Diane Dimond On A Potential Jackson 8 Tour
August 17, 2009 – TheDailyBeast.com’s Diane Dimond spoke to ‘The Early Show’ co-anchor Harry Smith about speculation surrounding a possible Jackson family concert tour. Sources say Janet Jackson is reluctant to take part in a 10 city U.S. trek that would reportedly bring in $13 million collectively to the family. Janet would earn the largest piece of the pie at $4 million, with Jermaine, Jackie, Randy, Marlon and Tito making $1.5 million each. Janet’s sister La Toya would earn just $500,000, while her other sister Rebbie would make $250,000 in the AllGood Entertainment deal.
“Janet Jackson, the baby of the family, ironically now, has taken the position of Michael in the family. She is the primary bread winner, as was he in his heyday,” Dimond said, adding that the concert “may be the only way for the brothers to make money.”
