Tito Jackson Accused of Ruining MJ Tribute

2/1/2010 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tito JacksonTito Jackson is accused of single handedly torpedoing a Michael Jackson tribute concert last year -- and now the guy behind the show is looking to settle the score.

A concert promoter named Roy Isaac has fired off a letter to Tito -- demanding he return a $7,500 deposit Tito was allegedly paid for a concert in Michigan -- a concert that never happened.

Isaac tells TMZ the whole thing fell apart, in part, because Tito refused to do any press for the show.

Now, Isaac has told Tito that he wants his money back -- in 30 days -- or else he'll sue.

Tito's rep tells TMZ that Tito never got the money and Isaac's beef should be with Jackson's former booking agent.

Ah Tito will just bill MJ's estate. 'His' tribute right? Good grief. Throw another on on the stack at Branca/McClains office.Why are these brothers so d@mn unorganized about everything they do?? Inherited their business skills from their daddy or what? Somebody better be protecting the kids money. That's all I care about. Katherine can give away all of 'hers' as far as I'm concerned but leave the kids pile alone!

if it wasn't for "daddy's business skills" there would be no Jackson 5. Like Michael's business skills were so much better. The only smart thing he did business wise was the catalog and even that was because paul mccartney advised him.

They were probably scared. The older cousins probably were lending moral support to Prince and Paris. That was all. They stood back and let them have the spotlight.

At least they weren't hogging the spotlight like Jermaine.

************************

Those cousins are Tito's boys, Taj, Taryll and TJ, otherwise known as 3T, a singing group. They collaborated with Michael on projects and Michael loved them very much. Michael had invited Taj to work with him in film after the London shows. They were devastated by their Uncle Michael's death. They haven't worked together in a while. Taj only recently decided he was going to go into film on his own, saying his Uncle Michael made you believe you could do anything. Michael is his inspiration. If you want to see them perform with Michael, look here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgolYfq4xvI

Michael had written recorded this song for his HIStory album...late 90's. 3T fell in love with it and Michael offered it to them for their new album at the time. They merged recordings for this one. Taj is the one with dreadlocks.

What's most important in this situation is their history. They understand the sudden and tragic death of a parent. Their mother, DeeDee, was also murdered while they were growing up. She and Tito were divorced at the time and she was murdered by a boyfriend. She loved her boys with all her heart and was completely devoted to them. Tito finished raising his boys alone. If there's anyone in that family who can understand and support Michael's children, it's these three. And they will. You can bet on it. They are rock solid and will be very positive influences. I hope Michael's three are spending a lot of time with Tito's three. They were perfect choices to support Prince and Paris last night. It's a little scary to be a little kid speaking in front of millions, don't you think?

Thank you TMZ for reminding me why I don't like black people or why Michael Jackson bleached his skin and wanted only white children. Actually, this story didn't remind me of why I don't like blacks. 90% of the negative stories is about some multimillion dollar black getting into the same trouble as a poor black. I feel sorry for those poor white children. They're living in the snake pit.

YOU KNOW I GET TIRED OF OTHERS BLAMING THIS FAMILY FOR EVERYTHING. THERE ARE OTHERS INVOLVED IN THIS CONCERT BESIDES TITO.IF THIS STORY IS TRUE. JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS BLAMING MICHAEL FOR THINGS BUT THEY KNOW THERE ARE OTHERS INVOLVED IN HANDLING MICHAEL FINANCES WHEN HE WAS ALIVE WHO COULD HAVE TRICKED MICHAEL AND THEM THE ONES WHO ARE TRYING TO GET MONEY FROM THE ESTATE. YOU ALL CANNOT KEEP BLAMING MICHAEL FOR EVERYTHING. MICHAEL HAD OTHERS THAT WORKED FOR HIM WHO HANDLE HIS BUSINESS THESE ARE THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE SUED AND LOOKED AT. SOUNDS LIKE TO ME THAT SOME OF THESE INDIVIDUALS THAT MICHAEL HAD WORKING FOR HIM MUST HAVE CUT MICHAELS THROAT AS WELL AS THE ONES THEY PROMISE THINGS TO. THERE ARE A LOT OF INDIVIDUALS WHO HANDLE OTHERS MONEY AND BUSINESS AFFAIRS WHO COULD LIE AND STEAL AND BLAME IT ON THE PERSON THEY ARE WORKING FOR. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THIS AND IT IS HAPPENING EVERYDAY NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE. THIS IS PROBABLY WHAT HAPPENED TO TITO IN THE MJ CONCERT TRIBUTE IF THIS MANAGER EVER SET IT UP. SO DON'T BLAME MICHAEL AND TITO FOR WHAT THEIR MANAGERS,BUSINESS INDIVIDUALS DO BEHIND THEIR BACKS. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE ANYONE WHEN IT COMES TO MONEY OR USING YOU TO GET WHAT THEY WANT. EVEN YOUR BUSINESS HANDLERS OR INDIVIDUALS YOU GO INTO BUSINESS WITH OR WHO WORK FOR YOU THAT YOU THINK YOU CAN TRUST. IN EVERY BUSINESS THERE ARE ONES THAT WILL CUT YOUR THROAT AT ANYTIME AND MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE THE BAD PERSON WHEN ACTUALLY THEY ARE THE ONES, BUT EVERYONE WANTS TO BLAME THE ONE WHOSE NAME IS POPULAR INSTEAD OF THE ONES WHO WORK FOR THEM. THIS IS MY OPINION AND I HAVE SEEN IT HAPPEN TO OTHERS. THATS WHY I WOULDN'T TRUST NO ONE WITH HANDLING MY BUSINESS OR MY MONEY. THERE ARE MORE CROOKS THAN HONEST PEOPLE TODAY COMPARED TO THIRTY YEARS AGO. THINK ABOUT WHAT I HAVE SAID BEFORE YOU CRITICIZE THIS FAMILY OR ANY OTHER FAMILY IN SHOW BUSINESS, MUSICIANS INDUSTRY OR IN EVERYDAY BUSINESS OR EVERYDAY BUSINESS. TRUST ONLY YOURSELF TO HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS AND WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IN LIFE.
