In a statement issued Tuesday evening, Jackson decried all the self-appointed friends and spokesmen who took to the airwaves today in his defense. Some of those friends, as with most celebrity cases, are turning into paid consultants to various TV shows. Among those who’ve suddenly bobbed up on the air: Shmuley Boteach, the shamed rabbi who ran a shady charity with Jackson for a short time. The two have actually not been on any terms for more than a year. A Jackson insider, hearing that Boteach had started giving interviews, literally shrieked with horror: “I hate that guy. He’s not Michael’s friend. Someone should tell him to shut up, already.”Remember when Boteach made headlines in the Jewish media for bringing Jackson to the Carlebach Shul for Friday night davening?
