Michael Jackson's Family Accuses Executors Of Forging Will In Angry Letter

Michael Jackson’s Family Accuses Executors Of Forging Will In Angry Letter

The Jackson family is accusing the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate, John Branca and John McClain, of forging his will and have fired off an irate five-page letter demanding their immediate resignation.

A copy of the letter was obtained by Celebuzz and outlines the complaints of MJ’s siblings, stating, ”At the time we couldn’t possibly fathom what is so obvious to us now: that the Will, without question, it’s Fake, Flawed and Fraudulent.”

The letter continues and is rather blunt with the accusations: ”Since the passing of Michael, our beloved brother, you have failed to perform your duties as executors of his estate, but what you have not failed at is taking advantage of a grieving mother, father and a grieving family.”

The Jackson write that they have proof that Michael never signed the alleged will. ”The Will that you presented did not have our brother’s signature on it, nor did it have a signature page attached to it.” When the family questioned Branca about the missing signature page, he supposedly replied, “It was on its way, and you were having just a little problem finding it.”

The Jacksons also state they have verifiable proof that Michael was not even in Los Angeles on July 7, 2002, the date the will was allegedly signed by Jackson.

”Our brother told us, in no uncertain terms and without hesitation in the months prior to his death, that he despised both of you and that he did not want either of you to have anything to do with his life or estate for that matter,” the Jackson family boldly claims.

Branca and McClain have since responded to the letter, and seem to suggest the Jacksons are merely upset that they were excluded from the will, saying, “We are saddened that false and defamatory accusations grounded in stale Internet conspiracy theories are now being made by certain members of Michael’s family whom he chose to leave out of his will.”

Interestingly, Branca and McClain’s attorney Howard Weitzman even suggests that the accusations have already failed in court. “Any doubts about the validity of Michael’s will and his selection of executors were thoroughly and completely debunked two years ago when a challenge was rejected by the Los Angeles Superior Court, the California Court of Appeals, and finally, the California Supreme Court,” he told RadarOnline.

Kanye West Presents Kim Kardashian With Sentimental Gold Skull Statue

Kanye West Presents Kim Kardashian With Sentimental Gold Skull Statue

Given his penchant for extravagant spending, it should come as no surprise that Kanye West has recently been showering those closest to him with $34,000 gold skull statues. If nothing else, at least we now know that he’s a practical gift-giver!

For Father’s Day, Kanye got pal Jay-Z a yellow gold skull statue with 1,680 star-cut red topaz gemstones set around the head. Good luck topping that one, Blue Ivy.

Kanye, who didn’t trust ordinary shipping services with such an extraordinary gift, chartered a private jet (he must be really into those) in order to hand deliver the statue to the new father.

Lest girlfriend Kim Kardashian become jealous, he gave her one as well — though Kim’s is adorned with white sapphires and reportedly engraved with the letters “KKW” for “Kim Kardashian West.” Awww. Slightly less pricey than the tricked-out Lamborghini Kim bought Kanye for his birthday, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

West apparently found inspiration for the gift after discovering that Michael Jackson gave the same one to Elizabeth Taylor, which is simultaneously sweet and ominous.

Our only question: If red roses mean “I love you,” what does a gold skull statue set with white sapphires mean?

Taylor Swift Relives Awkward Ex Encounter For 'Story Of Us' Video

Taylor Swift Relives Awkward Ex Encounter For ‘Story Of Us’ Video

After the premiere of her “The Story of Us,” video, Taylor Swift opened up to MTV News about how it felt to watch the clip and relive the emotions behind the Speak Now song, which was inspired by a seriously awkward awards-show encounter with an ex.

“Anytime I’m onstage or watching the music video, the first thing that comes into my mind is the person I wrote the song about,” she told MTV News’ Sway Calloway during “MTV First: Taylor Swift.” “It’s like the first thing that you think of is the moment that inspired the song, which is that excruciating, awful moment when you run into an ex for the first time.”

Just because Swift’s awkward ex encounter was at a Hollywood event doesn’t mean her fans can’t relate. The singer said life as a celebrity is “just like in high school, except at an awards show. You go on living a normal life, except on a different scale. I tend to focus on love, feelings, emotions, what it was like feeling that particular relationship.”

While the song doesn’t directly address that awards-show encounter, it does touch on the themes of knowing when it’s time to move on from a relationship.

“Noble Jones, the director, had sent in this treatment. He had it set in a library, and I called him and I asked him if he’d be willing to change it to an Ivy League feel,” she explained of her input.

Sway asked if the “Story of Us” heroine was at all connected to her “You Belong With Me” character. “Well, I think the biggest difference between the new video and all the other ones is that I love to make a happy ending happen, and with this video, it doesn’t happen,” she said.
