CALL TO ARMS:

MJ fam - here we are in 2019, the 10-year anniversary of my Uncle's passing. We all knew this would be a difficult year for so many of us worldwide. Instead of being able to mourn and properly celebrate and honor Michael Jackson, we are, again, being forced to educate the media and the general public with the evidence-based truth about him.
Once again, we have to defend Michael Jackson's name and legacy from vicious and calculated lies.  We can no longer sit back and wait for the 'right thing' to be reported or for someone else to step in and champion our cause. This is on us – fans, friends and family. I know that the unanimous acquittals and the FBI's 10-year investigation (resulting in my Uncle’s complete exoneration) should have been enough. The worst thing we can do is let this continued slander go unchallenged.
I know that when we as a group are united, we are unstoppable. 
So I need your help.

BACKGROUND:


Michael Jackson was arguably the greatest musical entertainer of all time. His success and influence was felt all over the world, from the US to the UK, from India to Egypt. He broke down racial barriers and changed culture forever. He was one of the most famous human beings who ever lived. For the last 15 years of his life he was subjected to false, malicious allegations of child abuse. He successfully defended himself against those allegations and died an innocent and exonerated man, but they took their toll nonetheless.

Years after he was killed by his doctor, two men who had resolutely defended Michael's innocence in life, tried and failed, to win financial settlements from his posthumous estate. After having their bogus abuse allegations (undermined by a wealth of evidence demonstrating the contrary) dismissed by the court, they have now turned to HBO, the UK's Channel 4 and the Sundance Film Festival. These three reputable organizations have sadly compromised their Brand’s integrity by announcing they will provide a platform for a 'documentary', through which these two accusers - who have accrued large legal debts to the estate they tried and failed to extort - are still seeking to profit from their already discredited stories.

Michael Jackson died an innocent, vindicated man. The world needs to understand this most important and basic fact. The world also needs to understand the damage that is done to legitimate victims of abuse when self-confessed liars are not only allowed to profit from false allegations, but are given a platform to pontificate their fraudulent claims.
In an effort to settle this injustice - and to create a historic tome that will be a resource for anyone interested and willing to learn THE TRUTH about Michael Jackson’s indisputable innocence– I’m creating a documentary series that explodes the myths once and for all.


ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY SERIES:

This explosive documentary series will conclusively destroy decades of salacious myths which have been told and sold about Michael Jackson ad nauseam. In doing so, we will shine a light on the corruption within the media and entertainment industries which conceived and perpetuated them. Falsehoods like:

“I heard Michael Jackson paid a settlement to avoid a criminal trial for child abuse” Wrong.

“I heard the boy described Michael Jackson’s genitalia accurately” Wrong.

“I heard Michael Jackson paid over 200 million to as many as 20 victims” Wrong.

Almost everything the public thinks it knows about Michael Jackson is wrong.

For decades, the media has dealt in sensationalized stories about the King of Pop. Could you blame them? He is, quite simply, the biggest celebrity the world has ever known. Those sensationalized stories earned the media billions of dollars.

But at what cost?

Michael has been dead now for almost a decade, but many of the most damaging fake stories remain part of the public consciousness, causing continual damage to his legacy – not to mention his children, who have had to grow up watching the world embrace and perpetuate these horrific falsehoods. Tarnished again by HBO, Channel 4 and the Sundance Film Festival, all of whom have gone into business with two proven liars and purgers who are seeking to personally profit from already discredited abuse allegations.

The time has come to take action and formally correct the record - before it's too late. The history books are already being written and many of them read like grim fairy tales. Provable falsehoods are recycled time and again as facts. Remember, we only know Mozart, Bach, Debussy or Beethoven by what we have read from available resources. Hundreds of years from now, people will look up Michael Jackson's name and music. We owe it to future generations to provide a resource, built on evidence-based facts, that will stand the test of time.

This documentary series will be the definitive historic record of the most discussed aspects of Michael Jackson's private life, placing the most controversial stories under the microscope, tracing their origins and dissecting how and why the media's narrative diverged from the truth. Unlike decades of sleazy tabloid stories, which were propped up by washed-up former friends and employees in return for fat paychecks from the media, this documentary series will feature exclusive interviews with first-hand witnesses who have never spoken publicly before and are doing so now purely out of a desire to set the record straight, not because somebody has offered them $50,000 to say something controversial. The series will also draw on thousands of pages of official, legal documents, which tell a completely different story then the one which played out on tabloid newspapers’ front pages.

The episodes will not sugarcoat Michael's difficult life. He experienced a lot of physical and emotional pain and that had sad repercussions. To deny that would be just as dishonest as the media's sensationalist version of events.

Equally, this series will not shy away from pointing the finger of blame for many of Michael's darkest hours where it truly belongs. It will reveal how Michael was betrayed, entrapped, extorted and abused throughout his life>  You will hear the stories that the media never bothered to tell you about because of their obsessive preoccupation   of mercilessly bullying and ridiculing him.

What's the real story behind the 1993 sexual abuse claim?

What is the real truth about that 1994 settlement?

What really happened in the courtroom during his 2005 trial?

What is the real motivation and who are the players behind Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck?

And, crucially, how - and why - did the media mislead you at every turn?

The answers to these questions will shock and disgust you. In fact, this series could prove to be the most searing exposé of media and showbiz corruption that the world has ever seen.


FUNDING: 

“Why should I donate? Can't so and so fund this?”

While trying to secure funding, I have looked into several alternative opportunities and scenarios. Unfortunately , any corporation and/or outlet with the available funding would, most probably, want creative and editorial input. The purpose of this project is to present a factual delivery of events from people that lived it and knew it - including me. 

Unfortunately, experience have left me mistrustful of external influences and I know the majority of you feel the same.  Michael Jackson's true history needs to be told without manipulation and restrictions. We need to be able to tell the story, free and clear, without biased media.

WHO I AM:

I am the oldest nephew of Michael Jackson. I had the privilege to have grown up extremely close to my uncle and was always a loyal friend and ally to him throughout his entire life. I also had a front seat to what the negative media and allegations put him through.  I lived with him during the whole 2005 trial. 

As a sexual abuse victim (from my uncle Chuck on my mom’s side of the family), I know what it means to be a survivor. I also know what kind of damage sexual misconduct leaves upon the victims.  This unique position makes me even more determined and qualified to make the truth, the whole truth known about my uncle Michael’s false allegations.  

My uncle’s last words to me were… 
“After this, we’re doing films.”
Never did I think that a decade later necessity would require me to direct a film about his proven innocence.


WHEN WILL THIS BE DONE: 

My plan is to start immediately and have the series completed as quickly as possible. This will be a huge undertaking for me, especially with a 2 month old baby girl. However it is also my absolute honor and I feel duty-bound to dedicate 2019 to setting the record straight with this series.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO USE THE MONEY FOR:

As many of you will know, a documentary of this size and scale will not be cheap.

What will your contribution help to fund?

- Hiring key players for the production team.
- Travel expenses for filmed interviews and meetings.
- Verifying stories and new information. 
- Securing licensing and video clips.
- Video and audio editing.
- A comprehensive, international marketing and PR campaign (live and digital) that will make it impossible for audiences, targeted and otherwise, to ignore.
- Distribution, locally and internationally.


MJFam, this is what we have been waiting for and the time is now. Join me on this crusade to bring justice, once and for all, to the legacy of Michael Jackson.

Update May 18th

We recently hit $150K!
I am so thankful that all of you are still fighting hard for justice when it comes to my uncle’s name. We are really changing history with the truth and we will continue to do shape it.

Busy busy busy.....
Between the meetings, the phone calls and the interviews (yes I’m still doing interviews) I’ve been really busy. But busy is good, and I am happy for the interest in the truth being shown.

Interviews....
I am still doing interviews and have a couple of important podcast interviews lined up next week.

Outside investor(s)....
Next week we also will have all we need to seriously approach some outside investors and money people that have already shown interest. This is necessary to obtain the remainder of the budget in a reasonable time.
As many people in Hollywood would tell you, it is very important to vet these people because you are tied and linked to them for the rest of the project’s life.
My main 2 criteria for outside investors are that
1. They believe 100 percent in my uncle’s innocence. No wavering here. I demand this from everyone working on this project with me.
2. They let this story be told the way it needs to be. No outside agendas, period. This is for the preservation of my uncle’s legacy.

Distractions?...
As you might know...Prince, Bigi and I launched a film review show and channel on YouTube recently.
But don’t worry, our YouTube show is only two hours out of the week and it is a great way for me to collaborate and spend time with my cousins. Plus we get to talk movies, like I use to do with my uncle.
In no way will this show ever slow down this MJ project. This project is priority.


Last but not least....
I truly feel like my uncle Michael is guiding this project and I want to thank you guys for your continued belief in it and me.

This is beyond HIStory. This is His Legacy.

Here’s a quick update for this past week.
It’s May 12th and I feel really good about the forward momentum and also what’s going on behind the scenes.
Each day more and more people are realizing that Leaving Neverland is one big fat lie. I am also grateful that Madonna took a pro stance defending my uncle Michael. However there is still a lot to do.
This project, as I have stated many times before, will focus on and debunk the biggest lies and rumors that the media has been carelessly recycling for decades.

Good News:
Some major allies have offered their help and support. I am constantly amazed at and reminded of the love and support for my uncle that has come from all over the world.

Phone Chats:
I have had some very interesting and important phone conversations this last week. I have a couple more in upcoming days.
The more people I talk to, the more I am sure that my approach will be the right one.

Watching:
I’ve also have been watching Documentary after Documentary on my free time. Some of them really good, some of them not.
One thing is for sure, this project has to be high quality and be at the standard my uncle would have demanded.

Tests:
Last but not least, I have done a couple of camera tests this past week and have some more next week.

I truly appreciate you guys supporting my uncle and wanting to see justice.

May 1st Update:

First I want to thank all of you for your continued support and donations. Together we will cement my uncle Michael’s incredible legacy and the truth.
Please remember, this project is not in direct competition with any other pro Michael Jackson videos, documentaries or specials. Actually, the more the merrier.. And I welcome all of them.

From now on there will be weekly updates. This first one will obviously be much bigger than the next ones because there hasn’t been an update in awhile.

One of the most asked question is, have we started the project yet?

The short answer is Yes. However we are still in the “boring” part of production. And there is A LOT of pre-production.
Writing, Budgeting, Hiring, ROI (for possible investors), Researching. Paperwork…etc
The good news is we are almost at the end of this stage.

I didn’t want to actually start filming and then run out of money and not finish this. It’s too important. That is why we have been a little slower in the pre production phase.

More planning and smarter planning will save us lots of money and your donations will be better utilized.

Will this even be completed and will it be this year?

Definitely it will be completed, We have everything we need to shoot and edit this. (Equipment wise and personnel wise)
However licensing news clips, music, and personal/home videos will not be free or cheap.

Also we know that we can’t count on the media to promote any positive Michael stories. Thus, extra funds will go into online marketing and promotion.

So who’s involved?

I can’t share that list yet, but I can say that I am not doing this project alone. There are some really dedicated people on board. Helping me steer this ship. Also I can say that the amount of people who were very close to my uncle, who have volunteered to help and/or be interviewed is beyond even my expectations. This movie will do my uncle justice.

What is the tone? Is this a direct rebuttal to Leaving Neverland?

This is bigger than Leaving Neverland. This is about all the past lies and allegations that have unfairly plagued my uncle’s life while he was alive and infected his legacy even after his death. This movie is about answers, the facts, and the truth.


So where is the money going?

Have you heard of the saying: Fast,Good,Cheap - Pick any two

Well I am choosing Fast and Good.

I am still aiming to complete the movie this year if all goes according to plan. However I don’t want to sacrifice on the production quality and accuracy. Therefore things will cost more then if we took our time.

I want this to stand the test of time, like my uncle. I want this to be what people reference hundreds of years from now when they look up the legendary Michael Jackson.

Time for another update.
I just want everyone to know that this project officially started weeks ago. I have not stopped gathering names or info since then. I have some key people already onboard and have plenty more still to go after.
For those of you who have emailed or messaged me some names to be in this... a lot of those names were already contacted and have agreed to help out. :-)
Some I still have to reach out to though. So keep suggesting, I am always open to outside ideas.

However, make no mistake, I have a VERY CLEAR picture of what this needs to be and what it doesn't need to be.
I am also being secretive not because I don't want to keep all of you in the loop. It's because there are some big and powerful forces that don't want this or any pro Michael project ever to happen, so we have to keep certain things closer to the chest for now.
I truly appreciate all the donations, messages, and press I have received for this project so far.
And I will promise you one thing. This is going to be bigger and better than any of you expect.
