MJ Estate statement about "so called" documentary "Leaving
Estate is criticizing a new documentary preparing to make its world premiere
at the Sundance Film Festival at the end of the month.
About Leaving Neverland you can read, "At the height of his stardom Michael
Jackson began long-running relationships with two boys, aged 7 and 10, and their
families. Now in their 30s, they tell the story of how they were sexually abused
by Jackson, and how they came to terms with it years later."
Estate denounced the claims against the prolific singer and the documentary as a
whole. "This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic
attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson. Wade Robson and James
Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything
inappropriate toward them. Safechuck and Robson, the latter a self-proclaimed
'master of deception', filed lawsuits against Michael's Estate, asking for
millions of dollars. Both lawsuits were dismissed."
It’s unclear which of Jackson’s accusers are the focus of Leaving Neverland.
As the Wrap notes, the two brothers who accused Jackson of molestation in the
singer’s 2005 criminal trial are now only in their 20s. Choreographer Wade
Robson, now 36, filed a sexual abuse lawsuit against Jackson in 2013, claiming
Jackson molested him when he was seven years old. That lawsuit was dismissed in
The comments continued, "This so called 'documentary' is just another rehash of
dated and discredited allegations. It's baffling why any credible filmmaker
would involve himself with this project."
The film is produced and directed by Dan Reed, who has worked on a number of
TV documentaries including HBO's Terror series (Moscow, Mumbai, the Charlie
Hebdo attacks) as well as BAFTA winner The Paedophile Hunter.

Sony confesses to releasing fake Michael's songs
In 2010, several songs were released that were said to be recorded by the late
Michael Jackson. Four years later, one fan questioned the music’s validity,
leading many to believe the music was fraudulent. Now, nearly three years after
the scandal, Sony Music Entertainment has admitted to releasing and selling fake
tunes by the late legend.
The fake songs reportedly appeared on the 2010 posthumous album Michael. The
songs in question include: “Monster,” “Keep Your Head Up,” and “Breaking News.”
In court documents obtained by Karen Civil, Vera Servoa – the fan who
kickstarted the investigation into the fake MJ songs – filed a civil suit,
accusing Jackson’s longtime friends Eddie Cascio, James Victor Porte, and his
production company, Angelikson Productions LLC of creating and selling music
through Sony and the Jackson estate.
Cascio and Porte initially claimed that the songs were recorded in Cascio’s
basement in 2007. Serova and the Jackson family, contested those claims however.
While the singles sounded similar to MJ’s sound, they said Michael never
recorded them. Serova testified in the Los Angeles Superior Court that they were
recorded by an impersonator named Jason Malachi.
Consequently, Sony Music Entertainment conceded in court, that it had released
fake singles. It’s unclear if fans or Jackson’s estate will be awarded for the
criminal behavior or whether there will be an monetary punishment for Sony.

MJ Estate speaks out about future projects
People from MJWorld.net have had an uniqe chance to coantact with MJ Estate
and they did chat with co-executor of MJ Estate John Branca. The subjects they
were speaking about are: "Scream" album,"Thriller 3D", "Blood On The Dance Floor"
2017, unreleased songs, Ghosts, concert releases, Neverland.
So here we go:
"Scream" album is a step to expand Michael's fan base, its aimed to
attracting a new audience, audience who may not be too familiar with Michael
Jackson and get them excited about his work.
"Thriller 3D" is a project to see Michael's classic masterpiece
brought even more to life using modern technology and on a big screen, the fact
is that it has been brilliant remastered. You are now able to see it like you
would see it for the first time, you are able to really watch the dancers and
see tiny details that you had never seen before.
The plan is to release "Thriller 3D" at IMAX's around the world as a special
preview you go and watch a big Halloween themed movie. Estate is planning to
release it in next year's Halloween.
"Blood On The Dance Floor" 2017 a new version of original music video.
It's the same video we've seen in the 1997 but also included new dancing stuffs
with the fantastic talents of the Cirque Du Soleil cast. It had to be released
this week but in light of incident in Las Vegas they decided to postpone
the release out of respect.
"Ghosts" it's a news that will delight every fan... Estate are hoping
to remester and release "Ghosts" in 3D next year too. As in case of "Scream"
project's aimed to introduce Michael to a new audice, however this project
hasn't been started yet and they don't know yet what exactly it will be like and
when it will be released.
"Unreleased songs" Mr. Branca explained that he doesn't belive there's
enough high quality recorded music for a whole new album. We all know that
Michael recorded a lot over his lifetime, but music thats's been completed and
reaches the same quality as previous releases, are few and far between. Even
music recorded with will.i.am.didn't include vocals. However, a recording of Sly
and the Family Stone's song "Hot Fun In The Summertime" (which Michael bought
the rights to) does exist. Michael has recorded multiple harmonies for the
chorus of this song, but not any of the verses. So, they may look into getting a
popular singer to make this a duet at some point in the future.
The Estate is aware that some fans find it difficult to accept new music so
that's why they are careful with what they want to give us and what we are
expecting to be given by.
