Jackson Update on Will, Drugs, Paternity

Jackson Update on Will, Drugs, Paternity

KTLA reports on TMZ news that Jackson is not the biological parent of his children, nor is ex-wife Debbie Rowe. And Us Weekly suggests that LA dermatologist Arnold Klein, who employed Rowe as a nurse, donated the sperm for Prince Michael 1 and Paris Michael? Is this credible? UPDATE: Rowe’s attorney insists she is their biological mother.

UPDATE: The Daily Beast quotes an unnamed Jackson insider with a thesis: Jackson was trying to provoke a brief hospital visit to get out of starting his tour.

The Wall Street Journal digs into the issues surrounding Michael Jackson’s will, which appears to have been made in 2002, and leaves out father Joseph Jackson. The late singer’s three children are in their grandmother Katherine Jackson‘s custody until a July hearing. For now, Jackson’s mother also has limited control of his assets, reports the LAT. Jackson’s estate executors have been named. He is believed to owe $500 million, but his assets should cover that, leaving his estate with some $200 million. Also, his songs are selling like hotcakes. The funeral is still up in the air.

Time examines in grisly detail why Jackson has had two autopsies.

MTV reports on the drug sweep at Jackson’s house.

UPDATE: People Magazine posts a video photo montage of Jackson’s changing face. Watching a VH1 special the other night, I was reminded of the joy he brought to performing. Watch his face show not only changes from plastic surgery but increasing sadness.
