Jackson Family Ties
In a rare decision by TIME, they are putting out a rushed mid-week special edition hitting stands Monday. It will showcase the life and legacy of Michael Jackson and will pay special tribute. The last time a mid week edition was done was after 9/11. Michael Jackson's 3 children have reportedly made it known that they want to live with their grandparents--particularly Katherine Jackson. The Jackson family is adamant about keeping the children in their family as the children have no relationship with mother Debbie Rowe. But since Debbie is indeed their natural mother, a custody battle is possible. Michael's body has been legally returned to the family's possession and they are spending today planning his funeral arrangements. Reportedly they are having a second autopsy conducted now as well.
Michael's doctor Dr. Conrad Murray (above) from Vegas is being questioned by authorities as to what happened in Michael's final moments as Dr. Murray was the only witness present. The 50-date London concert promoters AEG reportedly put Murray on the payroll to be with Michael throughout the tour. Murray had been treating Michael for the last 3 years and Michael told the promoters that "he trusted this man."
Tyler Perry spoke on the radio yesterday morning about halting production on "Why Did I Get Married? 2" once they learned of Michael's death. Janet hurriedly left the Atlanta set to travel to L.A. to be with her family. Heartbreaking.
