Tito's Agent -- MJ Tribute Failure Not His Fault

2/7/2010 3:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tito JacksonTito Jackson's hands are clean when it comes to last year's failed Michael Jackson/Motown celebration concert ... this according to Tito's agent.

Tito's agent, Peter Seitz, is responding to allegations made by the concert's promoter, Roy Isaac, who told us the show went belly up in part because Tito refused to do press for the show ... and then made off with a $7,500 deposit check.

Peter tells TMZ Tito did in fact do press for the failed show -- and believes the real reason why ticket sales sucked was because Isaac "never completed booking the show."

As for the $7,500 check -- Peter says he never gave it to Tito in the first place. Peter says he's holding on to the check and personally told Isaac he'll never see it again if he doesn't figure out a way to either reschedule the concert, or reimburse Tito for the money he wasted on airfare and other expenses.

Peter says Isaac should "apologize and retract the story."

After seeing the reality show, it's pretty clear why these things happen. These Jackson Bros start things and then don't see them through. That was the whole basis of the reality show...the failed 40th anniversary concert. They are all words and never back anything up with actions.

I'm gonna pull a Nancy Grace here and say WHOAH! hold on! Wait a minute! If Tito is holding on to the guy's check, why doesn't he just put a stop payment on the thing and shut the hell up? Two, if the check is over 6 months old isn't it automatically invalid anyway? You guys didn't say he cashed the check. You said Tito is "holding on to the check". What's the problem?

WHAT ABOUT JERMAINE HE WAS DOING A TRIBUTE IN VIENNA TOO, THAT DIDN'T COME OFF AND COST THE FANS DEARLY. WE LOST AIR FARES FROM ENGLAND AND HOTEL BOOKINGS. THE WHOLE FAMILY HAVEN'T GOT IT TOGETHER. I THINK JANET IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN DO A SHOW NOW.

I guess ole Tito will have to find a new way to exploit his dead brother. I guess there is always autopsy photos, I would even pay to see ole Wacko Jacko split open on a table.

We are not sure yet if Conrad Murray will be allowed to voluntarily surrender or if he will be arrested. We are also not sure what time either of these will happen. But we are prepared to protest in the event that he is not handcuffed then brought to court. "

Make your signs and banners and meet us at the courthouse on Monday. Keep an eye out on the news should anything change. And if we find out about any change of plans, we'll let you all know.

Please invite everyone who lives in Southern Californa to join this event. To keep from overcrowding, please don't invite those who cannot physically join us. Although their support is much needed, lets try to keep a decent headcount of who all might be there in person.
