Are the Jackson brothers really performing in Jamaica or what?

We're still not totally sure. Depending on who you listen to, the answers seem to vary.

Yesterday, TMZ reported that Jermaine Jackson would be joining his brothers Tito and Jackie Jackson onstage at the 17th annual Jamaican Reggae Summerfest in Montego Bay, but the performer was singing a different tune when E! News caught up with him on a Friday afternoon shopping spree.

Jackson's choice words for the ever accurate gossip hounds? "No. TMZ needs to get their facts straight. We're not going to Jamaica."

So there you have it. It's a no-go for Jermaine, but does that "we" apply to the rest of the family affair?

Apparently not, because according to Summerfest spokesperson Damian McGann, "Both of the brothers will perform on Saturday night. This is dedicated to the memory of Michael."

Guess we'll just have to wait and see which Jacksons actually take the Jamaican stage next weekend.
