Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon is a behind the scenes account of the star’s life which offers a true portrayal of his journey through the use of intimate stories, rare footage and personal recounts from those who knew him best.

Earlier this week I was given the amazing opportunity to interview Michael Jackson’s brother Tito, eldest sister Rebbie, his close childhood friend David Gest as well as the lawyers who successfully acquitted Michael in the 2005 trial, Thomas Mesereau and Susan Yu.

The final interview of the morning was with producer and childhood friend of Michael Jackson- David Gest who spoke about the reason behind the production of the documentary, his relationship with Michael growing up, how drugs affected the icons personality and his personal views on the fifty “This is It” concerts Michael had been contracted to perform.

Michael Jackson: The Life of An Icon is available now to buy on DVD and Blu-Ray! Order your copy here.
