Three of Michael Jackson's brothers have taken legal action against a businessman they allege duped them into signing 1,000 replicas of their late sibling's iconic jackets.
Marlon, Tito and Jackie Jackson added their signatures to copies of red leather coats worn by Michael in his Thriller and Beat It videos, and claim they were due $100,000 (£62,500) each as part of the deal with Steeve Bohbot.
The trio alleges Bohbot promised to pay them immediately but he changed the agreement so they would only receive the cash when the $2,350 (£1,469) jackets were delivered to Amazon.com for sale.
Bohbot reportedly told the siblings of a problem with the delivery to website bosses and now they have filed suit in a bid to get paid, according to Tmz.com.

Is this a joke? First Cardiff, then these fake jackets. This family should have learned from Michael's shrewd business acumen and perhaps they wouldn't be getting involved with these schemes. And shame on you all for involving Prince in this scam! Shame!

These three sibbling of Michael's Jackson should find a job and stop living off of Michael's name, they are lazy MORONS!!! I can't stand Marlon the least talented sibbling of the Jackson family. He is such a copy cat who had always copied Michael, his dance moves, his bahaviour and the rest of it. Marlon was always vert JELOUS of Michael's popularity, his charm, his charizma, his wealth and much more. I can't stand Marlon !, especially his stupid LAUGH!! Find jobs MORLONS!!!

Anything for money.... the Thriller and Beat It jackets (the real ones not replicas) were only worn by Michael, not by any of his brothers, yet they were willing to be part of this deal. I wonder what some of MJ's siblings were doing for a living before his tragic and premature death!
