As the saga of Michael Jackson's death continues to unfold, the family attorney suspects that prescription drug abuse may have played a role and that he tried to warn his client several times.

In a chilling tribute to the King of Pop, a massive crowd gathered outside the gates of Michael Jackson's Holmby Hills home on Thursday evening (June 25).

Though his upcoming seven-month residency at the O2 arena is sure-to-be spectacular, it looks like fans will have to wait a little longer to see Michael Jackson return to the stage.
Concert producers AEG Live released a statement that said, "Due to the sheer magnitude of the This Is It concerts at the O2 Arena, promoters and producers AEG Live and Kenny Ortega, Michael's directorial partner and creative collaborator, have elected to move back a few of the opening shows in order to meet the challenges presented by such a massive and technically complex show.”
