The new Lifetime and Netflix movies about Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, may or may not feature MJ's music.
Sources close to Michael Jackson's estate told TMZ the new movie, 'Searching for Neverland' and the recently announced animated feature, "Bubbles," are not authorized -- therefore, they're not allowed to use ANY of Michael's materials ... especially his music.
It's reported MJ's estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let's say "Billie Jean," "Thriller," "Beat It," "Rock with You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or any of his hits ... they'll round up the lawyers.
The reason they're not heading to court now is that the estate reps haven't seen the movies. 'Searching for Neverland' drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday,
