Jacko sued in bid to put off London comeback gigsJune 11th, 2009 - 12:13 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 11 (ANI): Michael Jackson has been slapped with a lawsuit filed by a music promoter, alleging his appearances in London this year would breach a previous contract.
AllGood Entertainment Inc claimed it had inked a deal with Jackson’s manager, Frank DiLeo, in November according to which the singer was committed to make a US appearance this summer.
The New Jersey-based company alleged, the King of Pop, under the agreement, is not supposed to perform before that show, reports The Telegraph.
AllGood Entertainment contended the singer’s 50-run shows, due to begin at London’s O2 Arena in July, breach the company’s agreement with DiLeo.
The company is now seeking at least 20 million dollars in compensatory damages and at least another 20 million dollars in punitive damages.
Meanwhile, Jackson’s organisers for London shows AEG Live have dubbed the allegations pointless and Jackson is yet to comment on the matter. (ANI)
