According to TMZ, the official visuals for ‘Hood’ were filmed in July at the infamous ranch, which is situated in Santa Barbara County, California.
It’s said the shoot had not been authorised and that a security team demanded Daeshard erased the footage on the spot upon being caught trespassing. The full video, however, has now been posted to YouTube.
Daeshard told TMZ he was granted permission to film the project, but did not reveal who had given him the green light. Sources claim that three people were spotted on the shoot using three GoPro cameras and an iPhone to capture the required footage.
Yesterday (November 9), Daeshard responded to the backlash from Jackson fans. “I know they hating on me but I don’t read comments,” he wrote on Twitter. You can see that post below.
“This will legally be removed before too long, unfortunately,” wrote one viewer in the comments section. Another said: “Cool stunt, but unfortunately die-hard MJ fans like yourself and especially the legal team will stop this if it gains some traction.”
Last month, a lawsuit filed against one of Jackson’s companies by one of the men who accused the late singer of sexual abuse was dismissed.
James Safechuck, who featured in the 2019 documentary Leaving Neverland, sought damages from MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, who he accused of “facilitating” the singer’s alleged sexual abuse of children.
Safechuck, who is now 42, alleges that the pop icon began abusing him when he was just 10 years old.
Jackson denied the charges and was acquitted in 2005 after a lengthy four-and-a-half month-long trial.
