Janet Jackson Sued by Ex-Tour Manager for $300K

New York, NY - August 18, 2018: Janet Jackson celebrates release of single Made For Now during 44th annual Harlem Week at St. Nicholas Park

The Jackson family is riding high off of the recent news of Janet Jackson being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, she and brother Randy Jackson now have to deal with a new lawsuit filed by an ex-tour manager.

Danny O’Donovan has filed legal documents obtained by TMZ claiming the siblings hired him in July 2016 to be the tour manager for Janet’s State of the World tour. They reportedly agreed to pay O’Donovan $25,000 a month, with the manager staying on board for 17 months.

For the first five months, payments were made regularly but then stopped. O’Donovan claims he continued to work for a year and is now suing for the remaining 12 months of salary, totaling $300,000.
