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.

You should not be getting any money off your dead brother. Shame on you! Can't you earn a living on your own?

Possibly the most disgusting family in the country. They enabled a drug addicted pedophile and now they just try to profit off his death. These subhumans are nothng more than s*** and leaches.

The Jackson's are like the gang that couldn't shoot straight! everything they get involved with turns to crap. Maybe it is time to stop living off of their dead brother's memory and all go out and get real jobs and support your own kids. Katherine is too old for this stuff now, time for these guys to act like men

Wow, am I getting sick of these people. Always trying to get themselve on camera, always sueing someone. Ugh. They lived off MJ all of his life and they're still doing it. They'll be milking his kids for years to keep the $$$ coming in. What a weird family.

And this is the Karma that comes to bite you in the ass when you are trying to steal from your dead brother's children. Why don't you no talent pieces of garbage get a job flipping burgers? Its time to stop trying to live off your dead brother.

Boo Hoo! I am SO sick and tired of hearing the whining coming out of their mouths. There isn't a lick of talent in a single one of them; Michael got it all, obviously. Go away & shut up the useless bunch of you.
