Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, with the best-selling album of all-time and more than a dozen massive hits. After years of physical...

Debbie Rowe is predictably engrossed in a war of words with Michael Jackson's brothers, claiming they are no talent hacks who sponged off of him.

Rowe pretty much expected Jermaine, Randy, Tito and Jackie to attack her when word got out that she's seeking guardianship of Paris and Prince.

But Michael's brothers came out swinging, claiming Debbie Rowe took Michael's money and then ran away from her children and her responsibilities.

Rowe bristles at that allegation, insisting she never abandoned her kids and that Michael constantly called her for parenting help, which she provided.

Oh, and she says Michael often told her that his only sibling with any talent was Janet Jackson, while the others turned sponging off him into an art form.

Rowe, who would also like to become Blanket's guardian even though she's not his biological mother, is deeply fearful that the kids have no supervision.

Debbie Rowe is ready to fight for guardianship of Michael Jackson's children, believing the Jackson family "isn't connected with the kids or their lives."

Rowe, the mother of Prince Michael and Paris Jackson, will seek custody of both, and would gladly care for their brother Blanket as well if she could.

According to insiders, Debbie Rowe is very concerned about the environment in the Jackson home, even though she genuinely likes Katherine Jackson.

The kids' grandmother is in her 80s and too old to serve as guardian, she feels, while Michael's brothers are around the three and are terrible influences.

As for co-guardian T.J. Jackson (Kim Kardashian's first love), Rowe likes him too, but is worried that he's on tour and away from the kids for long stretches.

Among other things, she's complained Prince has developed a filthy mouth and is rebellious because no one is even trying to keep him in line anymore.

The kid is not his son ... for real. Brandon Howard, the alleged secret love child of Michael Jackson, is no such thing. The DNA test results that say so are bogus.

The resemblance is uncanny, but the genetic link just isn't there.

Yesterday, claims that the 31-year-old is the spawn of MJ took the web by storm, especially after the so-called evidence was presented at a press conference.

Alki David of FilmOn (dot) com put on quite a spectacle Thursday, claiming he had a DNA test proving singer Brandon Howard is the biological son of MJ.

Claiming he got Jackson's DNA from an old dental device he bought at auction, he said he's "99.99999%" sure Brandon's parents are MJ and Miki Howard.

The timeline made sense, as did the circumstantial connection; Miki is a singer and actress who was managed by Michael's father Joe in the early '80s.

The DNA test is complete crap, though.

Is Miki Howard the real Billie Jean? The 53-year-old singer, actress and mother of Brandon Howard is rumored to be Michael Jackson's secret baby mama.

Organizers of a DNA test claimed on Thursday to have proven that Michael Jackson is the biological father of the younger Howard, a singer born in 1981.

Howard has long been rumored to be the child Jackson referenced in the 1982 hit single “Billie Jean” with the famous line: “The kid is not my son.”

Mother Miki Howard, was repped by Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson in the 1980s and appeared in the 1993 movie Poetic Justice with Janet Jackson.

Brandon does not have a birth certificate, but the genetic mystery reached its bizarre apex on Thursday at a press conference in Beverly Hills.

Organized by shipping heir Alki David and streamed live on his FilmOn (dot) com website, the alleged proof of the late King of Pop's paternity was revealed.

Brandon Howard wasn’t present for the hyped announcement but confirmed in a Facebook post that he gave a DNA sample for the test to be conducted.

So, Brandon Howard says he is Michael Jackson's secret son. He claims he has, and will reveal, hard DNA evidence to prove this bombshell claim as well.

The 31-year-old is the son of Miki Howard, who Michael's father Joe Jackson used to represent back in the '80s. So he does have history with the family.

Brandon claims that Michael Jackson met his mother, Miki, in 1982 and got her pregnant fairly quickly. He certainly didn't come forward quickly, however.

Why now?

Brandon Howard claims that he’s only recently acquired the DNA evidence, which he purports to be from an old orthodontic device Michael used to wear.

We can't imagine how he came across that, nor do we want to know, but he insists the DNA test results are a match, and he will reveal the results today.

At FilmOn (dot) com.

That doesn't reek of a gigantic publicity stunt or anything. Not that he necessarily cares as long as he gets his 15 minutes of fame with this Hail Mary pass.

Wade Robson is not backing off his crusade against the Michael Jackson Estate, demanding to see alleged evidence that the singer molested others.

  • Wade Robson and Michael Jackson

The choreographer, who claims he was repeatedly molested by Michael Jackson as a child, wants to take the late pop legend's estate to court over it.

Wade is seeking damages for the trauma and suffering he endured, even though in 2005, he defended MJ adamantly at the star's criminal molestation trial.

Now he's saying that was all the result of brainwashing, however, and wants the Estate to cough up any evidence they have of Michael molesting boys.

Robson, who officially filed a claim with the Estate last year asking for money as a result of allegedly being molested from ages 7-14, is demanding:

Is Bruce Jenner suffering from the same dangerous addiction to plastic surgery that Michael Jackson infamously fell victim to over his troubled existence?

According to family sources cited by TMZ today, you bet.

He's not changing his identity, just in the midst of a severe mid-life crisis and is becoming addicted to plastic surgery, to the chagrin of the Jenner and Kardashian families.

  • Happy Bruce Jenner
  • The Late King of Pop

There are rumors that Bruce's escalating interest in surgery - most recently getting his Adam's Apple removed - is part of a plan for gender reassignment.

The family isn't buying the Bruce Jenner sex change rumor, but fears his new look is part of an ongoing, "Michael Jackson-like obsession with plastic surgery."  

They say Bruce, 64, is struggling to regain his youth.

After being married to Kris Jenner and having the life sucked out of you for over two decades, you can understand that to a point ... but is he going too far?

Celebrities love plastic surgery. Although in many cases, they probably should have just loved their original appearance more before they got work done.

There are always exceptions, and some stars certainly go more overboard than others. Not everyone is Heidi Montag (thankfully). But by and large?

Plastic is not as fantastic as it seems, people.

Desiring to appear younger, hotter or tighter - whatever you want to call it - is human nature. Getting surgery to make you look like a wax figure of yourself?

Not so much. Not so much at all.

Behold, 25 examples of celebrities who went under the knife in hopes of improving their bodily appearance ... often with unintended, downright scary results:

For the first time since his arrest in Miami early yesterday morning, Justin Bieber has spoken out.

And managed to sound both confusing and totally pompous in the process.

The 19-year old artist took to Instagram this afternoon and posted a photo of himself sitting atop a car moments after he made bail and left prison.

He then posted a picture of Michael Jackson making a similar gesture alongside it and wrote as a caption:

"What more can they say."

Ummm... we have no idea, Justin. What more can they say?
