Criminal Charges In Michael Jackson Belt Scandal

In death, celebrities always get ripped off.

This time, the robbery is in the form of a commemorative rhinestone belt signed by Michael Jackson’s parents and three children that will go on sale today online for a starting bid of $5,000.

Jackson’s estate claims the sale is illegal because the belts display trademarked emblems, like dancing feet and MJ’s silhouette, that are unsanctioned.  Additionally, no Jackson would ever approve of using his children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, as a method of promotion.

Seven thousand unsigned belts will also be on sale for the nominal fee of $1,500.
