Michael Jackson Estate Settles with Heal the World

Michael Jackson Estate Settles with Heal the World
34 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

The Michael Jackson Estate has settled its lawsuit against the Heal the World Foundation, and the Estate is now copacetic with the charity using Michael Jackson's name.



The Estate had sued Heal the World, on grounds it had no right to use MJ's name to solicit money.  But we've learned there was a secret meeting yesterday between Katherine Jackson's new lawyer, Perry Sanders, and Estate lawyer Howard Weitzman.

The attorneys settled the beef, so Heal the World can now use Michael's name and likeness, and Katherine will sit on the Board of Directors of the charity.

The lawyers are going to court this AM to dismiss the lawsuit.

Sometimes I just think that all this stuff is to just keep Michael's name out there...and remind us of the GOOD he did.

Where does Katherine find all the time to raise all these children, write a book, meet with her lawyer about EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN with all these lawsuits and stuff, give interviews, deal with Joe (which im sure is a full time job), cope with the "loss" of her son and the stress of the trial, and now sit on the board of directors on top of the many other responsibilities she has?? She's 80 years old for pete's sake! She deserves the woman of the year award!  :lol:

When I saw her photo evry time I say to myself Michael looks so much like her...at least this is what I think, Michael looks like her. She is a beautiful woman, even at that age.And such a strong woman, to rise 9 children, 6 of them boys, I know I couldn't do that. Only if I think how it is to have 9 children I'm scared. I have only one and it's not easy  :? .

She's very strong.

And when I see her I can't help  it, I think how could Michael die when his parents made it to 80... longevity is genetic , even if not all scientiests agree, but in real life I see it happening.

Because if Michael did die, he did not die of a natural death.  He died because chemicals were introduced into his body which stopped his breathing.

IOW Katherine is Michael's business representative and spokesperson. Guess who has the final word on business behind the (red) curtain ;)

Is there a possibility that Michael is hiding in this Beverly Hills Hotel maybe?
Maybe he bought it and has got a master apartment there....  :?

Hm, hm, hm.....VERY possible.  Seems to be on of the hoax headquarters.

Funny how we had two reports- and now the Estate (and thus Michael) has taken back what was his from the beginning. :) VERY nice!

Sometimes, actually most of the times I think the same with you Ford.

Until I see or know for sure that Michael himself is on this board, HTWF will never get another dime from me.  Sorry.  But that’s my decision.

Contradicting news that Estate does not allow Heal the World use Michael's name.  :?

Michael Jackson Lawyers 'Take Back' Trademarks
           

Michael Jackson's estate executors have dismissed reports they've agreed to allow bosses of the Heal the World Foundation to use the King of Pop's name, insisting they are "taking back" all the Thriller hitmaker's trademarks.

Reports on Tuesday (19Apr11) suggested officials at the organisation had worked out a deal with Jackson's executors on Monday (18Apr11) allowing them to utilise the pop superstar's moniker.

But lawyers involved in the case have now spoken out, insisting Heal the World Foundation owner Melissa Johnson is barred from using Jackson's name.

A spokesman for the estate executors tells WENN, "The estate is taking back the Heal the World Foundation and all of the Michael Jackson trademarks it allegedly owned. The Michael Jackson Estate owns the Heal the World name, and neither Melissa Johnson nor her companies will ever be able to use Michael Jackson's name or the Heal the World name."

Please find below a statement from the Co-Executors of the Estate.

-------------------------------------

Please let the fans know that we are aware of the many questions from the fan community regarding the recent settlement of the HTWF lawsuit. The Estate will need at least ninety days to gather information, as well as all of the property that will be coming back to the Estate from Melissa Johnson and the HTWF. We want the fans to rest assured that all decisions on the use of a charitable foundation or, as an alternative, making direct contributions to recipient charities, and any and all personnel decisions, will be made with complete regard to Michael’s wishes and Michael’s legacy, which we intend to honor and perpetuate. We also value the opinions of Michael’s fans who, above all, have shown unwavering support for Michael and his legacy. We therefore want to assure the fans that all actions being taken by the Estate, past, present and future, will be guided by the paramount objective of doing the right thing by Michael.
