She said, “I am the one,” but for now the courts told her to just beat it. A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday rejected a British woman’s seemingly off-the-wall claim that she is the mother of Michael Jackson’s three children on a legal technicality, according to City News Service. Nona Paris Lola Jackson, who refers to herself in court papers a “black Jew born in Britain” and signed her lawsuit “dudu,” filed her petition Oct. 20 in Los Angeles Superior Court asserting that she had a sexual relationship for years with the “Billie Jean” singer and asking that she play a role in the child custody agreement Jackson struck with ex-wife Debbie Rowe two months ago. However, after reviewing the case, Superior Court Judge Robert A. Schnider dismissed the motion, saying the U.K. native offered no evidence before the hearing that Jackson and Rowe were alerted to her filing, despite the fact that attorneys for the estranged couple showed up in court. There was no immediate comment from the Jackson camp following Wednesday’s hearing. When the suit was first filed, the entertainer’s publicist, Raymone Bain, said she preferred “not to focus attention to this ludicrous claim.”

Around 20 pupils from Holy Family Catholic College, Shernhall Street, Walthamstow, were asked to sing with Mr Jackson on-stage while he sang We Are The World at the glitzy award ceremony in Earls Court. But the pop star got cold feet and fellow singer Beyonc Knowles, who was going to present him with an award, was left waiting for 20 minutes. In the end, Michael Jackson managed to sing a couple lines from the song he wrote and produced with Lionel Richie.

Will Media Get Over Being Wrong about Jackson? – MB#320 [gallery]134[/gallery] Nov 15 2006 – With Michael Jackson tearing through the streets of London and causing total pandemonium, a few “news” agencies have taken it upon themselves to whine about whether the public will accept Jackson’s “comeback”. Let’s get real here: Jackson is currently being honored for his massive achievements by the World Music Awards, and is being recognized for the records he’s set by the Guinness Book of World records. He hasn’t released a new album today, or started a new tour. But already, at least two articles from Reuters, both by the same person, appear to be seeking to preemptively strike with negative comments about what Jackson is capable of achieving in his musical future.

Michael Jackson returns to spotlight

[b]Michael Jackson returns to spotlight[/b] By KATIE FRETLAND, Associated Press Writer LONDON – Michael Jackson gave his first public performance Wednesday since his acquittal on child molestation charges a year-and-a-half ago — a fleeting rendition of “We are the World” surrounded by youthful singers. Jackson, 48, sang at the World Music Awards in London, which was honoring him with an award commemorating the 25th anniversary of his hugely popular album, “Thriller.” But the reclusive pop icon, who has been traveling in Europe since his June 2005 acquittal in California, did not perform the album title song as some expected. Instead he appeared on stage and sang among a group of swaying, clapping kids — until the musical accompaniment inexplicably stopped.
