Jackson Family Members

Find Your Own Way Home

TMZ has learned ... several members from the Jackson family are going to have to find their own way home from Wales -- because the company that was supposed to provide them with a flight back has pulled their tickets ... because of a HUGE outstanding bill.

As TMZ first reported, Entertainment Travel Company claims that Global Live (the company behind the Michael Jackson tribute concert last week) owes $200,000 for plane tickets the company  booked for the Jackson family, Christina Aguilera, her crew, Jamie Foxx, Heavy D, roughly 15 Global Live employees and others.

Now a rep for Entertainment Travel Company tells us they had no choice but to yank the tickets which were earmarked for two members of the band 3T (TJ and Taryll) and two of their children ... because of the unpaid tab.

The company rep says they held out for as long as they could and the next step is to contact a lawyer.

A rep for Global Live could not be reached for comment.

"Conrad Murray didn't comfort Jackson's kids in ER, family says"

So he lied (again) during the interview he gave to the cops!

You can probally kiss another so called tribute goodbye. They don't pay their bills, and that gets around very quick. People are going to want the money upfront. Jacksons won't do that. Chances are they will be sued. Blackeyed Peas and Hudson pulled out for a reason.

The tribute, still don't understand why Whales (no offence to Whales)why not the states? Didn't go so well. They didn't come close to making the sales expected.

The Jacksons outside of Rebe and Janet have been sponging off of Michael Jackson for years. Despite all the PR hype this was not a close family by any means.

Jackson whatever money he had left (stories were he was very heavily in debt)went to his estate. Not one cent to his family. His mom got the house and a monthly allowence and the kids a trust fund all through his estate. Katherine wanted to up her monthly allowence. Gee, what a surprise.

Very classy for your Son and Brother (who as been your meal ticket since 7).

not paying for something is theft, so this is criminal and should be dealt with accordingly.

Hate on the Jackson clan all you like, but this seems to be more of an issue with the concert promoter rather than the Jackson family. The promoter promised to foot the bill for their "round trip" airfare and reneged. I'm sure that certain "family" members made more than enough from the proceeds of this concert to pay their OWN airfare. Not all promoters have the resources to pay all the agreed upon costs "upfront" and rely solely upon the ticket proceeds to settle any outstanding obligations. I hope they have enough business "savvy" to settle all accounts "in full" before they return to the U.S. Collecting any "outstanding" debts may not be possible once they return home.

These Jacksons are such moochers. It's no wonder Michael wanted nothing to do with them while he was alive. Now they have a loophole because Mama Katherine holds the keys. I hope Prince, Blanket, and Paris realize they're not biologically Jacksons, find Debbie Rowe and Blanket's mom and get on with their lives away from those psychopaths.

The Jackson family are nothing more than slimy leaches who should be put down and done away with.

Who gives a rat's ass?

They all need to get on plane and fly into the side of a mountain. Enough with this freakish f**k family.

What I don't understand is why the Jacksons never did a tribute for their brother? (being the family per the Jacksons PR hype was so close) NOT.

So simple get on stage sing the Jackson5 songs, Michaels songs so on. A real true tribute.

What's the problem? Jeeze it's not like they are busy. Probally would have done much better than Whales and not possibly getting sued for 200 thousand dollars for plane fare.

Wonder what else the Jacksons didn't pay for that will pop up.

@onlinecriticball...

Michael Jackson was born August 29, 1958 and died June 25, 2009. That's the 2009.

This is the BEST news I've heard in a while. First, these boys are talentless or they could pay their bills. Second, they must belong to Jermaine and Tito because they were taught NOT to pay their bills. And third, I hope they get stuck over there! They are embarrassing the family. I wouldn't be surprised if Jermaine wasn't ripping Katherine off right now trying to get his boys home. A bunch of roaches that belong in the ghetto! Actually, Roaches have more talent than these BOYS! These BOYS need to grow up to be men, no learn from their BOY father! I hope they don't get those things growing on their cheeks like Jermaine does. He's one ugly mug!

Did anyone else think this article was written poorly? Confusing and bland...
