Another day, another Jacko lawsuit

By | Published on Friday 8 May 2009

I’m losing track of who’s suing Michael Jackson at the moment. I hope he’s not, or he could be in trouble. The latest lawsuit to add to the ever-growing list comes from the singer’s former publicist, Raymone Bain, who claims that Jackson has “failed to honour his obligations” under the terms of their contract.

Bain represented Jackson through some of his toughest episodes in recent years, including his 2005 trial for child abuse, and claims to have been promised 10% of any future deals made by the star. And with his upcoming O2 Dome residency reportedly bringing him £265 million in revenues, you can see why she might be keen for him to honour that promise.

In court papers filed in Washington DC, Bain says: “Mr Jackson and I have had a long, productive and mutually beneficial business relationship. Unfortunately, Mr Jackson has elected not to honour the financial obligations of our contractual relationship, despite my numerous attempts to amicably resolve this matter. I am sincerely disappointed in Mr Jackson’s failure to honour his obligations”.
