An enraged Michael Jackson fan is suing the legendary singer's estate for allegedly tricking fans by releasing fake songs under his name.
Michael Jackson Fan Sues Estate over Posthumous Album ‘Michael’, Claims Pop Icon Did Not Sing Lead Vocals...
As Fashion Times reports, the plaintiff, identified as Vera Sernova, has filed a class action suit in a Los Angeles court, claiming that three songs on the album, "Breaking News," "Monster" and "Keep Your Head Up," do not feature Michael's vocals, but rather a voice of an imitator.
Vera has also asked for the help of an audio expert, who backed her claims after a thorough analysis. Seeing that we have a class action suit at hand, if the accusations are proven to be truth in court, Jackson's estate will be ordered to pay everyone who had ever purchased the album, or any of the songs in question.
According to the same source, the Estate's attorney has claimed that Michael's vocals are featured throughout the album. Back in 2010, Jackson's children, Paris and Prince, have stated being "adamant" about Sony releasing fake music under their father's name.
Meanwhile, in 2010, prior to the release of the album-which included 10-12 never-before-heard songs from the late pop star - MJ's kids, Paris and Prince, have alleged that the songs Sony will be releasing are fake versions. They claimed that they were present while their father was recording many of the tracks and were "adamant" that the versions on the new album were performed by a sound-a-like, according to PerezHilton.
An insider reportedly claimed that five tracks in question were recorded at the home of producer Eddie Cascio in New Jersey, and Michael and his children stayed with him and his family for four months during recording in 2007.
