Not wanting sister Janet to steal all the headlines – more Michael Jackson news yesterday as police confirmed that they had searched the home of one of Jacko’s business associates – one Marc Schaffel – as they continue to search for evidence to help their child abuse case against the singer.
Schaffel is something of a controversial figure himself mainly because of his history as a porn director and producer. His most high profile project with Jackson was that never-properly-released post-9/11 charity track Jackson organised called ‘What More Can I Give’. It was during that project that Schaffel’s porn career surfaced in the media – revelations that led the Jackson camp to officially distance themselves from the producer. But Jacko stayed in touch with Schaffel and it was the latter’s cameramen who – reportedly at Schaffel’s recommendation – filmed Martin Bashir when he was filming Jackson – footage of which was shown on the Jackson’s ‘I hate Martin Bashir’ show on Fox – ‘Take 2: The Interview They Didn’t Show You’.
Although neither Schaffel or police commented on the latest house search it is likely the authorities wanted to retrieve other ‘home videos’ filmed by Schaffel’s people at Jackson’s Neverland home.
