In March 2010, Michael Jackson's estate has signed a sweeping contract with Sony following which the record label will have the complete rights to sell the Pop icons back catalogue and many of his previously unheard recordings.

Jackson's kids are Prince Michael Jr., Prince Michael II (aka: Blanket) and daughter Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Marlon is his brother. Jackson's friends say he wanted to be a good daddy to his children raised kids with loving discipline and guided them with loving discipline-something he never got as a child. Jackson wrote a will in 2002 making his mother Katherine Jackson as the guardian of his children. He named Diana Ross as the guardian of his kids if anything happen to his mother.

Relationship with Debbie Rowe

Relationship with Quincy

Legendary music producer Quincy Jones was behind the success of Jacko's hits such as "Thriller" and "Bad". However, in September 2008, Quincy refused to help Jackson saying he is busy working on a big tribute collection set for next spring.

Relationship with Bob Jones

Bob Jones worked as the Jackson's PR for 35 years. Jones guided the pop legend through his several scandals, including his troubled marriage with Lisa Marie and Debbie Rowe, and the Jordy Chandler episode.

However, their association came to an end in 2005 when the singer, who was being tried for child sexual abuse, fired Jones without prior notice. Consequently, Jones along with writer Stacy Brown, published 'Michael Jackson : The Man Behind the Mask' threatening to expose the true Jackson. He also agreed to testify against Michael in court right before his book hit the shelves. Jones, however, withdrew from his stand in the court unable to testify against Jacko.

Relationship with Billy Jean Jackson

In December 08, Billy Jean Jackson, a women claiming to be mother of Jackson's son Prince Michael II sued Jackson demanding $1bn.

Friendship with Elizabeth Taylor

MJ and Elizabeth Taylor are friends. For more information, read Elizabeth Taylor & Michael Jackson.

Security

Jackson had a huge fan following who follows him all the way. Jackson had a very little public life off stage because of this. He was once spotted entering a Los Angeles comic store from the backdoor wearing masks.

Being a popular personality, MJ always had tight security. Bill Whitfield, Javon Beard and Mike Garcia are his former bodyguards.

Gay / Masquerad as a woman

Celebrity biographer Ian Halperin, in his book Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson said Jackson was gay and dressed like a woman with his lovers. The author alleged to hold documents proving Jackson's insurance company forced him to shell out millions to a teen who accused the star of molesting him. In May 2010, his former bodyguards who were interviewed by ABC in March agreed to re-appear in a chat show to dismiss rumours that MJ was gay.

In June 2010, his close pals have denied rumours that MJ was not a paedophile or homosexual.

Health

Jacksons rep said that Jacko is perfectly fine and that he is not suffering from any life threatening disease (lung condition and internal bleeding, and had lost vision in one eye).

Jackson underwent a number of plastic surgeries and facial reconstruction surgery.

Death

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 after he reportedly suffered a massive heart attack due to drug overdose. Dr. Conrad Murray is his physician who treated him before his death. Police investigation and court battle on Murray was on to ascertain if he is responsible for MJs death or not.

Michael Jackson Ghost

Jacksons fans flooded the Internet with messages after allegedly spotting his ghost at Neverland Ranch that was captured live in a TV programme last week. In October 09, MJs sister La Toya said MJs ghost has been visiting the family dressed in the white pearl beads he wore in the coffin.

Post-death

In April 2010, the only portrait of MJ ever sat for is up for grabs online. MJ's wax statue is up for display at a wax museum at Lonavala city, Maharashtra by an Indian artiste. He is part of the hall of fame at New York's Apollo Theatre.

In June 2010, his items including kitschy furniture and extremely personal mementos are reported to be going under the hammer on 1st death anniversary.

In November 09, the mystery surrounding his final burial site has finally come to an end with the first publicly-released photo of the tomb.

Bad

Jackson was so terrified while shooting for his Bad video in Harlem, New York, that he held hands with co-star Wesley Snipes.

HIStory

HIStory is undoubtedly Jackson's biggest hit. The HIStory tour has grossed $178 million.

Lawsuite by Prince Abdulla Al-Khalif of Bahrain

In November 08, Prince Abdulla Al-Khalif of Bahrain has filed a lawsite against Jackson for £ 4.3 million for not sticking to his record deal. The Prince claims that Jacko had signed an exclusive deal for an autobiography, two albums and a musical, but that he never came through with the deal. He further claims that he had given Jackson, 50, a 180,000-pound Rolls Royce, and bailed out his Neverland ranch after his acquittal on child-molesting charges in June 2005.

Jackson attorneys told the London court that he is too sick to appear in court and is awaiting test results on a mystery illness but will give his testimony via video link from the U.S. The Sheikh, in his lawsuite claims having paid a Brit motivational expert 175,000 pounds to help the singer regain his confidence and honour their deal because Jackson had suffered stage fright post his child abuse trial and needed "creative assistance". The lawsuite also listed itemised spendings which included a 3.79-pound tub of ice cream, 200 pounds of Bodyshop lotions and pampering products, a trip to a toyshop for MJ's family, a day in a waterpark, one Ferrari and two luxury all-expenses-paid holidays in Dubai amongst others. The suite said he gave Jacko over $1m even before they had met

Auction of items

In December 08, news was out that his is auctioning 2,000 items from Neverland ranch which he quit in 2005 after his acquittal in his infamous child abuse case. The actual items for auction were announced in February 09 and includedAmerican Music Award for Thriller, a velvet cape given to him by his children for Father's Day in 1998, a pair of rhinestone-trimmed socks from 1981, a basketball signed by Michael Jordan and his own original artwork, platinum and gold records, a customized Harley Davidson and a Rolls Royce limousine. The 5-day auction begins on April 21, 09 and will be conducted by Julien's Auctions.

In June 2010, his legendary Swarovski Crystal glove won a standing ovation at an auction in Las Vegas where it was sold for 128,000 pounds.

Comeback & Retirement - London O2 gig

In November 08, Jackson is offered a deal of over 30 shows at the London O2 Arena and might be joined by Janet Jackson. He is likely to make 150 million pounds comeback with the 30 London gigs performance. Jackson announced plans for summer residency of the concerts as well as his retirement. However, secret details of the concerts were leaked even before the official announcement when blundering advertisers put up posters plugging the shows hours. Secret details of the concerts are reported to be leaked even before the official announcement when blundering advertisers put up posters plugging the shows hours. The 'tour' is promoted by AEG, the world's largest promoter. A section of the media reports that Jackson has annouced the tour solely to come of his financial problems and debts while other reports suggest the tour is for his kids. The tickets will go on sales from March 11, 2009. Fans are warned against buying fake tour tickets unless official vendors sell them.

Jackson cleared medical tests before making his comeback announcement but asked for a fleet of doctors to be ready to take care of him in case of any emergency.

In June 09, he said he is fury over being forced to do 50 gigs in London instead of the desired 10. His London gig preparation turned into a nightmare for promoters after making a series of weird demands for child choir.
