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."

Michael's Guardian Angel    

We're on the same page JD. If the Cascio tracks were authentic, as soon as rumors started circulating that they weren't, Eddie Cascio would've been able to provide proof that his songs were real and it would've been the end of the story.

He had a perfect opportunity to do that for the world to see when he and his family went on the Oprah Winfrey Show (taped in November of 2010 but aired in December of 2010). Instead of showing any valid proof whatsoever, he and his family told stories about Michael and they showed old photos and home movies to gain fans' trust. Some people fell for it and saw them as a sweet family that would never do anything but show love and respect for Michael. For those of us that saw through this, it was a complete waste of time.

Hmmm...This was posted 8 hours ago by @ParisJackson via @Twitter
People should know by now not to believe the media when it comes down to TMZ talking about my family. #HoldMyHad IS my dad actually singing.

Do TMZ have the tape available so we can judge for ourselves just exactly what Paris DID actually say?

This is old news,it was first reported in 2010,even Jackie Jackson tweeted about this back then.
Now it seems to have resurfaced due to someone close to Paris trying to cash in!

Hold My Hand is definitely Michael - one of the few songs on the album that is all was an unfinished song he made with Akon but I think a lot of the songs are faked or at least had impersonators for backup vocals
