Michael Jackson‘s former sugar daddy, Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad al-Khalifa states that he dropped mad cash for Michael to receive some mind-altering motivation:
“Mind-mapping and motivational guru” Tony Buzan came to Bahrainfor a week at the singer’s request, said Bankim Thanki, lawyer for Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad al-Khalifa, who is suing Jackson for $7 million in a breach-of-contract case here.
Buzan “did not come cheap,” he noted in court today: Buzan charged $37,000 a session for a total of $343,000.
“Who paid for that? Yes, Sheikh Abdulla,” said Thanki.
The 33-year-old sheikh – son of the king of Bahrain – alleges that Jackson took millions in advances from him but failed to deliver on contractually agreed projects, including an album, a “frankly personal” autobiography and a musical. (Source)
Former NBA superstar and current hoeMichael Jordan says he’s being harassed by a former jump-off. The woman, Lisa Miceli, 35, of Meadville, Pa. (NOT pictured above!) has made claims that Jordan fathered her 4 year old son. Jordan agreed to two paternity tests and both were negative. However, Miceli ~with obvious dollar signs in sight ~ wouldn’t give up and tried to force Jordan to take a third test 😯 and a judge has now issued a restraining order against her!
Jordan agreed to the second paternity test only after Miceli agreed to have no contact with him if he was ruled out as the child’s father. Despite that, Miceli has continued to contact Jordan and his associates through hundreds of e-mails and phone calls in the ”mistaken belief that she still has a valid paternity claim against Jordan,” Sperling said in court documents.
Miller issued a restraining order against Miceli in response to that lawsuit. Earlier this month, Miceli asked the judge to lift a restraining order and make Jordan submit to another hearing on the paternity issue. (Source)
Chick still trying to get child support even after two tests and is now arguing that the restraining order “prevents her from negotiating a child-support settlement” with Jordan! You go girl…keep trying! Maybe the 3rd one will come up positive… 😕 What’s even funnier about this story is that Jordan actually entertained this woman’s wishes….TWICE!
The Atlanta Hawks haven’t been the same since Nique left…but I digress! In light of this weekends NBA AllStar festivities, I thought I’d give you youngstas a lil history lesson… This slam dunk contest was held in Chicago back in 1988 and featured two star players…Michael Jordan (23) of the Chicago Bulls and Dominique Wilkins (21) of the Atlanta Hawks. MJ took the prize but Nique gave him a run for it!
Pure entertainment! I love it!! Check out those itty bitty shorts and Nique’s high top fade…oh, and let’s not forget that Mike did have hair once upon a time…
…and in case you missed Dwight Howard’s Superman dunk last night, check it out after the jump. Continue Reading…
