We don't know what's going on here, but these are some serious allegations.
As we've reported, Sony is prepping the release of a new Michael Jackson album, which will feature 10-12 never-before-heard tracks from the late pop icon.
However, Jackson's children, Prince and Paris, are now alleging that they were present when their father recorded many of these songs, and the versions that are going to be released are FAKES!
Sources claim that five of the songs in question were recorded at the New Jersey home of Eddie Cascio, and Jackson and his kids stayed with the producer and his family for four months in 2007 while recording. Both Paris and Prince claim that they overheard the recording process and are "adamant" that the versions on the new album were sung by a sound-a-like.
Sony, however, counter-claims that sound experts have been brought in to confirm their products legitimacy, and they believe that the children are being "manipulated" by Katherine Jackson because she doesn't want the album released!
This is just out of control, and we truthfully have no idea what to believe ourselves!
But to think that Sony would knowingly release an album of fake Michael Jackson songs and take advantage of his fans like that is deeply distressing.
What do U think?? Do U believe the Jackson children or Sony??
