Statement From The Estate Of Michael Jackson
The Executors of Michael’s Estate were shocked to learn of the attempt to sell Michael’s medical records. Immediately upon the information being brought to their attention, the Estate’s lawyers were directed to send an appropriate letter to the auction house and are taking all steps possible to ensure that these private records remain private.
Déclaration de l’Estate (FR)
« Michael Jackson donnait toujours des objets à ses amis, ses fans, des enfants malades auxquels il rendait visite et d’autres personnes qu’il a rencontré au cours de sa vie. En conséquence, l’Estate ne possède pas tous les costumes et/ou autres objets ayant appartenu à Michael Jackson. Beaucoup de personnes possèdent maintenant différents objets de Michael Jackson et ces articles sont la propriété de ces individus; l’Estate ne peut pas contrôler ce que ces particuliers font avec les biens qui leur appartiennent. Mais tous les fans de Michael peuvent être assurés que même si l’Estate ne possède pas chaque article porté par Michael à cause de sa générosité, l’Estate détient plus qu’il ne faut de costumes et d’accessoires de mode ainsi que d’autres biens ayant appartenu à Michael pour permettre de créer un musée/une exposition que les fans pourront admirer et où ils pourront honorer Michael de façon appropriée. Les fans qui ont assisté au Michael Jackson Fan Fest à Las Vegas l’année dernière ont pu le constater. Tout ce qui faisait partie de cette exposition était et restera propriété de l’Estate et il reste beaucoup d’objets qui n’ont pas été exposés. Bien qu’il soit prématuré de le faire maintenant, l’Estate attend avec impatience de partager ses futurs projets avec les fans, le moment venu. »
Message from the Estate of MJ (EN)
« Michael Jackson was always giving items to friends, fans, sick children he visited and others he met throughout his life. As a result, the Estate does not own all Michael Jackson costumes and/or other pieces. Many people now possess different Michael Jackson items, and those items are the property of those individuals; the Estate cannot control what private citizens do with their own property. But all of Michael’s fans can rest assured that while the Estate may not have every single item ever worn by Michael as a result of his own generosity, the Estate does have more than enough costumes and fashion accessories along with all Michael’s other possessions to enable the Estate to create a museum/exhibition for fans to enjoy and to honor Michael appropriately. Any fans who attended the Michael Jackson Fan Fest exhibit in Las Vegas last year saw that. Everything that was part of that exhibition was and remains Estate property and there is more property that was not displayed. Although it is premature to do so now, the Estate looks forward to sharing its future plans with then fans at the appropriate time. »
Michael Jackson’s Wembley DVD is #1 In The World (EN)
The world loves Michael Jackson. Rest assured that every action the Estate takes will continue to endeavor that fans experience exciting new projects that further build upon and enhance his incredible legacy as an artist and humanitarian, while securing the financial future of those he specifically named as his beneficiaries.
Sadly the full potential of Michael’s legacy continues to be hindered by a small handful of people who recklessly spread false rumors and obsess over stale, internet-fueled conspiracy theories much as they did when Michael was alive. These rumors have long since been debunked and have no legal or factual foundation.
This week, some of these baseless theories appeared yet again in an article in Vanity Fair in the form of an excerpt from a book written by Randall Sullivan that will rehash these tired theories. While we do not want or need to respond to all of the nonsense, we do want to remind everyone of at least a few truths.
The suggestion that John Branca or Howard Weitzman have a conflict of interest when it comes to AEG, and for that reason did not join Katherine Jackson in suing AEG, is not only false but reckless and noticeably unsupported by any facts. The Estate chose not to join in the lawsuit because it saw no evidence that AEG was culpable in Michael’s tragic passing. Eventually, should the case proceed to trial any decision on AEG’s liability will be decided by a jury. That said, the Executors are troubled by the unfortunate and distasteful information being brought out in those proceedings which could sully and damage Michael’s reputation and our memory of him.
Another outrageously false claim is that Michael’s burial was delayed by any action of the Estate.
As for the Will filed in the Probate Court, let’s be clear: IT IS LEGALLY VALID, and the court properly appointed John Branca and John McClain as co-Executors. Those who wished to contest Michael’s wishes had every opportunity to challenge his Will. It should be noted that the 2002 will is consistent with Michael’s wishes as expressed in three prior wills.
Sitting in the cheap seats and perpetuating tired cloak and dagger theories as Mr. Sullivan has done is not journalism, it’s gossip mongering for profit. Look no further than some of the sources Sullivan relied upon for much of the incorrect information he chose to include in this book.
Our commitment is and always has been to Michael’s legacy, his beneficiaries, his fans and to the spirit of an extraordinary artist and humanitarian who continues to touch the world.

Statement from Prince Michael Jackson (EN)
Statement from Prince Michael Jackson : I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family, my dad really appreciated your support and I still treasure it to this day. As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side. As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt. The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth”
