Bain Releases Statement Refuting Neverland Sale Claims

Raymone Bain
Michael Jackson's spokesperson Raymone Bain has released the following statement after the worldwide media circulated rumours that Neverland Valley Ranch was up for sale.

"Reports that Mr. Michael Jackson is seeking to sell his Neverland Valley Ranch in California on the Bravo television network's reality show, 'Million Dollar Listing,' are totally untrue and ludicrous and yet another malicious attempt to damage Mr. Jackson's character and misrepresent his financial affairs.

"Mr. Jackson is NOT selling Neverland Valley Ranch. We have said this time and time again, but rather than believe the source, there are those who consistently rely on unsubstantiated reports from unnamed sources.

"We have not been in discussions with the Bravo Network regarding the series 'Million Dollar Listing,' nor do we plan to do so."

Raymone Bain
Michael Jackson's spokesperson Raymone Bain has released the following announcement concerning the postponement of the Tokyo Christmas Celebration until next year, plus news of an additional 'Fan Appreciation Day.'
"Pop star Michael Jackson and Broderick Morris, CEO, Positive Productions, have mutually agreed today to postpone the Tokyo Christmas Celebration, planned for December 19, 2006, at the Tokyo Studio Coast, to March 2007.

Both men agreed to the change in order to add a second separate event, a “Fan Appreciation Day,” on March 9, 2007, for Japanese fans, and fans in other parts of the world who wish to attend, noted Morris, who added that they selected the March 9th date because it is referred to in Japan as San Ku, which means, “Thank You.”

The Corporate VIP Event, which Mr. Jackson will meet, greet and take photos with attendees, be held the day before on March 8, 2007.

I will be attending these special events on March 8th and 9th in Tokyo, Japan,” said Michael Jackson. “Tokyo is such a wonderful place, and I look forward to speaking to my friends and fans at both events. My fans have been so loving and supportive of me, and I am honored to attend an event to thank them for the love and support they have shown to me, and my family, throughout the years,” Jackson added.

“We want to be as inclusive as possible to all of Michael’s fans,” explained Morris. “They have supported him throughout his career, and this is a unique opportunity for him to thank them. We both wanted to make sure that the events were planned in a way as to include as many of Michael’s friends and fans as possible.” Morris said persons holding tickets for the Christmas event will receive priority consideration for the new dates. Purchasers of tickets can also return those tickets for a full refund.
