Far be it for me not to allow the deceased to rest in peace, but The New York Post has just come out with a set of new allegations and first-hand observations regarding the late Michael Jackson that are so outrageous and disgusting that it’s hard to ignore them. Five of Jackson’s former maids agreed to be interviewed by the Post, and here were just a few of the revelations:
- “Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track . . . poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” said Maid #1. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.”
- Maid #2 recalled a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which the walls and floors of the Neverland Ranch were waxed, scrubbed, and power-washed to a pristine condition. But mere hours after the TV crew left, Michael had already undone the maids’ hard work: “He literally peed on the floor of the entryway, right where you saw Oprah walk in. It was surreal. He just stood there, unzipped his trousers and watered the floor,” she said.
- Maid #3 revealed that the dirty living conditions began shortly after the first time Michael was accused of molesting a young boy: “His whole life changed after 1993 when he had to pay that boy off. I’m telling you, he was the dirtiest, most unsanitary person in Hollywood.”
- According to Maid #2, “There were many times I had to sneak in and change his linen. I couldn’t understand how he’d sleep in such filth. There’d be socks and underpants in the bed and half-eaten chicken and potato chips, empty bottles of wine and whiskey on the floor. And you knew he wet himself — the place reeked.”
- Michael’s sleeping quarters once became infested with bedbugs, according to Maid #3. “He said, ‘Get them the hell out of here. Call the exterminator.’ He said we should do a better job, and he said he knew that we came from poor countries so we were used to bedbugs, but he couldn’t live with them. Sometimes we’d even get cleaning services to come in for the extra help. Everybody was repulsed. His bedroom smelled horrible. If everyone else was like me, they hated going in there.” The maids also described how bottles and cans would be tossed all throughout the house, and that Michael would engage in pillow-fights with young guests for hours on end, leaving feathers all over the floor and furniture.
- Michael was also a hoarder. Maid #1 recalled, “He’d keep all of these books that he never read, shirts, hats and other little trinkets that fans would give him, and they’d be in the dining room, the kitchen, all about the floors, and he’d complain if someone put them in a different place, and he’d complain if we didn’t pick them up. The amount of stuff he had could have covered that entire ranch, and most of it was junk that he refused to part with.”
- Maid #2 described the craziest items that Michael held onto: “I’d say there were two. A soiled baby’s diaper, and a pair of Fruit of the Loom that was obviously worn by someone who was either a teen or an early-age adult.”
Lovely stuff. I imagine we’ll be hearing revelations about this man’s filthy life for decades. Who knew he’d still be entertaining us from the grave?
