LKL WEB EXCLUSIVE: Jermaine Jackson on His New Mission

Posted: 04:18 PM ET

CLICK HERE to comment on Jermaine's interview with Larry tonight!

Jermaine-Jackson-LarryThe tragedy of my brother's death is still with me.  But in his death, I have found a mission for my life.  My existence is now dedicated to spreading Michael's message.  Michael had a unique place in the world.  He not only did good, but taught others how to do the same.  This only magnifies his loss to the world.

I want to make people aware of the humanitarian side of Michael.  I want to show them how his true emphasis wasn't music, or performing; it was improving the world.  Understand this, and you begin to understand the essence of who my brother was.

Michael wanted to help people see the problems that are destroying our world.   That's what he was about, and what HIS upcoming shows were about.  He was trying to teach through his lyrics, video and performance.  He wanted to use every part of himself to show us what we are capable of becoming.  His goal was to demonstrate to people that if we all just try to make world a better place, it will be.

Michael did charity work all his life – since we first started performing as the Jackson 5.   He quickly learned talent alone means nothing – it's what you do with it that really matters.  What are you doing to make things better for other people?  In grasping this, Michael found his purpose:  Entertain and educate at the same time.

Another Jackson riding Michaels coattails. Will they ever tire of exploiting him?

Sharon P.   August 7th, 2009 5:06 pm ET


How do I get on board? I was never really into Michael's music, Dancing yes, but, now that I have listened, I have become very passionate over his message of a better world. That is what he was about, he was more amazing than anyone ever knew. My teenage girls I am raising since their mother past away, just don't get it! They don't understand why Aunt Sharon has become so into Michael Jackson since his passing and cry's every time she hears his most meaningful songs. How can I help and get on board to help this world be a better place and pass along Michael's message?

Lori   August 7th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

Larry, I am so happy that you are having Jermaine on tonight's program. It will be wonderful to hear Jermaine's rememberances of his brother. My thoughts and prayers are with the Jackson Family at this time; they must be inconsolable.

Karen   August 7th, 2009 5:32 pm ET

We all love you Michael. No matter what negativity people throw at you even in your death. Thank you Jackson family for letting us love Michael, grow accustom to his god-given talents and absorb the humanitarian energy he bestowed upon us. not even death is strong enough to keep him out of our minds and hearts.

Lisa S   August 7th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

This posting has nothing new than the previous posting with the same head title.

Why two postings with the exactly same contense?

Joanne Osinkowski Ontario Canada   August 7th, 2009 5:50 pm ET

I pray for Peace for the Jackson Family!

Maisa, brasil (BR)   August 7th, 2009 5:54 pm ET

Malaika   August 7th, 2009 6:02 pm ET

i ddnt like alot of stuff Jermaine said on preview clip... has AEG been spoon bending you Jeramine???

Gregory P.   August 7th, 2009 6:21 pm ET

Larry can you please ask Jermain if he is going to perform again live in the near future? He is a great talent in his own right. People don't realize that. I just want to say that I hope that the family is doing as well as can be expected at this time.

etket   August 7th, 2009 6:31 pm ET

Michael Jackson was gift from God even he was the most caring Humanitarian.I wish those who did not know what he meant to our Globe he was the greatest pride and king of music never lived before.

Karen Clark   August 7th, 2009 6:33 pm ET

Larry King. I wrote a poem for Micheals children and I would like it, if you could give it to the family , maybe some day music can be put to it It is called DADDY it goes like this. where is my daddy, Oh! where did he go? I love my daddy, I miss him so. When I was born , he held me tight. & when he died, He did not fight. But where is my daddy? Oh where did he go? The angles came, here is no one to blame . Where is my daddy? I love him so. Wher is my daddy? Where did you go? Please help me daddy, watch over me. Don't let me gorget you, Don't let that be. Where is my daddy? Oh where di you go? Please Daddy don't forget me. I miss you so. Thank you.

Catherine   August 7th, 2009 6:40 pm ET

Dear Jermaine,
I know that most of the publicity since Michael's passing has been sensationalized, but I choose to believe only the good about him. Some of the bad press, however, has a silver lining to it, at least for me. All the press about the prescription drug use has opened my eyes to just how many drugs my doctors at the VA hospital have had me taking, 22 different prescriptions at the same time. Thanks to the publicity, I'm now off all but 6, and I feel better than I have in years, even with cancer. Michael will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for sharing him with the world, it's a better place because he was a part of it for a brief time.

Medina   August 7th, 2009 6:43 pm ET

What are his thoughts on the fact that Michael will not find his peace at Neverland?
When will Michael be buried?

JJ Reinhart   August 7th, 2009 6:46 pm ET

Jermaine is NOT riding any coattails. His GENUINE AFFECTION for Michael speaks VOLUMES as a brother! I believe in the good intentions of peoples hearts no matter what the cynical views speak. I feel they are trying to get the WORLD to realize WHO Michael TRULY WAS...not the media spin or even the OUTDATED INFO from the criminal court files! This rehashing of NEGATIVITY has to end!

mary g   August 7th, 2009 6:58 pm ET

It is time for closure. The family needs to put aside all of their petty issues, including the money, and give Michael a proper burial NOW.

annette   August 7th, 2009 7:01 pm ET

Dear Jermaine,

I am deeply sorry for your loss and the Jackson family. My condolences. The years that I have been a Michael Jackson fan, I have always believed in him not just as a entertainer or icon but as a person who was always willing to help others. My whole life I have always told people listen to what MJ is singing. He sending a message to people about what is going on in the world, such as gang violence, war, children being hungry etc. His message was that we as people living on this earth should be helping one another with the god above us and guiding us. MJ has said that life or love is magical and blissful. Jermaine, if there is any way that I can help with your mission please let me know. I do not know how to sing or dance but I am a nurse who truly believes that giving ones self to help others is truly awarding. I have listened to his songs. The emotions, and feelings that MJ had were truly strong and geniune. It felt like I understood MJ on a personal level. MJ gave this sense of not magic, but the feeling of that we are all people that should not be judged in any way. To always look and listen for the truth from the person . No matter what we as people should accept one another no matter what life entails. One thing I do believe is MJ had the kind of special love, that he did share with certain people but wanted other to all see and feel what he did. MJ just wanted to be treated with the respect, trust and to find the one true love who would share and understand him, the world, but just to love him for who he was. He was just Michael Jackson, not just a star, dancer or whatever but just him as a person. He was a man who had a romantic heart but shy also had the strength and dertermination to stand up in what he believed in. I admire him for that. if please if i can help in your mission, i would be honored. I do have one question what was the link bracelet that MJ wore on his left wrist? If it is personal I understand. MJ liked his privacy , i respect that for him and his family.

lieutenant norals IV   August 7th, 2009 7:04 pm ET

Mr King would do you know the story of Lavena Johnson. The 5-foot tall, 100-pound woman had been struck in the face with a blunt instrument, probably a weapon. Her nose had been broken, and her teeth knocked back. There were bruises, teeth marks and scratches on the upper part of her body. Her back and right hand had been doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire. Her genital area was bruised and lacerated, and lye had been poured into her vagina. The debris found on her suggested her body had been dragged.
Someone need to tell this story.

Toni   August 7th, 2009 7:06 pm ET

mary g

I dont think trying to find out what or killed their brother, son, ANN DAD, are "petty" issues. What kind of heartless person are you? Do you not think they would like to see him buried too? My God, you sound just like the media and tabloids. When the autopsys are done, they will bury him. They're not stupid!!!!!

Lori   August 7th, 2009 7:13 pm ET

Toni!! I can hardly wait for the show 🙂

Wendy Dalgetty   August 7th, 2009 7:27 pm ET

My sincere condolences to the Jackson Family......and my thanks for sharing Michael with the world...he will be sadly missed. I read today that he will be buried at Forest Lawn and feel sad that he won't be taken home to Neverland.....I honestly believe that is where he belongs.

I know there was a time when Michael felt it was tainted, but I believe deep in his heart he always loved it – or he wouldn't have fought so hard to keep it.

I pray Jermaine that you are able to turn things around and help your family see that Michael needs to be taken home and that the folks who live in the Los Olivos area stop fighting and allow Michael to be brought home to his beloved Neverland. God bless your family & RIP Michael.

Toni   August 7th, 2009 7:37 pm ET

Me either Lori. I wonder if Nicole has her popcorn ready. 🙂

Toni   August 7th, 2009 7:38 pm ET

I figured they would all be on here by now. Linda NY was a little while ago, but left for a bit.

Stan   August 7th, 2009 7:42 pm ET

This topic is getting old real fast. Many, many more famous and more important people have past away in the past few weeks and all of them together aren't getting as much media coverage especially from Larry and other entertainment oriented socalled news shows. I liked the Jackson 5 and Michael even through his many transformations but I think the news and entertainment media are beating this topic and Michael into the ground. Let him go! Let him rest

Dianne   August 7th, 2009 7:42 pm ET

It's about time the story of Michael's deeds was made more public. He had amazing talents. but just as amazing was his capacity to give to the world. He had a heart big enough to wrap around the entire earth. He gave tirelessly, selflessly, endlessly of himself. In his own words, " I do as many hospitals as I do concerts. I do as many orphanages as I do concerts. But, because it's good news the press don't want to cover it. They only want bad news." What a shame the press didn't recognize all of the good he did while he was still alive.

Lori   August 7th, 2009 7:44 pm ET

I wonder if Nicole will have the nerve to call in!

JMC   August 7th, 2009 7:46 pm ET

I think a good mission for someone in that family would be to work for legislation on regulating the addicts ability to obtain drugs from multifple doctors. Afterall it is not totally a doctors fault although most are so ignorant when it comes to the disease of addiction but a unified record system of a patient and education in medical school about prescriptions would be a great help to our world. Unfortunately the drug companies don't want any restraints on addicts because they benefit so greatly from the profits off the sales. I would love to see Jermanine take this on. It would be so germaine. Afterall, most of us know that Michael's image has been objectified enough and why create a religion out of him now that he is dead.

Sharon - London, Canada   August 7th, 2009 8:25 pm ET

Larry will you please ask Jermaine if he knows whether any of Michael's music that has been stored in vaults will ever be released.

chloe   August 7th, 2009 8:30 pm ET

I remember the day Michael died, I think AOL reported that his dad was at his house that morning. Some reporter then talked to Joe Jackson about Michael later in the afternoon/early evening (while Joe was in Vegas) before TMZ said he had died. This sounds pretty weird to me. Why was Joe Jackson at Michaels house if they weren't close, and, what time was he there? Didn't the cook say Michael didn't get up until 10:00 am? Wasn't the 911 call about noon time? Also, I only heard the report of Joe being at Michael's home the day the news broke, I never heard it being reported again. Doesn't this all sound very strange??

Gail   August 7th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

Jermaine is on his OWN mission...a life-long paycheck!!

Alexis   August 7th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

Jermaine or Larry:

How do you respond to the L.A. Sheriff's department being the one to investigate this homicide when it was the L.A. Sheriffs department that conducted the investigations of molestation against him. How much trust do you have in the L.A. Sheriff's department to conduct a thorough and accurate investigation into this homicide? They've already missed what is apparently a very important piece of evidence, the blood stained shirt. How does that shirt play into this and why wasn't it collected from the first day?

It seems to me that the investigation has already had it's mishaps and could thwart any real efforts into holding fully accountable whomever is responsible for this. The L.A. Sheriff's department, it seems, was racially motivated according to Michael, into persuing and embarassing Michael once. It doesn't give me much confidence that they have the best interest of Michael to find justice now into his death.

It seriously concerns me, does it not you or your family?

Heather   August 7th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

Michael and his dad were not on bad terms contrary to the sensationalization of the media dredging up their past issues. He was in Vegas when he got the news. If you recall he was not seen until later in the day arriving in Encino. This is just another story that the tabloids have got going. I will be gald when the autopy results are released and someone is held accountable.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 7th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

Ladies, which blog are we using tonight? This one or the one with Jermaine's video clip? 4 minutes to showtime!!! Yeah! 🙂

Linda   August 7th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Jermaine can't wait to open "Neverland" to be a Director !

Mion   August 7th, 2009 9:02 pm ET

I try to talk to Michael too in the morning. Love you Michael.

benz   August 7th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

Jamine, I love Micjeal but, you were my favourite of the five.

kimono   August 7th, 2009 9:06 pm ET

i love the jackson family they are very brave people because i couldnt be seen after my family member died expecially my brother god rest michaels soul i pray for the family everynight.

Georgeann   August 7th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

Thanks Jermaine, for speaking about Michael helps.

Mar V   August 7th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

Could you please ask Jermaine this question for me? I would like to know if the family picked up something in the 911 call. In the 911 call the person said Michael collapsed but all the reports are saying he was giving something to go to sleep. If thats the case then one would assume he'd be laying down and not standing up. My question is has the family questioned this at all? I find it shady.

ROSE   August 7th, 2009 9:09 pm ET


Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

I totally agree Jamey..ANOTHER JACKSON RIDING ON MICHAEL'S COATTAOLS..Michael HATED " NEVERLAND" after the false accusations..But buring him there would be another MONEY GRAB FOR THE JACKSONS...Hey JERMAINE..How many children do you have? And they live where MICHAEL is PAYING the bills..Yeah Ok..And Who MAINLY provides for you?? Yep Just as I figured your Late Brother..MICHAEL was so kind..And so many People took advantage of HIM..especially his SIBLINGS and FATHER..

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

AS SOON AS MEDIA STOPS COVERING MICHAEL, A JACKSON FAMILY EMERGES TO OPEN PANDORA'S BOX! Let me finish the show, is Jermaine going to promote an upcoming Jackson 4 show? Why don't they take a APPROPRIATE TIME to mourn & let the fans mourn without media coverage??????

Still, my prayers are with Jackson family, especially the children (minus Joe)

cathy in chicago   August 7th, 2009 9:11 pm ET


How do you keep your children grounded growing up with such celebrity and super star status.

cathy in chicago

Classy4kids   August 7th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

I cannot believe the ignorance of some in this country. Jamine is already in money and has been Micheal's spokes person before Micheal's demise. He loves and misses is baby brother.
Some of u should know somethings before you jump in for a comment. Not everything is about money.

Helen Sanders   August 7th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

I pray that Michael soul will rest and his spirit will continue in our lives.

Benz   August 7th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Larry please ask Jamine how Catherine is doing.

Mickey   August 7th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Dr. Klein looks like a mad scientist and he looks crazy. It would definitely damage them if he is allowed to be anywhere around them.

Anne, Ma   August 7th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

So sorry about your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I hope you keep your brother's legacy alive and that you be the best uncle and a great father figure to his beloved children.
I love you all.

Jack   August 7th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

Larry, Why do you allow more publicity to this guy who admits that he slept with other peoples children and paid off some to shut up about it. Please Larry, enough of this pervert.

Jan   August 7th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Jermaine loses all credibility when he says Michael is the biological father of his children. The two oldest are completely and obviously white.

Lorraine Romero age 55   August 7th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

I do agree with SMOKEY ROBINSON. There is so much pain still continuing with the death of MICHAEL JACKSON, due to so much media. I want MICHAEL to rest in PEACE and in my heart his songs will live forever.
You are not Alone!! I am here with YOU>>>>

Alexis   August 7th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

HIT THE ROAD JACK! And don't u come back no more!!!

If you dont want to hear about it...then switch the channel and in the process of doing the only thing you probably know how to do...please look up the word 'respect' in the dictionary!


Angel   August 7th, 2009 9:21 pm ET

Hey Jermaine, I applaud you for your intentions...keep the faith the world is at your side. Don't be afraid...spreed this love... May MJ rest in peace..

Betty   August 7th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

I think the two kids look like Dr. Klein, just my opinion.

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

On Debbie's involvement "it's perfect". COme on if it was the perfect thing for the children, MIchael could have provided that perfection while he was alive! Children will be confused as hell. On Neverland, Jermaine couldn't be more wrong, even on Joe . As much as I don't like her, only Latoya seem to have the balls to speak out. Listen to "Michael JAckson phone conversation" on youtube to hear how MIChael IN DETAIL talks about Joseph and how he feels about him. WHOLE FAMILY IS IN DELISION!

I wish they could just STOP appearing on media, promoting some crap, then ASK THE MEDIA TO STOP MICHAEL COVERAGE! You can't pick and choose, either decline interviews or don't ask media to stop coverage!!!!! I'm done watching this crap! TAKE TIME TO MOURN & LET US MOURN! IT'S NOT JUST JACKSON FAMILY, FANS ARE BROKEN TOO, AND THIS CONSTANT COVERAGE ISN'T HELPING!

Q for Jermine/ Micheal's charity.   August 7th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

How is Jamine going to keep Micheal's legacy going for his fans?

Is there going to be a foundation that will continue to support his charity.

Janice W.   August 7th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Jermaine is just as kind hearted as his brother. I miss Michael so much. Will there ever be a tribute concert?

Lorraine Romero age 55   August 7th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

I wanted to say I agree with SMOKEY ROBINSON. Due to so much media on MICHAELS death it is so hard for us to get over it.
I know it is for me.
God BLess you MICHAEL and your songs will always be in my heart.
This song has been on my lips since the day he passed.

God Bless you all

Nashwa-Canada   August 7th, 2009 9:25 pm ET


Could you please ask Jermaine if he would consider creating a TV channel just for Michael's legacy that would only play his songs and raise awareness about healing the world (i.e. Heal The World Legacy in loving memory of Michael)?

Thank you.

luann   August 7th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

I do not believe michael could have passed the 4 hour physcial exam if he had a drug problem.....please comment jermaine.

Patricia Robinson   August 7th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

I miss Michael sooooooooooo much, I hope that someone is held liable, doctors are suppose to save you from yourself. He is definitely gone too soon!!!!! We needed his music and love, so sadden he is gone!!!!!!!

Cheryleo   August 7th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Enough with the Jacksons already. Night after night after night....

Nancy   August 7th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Please, bury Michael and be done with it...He's gone,stop trying to make money off him.You Jackson's should be ashamed....He died because he was addicted to drugs.If, you were so concerned about his death....why weren't you MORE CONCERNED when he was alive...SHAME ON YOU MONEY GRUB'IN JACKSONS

Lisa   August 7th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Jermaine Jackson has such a soft voice and warm smil. He appeared to genuinely try to set the record straight about the media rumors concerning the children, his mother, Janet, and how he's dealing with Michael Jackson's death. I miss Michael with all of my heart. He is a talent that hasn't been matched nor duplicated, a humanitarian who loved and helped people worldwide, and an example of a father who loved and cared for his children very, very much. All of which we need more of esp. in this country.

carol kesling   August 7th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

good evening jermaine, love you and your family... still miss michael alottttttt !!!!!!!!!!! thank you for saying debbie should be able to see the kids, all kids at one time or another want to know BOTH THEIR PARENTS..keep on keeping on , please let us know where michael will be laid to rest so some day we can visit and say "hi"...god bless m.j. and you &your family... thanks for SHARING HIM WITH US !!!!!!!!!!

Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I totally agree Jamey..ANOTHER JACKSON RIDING ON MICHAEL’S COATTAILS..Michael HATED ” NEVERLAND” after the false accusations..Buring him there would be another MONEY GRAB FOR THE JACKSONS…Hey JERMAINE..How many children do you have? And they live where MICHAEL is PAYING the bills..Yeah Ok..And Who MAINLY provides for you?? Yep Just as I figured your Late Brother..MICHAEL was so kind..And so many People took advantage of HIM..especially his SIBLINGS and FATHER..

Betty   August 7th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

I think the song the two kids sang about you are my daddy instead of your are my sun shine shows there is something wrong with this family

Janice W.   August 7th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Where dos Jermaine and the family find their strength? I still cry for the loss of Michael. I feel like I lost someone special in my own life.

Gudrun   August 7th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Jermaine, please sing that song you sang again at Michael Jackson's funeral. You have a lovely voice.

Tina   August 7th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

You claim one of your objectives is keeping Michael's legacy alive. Which legacy are you referring to...MJ's talent or your condemning book called Legacy: Surviving the Best and the Worst that you are now trying to distance yourself from that trashes Michael? Tell the truth Jermaine, you resented Michael and are now trying to portray yourself as a loving and protective brother only to capitalize off of Michael's death. Shame on you!

Joanne Nichols   August 7th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Dear Jermaine,I want to apologize for you and your families loss.If anything killed your brother, it was the ignorant people of the world.Iam constantly defending him and I will continue to defend him.He had a gigantic heart. I lost my 28 year old daughter three years ago. She always wanted to meet him.I know ther dancing and singing together!!!

Lisa   August 7th, 2009 9:32 pm ET


Alexis   August 7th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I'm disrespect or anything... but is Jermaine completely lost or what???

SHARI   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET


Angela (Kingston, ON Canada)   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Jermaine is the perfect spokesperson for Michael and the family. His soft-spoken, sincere answers ring true. Even the questions that he doesn't want to answer or have the answer to are passed over with eloquence. We, the fans are not entitled to most of the answers we are getting, but how lucky we are that Jermaine is willing to allow the fans to still be involved with Michael by doing these shows.

Ruth   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Jermaine, sorry you could not experience the love showed for Michael and the Jackson 5 at our Reggae Sumfest.

Debi   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET


My heart and prayers go out to your family. I want to thank you and your brothers for the wonderful music that was a big part of my childhood. I pray Michael will get the peace he deserves. Again thank all of you.

ROSE LUCAS   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET


Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:33 pm ET


STOP riding on Michael's back, IT'S DISGUSTING!

Instead of seeking interviews, you should join heads and bury MIchael, HE HAS BEEN LAYING ON ICE OVER A MONTH AND ONE AFTER ANOTHER, YOU ALL ARE SEEKING INTERVIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ENOUGH!!!!!!!!! FANS ARE HURTING TOO!!!!!!!!! STOP SHOWING FACES! IT DOESN'T HELP! Media kind of ceased coverage and BOOM THERE'S JERMAINE!

Arrange a burial plan for the poor man & STOP doing interviews, THEN asking media coverage to sop, YOU'RE ASKING FOR IT!

Cassandra   August 7th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Hi Jermaine......I've loved Michael every since I was a little girl....but I thought I would married Jackie.....LOL.....Love Ya Michael

Mara   August 7th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Great interview Jermaine..thank you Larry and CNN..

Jacqui   August 7th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Amazing to see how composed Jermaine is tonight Larry knowing how painful it can be to talk about his brother....Jermaine my condolences to you & family & up to now I still cry for your brother Michael..Blessings to you & yours

Kathleen Schmidt   August 7th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I am sure the angels rejoiced as Michael walked through those pearly gates. He was a great man and a great entertainer. The world is truely in morning, it is such a great loss. More people should have thought about what they were doing and saying before he died. Sadly Michael may have not known how much he was loved.... RIP I love you.

Anne, Ma   August 7th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

I believe that Michael did not want to go back to Neverland because of what the police did to it. But it would be an act of redemption to prepare the place to receive Michael in a glorious return as his fans will visit the place in the spirit of love and respect for Michael. Neverland could go back to being a place of peace, love and recaptured youth. The soul of Michael will be happy with such arrangements.

He never sold Neverland, therefore, he never stopped loving the essence of the place. MJ burried at Neverland will definitely motivate my visit to California, Santa Barbara for the first time, just to see the final resting place of the King of Pop and experience Neverland

Jan   August 7th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Oh pleasssseeee, Jermaine! Anyone with half a brain could tell that Michael was on drugs. Just as Elvis was responsible for his own death, Michael is responsible for Michael's death.

Vivian   August 7th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

The Jacksons are a strong Family May God Bless

Mike Grommersch   August 7th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Jermaine did a great job singing Smile at the funeral. What was Michael's connection to that song?

Kim   August 7th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

What about the hard drives that latoya took, does Jermaine know if she'll return them?

Joanne Nichols   August 7th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Jermaine,The ignorant people of the world broke your brothers heart and soul!

Audrey   August 7th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

How come there isn't any charges yet?

Alexis   August 7th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I'm sorry, Larry, but Jermaine appearing and re-appearing again and still never having any answers to the very important questions you ask, if kind of meaningless.

What's the point?

Makes me wonder why Jermaine IS indeed so readily available to do these interviews when there are 4 other brothers and 3 sisters that could comment as well.

SHARI   August 7th, 2009 9:38 pm ET


Jani Young   August 7th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

Jermaine, I loved your performance of "SMILE" during the memorial...I love your sweet voice, will or are you planning on doing a CD of old songs or songs you and your brothers liked and sang when you were young?

Again, you are such a sweet brother, I would adopt you into my family...truly loved your singing performance.

Those children are so very, very precious, I am so happy that your family is close and are taking such wonderful care of them.

Jani Young

Kim   August 7th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Latoya Jackson took the hardrives from the house, does JErmaine know if she'll give them back?

Tawnya Seacott   August 7th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

does jermain think that fans would like to mourn at a gravesite hearing that he would be in unmarked grave ?

Margaret Kivumbi   August 7th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

So sad that we never had a chance to see the other side of my MJ until his death. Watching the video of MJ and his kids 7 years ago deeply touched my heart. Thank you Larry for these interviews! Looking forward to hear MJ's mom on your show!

Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

Jermaine must have been OBLIVIOUS..He never knew about Michael taking drugs..They family obvious does not communicate..Were there not a couple of Michael's siblings trying to intervene earlier this year because of the Michael's drug use??

V. Brame   August 7th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I just want Jermaine to know that Michael’s fans are extremely aware of his little brother’s love for humanity and his efforts to save our planet and heal the world. MJ was extraordinary. He was beautiful and the world without him is like witnessing all the lights in Time Square or Paris being suddenly turned off. He will forever be in my broken heart and I want Jermaine and the Jackson family to be comforted in the fact that millions of others feel the same way that I do. We love Michael Jackson.

Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Mr Williamson, Christopher   August 7th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Dear Mr. King
I appreciate all the interviews you have and hopefully will continue to do on my favorite artist Mr. Micheal King Of Pop Jackson. If you have the compassion in which I believe you have. Since Mr. Jackson's untimely exit from due our heavenly father's calling home. please be a voice of the people via the ones who love and endue this man peace and try your best to convince those in the media to stop referring to him as "wacko jacko", it is demeaning & demoralizing to this man when he was alive, but know that this man is with God the father of of all humanity (in my personal opinion) this must STOP. Nearly all the world respected this generous man and Please I beg those in media to refer Mr. Jackson as a man not as anything else PERIOD.
Mr. Christopher Williamson
although yourself i have never heard you state any derogatory statements of this man i hope and pray you will honor him as well ask your assciates in the media to do as you do and respect Mr. Jackson in death as you once did earlier in his life.
Again Thank You
Mr. Williamson

JJ   August 7th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Jermaine should live his life. And stop living M.J life. The greatest gift he could give is writing his own story. Spreading hope to others. Michael has fullfilled his mission on earth. So what will Jermaine's story say.....

Cassandra   August 7th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

@Alexis......Tito performed in Montego Bay Jamaica at the Reggae Sumfest at the request of the Directors. He gave an interview and commented and performed. So more of the Jackson's are commented and fans like me are enjoying every minute of it.

Tawnya   August 7th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Do you believe your father actually is hurt about Micheal's passing or do you believe he is more excited about the money?

Betty   August 7th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Larry , ask him if he knew Michael was on drugs

Shea   August 7th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Thank you Jermaine for your love and dedication to your brother. Also, thanks for telling us that you feel Michael's presence. That is important to those of us who loved him as more than an icon but as a special "family" member to us...

April   August 7th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Micheal was a very gentle, caring and giving human being. I wish the media and public would stop their negativity. I'm sick and tired of the name calling. If the media and public wants to call Michael names now why don't they consider something like, Mr. Entertainment, Michael Dancer, or Mr. Humanitarin. Hey media people and non Michael Jackson believers, Michael was a Father, Son and Brother to the Jackson family. Do you think they like hearing you call him Wacko-Jacko, weirdo, and all the other names? We should embrace the Jackson family and console them in their time of grieving.

Charlene   August 7th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Thank You Jackson Family for sharing Michael with the world! I will never forget how PROUND he and the Jackson Five made me growing up seeing them on TV shows and watching the cartoon show. My life has been forever enriched from the GOD given talents that he blessed Michael and all of you with. I will Love you Forever Michael.

Betty   August 7th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Larry , you ask easy questions and he can't even answer the easy ones.

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

WAIT, Jermaine is going to PROMOTE something, I just don't know what yet

JEAN   August 7th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Larry   August 7th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

when was the last time jermaine talked to or been around his brother

Susan   August 7th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

he was an icon of our times. I will miss him very much. He was a great person. My thoughts and prayers be with the Michaels children and the rest of the Jacksons.

Jennifer Phillips   August 7th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

I lost my brother and I know how heartbreaking and painful that can be. I was wondering what Jermaine's favorite memory of Michael is?

Tawnya   August 7th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Jermaine do you know any thing about Micheal's Kabala bracelet's her wore the past years?

Parween   August 7th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I hope all goes well for the Jackson family. It is a great loss, but something we have to deal with. Michael was the greatest of all. R.I.P Michael Jackson

Janice W.   August 7th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Jermaine is right. Michael is an incredible man. He would never hurt a child ever, Whoever is still making accusations about Michael is not listening carefully to Michaels music, his words in his interviews or even watching the images in his videos. You can feel his soul in everything he's ever done.

laurie Williams   August 7th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

I've wachted you larry king, I loved micheal I'n poor and would love to have something from him. And I have a handicaped son of 17 and loved free willy

Larry   August 7th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

jermaine knew his brother was addict why cant anyone who knew him admit it they are all in denial

Anne, Ma   August 7th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Jermaine, I support MJ being burried at Neverland and I hope you mother can come to realize that Neverland is the best place for MJ to return to. I believe that Michael did not want to go back to Neverland because of what the police did to it. But it would be an act of redemption to prepare the place to receive Michael in a glorious return there as his fans will visit the place in the spirit of love and respect for Michael. Neverland could go back to being a place of peace, love and recaptured youth, the way that MJ wanted it to be. The soul of Michael will be happy with such arrangements. He will smile in contentment.

MJ never sold Neverland, therefore, he never stopped loving the essence of the place. MJ burried at Neverland will definitely motivate my visit to California, Santa Barbara for the first time, just to see the final resting place of the King of Pop and experience Neverland

Kelly   August 7th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Many blessings to you and your family Jermaine. Try hard to tune out the negative, critical, skeptical, sarcastic, rude, mean spirited people. All of that junk makes people old and ugly and "what goes around comes around". If everyone had the same kind and gentle spirit that Michael had, this world would be a much lovelier place. I miss Michael, love him dearly and will defend him to the end!
Thank you for clearing up some of the stupid rumors and gossip!
Peace be with you!

Ms   August 7th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Great reminder that in all this God has his timing and it's not for us to determine whether that timing is wrong.

Rick   August 7th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Has there been any thought of taking Michaels' body on tour? It seems if you are not going to bury him anytime soon; he could still make the tour without canceling all the dates, thus keeping revenue.

Laura Gray   August 7th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Thank you and all of your family for sharing your wonderful brother with the world. All of you are still in our prayers and Michael will never be forgotten. He made a wonderful impact on so many lives.....

CONNIE   August 7th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Will anyone from the Jackson family continue Michael's philanthropic legacy..

Ava   August 7th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Please tell Jermaine that we all love him and the Jacksons family. God bless you all and God bless Michael's soul. Our prayers are with you all.

Joanne Nichols   August 7th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

What is going on with all these cold comments! I hope to God ,that you never lose a child. There is Nothing that compares.Please learn some respect! I know Michael had a bigger heart than those of you with ignorance!

Rick   August 7th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Hey Larr, Don't ya think enough already with this same crap night after night??

Barbara   August 7th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

please ask Jermaine – How tall was Michael

jojo   August 7th, 2009 9:49 pm ET


This morning, I shed a few more tears for your brother when his song "little suzie" came on my Ipod. It gave the song a deeper meaning and made me remember again how much I miss your brother.

I first saw Michael and you in your Victory concert in Kansas City on July 6, 1984. I was a fan from that day forward.

My heart goes out to you and your family, but please know some fans DID know who Michael really was.

God Bless

Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Ken   August 7th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Larry and Jermaine seem to have a good relationship, but I wish that they can just do a show on the music, the creative process, and working with his brothers all those years.

What about Jermaine's own career, which was successful for a brief time in the early 80's? The family seems so secretive, but it would be interesting to know about some of the behind-the-scenes things unknown to people.

V. Brame   August 7th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

It’s really incredible to me how people can criticize Jermaine and the Jackson family for not knowing MJ was on drugs when NONE of us have an official toxicology report yet but only a lot of media speculation and gossip. Even when the report is made public how can any of, us judge what the family was aware of?

Mark calvin   August 7th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

GOD gave us Michael Jackson for 50 Years with most of his Years using Music for us to see and to understand what we are doing to the world...Most choosed to ignore it..His Training was done and was called by GOD so he and Jesus can return again along with 143,999 with Jesus Christ

Mara   August 7th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

You're so right Jermaine, Michael did so much good in this world more than any other and so he has nothing to worry about he will be blessed in heaven none of these evil people on earth will ever be able to bring pain or hurt to him again!

Larry   August 7th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Im watching this show Larry King ask the silliest questions

Cindy CANADA   August 7th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

Yazmeen..I agree with everything you have said..

Edna   August 7th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

It is sad to know that Jermaine does not know the truth that our "good works" will not take us to heaven. If this were the case, Jesus would have died to take our punishment in vain, which would mean that the Bible and Jesus is not true. Jesus cannot be a good man and also be a liar – He said "I am the way, the truth the the life, no man comes to the Father BUT by Me". I pray that Michael had a sincere desire to find the truth and the LORD revealed Himself to him before the died.

Heidi   August 7th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

One wish!

That the media would leave the accusation about MJ alone, he did NOTHING wrong!
He did more for children in his short life and care and felt there pain.
Michael is in heaven singing with Elvis, Sinatra, Jackson Brown etc What a choir!

Brandon M   August 7th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Does Jermaine regret not talking to Michael for a long period of time?

Chris   August 7th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Hi Jermaine:

Please accept my family and I's sympathy obout Michael's passing. He was a pure gift that the world did not recognize. Please publicize the book that Michael wrote "Dancing the Dream, Poems and Reflections" It says all about Michael and how insightful he was about the true meaning of life, the universe and God. Also, say a special hello to your mother, as an African, she a is a true anchor, and a mother figure to all. God bless.

Larry   August 7th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Now larry kings wife is coming on what the heck is this nonsense

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Michael was the ONLY DIAMOND in Jackson family

Those who thinks Joe made Michael should listen to "Michael Jackson secret phone conversations" on youtube, Michael answers that, JOE DIDN'T MAKE MICHAEL!

I really PRAY Jermaine isn't there to promote something, that would be DISGUSTING!

Elizabeth in NJ   August 7th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Watching your show Larry, Half way through and what a candid friendly touching interview it was. Being 51 followed MJ all through my life admired him dearly and am very saddend at his demise. Jermaine speaking tonight showed us yet another side of the Jackson Family. Its sad that there are not more people like myself interested in the good who cares about the gossip. People need to stop thriving on the gossip and inuendo's as every star has and remember how he changed our world musically and through his popularity was able to also help many many foundations etc. Lets remember he was a music icon, father, son and brother. Every life has value and Jemaine helped me tonight to see just another side of him.
thank you Larry King and Thank you Jermaine Jackson

Amie Miller   August 7th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

First of all – my deepest condolences to all the Jackson family.
I am curious to know when the last time Michael visited his estate at Neverland and did he ever have plans to return there to reside with his family? I think this is a key question when deciding whether or not to bury him there?

Linda Larson   August 7th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Does Germaine feel that Michael had no responsibility in his own death?

Sandra Robertson, GA   August 7th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Great show Larry. I love to hear Jermaine Jackson speak with such love and fond memories of his brother, Michael.

Joanne Nichols   August 7th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

addicts are people with a disease! Its not something thats easy to admit! Put the shoe on the other foot!

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 9:57 pm ET


Kim   August 7th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Once again Jermaine wants TV time. Sorry Jermaine your not MJ. Go shine your starched perm hair

sheryl sopko   August 7th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

i would like to see jermaine sing and perform . he revealed his beautiful talent when he sang "smile" he has such a beautiful voice the talent runs through the family not just in wonderful michale. my question is why does'nt jermaine perform anymore with all his talent?i would buy his music alot and love it !

Alexis   August 7th, 2009 9:58 pm ET


Jo   August 7th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Now, I get it , why Larry is doing so many shows with Jermain, his young young wife is involved, she is always trying to get into show business and he is trying to promote her...

Shan, Campbell River, B.C.   August 7th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

This is a real tragedy. I never believed that Michael was guilty of any criminal offense, and as a former police officer who has seen it all, I am not naive about these things. I feel very sorry for the family and his children, and for Debbie Roe who I believe had a very close soul mate relationship with Michael which is why she did what she did for him, and why she stepped back to let him be the father he longed to be. I think Jermaine is a very gentle dignified man and I have enjoyed seeing him again since my mad crush on him in the 70's! I love that they all respect and honor their mother so much. I think the children are in good hands.

Cassandra   August 7th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Larry has a beautiful and talented wife

suzanne   August 7th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

It's lovely to hear Jermaine talk about all the wonderful, kind and generous stories and thoughts about his brother Michael. Michael, his children and family deserve this. I'm sure the loss is extremely difficult.

What I don't understand is why Jermaine is not being genuine about Michael's drug use and drug addiction. If he was so close with him as he said he was and some of his family members discussed full disclosure about trying to conduct an intervention with Michael, why is he not telling the truth? Michael had a former prescription drug problem years ago and it's happened again, how could he not know? Why is he pretending to not know what he knows? This is disappointing that he's not being clean about the facts of Michael's problem. He may not know what actually killed his brother, but he well knows that his brother had adrug addiction problems. How could all of his friends know, his father knew, his sisters and other brothers knew, but Jermaine who was soooooo close with him knew NOTHING? Come on Jermaine...

And, about the supposedly "love child" of Michael's, he doesn't know those facts either. Come on, he's either a child of MIchael's or he's not and Jermaine, you know. He's supposedly staying at your mother's home and you don't know who his father or mother is? If you wish to keep it private, then fine, but saying you don't know if he is or isn't, is simply ridiculous.


Alexis   August 7th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Why does it have to be JERMAINE's foundation? If you want to continue MICHAEL'S Legacy, then you would use MICHAEL's HEAL THE WORLD FOUNDATION!!!

I'm outraged now!

Just another way to get money.. In life, Michael suffered because of money and now in death, the same, if not worse!


Janice W.   August 7th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Will there be any tribute concerts in the US?

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 10:00 pm ET


PLease please you, Latoya & Joe, STOP with the interviews and make burial plans, we want MIchael to rest in peace, NOT ON ICE!!!!!!

How can you arrange tribute show and YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BURIED THE GUY?

My love & respect to MIchael, his children & Mrs Katherine

Mara   August 7th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Wish they would have a tribute concert here in America. =(

Betty   August 7th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Larry's wife looks young enough to be his grand daughter

Adell   August 7th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Larry, I used to watch your show religiously, but ever since you've been beating this Michael Jackson horse to death I've been watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. So I turn over during a commercial and who do I see Jermaine Jackson. OMG! Now I loved MJ as much as the next person, heck "ABC" was the first record I ever purchased. But give it a rest, please put on some relevant subject matter again! I'm turning back now.

Shan, Campbell River, B.C.   August 7th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

I hear Larry is very good at pleasing women!

Yazmeen   August 7th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Proceeds go to everywhere BUT MICHAEL'S CHARITY!!!!!!
How appropriate!!!!



CONNIE SENK   August 7th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

My heart goes out to the Jackson family. It's great too see Micheal Jackson still sharing his heart with all of the people in this world. Thank you !!!!!!!!

Elizabeth in NJ   August 7th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Oh and there is no reason that a member of the family should not step up and continue a legacy in the main persons absence. Don't knock him for that, the family members have every right to continue whatever they feel necessary for his memory. We may not be famous but we all (at least I do) do that in our lives to help remember and feel good after tragedies. This is a free world and we can all express ourselves how we see fit.. Dont punish a mans memories just because his brother was world famous. Right on Jermaine, we could only hope and pray for you that a wonderful legacy continues for The angel in your family as well as his children. Wishing you the best. A great fan of music and MJ

Gloria   August 7th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Jermaine I have been a Jackson Family fan since the begining. My heart is broken by Michael's death. It is so hard to believe that he is gone. I pray for your family and his kids. Take care of each other. I love you all.

Heidi   August 7th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

What about Michael's Heal the World!!!
This is not about Jermaine it's about Michael – dosen't he have a job or is this on Michael's coat tails.
Thank god for Janet she wants nothing to do with this.

Mark   August 7th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

God Bless Michael. I don't know what to say other than that he gave us so much, and that just like John Lennon I am so sad that we are deprived of what may have come.

Alexis   August 7th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

MIchael made those people executors of his estate for THIS very reason.. The jacksons have never had Michael's best interest in mind. Michael was a money machine to them too...

And now, Jermaine teams up with LARRY KING of all people on this earth??? Are you kidding me?????

This is utterly ridiculous!! And EVEN More so outrageous because not one of those charities is Michael's!!!!

Disgusting and Shame on yoU!

Tina   August 7th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

How much of the donations go to Earth Cares vs. how much goes in Jermaine Jackson's pocket? Jermaine, stop thinking of ways to make money off of Michael. He let you and your family live rent free (of which you had children with your brother Randy's ex).

Remember, Word to the Bad? It's the song you wrote and sang bashing Michael. With family like you, Michael didn't need enemies.

And now you've conned Larry and Shawn into promoting you by using this soft little voice. You will be found out for the low-down leech that you are.

May you RIP Michael. We truly love you!

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 7th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

Without going into other aspects of the program, I can say for sure, we are not allowed to know whether Michael converted to islam. It apparently is still a taboo. Jermain said “I converted to islam and I brought him many books because he read everything” and then suddenly the answer was cut short and we suddenly were switched to some sort of Austrian award show. Since the program was recorded, I assume Jermaine’s complete answer to the question if Michael became a muslim, was cut out.

Cathy   August 7th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

How about a memorial in the USA ???

DDiane   August 7th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Larry, great show and thanks for having Jermaine on again.
The fans can't get enough.

Betty   August 7th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

a really bad show, Larry you did to retire

Margaret Kivumbi   August 7th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

That is awesome!! I can't wait to listen to that CD.

I have a question to Larry and Jermaine? When I see the Jackson 5 pictures I cannot figure out who is Titto, Jermaine etc... Larry, do you mind to name the Jacksons (young) Jacksons, next time when Jermaine is on the air? I enjoyed the show as usual. My prayers to the children and the entire Jackson family.


Elizabeth in NJ   August 7th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

If Larry King wants to promote his wife then God Bless him why not? Don't belittle the man for doing an interview without pushing and tastefully discussing the questions being put out there by the public. What a beauty his wife is she looks like she belongs in the limelight but hey we all know she doesnt have to but is just as entitled as anyone on the planet to reach for her dream. Once again way to go very happy i watched your show tonight as I am with every show i watch of yours.

Brenda   August 7th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

I grew up with Michael and his music. I miss him so much, I cry every time I see him on the tv or hear about him. I feel so sad for his children and his family. I just wish all the bad things people say about him will stop! He was and always will be the greatest entertainer ever!!!!
Whoever did this too him should pay!! They took the life of a very special person! One who will never be replaced!
RIP Michael. I Love You and Miss you!
God Bless Michael's children and the Jackson family.

Cheryle   August 7th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

I can not believe the insensitivity of some people. No matter how you look at it Michael was a gift from God and a musical Icon. Let's give him his props. Jermaine I am praying for you and the Jackson family that the Lord will be with you in this time of sorrow. As a individual that has lost a love one it will never get any eaiser but you learn to appreciate the memories.

Gloria   August 7th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Jermaine, my heart is broken by Michael's death. May God bless and heal your family. Thank God for the time he gave us Michael.

Janice W.   August 7th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

Please try to have a tribute concert in the US as well. I have never had the opportunity to see Michael live so it would great to celebrate his memory with other people who love and appreciate him.

Debbie Florida   August 7th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Larry, I just had to tell you, WOW, what a beautiful wife you have. I think your a lucky and fortunate man to have a women like that. Looking forward to her musical duo with Jermaine.. For charity, how wonderful. Watch your show on a regular basis.

Lucero Castañeda   August 7th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Mexico ama a Michael Jackson. Oramos por su eterno descanso. Sabemos que Michael esta con Dios. Esperamos que la Prensa, deje en paz a sus tres pequeños hijos y no sufran lo que sufrio Michael.

Please, leave them alone. (Michael's kids) We love them..!
God bless you..

If you heard Jermaine say it was his foundation not Michael's

Tawnya   August 7th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

i hope the concert can be a success but I cant help but think this is exploitation of m.j. just another time as a fan and I like jermaine but he needs his own life not his brothers

Michael Jackson walked in the light and we followed in the reflection of this light from this man.... his music, his various talents, his humanity,his generosity and his genius.

Michelle--California   August 7th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I hope Michael's children are able to keep their daddy's memories close to their hearts and I hope they have cherish the memories their daddy has given them. They are such well adjusted children and I hope Blanket is not too young to remember his daddy....
Blessing to all of you and God protect the children!!!!!

Michael RIP!.Aloha and God bless your family

vallary   August 7th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

That is the thing now. You don't hear what someone does that is good and helps other people. You are hear the trash. That is what sales is the trash. Micheal Jackson had his problems he did and the life style he had but, he did a lot for music and people. can we focus on that . I don't know what Debbie Rowe done with the 8 million he gave her but, she needs a make over. Could she look any more meaner or throw away. Please lady. I wish the best of luck to the kids and to Katherine.... The world should just step back.

maxine   August 7th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

My heart goes out to you and your family's loss. Michael was a great humanitarian. Let's not forget Ryan White and your brother's fight against AIDS and discrimination way back when.

It was even said on LKL that he wanted to negotiate for the release on Euna Lee and Laura Ling.

He must have loved you all very much as evidenced by his generosity of leaving 40% of his estate to your mother so she could share that with all of the Jacksons.

I was so thrilled to hear he left 20% of his estate to charity. You are carrying on his wondeful legacy. God bless you Jermain and all of the Jacksons.

Canadian   August 7th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

Awaiting comments from Toni/Lori/Linda................The " special announcement " was really uncomfortable...............

JENEBA   August 7th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

i dnt care wat people are saying about Jermaine whether michael is payin his bill or not that his brother, michael has more than all of them even janet so shut up.. heal the world foundation is takin care of michael has a lot of charity which 20% of his wealth is going to. let all wait till the result came out i think there is foul play myself coz u never give cpr in bed i dnt care how small the person is** my prayer goes out to the jackson family i hope the true came out

Umuhire   August 7th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Larry, here I am again, to thank you for helping us MJ"s fans, to greif for him. I loved to hear from Jermain, probably because I know how much him and Michael were close, so when I see and hear his voice, it is like I see and hear Michael.
I was moved to tears to hear that he is continuing his brother's mission, which to me and my family who loved him dearly, was to give a voice to those who could not be heard in the world, to reduce poverty and suffering and to make every human being understand that we have a responsibility to those less fortunate, especially the children. Throuh his songs and actions, that all we remember from Jackson, he cared for those who were lost and my 9 years old son said to me the other day: Mom, Michael was in debt because he gave so much of his money away.
And you know what Larry, I know that it is a strong statement to make, but sometime the purest truth comes to us when an innocent, uncorrupted angel just says it. I was so pleased to see your wife, you are a wonderfull team and we will look forward to that concert in Vienna. We are not going to be able to attend, that I know for a fact, just because of the same reasons we never attended any of MJ's live concerts,(financial limitations), but my husband who happens to be a singer in his free time (we hold on to our african, Rwandan heritage, by singing and dancing) and our children are going to be doing similar work in the years to come, following in Michaels footstep and contributing to charities, as much as we will be able to.
Especially our children are so motivated, to be involved in any effort that will provide them with the opportuniy to help other less fortunate children in the world. And again all this is coming from Michaels Jackson legacy.
I wrote for the first time on any blogg to you Larry, just because between my work and studies, I do not even have the time to catch a moment of your show, but I had to thank you for leading the US media in repairing the damage they have done to MJ's image over the last decade, and again around the world, we still loved him and never gave up on him.
And to be honnest Larry,when we first heard that he had died, we did not even know that he was back in the States, up until that very moment the news of his death came our,and the first emotion was almost anger, because we said to ourselves: Oh, My God, they killed him. Every thing they did to him, he managed to recover from it, and now they just got rid of him once and for all!!"
And I do agree with Jermaine, we are going to wait for the autopsy results, the facts, and then we will know who to blame, if as Jermaine put it very well, there is in fact anyone to blame. If not, let me tell you it will be releif, because we will be able just to miss him, without being angry at anyone who could have contributed to his death. Jermaine, you were right, it will be hard for that person to walk on the face of this earth.
We love you Larry
Umuhire and family

Em   August 7th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

How can you be "so close" to a brother and know nothing about them at all? Enabler is all I can think of the whole family. Jermaine does not seem sincere to me, but very opprotunisitic. Where were all these family and friends while he was alive instead of after the fact???

Hopskotch   August 7th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

While the burial location (Neverland or not) is up to the family to decide, I learned something interesting recently about how these things sometimes work in terms of bureaucracy. Richard and Pat Nixon are buried on the grounds of the Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda. According to California law, a person can be buried at either a cemetery or a church. So the Nixon Library donated a small piece of land on their grounds to a local church. The church in turn gave permission for the Nixons to be buried on that piece of land. Voila.

Latoyra   August 7th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

Larry the show was okay wasn't really getting out the answers on what i want to know cause jermaine either didn't want to say much or didn't know too much of what's going on with micheal estate and AEG i don't agree the will was right and Katherine obviously don't either even though she got the kids i mean why not she the grandmother but like joe say he fired those executive years ago and it look crazy they coming back in the picture all of a sudden to claim micheal's estate just don't seem right. I really think this report on micheal is very important and shouldn't be taken lightly someone took advantage of this man and possibly murdered him and to some of these reporters they act like it's a circus act or something get the facts the true facts dig deep interview people like dick gregory bring leonard rowe up there and katherine perhaps even joe again cause these people said some real truthful things and they exploiting those who they believe took advantage of micheal financially and other things i would really like to see a show with them up there to show whats was really going on with micheal

Victoria Sutherland   August 7th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

I would like to know why EVERY picture we are shown on the news is ALWAYS the SAME EVER "SMILING" CONRAD MURRY.

He was with Michael the day he died and the night before, Michael died on HIS watch. All indications I have read or seen makes me think Michael Jackson had passed away hours prior to MURRY finding him (NOT BREATHING) GEE!.........Ya think it might have been because he had done this so many times he feel asleep and just didn't care?

Does the media have any other pictures of Murry with any other look on his face........... or only the same smiling (SO CALLED) DOCTOR taken in front of his BIG office?? Money does VOLUMNS and I hate to think Murry will walk away unscathed.
God bless you Michael Jackson.

Anne   August 7th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

The charity should be titled "MIchael Jackson ... " if it is to honor his memory. There are a lot of things Jermaine should know about his brother that he doesn't know. He didn't know the nanny or about Omer and never met Debbie Rowe before. I think MJ kept his life separate from his family. I think they used him.

I am disappointed in the show because I thought Jermaine was going to talk about Michael's philanthropic accomplishments but he only mentioned one – the child with the liver transplant. He had so many chances to say nice things about Michael's sense of humor, imagination and love of fun/magic/laughter. He had a whole hour to say great things about Michael. I want a MJ tribute show.

carol kesling   August 7th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

to barbara, michael was 5ft 10 inches tall....

Julie Young   August 7th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Thank you Larry, and Jermaine for the show tonight. Jermaine thank you for sharing your thoughts on Michael, and for continuing Michaels passion for saving our world and for helping so many people who need help.
I believe after reading some of the comments today that some people really do need help themselve they are just crazy to insult larry, jermaine or larrys wife, how dare they. And I think it is the Jackson families right when or where they bury Michael, and not the public.
Rest in Peace Michael. My love, prayers and support to the Jackson Family,
Julie , Perth, Western Australia

Heba   August 7th, 2009 10:41 pm ET

Great show, Larry!
Jermaine is a breath of fresh air. I love how he wants people to take a closer look at Micheal's love of charity. I just do not understand why some questions are always being ignored such as "Was Micheal a Muslim? Is Omer Micheal's son? Why hasn't Micheal been buried yet?"

Maire718   August 7th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

This is at least the second LKL interview I've seen with Mr Jackson's brother and I am wondering if they were indeed related. He offers no emotional insight and his comment about never asking or suspecting drug addiction really boggles the mind. Is he for real? Also couldn't help but wonder why LK never goes further with the question but know now that it's because his wife has joined in on the bandwagon of exploitation.

Poor Michael, he was a good soul and may find peace at the last.

Mickey   August 7th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Some of the comments in this message thread is probably the reason why the US will never see a Jackson concert. I do not understand the viciousness against the Jacksons. Even Michael chose London to do his concert series.

Micaela   August 7th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

It was moved and comforted to hear Jermaine talk about the REAL Michael Jackson who devoted his life and his riches to making the world a better place. "By their fruits you shall know them..." Michael was a kind and loving soul. I miss him and pray for him every day. Please continue giving us the truth about Michael, not the trash. Thank you, Larry!

cindy   August 7th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

Jermaine is so soft-spoken, very much like Michael. His absence is very much felt, acutely so. We can only imagine what his "new" tour would have brought to the world. I truly hope that his children will be taken care of in the way Michael would want, and that they remember only the goodness of their father, as they get older. Michael was special–I choose to remember him this way. God love all of you and your family.

Kadri   August 7th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

I loved what Jermaine got to say about their family and his brother Michael. Totally agree with him about everything he said. I will always enjoy their songs and remember how good person was Michael in everything he did to make the world to better place. Good show, Larry, I enjoyed it! Kadri

Victoria   August 7th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

One more big question. The Movie made of the Jackson family "The American Dream". Who in the family agreed for this film to be produced and if the accountings in this movie are so wrong about Joseph Jackson beating the boys ISN'T TRUE, then why was someone not sued over it? Why didn't Joe Jackson do something to stop it from airing at the time? Surely he know about it and if it was all a ficticious lie then why was the world made to believe Joe Jackson was an over active child beater in the movie?

Michael commented on his childhood with Joseph and it seemed Michael did not like Joseph, but had to honor him because of his upbringing. It was said by Michael many ,many times his father physically hit him and verbally abused him as well, for many years.

M. Raymond Sheppard   August 7th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

I find Jermaine Jackson to be an honest honorable personon and I have the greatest amount of respect for him. It is obvious that he loved his brother with all his heart. I believe he is on the right path with respect to his Brother and his legacy. May the Power Be With You Brother Jermaine.

Mila   August 7th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

So that's why Larry's been talking about Michael every night ? To pull money from MJ's tribute concert to his own charity organization ?!

Carol   August 7th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

Hi Larry,
Thank you sooo much for having Jermaine on the show...I wish he would have said more things about Michael...but Im sure you'll do your best to get Mrs Katherine Jackson on the show so we can learn more about this wonderful angel. I cant wait for the tribute in September ....I hope CNN streams it live.

Thanks again Larry and I hope you can get Mrs Jackson on the show 🙂

karenannbechtold/*   August 7th, 2009 10:57 pm ET

we would all do well to remember the lessons we learned from our mothers.....if you say something about someone let it be nice....don't put bad thoughts in your brain. that is the place where they manifest......when others talked negative on michael it really portrayed who they were and not michael........

DeeBee   August 7th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

I'm amazed at the negative, disrespectful comments of some of you. At the end of the day we are all speculating. We do not know the facts but only what the media feeds us. Why are you so angry about Michael not being buried? This is the family's business. We have been told that his brain was removed for testing. Do you want him buried without his brain and whatever other body parts were removed? What is wrong with you people? Show some respect please.

Jermaine seems very genuine. Why do you assume that he is riding on the coattails of his brother? Even if they disagreed once does that matter now? Families disagree don't they and some of them heal the rifts. Come on people. Show some love and UNDERSTANDING.

cathy   August 7th, 2009 11:01 pm ET

Jermaine, I just love experiencing you. I think your feelings for your younger brother are real and not an act as some might suggest. I can see that you were very close and had a lot of love for one another. I believe Michael's legacy will live on even after we are all gone. Michael Jackson was a good man and a great humanitarian.

I hope and pray that you will soon be able to get back in the studio and record something magical. I just love your voice and you're an excellent gutarist. I would definitely stand in line all night to get tickets to your concert. Jermaine, I can't understand why you and your wonderful brothers stopped recording and performing. You all are such a talented family , truly gifts from God. I thank God for Joseph Jackson, for without his drive and determination, the world would never have had the Jackson 5, the Jacksons or Janet jackson. I think it would be awesome if you and your entire family woould consider a tour sometime in the near future (after an appropriate grieving time, of course). I think the public is ready. . A concert tour would be an excellent tribute to your late brother.

Jermaine, my prayers and thoughts are with you and the entire Jackson family. I have been in mourning right along with you since June 25, 2009. I truly feel I lost a family member also.

I can't get enough of the Jackson. May God continue to bless each and everyone of you. And your mother is a saint.

Carmen   August 7th, 2009 11:10 pm ET


I think it's commendable your desire to carry on Michael's work, but I think what would make Michael the happiest would be to see you and his other siblings standing next to your mother and sister Rebbie welcoming him back upon his ressurection.

cassandra   August 7th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

“Another day has gone
I’m still all alone
How could this be
You’re not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold….”

My name is Cassandra and I am 15 years old. That verse sums up how I feel right now. I love, not loved, Michael Jackson dearly. He was my idol, my inspiration and my friend. Through his music and actions he has taught me so much. There were times in my life when I didn’t even have the strength to go on but when I listened to MJ’s words I felt like all my troubles were at a pause and he taught me how to love.

Sometimes I find myself just sitting down and asking God why he had to take him away from of all the people that loved him. I may never find the answer to that question but I know God put Michael in this world for a reason. To show people how to love one another, to bless us with his presence and music and to help all the children he has helped. I may not have actually known Michael but I feel as if I have. You might think I’m crazy but I felt as if he was my best friend. When he died I feel as if I lost apart of my soul and I still cry thinking about it.

We are still grieving his death but also celebrating the wonderful life he led. I continue to pray for his family, especially his children, to stay strong through this tough time. And if I could say one last thing to Michael it would be I love you and the times when you felt low and alone, miles away I was here for you and I was always your friend.

So Today I ask everyone:
Put The Past In The Past Where It Belongs. Forgive Past Mistakes, Forget Past Flaws, He Was A Human Just Like Us, Who Deserves To Be Remembered As One. He Was a Great Man, and Strived To Help to Make the World A Better Place. Remember him For That and His Astonishing Music.

Rest in Peace, you deserve it Michael.

b   August 7th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

My prayers goes to Jackson family and Michael's children. I really looked forward for this interview. I love him for sharing with the world what a great, wonderful and generous person Michael was.
Though I feel some of his answers were not genuine. Or maybe he didn't want to answer it. It sounded like they were not a very communicative family at times. Because some of his answers differs from what other family members have said. Like about the drug use, Jermaine isn't aware of it. Other family members have said they tried to have an intervention. And even about the autopsy. Though I still loved how he talked about the REAL Michael Jackson – one of the most GENEROUS and BEAUTIFUL man ever!
Thank you for the interview Larry, I hope you can have Katherine on the show.

Heather   August 7th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

This was a great show. Jermaine was so composed when answering the questions. I could tell there were some things he still wanted to keep within the family and that's understandable. It's good to know that Katherine is doing well since she has taken control. I guess she's the shy, strong type who can get things done when they need to be.

I think a troll is posting here tonight, just changing their name each time they post with the same negative stuff. I think it's probably some teenager who has nothing better to do tonight. Adults are usually much more respectful of grieving families.

chris   August 7th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Betty, in reference to your comment that the song "You are my daddy, my only daddy" is weird, all I can say is get real! I used to sing to my daughter "You are my Talia, my only Talia" to which she would respond by singing "You are my mommy, my only mommy". I'll bet the situation was similar in the case of Michael and his kids.

Junior   August 7th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

Jermaine you being very diplomatic and kind to your enemies. This case is not going to be solved by LAPD because it seems that AEG LIVE already paid them off ( I think it is much more than $90,000 too ). The Private Eyes are the one's who will solve the who, what, where, when and why Michael Jackson was murdered!


MaryLou   August 7th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

Don't build a shrine at Neverland...sell it. Build a museum in Las Vegas where Michael would have had his last concerts. In the museum have a small replica of Neverland. Have his wardrobe,videos,etc. People will come because Las Vegas is easier for everyone to get to. Jermaine you are awesome and quite good looking I might add. Continue to spread all that Michael did for the good of humanity because that was seldom mentioned.

Aurora   August 7th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

I think Jermaine is a wonderful human and brother. He really is in pain for Michael`s death and i believe in his love .

Bella   August 7th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

The show is really disappointing and certainly confusing. Jermaine seemed to be out of touch with MJ, or he's naive?

1. Everyone knows that Michael became reliant on painkillers after that Pepsi Ad, later on he had other pains which made things worst and he really struggled. But Jermaine didn't seem to be aware of that at all, Why? Tito in a previous interview did say the brothers and sisters came to Neverland unexpectedly, trying to help Michael. Was Jermaine not in the group? Or he wasn't even aware of that?

2. Katherine's attorney is fighting with John Branca and McClain and it makes senses because Michael's relationship with these guys turned sour in recent years, so his will in 2002 wasn't updated. Still Jermaine went against that fact and against his mother's wish. What's going on here? A family fight for not only where to bury Michael but his estate as well?

3. We all expect Jermaine to carry on Michael's legacy from what he's written earlier. How come Jermaine start his own charity but NOT follow Michael's HEAL THE WORLD, or any of the major charity organization Michael was active, there are 39 of them?

This is NOT right and fair for Michael at all.

SuzieCanada   August 7th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

He gave so much to this world, sacrificed his childhood, his privacy, his entire life in order to delight us with his out-of-this-world talent. I can't imagine a world without Thriller, the moonwalk, the Smooth Criminal moves, to name just a few .... neither can my son, neither will my son's future children, and their children ... and how did the world repay him for his trouble? By crucifying him. How sad...

Patty Anderson   August 7th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

Hi Fans. I just returned from work. I was not able to watch Jermaine's interview. Could someone please tell me how the interview went. Was jermaine able to answer any of the questions we have all had? Was he able to tell us anything from the family autopsy? Thanks to anyone willing to enlighten me.

Janice   August 7th, 2009 11:37 pm ET

I believe this is the one tribute concert that the estate requested approval for. I doubt they would be doing a concert without it being under the estate because the executors have the right to shut down anything that's bootleg.

Although MJ had many charities, the will gave the executors the right to select the charities. If this becomes an annual event they will probably rotate them. And remember all of the proceeds from Latoya's single goes to an AIDS charity.

inez   August 7th, 2009 11:53 pm ET

I hope Michael J knows how much he was LOVED all over the world..RIP sweet man !!

vanessa   August 7th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

Michael was a loving and kind person who didn't deserve all the negative press he received. The media destroy people with their negative press that is based on their ideas and beliefs not the facts. I hope they don[t forget that they have children and what goes around comes around. Michael promoted love and thats what we all should do so our world can be a better place to live in. What a beautiful soul. I will be so happy when I can stop crying about michaels death. I know he is in a better place .

Tracy Weicker   August 7th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

Awesome interview. I realized how well spoken the Jackson family is. I pray for peace for the family and children. Even if the toxicology reports come back and show it was due to his addiction, they have nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone has a cross to bear and that may have been his. It doesn't change any of the great things he did during his life time. I only wish that I admired him more than for just his music in life as I do in his death. He dealt with so many false allegations and humiliation that would have killed the spirit of the average person-but not him, and that goes to prove he was not average in any sense of the word. His legacy needs to live on as a humanitarian,a daddy, a real person that had a heart of gold. May he rest in the peace that he deserves.

Jame   August 7th, 2009 11:59 pm ET

Patty Anderson it's coming on again in one minute. You can catch the show.

Carrie   August 8th, 2009 12:00 am ET

First of all, I would like to say that I love and admire all of the Jackson family. I know this must be a trying time and I am deeply saddened for your loss. You are all in my prayers...especially his beautiful children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket. Al Sharpton was right when he said that there was "nothing strange about [their] daddy...He was an amazing person and a gift to the world. His light touched many lives. I hope they have a safe and happy childhood. I know that with their grandmother is the best place for them. She will give them the appropriate upbringing Michael wanted them to have. She will provide them with a love for God.

On a more personal note, I would like to add that I have been raised with the Jackson 5, the Jacksons, and Michael and Janet Jackson's Music. All the songs I have heard from these amazing PEOPLE have been inspirational and have been an integral part of my life. I myself was raised by my own wonderful mother and she instilled values and morals similar to those Katherine Jackson instilled in her beautiful children.

Having said that, I wanted to comment on the announcement of the rightfully deserved tribute to Michael Jackson that was said to take place in September in Vienna, Austria. I am very happy that his very selfless life will be honored, but I am hurt to my core that this wonderful tribute will not be held here in the states. I am hurt because there are tens of millions of fans here in the US who would also love to take a part in this tribute. There are many beautiful places here that would be a lovely backdrop for such a tribute. I feel very hurt that Michael was taken at such a young age from all of us. I feel like he was my friend through his generous deeds and beautiful music.

Are American fans being shut out because of tabloid lies? It certainly feels that way. I am just as much a fan as anyone in Europe. Why shouldn't I and other fans here in the country have the same opportunity to say our good-byes as well? I am not making this about me. I am speaking on behalf of many people who are my friends and family who have always supported Michael through everything...the tabloid crap...the ludicrously frivolous lawsuits and charges throughout the years...even when supposed friends and family members of his were speaking publicly against him...I have cried and I have lost friends over my insistence of his innocence.

I have mourned the loss of this innocent, talented, giving, kind, and loving soul. Michael was unjustly persecuted by the media, tabloid and the press at large. He was bombarded everywhere he went and my heart ached to see him having to defend himself when he did nothing wrong. His entire adult life was dedicated to helping others in this troubled world, especially children.

Those of us who have continued to support him and believe in him should have the right to say good-bye.

When Jermaine made the announcement that this Tribute would be held in Austria, my heart sank in my chest and I cried as I did upon learning of Michael's death. I felt like he was taken from us all over again. Please reconsider your choice, or at least come up with a way to make this tribute more readily accessible to ALL of Michael's fans.

All of Michael's tours took place abroad, and we here never had the opportunity to see his magic on stage when he was alive. Please don't take this away from us as well. I feel like the fans here in the US are being punished for the lies told by the media over the years. His TRUE fans don't care about the lies the media have printed about Michael. We never have.

All we care about at this time is to be allowed to take some part in honoring this remarkable man: the support he gave to charities around the world, the music he created, and the love he gave to his family, friends, and dedicated fans. Michael has shattered records and won many, many awards world wide.He has surpassed all expectations of simply a "pop" artist and has been deemed "The King of Pop." But he is more than that. He is and always will be, the King of Music. He means so much more to us than that...

He showed us how important childhood is and how imperative it is to care for the children. Michael showed us how to care for one another again. Since his death, petty issues don't seem to mean as much. In my life, I have realized how shallow I have been. I am focusing on the most important things in my life; God, my children, and my family members. During his life, he taught us how to love. Since his death, many people I know have learned how to apply this in their lives.

His legacy will never be forgotten. He has influenced every genre of music and dance, but more importantly, he has touched so many lives with his kindness and generosity and love for those less fortunate than himself.

He has done so much for all of us and I know that there are many fans in the United States who would love to be able to give something back to him...or at least say good-bye with those he loved the most.

God bless and be with you in this time of need. God bless and be with all of us.

Jame   August 8th, 2009 12:00 am ET

Patty Anderson it's coming on again right now.

Angel St Grace   August 8th, 2009 12:01 am ET

My Dear Jermaine..I too have the same mission as you. Michael's crossing cut a whole in my heart. i love his music and dancing, stayed all night to get tickets, then he cancelled! No problems...But my real love for your brother was indeed his beautiful soul. He affected me in a way i can't explain. I have lived my life working to make the world a better place in my own little ways. I have no money, no great talent, just lots of unconditional love, like Michael. I have had many dreams as of his passing, and have felt he has motivated me to move my little ministry to a dancing ministry. The words on the inside of his Dangerous album said it all. Through dance and music we can touch the Sacred. My life has changed for ever. Not because we lost an entertainer, but because we lost the soul of Michael Jackson.
Jermaine I love watching you talk about Michael, you are so special. Yiou have the same essence, the same love in your soul. i have recorded your conversations with Larry King, to watch when i feel sad. i love the Neverland interview, what a beautiful place. It should be cleared of all the old memories of his tortured police raid, and brought back to what HE made it, a wonderland for children. That would do him honor and show the world his true light. The money raised could go to his beautiful children and to his charities. He would love that. Keep workin on your mother, maybe she will see it differently soon. Bless you Jermaine, and keep up the wonderful work you are doing supporting and defending your brother, I've been doing alot of that lately myself. He is so loved...I think I just wrote a book..this is really lONG...I never comment, so i guess I know why!! Namaste, Angel

In undergraduate school, I wrote a thesis on the effects of the Psychological effects of the media on child stars. It saddens me to see how much of my research reflects Micheal Jackson's life.
I commend Jermaine and Joe Jackson...and all the family members and friends who speak up in the media so that Micheal's memory will not be tainted with slander and dysfunction. The fact remains... that MJ was a fine person who lived in a fish bowl littered with false accusations and hurtful lies. This man was a humanitarian, a son a uncle, a brother... and more important than anything else. he is three childrens' father. MJ does not deserve any type a disresepct to his memory. He was a supreme entertainer... but most importantly... he was a human being.

Renee Wade   August 8th, 2009 12:03 am ET

I feel Jermaine did a wonderful job on Larry King. I always felt the Jackson family were close and good people. Jermaine your Mother and Father did a wonderful job in raising you and the others. I know you are muslim but I want to say Jesus was crucified because he would perform miracles and spread love to everyone even haters; when he proclaimed to be associated with God he was condemed for it. (For you ignorant people I am not comparing Michael to Jesus) but when good tries to prevail the devil always comes around and try to make it harder on those who know the truth and live the truth. Michael is with God now but I believe his death will not go in vain because love was the message he conveyed and for that so many lives will be touched and so many souls will be apart of his love. That is what God want us to do. Jermaine God bless you and your family and you look great. I remember as a 5 year old watching the Jackson cartoon and my brother and sisters with me would sing your songs and we were and still are very very proud of the Jacksons. We call your family the American Royalty. I love you and will continue to pray for you.

Ellen Larson   August 8th, 2009 12:06 am ET

jermaine was remarkable! He shows that there is more to life than a great career, as much happiness as that might bring. The most remarkable things in life are family, friends, and GOD.

Pzmella Jackson   August 8th, 2009 12:08 am ET

Michael's death has birthed Jermaine to continue his brothers legacy, I believe this will help Jermaine heal.

Susan   August 8th, 2009 12:08 am ET


The Jackson's-All American Dream movie had 3 producers. One of the producers was Jermaine Jackson. The movie was the visual version of Katherine's book. The movie had been editted.

ace   August 8th, 2009 12:10 am ET

@ Cassandra:
BRAVO! For one so young, you really understand what Michael IS all about. That was a very insightful and inspiring message. I wish these so-called "journalists" had some of your insights....
Thank you for posting and proving that Michael's work transcended generations.

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 12:14 am ET

Jame thanks I have it on.

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 12:16 am ET

Amen Jermaine Those are Micheals children. Get ove rit Dr. Klein you are such a swine!!!

kathy   August 8th, 2009 12:16 am ET

I think the most important thing people are forgetting about Michael Jackson is that he was some one's son. Let Kathryn mourn the lost of her son without all of the media stuff. She will never see her son again in the physical give her some peace.

Niura Schwartz   August 8th, 2009 12:20 am ET

Good Evening Larry,
I read some where that Jemaine went to Vienna last month to receive The Save the World Award on Michael's behalf. The Rodin Bronze . Michael received many awards in his life for his achievements as a humatarian that he really was, but I don't believe your Larry King Cardiac Foudantion was in his list . I understand that it will be Jermaine's Foundation or is it? . Anyway, now the entire Jackson Family became humanitarians La Toya with The Aids Project in Los Angeles who it will be next? The only one who deserves credit is Michael because he did donate form his heart he never had to have Blogs or websites to give he simply did . You know Larry, this Tribute to Michael in Vienna will have fans maybe from Germany, and maybe from Italy because of its proximity . We don't know how much the ticket is going to cost yet but I bet it will expensive and the Palace they showed on the site is not a castle is the Vienna Opera House. So, if this is a tribute to Michael and we the fans count why in Europe?
They MISS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well let's see what are they are up to and congratulations I did not know your wife couls sing.
Thank you.

Vitoria   August 8th, 2009 12:23 am ET

To all the respect looks like even Jermaine also has lot to learn from his beloved brother , lots of questions were not answered , they could had focused more on Michael artistic work and his humanitarian work
we all know that Michael helped children that needed transplant .
what happened to the funds raised for We Are The world campaign ?
who was Michael role model and Idol ?
what was Michael Philosophy and Legacy ?
Are the funds for his children been protected in a trust funds ?
How come Jermaine wasn't aware of the delay for the autopsy ?
sorry I am very grateful for the interview , listening to Jermaine feels like he still under shock over Michael's Death and confused as well
Maybe I expected to much .

Alicia Gisentaner-S.   August 8th, 2009 12:23 am ET

Jermaine is always captivating when he is interviewed, especially about his dear brother Michael. I, and so many in the world hurt from this tragic loss of Michael. I can't begin to understand the pain his family is going through.
Jermaine has been known to be the spokes person for family issues, and mainly now for Michael's. He is dignified in his presence, as well as the way he answers questions. Though so many speak badly about Michael, Joseph or the Jackson Family-period, he stays in the profound, dignified and classy manner that they all were taught, while discussing issues even about some of these "Jackson Attackers".
I wish the Jackson family peace and all the best in days to come.
I will certainly be on the look out for Jermaine's upcoming events for his brother's message to be kept alive. I hope to be able to participate in all that I am able to.

Thank you for having Jermaine Jackson on the show. He is a welcomed interview about Michael or his family, anytime.

LuCinda Douglas   August 8th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Jermaine: I want to say that I feel deeply for him and his families loss. I loved and will always love Michael Jackson. Michael was a true angel on earth. Jermaine is an honest, sweet, intelligent, man and I can see why his family is so close. I pray for healing in the family. It makes my heart smile knowing that Michael has a brother to take part of his childrens life as wonderful as Jermaine.

linda henson   August 8th, 2009 12:29 am ET

qwe loved michael...and I feel like Iunderstood him...more than most!!! it is a SHAME...michael was so LOVED...even more so after his death!! BURT I BELIEVE HE IS LOOKING DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND GOD IS SHOWERING HIM WITH LOVE & BLESSINGS!! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU...IS MY PRAYER!

Angela   August 8th, 2009 12:31 am ET


Your soul mirrors Michael's in that there are very few genuine people in this world. You can turn all that they did to his reputation around and create ways in order that his name and mission lives forever.

Anna   August 8th, 2009 12:33 am ET

I was so moved to see Michael's beautiful children singing to him on your show. Especially their own version of "You are my Sunshine". I used to sing this same song to my daughter all the time when she was young. I still tell her "she will always be my sunshine" in her birthday cards to this day. She is 21 now. I do hope the kids keep singing this song to their father even though they can't see him. They have to remember that he is right there beside them, forever, watching over them. I am so very glad that Michael had children to carry on his legacy.

Chris   August 8th, 2009 12:34 am ET

I hate that "Jacko" crap also, people need to start showing some respect for a man gave a lot to the whole world. So what if he did not act normal, what is normal for a king of pop?

Kathy   August 8th, 2009 12:34 am ET

I am very happy to see Jermaine actively taking part in Michael's wishes.
It would be extremely difficult to express all I feel about Michael and his family. I have grown up with them & have high regard for all the things they have accomplished and passed on to the world. I loved Michael so much and I'm glad to see his family making sure all his wishes are kept.
His work, his love, his caring for all the world will carry on in our hearts and for those who listened & will pass it on.
Love to your family Jermaine
Looking up, smiling for Michael with a prayer of peace!
p.s. Thank you Larry for all your wonderful work.

Amy   August 8th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Sorry to be a spoil-sport, but instead of this upcoming concert, how remarkable would it have been for all the celebrities and common-folk to work side-by-side on one humanitarian act ~ in Michael's honor!?

Jame   August 8th, 2009 12:44 am ET

No problem Patty Anderson, have you seen the other blog the one with over a thousand comments? Wow they are pretty heated over there thank god I'm over here.

Anna   August 8th, 2009 12:46 am ET

Wow Cassandra – you express yourself so brilliantly. What an amazing message you have sent. Thank you so much. You have touched my heart with your insight.

Vitoria   August 8th, 2009 12:48 am ET

By the way
Please Let Michael's body lay to rest before planning a International concert , great Idea but a little bit to soon , we his fans are not going anywhere we will always love and support Michael's legacy and music
now and 100 years from now His music and talents will be appreciated

sam   August 8th, 2009 12:50 am ET

I cant help but remember seeing Joe Jackson on the red carpet the night of the BET awards promoting his business and thinking, what a pimp.And now you have Jermaine claiming Michael was his baby always had his back that he loved him, while claiming he didnt know anything about Michael's drug problem. I guess Joe and Jermaine overslept and were not able to attend the intervention some of the family had with Michael in Las Vegas. At the end of the BET awards it was Michael's baby sister Janet who showed grace and dignity when she said " to you he was an icon, but to us he was family ( gotta wonder who the US was she was referring to with that phrase)" . She then thanked everyone for their love and support and walked off stage. I feel for those of Mjs family who are truly mourning his loss, but as far as Joe(pimp) and Jermaine go, I guess the apple doesnt fall far from the tree. And on a final note, I would like to say to Joe and Jermaine I hope you lose in your request ( for financial profit i'm sure) to have Michael buried at rode his coat-tails and ass while he was alive..................... not let him R.I.P.

Wendi Jennings   August 8th, 2009 12:51 am ET


You are an incredible man, as was your brother. He was a great humanitarian, however, I think his heart actually was too big. He hurt for the whole world, and that can way heavily on a person's sole that really really cares about others as he did. Not to say that you don't, because I believe from what I know about you, which is not enough probably since I don't watch TV much and don't really believe in the word "Celebrity" because I know that we are the same, created the same. I just can not see the intrigue about Celeberity's and what they are doing – it's no different than what we are all doing.

What is different is your career and products of it, and most importantly that you and your family have all been raised to understand that giving is more important than taking. That's what everyone should be trying to watch and learn from, not where you shop! You have brought a sense of dignity, pride, and integrity to all of the weird talk surrounding Micheal and really allowed the world to see him as a person instead of just an extremely talented celebrity that is strange.

Keep up the wonderful work on our world, and hopefully others will follow instead of following this awful tabloids and shows that are on TV today.

Mary   August 8th, 2009 12:51 am ET

I was really looking forward to this interview and was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! It was basically the same interview Larry did with Jermaine at Neverland! I felt J was treated with kid gloves. No real dialogue or questions answered! J's continuing with the "I don't know" and his consistent denial of Michael's drug use lacks in credibility! He was with MJ during his trial in which the drug use was brought up then! I could tell MJ used drugs just by looking at photos! The issue of Omer's paternity can be resolved with a simple DNA test. He lives in the same house as his mother but doesn't know the burial plans?! He doesn't know if MJ converted to Islam? It would be best if he just answered "No comment". In my opinion Michael's tragic death (and the subsequent reality of his LIFE), offer a unique opportunity for the Jackson family....get REAL! Facing the issues, no matter how painful can save the family and MJ's children from repeating the past and move forward towards an honest future. Doesn't anyone see the irony in how all of the secrecy and denial is what led to MJ's sad life and death? Give his children something better.
I could not believe that the "surprise" was song and music from LK's wife and Jermaine! What about Michael's Heal The World Foundation??

Silvia   August 8th, 2009 12:55 am ET

Jermain, you seem to be such a down to earth, simple, sincere, loving and caring person.

Alicia Gisentaner-S.   August 8th, 2009 12:55 am ET

Dear Jermaine,

I am nearly the age of your baby sister. She is four years older than me. Yet, I have grown up, my entire life, listening to and loving all The Jackson 5 albums, The Jackson's, your solo music, and of course Michael's. I was lucky enough at the age of 6 yrs old to be given the first few Jackson 5 albums made that I did not have already. As the years went on, I continued purchasing and listening to all of the music, going to every concert near my city, and loving the entire Jackson family without ever knowing any of you personally.
I felt a connection with Michael at such a young age. He was my special Jackson! Continuing still today.

You all are blessed with amazing talent. I feel God put your family on this Earth for a purpose, one only He may ever fully know. I, with all of my heart, believe Michael was in the spotlight from the day he was born. God's spotlight. God sent him to this world with His many blessings, for a purpose, and Michael carried out his duties-to the fullest.
Michael's gift of music , dance and his huge, loving heart touched a magnitude of people all over the world. So many people felt a connection to him in some fashion, not just as a fan. He was honestly loved by those of us who understand the greatness this man was made of. He changed music, he changed lives, he in his own way has changed the world.

God has a purpose for everything. He sent Michael here to serve a purpose, and obviously it was fulfilled. So He sent for Michael. Sadly, it was so soon. But his time on Earth was done.
I know Michael is in a better place. He is finally at peace, and probably playing and running, and doing all the fun things his heart desires!

I wish you and your siblings, Michael's children, all of the many Jackson members, and especially your parents-peace, continued love and support, and unending companionship from your angel, Michael.

Holly Ruth Rasmussen   August 8th, 2009 1:00 am ET

Thank you Larry for having Jermaine on your show. He is a very special beautiful person. You guys have a really cool connection. I like the way you are with him and I like the way he is with you.

Jermaine.... Im so very sorry for loss of Micheal... I would trade all the entertainers to have Micheal Back.... I will really miss him... this world has lost sooooo much..

Im surprized our families have never met but I don't think my grandfather would let us have contact with the Jackson family there was so much controversey and so much money involved

I hope you keep Never Land Ranch.... I believe in you Jermaine. And your dad Joe is a character.

God Bless your hear.

Rachel   August 8th, 2009 1:08 am ET

Oh brother..........the vultures do come out don't they. Does Jermaine
Jackson really think that people don't see him as trying to jumpstart
or how about start a career off of his brothers death. HELLO people see through this but no offense Larry your wife is on the list to of the many trying to hoan in on the tragic death of Michael Jackson..
the Jackson brothers and Janet couldnt fill the front row of any place...
the whole thing is so sad because Michael cant address any of this.
I got a big feeling that all the big plans to make big money selling junk souviners is all gonna fizzle and bomb trying to make a buck on the only talent in that greedy family!!

Lorraine Williams   August 8th, 2009 1:08 am ET

Jermaine my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I grew up listening to your family's music. I,m truly devastated that Michael is no longer with us. There is not a day that goes by I don't think about him.But I know his legacy will live on in his music. through all of us .I thank God for the entire Jackson family being apart of my families lives.Also thank you Jermaine for caring about the fans that didn't get to go to Michael's memorial.But wish they could of been there.Love the fact that you were always their for your brother.

Jame   August 8th, 2009 1:10 am ET

Rachel, I thought all the money made is going to Charity?

Robert Johnson   August 8th, 2009 1:11 am ET

For one Jermaine doesn't paid child support nor take responsiblity of his own children, how come his x wife have to live with his mother for support . All of a sudden, Jermaine wants to continue Michale's dream, as one says, this will help him heal, please Jermaine will continue to stand on Michale's shoulders and take it to the most that will be advantage/recognizance to/for Jermaine, we'll be seeing more of Jermaine, singing, more interviews and finally records of Jermaine coming out. And that hair style, how much "grease" does Jermaine applied to keep his sides down, does he tide a towel around his head, Jermaine is not Michale, Michale was the heart/soul of the Jacksons, when Michale left the group, Jermaine couldn't carrry the group nor even had a career of being a singer. Oh yes Jermaine talks about Michale but Jermaine also pressing on to get recognizance for himself, rather listen to other Jacksons such as Janet and Michale's other brothers. There was talk about Michale and his brothers having a another tour togeather, how come Michale said no to his brothers and chose to do his concert in London? Michale supported his brothers with their last concert together because of his Mother, Michale chose not to do it again. .

JeniferCincyohio   August 8th, 2009 1:13 am ET

What makes me glad is that Jamaine reminds me so much of Michael. He has the little lip thing going on how they bite on both of them at the same time and how he lifts up his sholders. I am the kind of person who notice the smallest things in people. all the jacksons sound a like but yet different. but Jamaine deffintly reminds me of Michael. in some way. i am happy to see him talking to people about this and letting people know what is going on. i love the jackson family. i bless them for everything, i cant wait till the cd comes out. i love you Jackson family. Rest in Peace Michael.

Rachel   August 8th, 2009 1:14 am ET

Oh one more thing HA ...the last thing the whole cast of characters
crawling out of the woodwork including the Jackson Family except the sweet innocent children of MJ...the last thing they are all thinking about is poor Michael Jackson....they havent even buried the poor guy!!!
they are too busy thinking and worrying about how they can make money now and quickly before
people lose interest in all this.......hopefully people will never forget the pure talent and music Michael gave to the world....

violet sparkes   August 8th, 2009 1:16 am ET

I have always had an interest in Micheal and the Jackson family well being. Micheal was such a loving and sensitive person. He cared so much about children and animals. I loved to see the home videos of him at Neverland when the children where younger, and I noticed there was a young chimp there and the chimp was just playing around. That was so funny and I could hear Micheal laughing. So funny!

All my love

Niura Schwartz   August 8th, 2009 1:18 am ET

The only question that Jermaine answer that I believe is the truth was the one about him feeling Michael's spirit in the mornings when all still quiet ! Because, he is just trying to take a ride on Michael's name as usual. He doesn't have the Charm that Michael had nor the refinement and I don't understand why on that Tribute site Michael's picture based on a paiting is of a Michael from the 80's usualy the last pictures of the Person is used and Michael had beautiful moments and better pictures of himsef. I don't think he would have approved that one.I don't get it ! And are they aware of the costs to travel to Austria for Americans right now? This tribute is not about Michael is about themselfs and I am very disappointed with CNN for this interview. There are other ways to make a tribute to Michael after all he is The King of Pop and he will be in his fans hearts forever !!!!
I pray for his soul to find peace he is at peace and I am sure that the only people who truly Michael are his three children and we his fans.
And I hope his is buried in a beautiful place. Michael you are in my heart and prayers forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you!!!!!!!!!!!! Rest in Peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rachel   August 8th, 2009 1:20 am ET

JAME- Please open your eyes..........have you been following the news?
the lawyers are rushing the judge and the courts regarding merchandising because they know that will come the time people lose interest and when that happens NO MONEY TO BE MADE.
Jermanine releasing a single of the song he sang at the memorial
Smile and the world smiles with you?
Are you gonna buy that? the jackson family doing a reunion without Michael not gonna fly!!!!!!

#1mjfan   August 8th, 2009 1:22 am ET

everyone, don't forget mj's bday is aug.29th. pls. go to to leave an online flower on his online page.

Teri   August 8th, 2009 1:24 am ET

I'm sure that Michael was a very good person and will be sorely missed, for many reasons. For me, I wonder if he knew Jesus Christ, because that is what is important. God is in control and we all will leave here one day and hopefully Michael did make it to heaven, in spite of all the acolades!! I pray for his children because they have a long journey ahead and strength for Mrs. Jackson for the challenges she will have. The media need to get a life and leave them along. Blessing for the entire Jackson family .

Stella   August 8th, 2009 1:25 am ET

I have a theory on Dr. Murray's timeline. I think he found Michael already deceased about 9:00 a.m. He did not call 911 right away be-cause he took time to cover some of his tracks, plus gave more time for the diprivan to leave Michael's system. The "panic" at noon was staged. How could he explain why he didn't call 911 immediately? So he made it appear that he had just found Michael.

Tina   August 8th, 2009 1:25 am ET

I just really want to say thank you for Jermaine. How he said it it was the way it is and more people need to realize that. I myself am trying to put Michael's ways into action through my own life. I will never believe anything anyone or the media might say bad about Michael and the Jacksons because the whole family are good caring people. I agree 110% with everything Jermaine said in the interview as well.

Thank You Jermaine
God Bless you and the whole Jackson family
I pray for you all every night and I also talk to Michael and tell him I love him.

JW   August 8th, 2009 1:33 am ET

Hello Larry:
Your interview with Jermaine Jackson was most interesting. It seems to me that Jermaine has moved out from the shadow of his younger brother. I wish you, Jermaine and your lovely wife most success in the up-coming venture. I also think you should work at bringing Mrs. Jackson's voice to the public. Excellent show

Jame   August 8th, 2009 1:34 am ET

If people haven't lost interest in Michael since his first hit record and we are now in 2009 I don't think it is likely that they will lose interest any time soon. At least I know I won't.

I also thought the concert in Vienna the proceeds were going to Charities.

#1mjfan thanks for the info I think the flower page is wonderful.

James Garner   August 8th, 2009 1:38 am ET

WOW! I'm impressed! You could have taken a break from the Michael Jackson coverage and maybe do a discussion (Maybe 5, 10, 15 minutes, tops) on the passing of John Hughes; but you decided to squeeze every last drop out of Michael Jackson. I expect this junk from Geraldo Rivera, but not Larry King Live. Guess it's all MJ until Eunice Kennedy Shriver or Ted Kennedy passes away. (No disrepect intended to the Kennedys or the Shrivers)

Ericka   August 8th, 2009 1:54 am ET

Hello, I'm from Mexico and I couldn't watch all the interview done to Jermaine Jackson and I want to watch it complete but only appears an edited version so I wonder if would be able to type at least all the interview, or pass it complete in a blog?? I really apreciate that
greetings for MR. Larry King

I have been searching for tribute2009 but can't find it anywhere. Has anyone else had that problem?

Michael will never be forgotten – will always be loved!

kathy hawkins   August 8th, 2009 2:15 am ET

i thought the interview with jermaine jackson was very enlightening and truthful about his younger brother micheal you can still see the pain in his face and my heart goes out to him everyone knows the close bond he had with his brother even all the way back to the days when the brothers left motown and he stayed my heart goes out to him and his whole family and remain in my prayer every night that people will leave them alone and allow them to grieve for their brother micheal yes we loved micheal as and entertainer and the world has lost a great singer but we can only imagine the loss his family and especially his brother feels at the loss of micheal at age 60 please give them the respect the deserve and leave them alone

Week Nite Watcher   August 8th, 2009 2:38 am ET

Watched Jermaine’s interview. It was beautiful. Very respectful, gracious, tender.

Jermaine’s exchange with Larry reminded me of the essence of Michael’s heart. Sweet and caring. Sincere and gentle. He rose above prying questions without being contrary or evasive. He simply removed himself from the discussion until by his own words the facts are available.

What an exciting tribute to the Fans and Michael’s memory. The event in Vienna and the music released between Shawn and Jermaine. And for such good causes.

Here's an idea for Larry King Live – since he and his family have been devoting so much time to MJ. And thank you for space to express and exchange so many, many comments.

Why not create a Blog asking for Michael Jackson's Number One Fan to explain in 50 words or less before MJ's birthday why they are that person?

The most profound response would earn some time on LKL and perhaps some connection with one of the future tributes in MJ's honor.

Just an idea.....!!!!

Lily Mae   August 8th, 2009 2:53 am ET

Annette, that string bracelet MJ's wearing is a "Rakhi" ..Girls from India tie rakhi to their brothers, turn the boys "will love and protect" the girls. If am not mistaken rakhi day was last wednesday, aug 6

I think it will be great if in every year on 29-th August will be a concert with many enertainers , in the Memory of Michael Jackson(The King of Music), and all the money from that concert to be give to helpless people. Michael will be happy to see that he can steel hepl the people even he is there in Heaven.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 3:26 am ET

" I dont like to draw any conclusions util I have the facts"

Did you hear that? If the brother can keep his head cool then the world should be able to.

Bobbie   August 8th, 2009 3:28 am ET

Hi Jermaine,

I would like to say I admire you for speaking out about your brother Michael. He is one of God's creations and I am sure he is with God. I would like for more of Michael's favorite charities to be funded. The charities that were mentioned are good, but what about the other things Michael was trying to accomplish? Also, I can never see Michael resting peacefully at Neverland, it nearly destroyed him. He looked so heartbroken by those unintelligent people accusing him of falsehoods. So what if he had a child innocently in his bedroom, that doesn't mean anything. My children are grown and sometimes when they come home to visit they jump right in my bed. Harmlessly! Maybe a more monumental place should be a setting where the family could purchase other property and bury him there. He could be visited , the family could maintain and stay on or near the same property and everyone could feel better knowing that Michael's resting place could be safe with security 24 hrs.I believe all fans would love that. He deserves respect and the much needed peace he longed for so desperately on this earth. I grew up listening to the Jackson 5 and Michael, after I had children they listened to his music. My first daughter loved his album Off the Wall so much, I had to buy another one, she wore it out! She was only 21/2 yrs. old, but loved Micheal's music. She is now 27 and she and I cried and were so saddened by this loss. It will be a long time coming, no one who loves someone gets over death easily. We lost my husband and father 16 yrs. ago and the pain is still too deep. He was murdered by a psycho, while doing his work that God gifted him to do too. Only time heals pain, and then you never forget, the love, the memories,things done together. May you and your family find peace in knowing that God had a purpose for Michael and it was through his music,talents & love of charitable efforts throughout the world.

On a different note, I do not see the complete picture of Jermaine riding on Michael's coattails or anyone else in the family completely. If Michael wanted to help his family so be it. The Jackson children were all very talented(girls & boys). They can still perform, so why not continue the legacy that was built a long time ago.

On another note,Dr. Murray, shame on you as a professional(so-called). No Medical Doctor in their right mind would have done what you did. It was wrong, the AMA should throw the books at you as well as the law. Were you stealing this medication from some hospital? You are going to be held accountalbe. Doctors who are true professionals know everthing there is to know about their patients when they see them on regular bases and they know the meds that their patients are taking. You took Pharmacology,Continuing Medical Education classes as well as being updated on all of the latest medicines that come out on the market by medical seminars, if you are highly qualified. Micael may have begged and asked repeatedly for these drugs, but why did you take the Hipocratic Oath? Don't you know you are to save lives, not destroy them??? You are a very poor example to the medical profession, just as any others who gave meds freely without checking current meds and checking pharmacists to see if perhaps Michael had too many meds already. Did you ask him what he was taking? He may have hidden somethings, but he surely should have been given drug screenings to see what was in his system already. Dr. Murray you are truly a disgrace to all.

May you rest peacefully Michael, and to the Jackson Family my sincere condolances and please find out what actually killed Michael. Let him be buried where everyone who loved Michael could visit him.

Thank you Larry King for letting us see so much coverage of Michael and his family, not everyone wants to know about him, but so many people really loved Michael and want to stay abreast of what is going on with the death of him. Thank you very much. I watch your show nightly. You too have special talents.

Emeka   August 8th, 2009 3:30 am ET

What a big loss! Michael, we will surely miss you. Adieu.

Camelia - Romania   August 8th, 2009 3:38 am ET

Michael will live forever in my heart , even my heart is steel crying for him now. I think it is time to change the world in a better place like Michael says. Let's do it. Today will be an flashmob for Michael in Bucharest -Romania.

Randi   August 8th, 2009 3:46 am ET

Like other greats who died before we were ready to let them go,
he will always be missed.

No matter what anyone said about him, he was simply a wonderful human being, a gift from God. His truth was taken from him.

I hope there will be a day when he can rest in peace. He deserves it.

lostemperor   August 8th, 2009 3:53 am ET

Someone knows, what those plasters were Michael put around his fingers sometimes and what they are for?

Carrie H.   August 8th, 2009 4:02 am ET

Hi Jermaine,

I wanted to offer my condolensces for the loss of your brother and extend my prayers to your wonderful family. It broke my heart to hear you sing Michael's favorite song at the memorial. I wished with all my heart that I would have been one of the lucky ones to get a "golden ticket," but didn't. I appreciate your acknowledgment of the dedicated fans who could not be there but were in their hearts. Lots of love comes to you and the rest of the Jackson Family from Arizona.

I had hoped that Michael would be buried at Neverland since he always said it was his favorite place...his dream come true...his own sanctuary away from the world and the media where he could have a second childhood. I truly loathe those who tried to use Neverland against Michael, proclaiming that it was a trap for little boys. I know in my heart that he meant only pure and innocent uses for Neverland. He wanted to share his magical little world with the underpriveleged children of the world.

The music of the Jackson 5, the Jacksons, Janet, and Michael Jackson, have set the soundtrack of my life, and I am grateful for it.

I hope you will all consider going on tour. We love all of you!

On the 30th anniversary of Michael's Career, I was overwhelmed with emotion when I saw all six of you brothers together again on stage. Michael often talked about how hard it was to look over and not see you there. He said you were at his left shoulder. I sang along out loud and was so OVERJOYED to see you all doing your old dance moves. I know that it would be a big hit, and a great triumph for you guys to retake your places at your brother's side, in memory. Janet knows all the moves and sounds quite similar to Michael. They rehearsed together a lot in the 1990's, as I understand.

I know that it must be hard for you to talk about things right now. It has only been 6 weeks now, but it feels like forever. I am hoping that Michael can be laid to rest soon, as do millions of other of his fans out there, but you guys are his family and if you can take it, so can we. The body is only a shell for something far greater, and the important thing is for the living to have peace. Michael's worries of this world are over now. It is the family of a decedent that are all left to pick up the pieces. Just remember that there are fans who love and support all of you, and always have. We will be here when the pieces have been put back together.

Jackson fans have rhinocerous skin like Michael did. We are a tough bunch. We can take the lies and the tabloids as long as we remember our faith in God and each other. We aren't going anywhere. I don't know if you will read this, but I hope that if you read negative posts, you will take it with a grain of salt. If they don't care then they shouldn't even take the time to visit this site.

Michael means so much to the world, and in the aftermath of his death, we will still be united behind you, whatever you all decide.

Jermaine, please do try to hold something here in the United States. Michael was born and died here. We love him and miss him too, and would greatly appreciate an opportunity to pay our respects as well.

all my love to Jackson family! love you always Michael!

gisela   August 8th, 2009 4:23 am ET

I respect Deepak Chopra's comments and insightfulness on Michael's life; as for some of the other family members like Jermaine and Joe it seems like a major disconnect with the rest of the family. Michael's mother needs to put her son to rest; I agree with the others that this matter be taken care of foremost. Please lets hear more from Dr. Chopra; no more Jermaine or Joe distractions.

CHARLENE T.   August 8th, 2009 4:28 am ET

i think that it is very sad that mj is gone,but the time GOD had for him it is over only time can and will heal all wounds but if you take one day at a time and remove those photos or tv news allday you will never heal it is like being brain washed so people let it go i know that it is hard but let it go.i can say that because i lost my father and i looked at his pictures in his coffin and i cryed every day and i got very depressed until one day at a time i stopped looking.but i will see him again not in this life but in the here after.GOD does all thing for a reson so just pray for his mother who bore him just think how she's feeling and his children even if he did not have part in making them he took a grater part for being there for them,that is more than the the BIG men that have that part in making them. thank you C.L IN AK

Monica   August 8th, 2009 4:34 am ET

I am so glad Jermain, to see you back on Larry's show! I love the idea of a tribute concert, what a wonderful way to remember your brother, Michael! And I know he is smiling down on you now! I miss him terribly as I am sure the world does! Take care! And Rest in Peace Michael.

KarlaJ   August 8th, 2009 5:12 am ET

Jermaine, I have yet to see the light at the end of this dark tunnel I have been going through since Michaels' death, I don't think I could ever get over this, it is breaking my heart to the point of no return. What makes this hurt the most is that it all could have been prevented, this is why it hurts so much more and makes it all so diffcult to diggest, he's gone too soon, due to not getting the help he so needed from the people that could give him that help. I'm sorry but I don't know how this you say you could not see, it was so obvious, he even said it once himself he was addicted to pain medication, he said it to the world in a TV message, he looked so derailed at some point during the trials, he could barely walk at some point, how could this have been taken so lightly. As a fan I would have done whatever it would have taken, but I couldn't, I am just a stranger in his life with no possibility of getting near him, but I honestly trusted that the family would have watched over him more closely, at some point I thought he was just fine, but when I saw him at the announcement of his O2 concerts, I was shocked, he didn't even look like him, he was so thin, he looked like he had aged so much in so little time, honestly he did not look healthy to me at all and it concerned me, how could the family not see this.

I have so much pain, nothing can ever take it away. I feel so much for those beautiful children, they did not deserve to lose their most precious dad and yet they were also in the dark and didn't get the opportunity to do something to help him. I feel so bad for them, they lived with him and yet they were children and could not understand if something was not right.

Anger fuels my pain to the point that I feel I will burst into a million pieces and I cannot help it. I do offer my sincere condolences to you and the family but I also offer an apology because I just cannot cope with the idea that no one knew anything, we have lost so much more that Michael had yet to give.

Cris   August 8th, 2009 5:31 am ET

After all the TV publicity, it's now time to focus on the humanitarian side of Michael. Jermaine, keep up the good work! There are millions of people behind you! Anything we can do to help...we'll be there! Thanks for all you do Jermaine, and may Michael rest in peace!

Scarlett   August 8th, 2009 5:37 am ET

At Michael's memorial he was honored with an award and plaque for his humanity by Congress. Why has it never been mentioned again?? It was not shown on any of the clips from the memorial, never mentioned on any of the news casts, what's up with that?

Bella   August 8th, 2009 5:44 am ET

His fingers were severly burnt during the Pepsi Ad in 1984 when he tried to move the fire out of his hair, that's how it started...

Tacko   August 8th, 2009 5:51 am ET

We often don't know the true value and nature of people until they are gone and that is very unfortunate.

Jermaine, the words you use to talk about your brother Micheal are so cheerful to my heart: peace, joy, love, incredible, doing things for others... just give me the feeling that Micheal was a close friend and a dear brother to me too.

May Allah (SWT) give you, your family, your dear ones, especially the kids, and all the people who love Michael, the strength to overcome this big loss.

Sharing with you from Dakar, Senegal

chuma obodoeze   August 8th, 2009 5:52 am ET

Jermaine, We all love michael very much and most of all, God love him more....Michael will remain the greatest singer, entertainer, dancer who ever lived on earth..

Zak   August 8th, 2009 6:04 am ET

Are you kidding with this type of reporting? What is obvious, is that Michael's children look nothing like him, the Jackson Family is obviously not close and that is all okay. Trying to present a different perspective after the fact is not. Larry King's report is nothing short of irresponsible.

Maria , Europe   August 8th, 2009 6:53 am ET

It is great and right you want to do in Michael's memory. And yes , Europe loves Micheal and understand His humanitarian life , even we are not speaking english. My 17 years boys told me today: i think Michael do for the sick children the same Mother Teresa does .

Sheletta   August 8th, 2009 6:59 am ET

Jermaine, I saw you on the Larry King show, last night I must say you handle your interview very well. I was also happy to see and hear how you will continue where your brother left off. I am pretty sure that he is looking down oh you with a smile, knowning that you are doing his work.

I was a little surprise about how you answer some of Larry's question pertaining to MJ death, which may be understandable since the verdit is not in for which cause Michael to leave this earth and much as he children. You may not know all the answers to Larry question, especially about MJ burial, because your Mother hold all the cards. I feel what she is going threw, to loose a child or someone close to you. I beleived after she finds out what cause Michael death, then she will let everyone know where is final rest place will be, until then be patient with her, after all she has lost a child, as you a brother.

Also, I applause you for not convicting before you know what happen, June 25th between Dr Murray and his mishaps. There will be someone that will pay, but until then I and all his fans will continue to support your family and wait to hear when all has been done.

If the tour happens to come to Northern California, I especially would look forward to attending. May the Lord continue to hold your family together and strong. God Bless you all ... May your brother be at peace above in a better place that we all live. Amen

Claude   August 8th, 2009 7:15 am ET

Dear Larry,
Thank you for all of the insights about the Jackson family that your interviewing brings. Keep it up, it is so interesting

Veronica   August 8th, 2009 7:52 am ET

I'm so glad they will continue to spread MJ's message. God bless you, Jermaine. I want his birthday to become a worldwide charity day because that is what he was all about – that's why God gave him his incredible talent so that he could reach out to the whole world. I also believe that God gave him vitiligo to prove that it really does NOT matter what color you are, you're still the same person. Heal the world, the earth song, lost children, man in the mirror, black or white, and many many others... – listen to his message. The world seems so empty w/o him. I also wish people would get to read his poems and reflections. Also, I wish Neverland to be a place where sick and poor children can continue to come for free to have a great time, just like they could when MJ lived there. Do NOT let lies destroy his dream. I hope MJ knew how loved he really was. R I P, MJ.

Ghita   August 8th, 2009 7:57 am ET

Im so angry after this interview what an insult to Michael how Jermaine denied of seeing Michaels drug addiction and to answer "i dunno" the whole time, geesus you think us fans are retarded or what? Please don't go in front of the camera's no more if this is how you gonna deal with the truth. Like you say yourself Jermaine, what we take home to God are the good things we did, YOU LYING your ass off is something God also will see remember that.
If this is the brother Michael had to deal with simply denying his pain (what lays behind a drug addiction) then it only shows how powerless he must have felt and lonely he must have felt even to his family
You shy Jermaine? for real? get outta here, you aint shy at all, don't act you are Michael your NOT, im so dissapointed about this whole interview what a shame what a disgrace to your Angelic brother
You claim to be uneducated about drugs and will like to stay that way? really? Your brother died of it and not with a gun on his head from Dr Murray (although Mr Murray should rott in hell for enabling the propophol) don't you think this is a good time to get educated about drugs? and all the problems that lays behind it? Cuz its very well known everybody who's addicted to anything are always fighting as lions to get clean again and to stay that way and he was a father of 3 gorgeous children he must have dealed with a lot of quilt torch them the sad thing about addiction is that it goes trough anything
And ofcourse we have to focus of the humanitary side of Michael but please don't keep up all the lies and do the innocent act as " i dunno" Michael was human like he and you said many times and if an angelic human like MIchael can get addicted it only proves in how much pain he must have been. Denying his pain and his struggle is really doing him wrong.
The whole world have their eyes on you now Jermaine please show some grace and let it all out, the truth always win, the truth is on God's side don't forget and Michael has nothing done to be ashamed of even not the addiction, the pain must have been too big, heartbreaking as it is..

mariau   August 8th, 2009 8:31 am ET

to jermaine,
thank you for sharing us your feelings towards Michael, and thank you for letting us know about his mission.
about his legacy, i guess it's better you continue Michael Jackson heal the world foundation rather than to have your own foundation.

because, the fans would rather support Michael Jackson Heal the world to continue his legacy.. around the world.

why not focus to help resolve the case of your brother, then you can do what is your mission.

we love your brother, and willing to continue his legacy to the new generation, but first, we should clean his name, solve his case and find the predators who did this to your brother.

Jermaine, you are kind person like your brother, our concern here is to know and watch the truth about MJ's death.

i hope your family is doing your best to resolve and find out who did this to Michael..

carol   August 8th, 2009 8:32 am ET

I just wrote a very long comment on the other Jermaine Jackson blog. The one that he wrote. Please read. I continued to be so appalled.

Sheryl   August 8th, 2009 8:42 am ET

Nothing wrong with doing a big tribute concert. That's what these artists know how to do, but I also agree with Amy. There should be a way to have all of us here join together to feel like we're doing something in Michael's memory. Perhaps we need to remember this attitude in our own communities as we live and work each day together.

Pamela Lavender   August 8th, 2009 8:50 am ET

Larry and Jermaine, not a day goes by that I don't think of Michael and all that he meant to his fans. Michael represents what is good and pure in this world. Jermaine, the fans want Neverland opened we need a place that we can go to feel close to your brother, a place to smile, remember and mourne. I live on the East coast and did not get to go to the staples center. Jermaine we support you in carrying on Michaels wish to see the world a better place. Thank-You Larry for continuing to cover this story, you ask when will end? I don't think it ever will because love controls the heart and Michael is in all of our hearts.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:59 am ET

It was wunderfull,how Jermaine was speaking about hes breader,about the past,and how good soul he hed,but i dont understand this drog quiestion.I remember,that the family knew about MJ drog problem,thay said,thay was go to MJ without let hem no,so thay can finde the drogs,olso La Toya said,mJ was on rehab.How Jermaine dont know about this nothing?Now or he try to make MJ name nicer,or he dont know nothing about hes brader.
About the faul play i understand,he dont want to say nothing yet,whenn thay dont have every facts in tham hend,and he said,if something bad happend to MJ,thay will know.I hope so!

Esther   August 8th, 2009 9:07 am ET

I love the Jacksons and love Jermaine but there is no way you can say you did not know Michael was doing drugs. Look at the reports that have been released. Look at the 30th anniversary special for Michael. I recently saw it and know there was something very wrong with Michael. It was sad to watch. Michael even admitted it on national TV that he had gotten addicted and was working on healing himself. I know this is very had for the family to accept. They are in denial right now. Also when Jermaine is asked about his Dad he is also in denial. You can see on the interviews Michael did when it came to his Dad his pain was very real. Yes, back then parents did more spanking but it is not normal to beat your child when they can't do a dance move the way you want them to do it. You can not deny what Michael went through with his Dad. I wish Michael could have worked with a professional on the pain that his Dad caused him. Then he could have been grateful for the good things his Dad did do for him. It is a long process.

Lois   August 8th, 2009 9:10 am ET

Thank you Jermaine for your interview with Larry considering you have to put up with the negative vultures (ie people thinking you are riding on MJ's coat tails, saying you are lying or hiding something)...these are the people that put Michael in his early grave, because no one believed him that he was telling the truth! It is obvious that Michael had a fragile, but caring mind and people just crushed him - he was only human. No ONE has a right to judge another person, especially after someone has lost a family member. I lost my brother to suicide and it took me years to come to terms with it. I admire your strength and thank you for your update on the family.

You and the family are in my prayers.

Julie   August 8th, 2009 9:11 am ET


The tribute at the memorial was beautiful and what you are doing now is inspiring us again on what is important and that's giving back and Michael was all about being the humanitarian and thinking about the plight of mankind..poverty, bigotry and being there for somone in need. the tribute concert wil be wonderful! I have one request!

Please use MICHAEL's version of smile, it seems your trying to market yourself. Michael version was perfect! His voice was beautiful!

Terrie   August 8th, 2009 9:13 am ET

Jermaine is not riding the coattails of his famous late brother Michael nor is he is for the money! It seems there have been many outside vultures trying for the big jump for Michael's money. Dr. Klein, the dermatologist, does remind me of a mad scientist, a drunkard, and a sleaze bag! He is a shameless greedy fool who is trying to cash in by trying to be a part of Michael's children's lives. He should just leave the Jacksons alone and let them move on with their lives peacefully.

I hope the police will find the culprit or culprits for supplying Michael the numerous painkillers. Dr. Conrad Murray was the last one with Michael when he died. Too many suspicious events around Dr. Murray which caused the unreasonable demise of Michael Jackson.

On Larry King, Jermaine feels his brother's presence all the time. I believe that Michael will always be there for the family to help them overcome the devastated emotions they are going through with his death. I truly believe that God has sent Michael on a mission to be there for a while to his family to let them know that he's fine and will help them heal. He will be there for them until they recover from their pains.

God's Precious Angel   August 8th, 2009 9:30 am ET

Jermine I can feel Michael's spirit. I was thinking about some things I might ask and say to him if he were here right now and I felt a jolt and I knew it was him-his spirit was with me at that moment I agree with the person above. People labled and criticized Michael. These people did put him in his grave. I don't know how they can sleep at night knowing that they lied on him for monetary gain. This is a person's life we are talking about. How could they have been so cruel. In 2005 I was driving home and I was pregnant at the time with my daughter and I was praying that he was found not guilty. When I heard the verdict on the radio I said thank you God. I've always thought that Michael was a beautiful person. Everytime I hear "You Are Not Alone", I cry. It was one of my favorite songs by him. I love the video and his hair cut. It was becoming to him. It's going to take a while for me to get over too. Jermaine, you guys keep your heads up and keep your brother's memory alive and keep expressing all the wonderful things he did while on this. I will truly miss him. Much love to you and your family.

Bonnie   August 8th, 2009 9:43 am ET

Since the tragic death of Pop's most famous son, Michael Jackson, I have tuned in to Larry King at CNN and have to thank him for keeping Michael's memory alive with all the various interviews, including today's where once again we heard from his brother, Jermaine. One can immediately feel the pain of loss and the love he bears. Another tribute in Vienna sounds a wonderful idea for all his fans who are looking for anything to remember Michael. Continuing all the charitable works Michael started can only benefit a damaged world and help to bring comfort to his beloved family. Perhaps there should be fan participation in this.

As to where Michael should be buried, it is a hard call – we still want him here. How do you give a superstar his peace whilst at the same time allowing his multitude of fans to visit him? I for one would welcome the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to his shrine where I could feel his presence and relive memories of a most iconic entertainer, a musical genius, a true humanitarian, with a heart and a soul, loved by millions. Missing him so very very much. May God bless and comfort the Jackson family. Love always xx

Carrie from SF BAY, CA   August 8th, 2009 10:00 am ET

Jamie, I agree with you when say they are exploting MJ. MJ was this family's meal ticket. Now that he is gone they continue to do so. Jermine should stop this "oh I am continuing the good works of my brother MJ", and get a real job to support his own kids. All the family members except maybe his Mother and Janet are out to continue to make money off Michael period.

Marlene   August 8th, 2009 10:07 am ET

Boy – that Jermaine Jackson is not a really good media manipulator. I'm sure he was told "go on Larry King" and tell them stories about Michael. What outrageous lies. Didn't know about a drug problem. Really? Lies. Lies. Lies. That soft spoken voice and we're all supposed to believe his naiviete. I meant to write in before and say that Micko (or Nicko) Brando was totally non-believable. They didn't want to see any problems. It's all about the money. There's probably more money now than ever, especially without Michael spending it all. May the poor man somehow try to rest in peace, away from his crazy family and "friends".

Brenda   August 8th, 2009 10:28 am ET

hi jermaine jackson

Lora   August 8th, 2009 10:32 am ET

Didn't learn anything new at all except for announcement at end of show. Jermaine did not clarify anything.

Mara   August 8th, 2009 10:38 am ET

mariau ~ thank you for posting the video clip, that is a beautiful thing.

mary v   August 8th, 2009 10:52 am ET

jermaine I do believe you have your brothers memory at heart,but, why is the tribute concert s charity not heal the world foundation? Michael did not look for praise, thanks, gradutude with his humanitarian efforts he just DID He did not give interviews he just DID. He was a humble man,very sincere and truly believed . Now a tribute to jermaine jackson charity? please, be as humble as your brother and honor his lifes work.
Also larry if your wife wants to get her face somewhere in the music industry she should have married a music mogul not a newscaster. Make her co-anchor so she to will get off michaels coattails and steer clear of the jackson family tragedy.

I loved your brother . I have worn an armband to remember starving children ,I believe his music sent a message and he was, for a little while our gift from god. Carry on Jermaine in the same way because our children, before we know it will be our future. Make a change, RIP
MIchael my family will always keep the candle lit for you.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 10:54 am ET

A few thoughts about the interview yesterday. I think Jeremine is a very nice person and very emotional and open.

1. They all have a totally different approach. White Daddy Joe believes he is sure about everything from who is Omer Bhattis dad to who are the bad guys and foul play, Jermaine knows nothin. Havent heard, havent seen and didnt know. And then Katherine makes all decisions. Sometimes I think that the parents prevent their children from growing up by just letting them smile and wave and participate in TV shows but never let them be part of any decisions or inform them about anyhting. I believe that Jermaine knows nothing. He is 53, but he doesnt come across as a middle aged man and when he referes to his mum it is like he is 19 years old.

2. Did you see how they zoomed in Prince while taking about Klein..? 😉

3. I dont understand why the mum doesnt involve the children in the decisions. Can she not accept that they are fully grown men and women? Afte all, the children are the ones that will live with the decisions far longer than she will so it has to work for them as well.

4. It was so good to hear Jermaine laughing again.

mariau   August 8th, 2009 11:05 am ET

i agree and well said

Robin   August 8th, 2009 11:08 am ET

Mariau – Thanks so much for posting! THAT SAYS IT ALL !!!!

Lori Quebec Canada   August 8th, 2009 11:09 am ET

mariau that video you posted from youtube was very nice thank you for posting that....

Robin   August 8th, 2009 11:12 am ET

Jermaine – Thanks so much for sharing with us. It's wonderful to hear from the family directly. The clip of the children was so touching!!!
The story about you singing with Michael made me smile, and cry, all over again. Thank you so much for doing all you can to honor Michael's legacy of love. Thank you!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 11:12 am ET

This can be 1 reason,but if we heared from family in the TV,that Michael had problem with drogs,thann how Jermaine dont know?I just think,he dont want to talk about it infront of the hole world,and i can understand that.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 11:16 am ET

I commend Larry for being respectful to Jermaine and for not asking him any stupid questions, which Jermaine would not have answered anyway. ..

Personally, I dont' think I could watch a performance by the Jackson brothers. The Jacksons without Michael? nah, too painful... at least not yet, maybe some day ...

wenty   August 8th, 2009 11:22 am ET

keep up the good work Larry and Jermain may God bless you and your family..

Lois   August 8th, 2009 11:23 am ET

I agree with you Stu....everybody expects the family to totally open up about their feelings about Michael's abuse of prescription medication.....NOT "DRUGS"....(please people use the right terminology, this is how misinformation spreads.) – how would you like it if people were constantly saying your lying and hiding stuff when you are telling the truth. The family doesn't have to tell us squat, but because MJ had many fans out there, they want to continue MJ's legacy and hope for a better that really so bad?

I guess there are many people out there that don't want a better world....and that is so unbelievably sad....they just wanted to wallow in their negativity.

Jeri   August 8th, 2009 11:24 am ET

To all of the negative people, it is still hard to lose a family member, and the fact that he was an amazing entertainer doens't make the lose any better. And how many people can say they have a perfct family, who knows what went own behind close doors with the family. I am so excited that Jermaine has stepped up to repesent the family. If u are tired of watch the Jackson family then stop looking at it, it is just that simple, I personally enjoy seeing all the old footage of Micheal and his family. And no one is riding his coat tail, just trying to clear his name of all the negative things been said, it is so sameful that people, even in ur death talk so harshly about u, he is gone now so just try and find the good that he done, and if u cant say anything nice then dont say anything at all.

Fred Olenick   August 8th, 2009 11:28 am ET

The American audience absolutely tired of Michael Jackson and all the associated tripe about him. Let him rest in peace.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 11:34 am ET

I see very muche evilness,and i am sory,but the childrens das that too.It is in Human nature.Atlist in big part of humen nature.I think,the family have the wright to keep MJ medication problems for tham selfs.It is privat.Wath we should only knos,if MJ gat murdered,or not...Nothing als is aor bisnis.And we sould know,and remember,how good entertainer he was,and how humanatarian he was.This is all we should know,but the madeia not gonna let it be this whay.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 11:47 am ET

We still don't have the autopsy report, but we do have these 2 facts:

1- Dr Murray admitted administering propofol (or whatever it's called) to Michael the day he died.

2- Toxicology report confirmed Propofol killed Michael.


mariau   August 8th, 2009 12:01 pm ET


good questions

where is Dr. Murray now?

i think in bahamas.. having a great time with ladies.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 12:05 pm ET

I was disppointed to hear that they will use Michael's legacy for their own foundations, LK or Jermain or what ever...

I firmly believe that Michael's work and legacy should go to "HIS" foundations:

"Heal The World" foundation and "Heal The Kids" foundation.

It's about Michael, here


Malaika   August 8th, 2009 12:10 pm ET

Luda... i agree 100% i felt sick wen Larry said his foundation wl benefit.. GOD FORBID!!!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

Suzie,not proponol killed Michael.He gat a shut of som other mix medications after he gat proponol,,and that stoped hes heart.Its not sure,that Murrey was shut the other mix.MJ may be death 4 hours earlier,and possibly Murey was fal a sleap,cos he gat panik houres later,and somebody als was give tha shut of other medications.But Murey shoull be in gail just for illegaly yousing proponol.I dont undertand,why he gat nothing for that.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 12:29 pm ET

Michael's kids are totally adorable, particularly "Blanket". Kline the Swine keeps insinuating he's the biological father of the two oldest ... afraid his 15 min. of fame are up, and would like an extension please .... and maybe a few additional mils pls .... I hope, for these kids' sake that Kline is NOT their biological father.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 12:35 pm ET

Stu, TMZ reported yesterday that the tox report revealed Propofol was what killed Michael.

Jerelyn Savage   August 8th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

I was disappointed with you're interview with Jermaine Jackson. So who is this Omar?? You never asked, so who is his parents? If Michael isn't his Father, who is? If he has been in Michael's life for so long, and at the Memorial, surely that family knows he he is? Who his family is? Jermaine's answer that he has seen pictures of Omar dressing like his brother was so slight! If he has been in his Brother's live FOR YEARS certainly he has been around him more so than just seeing pictures of him. And certainly he knows who his family is, who his Father is, if indeed Jermaine and Michael were so close.

sandy   August 8th, 2009 12:41 pm ET

I watched the show friday night from beginning to end and all the same questions we have had since June 25 have still not been answered. Will we ever know the truth?

How FINE can Michael's mother be?- she just .lost her son!!!!!

I just finished reading a book about Michael Jackson's life and I cried from beginning to end. I am convinced he died from a sad/broken heart and not drugs.. He may have been worth millions maybe billions but I'm convinced money does not buy happiness for sure

I'm just so sorry that three children are left without a father because of his death

RIP Michael Jackson. The world will miss you!!!! ❤

Lilith Work   August 8th, 2009 12:57 pm ET

How can Jermaine say that he knew nothing about Michael's drug use
when it has been reported that his sisters tried to do an intervention with Michael and were not allowed in? Doesn't this family talk to each other?
Stop trying to make a Saint out of Michael – he was a human with all the foibles that entails. I can't believe Jermaine wants to bury Michael at Neverland – he never wanted to go back there and was quoted as saying that. This an attempt to make a shrine out of Neverland and would be used as a money maker – no wonder he cannot convince their mother.

Bella   August 8th, 2009 1:01 pm ET

I just can' t figure out – why did Jermaine take his children to Vienna to receive Michael's award. He should have taken Michael's children. Now don't tell me that he didn't like Michael's children to be exposed, coz they were seen going out to bookstore, and they went to the cinema to see Ice Age also.

I also almost felt off the chair when the long-awaited statement at the end of the interview by Larry that the continuation of Michael's charity legacy has nothing to do with Michael but of Jermaine instead.

NEXT big disappointment: LAPD declares Michael died of drug overdose and nobody is responsible. That will be really THIS IS IT.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:01 pm ET

Jerelyn: If he has been in his Brother’s live FOR YEARS certainly he has been around him more so than just seeing pictures of him...

Isn't it strange that the family doesn't seem to be aware about Michael's private life. I mean, they had never met Debbie Rowe before, she was married to Mike and had his children, odd no?... they don't know who really is Omar... Were they really close to Michael? Or they just pretend so they save face.... They were not their want Mike got married, with Lisa or Debbie... strange relationship no?

Jermain say he never thought of Michael being addicted... when Joe say he tried to convinced Mike to get clean and then clean the house of the vampires... Janet is supposed to have tried to make an intervention and Jermaine seem so naive about all this...
Who's saying the truth? who lies?

That meeting in May with Joe and Rowe... the letter, Dileo said Mike forgot he had signed it... How odd, He wouldn't have forgotten he signed a letter like this... this is so...

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:01 pm ET

Suzie,thats strange,couse TMZ was the one,who said,not proponol killed hem.Hmmm...

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:04 pm ET

why did Jermaine take his children to Vienna to receive Michael’s award. He should have taken Michael’s children.

Bella, good point!

Mona Fredericksburg, Virginia   August 8th, 2009 1:05 pm ET

I don't know what I can say that isn't already being said. I, like so many of Michael's fans, am still in shock over his passing. I feel for his family, his children, his friends that knew him personally and were close to him. I only wish that I had been able to meet him and know him as a person. How great it would have been to hear that infectious laugh in person, see that beautiful smile, talk to him about anything and everything, get into his mind. It is obvious from watching Jermaine on Larry King that his heart is in pain. You can see the pain and hurt on his face when he talks about Michael and when he is watching video clips of his brother. I don't believe Jermaine is riding on Michael's coattails. I think the Jackson family has the RIGHT to memorialize Michael in whatever way they want to. Whether it be to do a concert with all the other Jackson siblings involved or however they choose to do it. I'm sure whatever they choose to do, they will donate proceeds to the charities that Michael supported. And that is how it SHOULD be.

I hope, that at some point in time, EVERYONE that knew Michael personally and knew him well will get together and collaborate on a book. Michael's fans desperately want to know him as a person and would love to see the side of Michael that the public never got to see. It would definitely honor his memory. And they could donate 30% of the proceeds from the sales of the book between all of Michael's charities that he supported.

We can ALL honor Michael and others like him by pledging to be a little kinder, by helping other people when we can, it doesn't take money to do this, sometimes all it takes is to be there to listen to someone in need, to be supportive and help them be strong and help lead them in the right direction. I daresay we ALL know somebody that is going through a difficult time. Take the time to be a friend, offer your support and your strength. There are so many people in this country that have issues; whether it is drugs, alcohol, gambling, depression, poverty.

I am a single mother that lost my job back in January and still have not found another full-time job. I worry at the end of every month about how I am going to pay my rent the following month and keep a roof over my child's head. But, even though I couldn't afford it, I have bought clothes for a friend that had nothing. I have bought food for someone that had no money to buy food. I help other people in whatever way I can.

It is sad that too many people in this country are so apathetic and deaf and blind to other people in need. People can be so SELFISH and GREEDY. As long as their cushy little lives are going the way they want, they could care less about others. I have a major issue with RICH people that do nothing to help someone less fortunate than they are. But, sooner or later their GREED is going to do them in. Michael contributed MILLIONS of dollars to charities. He WAS NOT a selfish person. True he had a lot of materialistic things, he could afford beautiful things for his home, he could afford to have a beautiful home. But he GAVE BACK to others in a BIG way.

And to ALL those mean, disgusting, cruel, heartless people out there that continue to villify Michael and say evil things about him, YOUR day is COMING. YOU are ALL nothing more than messengers of SATAN and continue to do whatever you can to STIR the EVIL pot of IGNORANCE and HATRED. GOD will exact his justice on ALL OF YOU.

He is in a FAR better place than this world. He no longer has to suffer the HURT caused by the evil, ignorant, jealous, prejudiced people that live on this earth that sought and still seek to villify him and speak LIES about him. I don't know how people like THAT can sleep at night. I guess it is because they have no SOUL and no CONSCIENCE.

TO THE ENTIRE JACKSON does not matter that we, Michael's fans, do not know any of you personally. We ALL grieve for your profound loss, we ALL grieve over losing Michael, we all grieve over the injustice of someone taken away far too soon, we all hurt over what could have been if he had been allowed to still be here with us. Michael and I were born 1 year, 4 months and 4 days apart. He in 1958, myself in 1957. I "grew up" with the Jackson 5 and Michael. It matters not that I did not know him personally, he was a part of my life and the vibration of the chords of my heart and soul, just as much a part of my life as my own family. NO ONE will ever be able to fill that VOID. His incredible energy and spirit will ALWAYS continue to crash over my being like a tidal wave. His music and performances will always continue to lift my spirits and will FOREVER continue to take my breath away each and every time I watch his performances. Michael will NEVER be forgotten as long as we ALL continue to hold him close in our hearts and our minds.

We will NEVER let him part, for he is ALWAYS in our hearts.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 1:08 pm ET

Stu, the tox report (according to TMZ) says only two drugs in MJ's system: Propofol and Xanax, but that only Propofol was found in a "lethal" doze. Xanax did not contribute to his death. This, of course, hasn't been confirmed by CNN as far as I know, however, TMZ has proved recently that they are generally better informed re. MJ investigation than CNN is ... sorry CNN!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:10 pm ET

I was just go to TMZ,and i read,the the coroner hasn't even released the autopsy report yet.So,thay say all kinde of bull s....

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 1:11 pm ET


I seriously dont think he knew before. I think he is very naive and think the best of everybody. As he said "it never came to my mind". Probably since they were small their parents have sorted everything out and they were told not to worry and they never did. I ve heard that Jermaine has moved home to his parents again a couple of years ago.

He didnt know the doctor. That means that he has not been to visit his brother for over 2 months or his children been to Michaels house to play as the doctor was there every morning and evening.

I still think it is a family with unusual settings and appaerently they dont share eachothers life or open up to each other.

Ellen Larson   August 8th, 2009 1:11 pm ET

and thank you Mona. THANK YOU for having the words to say that so many of us feel. I am praying for you and that you find a job. And don't let life get you down. We can be good and kind and know that while life at times may seem hard and lonely on earth, we will have great rewards for our kindness in Heaven.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:12 pm ET

Michael was right!

" They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money.....
...You'll do anything for money...
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you..."

"Money" by Michael Jackson

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:15 pm ET

I dont understand,on the top thay say no tox,then down wath you say Suzie.And then why thay said earier.that he had som mix medication... !

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:19 pm ET

Lisa,if thay didnt share with each other,then why La Toya said,MJ was on rehab,and why the family said,that thay was visit MJ without leting hem know,thay are coming,so thay can chak for drogs?

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:19 pm ET

Bella: I also almost felt off the chair when the long-awaited statement at the end of the interview by Larry that the continuation of Michael’s charity legacy has nothing to do with Michael but of Jermaine instead.

So choking!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:21 pm ET

I was finde that strange too,but i didnt know,wath to think about it.Think the way,thay just continjue MJ charety work,or this is wrong,couse this has nothing to doo with MJ.But thay doo and that is good thing,no?

Martine   August 8th, 2009 1:23 pm ET

Kline is too ugly to be the biological father of these kids...sorry to say. Debbie doesn't take care of herself but in her old pictures she was beautiful...Michael's son looks like her. Personally, I believe that those kids's are Michael's biological kids but since I have no proof...But even if they were no his kids, does anybody think that this doc's genes could produce such beautiful kids???? especially Paris! she's gorgeous and striking....Klein should go to the hole where he came from...

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

Stu, Like Michael said: "They're using me..."

It has nothing to do with respect!

since Mike died I took the time to read the lyrics of his songs... there is so much CLUES!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:24 pm ET

But if he realy died by propofol,thann why LAPD dont rest dr Murey?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:28 pm ET

I would love to have hes clothes from the BAD klip.And i love hes belts.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 1:28 pm ET

I think we shouldnt judge jermain for wanting to start this charity work. I think it can be an important part in his mourning process. By doing it he might feel he is continuing michaels legacy and it might feel that he still have spiritual contact with michael.

Everybody knows that a famous person is able to raise much more money and if he, by being Jermain can raise more money to the projects I personally think it is a good thing.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

Lotoya, Jermaine... what have they done?? Nothing, and now they use Mike's death to get attention on themselves...

Micheal was the rock on which those people would lean on...

Janet, she has always been autonomous and she's not using Michael... we don't here about her.... that talks by itself, no?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 1:32 pm ET

This is wath i was thinking.And its not true,that this has nothing to doo with Michael.Michael was,who started it.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:37 pm ET

Thanks Lisa! for the fashion link

Unbelievable! lol

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:39 pm ET

by being Jermain can raise more money to the projects

It's not Jermaine that can raise money it's Michael's name....

Luda   August 8th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

raise more money to the projects I personally think it is a good thing.

It would be a good thing if it was for Michael's foundations... but it's for other foundations....

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 1:47 pm ET


Glad you enjoyed it. I just realized that I used "really" a bit too much in that posting 🙂

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 1:48 pm ET

Luda: I think everybody will know it is michaels name. Who knows Shawn in Austria?

Connie   August 8th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

What about Mj fans in the states ? I think we have been forgotten about only the rich can afford to fly to another country!!! It,s a shame everyone is talking about M.J like they loved him where was the love when he was in trouble. JUST KNOW THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER MICHEAL JACKSON OR JANET JACKSON IN THIS WORLD .I JUST HOPE AND PRAY JANET IS PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS ZOO!!!! AND ALL OF THIS FAKE LOVE!!

NINA YIRDAW   August 8th, 2009 2:12 pm ET


First I would like to express my happiness and congratulate the Jackson family and all Michael's fans on Katherin's victory.

And Larry thank you for having Jermain on your last night show we want to see more people who can talk positive about MJ.

Even before scientists realized the global impact of humankind activities on earth Michael became conscious of it and attempted to breakthrough people's mind. This is the greatest milestone to the world that no individual could imagine. What a bright soul and mind!!!!! And Jermain you came up with impressive idea of spreading out and endure Michael's dream to the next generation. I will pray for you and your supporters to God give you the strength and ambition till you fulfill Michael's dream. This is what we need to make the world a better place as dear Michael said.

gaetonna   August 8th, 2009 2:16 pm ET


Michael was a sweet and kind man this world as been given.Through song and dance and the peace sign he gave-our family loved all the Jacksons. We wish you love and peace forever.
And Michaels children are so beautiful inside and outside.
Thanks, Jemaine for coming forward to sharing Michael stories and continuing his gifts to charities. We prayer for your family and his children. Your mother is beautiful and she deserves the best, we will prayer for her, this is a difficult loss for mothers.
My grandaughter, Jade wore a Michael Jackson pin in her school photographer this year in 1st grade. And has numerous Michael Jackson's cds to sing and dance too. Jade cried when she heard he had passed away-she is 7 years old and loved your baby brother.
Thinking of him makes me cry. I would love to send the photo of Jade with the Michael Jackson pin on to your Mother,she would love it.
Jemaine thank for your total support of your beloved brother. We will miss him forever--sadded

Maybe they feel that US media and press and other authorities have not supported Michael through the years. I know it is a pity for the fans as Michael have tons of fans in Us but I have seen som horible people saying horrible things on TV about Michael even very soon after his death. I saw this bitter grey haird man saying some very harsh words for instance.

But basically I think it is becasue Europe in general and Austria /Switzerland in particular have acknowledged and shwon appricioation through out the year and they feel they want to give something back. It would have been the same for those who plan to go to O2 in London.

Maybe it was that award that Jermaine collected on behalf of Michael that made them decide on the place? As I understoon the award was planned and decided before he died so it was a geniuin price and not something postumt. I think that is a good reason for having it in Europe.

Tessa   August 8th, 2009 2:32 pm ET

I watched Larry King Live last night and happy to see Jermaine picked up his late brother's torch and continue to carry Michael's unfinished mission. I have read in the past Jermaine and Michael have always been very close. It is kind of ironic why Michael's kids didn't accompany Jermaine to Vienna to accept the award...I just saw Jermaine's son and daughter instead.

Lora   August 8th, 2009 2:44 pm ET


Thank u for posting such a wonderful video clip! Gave me shivers.

It took me a long time to get over John Lennon when he will be the same here!!

beth in canada   August 8th, 2009 2:45 pm ET

CNN used to be the hallmark for stellar journalism and hard news reporting. I am so dismayed to see how far this organization has fallen. Larry King used to be a respected interviewer and is now no more than a doddering, farting puppet lobbing softball questions at celebrities and faux-celebrities, Anderson Cooper has become a sidekick for Kelly and a poster child for "what orientation am I?" questions. For Larry King to have his wife performing a duet with Jermaine Jackson, who more delusional than I thought, is like a carnival barker shilling his snakeoil. You say the money is for the Larry King Cardiac 'foundation and it is done on the coattails of Michael Jackson's death. CNN is a waste of time and is more like the old Hard Copy program. I am sadened by the death of integrity and accurate reporting and I am astonished at the number of uneducated and ill informed people who now watch every night to see the lastest Jackson crap and talk to each other on this blog. Good job Larry, well done.

mojgan   August 8th, 2009 2:52 pm ET

i just would like to give my thanks as an always CNN fan and supporter to covering news about MJ and his family. we loved him the whole world loved him and media should respect that. Thanks again to CNN and LKL.

Annie   August 8th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

Michael is best of the best!

brg   August 8th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

Dear Mr. Jackson, thank you so much for your words reminding us about the true humanitarian side of your beloved brother. I have first "met" Jackson 5 as a child – my older brother was a good musician and he brought home a double vinyl "Black Galaxy" of Tamla Motown. Only Jackson 5 had three songs there! And I was bewitched by your cute little brother; well, he was my age ... Michael´s music has accompanied me through my life, it has been always there for me ... and helped me so many times, when I was down but also when I was happy – it made me even happier. ... It´s a strange feeling to realize that there´s no chance to meet him in this world. I still experience a peculiar and painful emptiness. Though I try to persuade myself that it´s time to stop grieving and start celebrating the life of a truly exceptional Man. Maybe now that I know you decided to go on and continue your brother´s work it will help. – I have always appreciated Michael´s talent, a gift by God. The first time I saw him I became lost forever, mesmerized – and still am. However, I have always felt great respect for all the good he was doing, too. He has been a great inspiration for me and helped me make myself a better human. Thank you for everything ... Rest in peace and stay with us forever.

Mara   August 8th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

Hi beth in canada

Obviously you have been spending time on Michael's blogs also as you seem to know that we watch every night to see the latest updates and talk to each other or share our comments and thoughts.

We are not uneducated people we are regular human beings from all over the world, fans who watch a television show that keeps us updated on someone we care about.

There is nothing wrong with that is there? At least we are not out committing crimes...

Lois   August 8th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

Mona of Virginia – very well said.......I too am only 2 1/2 years apart from MJ's age and grew up with the Jackson 5, and then Mike as a solo artist - I could not have said it any better myself. Thank you for those inspiring words.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 3:08 pm ET

Hi Beth in canada

I can tell that you are upset and angry. You are upset over that money goes to Larry Kings Cardiac foundation. I dont know what money you are talking about and whose money you are thinking about but I believe that if you what to continue in the steps of michael working to make this world to a better place raising money to a foundation for research for cardiac would be a good contribution to that, dont you think?

I agree with you about the general media cover on Michaels passing. That is why i think this blog is so good. Here you can escape the sensationalism and talk to people about their memory oof michael. Get ideas about webpages, interviews and stuff.

Sometimes there are articles posted that i think are not so good but what i like with the larry king show is that people are being interviewed. you hear what they are saying. in the papers it is mostly quotes that are misinterpreted and sometimes even not a quote but a creation.

Have a good day!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 3:11 pm ET

Do you guys thin,this news about the autophsy is true?That he died fro propofol,and only Xanax was in hes bload?In USA is any news about this,then what LAPD with dr Murey?But how TMZ could wright this,if the autophsy report is not out yet?

Mara   August 8th, 2009 3:15 pm ET

Stu – I don't know what to believe anymore.

I'm sure when Linda and Jacquelyn log on they will be able to help you with your question.

Lois   August 8th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

Beth in Canada – well since you think we are all ill-informed and uneducated, you must have first hand knowledge of everything that is going on.....please enlighten us??

beth in canada   August 8th, 2009 3:19 pm ET

final comment from me...I am not upset or comments regarding money are based on what Larry announced on his show last night and if you didn't catch that then I have no doubt that you don't know what I'm talking about. I have voiced my opinions about Michael Jackson and his "legacy" or his "mission" and will not bore you with them again. I agree that regular human beings watch the LKL show to get MJ news but I have only seen or responded to this one blog topic on Jermain and his " NEW MISSION" and what my opinion of him is regarding this issue. I don't visit any other MJ sites and only know you fans talk to each here because I read the remarks before posting. And I disagree that you hear what people are saying on LKL because he always interupts before anyone can express a full thought. I"m not angry or upset at anyone personally and I'm done with this topic. Sorry for your loss, all you fans.

Fiona Bossy   August 8th, 2009 3:23 pm ET

Dear Jermaine Jackson and Michael Jackson's fans,
Michael Jackson was tired of being mega infamous. He loved being mega famous but to be mega infamous is another story. The paparazzi never stopped stalking him while the media kept putting more dirt on his reputation by publishing crazy stories about his sex life, his parenting skills, his seemingly declining health, and his past troubles with the law. Michael Jackson craved to live a normal life like everybody else but it was impossible because he was Michael Jackson the world 'strangest man'. What people forgot was that he was a human being and he needed peace of mind to take better care of himself. What Michael Jackson needed was for someone to kidnapp him and place him in an isolated island where he could meditate and reconnect with God. Unfortunately death assumed the role of kidnapper and Michael Jackson is no longer with us.
But I believe that the king of pop is in a better place right now. He is no longer mega infamous, he does not have money so he will not be sued by greddy people, and stardom over there belongs only to those who can handle power. Michael Jackson is working hard on reinstating the beauty of his soul which was affected greatly by the madness of his life here on earth. This is the chance for Michael Jackson to shine in the sky like the star that he really is. And knowing Michael Jackson, he will turn into a Supernova.
Thank you
Fiona Bossy

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 3:25 pm ET

Normally if there are announcement of more substancial sort, or if somebodywants to announce something, they wont do it through tmz 🙂

Luda   August 8th, 2009 3:37 pm ET

Stu, these are still just rumours... there is not OFFICIAL announcement about the autopsy results that have been made.... it is still and always just speculations....

So, We still don't know!

NINA YIRDAW   August 8th, 2009 3:42 pm ET

Dear Mona from Virginia what an outstanding way of expressing your feeling as well as us MJ's fans. God bless you and all MJ's fans. I Love you MJ

Gene   August 8th, 2009 3:52 pm ET

I watched the show last night and was trully touched by Jermaine, the world lost such an important humaniteiran, a man that thought of others above himself, I love the song "Smile", it is my anthem in life, and true to every word. I just hope when Michael is finally laid to rest that the fans, public will respect and honor his memory. I wish Michael would of known that some of us in the world cared as much as he did.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

I applaud Jermaine standing up for his brother. However i was a little unsettled when he stated that Michaels children will not be a Jehovah's Witness. I think that choice should be left to the children. Remember that part of the reason Mrs. Jackson is such a wonderful person, mother and grandmother is due to her faith. I too was raised a Witness and i would not have the loving, caring and respect for others if i had i not had that background. Please let the children make that choice if they so choose. Maybe they too will have the same love for mankind as their father.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 4:17 pm ET


thankd for the clip:-)

Ann   August 8th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

Something abut Jermaine doesn't seem sincere, and he didn't even answer any question pretaining to Michael's death.
Jermaine, in my opinion has always been jealous of Michael's success and how he excelled.

I would love to believe Jermaine when he speaks but it just doesn't seem frank.

Am I alone on this?

Ann   August 8th, 2009 4:19 pm ET

And why isn't the money going to MICHAEL'S Charity "heal the world"?

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 4:34 pm ET


My opinion is that th efather has encouraged competition among the siblings. Maybe as a way to make them work harder. But generally I think there is competition in all families. And probably even more in a big family. But i think that is part of being a sibling and it does not generally mean that there is less love.

Heal the world foundation is sold and not ran by the original people. If you go to the site you will see that a woman is now running it and the structure has changed a bit. I didnt get any satisfying answers from her when mailing. Would be good if more people tried to ask her some good questions.

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 4:36 pm ET

Ann.... you are not alone ... it sucks really the way these pple are ridding on Michael & now Larry & his wife number 8 adding to the long list. God forbid!!!

ANITA HUGHES   August 8th, 2009 4:40 pm ET


Barbara From Uruguay   August 8th, 2009 4:54 pm ET

Dear CNN and Larry King.
I write this letter to give my opinion and share the pain, the sadness and the biggest suffering and lament that i feel for the death of Michael Jackson.
He was unique in everything, in his way to sing, in his way to dance, in his way to compose, in his way to make videos and to make concerts.
Michael was a extraordinary person and wonderful he has an angelical laugh and pure was adorable and elegant.
Nobodys compare with Michael.
Always dream that some day i could meet him, but in one second everything to vanish.
Now the oly dream is that some day i could meet his family or his sons or his sisters.
From 7 years old always want to be a singer or actress, the most that give me happiness and satisfaction is be a singer.
At 10 years old Michael influence on my life pretty much.
I remember when i have 10 and listen the cassettes Dangerous and Bad on my walkman, always i singing and dancing, i watch on concert on tv, and i try to dance like him.
I could feel sad and awful and i listen his music and give me a huge satisfaction and a biggest happiness, and i could imagine on a stage and that some day i will to get make it.
Still i hope to get make it.
Passing 11 years since thatand still i to stay on the same place.
Everything is for the shortage of money, if i to have got the money i could start on my career.
My dream about is to live on EE.UU and be one of the best singers of the world, to sing on English, to meet the biggest of the music, between them was Michael.
Now not any more cant be.
No pass one day in that cant stop of think on him and to cry by hours.
Always i think and say, how they to take off Michael.
Michael not to deserve to end like this.
He has a childhood and a adolescence hard and finish to suffer from the same way that start his career.
And is sad because he was alone without his sons.
And i wonder if ever was in fact real happy?
I would like that he was be a good friend my, i would like make a good song with him, that to help me to compose and maybe make a video, all that the june 25 to go out all illusion.
Now my only illusion is to get my objective to save the money and start my career like singer to can to live on EE.UU to learn to the maximum and sooner or later to can to make a concert tribute, to sing all his songs always with the Jacksons family permission.
I should to start now, i have 21 years old and if i continue waiting i never can to realize my dream and i be a girl that only dream with that.
For me he was a inspiration, a example to follow that nothing is impossible, thanks to him exist MTV, thank to him we to know a new dance step The Moonwalk, we have songs extraordinarys.
Now everytime to listen his songs we cry because remember to Michael.
Michael was a inspiration for all us.
Life to take off too much soon.
He not to deserve.
He was a young man and not to deserve not enjoy a last concert.
I believe that Latoya say is true and i to hope that to find the guiltis and to pay for they do, because is not fair to take off such diamond here in earth, a god, the king of pop and music he is the only.
For that and much more Michael make a lot of absence to all us.
The world to spill his tears, can stop to think about what he to think what to happens in that last moments.
Michael make a lot of absence to all and more to those who to know and much more to his sons.
That are three childs that to be left without his father.
I go to sleep to listen his music and to awake from the same way so at the time i imagine that if i to suffer and cant stop to cry i imagine as could to be his sons and his family.
I want be a singer because i love to sing and make me feel alive.
Now i to wish more i to want that all us to have Michael with us always.
His body not any more to be between us but his soul still is between us and whereas listen his music and to remind of when he was alive his soul always to be with us.
We not must to let to die his legacy his music.
What i feel by Michael the must feel so many people around the world.
Some day i will go to Forest Lawn to say thank you Michael for be such huge inspiration and a example to follow.
My objective is be a singer to complete my dream and always to remind to the fans and new generations that was a man who change the history of the music, of the dance and of the videos, THE KING OF POP, THE KING OF MUSIC AND OF DANCE, THE KING FOR ALL TIMES AND THAT ALWAYS WILL BE!!!!!!!
Always you are in my heart and in my mind Michael.
I to wish to be dead, i not you Michael.
And if is the gods will and i to begin my career always i to make that you to have got present and like this you music, you glorious career and you soul not stay in vain.
And remember as long as living his music never we to let that the king be to forget.
Thank you Michael.
My name is Barbara im from Uruguay.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 4:56 pm ET

Welcome Lisa S !

Luda   August 8th, 2009 4:59 pm ET

Ann, it's exactly what I'm trying to say here in my comments since last night!

sussie   August 8th, 2009 5:06 pm ET


I am very happy about Michael´s brother´s commets.
He was very good for our world.
Since his death I have learnt a lot about Michael´s life, so I really wish he had been happy during life.
Certainly, Michael has a nice place up there.

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 5:13 pm ET

im official leaving this blog.... im doing this in respect for THE KING, i cnt be here wr CNN & Larry seem to love & enjoy exploiting my KING. KEEP THE FAITH MJ-MEGA-FANS!!!!

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

i meant to say " officially" 🙂

gloria   August 8th, 2009 5:34 pm ET

Thank, Luda for the link to the DiLeo interview. I find it strange that both Frank DiLeo and Joe Jackson say that "a fan" called them to inform them that MJ was ill. I read somewhere that MJ himself called Frank DiLeo and DiLeo then called Murray. Another discrepancy....
Wish someone would do a cell phone dump on DiLeo and JJ phones... how do "fans" have their phone numbers in the first place?
Just curioius.

Lisa S   August 8th, 2009 5:42 pm ET


well, as odd as it seems, Joe Jackson has a 34 years old daughter with one "fan" . That is I guess, as close as it gets...

Luda   August 8th, 2009 5:44 pm ET

Ann: I would love to believe Jermaine when he speaks but it just doesn’t seem frank.
Am I alone on this?

You know Ann, I have the feeling Jermaine is trying to imitate his brother...
Like if he had always admired him and try to be like him, fellowing his footsteps, like being sweet, kind and the charity work and... but... it just doens't work cause....

Micheal was unique...

And there's something naïve about Jermaine that I don't get.
Michael was sweet but not naive...

Luda   August 8th, 2009 5:47 pm ET

Lisa, who's that 34 years old daugther you talk about?

Janet, as I know, is the youngest and she's 43 years old...

Luda   August 8th, 2009 5:51 pm ET

Gloria: I read somewhere that MJ himself called Frank DiLeo and DiLeo then called Murray. Another discrepancy….

Yeah, I read that too, I thought it was odd...
Then Delio on LKL said after he told Katherine in the hospital, he called Joe to tell him that Micheal was dead but Joe already knew.


kathy kassover   August 8th, 2009 5:53 pm ET

yes that is what michael jackson was about his brother said it all he was and is still the best and will be missed alot the world lost the best person there is

Luda   August 8th, 2009 5:55 pm ET

Dileo said: " I have to make sure the estate understands some of the things that I know. I’ve been appointed to the board of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. So I have a role to play there. Michael wrote the letter getting me appointed. After they removed Dr. Thome, they added myself and Joel Katz.'

Remember how Mike would call a friend to say: They want my catalogue.....

Robert Johnson   August 8th, 2009 5:56 pm ET

Mission for Jermain is explorit, take advanatage of being Michale"s brother, more interviews, records coming out, maybe a tour, and on the line Joe Jackson and the rest to explorit Michale to their advantage.

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 6:00 pm ET

Larry – Looking forward to watching an interview with Katherine Jackson.

destiny   August 8th, 2009 6:00 pm ET

okay, i've read all of the comments and this is how i feel. yeah most of the media has ceased coverage and i do think that michael should be buried by now. but i dont think that people should start making rude comments and saying that jermaine and the rest of the jackson family are riding michael tail because they are just trying to keep michael's legacy i will also try to keep michael's legacy going by listening to his music and sharing the morals in his songs with my friends and family. R.I.P michael jackson and much love to the jackson family.!

Debbie   August 8th, 2009 6:05 pm ET

My comment is about the interview with Jermaine Jackson. I think he has a very good heart and people should follow his example about the death of his brother. He doesn't blame anyone and won't until they find out what actually caused Michael's death. Jermaine had nothing bad to say about anyone and for that he should be commended.My heart and prayers go out to the Jackson family and for Michael's three children. I ,too, miss Michael but...what I feel doesn't compare to what his family is going through. Be strong Jermaine!!

Allison   August 8th, 2009 6:19 pm ET

You are still smiling Jermaine, even though your heart is aching. God Bless

B.H.   August 8th, 2009 6:23 pm ET

I felt so sad to hear Jermaine say that Michael took his good deeds
with him and because of all the good things he did for others, he
was surely in heaven. The Bible teaches that none of us can
enter heaven apart from knowing Christ as Savior. All of us have
sin that keeps us apart from God. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 –
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God". The
Bible says in Romans 6:23 that the payment for sin (which we all have) is death (not doing good works); but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God didn't just leave us to wonder what would happen to us. He died for our sins on the cross, so that
we would have a way to heaven to be with Him. God gives us the gift of eternal life when we accept Christ as Savior. Jesus said,
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes unto God except
by me." – John 14:6. Also in the book of I John, chapter 5, verse 12
it says, "He who has the Son has life, and he who does not have the
Son (meaning Jesus) does not have life". Good works don't ensure
that someone will be in heaven. As Jesus also said, you must be
born again through faith in Christ. That's the sad thing about
following a false religion – they don't point you to the only One who
can save you for eternity.

Mariau: thanks a lot for sharing this precious clip. Can you tell me where you found it? MJ Love you!!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 6:41 pm ET

Thank you for the unsvers!I was hope so,that this is not the final tox report.Now i will read the left of the blog ,and woch this video.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 6:46 pm ET

Hey you guys
Go to the " Michael jackson, brand" blog at the end and PLEASE tell me it is a sick joke and that baby is not reading these blogs!!

Pikerover   August 8th, 2009 6:58 pm ET

I'm so tired of MJ. When his family comes clean with his drugs and strange behavior maybe i will pay attention to it. Jackson was a strange man with a huge talent. As for the kids, Jermaine take a look at them. I see nothing Jackson about them.

Sh eletta   August 8th, 2009 7:05 pm ET

These comments that I am responding too regaining Jermaine Jackson Blog:

Commenters: Carol, Liane and Cyndi D. Your comments where well put. I am guilty for making judgement on Dr Murray, before the verdict is in. But, from what I've read and hear on the news, some us MJ fans cannot help how we feel about this matter. But you are right that we should wait before stating or pointing fingers at anyone and for that I appolize.

Suki1804: Maybe Jermaine are doing different charities, because if you have kept up with MJ estate, his charties (which are unname to the public right now) will received 10% of his estate, So, maybe that could be why Jermaine did not name any charities that are under Michael's network. Maybe, he will like to follow his brother's footsteps and sponsor his own charities in his name and Larry kings.

Diane: Why must you keep calling Michael an addicted? Yes, he admitted that he was addicted to painkillers back in the early 90's, which he seek help for. Now, since his death the media's insisist that he had an addiction, too me a person with a addiction as I keep stating does not care about others on themselves. People with addictions does not donate, or visit medical, or cancer centers to give love or help where it is needed. Addictes only look for the next high, and in my eyes and heart I do not see Michael as that type of person.

Micheal had a beautiful heart when it came to children and others, in spike of so bad name calling (which I know hurted), he continue to do good, with the help of Our Savior Jesus Christ that gave him the strength to carry on even when some of us left him because of all the negative media news that was paster all around the world, but he never stop being Michael Jackson and doing what Michael Jackson does best, bringing into our lives his voice of reason, music, and videos, that brought a message into our lives. So, all I am saying if his brother did not see his younger brother as an addiicted (which I am sure he seem more of Michael then the public/fans did), then if you where not there to see him with take all this painkillers, you really cannot say he was an addict or addiction.

Lee: Amen. I could not had say it better, especially with one of my favorite chapter's in the bible.

Juliet: You are so true. I always, defend Michael to people who has negative things to say. My theory is this if you are not there to see it with your own eyes, how can you know this? The media alway, looking for dirt and not interested in the good a person does. So, I really like your comment.

Sum it all up: From just listening to Jermaine yesterday on the Larry King show, you can tell they are a close net family , even in the up and downs that happen between sibling and even parents. I have three sisters, I am the oldest of the four, we have disagreement's with each other all the time, what most fell to realize is that we all have different personalities that clashes, and even so we are a very close net family. Not many friends, because we have each other. This is what I got out of Jermaine's interview, with Mrs Jackson being the stronge backbone of the family. Mrs Jackson, to me get's the Greatest Respect, and what ever she decides we should as fans be happy with it. Maybe, she considering what Michael's children would want their father to be bury at.

Maybe I could be wrong about what I about to say, but here goes. Michael became very unhappy with Neverland , when the Police invaded his home and made it seem dirty. If everyone remember after the trail in 2005 was over Michael never went back to the Neverland he felt it was not his home anymore, so this may be what Mrs Jackson is thinking about. I would be happy where ever he put's his finally rest place, because his body may be here, his spirit is with GOD, in the gates of heaven. A place where there
is no sorrow, no bills, no gossip, no name calling. He is looking down on his family, children and maybe his true fans too. Be happy for the Jackson Family, that are trying to continue to do what Michael started.

We should take a stand also, and give some of our time to charities, or help where it is needed.

Rest in peace Michael, you have truley earn it.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:16 pm ET

Luda,so,he was in rehab,how La Toya said...The family knew...

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:22 pm ET

This humen beat box is funn.Whenn i was in high scoul,there was a band in my scoul,and thay was play this kinde of things,but wath MJ doo is unbeliveble.He doo everything milion times bether,like other peaples.

NINA YIRDAW   August 8th, 2009 7:27 pm ET

Toni: I think someone is using this beautiful princes name. This is a sick joke

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:28 pm ET

Stu, Hungary
Either someone is playing a sick joke, or Paris Jackson was on the
LA Times: Deals details Michael jackson, the brand" blog. Go check. Its at the end. I dont know who to contact to check it out. PLEASE dont tell me she was reading these blogs!!!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:29 pm ET

Toni,what sick joke?I dont see nothing.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:31 pm ET

Nina, I hope your right,but they should still check it out. it WAS the only blog that actually had his full name on it, so of course thats the one she would go to.
There was a statement made that Prince and Paris were banned from the internet.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 7:32 pm ET

Stu, The family knew. Yes, I believe so.... But you know, Mike had admitted it in the pass, in the 90's, then he went to rehab at that time... Now did he got back to it... When? after what MJ answered Dileo when Dileo asked if the rumour was true that he had to go back in rehab...Dileo said Mike got very indignant. This was in March... may be in march he was not back yet in pills, I don't know... something happened in the last months....
But what????
One thing is sure, is that from the first autopsy report: he is not suppose to be dead! He should be here!

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:33 pm ET

Stu, Its at the end of that blog!

arizona girl   August 8th, 2009 7:37 pm ET

I just watched your interview with Jermain Jackson. I love listening to him and giving all the facts about his brother. People would of not believed any of this while Michael was alive and that makes me so sad. I miss him so much.I downloaded so many songs from michael on itunes some of which i have never heard and i cannot get enough of listening to them such as "Lady in my life" and "Butterfly`s". WOW what great songs. Michael , I want you back.....

Luda   August 8th, 2009 7:40 pm ET

By the way, her name is not Paris Michael but Paris Katherine.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:45 pm ET

I really hope so. But what I worry about is, why would this person go to an older blog that not too many people were on anymore, and it was the only blog with his full name on it. I had heard too that both Prince and Paris were banned from the internet, but that doesnt mean she didnt sneak on. That takes a pretty sick person to do that. I completely flipped out when I saw it. I went right into panic mode. 😛

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:48 pm ET

I think so too,its just som idiot.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:50 pm ET

It's Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. They all have Michael in their names. But if you notice, they spelled Micheal instead of Michael. So God what a sick person.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:52 pm ET

Where is everybody? I guess the best is here! 😀

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:54 pm ET

What time is it in Hungary?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:55 pm ET

I am here.I just cant finde that blog 🙂 I only finde the report,but not the blog.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:55 pm ET

I am hungarian,but i live in Iceland,and its 23:55 now

Toni   August 8th, 2009 7:58 pm ET

Where did you all go? I didnt mean to scare you away. 😦

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 7:59 pm ET

I cant belive,that stupid autophsy report never gonna be rady!And i cant belive,that the police didnt rest anybody yet.If this is true,,and MJ body was perfectly good,and he wouldnt die,than wath tha stupid LAPD is dooing?

arizona girl   August 8th, 2009 7:59 pm ET

THank you for posting the you tube of Michael Jacksson an instrument of nature, It was beautiful.....

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:00 pm ET

It's so late in Iceland?
for me it's 20:00

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:01 pm ET

Are you talking about the ...................... blog ? I dont want to put her name on anymore.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:02 pm ET

I am here,but my 8 years old son is a wake yet,couse in Iceland in the summer we have no night.I meen no dark.Now is starting to be normal again,but we gat yous to be a vake this time,and i should push hem som how to sleap 😕

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:03 pm ET

Yes,4 houres diferent,and in Hungari now is 02:03

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:04 pm ET

If his organs were in that good of shape, then there is NOWAY he was on that many drugs. His liver would have been fried!!!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:04 pm ET

Yes,i was talking about that blog,but dont mether...Jus live it!

Mara   August 8th, 2009 8:04 pm ET

Gee I got kicked out of the Colin Powell blog for talking to Toni about the situation at hand. Gee..

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:05 pm ET

I have no idea!I know,the alkoholiks liver gat fu..d,but i dont know wat xanax and propofol doo.I think,Xanax do nothing.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:06 pm ET

Stu, I believe the autopsy report is ready, but I think they must push the investigation further before they make any announcement...
I said it before: I think the story they found is not the one they thought it was... and more they find clues, more questions they have....
It's not a natural death.
I think they have to investigate a lot of people.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:07 pm ET

Remember all the talk of so many drugs and overdose etc. And Latoya said we would be shocked?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:08 pm ET

So,we just have to wait,and see whats happening.Its can take monts or years.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:09 pm ET

Will you guys tell me what blog you are going to be on – I keep getting lost!

Did you see the video where Mark Lester is now saying he is Paris' bio dad?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:11 pm ET

Here is 1 word,there is 1 wrd,some of tham oposit to each other,and we try to make a picture out if them.Its inpossible!Maybe aor speklations are totaly diferent from the reality.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:12 pm ET

I am only here,so tell me,where are you guys.

Lori,i didnt see.Who the hell is Mark Lester.How many peaples are MJ childrens bio. fathers? 🙂 Crasy....

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:13 pm ET

Stu, I believe they will make an announcement in a few days or weeks but it won't be definitive. The investigation will continue and we will still here about it in a year.
Like for Anna Nicole Smith. She died a year ago and they charged people last march.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:13 pm ET

Mara, Are you freaking serious? They dont even care if it was his 11 yr old daughter? Pretty freakin heartless people.

I think xanax is for anxiety. Which maybe he used to calm down after rehearsal, and later did the diprivan. But , I agree that I think they thought they were going to find a crap load of meds in his body. Im still wondering about the 5 fresh neck injections.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:14 pm ET

Toni,1 thing was very strange for me in this interwu,that Jermaine was try to not to talk bad aboud AEG.Maybe now the investigation in totaly diferent whay.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:16 pm ET

Mark Lester is a former child star. He was in Oliver. MJ is godfather to all 3 of his children. Lester says his daughter and Paris look similar.

Margaret Kivumbi   August 8th, 2009 8:16 pm ET

Thumbs up young Cassandra for that beautiful poem! It is amazing that young as you are came up with the words of wisdom regarding what is being said about MJ! "Forgive, forget and move on! MJ never told anyone that he was a "angelic spiritual being" from heaven! He was human just like any one else, however he had that special gift that touched the world!! Again, thank you so much Cassandra for that priceless piece!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:16 pm ET

Yes,Luda,i toughd so!This is a very complicated case,it can take even few years.But i am very curios,wath is the autophsy report,and whenn is out,will hapening something,or not.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:18 pm ET

Twist Oliver?Or wath Oliver?That is a very ol muvie,that guy is under 80 years?

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:19 pm ET

Also I saw a transcript on the net of an interview that Frank DiLeo gave another network that was almost exactly like the one on LKL.

One thing I thought was amazing was that Frank said that MJ weighed 145! That 112 was ridiculous. But in all the pictures MJ looks so thin. Like that one of him shopping and he is wearing that green jacket and it is just huge on him

Melissa from NYC   August 8th, 2009 8:19 pm ET

Jermaine very well spoken and appreciated. It is very comforting to know that you are speaking on behalf of tyou the family. My only wonder is if you all were so close, why is it that no one but your mom, Michael's kids, and Diana Ross in his will? That will speaks volumes.

In my personal opinion Michael was a true musical genious that will forever be remembered for each and every song, performance, charities he so generously was involved in, as well as a devoted loving father. His memory, his legacy will forever live on, as the negative press, etc of him will fade.

In closing, Katherine since it is all up to you, would you kindly give the man the dignity already and bury him? Sitting on ice for a month already, I think someone can arrange final resting place arrangements.

Good luck and God Bless you Michael, your children and those you left behind. Gone too soon.

With much love,

Serious Toni go look but whatever she is not worth responding to.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:20 pm ET

I think these sickos are saying they are the fathers ONLY because they want to know if Michael is the Bio dad. They know if they push it , The judge will order a dna. THAT is the only reason. He knows he isnt the father. And I hope the judge and Katherine refuse it. If the kids want to know in the future, then they can decide to do it. I am so tired of all this DNA Bio dad crap. MICHAEL IS THEIR DAD!!!!!!!

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:21 pm ET

It was a stage play, I beleive and Lester was one of the child actors. It was in one of the UK publications. Just google....

Toni NOW where'd you go??

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:22 pm ET

Who's Mark Lester?

It is a shame to see all those people pretending to be the children's father.
OMG, those People are insane.
Do they hope to have a part of the estate?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:24 pm ET

Xanax is just a sedative.You can by it with recept.My father,my muther,may father ex girlfriendes was all take it.If you take 1-2,its just make you com.If you take 30-40,you are off the world.My father ex was takeing 30-40 with alkohol.Now,thann she was totaly out.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:26 pm ET

So Mark lester pretend he had sex with Debbie Rowe! LOL

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:26 pm ET

Why would the judge order DNA?Its dont mether,who is the bio father!The legal father was MJ,and thets the only legal wright for the kids.Donor is just donor with no wrights.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:27 pm ET

Ahh,Luda,Ojjjjjj!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀

Linda, Denmark   August 8th, 2009 8:28 pm ET


Thankyou for your sincere interview. God pless you and your family, and especially Michaels children. What a great mission for you to carry on, where Michael left. You have really touched my heart, from the first time I saw you, the day Michael died. My heart goes out to you and your family.
I myself, have been very much involved in helping people, mostly people with cancer and I feel I am making a diffrence every day. It's amazing what you get back from helping others, it is truly very giving.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:28 pm ET

More those people pretend to be the children's father, more I'm convinced Michael is the father!! LOL

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:32 pm ET

Stu, so it is possible to take 30 or 40 of that drug.... it's not that odd like people were saying?
I don't know that drug.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:32 pm ET

Yes,thats obvious.Cant be,just 1 father.But for me ectualy speachely the girl is very similar with Klein.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:34 pm ET

Yes its possible,and my father ex was not 100% off from it.She olmost couldnt taIlk,but she could say,if something was inportant.In the end she killed her self.

NINA YIRDAW   August 8th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

Actually watching LKL last night show interview with Jermain build the faith I have in Jackson’s family. Jermain’s personality, his politness, even with broken heart he was still respectful and loving to the public and for MJ’s fan which briefly highlight how the Jackson kids were raised. They all are disciplined and gracious. God bless the Jacksons . Love you MJ!!!

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

Im here Lori. 😀

Mara, couldnt contain myself, but I was cicvil...I think. :~

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:37 pm ET

I dont know,how this propofol can demage the organs.I never heared something,like this,to be adictid to az anestezik stoff.I just know,i had friendes on a psihiatrik part of the hospital,and every nurce was addictid to Xanax,demerol and this kinde of things.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:38 pm ET

was amazing was that Frank said that MJ weighed 145! That 112 was ridiculous.

I saw a video of Michael from 2003 honouring James Brown on youtube and we see that he was bigger and in better shape. It's obvious

NINA YIRDAW   August 8th, 2009 8:38 pm ET

And all of MJ’s fans thank you for sharing these beautiful clips with others. Some of them made me so jealous. I wish I had the chance to meet Michael in person, to touch him, to get closer to him and to be on his live concerts and be one of his fans. He was a miracle boy that his parents blessed with. I LOVE YOU MICHAEL!!!!!!!!! However, I am still grateful that I have his CDs and DVDs. And I can't wait to be in one of his concerts to be hosted to celebrate MJ's legacy. Michael you were an angel!!!!!

TJ   August 8th, 2009 8:39 pm ET

Just watched Entertainment Tonite and the male host (I think his name is Kevin Frazier) stated it would be very difficult to perform a third autopsy on Michael because his body had been cut up and sliced after the two performed autopsies. If Katherine Jackson wants a third autopsy on her late son, I hope it could be done, find out what happened to Michael Jackson, have closure, and have him buried in his final resting place. It was reported that Michael will be buried in an unmarked grave at Forest Lawn Cemetery in LA instead at Neverland. It would have been nice if he was buried at Neverland above ground grave with a little statue on top with him dancing on his tippy toes. He would have been safe there because there is security with the giant iron front gates compared to the wide open spaces of Forest Lawn Cemetery.

I still feel very bad that the world lost Michael at a young age while his mean Papa Joe still alive and kicking and still talking up a storm on interviews. We certainly lost a fine entertainer.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

You know, I think Debbie Rowe better come out and set the record straight, because all these men saying their the daddy's isnt making her look to good....if you know what I mean. 😛

And Debbies friend already said they were 100% Michaels. I still just think these guys are just nosy and think Michael was gay, and thisis the only way for them to find out. Good friends, huh?

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

Stu, but it"s terrible! Killed herself....
So Michael.... was in deep trouble if it's true he had so much...

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:43 pm ET

Hmmm,145 phaund?Kg is about half?Becouse thay wright diferent weigheds in diferent hungarian pages,and i dont know,now what is the true.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:44 pm ET

But if he had so much drugs his organs should have been affected... they were OK......

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:44 pm ET

Yes.She had a 9 years old doughter,and she jumped out of the 8 flour.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 8:45 pm ET

Hi everybody?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

For me was very strange,that she killed her self,couse i never have see anything wrong with her.She tuk the pills,whenn she didnt need to go out.Only my father see her this whay at home.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

Did I just read something about Mark Lester? What is that about?

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

8 floor!!!!!
Good Lord!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:47 pm ET

I dont think,my father ax had demaged organx by Xanax.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

Its not like alkohol

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:49 pm ET

Hi Linda!

Lester? another one who says he is the father's children.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:50 pm ET

Mark Lester is claiming he may be Paris' bio dad. There is a video interview of it.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:50 pm ET

Thay should make a club.An MJ childrens father club.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:51 pm ET

No – just Paris. LEster says his daughter looks like Paris. Wasn't MJ and Lester friends forever?

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

Haven't heard that-this is getting really weird–I know he and Michael were friends–but Paris' father? Do you think that maybe he is doing it to make Arnie Klein look stupid.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 8:53 pm ET

TMZ has it now.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 8:54 pm ET

Stu, but Michael was not taking just xanax. from what they say he was having alot of stuff... so... his organs should show something...

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

Lori what article did you post with pictures–is it in our blog

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Questions,wath that medication things doo to the organs.Thann why he was look so old,that the ambulance didnt realisaid,that it was MJ?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 8:59 pm ET

Or this horrible Murey was make hem again addictid for some things,and maybe that was hes job,how we originaly thoughed,couse of the insurance.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 9:00 pm ET

I think that just about every other day or so someone unexpected pops up with some kind of a story. It's all so bizarre it almost seems fake, know what I mean? Michael should have just married me, his life would have been a lot easier all around.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:00 pm ET

Stu, remember that last photo of Mike on the stretcher... he didn't look old...

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:00 pm ET

Ohh,its 1 oclock.I think,i have to say good night.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

Yes,i was think,the same thing.On that foto you can realy see,it was MJ.How the ambulance couldnt see it?

Toni   August 8th, 2009 9:02 pm ET

Hi Linda. 😀
So you heard about the new daddy? Debbie's getting around, aye? I think she better come out and say something cause its sure not looking to good for her!!!All i can say is, if there is ever a dna before the kids actually ask for one, and these children are taken away from the Jacksons and are claimed anything other than Michaels children....I will NEVER forgive that person. That information went with Michael to his grave and thats where it should stay!!!
I Just Gotta Breath......................................

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:04 pm ET

Stu, Last night, actor Jeff Conaway who was once addicted said On Entertainment Tonight, that those Doctors "feeling good" are in reality pushers....

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:06 pm ET

Toniiiiiiiiiiiii,dont panik!This ones only donors.The Legal father is MJ!Tha kids born in tham merlrid time.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

I don't know if Neverland would be that great of a resting place for Michael, after The raid he said that he would never go back. Let me get something straight, it will just be an unmarked grave–no guards no nothing.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

Luda,so thay lied?

Toni   August 8th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Lori, then where would Lionel go?

And I was in healthcare. And if Michael was taking that much medication,especially meds that filtered through the liver, after all these years that he supposedly had this dependency, his organs would definately show signs. They would not look healthy. So if his organs did look healthy, then I guess its safe to say the 15 minute famers are all full of crap!!!

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

What,no guards?But its gonna be easy to finde out,wich grave is hes.

lex   August 8th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

hey peeps

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

I just saw that earlier with Jeff Conaway-He also said how you go to them for one thing and they ask you do you need anything else-and tthat they all want to be stars–they take pictures for the wall in their offices–Jeff Conaway also said that it is a network of doctors

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Some of you have expressed concern that Paris may have been reading the posts on another one of these blogs. Don't worry, it's not Paris, it's a cruel joker. Notice how the word "Daddy" is in quotation marks ... it's someone making fun of the fact that MJ is not her biological father ... but I'm sure you already know this ...

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

OH–and he also mentioned that same drug–Oxicotin--somehting like that-that's demerol right?

Lori   August 8th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

I think anyone can say anything – I just think that it is shocking that 2 of MJ's long term friends are making moves to be the daddy. But I don't think it will matter because MJ is the legal father and there is no way they can force the kids to take a DNA test, so I just do not see the point of these characters coming forward now. It's like they are all trying to outdo the other. It's like everything is fake. I am not sure there is anyone of these characters that are beleivable. And even Dr. Murray is like the invisible man....

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

Stu, who lied?

Conaway, said it is sure that everybody was enabling Michael... he say for money and prestige...
he said those doctors want to be stars...

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Ah,i am so stupid!I know now,what topic is that 🙂

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

Stu–If it is an unmarked grave, I'm assuming there will be no guards, because if there are guards then people might get suspicious. I don't know what the family's plan is. The media is reporting all sorts of gargage.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I meen,about that,MJ was look so old,thay didnt see,it was hem.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

Linda, in my book those people are not doctors they're crooksters...

Niura Schwartz   August 8th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

I believe I know why Jermaine wants to do The Tribute to Michael In Vienna -Austria, he was there last month as we all know and he will profit more with the Europeans, he already cut a deal for a CD with Larry's wife and only the rich can go to Austria for one night show.
Jermaine was always in Michael's shadow no wonder the tape was erased. I s unbelivable how naive you people can be! Don't you see?They are annoucing private parties for the "Special Fans" Is not about Michael is about The Jacksons . They were not even in touch with Michael anymore, Michael was given his life to AEG rehersing a lot to do the performance of his life, and before Michael moved back to LA he was in Las Vegas in another rental home and before that he was in Bahrain in the Middle East oh! and he was in Ireland briefly ! And was looking forward to be in England for at least 9 months. And the reason Jermaine doens't know nothing about Michael's problems with prescribing medications is very simple: He cannot talk about, because the insurance that was made for Michael with AEG is very clear they only cashed for death by natural causes but they don't cash for death with illicit drugs involved. So, maybe that's why we have a long silence right now from everybody including the LA Police! Well, that's my opinion. I only feel for Michael bcause he was very happy about his coming back . And I was too. Maybe I could see him once again! Thank you.

lex   August 8th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

i believe michael took painkillers and anxiety pills n watevr but he didnt die of an o.d nor was he this big drug addict b/c most of america r addicted 2 prescription drugs thn...the media needs 2 find someone else 2 harrass michael is dead and thr still messing wit him

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

DAVE   August 8th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

The family is going to use him even more now that he is dead. They are trying to make him into a figure larger than life like was done with Elvis. There are also trying to make huge amounts of money.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Yes,but in this Forest lon,or what its call,there is som part full of cameras and guards.Not only for MJ,No?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

But why the dr-s from the ambulance would lie?

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

😀 Lori! This is goood!

Lori   August 8th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Well the job of the estate administrators is to make a HUGE amount of money. The are supposed to identify, preserve, and increase the assets.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

i can't believe all this crap-you know what–Please don't hate me–but as much as I loved Michael I have to say this–Michael was too trusting-What the hell was his thinking–I just don't get it-How can you trust all these people and think that they are your friends–I can count my good friends on one hand. Arnie Klein, Mark Lester, who's next ? Corey Feldman–give me a break-I'm just getting really sick of all this s--t. All of these people need to just go away. I hope to god that they don't put the kids throught this DNA bull.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

private parties for the “Special Fans” !!!!

Hummm... don't sound good....
it confirms what I think.....

"Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil

By M Jackson

Toni   August 8th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

I think Neverland would be great, but..............only if is restored to its beauty and is NOT made public. I really feel that Michael wanted to leave Neverland after the raid and I know he said he did not want to return. But I think he never wanted to give it up, or he would not have kept part ownership. The man that bought the other shares was a friend that did not want Michael to lose it. It was Michael that kept it from forclosure in the 11th hour. Why would he do that. And I can still see the smile on his face when he came out of the courthouse.
If it was restored to its beauty and kept completely away from the public and made a private residence for the children and their dad, that he could rest there. He could have security and the children would be able to visit their dad in private . Mrs Jackson did make a statement that she would consider burying him there, IF it was given ,entirely, back to the children. I feel that he didnt want to let it go, but wasnt sure what to do with it. Im sure he shielded the children from the raid, so to them Neverland is probably only happy memories with their dad. I think its what they make out of Neverland that is the problem. It should be kept a private residence, and have a meuseum or something somewhere else for the public to visit. Just my opinin. 😀
Ill shut up now.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Lori, You are right; He can do that all by himself

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Stu, well maybe they don't lie but something doesn't work.....No?
You saw the photo?
We ricognize MJ.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

You're right Debbie Rowe better come out and say something or else all these loosers will not stop. Mark Lester? He is trying to get some publicity–trying to revive his career?

lex   August 8th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Michael didn't wnt to be buried. He wanted to live forever.

Stu,Hungary   August 8th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Now MJ was sell Neverland or not?

Lori   August 8th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

There were so many sides to Michael – are we sure he wasn't twins?

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

The family is going to use him even more now that he is dead

And Dileo in the interview said: "He (MJ) wanted to be loved as a son, not a commodity. "

Commodity... it's seems it's what some of them do...

Lori   August 8th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I think LArry is only repeating the questions that people on the blogs are asking

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

Linda, I don't think he would all trust them... remember they said MJ kept fired people... he tried to find honest people but just couldn't, fired them then tried again to trust... fired them...

In the song : "This time around" Mike says:

Listen, I've got problems of my own
Flashin' cameras, taps on my phone
Even in my home I ain't safe as I should be
Things always missin'
Maybe it could be my friends
They ain't friends if they robbin' me
Stoppin' me from makin' a profit, see
Apology shallow like the ocean
I guess I'll resort to gun totin'
If I was dead broke and smokin'
I'd probably be by my lonesome....

MJ never wntd 2 go back 2 neverland, why wld any1 wnt him buried thr wen he said he never wntd 2 go back thr? it makes me sick wen all they think abt is money, why cnt they think of MJ & hw he felt abt that place, it sucks!!!

Toni   August 8th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

I agree 100%. The real friends Michael had arent feeding the media. And I know they are probably in close contact with the family. Like Miko, I think he and Michael had been friends forever. But Miko probably hadnt seen him for awhile. Some of my best friends and I go 1-2 years without physically seeing each other, so it is possible he hadnt seen Michael in awhile. He had been a Bahrain, and moving around, then busy with this tour. Same with family members. I only get to see my sister 1or2 times a year. And I have no clue what she does on a daily basis, But I still love her. And I had heard Janet say once that the siblings didnt visit each others homes. They would all meet at Hayvenhurst. Some people are saying that the family didnt know about his drug dependency, but if they would only see him when he and the kids came to the family home, then how WOULD they know.
And I dont know about the paramedics not knowing it was Michael, except remember he could have been dead already 4 or more hours. That would explain the really white skin tone.

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

thr is no justice on earth, nothing watsoeva! MJ is gone & nobody cares! shame on LAPD, thr is overwhelming evidence against AEG, SONY, MURRAY, KLIEN & crew but their all free, WHY in the name of GOD???

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Toni: I agree with you about Neverland
I was always against Michael being laid to rest at Neverland because I think the Media would turn it into a circus and also becasue I heard that after the raid he did not want to go back there. I heard the other day that The family plans on laying him to rest in an unmarked grave. At first I thought it was a good idea, but after giving it some tought, I think if it's a choice between unmarked grave and Neverland, I would have to chooe Neverland as long as it remains private and brought back to look the way it did when Michael lived there. With all the money coming into the estate, the administrators should be able to work somehting out.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

TJ   August 8th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

To LindaNew York–Yes, Katherine Jackson wants her son to be buried in unmarked grave at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles. She and her family fear that someone might want to steal his body or desecrate his final resting place should he have a marked grave. Because they don't want to attract any attention, only two Jackson family members will attend the burial ceremony as reported by Entertainment Tonight.

Last night, I was touched by Jermaine's statement that he constantly feel Michael's presence. I sincerely feel Michael's spirit will be present in their lives to assist them get over the agonizing griefs of losing him tragically at such a young age. I have been an avid reader of Sylvia Browne's books after losing my parents (Browne, a popular psychic on Montel Williams show who actually died and came back to life enough to write her experiences on the Other Side). One thing I remembered distinctly from her book is God is very generous and will allow the spirit of the dead person to go back to his earth family and stay as long as he is needed to assist the family overcome their griefs but he eventually must return to heaven or Home once his mission is completed here on earth. Listening to Jermaine talks about his brother's constant presence gave me goose bumps.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

I am really angry because these kids are going through hell as it is with the loss of their father and if that is not enough-all tthe jerks have to come out with their stories–even though the kids may not be allowed on the internet-Don't you think they will teased in school. If these so called fathers cared so much about them; why would they do this to them so publicly. Also the kids are not stupid; I'm sure they can tell that something is going on. I feel so sorry for Blanket thinking his daddy is on holiday–it just breaks you heart.

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

I’m hoping that Larry will do the right thing and bring Aphrodite Jones and/or Tom Mesereau on the show to set the record straight on Michael’s innocence. Fellow bloggers, let’s FLOOD Larry’s emails with requests to bring people who will help bring out the truth!

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Toni- You mentioned earlier that you took Tylenol #3 and demerol for mirgraine headaches. Have you tried Imitrex? Pain disappears completely in 10 min. Also, it is important to keep a food diary and google any medication that you may be taking to check for side effects. BCP and HRT are known for causing migraines. These are just a couple of things and many things you can do to prevent headaches or migraines.

Demerol is similar to morphine. Oxycontin is a opium alkaloid which may cause FATAL respiratory depression. Is this what Dr. Murray administered?

I saw the picture of Paris and Lester's daugther and I don,t find they look a like....He dreams....

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

iam praying for Paris, Prince & Blanket, thats all i can do.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Toni Miko was working on the London tour...

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

yea wen i read dat blanket asked if his father was on vacation i got sad...michael tried so hard 4 his kids 2 hav a normal life but now dat hes gone all these douchebags r coming out sayin thr the kids fathers like wtf go away thy jus want the money dat comes w/ the kids thank god mrs. katherine has the kids

SuzieCanada   August 8th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

lex, I don't understand. When did Miko say he's Blankets' biological father? He always denied these rumors. Some people think he is because he looks like Blanket but Miko always denied it.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Ohhh, maybe that will be the next announcement – but I was thinking it would be Blanket's mother revealed. Then another Will should surface. Let's see, who else could come forward? Truly I think that there is going to be a weekly weird announcement just to keep this going and going in the media.

I am really going now. BBL

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Yeah, I am guilty of hoping he gets buried ther, but ONLY a private safehaven. Make it what Michael used to love about it. I just feel that there was a reason he didnt want to completely let go of it. Maybe when he moved to Vegas, he wanted to make it into something for children again or something. But my belief is that God works in mysterious ways, and sad to say, maybe this is why God made sure he kept it. Im like you, I would rather have him there in a peaceful beautiful setting with security, than an unmarked grave . How would they ever keep it secret. They've alredy moved his body 3 times, and the media would always be watching so no one would be able to visit him.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Linda I feel so sorry for Blanket thinking his daddy is on holiday–


You do remember that it was Mark Lester that put that story out there, don't you? Maybe that is why he is claiming he might be Paris' father – so he can see the kids over Christmas break.

Luda   August 8th, 2009 10:05 pm ET

Linda, I read that about Blanket thinking is father is on Holyday... but I don't believe that. BLanket was at the memorial he knows he's father is dead.

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

oh suzie i dnt remsmber wen he said it but miko said dat he is blankets dad but hopefully its jus the media making b.s stories cz michaels kids look like him hands down

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

justice must be done for Michael, he was sincere & loving, its the least america can do for him, america failed him wen he was alive... the least america can do is to put Michael's killers behind bars, is that too much 2 ask?

Luda   August 8th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Lex, the family said the children saw the dead body.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

I suffer from Migraines too–I use to take Imitrex- changed to–Maxalt and Naproxen together–Yep-I'm a drug addict

gloria   August 8th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

I am done. There will never be charges against anybody in this matter and additionally I think the Jackson's will neve let any reports of what really happened be published... so, with that being said, goodnight all, and RIP MJ.... wish that thing had turned out differently for you and your kids

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Luda and Toni
I didn't realize that Mark Lester make that Comment.

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

but wat really tick me off is dat the paramedics didnt realize thy were workin on mj 4 like awhile dat doesnt make any type of sence

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

Good everyone, ladies...

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

Linda, Did find out what was causing the Migraines?

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Lex–I know That is such BS.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Okay. Let me try this again.
Good EVENING, ladies...
It's been a long day.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

Nicole – now you're here. I need to go eat dinner. How late are you guys staying?

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Miko never said he was Blankets dad. Larry asked him and he got pissed. He hasnt been on since. I think he was sick of all the crap. NO he never said that.
Thanks for telling me that Luda. I didnt know. So all the more reason I believe Michael wasnt taking all these drugs then, cause Miko said that he never saw it. If it comes to fired staff and 15 minute famers words over Miko, Mesereau and Michaels mother, Im going to side with the latter. Even Kai said she never saw it.
I had only heard that Blanket thought that once awhile ago. Does that baby still think he is just away?

Lori   August 8th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

Nicole – Mark Lester thinks he may be Paris' daddy, according to a couple of new reports. I can't beleive these so called friends Michael had. Are they all mental?

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

The doctor said that it was Stress related.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Hi Nicole S

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

So, who's going to Vienna–for this Concert

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

hey nicole no geraldo 2nite

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Hey Linda. How are you tonight?

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

the Jackson family need to put all their minds together & fight this injustice, MJ dd die in vain, those who killed him must rot in jail. end of story.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

I'd love to go to Vienna, but alas no passport and I don't think I can get one in time. Of course, neither do I have any $, either

CC   August 8th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Larry, I will ask again, when is the topic of your show going to focus on.......Is The King Of Pop Really Dead? and if he is, can you or anyone prove it? I predicted that Chief William Bratton would indeed resign right before the SO CALLED AUTOPSY REPORT WAS TO BE RELEASED of Michael Jackson. There is alot of speculations that Michael is not dead. Go to Michael Jackson Death Hoax on google. And be prepared to read alot, stunned and amazed. Because there are over a million viewers on this site daily. Go!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Hey Lex. What's going on girl? I know - he'll probably be on tomorrow night.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

Linda, are you going to Vienna? LOL...I'm thinking, yeah, I'll just drop everything and hop on a plane. I don't think so. Not the way those things seem to be falling from the sky.

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:29 pm ET

i've nvr been on a plane and i wnt be gettin on a plane anytime soon sorry michadl i'll jus watch on tv lol

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

HI NICOLE. 😀 😀 Good to see ya.

Yes all, I have tried many things. Mine are cluster migraines. So if I can catch it before it gets really bad, I can take just Advil or the tylenol. Its when I dont catch it in time when I { become a junkie }. Ive never taken anything stronger thanthe tylenol #3 except for 3 demerol shots 3 times in 12 years because it was so bad. So I think Im safe there. I also have to watch the # 3s because they can cause rebound headaches. I had a reaction to Imitrex. My headaches didnt start until after my hysterectomy in 1993, so my Dr. thinks its associated to hormones.

Malaika   August 8th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

i love Michael, i really do but the fact that Michael left every member of his own family out of his will but his mother & kids says alot. unless if he was being controlled by the so called executors!!!

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

I know–I was really excited until Jermaine said Vienna-My reaction was WHAT?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:32 pm ET

I'm listen to one of my favorite Michael songs, "For All Time."
"when i say i love you/baby you gotta know/that it's for all time..."
(sigh) I love this song.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Toni! What is UP girl? All my main scrapple apples are here tonight! Yes!

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

i'd put on some michael music but its 1030 and i dnt wanna get yelled at lol

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

Linda, What if he was wrong? What if you never had to live with another migraine just by making some changes in your lifestyle and looking at what you are consuming? To think that you might spend your whole life having migraines when someone else had a different approach to solving that problem.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:39 pm ET

I don't take those drugs all the time–every once in a while–I've been cortrolling the stress level. I use something that is all natural

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

(sigh) My second favorite Michael song, "Break of Dawn." This song is SO beautiul. It just makes me happy. I love songs like this. Just ethereal. God, I miss Michael.

"i don't know what i'm gon' do/i can't stop lovin' you..."

Siedah Garrett was right. When we lost Michael, the world lost music...

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

If I put MJ on while we chat about him, I cry. 😦 so I dont listen.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

Linda - I know. I was like, Vienna? Is Jermaine serious? Good for those in Austria, but for us...not so much!

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

i think a dvd should be released of the best tour performances of michael dat would be great

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:45 pm ET

Toni, I know. I can't help it. I'm in a mode right now. I just wanted to hear some good music. There will never be good music like this - ever again.

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

Anyone know what's going on with the investigation?

Svitlana   August 8th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

I've been impressed by Michael's generosity and talent. I think his image (the cosmetic surgeries, for whatever reasons) got in the way and became a distraction and produced a narrative that subsumed the inner man who not only believed in but also practiced love and generosity.

"Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow." –Alice M. Swaim

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Nicole –You got that right– The world lost music. There will never be another Michael Jackson-When I watch his videos-I just cannot get over what an amazing talent he was and that he is definitely gone too soon.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

I was thinking that today too. What happens when this is all over. The world is still gonna turn, and everyone will get back to life. But I dont think its going to be that easy for me. I just cannot accept the world without Michael in it. I am really truely heartbroken over this. Im totally consumed with sadness, anger, hurt, guilt and total despare. What the hell do you do with it. It doesnt just go away. God , imagine what his children and mother feel like, if I feel like this. Help me buddies. 😦

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Malaika - actually, I would have done the same thing that Michael did. If I had children, I would make sure they were well taken care of upon my death. And I definitely would make sure that my mother never had a financial care for the rest of her days. He made sound decisions.

The fact that he left nothing to his siblings is not a slight to them. Neither is it a slight that he left nothing to his own dad. When He became a dad, his life changed, you know. Besides that, no one knows the exact language within the Trust provisions. I hope we never know because that's their family's personal business, you know?

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 10:54 pm ET


I know how you feel.

lex   August 8th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

toni i'll nvr 4get michael i'm gonna make sure i keep his legacy goin all by myself if i hav 2 b/c w/o michael evr makin music imagine wat the world couldve been like we took him 4 granted and now dat hes gone we miss him we shouldve honored him wit awards and praised him about his great charity works wen he was alive

CC   August 8th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

Dear Toni, Please do not beat yourself up over this. Go to Michael Jackson Hoax Death on Google, you will feel much better, believe me you will. Read all our comments there, it will help shed some light on your grieving, you are not alone. Please go!

Toni   August 8th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

For some reason, I never let the nose surgeries get to me. I guess I just kind of went with it. If it was what he wanted, then I was ok with it. It never took away from his talents, and I always thought he was cute and sexy anyway. I guess when you are a fan for 40 years, you just dont let it bother you. I just wish the vitaligo wouldnt have taken all his color. I think that bothered him more than anything else did.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:03 pm ET

I really don't think it says too much that he left his siblings out of the will. He named his mother and I think that is enough.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:04 pm ET


Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

What the heck is this Michael Jackson Hoax stuff? He would not put his babies through this!!! Please stop.

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Hi fans. Just got in from work. Checked my email and found something I would like to share with everyone regarding DR. Murray. He once again admits giving dangerous drugs to Micheal.

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 11:06 pm ET

MJFC Newsletter

Hi Patricia Anderson,

This is the latest news on your favorite artist – Michael Jackson.
Issue #59
Murray Reportedly Gave MJ Also Sedatives Before Death

MJ(7-8-2009) According to a report of The Associated Press (AP), which is citing a law enforcement official, Dr. Conrad Murray administered multiple sedatives ALONG with the powerful anesthetic propofol to Michael just hours before his death.

The law enforcement official spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The official said the type of sedatives Dr. Murray administered were benzodiazepines. They are often used to calm patients before surgery. Benzodiazepines include such widely used antianxiety drugs as Valium and Xanax. The law enforcement official wouldn't name which benzodiazepines Murray gave Michael Jackson.

Combining propofol with benzodiazepines is common in operating rooms. Doing so in a private home is not, and it raises numerous safety issues. It's a safe combination if done properly...BUT potentially lethal if not.

Murray told investigators the doses were within normal medical guidelines. However, even at acceptable levels, benzodiazepines can intensify how the anesthetic propofol depresses breathing. Thus, strict monitoring and careful dosing is absolutely required. The balance can be tricky, a slip-up disastrous.

Murray also told investigators Michael Jackson stopped breathing the morning of June 25 and he was unable to revive him.

CC   August 8th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

TO: TL/Huntington beach, the investigation is going slow because of a few certain things, Chief William Bratton resigned because of this. There is something shady going on, and us at MJHD are working together on it. We have a few leads, but if you want to keep up to date on this go to Michael Jackson Hoax Death on Google, you will get more answers there much quicker than anywhere else. And what is said on this site had been analized and compared to all the garbage you are hearing on the news and tabloids.Want the facts? get it there.

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

So this Dr. gives him sedatives and then administirs Diprivan. I don't understand why he is not locked up????

Farawell   August 8th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

If this is true, that Michael is going to be buried in an unmarked grave this is a very bad omen for his soul, he deserves a beautiful place. An honor site only for him, we don't have to know where it is, but it cannot be unmarked! I don't know why peolpe are so mean. Since Michael passed away I have praying for his soul to find peace. But I have been reading a lot of crap, it seems to me that we are all cut up in lies,delusions, distortions about what realy happen to Michael, and worst I believe we were never know the truth, because The Jackson Family wants to protect their State and for them money is more important wait, we will see Jermaine with his new solo album and then the rest of them are going to cut deals all over. But is going to fade away. There was only one and he left . Michael is the only one and he is forever no matter what ! He had class, elegance he was beautiful in and out. I don't care what you people say or think he was the one! The rest is the rest! He was the best! I miss you my sweet Michael see you in haven same day!

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:12 pm ET

Toni - trust me - I speak from experience. All joking aside, allow me to get serious for a moment.

You have to snap out of it. That's the thing about grieving someone. You cannot allow it to consume you. As for me, I miss Michael too. As a person of faith, I know that he is with the Lord. Like I shared the other night, I lost my dad and my sister, two extremely close family members. I know that they lived their lives in such a way that their spirits live forever (in a good way). I believe in Heaven and Hell. I know they are in Heaven. That's why I make sure I live my life according to Who I believe in, so I can see them again once I take my last breath and return to dust.

Michael would want his fans to mourn him. I also think he would want us to remember him by doing small things right where we are, within our own communities, to improve the quality of life for people we encounter on a daily basis.

So, by all means miss him - we all do - but make sure that you don't let the grief take you to a place from which you may not be able to return.

Okay, let's lighten this party tonight. What about the Jermaine sighting at the Dodgers game? I guess Halima told him not to get us any tickets...LOL!

lex   August 8th, 2009 11:13 pm ET

where'd nicole go

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

Toni- The nose surgeries bothered me. Mainly, because in my work we go to Advance sales meetings to inspire, encourage and motivate people to have full mouth cosmetic dentistry done. You see the ads in the Classified help for plastic surgery sales people. For some of these doctors it's meeting the sales goals. People have said Michael wanted these extra surgeries. Well, I think the surgeon went way to far. It;s up to the surgeon to protect his reputation by saying No.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

Lex - I'm here...just rockin' to Michael's music...listening to "Baby Be Mine."

"and girl i give u all i got 2 give/baby u gotta be mine..."


Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

I know I was quite annoyed that Jermaine could go to the game and not make time to call me

Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

Michael felt his responsibilities were his children and his mother, and thats where his money went, pure and simple. The rest are big boys and girls, they can take care of themselves. Plus Michael was no dummy, I think he knew his mother would help his siblings if need be. It just saved him from having to list all their names.

However Nicole, I am a little upset with Jermaine. After I thought about it last night....only one of Michaels charities were mentioned, and not his favorite one{ Heal The World}. The other two were Jermaines and Larry's. Just the more I thought about it, the less it started to sound like it is for Michael. It's just too soon after his death for a Jackson concert { I dont think I could even watch without Michael. Michael MADE the Jacksons}. So If they cant even do it on his birthday, I kind of wish they would give us all a little time to heal first. Then promoting Larry's wife too? It's just not sitting well with me now. I know he loves his little brother, but are the real motives there? I was expecting something like what Princess Dianas sons did for her. I just want it to be about Michael, nothing else. He deserves that. Not a comeback for the Jacksons. Dont be mad at me. 😦

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:23 pm ET


There were a lot of doctors that should have said no to Michael,

lex   August 8th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

oh i thought evrybody left

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

Michael Jackson Death Hoax-What?-I beleive that Michael is dead. As hard as it is to admit.

TL/Huntington Beach   August 8th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

cc & Patty Anderson- Thanks for the update!

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

Nicole – saw a transcript of DiLeo interview for another network. It was almost identical to the LKL one, word for word.

DiLeo also said something about having been blind for 8 years or something.

And he said Michael weighed 145 pounds. I just thought that was odd when so much of the media's been saying 112! And Michael looked as skinny as a credit card in the recent pictures

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

Nicole is right, I definitely know what you are going through, Girl I have been mourning Michael since June 25th– I've been totally consumed; every minute of the day. It is hard for me because Michael was one of those people that I never thought about not being on this earth. He was just special. I do believe that he is in a much better place. We his fans just have to make sure to keep his legacy going. Even though, I never Michael, I will miss him the rest of my life. BTW-I still cry when I see his videos.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

So if ole doc Murray said MJ stopped breathing in the morning of the 25th, why was it afternoon when he came downstairs?

Patty Anderson   August 8th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Toni I know the pain you feel. I have followed Micheal since he bagan and was on American bandstand and Soul Train.. I don't believe this will ever totally go away because of the person Micheal was and also because I don't believe our questions will ever be truely answered. Nicole S. is very right we cannot let it consume us. I no I have right now. I feel like I'm obsessed with all this. I can't go a day without listening to his music. That's all I listen too now. I won't listen to anything else. I have to watch at least one dvd a day just to see MIcheal. I think it's so hard because this has been so tragic. Micheal was suppose to still be with us. Maybe by all of us fans being here everyday or night it will help everyone. Nicole your words are so well spoken and yet very true. But when you have followed someone all your life it is very difficult to let go or even simply say goodbye. Micheal was such a beautiful gift from GOD and I know he has taken him home. I also know that in time our pain shall slowly heal, It will Toni. One day at a time, it will get better. Just always remember " YOU ARE NOT ALONE" and Smile 🙂

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Toni - I'm not mad at you. 🙂 I know what you're saying.

This morning, I thought about that also. Last night, I said that all of the Jacksons just need to be still and process the totality of what has happened. I know everyone grieves differently, but it sends the wrong signal when you're planning concerts and the like.

It's only been a month. Michael's estate hasn't even been completely settled yet. Sometimes, it's best to just fall back. Jermaine should cancel that Vienna concert and grieve his brother for a while. Constant movements will not change the fact that his brother is gone. He needs to completely process it, own it, and then move forward in preserving Michael's legacy in a manner of which Michael would be proud.

b   August 8th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

OMG! I just read on TMZ on Michael's kids godfather said he maybe Paris daddy. What a disappointment. Those kids just lost their daddy. If you really care about them why bring up stories to create confusion and doubt in them. No doubt Michael had no real good friends to trust. It looks like they all wanted money. Now he's gone they are doing everything to be the kids father. Shame on you.

lex   August 8th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

i was watchin a video im mj in 07 shoppin in vegas and he looked skinny but not unheathly michael was always a very thin man so i dnt think how much he ways should be a problem since he rehearsed 4 hours evn if he went thr thm w/o really wrking dat hard cuz he didnt hav 2

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

At the time I just felt well–It's still charity. He did mention Feed the Children.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:37 pm ET

Ooh Lori. Thin as a credit card? That is wrong on so many levels...I don't want to laugh, but that is a funny remark.... 🙂

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:39 pm ET

But then when watched it again-I had the same take you guys have.

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:42 pm ET

I can't take credit for it. My X-brother in law used to use that phrase to describe soccer players he coached and I thought it was very descriptive. I always think about him (bro in law) when I see really thin people. I miss that man – he was the only one of my in-laws that I liked.

Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

I know girls. I know he is in a much better place. Its just the shock hasnt worn off yet. And yeah Linda, its like he was one of those people that you just dont think could ever leave forever. He would go for awhile and come back. Like he said " It's like where did he go, to here he is again". I know it will get easier, its just with all the garbage and crap going on, it prolongs it. Dont worry, Ill be fine. I have babies myself remember?

Linda...CC is trying to get us to go to a site that is saying MJ is still alive. Calling it the " MJ death hoax".

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

I haven't seen CC-Death Hoax here before.

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

I'm still pissed–VIENNA?

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

I was too, I wasexpecting some kind of different announcement

lindafromnewyork   August 8th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

Re: CC–I know–I'm not delusional. Give me a break

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:50 pm ET

Did we loose you Nicole?

b   August 8th, 2009 11:51 pm ET

I've been listening to all Michael lyrics after his death. Lyrics tell who he really was. What he went through. This lyrics tell so much.
I know Michael would be crying if he could see what's happening after his death. For the unconditional love he's getting from his fans. But also to see how people around him are treating him even after he's gone.

This time around I'll never get bit
Though you really wanna fix me
This time around you're making me sick
Though you really wanna get me
Somebody's out
Somebody's out to get me
They really wanna fix me, hit me
But this time around I'm taking no s...
Though you really wanna get me
You really wanna get me

He really thought he really had
Had a hold on me
He really thought he really had
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought he really had
Control of me
He really thought he really had
They thought they really could control me

This time around I'll never get bit
Though you really wanna get me
This time around I'm taking no s...
Though you really wanna fix me
Somebody's out
Somebody's out to use me
They really want to use me
And then falsely accuse me

What is this hoax crap everyone's mentioning. Sounds ratehr sickenig Micheal would never do that. That a girl Toni. Take care them babies. In time you will be ok. Is this hoax site for real....

Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

I was really hoping the bombshell at the end of Larrys show would be jermaine saying "Ha Ha, the jokes on you, heres Michael". But No. 😦

Lori   August 8th, 2009 11:54 pm ET

I still can't listen to "Will you be there" without crying, but I am working on it

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

Linda, I know. Vienna is a bit of a reach. If Jermaine wants to plan something for Michael's fans, have it in Las Vegas. Michael loved Vegas. He wanted to settle himself and his children there eventually.
That would make more sense.

Jermaine - it really is okay. Just be still and mourn your baby brother. Michael's fans are not going to ever forget him. We will support his legacy. There's no hurry in the matter.

lex   August 8th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

i really love they dont care bout us the lyrics r so strong all michaels lyrics were strong RIP MJ

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 8th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

Lori - I'm still here. I was trying to gather my thoughts for the previous post to Linda. 🙂

Toni   August 8th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

I dont know if its real or not, but noway would Michael do that to his children and mother.

lex   August 8th, 2009 11:58 pm ET

i cried so hard wen ms pregnant jennifer hudson came out and sang it at the memorial his finally concerts wouldve been somethng man 2 bad he aint get 2 do thm 😥

the family would have to be in on it...but I just don't see how it could work

Toni   August 9th, 2009 12:01 am ET

So whos gonna check out this death hoax site? I vote lex! 😀

TL/Huntington Beach   August 9th, 2009 12:03 am ET

b, Those lyrics are very depressing. Who was controlling him? Jermaine mentioned his mother controls everything. As if they were dependent children instead of middle aged adults? Did Michael not take charge of his life? Did he know his rights as a human being? His rights as a patient? Did everyone control him because he was not able to take charge?

lex   August 9th, 2009 12:03 am ET

my friend really almost had me convinced dat he was still alive but it would be way 2 hard 2 pull off and he's dead so its obviously no true

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:04 am ET

Look I would love it if were true, but I know it's not. Let's not discuss it anymore, okay. Probably Diane Dimond trying to get new story on MJ. How desperate can some people get?

Patty Anderson   August 9th, 2009 12:04 am ET

Lindafrom newyork. Thanks it sounds sick some people just have no soul do they. I agree with Toni, Micheal would never do that to his children or his mother. I don't care to even look at it. What a bunch of sick narrow minded people

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:04 am ET

I am not checking out that site. It's a bunch of garbage, I'm sure.

I don't know what's wrong with my spelling tonight. I hit send and then realize I've typed it too quickly! Oh well, screw it.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:04 am ET

I could go to Vegas – I even have a place to stay. My niece lives there. Yes. They need to do something in Vegas

Toni   August 9th, 2009 12:05 am ET

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:11 am ET

I checked out that sight just to see what the hell cc was talking about. Talk about delusiional-WOW–there is a reason for everything connected to the case.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:13 am ET

I think Jermaine should have parterned up with Lionel for a concert. 🙂

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:13 am ET

Larry - please convey to Jermaine that Michael's fans think the venue should be changed to Las Vegas. For further clarification, please refer to my 11:55 p.m. comment. Thank you.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 12:15 am ET

But I am alittle curious to what they are saying. :-

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:15 am ET

Because, after all, the fans should get what we need

lex   August 9th, 2009 12:16 am ET

lol u'd be happy 4 dat lori loinel n jermaine

Toni   August 9th, 2009 12:18 am ET

Okay, enlighten us Linda?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:18 am ET

Lori - you know, that is actually an excellent idea. It would be a great concert in tribute to Michael, not to mention the fact that people would wholeheartedly support it. I certainly would - provided that Lionel sings my absolute jam, "Good Morning."

"good morning/it's a beautiful day/the sun rises/by me, she lays..."


lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:19 am ET

Yes-Larry please do, Look-I'm begging okay-Jermaine said that he he felt that not enough was done for the fans-Michael has fans in the US also--So unless Jermaine is planning on flying all of us to Vienna? he should rethink it? Is this concert just for the rich and famous fans or what?

Patty Anderson   August 9th, 2009 12:26 am ET

A concert in Vegas would be excellent. I could even make that one.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:27 am ET

It basically talks about the inconsitencies in the stories about what happened on June 25–we talk about it too-but not because we think he is still alive.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 12:27 am ET

I had to go get popcorn. 😀

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:28 am ET

They just need to acknowledge that it is really us (we know who we are) who run the world

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Linda, if it isn't, then the wrong message is being sent to Michael's fans. I'm one the first to defend Jermaine's honor on the blog, but I'm keepin' it real on this topic. However, Michael was for inclusiveness for all people, not just rich people or those of an elite social status.

That's why he often helped the less fortunate on the low, because he wasn't looking for the glory. He wanted to improve the lives of people in general. Internationally, but also domestically. We love Michael too, and it is a travesty that we have to travel all the way to Austria to honor his memory.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:30 am ET

We are not dwelling on the past; I just don't believe that Michael is alive. If you want to believe it feel free. I choose not too. I certainly did not mean to hurt your feelings–we are all entitled to feel any way we want.

lex   August 9th, 2009 12:33 am ET

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:38 am ET

That's what I'm saying.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:38 am ET

Okay, let's sing:

"it's the falling in love/that's making me high/it's the being in love/that makes me cry, cry, cry..."

That's "It's The Falling In Love," from the "Off the Wall" album... 🙂

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 9th, 2009 12:41 am ET

LOL, Toni. With the hoopla on "Jermaine Interview Night," I forgot to mention that his show wouldn't be on Saturday night.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:41 am ET

That'a basically–what I was trying to say-It is so easy to beleive it because more than anything that's what we would all want. I don't even want to start thinking about anything like that. It can drive you crazy.

Good Eveing Larry.

I missed the Exclusive with Jermaine Jackson on Friday however, I had taped it, and was so delighted over what I heard, and saw. Thank God Jermaine is going to spread the message of good will, in dance, and song, and various entertainment in Vennia. in honor of his brother Michael who is resting in heaven. He will be looking down I'm aure. Although I and my husband wont be able to afford to attend, our eyes, and our hearts will be watching all the preformances on television. I also can't wait for the CD to come out with Shawn and Jermaine in a duet. When excatly is that going to be released? Larry thank you for all the excellent guest, and journaling over the many years. You are the man of the hour.

I have one more comment, and that is especially to your Mother Katherine. Its so hard to lose a child before you, because I myself lost my two sons,(also fa and for several years, we would see their shadow going through the house, and we have had so many signs. I know that the shadow of Michael that someone saw at Neverland when he first left us, was indeed his spiril letting everyone know hes okay. And someday we will join our sons, what a feat that will be!. Ms Jackson, some may think this is insane, but I know what I know, so it doesn't matter. Just wanted to inform you of my beliefs, and its all factual. God Bless you, and all your family, and grandchildren.

susan watts   August 9th, 2009 2:37 am ET

A lot has been said of MJ, the Artist and the Man, I would justlyke to add this short essay.

The door was opened, the air felt as if feathers had been released and allowed to float. An artist, as he thought of himself, immersed in thoughts of landscapes and electric colors, made himself star of the show.

Works of art, reflections revealing what had past and that which had yet to be, bellowed off the walls of the studio. Sparkle of colors marking defining shapes, undistorted from the artist imagination, spring from the canvas onto the observer's unconscious.

The observer just grabs it, just as it is, involved unwillingly by the colors and shapes, so daring as to out wit. Eyes of the observer, dancing with intrigue, pauses to consider the message. Facial expressions ask, What does it all mean, if anything? The conscious unsure of what the eyes have seen, a suggestion not offered, a conclusion yet to be drawn.

Moving on is not necessarily leaving. The shapes, the colors, the sounds the eyes have seen, scortched on the conscious, bring us back to Images on Canvas.

The stage was MJ's canvas.

John   August 9th, 2009 2:54 am ET

did not beleive a thing Jermaine had to say. He has used Michael for years and he didn't know too much which tells me he was not even close with his own little brother. too clueless to even be bothered
Jermaine is running scared for a paycheck and since he cant do anything he is going to ride his brothers fame and benefit his own self
He cant take care of his own kids he has hiaaged mother taking care od them a loser and a leech who has sided in with the lawyers and that concert outfit. he sold his brother out for money. loser.

JJ Reinhart   August 9th, 2009 3:01 am ET

Some people deal with GRIEF by talking about it a lot! GIVE THE MAN A BREAK!!! He was the closest emotionally to MICHAEL as a BROTHER and he has a lot to say about that! All you out there being CYNICAL please keep in mind that this has only transpired LESS THAN TWO MONTHS AGO...still pretty fresh in the grieving process for the WHOLE JACKSON FAMILY. Jermaine has taken it upon himself to be "spokesman" for the family, and he happens to have known LARRY KING FOR YEARS! If my brother had died I would want to focus on the POSITIVE and SAY THE BEST ABOUT HIS LIFE! As far as "riding the coattails" or "greed issues"...we really don't know what these people are going through right now with the CONSTANT BARRAGE OF MEDIA SCRUTINY> How would those people like to have their life put under a microscope EVERY SINGLE DAY???? Michael's life may have it's eccentricities but I think his music speaks for his heart. And we may never have all the answers...and so the family may never have them either. Give a grieving family some space.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 3:44 am ET


Yes, Joe had another daughter in 1974, out of wedlock. Mother was a fan (of JAcskon 5). Her name is Joh'Vonnie Jackson. She is not so close to the family but she has been to Neverland.

John   August 9th, 2009 3:44 am ET

If they'd all stop lying and giving into the media telling us crap I might have felling for this creature. the man cant be very cocnerned if he keeps saying i dont know and has a cheat sheet with answers on them. Fans know more than this brother. Nobody else but him and his fadder has come out and they are suing the estate for 40 millon dollars so you tell me. he defended the same peopl his own mother is fighting. hes an idiot. he is in with the dr and the media never seen him so much in all the years his brother had problems. i dont know i dont know i dont know. he should have stayed at home but he get paid to show up for the camera i dont know i dont know i dont know. the man is in a dream world

Is one of the Jackson grandchildren on this blog?

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 5:01 am ET

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel



All that is guesses, good guesses but still speculations. Michael was not innocent and he knew exactly what he was doing. There are plenty of evidence for that in both, interviews and how things turned out.

What if Michael couldnt have children? What if he had some inheritable illness that should not be passed on to next generation? Im not saying that is the case but if it was so, then it is natural to have sperm donators.

The only thing I think was a big mistake was to not give the children mothers. It is very important both for a healthy development of identity but also to have a female person in your life that you know will always be connected to you no matter what. Michael should have made sure that the kids stayed in touch and build up a good relation with their mum but also let Blanket know who his mum was and give him a chance to have her in his life from the beginning. If he thought she was not good enough to be involved in Blankets life he shouldnt have had a baby with her.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 5:45 am ET


Yes, that might be true but you should be careful calling michael a victim. He might have been a victim to depression and sadness but he had many more choices than other people. If he hated what money brought him he could have withdrawn from all that. He could have sold neverland. Bought a house in Cornwall or Curacao or Zurich or Kuala Lumpur, moved there with his children and live happily after and the press would have lost interest after a couple of years.

All though I would hate that scenario it still was a possibility for Michael. He had half the share in Neverland and if he didnt want to do the touring he could have lived on anyway.But there is a symbiosis between the leeches and the giver. Life is about choices and yes, michael was addicted, addicted to his fans, to his life style and traped into the only life he knew of.

@Lisa S,

I don't mean MJ's children, but one of the other brothers. Yesterday I saw a post which made me suddenly question. Unfortunately I cannot find the right topic anymore and it's difficult to look into 1500 posts.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 9th, 2009 9:05 am ET

@Lisa S August 9th, 2009 5:45 am ET

I think you always give good assessments. Though you are critical, you speak with warmth and respect about MJ. I often share your view and questions.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 9:31 am ET

This is unbelieveble!This never end.

Michael & Tatiana fan   August 9th, 2009 9:54 am ET

Michael was a very good looking and sexy young man in his heyday and the first nose job enhanced his looks but he should had stopped right there. He didn't need many more facial plastic surgeries which eventually ruined his looks and his health. Post plastic surgery is very painful and therefore, you do need painkillers which Michael didn't need to add to his problems. Last month Entertainment Tonight did an age photo progression of what he might have looked now if he didn't have the numerous plastic surgeries. Michael looked like a fine and very distinguished man..much better looking than his Daddy Joe and his other brothers. Towards the end with all the plastic surgeries done on his face, Michael didn't look like the original cute little baby boy the stork delivered to the Jacksons' household.

Being married to Debbie Rowe was not a fact, she continued to give Michael Demerol while they were married as reported on "Geraldo at Large". She was not the right woman for Michael ( totally out of his league) and was just after his big millions. On "Extra", they showed Debbie visiting Dr. Klein a few days before the custody hearing about the children and the reporters were wondering suspiciously what was she doing visiting his office. Sure enough, the hearing on Monday, Dr. Klein's attorney showed up in court and dropped the bomb declaring Klein wanted to be a part in the custody of the three children!!

I still think if we could turn the clock back and fate was kinder, Michael should have married the beautiful young model Tatiana Thumbtzen ( his real love interest in the video "You Make Me Feel"). She would have been the kind of woman Michael would have been so proud of. Not only she was beautiful, Tatiana had an excellent background of accomplishments to tout about. She won a scholarship as a young teenager at the Julliard School of Ballet in New York, was chosen to model in Japan, actress, and an author. From what I have read in the past, Tatiana truly was in love with Michael..not for the fame and fortune and Michael was also in love with her but Frank DiLeo, Michael's manager, stepped in and broke them apart because she kissed him on stage! Tatiana would have been the perfect woman for Michael because she would had given him the elusive love he had been looking for and would stuck with him through thick and thin. Tatiana would had been the type of woman who would had given Michael the stability and confidence in life. Just imagine the gorgeous little Jackson kids they could have had and Michael would still be with us to this day and could had been a happily married man! Up to this day, Tatiana had a dislike for DiLeo, didn't trust him, and felt he took advantage of Michael. About DiLeo making the statement about Michael weighing 145 lbs is not believable! He was way too skinny to weigh that much..the hospitable reported Michael was so emaciated because he didn't eat much.

I personally know Tatiana's parents for years and I will say this...they are the most respectable, humble, and the kindest people you will ever meet. I had worked in the school system with them and love them very dearly. Her mother is just outgoing and soooo adorable and her father is the kindest man you could ever meet!

Helena   August 9th, 2009 10:00 am ET

OK! It's great to hear the family talk about their brother now that he is gone. Where were they when Michael had problems? Where was Jermaine when Michael faced these stupid child molesting accusations? Where was the family when he needed them? If he was addicted to drugs why the family didn't do something to help him? Even if MJ refused any help they wanted to give him to get away from his addiction they should have do it by force. If someone is addicted he doesn't understand the problem that he has. People who love him should do what they can..
Now that he is gone, now they remember him! Now they have a mission!!! Oh come on! Everybody wants to take a little piece of Michael even now!
I understand that the family mourns and I feel sorry for his 3 children because they lost thev best father they could ever possible have!!!

i hope nd pray that joe dose not get them kids

Holland   August 9th, 2009 10:18 am ET

This is not unexpected. Everyone will make sure they are known worldwide just because they claim they are very close friends to Michael. One day there will be one doctor saying Michael had two g..;

So what? What's the point of attacking a dead man knowing he can never defend himself?

Poor guy, no wonder why he can't trust anyone when he's alive. Even his "best friend" Mark Lester now told the whole world about Michael's sex life, believe it or not.

What's more? Come on, all the doctors, all Michael's best friends, hit him now!

mariau   August 9th, 2009 10:42 am ET

how come they made this story now.. if that was true, why that doctor didn't release his statements during the trial.. and during MJ's life..
why just now? as i said.. anyone, anybody body will come forward to reveal a horrible story, without any proof of evidence. they are doing this to continue humiliating Michael.
this is never ending humiliation and i guess because they earned money for the sake of Michael Jackson.. 100% there's another story again will be release horrible stories anytime anywhere any time soon about MJ. this is ridiculous.. and i hope they will earned it from Hell..

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 10:44 am ET

Bought a house in Kuala Lumpur, Curacao, Corwall–and and the press would have forgotten about--I don't think so. Come on. Michael went to Bahrain, Ireland-The press still tracked his every move, SO, I don't understand that comment.

mariau   August 9th, 2009 10:46 am ET

stu, holland you are right.. how come they attacking him he is dead and can't depend himself to this horrible story..

mariau   August 9th, 2009 10:51 am ET

no wonder why MJ didn't trust anybody.. those people will wait.. and if the right time comes to them.. i'm sure the HELL will opened wide to them..

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 10:54 am ET

Maria,i am hungaruian,and i live in Iceland. 🙂 But i dont know,how thay can doo to a dead man.Evil peaples all over the world.

Lois   August 9th, 2009 10:55 am ET

It is really hard to keep up with you takes hours just to read where I left off last any case, I was listening to some of MJ's music....I came across a You Tube video 3T – Tito's sons and one of the songs they were singing was written by MJ and MJ was in the video with was called Why (I think). Nice Song! Anyway, one of Tito's sons resembles MJ's Prince Michael I - so perhaps Michael is in fact their bio father and not these 15 min fame sperm donors!! PS - MJ looked really happy singing with his nephews! I believe it was the mid 90's when that was recorded.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 10:56 am ET

sory,i missed understand you Maria!

mariau   August 9th, 2009 11:08 am ET

STU, because they don't know the word "respect" that's why they're doing that to Michael. and it's really annoying,



Paula   August 9th, 2009 11:21 am ET

Jermaine, I must confess I cried when I heard you say that you felt your brother with you, especially at dawn...I had heard him saying, a long time ago, that dawn was one of his favourite parts of the day!
In truth, I don't think I had fully understood Michael's message ,to its full extent ,until the day he died. On the night I learned of his death I was unable to sleep.I've been unable to sleep well eversince...I wish I could rationalise this feeling as I'm not an adolescent anymore, I'm actually 43 now...I knew I loved him , but to this point? My reaction took me completely by surprise and still does. It feels like I've lost a close and dear one. How does one explain it? Maybe by the loss of one's own dreams...Back in the 80's and 90's he would come up a stage, any stage,and, in his very unique way,he would tell you that all your dreams were possible, and you truly believed him!Now, there's this emptiness inside, it feels like a polar cold got into my heart! It's completely insane! Yet I feel it and I know many others do! Michael believed so much in God, didn't he? I guess that if I was as gifted as he was I would have to believe in God as well! I'm not worshipping Michael here, I'm just trying to come to terms with his capacity of touching people's feelings, even and perhaps particularly, after his death. It takes a very rare human being to do it, regardless of all speculation about him. I'm looking forward to hear from that concert in Austria, will you advertise it all over the world? I would so much like to be there! As for Michael's passing, I hope he has somehow fulfilled his most cherished dreams and I truly, truly hope he has met God on his very last sight! With you Michael, forever! Thank you for the hope!

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 11:22 am ET


I dont mean like that. I mean definately retire. Not giving concerts not appear in public etc. That is what he should have done when he got the children IF he wanted to be left alone. He should never had accepted that interview with that, all but nice, journalist Bashir.

People will always recognize him but if he truly wanted to have a calmer life, promoting and hyping up a world tour is not the right way. The family are not really showing any interest of wanting to step out or the spotlight. Both jermaine and joe and latoya have willingly appeard on TV at least once a week since his death. Eventually, new artists pop up and a new generation only get to know old artists if they appear in the media or make new music.

Presidents have gone from the center of the world to "disapering". Paul Mc Chartny has managed to have a private life.

But all this is recommendations for a calmer life for Michael. Off course, I personally, prefered him making music and giving concerts forever and ever.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 11:25 am ET

Maria.i am not a God beliver,but i belive,that most of the peaples are evil.Is something com for tham to make money,or something,its good for tham,thay doo anithing.I see the kids,thay olso evil to each other.Cant explain why,thay just doo it.It is in human bload.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:27 am ET


Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 11:28 am ET

Paul Mc Charttny is still plaing,but not in front of the hole world.He is the only one left of the very very big talents.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:30 am ET

I see your point.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 11:33 am ET


Yes, but hysteria is gone since many years and when there are new fans of Michael everyday. The number of teenagers listening to Paul McCartny is limited.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:34 am ET

Paul McCartney also didn't become famous until he was an adult; he had a better handle on it. MJ was famous since he was 9 years old. I can't imagine how you deal with that? Maybe, it's just my perceptive, bu I don't remember the press hounding the the beatles the way they went after MJ.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:36 am ET

correct–Michael maintained that popularity until his death--Unbelievable-and now even more so.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 11:36 am ET

It is so quiet on the blog today? No new articles and few commenting. Where is everybody?

Is the larry king show on every night?

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:39 am ET

Yes it is-I thought you lived in the US

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 11:41 am ET

Do you see how late the guys stay on-Probably still sleeping.

Lois   August 9th, 2009 11:41 am ET

oops sorry it came out that way....I thought it would come out in a link form u can click on! - enjoy!

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 11:53 am ET

Lisa S.Its true.But i think,its very wrong,that a genius,like MJ couldn come up with hes music and konserts,couse of evilness.And he couldnt even die without evilness.

Janet   August 9th, 2009 11:57 am ET

I was very disappointed and disheartened by Jermaine's interview. I did not feel he was sincere or genuine. I fell he was there for the wrong reasons in an effort to promote his career and interest. I wish he would follow the lead of the majority of his family and Michael's close friends (IE: Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross) and no longer make comments or interviews on Michael.

Michael tried to do a great deal of good in the world and did not seek any public recognition or credit for his efforts. His charitable donations and efforts were far greater than we'll probably ever be aware of. He valued his privacy and had few people around him he could trust. With family and 'so called friends' breaching' his trust, no wonder he became such a recluse. My heart goes out to him and his children. I hope they all feel the love of his true fans, supporters and friends.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 12:02 pm ET

Linda from NY:

That is right. Jonh Lennon was probably more hyped up.

No, I live in Europe so I have no clue about the time in Us 🙂

mariau   August 9th, 2009 12:02 pm ET

to lisa s, and linda
i should say.. that because media wants to stop people to adoring his music and legacy.. media wants to stop buying MJ music... because
even to themselves, they couldn't belive that millions of his fans still admiring him and still loyal to him..

they said to themselves .. everytime.. it's unbelievable... still those people wants and desire Michael Jackson.. and those people won't stop... so media will not stop...

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:03 pm ET

I am here –9 am on the West coast. Just checking in. I'll be back this afternoon–fam reunion and a funeral. busy day

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

Then the media is very stupid,coz after all,thay should see,this peaples not gonna change them mynde.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:13 pm ET

I think all the stories in the UK tabloids are planted and untrue and I think a lot of the stories here in the US are wild speculation also. We don't know hardly any facts. We need to be chill and wait for what will come.

mariau   August 9th, 2009 12:14 pm ET

stu, that's right

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 12:33 pm ET

Morning All,
Sorry didn't get to blog much yesterday. Went to a funeral and as expected, very emotional.

You've got to be kidding, right? Mark Lester is now a back stabbing idiot as well? I thought he lived over in the UK, has a huge Chiropractic/Sports medicene office, became a Doctor-Uh oh. you don't think he had a hand in the priscription issue as well? This is really sad to believe. You never heard of him much after he stopped acting. Last I saw of him, he had a reunion with the Oliver cast and then again with Jack Wild when Jack was very sick with cancer.

Why are there such cruel and mean people in this world? Why are they trying to totally destroy these beautiful children? At this time, all these years have gone by, why are these men doing this? Is the money so important? I hope to God Katherine made provisions in her Will that if something should happen to her, before the children reach legal age, that she designates her own person – Rebbie or Janet to raise these children. She has 100% right to do this and nobody can argue her wishes. I have NEVER seen Mark Lesters' name on a BC, nor Kleins' either, donors, thats all they were, donors. If they are related, they cannot do anything about it now. They are Michaels children-PERIOD! What scumbags, hu?

FYI...Yes dear ladies...Get ready...Jermaine is coming into your tv's again tonight. They are repeating his interview tonight. 🙂

Lori   August 9th, 2009 12:47 pm ET

Jermaine againg and yet anothr chance to re-analyze it! Did you see in one of the NY papers that Lloyds of London is going after Slavit?
Before you know it this is going to be an international case, because now we have doctors in the UK claiming that MJ was asking for diprivan. Interpol and Scotland Yard will be coming into this next.

The world's biggest investigation for the world's biggest star.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 12:55 pm ET

Thanks for the the clip of 3T's featuring MJ–very nice

Sandi   August 9th, 2009 1:03 pm ET

I want to let the entire Jackson family know how sorry I am for their loss. I have heard so many things regarding Michael's life and death and I want to say that you CAN"T believe everything you hear. I wish people would give this family the time that they need to mourn. Who cares what "didn't" happen in Michaels past let it be in the past it's over LET IT GO!! I never got to see MJ in concert but grew up on the Jackson 5 and Jermaine, Michael and Janet's music. My wish for MJ's children is that they fill their lives with happiness and all of the great memories of their father that I know the Jackson family will tell them about.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 1:06 pm ET

I remember when Elvis Pesley died; all these people came out claiming everyting under the sun. Alot of them went on to write a book about their supposed relationships. Of course they were all lies. Eventually Pricilla Presley came out with her own version of what Elvis was like; which was a little more believable. It is just a shame that Michael doesn't have someone like that can come out and put all of these stories to sleep. Debbie Rowe can't do it; we all know she did everything for money.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 1:10 pm ET

Eventually the children will write a book - they are the only ones who know

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 1:17 pm ET

Exaclty–All these other people are all a bunch of hangers on who can't find a a real job–so Hmmmmmm–let's see what can I say about MJ today?

Lori   August 9th, 2009 1:18 pm ET

I also think a lot of it is malware. Hackers know everyone is looking for MJ news so they are writing junk and attaching a virus to it. Be sure you have good security programs!

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 1:26 pm ET

Lori, you are correct. How can it be th UK has all this 'real information' when Los Angeles authorities haven't 'officially' said anything yet? All of us can think of a more relaistic and plausable way all this happened and a lot of us have drawn our own conclusions and the finger points in the direction of that Dr. don't matter what his excuse is, he did wrong.

Does anyone remember when John Belushi died? his little druggie friend gave him that speedball. When she finally admitted to doing this, she got 15 months in jail. she was not a doctor and was using illegal drugs as well. This issue is very different. a damn medical Doctor did this. He was very negligent and I think should go away for 25 years to life. As for these other clowns, they should be ignored by the press, all they are doing is hurting everybody. I think their medical licenses should be pulled; out there mentioning private matters, breeching the Dr./Patient confidentiality agreement. What sort of friends are these people? Sorry, but I feel these idiots need to bow down and put their face right into a toilet, that's where they belong.

I'm going to watch the interview again. I sort of think that Glove Jermaine brought with him was the one he wore when he and his brothers brought in the casket. Listen to his words very carefully. He never said that was Michaels' actual glove. It was still good to have that connection just the same. He had to choose his words very carefully because so much is going on.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 1:32 pm ET

I'd agree Mary Lee. I think it was pretty close to being scripted.

christine   August 9th, 2009 1:36 pm ET

I loved michael Jackson,admired and respected his music,he touched me so much with his music,I wish I could have been a friend to him and loved him like he deserved to be loved,I would have wanted nothing in return just his friendship,not like these money grabbers.he brought so much joy to others,and was selfless,I have never been one to scream and shout about pop stars,and Michael was the only one and is the only one I truely connected with,because he was not just a geneius,but a lovely kind gently human being that I would have liked to have met,and got to know personally,and been a friend.My life has been saddened deeply with his departing,I do send all my love to his family,and it comes from my heart,just like Michael said so many times,I adored you Michael.xx

Sandi   August 9th, 2009 1:52 pm ET

I too think MJ's death was NOT accidental. I have many comments regarding this situation. It was reported that MJ had 20 undisloved pills in his stomach yet that could be what killed him. My question would be if they were not dissolved then they would not have a reaction on his system much less an effect that would have killed him would they? I am no Dr. or health care provider, however I know how to administer CPR, first and formost you lay the patient on a flat hard surface determine if that pt is breathing and has a pulse, if not then you proceed with CPR. I don't understand how with Conrad Murray being a Dr and a cardiologist at that didn't know better he certainly should have. My question here is why would he have not done the CPR properly and why he stopped and left MJ alone to go and get help. I had the privledge of being able to be in California during MJ's memorial for 6 days and I can still tell you the name and address of the hotel I stayed in with no problem. Why if you reside somewhere you don't know the address that seems really odd to me. I heard that is was proven that Dr.Murray did administer the drug Diprivan (Proprofol) again he is a cardiologist he should have known better. There has been many interviews with other doctors who know what that drug is used for and said that it should have NOT been used in a home setting, so again why did Dr. Murray? There are so many things that are wrong with this picture I don't understand why there hasn't been an arrest made yet. People don't set out to become addicted to perscription medications, we as common people go to dr's when we hurt or something is wrong with us, or when we don't feel good. We rely on these Dr's for their advice and when they write a perscription for pain medication or antidepressants we are trusting that they have our best interest at heart. Every doctor involved with MJ was his enabler they fed his addiction, instead of telling him NO they continued to give him the medicine they are equally responsible for MJ's death and should be punished.

Michael Jackson's music is amazing my car plays 6 of Michael Jacksons best CD's I listen to them every day and I watch his videos every day. To Jermaine: Please make more music and carry on what Michael can no longer do. Michael, you are loved by so many people RIP.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 1:56 pm ET

Gosh – there is a strong family resemblance between Michael and his nephews. Makes me wonder if MJ really had as much facial surgery as some folks say.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 2:13 pm ET

I think,he had.Hes lips was much thicker,hes nos-no comment.hes eyebrow line gat diferent.Hes face was realy turn to much more woomany.Everything was speachel,its gat to be fixed to be like a perfect doll.i belive,he had many changes,just look at hes pictures.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 2:15 pm ET

but i am wundering.if that was true after the autopsy,that hes wait was 55kg.I think,thats like 112phaunt.

Lois   August 9th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

Lori – I think what changed his face the most was the surgeries to his nose...yes he had surgeries on other areas of his face, but because of his many surgeries to his nose, it distorted the rest of his facial features. If only he had left his nose they way he had it in the mid-late 80' matter what he looks on the outside...he was a beautiful human being on the inside.

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 2:41 pm ET

Hi everyone

Robyn   August 9th, 2009 2:44 pm ET

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the interview with Jermaine. Jermaine is very level-headed and not quick to jump to assumptions. I am very impressed with him and hope we hear more from him in the future.

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 2:46 pm ET

I think MJ's facial change was just a blind fold which people had to take off to actually see the REAL MJ. hIS FACE MIGHT HAVE CHANGED A LOT OVER THE YEARS BUT ONE THING REMAINED THE SAME, NEVER CHANGED, HIS HEART. AND THAT'S WHAT I LOVE HIM FOR.

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

I watched the show again it really angers me that none of Michaels charities will be used!! Jermaine and Larry’s wife promoting there CD for Larry’s charities Jermaine’s charities, what about Michaels charities they are using his name – I’m sorry shouldn’t this be about MICHAEL.
Jermaine & Larry should be ashamed with what they are doing.

lex   August 9th, 2009 2:56 pm ET

michael's plastic surgrey didnt bother me...if michael didnt like somthng on his face thn who are we 2 judge wat he did thrz celebrities out thr dat hav had more plastic surgrey thn michael but the media doesnt attack thm

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 3:07 pm ET

Hi Stu,
Forrest Lawn does have cameras all over in the bulding that houses the crypts and the security watches from monitors inside certain other buildings. these cameras, well, you have to really look for them because they are not huge cameras, they are very small, but show a lot of the property, down each hallway and so forth. they also have secuirty people drive the grounds every so often, the gates are very high around the cemetary and only one way in and one way out.

I think Michael probably weighed more like 120 to 125 pounds in weight. I think the media deducted weight because certain body parts were removed for lab testing. I forget right now , but the brain alone weighs about 4 to 6 lbs, depending.

I noticed something as well in those pictures of 'Michael' in the UK. We all know Michael had his eyebrows tattooed, correct? why does this guy have eyebrow hair? Eyebrow hair has a hard time growing back, especially if you tattoo over it. I don't know, but I look at the UK pictures, then look at the picture from the rehersal and the picture from the rehersal is Michael. this guy in the UK making the announcement doesn't fit Michael at all, especially that getting down and pumping his fists and his walk from the bus. He looked a little sloppy too, since when did Michael ever have his hair inside his shirt or jacket? He didn't.

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 3:15 pm ET


that's right. They only attacked MJ coz he was the money making machine. They knew anything written or said about him was worth a lot of money and caught the "people's eye". The same thing is going on right now. Reason why we are getting more confused and unsatisfied day after day.

I truely believe when his children grow up, they'll write a book and that's the info i'm going to really believe. They might not know much about his medical issues but atleast they know a lot about the daddy figure they once had. and that's the side we really need to know more. Tabloids have fed us with all these crap which i also think fostered his early way to the grave. I just wish he had more peace and recognition for his wonderful work and genuine heart towards others.

As for Jermaine, i was a little disappointed when he and Larry chosed to promote their own charities instead of Michael's. I wonder how that keeps MJ's name. Anyway, maybe MJ's death gave them an insight to do charity work. Either way i think people are being helped and that's what MJ was all about. HELPING PEOPLE.

Terrie   August 9th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

I am still upset that Dr. Murray still out there gallivanting around as a free man. As reported on "Geraldo at Large", Craig Rivera (Geraldo's younger brother) was about to leave the airport received an anonymous phone call from a tipster reporting that they had seen Dr. Murray hanging out at the strippers' club, flashing big wads of money, and talking dirt about his patient Michael Jackson before MJ passed away. As we know, Dr. Murray had a hearty reputation of being a party boy with a very shady reputation in the past.

Dr. Murray had broken the patient/physician confidentiality agreement by doing dirty gossips in a very seedy environment. He was the one that administered the Propofol to Michael that sent him to his early demise. As far as I am concerned he was guilty as sin and very negligent that caused the death of a famous celebrity.....our question is how in the world was he able to obtain the Propofol (Diprivan) from the hospital. In addition, Dr. Murray was not board certified cardiologist nor was he a licensed anesthesiologist. Eventually, there should be an arrest and the culprit or culprits should pay for the injustice they had committed on Michael Jackson. Justice for Michael Jackson and he'll be able to rest in peace finally.

Nicole B   August 9th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

Michael did more for this world, more for it's people, than anyone can hope to accomplish in their one lifetime. People can say what they will about him but they cannot deny the truth, which you have brought to light once again Jermaine, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing so. He has been my inspiration for such a long time. He has inspired and influenced me so much that he can never stop being a part of my life. I have always and will always try my very best to uphold his message of peace, love, and understanding wherever i go in life. Jermaine, I mourn with you as we say goodbye to one of God's blessed angels and I just want to thank you and your family for sharing him with the world and helping him become part of millions of lives around the world. I truly believe that this is not the end for Michael, his message, or his music, but only the continuation of God's master plan. God does everything for a reason. He will live on forever, in the hearts of millions and in the hearts of generations to come. For I believe that the best way to keep someone you love alive, is to keep loving them. I will love Michael forever and for always. God Bless you Michael and God Bless the Jackson family. Together, let's heal the world:)

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

Personally, I don't care if Michael had plastic surgery. An iconic entertainer like him has to keep up appearances for his public.

I wish the media would stop deviating on this that and everything else we don't need to hear. I want to hear about these doctors and I want to hear about the true facts surrounding his death. All we have heard is basically BS, the slant on what the truth really is.

As for these so called Doctor friends. They need to just shove off and not be given any air time or print time or video time to whether they are the father or not. This is no longer an issue. Never has been an issue. Would you guys trust these people if they were your Doctors? They have no say so. I just bet as we speak, they are just filling the courts with 'strategy' to try and get some kind of right to these children. It AIN'T Going To Happen. Let them waste their time and money on this. I think the tag 'Godfather' should be immediately taken away from these clowns. then here sits Debbie, the one person who knows all and could be some kind of danger-Maybe she is making money off of Klein and Lester as well-who knows, who cares. I think they all need to be abolished from the family. Scary when you think of it and put it into perspective.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

Hi!! 🙂
Cant stay long, I have to go clean my B & B again, But had to weigh in.
Michael , to me, was beautiful inside and out no matter what. It was the disgusting images and expressions media took pictures of that was bad. They would always catch him in a bad moment. God, if you could see me first thing in the a.m., or on a housecleaning day, you'd all take off screaming. They always had to look for the worst possible photos to publish. He was still more gorgeous than his nephews in that video. I really liked the video, but what is this family going to do without him. You know he was only trying to help his nephews promote themselves. Because if Michael Jackson was on that video, you knew everyone was going to watch. At least you can obviously tell that he cared about his nephews and their careers. I think they may do very well, but will never hold a candle to their uncle Michael. However, Im sure they already know that.
I wish these jacka_ _ _ _ would leave these children alone. This is the jerk who had asked to have the kids for Christmas. I think he may have ruined those plans.
So anything else I missed? 😀
Im also second guessing Jermaines motives also. I really like him, but it's just too soon for a Jackson concert. Michael WAS the Jacksons, and for him not to be there would be too painful to watch. And Larry's wife promoting herself overshadowing Michael, I didnt like either. It just seemed by the end of the show, It wasnt about Michael anymore. And Im afraid thats what will happen at this concert. And only one of Michaels charities { and not his favorite, "Heal The World" } was mentioned. Then one was Jermaines.....ok, but why the hell was Larrys chosen? I dont know.....A few of us last night were starting to second guess the motives last night. I thought it was suppose to be for Michaels legacy?!

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 9th, 2009 3:47 pm ET

@Mariau, please, relax.

In order to plan your strategy, you have to know what your enemies are up to. Weren't you also fanatic in criticizing Diane Dimond, a blog posted by LKL itself?

You are the first to comment on trash, so do not come to me.

stu   August 9th, 2009 3:59 pm ET

I didnt belive,that MJ would be a life,but after reading this guy,its make me think.Evry question,that we dont undesrtand would be unsvered.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 9th, 2009 4:01 pm ET


I believe Michael is dead, I don't believe in the stand-in story.

BTW, my sister, her husband and 2 boys had tickets for the end of July. Somewhere in May they received an e-mail from the concert organisation it was postponed to February 2010. More people in Holland (that is where she lives) received that news. I think the reason that was given was technical rearrangements in O2.

Cj   August 9th, 2009 4:01 pm ET

Charice Pempengco of Manila,Philippines, the 17 year old girl with a very magnificent singing voice, was invited by Michael to join him on "This Is It " London concert. She was so excited about her hopes of singing a duet with Michael but only to be crushed when she heard of his death. Charice was very upset and was in tears hearing of his death and will never have her dream of singing a duet with MJ come to fruition.

It was good to see Jermaine sharing about his late brother MJ. It's good to know that the family is doing fine. But any time a person loses a love one it takes time to heal. I can truly say my heart felt the pain because Michael was a big part of my life also growing up with the Jackson's 5 were like family. I'm just now been able to sleep at night without thinking about his untimly death. I prayed to God for peace concerning this shocker. I know and believe that it was God's will that MJ live a long time. But we live in a world that will take the very life out of you if you allow it to. I also believe that God did not take Michael Jackson, God is not a taker but a giver. But the things and perople that we surround around can be deadly. I thank his brother for enlighten us on the events ahead concerning Michael Jackson. I think Larry King has a beautiful wife continue the light for MJ. People are going to say and think what that want to, if you don't do nothing they will complain if you do somthing they will complain. Damed if you do. Damed if you don't. I don't believe Jermaine is doing this for his sake but that his brother's legancy can live one. Instant of them complaining. Why don't we all get involed in our community" Because we are the world, we are the children, so let's make a brighter day let us start giving" of our resources, time. This is line up with the Bible.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 9th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

@Lois, nice video. Two of Tito's sons have also light eyes.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 4:14 pm ET

I dont believe it either,but the wahy,how this guy was wrighd all,its make sense.But i dont believe it,that he would risk to luse hes kids,and olso,thann why he would make all this O2 koncerts?

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 4:26 pm ET

Hi Stu
Just went to the website you provide very interesting a lot of facts. I really wish it was true maybe he could be happy. It does bother me when I watched the press conference why he said it’s the last curtain call and was not like he usually was. When you watch other press conferences he doesn’t act like that.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

It confirms all of the discrepinceies , and how sloppy the case has been handled,but he is still gone. He was not that kind of person. He would have never betrayed anyones trust that way.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

I meant indescrepancies { did I spell it right that time}? Oh well you know what I mean.

Talk to you all later. 🙂

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 4:32 pm ET


That was a very lengthy but VERY INTERESTING page right there. I really don't know what to think yet.

lex   August 9th, 2009 4:33 pm ET

true toni michael wouldnt do dat 2 his family especially his kids and his mother. he's gone and as much we wish it wasnt true atleast we noe mike's in a better place and isnt hurting anymore

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 4:43 pm ET

Could this be true? Coz right now , i really dont know what and what not to believe. At the same time i don't think MJ could be living and watching so many people hurt like this. I dont think he could even think that.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 5:07 pm ET

Honorine,i dont know,but this was explaine every ununsvered question.And dont forgat,wath is the most inportant,dr Murey is still free after all.

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 5:09 pm ET

What bothered me is the way he walked; he didn’t walk like that ever (at the press conference).

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 5:12 pm ET

I dontn think,its hem,hes nose is to big

Mara   August 9th, 2009 5:19 pm ET

Heidi – I don't think that was him. It was probably a double.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 5:20 pm ET

And i dont remember,who put here yesterday this egipt statue,thats crasy too!

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 5:21 pm ET

Stu, That is a strange picture, that is for sure. Steven Speilberg, maybe? An Elvis sighting again? Well, whoever it is, wanted to be incognito. If Michael wanted to vanish, he could have done it without hurting everybody and doing all of this.

Let's wait. I think Tuesday we will hear something official.

lex   August 9th, 2009 5:23 pm ET

dat was michael at the press conference and he'd nvr fake his death evn if mike loved 2 play pranks and watnot ppl r tryin 2 over analize wat marlon said at the memorial sorry guys but michael is dead and hes not comin bac i'd loved 2 beleive hes alive but no

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 5:26 pm ET


Can't apprehend that. It is so unbelievable that he is till now. I don't know what the LAPD mean by not arresting yet. Does it mean that no eveidence was found to get him arrested? I dont know. But this i do;

Do u remember that interview in which MJ explained how the police man-handled him roughly when they arrested him?(can't remeber with whom he had it) MJ went further to explain how he was locked in the tiolet when he asked to use it for 45 mins. They locked him in there for 45mins and smeared feaces all over the walls and floor. Then asked him if it smelled good enough for him in there. later told him he'll be let out in 5 mins, then 10, the 15 and that is how he stayed in there for 45 mins. If the police could do that to him knowing fully well that once he got out of there, he'll tell the story, what more of framing his tox results when he will not even be there to contest the results. I dont trust them at all. I'm just so sad nobody wants to speak the truth. Everybody coming up is making this issue more controversial and confusing coupled with news from here and there. I tell u it's like a mistery.

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 5:32 pm ET

I think its Steven Speilberg just looking at his profile on the last picture when he was leaving. did you also notice the black glove on this mans right hand on his knee?
I agree. Michael is unfortunately gone. Nobody would pay such a fortune for a prank, from the Sheriff helicopter to the expensive casket. Katherine Jackson doesn't look the type to agree to pull something like this.

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 5:36 pm ET

If u wanna listen, youtube "Michael Jacson-60 Minutes SUMMARY"

Luda   August 9th, 2009 5:38 pm ET

Hi everyone!

Stu, it's me who posted the link to the egyptian Bust.... I think it's a hazard but don't you think the resemblance is there??? LOL

lex   August 9th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

if michael evr brought up dat plan 2 his parent thy'd yell at him and evrythng specially mrs katherine jackson she'd hav a cow

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

Mary Lee – I haven’t heard anything about Tuesday? What info do you have?

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 5:45 pm ET

Hi Luda!
Its very miserial!Maybe he realy is an angel.

Luda   August 9th, 2009 5:46 pm ET

Michael is dead. That's for sure.... I don't understand that people can release news like this....

He would never be so cruel to his children.
Come on!

This is that "Elvis is still alive" going on again... but just changed the name.

Yeah,Yeah, Elvis & Michael had tea with Einstein last week... they're having a good time watching the coverage of Mike's death!! LOL
Come on!

Luda   August 9th, 2009 5:50 pm ET

Stu, maybe he was the reincarnation of that egyptian and didn't know it himself !!! LOL

Just a joke!

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 5:52 pm ET

i omitted the "k" in Jackson

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 6:06 pm ET


true reason. They were really trying to get even.

I just love the way MJ was getting "ganster' on them.

Lisa S   August 9th, 2009 6:11 pm ET

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel :

Im very sceptical to wether Michael would have done those 50 concerst. He was not well. 17 th of June he was at the hospital again.

The family cant really comment on his health in may and june as they didnt see him. Only Joe and he and Rowe said that Michael was not in good shape. Though that is about everyhing I believe of what Rowe was saying.

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 6:13 pm ET

Lex,yes,thats wath i was thinking about more too.

Niura Schwartz   August 9th, 2009 6:14 pm ET

Whoo! This video Michael and the nephews is beautiful they really resembled Michael, but thre is only one Michael! I think we are all in disbelieve and denial but the sad truth is that Michael is really gone and we the fans can only cry and do our own Tribute to him by simply beign his fans? Why we all get together and plan a Tribute from the fans maybe in Las Vegas at the Venitian .Michael loved the Renaissance and is here in the States. We don't need CNN or The Jackson's we were and we are the fans! Think about it !!
Because, we are getting angry at something that we can't solve , the questions are not beign answered is what happens in a democracy you can say whatever you want but nobody is listening. So, please, let's keep the faith in ourselfs and do something to honor Michael's life !!! Live the tabloids alone all this BS. I am going to do something if you peolpe that say you were Michael's fans want really to do it stand up and let's do it! Michael loved Las Vegas he was even thinkin about buying a house there after the shows in London. Well the topic is here ! What do you think ?

Stu,Hungary   August 9th, 2009 6:15 pm ET

Luda,i olso don belive,but now i am woching the other parts of this hoax thing on youtube,and there are very strange things.Even,if he died,still strange.

lex   August 9th, 2009 6:18 pm ET

michael agreed 2 10 shows only 4 his kids so thy can see him perform i dnt beleive mike couldve done 50 shows and who noes if he was in good health or not cuz this many ppl r sayin he was and this many ppl said he wasnt so idk who 2 beleive yea he was skinny but michael was always a skinny man so idk the true needs 2 come out so this mj death hoax crap can go away

Mara   August 9th, 2009 6:29 pm ET

Niura the Venetian is a gorgeous casino you may also want to check out Palazzo, Wynn, Encore or the upcoming City Center.

Marian   August 9th, 2009 6:30 pm ET

I agree with the person who wrote: "Is Jermaine 'lost' or what?"
I have a hard time believing that he's lived as long as he has and appears so naive. He either is pulling our leg about not knowing anything about Michael's drug use, or the second autopsy, or he is extremely naive! It is hard to fathom.

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 6:45 pm ET

I live in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles-between 'The Valley' and Hollywood proper. I just figure since most news will be centered on what happens in court again on Monday, the news media will be covering that and the Corners won't intrude on that. they have their own PR person at L.A.Coroners and they do try to accomidate news media. I just have a feeling something is going to pop up on Tuesday.

It'd be funny to go on to that Hoax site and just put in "Michael was seen at Disneyland last night, they let him start the Fireworks show in the Magic Kingdom-ha ha ha then he went and had coffee and donuts with Elvis at the Krispy Kreme Shop, followed by having midnight snacks with Bubbles, Elvis, Enstein and Abe Lincoln after stopping in at Aneoba Record shop in Hollywood'. 🙂

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 6:48 pm ET

As long as the Jacksons' stay away from any venue that AEG has in Vegas, I'll go...why not!

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 6:50 pm ET

Mary Lee,

It is interesting I’ve watched death hoax part 1 they do point out a lot of good points I can’t find part 2! I do believe he has passed – but I just don’t want him gone.

Mara   August 9th, 2009 7:00 pm ET

I think they only own Caesars

Lois   August 9th, 2009 7:05 pm ET

Niura – I think it would be a great only tribute, something that we can think about. I have never been to Vegas (living in Canada), but I have always wanted to visit there.

I think MJ wasn't sure if he had many fans left in the US because of the media coverage of his trial. That is why he was making his comeback in London. Certainly it would be something I would be interested in would take alot of work to set up though. Someone would need contacts in Vegas and we would also have to discuss what kind of tribute or platform we would use to have the tribute...something to think about though.

Helen 33   August 9th, 2009 7:10 pm ET

Why is Jermaine singing that "Fly Away" song that he said Michael was running by him the last time they saw each other? As if it were a new idea that Michael was going to put down. That song was made during the Bad album but didn't make the cut. I like the song, but it just seems weird.

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 7:25 pm ET

Sorry, that should read Amoeba Records...

That death hoax video part 3 –I find it Quite Interesting ! Especially when Michael goes into detail about Mariah Carey. did she or did she not say right afer the Memorial she had never met him? I do not think Michael would lie about something like that. I guess Mariah just forgot about 'the good old days', right? I'll tell you one thing for sure, is he nailed the industry down perfectly and said it the way it has truly been for many years.

I know Heidi, nobody wants Michael gone. I know. but remember the words to You Are Not Alone and also Will you Be There...True entertainers don't die, they belong and remain with us forever.

Lois   August 9th, 2009 7:29 pm ET

Gerald – if you are so concerned about the starving children in Sudan, etc. then why don't you go over there and help them.....another one flapping their jaws and being negative.....why don't you do something positive and create a foundation and help these folks in other countries.

Maybe then you might end up on Larry King.....I dare ya!

Mara   August 9th, 2009 7:29 pm ET

There is also The T&M center and Sam Boyd Stadium venues.

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 7:38 pm ET

It's simple Linda, he said it himself...he used the word ASSUME -translation he tries to make an ASS of U and ME except he is all A*s.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 7:39 pm ET

I definitely think this Fans tribute is a good idea. How would even go about planning something like that.

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 7:44 pm ET

Get a hold of Barry Gordy–He Still has some pull. and to H*ll with AEG says, just because they had a contract w/Michael, does not mean they still own him. The tie was severed when he died.

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 7:47 pm ET

You're right Mary Lee.–Good Idea

Mara   August 9th, 2009 7:48 pm ET

Hi Linda – Niura brought that great idea up and I had suggested along with the Venetian, Wynn Resorts, Palazzo, Encore, City Center, T&M or Sam Boyd Stadium as a venue. Caesar's is where MJ would have performed if he were to replace Bette Midler who is currently there but the Collesium belongs to AEG. I would love it if this were possible however I would not know where to start as money talks...

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 7:48 pm ET

Mary lee – Well said!

Gerald – You have no place on this site!

Mary Lee   August 9th, 2009 7:49 pm ET

Ah...40 more concerts and had to wait for yet another physical before starting for the UK....Doesn't seem plausable to hold someone to any contract without a medical check-up. C U Later...Dinnertime..

Honorine   August 9th, 2009 7:53 pm ET

Hey Linda

MoonTalker   August 9th, 2009 7:58 pm ET

I wish I had asked this the other night.

If Micheal doesn't get buried at Neverland, does that mean his detractors win!?

Clara   August 9th, 2009 8:08 pm ET


I believe I read just about all the post submted today, and yesterday, I especially like reading Tori' and Nicole S from NC. Before I elaborate on those two writers. I want to compliment Mona Fredericksburg from Vrigina on the most beautiful well written post that I have read to date. on Aug 8th at 1:05 am. Mona keep writing you had both me and my family in tears. MY husband is a educator and he was blown away. I hope you scroll down and read this please let me know if you received this.
Now than Tori I also enjoy reading your post daily. You seem to stay up on to what is happening Thank You.
As for you my dear Nicole S from Nc.
No I'm not cracked or lost my mind, or weid as you put it. I happen to be a older( senior) raised five children to which 2 of them have passed on to the otherside. I am a devot Christian lady, and do not dab into occults, witchcraft and the like. I just merly stated that I have felt my sons spirit surrounding me and my husband at various times, It is a strong vibe connection that one fells when you lose a child, I strongly believes that our Father in Heaven allows this to happen, so we can keep our sanity, and witts about ourselves. What ever it takes.
We are all trying to give the Jacksons some peace of mind, and it beehoves anyone to try and critize someone else, especially when one doesn't know the circumstances. But honey never mind that. I am not trying to explain myself away hear. I just hope that you would be a little more sensitive to ones beleifs, as I would be to yours. It does take all different people, races, religion beliefs to make this world go around, and I for one embrace all of them, as I do not sit in judement.
Nicole I take it that you are still a very young person, and I wish you well, as you progress in life. Just go easy on us older folks okay 🙂
P.S. Yes we were all brought up with Michael Jackson all my children are his age, and closer. My youngest son was born four months after Michael, and he had a fan base club in the city we live in. So again I say My two sons, and Michael are rideing on the crest of the moon, so eleoquenty said by Brooke Shields at Michaels Memorial.
Keep writing.
An oldie from the old school.

Janice Marinea   August 9th, 2009 8:22 pm ET

Did Michael Jackson die as a muslim brother?

Mara   August 9th, 2009 8:26 pm ET

I don't think it's him, the walk is not his he doesn't bounce when he walks, his demeanor/behavior, it just doesn't look like him but that is only my opinion.

Janet   August 9th, 2009 8:30 pm ET

Gerald , though I hate to give any more attention to your comments, I feel compelled to reply. Ignorance = Prejidue and from your statements you have much to learn.

Though I don’t totally disagree there is an opportunity for Larry King to cover other topics, I am offended by your terminology and presumptions against Michael Jackson. He was found NOT GUILTY by a judge and jury. He was an incredibly gifted and talented human being who gave a great deal of his time, energy and money to various charities. He was/is respected and loved by all races and ages for decades. He was different ... but most geniuses are. He didn’t get the respect he deserved while living ... please be a gentleman and give it to him and his family now that he is deceased.

Janet – a HONKY and proud lifelong MJ FAN!!

lex   August 9th, 2009 8:30 pm ET

y would michael has a double announce his final tours it doesnt make sense 2 me cuz he loves his fans and him not announcing thm himself is like lying 2 thm(but dats my opinion)

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 8:37 pm ET

I see what you mean. interesting.

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 8:41 pm ET


If you go to youtube part 4 or 5 they show them side by side. Hands are different etc. I don’t know how to attached to this blog can you. Its very interesting for everyone to see.

Hi honorine

Janice Marinea   August 9th, 2009 8:52 pm ET

Did Michael Jackson convert to Islam before he had passed away?
thank you

lindafromnewyork   August 9th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

I don't understand something–are we saying that MJ staged his own death? I never believed that it MJ announcing at the press conference, he jjust didn't look like himself at all–and his walk was weird.. MJ was a dancer–he always had a very graceful walk-calm walk–the movements were very rehearsed–but–then again in the concert footage it is Michael. I really believe that Michael is dead.

Noor Haq   August 9th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

If you ever have a chance to ask Jermaine if : Did Michael Jackson convert to Islam before he died? Will you please ask him?! Thank you!
Also tell him that he inspires all muslims and jermaine you make me even prouder to be a muslim!
Thank you!

lex   August 9th, 2009 8:58 pm ET

linda i dnt think michael staged his death he's gone 4real

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

My question is why he didn’t do the press conference. Who was rehearsing @ Staple’s, it sounds like Michael. On TMZ they are reporting the Propofol & Xanax were in his system but Propofol was front and center.

Jodi   August 9th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

He has gone way to soon, I still cry today and long to have the maginficant human being back on earth. No matter what others say we all know what contributions Michael gave to our world. His CD is played in my car everyday and my children wished they could have known his greatness as I have. Please provide a way for us to come and visit Michael. So many were able to complete their grief when Elivs dies by going to Graceland. Please ensure we have the ability to say good-bye for now..... God bless you and your family Mr. Jackson espcially your wonderful mother.

Clara   August 9th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Good Evening Tori.

I really enjoy reading your post . You seem to have all the goods, and your for real. You keep on top of what is going on. I myself think alot, and have emotional feelings it's really so very sad, what was done to Michael. when none of it was ture. It's a shame that one has to die, before they realize the true beauty of a person. I have to have surgery on my left arm next week, so I really cant type very much, so keep up the good work. I'm hope you understand my f eelings, anyway I read one of your post telling me that you have FAITH. That is really what keeps us going. I just disregard things of unimportance. I to would like to see the Jacksons have a big exgravance for Michel right here in USA. Venina is a bit out of reach (pocket wise) know what I mean. 'Oh Well" it's all good. either way.

lisa   August 9th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

let him rest in peace finally,since he never had peace while alive

Ronni   August 9th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

I miss Michael..and listen to his music every single day. You just have to listen to the words he wrote to see he was a beautiful human being. He wrote of love and changing the world for the better. What better legacy could he leave his children. Rest in Peace Michael and know that you were and are loved.

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Lex, Why? They had the news that Michael had died before anyone. They have been right – right.

Fred   August 9th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

The last video Michael made, it did not look like his dancing at all. Just looked like he was hopping around...

kelcee. chicago,il.   August 9th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

mr. j. jackson,

michael was fortunate to have you as a brother. and your family to have you a part of it. you seem to be a wonderful man who has lived through some hard times.. it is inspiring to see your sincerity. thank you for being so considerate of mj's fans and being so respectful to everyone during the unfortunate demise of mj. my best wishes to you and your family.

Jo   August 9th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

I can't believe Jermaine said he did not know Michael was on drugs, give me a break.. There must be a reason Larry is having him on so many times..We will know soon

Jo   August 9th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

I can't believe Jermaine said he did not know Michael was on drugs, give me a break..

i dnt trust any of wat the mediahas been saying bout michael thy were set out 2 ruin his life b4 he was dead and thr still trashing him evn wen he's dead so no i wouldnt trust the media heidi but dats my opinion

Heidi   August 9th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Lex, you are so right – good point.

Angela   August 9th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

I want to say to Jermaine Jackson that I feel his pain with all my heart. I sobbed for him. I lost my brother on March 29,2009 and the pain would be unbearable if I didn't have God in my heart. I will continue praying for all your family.

Ruth Hamm   August 9th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Dear Larry,
Regarding the question you asked Germaine, are you angry at God for taking Michael so soon?

How can you think that God did that? He had nothing to do with it. People have choices, and it appears that it was medications that he took that killed him. How is that God's fault?


Mara   August 9th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Niura – sure I will contact you there but see if you can get more people involved, this will be a huge project if everyone is serious about it.

Too bad we can't meet up here on his bday to discuss..something like a girls road trip to Vegas. =)

lex   August 9th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

micheael was doing a Technical Rehearsal-and I have to tell you that when you do a Tech Rehearsal-you just go through the motions–you don't give it your all. It as reahearsal just so that the tech guys know when to do what.

Oh My God.
I was so impress with Nicoles blog written on Aug 8th, that I had to print it out, and show it to my husband and daughters. Lo-and Behold, I just discovered this evening, that Nicole is the very person, that said I was into the occult, and wreid. I am sadden by this, I must be getting old, as I didn't realize it was her that replied to my blog. Well it's okay Nicole everyone is entiled to their feelings. PTL. You are still a great writer, and I can't take that away from you. Sorrry you felt that way about me. We really are all like slient fishes in a pond when we e-mail or blog each other, no one really knows how one feels, all we can do is speculate right?

Janice W.   August 9th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

It was mentioned that the tribute concert was moved from Michael's birthday of Aug. 29th in Las Vegas to a later date in Vienna, Austria so that more people could go that wanted to be there. I understand the change in date since it was right around the corner but why the change in venue? Michael loved Las Vegas as well and I see many more of Michael's fans flocking to that city that I do to another country. I know you cant make everyone happy but his career started in the US and many of his fans can't afford to purchase a plane ticket with room and board to be a part of this special moment is it possible that a tribute concert will be in the US later. Larry and/or Jermaine if you really do read these blogs please do what you can do to make it possible for a tribute to take please here in America.

Luda   August 9th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Hey that way of walking, it's exactly that part that I have talked about in previous comments one day that we were talking about that announcement.
I remember this day in march, I was watching that and I thought: it's not is way of walking.... he is different...

But you know a lot of people like Lisa Marie, said that Michael's voice in real life was lower...
MIchael was graceful which we haven't really seen in the march announcement...

But I really believe Mike is dead and would have never staged something like this... it's too big...
But the girl who made this video is she saying that it is Mike who staged this or is she saying that it would be his potential murderers??
she's not very clear...

Jo. Larry is having Jermaine many times because of the show in Vienna... his wife is part of it.

Tina (Topeka,Ks)   August 9th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

I know you won't read this but I spend my everyday wishing I could have been the part of life that Lisa and Debbie had. Michael is gone and just as I lost my mother in April I can't find peace on the loss of etheir. I regret the fact I never met Michael. I will always miss him dearly.

Clara   August 9th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

Hello Jean,

Are you out there? I discovered someone in my era. You and I are pretty close in age, and wev'e had some hard we can take it. I to would like to find out what excatly caused Michaels death, just so he, his family & fans can rest in peace. I want to strrike another cord. People need to go a little easier on Mr. Jackson. You think he was Saten. Back in the day all fathers had a strap or two. You have to give the man credit were credit is due. I'm from back there also, and street drugs and gangs were rapid. If Mr. Joe Jackson didn't crack the whip once in a while there never would of been a Jackson 5. My husband was a musician back then, so we knew the Motown crew, and everyone was one happy family. Things are so different now, a child has so many rights. The Bible says don't spare the rod to spoil the child. In closing our dear Michael is absent from the body, and present with the LORD. Good Nite.

Janice W.   August 9th, 2009 10:53 pm ET


I noticed that you will be having Joan Rivers and Kathy Griffin on your show next. Joan Rivers has been saying very distasteful things about Michael and you mentioned being a good friend of the Jackson family. Please do not allow jokes or negative comments about Michael to come out of this womans mouth. Please stand up for your friend and think about his children of she does go down to that level.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

Did you guys see Geraldo?

lex   August 9th, 2009 11:20 pm ET

yea i did lori

Toni   August 9th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

Hello! 🙂 Lots of news, where do I start ? I am convinced now that it was not Michael making the O2 announcement. But sadly, I do think he is gone. He was not the kind of person to do fake his death.

Veronica Crawford   August 9th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

Thank you Jermaine for showing your love for MJ's and The Jacksons concerned fans. Let me shout this out while I'm blogging...THANK GOD THAT YOUR MOM GOT THE KIDS!!!!!

I'm so excited about your new project tribute2009 that will provide aid to and support many charities–some you've mentioned which include Feed the Children, Larry King's, as well as Jermaine's Foundation. I would like to learn more about Jermaine's foundation Earthcare since my dream is to be a philanthropist. I am inspired by the entire Jackson family, and the love you all have shared with the world. I am greatly inspired by Jermaine's big heart, how he has chose to keep alive what MJ worked so hard to teach us. I'm going online to checkout the website that you announced–; but, I want to do more. I would like to know how you can help me be a part of your current mission to continue the work of MJ as a humanitarian. God Bless You all!!!

Carrie from SF BAY, CA   August 9th, 2009 11:23 pm ET

Can somebody please tell me why Michael Jackson didn’t have children the old fashion way? If he had you wouldn’t have all these men coming out claiming to be the father of his children. Last count there are at least three that could possibly be the biological father of these children.

It is very sad that he depended on his so called friends to impregnate Debbie Rowe, and the mother of Blanket with their sperm in stead of his own. This story is getting stranger by the day.

Lori   August 9th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

I don't know Carrie, I've never had the nerve to ask anyone, let alone Michael Jackson, information regarding the conception of their children, because, frankly it isn't any of my business.

Toni   August 9th, 2009 11:40 pm ET

A few of us were discussing lasy night and this morning how we are a little upset now after thinking about Jermaines interview. It is suppose to be a tribute for Michael right? But, I feel it is too soon for the Jacksons to sing together without Michael.I love the family {dont get me wrong}, but Michael WAS the Jacksons. HE is who everyone longed to see when they sang together. So I think for them to sing together this soon, without Michael, would be too sad to watch. Then, only One of Michaels charitys is mentioned, and not his favorite { Heal The World}. One was Jermaines...okay....But why in the heck was Larrys charity in there? And promoting his wife was the BIG announcement. I just think by the end of the interview, it wasnt about Michael anymore. Is this going to be a tribute for Michael, or a career jumpstart off of his precious name, for Larrys wife and Jermaine? When Larry asked his wife why she wanted to do this, she did not say one word about doing it for Michael. Anyway, it hasnt sat well with me since Ive had the time to think about it. And I agree something should have been done in the USA. Has Michael ever mentioned Vienna?

Lori   August 9th, 2009 11:43 pm ET

I think I heard something on G-man that there cannot be any JAckson concerts until after the release of the rehersal film. And I also thought they said there were going to be 2 movies. I am going to have to watch it again and get it clear.

SuzieCanada   August 10th, 2009 12:02 am ET

Toni, I completely agree with you. The person who made the announcement was NOT Michael. However, this doesn't mean that Michael did not die 😦 unfortunately.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 12:02 am ET

So they announced on Geraldo that Mrs. J is cotesting the will tomorrow morning. I hope it works out for her. A Jackson member should be on ther. I kind of hope if Katherine does get on that she will have Janet fill her seat after her death.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:04 am ET

ANybody see Nicole today?

Toni   August 10th, 2009 12:10 am ET

Just for those of you that dont know, Carrie, has done nothing but slander Michael and his children for weeks now. He was racist because he only wanted to be wht, only wanted wht kids, she is obsessed at who the bio dads are and has said some very cruel things about him. Just thought id give you the heads up. Do with it as you wish.

Yes Linda.....he's really gone. 😦

Carrie from SF BAY, CA   August 10th, 2009 12:11 am ET

You are right it is none of my business how his children were conceived. The problem is his children will go thru life hearing about these rumor of how they were conceived and who there biological fathers are.
His children are going to have some very real issue to deal with because of the actions , or in this case non-action of there legal father. I hope they too will not end up on drugs to kill the pain of the actions of there legal father. I do pray for his children.

MARY DAVIS   August 10th, 2009 12:15 am ET


Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:15 am ET

Maybe we should all just believe that MJ is the biological and legal father. It is the right thing to do for the children. I do not understand why everyone continues to speculate on this issue. Legal paternity has been decided, it does not matter who comes out of the woodwork because it isn't going to change anything.

SuzieCanada   August 10th, 2009 12:26 am ET

Does anyone have any theories as to why the Coroner's office are dragging their feet on the release of the tox report/autopsy results? There is no way on earth that they still don't know what killed Michael. This is ridiculous! Something is going on that we're not aware of. I know you don't know, but can somebody please throw some theories at me?

Mara   August 10th, 2009 12:26 am ET

I remember her Toni she called everyone Kool-Aid Drinkers...

Lois – thanks

Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:29 am ET

They are not releasing it because they are still making investigations. It will come out when they are ready. This could be a complex case. They are making sure they are doing everything by the book because many many people could eventually go down in this matter.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:32 am ET

The forum moderator is at work,,,keeping the forum safe for one and all

Toni   August 10th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Yes, they are disappearing Suzie. Where in Canada are you? Im in good old Sask. 🙂

Toni   August 10th, 2009 12:37 am ET

Lori, Jermaine must have Nicole on a hot date tonight. 😀 Keepin her out late.

SuzieCanada   August 10th, 2009 12:40 am ET

Hi Toni, I'm in Ontario ... more specifically, in the capital region 🙂

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 12:42 am ET

Good evening fans. Just got i from work. Question for Carrie. Why do you keep trippin on Micheals kids. What difference does it make. Maybe you should take a look at their faces from the memorial service. Prince especially has his eyes and all three of those children have his chin. For God sake leave those children alone. Those kids are innocent by standers and didn't ask for any of this stuff going on. Leave them out of this. I have 3 children from a black man and one of them have freckles and red hair. You cannot determine the genes children carry. They carry dna from ancestors from ages ago. That's how it works when having children. You can carry genes from ancestors for many years. Please leave those children alone

Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:47 am ET

That's Jermaine-he just a little bit scandolous. I can't beleive not one peep out of Nicole all day....

barbara   August 10th, 2009 12:49 am ET

there is apart of me wish they would leave michael jackson alone, but this will continue as long as it makes news . I hope all famous people will learn one thing from this always make sure your will and wishes are clearly documented on a yearly basis

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 12:49 am ET

Hey fans alittle info for you. My daughter and I are taking a vaction next week. We will be going to Indiana. She has made a build a bear for Micheal and his children. We will be visiting the house Micheal began at. We will also be leaving all 4 bears with some prayers we have written for him and his kids. If there are any of you that would like to have a prayer or poem or anything to be be placed with his bears, please let me know. I will give you my email so that I can print them off and take it with us. We will be taking many pictures and our video camera and I will be delighted to share it with you when I return. I live in Wisconsin. Indiana is not that far from here. We are very excited about our trip. This offer os only for the real MJ fans. Not for anyone that disrespects Micheal

Toni   August 10th, 2009 12:53 am ET

So, Mrs. J is contesting the will tomorrow. Do any of you think it is odd that the stipulation in the will says " anyone who contests the will is withdrawn", right? But Katherine and the children are the ONLY beneficiaries.
Then, Larry asked Jermaine about the will Friday night, and he said the same thing, that anyone who contests the will is not following Michaels wishes!?
And on Geraldo tonight.....AEG got their life insurance money!!!!!
And last but not least, do you think AEG offered to sponsor for the Vienna concert?

Mara   August 10th, 2009 12:56 am ET

On G's show it was reported that the Executors were paid 3M by the Insurance Co. and that AEG denies they ever received the Doctor's Report for MJs physical.

Thank you Patty that's really nice of you but I went to CALI the day after he passed to pay my respects to Neverland and Encino. I wanted to go to the Memorial but didn't get a ticket via email. =( Nice of you to take time on your vacation to go to Gary.

sunday roberts   August 10th, 2009 12:56 am ET

jermaine so sorry about Michael,s death and we will always miss and love him. I have something to say the only problem i have is if this tribute is for Michael why is it in your name it should be in michael,s name. Other than that i wish you all the best.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:00 am ET

How sweet of you. I would love to do that. Hopefully when you post your email CNN will leave it on long enough to let us copy it. Plus my computer is still really slow tonight. I dont know what the problem is.

conniechen92   August 10th, 2009 1:01 am ET

I am a rising senior and I was diagnosed with lupus 5 years ago. MJ's death inspired me as a fellow sufferer of this disease. By keeping his condition a secret, he lost the chane to advocate for this under-funded disease. This is an illness that is still treated with drugs approved in the days of Dwight D. Eisenhower more than half a century ago. The side effects of these outdated drugs often outweigh the pain of lupus itself. Jackson’s fame, influence, and wealth could have promised hope, widespread sympathy, and ultimately an enhanced quality of life for many lupus patients. Had he found the courage and devotion to share his struggle with lupus, he might have comforted heartbroken families and inspired all who suffer from this deadly demon. Instead, he allowed lupus to steal even his potential to help fellow sufferers, leaving him shackled as much by lupus’s rarity as by its debilitating effects.

Demons like lupus haunt the lives of so many undeserving individuals. In a world where we struggle in our search for identity, what truly defines us is never the demon, but how we choose to confront it. We can only hope that the next celebrity to be diagnosed with lupus will take a closer look at their potential to make a positive impact on the lives of fellow sufferers.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 1:02 am ET

I don't think MRs. Katherine is contesting the will tommorow. I think the are going in so the judge can sign off on some of the "deals" the special administrator's have been making. He left them in charge for 60 days. I don't think the Judge made a decision on whether she can challenge it without incurring the no-contest clause.

AEG has not got their insurance money. There are some BIG issues here with Michael's IME for that insurance policy. AEG could be in trouble in the physical claims MJ was healthy, yet was proven to have a known drug problem. AEG needs the tox report to come back clean and cause of death to be natural causes, or they may forfeit the payout.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:05 am ET

Wasnt it AEG that said he passed the physical with flying colors? But I thought Geraldo said AEG got $60 ml

John   August 10th, 2009 1:07 am ET

maybe michael had the conception done by way of donors because he didn't want them to have vitiliago. Good opinion. Maybe he couldn' concieve. maybe it was against his earlier bible teachings. The kids are his and nobody can take them or claim them, except Debbie can do something but she will compromise that moeny she gets every month.

AMELIA   August 10th, 2009 1:11 am ET

Hello JERMAINE Great interview about your beloved brother Michael
Very nice to hear that Michael was rised as a JEHOVAH's witness.
The strongest and faithful people in the planet. I know that because they preach about JESUS without fear and they teach THE BIBLE
I am 51 and let me tell you JERMAINE that MICHAEL WAS a HERO and a good person for the world. The evil killed him to cause the pain and sorrow to your family and his children. Honest to say:
JEHOVAH knows who is who, and for the future He has better plans
LOVE and Hugs for THE JACKSON FAMILY, and please read THE BIBLE to the Michaels's kids. This is the right thing to do.
Love Larry King charming style and his energy! Good job!

John   August 10th, 2009 1:12 am ET


Mara   August 10th, 2009 1:12 am ET

Yes but I think the 60M was for the 3 hr film they are releasing in October. The Insurance was only 3M I believe.

Lynn Arvai   August 10th, 2009 1:14 am ET

I really do not think it is fair that they are having the tribute so far away. I am one of M.J's biggest fans and I can't not go to his tribute cause I do not have the money. I am a servere diabetic I can not aford my insulin and go to the tribute. I would love to be there. I miss Michael Jackson Alot. He was my hero. Not just because he was famous cause he gave me the spirit to fight and go thru my shots that I have to take every day. I wish I could go to be there and be separative for his family. Anyways that is all I have to say. Thank you Lynn

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:16 am ET

Last I heard on Fri was that No check was going to be cut for AEG or anyone until autopsy reports are reported. This is because if there are an chances of drugs in his system the insurance policy is null and void. If I heard it correctly Katherine is not contesting the will, she just wants a seat at the table and to be kept informed of everything. If she is allowed this, it will keep everyone on track that would try to screw or extort the estate. Toni it is my pleasure to do this. I would be delighted to leave anything there that anyone wishes. We all loved Micheal this could be somewhat a way to help with our greiving.

Paula Warren   August 10th, 2009 1:19 am ET

Upon Michael's death, I was in a third world country; everyone seemed to be mourning his death; people asked me how I felt. Upon returning home, I saw all the interviews on CNN and watched the funeral. I've learned so much more about him and his whole family. I have so much respect and passion for what he has done for the world and humanity. Now, when I see him on video, I have a deeper sense of this man; he's not just a talented singer and dancer; he's a man who changed the world with his magic touch of everything he had–his money, his word, his song, his touch, his dance, and his soul.

Germaine seems to have the ability to reveal the truth and the love, and share that with us. I feel more connected to Michael Jackson's true spirit than ever before.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:20 am ET

I just think it is sad for Mrs. J, because all she wants is the other executor seat. Michael had been including her in all his business deals recently. Unfortunately, its an old will. However, Prince will be able to take control at age 21. A Jackson family member should be on there until then. She is just so worried about how his estate is going to be handled, and I dont blame her. This was her son that she watched suffer thruogh so much for so long, and get used by so many people. I think she is just like Michael, not knowing who to trust. God help her for what she is having to deal with. I think they are taking advantage of her because of her age.

Michael made alot of annonymous donations for alot of things. He could have very well been making donations for Lupus. He gave so so much. Please dont condemn him for it when he could have very well been annonymously contributing.

Atkins ReLouis   August 10th, 2009 1:20 am ET

Michael Jackson's body will be placed in a cyronic suspension, confirmed by German Doctor Gunther von Hagens. Hagens has declared "an agreement is in place to plastinate the King of Pop." Is this the reason why Jermaine and other family members of Michael Jackson have not spoken yet of where his buriel, cremation, or whatever will take place and where? It has been said that it was Michael Jackson's final wish was to be placed in cyronic suspension so he will be able to come back if death ever occured too early in his life. His body will be plastinated and placed next to his pet monkey, Bubbles who has also been plastinated a number of years ago

This makes me question; how many people (actors, singers,etc.) have agreed to be placed in cryonic suspension?

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:22 am ET

The 80mil was paid by Columbia pictures for the rights of his rehearsal tapes. AEG is becoming filthy rich off Micheals death. That is why I am still very suspicious of them.

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:24 am ET

Ooops correction 60mil. Toni so very well said. You are probaly right. I would'nt doubt it if he was donating cuz that's just how Micheal was

Mara   August 10th, 2009 1:25 am ET

Oh I thought the film was going to Sony.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:27 am ET

Patty, I got it. What day are you leaving? I'm only 1 hr from the border. I might send something to you to take. Not sure yet what I'll do. I am so excited, Thank you so much. 🙂

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:28 am ET

Atkins. I beleive Bubbles is still very much alive and at a zoo with other gorillas. I believe they said he is 29 years old and could live to 60

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:29 am ET

Toni you are very welcome.. We are leaving Saturday Morning. Glad you were able to get it.

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:32 am ET

I see they have already removed it. That's ok I can post it again whenever someone would like it. Toni if you do decide to send somehting with us, I will be sure to take pictures of it for you.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:33 am ET

Yeah, Sony bought the rights for $60m

Atkins, get a freakin life. Bubbles is still alive ina damn zoo!!!! God where do these people come out of at night, for Gods sake!!!!

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:37 am ET

You know what they say. The FREAKS come out at night.... LOL

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:39 am ET

Michael HATED sony before he died. I really hated to see them get it. Looks like we lost Lori.

And Atkins, what would a German doctor know about Michael Jackson for Heavens sake??

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:42 am ET

This is one of the latest updates I recieved. I get on everyday from MJfan club. There's no date set of realease yet as far a I knowCourt Filings Detail MJ Rehearsal Film

MJ(5-8-2009) If the probate judge in the Los Anegels (USA) court approves the deal by Monday, a full-length motion picture filled with footage of Michael Jackson's last rehearsals for the This Is It shows in London (UK) could be released soon. The judge has scheduled a hearing for Monday to see if Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine, has any objections.

A redacted agreement filed on Friday and released on Tuesday details the film project. The agreement is between concert promoter AEG Live, one of Michael Jackson's companies, Columbia Pictures and others. The movie would come with all the elements of a major studio release: product tie-ins, merchandising and even a director's cut and special editions.

The contract states Columbia Pictures paid $60 million for rights to the project. The movie will have to meet the standards for a PG rating and not run any longer than 150 minutes. The contract also states that the movie can't include any footage that is considered to paint Michael Jackson in a bad light.

The deal was negotiated by the two men who are administering Michael Jackson's estate, longtime attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain. It calls for Michael Jackson's company to receive 90 percent of the film's profits, with the remainder going to AEG Live.

The deadline for the judge's approval isn't the only tight timeline the project faces. According to the contract, Columbia must screen the movie for Michael Jackson's representatives no later than Oct. 2.

MJ's Executors cashed in on 3M life insurance b/f autopsy. (that is what's flashing on the screen on G's show) I assume b/f stands for before? Not sure.

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:43 am ET

I don't understand why AEG should get any of the profits. They already made 60 mil. GREED!!!

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 1:48 am ET

I am not saiing,MJ didnt died,but the questions around it are veri strange.

Toni   August 10th, 2009 1:49 am ET

Have you noticed, they always leave wacky comments, but dont stick around to hear the remarks? Sound like chickens to me. 😀

I better go to bed, plus my computer is so slow. I'll have to see what the problem is tomorrow. Patty,have you been on here much? We are usually on every evening. It really helps with the grieving. There is me, Lori,Nicole, Jacquelyn, lex, Linda NY, and now Mara, Stu Hungary, Belgium, etc. Alot of us. Just tell them you know me. 😀

Goodnight. 🙂

Kaliliah Wilson   August 10th, 2009 1:50 am ET

I watched a youtube video of Michael Jackson's 45th birthday celebration. . In this video, he mentioned an organization called Go For Your Dreams. I would like to know more information about this program. I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and I also appreciate his efforts to improve the world.

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:53 am ET

Toni. Yes I try to get on here everynight. I believe you were gone when I came on last night... I usually am at work till later so I'm sure most are sleeping. I beleive I chatted with Linda last night for a few. I'll be back tomorrow. This seems to help a little. Good night everyone.

Patty Anderson   August 10th, 2009 1:54 am ET

René   August 10th, 2009 2:42 am ET

My siblings and I attended The Jackson Five in concert in Houston - our first. We were so proud to have our seats in the center of the 12th row from the stage. An amazing show!
God bless you, dear Michael, may you take your rest now in God's loving arms and peace and blessings to your family and all who were close to you...we will never see another like you.
Thank you, Michael, thank you for your amazing gift to the world, our generation and generations to come! And, thank you, Jermaine, for working to carry his legacy on.

Melody   August 10th, 2009 2:57 am ET

I 100% agree with Jermaine, Michael did so much, but people would just think the other that he does nothing he got botox like he said I hate the jack-o- crap

please get these jacksons and others off the tv they hide from larrys questions and don't tell the truth.its all about money!! now thjackson will go to UK to sing ..oh how sweet or should i say they go to uk to make some money out of michaels death?? now that sounds more like the truth. MJ was a good singer and gave so much but then so did john lennon and many more like them. but we never had all this crap after they died. please larry dig dig deep and get some truth from these people or don't have them on the show if they are just going to lie and hide from the truth eg: who the father of the kids is? as i sad its about money because if they said the truth they know they would be loseing controw and money. as for joe jackson he should not be asked anything the man is a fool. i like cnn but larry king is not so good a good intervewer digs and gets answers all i see larry do is agree and move on. dig dig and find the truth

Ellen Zee   August 10th, 2009 5:59 am ET

Hello Larry,
I want to share my thought,s and feeling,s about Michael Jackson.
When you look at his life and what he did,
He was named after an angel,lived like an angel with all he did for the world.
But it is a fact that nobody understood him,he was so pure and good.
he was a innocent,lonely soul.
and i hope that his children will stay with his famely,because now all this money seeking people say i,m their father.
This children have known their father, and that was Michael jackson.
And i want to tell them,your father loved you more than life,so please don.t believe all those lies about him.With all my love, Ellen Z ee

I have grown up with and have always loved the Jackson 5, Michael, Janet...and the entire family. The only problem that I have with them is how they appear injured by the press; however, they don't tell the truth all the time and they set themselves up. Jermaine – Michael's two children come from two white biological parents. If you think that the world buys the fact that those are Michael's 1/2 African American children...then I am Bubbles the Monkey's mother! If there is something that you don't want the public to know, simply respond that "you don't have any comment about the mattter". It doesn't matter if they are biologically his anyway... they were legally his children and they ARE his children. I think Michael was terrific and extremely talented. Let's focus on that.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 9:15 am ET

@Mariau, I don't see the difference between my links to 2 articles here and the one LKL posted himself about Diane Dimond. You did not bother to comment then, so don't attack me on my links.

Posting a link does not mean I agree with everything.

And as a lawyer myself, I always try to take a peek into people's mind. Like I said, in order to make a strategy, one must know what the enemy thinks and does.

The fact is that MJ was overdosed with medication for pain, insomnia and depression. I agree with many posters here that Jermaine should not be in denial about this.

Miah G. Lakke   August 10th, 2009 9:21 am ET

Finally some clarity. I see what he meant let them think what they want then you stay on top. But things do get out of hand.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 9:28 am ET

@Stu, I do believe it was Michael. There are a lot of unanswered questions, that's for sure, but Michael wanted to make a comback but didn't make it.

BTW, the clip saying there were not real tears for the family, I find offensive. Paris was the ultimate proof this family lost a dear member.

Arnetta Barker   August 10th, 2009 9:33 am ET

First of all i would like to thank Larry King for the coverage he has provided to the public regarding Michael Jackson's early demise. Unfortunately while Michael was alive, he did not receive the positive coverage he deserved. Michael was the greatest entertainer of our time and i have never lived in a world without him, his loss was devastating to a lot of people. I understand and appreciate the coverage you have provided Mr. King, I could not find any other station that provided what you have. Thanks again.

Maggie Picot   August 10th, 2009 9:34 am ET

I just want to thank the Jackson family for sharing this wonderful human being with the world. I loved Michael and his unique music. As far as his brother , I believe his love for his brother is bigger than the small percentage of people that believed that his fake about his brother tragic dead, or that he wants to get a little bit of fame. People is okay. I hope he does and I also hope he gets to perform again and if this gives him a push well let it be, go for it Germaine. Michael you may want to send a little support to your brother from above.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 9:35 am ET

Elisheva,yes,and its drive me crasy,and i gess,its drive every body crasy,thats why peples make up stories.But i am not sure,that guy is Michael in London.Hes smile is complitle diferent.Hies mouth is complitle diferent.And i was voch an other video on youtube,and on the same day Michale look like on this London announcement,and on the stage look,like the realy MJ from 90-s.How he can look 2 whay on the same day?

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 9:39 am ET

I dont know the tears,i couldnt see any tears from the family and cry,only Paris in the end.The guy say,she just act,and she didnt have tears eider.I dont think,a kid act this good in front ot 1000-s of peaples.

Meddie   August 10th, 2009 9:48 am ET

Yes SubanAllah what is it with this video? I also, after I have seen it looks great both difference on his teeth and hand? I did not know about this before I read this in here .. This is weird!

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 9:51 am ET

For me he dont look like hem self at all.Hes face,hes talk,voice,hes acting is all wrong.Even my 8 years old son said,he dont act like MJ,and i didnt told hem,that i think,its not hem.It was just hes reaction.

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 9:57 am ET

Good Day All,

Rhonda, What a Beautiful Tribute site you and your daughter have given!!! Please keep up the great work-nice selection of songs as well 🙂 Need to go back and watch the videos–Big Hand to you – thanks 🙂

After I signed off last night, I remember this Dr. Hagen. Isn't he the one who makes an art form out of displaying actual bodies? I believe he is. After I saw his pic, I remember there was something on tv about him a few months ago. You know, the family would NOT ever allow something like that to happen. What he does is beyond just freezin cryogenically- He displays bodies and poses them -well lets say a decedent was a runner-This Dr. would take the actual body and pose it as a runner and it is suspended in a glass container--Brings a whole new meaning to the name Dr. Frankenstein.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 10:05 am ET

@Stu, I see what you mean, but I think MJ was wearing wigs from time to time.

TL/Huntington Beach   August 10th, 2009 10:05 am ET

After watching those Hoax videos the puzzle starts to look a little better in my mind. There was one rehearsal video that Michael appeared to be healthy and was linked with his last rehearsal which through me off. Everything that was told to the public by the media and their guests lied by omission in my opinion.

Yes, it is Michael in the videos. It appears that he could have been dying of cancer and that is why he has been anorexic. The family probably knew and was somewhat prepared for his death. Conrad Murray was probably hired to ease him through his last days.

Leaving for work now.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel August 10th, 2009 9:28 am ET
I think what MariaU is saying that It's bad enough that LKL post these articles on here and that we his fans should not do the same. As I said yesterday, I think by doing that we are helping these vultures in the MJ bashing by ust giving these stories legs. We all loved Michael and I think that we feel that we have to protect his reputation since he is not able to do that himself. I also understant that you post them on here to show how the media just will not stop.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:09 am ET


What Tribute page is Mary Lee referring to?

crovat eugenia   August 10th, 2009 10:12 am ET

I dont understand why thei still speak badly about Michael? leave him to rest in peace and his children let have a good life , because whatever you say the know that had one father and was Michael. And i am happy to know that Jeremaine continue to do what Michael was doing for many years the world needs good people!

conniechen92   August 10th, 2009 10:13 am ET

Toni, I'm not condemning him. All I'm saying is he could have used his influence to advocate for his fellow sufferers. Even though he might have contributed anonymously, he could have taken it one step further by speaking out.

Lisa S   August 10th, 2009 10:16 am ET


Michael was, like many many black persons, both celebrities and others, wearing wigs. You must understand that both michael and his brothers have kinky hair. So even if it was him it could have been him in two hairstyles the same day. HAving different hairstyles in one show wouldnt even be a problem.

However, how do we know that the clips are from the same day? And if one of them are not Michael how do we know which is "the right" one? When was the last time your saw Michael before "this is it" announcement? How do you know that it was "the real" michael? MAybe the one you say before was a copy and this was the real michael.

Also remember that illnesses can change the appearance and make you look very undifferent to your normal self.

To you all! I should recommend you not to watch all this stuff and read all this "new" that have vague sources or no source at all becaue very little is true. I know who the fathers of Michael children are, i mean that is not too difficult to figure out but does it matter? The one they saw as their father is gone forever and it doesnt help them with the speculatiion. Nothing will change.

Lisa S   August 10th, 2009 10:20 am ET

Peoople in here complains about JErmaine being in denial. Well, he has the right to be. It is part of the process and we must let him take the time he needs for that.

But were are the others? why do they only send him out? It would be really nice to hear the others memories of Michael, especially the younger brothers.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:23 am ET

Yes,but to chanege a wig its take an hour.Do you think,he was changeing on the same day at work?And for me hes mouts is just totaly diferent on the announcement,and there is no surgery can change the teeth line.And i never see hem act so stupid.

Mara   August 10th, 2009 10:26 am ET

Dont forget the "walk" I've never seen MJ bounce when he walked.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:31 am ET

Lisa S!I understand,if he is vering wig,but i dont understand,why the change on the same day.And not only the wig,but hes face look strange ,whenn he have the trait wig,and look like the realy MJ face,whenn he have the the other wig.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:34 am ET

Yes,is strange,that only Jermaine talk.And hes father too.I actualy like,whenn Joe Jackson talk.Its more realistik,he is saiing wath he think,and wat he feel is true.But i heard,that Janet was so close to Michael,and thay are so similar.I would like to hear from her.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:34 am ET

Lisa S
I agree with you, I don't why some people feel they have to be hard so hard on Jermaine. Michael was his little brother, he is in pain. What is wrong with him being in denial. Denial is part of the grieving process. PLease, lets not start picking and dissecting everything Jermaine Jackson says.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:35 am ET

Yes,the walk was very wierd.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:39 am ET

can you post those videos you are referring to on our blog.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:40 am ET

Is that true,that Uri Geller said,that he know,MJ is not the biological father?It was freeking me out.That guy is a chiter,thay was making tests on hem in the old times,and thay was pruve,that he dont have any speachel abelety,he was yous som acid...And this guy said,he was close friende to MJ?And now saiing this?And wath,if its true.Still,he was the legal and loveing father of the kids.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 10:44 am ET

Linda,wich ones are you talking about?The moderator non stop deleting tham.The one,that show hem with 2 look in the same day ,you roll litlebit up,its only cam in link.The other one is litlebit more up,whenn thay show pictures and videos of the annoncement MJ and the "real" mJ.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:44 am ET

Mara and Stu –yes the walk was very weird–MJ's walk was very graceful-slow and upright–and Stu I have to agree with you about the voice–Maybe there is a very logical explanation for all this.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:46 am ET

Stu–Yes –the one with the two looks in the same day--Please post them on our blog-on yahoo–thanks

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:51 am ET


Uri Geller is full of crap–I don't believe anything he says–He is the same on that got paid $500,000-for selling out Michael to Martin Bashir. I don't even know how he has the nerve to come on televison or talk to any reporter about Michael. He needs to just go away.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:53 am ET

I mean can you please put on our blog on yahoo. You did sign up right?

Luda   August 10th, 2009 10:57 am ET

Carrie: Can somebody please tell me why Michael Jackson didn’t have children the old fashion way?

Here's your answer Carrie,

"Just because you read it in a magazine
Or see it on the TV screen
Don't make it factual, actual
You're so damn disrespectable"

Tabloid Junkie by Michael Jackson

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 10:59 am ET

Stu–come over to the Jermain Jackson live on LKL tonight blog–

Mara   August 10th, 2009 11:00 am ET

Linda how often do you go on Facebook? I sent you a friend request.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:03 am ET

Morning ladies.

Stu-the "Announcement was in March. The reharsal pictures were in June. Not the same day. I still don't think it was Michael in London though – because of the walk and the mannerisms.

Believe nothing you read in the tabloids. Just like in the old days when they printed all that stuff–its just publicity-the more fantastical the better because it sells papers. People will believe anything about Michael, because he WAS Michael and eccentric was one of his trademarks.

It's gonna be years before this all gets sorted, you guys need to pace yourself or you will burn out before its over. 🙂

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 11:09 am ET

I said it already some time ago on Jacquelyn's nice We love MJ-blog, and on LKL that denial is part of the process. I was fiercly attacked for it then, but I am glad more people start to acknowledge that now.

Luda   August 10th, 2009 11:10 am ET

And on Geraldo tonight…..AEG got their life insurance money!!!!!

AEG got the money?
Aren't they suppose to wait for the reason of death???
cause if they declare Overdose it's not supposed to be covered...

mariau   August 10th, 2009 11:11 am ET

hi stu, linda..
did you check his hands?
it's quite different

floss from Philly   August 10th, 2009 11:14 am ET

Enough already with Jermain – he's in it for the fame and money it's all about him no wonder Michael didn't get along with family and didn't want to tour with them, they milked him for years

Mara   August 10th, 2009 11:15 am ET

Good Morning – yes pace is good..I already got busted for breaking a date last night so that I can read everything because sometimes it takes a long time to read everything and then it takes time to put my two cents in because the blog runs slow and don't forget the programs that come on. It's a learning experience. lol

Mara   August 10th, 2009 11:19 am ET

Does anyone know what happened to Jacquelyn? My teenager enjoyed reading her comments.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 11:23 am ET

I wish MJ had had the opportunity to counsel an unknown G'd fearing person, not Farrakhan, Chopra, Boteach or any other spiritual famous leader. But somebody unknown and close to G'd, with much wisdom, patience and dedication.

Halperin says now MJ read the Bible during the 12 hours before his death, among other horrible things he did, and since others say he rehearsed the night of the 24th, it is probably false again, but I truly had wished he would have had a unknown mentor.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 11:23 am ET

Lori,i know,thay was not on the same day.I am talking about on the rehearshel he olso looked sometimes,like on the announcement,and on the stage he looked like in 90-s.

mariau   August 10th, 2009 11:24 am ET

to lisa s, i absolutely agree with you

hi stu, linda..
did you check his hands?
it's quite different

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:24 am ET

Luda: No. AEG did not get the insurance money yet. They did make a deal for 60 million for the rehersal footage; but that is pending approval today in court. There are all sorts of potential issues for AEG regarding the tour insurance, including Michael's original physical and now alleged drug use. So I do not think they will see any insurance proceeds any time soon, and they need the cause of death to be natural causes or accident and nothing related to drug use.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 11:28 am ET

Hi Maria!
Yes,i cheked that.Its very diferent.The lines are changeing on the hands by years,but not this much,and the fingers...The annoncement one finger is not strait.But not only the hand,but everithing is diferent.Can a person change this much???

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 11:29 am ET

OMG...I think it was Rhonda's website-now wondering if it is Jacquelyns'–so many names to remember-sorry if I got the name wrong!

Ah, if Doc Murray thought Michael had cancer, Proponol would not be the drug of choice, Morphine would be.

Stu, it does make one wonder about the hairpiece change. Sort of leads me to believe that maybe some of those videos were not shot in one day. got to remmeber he wasn't rehersing 10, 12, 16 hrs a day – these I think were 6 hour episodes – It could be possible, but why change the hair a couple of times a day just for rehersal? I still think all those rehersals were just too pushed together right before July's concert date, that was eventually pushed back– I mean the announcement was made in March, AEG kept going with it without a 2nd physical-Just doesn't seem enough time was devoted for such a big tour.

Linda, THANK YOU for the comment about Uri Geller. don't know what age all of you are, but way way back in the early 70's and maybe as far back as the late 60's, this Uri guys big claim to fame was bending spoons and making clocks stop. He was on every tv talk show, in every magazine...then lo and behold, someone exposed him as a fraud-he is just a 'glorified' magician who conned the public big time! His career has been in the gutter for years, but now he too is riding Michaels' coattails by coming out with all this stuff. What friend does all these things ? A shabby, no good friend, that's who.

As for Jermaine. I guess it comes down to what he feels is right for him. He doesn't have to answer to his family, grown man and all, he saw an opportunity-that's all I'll say on that. I do find it strange tho' that all these various grandchildren are living at Havenhurst-the place is big, but not that big.

Luda   August 10th, 2009 11:29 am ET


Michael did talk about his disease like vitiligo, but no one would believe him... but he was not going to justify himself all the time. He was a man of action, so instead of trying to convince people of his diseases with words he would act. He would give to help others suffering...
I can see that you didn't understand what he has done to help....

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:30 am ET

I think that allot of the rehersal footage is staged to "prove" that MJ was healthy and ready for the 50 concerts. Because that is the image that AEG wanted to project of him.

Luda   August 10th, 2009 11:34 am ET

Thanks Lori, it clarify things about AEG.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:35 am ET

It all almost seems like a pre-planned event. They have all the rehersal footage. Is that common practice? It was like they were always preparing a fall-back plan. And why is no one talking? Why such an iron clad confidentiallity agreement. Something is hinky in this situation, just don't know what yet.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:38 am ET

I remember Uri Geller back in the day when everyone thought he had the "power". Just another fake. Why did Michael hang out with all these people? That boy needed some normal friends

Luda   August 10th, 2009 11:39 am ET

Have someone notice all the marks on the hand of the March announcement???

mariau   August 10th, 2009 11:43 am ET

stu..yes. did you see that??? ohh this is not funny anymore..
and the way he talks.. it's really different.. maybe because it's too hard for him to replicate the voice of michael..

Luda   August 10th, 2009 11:47 am ET

Why did Michael hang out with all these people? That boy needed some normal friends

Well, that's my question: was he really free? Wasn't he controled like his father said....

Didn't someone here said that Dileo was once with mafia....

That comeback, was it Michael's idea or the promoters approached him...

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:48 am ET

Arrr. This blog must have a virus attached to it. It keeps bouncing me out and my security program starts running.

Anyway, the pictures are interesting, but you cannot trust them. Don't know who took them, or if they have been photo shopped. I think them most reliable is the actual video showing Michael walking, talking and moving. That is what really gives me pause. And he was 2 hours late. You'd think if he was really excited about doing the shows he'd be on time for the announcement

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 11:51 am ET

Yes, Luda, I noticed the marks on the hand-marks like a guy would have from working around the house. I also noticed when people/ fans, would scream I Love you, Michael, he did not say I Love You too as he usually did. the voice seems muddled-I thought at first maybe he took a steroid like Cortisone for arthritis, that would deepen the voice a little, but that shrug also at the end just didn't ring true to form – its not something Michael would do, and the shirt is old, like you said about the hairstyle, from the 90's. A lot of his coustumes went to Auction Houses – the band on the arm is on too tight- I think Stu found the answer with that other video link about Casanova....

Lori   August 10th, 2009 11:55 am ET

But why would a big company like AEG get involved in what, for want of a better word, could be fradulent behavior??

Allure   August 10th, 2009 11:56 am ET

"I remember Uri Geller back in the day when everyone thought he had the “power”. Just another fake. Why did Michael hang out with all these people? That boy needed some normal friends."

I absolutely agree! But I think at a certain point in life you cannot distinguish anymore the normal from the others....
By the way: why did Uri Geller cut the contact with MJ in 2005?? I thought they were "real" friends, but he wasn't there......(in MJ's darkest hour!)

Carrie from SF BAY, CA   August 10th, 2009 11:59 am ET

Good morning Wing-Nuts. Just so you know I only started blogging on this site less than a week ago. So, Toni I haven’t been slandering Michael and his kids for weeks. GET IT RIGHT WHY DO YOU.

You people kill me. Its people like you Wing-Nuts that enable MJ to become a addict in the first place. Oh he is so great, he’s an angel, he is the greatest. That is exactl why all these doctors felt and so that kept giving him all those drugs. You ever notice how many doctors MJ was close to. You know why because they were his drug dealers.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 12:01 pm ET

Allure– MJ dumped Uri after Uri convinced Michael to do the interview with Martin Bashir

Luda   August 10th, 2009 12:02 pm ET

Lori, each time I ldownoad the page I receive a message of EI that tells me there is a script that might slow down the page....

Luda   August 10th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

EI= I meant Internet Explorer...

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 10th, 2009 12:09 pm ET

@Allure, on YouTube you can somewhere find a dcoumentary made by Uri Geller and aired in the Uk last week.

He said the relationship died down after the Bashir interview. He also showed a lot of private footage of him and MJ in London.

Allure   August 10th, 2009 12:10 pm ET


I didn't know that, oh my god! As I already said, you guys in the US have a lot more information than we have here.
Thank you

Lisa S   August 10th, 2009 12:11 pm ET


Same happens to me.

Maybe htere is problems with the page and maybe that is the reson why they have no new entries...?

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 12:12 pm ET

I am 32,but i remember,who is Uri.He is a mentalist.He was make crasy the clock,and turn the spounes.How i know,the CIA was testing hem,and thay finde out how he was cheating.Now he is makeng tv shows,he is findeing who is next Uri Geller by a game (good money makeing).How i heared,the show is full of cheatings,but it was cool! :)Anyway,he is just a lier,and he was alvais makeing big mony out of lies.

Allure   August 10th, 2009 12:13 pm ET

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel:
Thanks a lot!
My working day is over, "see" you tomorrow

Dana   August 10th, 2009 12:16 pm ET

I try spread Michaels kindness to everyone i meet, I try to smile and be and treat people nice and try to help them whenever possible. I am even nice to people who are not so nice in hopes of changing their way of thinking. I do try to carry on Michaels legacy of kindness and help your fellowman help us to help ourselves.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 12:16 pm ET

I was very supriced,whenn i heared,Michael gonna doo a konsert tour,couse i thoughed,he cant iven walk,he was so sick..Now i see,i was not stupid to believe that,in thes video thay was show it to,how he was sikk.This is all strange.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 12:17 pm ET

Mara–I just went on and accepted your request.

Helen Sanders   August 10th, 2009 12:25 pm ET

Jermaine, keep Michael's dream alive. Many people didn't understand him and it wasn't mean't for people to understand. God place Michael here for a reason and to do what was needed for his time. Michael did it. No matter what people have said, it doesn't matter. Michael had a heart of God. Michael will continue on in my life and I believe in him and understood him. Now its your place to show people the real Michael through you . Spirits live on forver. Peace

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 12:27 pm ET

May Lee-Jacquelyn has a blog-on yahoo–is that what you meant

Lori–It is so slow-

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 12:30 pm ET

Luda, no...A person of Michael's stature is never completely 'free' . Listen to how they say he had 50 body/security guards at Neverland. That place also has cameras and once again, one way in and one way out . Why the need for so many is a mystery to me. Elvis never had that at any given time. He couldn't even tool around in his own golf cart without someone 'clocking' him.

Michael's control was taken away. Let's say oh, Liza Minelli was in town and wanted to drop by, he'd say yes to her, then the security would say 'he had to leave, 'he is not home', etc. THEY are the ones who take THEIR directions from the people who pay their paycheck. AEG or whoever can say Michael hired them, but...AEG has a big liability in keeping Michael safe, so they call the shots, they pay the money, those hired handlers are on AEG's payroll and so one reason we have not heard from them.

It was the Promoters and Michael's new Agent (the one who was fired and then hired back on) who struck the deal-Like they said 'We finally got Muhammad to come to the Mountain' . Michael shied away from AEG for what happened? A little soft sell between promoter and agent, agent informs Michael only 10 shows, ok no harm no foul, then 40 more and 'they say' Michael agreed? Maybe his agent agreed but not Michael. They had him right where they wanted him and they knew damn good and well he could not have completeled all those shows. Money is their game, lots and lots of money-Look what happened- Big Showy Memorial-moeny brought in, tape of rehersals, more money brought in, movie deals, more and more and more-Why didn't these Agents ever stop and think to do all this stuff when Michael was alive? Deadbeats!

Romina   August 10th, 2009 12:35 pm ET

Dear Mr. Jackson,
if your intentions are true and steady, maybe you should do what had to be done a long time ago: guarantee that the whole family has one firm position and a common voice as to the memory of Michael. And you should fight, even with law suits, against people who exploit their acquaintance with him to release degrading statements (e.g. the recent article published by The Mirror).
Silence equals Assent

Debi Bentley-Thuynsma   August 10th, 2009 12:36 pm ET

Thanks to Jermaine for caring about Michael's fans and thanks for all that he plans to do for Michael's fans.
Please release the tribute concert on DVD for those of us who may not be able to attend. We miss out on so much here in Africa. I do plan to visit Neverland someday, so I hope that all of those plans are finalized.

Stu,Hungary   August 10th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

Mary Lee.
For me its so strange,that thay could take control out of MJ hand.He was so clever,he could take over the power before,and he knew,who was the anamy.Now why he would turn to be blind,and let this happend?Speachely after i was woch yestarday tha video about hes death hoas triller 3.He was to cleaver for this.

mariau   August 10th, 2009 12:52 pm ET

everybody was surprised to his concert tour. to think that he was able to do a 50 concert and he was not healthy as before.
Michael was 50 years old, sick and unhealthy.. we don't know exactly why he was very thin and unhealthy. we don't know either if he really commits himself on that concert because of his financial problem.
we don't know exactly what was wrong with him. that video in youtube i don't know too. but it seems he was totally different Michael. wether there's fake or real??? we don't know about the caused of his death..
the drugs and all kinds of drugs.. we really don't know ....
we don't know about AEG... we don't know nothing at all.. all the tabloids and media also contradicting to their own reports, own revealation. "Those Friends of Michael also contradicting their own statements. TV news also doing the same.. Michael's Family also had different points of view about their own brother. His children also has different stories. we don't know anything.. the tabloids just tabloids and media just media that still wanting for their profit and ratings. there's no facts and everything was only fiction. all tabloids telling negative some are not,.. there's always contradiction ..

with us..we are fans of Michael Jackson.. we knew him, because of his music, we knew him because of magic, we knew him because of his gentleness.. his voice, his humanatarian, his charities, and his great great performances. we knew him because he had created this wonderlful music and MTV. he created the future generations of music. his legacy. we knew him as GENIUS, GENEROUS AND GOD GIFTED CHILD..
we knew Michael on this way.. and i guess.. we better knew him only that way... i don't have to read books to know him, i don't need to buy magazines to read about him.. i don't need search his stories around internet..
because in my heart, i know him, i know him that he is great entertainer, great man, gentle, sweet and innocent.. i believed him and i will still believing on him.. he wrote his own music to listen what he wants to tell the world. he wrote those beautiful music to hear what he was and what his vision in his life.. i guess.. that's the truth who was really 'MICHAEL JACKSON".. in his dance.. magical moves.. his voice and his music that enchanted the whole planet earth. .. and noone can ever ever do that.. noone can be ever ever like him.. and that's enought for me to know him.. i will never ever forget Michael Jackson.. he made my childhood completely and with his greatness and generocity will encourage me to immitate him.. his wellness, his thoughtfulness, his soft spoken will encourage me to be like him..
i know him very well.. not only because of his magical music and dance but also his loving heart to give and share love...

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 12:53 pm ET

Linda...This is the new site its a tribute site, I'm thinking Rhonda made it and her daughter helped...wish I could remember the name, Someone who knows, please put the link back up for us-Thanks!

btw...does anyone have any idea of why a lowlife like Ian Halperin would be around Michael for 12 hours while Michael read a bible? It didn't happen. Another money monger out for no good.

you know, Carrie, we in here do not want to hear all this negative stuff you keep repeating. People have the right to their own opinion, but what you are saying is just spreading the rumor fire higher and higher. If he was such an addict, he'd have taken a dirt naps years ago, or someone would have called social services on him and the children would have been taken away.

Holland   August 10th, 2009 12:54 pm ET

Guys, heard that Michael was finally laid at rest last night with only a couple of witnesses, feeling so down. I had hoped for a final magic but sadly it didn't happen.

Niura Schwartz   August 10th, 2009 12:58 pm ET

Girls! I think CNN is going to shutt us off ! After all this is Larry's Blog!
Also, people are getting insane about this hoax ! I don't believe Michael would have been this cruel! This is it was his coming back to the world after years of reclusion! Michael changed we all age and change. The only thing that I tought is odd is the presenter at the Arena O2 in London is he same guy that presented Jermaine in Vienna for the Save the World award last month and this award was schedule months before for Michael would have been his 2nd award for the same cause. So, the question is: Is this guy working for the Arena (AEG) or is he just a host for such events? That is weird!
Well, maybe I am getting insane myself, since Michael's passing I have been online too much ! I have to move on!
What about the Tribute in Vegas you guys already gave up! What kind of fans are you!!! I am kidding !

Christina   August 10th, 2009 1:00 pm ET

Thank you a lot jermaine. For finallly showing everybody what michael was all about. You are being a really loyal brother to him for doing this. I'm sure he would be proud. I am a huge fan of michaels and i know i miss him very much. i wish you and your family the best and i hope you can get over this in the best way possible.

Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 1:03 pm ET

Stu, I am talking about trying to go out, or things one would do in everyday life. I don't think he was completely blind to the fact, just couldn't do too much about it. AEG got him, they made him come to rehersals, he used to have his own control, creative control. called the shots, now AEG called those shots. Yes, he was a clever man, but sometimes in life there are others that are even more clever and they don't usually have to tell him a lot of the truth.

mariau   August 10th, 2009 1:05 pm ET

mary lee, i guess that girl is sick.... she need attention from us because her own idol never had this kind of blogs.. that around the world gathered here to give their love, opinion, sentiments and awareness only for ONE GREAT GREAT PERFOMER ON THE PLANET.. MICHAEL JACKSON"...
she never got chance to blog to her idol, because there's nothing to talk about it.. and if there is.. i guess not as many as this blog.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 1:11 pm ET


Mary Lee   August 10th, 2009 1:15 pm ET

Niura, Please go on to the AEG website, there you will find a lot of arenas that they own. not sure about Vienna, but they do have something over there in Austria, they are worldwide...and 1 man owns all of this! He makes donal Trump or even Howard Hughes look like paupers.

Yea, Mariau...We should not devote any more answers to Carrie. Let her go and find the forum for her own interests-theres only 1 or 2 out there.

Niura Schwartz   August 10th, 2009 1:18 pm ET

Hi Lois in Canada! My email is:
Thank you.

Linda from New York   August 10th, 2009 1:27 pm ET

Niura-I will sent you an email about that tribute

b   August 10th, 2009 1:31 pm ET

Another women saying she's the mother of Michael children. When would they stop? And both women are in court. Unbelievable!!

MJ court hearing updates on TMZ

UPDATE: The judge has tentatively agreed to a protective order, which seems all the more interesting now that we know law enforcement is interested in certain documents, some of which are being held by AEG. The judge noted that law enforcement has the right to contact AEG or the estate directly for the info.

Lisa S   August 10th, 2009 1:37 pm ET


Yes your are right. We know very little. I think what basically drove him to accept those concerts was his insinct to entertain. He loved being on stage. That was when he lived up. He was always ready to entertain. Im sure when he heard that so many wanted him, he wanted to give them what they wanted. Jermaine says in the interview that he knew about all the concerts and that there were no more than 2 concerts a week eventually.

DD   August 10th, 2009 1:42 pm ET

I have been watching the stories on Michael Jackson children since he died. The most recent one today of this new "godfather" claiming to be Paris' father is the best. I believe Arnie Klein said on your show that he was the kids' godfather also. So, how can everyone claim to be the godfather. These people need to find something to do with their lives and let these children have theirs. Michael Jackson has been their father since birth and thats how the story should end. I mean we all could claim to be some relative of some sort if there is money involved. The guy on the today show today needs to stay in the country he is in and get a live and so does Arnie Klein.

Enough is enough.

Elaine Fields   August 10th, 2009 1:52 pm ET

The Memorial was very good on TV but I felt the true fans were locked out.
There has to be a better way than an unmarked grave.
His fans need a place to gather, pay their respects and mourn the loss
of this true legend and forever King. I believe his brother Jermaine understands this best.
I liked what Jermaine said on CNN with Larry King. It just seems to be such a loss that
much of his music (in the later years) was not put on DVD. We all just wanted to
see him sing and dance again. I have always been an avid fan and collector of
anything Michael Jackson. He was and is always more.
btw: i liked the interview, good job Larry

roberta gish   August 10th, 2009 2:07 pm ET

I feel so bad about what happen M J the family my hearts go out them as my self raise up as JW the grandmother teach them to as she did her own about jahovah were do you thing M J got the love from maybe these more people to jahovah the true god the family knows

Honorine   August 10th, 2009 2:26 pm ET

Yes we should ignore Carrie.
But i have this one last thing.
She keeps coming on here. There is only one reason for that: she is a fanatic, she is so obsessed with MJ she has to come on this blog, and one last thing, CARRIE LOVES KOOL-AID. Yeah she/he does!!!!!!

Honorine   August 10th, 2009 2:29 pm ET

I think that message pops up because this blog is congested. It has over a thousand messages blogged already.

Lori   August 10th, 2009 2:44 pm ET

The crazies are coming out at the court hearing today.

Hi Larry –

How about having Larry Nimmer on LKL???

theresa   August 10th, 2009 3:07 pm ET

i truely enjoyed hearing the good deeds that michael jackson has done to come to the aid of the silent cries of those who are unable to stand, the children, the hugry and the helpless. i feel that jermaine made it very clear he's brother's destiny in life was to send a message to the world of unselfishness. it truely has changed my view on helping others. i know that GOD has a plan for each and everyone of us and that it is up to us to carry it out. i am in a position to help others and i believe that GOD has placed me here to do so. so without any reservations i am ready to stand on the front line to give of myself to better someone elses life. thank-you jermaine for the other side of giving through your brother. theresa

Mona Fredericksburg, Virginia   August 10th, 2009 3:37 pm ET

I hope that Michael will be shown the respect he DESERVES and be laid to rest soon. I heard that he was going to be buried in an unmarked grave, although I don't know how true that is. As much as I understand the Jackson Family's desire for privacy and respect that, I still feel that Michael's fans should be able to have the right to pay homage to him and visit his gravesite. Other than Michael's family and real friends, Michael's FANS were the ones that stood by him through thick and thin. His TRUE fans would never think of desecrating his grave or doing anything else so destructive. His fans RESPECTED him and will always continue to RESPECT him.

I, for one, agree that Neverland should be turned into Michael's Graceland. Neverland was his vision, his creation, his sanctuary. He said he never wanted to go back there, but that was when he was still alive. Only the shell of his body remains on this earth, his SPIRIT has gone to heaven to be with God. Would it MATTER to him that his earthly remains go back to Neverland now that his SPIRIT can soar without being bound by the chains, the sorrows, the trials and tribulations of THIS world? I think that it WOULD NOT matter to him.

Lois   August 10th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

Thanks Niura – I got it before they decide to delete our posts again....grr. Which facebook group are you guys going to?? I am so far behind on the reading, etc. It might be easier for us to plan stuff on Facebook rather than here, cuz CNN likes to delete stuff.

Niura Schwartz   August 10th, 2009 4:08 pm ET

Mona, I think that is possible that he is going to be buried in an unmarked grave, don't forget the Jacksons are Jeovah's Witnesses and they beleieve that when you die you don't have consciousness anymore that everything you did was here. No soul remains after death Jesus Christ will return to resurrect the dead, restoring soul and body. Those judged righteous will be given everlasting life on a paradise earth. Those judged unrighteous will not be tormented, but will die and cease to exist and you will be God's memory.Maybe that's why Michael once said that he did not to be buried that he wanted to live forever. Well, is an interesting view. Thank you for your comments.

I heard somebody say on TV that laying him to rest at Neverland would be an act of Redemption. That the past is gone and the future is for Michael.

For Jeremaine: Hello Jeremaine i m sorry for your loss is was a loss for all the world.Stories ar many but not all true.Thanks Jeremaine , becouse you think to continue helping poor people , children orphans , sick children now in these times when a few ar helping.Jeremaine i m ready to help only how to do help, ALAH MAAK JEREMAINE!

KarlaJ   August 10th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

Jermaine, I have yet to see the light at the end of this dark tunnel I have been going through since Michaels’ death, I don’t think I could ever get over this, it is breaking my heart to the point of no return. What makes this hurt the most is that it all could have been prevented, this is why it hurts so much more and makes it all so diffcult to diggest, he’s gone too soon, due to not getting the help he so needed from the people that could give him that help. I’m sorry but I don’t know how this you say you could not see, it was so obvious, he even said it once himself he was addicted to pain medication, he said it to the world in a TV message, he looked so derailed at some point during the trials, he could barely walk at some point, how could this have been taken so lightly. As a fan I would have done whatever it would have taken, but I couldn’t, I am just a stranger in his life with no possibility of getting near him, but I honestly trusted that the family would have watched over him more closely, at some point I thought he was just fine, but when I saw him at the announcement of his O2 concerts, I was shocked, he didn’t even look like him, he was so thin, he looked like he had aged so much in so little time, honestly he did not look healthy to me at all and it concerned me, how could the family not see this.

I have so much pain, nothing can ever take it away. I feel so much for those beautiful children, they did not deserve to lose their most precious dad and yet they were also in the dark and didn’t get the opportunity to do something to help him. I feel so bad for them, they lived with him and yet they were children and could not understand if something was not right.

Anger fuels my pain to the point that I feel I will burst into a million pieces and I cannot help it. I do offer my sincere condolences to you and the family but I also offer an apology because I just cannot cope with the idea that no one knew anything, we have lost so much more that Michael had yet to give.

EM   August 10th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

When I watched Jeremaine on Larry King show Friday night. Larry asked him about his father Joe. Jeremaine saying he's a good man, etc. Did anyone see that interview with MJ- I think it was called, "living with Michael Jackson." MJ talked about how bad his father beat him, and his brothers. MJ also said that his father would make fun of his nose. Joe would say to MJ, "you didn't get that from my side of the family, you got it from your mother's side," MJ said that would hurt his feelings so much. One of his brothers got beat worse, because he couldn't get the dancing down as well as MJ, MJ said in his interview. I can't believe that Larry didn't mention that interview to Jeremaine, he would probably say he didn't know anything about that either. He was either not being honest Friday night, or he doesn't know anything about his family. All I heard out of the interview from Jeremaine was, "I don't know." He never saw MJ acting strange? Come on Jeremaine!!!!! You didn't know he was doing drugs? Did anyone hear that Jeremaine was on Larry King a few years ago, talking about MJ doing drugs? Was this his first interview with Larry King?
I can't believe that MJ isn't at his resting place yet. What's up with that. Never heard of such a thing.

Lois   August 10th, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Linda, Lori, Toni, Mara – does any of you know if there is a facebook group where some of the bloggers here are also posting or members?

Right out of ringing bros circus. the family want all the moeny. no rule or law that says its yours go and find jobs not hanging on to a dead man who was stupid to pay a doctor for slee p drugs. he was a user a clever user used a drug that cant be traced except he died from it oops

Patty Anderson   August 11th, 2009 12:15 am ET

Hi everyone Finally home from work. I was very happy to hear the decision from the judge today. Those children's interest and future need to be protected. Hi Linda I did recieve your email

Barb   August 11th, 2009 12:57 am ET

Jermaine I feel your pain....I lost a brother way to young also ....he was only 30.
I just pray and hope that Michael's children do well and I hope the media leaves him alone.
Enough is enough.........Micheal deserves so much more respect ~!!!!
Everyone that thinks he is the father of Micheal's children........give your head a shake.........your all white!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can see that the children are Micheal' they all are dark~! Just because they are not
100% black doesn't mean that they are not Micheal's. are a good brother and I have you in my prayers!

Meddie   August 11th, 2009 1:38 am ET

Yes all seriously all I have seen over the years with Michael, which I also have uploaded everything on my blog for him. Not just the documents that you mentioned this even before Oprah, he speaks out about his life which is a must to see! Any misconduct that has destroyed Michael's psyche from the beginning is his father, Joe Jackson. It is he who is culprit behind Michaels poor self-esteem and sadness. Since everything that the world was against him with the media response analogous him down overall and the children who Belva persuaded their parents to blame him for one after the other! Then turned the whole world against him. How easy is it? He received no support from ANYONE! All said no smoke without fire .. And the suspicions were always IMMOVABLE he was acquitted against him, even today makes them whatsoever! Sooner But we who know the truth! That he would never do this! All people can change. It was then today is today. And Thank God that we do it. So, Joe may have changed it is not one we have to judge by, for it is God who sees all and it is God's job! So Jermanie know better than us because he is a family member and we are only a few fans who love Michael and try to do everything in our defense of him! But more Respect for Jermanie! What he does is really good and I am glad that he is a support pillar of Michaels death, that we have a good person to take care of everything and helps Michael I of his defense and show the world the truth about Michael! Peace! Respect!

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 11th, 2009 3:42 am ET


Would you consider putting Rebbie's prayer for Michael on your weblog? It is a Bible text from the Gospel of John and a Psalm. It is in the official memorial book as well.

It is the following:

I love you so much and I'm looking forward to the time I will see you again on Earth (John 5:28-29). I know this is not only something you cherished but talked about with others. Then the world will be a paradise, a place free from corruption and poverty. Then the world will be a place of true peace and serenity. This is what we are all looking to, then I'll see you again. Sleep in peace, because as the bible says, you're just asleep, and I look forward to life without end at last (Psalms 37:29).

Your sister Rebbi

danielle   August 11th, 2009 4:24 am ET

hey jermaine micheal did alot for the world and i just wanned to say thanxx alot r.i.p. we miss him thank you for all you done

you can reach me @

danielle   August 11th, 2009 4:25 am ET

larry can you tell jermaine i love him soo much

Rose   August 11th, 2009 5:02 am ET

I am an avid admirer of Michael Jackson – not for his controversial life, but for what he was – his humanitarian works and his genius as a complete and ultimate entertainer of all times. If Jermaine really meant to continue Michael's mission – why did he not mention Michael Jackson's Heal the World Foundation as one of the beneficiaries? Instead he just mentioned Earth Care and Larry King Foundation. Where's Michael's beloved Foundation? Also, the fans want to honor and celebrate Michael's birthday on the 29th not in September.
Please don't be like all the other celebrities who put Michael's name on their songs/album/show with the lame reason(as tribute to Michael). They're just riding on Michael's celebrity status. Where were they when Michael was alive? They were out there ridiculing and mocking him.
Let the fans and Michael's kids now mourn in peace. Michael, we love you.

ina   August 11th, 2009 7:01 am ET

So yeah hi could be helped but those who were close to him they prefer the money that what they was interested , not to help Michael and now they come to speak the Michael was in drugs? Why the dont talk first.?..Everything iesti advertising , first they had not talked they was afraid to dont los salary, now... they talked for advertising. thatwhat killed Michael, greedy peoplewho they was close to him. I m sorry and i m so fell so badthat no one did anything to help him .,I hope they can live with the guilt the could make something for Michael , but they dont !

Maureen (UK)   August 11th, 2009 9:16 am ET

Gerald Jolly / John
Are you by any chance the sad person who posted a blog pretending to be MJ's daughter the other day ?
You've obviously got a lot of surplus energy, so how about becoming a volunteer or a missionary ?

Dirty Diana   August 11th, 2009 3:00 pm ET

There is a reason MJ did not make a member of his family an executor of his will. After watching the interview with Jermaine the reason is obvious. Jermaine seems much more interested in propelling his own career than paying tribute to Michael. Nothing has boosted his career more than Michael's death. The interview added nothing since Jermaine's answer to almost every question was : "I don't know". How could he claim to know nothing about MJ's drug use.....whether Omar is Mj's son, beatings from Joe, did Mj convert to Islam, where will he be buried etc. etc. The only thing he did know about was how to promote himself and HIS concerts, for the charity of HIS choice. How sad for Michael to be used in this way by his own family. Shame on them! If Jermaine really cared about Michael, he would put all his energies into finding out who is responsible for his brother's death and stop the concert B.S. How transparent can one be?

Carrie from SF BAY, CA   August 11th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Diane, I couldn’t agree with you more. All Jermaine is interested in is lining his own pockets. He is trying to rush in and profit off his own brother’s death. Sad as it may be he , his father (Joe), and Latoya seem to be just a like. All three of them are after money that can be made off Michael‘s death. . You see what Joe Jackson did at the BET awards? He was out promoting his record company.

Niura Schwartz   August 11th, 2009 4:39 pm ET

Hi Dirty Diana: I can agreed with you more! Is very sad!
But you know what , if we can come together and make this Tribute for Michael from the fans in Las Vegas happen it will make a difference because, we the fans loved Michael and he loved the fans and we can donate whatever procedes to one of his charities and that is the Tribute that Michael deserves not to go to Austria, let them have that cold Palace and make the money, they will show the world what are they realy about! Jermaine is going to sell his CD for a while and go to the shadows again where he belongs.

Rose   August 12th, 2009 7:20 am ET


If you really care for your brother and wish to continue his legacy, why not start with the charity he himself founded – Heal the World Foundation. I was saddened to read in papers saying this is fake and that Michael has in no way connection with this. This is really sad. For one thing, Michael has conceived this sentence – Heal the World. This was his mission. It is already tragic enough that his detractors have tried to turn the one he really and truly loves – children- against him and destroy his name. You, as Michael's brother, can revive his mission by supporting the Foundation. It would be a real honor to Michael if you just get in touch with the present administrators of this Foundation and go hand in hand with them to revive this Foundation and link Michael's name again to his main aim in life – to heal the world. Let us remember Michael on his b-day on Aug. 29 by making this wonderful song of love – Heal the World – be heard all day long and try to make an effort to heal the world in your own small way.

Nicole   August 12th, 2009 8:52 am ET

Please Sign the Michael Jackson Nobel Peace Prize Petition. Just Google it.

ina   August 12th, 2009 9:45 am ET

You are right Mariau, we are nobody to judge Michael, and nobody should do it only god can judge all. Gerald Jolly, you knew Michael , personally to say what you say? Michael, just loved children , i lov children and i styl play with the laik i am a child , that not means that i am a molesting person.People like you who spoke without thinking, greedy people who would do anything for money they destroyed Michael! Now that Michael ,is no longer i hope thouse how accused Michael, regrets the harm done to Michael, for rest of their lives! So if you do not now what to spoke keep your mouth shut!

Jessica   August 12th, 2009 1:15 pm ET

Come with me
and lets make believe
there's a world beyond
where love is spread
far and wide
where our inner children
can run, play and hide
where we can
if we want
climb a tree
inspire unity
and be free.

Come with me to Dreamland.

I visit this place nightl, as I lay my head down to sleep. And, I invite Michael there. He comes along...

Daily, I greet the new morning. I wake, and I ask Michael to walk with me.

I cry my tears of mourning, because I cannot conceive of a world without Michael. I came to his party late, but I'm here now to stay. This love, newly born, goes straight to heaven and into his heart.

Thank you, Jermaine, for this TRIBUTE as a coming together for the fans to Celebrate the life of your brother. We can never truly say goodbye, it hurts too much. But, we can say, we celebrate YOU (Michael).
