The forthcoming Billboard Music Awards could suffer because of this sudden legal blow!
The Michael Jackson Estate has been hit withanother lawsuit by Alki David, who claims ahologram performance by Michael Jackson scheduled to hold at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards should be stopped because he has the same idea in mind.
You may ask, who is he? Alki David controls the rights to the hologram technology and filed a sudden suit late Thursday against the Michael Jackson Estate, MJ’s production companyand Dick Clark Productions to stop them from showing a hologram of Michael using his technology.
According to the suit – obtained by TMZ – a life-size, projected 3D image of Michael will showcase a never-before-released Jackson song, “Slave to the Rhythm,” similar to the Tupac Shakur hologram at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival … which David claims was based on the same technology.
David threatens that should Billboard go ahead with the Jackson performance on Sunday, it will destroy his plans for a similar, high-profile holographic MJ performance. He wants a judge to STOP IT!
However, Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for the MJ Estate, tells TMZ, “This is another Alki David stunt, no different than his claiming that Brandon Howard was Michael Jackson’s son. It is ludicrous … and the show goes on.”
Again, when will MJ actually REST IN PEACE?
