Michael Jackson: Michael Jackson's Home To Become Open To Public

If you're a Michael Jackson fan you might be in luck his former home aka Neverland Ranch might become a state park which means you may be able to visit his home. According to reports, plans have been made to make the land, which is co owned by the Jackson family and a private equity firm Colony Capital, available to the public. Residents have previously protested against making the site a tourist attraction, but if all the plans go ahead fans will be able to visit the King of Pop's former residence. California assemblyman, Mike Davis, told Associated Press: "Given that we have an economic shortfall... I suspect it would be difficult for the State Parks Department to purchase the property alone... I am committed to finding out all details possible to make this a good proposal". Although it was his home, Jacko did move out of the house in 2005 after it was raided for evidence after his 2003 arrest for child molestation charges.

Michael Jackson: Neverland To Become A State Park

Michael Jackson’s former famed residence Neverland may become California’s newest state park.
A resolution is in the works that has state park officials examining whether the 2,600 plus acre estate could in fact be converted in to an attraction, that could result in profitable revenue for the cash strapped state.
The plan to convert the property is being rallied by California Assemblyman Mike Davis and the state’s NAACP. Davis firmly believes that the Santa Barbara County estate would draw millions of visitors from around the globe. California’s NAACP President Alice Huffman, who is also on the board of the state’s parks commission, says, “I think Michael’s history is world history, and I think it would become the No. 1 attraction for the state parks if we could pull it off.”
Huffman also thinks that in addition to celebrating Jackson’s musical and cultural contributions, Neverland could join the ranks of state parks, which would honor African Americans like Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park in Earlimart, Calif.

Michael Jackson: Wanted His Monkey to Talk!

MICHAEL Jackson wanted his pet chimp Bubbles to talk — according to the tragic singer’s sister, LaToya.
LaToya claims the Thriller hitmaker — who died last year after suffering a heart attack following an accident drugs overdose — spent a fortune trying to get leading throat specialists to implant vocal chords into his furry friend.
Michael always wanted to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk,” she told Britain’s News of The World.
“They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me said ‘You got to see this — he mimics everything I do’. So Michael starts brushing his teeth and Bubbles looks up and gets a tooth brush and starts brushing his teeth too.
“Then he wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are’.”
Michael had to let Bubbles move out of the family home in Encino, California, when he got too big in 1988.
“The trainers who came to the house felt the situation wasn’t normal and he shouldn’t be there,” said La Toya.
“Bubbles became extremely strong. When he was younger he would slap you and it would not hurt. But now they could knock you out. Sometimes he would swing on a chandelier and fly onto a table, and Michael would scream ‘no, no’.”

MJ's death so Joe Jackson blames his wife

Michael Jackson's father blames his wife for their son's death.
Joe Jackson has admitted he accused Katherine Jackson of not doing enough to stop the late Thriller star - who died of acute Propofol intoxication - abusing prescription drugs, just hours after he passed away last June.
Speaking of their confrontation in the mortuary, Joe admitted: "Katherine was weeping uncontrollably and highly upset. But I didn't give her a hug because I was mad at her crying.
"I said, 'If you had listened to me Michael would be living now.' I kept thinking about the times I had stood in front of her saying something was wrong.
"I couldn't bottle up my feelings. Katherine didn't say a word - I had to get away from her. If she'd done what I asked, Michael would be here today. I am incensed with her. She could have made a difference."
Joe - who was accused by Michael of beating him during childhood - claims he asked Katherine several times to intervene in the King of Pop's problems because he knew the star wouldn't listen to him.
He added to the News of the World newspaper: "In Michael's final months alive I said to her many times that I couldn't get through to him - and that she needed to help her son.
"I had begged her to go over and stay with him, but she insisted he needed his privacy and gave him the slack she thought he needed. A child will listen to his mother more than his father - and Michael was a mummy's boy."
Despite his accusation, Joe, 80, also holds himself responsible for Michael's death because he was unable to get the singer's planned 50 date London residency reduced.
He explained: "I wish I had made him walk away from those shows. I knew he would never make them, but I never thought he'd die.
"I tried to help Michael, but I feel I could have been more aggressive in getting access to him."

Michael Jackson's doctor appears in court.

Michael Jackson's relatives have attended a court appearance by the doctor accused of giving the singer a lethal dose of powerful anaesthetic.

Dr Conrad Murray, 57, has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. During a brief procedural hearing in Los Angeles, Dr Murray's case was assigned to Judge Michael Pastor.

Judge Pastor adjourned the case until mid-June, when he is expected to rule on whether to revoke Dr Murray's medical licence pending the full trial.

Dr Murray's lawyers are fighting that move, saying he needs to practise medicine to pay for his defence.

"He is, without fear of overstatement, hanging on by a thread," they said in court documents.

Dr Murray has previously been ordered not to administer any anaesthetics as a condition of his $75,000 (£49,050) bail.

According to US reports, Dr Murray's legal team is to argue that Jackson accidentally killed himself by injecting himself with Propofol.

At the preliminary hearing, scheduled for 14 June, Judge Pastor will decide whether there is enough evidence to go forward with a jury trial.

If convicted, Dr Murray faces up to four years in jail.
