La Toya Jackson’s latest unexpected career move will set her up for life, financially. The black sheep of the Jackson family supposedly is getting more than $5 million for headlining at the Moulin Rouge in Paris for a year.

Meanwhile, (Jack) Gordon just lost a client, Richard Cowsills, the only member of the squeaky-clean Cowsills family that wasn’t allowed to sing along in their bubble-gum hits of the ‘60s.

Cowsill appeared with La Toya, whose recent book accused her father of sexual abuse on “The Maury Povich Show” as a fellow victim of celebrity child abuse, and Gordon quickly signed him to a personal contract.

But Cowsill, hoping to launch a singing/acting career at the age of 42 has fired Gordon, claiming he didn’t provide a voice coach or acting lessons as promised. “He is a Svengali,” says Cowsill, “a weaver of tall tales and broken promises.”
