As the World comes to term with the death of the legendary King of Pop Michael Jackson, Buckingham Palace rejected claims that JACKO'S death had been arranged by Prince Philip.
The 87 year old prince was reported to have been seen by witnesses scaling the walls of the LA mansion that Jacko was renting just before noon yesterday. Less than 20 mins later LA Paramedics received a 911 call saying that 50 year old Jackson had stopped breathing. Though paramedics and doctors performed CPR and administered oxygen he was pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Centre less than two hours later.
Yesterday, it emerged that Jacko who has spent the last month rehearsing in preparation for his 50 night concert tour at the London O2 Arena beginning next month, has been receiving death threats from the palace because of his association with Princess Diana. The princess who died in a Paris underpass in September 1997 is believed to have been the secret surrogate mother of Jacko's third child Prince Michael "Blanket" the second. Jacko's publicist would not reveal the nature of the threats Jacko had been receiving but they are reported to have something to do with a stick of celery and a balloon in the shape of a giraffe.
Meanwhile UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said in a statement that he was shocked and saddened to hear of the news of the Jacko's death. Paying tribute to the singer Mr Brown confirmed he had offered assistance to the USA emergency services "It is right that we should have helped him. We have taken the right measures that we did to help people just like him. If the USA had followed our lead in reducing the rate of VAT, I believe that Michael Jackson would still be here".
Meanwhile Buckingham Palace denied that Prince Philip was in America and could be linked to Jacko's death. The Palace reported that at the time that the 911 call was placed, the Prince was on his sandringham estate in Norfolk shooting children and peasants.
