This September’s highly anticipated Jackson 5 reunion at Madison Square Garden in New York will reportedly feature only four of the brothers, Reuters reports.
In a statement issued Monday by Marlon Jackson, brother Jermaine Jackson will not appear on stage for the reunion.
Jermaine Jackson had expressed disdain over the event’s “exorbitant ticket prices,” and had also complained about the fact that other artists were scheduled to appear with the Five while performing.
Event producer David Gest interpreted Jermaine Jackson’s comments as inappropriate and concluded Jermaine Jackson did not want to participate.
“I am very sorry for the confusion my brother Jermaine has caused,” Marlon Jackson stated. “We wish Jermaine all the best on his solo career.”
