    I don't think anyone is saying the cascios are innocent. The estate were ultimately the ones that decided to release them despite doubts coming from literally every possible direction and that is where I lay the blame for this situation.

    The Cascio situation is horrid from every angle. Eddie, his family, James Porte, Jason Malachi, Stuart Brawley, Teddy Riley, Branca, McClain, Frank Dileo — they’re all complicit and they’re all deserving of the criticism they get. I know Branca has expressed his regrets privately since the album dropped, but I pray he eventually speaks publicly about what was going through his mind when he pushed to release three songs that were unanimously considered fraudulent.

    Cascio is bad guy with Malachi as some fake MJ

    In McClain's defense, he once said that after he heard "Soldier Boy" he knew that none of the Cascio tracks were authentic

    Like I said the Estate made a massive blunder, but to say that they didn't care or willingly release fake tracks is ludicrous. Releasing Cascio tracks hurt the sales of Michael album and a lot of fans boycotted future posthumous projects as a result. Do you think Estate wanted that? Do you think that they wanted to lose money and hurt their business? The Estate made a mistake of trusting the Cascios, just like MJ did.

    I remember hearing about this!

    I’ve always wondered why McClain let the tracks on the album if he felt they were fake, since he’s the only one who can veto Branca. I recall reading that he had a stroke in the mid-2000s; perhaps he was looking to avoid the stress?

    They made up fake audio analysis, lied about how meetings went, saying that everyone there said they were confident the vocals were his, when the opposite was true. Their behaviour says all you need to know really. I am not saying they weren't initially tricked, but when literally everyone they consulted said they weren't him? That was the time to remove them from the tracklist.

    I look forward to what Prince will bring going foward and cannot wait to hear a new mj song we can hopefully dance to. At the end of the day , that's what Michael's music made you want to do!
