Paris made the shock announcement during an online video chat with several friends back in 2008, just before the Michael album was released. The album contains several previously unreleased tracks allegedly performed by Michael Jackson.
During the video chat, which was recorded, Paris joked about the footage eventually “leaking” to the Internet.
The story has resurfaced as rumors are flying around that Michael Jackson’s parts on the Michael album were really performed by an Michael Jackson sound-alike called Jason Malachi. Both Jason and Sony denied the allegations.
During the video chat, Paris played one of the songs from the album, Hold My Hand and one of her friends asks why the singer doesn’t sound like Michael Jackson.
“It’s NOT him … the whole album isn’t even him!! Go online … go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That’s him!!”
She continues by saying she should know if it’s Michael Jackson singing, as he used to sing to her all the time.
Now a recording of Paris’ video message is being shopped to various media outlets and apparently, offers are on the table.
