Nigel - but it wasn't kept quiet was it... he was crucified in the press... he knew a lot of things that they didn't want to get out... Michael genuinely loved children... Just go see what Cory Feldman said about him, beaeing in mind that Cory Feldman is currently doing everything he can to expose the paedophiles that run Hollywood.

Whether MJ was a sex offender or not, its a bit strange for an adult to want to sleep in the same bed as a child, MJ's actions left him open to all sorts of accusations.

Sorry, but to my mind, paying someone off like that stinks of a cover-up.

I'm afraid if someone came up to me and asked for money or they would make up a load of stuff about me I would be happy to meet them in court and, particularly if I had Jackson's millions, would fight it to the death!

I think it is quite possible Michael Jackson was innocent and merely lacked the education and street smarts and good sense to avoid appearing guilty of something he wasn't.

I'm not making a judgement either way - I'm just saying I can see how it might happen. As I understand it, his childhood conisted of beatings, bullying and focusing 100% on the family firm. Afterwards when he went solo he was surrounded by sicophants and those looking for an opportunity to get some of his money. He was in a bubble of unreality. Even his doctor was a highly-paid flunkey to told him what he wanted to hear and proscibed him whatever he asked.

Quote from article on distinguishiing between artists and their works.

"The celebrated writer William S Burroughs shot his wife in the face. The sculptor Eric Gill molested two of his daughters and his pet dog. The novelist Anne Perry helped to bludgeon her best friend’s mother to death with a brick. Lord Byron committed incest with his half-sister. Joe Orton boasted about having sex with underage boys. Caravaggio murdered a man while attempting to castrate him. Michael Bay made Transformers."
