Michael Jackson Facing Lawsuit For Reneging On Concerts

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is facing a lawsuit again! Israeli concert agent, Marcelle Avran is suing Michael for not showing up at two scheduled concerts for the 31st of December 1999. 

Avram's lawyer, Ronald Gutman said that his client, who raised the lawsuit at a court in Santa Barbara, California, is asking for $21.2 million for canceling the concerts and an undisclosed amount in compensation.  

Avram verifies that the famous pop singer signed a contract in January 1999 to perform four concerts; two in Seoul and Munich and two on new Years eve in Sydney and then Honolulu, taking advantage of the time difference. 

The lawsuit also included that the reason behind Michael's breach of contract is a "profit loss" in the first two concerts, which took place in October 1999. 

Gutman added that "Avram was forced to explain Michael Jackson's irrational behavior…and pay his bills. The result was that my client is now facing various lawsuits." 

Avram, who owns the Mama and Roe Concert Agency, declared on Friday 23, his insistence on going through with the lawsuit and placing its details in the Swedish Tsetung Newspaper.
