Jackson Granted Day's Reprieve

LATEST: MICHAEL JACKSON was given an extra 24 hours to pay staff on his closed Neverland Ranch overdue wages amounting to $306,000 (GBP180,000) and fines of $100,000 (GBP58,800). The extension means the THRILLER hitmaker now has until 5pm today (15MAR06) to pay the penalty and outstanding wages, before facing possible court action. State regulators made the threat after shutting down the 2,800-acre (1,130-hectare) estate last Thursday (09MAR06) and fining the THRILLER singer and his ranch operators after discovering his workers' compensation policy lapsed in January (06). Employees also complained they hadn't received a pay packet since 19 December (05). RENEE BACCHINI, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Industrial Relations, maintained Jackson was "aware" of the extension. She revealed they had been generous with the deadline after the singer's financial representatives contacted the department. Bacchini said, "They are trying to come up with the money. They're trying to work with us." The singer has been living with his three children in Bahrain since July (05) - one month after he was acquitted of all charges in his child molestation trial.

Well, so much for JacksonJunior's "theory" from the 13th! Hey JJ! What happened to this so-called "separate account" that MJ has just for paying his employees at Neverland? Looks as if MJ must've sucked that one dry also. Otherwise, why are his financial advisers "trying" to come up with that piddly of an amount that is owed to the employees? Remember, you stated that a "close source" of Michael's told you about it. And you put that in writing - you fool! You have NO "close source" to Michael. You are simply trying to be someone you are not - just like MJ. Henceforth, your word is just as good as his - which, in layman's terms, means you are also a liar. Wanna try again? All you accomplished with that statement from March 13 was make yourself look even stupider than you are. And YOU have the nerve to come on here and call other people names? How utterly and unequivacally pathetic! But, then, I guess I should've expected that from someone who looks up to a pedophile who is so ashamed of his own race that he couldn't even stay black!

If the State of California has any balls at all, they'll nail this scumbag just like any other business owner who screws their employees. No more extensions California. This weasel keeps escaping justice by the wig on his head. It's time someone stepped up and put a stop to it.news://alt.music.michael-jacksonhttp://www.childrenhatemj.net/
