According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Janet Jackson is being sued by her business managers for “unpaid services” that reaches a total of $238,593.
The lawsuit, which was filed against the 56-year-old Grammy-winning singer and several of her companies, dated back to 2017. The document states that in August of 2017 Jackson entered a “business management services agreement” with David Weise and Associates, a company that describes itself as “the largest business management firm in the country.” According to their website, they work alongside the world’s top artists in music, film, and television, as well as athletes, executives, entrepreneurs, and other high achievers, offering a sophisticated range of concierge-style services to meet their lifestyle management needs.
David Weise and Associates is accusing Janet of failing to pay the full amount she owed for their involvement in her career.
In 2018, the "Rhythm Nation" hitmaker and her brother Randy Jackson were sued by her former manager Danny O’Donovan for a very similar situation. He claimed that he was hired as the manager for Janet's “State of the World Tour” in 2016. According to TMZ, Janet and Randy agreed to pay O’Donovan $25,000 a month. Apparently he worked for 17 months but after the first five months, he stopped getting paid. A year later, the manager sued the pair for $300,000.
