Michael Jackson Justice: Michael's Guardian -John Branca Pays Lip Service to Fans

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Michael's Guardian -John Branca Pays Lip Service to Fans


John Branca Pays Lip Service to Fans
Via Friedman….Again




This will be a short blog because it is not really one I had planned to do.  However, there has been some every-so-subtle movement in the Branca Camp and I’ll just bet that little stinker thought I forgot about him . . . but I didn’t.  I am still watching and what I don’t catch, others send me info to check on.

Not that I for one minute labor under the delusion that Branca is worried about lil’ ole me, but other “certain fans” are using the focus of some newer introductions of the same old documents to try to win fans over, suggesting erroneously that Branca ever had Michael’s interests in mind.  Perhaps he did at one time, but certainly not primarily, as he should have of a client of that caliber and with all the money he has made off of Michael.  But then Michael knew this and that is why Branca was fired, wasn’t it?

Let us look over a few things that were sent to me:

Original Goldman Sachs deal - Source
Original Goldman Sachs Term Sheet - Source

The 2003 letter from Branca to Charles Koppelman - Source dated July 28, 2003

Ammended Agreement which is dated August 23, 2003 – Source.     Roberts version of same document - Source

The “secret letter” from Branca is the same one that was included on Johnnie L. Roberts “The Wrap” series.

I want to REMIND people that this is no new revelation.  It is also obvious that despite the efforts to appear to have been working “in Michael’s best interests” as I have seen some facebook comments assert, the fact is that these notes were an “after-party” if you will, to the deal originally presented.  There is an awful lot of documents just showing up after the fact and for what?  Branca is not worried about what fans may think of him, why the sudden appearance of “secret” letters and the new push on articles about Branca’s supposed good will toward Michael?  Is he losing clients or something?

Let’s take a look at this article in Showbiz411  from Branca’s “other” spouse, Roger
Friedman:

The Michael Jackson estate has spent $159 million so far cleaning up his finances and taking care of his mother and three children. Let’s recall Katherine Jackson’s assertion — particularly through new business partners– that she’d been left high and dry by the executors. In fact, the estate paid off the mortgage on her Encino home, called Hayvenhurst, and is currently renovating. The estate is paying for temporary digs for Mrs. Jackson, her employees, and the children in beautiful Calabasas, California.

***************************************************
 - The “Michael Jackson Estate” aka, John Branca et. al. according to Friedman, has spent $159 million and let’s stop there.  $159 million.  In this, Friedman includes living expenses for Miss Katherine and Michael’s children, paying off cleaning up finances AND paying off Hayvenhurst and renovation.  Michael’s bills, if you go by the press reports, ran anywhere from $230 to $500 million.  The estate, if you go by press reports and Randy Jackson’s twitters, has taken in $1 billion.  Since refinancing the Sony/ATV loan, we know THAT bill wasn’t paid off.  $159 million subtracted from $1 billion leaves a lot of money.  Especially since Branca and his harem of lawyers and accountants caused the massive debt of Michael’s to begin with, over a period of about 20 years before Michael finally fired the lot of them.

*******************************************

It also turns out that Michael –no surprise here–filed no tax returns for 2006, 2007, or 2008. So the estate and its accountants, according to a petition filed with the court, has rectified all that. According to the petition, the estate has also loaned Mrs. Jackson large sums of money so that she and the children can live properly.

 - Filing tax returns is what Michael Jackson pays ACCOUNTANTS to do.  Since Whitman was fired in 2006 while extracting $100K a month for himself while paying absolutely NO BILLS for Michael and obviously filing NO TAX RETURNS, we need to give proper credit where credit is due.  Branca also should have checked with Raymone Bain and Tohme Tohme about tax returns for those years for Michael’s various businesses, because according to the research I did, Michael’s tax bills were taken care of during those years and since NO LIENS were ever filed by the state of California and no judgments ever brought against Michael for anything other than non-payment of insurance on Neverland and employees pay, which was taken care of before Neverland was closed down.  Michael’s finances were all over the press, why not unpaid tax bills?  How did THAT ever escape the press?

Peter Lopez probably could have given Branca that information but, we know what happened to HIM . . . As far as Mrs. Jackson being loaned large sums of money, this is a lie.  How do you “loan” money from an estate to beneficiaries of that estate.  Roger, jealous much?

***********************************************

The funds will be repaid when her trust account, left to her by Michael, is funded.
The estate has also fended off 65 different lawsuits, including one by a man who said Michael stole his formula for healing herpes. Most of the suits were frivolous, but all had to be dealt with. According to the petition, the estate has also restructured Michael’s famous gigantic loans, reducing the debts considerably.”

 - Wait . . . what is this?  Didn’t Branca (or was it Weitzman?) already report that the trust was fully funded and this is why they didn’t/couldn’t/wouldn’t pay off the Sony/ATV loan?  The estate fended off 65 different lawsuits?  Really?  Wasn’t this included in the $500m debt sum?  What’s the matter John?  Being a lawyer too much work?  You expected Michael to deal with all those lawsuits when he was with us, and he’s not a lawyer.  Perhaps it is John Branca’s wild spending habits and not the lawsuits they are now fielding . . . hey, if that lie is good enough to print for Michael, it’s good enough for you. 

There is also the guy accusing Michael of stealing his formula for healing herpes (prayer?  Can that be stolen?) Maybe he is the same guy who stole Michael’s logo idea for Dreamworks?  Why don’t you ask him?  You represent him too, right?  Oh, that’s right . . . that’s McClain’s deal.

*******************************************

One thing that Michael Jackson’s super fans might take note of –the executors came in and revised the agreements Michael had signed with AEG Live. Of course, those agreements were not made with Michael’s current lawyers, but through his former manager Tohme Tohme. When Michael died, he was already in debt to AEG for $40 million. That number came from expenses Jackson had incurred before even starting to perform in London”. Source (of all quoted blue above)

 - Executors revised the agreements with AEG Live. What agreements, Friedman?  Michael was DEAD before Branca was an executor, wasn’t he?  How did he revise agreements between Michael and AEG if Michael was DECEASED?  Michael doesn’t have any “current” lawyers.  Michael’s ESTATE has a fraudulent EXECUTOR (or three…) 

So all you SUPERFANS (Friedman jealousy starting to show), take note and remember . . . John Branca the SUPER-LAWYER, despite his POSTHUMOUS attempts to appear to be Michael’s friend was NOWWHERE NEAR MICHAEL during that trial, and though invited, DID NOT BOTHER TO COME TO THE FUNERAL OR THE MEMORIAL, and neither did John McClain.

Actions speak MUCH LOUDER that Roger Friedman’s twice-terminated words.  You would think that Branca was aware of how familiar Michael’s fans are with Friedman’s contempt for Michael before hiring him to repair his reputation.


King of Poppers
sent to me by Spotlight:

Michael Jackson: The King of Poppers, According to Author of Addict Nation Jane Velez-Mitchell

While the circumstances of Michael Jackson's death may have seemed shocking, they shouldn't have surprised anyone, according to the new book, "Addict Nation," by Jane Velez-Mitchell

For Immediate Release  Press Release source http://eworldwire.com/pressreleases/212061
 
 - This is from a press release and of course, the person is hoping to sell a book so Michael’s name just HAS to be mentioned.  If you read the whole press release, you will realize that this person knows absolutely nothing about Michael nor does she know anything about the drug Propofol.  How is this woman an expert?  This book looks like another “Taraborrelli Tabloid”, this one capitalizing on famous overdoses.

If she were smart, she’d at least wait until Murray’s trial is over to avoid looking stupid when the truth comes out.

******************************************

“The singer left £247million in debts but his popularity has remained high and his estate is finally heading out of the red.

Soaring sales of merchandise, an album of previously unreleased songs and the film of his This Is It concert have enabled administrators to pay off £98million.
The papers reveal a payment of £555,000 was made to the cemetery where Jackson is buried, while £22,000 was spent on “costumes for memorial”.

Tax bills were £17.8million while £3.3million went to family members and properties he owned.

His three children, his mother Katherine, and various charities were named as beneficiaries in the star’s will.”  Source

This one is just another slant from Branca’s press-defense team.  I can look up the conversion in American Dollars but I’m not going to.  I don’t need to do that to make my point so I will just make it:

First the mention of the £98 million in euros (I guess) would work out to be about what, $250 million in the dollar? (I am picking numbers out of the air because by the time Obama gets done, that is about what the conversion will be).  Of course it doesn’t seem to mention just how much the estate took in from all the afore mentioned revenue.

Papers reveal £555,000 for the cemetery that does not even have Michael’s name engraved on the tomb after almost 2 years of “paying rent” there.  £22,000 for costumes for the memorial?  This is the memorial that none of the family friend/executors attended when invited, right?  The memorial that was financed by AEG and now Branca is taking credit for paying that bill too?

£17.8 million in tax bills . . . was this on what the estate earned posthumously?  If what they say they took in is correct, that would be about right.  Then the £3.3million that went to family members and properties he owned, fails to mention how much the executors claimed for their own.  At least this source itemized what went to the family.

Keep an eye on the timing of all this, “super-fans” and don’t get bought.  It is apparent that Branca is either distracting (attempting to cover the selling of the Sony/ATV to Sony maybe?) fans or perhaps other artists are unwilling to end up like Michael and are leaving in droves.

Hint to Branca:  It might be a little less obvious if you could use someone other than Roberts and Friedman to write your P.R. since they’ve already been long exposed.

I’m sorry this is so late, but Sunday is a busy day usually and we had a family issue to take care of.

God bless you and DON’T let this stuff distract you.  It’s press, we know it and we know how Michael felt about Branca.  Stay on the path.


Foolin' No One, Branca-baby

  3. Bonnie,
    What a load of old tosh that Friedman article is!

    Bonnie said "Executors revised the agreements with AEG Live. What agreements, Friedman? Michael was DEAD before Branca was an executor, wasn’t he? How did he revise agreements between Michael and AEG if Michael was DECEASED? Michael doesn’t have any “current” lawyers. Michael’s ESTATE has a fraudulent EXECUTOR (or three…) "

    Ah but remember, Branca claims that Michael rehired him on 17 June 2009 - so this would be how he 'revised agreements between Michael and AEG'. Apparently the hiring letter is a reality, but I have not seen a copy yet. How very convenient for Branca, together with the magically appearing will he had for 6 years, and oh, look who is named as co-executor of the estate as well!
    This is all spin, spin, spin and I'm glad that commenters below the article are putting the story straight.

    Happy birthday Blanket!

  4. Happy Birthday dear Blanket, we LOVE you!!! ♥

    Thank you Skiper!

    The picture of Micheal under the title is perfect! A "Grrrr" expression. :o)

    "In fact, the estate paid off the mortgage on her Encino home, called Hayvenhurst, and is currently renovating."

    I hope the Jacksons check the house for SURVEILLANCE BUGS before they return!

    So, does "Michael's" estate or Katherine now own the Encino house?

    "According to the petition, the estate has also loaned Mrs. Jackson large sums of money so that she and the children can live properly.”

    Further evidence in my mind that The Will is a fraud. Michael would have left plentiful money for Katherine and his children so they could "live properly".

    Thank you for further pointing out more media/Branca-Estate lies, Bonnie!

    (FYI - £ = British Pounds Sterling. ;o) Though, last I looked, Euros were near equal exchange to £.)

  5. I believe that the original concert contract that Michael signed was for 10 shows. Michael insisted that he only agreed to the 10 shows. Then suddenly a contract appears with AEG having the right to expand the number of shows to 31 and more. Did Michael sign this contract? I don't think so....

  6. Happy Birthday, Blanket!!!! Alot of people you may never know love you very much (including me.lol!)

    I'm so happy my commenting worked! You're right about Google, Bonnie. It can get real quirky! Love your blog! Spot on, as always! Have you heard the new info or rumour about Michael's kids defending Dr. Murray! I don't believe it but you should check it out! Gotta run! Have a class to go to!

    If it really be so ', then there are hopes that Branca remain unemployed?

    I hope that justice is done. Michael must find the smile that had in the past.

  8. Happy Birthday Blanket. We love you more.

    Bonne – Thanks for putting this post. I believe it’s important to rebut their lies and false claims whenever it’s necessary to let them know we are on top of this and not forgetting it.

    “...the estate has also loaned Mrs. Jackson large sums of money so that she and the children can live properly.” A loan to live properly? Give me a break. Does this mean she is not living “properly” and she needed extra cash? Does she has to pay this back to the estate? Who are they trying to fool, I don’t understand.

    You said, “Michael’s finances were all over the press, why not unpaid tax bills. How did THAT ever escape the press?” That’s a very good observation. You are right the media talk about his debt all the time but never his nonpayment of taxes. It’s difficult for liars to keep their story straight since deceiving is the main goal.

    When did Michael working on formulating medicine for sickness? I have never heard of him being a chemist or attempted to be one other than an artist. Where did this come from?

    Oh God forgive me, I despise and cannot stand this so called reporter named Jane Velez-Mitchell for CNN Head Line News (HLN) who always trashing Michael associating him with drug addiction. You are right she has no idea who Michael is at all, and this is another attempt to sell her book attaching Michael’s name.

  10. From R. Friedman : " According to the petition, the estate has also loaned Mrs. Jackson large sums of money so that she and the children can live properly.”

    Even if the Estate disposes "legally" of Michael's assets for the beneficiaries, the way the "mean" sentence is written is like if Mrs. K. Jackson's & MJ3 were granted alms from the executors who will later claim the money back to them. The money earned is still Michael's money, hardly earned from his name even after 6.25.2009, his talent & sweat over the years. I do hope the MJ3 will learn a good profession when the time comes & also watch out carefully what is going on around them because the Estate money makes salivate more than one these days & jealousy is indeed around too. Somehow, except for the IRS or accounting authorities, Michael's fortune should not be of public/press domain as it will attract greed on the MJ3. Whenever grown up, be it that these 3 Karate kids will also have a strong self-defense character whenever faced with vultures of any origin.

    >>>>>> Uh-yea-ah . . . CLAIMS to have been rehired, which MOST fans knowing Michael know better. I saw those comments too. But again, I don't think Branca much cares what FANS think of his involvement with Michael. This is being put out there NOW for another reason . . . Mijac, Sony/ATV and "movement" there. Keep watching.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Very good point!!! I remember the dream I had of Branca bugging a hair brush he was going to send "anonymously" as a "fan gift" I was just sitting there watching him close the back of it, talking to himself (creepy).

    I guess Michael's estate would own the house if it was in his name, unless he left the house in the will, to his mother. And you're welcome on the "keeping up" with the lies. I can't keep up with them all, but I have someone else watching this stuff for me now.

    >>>>>> Well? (my best, smart-alleck answer) if Obama continues, we will ALL be unemployed. I think as long as there is an entertainment industry and industry bankers, Branca will always have a job. He's reportedly a very nice man in person. However, friends do not get John and the establishment.

  14. Bonnie, When Michael first "died" there was actually a recorded statement by him floating around the internet. Although I cannot find the recording itself, you can google the statement he made, which was, "I'm really angry with them for booking me up to do 50 shows. I only wanted to do 10, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place. I went to bed knowing I'd sold 10 dates, and woke up to the news I was booked to do 50."

    Also, there is a story of his comments to fans as he left his Burbank rehearsal studio.
    ‘Thank you for your love and support,’ he told them. ‘I want you guys to know I love you very much.
    'I don’t know how I’m going to do 50 shows. I’m not a big eater. I need to put some weight

    Of course AEG, and particularly, Randy Phillips have always stuck with the story that Michael was fully aware and in agreement with the expanded 50 show tour.

    From a man who once said he never wanted to tour again...that it would kill him.

    I appreciate your attempts to insert DeGosson's already disproven testimony, We have moved way past this here and court will take care of this.
