Rift in Michael Jackson's Family Over Song

11/7/2010 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It seems the Michael Jackson song TMZ posted Friday has created some bad blood in Michael's family.


We posted an MJ song on Friday -- "Opis None" -- along with a statement from Katherine Jackson's business partner, Howard Mann.  Mann, who said he was speaking for Katherine, seemed to be taking a shot at Sony's upcoming MJ album by saying Mann and Katherine wanted to let people hear "an actual authentic Michael Jackson track to the world."

But Jackie Jackson has now  twittered, "I just spoke with my Mother and she did NOT authorize the release of the demo track called Opis None."

And Taj Jackson -- Tito's son -- also tweeted, "Just talked to my grandma.  She didn't  even know about the 'song,' nor did she authorize it.  We are getting to the bottom of this."

Here's what's interesting -- Howard Mann has inserted himself right smack in the middle of Katherine Jackson's business deals, including the Oprah appearance in which Katherine is pitching her book about MJ.

This could be an opportunity for the Michael Jackson Estate to finally get Katherine on board.

I think the interview was a good one and that it shows how the investigation into Michaels death went and how the Doctor will probably get away with it because it all goes beyond just the Doctor. Michael was not meant to go on that tour and they made sure of it. There are too many people like Michael who mysteriously die under strange cir***stances and it is all hidden by someone higher up. It happens everyday and no one notices. I would want nothing more than to talk to someone in Michaels family about my own knowledge on it all. I personally know of someone going thru the same scenerio, somewhat, and he is constantly followed, illegally serveilanced, and even get some of the people you may know to go against you and work on their end for whatever reason they may say, even if it is not true. Your everymove is watched and you have fears of playing anywhere, eating anywhere, or even just visiting friends, for one day that very friend may be taking info for them against you whether the reasinging is true or not.Michael was a good father, brother,son, and uncle and he truly cared.
