A former bodyguard of Michael Jackson has been caught on camera attempting to sell the surgical face mask worn by the king of pop the night before he died. Jackson, who was known to rock a surgical mask in public quite frequently, also slept in them and apparently the bodyguard felt it was ok to snatch it for a profit.
News of the World, a U.K. tabloid, obtained footage of the bodyguard, Eric Muhammad, as he secretly demanded $150,000 for the mask in an apparent set-up. The tabloid was tipped off by an LA businessman, after he’d been approached by Muhammad to negotiate purchase of the legendary icon’s mask. News of the World sent in a replacement who pretended to be the ‘customer’ and a deal was made.
Muhammad, 36, is shown in the video boasting of his close relationship with the Jackson clan and even pulls out a paystub as proof of his employment. The footage captures Muhammad negotiating the deal for the deceased singer’s property:
I’ve got the mask that he wore on the night before….he died. This is a very personal item. This is the only way I could, you know, preserve it. This was HIS and you are more than welcome to DNA it. It still has his make-up on it. It still smells like him.
I was really banking brother on getting the money from the tour to do me well. And I’m not asking for a handout. To part with that, is very sentimental to me and I would hope that you obviously consider that.
Muhammad reportedly obtained the mask the day he took Jackson’s three children to the Los Angeles hospital to see their Dad, who was ultimately pronounced dead. View the appalling video below: Continue Reading…
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hit up The Tyra Banks show recently to promote “Before I Self Destruct.” On show, which aired yesterday (Dec 1st), 50 allowed Tyra to *cough* feel him up. After speaking about baring his butt in his full-length film that’s included with his CD, an intrigued Tyra patted down his backside, as she grabbed his butt she got way more than she bargained for! A hand full of cash!
“I’ve never in my life seen anybody with that much money in their back pocket,” Tyra tells him.
“I like to have cash on me because it feels like I have money,” 50 replied.
50 also discussed how he made amends with his ex-boo Vivica Foxx, “I called her and I said, ‘You got to stop fighting me and be in my video.'” They have since made amends and she even agreed to appear in his new video, “The song is about when relationships don’t work, and when I explained it to her it kind of intensified what the song was about.”
During the interview, 50 flirted with Tyra quite a bit and even said he was there to take her away. Very interesting…

It’s official! Keyshia Cole is knocked up. After the singer was been spotted rocking what everyone thought was a baby bump a few weeks back, Sister2Sister has confirmed that she is definitely with child:
A source close to the “Trust” singer told S2S that Keyshia is expecting and the baby is due in March. There’s no word on what the baby’s gender is at this time.
This news confirms rumors that Keyshia is pregnant. She’s also been spotted several places sporting a prominent baby bump. Most recently she was seen courtside at a Cleveland Cavaliers game cheering on her man, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.
Although, the couple is having a baby together, they’re not planning to jump the broom just yet. Put simply: Daniel hasn’t put a ring on it yet.
That isn’t the only new addition to Keyshia’s family, though. We found out that Frankie has located another of her long-lost children, a 17-year-old daughter, who is also expecting.
I had to read that last paragraph twice. I can’t. I’m refusing to let Frankie steal Keyshia’s shine!
Keyshia was spotted at a recent appearance during Thanksgiving and she is definitely sporting a baby bump. CLICK HERE to view those images + video of the happy couple over at Mrs. Grapevine.
City of Atlanta Mayoral candidate Mary Norwood said she will officially seek a recount after losing the race to former Senator Kasim Reed by less than a 1% margin. According to the AJC, Mark Henderson with the Fulton County Elections Office confirmed that all but about 700 provisional ballots had been counted. The ballots can’t be tabulated until Thursday, which is the deadline for those voters to provide verification they were eligible.
According to the official tally, Reed led by 750 votes, so even if all of the provisional ballots go to Norwood, it still may not change the outcome but Mary’s not going down without a fight:
“I think a recount, when you’re this close is appropriate, absolutely appropriate,” Norwood said at a Wednesday morning press conference at her headquarters.
“We came within a razor thin margin of not being able to say we’re the front runner today.”
Under state law, a candidate who loses by less than 1 percent of the votes cast has the right to request a recount. Reed, however, has already claimed victory in the race and is going about the business of setting up plans for his first term as mayor.
The voicemail message allegedly left by Tiger Woods for his alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs has finally been revealed. Yesterday, Grubbs came forward claiming she had startling proof that she had been Tiger’s jumpoff and was gonna release a voicemail, she claimed was Tiger asking her to change her voice recording cause his wife was on to them.
Well…she kept her word. In the audio released by US Weekly, you can hear someone who sounds alot like Tiger asking Jaimee to remove her name from her own voicemail, because his wife “went throught my phone and may be calling you.” *sigh*
