The answer is: Thy both had the same manager, Gordon Mills who was quite controlling and unfair on his percentage of the profits.

Gordon Mills was also a songwriter who wrote many of Toms early hits including "It's Not Unusual". he was also responsible for changing the names of Tommy Woodward to Tom Jones and  Raymond OSullivan to Gilbert Osullivan.

While Tom Jones continued to allow Mills to manage and control his career, Gilbert refused to work with him after several "falling outs leading to lawsuits and a long hiatus from music for O"Sullivan..

Mills died in the mid 80's leading Jones to hire his son Mark Woodward and freed Gilbert OSullivan to resume his career.
