Michael Jackson Justice: An Old Interview with Michael's Bodyguards

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".

An Old Interview with Michael's Bodyguards

Whatever Happened to the Book?


Psalm 10:8
He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.


I thought if anyone has not yet seen this I would post it here.  This is a Q&A from the MJ bodyguards (the ones that worked with him up until 2008, between 2006 and 2008.  Some of you may not have seen this.

These bodyguards are the ones that did an interview about a year after Michael passed.  They  had planned on writing a book but never completed it.  Ironically someone published a book with a very similar title, so they may have decided not to do it.

The interviewer is “Q” and of course the three different bodyguards are  “-“ .  You don’t know which is answering but you know it’s one or two of them. 

I took note of the fact that they said that Michael read his Bible daily  (I just love him!) and  that he did COOK meals and the odd way they answered about who Michael’s friends were.

- Start -

Q: If you were the only people working for Michael at that time, who did the cooking? I think it was Teddy Riley or Akon who said that Michael would cook for his children when they recorded songs in London.

- MJ did prepare meals for his kids.

Q: So he cooked, or opened a TV dinner?

- lol... [he] cooked.

Q: When you worked for him, did he have a large entourage working for him? Or was it just you guys (security), the nanny, and his cook?

- Just 3 security, nanny wasn't around much, He prepared food for his kids... Different things, we'll get into that in the book. FYI, there was a cook on occasion, but MJ prepared his kids food at least 3-4 times a week.

- We called MJ "SIR," and he would say, "You guys don’t have to call me SIR." We would then say, "Ok, SIR." He started laughing.

Q: Bill, will you talk about Michael's disguises and where he would go in the book?

- Yes.

[A fan replies that even in disguise, Michael's trademark loafers and white socks would always give him away.]

- You are so right about those loafers and white socks -- I told him that many times, but he didn't believe me. I also said, "Sir, people know your walk." It's a big give away.

Q: May we know what [cologne] MJ [wore]?

- Yves Saint Laurent, Cartier, Armani...just to name a few. Black Orchid as well.

Q: What was Michael's favorite flower?

- Honestly, I don't know if he had a favorite flower, however I did buy white and red roses a few times at his request for the house.

Q: I remember reading in a book that Michael requested Subway sandwiches at times some years ago. Was that the truth or is that incorrect?

- I took him to Subway a few times, he loved it.

Q: Bill, it was known in the past that Michael loved to talk on the phone! Did he still talk on the phone for hours and hours?

- $3,000 monthly cell phone bill, What do you think?

Q: Did MJ have a Twitter account?

- No Twitter, he had a Facebook, though. [According to someone else that Bill replied to, the account's been removed by now.]

Q: I know that Michael knew how to drive, but I am curious to know if Michael would drive while you were working for him?

- The only car MJ drove (on my watch) was the bumper cars at the amusement park.

Q: Did Michael read show-biz magazines and newspaper, not tabloids?

- [He read] Rob Report, Wall Street, Mens fashion

Q: Did he ever pull pranks on anyone?

- Yes, he did pull pranks and we will mention it in the book.

- Oh yes, we will have many stories about MJ's sense of humor. He laughed a lot and joked around. He once gave security some food, but before he did, he put extremely, extremely HOT PEPPERS on the food, and watched security run around looking for water.

Q: Was Michael very vocal about his feelings, like sharing his past memories? You don't have to expose much, but was he ever reminiscent?

- He didn't talk much about his childhood, we always wondered why.

Q: I hope that this question doesn't sound too weird or too sad, but Mr. Whitfield, did you ever see Michael cry? And if you did, why did he?

- Yes, when something was printed about him that was false, he was hurt.

- He was sad a lot. Now I said he was sad a lot, but there were many times he laughed until it hurt. He laughed so loud while watching a movie and people were saying, "Dude, shut up!" They didn't know it was MJ.

Q: Hey Bill, I was wondering if you guys knew Dr. Murray? Would you mind share with us about what you recollect (if at all)?

- Yes, we know Dr. Murray, however we can't speak on that matter at this time. But I will speak on it soon.

Q: I wanna make a list of celebrities that actually stood by him during the dark times: Donald Trump, Chris Tucker, Liz Taylor, Whoopi Goldberg, Rick James, Stephanie Mills, Dick Gregory, Brett Ratner...

- You named someone that MJ really hated. I'm not gonna say who at this time.

Q: Really? I know they all defended him, though...

- So you may think!

- He and Whoopi were cool. [MJ and Donald Trump] were cool, too...that's all I'm saying on this matter.


TV / MOVIES

Q: Did MJ watch much TV? What were his favorite programs?

- He didn't do much TV, if at all.

Q: Bill, do you know which are some favorite movies of Michael's? Do you know if he liked to see romantic movies?

- He loved action movies, Spider Man, Transformers. He liked special effects.

Q: Did Michael and his children like the Lord of the Rings trilogy?

- Oh yes, he had the DVD collection.

Q: Bill, did Michael participate in any recreational sports; such as, swimming, bowling, snow skiing, etc?. Did he like to attend any sporting events under your watch?

- I've seen him watch golf.

Q: He watched golf? Did you guys ever just kick back, drink some beers and watch the Superbowl, NBA Championship, World Series or Stanley Cup?

- He pretty much had every movie ever made (LOL) while we were away in Virginia, somewhere deep, deep, deep in the woods we sometimes kicked back and watched a few movies together....he had the loudest laugh...good times.

Q: I wonder if Michael used to go outdoors, if he spent some time in forests, by the rivers...some trips into real nature?

- All the time while in Virginia. Sept 08-Nov 08.


MUSIC


I Just Love This House


Q: I was wondering, did you ever see or hear Michael working on his music or dancing? Either at home or in the studio? Did he work on his music a lot?

- Yes, we built his studio and dance floor in his house. We heard him practice all the time. It was amazing to listen to him, many times at 3 AM.

- We made the dance studio Sound Proof.

Q: Hey Bill, did MJ ever mention if he liked any song in particular, I mean one of his, 'cause  I know his fav. song is Smile [by Charlie Chaplin].

- He listened to Classical music a lot, he talked about life in general, things he wanted to do, healing the world through his music.

Q: Did Michael want to bring out a new album? Did you listen to songs that were not released... new stuff?

- He was always working on stuff. Yes, we've heard a lot of unreleased music.


PETS

Q: Did Michael have any pets while you were working with him, and what were their names? Your interview [with Good Morning America] talked about [Paris's] cat named Katie.

- Chocolate Lab, [named] Kenya.

Q: Bill, I've read before that Michael was afraid of dogs. Is there any truth to that?

- He had no problem with dogs as we knew. The dog was an XMAS gift to Prince.


(A note from Paris to Bill Whitfield about her cat, Katie)


RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

Q: I have read that Michael read his Bible a lot in the Thriller era, and I was wondering if you ever saw him reading the Bible or pray?

- He read the Bible daily.

Q: Could you share what MJ's religious beliefs were? Was he a Christian?

- No comment on that. Oh, believe me, I know where he stood religiously... I'm just not getting into that.


LOVE LIFE

Q: Can you tell us honestly, is it true that MJ was lonely and unhappy and he was looking for a love?

- I can't say he was looking for love, he just wanted peace and to live a normal life.

Q: Random question... are you gonna talk about romantic interests [in the book]? Just curious who he was cheating on me with, lol jk

- He was not cheating on anyone..lol... we never said [he was] dating two ladies, we said he had two friends that he knew. People took that as something else....

[For reference: in the bodyguards' Good Morning America interview, they mentioned that Michael saw two women during the time they worked for him, and that when security would drive MJ and one of the women around, they'd sometimes hear them kissing in the back-seat of the limo . . . either that or "chewing gum loudly," lol.]

Q: Did you see MJ flirting with girls a lot? Was he a natural flirt or just avoided the whole thing because of his shyness?

- I was not going to answer this, but I'll give you guys a little. Yes, MJ was very charming, he did flirt from time to time. Sometimes he would ask me to get someone's number or ask do I think someone is cute? It was so funny to watch the dude flirt. I tell women I meet that I have a dog, I would hear MJ tell women he has a Zoo! How do you top someone that has a Zoo?


LIFE AS MJ'S BODYGUARDS



Q: Was it easy to work with Michael?

- Yes, but his managers made it hard sometimes.

Q: Were there any down sides to the job at all?

- Not being paid for 4 Months!

- Not once did we ever think about leaving MJ and his kids, though -- we knew it wasn't his fault. I can't get into whose fault it was right now.

Q: I have been curious as to how you three handled coverage for Michael. You all had to have days off -- did you rotate, do shift changes? Two on, one off? How did that schedule work?

- DAYS OFF? We were the only three that knew where MJ was, we were the only three MJ trusted, there was no days off.

Q: Hey, Bill, how did you ever socialize or date, if you were with MJ 24/7? Did you go on double dates?

- Honestly, me and my team put our personal lives on hold. We enjoyed seeing MJ lead a normal life at times. There was nothing better then to see him and his kids laughing, joking and lighing fireworks. He loved his fireworks! Oops, thats too much info.

Q: Why is that too much info? What kinda fireworks you referring to? LOL

- The 4th of July kind! He was setting them off weeks before and weeks after the 4th of July.

Q: Before you worked for Michael, were you a fan? Did you ever attend any of his concerts?

- I was a fan since the Jackson 5 signed with MOTOWN RECORDS! Honestly, that's the one thing I regret, I've never seen him in concert. I told him that and he promised me I'm gonna love the show in London. It's ok, because I was blessed with watching and hearing him rehearse at home. Nothing can ever compare to that!

Q: Bill, when was the last time you saw and/or spoke to Michael?

- 2 weeks before [his death].


THE FANS

Q: Can you tell us one of your craziest MJ's fan moments ever?

- Ok, I normally wouldn't do this: once, a fan sneaked into MJ's house and stayed in a guest bathroom for 4 days. They were caught by MJ when they were getting food out of the refrigerator in the middle of the night.

Q: What did Michael say?

- They sat down and had something to eat and then security took her home.

- MJ told me this, [she sneaked into] Neverland while MJ was away. The fan was in the house while everyone was away. She couldn't get through the house, 'cause of the security system, [so] she stayed in a closet in the kitchen area.

Q: Did he talk to you about us, his fans? Did he know how much we love him?

- Yes, he spoke of his fans many times in very good ways, however he was (as well as security) very cautious about which fans meant well. Remember, a fan killed John Lennon.

Q: To your knowledge, did MJ ever go to fan forums and read or post under an assumed name? (I'm not asking for the names, just curious if he did this.)

- Ok, yes, he did read a lot of fan posts, [but] not until it was viewed by security. He was not good with reading negative info, that made him completely shut down.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Q: When does the book come out? Is there a certain due date?

- We are trying for August 29 [Michael's birthday]. We are trying for August, but we are waiting to see what Mr. Halperin's documentary is about.

Q: What will the income of the book go to?

- We have a list of 10 different charities that MJ supported. We also want to build a memorial display of him in Vegas because he loved Vegas.... Yes, the charities will be listed, as for being discreet, there is no other way to be in honor of my former boss, he deserves nothing less.

Q: Will the Jackson Estate and the family be able to see the book first?

- We will seek Mrs. Jackson's blessing when the book is finished.

END

I also wanted to share this since someone shared it to my wall.  It is a video of Michael Jackson in Buenes Aires singing "I Just Can't Stop Loving You".

The story with the post, was that Siedah Garret donned a blonde wig and presumably Michael knew nothing about it until she appeared behind him to start her part of the song.  It's Michael's reaction that I enjoyed so I thought you would too:


Also another rare - Michael back stage with Liz Taylor.  I couldn't hear what she or he was saying because my husband was asleep in the chair so I had to keep it down.  I did notice that Michael had to keep holding his glasses on, and his knuckles on his hands look bruised.


See you on Monday - God Bless you.  Keep praying that Michael and family are safe (whever he is).  Because God hears our prayers.

  1. Very nice Blog, thank you Bonnie♥

    Unless I am wrong, I always thought Bill Whitfield, Mike Garcia & Javon Beard were good guys & they must have liked Michael & his kids very much to accept not seeing any salary during 4 months ! Michael's manager at the time : Raymone Bain, grrr ?

    On the Video Michael & Liz above, I saw Mike La Perruque, Michael former Security Chief from 2000 to 2005,I think. Hiw own version of Michael as a man & a father :

  2. Hi Line,

    Some of these interviews given are gems that have pieces of information in them that connect with info already gathered from other people/sources. As far as the generosity of the bodyguards, I ask you . . . would YOU work for Michael for 4 months without salary if you knew it wasn't his fault? I would. Think of what they must have witnessed and what they knew. I also like how they talked about building a soundproof recording studio in his house . . . which house was this? The one in Vegas? He was RENTING that wasn't he? Do homeowners just let you alter their houses?

    Raymone Bain - Exactly when she started as manager from personal assistant I don't know. The reported times vary. But I don't think she had much control over what his accountants may have been doing and this has always been a problem for Michael. His accountants, managers, LAWYERS etc . . . weren't working for HIM. They were only getting paid out of his accounts. They worked for SONY and anyone else Sony hired that Michael didn't know about. People just showed up in his life, friends of people who were NOT friends to Michael . . . so called "experts" at nothing.

    The government can create a whole identity complete with identity records, medicals, places of residence and previous employers. Just look at all the fake fans and fan clubs on the internet. Prime example. All they are, are AGENTS in the virtual community. So the people in Michael's life . . . they may have been actors/artists/producers/writers/chefs/managers provided by one company or one label or another . . . but their REAL JOBS were behind their SHADOW JOBS. You have no idea how many american workers could be working with or beside a CIA agent and never know about it.

    Interesting to note is that he said Michael had no girlfriends. On the interview above the bodyguards also said that THEY DID NOT SAY Michael had a girlfriend, the only said Michael had a couple of girls that were friends and people took that to mean something else (note the additional editing in there where the questioner felt they had to cover their butts). That doesn't mean Michael never kissed anyone, it just means that there was no secret girlfriend TO THEIR KNOWLEDGE. (This is really not important other than to point out the injections made by people who DID NOT KNOW the situation).

    I also believe Bill, Mike and Javon were good guys. They were post trial bodyguards and not "installed". However the people that showed up when Mike came back to L.A. and Sony got involved? Wow . . . Alvarez comes to mind and the other bodyguard, both came from a security firm that is no longer in business . . .

    Can you say CIA front?

    1. BONNIE, below a CNN transcript of 08/23/2011 - Mike La Perruque interviewed by Dr. Drew. You need to scroll down long before you reach the speficic Mike La Perruque's transcript :

      http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1108/23/ddhln.01.html

      Among others, Mike La Perruque says Alvarez is a good guy who now works for him (!). Since 2008, M. La Perruque works as Security for James Perse Ent. Inc. LA (fashion). Alberto Alvarez was unemployed after 06.25.2009 when Mrs. Jackson fired him & worked thereafter for a showbiz celeb girl for a while. On my side, I would have had more suspicions on the bodyguard Muhammad during the Murray trial but by reading the above transcript, we can really let our imagination run, i.e. either Mike La Perruque is actually a good professional & good guy who also talked only good about Michael in the past (trial 2005) OR he & Alvarez were "agents". Everything is possible but always thinking for the worse is unsettling ... reality is often that way. I am anxious to read whenever you have time what YOU think of this.

    2. I would forever work for Michael without salary, as
      long as he'd provide free food and a roof LOL.
      No, really. It would be a dream job in so many ways.To be able
      to protect him and help him with things, to be able to see him
      daily and know how he is doing, to be sure everything is fine.

      For me bodyguards interviews are always... they make me cry.
      They often show us real Mike, especially I remember
      the weeping huge black guy, saying at the end something like
      he wants the world to know Michael was an angel.
      Think I cried for solid 40 minutes after that one (embarrassing)
      Ugh, wish I could remember guy's name now, former bodyguard.
      It was on youtube I guess.

      Alvarez... The sweaty freaked out bad liar. He is no good at
      telling lies, really, and if only we had a chance to learn about WHO
      and WHY told him to lie under oath. Why bother with framing
      Murray so HARD if there was nothing to hide? I was worried
      if Alvarez gonna faint right there, he was that nervous.
      All 3 "final" bodyguards, especially Alvarez, know a lot,
      but they won't tell. All that uncertainty provoked questions
      and started what it started.
      Along with fake fans whom I believed wholeheartedly in 2009!
      It took me a year to figure out they are not what they seem.
      I'm so tired of lies and fakes.

      Love the vid with Siedah Garret :) He wanted to laugh
      badly, but had to finish the show properly!
      On video with Liz he looks so shy and uncomfortable
      with strange people around, covering his face, poor babe.
      You know, it's good I never was his bodyguard LOL, I would
      be waaaaay overprotective and gonna be fired after couple
      weeks of asking everyone but close friends to back off!
      And I would be really nasty with paparazzi :P

      I can see how CIA gets into the picture, no need
      to be a conspiracy geek to think that. Too many
      questions left, too many strange things in his life.
      And since CIA is behind so many evil events and murders,
      they fit right in. I hate the idea [as if not
      enough crooks in his life already], but could be.

    3. Line,

      I was reading the La Perrugue interview. I am looking at the time lines and the fact that La Perrugue referred to John Branca as "Michael's friend" and that was it. The fact that Alvarez now works for him even further solidifies my distrust of him. Alvarez by the way, was also working for Brittney Spears. I have pictures of him with her. I guess he's been a good little Illuminati puppet.

    4. Hi Anonymous,

      Me too (working for Michael). I'm not picky about the roof over my head and as long as I have something to eat when I'm hungry, I'm good (I can make a cardboard box feel like home, LOL! But hope I never have to). He's pretty much changed everything that is important to me and I was never interested in material things anyway. I just wanted people to be happy.

      Ugh, I know! His "angel-ness" is written all over his eyes. My soul misses him here. How do you miss the presence of someone you never felt before? Whatever gears he reset inside me, I don't know. Never knew pain or love like this before. It's not the same as love for a husband/wife or child/parent. It's a goodness that got up and left just as it is written. Geeze, I'm depressing myself . . . moving on -

      ROFLMBO!!!! And then she comes back with the "sweaty, freaked-out bad liar" comment. Alvarez is a pretty big guy. I was surprised at how big he is. You mention Alvarez's nervousness and I tell you it was the same for Nurse Cherilyn. When I dug into her connections, my word! I was so angry when she started talking I.V's of vitamin B. I was like "are you KIDDING ME?!!! Doesn't he have enough holes in him!!!" I was furious! Does poor Michael have one flipping vein in his body that hasn't been pierced? These people are MONSTERS!

      Don't feel bad, I believed the fake fans too. Heck I was all set to do Karen Faye's bidding and set up fake profiles to entrap people. Something stopped me and said "why are we doing this if this is about truth?" Shortly thereafter was the Ganesha Om business and the exclusionary tactics with DeGosson and her harem all playing "king of the club" and I bowed out of both pages. What was interesting was that I announced it on my own facebook page and on the blog to see what kind of reaction I would get. Oh man! Read the 2010 blogs. Can't believe these people are human sometimes.

      Yes the video with Siedah Garret was precious. If I were her, I would have busted up laughing. I don't know how she held it together. Michael even laughed through part of his lyrics. I like to think Michael is like my own brother - the practical joker in our family. He can run with a story for weeks before he "gets" you. He did that from the time he was a kid. I took notice that Michael was trying to keep his eyes covered. His hands were constantly on his glasses, and his knuckles on his hands looked bruised. Could have been just shadow.

      Most of Michael's "friends" installed in his life had "front" careers. They were like vermin crawling all over him. I will get more into that on the blog I'm getting ready to put up. I know people that work for the CIA and I know one that flies to different parts of the world and is just set up in different careers. She just has different identities. We worked for her brother once and their whole family was practically CIA.

  3. Hi Bonnie. One bodyguard said in the interview above that MJ one time laughed like crazy at the movies and somebody told him to shut up. It made me think of "Living with Michael Jackson". One clip in the documentary showed when MJ and his kids went to the zoo to watch the gorillas. It's packed with people in there but you only hear one person laughing like crazy at the gorillas. And of course that is MJ. I also love to laugh. I think it's a good thing that MJ and I never met and became friends. Because I think that both of us would have died from laughter being friends.

    1. Hi Susanne,

      I remember that part about the zoo. Then they made it sound like Michael took his children out in the crowd ignoring their safety, for his own ego trip when Bashir is the one that tipped the press off that Michael was going to be there. And as far as the laughing goes, I think I would occasionally have to cover my ears and say "Dude, shut up! LOL! Nahhhhh. But I'm a quiet laugher. He would completely drown me out.

      Delete
    2. Hi Bonnie. Yeah, Mr Bashir. What can we say about him? A back stabber. He have to live with what he did to MJ. And that often becomes a punishment if the person has a conscience. And like infinity, what goes around comes around. The boomerang effect. It will come back and hit him in the head. Maybe MJ's demo "In the back" is about Bashir and Chandler and Sony and…………on and on and on.

  4. Hi! This link I'm posting is a video by John Paul Jackson. He is a prophet and can interrupt dreams and visions. Pretty much everything he said in the video, among other videos, is the same thing John Todd said. This video was recorded in March 2009: http://youtube.com/watch?v=rri6cEKHkHO&feature=youtube_gdata_player

  5. Hey Bonnie!

    I was surprised to see this on your blog. I saw this interview a couple of years ago and I have to admit I was looking forward to reading the bodyguards' book but for some reason the book was never published. I read that they had problems finding publishers which is not surprising since they are writing about Mike in a positive light. All they want is trash and the bodyguard weren't about to give them that. They wanted everyone to see the human side of Michael besides what the tabloids tell the fans.

    From the looks of it, I guess we won't be seeing the book at all.

    1. Hey Miss P!

      This interview isn't that old. I think it was given in mid 2011 or later. Not sure but everyone was waiting for their book to come out. I had mixed feelings about that and them at first. But I thought it very odd that their book kind of falls into oblivion and some fan named Karen Moriaty comes out with a book with almost the same exact title. Somebody stole somebody's idea I guess!

    2. Hey MIss P! I just checked the date on that interview and I was wrong . . . it was in June of 2010 so it WAS almost two years ago . . . sorry! :o)

  7. Hi Bonnie. Every time you hit the publish button "prove your not a robot" comes up. It's funny, and a bit annoying too, because everytime I read "prove your not a robot" the song "Kraftwerk - We Are The Robots", start to play in my head.

  8. Terrible off-topic. Please do not post
    if it's that terrible.
    I just have to tell someone LOL.
    It's pointless, but just had a weird (weeeell, not really,
    but still) incident - had Michael playlist paused (I paused
    it for sure as I read final part of some article in silence)
    and went to check washing machine (which BTW went wonky :( and
    started to leak!) and after I was done struggling with it,
    came back to the cool noise of Mike singing loudly "I'm bad I'm bad I'm
    really really bad!" and the rest of the song (I stayed and listened to the
    end as it was weird).
    You see, on my device after "pause" set for too long it simply
    goed to "stop" mode, not to "play". I just checked with another track!
    So I thought "Yeah, what a prankster :P he loves his water pranks!"
    It did it second time on same track after I grabbed some towels here
    and escaped to save our bathroom from possible flooding,
    once back he was going again "You Know I'm Bad, I'm Bad..". Song
    played second time.
    It's just a weird technology bug, I know, I get plenty. But
    thought it was kinda neat and just had to tell someone who won't
    call me crazy for that. Sorry.

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      The first year after Michael's passing I had weird stuff happen at the old house I lived. Our office was in the basement room down there and we had a radio. The first night this happened, it freaked me out, but the radio came on and the CD changer was moving, but there was no CD in it. I could hear it going "click" . . . "click" . . . . "click". Funny thing was, the radio was broken. I reached up and checked the CD player . . . no CD in it. I turned it off and prayed, LOL!

      About a week and a half later, I had been crying over some video I was watching about Michael. I had put my head down in my hands and cried. For some reason I FELT that I should turn around and I did, looking up at the top of the bookshelf and there was that red dot telling me the radio was on. No sound, just on. My husband was in bed. I looked around the room and finally I said, "Stop it." Then turned it off. (I was laughing) I even typed on Karen Faye's facebook page about it (when that was still up).

      Three or four nights later, I was upset about something else to do with Michael. I was getting ready to cry but hadn't yet shed a tear and I hear "click" . . . . "Click" . . . . "click". I turn and look and the radio is on and the CD changer is changing CD's with no CD in it!

      The next morning I put a CD in the doggone thing and IT WOULDN'T PLAY!!! (Because it's BROKEN!) So I told Michael to quit freaking me out. It wasn't scaring me though. It was making me laugh instead. Funny thing about that is, I don't believe he is gone meaning dead. But I have a couple of feathers taped to my computer monitor that appeared at different times when I was upset. So your story is not so weird :o) Maybe God just wanted me to know a little bit about him and his playful character.

  9. The bodyguards' interview was eye opening at the time I first saw it, I didn't pay much attention to the part about the $3,000 monthly cell phone bill as it was widely known Michael called lots of people, and we all have seen videos of him on the phone, but I have read in the past years Jermaine talking about Michael not owning a cell phone as a reason Jermaine or other family members couldn't reach him. I think these men are honest and their interview calls into question the veracity of Jermaine's claims.

    1. Why would you think Jermaine was lying because of a statement the bodyguards made about Michael during a very short two year period they worked with Michael? They weren't with him in the 1990's and most of the 2,000's. They were with him after he came back to the states and through most of 2008. Two years.

      Try re-reading the interview: The bodyguards were asked if Michael talked on the phone NOT if he OWNED one. They said "$3,000 a month phone bill, what do you think?"

      They don't say it was MICHAEL'S phone. If Michael didn't pay THEM what makes you think he paid his own cell phone bill? He used OTHER PEOPLE'S PHONES.

      Instead of attacking Michael's family as SOME fan groups seem to be taught to do, why don't you try to "reach for the truth" and put these COMPARTMENTALIZED periods of Michael's life and start stitching together the pieces of information for the clues that are being given out.

      I think BOTH were honest. Michael's body guards AND Jermaine.

    2. You will also notice that Bill clarifies that Michael was not at fault for them not being paid. Seems they knew something else was afoot. However, something DIFFERENT was going on during that time. Branca was no longer the lawyer but he still worked for Sony where Michael's money came from.

      Take a look at what Sony is doing and has been doing to the Chambers Brothers - http://www.youtube.com/embed/ZCtp6vVm_Z0
