A letter from Uri Geller’s lawyer to James Randi
Geller settles Jackson libel case
Uri Geller and Michael Jackson were close friends
Michael Jackson’s friend Uri Geller has settled a legal case over tabloid claims the pair wanted to use positive thinking to solve the credit crunch.
The Sun has issued an apology and full retraction, and agreed to donate to Geller’s charitable foundation, said Belfast-based libel lawyer Paul Tweed.
The Sun’s apology read: “We now accept that our story was without foundation.”
It said: “We wrongly reported that Uri Geller had collaborated with the late Michael Jackson on a recent project.”
Mr Geller consulted Mr Tweed, who has successfully represented him in previous libel cases, following an article published last December – six months before Jackson’s sudden death.

“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
