David Gest Promises Unique Jackson Show

David Gest has pledged to show Michael Jackson in a "truly unique light" in his new documentary.

The producer has interviewed the late 'Thriller' star's friends and family for the forthcoming four-hour documentary which includes intimate glimpses into his life, including a tour of his childhood home with brother Tito Jackson, while his mother Katherine shares her memories of her son - who died of acute Propofol intoxication last June - for the first time.

David said: "I have tried to show Michael in a truly unique light. I have spent the past three months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in his life. I believe this popumentary will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was. I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind. He was a very complex individual and this special reveals the many different facets of his personality."

In addition, the film - which will be distributed worldwide - will also include interviews with Smokey Robinson, Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, Michael's assistant Frank Cascio, and co-writer Siedah Garrett among others, chronicling the iconic singer's obsession with his appearance, marriages to Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley and battle with prescription drugs.

Also included in the show is a rare never-before-seen interview between Michael and David at the 'Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration, The Solo Years' which revealed the 'Billie Jean' star's real deep voice as he plays jokes on his pal.

Tito said: "David had one of those rare friendships with Michael where Michael could always be himself. As teenagers and into their twenties they were inseparable and were always getting into trouble and playing jokes on everyone. David was the other brother by another mother to Michael and I! He was never afraid to stand up to Michael and tell him the truth, whether he wanted to hear it or not."

This one seems like it's going to be really good. I can't wait until it comes out. I just hope that Gest wont be like some of the other Michael Jackson friends who has flip the script on him like Dr. Klein did with their b***sh*t lies.

You know SWB, that's an exellent point that you bought up...I wonder why also. I'm thinking in this society once you've been labeled an addict, you remain an addict your whole life whether you are using or not. They consider addiction a life-long disease that there's no cure for. I personally disagree...I think that it depends on the individual & the reason the person started using in the first place. The way that the bodyguards described Michael, it doesn't seem to me that he was an addict. It seems that he took drugs, but not regularly like most addicts do. Dr. Death lied about weaning him off of the propofol, it's not an addictive drug. As far as Gest, he was talking about how MJ had too many plastic surgeries & how Michael suggested that he also have some work done, which I feel is totally wrong, because the amount of surgeries MJ had is nobody's business & he should not have been saying that period. Gest blamed MJ for his face being F***ed up after taking his advice. I'm surprised that the family are supporting his project. I guess compared to all the other no good friends saying that MJ had too many surgeries is no big deal. I just hope that he is not disrespecting or revealing information that he knows that Michael would want to remain private in this show.
