Michael Jackson’s siblings are still in demand for a family tour. The desiring promoter is the same guy who was suing Michael right before he died.

Patrick Alloco of AllGood Entertainment sent a letter to Jermaine Jackson this past week asking him to intervene and bring his family the deal.

Alloco, aligned with Michael’s ex-manager Tohme Tohme, told Jermaine in the Aug. 11 letter: “All that I am asking of you is to arrange for me to deal directly with the family. The ‘middle man’ model that I have been subscribing to has failed and caused me great frustration. I spoke with Dr. Tohme [not a doctor, except to friends] this afternoon and forwarded him the above contract.”

The contract to which Alloco refers offers, unsolicited, the following amounts to Jackson’s siblings: $4 million to Janet, $1.5 to each of the brothers, $500,000 to LaToya, and $250,000 to Rebbie. Alloco would pay them that to perform in 10 U.S. cities, with an option for 10 more in Europe, and a bunch of miscellaneous stops in the Far East.

Alloco decided on the family members’ individual worths. It must have been not so amusing to La Toya and Rebbie.

Alloco tells Jermaine, in the letter obtained only by this column, that he actually thinks he spoke to Michael a few days before his death and got him to agree to joining the family. He also says that Tohme’s lawyer was drawing up a contract with Michael on the morning he died. Alloco obviously thinks this might have been possible even though he filed suit againt Michael for allegedly reneging on another agreement. The man is persistent.

Alloco also tells Jermaine that he can’t find anyone honest enough to deal with in the Jackson family’s inner circle. “Each seems to have his own agenda,” Alloco writes.

He couldn’t have put it any better.
