It didn't take long for the latest rumored Jackson 5 reunion to get shot down: A day after Jermaine Jackson said the family was getting back together, Michael Jackson squashed the idea, saying he's currently in the studio and won't participate in any reunion. "My brothers and sisters have my full love and support, and we've certainly shared many great experiences, but at this time I have no plans to record or tour with them," Michael said in a statement. "I am now in the studio developing new and exciting projects that I look forward to sharing with my fans in concert soon." So while we're not getting a Jackson 5 tour, at least there's a King of Pop tour to look forward to. Meanwhile, little sister Janet continues to struggle with her own Rock Witchu tour. Rather than reschedule a date at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut (originally postponed because of Jackson's vertigo, Janet has canceled that show altogether, reportedly due to poor ticket sales. This comes only a few days after opening act LL Cool J bailed as the opening act due to "scheduling conflicts."
