"In May 1985, Jackson’s emissaries abandoned talks for about a month. Meanwhile, another bidder suddenly emerged -- the team of Martin Bandier (now CEO of Sony/ATV) and Charles Koppelman, a veteran show business executive and investor who’s now chairman of Martha Stewart’s empire.
Their offer: $50 million … about $2 million more than Jackson’s.
Ironically, while Koppelman and Bandier had no idea that the world’s biggest megastar was in the running, Branca had sensitive intelligence on the rivals. He, for example, knew they were backed by MCA Music, then headed by Irving Azoff, now CEO of Live Nation. An old Branca acquaintance, the lawyer had hired Azoff in 1984 to help with the “Victory Tour,” Jackson’s last with his brothers.
So when Bandier and Koppelman thought they had the deal sewed up, Branca called on Azoff to pull his financing."
In the previous post I attached the link to a website that has been tracking "suspicious deaths" of Hollywood insiders who had a connection to Michael Jackson before his death. The site listed the murder of Ronni Chasen who was gunned down assassasin-style in Beverly Hills, while behind the wheel of her mercedes. Shot five times in the chest; and bearing all the resemblance of a professional hit; its forced many Angelenos to question the BHPD's conclusion that a lone convicted petty thief, on a bicycle, who has since, conveniently, committed suicide, was responsible for the murder. My curiosity led me to the attached website (thewrap.com) which has been running a multi-part story on MJ's tribulations since acquiring the infamous ATV music catalogue. The above quote is excerpted from part 3 of the story. The quote lead me to a search for Irving Azoff, whose wiki profile lists no mention of any connection to MJ or the Jacksons but lists as one of his clients Christina Aguilera, the star of the new film Burlesque, the very last movie after-party Ms Chasen attended. Its hard to imagine that Mr. Azoff didn't also attend this party; it is even harder to imagine that for a place as nepotistic as Hollywood, these two didn't know eachother. There are even reports that the Mercedes Ms Chasen was driving was not her own; whose was it, and why has the BHPD not been forthcoming with this information? Also why is the Chairman of Sony Pictures hosting the lone reception after Chasen's memorial? Did Ms Chasen like MJ venture into dangerous territory, and not being criminals, were ill-equiped to control and thus met with untimely deaths?
The Ronni Chasen-Michael Jackson connection?
