Michael Jackson - Ban On Michael Jackson Tribute Belt Lifted

A crystal-encrusted leather belt made in tribute to Michael Jackson has gone back into production after the designer reached an out-of-court settlement with the King of Pop's estate executors.

The limited editon accessory, created by Simon Tavassoli and produced by manufacturers at California firm B.B. Simon through a deal with the singer's mother Katherine Jackson, was banned from sale in 2010 after estate bosses claimed they had not approved the contract between the family matriarch and her business partners.

She subsequently cut ties with B.B. Simon, and now it has emerged that a legal agreement over the belts has been reached.

A spokesperson for the Jackson estate, of which Katherine and the Thriller hitmaker's three kids are the beneficiaries, has declined to comment on the settlement, although the belts have since gone back on sale via Tavassoli's website.

Only 7,000 of the handmade belts have been produced. They retail at a hefty $1,600 (£1,000).
