If she had signed her legal rights away she would have had no claim to them whatsoever. Perhaps she would have been granted them if she went to court to have it reversed, but I'm not sure. I hope she kept in touch with them while they were growing up- if not this has to be so much harder on the children.

pretty much what I posted from people.com is what they are saying.

"She lost them, and then she got them back," Finsilver says. Finsilver said she spoke to Rowe on Thursday but she cannot say what Rowe plans to do. "She was inconsolable."

For many the Beatles will always be the best, others will say Elvis and there are those, right now, that put MJ at the top. Whether some of you want to beleive this or not, it is perception and opinion only. There is no way to say anyone is "the best" and expect everyone else to agree.

Answer: This thread.
Icons in their time, plus I believe the comment was about who would we miss when they were gone or who do we miss of those who have gone, not what they have in common...

You can go to people in China and ask who Elvis was they will know even though most were not alive when he was. Jack Benny people will be confused. Micheal Jackson will always be the same way.
you need to ask those who lived during the second world war and into the 60s and 70s about people like him. Of course no one in Japan would have a clue who is was or few would, we didn't have the media or the world travel that exists today. It is all relavent...

nope.
please.
he was an amazing performer (not my kinda thing but that's besides the point), dancer and a very creative guy.
let's distinguish that from a musical genius.
beatles = genius (though it's not a word i like to use when referring to great art or artists).
Stick with the boardwalk, the volleyball nets, and the surf boards, and leave musical talent judgments to us heavy-hitters. Michael Jackson far exceeds beatles or anyone else you care to line up....and don't you forget it either.

What a lot of people forget and what I admire about people in Michael's time and the people that came before him is that being a person of color you had to be more than just a singer, more than just a great dancer, you had to have more than just pure talent, you had to battle adversity on another level than what kids in the business have to face today. Just amazing what he was able to accomplish. He challenged many racial boundaries and many people did not see color with him. Just amazing.

So true, but such achievements are lost on some people who are clueless today.

I feel that his childhood was taken away from him though...

I just listened to the 911 call. What struck me was the fact that when the 911 operator asked where "he" was, the caller said "on the bed". The dispatcher then said to move him to the floor to perform CPR. The caller then stated there was a Dr. there and CPR was being performed...Wouldn't a doctor know to move him to the floor to perform CPR? That sounds very odd to me. Among all the other stuff but that seems pretty basic.
We said the same thing here when we heard that tonight. I think all these Hollywood type doctors should be held accountable for all their celebs meds. Until they start feeling the heat all these celebs dying from presciption drug over doses won't stop neither will their addictions.

If I go to a different doctor other than my family one they write me a script for something that will not work with something I am taking my pharmacy tells me and calls the doctor before filling it. How hard would that be for celebs?
