According to TMZ a video exists of Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, telling friends that her father is not the one singing on the album “Michael,” released after his death. For those who doubted the album’s authenticity, this report is sure to reignite the controversy.
Reportedly, Paris made the revelation during an online video chat with several friends in 2010, just before the “Michael” album was released. That album contains several previously unreleased tracks allegedly performed by Michael Jackson.
The video chat was recorded, according to TMZ, and Paris joked about the footage eventually “leaking” to the Internet.
Paris made the remarks in the midst of rumors that Michael Jackson’s parts on the “Michael” album were actually performed by an Jackson sound-alike named Jason Malachi . However, both Jason and Sony denied the allegations.
During the video chat, Paris played one of the songs from the album, “Hold My Hand,” and one of her friends asks why the singer doesn’t sound like Michael.
Paris replied, “It’s not him … the whole album isn’t even him!! Go online … go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That’s him!!”
She continues, “I should know if it’s him or not because he would sing to me all the time.”
TMZ reports a recording of Paris’ video message is being shopped to various media outlets and that “Offers are on the table.”
