Debbie Rowe: ‘I’d Buy The Bullet That Kills Conrad Murray’

Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe has threatened to help a fan of the King of Pop kill his disgraced physician.


Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of administering the propofol dose that killed Jackson in 2009 and he has spent the past two years behind bars. He was released earlier this month.
And after the medic revealed in a recent interview that he and his former boss would joke about Rowe’s looks, the former nurse, who is the mother of the late pop star’s two eldest children, has hit back.

She tells TMZ.com that Murray should watch what he says and look out, because within 18 months “a Jackson fan will shoot him dead, and I’d buy the bullet. I wouldn’t shoot him but I’d buy the bullet.”
Commenting on Murray’s remarks about her looks, she adds, “If I had a dog as ugly as him, I’d shave its a**, make it walk backwards and put a wig on it… At least I can breed. He can’t even write prescriptions anymore.”

Michael Jackson Named Top-Earning Dead Celebrity

Late singer Michael Jackson has been named the top-earning dead celebrity for 2013, by Forbes Magazine.

The administrators of the King of Pop’s estate have brought in an estimated $160 million in the past year, according to Forbes magazine, thanks to deals with Cirque du Soleil and recorded music sales.

Jackson beats Elvis Presley, whose daughter Lisa-Marie was once the pop star’s wife, and Peanuts cartoonist Charles M Schulz, who comes in third with a $37 million fortune.

Elizabeth Taylor and reggae star Bob Marley round out the top five.

Ironically, Jackson topped the very much alive Madonna on the pop fortune list – the Material Girl singer was named the top earner on the 2013 celebrity 100 list, with $125 million in earnings.

Lady Gaga in Bidding War for Michael Jackson’s Head Injury Photos

Lady Gaga is reportedly in a million dollar bidding war to purchase photos from Michael Jackson’s horrific fire accident in 1984.

The Applause hitmaker has made it no secret she’s a devoted fan of the King of Pop, and now she’s planning to add to her collection of odd items with a set of one-of-a-kind memorabilia.

Bosses at Flatsigned auction house in Nashville, Tennessee are selling the original medical records and photos from Jackson’s traumatic head injury, which were found in a trash bin near the hospital where Jackson was treated in Los Angeles, California, nearly 30 years ago.

The photos show Jackson’s injuries after his hair caught on fire on the set of a Pepsi commercial, leaving the singer with second degree burns.

Flatsigned boss, Tim Miller, tells the International Business Times that he believes the items are such a hot commodity that the final price could reach around $2 million (GBP1.3 million).

He confirms, “Lady Gaga’s attorney and ours have been dealing with each other and she’s very much in the frame.”

This won’t be the first time Gaga has spent her fortune on Jackson memorabilia – last year (12), she purchased 55 items that once belonged to the legendary singer, for a reported $1 million (GBP667,000).

Michael Jackson Sought Home Advice From Donny Osmond

Michael Jackson used to call Donny Osmond and quiz him about his home life in an effort to learn the key to balancing his family and his career.

The Puppy Love hitmaker reveals the King of Pop would confide in him about his struggles with fame and would regularly ask for advice.

Osmond tells the New York Daily News, “I’ve been in show business for 50 years, and the secret is stability, and that is home. What my wife, Debbie Osmond, has created at home gives me a foundation so that I can go back out in this crazy world…

“Michael Jackson would call me once in a while and ask me, ‘How do you live your home life?’ Michael would always say, ‘What’s your home life like?’ He never had that kind of stability.

“He tried. I knew Mike so well, and I would go over to his house. It was all about gold records, it was all about accolades.

“You walk into my home, you wouldn’t find a gold record on the wall. You would find pictures of my kids, pictures of the grandkids. That is what home is all about. If you can keep your perspective there, your feet stay on the ground.”

Osmond pays tribute to the late superstar nightly during his Las Vegas residency with his sister Marie.

Jackson died in 2009.

Sharon Osbourne To Testify in Michael Jackson Case

Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has been subpoenaed to testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.

Opening statements in the battle between the King of Pop’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and concert promoters AEG Live began in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday and on Tuesday, Ozzy Osbourne’s wife was served with papers demanding her attendance to serve as a witness for the prosecution.

The TV personality had previously been named as a potential witness after confessing that she may have evidence to support Katherine’s claim that promoters were negligent in ignoring life-threatening health concerns while organizing the Thriller hitmaker’s doomed This Is It comeback gigs.

Speaking out during an episode of her chat show The Talk in early April, Osbourne said, “There were certain people that worked at that company (AEG Live) that knew that Michael Jackson was not well and didn’t care because it was business. And, at the end of the day, whether he performed or he didn’t, they would still make money, and I’ve had conversations with certain people at that company who have said exactly that to me.

“If they would like me to go to court, the Jackson family, I will stand up and tell you who said that to me.”

Osbourne was served with court papers shortly before filming began on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk, and she has no problem with the order.

She explains, “I was like, what do you do (after being served)? You do your duty. Somebody asks you to come to court, you are subpoenaed and you do your duty.”

Katherine Jackson is reportedly seeking more than $40 billion from AEG Live executives for loss of future earnings and other damages. She also wants the concert bosses to be held responsible for hiring Conrad Murray, the medic who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for causing the superstar’s death in 2009.
