Jackson's Call Of Support For Ailing Reality Tv Star
Pop superstar Michael Jackson has lifted the spirits of dying British reality TV star Jade Goody, by taking time out to call her in hospital over the weekend (07-08Mar09).
Goody, who is dying of cancer, was asleep at London's Royal Marsden hospital when Jackson called - and was stunned to find a voicemail message from the King of Pop when she awoke.
Jackson learned of the 27 year old's plight from his brother Jermaine, who starred alongside Goody on British reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.
And the superstar, in London to announce a string of gigs in the capital this summer (09), chose to reach out with a few words of support.
Goody's publicist Max Clifford reveals, "He called to say, 'I'm thinking of you. Jermaine's told me all about you, and you are all over the media in America.'
"He said he hoped she could come and see the show while he is London. It was lovely."
Otherwise, it was a weekend of hospital drama for Goody - a hammer wielding woman was arrested on Sunday (08Mar09) after sneaking past security staff to confront her in her hospital room.
The "shaken" star screamed out for help and police were called. A 41-year-old woman was later released without charge.
Meanwhile, Goody and her two young sons were baptised in the hospital's chapel on Saturday (07Mar09).
