'This Is It' Producers: No MJ Body Doubles

10/26/2009 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe people behind "This Is It" are furious over reports that the Michael Jackson featured in the movie is a body double -- claiming those reports are "pure garbage."

The controversy began earlier this month after Joe Jackson claimed the media was going to "tear this movie apart" -- and insisted it was "mostly body doubles."

But a rep from Sony -- co-producers of the flick -- tells TMZ, "This story is pure garbage and there are no body doubles.

Audiences will begin to see the film tomorrow and every time they see The King of Pop they will know that every frame is unquestionably Michael as he rehearses and prepares for the London concerts that were to have begun this past summer.

HEY PEOPLE ...

Joe only said that about body double because he is angry THAT
some one MURDERED HIS SON.

HE IS HURTING, HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO SHOW IT...He is from a
different generation . They are not used to showing their feelings.

I definitely GET IT...
LONG LIVE THE JACKSONS...+3

161. When you go to YouTube, there is an advertisement for This Is It on the top right corner of the page. The picture it shows there definitely doesn't look like MJ at all! Please somebody else tell me I'm not crazy! That can't be him!

That DOESN'T LOOK LIKE HIM! In fact, it's downright creepy if you ask me. I think it's just the pic itself unless he went from 'Thriller' makeup to 'Smooth Criminal'. lol

ANYBODY ELSE SEEN THAT 'FREAKSHOW' PIC??

When you hear stuff like this - he actually did the entire film without a double, his voice was awesome, his dance moves were as sharp as ever - you just wish he was alive for all of this POSITIVE PRESS for change. Michael Jackson was one of the hardest working entertainers in the business hands down. No one will ever compete with him - he was a genious. There is no one else in line for the King of Pop title - no one even close.

RIP - MJ

I went to Youtube, but there was no ad for This Is It. Perhaps it is because I´m in another country.
I really would like to see it...

171. Woul all you f*ucked heads that keep going on about "gold pants" pi$$ off. Its almost like you are deliberately put in here to deter attention away from real questions from people who want real answers. Some of you claim to be nurses, teachers, with fulltime jobs, but you spend more time on this sh*t than anywhere else. How the hell do you manage to hold down a f%cken job! Every freakin post. Sh*t if I was one of you're patients I'd probably be dead because you spend most of your time talking about Michaels di*k. Before you go on that I'm just jealous and have "size inadequecies" I have a freaking vag#na!!). How come to you are always quick to defend Sony, Branca, AEG and discredit Michaels family and other evidence that supports peoples claim.

Why don't you create your own f%$ken "Gold Pants" website and talk d*ck all day while us out here who want real answers to what happened to Michael can discuss things. F$%k you must have real inadequate husbands if you can centre so much attention around another man's d*ck. F&ck I hope your husbands/partners have the same freedom to oogle other chicks and talk about their tits like you dumb bit%hes do. We get it f%ckheads alright!

In case you haven't noticed, alot of us have been on here for awhile now, and believe me when I say we have gotten down to the nuts and bolts of this murder.

It is a tragedy of which the magnitude of it is so overwhelming at times that yes, we address our goldpantsitis condition, of which I may add there will never be a cure for, so that we are not on here screaming and crying out of anger over this senseless murder.

You obviously have not seen all of our posts, yes, we do get very heated and outraged, but we also remember the man. All aspects of the man. If we did not take a break like that, it would not help us stay focused on the truth for Michael!

We are all angry, we are all furious!!! We wait for the moment that MJ gets his justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Justice and Love for MJ & his Children

Joe Jackson, get a lawyer and sue for some of that money because Michael Jackson was your son and you raised him until adulthood. John Branca and McClain did not raise Michael Jackson, they have encroached on your property and are reaping the fruits you sawed when Michael Jackson was an infant. The whole world knows it and it is disheartening the way you have been treated and portrayed. Michael Jackson said awful things about his father when Michael was under the influence of PROPOFOL, MIDAZOLAM, LORAZEPAM, DIAZEPAM, LIDOCAINE AND EPHEDRINE. Michael’s pill popping and self hatred are the reasons why Joe Jackson is not in the Will. Michael claimed his father beat him when he was little, in the 1960’s corporal punishment was acceptable in the United States. All kids in the United States got whipped back then. JOE JACKSON, PUT YOUR GLOVES ON AND WAGE A WAR AGAINST JOHN BRANCA AND MCCLAIN, FIGHT MAN, THAT WAS YOUR SON MAN. TAKE YOU CASE TO THE SPREME COURT IF YOU HAVE TOO. AND GOD BLESS.
