Poor Michael Jackson....they say it comes in threes and we've had Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahan and now Michael. It's been a very sad week. Michael is one of nine children and was born August 29th, 1958. Friends say he's been under incredible stress for such a long time and he had also been working so hard on the British tour that this is not totally surprising. The Apollo Theatre marquee reads, "A True Apollo Legend" and that he was. He was inducted twice into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Jackson Five and also as a solo artist. The 13 time Grammy winner has made over $750 million in sales from his many hits.
In the famous "Thriller" video, his vixen girlfriend was played by a fellow Playboy Playmate, Ola Ray--Miss June 1980. She was in the process of suing Michael and his production company for breach of contract. Sources say she has not received any royalties from this world famous video. Wonder what will happen to her lawsuit now....RIP Michael.
