Al Green has filed a cease-and-desist order against his former producer DAVID GEST - because Gest used his name to promote a Memphis,Tennessee, concert the soul legend never agreed to attend.

The I'M SO TIRED OF BEING ALONE singer complains he first heard about December's (04) charity gig, DAVID GEST'S ALL-STAR HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA last month (OCT04) and was furious to discover his name was already on the poster promoting the event, reports website PAGESIX.COM.

JR RICH, head of publicity at Green's label, BLUE NOTE RECORDS, says, "Al never agreed to do this. The point is that Al lives in Memphis. He doesn't want people to think he agreed to do this and then just didn't turn up. WILLIAM MORRIS (Green's booking agent) has sent a cease-and-desist order to Gest."

Despite legal warnings from Green, adverts for Gest's gig still promise: "Famed producer returns to work after a year and a half with concert featuring Al Green, THE Doobie Brothers, Lou Rawls, Dionne Warwick, Mya, Crystal Gayle, Gloria Gaynor, Deborah Cox, TOPOL RECREATING 'FIDDLER ON THE ROOF."
