MJ tribute concert promoters accused of dodging $200K VIP plane ticket bill

October 15, 2011 - Washington

Organizers of Michael Jackson Tribute Concert have been accused of failing to settle a 200,000 dollars bill for VIP plane tickets.

Global Live - the company behind the event - hired Entertainment Travel Company to book plane tickets for the Jackson family, Christina Aguilera, her crew, Jamie Foxx, Heavy D, roughly 15 Global Live employees and others, a representative for the company told TMZ.Com.

In the process GL allegedly racked up a 200,000 dollars bill - which they were supposed to pay two weeks ago.

But the company insists they haven't gotten a cent, and now GL isn't even returning their phone calls.

Several members of the Jackson family are scheduled to fly back to the U.S. this Sunday, but Entertainment Travel is set to attack the concert saying they're going cancel the Jacksons' tickets if GL doesn't pay up.

However, Global Live CEO Chris Hunt claimed, "All bills are being reconciled and as they have been told, they will be completely paid in full."
