I never quoted Friedman for truth. I saw the Granny Gate play out for MYSELF. In fact, at the time this happened, I don’t think Friedman had much to say. Btw, what information do you need to know? This is not something that was made up by the media. This ACTUALLY happened. It has nothing to do with Roger Friedman. Members of Michael’s family tried to take over his children’s guardian ship, so THEY could control his money. Janet didn’t want her family bothering HER for money, so she thought she could take Michael’s money. She has never been the one supporting that family. Michael was the one who supported his family financially while was alive, and even in death through Katerine.
Yes. I saw it too. But that's the thing. No one knows exactly what has happened. We know bits and pieces and you all are jumping to conclusions and assumptions and speculation, thinking you know it all. But whatever. As always, people believe what they want to believe. And I guess you overlooked that other petty shit that was in Friedman's "article".

Are Paris, Prince and Bigi even still in contact with Michael's brothers and sisters?
Prince is in Tito's recent music video for Love One Another, so is Joh'Vonnie and several other Jackson family members & other celebrities. All of the siblings are in it except Rebbie & Randy, but some of their children are in it. Mike's two sons have a movie reaction channel on Youtube with Tito's son Taj called Film Family. But they haven't posted anything since March 2020, which is when Covid hit and a lot of movie theaters in the USA were shut down for a long period. There's also a video of Paris singing in a club with Rebbie's son Austin Brown. I think it was around 2017.

Yes, we know what happened. Katherine actually lost custody of Prince, Paris and Bigi for a while. This was not some made up media story, Jatherine was very vocal and upset when she lost custody. The only way she got custody back was TJ, Tito’s son agreed to be a co-guardian of his cousins if the judge would allow Katherine to have part custody again. The Estate then bought Katherine and the children a new house in Calabasa, instead of them living at Hayvenhurst. Things had gotten so bad that the Estate actually banned all of those involved in the Granny Gate from coming to the new house. Jermaine was going around to the media saying” This Is My Mother’s house, and they(the Estate) can’t keep us from coming. The Estate did keep them from coming, because the bottomline is Michael’s family was angry that he didn’t leave his money to them, instead of his own children. Michael’s children didn’t have anything to do with those involved a long time. Of course, they have probably forgiven some of them by now, because they are forgiving like their Dad, Michael. You are correct, SOME people believe what they want to believe because they don’t WANT to be.ieve Janet was not only involved in this, she was the RING LEADER. What really bothers me is some of you actually think is is something made up by tabloids, when ALL of us who were around at that time, basically saw this fiasco play out In real time.
If you don’t want to believe it because it was Janet involved, that’s your right. However, you are not going to change history and act like it didn’t happen. There are court documents, eye witnesses, surveillance video, etc. to PROVE this happened. Also, Michael’s children KNOW it haPpened because they were DIRECTLY involved.

Just saw the videos posted above, what a mess, Jesus. One thing can definitely be concluded from this and that it was a mess. Are Paris, Prince and Bigi even still in contact with Michael's brothers and sisters?
They have always been involved with their cousins, because they love them. I still don’t think they have that much to do with Janet, Randy, Jermaine or Rebbie.The only reason that they may have something to do with Tito is because Tito disinvolved himself from the mess by taking his name off the original document when Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie were trying to take over Michael’s Estate. They also love Tito’s soms, Taj, Tarryl and TJ.

And in your views/opinion was it that Murray murdered Michael or did he give him too much or did he just walk away from monitoring the whole process?I didn't follow the trial for Murray back then, but was it neglect? Did we lose this amazing human being because of neglect of a "doctor"?

Overall, I don't know, can a human even live as long as he did if he got propofol administered so much? This stuff is incredibly heavy, also, isn't it pretty much completely illegal too? Weren't all those doctors back then basically doing illegal, forbidden things in their profession?
Michael Jackson died apparently because at that night he was given too much of Propofol (Propofol overdose) in conjunction with the presence of other drugs in his system (such as, narcotic painkillers).

Dr. Conrad Murray stated that he only gave the singer 25 mg of Propofol at that night, which was a lower dose than usual, but his claim does not seem to make sense according to medical experts.

For instance, Dr. Richelle Cooper testified that such a lower dose cannot produce any level of sedation and it would not be a sufficient dose in most patients.

Especially, considering the fact that (in his final weeks) the singer had already become Propofol tolerant (because he was being given that drug for many years), so for each new time he needed larger doses of it for achieving the desirable effect for him (to fall asleep).

Propofol of course can lead to cardiac arrest if it is taken in combination with narcotic painkillers (such substances were also found in the singer's system).

Most of those doctors around him used to do basically illegal, forbidden things in their profession, but it was not only that.

It is believed that also pharmacies were also involved in that illegal, forbidden activity.

Doctors would call the pharmacy and say Michael Jackson was coming down to get a certain drug (Demerol, Propofol, etc) and then the pharmacy would give that drug while intentionally leaving the patient name blank on the prescriptions.

This shows how Michael Jackson used to obtain such powerful drugs so easily for so many years.

If all that's true, that he willingly reached for Propofol and Demerol (even after the song Morphine) nobody really could have stopped him I guess. Several people that knew him have said Michael was stubborn and didn't easily accept the word "no", basically.

I mean I can't imagine having Insomnia, so I do get that after having tried every "healthy" solutions there are and didn't help that he'd try this and apparently it helped him and who really could have been the one to tell him to please stop with this if he was this dead set on getting it. But apparently he went overboard with the stuff, if he actually got immune for it, goddamn.

If even the pharmacies were in on it, Jesus. All for the money?

But that's, if that's all true of course. I keep hearing different sides and it's hard to conclude (is it even possible?) What's what.

During the trial, the murderer, Conrad Murray, tried to act as if Michael reached for or increased the dosage of Propofol. The Assistant DA and experts blew that bs out of the water. Murray also said that Michael woke up and increased the dosag, thus TRYING to portray Michael as desperate. The Assistant DA again proved that scum Murray was lying. Murray’s girlfriends were called to the stand. They all testified that he was on the phone with each one of them while he was SUPPOSED to be monitoring Michael. The last girlfriend that testified said that while she and Murray were on the phone, she heard a gurgle or some noise and Murray said some expletive and got off the phone. That murdering SOB knew that Michael had probably gone into cardiac arrest.

After Michael died, Murray spent OVER an hour, trying to cover up the murder and save his ass by planting things. It was even brought out during the trial that he had stuffed drugs into Michael’s mouth to make it appear that he was taking narcotics. The autopsy proves that there were no drugs in Michael’s system other than what Murray had INJECTED in him. The autopsy also said Michael was very healthy for a man his age.
The bottomline is that Murray’s NEGLIGENCE is what killed Michael. If he had monitored him, Michael would still be alive. I have no doubt of that. Murray should have been tried for MURDER; however, the DA said that a jury may be deadlocked with that charge, Thus, the reason they went for Manslaughter. He was convicted overwhelmingly. After the conviction, the judge spoke and said he had never been so disgusted with a defendant. He also said that if he could have given Murray more time, he would have. I forgot to add that POS Murray actually recorded Michael he was under the influence of Propofol or something other drug that Murray had given him. He wanted to portray Michael as a drug addict and his defense team played the slurred speech recording in court. WHAT DOCTOR DOES THST KIND OF @#$&? Even under the influence of whatever Murray had give him, Michael was talking about how he wanted to build hospitals all over the world for children. That recording not only sealed the murder’s fate, it showed that a man who had been falsely accused was not talking about sordid things, he was PURE OF HEART. Murray shouldn’t be walking around on this earth for what he did to Michael. He not only tried to act as if Michael killed himself, he tried to portray Michael as an uncontrolled addict and neither thing was true. The jury didn’t buy the bullshit, and that’s the reason he was convicted. Murray is a Disgusting bastard!😡😡🤬

I have no words for all of this. And I think I heard that audio recording. At first I thought it was fake because things are so easy to fake nowadays, but it might have been very real.

I never said that nothing ever happened. Obviously stuff did happen. Embarrassing stuff at that. But the narrative around it is pure speculation. We don't know the ins and outs, the motivations of the people involved and the information everyone involved was acting on. To say that Katherine was kidnapped is pure speculation. To say that Janet was the ringleader is pure speculation and a baseless accusation. To say that it was a ploy to get Michael's money is speculation. And don't act like the people not buying into the narrative popular among MJ fans, who use every chance to shit on his family, were not around too to witness the public stuff. I saw it unfold too. I'm not changing history, I'm just saying we don't know every detail and a lot of the narrative you're so convinced of is just that, a story trying to make sense of it. Speculation. Accusation and nothing more. But whatever. Believe what you want to believe. I said my piece.

What is your view on the whole Randy Jackson thing during the 2005 trial? I mean I probably shouldn't even care too much, but I'm curious why MJ distanced himself in his last days. One side tells me it was because Janet kept bothering him about touring, which he didn't want and that Randy claimed Michael owed him money, but at the same time it was randy that messed up MJ's finances during the trial, tried to sell the catalog, didn't pay his people etc. It's quite a lot to take in and also....we as fans know all too well how easy someone can just write or claim something. Is there a source for all this? Because I'd just like to do some reading up on things.

It’s not speculation about what happened. Janet had her doctor tell Katherine that she needed rest. That’s fine. However, how do you take three MINORS’ guardian and grandmother away without allowing them to even speak to her for almost 10 days? All of the children were upset, Paris was the most vocal. All Janet, Randy and the rest of them had to do was allow Katherine to talk to her grandkids and they would have been fine. THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM TO SPEAK TO THE PERSON WHO HAD FULL CUSTODY OF THEM SINCE THEIR FATHER’S DEATH. The police became involved. That is NOT speculation. That is FACT. Even Marlon Jackson, Michael’s brother, came out PUBLICLY
and said he didn’t know where his mother was. That is NOT speculation. That is FACT. It is also not SPECULATION that Katherine actually LOST CUSTODY of her three grandchildren and had to go to court to get them back. This is a FACT, whether some of you want to try and rewrite history or not. She didn’t lose custody based on SPECULATIONS.

This entire fiasco came about when Janet( her name was first on the document), Randy, Jermaine, Tito( he later took his name off of the document. I don’t know if he realized what they were doing was wrong or he became scared) and Rebbie tried to insinuate that Michael’s Will wasn’t valid. They didn’t accept that John Branca and John Mcclain were the executors. This is when Janet and the rest came up with the scenario of taking Katherine ( “granny napping”) Away from Michael’s children. They were trying to say she wasn’t well enough or capable of raising these children, and either Rebbie or Janet could take over the duties. who were there in the house with Prince, Paris and Bigi say that Janet actually sent over some people to try and get Michael’s children to go with them. They told the children that if they went with them, they could see their grandmother. The kids REFUSED to go with these people. I’m sure the body guards would have stopped them anyway, if they had decided to go. The question is “ Why would Janet send her people to get Michael’s kids, when she wouldn’t even allow Katherine to speak to them on the phone? If they had gotten control of the kids they could have fed the media any scenario they wanted. THEY were already feeding the media the lie that Paris was out of control because she questioned why they couldn’t speak to their own grandmother. I truly believe that Katherine did NOT know what her own children were scheming. That’s why she was so surprised when the police came to the resort looking for her. Sadly, tthey would have gotten away with this, IF Paris hadn’t been so vocal about the whereabouts of her Grandmother.

Finally, it’s great that Janet supported Michael in the documentary. That’s what he would have done for his sister as well. That does not change what happened AFTER he died and what she, Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie tried to do, in order to get custody and control of her brother’s will and his kids money. I dare anyone of you to say that you wouldn’t have been all over Michael, if the tables were turned. These are the FACTS. You don’t have to like or agree with them. However, you are NOT going to change those facts to fit YOUR narrative. Not going to happen.🤷🏽‍♀️

@somewhereinthedark

So if I understand this correctly, Michael left his money to his mother and his kids and nothing to his sisters and brothers? They weren't happy about this and then basically tried in a rather dirty way to get a hold of the money anyway?

As for John Branca, I had read somewhere that Michael didn't like Branca at all, now I am starting to doubt that if he was ok with having him as the executors.

Yes,Michael left his money to his mother, and his three children, There is also a provision in the will for children’s charities. Michael has basically been the bread winner for that entire family, except Janet. He is the one who they turned to when they needed money. That is the reason they badgered him to tour. They needed the money. Michael is the one who paid for every niece and nephew’s education who attended college. Michael is the one who paid his brothers child support payments to their ex wives, when they wouldn’t pay them. Margaret Malganado said in her book, NO ONE ELSE IN THE FAMILY helped her and her 3 children , when Jermaine decided to leave her”, EXCEPT Michael. Jermaine refused to provide any financial support for her or their children. She did say that one day Janet came and left groceries. I’ve always heard people say, “ Why couldn’t Janet help her family, also. To have all of the burden on Michael, is it any wonder that he distanced himself from them? They were always harrasing him for money or to tour.

As for Branca, he and Michael did have a falling out at one time. However, Michael brought back Branca AND Frank Dileo when he decided to do the This Is It Tour. I also want to remind people, who conveniently forget or just don’t know, that Michael’s Will specifically names John Branca AND John McClain as CO-ExECUTORS of the MJ Estate. Branca is the most well-known and most vocal because he is an attorney. John McClain,is a black music executive , who used to be an executive at A&M records, who also helped launch Janet’s career.

Australia apparently edited the part out where Janet said Michael was innocent 🙄🙄🙄. That country has been messed up in this, I guess because Wade is Australian? So is Brett Barnes, of course…

Someone recently posted on Twitter that the part was back in. I don’t know if that’s true or not.

Man, I didn't know any of these. Mike was financially supporting each and every one of them? So basically his brothers and sisters could just sit back, relax and not do a thing and get money for the things they needed?

How did this information got out, during the whole thing with Katherine and the custody of the children?

Most of this information has been known for YEARS before the situation with Katherine and custody of the children. It has always been known that Michael was the “cash cow” who supported his family. This was the main reason they didn’t want him to go solo. This was the main reason they badgered him to go on tour and then claimed it was a “drug intervention” AFTER he died. This is also the reason that I am so happy that they are NOT the ones running the MJ ESTATE. They would have depleted that Estate by now and Michael’s children would have nothing. Michael knew this and that is the very reason that he put his Estate in the hands of John Branca and John McClain. He trusted them to run his Estate professionally and to make money. They HAVE, making over 2.5 BILLION since Michael’s death with projects that have increased his LEGACY and they have AND to make money for the Estate. Remember, that is the job of an Estate- TO MAKE MONEY- and no Estate has done that as well as Michael’s .

The most recent update came in her Essence magazine interview she just did for their July/August issue. She says that fans have been asking about it but she has no current plans to release it or even any new music/singles period.

Direct quote:
"It’s so funny because I see the fans asking, “When are we going to get Black Diamond?” “Will you please release?” Sometimes things happen that you don’t expect to happen, and you have to figure things out—or you’re in a space in your life when you have to take a step back and take a break for a minute. Even though it’s something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job. There will be music at some point. Exactly when? I can’t say just yet, but there will be. I love it too much not to do it. This is all I know. There’s so much that I want to do—but my number one job is being a mama."
