Janet riled over doctor

Janet Jackson blames Dr. Conrad Murray for her brother Michael’s death.

In an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts airing Wednesday night, the Grammy-winning singer says Dr. Murray should no longer be allowed to practice medicine, Associated Press reports.

Dr. Murray faces manslaughter charges for the pop star’s death this summer. Miranda Sevcik, a spokeswoman for the doctor, said Monday that he continues to maintain that he neither prescribed nor administered anything to Michael that should have killed him.

Ryan not in will

Farrah Fawcett not only cut longtime lover Ryan O’Neal out of her will but reportedly left a nice chunk of change to a secret ex-boyfriend, says the New York Daily News, citing a report from Radaronline.com

According to the Web site, the “Charlie’s Angels” star, who died of cancer in June at age 62, left the bulk of her estate ($4.5 million) to her son, Redmond, plus $500,000 each to her father and a nephew.

The will is said to exclude Mr. O’Neal, who was at Fawcett’s side during her last days. Fawcett instead reportedly bequeathed $100,000 to Greg Lott, a former Texas football player who has admitted to being the late actress’ secret lover. Mr. Lott, who has accused Mr. O’Neal of preventing him from seeing Fawcett while she was dying, told Britain’s Sunday Express that “this news that I am indeed in her will and Ryan is not raises some serious questions about why he prevented me from seeing the love of my life in her final months.”

Mr. O’Neal, co-producer of a controversial television documentary about the ‘70s icon’s final months, has described Mr. Lott as a “disgruntled ex-boyfriend from the sixties.” Also left out of the will was Fawcett’s close friend Alana Hamilton, another co-producer of the documentary, as well as Craig Nevius, a filmmaker who says he was thrown off the project by Mr. O’Neal.

Radaronline.com, which obtained a copy of the will, also reports that the actress’s last wish to die at home was not granted. Fawcett died in a hospital in Santa Monica, Calif.
