However, the film, which was due to feature interviews with the King of Pop’s three children, has now reportedly been put on hold due to a dispute with the executors of the late singer’s estate, according to TMZ.com.
The fundraising page, which was hosted at Fundanything.com, had a target of more than $3 million. It has been removed from the website, but a lawyer representing Katherine Jackson insists the family matriarch still hopes to reach an agreement to make the tribute film to her son.
Attorney Perry Sanders told TMZ, “[Katherine] fully anticipates the executors will see the artistic honesty of this project and help make [it] successful.”
While Jackson is working on fine-tuning her project, Paris Jackson is on the road to recovery. TMZ reported that Michael’s teenage daughter, who was admitted to an inpatient treatment facility after she attempted suicide in April, will likely remain in intensive counseling for several more years.
The teen, who has stayed off social media since her suicide attempt, seems to be making a lot of progress in dealing with the issues that drove her to the dark point. While the Jackson family has not spoken out about Paris’ progress, sources report she was transfered to a boarding school in Utah this past fall and is continuing her treatment and education there.
