Not according to Chris Kenner. Various online news outlets appear to have been caught up in the April Fools Day shenanigans which pop up every April 1st. Everyone from Yahoo News, MTV UK and Perez Hilton have been reporting stories along the lines of, "Michael Jackson is a huge fan of magic and has enlisted the help of illusionist David Copperfield to add some magic to his upcoming run of concerts in the UK." David's producer and friend Chris Kenner told us by phone today, "I don't have any idea where this came from. I have been getting hit with emails all day asking about this and there have been no such discussions." WHEW... I'm glad that we waited for secondary confirmation before posting anything.
