8:00 am
had ello, everyone. i'm ashleigh banfield. we have a very busy show ahead. the day's big stories and of course our take on daytime justice. let's start here. colorado it's never had a more destruct i have wildfire than the one torches the black forest. just look at the video coming into cnn. these flames have cost 379 families everything they own. their homes and their belongings have been reduced to piles of
8:01 am
smoldering ashes. despite the work to stop that, even more tragic, two people have now died, and they died before they could escape, actually in their garage trying to get in that are cars to leave, the flames have been that fast-moving. so far this one fire has nearly incinerated nearly 16,000 acres, roughly 25 square files. our dan simon is live in colorado springs, where he's been trying to follow the past of it and the progress. they're about to hold a news conference, but do we know the latest this morning so far, dan? >> yeah, i would have to say things are actually looking better. you almost feel like there's a momentum shift. i mean that in a good way. we're told the fire did not spread last night. it means that all the manpower they have on the ground, more than 700 firefighters, dumping water, dumping retardant, all of that is beginning to make a
8:02 am
difference, the fire did not advance. the thing is we are not out of the woods by any means. the thing is keeping the fire maintained, not letting it go into colorado springs, for instance. we feel like, or at least the firefighters are say there's a good shot of that happening. right now the winds are relatively minimal. it's a bit cooler today, so if firefighters are going to make good progress, today is a good day to do that. ashleigh? >> dan simon, thank you. he'll continue to break into our coverage just as soon as the news warrants. in the meantime one moment they're cheering on the miami heat in the nba finals on a deck, and the next moment, screaming and a collapse. this is the result. a deck collapsing at a restaurant right into south florida's biscayne bay. 24 people were hurt, three of them critically. our john zarrella is standing by. the night time view is
8:03 am
remarkable, the divers looking for people. and the daytime view is remarkable that anybody wasn't hurt worse. what's the story with why this happened? do we know anything more about it? >> reporter: ashleigh, you're absolutely right. when you look at it in the daylight, it is absolutely remarkable that this wasn't a much, much worse situation than what it ended up to be. part of the reason is the water here is very, very shallow, and it allowed for the rescue team. there's a rescue station -- to get here very, very quickly, get the people out of the water, as quickly as they did. the divers in the water, as you mentioned, but to answer your question more specifically, we've already had inspectors, structural engineers out on the coast guard patrol boat, out on a city police boat.
8:04 am
was it too many people? was it a structural failure? was it the environmental conditions? was it a combination? they just don't know. we've already been told it's likely to be some time before they really come to a conclusion, ashleigh? >> and at this point, are they speculating on call? have there been any complaints, building inspectors? or is it really just a big mystery? >> reporter: yeah, it is. it absolutely is a big mystery. certainly there are people going around already speculating about what it might have been, whether there were too many people, but quite frankly, a lot of people who frequent shuckers here say that on any big sporting event like the miami heat game last night, that dock is always packed with that many people. so whether it was just stress, strain, wear, tear, they're not speculating on that, but they are saying it's going to be a while. >> okay. john zarrella watching that for
8:05 am
us, he'll continue to report on it as we find out more on the cause. in the meantime, you can imagine there is a lot of guessing going on right now. i want to bring in our legal panel on this. brian kavatek and danny, let me begin with you. i did only just imagine at this point the lawsuits among all those families affected by this are being crafted as we speak. am i wrong? >> you're probably right, but in terms of looking at damages here, there probably aren't tremendous damages, there are no deaths, but you better believe there will be some kind of injuries that will be sued on. when it comes to liability, the landowners are on a duty, if you're spending money at their establishment, to inspect the premises. even defects not visible to the naked eye, if they could have been discovered with a reasonable inspection, any landowner is going to be on the hook. that's just the owner of the property. there may be additional layers of liability once we look at the contractors who were hired to
8:06 am
build, or whether they built negligently or whether they failed to build properly. >> brian, what about those whose job it is to inspect this for us? that would be the authorities who are actually with the city. does the liability extend to them if they've done all their inspections? >> generally speaking, when you have a governmental entity, somebody that works for the government or works for a city or municipality, they're going to be free from liability under certainly governmental immunities. so they're not going to have any responsibility. but you're going to have to look long and hard at the people who earn this place. they've got a heightened duty. this is a very serious time for them. they've got to be in crisis management right now. there may be criminal liability here. right now we have several people in critical condition. does alcohol play into this at all this this is a bar, a lot of
8:07 am
drinking going on, but i don't care if you're loaded or not, you don't expect the floor -- >> you're talking about contributory negligence. the law would ask if -- i don't think the law contemplates that as part of contributory negligence. that might be more in terms of doing something in the bar, maybe getting into a fight or slipping over an obvious danger. however, patrons, whether drinking or not, have an expectation that a landowner, the bar that they are spending their money at, what the law calls an invitee, they're owed the highest duty of care, the duty to inspect and make those premises safe. >> reasonability expectation of safety, you might call it. hold those thoughts for a moment, andf. thank you to all three of you. a couple other big news stories. we're looking for some daytime justice here. it is your solemn and your civic
8:08 am
du duty, jury duty. it's tough enough on the average case, but now potential jurors in the george zimmerman trial are being told they'll be sequestered, possibly up to a month. and the business of love when you're a billionaire. rupert murdoch is getting a divorce -- again. could his 11.2 billion empire could his 11.2 billion empire take a big
8:09 am
(woman vo) it takes him places he's always wanted to go. that's why we bought a subaru. (announcer) love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
8:10 am
8:11 am
8:12 am
here's the good news for them. originally that trial was supposed to be four to six weeks, now expected to be two to four weeks instead, so a wee bit shorter, but small consolation if you're the one that has to sit there. jean ka sarz is live in sanford, florida. it is her job to be sequestered essentially on these cases, so you'll be sitting there, too. it's a world of difference, moms of small children, single parents, that kind of thing, all of a sudden, doesn't it make it way tougher to seat that panel? >> reporter: it definitely changes the game plan. not only mothers that don't have care for their children, but maybe elderly parents or grandparents are being taken care of in the home. that means a constant overnight vigilance by the person that's supposed to be that juror. so they were told originally they might be sequestered, but then yesterday the judge
8:13 am
affirmatively issued that order that they would in fact be sequestered, but also two to four weeks, so i think the court will be working overtime, possibly even on saturday. it hasn't come down yesterday, but she does work on saturdays, so the jurors won't have to be away from home for that long. >> that's the other thing. i've seen variations on sequestration, and sometimes they get to go home on weekend, and sometimes they don't. what's the story on this one? have they got that far yet? >> she has not issued any time of particulars, but i'm sure you remember with the casey anthony jury. they were sequestered once a week their families could come and visit them, but a security officer from the court had to be present for any conversations. they could make phone calls once a week. i remember at the time, gee, it's like the jury is in jail, but this of course is a very high-profile trial, and they could be influenced by anything or anyone that wants to talk to them about it.
8:14 am
>> correct me if i'm wrong, don't they get a lifetime exemption? i hope you do. that casey anthony thing felt like six yeerks. it was several months, but it was very different on the jurors. they rendered a not guilty, and they took it on the chin for it after doing that service. let me know if they get a lifetime exemption. >> reporter: you have a good memory. judge perry did say that to the casey anthony jury. i remember that. >> you know, i have a herbal memory. it's just you. i hang on every word of yours. thank you, jean, live for us in sanford. still to come, a little daytime justice for you. that slap heard around the world, a tiger wife protecting her man. well, it was her man, anyway. rupert murdoch now has said see you later. he's filed for divorce. and we'll check in on another tiger, too, as this golf pro needs to make up some
8:15 am
ground. find out all about it, coming up.
8:16 am
8:17 am
8:18 am
father's day is sunday. don't forget. but golf great phil mickelson has already proven he is one great dad, because even with an early tee time yesterday at the u.s. open, he refused, just flat-out refused to skip hess daughter's eighth grade graduation all the in california. he went, flew overnight on the redeye to pennsylvania and teed off after only a bit of sleep. can i tell you something? if you pull those kinds of all-nighters, you get new york post headlines bike wonder-phil. our shane odonohue is at the u.s. open outside philadelphia on a sunnier day today. it's a great headline. is everybody so surprised that, given the circumstances, he was able to pull this off? >> reporter: not necessarily. i certainly wasn't surprised,
8:19 am
ashleigh. good morning to you. the thing about phil, one of his monikers is philly mick. here we are in philly, so maybe the "new york post" should take another lead from that post. the thing you shoul consider here is he as a g-7, or g-8. i'm not up on private aviation, but he has a bed of his own. he circumstance come navigates the globe on this. he is well known for this sort of circuitous travel. i was fortunate to speak to him on monday night at a very special dinner held be rolex, who sponsors our show on cnn international, so it was nice to be there. i went up to phil and had a work with him. he mentioned father's day. phil will be 43 on father's day. he's been runner-up on the u.s. open five times at this stage. that's a lot of pain for anyone to go through. he knows and understands what
8:20 am
the u.s. open is all the about more than anyone really. he really gets it. on a personal note, my son already 4 on father's day. and i said to him on monday, phil, you know i'm a big fan of yours -- >> can i borrow your g-8? >> yeah. that will come later, you know what i mean? >> by the way, shane, where do you get off thinking there's a g-8? the last time i checked into fleets available, there were only g-6s. maybe you travel in big circles. >> reporter: well, yeah. well, this is my ignorance with regard to private aviation. by the way, i love your spectacles. >> you're invited back any time. >> quick question before i let you go. i want to ask you about tiger. we want to talk about the real tiger woods. how is he doing? >> tiger woods is struggling a bit, though i think he's on for
8:21 am
a birdie. just getting under way in round 2. so six shots behind phil, but teaguer knows how to cope with adverse conditions. he's the most motivated and complete professional golfer we have ever seen. i have no fear for him, but he really wants to add to his three titles and make it number four. and this is the home of american golf. this is where all the history of the united states in golf, you know, has happened. so those two guys are very aware of that. it's a fascinating tournament. keep us posted. what a great assignment. we talked about tiger. here's another kind of tiger. one of the world's richest men says he's done with his teaguer wife. rupert murdoch filing for divorce. with wendy get anywhere near what some think she might?
8:22 am
it's 11.2 billion in that fortune. so let's talk geography and why that matters, after the break. dad. how did you get here?
8:23 am
i don't know. [ speaking in russian ] look, look, look... you probably want to get away as much as we do. with priceline express deals, you can get a fabulous hotel without bidding. think of the rubles you'll save. with one touch, fun in the sun. i like fun. well, that went exactly i as planned.. really? in parks across the country, families are coming together to play, stay active, and enjoy the outdoors. and for the last four summers, coca-cola has asked america to choose its favorite park through our coca-cola parks contest. winning parks can receive a grant of up to $100,000. part of our goal to inspire more than three million people to rediscover the joy of being active this summer.
8:24 am
see the difference all of us can make... together. hodoes your dog food have?s 30? 20? new purina one beyond has 9. the simplified purina one beyond.
8:25 am
learn more about these wholesome ingredients at the mayor of toronto, canada, rob ford, has commended the police in that city for doing a great job after a series of raids on apartments. what was it they were looking for in their raids? guns, drug evidence including a video that purportedly shows mayor ford smoking crack cocaine. this is weird, i know. "toronto star" newspaper reports that the police seized cell phones, guns, about 40 guns in fact and about $3 million worth of drugs, but did not get their hands on any video. an investigation into this alleged video has been going on for years. mayor ford told reporters that he has nothing to hide, yet very proud of 9 police for what they
8:26 am
were able to do and what they were able to get. it was a roe mantic twilight ceremony on board a beautiful yacht with charlotte church crooning in the background, but 14 years later and two kids later, rupert murdoch has filed for divorce from thinks third wife wendy dang. it was murdoch who filed, murdoch, not her. do you remember this part, when wendy was the one whacking a guy for throwing a pie at her husband during this controversy and hearing? yeah. stood by her man big time. our alina cho has all the details of this story. >> reporter: the marriage of rupert murdoch and wendy dang was a partnership in every sense of the word. he the chairman of news corps with holdings that includes fox news and "wall street journal," one of the richest men in the world. she, age 44, nearly half his
8:27 am
age, a glamorous third wife with a taste for high fashion and high-powered friends. but this is what made wendy internationally famous. 2011, smacking a protester who tried to throw a shaving cream pie at her husband as the media tycoon testified before britain's parliament about his newspaper's practice of phone hacking. the video went viral. now they're divorced, first reported by is front page -- this is them this happier times, talking to our piers morgan at this year as academy awards. >> how do you feel about cnn doing so well against fox at the moment. >> i think we're okay i want the murdochs met in 1997 at a news corp. party in the hong kong where the yale-educated wendy worked at "star tv." two years later the couple married on his yacht in new york
8:28 am
harbor. these two young daughters and all the benefits that come with being super-rich. no word on what wendy could walk away with, but murdoch worth $11.2 billion paid his last wife a reported 1.7 billion in what was billed as the most expensive divorce settlement in history. >> alina cho reporting for us. going by history, it seems like he may not be good at the business of love. he's got three wives, six children, all ranging in age from their 50s to their 40 u.s. all the way down to the youngest one, age 10. a bit weird, i know. it cost his $1.7 billion when he left his second wife. what do you suppose it might mean for wife number 3? i want to bring back our legal panel. okay. so before we even ask the question, i want to show you a couple things when it comes to
8:29 am
international law. rupert murdoch has houses everywhere and wives everywhere, so it might matter where they got married and where they live. let's start with the new york. in new york, prenup agreements are binding. when it comes to a crude asset, they get split 50/50, bud the judge has when you it comes to pre-marriage -- how about australia in rupert murdoch is from australia, has residences there. prenup agreements are binding also. accrued assets, again 50/50, but look at this bottom one, premarriage assets? yeah, they could be included in australia. so let's go to london. in london different there. prenup agreements nonbinding. that's not always good. accrued assets, judge has the discretion, and when it comes to
8:30 am
those premarriage assets again, may be included. so maybe england and wales not as favorable for rupert murdoch. maybe the reason they were married in new york, would he be saying i live in new york, i'm filing in new york. >> that would probably be tactically good for him. first, new york will hold that during equitable distribution that the property prior to the marriage will stay probably with rupert murdoch. however, if he does have a prenup, new york is very favorable to prenup agreements and has upheld many of these agreements, even when the couple doesn't really spend a lot of time in new york, so long as they contractually agree that new york would be the forum for that prenuptial agreement. >> when it says nonbinding, what does that mean? why would you bother ever signing a prenup if it's nonbinding? >> well action signing a prenup is certainly better than signing
8:31 am
nothing at all. at least you have something. remember we're talking about three aspects in a family law case, and family law of epic proportion, you have the property, but then you have spousal support and child support. you can't waivñ child support. you're not going to be able to do much with spousal support, so he's trying to control his property, but a binding agreement, whether it's binding or not, is going to give some guidance to the court with respect to dividing up a huge, huge estate. >> does it ever make a difference, danny, who files? in this case it's rupert murdoch who files. does that shape into the 340i7b factor. >> as long as at least one of the party was living in the jurisdiction, and every jurisdiction is different, but generally in new york city, as long as the marriage was there and there's at least one resident. however, again, when it comes to prenuptial agreement, those are
8:32 am
different than the lawses of equitable jurisdiction. is the parties entered willingingly. again in new york, even if its grossly unfair to one party, the courts have upheld they'll -- so long as there was no fraud or duress. >> so let's just assume. again, we don't know absolutely. there's been some reporting there's been a prenup. some reporting that it's unclear, but brian, if there isn't a prenup, how about all that accrued wealth. i think it's pretty safe to say that murdoch has probably earned tens of millions of his media, how do you judge the discretion when it comes to splitting the assets? >> well, the first thing you're going to want to look at with respect to any marital assets is what existed before the marriage and was there commingling? was there an intent by murdoch to put all of those assets into the state and have the whole estate at issue. so there is an argument that a
8:33 am
good lawyer, and i'm absolutely certain she's going to have a good lawyer representing her, is going to say that whole estate is up for grabs if there's no prenup. you would be surprised at the guys who don't get a prenup but should i want but guys like rupert murdoch? >> i've seen very wealthy guys who believe they are marrying for love and forever. >> love does make you a bit crazy as i've heard, anyway. >> i've heard that, too. >> thank you both. i appreciate your time. stick around. we've got a lot more daytime justice. here's one that you may not have heard yet. former governor of florida makes a by which for immigration reform. jeb bush saying that immigrants are good for the u.s. economy, because, quote, they are more fertile. i am not kidding. you're going to hear it for yourself. what does he really meant or what people don't care what he
8:34 am
meant or not, because the words were used? coming up. i'm thinking about china, brazil, india. the world's a big place. i want to be a part of it. ishares international etfs. emerging markets and single countries. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus, which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. theit's four times the sony 4k tv, it wasdetail of hd. my eyes. colors become richer. details become clearer. which for a filmmaker, changes everything. because now there are no more barriers between the world that i see and the ones i can show you. the sony 4k ultra hd tv.
8:35 am
8:36 am
jeb bush says the united states should pass immigration reform, because immigrants are, quote, an engine of economic prosperity. the former republican governor of florida was appearing in a conference, held by the faith and freedom coalition, but it's how we worded it that seems to
8:37 am
be making some waves. i want you to listen to the reasons that mr. bush believes immigrants are beneficial to the united states. >> immigrants create far more businesses than native-born americans over the last 120 years. immigrants are more fertile, and love families, they are more impact families and bring a younger population. >> so, as you can imagine, there is a lot of reaction. twitter, a lot of negative, but also mixed reaction. former governor said younger immigrant work forces would give the u.s. an edge over other countries that have more restrictive immigration policies. stay tuned for more. members of one iowa family owe their lives literally to some very tenacious firefighters. look at that child in the window in the torrential waters. this is in worth cow, two women and a girl finding themselves, their suv into a flooded ditch.
8:38 am
oh, sweet heart. they are all to safety through the windows into the waiting arms of their rescuers. thank got for them. just imagine being the firefighters to put your lives at risk like that. we also want to update you on a chemical explosion. it was breaking yesterday during our hour. a 29-year-old person was killed in that explosion. 79 people were hurt. this is from wasb, taken by a plant worker, where you can see the workers running from those flames and from the fireball. happy to say that that fire is now out, but it's still not clear what exactly caused that massive explosion. u.s. officials pretty concerned that nsa leaker edward snowden may be planning on a defection shun to china. experts say the chinese have
8:39 am
likely made contact with mr. snowden. they may already be telling him what to do, and we are,u.s. hearing that sin apour airlines has received an alert from britain, urging them not to let him on a flight to the uk. it is believed that snowden is hiding out in a safe house perhaps somewhere in hong kong. a lot of people are wondering how someone as young and inexperienced as edward snowden even gained access to such high-level information. cnn's seine asher says just the first level of security clearance requires a 127-page questionnaire. >> i'm not different than anybody else. i have no special skills. i'm just another guy. >> another guy with access to highly sensitive, classified information. >> anybody in positions with the access with the technical capabilities that i had could, you know, suck out secrets and pass them to the open market. >> reporter: to be in that
8:40 am
position, he would involved to undergo a thorough investigation before being hired. toward any kind of security clearance, they get much more -- >> this 127-page questionnaire is the first step in gaining access to all three levels of security clearance. confidential secrets and top secret lasts about your criminal and your employment history. it also asks whether or not you've ever illegally accessed a computer database and about your loyalty to the u.s. government. >> at higher levels, investigators may conduct background checks on close family members and examine public records going back a decade.
8:41 am
whether they are more or less likely to be a whistle-blower and to violate organizational norms and regulation. >> the defense human resource activity, a branch of the defense department, has noted seven different personality traits associated with espionage and betrayal, including risk-seeking impulsiveness and narsism. people tend to believe they can -- they don't have to conform to expectational -- >> the psychological evaluations and background checks are far from fail-safe. >> the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. in most careers, individuals come upon situations that they haven't been in before, so therefore it's very hard to extrapolate from past experience
8:42 am
what someone is going to do in the future. >> seine asher, cnn, new york. a ghost, a medium and a straitjacket. i'm not about to tell you a joke, just something very unusual. it is some of the testimony that the jury in the michael jackson trial is having to sift through. i can't make this stuff up. find out what they said right after this. we do whatever it takes to make your business our business. od. helping the world keep promises.
8:43 am
always go the extra mile. to treat my low testosterone, i did my research. my doctor and i went with axiron, the only underarm low t treatment. axiron can restore t levels to normal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness or irritation where applied, increased red blood cell count, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and increase in psa.
8:44 am
ask your doctor about the only underarm low t treatment, axiron.
8:45 am
for seven weeks now, seven, lawyers in los angeles have been battling over who is responsible for the death of michael jackson, and when it comes to that superstar, we have seen and heard just about everything. like michael jackson showing up for court in his jammies, like michael jackson dancing on an suv outside court remember the pictures. and then there was that lady outside of court again releasing doves at the time that michael jackson was acquitted? on child molestation charges? releasing doves? yeah. so today, if you can believe it, we may just be able to top all of that, because michael jackson's ghost showed up in court. this is funny, but it's true. i want to bring if my colleague don lemon. he covered the funeral and also reported on the cnn documentary
8:46 am
"michael jackson the final days." and i also want to mention or attorney brian cavatek represented michael jackson in the privacy case it's a bit convoluted, but michael was preparing to turn him/into authorities and all that went down. brian is not representing the family in the current laws, but he knows a thing or two about this case. let me start with, don. >> which case are we talking about? >> i know, you have a tough time, too. the w50erd thing is, there is testimony about the ghost of michael jackson talking to a medium and telling us all whether conrad murray was indeed >> you can't write this. it's lionel richie's ex-wife, okay? speaking to a medium, then
8:47 am
there's another e-mail with randy phillips, a former ceo of aeg saying i think it may explain michael jackson's death and may exonerate conrad murray, because she spoke to this medium. michael jackson came to her through the medium and said i was responsible, not conrad murray. >> i've a few things. >> and the judge allowed it. >> thank you. thank you. here are my issues. jump in here, brian. a, what? b, triple hearsay, because you have a guy on the stand talking about a medium who talked to a dead michael jackson, and those words are actually on the record. the judge, despite laughter in this courtroom, allowed that to stay on the report. what am i missing? >> well, i've got to tell you, first of all, when this trial started seven weeks ago, i thought this was a long, long shot for the plaintiffs and their lawyer, who i know very well. today i think the wheels have
8:48 am
completely come off the aeg bus. this is probably triple hearsay, but it's the kind of evidence that i would love to see come in if i represented the jackson family. it makes the people from aeg look crazy, and everything that's coming out in this case makes them look crazy. e-mails going back and forth, infighting, but you've got an e-mail here that refers to someone exonerating them. what it turns out to be is the medium who spoke to lionel richie's ex-wife who then spoke to phillips. it's classic triple hearsay, but it proves the underlying e-mail. in some respects it makes sense, but why if you represented aeg, why would you want that e-mail to come into evidence? why would you want any of the story to come? i have no understanding of what they're doing. i think they have completely lost control. >> well, and i think we started
8:49 am
seeing those wheels on the bus starting to come off during a lot of the depositions that have been played in open court. there's nothing more fun for a challenging attorney to be able to resurrect some deposition and give a little deposition when you're actually sitting on the stand and having to look at crierself in deposition. i want to play earlier deposition, and aeg financial officer beckerman talking about an e-mail he got. >> in this e-mail to you, it says trouble with m.j., big trouble. what are you guys up to tonight? do you see that? >> um-hmm. >> yes? >> yes, i do. >> do you know why it is -- what was your understanding of why mr. was informing you -- let me ask it this way, do you have an understanding of what he was talking about? >> no. >> and did you respond to mr. light wicky?
8:50 am
>> sure looks like it. do you want me to read what it says? >> sure. >> it says -- i figured something might be wrong given how jittery randy has been this week. >> yeah, you don't want to hear that. your own words. >> don lemon, i hear that and think point here, point there. generally speaking i'm a michael jackson fan. to have a businessman question is this jittery nerves or great a straight jacket because we need to recoup our money. it sounds so callous. >> here is what he's saying. he's not sure if during the time if he was referring to michael jackson or referring to randy phillips. randy phillips was so bad and out of it or was it michael jackson.
8:51 am
