The massive amounts of news about Michael Jackson has finally begun to slow over the past few days, but the salacious stuff is just now starting to emerge. This is the stuff that would have never seen the light of day while Michael was alive and able to sue.
Tatum O'Neal says that she and Michael dated briefly. According to an interview she gave The Mirror, "He was a huge star but it seemed he barely even dated and knew little about life. He once came to my house and asked to come upstairs because he'd never been in a girl's bedroom before. He sat on the bed and we kissed very briefly, but it was all very awkward."
According to Tatum, this encounter took place in 1982.
The Sun meanwhile has interviewed Ian Halperin who has written a biography about Michael Jackson. In the biography, I an claims that Michael Jackson was gay and that he found two of Michael's former gay lovers who agreed to be interviewed for the book. Ian defends his accusations by saying, "Virtually everybody has told me. Even those who are his most ardent defenders, people who maintain he is innocent of the molestation charges, insist that he is homosexually inclined."
One of the men interviewed in the book states the first time he and Michael were going to have sex, Michael said, "The King of Pop’s going to lick your lollipop." Umm, yeah, that might be too much information.
In some good news to report, the custody hearing of Michael's children has been delayed a week. Apparently Debbie Rowe and Katherine Jackson are in talks that would see Debbie drop her claims in return for the promise that Joe Jackson never gets near the kids and has nothing to do with raising them. I don't care how much money Debbie gets for dropping her claim, because if that is really one of her conditions to dropping her claim, then that shows she actually does care about the kids to some extent.
Meanwhile, LaToya Jackson is going to make it her life's work to find the people who murdered Michael. She also thinks there will be another will that turns up because she can't believe Diana Ross was named as a back-up guardian for the kids if Katherine had died.
"We believe there is another will which will emerge. He updated his will almost every five years, so we expect one to come from 2007. Michael always told us that he wanted his eldest sister, Rebbie Jackson, to look after the children. Rebbie had a nice family, which Michael loved. He told many family members that she was his choice."
