Jermaine Jackson -- Smile for Apple

8/4/2009 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's special administrators want the estate to cash in on a song one of his brothers performed at the memorial, but time is of the essence.

In docs filed with the court, lawyers for the estate say they've negotiated a very favorable agreement for the estate with Apple Inc., for the promotion, distribution and sale of the audio and audiovisual recordings of Jermaine Jackson's performance of the song, "Smile" at the memorial service.

They claim there is currently "a heightened demand for such products due to Jermaine Jackson's moving performance during the memorial service, which may diminish over time."

But they need to act quick, so they're asking the judge to approve the deal ... ASAP.

vile comments    

addressed to former Gavin Arvizo... / GAVIN ARVIZO

You’ve changed your name but I’m sure you read TMZ these days. Please read the whole post.

It’s pretty obvious that adults made you lie... and here’s just one example: „During the course of an August 2003 police interview, the boy alternately said that Jackson molested him "less than five times," "a total of five times," and "about seven times," according to a law enforcement account of the Q&A.“
Later, in the trial, the number of alleged molestations was reduced to two as the timeline jibed with MJ’s and your stays at Neverland.

You were mocked by friends, obsessed fans hated you... – and you suffered by the results of what lawyers, your mother and others started. You had to change your name and move. Your whole life changed and you probably feel anger and disappointment.

But could you imagine the hate, pain and disgrace Michael Jackson had to bear? It’s a miracle he survived over years all the sensational, unfactual media reports which must have hurt him so much. He was acquitted by a jury but your accusations and the media have convicted him.

If you address yourself to a quality paper or reputable tv station, like for example the newspaper LA Times or CNN, they sure would protect your identity. Don’t go to any tabloid or blog. They just will hurt you.

Now Michael Jackson died... but it’s on you to clear his name if you lied to the world about his actions. It’s not too late, Gavin! Truth but also false allegations outlast life.
