Michael Jackson Wants To Save Neverland Ranch!

According to IMDB.com, Michael Jackson is planning to stop the Neverland Ranch auction. Reportedly, “he doesn't want his former home and fixtures and fittings to go under the hammer. A Jackson family insider insists the singer will avoid foreclosure on Neverland with a new loan, adding the auction won't happen”. Allegedly, Jackson is in the process of securing financing to save the Santa Barbara-area estate. Apparently, “there are plenty of lenders willing to work with him”.

Pamela Wants Out!

According to IMDB.com, Pamela Anderson wants to annul her marriage to Rick Salomon. Reportedly, Anderson filed court documents last week; she cited "fraud" as the cause for the split. Previously, Anderson filed for a divorce from Salomon in December, due to irreconcilable differences. What’s interesting is that the couple has only been married for about 5 months. I knew their relationship wouldn't last!

According to IMDB.com, Britney Spears is going to court to fight a ruling, which gave her father (Jamie Spears) control of her estate. Previously, “a judge granted her father Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet, temporary conservatorship - meaning they are in complete charge of Spears' medical, financial and legal affairs. Jamie even has the right to restrict people visiting the 26-year-old”. Apparently, “Spears' attorneys are expected to object to the amount of control which has been handed to her father”.

Winehouse Seeks U.S. Visa!

According to IMDB.com, Britney Spears stay at UCLA Medical Center has been extended for an additional two weeks. Apparently, Spears’ psychiatrist felt it was in her best interest to stay longer, than the initial 72-hour psychiatric hold. Reportedly, Spears “is not exactly a model patient…she created havoc in the Resnick Neuropsychiatric wing of the hospital on Friday night when she learned that her father had won temporary control of her legal and financial affairs following an emergency court hearing”. Hopefully, Spears will finally get the treatment that she desperately needs!
