As the late Michael Jackson's brothers and sisters battle to have the executors of his estate overthrown, it has been revealed that this is not Randy Jackson's only legal battle. According to reports on, Randy owes Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza, the mother of his two children, $500,000 in child support.

The revelation thickens the plot as to why Randy is relentlessly battling estate's executors, John Branca and John McClain, for Michael's will which he and his siblings deem fraudulent. Oaziaza and Randy, 50, started dating when Randy was 25 years old and in that time she gave birth to Genevieve Katherine Jackson, 22.

Randy then married Eliza Shaffe without Alejandra's knowledge, who gave birth to his second child, Stevanna Jackson, 22, in 1990 but Shaffe and Jackson divorced in 1991. Randy then got back with Oaziaza who gave birth to his third child, Steven Randall Jackson, Jr, 20. However, their relationship ended when she got married to his older brother Jermaine. And they went on to have also have two children, Jaafar and Jermajesty.

Other reports on the website claim that Jermaine has also struggled to keep up with his payments, and both brothers had hoped money from the Thriller singer's estate would help them pay what they owed. But an inside said that their request was "shot down immediately". A source close to Randy told the website: "There's no reason why Randy should be so far behind on his child support payments. He shouldn't be a deadbeat dad."

But the insider continued: "But knowing how much Randy owes along with all this crazy drama surrounding Michael's estate, there's definitely reason to question his motives regarding the estate and Michael's will."

Oprah goes back to her roots on the cover of O magazine

For decades she has rocked several hairstyles and weaves during her long-spanning career as the world's most famous talk show host. But for the very first time, Oprah Winfrey has graced the cover of her self-titled O magazine, showing off her natural hair in all of its glory.

In the snap, the 58-year-old proudly models her curly tresses with a big smile. She also shows off her curves in a dress by Badgley Mischka paired with earrings by Alexis Bittar and a ring by Jordan Alexander.

Writing in the column 'What I Know For Sure' inside September's Makeover Issue, Oprah discusses her tresses and the role they play in the expression of 'self'.

The talk show icon, who often wears her hair naturally in her down time and on the weekends, reveals that she once nearly chopped it all off. "I wanted to wear it close-cropped a la Camille Cosby but her husband Bill (Cosby) convinced me otherwise," she explains.

Nicole Scherzinger turns heads...but not in a good way

She is rarely seen looking less than her glamorous self but Nicole Scherzinger hit a low note in a bizarre outfit last Thursday. The singer turned heads -- although not in a good way -- as she stepped out in an oversized purple tie dye kaftan dress.

The huge frock swamped the petite star and made for an unflattering look as she strolled around New York City. And the 34-year-old continued the too-big theme with her giant sunglasses. She also appeared to be sporting a pair of dark trousers underneath the dress, although due to the outfit's dramatic nature they just peeked out at the bottom. Nicole toted a khaki handbag and studded flip flops to complete her unusual ensemble.
