MJ's brother doubts latest Jacko album

Pop legend Michael Jackson's brother Randy has claimed that some of the songs on the King of Pop's much awaited posthumous album are bogus.
Randy took to Twitter with the allegations saying that the $250 million deal signed between music label Sony and executors of Jackson's estate to release 10 albums, made him "sick."
Despite the label insisting that Jackson's voice features on every track, Randy says that he can bet his life on the belief that some of the tracks are fake."Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn't his voice on some of the tracks. The family and the executors of the estate, Branca and (John) McClain, are not on the same page. We don't see eye to eye," tweeted the elder brother of the Thriller hitmaker.
"I became suspicious about the album, when I heard armed guards were involved since my brother's passing. John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed. My first thought was, 'What are they trying to hide?," he added.
"I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn't his voice. Some of the songs are him, and some aren't. I would bet my life on that," said Randy.
His online rant also fuelled conspiracy theories into the King Of Pop's June 2009 demise.
"What's worse than harsh is that my brother isn't here, and all these people are more concerned about making money off his death. They could care less about why and how he died, or maybe they already know," wrote Randy.
