Jackson Linked With Pellicano Case
MICHAEL JACKSON hired jailed private investigation ANTHONY PELLICANO during his child abuse case, according to Vanity Fair magazine. Pellicano is currently awaiting trial on charges he illegally wiretapped the phones of a number of stars including SYLVESTER STALLONE, GARRY SHANDLING and KEITH CARRADINE. CHRIS ROCK has already been revealed as one alleged client of Pellicano's; now the magazine claims Jackson, STEVE BING, STEVIE WONDER, JAMES WOODS and KEVIN COSTNER also used his services. Jackson is alleged to have paid Pellicano $2 million (GBP1.1 million) ahead of his child molestation trial last year (05). Bing reportedly paid him at least $100,000 (GBP55,000) during his paternity case with ELIZABETH HURLEY.
