Jackson Accused Of Diverting Cash
Pop superstar MICHAEL JACKSON has been accused of diverting cash intended for the victims of September 11 to the Church of Scientology.
The singer recorded WHAT MORE CAN I GIVE? after the terrorist atrocities with a list of high-profile names, including BEYONCE KNOWLES, MARIAH CAREY and RICKY MARTIN, and all profits were meant to go to the families of victims.
However, according to Britain's DAILY MIRROR newspaper, Jackson has donated cash raised from the single - which was launched on the internet on Monday (27OCT03) - to an organisation called THE HOLLYWOOD EDUCATION AND LITERACY PROJECT (HELP).
The group are associated with the controversial Church of Scientology, which has been attacked by religious leaders for alienating followers from their families.
Celebrity columnist ROGER FRIEDMAN says, "What More Can I Give? will be collecting money for causes many stars may not have intended."29/10/2003 02:25
