Rabbi Boteach did not have the best interests of the Charity in mind and I be-gan, on my own, to step up to show Boteach and others how the Charityshould be run to make it successful and to share my ideas.5.
I continued on my own to develop initiatives, plans, and economicplans, and I eventually met with Michael Jackson himself to share my ideas. Idid not ask for pay but continued to work on my ideas for the Charity with theidea of one day showing Michael Jackson what I could do if I were in charge of his Charity. I could see that the Charity at time was in deep trouble and fallingdormant.6.
In 2001, I had contacted Michael
s manager, Evvy Tavasci, byphone, who subsequently gave me her address details so that I could send myideas for the Charity along to Mr. Jackson, via MJJ Productions, Inc. In thatconversation, she agreed to keep confidential the information I would send her.7.
I explained to her that my information was proprietary and privateand that some of it was very personal and private. I gave her a copy of a bookof about 900 pages of ideas. I did not hear back from Ms. Tavasci. I attemptedto contact her to see if the book (bound and hefty printout with all the detailsof HTWF
s initiatives) was sent along to Jackson, and whether he had any in-terest in the material. If not, I asked her to send the material back to me (Isaid I would pay for the shipping). However, no communication came back,and I sent a few more letters asking for the return of the material or at least word that is was safe and its whereabouts.8.
After a long period with no reply, I became concerned about my pro-prietary writings that were now at large, including my private personal infor-mation. I soon realized that Jackson simply had gatekeepers who went to greatlengths to protect his privacy, and were not permitting material to get to him,
