Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson banned kid's friends from parties

Michael Jackson reportedly banned his children from inviting friends to their birthday parties.

The late King of Pop, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in 2009, used to throw his three children - Prince, 17, Paris, 16, and 12-year-old Blanket - lavish parties with clowns, magicians and cakes, but never let them invite their pals because he was over-protective of them.

Michael's former bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Jayon Beard have made the claims in a new tell-all book, which reveals details of the Jackson family's lives in the two years before the 'Thriler' hitmaker's death.

Speaking about how Michael would pay to have entire cinemas and toy shops shut down so that his children could have privacy, Jayon said: ''That's all they knew. They knew to cover up and call each other code names in public.

''He didn't have any internet in the house. The kids couldn't watch regular TV, so they never saw how he was portrayed.''

The security guards have also revealed that the pop star carried two suitcases with him everywhere he went - one containing two Oscar awards won by 1939 film 'Gone with the Wind', for which he paid £1 million, and another containing thousands of dollars in cash.

An extract from 'Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson', which appears in the Daily Mirror newspaper, read: ''He would go into a store and buy everything. When we stayed in hotels he would buy thousands of books. At one point, he bought a whole bookstore.''

The statement that Michael Jackson BANNED schoolmates from his childrens birthday parties , was never made in the book being discussed. As with everything , that seems to be written by the tabloid press, this is a fabrication. The book said MJ childrens were home schooled and didnt have playmates for that reason, and MJ didnt trust many people ,due to how many have betrayed him in the past....Given the headline of this story , I dont blame him , as it seems people always misrepresent anything he was involved in , to make things more strange than they ever were.

This book is kinda disgusting. So much for professionalism. These security guards would never dare releasing such a book if Michael was alive. Maybe someone should've reminded these security guards who paid them before they exploited someone who is no longer here to refute any untruths or exaggerations, which are no doubt in this book.
