Katherine Jackson

LIVID Over Unpaid Workers

At MJ Tribute Concert

11/16/2011 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson
Katherine Jackson is upset she had anything to do with the recent Michael Jackson Tribute concert -- telling TMZ, Global Live better take care of the workers they allegedly failed to pay.

Scores of crew members recently went on Twitter to slam Global Live -- the concert producers -- and insist the company stiffed them after they busted their asses for the event.

Katherine's lawyer tells us, "After Mrs. Jackson did all she could to help promote and make this a great event for all of Michael's fans, she is extremely displeased to hear that concert promoters have allegedly failed to pay their bills."

The lawyer adds, "Katherine is hoping that they step up and take care of their obligations." So far no word back from Global Live.

As long as she gets her money, I doubt she gives a f*ck about some lowly manual laborers.

I've heard just about enough of the Jackson family for at least 10 years.

If it bothers her that much maybe she should make it right. Instead of lining the pockets of lawyers she might try using the lawyer fees to pay the crew members.

Well perhaps she could make it right, rather than paying her lawyer the big bucks to speak for her, pay the workers.

Well, if the folks at Global are young enough, maybe her and Joe can go over there and beat them with belts.

What I Think    

Global Live failed to pay some of their bills? Who do they think they are...the Jackson family?

Workers were white. That is why they were not paid.

MJ fans knew in advance this concert was a scam. It crystal was clear by reading Global Lives website. Since LaToya was behind this concert with Global Live, she should pass around the collection plate to all the Jackson family members that got paid. You sure don't hear any of them complaining do ya? Doubtful the charities received a nickel. Right LaToya? It's your charity that got cheated.

Katherine is too gullible and still hasn't learned that Howard Mann and Melissa Johnson are scamming her also. That is why she shouldn't be rearing Prince, Paris and Blanket.

WOW - bunch of hatred today in comment - oops that's right this is TMZ.... how about some of you with negative thoughts be sure that the information you have in your head is accurate before basing or voicing an uneducated opinion. If you were expected to pay someone else's financial obligation that arose out of profits that other person earned - would you - honestly? doubt it. Why do you people make jokes out of peoples lives especially when you don't know facts - only media and tabloid lies that you have allowed to reside in your head. Research for yourself... just like this article - how do you know it is fact? just because TMZ printed it on the internet??? come on - wake up
