Bain apparently negotiated the 50-date string of concerts in London expected to bring in $400 million, of which her cut is 10%.
TMZ has her video statement, which she closes with kind words and “no regrets”.
Regarding Jackson’s media personae, Bain said in a Geraldo interview last year, “Don’t believe 90% of what you read because 9 times out of 10 it isn’t true.” Sort of begs the question, how much did Bain really help his image? Staying out of prison for molestation is a pretty big achievement, if she helped sway the court of public opinion.
A Washington Post profile from 2006 has by far the most detailed information on Bain and her career from the Carter administration to her deal to return to Jackson as GM.
