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.

I believe Jennifer. Many of those who attended the concert complained that performers seemed "under-rehearsed." Just becuase they didn't give ANYONE enough time, and Jennifer is the only one to tell them "stuff it!," doesn't mean Jennifer is to blame.

Hey moron, she took the money and ran. Her reasons are irrelevant unless she gives the money back. You don't sign a contract and get paid, AND THEN BAIL. But I guess your another one of those that takes a government handout. SHE HAS TO PAY THE MONEY BACK. Freaking idiots commenting here.

Yo "reality", (LOL)

Where did TSIG say they thought she didn't and shouldn't have to pay the money back, f*cktard?

So now everyone else knows that being a CHITFORBRAINS MORON is your "reality".

Man, I love when these complete dumbazzes think they can call anyone else a moron ... MOST especially when they post PROOF they are paranoid wastes of space morons online as well as IRL, themselves. LMAO!

VERY unprofessional to accept, sign the contract, take the money knowing full well the timescale. I reckon it is more than lack of rehearsal time.

If you watched Oprah Behind the Scenes with JH, you'll know this is her MO. She is not dependable and her reputation is starting to precede her. This shouldn't really be a surprise to anyone who's watched her antics. This is what she does.
