Three of Michael Jackson's brothers -- Marlon, Jackie, and Tito (left to right) -- have filed a lawsuit against a guy who they say duped them into signing 1,000 replicas of the famous Michael Jackson "Thriller" and "Beat It" jackets.

According to a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- the 3 bros were promised $100,000 each for their signatures on replicas of the iconic, red, leather jackets that MJ wore in his "Thriller" and "Beat It" videos.

The brothers claim Steeve Bohbot and the other defendants were supposed to pay as soon as the ink was dry, but they allegedly changed the deal and said they would pay when the jackets were delivered to Amazon.com for sale.

According to the suit, Bohbot claimed there was a problem with delivery to Amazon, but the brothers say it was just a lie.

Bohbot's lawyer had no comment.

Dear Lord. A fool and his money are soon parted, for this outlandi*****em! Guaranteed to make you look like one of the Jetsons. You know, they might have sold, back in the 80's, for around 300.00, IF Michaels signature was on it.

Maybe it's time the 'brothers' made some money on their own talents and efforts, vs. trying to finance their own lives and investments with their 'baby' brother's talents, hard work and popularity! I guess envy and opportunity goes a long way when the person your scavenging is no longer able to have a say!

I hope this suit gets thrown out of court. This family is nothing but a bunch of leeches, hoping to make more and more money off their deceasedd brothers gifts and fame. As far as I am concerned, if they got "scammed" it is all about karma. They deserve no support.
