Jackson's Will Still Valid

The executors of MICHAEL JACKSON's estate have insisted his will is still valid - despite photo evidence allegedly proving the superstar was not in Los Angeles at the time he signed the document.
The estate has been hit by claims of a possible forgery in the will, which was signed and dated "July 7th, 2002 at 5:00 pm, Los Angeles”, after pictures emerged of Jackson in New York on the day he put pen to paper in California.
The news sparked fears the will could be declared invalid.
But Howard Weitzman, an attorney for Jackson estate administrators John Branca and John MCClain, has released a statement to clear up the rumours - insisting the witnesses have confirmed Jackson himself signed the paperwork.
He says, "Despite any claims to the contrary, we are confident Michael Jackson’s will is valid, that he signed it and that it reflects his wishes. All three witnesses listed on the will recall being present when Michael signed it.”
Celebrity website TMZ.com puts the mistake down to one of the witnesses, with an insider revealing the unnamed man wrote "Los Angeles" on the will after forgetting where he was.
