Debbie Rowe Sells Out Her Kids…Again


Michael Jackson’s children are pawns in a high-dollar game, and they are losing big-time. First, Grampaw Joe Jackson– who brutally abused Michael as a child, has announced he’s going to take Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket ON TOUR next year as “The Jackson 3.” Holy crap.

Clearly, this isn’t what Michael would have wanted, but as he named his mom Katherine as guardian- and she’s still married to Joe, keeping Grampaw’s money-grubbing paws away from the kids is next to impossible. Such is the decision-making prowess of a dude taking 40 Xanax a day…(plus a hell of a lot more.)

Now, to avoid a custody battle, Paris and Prince Michael’s mom Debbie Rowe has taken a $4 million dollar bribe to stay out of the way. Debbie sold the kids once already…for $16.5 million when she and Michael divorced, and now she’s cashing in on them again. God help those poor kids. Where’s Child Protective Services when you need them?!

Tony Romo Dumps Jessica Simpson


And he did it with such EXQUISITE timing! The day before her “Barbie and Ken” themed 29th birthday!! Way to get out of the gift dilemma AND the certain awkward pics, Tony. It’s hard to find those yee-haw milkmaid dresses that J. Simp seems to be enamored of, and, well…it looks like jewelry was out of the question.

Jessica, of course, is heartbroken. She and Romo have been dating since 2007, and her “concert” shoutouts to her Cowboy are legendary loads of Too Much Information. A snitch friend tells People that:

“She is heartbroken. She loves Tony. But it’s been difficult lately. He’s busy with his career and she’s getting ready to shoot her show. They decided to part ways.”

Papa Joe Simpson is officially getting the blame for the bust-up for his notorious meddling ways. Dallas Cowboy fans everywhere are PUMPED.

Morgan Freeman Wants To Marry His Granddaughter. Ew.


A sordid tale out of Hollywood today that should make Woody Allen look like a monk…72 year-old actor Morgan Freeman wants to marry his 27 year-old step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines, once his divorce is finalized. Reportedly the two have been carrying on an affair for 10 YEARS. Holy crap.

Freeman and his estranged wife Myrna, 68,raised E’Dena since she was a young child. A family insider says:

“Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her,” said a family insider. Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E’Dena’s goal.”

Morgan isn’t the only one who is a few fries short of a happy-meal…wife Myrna admits she and Morgan have not slept together for several years and they had an open marriage, both having other partners during the course of their marriage. Nonetheless, Morgan allegedly began having sex with E’Dena as a teen, and then the two continued a relationship after Myrna found out. Apparently this was the last straw.

Snarkista hopes her dear readers aren’t eating breakfast right now.

Even MORE interestingly, Snarkista shares her birthday with THESE people:
Tom Hanks
Courtney Love
Marlon Brando
Author Dean Koontz
OJ Simpson (yikes!)
Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr
Jack White (LOVE!)
Fred Savage
And… Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld! (The MAN!)
July 9th is also apparently Rock & Roll Day, Argentina’s Independence Day, and according to Best Week Ever July 9th is the most random Celeb Birthday ever! Snarkista agrees, and sees some crazy similarities with MOST of the people on this list! Best wishes to all of the water babies born today, and here’s hoping that Snarkista doesn’t get any appliances. Unless it’s that fab stainless grill she spotted.

Michael Jackson’s Kids Not Biologically His; Not Legally Adopted

Bombshell news is breaking tonight that Michael Jackson is NOT the biological father of his three children, nor were they legally adopted by him! Debbie Rowe, long thought to be the biological mother of Jackson’s oldest two children, was really just a surrogate mother who carried another woman’s eggs… fertilized by a father who was not Michael Jackson. Jackson’s youngest child was conceived by a different set of egg and sperm donors. TMZ is reporting that none of the three were ever legally adopted by Jackson.

This explosive news is sure to further complicate the already twisted legal consequences of the King of Pop’s death. He died with a 2002 will. We will update this story as more news becomes available.

Michael Jackson’s Drug Destruction

In what is a sad but familiar story in Hollywood, another star has likely lost his life due to a prescription drug overdose…facilitated by doctors who function as “drug ATMs” for their clients. Life & Style reports that Michael Jackson was taking a cocktail of up to seven prescription drugs in the months before his death. He allegedly overdosed on Thursday morning after a Demerol injection, causing respiratory and cardiac arrest.

A Jackson family lawyer told CNN he “feared” the drugs could kill the pop star. The star had been taking prescription painkillers including anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Zoloft and painkiller Demerol in recent months, according to sources close to Jackson.

Demerol is a powerful, morphine-like painkiller that is highly addictive. It is often reserved for hospital/surgery usage, but can be legally prescribed for pain. Why the Demerol injection? There are reports that Jackson had a broken bone in his leg, but was still rehearsing for his upcoming tour.

What is unclear is why his in-house physicians didn’t have (or use) reversal agents such as Narcan (for opiates like Demerol) and Flumazenil (for benzodiazepines like Xanax.) Jackson’s drug use was well-known, and, like Anna Nicole Smith, was facilitated by compliant health-care professionals.

The Sun is reporting that an emergency room source at UCLA Hospital said Jackson’s aides told medics he had collapsed after a Demerol injection. A Jackson source said: “Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing. His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.”

L.A. police would not confirm claims that Jackson had been administered the injection, but last night family spokesman Brian Oxman, alluded to “abuse of medications” while speaking to CNN minutes before Jackson’s death was confirmed.

Oxman confirmed Jackson’s leg injury, and said there were discussions that one day “he is going to be dead”. He went on to detail concerns about Michael’s drug use. He revealed that:

“This family has been trying for months and months and months to take care of Michael Jackson. I do not know the extent of medications he was taking but reports we are receiving from his family was that it was extensive.

“It is something that I feared and something that I warned about…it was something I warned people was going to happen and it has happened… there is no smoke without fire.

“It is a case of abuse of medications.”

Authorities have opened up an investigation into Jackson’s death. Was he another Anna Nicole? Snark Food will continue to update this tragic story as more details become available. TMZ’s coverage of the story is here.
