Michael Jackson's London Show

in Jeopardy

5/11/2009 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AllGood EntertainmentMichael Jackson's hailed London concerts may never happen -- if a new bunch of lawyers get their way.

We've learned AllGood Entertainment -- the company that was putting together a series of concerts with Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and their brothers -- has fired off a cease and desist letter to the people organizing Jacko's London concerts, demanding that the show not go on.

Here's what went down. In late 2008, Jackson's manager -- Frank Dileo -- signed a deal promising that M.J. would appear with his family on tour. Part of the deal -- Jackson was prohibited from making another concert deal for 18 months. But lawyers for the family tour claim after their deal was signed, Jackson went and signed up for his London concerts -- allegedly a violation of the 18-month blackout clause.

Lawyers for the family tour now want to block the London concerts. As for Jacko's defense ... we're told his position is that he never signed his name on the family tour deal. But we know his manager signed, and in the law an agent can often sign for the client.

So will the London show go on?Launch Photos

Stay tuned

Seems like lots of people have claimed to represent Michael Jackson. Are you positive that Dileo really was/is his manager?

why?    

Good God ! It's always somthing shady with this guy. What a friggin shame. He had the world by the tail . I have never seen a celebrity as self destructive as this clearly disturbed person. Dude is all wack. The very sight of him is distressing. Will we ever see the last of him? I hope he goes to London and never comes back!

I have said from the beginning, MJ will never, ever perform again. He doesn't have it in him. He is a washed up loser.

Ok MJ rocks! second point... he is the most glamorous person on the planet so you need to either get into it or shut up! Third...if his family tries to stop him from performing for his fans and making a comeback the world at large will hate them and they know this... they are just trying to make a veiled threat for their slice of the money pie. And trust with this much money at stake and MIchael's legacy attached, he will perform and the show will be great. So don't listen blindly to every little rumor and whisper. Michael has been trained for this career since birth, he is the King of Pop by divine right and he has decided that he wants to remind everyone of that right now.

jdjj    

Frank Dileo? He was Michael's manager like back in the 80s and there is no family tour because Michael and Janet have constantly denied it so this story is obviously wrong and made up!!!

Michael always seems to have black clouds over his head, everytime he tries to put something up some allegation surface...I hope everything turns out ok for him... despite what he's done in his personal life (which nobody knows what it's true or not) it's undeniable the guy is talented...I'd pay to see him live if he comes to Brazil again
