Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson are facing a lawsuit from a former tour manager who claims they owe him $300,000.

Danny O’Donovan has filed a lawsuit against Janet and Randy, claiming they hired him in 2016 to be the tour manager for Janet’s State of the World tour.

According to TMZ, O’Donovan’s work with the Jackson siblings started off fine, but quickly turned sour.

According to legal documents, the Jackson’s were to pay O’Donovan $25K a month for his work on the tour, which spanned 17 months.

While he was paid the promised amount for the first five months, he never got paid for the work he did in 12 months that followed, which he’s suing to recover.

TMZ has reached out to the Jacksons, but neither of the siblings have commented on the lawsuit at this time.

The State of the World tour is the eighth tour by the 52-year-old singer, in support of her 11th studio album, 2015’s Unbreakable.

The tour’s first North American leg kicked off in September 2017 at the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana.

After three months of practically non-stop touring, the first leg wrapped up in mid-December 2017 at Atlanta’s Philips Arena.
