Fast Forward…

Duane Martin is accusing his estranged wife Tisha Campbell-Martin of fabricating abuse allegations to get custody of their kids.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Duane filed a declaration as part of his bankruptcy case, in which he is denying allegations he hid a $2 million home in Chatsworth, California from creditors as part of his bankruptcy.

In his declaration, Duane accuses Tisha and her brother having “manufactured a false claim of alleged domestic violence against the Co-Debtor which they filed with the police. Even Co-Debtor’s family law attorney would not sign his name on such a claim. The police saw the claim for what it was and did not pursue it.”

He adds, “Additional falsehoods were presented to the Family Law court in order for the Co-Debtor to obtain custody of their children. When it was clear that these falsehoods were not going to work, they were dropped and custody was awarded 50-50 to both parents.

Drake had previously performed the song in concert in the U.S. – for example, in Atlanta last November. The U.K. and U.S. shows had the same opening and closing numbers but omitted the Jackson-sampling song.

No explanation was given for the omission in Manchester, where Drake is scheduled to perform a second concert Monday night. But it comes in the wake of the controversy over “Leaving Neverland,” the explosive documentary alleging Jackson’s repeated sexual abuse of two boys he had befriended.

The two-part documentary was shown on British television last week. Jackson’s family took to local media and fans took to the streets to protest the airing of the docu
