Jermaine Jackson has fuelled speculation he has fallen out with his brothers by refusing to show up for a scheduled photoshoot in New York.
The singer was due to join siblings Tito, Marlon and Jackie for a promotional session to launch an upcoming reality TV show - but he cancelled at the last minute, due to an eye infection.
And Marlon has revealed to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight he was more than a little frustrated: "He's got pink eye, and I told him that when I see him, he's gonna have a purple eye."
Jermaine will be photoshopped into the promotional picture.
Rumours of a family rift started last month (Aug09) as Jermaine tried to finalise a tribute to his late brother Michael in Austria. Reports suggested the family hated the idea and refused to be a part of the Vienna show.
And Tito has confirmed there were issues, stating, "We're still mourning. Some time maybe in a year, a year and a half from now, it makes a little more sense for us to do something as a unit."
The concert has since been postponed due to a lack of big names.
