Troubled superstar Michael Jackson is so confident he'll be cleared of all child molestation charges, he has booked a trip to London this summer. Jackson's close pal, psychic Uri Geller, is standing by his famous friend as he fights 10 felony charges of child molestation, administering an intoxicating agent and conspiracy involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion in a Santa Maria, California, court. Speaking on British TV network Channel 4's chat show Richard & Judy on Thursday, the spoon-bending eccentric said the Bad singer has already booked a flight to a British wedding, because he's convinced jurors will acquit him. Geller says, "Michael is confident he will be found innocent. "He's actually planning to come to London this summer. He's booked the flights and the hotel already.

Ben and Jen Will Keep Wedding Secret
Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck has vowed he will marry Jennifer Lopez, and he's not telling anyone when. Insisting media "frenzy", and not a rift, were behind the cancellation of last September's ceremony, the actor insists when plans are in place for the showbiz wedding of the decade, both he and J.Lo will be keeping their mouths firmly shut. Speaking on British talk show Richard & Judy last night, Affleck said, "There actually is no date and if there were one I would probably not be very wise to share it." Off the original nuptials, he adds, "It was cancelled for a variety of reasons, most of them have to do with the fact that it seemed it was a period of time that was just too frantic. It just seemed like, here we are, we're two people, we can do this whenever we want. We certainly don't need to feed into what had become an escalating frenzy beyond our control and that was clearly going to turn into something unpleasant. So why not take our time with it?" Neither one of us was in any great hurry to do the thing. It's not as if we were waiting to sleep together, for example, which would probably put a certain kind of urgency to the matter." Affleck has also paid tribute to Lopez, for helping keep the couple together through tough times. He tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror today, "I feel really lucky to have such an amazing fiancee. She is a very grounded person and no matter what people write about us, they are always 10 times harder on her. But we are strong together."
