweet child. And to see him turn like this, this isn't him."

The interview aired on the CBS network in the US yesterday but apart from snippets on the local news and A Current Affair, a spokesperson for the Nine Network said there were no plans to screen it in full in Australia.

It's been an eventful few weeks for Jackson, who reportedly has married (for the third time) a "brilliant and stunning" 23-year-old Muslim pianist named Alisha.

I thought this was about Michael Jordan. Sure, he sleeps around and gambles too much but at least he doesn't diddle the kids.

Wedding bells for Jacko
From correspondents in Los Angeles
27dec03
MICHAEL Jackson has reportedly married for the third time.

He is said to have wed a stunning 23-year-old Muslim beauty earlier this year. Known only as Alisha, she is a brilliant pianist with an IQ of 154, according to reports in US magazine The Globe.

If true, that would put his bride in the top tenth of a per cent of the population - more intelligent than the average university professor.

Jackson, 45, is facing charges of molesting a 12-year-old boy after allegedly plying him with wine and pills.

A source told The Globe: "If these charges go before a jury, Michael knows that having a wife and family will help him.

"One of his problems is that people think of him as being weird and wacko.

"They automatically accept derogatory stories about him as being true.

"But if he can show that he really has a wife and family, like other guys, jury members are more likely to give him the benefit of the doubt."

The case against Jackson begins on January 16, when he is due to appear in court to answer to the charges.

He probably married Aaliyah. That way he can add necrophilia to all the other --philias in his life.

I recall seeing on the news, just after the pedophile was released from jail, he raised both hands in the air waving. Thats hard to do with a dislocated shoulder he claims to have.
MJ must not be a very good muslim either, because Allah (the muslim god) has no human qualities acording to the Koran, so I wonder what he actually see's in children...

Shouldn't his new muslim wife be called Aisha? Mohammads 6 year old bride?
This "wedding" has a sick undertone to it...

Yeah, I guess this news would explain the new Muslim connection to Michael. Very cheesy, IMO.

And what's up with a woman with THAT IQ taking up with Jackson??

She took one for the team, but it's not like she will have to sleep with him.

You could have predicted that he'd marry as soon as this allegation came up. He COULD consumate the marriage, but she'd first have to cut her hair short like a boy...

"And what's up with a woman with THAT IQ taking up with Jackson??"

Well:
1. she gets paid.
2. she hits the *BIG JACKOpot* if he goes to prison where he's likely to get whacked. So bad, so sad, read the will.

read the will

Leonard Mohammad probably has her set up with a sweet pre-nup as well. Jackson will be sheared like a white little lamb.

That didn't work out that way for Mike Tyson's 1st or 2nd wife.. The Nation of Islam is his bride now. Must be something about guys named Mikey. ;-)

I'll testify to that. I've dislocated one shoulder twice. Didn't feel like waving that arm in the air for some time after each event. :)

Break the pattern, Michael and it might be more believable. Everytime he's up on pedophile charges, he marries.
