Jackson Fights Off Suicide Reports

As MICHAEL JACKSON prepared for the first day of his child molestation trial yesterday (31JAN05), he was forced to fight off a new set of accusations - that he had plans to kill himself.

The 46-year-old BAD singer appeared in court in Santa Maria, California, yesterday morning as the jury selection process began.

And while he confronted his more serious charges, he was stunned to learn that reports claiming he was suicidal were circulating.

His spokeswoman RAYMONE K BAIN insists that Jackson's "spirits are great", adding, "He has the support of his family, his children, his friends. You're going to see a Michael Jackson who is going to be here today who is very serious - very businesslike and very serious."

Jackson is charged with molesting a teenage cancer patient and plying him with alcohol. He vehemently denies the accusations.
