MJ Estate

REVENGE Over

Famous Crank Call

7/4/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Michael Jackson estate has dropped the hammer on the man who famously crank called MJ in 2007 ... claiming he has NO RIGHT to sell the recording because it contains MJ's REAL voice.

0701_mj_prank_call_audio_launch_ex
The call was made by legendary prankster Ralphige -- who has fooled the likes of Donald Trump, Paris Hilton, and Chris Brown.  

During the MJ call, Ralphige pretended to be Akon ... and he teased Michael about molesting children. MJ claimed Ralphige was NOT talking to the real Michael Jackson ... but merely an impersonator.  

Now, the MJ Estate is acknowledging that the King of Pop REALLY WAS pranked -- because they've threatened to sue Ralphige for selling the recording on his website for 99 cents a pop ... without permission from MJ's camp.

The threat worked -- because Ralphige's site is down ... but the prankster sees a silver lining ... telling us, "The letter, if anything, it at least proves to the doubters that the prank call is real."

He adds, "I am afraid the estate is not aware Michael personally gave me permission to release the phone call. This is something that I am sure will be discussed in the near future."

this is not MJ's voice he is not talking with SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I hope the estate will sue TMZ.com also for the lie about MJ giving cocaine to someone!If MJ could sue every supid for every lie he had to take in his life, he could gain billions only from that lies, lies,lies! U killed MJ with ur lies, u didn't deserved him! If MJ was one of us, he could be alive and treated as a real KING!

Michael Jackson’s legacy as an icon of music history is so clouded by our media-biased views of his life that we’ll never know the man behind all his rich music. He is the ultimate example of what happens when celebrity worship goes too far… having the press and court of opinion try him the last half of his life. I created a before and after portrait of The King of Pop on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/in-memoriam-king-of-pop.html

Not a fan of MJ's but think this crank call was pretty sleazy. What if MJ seriously wasn't a child molester? He sure got dragged through the coals as if he was one, and we'll never know the truth of the matter. If he wasn't, then I feel very badly for him, he didn't have much of a life after those allegations surfaced.

The estate should sue that FREAK Ralphige the ri****ulous
Michael outsmarted him from the beginning to the end.

I too am very familiar with the voice that Mike use in old home videos.

The only FOOL that did'nt know was Ralphige the ri****ulous.
MIKE WINS and you're a LOOSER !

You hit the nail on the head. Oh Well does not have a life indeed. You are correct, who would leave a BBQ with all of your friends or family just to look through TMZ for Michael Jackson stories so they can make comments less intelligent then a 10 year old. I see that their comments were taken off of TMZ. Oh Well is probably some nerdy gamer that is into Star Trek....lol.


Your comment was so funny, I'm still laughing. LOL x 2. Have a good day everyone.
