Michael Jackson will be reuniting with his sister Janet and The Jackson 5 for one night only.
The singer told TMZ.com that he’ll be performing a show with his family members at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, next year. He stands to earn $3 million from the gig, and Janet will get $1 million; their brothers will have to split $500,000 for their part in the show.
A concert date hasn’t been announced yet.
Michael had previously refused to do the show, arguing that he never signed a deal with concert organizers, AllGood Entertainment. However, Mijac’s rep did sign a contract with them.
The deal with AllGood included a blackout clause, which stated that MJ couldn’t book another show anywhere else for 18 months. But Michael is still moving forward with plans to perform a 50-show run at London’s O2 arena, starting this summer.
AllGood has threatened to sue the King of Pop if those shows go on.
