    Michael Jackson may be dead, but his legend lives on — and not always in a good way. One of Neverland’s former maids says that Jackson was one of the filthiest homeowners she ever worked for. The woman, who has only been identified as “Maid No. 1,” told The New York Post that Jackson would run around with his animals and not think twice about getting their fecal matter on his feet, and then tracking that throughout the house.
