Jackson Family Shut Out of Jermaine's Plans

8/15/2009 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine JacksonJermaine Jackson is learning a hard lesson -- the Jackson family doesn't take kindly to kinfolk who make promises on their behalf without even bothering to tell them.

You know the big flap over the Vienna Tribute concert -- where Jermaine was spearheading a special show and touting that members of Michael Jackson's family were behind it? Well family sources tell us the family is ticked that Jermaine used them to sell tickets. The family, we're told, never agreed to participate. In fact, Tito told us he was never even invited.

The family isn't happy with J.J. because the concert may now be in jeopardy and stories are being written that the brood caused the concert to crumble.

Bottom line -- Jermaine was out on his own (again) pitching his stuff and the family was out of the loop.

9. I wanted to vomit when Jermaine sang Michael's song, "Smile", at the funeral. Because we all know what kind of opportunistic creep Jermaine really is, there was no doubt in my mind that the entire purpose of his "performance" at Michael's funeral, and the tears, were to show-case himself... hoping, I'm sure, that someone would hear him and book him right at the end of the funeral. Creepy, creepy, and thoroughly disgusting.

denvercat, you are a lady after my own heart!
What? A tear? I didn't see a real tear, I saw some attempt at making one appear, like most of the rest of the family. But tear? No tear did I so. But I did see him toss a rose, just like out of the scene from "The Godfather"

I agree with you guys, 6, 7 and 8. Reading your posts, I just remember that MJ was a member of a creepy family. It is complicated.
After all, I just miss Michael.

he's really too much

promising all this talent before asking if they were free or willing.

saying the brothers would perform

ET as much as I hate them when revealing the ALLGOOD jackson 8 offer "reports" that a family insider says there is no way in HECK Janet would do it. I hope she's learned from what happened to MJ

AND has a good therapist

I believe it about the Masons also!! I will not watch or support ANYTHING these Jackson vultures do!! If you read Michael Jackson: The Magic The Madness The Whole Story...you will understand why...

Mikes family treated him like garbage! They are some f*cking jokes!! Always looking for a way to cash in on his fame and he knew it and wasn't happy about it either...they'd always use his mom to bait him up for money and to do shows and tours that he didn't want to do. Than Jermain put out an album around the time Mike put out Bad and he made a song bashing Michael about his skin color...he of all people should have known and sympathized with his brother having vitiligo...oh...but he is also the same brother who had sex with groupies in front of a 9 or 10 year old Michael! Speechless...no wonder Mike had so many issues...he had no one to trust...if you can't trust your own gawd damn family who can you trust!!!! RIP Michael these vultures are gonna get what is coming to them!!

Yeah I don't doubt that Mike was murdered in the end he was trying to expose a lot of what was going on in the music business, political areanas etc. They knew people would listen becuse Mike was sooo big and has such dedicated fans..
We still hear you loud and clear Michael they couldn't silence you!

Crazy thing is how Jermaine doesn't have a CLUE how inapropriate his behaviour have been

Grieving people cannot hide their grief, even if they try to be stoic it comes out
Like poor Janet when she spoke at the BET awards
Janet...no other statement except initially through her publicist saying she was devastated to learn of the death of her brother


Jermaine and Joe are just calm and cool...smiling
just nuts

His current wife is loaded Halida. Its not her responsibility but why can't he try and support his 8 kids instead of leaving half of them at the encino compound.

LOVE that the estate executors have come out and stated that this event has nothing to do with the estate. oops might not be able to sing any of MJ's songs or put his "likeness" anywhere, LOL

MJ BRILLIANT WILL just brilliant

Jackson clan sucks...not all of them but the ones who did Mike wrong time and time again! Families are supposed to stand up for you and have your back...these people ran Michaels life into the ground. I read that book by Taraborelli and Michael even talks about it during a private phone conversation recorded unbeknown to him by a "friend" some friend that was taping a private conversation... he basically says it is all true what is said in the book. The Jacksons are trying to profit off his death we all know that...people should boycott anything they try to do...his kids will be fine he had a will so no problems there...just boycott those Jackson deadbeats!
