Michael Jackson's Lawyer to Sue Over Unauthorized Casino


Michael Jackson


Howard Weitzman, the estate lawyer of the late King of Pop, confirms that he will 'take whatever legal actions are necessary to shut this operation down.'

Lawyers representing Michael Jackson's estate are taking legal action against the bosses of an online casino which has allegedly been using the King of Pop's likeness without permission. The Michael Jackson Casino website, which boasts gambling games including poker and baccarat, features a picture of the late superstar on its home page and mentions the singer in the opening tag line.

The introduction reads, "The King of Pop is proud to bring you the most exciting Vegas style online casino betting experience on the Net!" But Howard Weitzman, an attorney for Jackson's estate, is adamant the website has not been given official approval to use Jackson's image.

He tells TMZ.com that he will "take whatever legal actions are necessary to shut this operation down."
