However, they broke up in June 2008, citing their hectic work schedules.

Abdul was first discovered by The Jacksons. Few members of the band had watched her while she was attending a Los Angeles Lakers game. She was then signed to do the choreography for the video to their single "Torture". "My only problem was how to tell the Jacksons how to dance," Abdul later recalled. "Imagine me telling them what routines to do. I was young, I was scared. I'm not quite sure how I got through that." This success led to Abdul's career of choreographer in music videos. It was also due to the success of the video that Abdul was chosen to be the choreographer for the Jacksons' Victory tour. It is true that she is earning a huge salary from her career; however her real time net worth is unknown to the press.
