The MJ soap opera continues...
Apparently, MJ didn't sign his will and it might've been signed by an impostor. At least according to MJ's brah. Michael Jackson’s brother is claiming that the King of Pop did not sign his 2002 will, saying that he was nowhere near the place the document was supposedly inked.
Younger brother Randy Jackson told TMZ that Michael was in New York July 5th through July 9th on a campaign against then Sony president Tommy Mottola at the time. The will, however, was signed July 7th at 5:00PM in Los Angeles.
The lawyer for Jackson’s estate, Howard Weitzman, told TMZ that the witnesses to the will were face-to-face with Jackson when he signed the document. However, Weitzman did not say if the will was signed in Los Angeles, even though the document refers to the city.
TMZ also spoke with Al Sharpton’s rep, Rachel Noerdlinger, who confirmed that both Sharpton and Jackson were protesting Mottola in New York together in 2002 on July 6th and July 8th. Through a statement Sharpton’s rep said, “We have reason to believe that Michael may have been in NY on the 7th and Rev. Sharpton will address this after he discusses it with the Jackson family.”
Michael Jackson suffered a fatal cardiac arrest on June 25th. Prior to his death, he was preparing for a series of 50 concerts to be held at the O2 Arena in London called “This Is It.” A film documenting the concert series, titled Michael Jackson's This Is It, is scheduled to be released on October 28th.
