Fans have asked the Estate to elaborate on its decision to respond to some of LaToya Jackson’s comments as she promoted her new book, as well as its decision not to respond formally to a false and erroneous report out of Australia that allegedly quoted Aaron Carter as saying he and Michael used drugs together.
If someone severely misrepresents the facts surrounding Michael’s Estate and makes serious, reckless and false accusations that go unanswered, it demeans and maligns Michael’s memory and legacy, and may also potentially hurt the business of the Estate, thereby affecting the future earnings that benefit Michael’s beneficiaries.
When a tabloid report like the Aaron Carter story occurs, involving claims made by people who knew Michael during his life, the Estate always must ask the same questions: how credible is the source; can it be verified; and would issuing a public response only put an unwarranted spotlight on a questionable, negative story about Michael the Estate has no desire to publicize?
In this case, the Executors knew the account came from a marginal celebrity gossip site, and was conducted by a journalist with a long history of controversy involving Michael and his family. Furthermore, the Executors also knew Aaron Carter had previously denied the allegations to People magazine, something that was noted to any media who asked the Estate about the report. In the end, the Estate believes the story took care of itself: Aaron Carter’s decision to refute it himself was the best solution, in that it called the most attention possible to the credibility of this story. Any benefit from the Estate calling out irresponsible media reportage could then possibly be outweighed by the detriment of even more media spotlight on a bogus story.
As for LaToya Jackson, the Estate felt compelled to respond to irresponsible and untruthful statements that were defamatory, and which grossly misrepresented facts that are in the public court record. LaToya was going on many television shows, repeating some of the same bogus info, and the Estate felt it important to try and contain any additional/future damage beyond that which had already been done, and, sadly, which had already started to be repeated as fact by other media to promote their sites or sell their news reports.
It’s probably an impossible task to make decisions that everyone likes. Some will agree, some will disagree, but in the end, it is the ultimate responsibility of the Co-Executors to fulfill their obligations per Michael’s wishes by doing what they think best in each and every instance, to protect, preserve, and grow Michael’s legacy and memory for Michael and his fans, and to protect, preserve and grow the Estate for its beneficiaries.
Thank you to Gayle from MJOnline (The Official Online Team of the Michael Jackson Estate™) for sharing this information with us.
It has been a long time since we had new themes on the site — for the main section especially. I designed both this time around and went for a clean and quick loading style. I hope you all enjoy them! Please let me know in the chatbox, email ( email@example.com ), twitter or comment on the site if you find something is in error or if you have any troubles at all with viewing or anything to do with the new themes. Thank you so much for visiting and please keep checking back.
My friend Kieran over at Anna-Torv.Us has generously donated larger images of Session 127 to the site. A huge thank you to him for being kind enough to donate them. I hope you all enjoy the shoot!

To some it is already the 25th of June, 2011. Two years ago today the world lost a great entertainer but most importantly an amazing human being. Michael Jackson to some means the King Of Pop – Of Music. But he was so much more than that and all of his family, friends and fans know how much he means to us all and what we see him as. Today we remember Michael’s strength, love, compassion, music, beauty, determination and so much more. Today we celebrate his legacy, his life and how much he gave to the world. Though our hearts are heavy, we shall smile through the tears, because we aren’t remembering what was lost but what had been and still continues to show through music and the hearts of all who love Michael.
