Michael ‘s mother, Katherine, has denied rumours that she and her business partner Howard Mann have parted ways on bitter terms. In a statement released by the Jackson family, Katherine denied the rumours and said the two are still working together.
“Howard has been great to me and my family . . . I look forward to our continued relationship and our future business projects,” Katherine says in an official statement.
Reps for Mann also reportedly issued a cease and desist notice against the site hollywoodreporter.com, which initially published a piece claiming that he was no longer working with the Jacksons.
In the statement, Mann’s lawyers reportedly say that the site was “sorely lacking in fact, journalistic integrity and simple ethics” and added that he and Jackson, “remain business partners and friends to this day.”
