According to ABC News, news that the release of Michael Jackson’s album will occur before Christmas isn’t being taken well by his family members. The late “King of Pop’s” mother, Katherine Jackson, and his two oldest children, Prince Michael and Paris, have asserted that the unreleased songs that will be featured on this album are fakes. The clan made claims that they think the songs are being performed by a Michael Jackson impersonator. His children say that they were present when they he recorded the songs in question, and they don’t match up. Jackson family attorney, Brian Oxman, said in a statement, “If Michael had wanted this music released he would have done so before his death.” It continued, "The songs which are being released on the new Michael Jackson album were unfinished and incomplete tracks that Michael said over and over many times he never wanted released. We should honor Michael Jackson's wishes."
