La Toya Jackson, the grieving sister of the late Michael Jackson, blames a seedy cast of manipulative hangers-on for effectively murdering her star.

In an interview with the Daily Mail (UK), La Toya, who signed her brother's death certificate, portrayed Michael Jackson as a lonely, isolated figure.

A figure at the mercy of a shady, money-motivated clique.

She accuses people with access to Michael Jackson of cutting the star off from his family and friends and forcing him, largely against his will, to sign up for the gruelling commitment of 50 concerts at London’s O2 arena.

Those shows were set to begin shortly after he died June 25.

La Toya Jackson believes her brother was fed addictive drugs by handlers who wanted to control his moods. She says they regarded him as a "cash cow" and exploited him at every turn. It was this, she believes, that led directly to his death.

While the cause of Jackson's death is unknown and the formal state autopsy results not due back for weeks, La Toya had a private autopsy conducted.

She received the results on Friday and while she won’t comment on the details until the police and coroner's office conclude their investigations, she did reveal that four fresh needle marks were found on Michael Jackson’s neck.

  • La Toya Jackson
  • Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

La Toya, 53, said: "I believe Michael was murdered, I felt that from the start. Not just one person was involved, rather it was a conspiracy of people."

"He was surrounded by a bad circle. Michael was a very meek, quiet, loving person. People took advantage of that. People fought to be close to him."

"A month ago, I thought Michael was going to die before the London shows because he was surrounded by people who didn’t have his best interests at heart."

"Michael was worth a billion dollars. When anyone is worth that much money, there are always greedy people around them. I said to my family a month ago."

"He’s never going to make it to London."

La Toya said Michael himself never believed he would live to be an old man and feared he would die in his fifties, and that he was isolated from his family.

She says she is speaking out now to "put the truth out there."

The LAPD has not ruled out classifying Jackson's death a homicide if it is revealed that his doctors provided and administered substances that killed him.

For Lady Gaga's lucky band members, the view you see below is nothing new. Nor is it really a shock for fans to get a glimpse of it at this point, either.

Lady Gaga, who takes the stage in everything from bras that shoot sparks to giant buttons and gimp masks, stops at nothing when it comes to fashion.

Many more pics like this, though, and instead of a "Poker Face," fans are gonna want to show her their "o-face." Maybe. Some think she's a "butter face."

Here's Lady G at the Oxygen music Festival in Ireland ...

Bent Over

When you are Lady Gaga, no pants means no problem.

Just another riveting show in the life of one of the world's rising pop superstars. Love her or hate her, the girl is becoming a musical and style sensation.

Kim Kardashian made a grand return to the Playboy mansion.

Only on this date, no nude pictures resulted from the trip.

Sorry guys.

The reality star and her family host the "Aces and Angeles" charity event at the Mansion, benefiting Orange County Professional Firefighters Association Fallen Firemen's Relief Association Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen's Fund.

It's always nice to see stars give back and show respect for important causes. But it's also nice to see this, a shot of Kim showing off her most prized asset ...

Kim and Booty

A wise woman once said Kim's booty should have its own social security number. We think she meant to say ZIP code, but the point remains - thing is pretty substantial.

Also on hand were Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian and the even more useless and poorly spelled Brittny Gastineau. Click to enlarge more photos of KK:

Britney Spears' Circus tour rolls on, and the star is not getting any less hot with each passing city. On the contrary, in fact, the girl is looking better than ever.

Not only is Britney delighting crowds the world over, but she herself seems happier these days - perhaps because her children have come along for the ride!

Here's Britney with her son Jayden James, 2, in Denmark over the weekend, where she took in the sights and then put on one heck of a show in Copenhagen:

She's probably not converting to Judaism for Jason Trawick, but being in love has probably done wonders for the superstar's spirits, as well. As it should!

Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife and biological mother to two of Michael Jackson's three children, has kept a low profile since the icon's death on June 25.

But now that a hearing has been scheduled at Los Angeles Superior Court July 20 for temporary guardianship of the children, Rowe will be seen.

"[Debbie] says that she will definitely be at the custody hearing," says Marc Schaffel, a business partner of Jackson's and a close friend of Rowe's.

Rowe's children – Prince Michael and Paris Jackson, 12 and 11 – have been staying with their grandmother Katherine Jackson at her Encino, Calif., home since the star singer's death, along with Blanket (Prince Michael Jackson II), 7.

Jackson's youngest child was born from an unidentified surrogate.

While Debbie Rowe famously tried to give up parental rights to Prince Michael and Paris - and still to this day extols Michael Jackson's virtues as a father - her lawyer says she will fight for custody now. Whether she'll get it is unclear.

Katherine Jackson was named guardian in Jackson’s will, which was revealed last week, and is petitioning the court to keep the children with her.

Neither party is required to appear personally in court, officials say.

What do you think? Should Debbie Rowe get custody?

Be careful what you write in your high school yearbook, teens. It may end up looking pretty creepy years later (then again, there's always Facebook).

Michael Jackson's former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, fulfilled some or most of her high school fantasies when she became a part of the late superstar's life.

Michael Jackson Jr. Birth Certificate

It's a bit sad, but true.

Jackson is mentioned not once, twice, or thrice, but four times in Rwaramba's 1985 yearbook from The Academy of the Holy Family in Connecticut.

Here's one of those references:

In one section, fellow classmates apparently predicted Grace Rwaramba would marry the singer and have her "own generation of Jackson 5."

Well... she came pretty close!

In the wake of Jackson's June 25 death from cardiac arrest, Grace Rwaramba spoke out about his drug addiction and financial problems. Michael's three children are said to be close with her, having been cared for her for a long period of time.

We reported Friday that 22-year-old party girl Hailey Glassman is dating Jon Gosselin, father of eight half-white babies and the estranged wife of Kate Gosselin.

While we were fairly confident this report was true, given our sources, we had not yet seen photo evidence of the sexy new couple to establish it 100 percent.

This should clear up any doubts that Jon and Hailey are an item ...

The pair was spotted in Saint Tropez, France, where they spent time on a boat owned by Christian Audigier - creator of Jon's unofficial douchebag fashion line, Ed Hardy - before heading to the Saint Tropez Polo Club to drink some champagne.

Guess Jon is making up for lost time now that he's free of the ball and chain known as Kate. Good thing she never cries, according to her Match.com profile.

Hailey Glassman is the daughter of the Nyack, N.Y., plastic surgeon who did Kate's tummy tuck operation following the birth of the sextuplets. The irony.

Despite two #1 singles and a #1 album, Lady GaGa is flat broke. Those gimp masks, bras that shoot out sparks, latex granny panties and stilettos ain't cheap.

“I’ve gone bankrupt about four times. My manager wants to shoot me," she tells The Sun (UK). “Every dollar I earn goes on the show. We’re finally getting to a place where it’s not bankruptcy. Then again, with another tour coming up I’ll probably be homeless.”

Throwing Flowers

The New Yorker plays her first London headline show next Tuesday at the O2 Academy Brixton. Then later this year she kicks off a U.S. tour with Kanye West.

Never one to downplay her own talent or cultural impact, she said: “I can’t give any details, but it will be one of the most important moments in music ever.”

If you don't say so yourself.

All this focus on her career is wreaking havoc with the star’s weird taste in men. Lady Gaga says her ideal man would be ... dead German composer Beethoven.

Naturally. But at the moment she’s not seeing anyone. She said: “I’m a single girl. I like to have a good time." Our condolences, random boyfriend Speedy.

But, because someone's gotta experience the majesty of Lady Gaga naked, after all: “I just sleep with the guys in the band all the time because it’s easier.”

Good call. Sometimes it is all about convenience.

One of the many sons of the notorious Nadya Suleman (a.k.a. Octomom) has reportedly attacked his grandmother (Octograndmom) with a knife, reports sat.

He was running at her and screaming: “I’m going to kill you!”

The 69-year-old woman told the celeb news tabloid the National Enquirer: “He was out of control. He chased me with a knife and threw sharp objects at me.”

Of course, Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets and six other effing kids, did not try and stop him - she was apparently too scared of "provoking" him.

Now that's good parenting, ladies and gentlemen.

Octomom Picture

The boy chased the pensioner through the house, and after struggling with him to take the knife away, she locked herself in her bedroom for 10 minutes.

Critics are again asking whether 14 children are too many for Nadya Suleman to look after. We have no idea where they would get that crazy notion.

Family friends are worried about the children in the chaotic household of jobless Octomom. One said: “Nadya doesn’t have a clue how to be a mother.”

It is not the first time this particular Octoson has attacked.

When he visited his mom and the octuplets in hospital, he reportedly pushed the grandmother up against the wall. She fell on the floor and hurt her arm.

It's been too long since we had some good Octomom gossip. She makes us sick, but she is entertaining. Click to enlarge more Nadya Suleman pictures ...

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan tied the knot yesterday in Malibu, Calif.

The two stars said "I do" in a 15-minute ceremony on the grounds of Church Estates Vineyards, the same venue where Fergie and Josh Duhamel wed.

More than 200 guests attended the nuptials. A source tells Us Dewan's maid of honor was Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui. Also in the bridal party? Tatum's sister Paige and Haylie Duff, accompanied by the groom's pal Nick Zano.

The bridesmaids all wore light pink dresses.

Beneath a white altar covered in roses, Jenna Dewan wore a white strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a long veil. Tatum wore your basic black suit.

When it was time for their first kiss as husband and wife, the G.I. Joe star bent Dewan back and kissed her over his knee to cheers from the approving crowd.

Jenna Dewan, 28, and Channing Tatum, 29, met on the set of their 2006 flick, Step Up. They got engaged last September. Congrats to the newlyweds!
