Katherine Jackson is asking for fan donations for a documentary about Michael Jackson. TMZ reports that Katherine has announced her plans for the documentary and has set up a website asking for donations because the Michael Jackson estate is planning to charge her for licensing fees. Katherine has enlisted Michael's kids to help solicit fans.
Howeer, Estate laywer Howard Weitzman told the site that no one from the Jackson family has contacted the Estate asking for for permission to use MJ's image and music. Weitzman said, "The Estate would never ask Michael's fans to contribute their money to finance any speculative project."
He addedm "The Estate will continue to release only the highest quality finished, professional projects showcasing the genius and humanity of Michael such as the 'This is It' film and the 2 very successful shows with Cirque du Soleil."
