It’s still unclear whether an impersonator sang three songs on the 2010 album “Michael” released after music legend Michael Jackson’s death.

Singer Jason Malachi allegedly sang the songs “Breaking News,” “Keep Your Head Up” and “Monster,” The Week UK reported.

Even Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, doubted the songs were authentic, according to EDM.com.

Fan Vera Serova’s civil suit accused songwriter James Porte and Jackson’s friend Eddie Cascio, who runs a music production company, of “creating and selling music through Sony and the Jackson estate,” reported Vibe. The two men had said the songs were recorded in the basement of Cascio’s home in 2007. (RELATED: West Hollywood Votes To Remove Trump’s Star While Doing Nothing About Cosby, Spacey, Michael Jackson)

“Michael” included featured artists like Akon, 50 Cent and Lenny Kravitz. The 10-track album included four singles, and the song “Hold My Hand” reached number 39 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. The first song from the album shared with the public, “Breaking News,” was reportedly sung by Malachi and not Jackson.

Correction: The originally published story showed that Sony Music Entertainment admitted in court that the three songs were not actually sung by Jackson. The company did not.
