Michael Jackson's Daughter Rips 'Impersonator' Allegations Via Twitterby: Posted:
Remember to tread lightly when telling Michaal Jackson's kin that what they say came from the King of Pop himself isn't all it seems.
Paris Jackson, Michael's 13-year-old daughter, fired right back Wednesday via Twitter at media claiming that it's an impersonator singing at least one of the late Michael's songs on the posthumous 2010 set simply called Michael, "Hold My Hand."
People should know by now not to believe the media when it comes down to TMZ talking about my family. #HoldMyHad IS my dad actually singing.— Paris Jacksoη (@ParisJackson) March 1, 2012
The TMZ report she questions got particularly bold with its claim. The website claimed that Paris herself told friends via video chat in 2010 shortly before the ablum's release that "Hold My Hand" was sung by an impersonator named Jason Malachi. According even to TMZ, both Sony and Malachi deny the accusation.
TMZ described Paris playing the song online, then making that "impersonator" claim when a friend asked why it didn't sound like Michael.
"It's NOT him . . . the whole album isn't even him!!" TMZ claims she responded. "Go online . . . Go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That's him!!
"I should know if it's him or not because he would sing to me all the time," she continued.
TMZ also claims a recording of the chat is being "shopped to various media outlets" and that "offers are on the table."
