Dr. Boyce Watkins on Oprah!
Do you remember that David Geffen showed Leaving Neverland before its release to Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King in a private session on his yacht on Oprah’s birthday (by the end of January 2019)? Was LN a kind of birthday present from Geffen to his loyal friend Oprah?
We know that filmmakers, movie producers, artists and alike who produce or play in a movie have the privilege to show their creation to whom they wish before the public release.
For example we have read in Joy Robson’s deposition that Michael Jackson showed Smooth Criminal to her and her children before the movie was released.
Well, we know that Smooth Criminal video belonged to MJ but we cannot say the same thing about LN and Mr. Geffen because we do not know if he owns it or he has sponsored it. The only thing that we can say is that he entertained his guests by showing this movie. But why did he choose this movie? It was a birthday party after all, why not choosing an unreleased comedy for example? Does Mr. Geffen believe – like Oprah and King – in Robson and Safechuck? Does he believe that their lies and false accusations are true? If so then we must ask why? We know that Jackson and Geffen were friends back in the 80’s. What did happen to their friendship? Let’s explore this matter in the part 4 of this series.
More on Victor Gutierrez
In the first part of this series, we talked about Victor Gutierrez, how he was sued by Michael Jackson for defamation in 1995, how he lost the case and had to run back to Chile in 1998. We added that in 2004, Gutierrez was hired by ABC as Martin Bashir’s assistant. In 2005, they made together a slanderous movie about MJ that was broadcasted during the jury’s deliberations’ days, before the verdict on June 13, 2005.
I also mentioned that the pair of Gutierrez-Bashir might have known each other before 2004. About the Arvizos, I suggested that Gutierrez have probably played a crucial part on the backstage of this case.
A while ago, MJ Repository shared on Twitter three pictures from Gutierrez’s homepage where he sold his book on the Internet:
Amusing excerpt from Roger Friedman on one of the pictures!
What’s really interesting is that every boy [district attorney Tom] Sneddon would like to paint as a victim of Michael Jackson comes from the book written by Victor Gutierrez.
I would like to share an article in Spanish published in La Tercera on April 11, 1998- You find it in Spanish here. This is a paragraph translated in English that tells us about Gutierrez plans to make a movie based on his book MJ WML with HBO Olé and to write Hillary Clinton’s biography. Even none of these “plans” happened, it is an interesting read:
The reporter: Could it create work complications? (The reporter wonders if Gutierrez could have issues in the US after Jackson winning his defamations lawsuit.)
Gutierrez: No, because I’m a legal resident.
Victor Gutierrez plans are to continue selling the book in England and to make a film for HBO Olé, to be released later this year. He’s also working on the biography of the first lady of the U.S., Hillary Clinton “which I think will also cause me problems”. While continuing his work producing magic numbers for Julio Videla’s program Juntémonos on Megavision, he analyzes Hard Copy’s offerings. “But I’ve got to see the silver.” “I’m going to keep writing and the only way for me to stop doing it, is to be shot in the head 
About HBO Olé:
HBO Latin America (originally known as HBO OLÉ) originated in 1991 as a partnership between Venezuelan broadcaster Omnivisión and HBO. The channel was initially available to cable and satellite providers across Central and South America, and the Caribbean. HBO OLÉ reached a break-even profit by 1993, and had about 500,000 subscribers by 1994; that year, a secondary channel was launched, along with a Portuguese feed for Brazil. Sony, The Walt Disney Company and Universal Pictures later joined the partnership. Omnivisión eventually sold its share in the channel to Time Warner.
HBO Latin America is a company which owns several pay television networks in the region of Latin America. It is a joint venture between WarnerMedia and Ole Communications.
In Latin America, the channels owned by WarnerMedia Entertainment who broadcasts TNT, CNN International, CNN en Español, truTV, Cartoon Network, Chilevisión and other sister channels and HBO Latin America Group, which broadcasts other related channels.
In October 2019, WarnerMedia announced an agreement with Ole to acquire the latter’s minority interest in the Spanish-language HBO, Max, and Cinemax channels in Latin America, in order to facilitate the future launch of the HBO Max streaming service in the region. HBO Brasil, and the companies’ distribution partnership for Warner Channel and channels owned by other companies, are not affected at this time.
Going back to the Arvizos case and the 2005 trial, apart from Bashir, Sneddon and his crow fed off of Gutierrez sick person and fantasy book. The times that “lions and monkeys and some other animals entered the court room” during the trial in 2005 were a few examples of that; also “faeces “, “diarrhea” “Vaseline”, … were also other examples.
More on Arvizos and Gutierrez in the next part!
A last addition, a letter has been shared on Twitter by Megyn Kelly telling us that James Goldston the president of ABS News has covered up crimes of Epstein but he produced Bashir’s “Living with Michael Jackson”.
In 2014, Wade Robson and James Safechuck advised by their lawyers filed their lawsuits against Michael Jackson and his estate because they believed that the conditions for their success had been met.
In fact, Jackson being dead, no one could sue them; also the social movement #MeToo that has no rules or boundaries tolerates both true and false accusers and provides them a forum to share their stories true or false. A unique opportunity for money hungry people like Safechuck and Robson!
Actually, both Wade and James and their families have struggled years after years with poor economy, debts and lawsuits. See MJJ Repository tweets here:
In 2003, Joy and Wade collaboratively borrowed a $440,000 30-year mortgage at 5% adjustable interest to purchase a home together. Joy secured a second mortgage against the property in 2004 for $145,000. Wade eventually moved on and was removed as co-borrower, leaving Joy alone.
In ’07, Joy took out a $595k 30 yr. loan to consolidate prior loans & moved again in 2009 (to apartments). In the same vein, Wade wound up selling his home in 2013 and downsizing with Amanda back to Hawaii, after years of repeated financial failures and self-imposed job refusal.
This year, Joy was pursued by bill collectors after repeatedly failing to pay minimum balances on credit card debt. This culminated in a lawsuit in August, with American Express seeking more than $4,250 in unpaid dues. Note that Joy still uses Wade’s business as her own on card.
See James Safechuck’s dad lawsuit here.
In contrast to other people like Brett Barnes, Macaulay Culkin, Omar Bathi … who have achieved success in life, Wade and James and their family were more like losers; they decided to jump to the other side and to rob the estate of Jackson. And of course they were very welcomed by Jackson haters who have supervised every single person around Michael since the 90’s in hopes that one day he or she would turn side and accuse falsely MJ.
We also know that Michael Jackson has been used as a shield to protect real predators. Robson and Safechuck were a solace for these people and their protectors who by attacking MJ covered the real wrongdoers; the kind of Oprah Winfrey who have covered for people like Harvey Weinstein (see here for example); but also others, like this one, Jude Aptow. See here for more details.
Another reminder and a must read: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/12/05/us/harvey-weinstein-complicity.html
 Collecting a monthly retainer, Mr. Benza said, he reported items on Roger Clemens, Michael Jackson and others and sent them to Mr. Weinstein’s communications team, though he didn’t know whether they were used to trade away stories about the producer. Mr. Weinstein’s spokeswoman said the payments to Mr. Benza were for public relations work during Miramax’s dispute with Disney 
American Media has acknowledged that it sometimes worked to gather information to help Mr. Weinstein because of mutual business interests. “To the extent AMI provided ‘off the record’ information to Mr. Weinstein about his accusers,” the company said in a statement, it did so “at a time when Mr. Weinstein was denying any harassment.” The statement said Mr. Howard would not have allowed the information to be published
By fall last year, Mr. Weinstein was trying to stop what he feared would be a story about the allegations against him by New York magazine. Once again, he called on Mr. Benza, meeting him at the Peninsula Beverly Hills that October. Saying the magazine was “doing a Bill Cosby on me,” Mr. Weinstein asked for help, Mr. Benza recalled 
Having said all these facets in this matter, there is another angle that has not been discussed much. The only person, as far as I know, who has noticed it, is Mr. Zack O’Malley Greenburg in his article What ‘Leaving Neverland’ Means For Michael Jackson’s Business Empire.
Here is an excerpt:
Like Sony itself, Sony/ATV recently signed a long-term deal with Jackson. The idea of the company disentangling itself from the singer—who paid $47.5 million for the original ATV catalog, which included some of the Beatles’ biggest hits, in the 1980s before merging it with Sony’s a decade later—seems complicated at best. Any theoretical unwinding of Jackson’s publishing would likely drag along other music contained within his Mijac publishing entity, including the catalog of Sly and the Family Stone, as well as hits popularized by Aretha Franklin and Jackson’s late father-in-law, Elvis Presley.
As we know it, Sony bought Jackson’s part in ATV catalog in 2016 for $750 million. But Jackson’s own works and a few others mentioned in the excerpt above are still in possession of the MJ estate.
This is a common knowledge in the music industry that artists who own their works and even others, belong to an especial part in this industry. They are their own masters; but they can also drag up or down the music of the artists they own.
On the other hand, Mr. Branca has already explained in this video how Sony bought MJ’s part in ATV catalog:
1:19:50 to 1:20:20 : … the best example is Sony/ATV so after we bought the Beatles, Sony sent us a notice without telling us that they were going to exercise a buy/sell. Michael’ lawyers had installed because I wasn’t representing him. Michael had instructed me under no circumstances can I ever be forced to sell this company that’s what I had in the contract but in 2006 / 2007 some other lawyer changed that and Sony exercises this buy / sell
The question is what the intention of Sony Corporation was in 2016 when without warning they asked to buy Jackson’s part of ATV catalog? Who were Michael’ lawyers who changed the original contract between MJ and Sony in 2006-2007 and in favor of the latter? Who did represent Sony in 2006-2007 when the buy-cell clause was added to the original contract? How was the original contract drafted in the matter of buy and sell between the two owners?
We also know that Sony Corporation that had bought 30% of EMI catalog in 2012 bought the rest of EMI in 2018; 10% from the estate of Jackson ($287 million) and 60% from a consortium of investors including Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Development, Jynwel Capital, Blackstone Group’s GSO Capital Partners and David Geffen.
As you see, Sony Music Entertainment (SME, as a part of Sony Corporation), Universal Music Group (UMG) and Warner Music Group (WMG, owned by AT&T, HBO is included in the Warner Media Group) own the global music industry for now.
There is no doubt that the streaming medias have changed the music and the film industries drastically. Having a strong foot in both of these industries, Sony goes head-to-head with the biggest like Disney, Google, Apple, etc.
There is still a question left! What was actually at the bottom of the Sony Pictures hacking story in 2014-2015, the North Korea involvement, the movie The Interview and at the time American President?
