Michael Jackson's brother Tito has been accused of letting down hundreds of kids by failing to appear at a talent show in Detroit, Michigan last weekend (13-14Apr13).

Tito Jackson reportedly signed up to audition 200 local children as part of the This Is It! Talent Search competition, but organisers allege the star didn't turn up for event in Detroit last Saturday (13Apr13).

Darrell Strickland, a promoter behind the contest, claims Jackson reneged on his promise and he now wants the star to hand back his fee, telling Tmz.com, "Over 200 kids were there expecting to see Tito and were all upset about him not being there. We really promoted this event... And now that he didn't show up, I want my money back."
