Taj and Marlon Jackson believe the dissenters are trying to profit off their dead uncle.
Taj was the first of Michael Jackson’s two nephews to speak on-air. When asked if he’d ever imagined the MJ backlash would follow his uncle to the grave, Taj showed a ton of resignation to his family’s struggle to maintain order. It was Taj who explained his theory of a “for-profit” smear campaign, orchestrated by Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed, and countless others before him.
With the interview was uploaded on the Breakfast Club’s YouTube channel, Charlamagne Tha God did the same, albeit with an abridged video-audio clip on his Instagram page, in which he assumed a scornful position against the music industry as a whole.
“I had no idea MJ was being investigated by the FBI for 10 years and I definitely had no idea he owned half of all Sony’s publishing. The music industry is EVIL AS FUCK,” he captioned next to the the clip.
Leaving Neverland is set to premiere on Monday (March 4th) in both the UK and on HBO in the United States of America. As a result of all the controversy, MJ’s estate has been forced to slash the sale price on the Neverland ranch by a whopping $69 million. Stay tuned for more on this issue, it appears we haven’t heard the last of Dan Reed, or Michael’s closest of kin.
