“Michael Jackson lives on in the hearts of millions, not just for his unmatched talent and artistry but for his optimistic spirit of kindness, warmth and caring that is sorely missed today. In a world numbed by senseless acts of violence, hatred and needless suffering, we remember and honor Michael’s optimistic passion in spreading universal messages of peace, unity, healing and love to every part of the earth during the all-too brief time he was with us.

On this day, our thoughts and prayers are especially with Michael’s children and loved ones as we honor his legacy of compassion and determination that all of us can make a better world without hurt, fear and sorrow.” – The Estate of Michael Jackson

Message From The Estate Of Michael Jackson Regarding Sale Of Neverland

1428998583

Over the past week, the Estate has received inquiries from members of the fan community about the sale of Neverland. It has also been brought to the Estate’s attention that there are members of the fan community who intend to boycott future products until Neverland is in the possession of Michael’s children with the hope that this action will persuade the Executors to do something that they are powerless to do. As has been said in previous statements from the Estate, both to the media and to the fan community, the Estate is very disappointed over the decision by Colony Capital to sell Neverland. Unfortunately, that does not change the reality that it the Estate is not in a position to stop the sale of the property. As was also stated in a previous statement that we shared with you last July, under the terms of the agreement that Michael himself signed with Colony Capital, Colony has the right to sell. The statement continued:

UNFORTUNATELY, THE ESTATE HAS NO LEGAL STANDING IN THIS DECISION. The Estate will maintain Michael’s family home in Encino, including its iconic recording studio. We continue to build upon Michael’s legacy as an artistic genius and humanitarian through his music and new projects such as the Michael Jackson ONE show in Las Vegas.  We hope and trust that any new owners of Neverland will respect the historical importance and special nature of this wonderful property.  Michael’s memory lives on in the hearts of his fans worldwide.

No matter how many requests or notices of boycott the Estate receives, it cannot prevent the sale of Neverland, nor would it be fiscally responsible for the Estate to spend Michael’s children’s money on purchasing the property again.

The Estate is very saddened by the thought of the sale and hope that the fan community can understand and appreciate that the Executors worked with Colony to try to find an alternative to the sale of the property but were unsuccessful in doing so and Colony ultimately determined that it needed to proceed with the sale – something that they have the legal right to do.

Statement From The Estate Of Michael Jackson Regarding False Tabloid Reports

MJ-Stop-Filthy-Press

We have received a number of inquiries from the community regarding the most recent Stacy Brown story.  As many of you are aware, the Estate generally prefers not to legitimatize the lies and rumors spread in the media or expand the coverage by other media of those stories. However, the Estate has asked that we share with you the following statement that was issued by Howard Weitzman, attorney for the Estate of Michael Jackson, in a response to a request for comment yesterday:

“We are aware of recent false “reports” regarding Michael Jackson having, among other things, paid over $200 million to 20 “victims.”  There is not a shred of evidence to support these ludicrous “reports.”  It is unfortunate that, even in death, Michael cannot be free of these types of allegations, but we are confident that the truth will prevail in the end, just as it did in 2005 when a jury fully exonerated him.”

The Estate is steadfast in its defense of Michael in courts and that will not change regardless of what lies and rumors are spread by journalists with their own agendas.

From The Estate: Upgrades To MichaelJackson.com

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We are happy to share with you that there are upgrades to the MichaelJackson.com site coming soon that we think will make for an even better and smoother experience. The Estate and Sony Music have taken fan feedback into consideration and are excited to announce the following changes will occur in the next few weeks:

A faster-loading site across all devices
The developers have been working to ensure that the site remains robust while also allowing for the best experience for all visitors, regardless of whether they are using a computer or mobile device.

New, sleeker design
The new site will feature brighter accent and background colors to improve the graphic display as well as to make the text easier to read.

Facebook comments integration
Fans have previously been able to log into the website using their Facebook account, but now that functionality will be expanded to make integration throughout the site more seamless and allow easier participation in fan-to-fan communication, comments, and discussion threads. It will also integrate discussions with the rest of the content on the site more organically, rather than pushing them off to a separate forum section. As a result, the separate forum section will be eliminated from the website, so it is important that if you communicate with anyone solely through the website forums, you should reach out and exchange other contact information with them in order to stay in touch.

Fan art that has been previously submitted will still be available in the fan galleries, and users will no longer have to create an account to participate in discussions or submit original fan art.

The new site will be a significant improvement to the user experience on MichaelJackson.com, and we look forward to seeing you on the site!
