If you bought Michael Jackson‘s posthumous album “Michael,” you may want your money back. According to daughter Paris, Jackson’s voice did not appear anywhere on the album, reports TMZ.
After a friend reportedly asked Paris why Jackson didn’t sound like himself on the song “Hold My Hand,” Paris responded that the singer on the album was actually an imposter named Jason Malachi. Listen to Malachi sing below:
Paris reportedly added:
“It’s NOT him … the whole album isn’t even him!! Go online … go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That’s him!! I should know if it’s him or not because he would sing to me all the time.”

Of course, Sony, the record company that released “Michael,” and Malachi deny Paris’ claims, but with celebrities being worth several times more what they were worth alive, using a sound-alike to cash in on millions doesn’t seem like such a far reach.
According to TMZ, Paris’ video chat is now for sale, with a number of media outlets vying for ownership. May the highest bidder win.
