Michael Jackson's Kid

They FAKED My Dad's Voice

on 'Michael' Album

2/29/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris made a bombshell announcement to friends ... telling them the MJ album released in the wake of the singer's death did NOT contain MJ's actual voice ... it was an imposter.

TMZ has learned ... the announcement was made during an online video chat with several friends in 2010 ... just before the "Michael" album was released, which contains several previously unreleased tracks allegedly performed by Michael Jackson. 

The video chat was recorded ... and Paris joked about the footage eventually "leaking" to the Internet.

Paris had made the announcement in the midst of rumors that MJ's parts on the "Michael" album were REALLY performed by an MJ sound-alike named Jason Malachi ... but both Jason and Sony denied the allegations.

During the video chat, Paris played one of the songs from the album, "Hold My Hand" ... and one of her friends asks why the singer doesn't sound like MJ. 

Paris replied, "It's NOT him ... the whole album isn't even him!! Go online ... go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That's him!!"

She continues, "I should know if it's him or not because he would sing to me all the time."

TMZ has learned a recording of Paris' video message is being shopped to various media outlets ... and we're told "Offers are on the table."

We all know that "Breaking News", "Monster", & "Keep Your Head Up" were done by an imposter most likely the anti-MJ aka JM aka Jason Malachi...
They could have done better faking if they used "Marcus J. Williams" (you can check his tribute video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-7taGcm8lg)

I think Sony just wanted to trash MJ's legacy... their $200+Million will flop since its based on falseness we the public wanted AUTHENTIC MJ STUFF not fake commercial badly done flops...

& Teddy Reilly proves he is just a backstabber imperialist for saying those were MJ songs & bla bla... :S

Well Paris is wrong IF that is what she said.
'Hold My Hand' is one song that leaked while MJ was alive and it was his voice on that track. Several of the other tracks are also known to be genuine as previous version have been made available online while he was alive.
HOWEVER, the MJ fan community has long thought that the songs supposedly recorded with Frank Cascio have been faked. 'Breaking News', 'Monster', and 'Keep Your Head Up' are faked. If they're not faked then they've been processed far too much and should never have been released.

And shes right its not him performing. Maybe the family needed money at that time. When i first heard "Hollywood tonight" i said who the f*ck is this? Bits and pieces might be him but not the majority of the album. Plus we got technology these days that can do voice comparisons but it wouldn't matter or hold up in court if someone decided to sue. MJ would be pissed, he was a perfectionist.

Great reporting. The video chat was a year BEFORE Michael died?

IF this chat even happened, it's because she was going along with the family's attempt to stir up some controversy about the album & to greedily grab more attention from the media.

This whole family is addicted to attention & then playing victims. So now they're shopping leaking the kids' video chats? Don't they ever have enough MONEY?

Where was this family when Michael needed help? They did nothing to save him from himself. None of them did a thing. They watched him slowly kill himself & they all enabled him.

Did she tell the executors she didn't believe that her father sang those songs? And if she did what was their reaction?

If this was said in 2008,how did she know what songs would be released in 2010?

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

Are there any videos of her explaining why her dad paid off a young buy in excess of 15 million dollars to keep his mouth shut about him molesting the kid? Or talking about why her Dad had kids that weren't his own sleeping in his bedroom with him when any other adult male would be in prison for doing that? I'd love to hear her thoughts on those matters. Who cares if some guy pretended to be MJ on some crappy pop CD.

The ad bots may be a result of Harvey's gay mailing list subscriptions. Staff members have attempted to intervene, but Harvey really enjoys getting his box stuffed. I mean inbox.
