Michael Jackson‘s immediate family will not be around this week for all the tributes that are about to take place.
As preparations occur at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for Saturday’s Jackson Family Foundation event, fans may be disappointed not to see the main players: Katherine Jackson and her grand kids.
I am told that Katherine has already left the L.A. area has headed to Michael’s birthplace in Gary, Indiana.
And Michael’s kids–Prince, Paris, and Blanket–will also be far removed from the circus planned across the street from their home in Encino, California. There was a plan to take them to London. They may also be somewhere else. But they’re not in California, trust me.
Meantime, Katherine Jackson‘s book publisher, Howard Mann, tells me he’s sold 25,000 copies of her book, “Never Can Say Goodbye,” since Monday. That’s quite an accomplishment. The book will be sold physically at the Bev Hilton event. Otherwise, it can only be obtained online.
But there are issues with that book, and possibly, Mrs. Jackson’s partnership. Stay tuned…
