Michael Jackson - Jackson's Friend To Tell All About Superstar In New Book

MICHAEL JACKSON's former personal assistant and friend has landed a book deal to lift the lid on life with the late King of Pop.
Frank Cascio, who claims to have been a "lifelong" confidante of the superstar, will release his memoir My Friend Michael with publishers William Morrow this autumn (11).
The tome will provide fans with an "uplifting and definitive" account of Jackson and his "terribly scarred" experience of fame, according to a statement from the HarperCollins imprint.
Jackson died after suffering a cardiac arrest in 2009.

I agree with the first 2 comments...to many tell all books for money being made...if MJ wanted the world to know everything about his personal he would have wrote another book. At this point I wouldn't beLIEve a word of what is being said from these vultures and thieves that were all ways at his back... So shameless!!!!!

(quote) "I hope the tone will provide fans with an "uplifting and definitive" account of Jackson and his "terribly scarred" experience of fame!(end quote)" Michael was a very private person. I'm sick & tired of HATERS'DISSING him. As much as he demanded his privacy & would not be happy with this if he were still alive, I hope that the information in this book can show the world how amazing and wonderful he really was. Weve lost a priceless gem.'

After seeing the Cascio's on Oprah, I know they have MJ's best interests at heart (unlike that fat bitch Oprah) and look forward to reading what he has to say. Anything positive by MJ's friends is most welcome.

The words 'tell all' and 'lift the lid' sound like a media beat up to me. If one of the Cascios is going to write about Michael, I think it is something that we will appreciate reading... not like some of the other books by so-called friends or associates, who, unlike the Cascios, did not bother to stick around when things were tough for Michael. I, for one, am not going to be losing any sleep worrying what this might might contain... I think it will be very sympathetic to MJ. I hope so, anyway.

What a bunch of leaches, that's all I can say...he can't even rest in peace with people still having their hands in his pocket. WE don't need to read it...we know who Michael Jackson was, a caring, misunderstood, loving soul, with the biggest heart of all times. I love you Michael.

How can they do this to Michael Jackson. Please you gold diggers leave him alone let his memory be pure. I hope the Deathhoax site is true and he is alive and he come back and destroys all of his so-called friends. Maybe his oldest son should sue
