Earlier this week news leaked that police reports from the 2003 raid on Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch yielded a huge porn stash and a treasure trove of sado masochistic images.
The Estate of Michael Jackson blasts the news reports as false calling them shameless clickbait...
"Seven years ago this coming Saturday, the world lost an amazing artist and humanitarian devoted to helping children in need in all corners of the world. Michael Jackson's fans, including the Executors of his estate, prefer to remember the wonderful gifts Michael left behind instead of having to once again see his good name dragged through the mud by tabloid trash."
"Everything in these reports, including what the County of Santa Barbara calls 'content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources' is false, no doubt timed to the anniversary of Michael's passing. Those who continue to shamelessly exploit Michael via sleazy internet 'click bait' ignore that he was acquitted by a jury in 2005 on every one of the 14 salacious charges brought against him in a failed witch hunt. Michael remains just as innocent of these smears in death as he was in life even though he isn't here to defend himself. Enough is enough."Meanwhile the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department confirms in an email to Billboard,
"The Sheriff's Office released all of its reports and the photographs as part of the required discovery process to the prosecution and the defense. The documents with a header titled Sheriff's Department that contain a case number appear to be Sheriff's Office documents. The photos that are interspersed appear to be some evidentiary photos taken by Sheriff's investigators and others are clearly obtained from the Internet."
