New Jackson Leak a Tempest in a Teacup? Act of Desperation? MJEOL Bullet #155
Tabloid reporter Diane Dimond has somehow gotten her hands on what she claims to be the settlement document from 1993.This was such important news that both Court TV and, later, MSNBC, broke into their programming to talk about this new 11 year old information.And for what?
After all the initial craziness, what we now know is that Jackson didnt pay the accuser millions of dollars after all.It was, from the info in the document, paid by an insurance company.
If this document is indeed authentic, however redacted, we also learn that the money went into a trust fund for the accuser, not directly to him.We also know that Jackson maintained that he is innocent of any wrongdoing in the settlement.
