Jackson in Major Dept
antiMusic reports: Michael Jackson may have to declare Neverland Ranch a sovereign nation as his spending habits seem to parallel that of a government. A forensic accountant testified for the prosecution in the Jackson molestation trial on Tuesday and said that Jackson was $285 million in debt at the time the damaging documentary "Living With Michael Jackson" aired.

Witnesses testified that there may have also been a plot to kidnap the family and fly them out of the country. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
