    The lawyer for famed choreographer Wade Robson tells TMZ, Michael Jackson was a "monster" who sexually abused Wade for seven years as a child ... and threatened him if he ever went public. Robson's lawyer, Henry Gradstein, tells TMZ, "Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, he [Wade] collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child." Robson spent many weekends with Jackson at Neverland Ranch and his other homes in L.A. and Vegas between ages 7 and 14. Gradstein goes on ... "He [Wade] lived...

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. A jury of seven men and five women deliberated for less than two days before convicting Murray in Jackson’s 2009 death. Jurors had 300 pieces of evidence to consider after listening to 49 witnesses and complex medical testimony during the six-week trial. Prosecutors argued that Murray acted in a criminally negligent manner after giving Jackson a powerful dose of the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid. The defense, however, maintained that Jackson took a deadly dose of propofol when Murray left...

    WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shut the door Thursday to a resolution by a Houston lawmaker honoring Michael Jackson because debate on the symbolic measure could raise "contrary views" about the pop star's life.

    Even Calbuzz was moved when 11-year-old Paris Katherine Jackson took the microphone to tell the world that Michael had been a wonderful father and that she loved him dearly, which you can watch here on TMZ. That was the emotional high point of the MJ Tribute, for sure. The political high points were two: the Rev. Al Sharpton’s observation that Jackson was instrumental in breaking the color barrier and U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s insistence on the presumption of innocence. Sharpton’s great line: “He put on one glove, pulled his pants up and broke down the color curtain.” The Rev...

    Michael Jackson the King of pop died recently. I thought I'd share what I know about this. Jacko as some of you know faced accusations of child molestation. Did it really happen? The answer is no. You see several years ago I worked for an organization based in Boston called the Liberty Task force. It was a human rights anti terror group. We studied Michael Jackson's case. It turns out that the problem was not sexual deviancy but a psychological problem brought on from an abusive and non existent childhood. At best it could be called inappropriate behavior. Michael Jackson...

    Unfortunately, Michael Jackson, or "Wacko Jacko" will be remembered by many as that super weird, talented guy rather than for his artistic work and charitability. He reportedly gave to more charities than (39) than any other performer. His repressive childhood was not due so much to his Jehovah Witness upbringing - which probably gave him more "grounding," than an Ozzy Osbourne, but to his super rigorous recording and concert schedule as a kid. Jackson reported, later in life, that he was not able to have a childhood, and this, perhaps, is the foremost reason why he never wanted to grow...

    HULK star Lou Ferrigno has spoken about his private training sessions with Michael Jackson — and insisted: "I'd never seen him look better." Muscleman Lou was helping Jacko get in shape for his gruelling series of shows at the O2 in London next month. And the stunned actor insisted the pop superstar left him in no doubt that he was ready for his massive headline-grabbing comeback. Two-time Mr Universe Lou said: "When he moved he convinced me that he was going to make the biggest come back in history. "He was great. I trained him on and off for 15...

Already an affair of major star wattage, Sunday night's show was thrown under a white-hot spotlight in the wake of Mr. Jackson's death, adding attendees...

    was saddened to hear that both Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died, but I am extremely maddened by the amount of coverage that MSM and even our "reliable" conservative networks are giving to them in light of the serious events which transpired this week. One of the most serious events was the fact that Harold Koh was confirmed by the Senate on Wednesday June 24th as the State Department's Legal Advisor. His transnationalist views promote blending international and domestic law. Indeed, this is particularly scary knowing that he believes traditional sovereignty is obsolete. What are all those people thinking in...

    There were many strange tragedies to Michael Jackson's life, but an ­unexpected sadness is that, in death, this huge global celebrity makes me think, not of Thriller, not even of the Jackson 5, but of a 47-year-old Scottish woman who was allegedly last seen in a hotel in Liverpool crying for her cat, ­Pebbles. Jackson's death and Susan Boyle's all too obvious unhappiness both stem from the same source: fame. I have never believed, and nothing in the past few weeks has altered my certainty, that one can be famous in today's world of mass media and 24-hour paparazzi and...

    Generally speaking, I’m a believer in the rule that we should not speak ill of the dead. Or at least we should wait a decent interval before doing so (if we never spoke ill of the dead, history would be meaningless). But, I must say I find the media’s instinctive rush to sanctify Michael Jackson disgusting. Look, I understand that Michael Jackson was an "icon." I understand that some people loved his work and that many people who never met him believed they loved the man too. But I didn't, and I’m hardly alone. If Michael Jackson were just another...

    AEG Live, the company that persuaded Michael Jackson to sign up for 50 nights at the O2 arena, is facing a liability of up to £300 million and a dark house for the next nine months. It was Randy Phillips, head of the US entertainment company that turned the derelict former Dome into the UK’s most popular new arena, who persuaded Jackson to return for a stunning series of “farewell” concerts, beginning next month. The announcement, fuelled by a rare public appearance by Jackson at the venue, sparked an online frenzy, some 360,000 registering applications before sales had even opened....
