He denied that Michael had Vitilgo ( Please visit TMZ website to read full graphic details of his Autopsy) He said Michael did not like Black People, hence his depigmentation and that is why his Children are not Black!!!!!
He was hoping when he wrote the book that Michael would be put in Jail for the last false molestation accusation, well it did not happen.
There are some far fetched details of Michael visiting a Witch Doctor and bathing in Blood of 47 Cows!!!!!. Loyalty is definitely not this man's watchwords. He also said Michael called Black People spabloos and hated them .. so how come he got to be employed by him.. He is Black as well.
This is one of the Old Brigade who despite working for Michael spent their lives envying him.
I do hope they both do not produce another Mudslinger or I will personally travel to
Africa to get my own "Baba" to cast a spell on them on Michael's behalf HAHAHA!!!
"Insults are the mud that Envy slings at us." Poor Michael with so called friends like this I do not think that I can fathom the Evil that his enemies are capable of doing!!!!!
It is a nasty mean book written by a person who should have been a Father figure to Michael. He wrote good things about Lisa Marie and not so nice things about Debbie.
Beware this man is a Rotterwieller and I would love to meet him. I will give him a piece of my mind.
I think that one sentence sums up this book perfectly - don't waste your time money or energy! It really is that bad... An inarticulate, negatively biased book written by a disgruntled ex-employee of Michael Jackson. I hope it was worth it for Bob because it sure isn't for any reader! Trust me - you really don't want to send any royalties to the author for this one!
It seems Bob Jones only wanted to make money from Michael Jacksons fame. It's really mean.
But instead, we get a series of unconnected anecdotes, with nothing to make us believe that any of this actually happened, or even WHEN it happened. And the Bob Jones who narrates this book comes across as petulant and upset with Jackson as a former boss.
Anyone doing an internet search can discover that Jones was fired by Jackson in the last year or two, and this knowledge simply enforces the impression that this book is a serious case of sour grapes and offers not the slightest insight into one of the most enigmatic personalities of our ages.
So, in a way, it simply adds to the enigma that is Michael Jackson. But if you want to actually learn anything about him, this is NOT the book for you.
Bob Jones has done his best here to paint jackson as dark as he can, yet at the end of the book I felt that Bob Jones was the nasty one, not Jackson.
The books a waste of time really. Just someone with an axe to grind with no evidence or justification for his twisted opinions.
