Star is too crocked

Michael Jackson's former publicist Arthur Phoenix has said that he thinks the star is in no physical or mental shape to be able to complete the planned 02 residency.

"I just don't see it happening. I think there were 10 shows planned and then ticket sales were overwhelming and another 40 concerts were added," said Phoenix.

“But Michael is not mentally, physically or spiritually ready for these shows. There's something missing in his soul. He's like Mike Tyson - it's over!

"There are family members who feel the same way but they're afraid to speak." Phoenix now represents Jackson's younger brother Tito, who would have made a lot of money had the Jackson 5 got back together.
