The King of Pop would have celebrated his 60th birthday today (29 Aug)
The world was devastated at Michael Jackson's untimely death in 2009. Now, as fans across the globe celebrate what would have been the King of Pop's 60th birthday, it has been revealed the international superstar is earning more in death than he did in life.
Michael Jackson remains hugely popular almost ten years after his death
Despite a lifetime of iconic tracks including Thriller, Smooth Criminal and Bad, Michael claimed his three children - Prince, 21, Paris, 20 and Blanket, 16 - were living like "vagabonds" months before he died with debts of $500million [£388million].

Nicholas Lewis Stevens must stay 100 yards away from Jackson until another hearing on July 24th.
Paris Jackson has been awarded a temporary restraining order against a man accused of stalking the star.
The 20 year old singer, model and actress daughter of the late pop star Michael Jackson has won the temporary order against Nicholas Lewis Stevens, after he allegedly subjected Paris to a months-long campaign of disturbing behaviour.
According to TMZ, court documents claim that Stevens frequently visited the recording studio where Jackson was working throughout June, apparently on one occasion waiting for more than 15 hours for her to arrive, and also tweeting out that the two were “soul mates”.

The mastermind behind the Jackson 5 career died aged 89
There may have been little love lost between King of Pop Michael Jackson and his allegedly cruel father, Joe Jackson, but it seems Michael’s daughter, Paris, had her own unique relationship with the patriarch as she penned a touching tribute to her late grandfather following his death.
Paris Jackson paid a beautiful tribute to her late grandfather who died aged 89
Joe, the famously tough brains behind the hugely successful Jackson 5 and the even-more successful solo career of his fifth son, Michael, passed away earlier this week at the age of 89.
The 20 year old posted a shot of herself on Instagram removing the red graffiti.
Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris has been forced to scrub graffiti off of her late father’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after it was vandalised by an unknown perpetrator earlier this week.
The 20 year old, the second child and only daughter of the King of Pop’s second marriage to Debbie Rowe, posted a photo of herself scrubbing away red graffiti that somebody had sprayed across the star, which Jackson was awarded back in 1984.
“Some people have no f****** respect. I understand that there is a difference between the radio emblem and the record, but a name is a name.”

Apparently, it's becoming quite a problem.
It's not uncommon for celebrities to get upset about magazines retouching their photos to change their body shapes or remove imperfections, but Paris Jackson has found herself having to tell her social media followers to stop with their fan edits when it comes to changing the colour of her skin.

The 19-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe has politely requested her fans stop retouching her skintone after years of struggling to accept the colour that she is. As much as she enjoys the fan-art, it's less than flattering for her race to be digitally altered.

Is she as good as her late father?
It was always going to be a matter of time before Paris Jackson followed in her later father's footsteps and made her singing debut, and indeed she did so earlier this week when she joined her cousin Austin Brown on stage during his New York show.

The 19-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson showed her support for her 31-year-old cousin Austin Brown by turning up to his show at Soho House in New York City and singing along to an acoustic performance of his latest record 'Smile'. He shared a clip of the pair of them singing together on Instagram.

Photoshop or proof that the King of Pop lives on?
Michael Jackson fans believe they’ve found proof that the iconic singer is still alive after ‘spotting’ him in the background of one of his daughter Paris’ selfies. One fan even went so far as to make a video to share the ‘proof’ that Jackson isn't actually dead after all.
The two bodyguards who spent the last two-and-a-half years of Michael Jackson's life with him have come forward to tell their side of the story.
Michael Jackson’s bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, have written a book giving their account of the final years of Jackson’s life. The two men spent two-and-a-half years working for Jackson, even continuing out of loyalty once he could no longer afford to pay them. They insist that Jackson was a good father and a good man: “We worked for Mr Jackson. We didn’t work for the King of Pop. We got to see him as a man and a father. It was so good to see the side of him which was so in tune as a parent, from helping them with their homework and making sure they were eating right, to putting them to bed.”

They address the rumour that had dogged Jackson in the years leading up to his death and that has lingered since - that he was a paedophile. Both Whitfield and Beard deny that Jackson was sexually attracted to children, instead claiming he had two secret affairs with women. While they deny that Jackson was a paedophile, they do admit he was eccentric: “He was certainly eccentric…He would go into a store and buy everything. When we stayed in hotels he would buy thousands of books. At one point, he bought a whole bookstore.”
Michael Jackson's former wife has been told she has sarcoidosis - and not cancer.
Debbie Rowe, the former wife of the late pop star Michael Jackson, has announced that she is engaged to long-time friend Marc Schaffel. Rowe had two children with the late King of Pop, Paris, 16, and Michael Jr., 17, who were born before she and Jackson divorced in 1999.
Debbie Rowe Has Confirmed That She Is Engaged To Marc Schaffel.
Schaffel reportedly asked Rowe to marry him three weeks ago with a 3.55 carat diamond ring but the 55 year-old former nurse was reluctant because she thought that she had cancer. However, she was told on Wednesday by her doctors that she has sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disease that causes patches of swollen tissue to appear throughout the body. There is no known cure for the condition but unlike cancer it is not terribly life threatening.

Michael Jackson's ex-wife has appeared in court to testify at the AEG negligence trial. She discussed her relationship with her ex-husband; the impact of his death on their children and his use of anaesthetics.
Debbie Rowe, Michael Jackson's ex-wife, wept whilst standing as a witness in the AEG negligence trial. The trial is into its second day, the suit was filed by Michael Jackson's three children and his mother, Katherine. The suit claims AEG should pay compensation for hiring Dr Conrad Murray who, inadvertently, killed Michael Jackson in 2009. Concert promoters AEG allege that Jackson hired Conrad and that he frequently used anaesthetics.

Rowe married Michael Jackson in 1996 but the marriage only lasted three years. Rowe left their two children with Michael for three years following their divorce, a decision she claims she has no regrets about. She stated: "Michael wanted to be a father, I didn't sign on to be a mom. I loved him very much and still do. I wanted him to be a father, I wanted him to have everything that he didn't have growing up, wanted him to experience it with his own child, his own children."
