Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

Jennifer Hudson Left Us

In the Lurch!

Jennifer Hudson's no-show at the Michael Jackson tribute concert yesterday caught the show's producers completely off-guard ... especially since she was already paid to do the gig ... this according to sources close to the show.

JHud tweeted Saturday afternoon she wouldn't be doing the show -- citing "major production issues."

According to our sources, Hudson is claiming she felt the show's producers didn’t give her enough time with the music she was supposed to be singing. According to our sources, Jennifer received her music the same time as all the performers.

Our sources say JHud signed her contract and was paid in full.

A rep for Hudson confirms the reason she cancelled, but says producers "completely understood." Our sources say that's not the case at all.

This is simply the JACKSON SCAN FAMILY trying to get more money from MJ even in his death.

if it was all organized by the brothers, it may not be the most professional of cir****tances
and given that it's a tribute concert it's a cash grab
they should have made it a benefit concert- have the money go to a worthwile children's hospital/charity
and given performers the right amount of time to do their performance and the benefit justice
...that way, they would have probably had top stars and a top notch benefit

Just ask Ms THANG for the money back.

I'm sure that she will cheerfully return the cash.

Just ask the money back from her and move on.
Geez, I'm getting fed up with anything that has to do with dead people. Those people are dead, leave them, stop talking about them, no more tributes. I don't care if it's Michael Jackson, Elvis, Freddy Mercury, Bo Diddley, Sam Cooke, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis jr., Steve Jobs, Russell Armstrong, Steve Irwin or whoever.
I have lost many, many folks and life has never stopped for even one second. I haven't forgotten any of them, but refuse to let them determine the rest of my life.

I can't stand that Project Bitch...You could take the Bitch out the project but you can't take the project out the Bitch! She's known to pull this ****, she's obnoxious self-centered and thinks the world revolves around her. I used to love her but she needs to come back down to reality, your fans put you there and we'll take you down you wanna be bitch!
