Vanity Fair recently published an article that has Janet Jackson fuming. In the story published on the Internet and in the November, 2012 issue, the magazine claims that Michael Jackson’s burial back in 2009 was delayed because Janet insisted that Michael not be buried until she was reimbursed for the $40,000 deposit on his burial plot.
“Untrue” and “outrageous,” lawyer Blair G. Brown said about the story in his letter to Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter.
Instead, Janet’s lawyers are saying that she paid for the funeral and that Michael’s estate reimbursed her for some of those expenses at a later date.
“This story is particularly hurtful and distressing because of Ms. Jackson’s strong desire to serve her brother, whom she loved dearly,” Brown said, “and her wish to stand with and support her family.”
The letter calling for the retraction notes that the VF article is “replete with additional false and defamatory statements” about Janet, and also tells the magazine to let all other outlets know that the retraction has been issued.
