Most people out there didn’t necessarily keep track of the anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson but it was 4 years ago today that Jackson died of an overdose of Propofol. The doctor who administered the drug is currently in jail. However, legions of hardcore MJ fans did not forget today.
In fact some of his larger fans left thousands upon thousands of flowers outside of his mausoleum today. One group alone called “One Rose for Michael Jackson” donated over 10,000 roses. Folks from the Forest Lawn Cemetery where Jackson is buried have said that they will allow fans to place flowers for the rest of the day.
Despite Jackson being deceased his legacy and living heirs are very much alive today. His daughter Paris has recently been in the news for having tried to kill herself. His son Prince is also now in the news because he is set to testify about his father’s death.
While we want to remember Jackson for his amazing musical run that started with the Jackson Five and ended with him as a solo artist, it was a career that in the later years was tainted by child molestation accusations, charges, and arguments over his estate which still exist today.
