Michael Jackson's Accusers Robson, Safechuck Likely To Get New Trials. 18-11-'19

Wade RobsonThe 2 men who sued Michael Jackson's estate and were the subject of the gut-wrenching 'Leaving Neverland' documentary are set to get their day in court to press their sexual abuse claims against the singer's estate.

As you may know ... Wade Robson and James Safechuck sued MJ for sexual abuse, but their lawsuits were dismissed in 2017 -- partly due to the statute of limitations. Both men appealed their rulings and the cases have been stuck in appellate court ... until now.

We've learned the California Court of Appeal just issued a tentative ruling which would overturn the dismissals, on grounds a new California law extended the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases. That means Robson and Safechuck can have their cases heard before a jury.

It's not a done deal. As we said, the ruling is tentative. Oral arguments are set for this week, and the justices could change their minds, but typically the tentative ruling stands.

Now the MJ Estate has a number of other objections to claims, which will be addressed by the trial judge.

James SafechuckWade and James' story aired on HBO in January, and their molestation claims sparked a movement to mute Michael Jackson and further tarnished his legacy. Jackson's family called 'Leaving Neverland' an unfair "public lynching."

The pair claimed in the bombshell HBO film that they were abused by the late King of Pop when they joined him on tour as children.

Wade alleged he was sexually abused by Michael from the age of seven until 14, while James claimed he was a victim from the age of 10 until he hit puberty.

The movie's director Reed defended the documentary and claimed that it shows the other side to what he called Michael's ''Peter Pan-ish image''.

The Jackson estate has denied all allegations made against the singer and in August, another documentary, 'Chase The Truth', was released to defend the 'Bad' singer against the claims.

We reached out to reps from the MJ Estate and reps for the alleged victims. They all had no comment.

Prince And Paris Jackson Share Memories Of Dad Michael Jackson For Vogue. 15-11-'19

Prince and ParisParis Jackson and Prince Jackson are keeping their father's legacy alive.

Michael Jackson's eldest children represented him at Motown's 60th-anniversary celebration in Paris and, unsurprisingly, the momentous occasion inspired many memories of their late father. In a behind-the-scenes video from Vogue, Paris and Prince reminisce about days past and how they keep their father's memory alive in subtle but important ways.

One such way is in their choice of dress. The two siblings reveal that they still work with their father's stylist Rushka Bergman, who is able to achieve the flashy styles that Michael was known for. This is evidently clear when she helps Prince into a jacket that is "the most divine."

"I remember Rushka was my dad's stylist. She would always come in with these large racks... my dad loved shiny things, blingy, you know? So when I came in yesterday to look at the jacket, it was almost nostalgic," Prince shares. "It was very cool that to see that I am like, not really being put in the same shoes, but almost doing a very similar thing."

He adds that it felt like everything was coming "full circle."

Paris, on the other hand, opts for a more rocker look combined with touches of sparkle, thus representing the more daring side of her father's sense of fashion. One of her two dresses for the night features a thigh-high leg slit, which compliments her lean legs and torso.

Clearly, dressing in styles that their father would approve of is of importance, especially since they're doing it for a label that their father loved so dearly. They reveal that Michael's history with Motown is one that their father spoke of "fondly." According to Prince, "Motown is, I mean, how do you explain Motown? If you're part of Motown, it's kind of like an extended family. Like, 'Oh, you were a part of that too?'"

And his big sister agrees. She tells the cameras, "I think of my childhood when I hear the word Motown. I grew up listening to all of that and it's very nostalgic."

'Greatest Hits' (Clear Vinyl - Limited Edition) Album Is Reissued. 15-11-'19

The reissue of the 'Greatest Hits'' album in transparent vinyl is released in Europe by Motown/Universal.

'Greatest Hits' was for the first time released on December 9th, 1971 in the USA and in the United Kingdom the album was released during August 1972 by Tamla Motown.

The original release of the Jackson 5’s 'Greatest Hits' album in 1971 was cause for celebration, as it encapsulated an extraordinary 18-month strings of back-to-back-to-back-back-etc. hits and was itself a hit souvenir of Jacksonmania. It featured eight smash records, led by the group’s phenomenal Motown debut, 'I Want You Back', plus two immensely popular B-sides – 'I Found That Girl' and 'Who’s Lovin’ You' – and something new: 'Sugar Daddy', a just-dropped single which went top 10 pop and no. 3 R&B; it was then not available on any other J5 album.

This album reissue is something new again: it features the rare quadraphonic mixes, originally released in Japan only in 1975. These mixes used alternate vocals and sometimes emphasized instrumentation not heard in the J5 singles or LP and as a result these versions are much sought-after. As within this edition these mixes are the stereo folds, consumers do *not need a special decoder or four speakers to enjoy the music.

All songs produced by The Corporation.

Greatest Hits (Clear Vinyl - Limited Edition) [re-issue] Album CoverThe limited edition album will contain 11 songs from Motown catalogue.

Track list:

1. I Want You Back - 2:58

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson Songs Back On New Zealand Radio Airwaves. 14-11-'19

Michael Jackson songs are starting to seep back on to New Zealand airwaves, after some stations made the call to drop them earlier this year.

In March, the singer's music was scrapped from New Zealand radio stations after 'Leaving Neverland', an explosive documentary by filmmaker Dan Reed, focusing on claims by two men who were close to Jackson as children and claim the singer molested them for years.

At the time, MediaWorks Group Content Director Leon Wratt said the decision to not play Jackson's music primarily affected The Breeze and More FM, but also extended to the network's wider brands.

"We [MediaWorks] aren't deciding whether Michael Jackson is guilty of paedophilia, we're just making sure our radio stations are going to play the music people want to hear," he said.

He added: "The audience has always been pretty split over Michael [Jackson]," before stressing that audience trends guided the stations' playlists.

A representative for NZME echoed Wratt's statement in March, saying "NZME station playlists change from week to week, and right now Michael Jackson does not feature on them".

​NZME brands include ZM, The Hits, Flava, Coast, and Newstalk ZB, among others.

However, in recent months, MediaWorks' The Breeze and NZME's Coast radio stations were playing some of Jackson's music again.

A MediaWorks spokesperson said station playlists were the results of regular listener testing.

"The songs that feature on air are a reflection of audience response," she said.

"In the last couple of months, The Breeze has seen positive listener survey results for some of his songs and, as a result, those songs have been added to the playlist on low rotation."

NZME entertainment group director Dean Buchanan said songs by Michael Jackson had always been included in the bank of songs available to programmers on some NZME radio stations.

"Currently we have a small selection of Michael Jackson songs playing on Coast," he said.

"Our audiences are constantly front of mind when we decide what makes the airwaves, regardless of if it's a song, commercial or an interview. Because of this, NZME radio network's playlists evolve from week to week based on popularity, relevance and to ensure variety for our listeners."

Stark Raving Dad'Simpsons' Episode Featuring Michael Jackson Kept Off Disney+. 13-11-'19

The full Simpsons library is available to stream for the first time in the show's history thanks to Disney+, but a once popular (now infamous) episode was not included.

'Stark Raving Dad', the 1991 installment that kicked off the Fox cartoon's third season, is absent from the newly launched streaming platform. The season now begins with "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington," which is properly labeled as No. 2 under chapters.

Disney did not respond to multiple requests for comment as to why the episode is missing and who made the call.

It is assumed 'Stark Raving Dad' is off Disney+ because Michael Jackson (not officially credited) was the guest star. Jackson voiced Leon Kompowsky, a man Homer meets while in a mental institution who sounds like Jackson. The episode was a favorite among fans for several years.

In March of this year, 'Stark Raving Dad' was pulled from broadcast circulation following the release of the HBO documentary film 'Leaving Neverland', in which the late pop star was accused by multiple men of molestation when they were boys.

Pulling the episode was “the only choice to make," said executive producer James L Brooks at the time. “I’m against book-burning of any kind. But this is our book, and we’re allowed to take out a chapter," he explained.

Jackson's estate has vehemently denied all allegations.

Taj JacksonUpdate On Taj’s Documentary. 12-11-'19

I also reconnected with someone (from my uncle’s past) that I believe will elevate our project even more than I ever dreamed of. This project just went up several notches. And I already think big.
That’s all I can say about that for now.

As you can see, there are those who are desperately trying to erase Michael Jackson and his legacy from music history. We must not let this happen. We need to call them out and demand that they correct these calculated omissions.
But have faith, we know the truth, and as long as we keep sharing it and passing it down to our future generations, the truth will become history again. That’s the whole goal of this project… to be a concrete blueprint.

Last but not least…
Thank you again for not only supporting me, but my uncle’s legacy. As I said before, it is an absolute honor to be working on this project. My uncle was the most amazing person I knew and I am grateful to do this for him.
My uncle always said the song “Will You Be There” had a very special place in his heart. I can say, without a doubt, you guys ARE there for him… through thick and thin and I know he is proudly smiling from heaven.

Taj JacksonTaj Jackson Slams Jackson Family ‘Erasure’ In ‘Apollo’ Doc. 11-11-'19

Michael Jackson’s nephew, Taj, is demanding answers after the singer and Jackson 5 were barely mentioned in 'The Apollo' documentary that premiered on HBO last week.

“How dare you erase black music history. Where is the Jackson 5? The group you helped launch on your stage. Black artists and celebs need to take note. This can happen to you too in the future. Not just my family, I’m so disappointed. Did @HBO @HBODocs make you edit them out,” he tweeted.

The iconic theater helped catapult the Jackson 5 to stardom when the band won its “amateur night” in 1967. One of Jackson’s last public performances was at the Apollo when he performed at a DNC fund-raiser for Bill Clinton in 2002.

Thousands gathered at the Apollo to mourn Jackson’s death in 2009.

But Jackson’s estate and HBO have been in a contentious, $100 million lawsuit since January when the cable network aired its Emmy-winning documentary 'Leaving Neverland' — about alleged child sex-abuse claims against the late singer. His estate’s denied the allegations.

MTV quietly removed MJ’s name from its Video Vanguard Award in August.

Reps for the Apollo and Jackson’s estate didn’t comment.

Michael Jackson's Desperate Letters To Queen Pleading For Knighthood. 08-11-'19

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson wrote to the Queen demanding a knighthood but she ignored him, his former bodyguard has claimed.

According to Matt Fiddes, who protected Jackson for the final 10 years of his life, says the pop star would often say: "I'm the biggest star in the world, why aren't I Sir Michael Jackson, what's going on?"

He also believed his friendship with Princess Diana would help him get the honour, but it didn't work.

Speaking in 2015, Mr Fiddes told the Daily Mail : "Michael was very ambitious, he never lost it. The one thing he didn’t have, that was very important to him, was recognition from the Queen.

"He was good friends with Diana and he couldn’t understand it. He would say “I’m the biggest star in the world, why aren’t I Sir Michael Jackson, what’s going on?"

"Steven Spielberg was made a Sir, so it’s obviously not just a British thing."

He says the pair wrote letters to the Queen asking her to consider him, and tried a number of other approaches to make it happen.

Mr Fiddes also claims Jackson even agreed to meet a senior politician who offered to help him get the knighthood he so desperately wanted.

He claims that after the meeting the politician acted more like a "starstruck fan" and "harassed" the star for months, begging to visit him at his Neverland Ranch in California.

In another interview in 2017, Fiddes said that his old boss had been in love with Princess Diana and wanted to marry her.

"Michael told me he loved her, and he was in love with her, and he wanted to marry her. He told me she was his ideal wife," he told the Daily Star.

"He felt she was the only person in the world who could understand his life in terms not being able to go anywhere, and the media stories that got out of hand.

"The intrusion into the private life, having no privacy whatsoever, the children being hounded. He felt an immediate bond with her as soon as they met.

"They were both very shy individuals and he loved her, he wanted to marry her truth be told."

Michael Jackson Crept Back Into The Billboard Hot 100 This Week. 09-11-'19

Michael Jackson crept back into the Billboard Hot 100 this week (dated Nov. 9) with his haunted hit 'Thriller', as the Halloween anthem re-entered the chart at No. 44. 'Thriller' also topped the LyricFind Global chart during the Oct. 12.-dated week.

The spooky classic is most memorable for its music video, which stars the young King of Pop watching a scary movie with his date that pales in comparison to the freaky choreography he gets into with his fellow ghouls and zombies.

HBOJudge Granted HBO’s Bid To Pause Arbitration. 07-11-'19

A federal judge Thursday granted entertainment network HBO’s bid to pause arbitration proceedings with the estate of Michael Jackson over the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary pending HBO’s appeal to the Ninth Circuit.

The network called the 27-year-old agreement invalid in court papers and moved to dismiss the case under California’s anti-SLAPP statute, which protects against meritless complaints that impede free speech rights.

In a September ruling, U.S. District Judge George Wu denied HBO’s bid to toss the complaint and sent the matter to arbitration.

HBO filed court papers a month later seeking to stay Wu’s order until the Ninth Circuit rules on whether the entertainment network would be “irreparably harmed” by arbitration proceedings.

At issue is whether arbitration in this matter has the effect of chilling HBO’s speech by providing Jackson’s estate with a “perpetual forum” to criticize the documentary, court papers said.

“The public interest favors a stay given the strong interests in protecting the exercise of First Amendment rights and promoting expressive, newsworthy works exploring issues of public concern such as 'Leaving Neverland',” attorneys for HBO said in court papers.

At a hearing Thursday (November 7) in federal court in Los Angeles, Wu granted HBO’s motion for a stay and said he’d like the Ninth Circuit to weigh in on the First Amendment questions.

“This is not a typical arbitration case,” Wu said, adding later the case is unique because of the First Amendment concerns and that he “isn’t here just to enforce a contract.”

Jonathan Steinsapir of Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert, an attorney for the Michael Jackson estate, told Wu the stay is simply an HBO delay tactic and that multiple courts have rejected the notion that arbitration equals irreparable harm.

“We’re not seeing evidence that anyone has been silenced,” Steinsapir said regarding HBO’s free speech concerns. “Michael Jackson is still the most talked about celebrity in the world.”

“Trump may have superseded him, I think,” Wu said, prompting a chorus of chuckles from the gallery.

Bryan Freedman of Freedman & Taitelman, an attorney for the plaintiffs, told Wu he is making a simple breach of contract case more complicated than it needs to be.

“We think it’s a typical contract case. HBO are big boys and they bargained for a contract,” Freedman told Wu. “The harm to us is not being able to put this case before an arbitrator.”

Michael's SocksAuction company GottaHaveRockandRoll are offering the socks as part of their Frank DiLeo collection in the coming weeks (pictured in November 2009).

Meanwhile, Michael's oldest son, 22-year-old Prince recently reflected on his dad's legendary music career, and admitted despite finding it difficult to chose a stand-out track, he does have his favourites.

He added: ''One of my favourite songs... is 'Man In The Mirror' because it's such a great call to action, you know, everybody can get behind. It is like, 'If you really want to make a change for the world, you need to change yourself first and you need to really look within and see yourself for who you actually are.' ''

Michael Jackson’s Estate Acquires Sly And The Family Stone’s Catalogue. 02-11-'19

The Estate of Michael Jackson/MIJAC Music has acquired majority ownership of Sly and the Family Stone’s catalogue in the United States. Outside of the U.S., it owns the entirety of the band’s catalogue. In a press release obtained by Pitchfork, Sly Stone said, 'Thank You Mijac (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)', a reference to the 1969 Sly and the Family Stone hit 'Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)'.

“Sly and the Family Stone were a force for enlightenment and positive change, a message that Michael believed in,” the estate’s co-executors John McClain and John Branca added in the release. “He recognized [Sly Stone]’s genius and the power of his words and music which is why he first acquired the catalog and why we at MIJAC follow in Michael’s footsteps today.”

Sly And The Family StoneSly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1966 to 1983, it was pivotal in the development of funk, soul, rock, and psychedelic music.

Sly and the Family Stone’s royalties have been hotly disputed, even in recent years. Just a year ago, Primary Wave Music Publishing claimed to have interest in the band’s catalogue, but the Jackson Estate disputed those claims. In 2010, Sly Stone sued his longtime manager, Jerry Goldstein, for allegedly defrauding Stone of “tens of millions” in royalties. A jury awarded Stone $5 million in damages in 2015, but later that year a judge ruled that Stone could not collect because he sold his royalties to a production company in the 1980's.

Michael Jackson Alive Conspiracy: Singer Urged To Get DNA Test To Prove He's MJ. 02-11-'19

Sergio CortesMichael Jackson fans have urged the singer to take a DNA test to prove he isn't the real Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson is alive and pretending to be an impersonator of himself, bizarre fans have claimed.

The King of Pop died in June 2009 of a homicidal overdose.

Since his demise, conspiracists claim the singer faked his death in order to shy away from the limelight.

And a new video has added further fuel to the conspiracy fire.

Bombshell footage has since emerged on Facebook seeing fans demand a DNA to be done on an MJ impersonator.

In the clip, Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortes promotes an upcoming gig in the Thai city of Pattaya on December 23.

But the Spanish musician's MJ likeliness has sent fans asking questions.

The man is seen sporting the same black locks and facial features.

Sergio says, in a high pitched voice very much like Jackson's: “Hello to all Michael Jackson fans, come and watch me perform at Hollywood Pattaya on December 23rd.

“I love you guys and see you there. I am Sergio Cortes, see you soon.”

But since uploading the clip to his 111,000 fans, hundreds have flooded in asking for him to prove he isnt the real deal.

One person said: "Oh my god, you're not Sergio Cortès, you're Michael Jackson.
"Someone get his DNA."

A second added: "I need a DNA test, I'm sorry."

"This is the best impersonation I’ve seen of Michael as far as looks," another stated.

Not all viewers believed the bizarre claims, one person said: "That's not the real Michael, he's an impersonator."

The conspiracy world was also sent into a frenzy back in 2016 when Jackson’s daughter Paris uploaded a selfie to Instagram.

At first glance, it appeared a normal photo from inside her car.

But truthseekers soon claimed to have spotted a shadowy figure in the back seats.

YouTube theorist beLIEve uploaded the image to his channel, before editing it to “lighten” the background – with the face of MJ appearing.

Jackson was found dead at a Los Angeles mansion in 2009, aged 50 years old.

He suffered a heart attack after a propofol overdose administered by his physician Conrad Murray, who later spent two years in jail for involuntary manslaughter.
