Katherine Jackson - Jackson Estate Bosses Sue Mann

Subscribe to Katherine Jackson alerts

Katherine Jackson's business partner is in big trouble with the King of Pop's estate bosses - they've accused him of illegally cashing in on the superstar's image and legacy.
Estate administrators are suing Howard Mann, claiming he has made millions from Michael Jackson's music, photos and drawings without the proper permission.
The plaintiffs allege Mann, the guy behind MichaelJacksonSecretVault.com, has displayed "arrogant disregard" for the estate's copyrights, wrongfully publishing clips, artwork and trailers from concert rehearsal movie This Is It and segments from the Thriller: 25th Anniversary Edition CD.
They also accuse Mann of posting an "unreleased" Jackson song, titled Opis None, online - the track was in fact a remix of the song Destiny, which The Jacksons released in 1979.
The Estate also claims Mann published a number of copyrighted photographs in Katherine Jackson's coffee table book, Never Can Say Goodbye.
In total, administrators believe Mann hauled in more than $1.5 million (£1 million) in sales from the book in its first two days - money that rightfully belongs to the Jackson Estate.
The Estate wants to recoup all of the revenues Mann raked in from the sale and publication of the Estate's property, plus punitive damages, reports TMZ.com.
