Malcolm X

Family Fight Over Diary

By Any Means Necessary

EXCLUSIVE

1108_Malcolm-X_gettyMalcolm X is so controversial, he's still causing controversy nearly 50 years after his assassination.

Malcolm's heirs filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- in which they claim a company called Third World Press announced last month it would release The Malcolm X Diaries.  Third World claimed Malcolm's kids gave it the right to publish, but the kids beg to differ.

The diaries purport to provide a view of Malcolm's mind and his agenda for change.

Malcolm's heirs are suing to stop the publication. They also want money.

Usually things are never how they seem in the news. Im sure theres another truthful version of this story. Malcolm X deserves full and complete honesty, and so does his beloved Betty Shabazz and their children.

I did hear that their legal issues were about something else, but not money at all.
