It is being reported in the British music news that guru Deoki Nandan Shastri called Michael Jackson to offer advice, and that the one with the (allegedly) wandering glove actually called him back.
Shastri then went and told US tabloid The Globe, and now we know about it too.
Bravo to Mr. Shastri for showing a cunning that makes Lizzie Grubman look like a preschooler at a fairy princess party, capitializing on both Mr. Jackson's fame and his darkest hour at the same time. It must have been just that sort of forward thinking that has landed him as a guru to the stars in the first place, despite the seemingly egregious violation of MJ's confidence. Or perhaps it was in the service of Mr. Jackson. Or, does it really even matter?
