MICHAEL JACKSON is being sued by his ex-publicist over the money the King of Pop has earned in ticket sales for this summer’s O2 concerts.

Raymone Bain says Jacko agreed to hand her 10% of the £50M gained in advance sales for the gigs, which start in July, but that he has so far failed to do so.
“Mr Jackson has elected not to honour the financial obligations of our contractual relationship, despite my numerous attempts to amicably resolve this matter,” Bain said in prepared statement.
“I am sincerely disappointed in Mr Jackson’s failure to honour his obligations.”
Jackson is a veteran of the being-sued game.
Among those who have sought payments from the singer via the courts are Ola Ray, who played Jacko’s date in the Thriller video, John Landis, the director of Thriller and Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, son of the King of Bahrain, who settled out of court over a £4M dispute.
