I said it the other day and I’ll say it again: can Michael Jackson not just rest in peace? In addition to the seemingly endless allegations of sexual molestation popping up against him, now his former maids are hard up for cash and selling their “stories” about Michael’s alleged filth and lack of hygiene to the New York Post, of all God-forsaken papers.
According to the former maids, Michael used to piss on the floor, track animal shit in the house and was basically just a disgusting human being.
Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The Post.
“Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track .?.?. poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No.?1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.”
When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, Calif., ranch for an interview in 1993, it was pristine. Floors were waxed, walls scrubbed and windows power-washed.
It was after she, guest Elizabeth Taylor and TV crews left the next morning that the real Jacko appeared.
“He literally peed on the floor of the entryway, right where you saw Oprah walk in. It was surreal. He just stood there, unzipped his trousers and watered the floor,” Maid No. 2 said.
I dunno, I just can’t see it. He threatened to make “doo-doo snowballs”? I mean… LOL and all, but WHAT?
The maids also claimed that his bedroom reeked and that he hated them changing his bedding so they’d have to sneak in there to do it. They also said that he was a “depraved drug addict” who always babbled unintelligently and used to piss himself regularly.
Maid No. 2 said only Jacko’s main closet, which held his trademark black tuxedo pants, loafers and sequined jackets was kept immaculate.
The most scurrilous item Jacko held onto?
“I’d say there were two,” recalled Maid No. 2, who worked at Neverland from 1994 to 1996. “A soiled baby’s diaper, and a pair of Fruit of the Loom that was obviously worn by someone who was either a teen or an early-age adult.”
He also kept a dart board in the foyer of his bedroom with pictures of DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg — who he believed had stolen his idea for the studio and even its boy-on-the-moon logo.
“Any of the children he played with who hit the bull’s-eye would get extra ice cream or anything else they wanted,” said Maid No. 3, who worked from 1996 to 1999. “He hated those guys with a passion. He was surprisingly very anti-Semitic. He’d lead some of the kids in chants: ‘Kill the bastards,’ and ‘Kill the bloodsuckers.’?”
I just… don’t have words for this. There are some sick people out there, yes, but I feel like it’s the maids here that were the real sickos.
Do you think any of this is true, or just more people trying to exploit a dead man?

Michael Jackson was the focus of a lot of controversy during his lifetime, the most famous (and awful, if true) of which were the multiple sex abuse charges for molestations he allegedly committed against underage boys. While many of the witnesses and defendants were found to be unreliable or flip-flopped on their stories, the sheer volume of “victims” was enough to cast doubts in the mind of much of the public, and it unfortunately tarnished what was an incredible musical legacy.
Of course, Jackson has been dead now for several years, so it seemed that all of the uproar would have faded away… but of course it hasn’t. In fact, there are now new charges against Jackson by now-36-year-old James Safechuck, who claims he was molested by Jackson when he was 10-years-old during the filming of a Pepsi commercial in which they both appeared.
After multiple visits to Jackson’s home (some of which were chaperoned by his parents) and several all-expense-paid cross-country trips, Safechuck joined the pop star on his “Bad” tour, which is when he alleges the first incident of sexual abuse occurred.
Though specifics of the abuse claims are redacted in the papers, Safechuck says it first happened at the Hotel de Crillon during the Paris portion of Jackson’s tour.
The papers allege Jackson gave Safechuck jewelry as a “reward” for sexual favors and taught him code words so others wouldn’t learn about their sexual activities.
Of course, the Jackson family has denied this and gave a statement to E! News on Wednesday, refuting the claims.
“Mr. Safechuck’s request to file a late claim against the Jackson Estate so he can recover money from Michael’s beneficiary will hopefully be rejected,” says the statement. “This is a person that made his claim five years after Michael died, more than 20 years after the incidents supposedly happened and has given sworn testimony that Michael never did anything inappropriate to him.”
But uh, back to Safechuck and his fuckery:
Claiming he was the first to stay at Jackson’s famed Neverland Ranch after it was built, Safechuck states in the papers that the pop star “installed chimes in the hallway to his bedroom” so he could be warned of people approaching and had a “secret closet” in his bedroom where he engaged in sexual activities with Safechuck.
During the four years that Safechuck claims the abuse took place, Jackson engaged in sexual acts with him “hundreds of times – on tour, at Plaintiff’s home, at DECEDENT’s apartment/condominium … at DECEDENT’s … Condominium … and at Neverland,” the papers say.
When Safechuck hit puberty at 12 years old, Jackson began “grooming him for separation [that] spanned several months” and focusing his attention on a younger boy named Brett, Safechuck claims. Eventually, Jackson stopped sexually abusing Safechuck but continued supporting him financially and put him in touch with industry people to guide his career, he adds.
There’s actually going to be a case (against whom, I’m not exactly sure, considering the defendant is not only not there, but uh… not alive?) in September surrounding these charges.
I’m not sure what to think, to be honest. I certainly don’t think it’s completely impossible that Michael Jackson was a child molester, but I also don’t 100% buy into it. On the one hand, I feel absolutely awful denying any potential victim’s experience, especially if the abuse is true. On the other hand, it’s an unfortunate fact that famous people are the victims of shit like this often because it’s easy money for awful human beings who see nothing wrong with ruining someone’s life and reputation by accusing them of unthinkable things.
What do you guys think?

Michael Jackson‘s kids – Paris, Prince and Blanket – were never going to be short on cash. They were born rich and they’ll die rich… but just how rich? Well, just for reference, these underage children get upwards of $8 million per year as allowance. That’s so, so much money… but what do they spend it on?
- Prince has spent more than $50,000 on custom-made jewelry for three of his girlfriends, plus $40,000 on a new Ford pick-up truck. He wants to save enough money to buy back his father’s Neverland Ranch, currently in control of creditors with an asking price of $35 million.
- Paris also likes to buy gifts for friends, including shoes and athletic gear. The annual cost for her to stay at a therapeutic boarding school, following last year’s suicide attempt, is also in the six figures.
- Blanket likes to take his cousins to dinners at expensive restaurants; their nights out, which also include trips to the movies, typically come to about $500 plus tips. He also spends $200 an hour for karate lessons and a personal trainer.
- The kids also take three vacations a year, totaling $350,000 including first-class airfare and security—in Hawaii, they stay in a $5,500-per-night suite; in Vegas, they sometimes rent the Bellagio’s penthouse suite, which can cost as much as $5,000 per night.
Oh man. Well, okay – now I’m severely depressed. Here’s what a source told the publication about the financial goings-on of the kids:
“These things that they’re doing they are mostly paying for themselves, with their own money. Look, they also get $15,000 to $20,000 every month just in walking-around money. No one else has that kind of dough around here,” one source said.
“This is why you have had so much of the fighting going on in the family. But the battles have calmed since their uncles have finally found consistent work and everyone has pretty much left [Katherine] alone about money.”
Still, family members believe the children are a lot more frugal than their father was with his.
“They’re not [as bad] as their father .?.?. They also seem to have more of a sense as to when they may be going overboard,” the source said.
Wait, so they get an extra $20,000 ON TOP of the $8 million allowance? WHAT? How is this a thing? The mind boggles… but I guess when money seems endless, you don’t really have to think of how you spend it.

The worst thing about being a celebrity is that when you’re alive, you can’t get any peace from the public and paparazzi and when you die, well, they still won’t give you any peace. Instead, they bring you back in hologram form like they did to Michael Jackson at the Billboard Music Awards last night (and Tupac at Coachella in 2012, lest we forget).
Michael “performed” a song called ‘Slave to the Rhythm’, from the new album that’s just coming out now… years after his death. Isn’t it great that record labels can make money off you even long after you’ve stopped breathing? Apparently it took six months to put the performance together and it was almost cancelled last minute due to a lawsuit, since a few tech companies said that the producers were using their technology to make the performance possible.
I dunno, I don’t find this to be “cool” or creative or anything. I think they should let dead performers be dead, enjoy their past work and move on. What did you guys think?

One of the best and worst things to happen to the world is technology. On one hand, it’s allowed so many brilliant things to happen – the Internet, fancy phones, medical advancements, etc. On the other hand, it means we can now “bring back” dead musicians to allow those that are still living to make a mockery of their career by “duetting” on “new” songs. Such is the case with Justin Timberlake, who sang “with” Michael Jackson on a new single called ‘Love Never Felt So Good’.
This song isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever had, but I’m so weirded out by this whole process (y’all remember the Susan Boyle/Elvis debacle) that I just can’t take it seriously. NOPE.

You’ve gotta love living in a country where a physician can be indicted for murder (which he was pretty much guilty of – or at the very least, SERIOUS malpractice) and still practice medicine. I mean, really? Conrad Murray – who, if the name doesn’t ring a bell, gave Michael Jackson the shitload of drugs that eventually killed him – is back in business, and I’ve lost all faith in the medical field.
Conrad Murray now has a chance to improve his success record in treating patients … because he’s back in business.
TMZ has learned the patients this time around will be children with heart problems. Murray has taken a gig with the Trinidad Ministry of Health, where he’ll be consulting with local heart surgeons.
Murray won’t get rich off the new job — he’s volunteering his services, but it’s definitely a foot in the door. His medical license has been revoked in Texas and suspended in California and Nevada.
The government wants Murray to use his U.S. contacts to help hook up the sick kids.
Uhhh… no. I just don’t even have words for this. We’re trusting him with CHILDREN now? CHILDREN WITH HEART PROBLEMS? In what universe is this a good idea?
Waiting for the first fatality under his care, because you know it’s coming. :(
