The Stars Behind Michael Jackson: Searching For Neverland React To Criticism From The Jackson Family

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersMichael JacksonNetflixControversy

Michael Jackson

The actors behind Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland are speaking out.

As we reported, the made-for-TV movie is based on the book written by the late singer's bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, Remembering the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, and is meant to depict the King of Pop's everyday life.

Unfortunately for the cast and crew, the Lifetime TV project hasn't garnered support from the MJ's estate.

In case you missed it, the family said in a statement on Monday:

"To clear up any confusion or misperceptions about unsanctioned Michael Jackson projects currently in the news — including a Lifetime television movie and an animated film script recently purchased by Netflix — the Estate of Michael Jackson does not license or permit the use of any rights it owns, including to Michael's music, images, video and films, for use in unauthorized works seeking to exploit Michael's legacy."

Yikes.

In response, the biopic's stars, Navi (a famed Michael Jackson impersonator) and Chad Coleman (who plays Whitfield) have spoken out about not receiving the estate's approval.

Navi told CBS News:

Blanket makes a rare appearance.

Blanket!!!

We rarely see pictures of Michael Jackson's youngest, so this is quite exciting!

Paris Jackson posted (and then deleted!) a photo of her younger brother on her Instagram Story, featuring him sporting a hoodie and a smile. He looks so happy! And tall!

Previously there had been reports Paris was really worried about the 15-year-old essentially living on his own in his grandmother Katherine's Calabasas home.

According to sources, the 19-year-old model and actress was particularly upset at her aunt Rebbie, whom she accused of purposefully keeping their grandma away from them.

We can't know if Blanket Jackson is still living in an unsupervised state or if things have changed, but we're sure Paris at least is keeping an eye on him.

The Trailer For Lifetime's Unauthorized Michael Jackson Biopic Has Dropped — & It's Certainly Something!

We're sure Michael Jackson's kids have an opinion about this.

Lifetime has undertaken another "unauthorized biopic" project following their inneresting portrayals of Britney Spears and the Beverly Hills, 90210 cast. Only this time, the network is taking on the King Of Pop's last two years in Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland.

And while Lifetime's previous films in the "unauthorized" franchise have been pretty bad, this particular made-for-TV movie looks kind of intriguing. Why?? Well, because the cable channel hired famed MJ impersonator, Navi.

Now, Navi's impression of the Thriller singer is just about spot on, but that doesn't mean the film itself will be a hit. It's said the story will be told from Jackson's longtime bodyguards' point of view, as the flick is based off the book penned by Michael's security guards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. Huh.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the trailer for the upcoming Lifetime movie for yourself (below)!

Paris Jackson Plays It A Little Too Safe On The Met Gala Red Carpet

paris jackson met gala red carpet 2017

Paris Jackson didn't quite nail it on the Met Gala red carpet.

On Monday, Michael Jackson's daughter made her debut at the celebrated event — and sadly, her ensemble choice did NOT live up to expectations. While there wasn't anything outwardly wrong with the black Calvin Klein dress the 19-year-old wore, we felt like the Hollywood scion played it a little too safe for such a fashion forward event.

Whomp, whomp.

We mean, on top of the gown choice, the heiress' hairstyle and makeup were equally underwhelming too. Although, we don't want to be too harsh towards Miz Jackson as she's still new to the whole red carpet game.

Don't worry, boo! You'll rock it next year!

janet jackson wants to go back to work

Janet Jackson is just about ready to end her maternity leave.

Despite her newly minted single status and role as mother to a baby boy, the Rhythm Nation singer is apparently eager to head back to work. We're sure Live Nation is happy to hear it!

In case you forgot, back in 2016, Michael Jackson's sister called off her Unbreakable World Tour in order to start a family with (soon-to-be ex) husband Wissam Al Mana. This upset many fans as they haven't been refunded for the postponed shows as the tour was "rescheduled" and not "canceled." One fan even SUED Live Nation over this drama.

But fans may not have to wait too much longer to see the music icon live in concert as a source close to Janet revealed to People:
