Jackson: 'My Money Comes From Cows'
Pop superstar Michael Jackson makes his money from the cattle on his Neverland ranch in California, according to court papers. The THRILLER singer is being sued by former associate F MARC SCHAFFEL for $3.8 million (GBP2.1 million). Schaffel claims Jackson owes him the money in unpaid loans and expenses. And, in a videotaped deposition, Jackson told Schaffel's lawyer his disposable income comes from the cows grazing at Neverland. Jackson denies he owes the cash, insisting Schaffel is a "professional swindler" who actually owes him money. His spokeswoman, Raymone K Bain, reveals the singer is not expected to testify in the Santa Monica trial, although he'll be seen in videotaped depositions. Jury selection begins next month (JUL06).
