Globe magazine reports that according to a key insider, Michael Jackson has been calling family members in the middle of the night in tears, feeling the pressure of his child molestation charges. “He’s really having a hard time right now,” the source revealed. “It looks like it’s all starting to get to him. He still maintains his innocence, but he is very, very depressed and scared. As always, he remains very close to his mother, Katherine. And he has trusted his brother Randy with all the day-to-day details of his defense.”
Jackson’s Big Screen Hopes On Hold
June 1, 2004 – The New York Daily News reports Michael Jackson’s legal woes may have stalled his big screen hopes, where he had landed a 10-minute role in Bryan Michael Stoller’s spoof ‘Miss Cast Away’, starring former ‘Joe Millionaire’ Evan Marriott. “We’ve sort of had to put things on hold,” Stoller revealed, adding that Jacko “has an amazing vision” after spending at least one day a week at Neverland “mentoring” him on filmmaking.
Another Claim Of Michael Jackson Abuse
May 29, 2004 – News of the World reports that a second youngster has accused Michael of sex abuse, alleging the singer filmed him as he carried out depraved acts. “I wouldn’t be in his bedroom. He’d do the sadistic acts, sometimes taping it, in a darkly lit room. He’d just be getting his kicks,” the now 18-year-old accuser revealed. “The room had bare walls and had two camera lights and a chair which he’d make me sit in. There might have been a bed too. It was dark. I recall a director-type, an older guy with white hair. He would be holding the video camera and directing, telling Jackson what to do and sometimes they’d collaborate.”
