The last thing an event like this should be doing is causing more family drama! So sad!
Although Katherine Jackson, alongside La Toya, Tito, Jackie, and Marlon, announced that they have planned a tribute concert for Michael Jackson, called Michael Forever: The Tribute Concert and scheduled at the Millenniium Centre in Cardiff, Wales on October 8th, both Jermaine and Randy are apparently not supportive of the event, and issued a statement shortly afterward calling it inappropriate!
“While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honors our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death. There will come a time and place for an amazing and deserving tribute to Michael. But we feel that the most important tribute we can give to our brother at this time is to seek justice in his name.”
So sad that even still, they all can't come to agreement.
Personally, we think that Michael would just want his family to get along first and foremost, not squabble over tribute concerts and court cases.
What do U think?? Should it still happen?
