According to sources close to the deal, Sony Music and a potential financial partner are said to be finalizing the acquisition of 50% of the Estate's interests in Jackson's publishing, recorded-music revenues, the Tony Award-winning musical "MJ: The Musical," the upcoming biopic "Michael," and other assets.

Upon completion, this deal would be the biggest of its kind and encompass Jackson's recordings and publishing rights.

The potential sale, as reported by TMZ, comes with the requirement of the Estate maintaining "complete management and control."

It is important to note that the sale is only 50% of the Estate's interest, which means that the full value of Jackson's music catalog could in theory be double the amount currently reported.
