Strange details of Michael Jackson’s death come to light

The Hollywood Reporter has amassed the strangest things that have come to light so far in Michael Jackson’s family’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live.

In his last days, Jackson claimed that God was speaking directly to him. He also was so emaciated that people could see his heart beating out of his chest. Furthermore, the defense offers that since the CEO of AEG Live was the promoter for the final Elvis Presley tour, the dude should really know how to recognize a lost, drug-addicted superstar when he sees one.

Finally, emails have surfaced among the AEG Live executives where they disparage the King of Pop. When one lawyer for the company was headed to Jackson’s house, another said, “Does this mean you get to meet the freak?”

The more that comes to light, the sadder this whole thing is.



  • “At heart, I’m a physicist,” Will Smith told New York magazine. “I look at everything in my life as trying to find the single equation, the theory of everything.”
