[b]Michael Jackson’s Finances Just Fine – Adviser[/b] Mon January 12, 2004 06:11 PM ET By Howard Breuer BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (Reuters) – Michael Jackson’s closest advisers huddled privately at a posh Beverly Hills hotel for several hours on Monday and emerged to declare that the pop star’s finances were going to be “just fine” as he battled child molestation charges. The reclusive self-declared “King of Pop” was not in evidence at the meeting which included members of the Nation of Islam, whose new role as his security provider has generated controversy. Jackson’s criminal lawyer Mark Geragos also attended along with a group of financial aides and Jackson’s music manager Charles Koppelman, who when asked about the state of Jackson’s finances said the pop star was going to do “just fine.” Koppelman said that reports that Jackson was having difficulty meeting a payment to a bank for his purchase of the Beatles song catalog was erroneous but added that “we discussed his assets” at the meeting. He also added that Jackson was not going to lease his Neverland ranch about 150 miles north of Los Angeles. Nation of Islam member Tony Muhammad, who attended the meeting, was asked what his group’s role and said, “Most of the people in the room were Jewish. This is not about any one religion.” :nav[url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=12985]FULL STORY >>[/url] :nav[url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=12985]Comments?[/url]
