Michael Jackson’s estate issues a statement in support of the late pop star on the 10th anniversary of his death

Michael Jackson’s estate has issued a statement today in support of the late pop star, aptly coinciding  with the 10th anniversary of his death.

Since Jackson died from a prescription drug overdose on June 25, 2009, convoluted stories have continued to plague his reputation, and the Michael Jackson Estate is doing everything it can to keep the icon’s legacy intact.

The statement describes Jackson as “a gifted artist and extraordinary humanitarian” whose continued influence in music, fashion, dance and art has made him “more important than ever”.

The statement also suggests that fans do a charitable deed in honour of their idol.

The most recent controversy surrounding Michael Jackson’s reputation is the documentary Leaving Neverland in which two men allege that the star molested them as young boys.

In the wake of ‘Leaving Neverland’, Jackson’s standing in the music industry has been reduced to shameful, to say the least, with hundreds of radio stations worldwide refusing to play his music.

The estate has called the documentary “slanderous” and continues to fight its allegations.

In the wake of Leaving Neverland, Jackson’s standing in the music industry has been reduced to shameful, to say the least, with hundreds of radio stations worldwide refusing to play his music any longer.

Music artists, too, have taken extreme measures to disassociate themselves from Jackson, such as Drake, who recently dropped a song featuring Michael from his concert set list in Britain.

Sony Music continues to act as Michael Jackson’s global music distributor.
