Prince recently open on the philanthropic legacy his father Michael Jackson left behind.
“He really taught us from a young age the principles of leading with love, of trying to listen with an open heart and ears,” Prince said in the interview. “So I think those are the main principles that I have tried to apply both to The Heal Los Angeles Foundation and to my day to day life.”
Earlier this year, Jackson’s estate won a major legal battle that spanned years after a U.S. tax court found the IRS had inflated the value of its assets and its image at the time of his death.
The IRS had valued three disputed aspects of Jackson’s worth at the time of his death in 2009 at around $ 482 million. This led to an inheritance tax bill for his heirs that was far too high considering the King of Pop’s financial situation when he died. In his ruling, Judge Mark Holmes put that figure at $ 111 million, much closer to the estate’s own estimates.
The estate’s executors said it was a huge and unambiguous victory for Jackson’s children.
The decision, overdue for years, resolved one of the few disputes that still hung over Jackson’s estate nearly a dozen years after his unexpected death on June 25, 2009, after a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol .
Another was resolved in May when a judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by choreographer Wade Robson, one of two men featured in the 2019 documentary “Leaving Neverland,” which claimed Jackson had sexually assaulted him. in his childhood. A similar lawsuit against James Safechuck, the other man featured in the documentary, was dismissed in 2020. The men’s lawyer called the decisions a dangerous precedent for the protection of children and said he planned to appeal.

With years of disputes settled and a pandemic-forced delay in lifting projects, leaders in the field feel in a great place to start promoting Jackson’s legacy again.
“We are at an absolute turning point,” said co-executor John Branca in May. “I think people have realized that Michael was innocent of any accusation and unable to protect himself. We have a wonderful Broadway play coming up, we will reopen our Cirque du Soleil show soon, and we have some surprises coming up.”
