Latoya Jackson has been asserting in her recent interviews to promote her book that
the Executers conspired to murder Michael. But today Katherine released this statement:

"It is only natural for people who loved Michael, including family members, to be suspicious about the circumstances surrounding Michael’s untimely death. So far
I have not seen one shred of evidence that anyone associated with Michael’s estate conspired to kill him.

"If such evidence ever comes to my attention, I will be the first to bring those facts to light.  No one loved Michael more than I loved him, but no one should be falsely accused, as Michael was, of a crime they did not commit"

Yes, it is VERY imprudent for Latoya to run her mouth so recklessly but I felt that instead of releasing a public statement, Katherine should have advised Latoya privately.

Then I realized Katherine's thinly veiled motive: She is ingratiating herself to the
Estate Executers because she needs their approval to proceed with a “tribute”.

Katherine, Tito, Marlon, Latoya and Jackie just held a Press Conference today announcing a “tribute” on October 8, 2011 (2.5 weeks into Murray criminal Trial)

This is how the ticketing will work: you register expressing your interest in buying a ticket
for $89 - $470 plus shipping.  In comparison, the highest ticket price for 'This Is It' concert was $100 but then again this tribute will be…ahem…better than a Michael Jackson concert: "the biggest and best concert in the world".

Registering for a ticket won’t guarantee you a ticket. Surreptitiously, Global Live wants you to donate to charities in addition to the already extortionate ticket price. They profit from the tickets but they can act Holier Than Thou, claiming that proceedings are going to charities. In reality, the pledge comes out of YOUR pocket, not theirs. If one of these charities is the current “Heal the World Foundation”, they can fogetaboutit!

Ticketing for this "tribute" is reminiscent of Jackson 5 Victory Tour ticketing. The brothers received tremendous backlash from fans. Michael had to intervene to change the ticketing! Fans already donate to various charities in Michael's name ALL YEAR!
To set pledging as a requisite for getting tickets is EXTORTION! Michael would be horrified that his own family led by a so-called “perfection” is robbing his fans!

They claim that part of the proceeds will go to a trust fund for Michael's children. Once again, Jacksons exploit MJ3 for their own financial gain! We don't buy the "trust fund" smoke screen! It is the Estate's job to ensure that the kids are taken care of financially.
Michael Jackson Estate IS the trust fund for Paris, Prince & Blanket.

Executors for Michael’s estate were unaware of the planned tribute and have not been approached to authorize the use of his name” said the Estate’s spokesperson.

The Estate has not been contacted and is not involved with Global Live Events in the UK tribute concert announced today”  said the Estate Executers.

We are expecting that the Executors will announce their decision soon. I fear that in exchange for a cut for the Estate, they will let this selling of Michael’s corpse to proceed.

Michael Jackson fans WILL start a petition to block this tribute but we will wait, REALLY hoping that the Estate Executors will be sensible enough to put an end to it.

This is fans' attempt to communicate with the Executors that Michael Jackson fans
do NOT feel that this is a proper time for a tribute that will take place 2.5 weeks into
the Conrad Murray Criminal trial. We feel that the hype would take away from the trial.

It has been saddening that Jackson Family can’t stop themselves from exploiting Michael at EVERY opportunity they get. We would like the Estate Executors to put an immediate end to this and not green-light further exploitations by approving this so-called tribute.

1-   Executors’ reaction to this “tribute” will single-handedly set precursor for future behaviour by Jacksons. If Branca creates a monster by saying yes to this "tribute" and then Jacksons continue exploiting Michael Jackson brand in the future, fans refuse to hear the Executors' whining! Their reaction now will send one of two messages:

“Hey, what part of 'the Michael Jackson brand belongs solely to the Estate' don't you get? You are out of line, making deals that you have no authority making and THEN coming to us on the 11th Hour for approval. It is illegal, we told you so too many times! So, you will not proceed with this tribute! And if you continue making such deals involving Michael Jackson brand, we WILL litigate you

ORYeah, what the Hell, go for it, my greedy fellows, exploit Michael and his children. And we will consider this case by case and continue dealing with the bull$hit you bring to our table on a regular because we have nothing better to do"

When the criminal Trial is over and fans & family had proper time to come to terms
with their grief and we are in ACCEPTANCE stage, then it is appropriate to organize a tribute fit for a King, backed the Estate. We definitely don't want any tribute organized by Jackson Family. Merely changing the date/terms of this "tribute" doesn't suffice. We want "Michael Forever tribute" by Global Live to be shut down completely!

As per Jermaine & Randy Jackson statements, some of the Family members expressed that it wouldn't be a good idea to schedule the tribute during the trial but they went for it anyway. This shows that this company doesn't care about Michael's interest or his fans!
We REFUSE to do business with Global Live!

2-  Executors can gain support even from those who haven’t supported 'em so far by demonstrating to us that you WILL take good care of Michael’s brand, even if it means protecting it from his own mother, which we know is a difficult but the right decision.

We feel the Executors have been unnecessarily lenient with the Jackson Family. Branca sued a fan for merely having a website but turns a blind eye to Katherine, what gives? She misused her position as Michael’s mother far too long! While we have the utmost compassion for Katherine because her son is dead, it seems she needs to be reminded that her son is dead. She doesn’t act like a grieving mother, she acts like a rapacious mother who exploits her son’s death! History is documenting this disgrace and it taints Michael's memory! John Branca is slacking on what he appointed himself to do!

We request from the Executors to PLEASE do something to once and for all prevent Jackson Family from exploiting Michael Jackson & his children. You have taken legal action to ensure that various people/entities don't exploit MJ,
why the special treatment for Jackson Family? You want them to get the point that Michael's name/likeness belongs solely to his Estate, litigate them already!

"We can't take it, we've already had enough"

As John Branca already knows, Michael and his fans had a bond unsimilar to any other celebrity and his/her fans. Michael always communicated with us, listened to us and catered to our wants. It would be deal breaker if the Executors change the dynamic that we are accustomed to and ignore our sentiments. We are the customers and we express unequivocally that we definitely do NOT want any further merchandise/event by Jackson Family under the guise of “tribute” and we definitely do NOT want any tribute now.

With or without the approval of the Estate Executors, Michael Jackson Fan community who has ALWAYS acted in HIS best interest without having any hidden motives protest this "tribute". We would like the Executors to be the voice of reason and stop this event!

Michael Jackson Worldwide Fans


July 25, 2011

Today's press conference in Los Angeles announced a tribute concert to Michael to be attended and supported by the Jackson Family. However, we want to make clear that this does not reflect the position of the entire family.

While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honors our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death. As everyone knows, those proceedings commence September 20th, and this "Michael Forever" concert takes place in Cardiff, Wales, UK,

on October 8th. In light of this, we feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event and its promoter, Global Live.

The decision to proceed with this concert disrespects opinions and wishes expressed in the strongest terms to Global Live during conversations in April when this event was presented to the majority of the family as an idea already in its advanced stages.

There will come a time and place for an amazing and deserving tribute to Michael. But we feel that the most important tribute we can give to our brother

at this time is to seek justice in his name

"They have been loyal. They are activists. They will fight with you about me"
~MICHAEL JACKSON about his fans

What did the fans mean to Michael?

Dieter Wiesner: "Everything! They were his family. They were his crutch and they gave him strength. More than any other thing. And he loved them above all things.
And he told this to his children too. Every time, in any place where we stayed in hotels,
he showed his fans to his kids and explained to them what the fans mean to him.
The family has simply no connection to Michael’s fanbase. They don't quite understand how much Michael’s fans really meant to him"

Weren’t his siblings & parents rather his support? Mainly during the trial days?

Dieter Wiesner: "They were there but Michael’s strength and comfort came clearly from the fans. He loved them beyond words. He respected his siblings and parents and loved them. He always cared for their wellbeing and that they wouldn’t miss anything. But the closeness and love, it came rather from the fans. Always, when he said that he loves them and ‘I love you more’, it was the simple truth”

Branca needs to do his job and shut this sham of a concert down immediately!!

The Estate is here to secure Michael's interests, not the family

I know many are hurt today by the actions of the Jackson family, please try to remember this is just who they are. Stay focused on Michael, WE are all he has! I am only surprised of one thing and that is how long it has taken for most to see the Jacksons for who they are. Now we must move on, Michael Jackson needs his fans to be there for him.

I wonder if the Jacksons have any idea how much power the MJ fanbase has

So wait a tribute concert in the middle of the trial?

Tribute during the trial??? Oh wait, I forgot what family we are dealing with

Never mind there is a murder trial in October! Let's Party????

A man is in court for killing their brother/son in LA and they will be singing/dancing/partying in Wales!

The Jackson Family = A House Divided

The Jacksons have ABSOLUTELY no class

This "Tribute" speaks volumes about the priorities within the family Jackson

I swear... the Jaxns are experts in the field of "hot mess!"

This "Tribute" thing generated an understanding as 2 WHY he avoided his fam

What ethical performer will be a part of this concert during the trial?

Unbelievable that Michael was related to all these crazy greedy people

Betrayal, betrayal betrayal , even in death, by his own family.
That's it! I wash my hands completely this time

I worry they'll brainwash Michael's kids and they'll become like them too

I think a roller coaster built and operated by the Jacksons is their best bet...
since dealing with them is like the ride of your life!

Will Howard Mann be rapping @ this tribute concert?

Jaxn fam needs 2 remember is that FANS made them. FANS can break them 2

Poor Michael, seeing everything his Family and especially his mother are doing :(

"Justice For MJ"? No! It's "Just Us For MJ" :'(

There are vultures....and then there is the Jackson Family

PPB don't NEED another Trust. But Michael's FAMILY apparently do!

They will profit somehow! And why do they think they need another trust fund for PPB?

Which artists that Michael admire so much will perform? Most of them are dead..

I trust NO Jackson. They have all used Michael for the same reason... MONEY!

I'm so sorry Michael... But not liking your family no longer cuts it. I HATE them!

This Tribute/charity scam is so full of ish, it's :(

Had they not boycotted the album that money would be there for his children?

Sometimes hate can be justifiable. This is one such moment. They are HYPOCRITES!!!

THIS is the reason why I HATE that "family"! Not justice for Michael but $... $... $!

Tribute Concert? Bitch please, I have a MJ Court case to concentrate on.

Makes me wanna scream! We seek Justice4MJ and the family wants to throw a concert

Clearly, the Jackson family needs a solid, reliable connection to the fanbase. Whoever has been doing THAT job, has done it poorly.

It would be honorable if they did it for his children but why then not approach the estate?

There was a strong hint that the Michael Forever Tribute Concert would include a reunion of the Michael Jackson's brothers" Now things become much clearer! I just can’t support this family anymore!!! I'm here for Michael and Michael only!

Who the HELL would plan a Tribute concert - during the Conrad Murray Trial! #fuckery

This is the MOST outrageous thing  I have ever witnessed!

How can 1 family be so out of touch w/ what Michael's fans want & what is right thing to do 4 justice & his legacy! A concert is not IT!

@latoyajackson why do you all test us and make it hard for us to support your family?

Boycott this! This is the SAME family that wanted the “Michael” sunk, now sink this!

A tribute concert for MJ DURING THE TRIAL?? Disgusting!

Most of the Jackson family should be ashamed. Get your asses in the courtroom!

Sorry Jacksons, we can´t make it cause we´ll be in courtroom for the killing of your son!

What other family of a loved one who was killed holds a concert during the trial of killer?

The family should be in the courtroom and NOT on a stage.

I just wish none of them would be out promoting their endeavors during the trial

Jermaine's book is being released right before the trial. If he goes on a promotion tour during Trial, I would call him hypocrite

fuck Jermaine. His tribute was only ok because HE was planning it

For over 40 yrs., I have been a Michael Jackson fan, and proud 2 be one, but his family is an outright disrespectful disgrace

Michael Jackson tribute concert announced. Jackson's vaults empty again? #smoothcriminals

Jackson family fails again...but Michael is not alone, we'll fight for #justice4MJ

I almost want to laugh at this if it wasn't so sad and frankly, so DISRESPECTFUL

Carla Hibberd I don’t think Michael has been sitting on a cloud thinking ‘why doesn’t someone do a Tribute Concert for me’

Manu Emandems Just waiting for the Estate to shut this Money Grabbing Mess down.
I cannot believe you people!!!!

Pez Greaves What a bloody Joke. You don't care about Michael forever, you care about MONEY FOREVER. Listen to Track 7, Disc 2, HIStory!!! I'm sick to death of this family cashing in. Katherine, the day you sat down with Oprah and told her his nose look like a matchstick was the final straw. You want money? GET A JOB!!!

Sam Bol Jackson family is a DISGRACE!! Michael didn't deserve these fucking bloodsuckers as family. No wonder he stayed away. He'd rather spent holidays with the Cascios than these money hungry fools. You are all an embarrassment to the memory of Michael. No self respected fan will support this scam. It is the Estate's executors DUTY to stop unlawful use of MJ's name...they need to put a stop to this NOW!!!

Wilma Ballsdrop What would be the BEST tribute for Michael?

Mayah Thomas This is getting beyond a joke. When are they gonna see that no amount of money can win us over. You can't put a price on how much the fans love Michael which is why they are trying to get us to pay for some under-organized piece of crap

Jessica Morrison This is not about Michael or his fans, this is about $ $ $

Jayne Beaumont Nobody is denying the fact that Michael deserves a tribute concert but to having it during the trial is beyond disgusting and insensitive to his fans. Since 25th June 2009, I have given several members of the Jackson family the benefit of the doubt about many of the choices they have made but this takes the biscuit. They would rather prance around on a stage than go to the courthouse during the trial???? It may sound harsh, but now I have washed my hands of many of the Jackson family. I am here for Michael and ONLY Michael and that's the way it will stay. Shame on you!

Andrés Salinas They are very clever. This way, they keep the money from the ticket sales plus they can say some money goes to charities, which is ONLY the money that fans give directly but not from them!!!

Matilde Beatriz Latini This is a disgrace,for the love of Michael,please discontinue this

Paul Harold What in the name of God are you all thinking? Your son/brother's doctor is on trial for killing him and you have a concert? Why not justice 1st? Please cancel this!
