GELLER WINS APOLOGY OVER JACKSON SLUR
Paranormalist Uri Geller has accepted undisclosed damages, costs and an apology from the Belfast Telegraph over an allegation about his relationship with the late Michael Jackson.
The newspaper published an apology on February 9 which read: “In our edition dated August 11, 2009 we published an article under the headline ‘Surely Jacko’s friends are the real Wackos’ which may have wrongly inferred that Uri Geller had turned a blind eye to Michael Jackson’s drug problems and that he had failed the late singer as a friend.
“We acknowledge that Uri Geller has consistently stated that he never observed Michael Jackson take drugs and that he had supported his friend in every way practicable at the time. We are happy to make this clear and apologise to Uri Geller for any misunderstanding.”

“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.”
