Gatlin told NBC,
Although Michael did severe ties with Tohme Tohme in May (09), after learning he had threatened a California auction house over memorabilia items, Tohme Tohme spoke on behalf of the pop icon hours after he died on June 25, 2009.
In fact, Jackson even reportedly sent a letter to all of his business associates, in which he stated, "Dr. Tohme Tohme is no longer authorized to represent me." However, Dr. Tohme Tohme told NBC, "I'm still in charge of Michael Jackson's business until otherwise I am informed not to do so."
