An Insider’s Letter About Michael Jackson’s women. THE PRICE OF A MISSING ENQUIRER
Recently a reader sent us a link to a source that sells old (back) issues of the National Enquirer. His idea is that the letter by Michael’s aide we’ve been lately analyzing could not be published on June 12, 2004 as there was no newspaper issue on that date. The reader implies that for this reason the letter cannot be authentic.
I absolutely disagree but am still thankful to the naysayer even despite his visibly negative motives. The links he has sent will help us to reach for the truth and this is all that matters in the long run.
Why will the links be helpful?
Because the gossip of National Enquirer is available in physical copies only and does not have an internet equivalent. However it was the internet version of the Enquirer’s message board where the insider’s letter was said to be found. I myself was unable to find traces of it and now that the naysayer has sent us some links we finally have proof that the letter was indeed placed on the internet version of this tabloid.
So my thanks go to Cole, though I am perfectly aware that he is no friend of us.
SUMMARY OF THE CASE
Those who know the story behind the Insider’s letter please skip this point while to all others I’ll explain what it’s all about.
On a date around April 15, 2004 the National Enquirer published a scandalous story about Michael Jackson and a certain Scott Thorson.
Scott Thorson was a man of forty five who was in exceptionally dire straits at that time, and this factor helped him to recover from the twenty years of amnesia and finally recall that back in early 80s he had had a two-day gay affair with MJ when they were in London.
Each was on his own business there – Scott Thorson was accompanying his lover Liberace to some event in London and Michael was writing Say-Say-Say with Paul McCartney. By now we know that they did briefly meet each other on a sort of a sightseeing trip as the rare picture I’ve accidentally found shows it.
Let us note that while Liberace, Scott and Lord Montagu accompanying them to his Beaulieu Motor Museum in the UK are having a lot of fun, Michael does not look happy in their company at all and could not be sitting at a bigger distance from Scott Thorson in that car. It looks like Michael is trying to avoid any physical contact with Thorson, and this alone heavily contradicts Thorson’s love story but confirms the insider’s account that Michael was very much “old school” and was utterly unhappy with Scott’s intentions towards him.
If you remember what a devout Jehovah’s Witness Michael was at the time (he read the bible even to prostitutes), you will understand the absurdity of the National Enquirer lies about Michael. But incredible as they were the public still half-believed them.
The Scott Thorson story broke out, coincidentally of course, at the time when the Arvizo scandal was in full swing and came exactly during the last week of the Grand jury deliberations which ended on April 21, 2004. The effect of Scott’s lies was that of a bombshell and under all that emotional pressure the Grand jury decided to indict Michael just to be on the safe side. Otherwise I cannot explain how they could go for the Arvizo utter nonsense that the boy was ‘molested’ after the whole world and police began eyeing Neverland with extreme suspicion following Bashir’s documentary.
Two months after the publication of Scott’s story and all the hysteria it was accompanied with, in June 2004 the Enquirer revealed a letter known to us now as a letter from a close Michael’s aide (go here for the text of the letter please), who was not working for Michael at that time, but was still in the know of his most intimate secrets.
The author laughed at the gullibility of the public, explained the real situation with Scott (he made passes at Michael and Michael told him to f*ck off, after which they parted for good) and stated that Michael was not only heterosexual but was also “thoroughly” heterosexual at that. To support his point with facts the insider listed some of Michael’s affairs with women.
Among other women the list included June Chandler. For us it is no surprise as we’ve known long ago that this woman managed to be some success with Michael and we were only waiting for a confirmation of the fact. This confirmation came from the insider in his message of June 12, 2004.
However now our naysayer says the letter could not be written on June 12th as the National Enquirer was published on the dates earlier and later than that.
CHECKING UP THE DATES
This is what he says:
Via a website regarding back issues (http://backissues.com/publications/National-Enquirer-2004) we see that the National Enquirer in 2004 always published weekly on Monday. The letters date is twice listed as “June 12, 2004″. However, June 12 in 2004 fell on a Saturday (http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/monthly.html?year=2004&month=6&country=1) — which is a weekend, making it impossible for them to have published anything on that date.
The first link takes us to a source that sells back issues of the National Enquirer. According to this source there was no June 12, 2004 issue of the paper – the National Enquirer went into publication only on the 7th and 14th of June.
True as it is this fact does not change anything for us. The Insider’s letter was not in the printed copy of the newspaper anyway – it was on the Enquirer internet message board where it could appear at any moment in time, even on the 12th of June.
The second link takes us to a place which we much desired to go to on our own. It is the Enquirer’s internet message board which is defunct now but the link has a captured picture of what it looked like back in 2004.
This picture alone is proof enough that the Enquirer’s internet forum page did exist at the time when the letter from Michael’s aide appeared there on June 12, 2004.
So we made sure that it was possible, and this is all we needed to know about it.
For the most inquisitive I will explain how the page was organized. Here is some of its text retyped:

The several visitors we see in the forum are the truth seekers like myself who cannot go any further than this page. Whenever we try to follow any of it links we face a disappointing notice saying:
“Wayback Machine doesn’t have that page archived. It doesn’t seem to be available on the live web, either. Want to search for all archived pages under …. link?”
I was willing to search as they suggested it but it brought me nowhere again. So the catched copy of the main page is all we have. Let’s see what it is about.
The message board is divided into subjects which in their turn are divided into topics. Topics are the articles in the earlier issues and since there are so many of them (2860 “in the headlines” section for example) it means that some stories are not forgotten and continue in the forum for months after their publication.
We may be sure the Scott Thorson topic was constantly in the discussion section and this is why a reply from our Insider came only on June 12. Evidently he could not stand it any longer. He was patient for two months after the story was released, but after facing all that gay hysteria for so long he could no longer hold himself and disclosed the heterosexual truth about Jackson.
Let us remember that like all other newspapers the National Enquirer needs some information about the people leaving their comments there. The information often varies depending on the paper’s confidentiality policy. The standard set asks for the author’s email address, real name and link to his Facebook account (if any). But some ask even for the physical address of the person.
What I mean is that there are always ways to trace back the author of the comment, especially for the National Enquirer team. They have their own staff of “investigators” who are willing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a salacious story to a true insider, and once they saw one they wouldn’t have lost their chance and grabbed him.
Remember the way the National Enquirer followed the Newt boys and their father, offering them $200,000 for saying that Michael Jackson molested the boys? This fact was discovered from the tapes the Enquirer journalist Jim Mitteager left after his death.
In case someone missed this highly enlightening story let me provide at least an excerpt from it in order to explain what kind of journalistic staff we are dealing with:
Former Protégé Vouches for Jacko
Thursday, April 07, 2005
By Roger Friedman
No matter who testifies next in Michael Jackson‘s alleged “prior acts” of sexual abuse mini-trial, the prosecution will have to deal with the fact that only one boy will show up to say he was molested many years ago by the pop star.
Now comes Robert Newt, 30, long a “Holy Grail” for The National Enquirer from its investigation into Jackson circa 1993.
Newt and his twin brother Ronald Newt Jr. (now deceased) were aspiring performers and spent two weeks as guests in the Jackson family home in Encino, Calif., around 1985. They were about 11 years old.
This all occurred before Neverland was completed. Michael, Janet Jackson and LaToya Jackson were all there, as well as the Jackson parents.
Fast-forward to December 1993. The National Enquirer, desperate to get a scoop that Jackson has abused children, heard that the Newt kids once spent time with Jackson.
The tabloid offered the Newts’ father, Ronald Newt Sr., $200,000 to say that something happened between his kids and Jackson.
Newt, a San Francisco “character” and filmmaker whose past includes pimping and jail time, considered the offer.
A contract was drawn up, signed by Enquirer editor David Perel. Enquirer reporter Jim Mitteager, who is also now deceased, met with Newt and his son at the Marriott hotel in downtown San Francisco.
It seemed that all systems were go. But the Newts declined the offer at the last minute.
Ron Newt Sr., to whom $200,000 would have seemed like the world on a silver platter, wrote “No good sucker” where his signature was supposed to go. The reason: Nothing ever happened between Jackson and the Newt boys.
Indeed, no kids, no matter how much money was dangled by the tabloids, ever showed up to trade stories of Jackson malfeasance for big lumps of cash after the first scandal broke in 1993.
“Maybe there aren’t any other kids,” a current Enquirer editor conceded.
I met Bobby Newt yesterday near the office where he works as a mortgage broker in suburban Los Angeles.
Just as his dad promised me a few days earlier, he’s a good-looking kid. He’s half black and half Chinese.
Robert and his twin brother were likely very cute kids. They have the same features as other boys advertised as alleged Neverland “victims.” But all Bobby Newt remembers of his encounter with Jackson is good times.
And all he remembers about the man from The National Enquirer is that he wanted Bobby, then 18, to lie.
“He said, ‘Say he grabbed you on the butt. Say he grabbed you and touched you in any kind of way,’” Newt said. “He told us he took all these people down. Now he was going to take Michael down. That he would really destroy him. He told us he took all these other famous people down. All the major people that had scandals against them. He said, ‘We take these people down. That’s what we do.’”
Prior to Bobby’s meeting with Mitteager, Bobby’s father met with him and brought along an intermediary, San Francisco politician, businessman and fellow jailbird Charlie Walker.
Walker is infamous in San Francisco circles for being “hooked up” to anything interesting cooking on the West Coast.
“My dad said these dudes are offering this money to take Michael Jackson down. And the guy [Mitteager] said, ‘Say he touched you. All you have to do is say it. But you might have to take the stand. You might have to go on ‘Oprah’ in front of all these people. You have to be prepared for this thing. Just say it. And we’ll give you money,’” Newt said.
Two pieces of evidence confirm the Newts’ story. One is the actual contract proffered by the Enquirer and signed by Perel, who declined to comment for this story.
The contract, written as a letter, says it’s an agreement between the tabloid and the Newts for their exclusive story regarding “your relationship with and knowledge of Michael Jackson, and his sexuality, your knowledge of Michael Jackson’s sexual contact and attempts at sexual contact with Robert Newt and others.”
Mitteager expected them to sign, even though it was completely untrue and there was, in fact, no story.
He knew you were lying, I reminded Bobby Newt.
“Exactly! And he didn’t care! He was like, ‘Just say it and we’ll give you the money.’ And I was like, ‘He [Jackson] never touched me!” Newt said. “He [Mitteager] was really fishing and really digging. Think about it — most people you say it to, ‘We’ll give you this money,’ even [if it's not true]. And they’d take it.”
Bobby Newt recalled more details of the 30-minute meeting with The National Enquirer’s reporter:
“He was trying to coach me — if I decided to take the money, what would happen. He said ‘You know, it’s going to be a huge scandal. You’ll probably have a lot of people not liking you. You’re going to be famous!’ But to me, you’d be ruined. And the truth is Michael didn’t do anything even close to trying to molest us.”
Ironically, the second piece of evidence also backs up the Newts’ story. Unbeknownst to them, they were taped by Mitteager.
As a footnote to all of this: In the small world of the Los Angeles music business, Bobby Newt recently worked with choreographer and alleged Jackson “victim” Wade Robson on tracks for his first album, a potential hit compendium of original R&B ballads.
Jackson’s former maid Blanca Francia implicated Robson in the case during Monday’s testimony. Robson is not testifying for the prosecution.
“Wade is straight as they come. He’s getting married. And nothing ever happened to him, either,” Newt said.
He shakes his head, thinking about those who have made claims against Jackson.
“You have to look at these people, go back and see when their relationship with Michael fractured. The calls stopped coming,” he said.
And Newt should know. After the adventure in 1985, the Newts never saw Jackson again. It didn’t bother them, Bobby says, as much as it might have others.
“They probably didn’t like it. And this is their way of getting back at him,” he said.

Frankly it is only now that I realize that in Scott Thorson’s and Newts’ cases one and the same tabloid newspaper was involved. When you don’t read them they look very much alike and you can’t really form an impression of the individual style. However now that we’ve made our acquaintance with the National Enquirer we have some idea about it.
I wonder why the National Enquirer investigators did not approach the author of the heterosexual letter about Michael. Probably they did and found the truth too boring to report. In this case they missed the opportunity of a life-time – Michael Jackson’s real life was no less sensational than that fictional Scott Thorson thing, with the only difference that the real sensations of Michael’s love life were true.
However I do not rule out that the National Enquirer did try to approach Michael’s aide but he flatly refused to cooperate with them. After seeing the covers of this newspaper and the manner of their work I won’t be surprised if he did.
THE MISSING ISSUES
The back issues available now show only the cover of the issues. My curiosity naturally led me to look for the cover of the issue published around April 15, 2004, when Scott Thorson’s story broke out. However over here a big surprise was awaiting me.
It turned out that the National Enquirer provides copies for all periods in the 80s, 90s, 2000s until today except the copies for the period of January-May 2004.
Here is a screen shot of the respective page selling their back issues for the year 2004. Everything is available on that site – issues for the previous year and the following year, but the period of January-May 2004 does not list a single of their publications:
And it isn’t that these issues are temporarily “out of stock” – they are simply never offered for sale.
The period of the missing newspapers miraculously coincides with filing of criminal charges against Jackson in December 2003 (and beginning of the Arvizo case) and finishing up with the Grand jury deliberations (March 29 – April 21, 2004) when the joint effort of the prosecution and media led to Michael’s indictment (which was a necessary step to a trial where Jackson was fully acquitted).
Given that these issues may potentially be the most popular (and profitable) ones it is surprising and intriguing that all of them were effectively erased from the public view, to be never seen again.
This mystery intrigued me so much that I spent two full days looking at the covers of the National Enquirer back issues offered for sale by various internet outlets. I’ve seen a lot, some of them pretty expensive (up to $220), however the ones I needed were nowhere to be found.
But since I regard even a negative result as a result too, let us make some conclusions from the mysterious lack of these issues:
- There must be a reason why the National Enquirer withdrew all those copies from sales. Shame for the old lies told about Jackson will probably be too much wishful thinking about a veteran like the National Enquirer, so this leaves us only with the version that they do not want to disgrace themselves any further by providing the direct proof of the blatant lies told about Jackson.
- A less exotic and a purely technical explanation for the lack of those issues will be that all those copies have long been seized by the people and are kept as a treasure trove for the time when they will be able to sell them at fabulous prices.
Well, if this is indeed the case let me give these people some tips as to the most valuable issues.
The issue containing Scott Thorson’s allegations will be considered by many as a valuable one. However there is a slight problem with dates there. While all the media screams about April 15, 2004 as the date of the original story our helpful naysayer says that in 2004 all issues were released on Monday only. And April 15 is Thursday. Moreover the stories published at the time said that the Enquirer would go on sale only on Friday, April 16 and in these circumstances it is difficult to say what precise date it really was.
Sorry if you waste your money on the wrong copy as a result of this purchase, however the story is so big trash that it would probably be better if you didn’t buy it all:
‘MY GAY AFFAIR WITH MICHAEL’
Published on: April 15, 2004
“I had gay sex with Michael Jackson!” Those are the shocking words of Liberace’s former lover Scott Thorson — the first person ever to give an on-the-record interview about a homosexual affair with Jackson.
And his revelations could prove crucial in Jackson’s child molestation case.
In the issue that goes on sale Friday, Thorson tells The ENQUIRER how he met Jackson in Las Vegas in 1979, began a gay affair with the singer in London and much more.
Another potentially very costly issue is the one which published the most intimate details of Michael Jackson’s sex with Lisa Marie Presley and the way she (allegedly) described it. I won’t provide the text of it as I don’t want to turn this blog into a kamasutra site and will limit myself only to the picture of the respective page.
You can go to the well-informed sources to read the text. They say that the issue was published on October 10, 1995:
To my surprise this copy still seems to be on sale, so for anyone wanting to invest in it let me provide the respective link to the offer. The cover is not displayed by the seller so people don’t know what secrets are kept inside it: http://backissues.com/issue/National-Enquirer-October-10-1995
The current price is $11,11 and only one copy is available.
But the most sought-after issue of the National Enquirer is the one that nobody has ever seen, read or kept in their hands. All we know of it is some vague description provided in a book. However despite our less than scarce knowledge about it many of Michael’s advocates will be simply dying to get hold of that issue.
Currently it is not in stock but there is still a slight chance that it will come up for sale one day and I hope that some of Michael’s advocates will be able to get it. This is why I won’t provide you with details of the exact issue and will send them out only to those of my trusted readers who will be ready to make an immediate order for it at the requested price of $11, 11. Having that copy is worth a thousand dollars to us and I am very much hopeful that one day we will be able to obtain it.
In the meantime here is some information about this issue. Ray Chandler described it as follows in his book:
Simultaneous with their return from Europe, the National Enquirer released a story that disturbed Evan greatly. While he was aware that any one hanging around with Michael would eventually appear in the tabloids this particular story was about Michael’s new family and described Jordie as if he was the singers adopted son.
The article was pure hype, but Evan feared that Jordie might now be a target for kidnappers or jealous fans. Michael had voiced his love for many children, all children, but never before had any one child been described as being that close to the superstar.
Knowing that Dave would share his concerns, Evan suggested he tell June to “stop yapping to her friends.” It was a sister of June’s closest friend who had sold the story to the Enquirer.
Two days later June called Evan to scold him for telling Dave she had a big mouth. No sooner had June finished with Evan when Dave called. If Evan was upset about the Enquirer article, Dave was livid. “That asshole [Michael] is destroying my business and my family!” he screamed into the phone. Dave told Evan he was getting calls from friends and business acquaintances expressing their sympathy for the loss of his family. He felt humiliated.
Dave also felt double-crossed. Before June left for Europe he gave her five thousand dollars and told her not to accept any gifts from Michael.
So David told her not to accept any gifts from Michael.
You’ve surely guessed that by the most coveted issue I mean the National Enquirer story about June Chandler, Michael Jackson, and the children after their visit to Monaco.
In that story the National Enquirer introduced the Chandlers as Michael’s new adopted family and evidently provided a thrilling account of that trip on the basis of what June first told to her friend, and then the sister of that friend sold to the tabloid.
The Monaco event was the first official outing of June Chandler Michael arranged for her and the children. Michael placed her immediately behind himself during the World Music Awards ceremony and took her children to the front row to sit next to Prince Albert. Afterwards he had them invited to the reception arranged by the royal family for the celebrities attending the World Music Awards ceremony.
After her staying so much in the limelight it was inevitable for the gossip tabloid like the National Enquirer to prick their ears in respect of June Chandler, especially if she was still wearing on her wrist the Cartier Love bracelet she had received from Michael in Las Vegas a month earlier.
It is only poor peasants like us who don’t know the symbolic meaning of the Cartier love bracelet and therefore totally overlooked its tale-telling meaning, while the trained hounds from the National Enquirer were sure to spot it the first time they saw June Chandler wearing it and realized how meaningful and screaming a love signal it was.
This is the first thing they notice when they look at celebrities at all.
I cannot believe that the first few times I was reading the piece from Ray Chandler’s book saying that David “told her not to accept any gifts from Michael”, I did not notice that David Schwartz, Evan Chandler and everyone else also noticed Michael Jackson’s gift of the Love bracelet and this is why David was so furious with his wife that he called her a “whore .
Imagine letting your wife going away for a few days and she comes back with a symbol of never-ending love on her hand given to her by another man. Even if she had it unlocked and did not show it to her legit husband, the picture of her wearing it seen on the cover of that tabloid newspaper was still sending the signal to the whole world, and this is how David Schwartz and all his friends most probably learned about the gift. Now I understand why his friends were calling David to express their compassion on the loss of his family – it must have been too evident from the National Enquirer story and pictures.
Later on the Enquirer will change their story about June Chandler’s visit to Monaco into an opposite one, but their initial version, retold to the tabloid by someone who had heard it from the ecstatic friend of no less ecstatic June Chandler, could be really a gem, helping us to shed much more light on the situation.
But why is the June Chandler issue of the National Enquirer is so rare a bird? So rare that no one has ever seen it?
WHERE IS THE STORY?
All sensational articles published in the National Enquirer never failed to be reprinted by hundreds of other media sources, in the same way they did it with Scott Thorson’s ludicrous lie. They surely did the same with the June Chandler story – at the time it was so well known that David Schwartz was bombarded by calls from his friends and business acquaintances. So they did see it.
But if everyone knew about the story then some traces of it should remain in the Internet now, and in no less degree than the Scott Thorson tale quite comparable to it in its scope?
In theory yes, however here another surprise is awaiting us – no matter how hard we look for the story of June Chandler’s trip to Monaco we will not be able to find a single trace of it. It looks as if never existed at all.
I know it for a fact because I wasted two full days of my life searching for it all over the Internet and had to come to a conclusion that someone had cleaned it with a broom or a fine-tooth comb with no single scrap of the story left there.
Its disappearance from the screens of our computers is complete, profound, absolute, unconditional and without fault. Not only is the story itself missing, but all its reprints have mysteriously disappeared too, and if if we hadn’t read Ray Chandler’s book none of us would have ever known that it ever existed at all.
Well, the further we go the more appreciative I grow of this book…. It is true that manuscripts don’t burn.
In the times of the so-called freedom of speech and claims of easy accessibility to information, the situation with disappearance of previously reported facts about Michael Jackson and the apparent media bias in favor of stories like his five minutes with Scott Thorson looks very strange indeed and smells of the agenda.
The agenda becomes all the more clear when you see sites like the one I saw yesterday. At first glance it was not that bad as it listed Michael Jackson among the greatest idols of the world and put him on a par with Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln and Leonardo da Vinci. The comparison of these people from the point of view of their influence on the world I fully agree with, but their description of Michael Jackson I absolutely do not.
It is simply incredible to portray Michael Jackson in the terms he is in that article.
Here is the full text of it.
Please note that it is a fresh view on Jackson as it was published only four months ago.
The authors of the “Most Famous People” site are shockingly selective:
September 16, 2012
Liberace’s adopted boy/plaything Scott Thorson told The National Enquirer in April 2004 that he and Michael Jackson had sex in 1979, and later pursued an affair in the early ’80s.
While much of the world expected a guilty verdict, in a high-profile trial Jackson was acquitted of child molestation charges on 13 June 2005, with the assistance of attorney Tom Mesereau. Santa BarbaraCounty district attorney Tom Sneddon’s case was very weak, particularly in that it brought the issue of the motives of the accuser’s mother into question. Bringing the first charge, that of child abduction, was an error of strategy that likely killed the entire case.
Died 25 June 2009 while under heavy sedation, a circumstance which led to the prosecution and conviction of Jackson’s personal physician, cardiologist Conrad Murray.
Well, this is all these people have to say about Michael.
Not only do they focus on the five minutes of Scott Thorson’s lies about Jackson as the domineering factor in Michael’s biography, but they also suggest that the non-guilty outcome of the trial was a mere technical mistake, a sort of an error of Sneddon’s strategy that ‘killed’ the entire case. So it is the ‘strategy’ and the ‘weak case’ of Tom Sneddon that killed it, but not Michael’s innocence, you see? And these people even seem to disappointed that the case was eventually “killed”…
So first they imply that there was nobody else in Michael’s life except Scott Thorson and this sends us to one group of the population which is interested in this kind of stories for putting Michael on their banner.
But then these people imply that Michael Jackson was not innocent in respect of children either, but despite this they still proclaim him to be one of the greatest idols of the world – and this very peculiar combination of thoughts sends us to another group of population which is even more specific than the first one in their perception of reality and way of living.
What is perfectly clear is that none of these people want the truth about Jackson. All of them are snatching him for themselves and using him as a banner for their own goals.
And when the truth contradicts their interests they fight the truth like no other.
Poor Michael, they used you inside out while you were alive, and they wouldn’t leave you alone even after your death.
What a disgusting world we are living in.
