Enough is Enough
Publicist: Leave Jackson alone 12/9/05
Rumors of Michael Jackson’s troubles are being shot down by his publicist.
In an e-mail today, Raymone Bain says reports of health and financial problems affecting the 46-year-old, repeated as late as today on KEYT-TV by former Court TV reporter Diane Dimond, arenot true.
Earlier this week the National Enquirer reported that Michael Jackson had suffered several drug overdoses and that his condition was now ‘critical’. That story is entirely false.
It is not unusual for tabloid papers like the National Enquirer to publish such fiction – but in recent weeks many stories have come out of Santa Barbara, seemingly linked to the DA’s office there, alleging one thing or another about the King of Pop.
It is interesting to note that these odd rumours and stories – apparently connected to the same office which tried unsuccessfully to prosecute Michael earlier this year – have coincided with news of a major new Michael Jackson release.

In an exclusive statement released to Access Hollywood, Michael Jackson’s spokesperson fires back at reports that the pop star has suffered an overdose from drugs and alcohol.
In response to a story by The National Enquirer that Jackson suffered from an overdose from drugs and alcohol, his spokesperson and publicist, Raymone K. Bain, released the following statement to Access Hollywood:
"Michael Jackson and been working with several artists recording his Katrina Relief song, and with me all week, including today. He is doing fine and I have never seen him happier or healthier. Whomever these individuals are who are intent on disseminating false information throughout the media regarding Mr. Jackson, should begin hiring good attorneys; and the journalists who continuously rely on these ‘sources’ should begin checking them thoroughly, because Mr. Jackson’s tolerance level has come to an end."
"The Green light that people have thought they have had to willfully impugn Michael Jackson’s character and integrity has now become Red."
