Statement From Michael Jackson Estate RE: New Album

Source: MJOnline, The Official Online Team of The Michael Jackson Estate™ /


Dear Fans:
We have received many emails regarding a Sky News story posted online stating that there is a new Michael Jackson album coming in April which will be available only on the Sony Xperia Z2. The story doesn’t contain any statement by the Estate or Epic Records. This is because The Estate and Sony Music have not announced any information about a new Michael Jackson album. If and when there is information to be shared, we will happily do so. In the meantime, please remember that the old adage “don’t believe everything you hear” applies equally well to what is posted on the Internet.

Estate Requests Cancelation of Autopsy Broadcast

Source: MJWN

estateMichael’s Jackson’s Estate has written a letter to UK broadcaster Channel 5, asking them not to air their programme ‘Michael Jackson’s Last Hours’, which is due to be aired tomorrow night, 7th Jan at 10pm.

Although it is not possible for the Estate to bring legal action to stop the broadcast of the program about the autopsy performed on Michael, the Executors want Michael’s fans to know that letters have been sent to the broadcaster and station owner expressing the Estate’s disgust at those who heartlessly work to profit from the most banal, salacious details of Michael’s death.

In part, the letter from John Branca and John McClain asks Channel 5 to show good taste and common decency by canceling Tuesday’s planned airing of Autopsy: Michael Jackson’s Last Hours. The letter also states: “Despite Channel 5’s cynical and disingenuous promotions claiming Autopsy ‘separates fact from fiction,’ it is nothing more than another sleazy tabloid program exploiting Michael’s tragic and untimely death…..Separating ‘fact from fiction,’ the Michael Jackson his friends and family knew was a loving father, a global entertainment icon and humanitarian devoted to making the world better. His children do not deserve to see their father’s death callously exploited out of greed because a new TV series desperately wants to attract viewers.”

The Executors share the fans hope that Channel 5 show the good judgment to cancel the broadcast of this distasteful program.

Michael Jackson was proud to call Nelson Mandela his friend. Like millions of admirers around the world Michael drew inspiration from President Mandela’s courage, his fight for human dignity and his commitment to peace.  During his visits to South Africa Michael met often with President Mandela, who described  Michael as “a close member of our family.” Our hearts go out to President Mandela’s family and to his beloved South Africans as they mourn their incalculable loss. – John Branca and John McClain, Co-Executors The Estate of Michael Jackson

MJ Estate Statement about Slave 2 The Rhythm (Updated)

Message From The Estate Of Michael Jackson Regarding Recent Tabloid Stories

Source: MJJ Community/QBee


We know many fans have been upset by recent tabloid stories in the UK about Michael. In his song “Tabloid Junkie” Michael Jackson sings: Just because you read it in a magazine or see it on a TV screen doesn’t make it factual.

Sadly, we were recently reminded of just how prophetic Michael’s lyrics were when these disgraceful, stale and discredited stories more than two decades old were published making unfounded allegations about Michael and so-called FBI “files.” It should be no surprise that one of the authors of this rehash has a long history of writing tabloid articles about Michael. It also should be noted that he formerly was a top editor at a scandal-ridden British tabloid that folded following revelations that the phones of celebrities, public figures and even a child murder victim were illegally hacked. Even more unseemly was one press account in which the tabloid’s source was identified as a former investigator whose license was revoked and who also has filed for bankruptcy. He isn’t denying that he was paid to tell these falsehoods, but he is boasting about his pornography career. It goes without saying that this callous and brazen disregard shown Michael’s children, family and fans is beyond reprehensible.

Responsible journalists who don’t practice checkbook journalism have thoroughly debunked this disgusting story and its unreliable sources. Showbiz411 titled its story: “ ‘FBI Files’ Are From People Discredited Long Time Ago” ( CNN called the London tabloid reports a “questionable” rehash while noting that, “A website can enjoy a sharp spike in traffic — which can translate into advertising revenue — with a sensational headline” ( in describing how media can play fast and loose with the truth to drive viewers or readers to their site.

We believe unethical tabloid journalists and publications spreading falsehoods about Michael for their own selfish reasons are best ignored. Sadly, they hide shamelessly behind a legal shield allowing them to smear those who are no longer with us. As readers abandon them and their businesses collapse, they desperately seek attention and publicity. We don’t believe they deserve it, and are confident that discredited articles such as these vanish quickly and are easily forgotten.

Rest assured that Michael’s legacy is his artistic genius. It’s his humanitarian work that touched millions, and his global messages of peace. Most important, Michael’s legacy is his enduring love for his children, his family and his fans.

Many of you have sent us articles this weekend about Michael, from the Mirror and other UK-based tabloid magazines. Here is the response from the Co-Executors of the Estate to the nonsense:

“As MJ said, just because you read it in a magazine does not make it factual…we personally detest these supposed news organizations that profit at Michael’s expense. We hope the fans can stay vigilant with us in protecting Michael’s legacy. We hope everyone has the opportunity to see the MJ ONE show…that’s the real Michael.”

Michael  Jackson  ONE  is  the  ultimate  loving  tribute  from  a  team  that  is  passionate  about  honoring  Michael’s  artistry  and  messages  of  love,  kindness and unity  that  are  as  relevant  and  powerful  today  as  ever.    Throughout  the  adventure  on  stage,  the  audience  is  treated  to  larger  than  life  images  of Michael  displayed  on  180°  screens  with  many  emotional  and  climatic  moments  –  for  both  the  cast  and  the  audience.    One  of  these  moments  comes  in the  form  of  an  illusion  that  brings  Michael’s  spirit  to  the  stage  itself  to  interact  with  the  cast  during  “Man  In  The  Mirror”  -‐  an  illusion  that  allows everyone  to  feel  Michael’s  energy  as  it  is  being  shared  with  those  on  the  stage  and  then  throughout  the  theater.    It  serves  to  remind  us  that  Michael remains  on  this  journey  in  all  of  our  hearts.  

Stage  shows  have  always  used  technology  to  create  illusions  that  entertain  in  new  and  different  ways  –  from  the  magician  sawing  a  woman in half  to the  illusionist  that  makes  a  building  disappear.  All  are  intended  to  create  the  ultimate  experience  for  the  audience.    Michael  is unique  and  technology can  never  duplicate  such  an  amazing  artist,  which  is  why  this  illusion  aims  only  to  evoke  the  incredible  energy  and spirit  of  a  special  man  in  a  way that  will  enhance  rather  than  compete  with  the  image  of  him  each  of  us  continues  to  carry  with  us.  As  the name  of  the  show  conveys  and  as  we  all know,  there  is  only  “ONE”  Michael  Jackson.

The  ultimate  goal  with  this  show  is  to  entertain  on  a  grand  scale  and  to  bring  new  Michael  Jackson  fans  to  the  community.”

MJ Estate Sends Statement To NBC Today Show

Source: IVY (MJJ Community)


“Mr. Robson has adamantly denied under oath and in numerous interviews over the past 20 years that Michael Jackson ever did anything inappropriate to him. Now he wants us to believe that he committed perjury at least twice and has been lying to anyone and everyone about Mr. Jackson since the early 1990s so he can file a claim for money. Mr. Robson’s transparent lawsuit comes nearly 4 years after Michael passed. His claim is outrageous and sad. ”

Statement From The Estate About Thriller’s Worldwide Record Sells

“We understand that loyal MJ fans are reacting to the article that appeared in the New Yorker questioning the sales of Michael’s “Thriller” album. Let’s state this for the record: “Thriller” has sold MORE THAN 100,000,000 ALBUMS WORLDWIDE. In addition, the number of singles sold cannot even be tallied. It is far and away the largest selling album in record industry history which, ironically, the same reporter noted in the December issue of the same magazine. Quite frankly, we are unaware of the credentials of the blogger in the New Yorker, and point out that it is his opinion only, and not based on the facts of the extraordinary 30-year sales history of Michael’s masterpiece.”

The Estate wants Michael’s fans to know that a number of items that were in the possession of Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins – currently part of the exhibition for Michael’s book, The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson – will NOT be sold in an upcoming December 2 auction.

Michael Bush agreed with the Estate that some of the most iconic pieces needed to be preserved as part of Michael’s legacy and, following the conclusion of the exhibition, they will be delivered to the Estate.

Bush made this announcement on his Facebook page on Wednesday:

“Friends, I have been profoundly touched by the outpouring of love and admiration for Michael Jackson that I have been able to witness during the launch of the book King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson. The book features the many fashions of Michael Jackson that I had the great pleasure of working on or creating during my almost 25 years of working with the greatest entertainer of all time. Although some of the items that Dennis and I have collected over the years will be auctioned by Julien’s Auctions on Sunday, December 2nd at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, I have decided to gift several of the costumes originally marked for auction to the Estate of Michael Jackson so that they can be preserved by the Estate as part of Michael’s legacy for many years to come. I recognize the historical significance of these costumes and even though some of them were personalized and gifted to me by Michael Jackson, I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to share these items with the fans with the recent exhibitions and some of the items are to be part of the permanent collection of the Estate.” – Michael Bush, fashion designer and author of The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson.

 Comments from Mr. Bush’s Facebook page

Question from Fan: “Michael Lee Bush is it possible to tell what items did you decide to gift to MJ Estate? Thanks”

Answer by Mr. Bush: “Michael Lee Bush Michael’s family wants to keep it private as of now”


Statement from Fan: “Mr. Bush: Have to say I was moved by your recent decision to gift a number of MJ’s garments to the Estate. Frankly, I love your book but was conflicted about the auction. I don’t care to see any of them dispersed, but your willingness to be receptive and change your plans confirms my original impression of your intentions. Thank you for listening.”

We thank you for all the feedback and especially the positive comments about Bad25! We understand, however, that many of the packages that were shipped of the deluxe “suitcase” version of the release arrived at their destinations damaged. We have also been informed that response to the concerns and replacement of the packages has been slower than what is acceptable to the fans.

We want to assure you that Sony and its manufacturing and shipping partners have received your complaints and are working diligently to address each instance of a damaged package and replace it. We apologize for the delay. Sony is currently working to implement a system to fix the problems more efficiently, and thanks your for your patience.
