The King of Pop in contract breach?

The King of Pop looks like he's in a spot of bother.

IP Freely was one of many doubters of Michael Jackson's 50 date run of shows at the O2 (albeit my doubts were of a physical health nature rather than a legal one). Music Week has now reported that the shows are the subject of a legal wrangle.

All Good Entertainment Inc claims to have signed a deal with the King of Pop's manager Frank DeLeo stating that Michael would not play a show before July 2010 when he is contracted to perform with his sister Janet (and his brothers but I don't know who they are) in Texas.

As you will not have missed Michael's run of shows at the O2 start this July (that's '09 for those of you not paying attention), All Good are claiming a breach of contract and having apparently attempted to negotiate with Michael they are reportedly considering a claim.

IP Freely would be interested to read Michael's management agreement as Frank DeLeo should as a general rule not have the right to sign such a deal onn Michael's behalf........
