Ex-manager speaks out about Michael Jackson’s lost will nobody heard of
A few years before his death, Michael Jackson made a secret will that never saw the light of day, the singer’s former publicist Raymone Bain claims.
According to Raymone Bain, the document was made in 2006 and was supposed to replace the current will, dated 2002. In it, Jackson allegedly describe in detail his vision of how to preserve his heritage. Bain herself stated that she had witnessed the document being was notarized and even heard its contents.
However, the whereabouts of the secret will are unknown.
"I don't have it. I don't know where it is," Bain said. "I have wished, I have hoped and I have prayed that Michael Jackson's will – dated Oct. 6, 2006 – would be found, revealed, discovered, dropped from the sky. Because in it, he painstakingly outlined how he wanted his legacy to be preserved and maintained."
Jackson’s estate said in a statement to USA TODAY, that Bain was "not authorized to act on behalf of the Michael Jackson Estate nor to use Michael Jackson’s name in any way for charitable or her own commercial purposes."
The former publicist also noted, that she "would love to be able to ask the president to help me find Michael Jackson’s 2006 will" as Trump was always ready to help Jackson through his hard times and the singer considered him a very close friend.
In 2009, Michael Jackson’s brother Randy claimed that the will of the pop singer dated 2002 , which came into force after the singer’s death, cannot be considered valid. According to him, the document examined by the court was signed in los Angeles on July 7, 2002, when the singer was actually in another city.
According to the will, 40% of his fortune went to his mother, another 40% to his three children and the remaining 20% to the accounts of charitable organizations. At that time, the singer was estimated to be worth approximately $500 million.
