Noval Williams Films who produced the documentary, Michael Jackson: The Last Photoshoot, has filed a lawsuit against the Jackson Estate to stop them from the release, and sale, of their documentary.
According to the lawyer fighting for the Jackson Estate, Howard Weitzman had the following to say.
“The makers of the documentary are attempting to exploit footage and photographs of [Michael], which we believe are owned by his estate. The documentary contains . . . private moments that he never agreed could be publicly and commercially exploited without his consent and/or involvement.”
Noval Williams Films claims that they own the rights to the film, however the Jackson Estate fired the first shot in saying that the rights belong to the estate. This action has prevented Noval Williams Films from selling the documentary. Thus here we are, locked in a court battle.
