Mj said "i want people to know who i am after im gone"

Interesting interview with Dr Tohme:

http://www.exposay.com/v/31834/tito-jac ... ed-salary/

 — Dr. Tohme Tohme vividly remembers the first time he met with Michael Jackson to discuss the pop star’s finances. It’s not the money talk that stays with him now, but his enchantment at entering Jackson’s world of love.

“I saw how kind he was and what a wonderful human being,” Tohme said in an interview. “I saw him with his children and I had never seen a better father. … I decided to do what I could to help him.”

Tohme, a financier with a murky past, had been contacted by Jackson’s brother, Jermaine, who asked if Tohme could help to save Jackson’s beloved Neverland ranch from foreclosure. Tohme said he traveled with Jermaine to Las Vegas, where Jackson was living after years of wandering the world following his acquittal on child molestation charges.

They bonded instantly. “For the last year and a half I was the closest person to Michael Jackson,” Tohme said. He contacted Tom Barrack, the chairman of Colony Capital and a close personal friend. “He was hesitant to get involved, but I said, ‘Let’s go see Michael,’” Tohme recalled.

After the meeting he said Barrack, who was impressed with Jackson’s “intelligence and focus,” bought the note for Neverland. But that was just the beginning of a business relationship that culminated in the London concerts that were to have begun next week.

Wearing a suit with no tie, Tohme, Jackson’s last business manager and spokesperson, granted his first interview Friday to The Associated Press in the office of a lawyer friend.

Tohme, listed in public records as being in his late 50s, has been portrayed as something of a mystery man in the Jackson brain trust.

“I hate the words ‘mystery man,’” he said. “I’m a private man. A lot of people like the media and I don’t. I respect the privacy of other people but lately nobody respects mine.”

As he spoke, his cell phone rang constantly. He took only a few calls, one of them from Jesse Jackson.

He has been stung by allegations that he was involved with the Nation of Islam, which he said was untrue.

“I have nothing against anybody,” he said, “But I don’t know anyone from the Nation of Islam. When I took over Michael Jackson’s affairs, I fired some people from the Nation of Islam.”

It is known that he is of Lebanese descent. His double name — pronounced toh-MAY’ — is not uncommon in the Middle East. But he declined to go into detail about his own life and career other than to say he is a U.S. citizen who was raised in Los Angeles and, “I’m a self-made man. I’m in the world of finance.”

“I don’t want to talk about me,” he said. “I’m a nobody. I’m not important. I want to talk about Michael Jackson.”

At times he appeared on the verge of tears as he discussed Jackson’s death, saying, “It’s unbelievable … I’m devastated … God bless his soul.”

He said that by talking about Jackson, he was fulfilling one of the star’s wishes.

“He always said to me, ‘I want people to really know who I am after I’m gone.’”

He would only briefly discuss Jackson’s finances. During his time with the superstar, Tohme said, he was paid nothing but was able to negotiate lucrative business deals that would secure the future of Jackson’s children. He followed a long line of business managers and spokespeople who had come and gone from Jackson over the years. In the final year, he said he played a pivotal role in turning things around.

His negotiations for Jackson included a Broadway show with the Nederlander organization, an animated TV show based on “Thriller,” a line of clothing including “moonwalk shoes,” and more. He said he was working with others to renegotiate the terms of Jackson’s main assets, his share of the Sony-ATV Music Publishing Catalog — which includes music by the Beatles — and the catalog of Mijac, the company that controls Michael Jackson’s own music.

“I am not in the music business. I’m a stranger to this business,” Tohme said, noting that he had stiff competition from others who wanted to take over Jackson’s finances.

“I built a fence around Michael to keep people out,” he said, acknowledging that he cut costs by firing many members of the Jackson staff, including security guards. And he twice fired the children’s nanny, Grace Rawaramba, on Jackson’s orders.

“I was trying to do what we could to maximize his profits and minimize spending. I wanted to find a way to reel in all the loans he had.

“We had an agreement,” Tohme continued. “I would never interfere with his creative decisions and he wouldn’t interfere with my business decisions.”

Tohme said he abandoned everything he was doing in his own life to concentrate his time and effort on Jackson’s affairs. He points with pride to the crown jewel of his and the new Jackson team’s efforts: the contract with AEG for concerts at the 02 arena in London.

He said Jackson was looking forward to the concerts because he wanted his children to see him perform.

Like others before him, Tohme was caught up in the excitement of Jackson’s world. He traveled with him to London, where they saw the play “Oliver” and were mobbed by fans. “I had never seen fans who loved anyone so much and he loved them just as much,” Tohme said.

Tohme uses the title “Dr.” and apparently has a medical degree, though there is no record that he has practiced in the United States. He said he was convinced that Jackson was in perfect health the last time he saw him, two days before he died. He said the star kept himself and his children on a healthy diet, never ate red meat, didn’t drink and, as far as he knew, never took drugs.

He said he is disappointed that Jackson won’t be buried at Neverland but hopes that may change: “He deserves to be buried in the wonderful world he created.”

In Jackson’s final months, Tohme said they talked about his wish to create “a special place ten times bigger than Graceland” where fans could come to see Jackson’s memorabilia and awards. Jackson even talked about creating a veritable city for children.

“He wanted to be remembered as a great human being and he wanted to create as many happy places for the children of the world as he could,” said Tohme.

The day Jackson died, as Tohme rushed to the hospital unsure if his friend was alive or dead, he said he remembered precious moments: Jackson bringing his children to Tohme’s house for Thanksgiving dinner; Jackson and his children singing “Happy Birthday” to Tohme on the phone; the last time he saw Jackson at Staples Center, rehearsing for his big comeback.

And he remembered Jackson’s last words to him that day: “I love you.”

Some of the quotes are interesting:

“He wanted to be remembered as a great human being and he wanted to create as many happy places for the children of the world as he could,


Why would MJ be saying these things unless he KNEW he was leaving.

Ive heard Dr Klein say something similar when he said MJ said goodbye to everyone in his office the last time he was there.

And at the very last rehearsal he said to KO "Thanks. I can take it from here"

Its all very strange

Yes and isnt it interesting how Dr Tohme states he was PAID NOTHING DURING HIS TIME WITH MJ.

So...  what was in it for Tohme??   And Jermaine was the one who introduced them.

Its very strange and i think Dr Tohme is the key to all of this.  He is the reason.  

Where is he now???

Then in November 2009 Dr Tohme files a claim and states MJ "promised him a gross"
Why would MJ do that?

Im sure Dr Tohme is the key to this.  He holds a lot of the answers.

Y'know I am not sure the fact that Michael made people aware of the fact that he sacked Tohme and was scared of him is part of the hoax. Tohme has been involved with many things and seen with Jermaine after MJs "death". It just does not ring true to me. I think perhaps Tohme is in on it and it makes the death seem more believable. Think- if Michael led people to believe he had enemies it would make his mental state and reason for the drugs more believable. I do know that Mottola was his enemy and Michael stated as much in public but has never put down Tohme in a public speech. It just seems weird to me.

It was reported that:  at 11pm 25th June Michael Jackson’s manager, Dr Tohme Tohme, sacked all the staff in the house.

Yet if he was sacked why was he still there?  Why did he sack all the staff and why have none of these staff spoken out??  (are they being paid to keep quiet?)

This is the youtube video i found of MJ speaking out about Tohme

[youtube:1cq0vco0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw38AZEv4io[/youtube:1cq0vco0]

I cant find any links of Dr Tohme being sacked.  Can anyone send me a link to that?

Yes, it's been odd since the beginning ... :?

Thanks miss peppers for this article.. It confuses me though.
We won't know the truth about Tohme until Michael's come back (if he comes back of course). I don't have a good feeling about this man but maybe it's part of the hoax... IDK..

That is one of the things that just do not add up. Even more so, why firing them so quickly, why not wait untill the next day for instance.

If Michael was not declared dead untill 14:26, what justifies firing his staff at 11 pm already?

“For the last year and a half I was the closest person to Michael Jackson,” Tohme said.
Well DUH! He kept every body away from MJ! No wonder he was closest! And if they were such good friends, why did MJ do research on him? And why did he fire TT in may?

I'm not buying any of this.

I agree 100%.  It is all very strange.  I have always thought that it seems weird to me that MJ said at the O2 conference, This is it.  The final curtain call.  I have never heard the story about MJ saying goodbye to all the staff at Dr. Klein's office.  MJ knew that he was leaving.  Any other way, it does not make logical sense to me.  Piece by piece MJ's plan is being revealed.  God bless you for this information.

Someone like you to call mine

Why are there no reports on Thome? Why are the paparazzis so quiet?
Why is there no coverage like: "Today we have seen Dr. Thome Thome at (place xy). Thome is the adviser of late Michael Jackson, who .... bla bla bla."
Usually paparazzi are following everyone - so why not him?
The last time I saw him was when he followed the "death MJ" on the stretcher to the helicopter and I wondered why ... Why wasn't he accompanied by his family, by LaToya or Janet or Jermaine??
