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

So Paris Jackson Tweeted this morning, expressing gratitude that Katherine Jackson returned home after 10 days apart from the three children for whom she had been serving as legal guardian.
But the scandal surrounding this 82-year old, her extended disappearance and the alleged plot surrounding her children trying to change Michael Jackson’s will is far from over.
Prince Jackson actually got involved in the saga today, posting a text message from July 23 on Twitter today that reads: “This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TOMore >
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 >

Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars today, the longest possible prison term for involuntary manslaughter. Needless to say, Michael Jackson’s family is adamant that he deserves every day of that sentence, and then some.
His mother, Katherine Jackson, made that abundantly clear in recent weeks.
In Murray’s official Probation Report, Katherine lashes out at Murray for his documentary, in which he lays blame on Michael and denies any wrongdoing.
Katherine feels Murray’s four-year sentence is “insufficient.”
The report says, “During filming, he repeatedly stated that heMore >
In an interview conducted shortly before he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray says he doesn’t feel guilty about Michael Jackson dying.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” the cardiologist insists.
The Today Show aired portions of an intense sit-down interview with Murray that was conducted before the guilty verdict was reached by a jury earlier this week.
In it, he completely contradicts what he told police.
During the interview, Murray says he put Jackson to sleep that fateful day, then left the room to talk on the phone,More >
