The Michael Jackson Life and Death Saga continues

Being as famous as he was, it was inevitable there would be some sort o ongoing saga after the death of Michael Jackson. Who, however, would have know it would continue on and get so tumultuous. There are several aspects to this story so hold on tight, this is going to be one hell of a merry-go-round ride through Neverland Ranch.

Speaking of Neverland Ranch, Recent news indicate Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch will be open on friday for a public viewing of the dead body of Michael Jackson. This is kind of odd considering, when alive, the very recluse Michael Jackson always shied away from the camera eye. Often covering himself and the faces of his children with masks blankets, towels and anything he could find to keep the public from seeing his deteriorating state and the faces of his children. Perhaps in his insanity, Michael Jackson was trying to protect his three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., (aka Prince Michael;) Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson; and Prince Michael Jackson II (aka Blanket.)

Looking at his actions, one might think Michael Jackson was being modest and protective of his children. Then there is the names. A modest man does not include his first name in the names of all his children, even his "daughter", Paris, has Michael (not Michelle) as her middle name. Ya, ok we all know Michael Jackson was a few bricks short of a load. But who can blame him being raised in such a twisted environment.

That brings us to the next topic, Joseph Jackson (Joe Jackson, not the honkey singer.) In interviews and the 1988 Michael Jackson autobiography, Michael Jackson often spoke of the very negative aspects of growing up as part of the Jackson 5, referring to his father Joe Jackson as a "Mystery Man".

Growing up in Gary Indiana was not easy for the Jackson family. Michael's earliest vivid memory of his father was when Joe Jackson came home fro work at the steel mill with a Big bag of doughnuts. This was one of the few positive memories, aside from that there were constant beatings with either a belt or a switch and often his fathers hand. Michael Jackson and his siblings were forced to practice day and night. This left very little room for life as a child.

When one looks back at this abusive childhood, clarity of Michael Jackson's "adult" life come clear. Is it any wonder Michael Jackson strived so much for the life of a child? Is this, perhaps, the reason Michael Jackson tried so hard to shelter his children from the limelight which robbed him of his childhood?

Taking all that into consideration, one has to wonder over the courts' decision to grant temporary custody of Michael Jackson's three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., (Prince Michael,) 12; Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael Jackson II (Blanket,) to the abusive father who was at least partly responsible for the freakish outcome of Michael Jackson.

This brings us to the next part of the story, the Custody of Michael Jackson's three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., (Prince Michael,) 12; Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael Jackson II (Blanket.) On one side is Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's 79-year-old mother, who has been a constant in Michael Jackson's often turbulent career and personal life. On the other is Debbie Rowe, Michael Jackson's second wife (After Lisa Marie Presley,) who has maintained her distance from the family since divorcing Michael Jackson in 1999. Although full custody of Michael Jackson's three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., (Prince Michael,) 12; Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael Jackson II(Blanket) was given to Michael Jackson, Ex wife, Debbie Rowe maintained parental rights over the two older children.

Whatever the case, Michael Jackson's Last will and testament will be revealed which is expected to be filed in court this week. Although Michael Jackson's Will will most likely indicate his wishes for the care of his children, those wishes would not necessarily be legally binding and only "a factor" in the custody of Michael Jackson's three children, according California attorney Gloria Allred.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ruled that, at least for now, Katherine Jackson would get custody of Michael Jackson's three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, 12; Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 11; and Prince Michael Jackson II, 7. This is a ruling which Debbie Rowe and any other interesting parties could easily challenge in the future.

Michael Jackson's 7-year-old will was filed Wednesday in a Los Angeles court, giving his entire estate to a family trust and cutting out Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe. Michael Jackson's will, dated July 7, 2002, estimated his estate at that time at more than $500 million.

In his Will, Michael Jackson names his mother, Katherine Jackson, as the beneficiary of the trust and the guardian of Michael Jackson's three children. Further down in Michael Jackson's Will, Michael Jackson named life-long friend and entertainer Diana Ross as a successor guardian for the Jackson Three and their estates.

The current value of Michael Jackson's estate is unknown, however, one of Michael Jackson's most lucrative assets is his stake in the Sony-ATV Music Publishing Catalog, which includes music by various artists including the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Lady Gaga and the Jonas Brothers. This holding alone is estimated to be worth as much as $2 billion.

At this time, neither Debbie Rowe nor her attorneys have indicated whether she intends to seek custody of the two oldest children or appeal the contents of Michael Jackson's Will.

This brings us to the "other interested parties." There has often been speculation that Michael Jackson's three children are not in fact his biological children. There are rumours indicating Michael Jackson was not involved in any way in the conception of THE JACKSON THREE. In fact, there is an apparent sperm donor involved and Michael Jackson's ex wife, Debbie Rowe, refuses to reveal the identity of the true father of Michael Jackson's children (THE JACKSON THREE.) At this point, there is no indication of a "Biological Father of Michael Jackson's children" (THE JACKSON THREE) has stepped forward and layed claim to the Michael Jackson children and the Michael Jackson fortune that comes with them.

If Debbie Rowe,is in fact given custody to the older 2 Michael Jackson children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, 12; Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 11, one has to wonder what will happen to 7 year-old Prince Michael Jackson II (aka Blanket.) Will the Jackson Three be split up? Will the courts grant Debbie Rowe custody of the third child? Will all the children remain in the household of father Joe Jackson, the place which Michael avoided when he moved into the Neverland Ranch? What about those other "Interested parties"? Perhaps Michael Jackson's siblings will step up to the plate and take over for Michael Jackson in the caring for the Michael Jackson Children (The Jackson Three.) Maybe even the mysterious sperm donor and "Real father" of Michael Jackson's Children will come out of hiding, realising the value in the custody of the Jackson Three and the fortune and fame that will inevitably follow the Michael Jackson children for much of their life.

Of course, there is still the Michael Jackson autopsy to go though. There has been plenty of speculation on a leaked Michael Jackson Autopsy which details of can be found here. Now Michael Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, is talking about a second autopsy of Michael Jackson.

As for cause of death, there is of course the many shots of Demerol Michael Jackson subjected his body to, on a daily basis. Recent reports indicate Michael Jackson may have also been taking sleeping pills and in fact was begging for some more, on the night of his death. Whether these rumoured sleeping pills were in addition to the daily shots of Demerol or accompanied by a wine (aka Jesus Juice) chaser is unknown.

All rumours and mysteries aside, Michael Jackson is in fact dead. Fans of the late pop star, the world over, are mourning in disbelief over the death of Michael Jackson. Perhaps, many of these fans are on their way to a vigil outside the Late Michael Jackson's home (The Neverland Ranch) in preparation for the Friday viewing of Michael Jackson's dead body. Those fans who can't make it to the public viewing of Michael Jackson's body and the morbid alike are now scouring the Internet for PICTURES OF MICHAEL JACKSON's AUTOPSY or MICHAEL JACKSON AUTOPSY PHOTO's.

After the PUBLIC VIEWING OF MICHAEL JACKSON's BODY AT NEVERLAND RANCH on Friday, it is rumoured that Michael Jackson's body will be moved back to Gary Indiana for burial where a private memorial service is scheduled for Sunday. The location of Michael Jackson's final resting place and funeral is unknown, or being kept secret, at this time. Wherever the final resting place of Michael Jackson ends up being, it is sure to become a pilgrimage for Michael Jackson fans for years to come.
