In the spirit of honesty?

I haaaate the "Living with Michael Jackson" interview.

All of it. Like, every last drop.

Actually I hate most MJ interviews. They always went shitty if you think about it. Between the interviewer asking dumb or weird shit, and Michael giving dumb or weird answers and acting funny...it's just always a disaster.

Probably the best shit that came out wasn't an interview, but like the home movie footage that Michael narrated in that special.

Co-Sign

Didn't care for Oprah interview very much. 97 interview with Barb - Michael seemed way too manic like he took too many uppers or was just A LITTLE too jazzed about his son. LWMJ was a nightmare as was the Ed Bradley interview post arrest. (Interesting and sad info about that one - it was taped Christmas day. What a sad Christmas morning that would have been for both of them. For MJ, having to spend Christmas living that nightmare and for Ed, for having to spend his Christmas interviewing someone going through the worst period in their life, to date.)

The only exceptions to the interviews being shitty were...95 Prime Time and the Private Home Movies (which wasn't an interview as much as it was a special that was edited.)

[Edited 4/25/12 21:46pm]

I didn't even watch the Oprah interview until years later - the night it aired I went to bed instead because I was like a kid and I was scared he was gonna say he had a girlfriend or something and my little teen heart couldn't have taken that at the time. falloff

But it really did suck, it sucked ass - not as badly as most of the interviews that came in later years, but it was just really awkward, there was something really stiff about it.

The PrimeTime Live interview is almost as cringeworthy to me as LWMJ was. Michael was overdoing it and hamming it up too much and I was kinda cringing through the whole thing. And Lisa Marie looked annoyed by how he was acting and by the whole interview in general and I don't blame her lol

Thanks Happyperson for posting these. I've come across them on youtube and never actually bothered watching them. They're really good.

I think the reason why some MJ interviews come off as awkward is that journalist ask him the stupidest, most intrusive questions that they would never ask anyone else. Mike has to answer them knowing the whole world is watching AND judging. That would make anyone uncomfortable and when you are uncomfortable, you act a bit animated and weird.

I love his interviews. The more intelligent they are, the more relaxed Mike is, so naturally when the interview is just about music, Mike acts naturally, but when they start asking him if he molests kids, really has sex with his wives and other bs, no wonder he's all freaking out.

But I really like the OUTTAKES from the Bashit interviews where they talked about normal things. The documentary itself was painful to watch, cause it was full of idiotic questions. "You really prefer climbging trees to having sex?" rolleyes

I definitly agree with this. Thats why I dont know why people reacted so surprised at Michaels responces to those questions. Like seriously, how would you react if someone asked you if you have sex with your WIFE or if you have ever molested any children? eek

Michael was a global star but alot of the questions that was asked of him were very disrespectful and inappropiate.

Stand, you`ve been sitting much too long, there`s a permanent crease in your right or wrong.~Sly Stone

The Bashir interview ruined everything for him tbh. I remember the mixed reactions, a lot of people said he's sick, and others who were non-fans felt sorry for him and could see that he was set up and letting Bashir talk to him like that and not getting why. It was such a depressing time to be a fan, seeing him go through that though I was also really mad at him for not focusing on music and on trying too hard to be liked when there was no need to go out of the way and go the reality show route. I understand he had issues with Sony too, but it was all really a big mess. The middle of 2003 got calm for a bit but then we all know what happened, ugh. And honestly? After that, I was so sad everyday praying he would be okay and for a not guilty verdict, I got too emotionally involved in that mess to get away from my own.

I don't think I want to watch those videos, what happens in them?

Students Are Now Learning The Truth About MJ in College -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Message From David (one of the Admin. from the Vindicate MJ Website) Today I met with a professor who is teaching her college students about MJ! Her name is Martha Gallien, and she teaches criminology and sociology here in Texas. We met for around 2 hours and talked about MJ, what she thought about him before and after his death, what her students think about her, and other topics. She is making her students read “MJ Conspiracy” & they must write a book report on it! In another class, her students are given extra credit assignments that they can do on MJ if they choose. She always liked his music, but was too busy with working and raising her family to follow his life closely while he was alive. After he died, she became very curious about him, and was disgusted at what she discovered! In Sept. 2010, she flew to Cali to attend the Frozen In Time seminar, where Mesereau, Zonen, Feldman, & others spoke about the MJ cases. She met with William Wagener afterwards and taped an interview for YT where she describes what she heard there. http://www.youtube.com/wa...Nks9S4IuO4 I will work with her to give her additional material that she can assign to her class to read, such as books and articles. Her students are very excited about learning about MJ, and many have decided to study MJ even after taking her course! Many minds have been changed! They love watching the “What Did Happen To Michael Jackson?” series on YT! Via word of mouth, enrollment in her classes has skyrocketed due to MJ! Minds are being changed about MJ! We will meet again in a few weeks and I’ll keep you guys updated! http://www.twitlonger.com/show/gmh4du

I don't really blame him so much as the people around him, he should have had smart people in position to put a stop to that shit. And I guess, being the veteran he was, he should have known how journalists above all want a scoop, they don't care for morality, immorality or anything else. It was all downhill from there, the family in the vid smelled money and here we are years later with a dead hero. If I saw bashir I'd go to jail for kicking his ass, I swear I would.

I agree the people in his life were toxic and that's how he got into this huge mess, but he also had to take responsibility and that's the sad truth, though it's terrible what they all did to him, and they killed him first.

Jacksons "Bashir" interview has the distiction in the UK as being one of the last "Most watched" specials ever on TV. Outside of sports and soaps, interviews and specials like Jacksons interview just dont get those viewing figures anymore. It was a huge event in the UK and everyone was talking about it the next day.

Infact, in the UK, Jackson came off more of a victim then anything thanks to the smarmy Bashir. He was hated after this interview and fled to the US. Jackson was still foolish to ever hire the man though, and blamed Uri Geller for introducing him to him.

Personally, out of all the interviews he has done publicly, this one was the closest you got to see the real him. He generally seemed not happy, and was in complete denial about how many surgeries he had on his face which made him look completely stupid. Otherwise it was still a fascinating, if rather horrible documentary, particually as Gavin was featured in it too, which would of course put the doc in a new light after the trial.....

interesting, didn't know that about the uk. I do know that they seemed to totally be oblivious to americas issues with certain black celebrities. Muhammad Ali is well loved over there, inspite of all the "racist" things he said here in america, I'd say a good portion of the public still hates him for the draft thing and his former militancy. Michael was always fascinating, my best friend said after the Bashir interview, as we laughed at the whole thing "he's still the most interesting motherfucker". He looked bad at many junctures and should have known better by those points in his career as to how he would be percieved and how the media works. But you know, I actually like his early print interviews, he could say really insightful stuff and was still as much in touch as could be expected. The whole stardom thing warps anyone it touches, not just michael, and all stars seem to be really, really deluded about their images.

Michael Jackson’s Former Bodyguard Claims Blanket Is His Son

by Renee Morad | April 26, 2012 at 8:41 PM | General

(AP Photo/Joel Ryan)

Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard, Matt Fiddes, claims he is the biological father to Jackson’s 10-year-old son Prince Michael II. What’s more, he’s launching a legal bid to prove it.

Fiddes said the late Jackson told him, “He’s my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him,” according to Contact Music. The former bodyguard claimed that he gave Jackson his sperm in 2001 at a London hotel after Jackson told Fiddes, a martial arts expert, that he wanted an “athletic child.”

Blanket, which is the name Prince Michael II goes by, was born a year later.

“Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life,” Fiddes said. He added that the only way that’s going to happen is by taking legal action. “I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof,” he said.

Fiddes is the father of three other children. “I just want access,” he said as he explained the motivation behind his battle for visitation rights.

If Dr. Klein's sperm was Prince's, that would make Debbie and Dr. Klein employees who did that lol

In all seriousness though, I thought that was the stupidest shit, and even more so when Mark Lester gave his two cents.

It¨s been over here in tabloids already. Pathetic really. Can't belive that guy has the nerve to say that. Have you seen him? lol

Blanket is Michael's clone. Just look at that picture.

Et Tu, Brutus? If you stop telling lies about Michael Jackson, we will stop telling the truth about you. Matt Fiddes Michael Jackson Lies Over Blanket’s Biology Posted on April 19, 2012 9 Even journalists like CNN's Alan Duke have acknowledged the resemblance. - October 19th 1999 - Matt Fiddes stages a show at his martial arts center using a Michael Jackson impersonator, but someone reports to the press that it was Michael, “When asked why Jackson would have a yen for Barnstaple, Regan surmised, “Michael is keen on karate, and it could be [him] because world martial arts champion Matt Fiddes is friends with Uri Geller, and Geller is friends with Michael.” It was a claim his people denied, as he had been in Los Angeles the entire time. It turned out to be the MJ impersonator Navi. - March 4-7th 2001 – Michael flies in to London to give a speech at Oxford University, Matt claims he first works for Michael here. - June 11th-18th 2002 - Michael flies in to London and Uri Geller asks his friend Matt Fiddes to work as one of Michael’s bodyguards during the Exeter City event. Michael was not his employer and did not pay him, Fiddes wanted to work for Michael for free, as Matt has said himself. (Geller famously sold his friend Michael Jackson to Martin Bashir for a reported $200,000k.). - During his speech Michael gives thanks to David Blaine, Patti Boulaye, Uri Geller and then has to be reminded what Matt Fiddes name was. - August 22nd 2002 - In an article about Michael’s July visit to London, Uri Geller says that Michael generously bought toys for Matt Fiddes’ children: “I was with him in the toy department when a bodyguard mentioned his two step-children – that guy is a world champion kick-boxer, with the muscles to match the belts, but it took him three trips to get all his packages down to the cars. Somewhere in Devon, two kids own every fragment of Star Wars merchandise on the market.” - January 16th 2008 - Sells a story to The Sun about his friendship with Michael, using one of the public photos MJ took with him back in 2002. Although Uri Geller had said it had taken 3 shopping trips to take the stuff Michael had bought Matt’s children home in 2002, Matt claims here that his kids only, “came home with just a few bits and pieces.” - 11th August 2008 - Matt Fiddes sues his friend Tito Jackson over a loan he claims he gave Tito of $20,000k, claiming Tito still owes him, “£12,051.20.” Tito can’t even keep the 20 pence, Matt? - November 2008 - The documentary “The Jacksons Are Coming” is aired, featuring the Jackson family visiting the UK and considering buying a home in Devon, England. Matt Fiddes makes himself available as a local guide on the basis of his previous tenuous association with MJ. Reports on the doc from the Daily Mail: “Tito recalls: ‘Matt started to get in more and more shots, and didn’t want this or that person to be involved because it would take away from his screen time. ‘Jane Preston, the documentary-maker, wanted to show the public what it was like to be me without the showbusiness and the bodyguards, but he wanted to do all that because it got him camera time with his boys wearing his karate jackets. Everything he did was to get publicity.” Certainly, the documentary appears to back Tito’s side of the story, particularly when it emerges, during the course of filming, that Matt was engineering press opportunities during their stay.” - 22nd November 2008 - Tito Jackson responds to Matt Fiddes’ lawsuit against him, “Some people want to be seen in your company and want to piggyback on your 40 years of hard work. I was supposed to have been godfather to two of his kids, but I cancelled that, because I can’t be a godfather if I can’t even get along with the father.” - 3rd July 2009 - Just over a week since his best friend’s death, Matt sells stories to the tabloids about Michael’s addiction to drugs, saying he and Uri Geller were forced out of Michael’s world because of this. In reality, Michael had cut off contact with Uri after he had been the one to sell him on to Bashir, and as Matt was only a friend to Uri, Michael no longer needed to use him as an umbrella holder on his London visits. Michael returned to the UK in 2006 and 2009 and Matt Fiddes was nowhere to be seen either time. It should also be noted at this time that if he believed Michael to be such a drug addict, why would he not be concerned about Blanket Jackson’s safety around Michael? - 6th July 2009 - In an article in People magazine where it’s reported that Katherine has banned MJ hanger-ons from attending the memorial, Matt coincidentally says that he and Uri Geller did not receive any invites to the MJ Memorial. “among those yet to receive invites are Uri Geller and UK bodyguard Matt Fiddes. Matt said: “We haven’t received any tickets yet in the UK. I’m hearing it’s the same for many of Michael’s friends here.” -19th July 2009 - Matt Fiddes speaks to People.co.uk, where he says MJ spoke often of death and dying and had considered freezing himself or having a clone made using his sperm. “Eventually when he realised these choices were not likely to be available to him in his own life time he did mention freezing his sperm. He liked the idea that in theory his ‘life force’ could be around for hundreds of years and be released at the flick of a switch.” - 9th August 2009 - Matt goes on Sky News to back up Mark Lester’s story about being Paris’ father (Paris says she is biracial and Michael’s daughter; Lester also previously gave an interview in 2001 where he had said he had not spoken to MJ since the 80s before they got back in touch through Geller in 2001, Paris was conceived in 1997). Incidentally, Uri Geller is good friends with Mark Lester, Matt Fiddes, Shmuley Boteach, Deepak Chopra and was the one who introduced MJ to Bashir for a fee. I’m sure it’s a coincidence that so many who went on to exploit their association with MJ are all associated with Geller and each other. No mention of him being the father of Blanket here. - 28th Jan 2010 -Matt Fiddes alleges the Jacksons move to Devon was a “stunt”, but is forced to admit that, “he was instrumental in concocting the bogus story, which he claims was intended to earn Tito money and help revive his career.” - 4th April 2010 - Someone asks MJ’s bodyguards — who worked for Michael from 2007-2009, including on his visits to Vegas and London – on facebook what their thoughts were on Matt Fiddes; they can be added to the list of people who did not know who he was. - 10th June 2010 - Matt is ordered to pay Channel 4′s legal costs of $14,000 - 22nd June 2010 - The day before his trial was due to begin, he drops his lawsuit against Channel 4 because, Fiddes “had submitted what he claimed to be “a highly relevant and significant document” to the court. He claimed that the new evidence had only recently been discovered, but the defendants alleged that the document was a forgery, leading to Fiddes withdrawing his fakery allegations and the case collapsing.” He was forced to admit that he, “publicly acknowledges that the programme was not “faked” as he has previously claimed and has today withdrawn his allegations of malice.” Mr Bellamy said Channel 4 would not chase Mr Fiddes for its £1.7 million cost because, they said, the self professed millionaire would “simply not in a position to pay” . Stephen Lambert, chief executive of the documentary production company, described Fiddes as “vainglorious” and “a fame-seeking fantasist”. Ms Preston said that Fiddes’s “smears and scurrilous accusations” had devastated her professional life and career for nearly two years. Katherine Jackson released a statement in which she said: “‘Fiddes tried to pretend that he was a close friend of my son Michael, but when I spoke to Michael about him, he could not remember who he was. The whole family was deeply upset by the interviews he gave shortly after Michael’s death, which no friend would have done.’ “After that, Fiddes wrote to my son Tito and said that if we gave evidence against him on behalf of Jane and the others, then we would regret it. We decided we were going to come and tell the truth about him anyway. You have to stand up to people like this.” - 25th September 2010 - Matt Fidde’s publicist Max Markson (who claims Matt was there when Michael held Blanket over a balcony in Germany in 2002 – Matt was not there) tweets to his followers: “Lol!! @Mario_Pettinato. It could be a big Michael Jackson week this week !!! Go google MATT FIDDES …he’ll be in Sydney+Melb this week! 1:40 AM Sep 25th @Mario_Pettinato I think it’ll be the other way round ! He’ll need my protection by the time he gets here !!” This is interesting considering that Matt claims he was forced into coming forward. - 26th September 2010 - Matt Fiddes allegedly sells his story to News Of The World, where he claims to be Blanket Jackson’s father. He claims he was offered £500,000 ($1,000,000) by Michael for his precious “athletic” seed, but that he turned it down. I’m sure he turned down all payments for selling these stories too, what a guy. Matt claims it was Mark Lester who told Matt he was the father of Blanket in 2003. Matt says here he has no concrete evidence to prove he is the father and that Michael never told him that he was. He says that Michael only asked for his sperm after he heard that Matt was infertile (infertile men are always at the top of my list when it comes to sperm donors), and that Michael was only going to use this sperm to test it for Matt (so why claim he offered him money? Who pays someone to have their sperm tested for them? Was Michael hoping it would lead to a cancer break through?). He’s suggesting here that Michael stole his sperm and used it himself. He claims he visited a hotel in London 3 times in March/April 2001 to have his sperm tested (yes, he seems to believe this is how it’s done) – Michael was not in London in April 2001. He says that he and Mark Lester are planning on launching a case for custody against the Jacksons if Katherine passes, so that they can have custody over Michael’s biological children. - 26th September 2010 - Michael’s make up artist Karen Faye says of Matt on her twitter, “I am repulsed by this man. He has run to the tabloids since the moment I met him in 2002. Him and Uri Geller creep me out.” - 27th September 2010 - Allegedly sells his story to TMZ where he claims that he was forced to come forward because documents from his channel 4 lawsuit, which did not involve either Blanket or Michael, let alone any personal details relating to the Jacksons at all, revealed that he was the father. I wonder if it was those documents he was alleged to have forged himself? Keep this in mind, because at this point he is now claiming he has legal proof about this, while at the same time also stating that “as far as I am concerned, Michael Jackson is the father,” and that, “If anything happened to Mrs. Jackson, I think Tito Jackson and his sons would be best suited to look after Michael’s children.” He adds, “I don’t want to create a war with the Jacksons again about something so private.” That was a quick custody battle. To prove that this is a matter he is being forced into, he generously supplies TMZ with a photo of himself as a child for them to compare against Blanket: As TMZ reports, “ehh…” They asked their viewers if there was a resemblance to which they responded: He also says, “I’ve seen pictures of Blanket in a karate suit with a ponytail, which is the sort of thing Michael would do, he’s a joker, y’know, and things, and he likes to create things and create perfection.” It should be noted that Blanket Jackson was only seen wearing a karate outfit after Michael Jackson had passed away, so Michael had nothing to do with playing any practical jokes on anyone. Also should be noted that ponytail’s aren’t a genetic trait. Matt says, “And I’ve had to come clean to my friends when I realized the story was going to break so I lied to them and denied it to protect Michael’s privacy that I donated sperm.” He had to come clean so then he lied to them? Is he telling on himself here? And then finally, any reasons to make these claims? “I’ve got no reasons to make any claims on that.” What happened to the court docs? To Mark Lester telling him? To those 3 occasions where he jerked off into a cup for a doctor in a hotel room in London? - 10th October 2010- In a statement released on his own website, he once again asserts that he was forced to come forward because of court documents. Which court case? Which documents? Which national paper? Alleged forged documents relating to him being a “fame seeking fantasist” in the Channel 4 case that didn’t involve Michael? Documents where he has petitioned for a DNA test? Does he realize what would be involved in such a petition? Strange that The News Of The World, TMZ and neither any other news site that he has spoken to of his own volition has ever mentioned, heard, or leaked these documents. It’s because these documents do not exist. He says once again on words on his own website, “I have never said I am Blanket Jacksons father, nor has Michael told me this, the only person he confirmed it to is Mark Lester his best friend.” His defense for why Katherine said Michael did not know who he was is, “Sadly Katherine Jackson does not know the history between Michael and myself as was due to watch 90 mins of private footage of Michael and I supplied by my best friend Uri Geller. As bodyguards changed in 2001 and I first got to know her in 2008.” 90mins of Michael standing under your umbrella (eh eh eh) in 2002 sound riveting. Forget Kath, I’m sure if Michael had seen this footage he would have remembered who you were, too. - 17th November 2010 - Matt Fiddes claims that in 2 months (January 2011) he will be flying out to California to take a DNA test with Mark Lester in order to establish that they are the father’s of Michael’s biological children. This threat never materializes. - 3rd December 2010 - Matt allegedly sells another story about Michael, this time claiming that the stress of putting himself forward as Blanket Jackson’s delusional father caused him to take an overdose of the same drugs Michael died from and that they were found in Michael’s body. Touching story, except Michael Jackson did not die from Soma tablets, none were found in his possession, none has ever been associated with him. The most amusing aspect of this story is that he claims he was prescribed 5 of these tablets by a Michael Jackson doctor (naturally, I’m sure it’s the same one he jacked off to) in 2002 and he’d stored them 8 years before finally using them. Soma aka Carisoprodol has a shelf life of 2 years, so I’d be curious as to what effects a drug that had expired 6 years before could do to a person, but maybe Matt could share that with us sometime. - 10th February 2012- Matt sends out a press release gushing about his new secret relationship with Z-list celeb Bianca Gascoigne. He claims once again that it was something they’d kept private but that it had been forced into the public domain. The papers were so amused by his press release, they released it on twitter. He obsessively tweeted about this relationship to “friends” and journalists for days, as well as obviously referencing his best friend Michael Jackson and the lesser I-haven’t-jizzed-in-a-cup-for-you-friends, Mark Lester and Uri Geller: Matt Fiddes @@AuraMayfair great club, n great security!Too much paparazzi! Bianca Gascoigne is used to it!I am used to pushing paps from Michael Jackson! Matt Fiddes @AuraMayfair best night out I had, thanks Jack Tweed n Bianca, amazing club!

Matt Fiddes She has the Paul Gascoigne legacy hanging over her,just like I do MJ, n Uri Geller was very happy! yfrog.com/eslfvhfj Matt Fiddes Why would we not work? We both had unusual upbringings with me n MJ n my success,n her n Paul Gascoigne as a father. We never asked for fame Matt Fiddes No its not about the money,she never asked for a penny, she is thrusted into the limelight like me yfrog.com/ocm7ulaj Throughout all this Bianca Gascoigne fails to acknowledge him once, although she did manage to tweet: “@BiancaGascoigne #TEAMSINGLE“ It seems their love affair of the ages has ended as Matt has removed “boyfriend to Bianca Gascoigne” on his twitter bio (yes, he really did this), I guess they both succumbed to the pressures of their legacies, but I do sure hope they still get together for that Christmas fitness DVD. On his twitter he also said that he was selling a hat MJ had given him and donating the proceeds to charity, but then a few posts later says that the proceeds will go towards his own children: - 18th April 2012 - Once again, Matt sells a story to the Daily Star claiming that he is Blanket’s father and is demanding a DNA test and visitation rights. He claims now that Michael had told him he was the father in 2002 after he had held Blanket over the balcony (an event to which Matt was not present for, except perhaps in spirit), “I sat there and asked the question: “Is Blanket my child?” He said: “He’s my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him.”, I’ll requote his own words from News Of The World just 2 years earlier: “I never asked Michael if Blanket was mine and he never told me.” And again on his own website 2 years ago, “I have never said I am Blanket Jacksons father, nor has Michael told me this, the only person he confirmed it to is Mark Lester his best friend.” He claims that he is going to fly out to LA in June to go ahead with all of this, and is now obsessively tweeting the Jackson family, including Michael’s children. Matt then proceeds to tweet links to all articles referencing this story on his twitter: I’m sure that’s a normal reaction to such a private intrusive story about your long lost child. Also interesting considering he’d previously declared this to be an account about his martial arts work: Though, it doesn’t stop him from again keeping his young martial arts students updated about his love life right after that, April 21st: - 18th April 2012- Matt Fidde’s ex girlfriend, Carly Galliford, launches an attack on Matt at twitter, saying he admitted to lying about being Blanket’s father to her, and had referred to the scheme as a “money maker.” Australia is where Matt first launched his media trip about this story in 2010. - How do we know Carly is his ex-girlfriend? He says so himself: ‏ Martin Hewlett responds and shares that he has also been physically and legally threatened by Matt: Martin Hewlett is a Taekwondo instructor who Matt had directed his attention towards on the 22nd of June 2011, demanding a “no rules cage fight” between the two to settle their differences, even though he admits they don’t know each other: Martin took that to mean “he wants to beat me up, a clear pre-meditated act of violence.” Which is an interesting position to take for Matt who advocates an anti-bullying campaign, NoMoreBull. Also interesting are his denials of drug use, when he has previously admitted publicly in a story to having taken the muscle-relaxant Carisoprodol 6 months prior to this. Maybe one of the side effects of that expired drug is memory loss. I highly anticipate this book and documentary starring him, I’m sure they’re working on the finishing touches right now. - 21st April 2012 He reveals the reason why he felt this was something he could lie about, he believes that Michael’s children aren’t “black” enough to be his, and therefore he could exploit them as he likely believed nobody would be able to tell him any different. As well as now claiming that MJ was infertile: That he thinks saying this is some kind of defense is pretty damning. I guess Matt didn’t hear that Michael’s autopsy proved he was actively producing sperm at the time of his death: The story that he was infertile came from an ex-boyfriend of Arnold Klein’s, Paul Gohranson, in a story he had sold before the autopsy was made public, proving him to be another liar too. What’s most interesting about this, is that on the 19th of July 2009, Matt claimed Michael had spoken to him about freezing his sperm for future use. “Eventually when he realised these choices were not likely to be available to him in his own life time he did mention freezing his sperm. He liked the idea that in theory his ‘life force’ could be around for hundreds of years and be released at the flick of a switch.” As well as: “When and where he might have frozen his sperm only a chosen few would know.” Suggesting he is one of the chosen few with knowledge about this. No mention of fertility problems there. Michael’s daughter Paris with Blanket last year: Does Matt, who claims to have been so close to MJ through the last 10 years, not recall meeting Michael’s biracial cousins, like Anthony Jackson? Is Matt Anthony’s father too, perhaps? Paris’ comments about whether or not she is mixed race: - 21st April 2012 Jackie Jackson’s daughter Brandi Jackson tweets: In response Matt says: For anyone who is unaware, as Matt obviously is, Brandi Jackson was the star of Michael’s LA Gear Commercial, can be seen sat with him in his 2300 Jackson Street video, starred in Black Or White with him, was with him on the set of Remember The Time and modeled with him in the LA Gear print commercials. She can also be heard picking up the phone for him here. Michael and Brandi and the "few times" they met. Now Matt’s claiming to have “practically lived” with Michael for 10 years. A couple of days spent holding his umbrella for free have turned into 10 years of practically living with him and nobody else in his life knowing about it. I wonder if he was the fan that Michael’s real bodyguards have said was caught living in Mike’s kitchen one time. Is he saying that court proceedings are already under way which is why he’s speaking about it? No court documents relating to this have ever been filed, there are no court reporters who have reported about this, it is only public because Matt has made it public. Executive TV Producer Jodi Gomes, who is a long time friend of the Jacksons and produced their reality TV series in 2009 as well as their 1992 TV series, also tweeted: - 24th April 2012 - Daily Star reports on how world martial arts expert Matt has told them that he has had to hire a bodyguard after a mob of supposedly 50 fans showed up outside his door this weekend, forcing him inside. I would’ve called the police if some 50 odd people turned up outside my door and not The Daily Star, but perhaps that’s just me. I also suggest he hire a full time bodyguard to restrain all the Daily Mail, News Of The World, TMZ, Daily Star and The Sun reporters who obviously camp outside his door all year for these intimate scoops he claims he does not leak himself and are the cause of such unwanted attention.

I wish there was law making such idiotic allegations a crime cause you are "hurting" someone with this so why should it be legal? I am sure the courts would have half the work they do if such law existed.

Michael Jackson’s Former Bodyguard Claims Blanket Is His Son

by Renee Morad | April 26, 2012 at 8:41 PM | General

(AP Photo/Joel Ryan)

Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard, Matt Fiddes, claims he is the biological father to Jackson’s 10-year-old son Prince Michael II. What’s more, he’s launching a legal bid to prove it.

Fiddes said the late Jackson told him, “He’s my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him,” according to Contact Music. The former bodyguard claimed that he gave Jackson his sperm in 2001 at a London hotel after Jackson told Fiddes, a martial arts expert, that he wanted an “athletic child.”

Blanket, which is the name Prince Michael II goes by, was born a year later.

“Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life,” Fiddes said. He added that the only way that’s going to happen is by taking legal action. “I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof,” he said.

Fiddes is the father of three other children. “I just want access,” he said as he explained the motivation behind his battle for visitation rights.

disbelief

WTF!? just cause you yourself are athletic,does not mean that your abilities are going to be passed along through your sperm. Does he seriously expect people to believe that Michael thought that,that was how it worked? lol

It's funny how guys who don't look like they could resemble that child wanna claim that they delivered the seeds to create them... plus this isn't the first time Matt Fiddes had claimed "Blanket" was his biological son. It'll go away like the time Mark Lester claimed Prince and Paris were his kids.

They do it just because they know they can get away with it and the only reason they can get away with it is that it concerns Michael Jackson. They would never dare to say it regarding anyone else's child.

You know speaking of the interviews earlier, after watching the body language alalysis, I thought about them for the first time coming from MJ's point of view and when you do it, you gotta feel sorry for him. As some said here, the early 80's interviews were wonderful, but the last ones were odd. But when you think of the questions they asked him back them compared to the questions they asked him later on, it's obvious why. There are some great interviews that Mj gave later on when he was asked interesting questions like the private conversation with Bret Rattner. But how must it felt when you give worldwide intreviews with questions touching either very painful and private stuff (Joseph, vitiligo), or very embarrassing stuff (whether he had or enjoyed sex plus being asked that in front of your wife who I am sure he loved very much at that time and she was brought into a very embarrassing situations just because he was sitting next to her. If it concerned anayone else, noone would ever asked her that. Plus seeing how disgusted they are and how they think she must be crazy to have slept with him as if you were the most disgusting thing in the world to be touched...) or the most offensinve ones (like "do you molest kids?" with people looking at you like "don't lie to us you don't when we all know you do) and have to answer them intelligently, calmly and convincigly and try to hold your tears back while answering them at the same time... How could he even survive something so humiliating?

"When Michael Jackson is just singing and dancing, you just think this is an astonishing talent. And he has had this astounding talent all his life, but we want him to be floored as well. We really don´t like the idea that he could have it all."
