Controversial comedienne Joan Rivers has blasted model/actress Brooke Shields, accusing the beauty of exploiting Michael Jackson's death to boost her career.
Shields was one of the many celebrities to pay tribute to the King of Pop at his Los Angeles memorial in July (09).
The former Lipstick Jungle star fought back tears as she honoured her "little prince", recalling how much fun the pair had as teenage pals.
But her touching tribute has been savaged by Rivers, who claims Shields used Jackson's tragic death to her own advantage.
She tells TMZ.com, "I'd love to roast (mock) Brooke Shields. Michael's dearest friend. She hasn't seen him since 1993."
Shields - who has confessed she last saw Jackson in 1991 - landed her first major movie role in 10 years shortly after her appearance at Jackson's memorial, scoring a part in upcoming comedy Furry Vengeance.

it could be true since she hasn't seen him since 1991 it's a real shame that everybody treated this poor guy the way they did, when he was innocent about everything, now everybody tries to talk good about him including MS Rivers, but u know what ur all a bunch of hipocrites,I miss MJ it's been a month and a half and I'm still crying and I still can't except that he's gone.He needed more friends like his true fans somebody who would of helped him with his problem I can't beleave that for all this years nobody was able to do anything, now it's too late he died thinking that everybody thought that he was a child molester, I hope all the people that made himm miserable suffer in HELL.

I don't think Lionel Richie or Stevie Wonder released a new single or signed a new contract after their appearances. If someone decided to sign Brooke, than that was there decision. Why should she be penalized for accepting it or improper motives be implied? Just because people don't see each other for a long time does not mean that their are still not feelings between people especially with the past they had together. I don't think she'd use MJ's service for selfish reasons. It is true we may not have seen Brooke for awhile, but she was one of the person's I thought of when MJ died.
