Jackson Prosecutors Call On Bitter Ex-Confidant
The prosecution team in the Michael Jackson child molestation case hope to explode a number of secrets about the pop superstar after serving a subpoena to bitter ex-confidant BOB JONES.
Jones worked with Jackson and his family for over 20 years before he was sacked by Randy Jackson, without severance pay in 2003. Jones is now planning a tell-all book about working with the Jacksons.
The subpoena orders Jones to turn over to authorities all relevant files, diaries and photographs in his possession, as well as chapters of his in-progress book.
Jones travelled the world with Michael Jackson for decades and is believed to be the only top-ranking insider who never signed a confidentiality agreement.
A source close to the Jacksons says, "There's no gag order on Bob Jones. The family fears his book and obviously feel he has information that could be very damaging to Michael."
Jackson's trial starts on 31 January (05), he has pleaded not guilty to charges of child molestation, conspiracy and administering an intoxicating agent to his alleged victim.27/01/2005 02:40
