SEE UPDATE: The Michael Jackson Estate Statement re` Katherine Jackson's FundAnything.com

Post by Admin on Wed Dec 18, 2013 11:57 am

First topic message reminder :

12/20/13 UPDATE: The fundanything page for this "Remembering Michael" project has been removed. The video posted here no longer works. Looks like the MJE has stopped this.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I received another email regarding this project:

Hello:

The Estate of Michael Jackson has no involvement with the solicitation of funds for the completion of the purported documentary film being promoted on the FundAnything.com internet site. The Estate would never ask Michael’s fans to contribute their money to finance any speculative project.  

Furthermore, the site is offering merchandise bearing the Michael Jackson name, likeness and/or trademarks which are the intellectual property of the Estate of Michael Jackson and which may be legally exploited only by the Estate and by its authorized licensees.

The Estate will continue to release only the highest quality finished, professional projects showcasing the genius and humanity of Michael such as the This Is It film and the two very successful shows with Cirque du Soleil (Immortal and ONE).

Katherine In Hot Water Because Of Former Partner

Katherine In Hot Water Because Of Former Partner
by Roger Friedman

You cannot make this up. Remember Howard Mann? He was the guy who went into business with Michael Jackson’s mom, Katherine. He had the contents of the warehouse with a lot of Michael’s memorabilia. He bought it out of bankruptcy. Then he published a book with Mrs. Jackson and (no one really knows) 25,000 copies. The Michael Jackson estate sued him and won a defining settlement. The Estate got back all its copyrights. Mann was supposed to ante up $2.5 million. Everyone thought it was over.

The estate did not sue Mann’s girlfriend and/or business partner, Sonia Lowe, who was working with him on all those projects. Now it turns out — are you ready for this? — she’s behind the so-called documentary with Mrs. Jackson and Michael’s kids that’s being promoted on fundanything.com.

Lowe was foolish enough to list her credit as producer of the doc on LinkedIn. She also answered fans’ queries on Twitter about her involvement. She admitted that the documentary was her project and tried to explain crowdfunding to angry Jackson fans.

And lurking in the background, inevitably, is Howard Mann. I’ve sent them each emails. Neither of them has responded.

If Mann is operating through Lowe to get the doc made, he could be in violation of the settlement agreements he signed with the Michael Jackson estate last year.

Meantime, the proposed doc– called “Remembering Michael”–has so far raised only $3,736 toward a $3.2 million goal on fundanything.

Personal note: Keep in mind this is Roger Friedman writing this-ugh

I saw this info which includes Howard Weitzman's quotes about this "Remembering Michael" project. It is an excerpt from an article entitled: "Katherine Jackson Unveils Trailer For New Documentary Feat. Michael Jackson’s Three Kids" published 12/18/13.

Excerpt:
"According to TMZ, Michael Jackson’s mother is co-producing a documentary about the King of Pop and asking for fan donations to fund the project. Katherine needs to pay for the licensing of Michael’s image and music because she claims the MJ Estate “is being coldhearted and greedy by charging” the family."

(Note: This statement above is quoted-meaning they are saying KJ said that).

Continuing:

However, lawyer for the Estate Howard Weitzman insists that Katherine never reached out to him or any other person at the estate. He tells TMZ he’s not a fan of the idea because “the Estate would never ask Michael’s fans to contribute their money to finance any speculative project.”

If Katherine makes the documentary, the people it will likely hurt are Michael’s kids. That’s because THEY are the ultimate beneficiaries of the Estate, and if the Estate does an MJ documentary in the future (which is almost certain), it will probably be devalued by anything Katherine does.

And it still gets worse … Katherine and company have enlisted the help of Blanket, Paris and Prince to solicit funds from fans. It’s pretty clear — they don’t understand the implications of helping her out.

It’s a safe bet the Estate will not give Katherine permission. Weitzman says, “The Estate will continue to release only the highest quality finished, professional projects showcasing the genius and humanity of Michael such as the ‘This is It’ film and the 2 very successful shows with Cirque du Soleil.”
