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."

In the WHOLE album was Michael Jackson!!!!! The album had a GREAT success in the whole world as people in the world listen to Michael Jackson for years LONG BEFORE she was born and know much better than her if it's or not Michael Jackson on an album, so she shouldn't know a damn thing!!!! Moreover, initially she had said she knew it is not Michael just because she had listened to him while he was recording the songs along with Frank Cascio, then she changed what she said in a evidently most convenient version!!!! Furthermore, it was greedy unnatural mother Katherine first and the Jackson family of parasites who said it was not Michael Jackson just because they have not the control of his Estate and the money did not go in their pockets, and greedy unnatural mother Katherine even tried to pass off OLD Michael Jackson's songs for new, then she retracted saiyng it was her shady business partner Howard Mann's fault!!! Then this little immature girl (on the other hand, she is only 13) should think to study, shouldn't praise a loser, woman beater like Chris Brown (who, by the way, she listens to all the time) and being just a teen who still does not know anything of life!!!!! And greedy unnatural mother Katherine should think to raise Michael's children just like children and not like child stars teaching them that being in the limelight is the most important thing, she shouldn't allow her grandaughter to go out at night, she is only a 13 years old teen, shouldn't allow her even to work as she knows very well that Michael would be HORRIFIED since he did not want his children grew up as child stars!!!! I am very sorry for Michael, after he raised his children with so much love and after working so hard so protect their privacy, after he raised them like well-mannered, educated children, he does not deserve even this!!!! And even if so far she impeded her grandaughter to be in the video of that loser, woman beater, all has been originated by her who does not give to those children any discipline for the most part, and now that absurd video message is even being shopped, of course to further enrich their pockets by exploiting Michael's name, his legacy, his children and by throwing mud on everything is not being done by them bunch of parasites without any shame!!!!!

" the announcement was made during an online video chat with several friends in 2008" MJ died in 2009. So how could she discuss in in 2008 - TMZ = Incompetence

Get the date right, 2009, not 2008. Two guesses who is shopping this story to the press. Very sad.

Had Michael accepted positions for his decerning ear instead of his singing voice, would he still be alive today? (X Factor etc.)

I'm glad TMZ is on it again. There are indeed 3 fake songs on the "Michael" album which are "Breaking News", "Monster" and "Keep your head up" and there are nine more waiting to be released. All performed by Jason Malachi. Unfortunately, she is wrong about "Hold my hand" being fake or the whole album being fake so she can be easily discredited but she is right to some degree, there are fake songs on the "Michael" album.

I think this sad girl really thinks she is a Jackson. She appears to already have an attitude problem... She will learn the hard way.. She is already a PR hound..

TMZ are a bunch of total noobs...That album came out in 2010 not 2008. And if paris made this claim in 2008 MJ would have been still alive so why would they need an imposter?????? MJ the man that loved his fans dearly is gonna lip sink???? WHY HE WAS ALIVE!!!!!!! I meen seriusly TMZ get your facts straight there is no chance in hell MJ would let someone else record as him. My guess is someone made a hoax video of someone acting like paris and TMZ fell for it like a bunch of idiots. This artical is pathetic reporting and a sorry excuse to use MJ's name.

So Paris way back in 2008 predicted her father was going to die and then the estate would put out a fake CD???
I see TMZ has NOT changed a bit they write anything to make money.
By the way TMZ....Michael Jackson did not die until 2009...so I find it hard to believe Paris said this in 2008!

I wanna know why there are so many pathetic haters here...If you dont like MJ then dont read about him, dont look at him, and dont listen to his music. Mj bashing was cool for like 5 mins in the 90's move on with your lives and stop waisting your time hating on a dead man!!!!!!!! let the guy rest in peace.
