request for money to support his kids is knocked back HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed a secret in an interview with a gay magazine -- hes a Liberal Democrat. The actor, who turned 20 yesterday, confessed his party allegiance for the first time in the August edition of Attitude. Radcliffe, who appears on the publications cover, speaks of his disdain for Gordon Brown and David Cameron. But he praises Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, saying Labour and the Tories have nothing to offer young people. He said: I rather like Nick Clegg. At the next election I will almost certainly vote Lib-Dem. If all the people who liked them voted for them you could change politics overnight and we could have a proper three-party system. Radcliffe, now appearing in Harry Potter And The Half- Blood Prince, also tells of his hatred of homophobia. He says that while he is not gay, he grew up surrounded by gay friends of his parents. He said: I loathe homophobia. Its just thick people who cant get their heads around it and are scared.

Katherine Jackson argues she needs the money as she was financially dependant on the King of Pop when he was alive, according to legal papers. The 79-year-old said she also needs the money to support Jacksons three chil- dren, for whom she is caring. Jackson died four weeks ago but the cause of death, and location of the pro- posed burial site, remain a mystery. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff refused the request but will re-examine the matter next month. Jeryll S Cohen, a lawyer for the estate, said: We are informed that other than extremely modest social security ben- efits, Mrs Jackson has no independent means of support. He said there was an urgent need for the administrators to be authorised to make maintenance and support pay- ments for Michael Joseph Junior, 12, known as Prince Michael, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11, and Prince Michael II, seven, known as Blanket. Mrs Jackson and the children are the main beneficiaries of Jacksons estate, but require the approval of a judge to collect payments from it. Authorities in Texas have meanwhile released details of items seized from the Houston office and storage unit of the cardiologist who was with Jackson when he died in LA on 25 June. In raids on Wednesday, police removed items including a computer, two hard drives, 27 tablets of Phentermine -- a prescription-strength appetite suppres- sant -- and one tablet of clonazepam, an anti-anxiety medication. The officers were looking for evidence of the offence of manslaughter, according to court papers. At least two investigations are under way into the singers death.
