Alleged Jackson Charity Won't Back Down

10/4/2009 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

michael jacksonThe charity being sued by the administrators of Michael Jackson's estate says they should be viewed as "friends" of the Jackson estate and they will fight to continue to protect his legacy.

Heal the World
, which is being accused of ripping off Jackson's name and likeness without permission, denies all the allegations, saying, "This suit has not been brought against the charity to 'protect' Mr. Jackson, his estate, his legacy and certainly not his humanitarian aims as has been claimed. You don't 'protect' yourself from a friend and we are no adversary."

The lawsuit claims the Heal the World charity had no relationship with Jackson or his family.

i thought the "real" "heal the world" stop being active around '02? Just my opinion but if the real one stopped being active then the others shouldn't have been using MJs name or anything else related to MJ if they didn't have MJs consent!

Perhaps TEAM BRANCA can put together a true MJ charity, that fans can contribute to, knowing that all the money donated will go to chairties that were close to MJ's heart.

As a fan, no monies from this ousehold will go towards Heal the World unless it is officially approved by TEAM BRANCA.

PS. Here's to hoping the Jackson clan will back off their attempt to remove the Special Administrators just to place a Jackson in a seat at the table.

Please stop putting this ugly pictures of Michael online.
He was beautiful not like the media wanted him to look like.
This ugly pictures where probably worked out with Photoshop anyways
because they wanted him to look like the monster he never was.
RIP Michael I love you!!
