Ali Gharachorloo Send This Message To Me And Thank Him For That. 21-11-'21

Ali GharachorlooHi dear Dirk ! I am one of the oldest Michael Jackson fans in my country who knew you and your amazing website many years ago when Michael was still alive. I still vividly remember and cherish all those unforgettable memories of spending hours and hours on BillieJean to read the latest news, to download your newest lovely wallpapers, and all those exciting remixes.

Unfortunately, everything changed for me on June 25 2009 and then I forgot about your place for many many years until the last weekend when I was looking for something about Michael Jackson and all of a sudden, I discovered you all over again! It was so incredible and wonderful to see you are still here in exactly the same lovely home that I used to love so much. Since last week, I have been checking BillieJean regularly and trying to have a look at some of the old stuff that I missed as well during the past years.

On behalf of all my fellow countryman Michael Jackson lovers and also, the local fans here in my current living country, I appreciate you for all you have done for Michael Jackson throughout the years. Thanks, bro and keep on dancing! ❤️

Earth Song CD Single Cover'Earth Song' Wins Second Single Multi-Platinum In The UK. 20-11-'21

The 'King of Pop' continues to show great sales performance in several countries, ensuring another certificate for its list of achievements.

One of Michael Jackson's biggest hits in Europe, the track 'Earth Song' was certified double platinum in the UK! This means that 1.2 million copies were sold in the country alone.

The song was the third single from the 1995 album 'HIStory: Past, Present And Future, Book I' and also reached #1 on the UK's top hit chart. With this new achievement, the song joins 'Billie Jean' and is the 'King of Pop's second with 2x platinum.

'Earth Song' was the first that overtly dealt with the environment and animal welfare. 'Earth Song' was made for the 'Dangerous' album but it failed to make the album. The song was written and composed by Jackson; the task of production was split between Jackson, David Foster and Bill Bottrell.

Wade RobsonJustice Orders Wade Robson To Pay Estate Of Michael Jackson. 18-11-'21

Choreographer who accuses Michael Jackson of sexual abuse loses case and is forced to pay court fees.

After losing the lawsuit he had filed since 2013 against Michael Jackson's companies, federal judge Mark Young issued this Thursday that Wade Robson must cover the court costs of his lawsuit and reimburse the Michael Jackson Estate $75,426.93, $7,332 more than was ordered in 2018.

The Estate was seeking damages of $112,960, but the judge decided to waive Robson's IME (Independent Medical Examination) fee.

Also remember that Robson has a contingency contract with his lawyers, and they can cover the expenses. How they proceed in these cases is uncertain, but they assume that their clients don't spend a penny on their lawsuits and would only get their share if they won the lawsuit or reached an out-of-court settlement.

Anyway, Wade Robson sued for profit and went out of his way.

HBOEstate vs. HBO: Arbitrator Of The Case Is Finally Chosen. 18-11-'21

HBO may have to indemnify the Michael Jackson Estate by as much as $100 million.

The Michael Jackson Estate lawsuit against HBO took another step in the last week. The 'King of Pop's administrators accuse the station of defamation in the documentary 'Leaving Neverland'.

The case has been in the US court since even before the 'documentary' was released by HBO, and in May, federal judge George Wu had already signaled favoring the prosecution. Now, the lower court has granted the Estate's request to take the dispute to arbitration, as provided for in the contract leading to the choice of Terry B. Friedman as arbitrator in the case.

Friedman recently ruled in Bruce Willis's favor in a case against producer Benaroya Pictures after a "flood of false statements lasted eight months." Friedman, as an arbitrator, concluded that the company and Benaroya broke an $8 million contract for Willis to star in the feature film 'Wake'.

It remains to be seen whether it will be a public or private process; remember that the Estate fights for PUBLIC arbitration, and HBO continues to try to avoid it. If the judgment rules in favor of the prosecution, the company may have to indemnify the Michael Jackson Estate by as much as $100 million.
