The families of most criminals fight harder than anyone else to see his good side. "I know what he did to all those kids, but he could DANCE!Uh...just a second...what did he do again? THAT'S why he didn't have that money!" made up quote from when his family was so angry because he couldn't or wouldn't pay the rent on the family residence.
The real bitch of this is that he affected so many lives with his music that most people just looked past everything else. True, he had serious psychological problems and yet he was STILL allowed to have kids sleep over at Neverland? They used to dance in their underwear for him, and so did he. One kid whose parents were paid off did a few interviews before he paid them. The child was ill,they all were, and his parents took all the money, no trust fund.
Farrah Fawcett...she was beautiful, she was talented and she was the beginning of my body image crisis! Most beautiful woman I had ever seen at the age of 6, thank God I was shielded from her again until my teens but the world will miss her.
I also seem to remember a joke about a pill box he had with certain amounts of medication he had to take when a celebrity died to upstage them. Upstaging Farrah Fawcett in death!
Honestly, he knew at this point he would die poor. He may have also figured out that once a celebrity like him (or Elvis who btw sold less than him) died his music would sell like hotcakes! He may have done it in a last ditch attempt to pay off his debts and provide for his children.
