Michael Jackson's furniture to be auctioned

According to TMZ (not the most reliable source), Michael ordered $700,000 worth of furniture from Italian designer, Colombostile, for his London mansion he was to use during his “This Is It” tour. Since the items were not delivered due to his passing, the company reportedly returned the money to Mrs. Katherine. They have opted instead, to auction off the furniture instead. Everyone is trying to trade on his name. $700,000 is a LOT of furniture! Michael was living large!

PETA wants to confiscate Michael Jackson's giraffes

Yes, I'm aware that's a llama in the photo.

"The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has sent a request to Page, Ariz., Police Chief Charlie Dennis to immediately confiscate two surviving giraffes that previously belonged to the late Michael Jackson.The request comes following the news that the other two giraffes acquired from Jackson’s estate died in the past seven weeks.“PETA recently learned that two of the giraffes have died and that the possible cause of death of at least one of the animals was improper feeding and/or exposure to cold temperatures,” a rep from the organization told Pop Tarts. “If this is true, the Hancocks appear to be in violation of state cruelty-to-animals law, and the remaining two giraffes must be removed as soon as possible.”The giraffes have been on city property since 2007 after they were acquired from Neverland Estate by Tom and Freddie Hancock of the Voices of the Wild Foundation, Inc., which operates Banjoko Wildlife Preserve in Page, Ariz. where the animals are kept.In a letter to Dennis, PETA urges the police chief to “thoroughly investigate this situation and if applicable, pursue charges against the Hancocks for the deaths of two giraffes and, most importantly, take immediate action to protect the remaining giraffes by confiscating the animals and relocating them to a facility that can provide them with appropriate care.”

Jackson Jet Judgement Overturned

An appeallate court judge has overturned the $20 million judgment awarded to Michael Jackson's former attorney Mark Geragos in a lawsuit against jet company XtraJet. XtraJet faced Federal criminal charges and a civil suit after secretly filming Michael and Geragos on a 2003 flight. The 2nd District Court of Appeal ruled on Monday, January 11, 2009, that the multi-million dollar amount against now-defunct firm XtraJet and its owner, Jeffrey Borer, was excessive. Jackson was filmed in conversation with Geragos while flying on an XtraJet plane from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara, California, to mount a defense against child molestation allegations. Jackson was later acquitted of all the charges in a court of law. XtraJet owner Borer plead guilty in 2006 to federal charges of conspiring to record Jackson. Geragos received $18 million of the $20 million; at Monday's ruling he was told he could either accept a reduced amount of $750,000 in damages or seek a new trial. His attorney Brian Kabateck made a statement to the Los Angeles Times saying, "I think we're going be retrying this case."

When $20,000 just isn't enough

Last year a judge awarded a monthly stipend of $26,000 to Mrs. Katherine Jackson, the children's guardian, and $20,000 for each of the three children. Apparently, the costs of their daily upkeep well exceed $20,000 because Michael Jackson's estate administrators are requesting additional funds for the care and upkeep of Michael's three children Prince, Paris, and Blanket.
