Funny - I find it a bit strange - to know that - Diana wasn't strong enough to attend Michael's memorial service. You see, when the so-called Diana Ross lost her father in 1997, it was reported that she gave one of the most emotional performance of her career during a concert. A concertgoer shared that her performance was “..very touching. Diana was close to tears throughout the show and at one point brought out her entire family on stage in celebration of her dad.” So - now that you've lost your dear friend, you're not strong enough to attend his memorial service? We're all aware that at a point in Michael's life, he lived with Diana and she held a responsibility in discovering "Tha Jackson Five". When Michael entered the music arena as a solo artist, Diana expected more from Michael. She wanted Michael to keep her on the charts -- at no cost. As Michael disagreed to Diana's advances, she attempted to turn his life into a living nightmare. The pain she caused was always done indirectly..as Michael would say, "...Diana's smiles were frowns turned upside down".
During the holiday weekend, Diana’s 20-year-son Evan Ross and his girlfriend were overheard discussing "Michael's Will" at Diddy’s Fourth of July White Party presented by Starbucks Ice-cream in Los Angeles. According to what they told friends, Ms. Ross had "no idea" Jackson had named her in the will and wasn’t too thrilled about being put in such a position of responsibility.
