Michael Jackson Estate Settles with Heal the World

The Michael Jackson Estate has settled its lawsuit against the Heal the World Foundation, and the Estate is now copacetic with the charity using Michael Jackson's name.

The Estate had sued Heal the World, on grounds it had no right to use MJ's name to solicit money.  But we've learned there was a secret meeting yesterday between Katherine Jackson's new lawyer, Perry Sanders, and Estate lawyer Howard Weitzman.

We're told the Foundation will transfer to the Estate all registered trademarks that relate to Michael Jackson.  MJ's original Heal the World Foundation will be re-formed under the supervision of the Executors. Katherine Jackson will be a member of the board, as will Melissa Johnson, who headed up the most recent version of the foundation.

The lawyers are going to court this AM to dismiss the lawsuit.

MIDNIGHT TOKER ; "if you believe that you are really gullible,she has about as much financial savy as my big toe..financial decisions give me a break"

Hypothetically, she has that right... but, as a member of the Board of Directors in the charity , she has lots of responsabilities, also; I just gave you the definition, the way i learned it in school. don't know what the games will be, behind that.. if she will use her status or not...i guess we will just have to wait and see ...

WELL-WELL-WELL!!! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN EVERYONE RANTS AND RAVES ABOUT HINGS THEY HAVE NO CLUE IN ESPECIALLY WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE MJ ESTATE AND AFFAIRS OF PEOPLE IN WHICH THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. OBVIOUSLY YOU ALL ARE WRONG ABOUT MELISSA JOHNSON AND THE CHARITY AND EVERYTHING YOU ARE TRYING TO CONJURE UP ABOUT PEOPLE INVOLVED IN MICHAEL JACKSONS LIFE. BEST THING TO DO IS STAY OUT OF THINGS WHICH YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT UNTIL YOU HAVE CLEARLY EDUCATED YOURSELVES TO ALL THE FACTS. FOLLOW THE MONEY AND YOU WILL SEE WHO THE REAL CULPRITS ARE. IF THE ESTATE COULD HAVE WON THIS CASE DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD HAVE SETTLED? NO OF COURSE NOT! IF THE ESTATE COULD HAVE GOTTEN ALL OF THE TRADEMARKS THAT HTWF HAD POSSESSION OF DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD HAVE SETTLED? NO. SO WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU? OBVIOUSLY MELISSA JOHNSON WAS TELLING THE TRUTH AND BOTTOMLINE LIS YOU CANNOT BELIEVE ALL THE MEDIA HYPE THAT IS BEING SPEWED IN THE MEDIA. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WAS DONE TO MICHAEL JACKSON IN HIS LIFE AND DEATH AND THIS IS WHAT YELLOW JOURNALISM IS ALL ABOUT, CREATING SENSATIONAL STORIES TO MAKE MONEY AND THIS IS WHAT MICHAEL UNDERSTOOD. IT TIME EVERYONE LOOK AT THE FACTS BEFORE CREATING IT'S OWN HYPE OVER THINGS IN WHICH THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER. LOOK AT THE COUNTLESS HOURS OF EFFORT YOU MJ FANS HAVE UT INTO YOUR RELENTLESS CRUCUFICATION OF HOWARD MANN AND MELISSA JOHNSON AND GUESS WHAT IT IS ALL IN FICTICIOUS VAIN FOR NOTHING BECAUSE YOU ALL DONT REALLY KNOW WHAT THE REAL FACTS ARE. THE PEOPLE YOU ARE FIGHTING ARE NOT THE ENEMIES THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO THINK THEY ARE. OPEN YOUR EYES THERE IS TRUTH OUT THERE SO OPEN YOU EYES AND FIND IT!!!

Poor Michael,he was murdered and now the fake foundation wins.

How did the executors allow this? Maybe they got tired of both k and m so they decided to settle.

Shame on all of them!
