Michael Jackson’s 7-year-old will was filed early today in a Los Angeles Court, giving his entire estate to a family trust. His mother, Katherine Jackson, is named as a beneficiary of the trust and the guardian of Jackson’s three children. The most surprising (or maybe not) part of the will is that Diana Ross is named as a successor trustee to Jackson’s mother if necessary. Which means Miss Ross would get his children if Katherine were to pass on.
On another surprising note, rapper The Game is speaking about how the gloved one attempted to end the 2005 feud between him and rapper 50 Cent.Â
Speaking with MTV, The Game said, â€œI was on tour in Canada, sitting in my room, cutting my hair. I was messing my hair up. Then my road manager knocks on my door. Boom, boom, boom. He told me, I got MJ on the phone. I ran and snatched up the phone.â€ The two stars spoke on various topics, including his children, Jacksonâ€™s love of his single â€œHate or Love It,â€ saving the touchiest topic of that day for last.Â â€œHe said, â€˜I donâ€™t know how youâ€™re gonna feel about this, but I want to ask you something. I donâ€™t want you to judge me, but I donâ€™t really know everything thatâ€™s going on between you and 50. But I want to be the middleman behind you putting this situation to bed,â€™ â€œsaid the West Coast lyricist. It was Jacksonâ€™s wish to facilitate a mediation session between the two musical titans, all in the hope that they would be able to put their differences behind them for the greater good; an act that would present itself as a positive example to the young and impressionable fans of both artists. He hoped showing them how to resolve conflict, could potentially change the cultural face of Hip-Hop culture. Wow, How great would that have been had it happened? Source
