The book titled ‘Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson‘ by Rolling Stone magazine editor Randall Sullivan is a new Michael Jackson book, which reportedly claims that the ‘King of Pop’ was not treated well by her family and friends, and even after he passed away in 2009.

As noted at The New York Post this Sunday, November 11, 2012, in this latest Michael Jackson autobiography, which will be released on Tuesday, November 13 in stores and online including at Amazon.com; the Jackson family allegedly asked for $250,000 each from Michael if they attend his 30th anniversary in music back in 2001.
According to the report, the book mentioned that when Jermaine Jackson learned that Michael will make $10 million from the show, he persuaded his parents to ask for an additional $500,000 for each of them. However, it did not mention whether Michael agreed with the terms and how much did he paid, if there was any.
In addition, the new book also reportedly revealed that some of his friends took advantage over his wealth. Marlon Brando allegedly asked for $1 million from Michael in return for his appearance in a video tribute to him, while Elizabeth Taylor allegedly demanded for a $638,000 necklace for speaking in a video to defend him.
Early last month, Vanity Fair also reviewed the same Michael Jackson book and reported that book author Randall Sullivan wrote that Michael‘s burial was delayed for almost three months due to disagreement between Michael‘s estate and his younger sister, Janet Jackson, now 46.
As Vanity Fair noted, Sullivan mentioned in the book that Janet allegedly placed a $40,000 deposit to Michael‘s burial at Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks & Mortuaries in Glendale, California, but “she did not allow the funeral to take place until her money was returned back to her.”
On the same month, ABC News reported that Blair G. Brown, Janet Jackson‘s lawyer, sent a letter to Vanity Fair saying that Sullivan’s book accusing that his client “demanded her money back before Michael‘s burial” has no basis at all and is absolutely false, and is very damaging to her reputation.
However, Vanity Fair insisted that the excerpt in that book is true and that Sullivan‘s claim that Janet made a deposit of $40,000 is actually higher than what they discovered, with the paper later updating their report and changed the amount to $49,000, based on the alleged record released later.
