MJs Bodyguards - We would like to wish everyone a happy & safe 4th of July. This was one of MJs favorite holidays. I remember buying MJ fireworks three days before the 4th, he just couldn't wait, he and his kids were setting off fireworks on July 1 at 1:00am in the morning :) Good times!

This has been answered in another threads. It's Ratner. He was a phoney friend who lured Michael to Miami on the pretext of a vacation but they stayed at Malnik's house who kept bringing up business discussion about the catalogue. While there, Mottola called Malnik, that when MJ became suspicious. I think he didn't hang out with Bret after that.

You might find more info using "search".

I think we can narrow it down. We all know he was cool or great friends with Donald, Chris, Liz and Whoopi, Brett is a movie person so I don't see what he would have to do with Michael's music affairs or why he would betray him and still friends through his trial. Stephanie Mill's was an ex girlfriend but she never said or did anything that might hurt have hurt Michael through the years. I never heard of much happening between he and Rick James good or bad but remember that God awful Secret Childhood documentary? Dick Gregory was on there saying "only in America can a young black boy from the projects can grow up to be a rich white man." I'm guessing that's not the only thing he said or did to piss off Michael.

They are back again to answer the questions :)

Q: Do you guys ever see the kids? How do you guys feel about Grace? She has said some awful things about Michael. I heard the kids don't care for her.

-
No we havent seen the kids, they are in our thoughts and prayers. As for Grace, LOL we cant go there yet.

Q: Did Michael play music instruments at home? I heard he used to play piano for his guests in Neverland.

-
Yes MJ played the piano often and sang in the house, it was simply amazing to hear him cause that was the side of him we didnt really know.

Q: When you worked w/ Michael did he ever visit Hayvenhurst? Did he stay there, or somewhere else in Encino?

-
During our watch, No MJ did not stay or visit either place.

Q: BJM...how has your relationships with one another changed since Michael's passing? Have you become closer as friends?

-
We became closer while working for MJ, we are closer now because of MJ.

Q: Did Michael Like Chicago or Did he just never have that city in hes Life.

-
He spoke of Chicago as being a beautiful city, very cold though.

Q: What were Michaels most watched movies you know of?

-
He didn't watch much television if at all, he mostly watched purchased movies.

Q: Did he ever listen to his brothers/sisters music? Did they ever get together and sing together?

-
No.

Q: How well do you feel you really knew Michael? Will you still honour what he considered to be secrets (I don't mean anything devious because I don't believe that he was anything like what the media wanted to present him as) or are you sharing those things as well? I haven't been following this too closely but I was curi...ous to know if you will still respect his privacy with things that he deamed important to be kept private.

-
To us MJ was not secretive, he was private. Certainly we know things that we consider personal and we'll never speak of, but having know him on a personal level we believe there are things he would have expressed himself if he could have, we will be his voice in those matters.

Q: Hey when is the book coming out?
my question is did Michael ever date a girl a lot younger than him?


- We are still working on a date release. He did take someone to a movie and dinner, not sure if he would call it dating.

Q: What was Michael's favorite drink?

- He and his kids drank a lot of bottled water.

Q: Hi Bill, MJ always said he was a workaholic. But were there sometimes when he just decided he was gonna stay in his pj's and just hang out in the house all day (and not work on his music,etc.)

- Funny you asked, he was always in his PJs, and yes he worked on his art often but he also took time out to do things with his kids.

My intuition is saying..... They will say that Michael had an affair with Grace. :smilerolleyes:

Nobody seemed to like Grace.....but I just have this sneaky suspicion that we will be seeing and hearing something from Grace in the media before this is all said and done.

I too wonder who the heck the BG's are talking about!? Rick James defended MJ on TV and Dick Gregory was the one that MJ went to after he won the trial according to Dick saying "don't leave me their trying to kill me" and then he took MJ to the hospital!

Whatever you think of these bodyguards, this is sadly very typical of the media. All they want to hear about MJ is dirt and if someone is not willing to add something like that to his book he will have it difficult to get it published (just ask Aprhodite Jones or Geraldine Hughes). So no wonder that in the most famous biographies you will always find some dirt (like Halperin's gay claims, Taraborelli's tabloid type stories etc.) - that's what publsihers want!

Here is what one of these BGs wrote on his Facebook a couple of days ago:

Sorry for our absence; We've been Relentlessly working on our book, however many publishers insist we write about more controversy and feed into the Media frenzy that made MJ distance himself from the world. We've been offered Millions of $$$ to disclose trash about MJ.....We HAVE NOT or WILL NOT turn our backs on Mr. Jackson, his kids or his fans. Thank you for your contined support, love and blessings! BJM

Well I think she would have loved that, because from what I've heard many fans saying is that she was very possessive of MJ. I believe something went wrong, because after all she was fired by MJ... and after his death rehired by Katherine. Hopefully bodyguards will tell something about her in the proper manner in their book.

I know this will be a truthful and honest book about MJ but can you at least put some truth in the book about Martin Bashir. Everyone may not know what a snake he is. Thanks.

-
Honestly, I don't think MJ would waste his time in putting Martin bashir on one of his albums so we are not going to waste our time speaking of him in our book.

Q: Did he like Harry Potter? :)

-
His kids did.

Q: I know that Michael told a lot of stories to his children and read a lot to them....Do you know if he read the wonderful fairytailes by our great danish storyteller H.C. Andersen? You know: "The ugly duckling", "The Emperors New Clothes", "The little Mermaid" etc.?... I hope he did :) I would love the children to know these stories...♥

-
If he had it he read it, and he had every fairytail story ever made.

Q: Did he used the web and visited forums about him?

-
He didnt do web searches other than Ebay.

Q: Do you know if he ever regretted of anything?

-
As for regrets, yes he mentioned a few.

Q: Did Michael speak/had the knowledge of another language besides English althought not fluently?

-
We've heard him speak Spanish and German, he spoke other languages we didnt understand, LOL

Q: What was he like with his friends? Did he have many good friends and close friendships?

-
Sadly enough, not many of his so called friends visited him, the one's that did come on business.

Q: When Michael had a day to relax, what were his favorite things to do on those days?

-
Just that....RELAX!

Q: How did he relax with 3 kids running around? lol

-
the kids knew when to give him quiet time.

Q: Since Michael was a "night owl" did he like to sleep late into the day? Did you guys ever have to wake him, or did he usually get up on his own?

-
He was up every morning, he had kids to feed.

Q: I wonder how his cooking tasted lol

-
As for cooking, he made us pancakes once.

Q: Were there any times or moments when Michael was in public and no one either recognized or bothered him? And did he try to go out by himself sometimes without security?

-
There were a few times we escorted him and no one recognized him, he would take long walks at night with a friend.

Q: Did Michael own a firearm? Did he own one for his personal protection? If so, what kind?

-
Interesting that you ask that.....gotta leave that for book though.

Q: Ok I know you said Michael didn't watch much TV but I guess he was still aware of what was going on in the world. Do you remember some events or news that made him react and what he said? Would he talk about the world and what were the things he sa...id or his main concerns during the time you were with him?

-
He didnt like the war.

Q: Did MJ ever talk about Neverland and what he wanted to do with it? Where was he planning on living after the tour?

-
He would have never gone back to Neverland.

Q: When MJ moved to LA again to BH did you know any of the bodyguards who were guarding him? and why didn't you continue to guard him in BH? I think you three took good care of him in Vegas and I am sure you would have done the same in LA.

-
Yes we knew them, and we were preparing for the tour.

I have no idea what these bodyguards will say. :unsure: I'm still surprise of seeing how they know so many private things for Michael. Sure, they probably saw some things, but from what I'm seeing, they know many things. :bugeyed They were employees, not friends or someone in the family of Michael. I'm sure there was a limit between employee and boss. -_- Michael has always been obsessed with his privacy, fact. I'm curious to see what they will say in this book. :smilerolleyes:

:doh: No comments to this question......

Some fans think that Michael was a caveman. :smilerolleyes: Of course he knew about everything that was happening in the world! :doh:

Sure, MJ was their boss, but they were with him whether he went somewhere or stayed at home, so in my opinion it's kinda logical they got to know him and the kids pretty well and possible became good friends :) You know, just like the bodyguards Karen Faye and Michael Bush worked for him and they became friends and know a helluva lot of things about MJ too.

Oh, of course..... :smilerolleyes:

Well, is there any true friend of Michael who has not gone around telling the privacy of Michael? I can only think of two people: Liz Taylor and Diana Ross. -_-

BUT, the problem is me, why I feel so upset by this invasion on the private life of Michael. I really do not like that because he was a man who loved have their privacy away from the eyes of the world. I can not do anything. Sooooooooooo the whole thing continues..... :bugeyed :unsure: *fear*
