A Michael Jackson impersonator was reportedly used on a posthumous album.
Sony Music Entertainment, reportedly admitted this week to the release of the three fake songs on a posthumous Michael Jackson album.
The songs “all the latest News,” “Monster” and “Keep Your Head Up” appeared on the album “Michael” in 2010 and were performed by a King of Pop impersonator, according to Vibe.
Vera Serova, a fan, first made the claims in 2014, and filed a class-action lawsuit against the album’s producers, according to Vulture. The songs were actually performed by Jason Malachi, Serova alleged at the time.
According to TMZ, he confessed to taking part in the recording back in 2011.
Jackson’s old friends, Eddie Cascio and James Victor Porte, in the first instance, claimed they took the songs in a basement in 2007, but failed to back up their claim.
Serova noticed dozens of inconsistencies with the songs and used an audiologist and a back-up of his own theory, according to a hip-hop website.
Sony claimed in the courtroom had the right to advertise on the album as Jackson’s, despite the use of the imitator, according to the Vulture. A judge will decide the label of debt in the next few weeks.
