The latest supposed revelation regarding Michael Jackson comes in the form of an upcoming book, All That Glitters, whose author, Ray Chandler, is the uncle of the boy who accused the star of sexual molestation in 1993.

According to New York’s Daily News, Chandler’s 271-page book details the alleged seduction and molestation, which reputedly resulted in a $20 million settlement from Jackson. The alleged victim, now 24, has undergone extensive therapy in the intervening years to deal with his past, says Chandler, who adds: “Michael Jackson is the Devil in God’s clothes!”

Meanwhile, Jackson’s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, 44, tells TV’s Entertainment Tonight in a three-part interview scheduled to begin running Monday night that five years after divorcing the star she has had a complete makeover but fears she will never find true love.

“I don’t rule it out, but if you fall in love once – and if you’re lucky enough – it’s forever. I’m not one of the lucky ones,” she says, according to the New York Post.

Rowe is the mother of Jackson’s two eldest children: Prince Michael, 7, and Paris, 5. She tells the TV program that she signed a confidentiality agreement that prevents her from talking about her ex-husband or their children.

In professional news of Jackson, MTV reports that this fall he will release a five-disc anthology set, The Ultimate Collection, consisting of 57 singles, album tracks, rarities and previously unreleased recordings, as well as a live concert DVD. The box set is due Nov. 16.
