    As Joan Rivers’ prognosis grows more dire each day, RadarOnline.com has learned that medical investigators are growing ever closer to uncovering the real reason the healthy 81-year-old was sent spiraling into a coma after a standard medical procedure. And according to insiders, they believe the culprit could be a fatal dose of Propofol — the same drug that killed Michael Jackson after he was administered a lethal dose. “Certainly, they suspect the anesthesia was the issue, based on conversations between the staff and city medics,” a source close to the investigation told Radar.

Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The Post. “Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track . . . poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No. 1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.” When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, Calif., ranch for an interview in 1993, it was pristine. Floors were waxed, walls scrubbed and windows power-washed. It was after she, guest Elizabeth Taylor...

Brandon Howard is a 31-year-old singer, songwriter and producer who goes by the stage name of B Howard. He's the son of 53-year-old singer Miki Howard, whom Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson represented back in the 1980s. Miki met Jackson in 1982 and her son was born soon after.

    Debbie Rowe has reportedly said she will 'buy the bullet' to kill Conrad Murray, after the disgraced doctor spoke ill of her during a new interview. TMZ contacted Rowe after the former doctor - found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson - said that he and the King of Pop used to joke about how sexually unattractive they believed she was. 'A Jackson fan will shoot him dead, and I'd buy the bullet,' Rowe, 54, reportedly told the gossip site. 'I wouldn't shoot him but I'd buy the bullet ... a hollow-point.'

    Los Angeles (CNN) -- The jury in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial informed the court Wednesday afternoon that it has reached a verdict. The decision on whether concert promoter AEG Live is liable in Jackson's death is expected to be read at 6:30 p.m. ET. While waiting for the verdict, Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson sat on a courthouse bench playing a game on her iPad. Jackson's mother and three children sued AEG Live in 2010, contending the company's negligence in hiring, retaining or supervising Dr. Conrad Murray was a factor in the singer's June 25, 2009, death.

    Michael Jackson died because of his own bad choices involving the drug that killed him and the doctor who provided it, not because of anything done by AEG Live, a lawyer for the producer of Jackson’s comeback concerts told jurors Wednesday. Delivering his closing argument in the long-running negligence case by Jackson’s family, defense attorney Marvin Putnam said the secretive singer never told the producers that he was using the hospital anesthetic propofol to overcome his chronic insomnia. If AEG Live had known, it would have pulled the plug on the planned tour, the lawyer said. …

    The estate of pop music legend Michael Jackson owes $702 million in federal taxes and penalties, the Internal Revenue Service charged in U.S. Tax Court, accusing the estate of undervaluing some of the star's assets by hundreds of millions of dollars. At issue is the wide difference between what the estate said Jackson's legacy was worth versus what the IRS determined was its taxable value. An IRS spokesman and lawyers for the estate declined to comment. Jackson died on June 25, 2009, the date of the estate tax return. His estate's beneficiaries are Jackson's mother, Katherine, his three children and...

    We always suspected it. Deceased pop star Michael Jackson, who admitted to sleeping with children at his Neverland Ranch, has been exposed as a "serial pedophile" according to a report based on FBI files in the Sunday Mirror. The report claims that Jackson paid off 2 dozen families of children he molested, including some child stars as well as his maid's son. The sordidness of this report is difficult to read. From the Daily Mail: While Pellicano is now in jail for racketeering and wire-tapping, his investigator told Sunday People he was hired to help dig the dirt on Jackson...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Thriller, a tiger that belonged to Michael Jackson when the entertainer lived at his Neverland ranch, has died of lung cancer at actress-activist Tippi Hedren's wildlife preserve in California. The 13-year-old, 375-pound tiger died June 11, Hedren said Wednesday. A necropsy was performed and the tiger was cremated. Staff workers will hold a private service when the ashes are buried in a section of the preserve set aside for animals that die there. Thriller and her brother Sabu were born on Nov. 20, 1998, and lived with Jackson until May 4, 2006, Hedren said. When 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...

In short, Michael Jackson has become a legend. But whatever happened to his accusers--the ones the media now pretends never existed? Well, their lives have been difficult, to say the least.

In that time, Glee has achieved the record of having more songs on the 52-year old Billboard chart in history -- a total of 113 hit songs. Glee debuted six new songs on the chart this week alone, pulling five songs ahead of Elvis Presley, who had 108 hit songs.

Scherer told the New York Post that Jackson had built up a "really good collection" by the time of his death, with titles such as "Nazis - Of Pure Blood, Oasis Of The Zombies" and Hitler's Children". He also claimed that Jackson was a keen viewer of Garland TV specials and dramas depicting troubled boys in dysfunctional families.

By Tuesday, more than 2,000 people had joined a Facebook protest claiming it makes no sense to put the statue in the park because Jackson had no connection with the Czech Republic.

    Social workers have launched an investigation over claims Michael Jackson's youngest son was threatened with a stun-gun by one of his cousins. Officials opened a child protection file on the family after a 300,000-volt weapon was removed from the home where the late singer's three children live with their 80-year-old grandmother. Jackson's eight-year-old son Blanket was allegedly chased by his 13-year-old cousin Jaafar - the son of Michael's brother Jermaine - with the gun before being stopped by security guards.

Back in November, we posted a story about Dr. Arnold Klein, who told us that Michael Jackson had a habit of peeing in cups and other objects, often in...

    MICHAEL Jackson's death certificate rules he WAS murdered, the News of the World can reveal. We obtained a copy of the document and an amendment to it - that have never been published. On the original July 7 certificate deputy coroner Cheryl MacWillie refuses to give a cause of death. But after further probes, it is amended on August 31 by medical examiner Christopher Rogers to "homicide". He concludes Jacko died from "acute Propofol intoxication" due to an "intra-venous injection by another". Meanwhile Jacko's doctor Conrad Murray, 56, has hired a hotshot lawyer in case he is charged over the...

The documents contained no new information about Jackson's mysterious death, which is the subject of a criminal investigation targeting the singer's personal physician, Conrad Murray. However the papers reveal information about a 1992 extortion plot involving...

    "Evan Chandler--father of Jordan Chandler, the boy who first accused Michael of molestation--committed suicide by handgun, sparking speculation that he'd perhaps done so out of guilt over the whole child molestation scandal that arguably started the downward spiral of the fallen King Of Pop's bizarre life. We shall never really know, and there was no suicide note at the scene."
