Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.
Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”
AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”
Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t getMore >

Hollywood’s most random feud has come to an end.
A few days after telling Vulture he’d rather his son never date Taylor Swift – before sarcastically praising the singer’s method of writing hit songs about ex-boyfriends – Michael J. Fox has reached out to the artist.
“Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good,” Swift Tweeted last night. “Thank you for having my back.”
That was all Taylor had to say on the subject, which is just the latest setback in what has been a rough start for her in 2013.
Already in the new year, Swift has been referred to asMore >
Michael Lohan may be the reason Lindsay Lohan is so messed up (or one of them anyway), but he’s no deadbeat dad, according to the mother of his 17-year-old love child.
Despite court documents proclaiming Michael is more than $300,000 behind on child support, Kristi Horn says she reached a private settlement out of court with MiLo.Michael Lohan, Love Child
Any outstanding support for Ashley Horn, 17, who was recently confirmed to be Mike’s daughter after years of legal back-and-forth, will be paid ASAP, Kristi claims.
She says this in spite of the fact that documents were justMore >
Police showed up at Lindsay Lohan’s Beverly Hills home yesterday after her deranged dad and others tried to stage an intervention to get her into rehab.
MiLo believes his daughter is off the wagon and that’s why she has (allegedly) become a no-show for post-production work on her upcoming movie The Canyons.
He told TMZ that Lindsay hangs out with “a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts” and that her entire team is on board with the intervention. Except …
LiLo was home when Michael Lohan and his people (it’s unclear exactly who he was with) arrived, but a guy claiming to be herMore >
Is Lindsay Lohan seeking a restraining order against her dad Michael Lohan?
Dina Lohan, Lindsay’s mom and Mike’s ex-wife, wants her to like yesterday.
Dina’s war with Michael – a nuclear situation that trumps last week’s fight with Lindsay – has reached scored earth proportions, and she’s urging Lindsay to take her side.
And to ask a judge for the protection order to stop her often-estranged father from having any contact with her whatsoever – phone calls, texts, emails, anything.

Surrounded by family, friends and more than a few famous guests, Michael Clarke Duncan was laid to rest in Los Angeles this week.
And while it was a somber occasion – with loved ones mourning the loss of an Oscar-nominated actor who died from respiratory failure brought on by a heart attack a couple weeks ago – for all who knew Duncan, Tom Hanks found a few moments of humor at the memorial service.
The star, who acted opposite Duncan in The Green Mile, shared a story about a young “Big Mike” and how his attempt to join a local gang was thwarted by his mother. It’s great, movingMore >
Missy Franklin and Michael Phelps, two U.S. standouts from the first week of the London Olympics, each leaped back in to the pool this afternoon in hopes of adding to their already-impressive medal count.
Did they succeed? NBC will air the races tonight, so stop reading now if you wish to be surprised on television…
YES! Both Franklin and Phelps took home even more Gold, leaving competitors far behind and leaving an even more indelible mark on these Games.
Franklin actually set a world record in the 200 meter backstroke, touching the wall in 2 minutes 4.06 seconds, a full second aheadMore >
Jermaine Jackson, one of the main players in the family revolt against the Michael Jackson Estate, has officially defected from the rebellion … mostly.
While he has “deep reservations” about their conduct, Jermaine is bowing out of official efforts to challenge the power of his late brother’s executors.
“I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the Estate, and which should never have gone public,” Jermaine Tweeted Wednesday.
“I still hold deep reservations about many issues involving the Estate,” he adds.
“I will continue to bring scrutiny and a resolute voice wherever weMore >
Well, this is no fun.
Billed as the biggest individual rivalry at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are being all… classy with each other. Don’t they know this is a competition?!?
Not long after Lochte won the Gold Medal in the 400 IM today, Phelps – who did not finish in the top three in that event for the first time since 2000 – sent a congratulatory Tweet to his countryman, writing:
Congrats to @ryanlochte … Way to keep that title in the country where it belongs!!
The winner then replied: Thanks @MichaelPhelps I couldn’t do it with out you. #USA

Katherine Jackson may have been found, but controversy and confusion continues to reign when it comes to the Jackson family these days.
TMZ sources confirm that L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Jackson compound in Calabasas today after family members reported some kind of disturbance.
A battery report was filed, but it’s unclear at the moment who was involved. No arrests were made.
Sheriff deputies have reportedly been keeping an eye on the family since April because a business associate of the family claims Katherine Jackson is being mistreated by certain relatives. ThisMore >
Michael Vick appeared on Pies Morgan Tonight yesterday and said he’d be interesting in adopting a new puppy for his children, telling the host:
“I can’t take that dream away from them. That’s selfish on my behalf.”
But the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) sees things very differently, releasing a statement in response and calling out the Eagles quarterback – who spent 19 months in prison for dogfighting – for even considering such an idea.
“Vick’s journey toward rehabilitation and redemption has not reflected any directMore >
Kate Major is reportedly pregnant with Michael Lohan’s baby, and all we have to say it:
The very-much-on/even-more-off couple has not officially been an item in months.
In fact, Major called the police on Lohan as recently as April, claiming he showed up at her place of work and refused to leave. Michael, however, asserted at the time that the twosome were actually shacking up… despite Kate actually having a restraining order against her supposed boyfriend.
The pregnancy, first reported by TMZ, appears to back up Michael’s account.
A rep for the couple confirmsMore >

June 25 is Michael Jackson’s death anniversary. The King of Pop died three years ago today at the age of 50 after suffering cardiac arrest at his home.
The coroner ruled it a homicide, and Dr. Conrad Murray, who was over-medicating MJ to a dangerous degree, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
Murray obviously did not mean to kill Jackson, but was nonetheless responsible for the fatal combination of sedatives that led to the singer’s demise.
Serving a four-year sentence, and complaining that he is wasting away in jail amid horrid conditions, Murray has been behind bars sinceMore >
