Michael Jackson's Kids: It's Not Daddy's Voice!

11/1/2010 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Michael Jackson album Sony is about to release is a fraud, according to members of Michael Jackson's family.

Michael Jackson new album:
We've learned Sony is determined to release the album for Christmas, and believes the songs are all authentic.  We're told MJ and his kids were in New Jersey when he recorded the tracks with producers in 2007.

Sources tell us Paris and Prince now believe some of the songs on the album are fakes -- not Michael's voice.  Sony, we're told, is convinced all of the songs are the real deal.  Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the estate, tells TMZ he had experts listen to the tracks and all of the experts concluded it's Michael's voice on all the tracks.

Other Jackson family members also believe some of the tracks are phony.  There is a stalemate, although at this point no one is talking lawsuit.

I’m going to give the kids credit, if they actually said it!!

That's exactly the point. IF they said it. I doubt that. My sorrow is that these kids, still mourning the loss of their dad, are used as an instrument for somebody else's purpose, and I HATE that.

And of course nobody says that the children are mentally challenged. The opposite is true, they seem to be very bright.

Joe was obviously not right about Michael being replaced by body doubles in the film - it was definitely Michael

I don't know how definitive it was. I remember seeing a show around the anniversary of his death that had his makeup artist on it and a couple of his wardrobe people who said MJ wasn't physically able/fit to do the concerts and that the film This Is It was edited in such a way where he would have different outfits on singing the same song because he literally couldn't get through a whole song. And on the same show they had some guy that MJ hired over the years to be his decoy or body double who also believed that some of the footage was shot using a body double.

Really, I could vomit when reading through some of these posts. I've actually thought Halloween is over, but on this board? Obviously never.

Like demons and devils on the loose. Unbelievable!

I too wish the children would not have to be involved in this. I wonder who is responsible for dragging them into it? Wrong. Just wrong. Shame on this/those individual/s!

I disagree in part. To me, it was obvious they used a body double in part of the Smooth Criminal segment. The guy who slides down the stair-rail? Not Michael. I didn't think much about it. Body doubles are often used in these action-like sequences. Joe was trying to stir the pot as he usually does. No big deal. Joe has never pretended to be anything other than who he always was. I think some of what he says is B.S., and other times I think he has a point. More often than not, he uses truth and spins it to his own benefit. IMO, that's what he was doing when he said the movie used body doubles. It did, but not in an attempt to fool anyone.

Hellloooo back! LOL! Don't be naive. These are kids. At least some of what they say is influenced by the people they live with, just as much of who we are is influenced by our parents or who we are raised by. It doesn't take a rocket scientist. I'm not claiming to know what is going on, but isn't it POSSIBLE that members of the Jackson family "encouraged" the kids (either directly or indirectly) to say it isn't Michael's voice? I don't really blame anyone here - I feel sorry for all of those who loved Michael and lost him. That includes the kids, his parents (BOTH OF THEM) and all of his siblings. None of us will ever understand what they feel. We didn't know him personally. THEY DID.

*** In The Meantime....****

Judge Declines To Hear Jackson's Wrongful Death Suit

A wrongful death lawsuit filed by MICHAEL JACKSON's father will be handled by a California state court after a federal judge insisted he does not have the authority to hear the case.

Joe Jackson launched legal action against Jackson's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray in August (10), accusing him of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol, which led to the singer's death in June 2009.

Jackson alleges he was being supported by the Thriller hitmaker at the time of his passing - a claim which gives him the necessary legal standing to pursue a wrongful death suit.

He is said to be seeking damages between $10 million (GBP6.7 million) and $500 million (GBP333.3 million) for loss of support, emotional distress and "loss of comfort, aid, society and companionship".

At a federal court hearing on Monday (01Nov10), Jackson's attorney, Brian Oxman, agreed to dismiss a claim alleging the King of Pop's rights were violated under the Americans with Disabilities Act - prompting U.S. District Judge John F. Walter to rule the remaining issues needed to be handled in a state court.

Oxman said he would refile the case in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The federal judge also said he would not delay the case until after the January (11) criminal trial of Dr. Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the Thriller hitmaker's June, 2009 death.

Did they – really? Don't forget, "SOURCES tell that Prince and Paris believe that some of the songs are fakes". What sources? And what's in the interest of these sources?

If the story of Michael Jackson has taught us anything then it is to mistrust the media in general and unnamed sources in particular. That's exactly how I decided to deal with that story.

Marcia -

yes, they had to cut together pieces of the song song from different rehearsals, because according to Karen Faye, Michael didn't get through one whole song. But what we saw in the film was really Michael. His body was easy to recognize. There are many good imitators out there, but at the end of the day, they don't have Michael's body. Or face.

I think moni has a very good point. Who knows who said what and if they actually said it. Wait till you hear it from their own mouths.

Pertaining to this particular topic: I agree....


These are kids. At least some of what they say is influenced by the people they live with, just as much of who we are is influenced by our parents or who we are raised by.

I don't think Sony would take such a risk, Michael had a wide vocal range,a musical genius. The children are going along with
a few family members who wanted their voices to be on the record, I would love to hear it and plan to purchase it.

yes, I can agree that a body double may have been used to slide the stair rails an jumping through the fake window. Maybe. But that's pretty much it.
