The highly anticipated Jackson 5 reunion scheduled for this fall might be hitting a major roadblock after reports surfaced that Michael Jackson has been shorting his brothers. According to a Page Six report, Jackson owes his brothers Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and Jackie roughly $840,000 in royalties from their Jackson 5 hits. Despite the fact that Jackson has been acquitted of charges stemming from child molestation allegations, he has not made any attempt to pay his brothers. According to the report, the Jackson brothers have not been able to speak with him since the child molestation case closed three years ago. With an upcoming lifetime achievement (Icon) award presentation at this years BMI Urban Awards, Jackson who is reportedly in a wheelchair, will likely be a no show, stifling fans and industry heads who were looking forward to a Jackson 5 reunion of sorts. The BMI Urban Awards will be held September 4th.
