Dan ReedDan Reed Might Be Broke Soon. 01-04-'20

In February, we announced that the distribution company for Dan Reed's stupid documentary was up for closure, Kew Media Distribution is now trying to recoup some cash by selling their catalogue which includes 'Leaving Neverland' but Dan Reed and producers are claiming Kew hasn't got the right to the documentary.

Oh boy! This is very messy and we all have a big smile on our faces about it! It's like watching a live car crash with Dan Reed driving…

"Way before Kew went into administration, we terminated the 'Leaving Neverland' distribution contract for non-payment. They owe us a really significant chunk of money," Amos Pictures boss Reed said. "We terminated that contract under English law, so I'm flabbergasted that the administrators now consider that that title is theirs to sell."

He added: "I want to put them on notice that they are not entitled to sell that film. It's outrageous that having fallen down on their obligations and following a notice of termination, issued in accordance with the law, that they're still pressing on with pretending they're entitled to sell the program."

"We're a small company and 'Leaving Neverland' is a big title. I've gone to considerable personal risk by going up against the Jackson estate. That is not something that you do lightly. I'm not going to let somebody take it away from me."

Reed said he is also continuing to chase the money he is owed for the sales of 'Leaving Neverland'. "We will get together and if necessary combine with the other creditors to fight and recover as much as possible from the sale of Kew and its assets," he said.

Hey Dan! That's what happens: When you make shit, you get crap! Did you not say this was not about the money… clearly it is!

Let's hope this will be over soon and Reed will be no longer making fictional movies!

Tiger King Star Claims Michael Jackson's Alligators Were Killed In Joe Exotic's Zoo Fire. 01-04-'20

Tiger KingTiger King star John Finlay has claimed the alligators that perished in Joe Exotic's zoo fire belonged to Michael Jackson.

The Netflix hit – branded "bonkers" by viewers – tells the story of Exotic, a tiger trader embroiled in a rivalry with animal rights activist Carole Baskin.

Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for crimes including trying to hire someone to murder Baskin.

Footage shown in the documentary sees Exotic discussing a blaze at his zoo. He said the animals involved were "boiling alive in a towering inferno."

Finlay, who was in a relationship with Exotic when Tiger King was filmed, spoke about Jackson's animals in a new interview for Lights Out with David Wade.

He said: "My favourite animals were the alligators and crocodiles. A previous manager had gotten Michael Jackson's alligators from the Neverland Ranch.

"We'd got some other ones from friends and stuff. They were the ones I really took care of most of the time."

According to a 2015 KXII article written after the fire took place, Exotic himself said: "The building can be replaced, the equipment can be replaced, but Michael Jackson's alligators cannot be replaced."
