The producer’s of This Is It would like to make one thing clear: The guy you see on the billboard is really Michael Jackson.

Recently, Jackson’s father Joe accused the directors of the concert movie of using fake Jackson’s in the film.

“This movie features body doubles, no doubt about it,” he told the London’s News of the World. “I think people will tear this movie apart.”

Now a rep from Sony is firing back with a statement, accusing Joe of being off.

“This story is pure garbage and there are no body doubles,” the rep says in regards to Joe’s claims.

“Audiences will begin to see the film tomorrow and every time they see The King of Pop they will know that every frame is unquestionably Michael as he rehearses and prepares for the London concerts that were to have begun this past summer.”

This Is It hits theaters Wednesday. –Linda Hobbs
