Michael Jackson - Jackson Brothers Settle Lawsuit Over Thriller Jackets
Three of Michael Jackson's brothers have settled their lawsuit against a businessman they alleged duped them into signing replicas of their late sibling's iconic jackets.
Marlon, Tito and Jackie Jackson added their signatures to 1,000 red leather coats, which were copied from ones worn by Michael in his Thriller and Beat It videos, and claimed they were due $100,000 (£62,500) each as part of the deal with Steeve Bohbot.
The trio took action against Bohbot last week (begs14Nov11) in a bid to get paid after the businessman allegedly agreed to only pay the siblings once the $2,350 (£1,469) jackets were delivered to Amazon.com for sale.
However the group has now put its legal troubles behind them, with Bohbot telling Cnn.com, "(I'm) relieved to clear up this misunderstanding. We have such an immense respect for the Jackson brothers and Michael's legacy and are pleased to have resolved this situation."
