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.

Michael Jackson isn't even dead, jeez. He faked his death, duh! So the trial is ridiculous and so is the tribute.

Too comical that the most untalented bunch are throwing a tribute. And pretty ironic that Marlon is involved - he was the only sibling that you never saw supporting his brother and any of his trials - and he's part of a tribute - go back to bagging groceries Marlon!

Who cares anymore? Really? I guess his family will do anything for the spotlight, I mean, they have been nothings for way too long.

All they want is few more bucks to THEM via his death. Personally I could care less. They are losers including MJ.

They do not need to do a MJ tribute. They do not have the talent that MJ had. Also, they will not be able to attract top celebrities that would be suitable to participate in such an event.

Jermaine is probably miffed that he wasn't asked to be the headliner.
