Randy and Jermaine Jackson are trying to get at Michael Jackson's money, by hatching a sinister plot involving Katherine Jackson ... so claim sources connected with the Michael Jackson Estate.

Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Tito and Rebbie Jackson all signed a letter, demanding that the Executors of the MJ Estate step down, claiming the executors are failing so badly, the stress caused Katherine to suffer a stroke.

Sources connected with the Estate are now lashing back, telling TMZ they believe Randy and Jermaine (they are not including the others) are strapped for cash and know when Katherine dies there is no way they can get their hands on a penny of MJ's fortune -- that's because all of the money goes to charity and in trust for Michael's 3 kids.

Dendera dynasty lives on

The late music maestro - Simon 'Chopper' Chimbetu
NO music family in Zimbabwe has ever had the honour of being successfully equated to the famous Jacksons than the Chimbetu siblings. Many pundits continue to draw more similarities from the two
families’ music histories despite the fact that they live in different worlds.

Just like the Jacksons, — Jermaine, Jackie (real name Sigmund) Tito (real name Toriano), Marlon and Michael — the Chimbetus, through the late gifted composer, instrumentalist and singer Simon, have a music dynasty that spans decades.

Bev wows fans at dancing queens’ clash

Popular pole dancer Beverley Sibanda, aka Bev, wowed hundreds of fans with her raunchy routines at the City Sports Bar in Harare on Saturday night where she clashed with Bulawayo-based outfit Girls La Musica.

The vivacious pole dancer performed a raunchy and erotic lap dance on a male fan she called onto the stage during her weekend show. Wearing a revealing red outfit and fishnet stockings, the dancer aggressively pushed the man back before straddling him and thrusting her body over the bemused man.

And of course she did the bottle act but this time without the Castle Lager bottle. Delta Beverages, Zimbabwe’s beer manufacturer, has strongly objected to her use of their bottle in a controversial act. 
Bev has a history of highly-sexualised and provocative performances but took it to a whole new level during the “2 in 1 Clash of the Dancing Queens” at the City Sport Bar.

Beverly opens up on life, love

Beverley Sibanda
THE mere mention of her name conjures images of sensual, seductive and erotic dances — an affront of female dignity. In a world where dancing is assumed a vertical expression of horizontal desires, many men who flock to Beverly Sibanda’s shows are left drooling. What a pleasure manager!

At her shows, some sloshed fans are even heard shouting: “I won’t go home, home should follow me to where Bev will be.” Such is her magical touch.

But when you associate with her, you will be surprised to note that she has two contrasting characters. Explosive and mad on stage! Calm, cool and composed at home. Call it the idyll of separating work from leisure!
