As much as we want to believe he was a great father to his own children, we'll always wonder about Michael Jackson and all those allegations of child molestation. Now an associate of a private investigator is claiming Michael Jackson spent $35 million covering up molestations of 24 boys. The private investigator had supposedly been working for Jackson, looking for skeletons to hide in closets. London's Sunday People claims it has "secret FBI files" with all kinds of sordid details about the gloved-one's illicit actions.
Okay, we could get into those sordid details here, but I'm not going to. Instead, I have a few questions. First, isn't the timing here uncanny? We're hearing this story at the same time the Jackson family is suing a concert promoter for wrongful death. Secondly, FBI files?!? I guess if you have a serial pedophile who poses a threat to the public. But this just sounds like half-fabricated tabloid trash to me. I don't doubt that Jackson went over the line with a few boys -- he was not a well man. But this story is triggering my bullshit alarm.
But if you want to hear the sordid details, by all means -- read away. They're out there.
Do you believe this new story about Michael Jackson spending millions to cover up child molestations?
