  • You mean…………

    the executors of his estate will receive 90% of the fee. His children won’t see any of that money.

    Says they will establish a charity with it. The kids get 40% of his estate. If this is considered part of the estate then they would get 40% of their 90% (I would think). The court will see to it that monies are placed in trust for those kids. There are laws protecting the children’s money and this is a high profile case so people will be looking out. I for one would love to see the footage.

    U.K. newspaper The Mirror reported that the Michael Jackson’s children will get £300m in royalties from final show footage….That’s how it’s going to happen. And it is the way it should be. MJ has left his children in good situation. And this will help the Neverland to keep MJ’s name. More than that we love to see MJ’s last moments. And that’s live footage too.

    Redemption: The Truth Behind the Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegation is the book that proves Michael Jackson was framed in 1993. The author, Geraldine Hughes, was the legal secretary of the attorney who represented the 13 year old accuser’s father. She witnessed an elaborate extortion scheme that was launched as child molestation when MJ refused to pay the $20 million ransom.
    In loving memory of Michael Jackson, his family and children, I am determined to clear MJ’s name for once and for all. Get your copy of Redemption on Amazon.com/shops/hughespublishing.

    I believe that MJ was framed both in 1993 and 2003 on the cases. Also the reporter who interviewed him at Neverland in 2003.
    Also, the last author on the new book who try making the fake story of MJ’s life that just released after his death. Those blood money they cheated from MJ and the others now are turning into sword and their love ones having bad diseases that now are destroying them. They are now condemned and cursed.
    Rest in Peace, Michael, you are now above those bad people who when you were alive they were twisted and lied and cheated.
    All my loing memory for your kindness to the others, always

    What A Beautiful Person Michael Is.
    I hope Bashir and Halperin share a seat on their ride to HELL. WHY is kindness,goodness, and gentleness misunderstood. Debbie Rowe knows SHE was employed as a surrogate and only that. She was treated with respect, she was paid well, she NEVER has to work again. There is no one who would believe Michael would engage in a real marriage with her, Michael didn’t operate on public opinion. Rowe volunteered for a price, they obviously cut a deal, he married her so his beloved children would be born in wedlock…and she was outta there! His love was Lisa Marie , and I would bet, had Brooke been older,,,,who knows. Michael wanted his children, his charities, his work, and wanted to have peace. Let us cherish the MUSIC, and abd the videos.. Michael will forever be the sexiest performer on stage…Thank You

    Michael Jackson will be remembered for his huge contribution to music and for his exceptional performances as well as his innovations in video and dance. Those who lied and lie to gain money off MJ will be cursed until the day they die. Michael was the most generous, honest, humble, kind and gentle person. He will forever be loved, the haters are just jealous people who have nothing better to do than spread their negativity. These people will have their karma one day. Long live MJ’s music, spirit, legacy and message to the world to make it a better one.
