Vanity Fair’s Unfair Reporting Exposed?
Janet Jackson is speaking out against Vanity Fair Magazine – after the monthly publication — boasting its in-depth reportage — reported the singer was responsible for delaying The King Of Pop’s funeral, over $40K.
Here’s what Vanity Fair published:
“Janet put up the $40,000 deposit at Forest Lawn to secure a spot for Michael, but refused to let the funeral take place until the money was repaid.”
Now, Janet Jackson’s attorney is demanding a full retraction, but Vanity Fair is reported to be sticking by its guns.
Here’s what’s being reported:
“Vanity Fair stands by Randall Sullivan’s assertion that Janet Jackson’s demand to be reimbursed for her deposit on her brother’s burial.
Sullivan’s sources told him that the amount of the deposit was $40,000, but records released last week indicate that the amount of the deposit was $49,000. Vanity Fair will make that correction.”
Here’s what a rep from Janet Jackson’s camp had to say about the situation:
“Janet never attempted to delay Michael’s funeral for any reason relating money issues.
In fact, Janet never tried to delay it for any reason and wanted the funeral to take place as soon as possible because of the ongoing stress and angst it was causing Katherine and Michael’s children.”
If Vanity Fair magazine is lying, I expect Janet Jackson will soon file a lawsuit. Don’t you agree?
