Michael Jackson Fan Sues Estate, Claims MJ Doesn’t Sing Enough On 2010 Record
The late King of Pop appears to have some pretty intense fans. One is reportedly suing Michael Jackson's Estate due to the fact that she believes the singer was not the LEAD singer on three of the tracks on 2010's 'Michael' – the first album following Jackson's death.
The unnamed fan went to the LA courts just yesterday and filed a suit, which she is hoping becomes a class action, stating that she purchased 'Michael' back in 2011, but was rather unimpressed – and irate – when she discovered MJ's presence was lacking.
Proving her sanity even more so, the suit claimed she also hired an audio expert to further analyze the CD. This expert solidified her theory that Michael, in fact, did not sing the lead vocals on 3 tracks: "Breaking News," "Monster" and "Keep Your Head Up."
Despite such suits and allegations, the Estate's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, has previously stated that the King of Pop DID provide lead vocals for every track on the album.
Should the allegation actually turn into a class action suit, Jackson's Estate would need to dole out some serious dough to every single person who purchased either the album or, at least, any of the tracks that did not hold Jackson as the lead vocalist.
