Michael Jackson: Kobe Bryant’s Mentor

Kobe is always getting compared to the MJ of the hardwood, but in fact, another MJ may have helped to shape him more than we previously realized. Yahoo! has a fantastic piece on the relationship between Bryant and the late King of Pop (be sure to read the whole thing): “Bryant was the 18-year-old wonder for the Los Angeles Lakers, and no one knew what to make of a restlessness borne of a desperate desire for greatness. ‘He noticed I was getting a lot of [expletive] for being different,’ Bryant said. They would talk for hours and hours, visiting at Neverland Ranch, and Bryant has long been fortified by the lessons Jackson instilled about the burden of honoring true talent, about the ways to open your mind to be smarter, sharper and insatiable in the chase. ‘It sounds weird, I guess, but it’s true: I was really mentored by the preparation of Michael Jackson,’ Bryant said … ‘We would always talk about how he prepared to make his music, how he prepared for concerts,’ Bryant said. ‘He would teach me what he did: How to make a ‘Thriller’ album, a ‘Bad’ album, all the details that went into it. It was all the validation that I needed – to know that I had to focus on my craft and never waver. Because what he did – and how he did it – was psychotic. He helped me get to a level where I was able to win three titles playing with Shaq because of my preparation, my study. And it’s only all grown. That’s the mentality that I have – it’s not an athletic one. It’s not from [Michael] Jordan. It’s not from other athletes. It’s from Michael Jackson.’”

  • vtrobot

    that fashion shoot that kobe did makes more sense now. by the way, james brown is more important to the world of music than mike jackson was.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    I preferred Prince in his prime due to the fact he could actually play an instrument and compose music. Michael was greater than great, but like vtrobot said, James Brown was more important overall.

  • mjmedia09

    Kobe is referring to work ethic and he is telling the absolute truth. Michael has d secret son named Omer “Michael” Bhatti, who was the young mdn who attended the memorial and funeral with the Jackson family and said he “has a King’s bloodline. On Omer’s twitte page is a signed autographed photo from Kobe to “Little Michael” from 1999. Littler Michael was the nickname that MJ gave his son!

  • mjmedia09

    Michael is the greateft artist of all time which is evident from his influence worldwide! A FACT! Which is why some orchestrated an attack on him!

    MJ composed most of the music and played some of the music for his albums. For example that bass line in billie jean, he composed it, and that funky guitar that plays in the background is played by him. MJ was fanatic and perfectionist, and that track was a breakthrough in production as the snare drum sounds so good, and it has been sampled in thousands of hiphop, techno or whatever tracks, and it serves as an example on mixing music. There is a big interview with quincy jones, you can look it up about making of thriller and that track in specific as it is a bit louder and better mixed and a sort of a prototype for the mixing techniques and standards adopted later.

  • Hammer

    Michael Jackson IS the goat. James brown paved the way for him. MJ took it 2 a whole other level that cannot and will not b matched. From being the gr8est entertainer the world has ever seen 2 making 1 of the smartest business moves ever n buying and owning the beatles catalog. Thriller,n my mind,is the gr8est album of all genres and of all time, and that’s coming from me,an ol skool hip-hop fiend! “Billy jean” my all-time fav song. That song was lightyears ahead of its time! Then u got songs like “Dirty Diana”,an underrated gr8 song,”Smooth Criminal”,”Wanna be starting something”,”The way you make me feel”,”Who is it” and list goes on and on. LONG..LIVE..MJ..THE KING!! No doubt!

    Bizarroworld here. Jacko was a mutant. I will always remember the day or day after he died, they interviewed shaq at the end of a game and he said something to the effect of ‘i want to send congratulations out to those kids and their parents, I know theyve been waiting for this day, its a big day for them.’ paraphrasing there. Eff jacko, sick person.

  • JTaylor21

    Prince, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, and Bob Marley are all better artists than Mike. Mike may have sold more records than those guys but he’s NOT better.

  • mjmedia09

    Those cases were SCAMS and you know it which is why Evan Chandler shot himself in the head after MJ was murdered! And the JC Penny shoplifting boy and his family couldn’t even organize their lie in that 2005 case. They changed the timeline 5 times. First they said it was before the Bashir aired to tie to MJ holding his hand during the interview. But that created a conflict with an interview they had with Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes where they praised MJ and he was the reason the boy survived cancer. So they finally moved it to after the Bashir documentary aired which contradicts the sinister image implied from holding his hand. So after the boy and family were interviewed by the Division of Child Service they decided it happened after that. Couldn’t get their lie straight and of course MJ had kidnapped them. Lol This is the ridiculous case brouht against Mj using taxpayer money! If Mj were a predator that
    DA would not have had to work that hard to find victims since Mj had 100′s of kids at his ranch!

  • mjmedia09

    Mj was not pedo! What a sham of a case and witchhunt orchestrated against Mj which is why the father of the boy in the 93 case shot himself in the head! And please don’t bring up that JC Penny shoplifting family whom the mom accused the security guard who stop them of sexual assault! Lol Their lies were so poorly out together that they claimed Mj molested the boy and kidnapped the family AFTER the Bashir documentary aired which contradicted the sinister images implied from MJ holding his hand! Lol

    if MTV had been around for james brown, he would have been bigger than mike. worldwide dominance became much easier during michael’s era. hip hop owes so much to the hardest working man in show biz. i’ll take those who put more into the music and less into the show (i.e. mr. marley)

    Also Prince and MJ were friends although Prince tries to downplay it! But once Prince and MJ were at his playing pool and one of his lady friends dropped by and you would never believe but Mj flirted with her and the joke had it that Mj stole Prince’s girlfriend. Lol Mj was not the caricature image portrayed in the media. As Teddy Riley said he was a Playa! Lisa Marie was right when she said Ml brokeup her marriage.

    This ^^^ guy is crazy. Whered he come from. Jacko had crazy money. So why would he settle out of court more than once on that type of charge. Innocent people dont settle on that kind of charge. And he had the money to fight it til the end, but he settled, why? Looks very guilty

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Tarzan
    I can’t agree with you there. I don’t know whether Mike was guilty or not, but since civil trials often allow all kinds of claims to be made, I can imagine that MJ saw it as smarter to just settle out of court. Some of the claims that can be made in a civil trial cannot be made in a criminal trial because of the difference in how the law works. Plus, the burden of proof in a civil trial is preponderance of evidence, while in a criminal trial its beyond a reasonable doubt.
    That’s a massive difference.

  • JTaylor21

    Tarzan, you can also ask Why would a father not cooperate with authorities but instead file a lawsuit in the middle of a criminal investigation as legal extortion? Why would you want his money! Let’s take this a step further. The 1993 investigation of Mj began in August 1993. The settlment came in January 1994. Why was the
    Chandlerf not cooperating with authorities Before the settlement! Huh? Now from d legal perspectives a lawsuit settlement does not prevent criminal charges from going forward. But as a accuserd you would never want a civil trial before a criminal. So it made legal sense for mj to settle.

    Im not gonna pretend to be an expert on jackos legal situations. Would any of you let your kids sleep in the same bed as jacko? Didnt think so. He was a very talented artist. But just based off what he did to himself, a sick person. ………..

  • The Philosopher

    I love Michael Jackson. Always will.
    He has transcended race like no other in the history of popular culture. He has affected the lives of more people in a positive light than any other artist. More than Bill Cosby. (and that is saying something) More than many world leaders.
    Now, I believe that he was guilty. I believe a man should fight to prove his innocence until it kills him. Michael Jackson never did that. That is a problem to me. He came off too much money. Your reputation exceeds all monetary considerations, in my opinion.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    I wouldn’t let my kids sleep in the same bed as you.
    Are you therefore sick?
    You’re better than that Tarzan.
    I agree that Jackson had some obvious issues, but I don’t know for sure whether he was guilty of being a pedophile. There was definitely some strange behavior, but given the actions of his accusers, there are a lot of questions. But, I understand why some people are convinced he was a pedo because that’s how people often roll with pedophelia accusations.

  • The Philosopher

    What convinced me that Michael Jackson was a pedophile was how he dangled the child out of the balcony in Antarctica, or wherever he was. You just do not do that. He would not have done that in the United States for obvious reasons.
    To answer Tarzan Cooper, hell no. But, I would not trust anyone with my kids, outside of family, friends. Period.
    He was a very, very touched soul. All the way back to his childhood. I believe he was molested, but that does not matter.
    But, it explains a lot of his tendencies.

  • truthteller

    MJ was a playa and had the girls! Believe that! I don’t why he chose to hide this from the public but he wasn’t gay and he definately was no pedophile! I know a few cats who knew him pretty well and they said he was getting the ladies! lol

  • Jackie Moon

    Jackson taught Kobe how to avoid charges.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Allen, no shtt you wouldnt let your kids sleep in the same bed as a stranger. These parents knew jacko in some shape or form. And the parents are at fault too. Again, im not gonna pretend to know everything that happened. Theres no fire, but a hell of alot of smoke. …. And phil, antarctica? U must have failed geography. But I had forgotten about that. Wasnt that in italy? He seriously dangled a BABY by its foot(right?) from at least a 2 story balcony. And didnt get in real trouble. He did it on purpose, not like the baby slipped or anything. …theres no proof jacko did anything to the kids, but those sick fukks on to catch a predator hadnt done anything, they were most likely going to try to, but didnt. And they got in massive trouble, as they should have. ….. If it was such a scam, how come it hasnt happened to any other celebrity? If its just the parents out to hustle, how come it hasnt been done to other celebrities?. Cosign phil that jacko didnt fight it very hard, sure he denied it, then shelled out millions, instead of using that money to fight the case. Jacko should have been a catholic priest.

  • Mike from Spain

  • The Philosopher

    Tarzan:
    There are plenty of situations of celebs getting brought through the wringer.
    Celine Dion got extorted, more than once.
    Bill Cosby has been extorted.
    And, it was Germany where Jackson nearly dropped the baby with the towel over his face. In front of a mob of idol worshipers, no less.
    During the Reagan administration, there was a person of authority who did not want Michael Jackson to visit the White House. There was a report that at that time, Jackson molested a Mexican boy, and paid him off. It got out, but was swept under the rug.
    Jackson paid off many kids. Too many for me to think he is innocent.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Phil, I know many celebs have been extorted, but I meant for the same as jacko: multiple pedo allegations. And I agree with you 100%, hes paid off alot of kids/parents. And thats just something innocent people dont do, esp with that kind of accusation. Like I said before, theres no concrete proof hes guilty, but theres metric tons of smoke.

  • MJMedia09

    Tarzan, that so called “multiple pedo allegations” means NOTHING in this era of GREED!! See when you have a deep pocket ANYONE can accuse you but it’s about BREAKING THE DETAILS of the cases and I can do that!!

    Let’s go to 1993. In August 1993, Evan Chandler claims MJ molested his son and he takes him to a “therapist” who is required by law to report the claims. HE NEVER HAD THE CHILD TALK TO POLICE. So, the criminal investigation is lauched. IN the middle of that criminal investigation, Evan Chandler FILES A LAWSUIT, BEING A PROFESSIONAL SCRIPT WRITER, isn’t a big task. The Case is settled in January 1994 which means MJ could have been arrested BEFORE the settlement if there was evidence. Why wasn’t Evan Chandler cooperating with Police????? LEGAL EXTORTION. Because his attorneys KNEW in such a case, there is NO WAY IN HELL a lawyer would tell their client to seat before a civil trial BEFORE a criminal trial. Let’s go to the 2005, the mother WHO claimed her child was molested takes him to the SAME THERAPIST as the 1993 case?? You get the picture. SCAM!! If Michael had molested your child, would you be doing this crazy shi.t or fighting for JUSTICE??

  • MJMedia09

    In fact, I’m convinced that MJ was involved in a CONSPIRACY to ruin him. If this was black having this conversation on the phone about “getting what he want” from Michael Jackson or some white celebrity, he would have been ARRESTED FOR EXTORTION. But in MJ’s case, the DA, Tom Sneddon, who CNN after the MJ verdict, mentioned his links to the KKK, was able to DRAG MJ’S NAME IN THE MUD FOR NOTHING!!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzVBY9WQnok

  • MJMedia09

    See I deal with DETAILS not mentioning bogus cases. I WANT TELL YOU ABOUT THEM. Who was Evan Chandler? HE WAS A HOLLYWOOD SCRIPT WRITER. Interesting the media FORGOT to tell the public he was trying to get MJ to invest in a MOVIE which is how that scam started. PROOF!!! See I’m about TRUTH!!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilSk9qt4wtY

  • MJMedia09

    Let me break down the 2005 accusation that WENT TO TRIAL and a MOSTLY ALL WHITE jury acquitted MJ. Now remember the Bashir Documentary that created the suspicion of MJ molesting the child? MJ meets the family because the boy had cancer and they claimed he had 2 WEEKS TO LIVE. He lived longer and as he told in the Documentary that MJ is the REASON HE LIVED. Now MJ discusses how happy he was that Gavin survived and the media took the photos of him holding Gavin’s hands and turned it into something sinister. Strangely this family had a background of CONNING PEOPLE. When the same boy was caught shoplifting at JC Penny’s, the family were caught outside in the parking lot and confronted by security. The mother accused security of “MOLESTING” HER. Get it!! They would sue JC Penny’s who happened to settle to avoid the BAD PUBLICITY. So their next target was MJ!! “My kids is dying and he wants to meet you..before he dies in 2 weeks.” *roll eyes* So, MJ who has a HISTORY of supporting terminally ill children FOR 20 PLUS YEARS, NEVER had one say he molested them until this con family who couldn’t even get their lie straight. Do you realize they claimed MJ molested the boy AFTER the Bashir documentary aired??? Do you really want to know why a juror didn’t believe story?? They believed MJ over a “cancer child.” SOMETHING WAS DEFINITELY A LIE!!

  • MJMedia09

    Also Tarzan stop making up LIES to legitimize bogus cases. I have never seen a child molester go on trial and WIN A CASE WHEN THERE IS EVIDENCE NEVER!!! And you want to know something strange. Tom Sneddon, who was the DA who went after MJ for over 20 years and found NOTHING belonged to a Church that molested 34 BOYS. NO LIE!!! What did Tom Sneddon say about this???

    ~~~~
    “He (Sneddon) was a parishioner at the Santa Barbara Mission when it was revealed in the early 1990s that 34 boys had been sexually molested by 11 Franciscan friars who helped run St. Anthony’s Seminary next door to the Mission.

    “Pat (McKinley) and I used to go to church up there, and we were clueless, just clueless” of the molestation cases back then, said Mr. Sneddon, speaking of himself and his second-in-command. ”
    ~~~~
    He was clueless because he was too busy focusing on Michael Jackson then REAL PREDATORS.

  • The Philosopher

    Michael Jackson allegedly had all of these legal “advantages”. More of a reason NOT to settle.
    Is it true that a genuinely innocent man is going to spend that kind of fortune if he was in possession of all of these “loopholes”? Many can argue on the contrary, for one would think that that kind of fortune would be spent on NOT settling.
    If Evan Chandler speaks to police, during a trial, Jackson’s lawyers would discredit him quite easily, no? He is a child under cross examination by a world class attorney. The therapist is the reason Michael Jackson settled all of those cases.

  • MJMedia09

    The IRONY AND HYPOCRISY in How MJ is treated is he is guilty if he fights and guilty if he settles. IN 2005 HE FOUGHT AND WON and they still say “he’s guilty.” In 1993, he settled “why didn’t he fight?” HYPOCRISY. If you had gone on trial afte 20 years, WHY WOULD A DA NOT HAVE THE EVIDENCE TO PROVE THEIR CASE????? Why would an MOSTLY ALL WHITE JURY in a conservative area of Santa Barbara believe MJ over a cancer child? Why didn’t Tom Sneddon produce VICTIMS???? THE PROOF???

  • MJMedia09

    Philospher, you are not using common sense. MICHAEL DID GO ON TRIAL IN 2005 AND THE 1993 CASE WAS ALLOWED TO BE ADMITTED. So, MJ was tried, not only on the 2005 case, but the 1993 case too. Duh!!!

  • MJMedia09

    Here’s ABSOLUTE proof that the case in 1993 was bogus.

    So, why did he settle?

  • MJMedia09

This is a NEW ERA OF MEDIA, MJMEDIA09!!

  • The Philosopher

    As you’ve alluded to, he has won.
    He has won other cases outside of that realm.
    He has sued people and won.
    Suspect.

  • MJMedia09

    philospher, it doesn’t matter if he settled or not HE WENT ON TRIAL and the 1993 case WAS ADMITTED. End of Story. Maybe you should be asking is WHY did the father ask for money. I have a youtube video, from my private collection, of the father discussing on phone conversation “getting what he wants.” If he were black, he would have been arrested for EXTORTION.

  • MJMedia09

    See the media hid certain details of the case from the public that would have vindicated MJ. They hid it because THEY WERE GREEDY TOO. They made more money off that scandal and they think the truth would not have made as much. I like the family in 2005 discussing being kidnappned and trying to escape in a HOTAIR BALLOON at Neverland. Or at a steak house when they claimed they were KIDNAPPED. LOL They can’t turn that 1993 or 2005 cases into a movie because it would turn into a COMEDY. And please don’t ask about that so called description of MJ’s genital. I laughed for days when I saw what was suppose to be graphic details. It was a house.

  • MJMedia09

    Question. The DA who went after Michael for over 20 years belong to a Church that molested 34 boys. NO LIE. This was DURING the 90′s when MJ was under investigation. What did Tom Sneddon say about it?
    “Pat (McKinley) and I used to go to church up there, and we were clueless, just clueless” of the molestation cases back then, said Mr. Sneddon, speaking of himself and his second-in-command. ”

    See if MJ were a REAL MOLESTER, there would have been NO WAY IN HELL to hide victims. And some are trying to lie about other settlements but if there were WHY WAS THE 1993 SETTLEMENT SO PUBLIC???? MJ was around 100′s of kids. Why were they working so hard, flying around the world and had to create victims AS LIES to make it stand?? For instance, Mac was molested but Mac testified underoath, HE WAS NOT. You don’t have to work this hard to find victims WITH A REAL molester.

  • The Philosopher

    As I’ve alluded to, Michael Jackson has won cases against people he has sued. You know that.
    If he were innocent, he would have proven it in a manner similar to past cases, no?
    Why did he settle with anyone?
    More than once?

  • MJMedia09

    @philosopher, in the family that accused Michael were involved in a settlement with JC Penny’s. When the boy that accused MJ was CAUGHT SHOPLIFTING, the security guard approached the boy and his family in a parking lot. The mother accused security of “molesting” her. Do you know JC Penny’s settled with them? Not because the guard was guilty but because of BAD PUBLICITY. So they said, let it go. Now in MJ’s case, I’ve explained how Evan Chandler and his lawyers were GREAT CON ARTIST. Because in filing the lawsuit in the MIDDLE of a criminal investigation they ensured MJ would settle because NO lawyer would want a Civil trial before a criminal trial. It’s called DOUBLE JEOPARDY. If you go to my youtube channel, I have video of EVAN CHANDLER THE SCRIPT WRITER who was trying to get MJ to invest in HIS movie. MJ has given away so much money to charity to the point he doesn’t care if he gives it away to settle a suit. But in the 2005 CRIMINAL TRIAL, EVERYTHING WAS ADMITTED. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CASE WHERE A CHILD MOLESTER IS ALLOWED TO WALK WHER THERE IS EVIDENCE!! NEVER!!

    Back on topic, I have PROOF Michael Jackson has a secret son named, Omer “Michael” Bhatti. And in a few minutes, I will post the photo that Kobe gave Omer in 1999, a signed autographed photo from Kobe to “Little Michael.” “Little Michael” was a nicknamed that MJ called Omer. So I believe Kobe HAD TO BE CLOSE TO MJ TO AUTOGRAPH THAT PHOTO THAT WAY. I WILL POST THE PHOTO!!

    Phil, GIVE it UP trying TO DEBATE with THIS guy. HE is CLEARLY SOME kind OF MANAICAL fan.

  • The Philosopher

    MJ:
    One can argue that J.C. Penney has less to lose than Michael Jackson. That “bad publicity” does nothing to J.C. Penney. You know this, also.
    Jackson, on the other hand, has much more to lose. And, he did lose.
    Now, believe me, I love him as much as you do. I know about his son. Everybody knows about his son. You are not producing anything new under the sun with me when it comes to Michael Jackson.
    As a matter of fact, we can REALLY get it in and talk about why he turned white, AND why he molests little boys.

  • The Philosopher

    Look, on the Bashir video, he is molesting that kid. Period. If he was not, then my definition of molestation differs from another’s.
    Hanging kids off of balconies.
    Settling for millions upon millions of dollars because he is “innocent”.
    Please.
    It does not matter that he is the most charitable performer of all time.

    @philospher you know how DISTORTED that Bashir documentary?? You said “looking at the video” MJ is molesting him? So, MJ holding his hand after the boy PRAISED MJ for saving his life is molesting him?? But how ridiculous the CON FAMILY IS. Do you realize, the boy accused MJ of molesting him AFTER the Martin Bashir documentary aired. The Division of Child Protective Services interviewed them and they said NOTHING HAPPENED. Then they claimed the day AFTER the interview with DCFS, Michael molested the child. LOL If you think he molested him based on the video, they weren’t claiming that. LOL

  • The Philosopher

    Distorted?
    You know better than that.
    Jackson was caressing the boy’s hand with his thumb while they were holding hands. The cameras were all over it. That boy resting his head on Jackson’s shoulder.
    The boy was turned out.
    Then, the audacity for this man to come out and tell the world that he sleeps in the bed at night with little boys.
    All of the pictures of naked boys all over his house. How he cried during the trial when called out on it.
    Again, Mike is The G.O.A.T. and all, but if it looks like a duck, smells, tastes, etc…
    And, it is apparent that you cannot tell me anything new about Michael Joseph Jackson.
    And, my definition is different than yours, then. I respect that.

  • rich

    so thats why he dances on dudes so much

  • MJMedia09

    Philospher, did you miss the point. WHY DID THEY CLAIM MJ NEVER MOLESTED HIM UNTIL AFTER the VIDEO AIRED!!

    Also, are you child molester. MJ wasn’t holding his hand in no special way unless you see it that way. I’ve seen MJ hold a LOT OF CHILDREN’S HANDS THAT WAY, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO WERE TERMINALLY ILL. Why is he the only terminally ill child MJ would have had an interest in molesting???? Do you think he molested Ryan White too??? He was the hemophiliac boy who contracted aids who ADMITTED before all these scams that he would stay in MJ’s room and eat popcorn and play video games and he had the BEST TIME OF HIS LIFE. MJ also bought him a Corvette. MJ DID THIS ALL THE TIME.

  • MJMedia09

    Also, you are following the LIE!! Michael NEVER said he sleep in bed with boys. That’s YOU. MJ said childen ask “Can I sleep with you” and he said “if it’s okay with your parents.” Nothing sinister. They turned it into someting sinister because that’s how WICKED AND EVIL some people are. But like I said, they couldn’t even get their lies together. Why do you think a JURY would believe MJ over a suppose Cancer child and his family??? Think about that? And this was a mostly ALL WHITE jury in a CONSERVATIVE part of Santa Barbara.

  • MJMedia09

    Also, in the Bashir documentary, Michael said “share” not as in sleeping in the same bed but as you share things. So he said I GAVE MY BED TO GAVIN and SLEPT ON THE FLOOR. He told him “you can have the bed.” The strange thing, Micahel wasn’t the only one in that room that night. His family and 1 of MJ’s friends also stayed in that room that night like a camp out.

  • MJMedia09

    The problem with Michael was he was TOO KIND and this world wasn’t made for people like him. But then again, 100′S OF TERMINALLY ILL CHILDREN stayed overnight at Neverland and STRANGE, Gavin and his family made these claims after REQUESTING to meet Michael through “A Make A Wish Foundation.” That was a setup coming because they KNEW they could get in MJ’s house with the “I’M DYING” BECAUSE MJ HAD HEART OF GOAL AND DO ANYTHING FOR TERMINALLY ILL OR SICK CHILDREN. HE DID IT ALL HIS LIFE.

  • MJMedia09

    And the thought those WICKED PEOPLE can even think MJ would molest a child with Cancer is beyond EVIL especially after attributing MJ to saving his life. “Michael said see the pacmen as eating all the cancer cells.” DEVILS!!

  • The Philosopher

    MJ:
    I admire your passion.
    Now, it does not matter who claims what. A fact is a fact. He was behaving in an intimate manner on camera in front of the masses with that little boy.
    Michael cannot help himself. But, that is a whole different conversation. Anyways…
    So, you’ve seen Michael hold hands in an intimate manner with many a children? Then you’ve theoretically seen him in a way, molest many a children, no? Depending on how one sees things.

  • The Philosopher

    And again, everything you are posting up here is common knowledge.

    I’m not a BLIND FAN BUT A TRUTH SEEKER. And I have proof both 1993 and 2005 were SCAMS. Strange how we’ve had a trial in 2005 even bringing in 1993 and have a father WHO BLEW HIS FKING HEAD OFF after MJ passed probably GUILT and all you can say is “I think he did it” with NO PROOF. Well I have proof he is INNOCENT AND YOU RATHER IGNORE THAT.

  • MJMedia09

    You know who was at the home when Tom Sneddon raided Neverland? MICHAEL’S SON, OMER “MICHAEL” BHATTI but he was in his late teens. I know why the media is trying to shut this story about MJ having biological children down, because it would prove those scams were LIES.

  • MJMedia09

    As Promised, here’s the autographed photo that Kobe Bryant gave to Michael’s son, Omer “Michael” Bhatti, signed to “Little Michael” in 1999. Little Michael is the nickname given to his son.

    Tanks, Tarzan.
    MJ:
    How would a boy being in the house prove that they were lies?
    I understand other variables proving things to be lies, but…
    There are many people with multiple biological children who are pedophiles.
    And, people shoot themselves all of the time.
    And again, study the Bashir tape.
    Michael Jackson is pimping that little boy. Do not study the re-released tape. Study the original tape. Michael had problems.

  • MJMedia09

    @Tanks, you are dealing with A PRO who researched EVERYTHING ABOUT THOSE SCAMS.

    I wrote this back during the case. Remember the Bartin Bashir Interview aired on FEBRUARY 3, 2003.

    Having Michael molest Gavin from February 7 to March 10, 2003 defies the logic of a molester. So, it doesn’t even have anything to do with the assumption of Michael’s stupidity.

    If you were a child molester and had known the child since 2001, it defies the logic of a child molester to have had the opportunity to molest the child on MANY OCCASSIONS and chose not to when as a molester you have NO CONTROL over your temptations to molest. It is the very reason you see many molesters who would molest in a store with surveillance camera’s filming them, IN A PUBLIC STORE. A molester has no self control to be able to not molest a child for 2 years and then molest him for a month when investigated. That’s the illogical nature of this entire argument that Michael only molested Gavin from those dates indicated.

    It was because of LWMJ that people were suspicious that Michael was molesting Gavin. The holding hands and Gavin admitting sleeping in Michael’s bed ARE THE REASON THE CPS BECAME INVOLVED, an organization WHO HAS TRAINED EMPLOYEES FOR ABUSE AS THIS ORGANIZATION “SUBSTANTIATED” A CLAIM THAT THE ARVIZO FAMILY MADE AGAINST THE FATHER. So, you mean to tell me, Michael decides to ONLY molest Gavin WHILE the investigation is occuring?:rolleyes I CAN REPEAT IT ENOUGH. THE TIMELINE KILLS THIS CASE!

  • MJMedia09

    Do you NOT REALIZE they claimed MJ molested the boy THE DAY AFTER the Martin Bashir documentary AIRED WORLDWIDE??? If you claim, you knew he molested him based on how he held his hand, why did they only claim it happened AFTER IT AIRED??? Do you realize they claimed NOTHING HAPPENED until AFTER IT AIRED??

  • The Philosopher

    I mean, everyone sees things differently, I guess.
    Time lines mean nothing to me. I go on what I optically witness.
    And, I do not care about your “credentials”.
    And, he is only going to molest someone who is more vulnerable than some famous child. Easier to “turn out”, and their word holds less weight than Jackson’s, as which was proven time and time again.
    You should know this though, for you are a “PRO”, no?

  • The Philosopher

    Again, it does not matter who claims what.
    It depends on one’s definition of molestation.

  • Nashty

    I listened to the song Michael Jackson did with Shaq a few days ago and it was great. I think MJ is a little weird but all geniuses are like that. Too bad there were too many blood sucking leeches around him trying to get a piece of his fortune.

  • MJMedia09

    Optically witnessing something is NOT FACT. The family claimed it happened AFTER the documentary AIRED. Having Bashir zoom in on MJ holding his hand and adding some sinister music to it does NOT make molestation. That’s where I think some of you need to READ what they claimed because it’s obvious the media has TRICKED YOU INTO BELIEVING WHAT WASN’T EVEN CLAIMED.

    They claimed MJ molested Gavin AFTER the Bashir documentary aired when MJ was under INVESTIGATION. GET IT!!!! So stop creating your own story and follow WHAT THEY CLAIMED. They also claimed they were KIDNAPPED at this time but because of the publicity, Ed Bradley then of 60 Minutes came to the house AFTER the Bashir interview aired and he discuss being at Neverland on February 7, 2003.

    Taken from the February 8, 2004 interview with Ed Bradley on Larry King Live as he discussed his visit to Neverland on February 7, 2003 after the Bashir interview aired.

    BRADLEY: We sat there for hours waiting. It was his people. Mark Geragos just started at the head of his legal team at that time.

    KING: This was before the charges were brought, now, way before.

    BRADLEY: Oh, yes. In fact, the kid who is now charging him and his mother were there that day.

    KING: Really?

    BRADLEY: We sat in the kitchen having coffee and doughnuts and sodas and his mother and the kids said they were willing to go on television to say what a great person Michael Jackson was.

    KING: Back to last February when you met the mother and the kid, what did you think when you heard it was that mother and that kid?

    BRADLEY: I was stunned because they were there to tell me that day what a great person he was.

    KING: But you were shocked that the kid — that was the kid?

    BRADLEY: I was shocked that that was the kid because both the child and his mother were praising Michael and were sitting there in his kitchen eating and saying what a great person he was.

  • The Philosopher

    Yeah.
    And, what happened to Geragos?
    Michael fired his ass.
    Anyways, I again have to tell you I admire your vigor, for I am as big a Jackson fan as you.
    So, would someone sick or sane dangle a child off a balcony in front of a mob of people?

  • The Philosopher

    And, again, behaving intimately with a child is molestation to me.
    Pardon me if I am mistaken. (even though I am not)

  • MJMedia09

    Behaving “intimately” with a child. Holding his hand??? By the way did you see Gavin lean his head on MJ’s shoulder? Did he molest MJ?? I think there is so much REAL SICKNESS in the world and less compassion. That’s why you see holding hands as molestation. This society has made you think that way. And con artist can USE society’s thinking to hurt innocent people. MJ was NAIVE and innocent.

  • MJMedia09

    Michael was happy that Gavin had 2 weeks to live and had gotten rid of the Cancer Cells. That’s why MJ was so happy. Gavin and his family told MJ that he was the reason Gavin Lived! But I think the 2 weeks to live story was a LIE to get in MJ’s home.

  • Spade

    way to slant the article SLAM. I hope most of the readers go to the original article and read the full thing.

  • MJMedia09

    Michael explained how he was holding BLanket tight. And he’s done that before with Paris. I have video of it. When fans are yelling up to him, he would get excited to please them. They would yell “let’s me see the baby.” He showed it. But it’s not like throwing you baby up in he air and catching it or driving without your child in a seatbelt. He was holding Blanket in a tight grip.

    Tarzan, Philosopher and everyone else who thinks MJ is a pedo (I used to believe that too)…Jackson settled the first case, only. The second one was where he said enough is enough. He challenged it, and was found innocent. Not one evidence was brought forward that pointed to MJ as a pedo. Also, the child in the first case confessed his father made up the whole child molestation thing just to get rich, although he did say it after his father committed suicide, so he wasn’t there to defend that claim.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Endswing, clarification: it was not after a game. It was a lisa salters interview on the day he was traded to cavs, same day jacko died. I remember it seemed like a game, must have been some sort of event.

  • The Philosopher

    MJ:
    So, why did not Jackson remove the blanket from the kid’s face instead of “holding him tight” over a multi story building balcony?

  • Nonya

    @ “The Philosopher”: If you have to ask questions like “why did MJ cover his kids faces” you clearly have done no research on the man—let alone the court cases.

    So how is it that you have formed an opinion about the settlement, the court case, and who Michael Jackson is as a person?

    He covered his childrens’ faces as a safety precaution so when they did go out without their father and without the masks, not a single soul would recognize them. Thus, allowing his children to have as much of a normal childhood as possible considering the circumstances of their father’s celebrity.

    “Childhood” was very important to Michael Jackson considering he didn’t have one himself; he was very much forced to become an adult at a young age. He was very outspoken about how the lack of childhood and the broken family dynamic we have now, is what’s killing the world. For anyone who has actually followed Michael Jackson’s life closely, you could never say he’d hurt the ones he has dedicated his life to save.

    It’s plain ignorance that has people calling this innocent man guilty.

    Instead of arguing in the comments section, why don’t you actually research the matter if you’re so passionate about it: read the transcripts, watch the rebuttal videos, delve into the families history of past extortion attempts against other celebrities, how Chandler only cared about getting custody of his son after learning of his son’s friendship with a millionaire (Michael Jackson). The children were victims of their parents, not Michael Jackson; they used their children to get his money.

    If you had put an iota of effort into researching the matter, you would have seen this. That alone exposes the ignorance of all who claim Michael Jackson was a pedophile. It’s so obvious he didn’t do it, for you to call him one screams that you haven’t researched a damn thing.

  • The Philosopher

    ^^Giving his kids a better life by hanging them from a balcony with a rag over their faces.
    And, by the way, there is nothing about Michael Jackson that you know that I do not.

  • The Philosopher

    You know what? I was not going to do it. But, now I will.

    What about the book Jermaine Jackson penned that was not released because of the dirt in it? He would know Jackson better than we do, no?
    What about Jermaine Jackson having to break up a group session when he caught Michael in the bed with his own nephews?

  • The Philosopher

    What about the time when Michael and Jermaine were kids? When Joe Jackson took Michael into a room to a meeting with some power players while Jermaine stayed in the lobby. Then some time later, Joe and Michael come out of that room with the power players. Michael, according to Jermaine, looked all spooked, and wide eyed. Jermaine asks Michael what was wrong. Michael never tells him. Jermaine always believes to this day that Joe Jackson forced Michael to “service” those power players in that meeting to secure a deal.
    See, sh1t like that only comes out for a minute. I don’t research Michael Jackson?
    Well, challenge me.

  • Chi

    I love how the ones saying “Michael is a pedophile” are using tabloid stories as their “research”, haha.
