Janet Jackson has confirmed that she will not be attending a tribute concert to her late brother Michael Jackson because the tribute coincides with the Dr. Conrad Murray trial.
Her statement says:
“Because of the trial, the timing of this tribute to our brother would be too difficult for me.”
The show Michael Forever – The Tribute Concert is scheduled to go off Oct. 8 in Cardiff Wales, while the Murray trial begins on Sept. 27. MJ’s mom Katherine and some of the other Jacksons are scheduled to attend the tribute.
Your reasoning is totally understandable, Janet. We know this will be a very difficult time for you and your family.
