Janet and Randy Jackson's ex-tour manager says the two owe him $300k.
Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson are being sued by their former tour manager Danny O'Donovan, who alleges the two owe him $300k in unpaid wages, according to TMZ.
O'Donovan was hired by the two to manage Jackson's "State of the World" tour in July of 2016 and was on a 17-month contract. TMZ reported that O'Donovan was to be paid $25k a month and for the first five months of the tour he was paid properly, but during the last 12 months, the payments stopped. Despite not being paid what he was owed, O'Donovan continued to work and is now suing for the $300k he never received. Janet and Randy Jackson have yet to comment on the situation.

Jackson's tour was a relative success, with Pollstar reporting that the 56-show tour was the 62nd highest-grossing tour of 2017, making $33.4 million.
It's been an interesting week for Jackson as it was announced that she will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside bands such as the Cure, Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, and even Def Leppard. In a statement by the organization, they said Jackson "explored social issues, themes of empowerment and self-confidence, and influenced generations with her stylized music videos with innovative choreography."
