The Jackson family has just retained the services of high-powered publicists Ken Sunshine and Shawn Sachs, whose firm also represents Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Timberlake, among other A-list celebrities.
Sunshine is also very tight with the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Here is the Sunshine, Sachs & Associates' statement about the upcoming Jackson memorial, putting to rest any rumors about a private viewing at Neverland of Michael Jackson's body, which is — according to my inside sources — currently at Forest Lawn.
"Effective today, the Jackson family has retained the services of Sunshine, Sachs & Associates to handle all public relations for the family regarding Michael Jackson."
