Michael Jackson Estate Sues Memorabilia Company Over Singer’s Photos
If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Michael Jackson fans are learning that the hard way after finding out they got duped by a memorabilia company.
According to TMZ, Premiere Props illegally sold photos of the late singer, although the rights were owned by his company. The shots are of the Jackson's Victory Tour, which featured all the brothers back in 1984. MJ's estate is now filing a suit.
And to add to the scheme, Premiere Props told buyers they would be able to own the rights if they bought the photos, which is completely false. Fans paid between $200 and $2,000 to secure those rights.
Through the courts, Jackson's estate will attempt to halt all the profits the company made from the auction so far, and ultimately stop Premiere Props from selling additional photos.
