Jackson Family Divided Over MJ Tribute Concert

7/25/2011 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine and Randy Jackson are DEAD SET against the Michael Jackson tribute concert announced today by members of the Jackson family ... calling it "inappropriate" and "ill-timed."

0725_jacksons_BN
Katherine, La Toya, Jackie, Tito and Marlon all attended a press conference today to announce the show in Cardiff, Wales on October 8. Katherine said it would be a "world-class event."

But Jermaine and Randy don't see it that way -- releasing their own statement against the concert, saying, "We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death ... We feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event."

As of now, tickets go on sale August 4. The family has not announced who will be performing at the show.

When Jermaine was organizing his flopping tribute
now that was bad timing, the family and fans were still mourning and grieving and he wanted to throw a tribute for him just a few months after?
this is the best time to have the tribute concert, kathrine is in a strong position and knows what michael would have wanted. Jermaine and Randy just need to take a seat.

Totally agree!
Wales? If it at had been in London, Paris, Rome....

Can´t shake off the feeling that something is off.
Why don´t they announce the performers until one day before they release the tickets? Have these "big names" not yet agreed to perform?

And although I am not backing up Jermaine who seems to constantly complain against anything the family comes up with, he and Randy might know something that we don´t...

Does anyone else find it strange that this concert (and the other one that never materialized) is taking place in Wales, and not in the States? I think that speaks volumes about the whole (shady) situation

THEY ALL ARE SUCH A DISGRACE BUT HEY NO ONE LOVED HIM MORE THAN HER (!!!) AND ALL WHAT SHE IS ABLE TO THINK IS TO MAKE MONEY!!!! BAD TIMING BAD INTENTIONS THIS IS A MOTHER WHO LOVED HIM MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE, SHE BASHED HIM ON NATIONAL TV, SHE CHANGED HER VERSION MANY TIMES - NOT DRUG ADDICT DRUG ADDICT - SO IT HARMONIZED WITH HER LAWSUIT AND CONTINUED HER BASHING BUT WITH LOVE YOU KNOW!!! HIS CHILDREN ILLEGALLY FOREVER BIND (EHM.. SHE WAS AFRAID TO LOOSE MONEY...), PUSHED INTO THE SPOTLIGHTS AGAINST ALL MICHAEL'S WISHES PUTTING THEIR SAFETY AT RISK ETC. ETC. ETC. UNTIL THE NEXT ONE!!! THEY ALL ARE DEPLORABLE BUT KATHERINE HAS ALSO THE NERVE TO TALK ABOUT LOVE WHEN SHE IS JUST THE LESS SUITABLE!!! THEN THEY ARE NOT AT ALL AUTHORIZED BY THE ESTATE TO USE MICHAEL'S NAME!!! SO SHAMEFUL SO DISRESPECTFUL AND DISGUSTING!!!

the proceeds apparently are going to charity. If the proceeds were going to Jermaine and Randy they would be supporting this thing big time!

They probably won't show up, they don't want to do any of the work but you can bet they'll have their hands out for some of the money!!!!

I don't understand why they'd even announce a concert until everyone was on board to avoid all this nonsense overshadowing the "tribute". It's a shame the way this family continually mishandles things...it makes it hard to decipher their real motives. Justice for Michael and then let him RIP already.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

Why do they guys ALWAYS have sunglasses on? What are they trying to hide? It's rude to wear sunglasses inside.

Bad Timing? Like thier reality show just after his death was not? Is the timing bad because it will be at the same time as thier fathers promotional tour to hawk his cologne?
