Michael Jackson Estate Sued Over Planning To Show A Hologram Of Jackson At Billboard Music Awards
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.16.2014

TMZ reports that a hologram performance by Michael Jackson that was scheduled for the Billboard Music Awards could be canceled thanks to a lawsuit against Jackson's estate.

Alki David, who controls the hologram technology, filed the suit yesterday against the estate, Jackson's production company and Dick Clark Productions to stop them from using the hologram. A life-size 3D image of Jackson will be projected to perform the unreleased song "Slave to the Rhythm." It's similar to when a Tupac Shakur hologram performed at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival. David says this was based on the same technology.

David claims that if Billboard airs the performance, it will hurt his plans for a similar performance with a Jackson hologram. He is asking a judge to stop the show.

Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the estate, said: "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."
