Michael Jackson to stop Jesus Juice wine
November 8, 2005, 12:30:49 Michael Jackson's lawyers are set to try and stop a couple producing a wine called 'Jesus Juice'.

The star's legal team are likely to investigate after 'CBS Evening News' producer Bruce Rheins and his wife, Dawn Westlake, applied to trademark the name.

'Jesus Juice' was the name Jackson allegedly gave to the wine he reportedly gave to the boy he was accused of abusing. .

Rheins - who was in charge of the CBS news coverage of the singer's trial, which saw Jackson cleared of all charges - recently submitted a 'Jesus Juice' logo to be copyrighted, which featured a man hanging on a crucifix, wearing Jackson's trademark fedora hat, sequinned glove and black loafers. .
The star's spokeswoman, Raymone Bains, said: "I fully expect that Mr. Jackson's lawyers will have an objectionable response".


However, Rheins and Westlake insist they were only producing a few bottles of 'Jesus Juice' for personal use. The newsman told America's New York Daily News newspaper: "My wife and I are hobby winemakers We made a few bottles for friends. We never wanted to sell it. We only trademarked it because we didn't want other people to try to make money off it.

"I apologise to anybody who is offended by this It was an irreverent idea that, in hindsight, I would discard - just like I'll probably discard those labels"

Even if Michael didn't voice any objections, that crap would never have gotten any further than it did.

Anything like that would most definately get slack. I can only imagine how MJ would feel seeing that, it puts him in a super negative light, even if he's not the one that portrayed Jesus like that.

He's lying through his damn teeth. You don't get a trademark for something you're going to just make for personal use. That's not why you get a trademark. And I guess we're supposed to believe that they trademarked the name so that no one else can try to profit off of it, huh? Whateva.
