Michael Jackson - Prankster: 'Legal Action Proves Michael Jackson Call Was Real'

The infamous phone prankster who claimed to have fooled Michael Jackson has been threatened with legal action from the late superstar's estate for selling the recording online, but the joker insists the move proves his call was real.
Underground sensation Ralphige claimed to have called up Jackson in 2007, two years before his death, and pretended to be R&B star Akon, teasing the Thriller hitmaker about his child molestation trial.
Jackson reportedly claimed never to have spoken to Ralphige, insisting the call was faked using a voice impersonator.
Ralphige has now been hit with a letter from officials at the late singer's estate, warning him to stop selling the audio on his website, and the prankster believes the threat of legal action proves it really is Jackson's voice on the tape.
He tells Tmz.com, "The letter, if anything, it at least proves to the doubters that the prank call is real. I am afraid the estate is not aware Michael personally gave me permission to release the phone call. This is something that I am sure will be discussed in the near future."

Good grief. Someone else after notoriety at Michael's expense when he is not here to confirm or deny. For goodness sake, crawl back under your rock (and take TMZ with you). Leave Michael, his family, his true friends and his fans (i.e. US) ALONE.

Man! There are some twisted sisters out there! Who is this bozo anyway? Like Michael would ever give his permission to release a private phone call - one about the hideous trial no less!! - to the public. That the Estate has ordered him to stop selling it (is anybody really paying money for this garbage?) proves nothing except that Ralphy is a fraud, not to mention delusional.

How does this proves that the call was true? The only thing this proves is that the estate is tired of dealing with this wack job and need to (along with the other s-it) stop this foolishness. If this so called prank was 4 years ago what's this guy's point. 4 years and Michael is deceased and can not defend himself against this piece of garbage who like the so called "friends and family" of MJ is attempting to make a name for themselves or trying to find a way to get money off of the name of the one person who really doesn't deserve such blatant disrespect. SO PLEEEZE SUE THIS CRAPPY "LITTLE" MAN. AND AS FOR THE REST OF THEM, MICHAEL JACKSON IS THE ONE WHO HAS PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE SO WHY DO YOU PEOPLE THINK THAT ANY OF YOU DESERVE TO USE HIS NAME TO BETTER YOUR PATHETIC LITTLE LIVES. WHAT MORE DO YOU "PEOPLE" WANT????

What on earth are these immature idiots hoping to achieve? As Corlista said there is no way the great Michael Jackson would ever allow such a phone conversation to be made public, if it genuinely exists at all,which I doubt. A famous quote covers this and all the other low-life creeps: 'Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds' - Albert Einstein.

Why fight this game? Is the estate making an issue because this is a prank just like it's a hoax that Michael Joe Jackson is not dead.Still no name on the grave. MJ is not listed in FL burial directory. Ambulance photo faked and 100's of more clues.Learn more by watching a 52-minute documentary called "Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?"
