BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Michael Jackson's legacy never left, but a kind of comeback is coming. A series of major court victories have brought an end to serious crises around the business of the King of Pop.

The co-executor of his estate John Branca tells The Associated Press in an interview that it's time to get back to promoting him again.

Branca says the first priority is restarting the Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, scheduled to resume in August after a pandemic pause.

Then comes the delayed debut of "MJ: The Musical," a show inspired by Jackson's life.
