Michael Jackson's father blames Katherine Jackson for his death

Posted: 08:07 AM ET

Michael Jackson's father blames the King of Pop's mom for the singer's death.

Joe Jackson admitted to News of the World that he lit into his estranged wife, Katherine, when the two were standing over the pop icon's body on a mortuary table.

"Katherine was weeping uncontrollably and highly upset. But I didn't give her a hug because I was mad at her crying," Joe Jackson told the British paper yesterday.

"I said, 'If you had listened to me, Michael would be living now!' I kept thinking about the times I had stood in front of her saying something was wrong."

The King of Pop, who died on June 25, 2009, had long blamed his adult woes on the miserable childhood crafted by his abusive, money-grubbing dad.

Another story from the News of the World (tabloid trash) – wonder why the NY Post would pick up this on their newswire.

Judie   June 14th, 2010 8:43 am ET

People are grasping for straws right now and to blame Mrs. Katherine is just normal. Telling the media is another story. Joe I am trying to understand you and you make it very hard. I think you would of stepped in if you felt something was wrong with Michael.We all seen how frail Michael was in TII.
Stop the blaming it's too late for that now.

lois 48 ,How are you? Nice to see your comment! and that paper is notorious for printing 'Rubbish'....I dont now why this has come out ,at this is odd.But all they have shown and printed on Michael has been disrespectful ,and this is all I will say.Is this Factual....actual? Time will tell.Lets see what this day will bring? Love Maria C.

Judie   June 14th, 2010 9:17 am ET

I have to agree with you – Mrs. Katherine has our hearts and prayers.
Her face tells her story and it's a tragic story. One that should of never happened.

RIP ~Michael~

It's all for the publicity, people. Don't even read this garbage. Just listen to Michael's music and live by his kind, gentle, loving words.

It's nearly a year to the first anniversary of MJ's death.
The parents should be closer to each other in this difficult time.
No point apportioning blame.
Hope this is is not a true story.

who is wrong and who is right

whos innocent whos guilty dig deep and see
a respected member of his community
will bus loads off fans be shipped in for he
will he be jeered cheered shown love or hate
this is something to contemplate

Lady Luck   June 14th, 2010 10:15 am ET

Joe Jackson should be ashamed of himself!

Why in the world would he, not only throw his wife under the bus, but to the most vile tabloid in the world? Oh I know: MONEY!!!!!!

This interview should have focused on Conrad Murray and only Conrad Murray, but I guess "The News Of The World" doesn't pay much for a Murray related story coming from Joe Jackson!

I wonder how Jermaine, LaToya, Randy, Tito, Jackie, Rebbie, Janet, Marlon feel about good ole dad throwing their beloved mother under the bus.

Risalo   June 14th, 2010 10:30 am ET

What a jerk – even to the last. Everyone knows how Michael felt about his mom. The will proves that fact. Joe is just mad he didn't get a piece of the pie. Money loving leach is what he is. The love of money is the root of all sorts of injurious things.

TRUE-TO -YOU   June 14th, 2010 10:54 am ET

as they are saying the will is fake
now whos side are you gonna take
dont be hasty to judge without proof
read between the lines and find the truth

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Marguerite   June 14th, 2010 10:55 am ET

It's a complete lie, why do people buy these papers? It's not the truth I'm here to say. You know, don't judge a person, do not pass judgement, unless you have talked to them one on one. I don't care what the story is, do not judge them because it is a lie.

Thank you. 'Michael Jackson Conspiracy' by Aphrodite really gives insight into just what Michael had to endure at the hands of greedy scum bound and determined to take down the King of Pop.
Greed...I have never seen it in such saturation as in Michael's life.

Stay strong Katherine.

Heartbreaking photo...just heartbreaking.

Good Morning All ! Well today is the day and it will be an interesting day. Just an important reminder, no matter what happen remember One Love Another that is what Michael wants.

@ Letta –
Where ever you are this day will be interesting. I will be sitting on the sideline watching afar. Grab some popcorn and grab a seat, we are going to watch a very interesting story. Hope you have a good day, got to go now have to get to work – Take Care.

Maria C- the post is known for printing trash.

Lady Luck   June 14th, 2010 11:27 am ET

In my opinion, Joe Jackson shot himself in the foot, with his latest action.

Going after Katherine Jackson was a very bad move on his part!

I thought it was bad when he promoted his new record label 2 days after Michael passed away, at the BET awards. Remember that?

I didn't think he would be able to top that, but he did!

Cajazz76:24:8   June 14th, 2010 11:33 am ET

How far greater depths can Joe Jackson descend to in his attempts to distribute the self contempt and guilt he has compiled over the years of his brutal and tumultuous upbringing burned into the memories of his wife and children? It is ingrained into their DNA and will affect their generations that are still beyond the horizon. It will require many decades to purge itself.

Give it up Joe and stop using the damaged goods you left behind and move away from them, so they can live the remainder of their lives out of sight of your plastic displays of suffering, if you can lower your greed instincts to allow yourself a touch of reality. You just simply stink from immoral decay and live in a false and contrived world of gloat and gluttony stripped from the backs of those you abused...your wife and children.

I think there should be a museum, built with you as the vanguard, to reflect the destruction of the family nucleus when children are reared by the Mengeles' in society. Your museum Joe, would be adorned with reflections that the Holocaust mirrored toward the world. You will remain symbolic as man's inhumanity to man, as you will to your children and the society who sees you as you really are...petrified repulsion, stone cold, free of human kindness and overflowing with self absorption, deficient of moral fiber, and starving from monetary gluttony. Got milk? It may ease the swallowing of your felonious pride, but it will only be bottled as curdled and sour for you.

sometimes you walk a lonely road
before the truth can unfold
when nothing seems clear insight
but will the answers set this right
you are feeling the full force of fury
everyones your judge and your jury
a beating heart lives in you
you feel the pain like them to
a monster is all they see
there is nothing else that you can be?
but deep inside you feel the pain
they cannot see and thats a shame
you keep on with this lonely walk
head up high ignore the talk
a task has been set for you
your mission is to see it thru
and in the end they may see
its all for love and that is free
so you keep on with this lonely road
looking for a hand to hold
and when that hand dont come your way
you dont turn back you choose to stay

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

gail   June 14th, 2010 12:32 pm ET

joe jackson is a horrible man that need to vanish. michael loved his mother and his mother loved him. sometimes people are deep in depression and the only way out is that they have to help themselves. joe jackson has put enough verbal abuse on the family. katherine is elderly and in mourning and instead of trying to console her he insults her. his bad karma need to come quick.

Susan   June 14th, 2010 12:35 pm ET

Joe Jackson is the person most responsible for Michael Jackson's misery. What kind of father doesn't let his child play when he's a child? What kind of father hits his child for making mistakes when he is WORKING (he shouldn't even HAVE to work as a child). What kind of father tells his child that he is ugly. What kind of father beats his child with anything he can get his hands on. What kind of father takes his child to strip joints to work. The answer is "the kind of father who loves money more than anything else in this world." Katherine should have divorced this man many decades before she did. That is her mistake.

swhelly   June 14th, 2010 12:46 pm ET

Joe is a low life. Katherine loves those kids.She must have cut him off of all funds. He is one of the most creedy men in the world. She should have left him a long time ago.

Beverly - Chicago   June 14th, 2010 12:52 pm ET

There is something not quite right about this. I don't think this really happened in a serious manner. I hope it didn't anyway. I find it hard to believe in any case, so I hope it's not true. I just highly doubt this whole story.

babycarie   June 14th, 2010 1:01 pm ET

Joe is Joe, and at 80 years old he will not change nor will he admit to any wrong doings from past, present, or future. His statement does not surprise me in the least, and I believe the tape/story was from last year. (children, etc.) was, is, and always will be about business. Katherine certainly has developed rhinoceros skin by now...the abuse of the children, the infidelity that resulted in 'other' children, blatant exploitation of Michael's life and death. This will be just another hurdle that I am sure Katherine will cross unscathed. I know where Michael inherited his strength.

DN!!!!!!!!!! Oh how I miss you!!!!

Madame   June 14th, 2010 1:02 pm ET

Joe Jackson is my Hero......The Jackson boys are not Drug Addicts, or Ex-convicts!! They are HISTORY!!!!
The world needs more Joe Jackson's anf maybe all this Killing will stop.
OK, so he whipped Michael, Ok, but Michael would swing back at him..That didn't mean he didn't love him.
When Oprah, yes, Oprah, started all this stuff about Childhood whippings, oops, let me put it in her words, Abuse....celebrities started falling out the woodwork stating they were abused as children. Sexually and Physically.....
Joe said one time, "if I whipped him, I whipped him all the way to the Bank" So, lets stop picking in this man, he lost his Son, a Son I'm sure he loved as he loves all his children. He only wanted them to have a good life, and not to scrimp and save like he had to.
God Bless Joseph Jackson and Katherine Jackson, the Parents of the World's Greatest Entertainer, and May He Rest In Peace......

mariam   June 14th, 2010 1:03 pm ET

Dearest Katherine,
Your one fine woman and a heroine. You have raised 9 children while being betrayed by your husband. I know how it feels because I've been there and done that. You really have to be a strong woman to endure this kind of life a very gifted woman. Your sons were all gifted and tried their best because they knew you were suffering. I am going through the same things you went through and hope I get the same strength you have. Life is not a bed of roses and sometimes we lose our very loved ones and feel responsible. Its not your fault though. You did your best and life is in the hand of the beholder. As for Joe , he's just a father who acted wrongly in his sons life and feels guilty and blames someone else for his mistakes. I really do feel he loves MJ in his own way.
Katherine and family I wish you luck in the trial from the bottom of my heart.

Sad   June 14th, 2010 1:12 pm ET

Joe Jackson shows no mercy or understanding of the cruelty he has brought to his family. He sees everything and everyone as his next meal ticket and pleasure. He is a user. His family reals in a sea of damage and grief as they piece together their own lives. Any and all good mothers cry at the sides of their children who have passed on. Only a monster attacks a mother in this position. Joe Jackson lives a twisted evil existence blaming others rather than seeing his own damaged self.

doubtingthomas2010   June 14th, 2010 1:15 pm ET

Life is hard for everyone. People are always bringing up what he said about his childhood. Just as much as he talked about what happened, he also stated that he loved both his parents and wouldn't change his childhood. It gave him the opportunity to be on stage (which he did love) and see the world. He always mentions that. He also stated in regards to his father, as he got older and realized how in the time his father was raised, that had a lot to do with how he reared his children. His relationship with his parents is just that-HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS PARENTS. Everyone looks back at their life and wonders how they life would've been if their path was different. MJ forgave his father, so I don't feel the need to throw stones at him. We don't know when and whom he was speaking to on that tape and wishing him bad won't change anything.

Nana Brown- I agree with you. This story is irrelevant as to what is really going on.

For those of you who question the media the documentary "Orwell Would Roll In His Grave", is worth checking out. It will give you insight into a lot of things and why certain stories spin.

"Pixie Dust "   June 14th, 2010 1:23 pm ET

Marguerite,Yes indeed your post at 10:55 am was most excellent and very much appreciated.Michael's own quotes,thank you for I have stated all along I truly believe in Michael.And yes these tabloid magazines are just a bunch of gossip.What is gossip nothing other than made up stories,Thanks again Marguerite
Sending (Smiles) you way.

Robin   June 14th, 2010 1:26 pm ET

Michael would be rolling in his grave right now to see his father attack his mother the way he is. Not that anyone of knows what happened in Michael's childhood. But from Michael has said, it must have been pretty bad and probably some of his problems dealing with social settings stems from his past. But Joe, there are ways to make sure you raise decent children without the use of such violence. It is your fault your children are the way they are, not your wife. But I will still pray for you.

Kara   June 14th, 2010 1:28 pm ET

Joe, really?! That is who you are going to blame for his death?! I think you best look in the mirror again before you start throwing the blame around.

Get help, you are stuck in an imaginary world where you think you have talent. All is not as it seems!!!

raven   June 14th, 2010 1:37 pm ET

ok people we need to stop attacking the jacksons, they are all grieving the lost of a loved one. everyone starts to blame one another for different thing. i am in no way taking up joe but i do know first hand how losing a loved one can cause you to do that. my cousin 11 year old son was killed at the hands of his best friend dad. she blame everyone she was so hurt from it she still wont let her other children out of her sight. people grieve in different ways.

Joe Jackson is a self-serving, money-grubbing a**hole that doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself and I STILL don't understand why anyone wastes their time talking to this POS! They're just giving him more attention that he doesn't deserve but I guess it's the only way he can make any money.... the media needs to stop glorifying this stuff and leave the family alone!

Ok, so he told HER something was wrong so it's HER fault?! If he knew enough to tell her something was wrong and blame her, then why didn't HE do something about it instead of spending all of his time pointing fingers? What a horrible excuse for a human being you are, Joe!

Patty   June 14th, 2010 1:54 pm ET

If this story is true and Joe thought something was wrong with Michael, then why didn't HE do something? I agree with Raven, these people are grieving a loved one. Let Michael rest in peace. And God Bless the family

JoAnn   June 14th, 2010 1:55 pm ET

Look at that picture – mom is a puddle, dad is hard as nails, no emotion. Every parent makes mistakes one way or another, but Joe Jackson has made multiple, multiple mistakes on how he handled those boys, with Michael taking the brunt of the abuse. Moms mistake is that she didnt step in. Had my husband done to my kids what Joe Jackson did to his, I would have taken him out. Joe, your lucky I wasnt around!!! Although, Michael was 50+ years old, old enough to know there were problems and seek the correct professional help needed. He sought the easy way out and ended up paying the ultimate price. I hope it was worth it.

Subject: Discrimination

Dear Lindsey,
Lindsey, I received information from you. I feel that my grand-child, Shayna and I have been discriminated against. This discrimination is no stranger to me. I’ve been treated like this all my life, made to feel like I was a second class citizen. Lindsey, you told me if it were your niece of nephew you’d do the same thing, writing others, you have been helpful. My family is important too! I’ll come to Washington State, when my grand-child is freed out of bondage, yes Bondage! Shayna’s learning her ABC’s 123’s, with Laura Anderson and her Boyfriend, Tommy. My wife and I will teach Shayna family values and not to live in sin as, Laura Anderson and her boyfriend are doing, flaunting fornication and shacking up! These are ungodly morals and values. How can there be any kind of values in that home? These fornicators’ disgust me, pushing there sinful values on my grand-child. Laura Anderson and her boyfriend have also probably been jerking Shayna at the arm separating her elbow for the last twenty months. Shayna is two years old, not eighty two. Lindsey, do I sound like I’m mad? No! I’m not mad.. I’m PISSED. Those RATS’ have messed with the wrong Grand-Pa. The Governor, nor the agency are not planning to give Shayna to my wife and I. They have proven themselves in the past not to be trustworthy. Lindsey, watch the Head of State, the Lord has revealed to me she is surrounded by evil and correction, watch her like the hawk, there’s an evil force there. Governor Gregorie of Washington, State, talks about family, her family only , not mine. The Governor nor agency cares about Shayna, just the money and more money if Shayna is adopted out. Kim Gabbard told me not to talk to you anymore. You’re too kind to be working there, you want to do whats right. Washington State is like Sodom and Gomorra. Leave that place, it is filled with sin and transgression. Ms. Dreyfus you said, “ It’s a incredible thing when family steps up. Was that just talk? I feel that my grand-child and I have been discriminated against, Hughie Dang, Kim Gabbard, Chrissy Wright, Becky Smith, Governor Gregoire, do the right thing, give me my grand-child or I’m going to keep raisin… HELL!!!

Dodie   June 14th, 2010 2:15 pm ET

Both Joe and Katherine are in deep emotional pain. The grief of losing their beloved son, Michael is taking a toll on both of them.

When terrible events happen in our life, we often feel the need to blame someone else or ourselves for the tragic fate that has been bestowed upon us. It is often difficult to comprehend that sometimes with tragic fate, there is no blame. However, in this particular case, I do believe that the media played a significant part of Michael’s deep emotional pain; thus, resulting in insomnia and the need to take medications in order to sleep….and we all know the outcome of this………………

Elizabeth Kübler-Ross defines 5 stages of grief or loss….denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance

Right now Joe is ‘stuck’ in the anger stage… My heart goes out to both Joe and Katherine….. May they both find some sense of peace someday. I only hope the media gives them the space needed so they can continue with their grieving process.

Bless them both!!!

George   June 14th, 2010 2:16 pm ET

What nerve this blustering ***hole has! Sure, Katherine Jackson was too doting and pampered Michael too much, but she never would have had to do that if her husband had not been so controlling and heavy handed with thier large family. That's why Michael and Janet and all the other Jackson siblings broke off ties to Joe Jackson's management of them when they reached the age of consent. Anyone who has to paint eyebrows on to his face like some dried up drag queen has little room to criticize his estranged wife or anyone else, as though he cares about Michael at all. All he ever cared about was power and prestige and having complete control of everyone and everything concerning his long suffering family.

Shame on you, Jackson. Dry up and stop hogging media time with these horrible stories and putting yourself on some pedestal that you do NOT deserve to occupy.

"Pixie Dust "   June 14th, 2010 2:18 pm ET

Exactly,people must stop attacking the Jackson family and start showing more respect for them.The Jackson family has done no wrong to anyone .They are a family unit that will get through all of this, as they have much love for one another.Even though a person's family may not be perfect they do not want nor need people prying into it and picking them apart.That is their family, to love and honor,We must mind our own.(Smiles) to all.

Michael loved his mother so much and I don't think he would have NOT listened to her, if she gave him some bold, intervention, wake up call, advice. Katherine was never that strong of a woman though, when you have an abusive husband, they make you feel weak, like you have no say in anything.

Women have got to stand up to these sorry men... be tough, outspoken and a protective lioness B.... and protect your babies!

a heart that can connect like this
is it a curse or is it a gift
to feel the pain from deep within
to feel the love and warmth it bring
to feel a smile coming thru
are you a fake or are you true
you have never been inside my mind
your comments are not very kind
dont ever try to step in there
it will have you tearing out your hair
and dont try to step on my heart
that would not be very smart
and before i go on my way
another thing i have to say
you seem to be bitter and sour
that does not give you any power
infact you wanna keep your cool
lose your head you look a fool
try and start with a smile
instead of acting mean and vile
if you want to live in misery
then all alone you will be

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

@queen lateefah: Maybe such horrors were the norm in YOUR home, but to try to defend Joe Jackson by claiming that everyone abused their kids in past decades is not just ridiculous, it's obscene. Michael frequently blamed his father's brutality for his (M's) issues as an adult, and that's good enough for me.

Marsha Modest   June 14th, 2010 2:27 pm ET

It is unfortunate that Joe Jackson is such an opportuniist who will say and do anything to get his hands on money that is intended for his wife and grandchildren. May he rot in ____. There was a reason that Michael excluded from his will and it is becoming more and more apparent that more he opens his mouth.

Lucy   June 14th, 2010 2:27 pm ET

Joe is a a user/abuser, a money hungry, opportunistic s.o.b .! Michael had social, emotional, and psychological problems because of Joe!How dare he come at Katherine this way? Michael adored his mother, he would be totally heartbroken seeing Joe treat his beloved mother this way. This is so sad. I love you Katherine and MJ3. Stay strong.

Rest In Paradise sweet Michael.

I want to thank those that posted the link to the huffington post. I just read it and I wish we had all had that information at the time it happened. It's wrong for anyone, famous or not to be tried in the media, and it happens more often than not. People's lives have been ruined by the media trying the case before hand, and not just MJ.

And for those that say Joe was just raising his family, that's how it was back then. Well yeah, I grew up in the error, and I got a spanking or two.. but I was not beaten. Which is what the claim was,, that Joe went to far. Which is wrong for any parent to do. Just because he made them famous doesn't give him the right to abuse!

Murray...should lose his license...but???

Lin McKay   June 14th, 2010 3:13 pm ET

If anyone is to blame for the way Michael Jackson's life spiraled down it is his lowlife father, the man he detested, the greedly, scumbag, pimping father. MJ knew what his father was and kept Joe Jackson out of his life. Why does Larry King even take time to listen to the poor excuse of a father? Joe Jackson is moneygrabbing, child abusine, young girl-using, worm that should crawl back under a rock and disappear forever. I hope the judge does not give Joe Jackson one dime. Why doesn't Katherine Jackson divorce him? How any of his children with Katherine can stand to be around him is beyond belief.

JamesB   June 14th, 2010 3:16 pm ET

You folks are terribly harsh. Both of his parents re grief stricken. You weren't there; stop blaming Joe Jackson for everything. Did you not hear Michael say in one of his interview that he would not give up the life he had in exchange for a different childhood? I'm sure you did.

A Fan Forever   June 14th, 2010 3:19 pm ET

The bigger the star, the bigger the target (MJ).
Michael Jackson, there was no one bigger.

“A million times we've needed you,
A million tears we've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
Part of us went with you,
The day He called you home.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part,
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our heart”.

Our lives go by at lightning speed, we laugh, we dance, we sing, we cry, we mourn, we pray, we love and we live. Some people come into our lives and quickly go, some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same. It is hard to believe that a year has already gone by since Michael Jackson passed away.

I am proud to say I am a fan and have followed his career through the 40 plus years, I watched him grow from a child prodigy into a global icon who died too soon, he was a phenomenon and a once in a lifetime talent and we were blessed to witness his genius. His musical talent was beyond extraordinary and when you revisit the words to his songs, poems and writings it becomes more and more evident that he was a gifted visionary and was no ordinary man or spirit by far. His time on this earth was spent talking and singing about love, harmony, peace and healing the planet, he gave us hope both through his songs and his humanitarian efforts. There was so much more to him than meets the eye. The mark he left on music and popular culture will surely never fade and I will remember him forever for his philanthropy and will always admire him because he opened his wallet, his home and most importantly his heart, he gave the underprivileged, the sick and the dying children of the world a sense of self worth. I witnessed a whole life go by and now it is over, he was human, no more no less.

When I hear a song, see a picture, I will stop and remember you fondly with smiles, love and always, as a sincere, caring human being who wanted nothing more than to “Heal the World”. Michael, thank you for sharing your God-given talent and giving us a lifetime of your heart. A heavy laden soul now at peace.

Like all the greats, he left behind his art to be enjoyed forever. don't cry because he is gone, dance so he lives on..................

Lori - Justice for Michael   June 14th, 2010 3:52 pm ET

A family tragedy often cause dissent and fractured familial relationships as the family members process the tragedy. I am praying for all members of the Jackson Family. They have lost a son, a father, a sibling, an uncle. The fans have lost an entertainment icon. I can only imagine the pain the Jacksons have and are still suffering. They will need all of their strength and endurance as all of the many conflicts in the court cases and dealing with the estate administration plays on. I pray that the family will hold fast to each other and unite for Michael's legacy.


* Milky Way *   June 14th, 2010 3:58 pm ET

I have no right to condemn the parents of Michael!
God will judge! And I should respect parents,
who gave to us a miracle! And this miracle called Michael Jackson!

Gary   June 14th, 2010 3:58 pm ET

Why all the tears? MJ was a drug user and a child molester.His dad probably has a point. Everyone wanted to ignore the truth until it was too late.

Joe Jackson was and is an abusive father and husband. His blaming Katherine exposes his psychological abuse of his family.

Kris   June 14th, 2010 4:30 pm ET

Though I dont think anyone is to blame for Michael' s death except MJ himself AND Dr. Murray, Katherine is not completely innocent of everything, like robbing Michael of his childhood. She went along with everything Joe made the kids do, and even though she was never believed to be physically abusive towards the kids like Joe was., she allowed for the beatings and for the kids to miss school and be forced to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. She also talked Michael into doing the Victory tour with his brothers back in 84 since she knew Michael would say no to his father. Michael was needed for the Victory tour so that tickets would sell out; otherwise no one really cared about the other Jackson brothers. Katherine did not protect Michael from his over-bearing, cruel, and manupulative father and allowed Joe to use his children. Joe Jackson needs to kick the bucket because we are sick of this bottomfeeder, adulterer, and JOKE of a father.

Poor Katherine...just sickening.

Jann in Denver   June 14th, 2010 4:33 pm ET

Joe Jackson is obviously a narcissistic psychopath. Why does CNN give this fool any press? I feel sorry for Katherine to a degree, however she did allow this clown abuse her and her children for years.

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Martin   June 14th, 2010 4:41 pm ET

There's plenty of blame to go around. When someone gets that rich and that out of touch, it's no surprise that things end so horribly. There's just no one to tell you NO. Just the thought that he was on an intravenous drip makes me shudder! I think Michael must have been freaking out at the idea of making a comeback at age 50, when everyone expected him to still move like he was age 25. What a set-up for failure.

Howard Stern   June 14th, 2010 4:42 pm ET

Jackson was child molester, this CNN will not print because it is the truth. He paid off little kids to keep his sick life from being exposed. The Jackson family lived off the coat tails of a child molester.

babycarie   June 14th, 2010 4:42 pm ET

A motion needs to be addressed in court via the Attorney General and Medical Board...he can practice until then. This judge does not want to overturn the initial judge. Judge cited Grey vs Superior Court
Murray cannot use propofol...well, great! And in the meantime...

Eddie Jones and Geraldine Hughes....justice for Michael!
Murray left Michael alone...and Michael died alone.
August is next court date. Too tragic.

Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Lori - Justice for Michael   June 14th, 2010 4:43 pm ET

It's over. Murray keeps his med license. Preliminary hearing is set for August 23, 2010.

We all know that Joe abused his children, obviously he feels guilty and now is trying to shift the blame on poor Katherine. Michael didn't want his father near him. RIP Michael & best wishes to Katherine x

babycarie   June 14th, 2010 4:48 pm ET

How does Katherine sit next to Joe in court after what he said. She has strength beyond words. Now I know how Michael survived as long as he did amidst all the cruelty.

Hello there and thank you for your response on the previous blog...You are always so thoughtful and compassionate Maria.
I agree with Mr.A, I believe this "comment" regarding dear Katherine was taken out of context sadly to feed someones selfish ego....shameful.

I hope that your doing well...thank you always for your sunshine.

Mr.Anonymous,How have you been? You have brought some sunshine to me this day .Thank you ...Let me say this ,I agree with your comment. Michael forgave his father a long time ago ,and we too need to do the same .His father is up in age now ,and it does no good to spew hurtful ,words ,comments curses about him. I feel it is disrespectful ,he is and will always be Michael 's father.
And as far as that Tabloid and all the others go ...'windows and fireplaces,wood buring stoves' that is there purpose ,that is where they all belong !
Lastly ,I am sure True will accept your aplolgy ,and and you have set another fine example for us! The offer still stands ,to share a pot of tea with you ,and the tree has its arms stretched out to you Mr A. Hope to see you soon ,have a nice evening /morning. Love ,and many many Hugs...I have missed you here ...Maria C.

You are a very mis-informed and a seemingly delusional mad person, if you really think that it was Joe Jackson that molded the character of his children. To hear you revel at his behavior is grossly akin to kissing the posterior's of Idi Amin or Adolph Hitler and enjoying it.

You allow me to be very concerned that you may be raising children while you are emulating his well publicized untoward behavior directed at his children, that in today's world would get him incarcerated. You do stand out as a billboard to warn the world that there are cruel and unusual people out there that are still destroying the childhoods of innocents and setting them up for a life of hell/failure. Shame on you im-puritan pilgrim...this is the twenty first century where a (harlot)/madame is still considered to be a bit sleazy and you prove the point with a peek into the knickers of your mind which, no doubt, has escaped thought cleansing for ions..The world is laughing or crying at your one, hopefully takes you serious...and believeable...

ellen   June 14th, 2010 6:04 pm ET

Everybody Michael associated with bears some of the blame for his death, including both his dad and his mother. He was completely out of control for decades and they indulged him and kept quiet.

ellen   June 14th, 2010 6:09 pm ET

I'm with you, Gary. As for everybody else, Michael Jackson crashed and burned right in front of the entire universe. The whole world knows what happened to that guy. Denying it doesn't change anything.

ANASTACIA   June 14th, 2010 6:10 pm ET

Katherine is a mom and Michael is her son. Mothers never want to bury their children. All the fame or money does not change those facts. she loved him and by the terms of his will he loved her dearly.
Janet gave an interview stating that the family tried to get Micheal help. We all know how hard it it is to conduct an intervention with an addict. Micheal cut them off when they tried to get him help. Micheal was living a very dangerous existence. Stop the blame game. Joe is an old man and Katherine's heart is forever broken. 3 beautiful children need their love and care. For the sake of those children Joe should not say these things. Words hurt more than feelings.

I can't believe this nonsense is still being posted here. Do you really believe, you all, his fans, who claim to love him, do you really believe he would do this to HIS FAMILY. Have you seen what they've been gong through with this, court trials, non stop media, paparazzi following them all over, his children being stalked and followed and living AT ENCINO...not with him.

Do you really think Michael Jackson would do this, NO! He died.

Believe it and stop your nonsense. It's rediculous!

just some other tabloid trash posted here by CNN to "keep the ball rolling"; so to all those who are now bashing Joe for what he "allegedly" told a tabloid (! wow, credible source, right?), are you really using your common sense here? did any of you really heard those words from Joe's own mouth?
the story is repeating again and again ... a tabloid is printing some trash and everyone jumps in and takes that as pure truth!
what about checking out your sources?
it's almost one year now, but the learning process seems to be quite an impossible task to tackle for some ...

Mr. A

I won't get cute with the 'A', but there is enough audio/video of Joe Jackson for anyone to gain insight into what he really was/is and enough to bank supportive evidence to understand why his children do not look up to him, rather than glare sideways when they are around him. Your attempt to sugar coat the family affairs has too much fantasy written into forlorn ideology, and you grabbed the salt shaker and peppered your own comments with irony, which may have been your intent. You are a mis-read and should say what you really feel without hiding it under the mushrooms of illusion..

Afternoon Everyone.
Not sure if I was going to post on this article above. I feel that what ever is happening in the Jackson family is really none of our business and when I first read this article yesterday, I smh and said here we go again. It seems that they never really print good things about the jackson Family, only bad stuff which I for one does not buy into. So only thing I can do is repost my Recipe for Happiness again. Seem that we need to show what it is like not to believe everything in print/garage like this.

Recipe for a Happy Home
In a large Bowl of Love Mix" Blend in:
2 cups of Faith 1 cup of forgiveness
2 cups of patience 2 teaspoons of kindness
1 cup of sympathy 1/2 cup of courage
Pour into a heart of joy, sprinkle with harmony, Top with a spread of understanding, sweeten with respect and bake in oven of trust.
Serve it with a tender smile.
Trust the past in God's mercy, the present to God's Love and the future to God's providence.
The rest can handle itself.... Please have a Bless Day.

Hi. Enjoyed your post today. As always, you find kindness in everything,. Thank you my friend. Hugs Letta

Cajazz76:24:8   June 14th, 2010 7:10 pm ET


My response to the ridiculous way you look up to and idolize Joe Jackson was, as expected, removed from this site. It was because I was not kind in my remarks toward your characterization of the 'father who wasn't' and 'selfish intentioned one' who was in the lives of the Jackson family. I'll not reiterate my frustration with your love for the posterior of a greedy and uncaring man who left demons to chill the nights of his offspring, still. Sadness and shame you distribute with your random words, wisdom and valid concern for the good welfare of children evades you.

It's wonderful to see you too.
The poems you shared were filled with heartfelt emotion...


I'm doing fantastic thank you.
Your pleasant comments are always a joy.

@"Pixie Dust" @Letta

Your welcome. That video "Free Hugs" certainly makes a statement.
It's such a simple concept really it's easy, it's free and most importantly
it warms the human spirit... Our spirit can always use uplifting.
The human touch increases longevity, promotes contentment and affords us comfort.
We should make this a World wide initiative as many of us here reside in different parts of the World... Wouldn't that be wonderful?

@Baby Carie

Hello there Carie... I'm certain your transition into parenthood has been a beautiful Blessing.
Enjoy the moments...


Unconditional Love...."That kind of Love requires understanding and acceptance."...So incredibly true.
A warm thank you for your comment.

Joe Jackson is Michael's father and should be respected. Michael forgave him some time ago and furthermore I think this latest story is just a fabrication. I find it impossible to believe it could be true.

People write negatives things, cause they feel that's what sells. Good news to them, doesn't sell.

More drama.

K.B.   June 14th, 2010 7:25 pm ET

It's funny Joe Jackson is the one that Michael never had a nice thing to say about...If it weren't for Katherine Jackson, Michael would have been dead a long time ago.Katherine was the one who was always a a steady in his life.For Joe the money hungry father who did nothing but abuse him and all he wanted Michel to do is make money for him.He wasn't allowed to call him father nor did Michael even want to.Everyone knows that this is just another way for him to try and make more money off of his dead son.I think if Joe Jackson was a better father Michael would have been a happier person all around and wouldn't have felt the need to try to invent another childhood for himself...If you really want to get down to it Joe! It is your fault along with these doctors that Michael is dead! Stop trying to make money off of your dead son...You don't deserve one cent!

"I don't have ability to revisit the actions of one of my colleagues. I do not have jurisdiction to revisit this matter. It doesn't have anything to do with how I feel or what I think. It has to do with the law and this court's ability to follow the law."
But Murray WILL stand trial for involuntary manslaughter...and that is when he will be found grossly negligent and go to prison!!! No medical license required!! I have faith in the system and it will see that justice is served!!
The system found Michael not time to find Murray guilty!!!!
And all the bible beaters in Texas praising Jesus for a murder can go visit him behind bars!!

Vi   June 14th, 2010 7:51 pm ET

We can blame everybody for it but at the end of the day, I think it is his incredible status as superstar extraordinaire that did it for him. I've seen very nice people even in their thirties suddenly changed when they achieve a good amount of success. A paranoia that they can not trust anyone or that their bright star may suddenly disappear, or that they have to keep getting better regardless of the price they have to pay. With those kidns of paranoia, I don;t think you would be able to sleep.

God please watch over Michaels kids and protect them from the harm that can be created by the media. Joe Jackson should not blame Katerine but he was in pain and he probably didn't mean to directly blame her. This family needs space right now...remember that Michael was a real person who is being missed by his REAL family..children, brothers, sisters, friends, parents. Please don't make stories out of innocent things.

True To You ! Hoping you are having a fine day ! .I just read your poem to me ,and let me begin by saying ,if there were times I didnt respond to you ,while you were in 'misery' ,Please accept my humble apologies ,for any and All offenses to you True! At times ,I say way too much ,and my emotions overshadow my typing ! I am sure you met no harm to anyone here ,that is not how i envision you ,There was atime when i commented to you about another incident here ,remember? No need to go back ,but I do remember showing some empathy to you .
It is my wish to move forward ,let bygones be bygones ,and it is not in my heart ,to come here and intentionally ignore anyone,I have said 'Love to you All',on many occasions ,and I truly do mean it!
After what Michael went thru ,I promised myself to always where and when I can ,to respesctfully ,come to the Aide ,of my friends and family,not to be silent ,when I feel someone has been hurt ,as Michael has been.Can you understand ? I sense that you are warm person ,and I hope you will forgive me if in any way I have hurt or upset you ! Lastly I leave you with this beautiful quote;
'The weak can never forgive ,forgiveness is the attribute of the Strong '. M. Ghandi '.....Can we All be strong ? Michael certainly was..... Love to you Maria C.

to some who think this article is "tabloid trash" or there is no proof of joe "allegedly" talking to the press, get a clue because joe was recorded on camera!!!! part of the interview is up on NOTW site and also youtube. joe got paid and he aired the family laundry. I really hope they pay joe some more to keep on spilling.

the last time I checked this is a Larry King blog, not a jackson clan fansite, so posters should feel free to give their opinion on the article at hand.

It is sad for his mother

but he paid boys to drop allegations of sexual abuse...twice that we know of.

he was not a king, he was a child molestor.

stop canonizing him.

Wayne   June 14th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

The great thing about Micheal Jackson's father is despite if there were failures in the growth of (Years of fame) it was his dream and determination that did it for the most part. And I guess forgives and acceptance is a great thing. I think Micheal Jackson;s father while not being perfect he looked out for his kids. The brothers give him credit for that and he's their dad. So that's honorable.

But blaming the mother "while" it may in fact be true to some degree it cannot be 100% true. Why? Micheal Jackson was an adult. Very famous like Elvis and it;s hard to save a man from him self. Especially when they carry the "power" "fame" of the world. It must not be easy for such a family to handle such fame. Janette is just as great as Micheal and the brother are great too.

This situation is extremely "Odd" to some sort. Why? Think about it. John Lennon said the "Genesis" has some sort of struggle.
He was talented from a little child and had a odd life compared to a regular person. He was admired by the world and had major hits like The Beatles. "Off the wall" Sort of the story of his life. Then while he was admired he went through the prejudice error (Time Period). And probably being a touch of white helped. Then because he was thought to be weird (maybe he was) and he won the case against him but by that time it ruined his star power. It was probably very painful for Micheal to have done that concert. Because he knew people would also be thinking those terrible things. So he probably had trouble trusting his family... Perhaps he trusted the wrong people and made terrible mistakes. So one thing lead to another and then Micheal's gone. I have no idea if he did what they said he did but it never took away from the fact he was extremely talent. So it's never easy. It would have been good for the parents to be there for him right after the court. I do realize it must have been difficult. So massive mistakes were made. It's not the first time nor the last and it's funny how people refuse to own the blame regardless. That's my experience in life. It's human nature and Micheal has a sing called Human Nature". I believe healing would be great and a celebration of Micheal's life & acknowledging the fact that Micheal lives and through his talent he brought great joy to millions in the world but he suffered too.

Micheal's brothers and sisters are honorable people for really caring about their brother but they were probably helpless too. Hopefully they can work it out.. "We can work it out" Beatles.

Peace & Love

Judie   June 14th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

Some need to get informed and stop passing judgement.
MJ was cleared of all allegations and the FBI didn't have one bit of evidence to prove the allegations of abuse in his case. You might want to bring facts or proof with statements like this.

Diane in Minneapolis   June 14th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

@ Devin

Everything you just said has been proven false. The media only reported the prosecution side of the court proceedings....not the defense side. Whenthey called witnesses to the stand to talk about the molestation their stories all fell apart and the jury were rolling their eyes. None of that was reported but it is in the transcripts.

Marguerite   June 14th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

I know it is human nature to want to place blame on others. But it needs to stop. Enough is enough.

Beverly - Chicago   June 14th, 2010 10:23 pm ET

I just wanted to add something to my previous post about finding it impossible to believe that Joe would say something like that to Katherine. I shouldn't have said that I found it "impossible to believe" because in those kind of circumstances and under that type of duress, people are capable of saying lots of things they don't really mean and are speaking from emotion. So, it is possible that he might have said something like that to her under those extremely difficult circumstances, but that's presuming that Michael is dead which he is not. So, I still don't believe it!

The next step in the trial process has happened. Judge Pastor has docketed the date for the preliminary hearing for 23 August. That brings us closer to trial. At that time we may find out what the Prosecution has on Murray and what avenue the Defense is going to pursue. Hopefully there will be enough evidence that Murray will be bound over for trial.

babycarie   June 14th, 2010 10:45 pm ET

To all who are still in doubt of Michael's innocence, please read 'Michael Jackson Conspiracy' by Aphrodite really paints a very clear picture of the extortion and witch hunt that became his nightmare. Read this book or try and find Aphrodite and/or Tom Mesereau on youtube and listen to them...really listen to them. These are very credible people who believe in Michael's innocence. They are not family and have nothing to gain.

Joe's words speak for themselves in the video tape. Katherine is the one who must come to terms with what he said...but the tabloids did not do this to him...unlike Michael, Joe is not a victim here, Katherine is.

And this is a Michael Jackson blog, not a social circle...mods, please monitor the nonsense. Thanks.

Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Katherine's face says it all...her pain is evident and I hope her broken heart is healing.

Marguerite   June 14th, 2010 10:49 pm ET

Just be very careful where you purchase the book .....'Michael Jackson Conspiracy' by Aphrodite Jones. I purchased the book almost 2 months ago and to date, have not received it.

So please be very careful where you purchase this book!!!!!

Marguerite   June 14th, 2010 11:51 pm ET

Pixie Dust- I am fantastic and I had a wonderful day. How are you doing and how was your day?

Butterfly- The articles get stranger every day and has me wondering every day waht is going to happen

Mary Jane-- I can go you one better. The first part of Jan I ordered the Michael Jackson Opus through TicketMaster. I have not received it yet. When I talked to ticketmaster they said I had to email Opus people and they gave me the email address. The Opus people never did reply back to me. Last month (May) Ticketmaster called us and said we could have our money back. Because every time they (ticketmaster) emailed and called the Opus people no one would answer their calls and emails. Ticketmaster also told us that no one that ordered the Michael Jackson Opus through them has received the MJ Opus. Ticketmaster also told us it was as if the MJ Opus book did not exist and they did not understand any of it at all. It justs leavs you wondering.....What the heck (putting it nicely).

OMG! how dare he tells a mother that she is responsible for his son's death. if anybody is responsible it's joe himself that abused michael when he was just an innocent child and made him suffer. he made michael depressed.


dear, carie, I admire your strength so much. you are still fighting here! I can't imagine getting into it with these believers again. after a year, murray is still walking free as if he deserves it and we have to convince people that micheal is really gone! I was very disappointed today that they did not suspend murray's license. I don't know what it takes for the judge to realize that this man is actually a danger for the society and he needs to pay for what he has done.

Howard Stern...could you be paid off if it was your kid who was molested? I don't know if you have kids or not, but I can say there isn't an amount of money big enough to pay me off. Those folks were paid off because they were obviously in it for the money. Michael was an easy, very rich target.

Angel Pie   June 15th, 2010 1:17 am ET

Well looks like my previous post wasn't suitable to post I suppose, maybe it should have been more vile like others whose posts were far more worse..

Anyway I wish everyone stop attacking Joe and the family. Michael did forgive his father but it seems his fans won't. Michael loves his family but like any other family they have their ups and downs. Joe may have been cruel, but it was Joe who also helped his sons make a mark on the music industry. When you attack Joe your attacking Michael. They don't need public condemnation. Michael will never forget but he can forgive, and I wish others can do the same. I pray that those who are rude online are not like that in person. This world is already filled with hate, let us not be the ones to add more to it.

The best way to keep Michael's memory alive is to love and respect one another.

@ James B –
"Did you not hear Michael say in one of his interview that he would not give up the life he had in exchange for a different childhood? I'm sure you did.
Some are a little hard of hearing James =)

We all want happiness and dread the thought of rain.
When the sun fails to shine, we worry and complain.
We forget that God above is infinitely wise,
and sometimes our ails are blessings in disguise.
For if we're always happy filled with sunshine and cheer,
our hearts would hold no mercy for others who shed tears.
So when trouble comes knocking, remember to stay strong.
Rainbows always follow the storm and dark clouds never stay long.

Angels frome above , please protect the ones we Love.

The video of Joe with NOTW. From Joe's mouth to your ears.

The media cannot be blamed for this one. Joe did the video and the interview. Yes, NOTW is tabloid trash but the blame belongs on Joe this time around.

Respect hummm. If the Jackson Family would stop giving interviews (like Katherine) perhaps they would earn more public respect. Each member has a different opinion on subjects and the media plays on that 100%. Silence is golden.

Respect hummm. Any father or human being that would have his child strip naked, then put oil on his entire body, then hold him and lash him with an ironing cord is someone I will never respect. Joe admitted he spanked MJ, but never beat him. The correct word is abuse. No, this example of abuse per MJ (on tape in his own words) was not carried out in every household in America.

MJ said he forgave Joe during his Oxford Speech in 2001, yet MJ chose to disinherit Joe in his Trust written in 2002.

I would love to meet you in August. What an honor it would be for me. You truly stand behind your statements of love and always speak from your heart. You are admired.

An FYI today regarding Judge Pastor's decision regarding CM's medical license.

California Medical Board Regulations
2220.5. (a) The Medical Board of California is the only licensing
board that is authorized to investigate or commence disciplinary
actions relating to physicians and surgeons who have been issued a
certificate pursuant to Section 2050.

The California Medical Board takes a very long time to investigate and also allows a doctor to defend his actions. This is part of their procedure. Jerry Brown is/was trying to expedite the Medical Boards process only.

Michael came down to see me, third day after he was killed . working on his new poster .I call it Michael Jackson "life after death" It was a site to see. I will show everybody what I've seen . Publishing donations needed

I highly recommend you contact the Michael Jackson Estate in Los Angeles, California for permission to publish your poster.

To Queen Lateefah: Glad your dad beat you to teach you a lesson. It's a shame, because all that time you spent being an abused child, perhaps you could have learned grammar, spelling, and other important lessons, such as child abuse is not permissive nor beneficial to a child.
All the best!

Lori - Justice for Michael   June 15th, 2010 5:16 am ET

@marguerite...that is interesting regarding the Opus. I ordered mine through Ticketmaster during the presale period last fall and received it just before Christmas. I still receive emails from Karaken Opus from time to time. However, I have not received any word from them regarding the interactive function the MJ OPus was supposed to have. I am aware of other people who ordered through Ticketmaster that have received their copies of the Opus. Odd that you are having such an issue. I wonder if the problem is that Opus may have sold out all of the print run for the Opus and it is no longer available? Or is delayed due to an additional printing?

I am glad he is dead but nobody is to blame but himself. People die everyday fighting for a cause, he just killed himself for what?

@ Pixie Dust

Yes, I would not joke around about having an earthquake. As I was typing... the ground under my feet was moving ... it knocked out my connection right after I hit the send..... since we have everything buried in the ground. No phone, electric or cable lines above ground here. Google...

Update: 5.7 Magnitude earthquake shakes Los Angeles, 13 aftershocks recorded

Check the time of the earthquake on the news and when I posted it. You will see it was at that same time.

I'll shout "Michael is Alive" from the highest rooftop. That is not only what I believe, it's what I KNOW...from researching and studying the facts for a year. I am no longer here to debate this...just to spread positive thoughts and L.O.V.E., which this blog, especially now, sorely needs. The only disrespect I see here is directed at Joe Jackson, who Michael forgave a long time ago. I was severely hurt by my dad for almost my entire lifetime, but I don't come on here and trash him to no end. I also had to release the anger and forgive him. The hurt is always there, but you have to let go and move on with your life. You'll never survive if you keep letting that anger and negativity fester within yourself. You'll die a lonely, sick, bitter person. I totally agree with Angel Pie in that attacking Michael's family is attacking Michael himself. Some truly just do not understand his message. God Bless. Have a beautiful day. 🙂

The beat goes on........more twists and turns.........more grist for the mill.

I hope the Jackson Family will be able to find peace sometime soon. They are long overdue it I think.

I do not want to judge their family and I will not judge their family. I do not know them personally. We are only going by what the media has put out there and it has been shown that they can get things wrong. So I will reserve my judgement on this.

There is no need to bad-mouth the family either. What if it were your family would you like to hear all the horrible things said about them. Maybe they have all grown rhineoceros skins or have had to over the years, but I think words still hurt.

With regards Dr Conrad Murray, isn't it obvious.

@I will hold your hand

That was beutifull what you wrote.... thank you.You captured the feeling of most of us because we all miss Michael may he rest in peace always.Sorry for any typos but its been a rather emotional day.......yes it is still the 14th here in Oz.


True you express yourself in ryme
and I have taken the time
to read your thoughts about
the Man you care about..... continue the way you do
because your feeling for Michael is true.....

Marguerite   June 15th, 2010 8:21 am ET

Lori- All I know is what ticketmaster told us. I ordered it back in January and here it is 5 months later and no MJ Opus. I emailed them and they did not get back to me. Ticketmaster emailed them and called them and they never received an email from them and the Opus people did not answer their phone calls. As I said in the other email they told us no one that ordered the Opus through them received it. It was as if the Opus did not exist.

Shelli- You are very welcome.

babycarie   June 15th, 2010 8:48 am ET

SUZIE Q!!!!!!!!!
YES!! Murray supporters spewing smiley faces and mocking Michael's death. The photo above of Katherine's grief speaks to any sane human being...that look on her face is grief and pain beyond words. To mock that with laughter and smiley faces is inconceivable. Even new bloggers see the ridiculousness of these blogs and have been commenting. Michael was not a liar, freak, fake, joke...and the autopsy report and all the agencies that have investigated his DEATH would not play some circus game...they could not go along as it would be against their positions and against the law...yet the ignorance and mocking continues. Their 'research' (that is just too pathetic) consists of youtube fan made videos, and cut and paste articles. Our 'knowledge' and TRUTH comes from the DA, the LAPD, the coroners office, the family, yet we are the ones who do not see the circus joke that they see as Michael Jackson.
We will always be there!
We know the truth!
Murray will pay one way or the other. Look at the photos of him on TMZ...he is pure evil, flat affect,...a killer.
Love to you my Suzie Q!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.

kdinla   June 15th, 2010 9:04 am ET

Joe Jackson has shown us time and time again that he will say any outrageous thing that will get his name in the news. The man is desperate to see his name in print and his face on TV and doesn't care who he has to hurt to do it.

@True to You – lay off the drugs, dude. Seriously.

leafhater   June 15th, 2010 9:20 am ET

Why would he say that in public? That's low way low even for him.

22Tango   June 15th, 2010 9:58 am ET

Joe Jackson can't hurt Michael anymore, so he moves on to the next best thing - Michael's Mom. Only Michael can take full responsibility for his life choices. He was an adult. But his allegiance stayed with his mother in the end which says a lot.

Virginia   June 15th, 2010 10:25 am ET

Joe Jackson was a monster. All he ever wanted was the fame and money that the kids earned. If beating them made it happen, he was up for it. That dirty B shouldn't be allowed to profit at all from Michael's estate.

mary u from ohio   June 15th, 2010 10:47 am ET

I see the media is still at it...if mean spirited people would stop all the blaming of the family then the media would have nothing to write...
If all this was true what Joe said then why wasn't this brought out at the beginning..
Wake up people...
I Love the family... I love you Mike
We are to stay positive with no hate ..
Mike i know this has to hurt you seeing the mean.
You stay stong remember i am standing by your side holding you hand..
Love to you and you Family..

if what the press is reporting here is true , this family is so mental and greedy . all they care about is the michael jackson gravey train is over . money , money , money discusting .did anyone love michael just for michael , or just his money and influence . how sad for michael .outside his kids , all the rest only cared about his money .

BERTHA CECILIA URDINOLA ALJURE – Wageningen – Holland June 15th, 2010 9:49 am ET
Yes...who is paying the freight...and where is Tohme and Randy Philips, and Dileo for that ,matter?? They were all over the news right after MIchael died until questions started to arise as to what really happened and a conspiracy theory was floating around. I will always believe Murray acted on payment and demands of others, or that he walked away that morning so others could do the job and he took the fall knowing he would have a paid defense and would walk or spend just a few years behind bars then have a huge bank account to look forward to. Murray was for sale to the highest bidder and he really had nothing to lose because he was in financial ruins, with owed child support etc. That catalog was and still is evil....I fear for MJ3. Money killed MIchael, and they will inherit millions in addition to the catalog. Thank God Michael stipulated in his will that his children will not receive their entire inheritance until they turn 40....Michael knew...he knew that vultures would surround his children the same way they did him.
Such a tragedy. And all for money.

@ Rhonda – Thank you for those lovely words. Hope and Pray your doing well. Your in my prayers.

OOO keep up the good work. Love seeing some positive coming from this blog. Your daily words help me start a good day – keep it up. What else? o darn I forgot lol

@ Maria Copelli – Awwww thank you for your kind words. You too are such an Angel. I enjoy reading your posts also. Michael would have never approved of this infighting. I did make a post but they posted it. I assume because it was far more harsher yet I saw other posts which are vile being posted – go figure.

Well I am heading off to work, and hope you all have a great day.

Remember Folks: Don't believe everything you read even if it is an article posted on the Larry King Blog. We don't know if Joe made that statement. Without no proof everyone went on a rampage against him. I guess many took the hook, line and sinker. So the next article that shows up on here or anywhere else that matter like those tabloid trash magazine or tv channels, don't believe everything until it can be verify – Thank you.

kdinla June 15th, 2010 9:04 am ET
Agreed...remember how Joe pimped his record company the day after Michael died...unreal.

Joe...he is an oddity that maybe in his era/his mind made sense but abuse is never tolerable. Michael lost out on life because he had a God given talent and was forced into the entertainment world much too soon. Many, including Joe, believe Joe is why Michael got to such heights...I disagree...I believe Michal was destined to be Michael Jackson and maybe if he were able to grow into his own, in his own time, after enjoying a normal childhood, he would have been a much happier Michael Jackson and we would be celebrating him and not mourning him. Joe needs to be angry at those responsible for killing his son and not sell sensational stories for profit causing even more pain for Katherine. Look at her face in that photo as she gazes at the coffin holding her son...her expression is palpable

tom   June 15th, 2010 12:02 pm ET

his disgusting children exploiting mother and father killed him many years ago – his demise was obvious – great that they now have access to his children AND his money – wonder what Mummy Katey will do with it. Lets wait for the new Jackson 3 or smth like that. Daddy is already prepared......

cris   June 15th, 2010 12:19 pm ET

skim what is being celebrated is the talent, influence and the positives.

lewwho   June 15th, 2010 12:22 pm ET

Michael was an adult and he made his choices which took his life. I watched him over the years become more frantic about his appearance, money, life in general. He mistrusted the people and fans that really cared about him and trusted too much in scheming-greedy people, therefore surrounding himself with danger.
No one would say no to him because they wanted to use him for what they could get from being around him, including his father.......the idiot.

greasesicle   June 15th, 2010 12:32 pm ET

MikeyNYC   June 15th, 2010 12:51 pm ET

Perhaps if Joe Jackson hadn't been such a demanding, domineering, physically and emotionally abusive tyrant to his family, especially his children, perhaps Michael would still be alive today, too. I don't understand where Joe Jackson has the umitigated gall to criticize his wife and blame her for Michael's death. Check a mirror, Joe, and you'll see the person who helped Michael along to be the mentally ill drug addict that he was when he died!

"Pixie Dust "   June 15th, 2010 12:53 pm ET

How far do people think they have to go.Judging, ridiculing nit picking at Michael and his family.Now people are saying nasty things about his children.Get real people.Michael does not deserve any of this what so ever.Your jealousy has gotten the best of you.Take a good look in the mirror,or if you don't have one reevaluate your own lives.Is it a perfect life, do people judge you? Do you like it? I think not, everyone has to start living their own lives and let others live theirs. As human beings do we not all deserve this.I honestly think we do.Michael, his children,and his family deserve this as well.So please before you speak ill about the Jackson's question you own life and family.(Smiles) to all.

@ Margueritte and @Lori –

FYI – like Lori, I ordered my Opus via Ticketmaster in the pre-sale timeframe and received it just before Christmas. I had a few emails from Kraaken but have not had one for a long time so I don't know anything about the interactive piece that supposedly goes with it.

Sam   June 15th, 2010 1:36 pm ET

Look at that photo.
The look on her face is crushed.
The look on his face is smirking.
That's all that needs to be said.

Lori - Justice for Michael   June 15th, 2010 1:42 pm ET

@Marguerite...that is very interesting. I am sorry you did not receive your copy of the Opus, but you did get your money back, correct? There still seems to be a website and options for ordering, so this information is very confusing. As I said, I did receive my copy just as they said I would right after it was published. Maybe we should all band together and contact Kraaken about this. I wonder if they have twitter?


Lori - Justice for Michael   June 15th, 2010 1:49 pm ET

There is always going to be some kind of media report to stir the pot, especially since there was a court hearing on the 14th . Maybe things will settle down a bit until the next court date. Or not. I suppose things will stay churned up through June. *sigh*

Just think of the BET awards & Joe on the red carpet a few days after Michael's death when the reporter was asking him questions regarding Michael, he was more interested in promoting his record company, I think that tells the whole story.

Katherine has been through enough & now this comment from Joe. Michael must be rolling over in his grave, he loved her so very much.

God Bless you Katherine & famlly.

Maria C- one has to really wonder what is this family really doing to society that they get negative comments all the time. A lot of people love to throw the spotlight on others and their faults and they can't take it when that is done to them. The bottom line is that is MJ's family, if he felt that they were that horrible, he wouldn't of left his children to be around people he knew they would be around. Just like we all here would like to be forgiven for the wrong that we do, MJ forgave his father. Why are you holding a grudge? Did he harm you? If his children learned to forgive why are you throwing stones? Because a tabloid publication put out a snippet of an interview? Did you hear what he was asked? Do you really know what that answer was in reference to? No family is perfect.

babycarie   June 15th, 2010 4:06 pm ET

What is very clear is the pain and agony on Katherine's face in this photo...she is looking at Michael's coffin during his funeral...and her pain is reality...just like Michael's death is reality.
I am sure that if faith would bring Michael back, Katherine would have set up residence in church...but no amount of faith or sermons will change the fact that Michael died almost one year ago.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Just read in the WSJ that "Ubisoft Entertainment" plans to release a video game based on Michael Jackson's music. Players earn points by emulating MJ's signature dance moves choreagraphed to his best-known songs. Game has motion-sensing interface and will be used for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii.

Game will be ready for Christmas sales.

Character assinations .....Injustice ' Sad to say this has been reflected here on this Blog today ,yesterday ,I hope not tomorrow . 'Shameful Episodes ' lets help put an end to them ....Love Maria C.

With great remark, and great divide
"My kindgdom for a day" Mike cried
And then he died
For those who hate and those who seek
The heart of a star is merely meek
Don't throw a stone to those who are nearer
Show some L.O.V.E. for The Man in the Mirror

R.I.P. Michael Joseph Jackson

The greatest lost of all..... is the loss of your child. It will tear your heart to shreds as you bleed from the pain and rip families apart as everyone deals with their sorrow and grief differently.

Katherine is profoundly mourning the loss of her son. She is immersed in the sorrow of her loss. Her heart deeply aches .... this is the threshold where emotional pain has moved into the physical pain. As @ Carie stated, you can see it in her eyes. The sadness and profound grief. Its hard to see....

Joe is at the angry stage of his grieving and wants to blame everyone for his son's death. He is lashing out at everyone.... because of his pain and grief over Michael. His heart aches also. Do not just look just at his behavior. Look deeper.........

Most men handle pain through anger. It is easier for them to be angry then devastated and swimming in emotional pain.... It takes a very 'special' man who can stay in his pain.....

babycarie   June 15th, 2010 5:15 pm ET

Joe is not a victim of the media here...he did this to himself.
Joe made harsh false statements for a price not caring who got hurt...true Joe fashion.

Dodie   June 15th, 2010 5:48 pm ET

It's a twisted world when people think it's okay to exploit your kids and make money off them. I guess it's okay to allow your husband to beat your too kids? Every single Jackson in that family is a mess of a human being. I am not saying that Michael wasn't talented cause he was brilliant but he would have been more brilliant without having all that garbage pilled on him.
Good job Joe and Katherine

jenna   June 15th, 2010 6:31 pm ET

Oh Michael, your mother Katherine grieves for you just as Mary grieved her son.

No matter how hated your father Joseph is, he had a purpose and he gave the world the greatest gift, just as a Joseph did thousands of years ago.

You were innocent, tortured and hated for no reason, those who you thought were your friends turned against you and left you, you were very misunderstood just as Jesus was.

Your presence was magic and your message of love and peace for humanity will live forever.

RIP Your Majesty MJ!

Maria Copelli   June 15th, 2010 8:18 pm ET

missing m.j. ,Nice to see you here today! Thank you for the positive comment ,This horrible talk on here is very upsetting ,and unsettling .Peace,and understinding is in tall order .Love to you Maria C.

Jenna......I do not understand how you can make such a statement ! The Jacksons ,are a family unit just like any other imperfect family.Do any of us know of a'Perfect' family ? If so I would be the first in line to meet them ! (smile)
Sadly this is the result I fear of media Lies ,and hatred and even yes Jealousy .These types of comments ,sometimes ....are based on 'misinformed ' individuals ,who tend to let's say distort the truth ! The lies against Michael Jackson ,have been distorted ,beyond 'recognition'.
I will say ,please read the latest article by Mr.Charles Thomson,now that is truth waiting to be ......digested . May you find the truth ...and may it set you free.Peace ...Maria C.

SuzieQ   June 15th, 2010 8:56 pm ET

@Sim ur post 11;25, tOM @12:02, Jim 11:48
Have you ever heard of it you do not have nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all? You are making Judgment on something that you person have no details on. Meaning, did you happen to see anything that you stated in comments with your own eyes, If, you was not present at the time you should not point fingers at anyone, including Michael. You was not there, so how can you make that comment? This is not very nice of either of you.


Rhonda   June 15th, 2010 10:06 pm ET


Well, it seems as though things haven't changed a bit. Did you not learn anything from the witnesses that came out and said that almost all the stuff stated from the media about the trial in 2005 was all lies. That family got on the stand and lied and it was proven that they lied. Michael is not a drug addict and unless you have personally seen him do drugs then you shouldn't be saying that he is. I am in no way a Murray supporter and never have been and will never be one.....No person would be walking around free this long of a time if they had set inside a police station and said.....Oh by the way, I killed someone and that someone is a famous person. They would not have just let him walk out after confessing to a murder. Please do not call Michael an addict when you don't know that he was.....

Much Love

Linda   June 15th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

I actually like Joseph and feel that thngs in his childhood have made him into the man he is today. I believe that he is in the early stages dementia and one of his sons needs to make sure they are with their parents during public outings. That's why we are the sandwich genration.

Marguerite   June 15th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

Mary Jane- You are very welcome.

Everyone- The word of the day is "ignore". These new people are trying to get a reaction out of you. Ignore them.

Not Invincible (IYKWIM)   June 15th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

Maybe I'm late on this, but has anyone else seen The Michael Jackson Trials on the Documentary Channel? I was hesitant to watch because of the name, but wow. Anyone else seen it?

Maria Copelli   June 15th, 2010 10:53 pm ET

Jenna,I am so sorry that post to you ,was not for you at all! It was for someone else ,Please know what You wrote ,Jenna was very beautiful.I aplolgize ,there were so many ,negative comments ,today ...I appreciate what you wrote ,thank you Jenna.Love and abundant peace Maria C.

Maria Copelli   June 15th, 2010 11:00 pm ET

Valarie ,The comment I posted to Jenna was intended to be posted to you.@ 8;18p.m. I hope you will soften your heart Valerie .Love Maria C.

Maria Copelli   June 15th, 2010 11:47 pm ET

Dan @ 1;53 p.m. What a horrible heartless comment ,and I hope you will take some time to ,think about how hurtful that was .Peace ,Maria C.

@ALL, Wow today I read the articel by Mr. Charles Thomson ,and as I read this intelligent ,factual ,eye opening article ,I went back ,and pulled out some main thoughts ,and adjectives ,I would like to share them tonite .
'Bias distortion'....'misinformation beyond ....comprehension'
'Prosecution crumbling under .....cross examination'
'Lurid-inuendo' 'Pumpoed up Neilsen Numbers!' time for the all important sweeps ' (at Michaels EXPENSE!)
'Sicko '....'Jacko' The British Tabloid ...'The Sun' says ...'He's bad ,He;s Dangerous ...He's History'....'But the media didnt 'seem' to care'! Mr .Sneddon tampering with 'Fundamental elementsof his case'
'planted fingerprints '
'All while the media hungry ,for scandal and 'Sensationalism' pounded on them' I ask 'WHY?' ALL this injustice and character assasination?' Shameful Episodes Indeed '!
And Look what have we learned ?After some of the comments here today ,I feel history has repeated itself ,and the blogs ,became the same way ...'Shameful'.......What have we learned ,what will it take for us to believe Michaels innocence ,to stop being hateful toward the Jackson Family? Some ask when Joe will die ? Tell me what we arlearning ? When will we stop the Hate? Where does Hatred get us ,where has it gotten us? NOWHERE!!!!!!
If I were to hate one thing tonite ,it would be the ways ,I have seen Michael treated ! How does it feel to be lied about day after day ,yr after yr week after week? It is unimaginable to me! Hurtful ,and to come here and see the 'stones cast' all over again? Why?
The man in the mirror is you me and all of us.lets look in there and try hard to 'Make tht change'.Standup for Michael show him what you are learning from his message of L.O.V.E.
Please ....Love to you ALL ...Maria C. Sorry for so many typos....

"Pixie Dust "   June 15th, 2010 11:51 pm ET

Marguerite-that is the word everyday.Time to let the anger go and celebrate the message.

"Pixie Dust "   June 16th, 2010 12:07 am ET

Maria C,yes beyond shameful it is.All this bashing and critisizing Michael has to stop.Some posts I actually have a hard time reading.Michael is a good man and sure don't deserve this.So I guess we have to get a little stronger now and hold hands even tighter and form that circle of love for Michael.Positivity will bring greater strengths.Always positive we shall be.Sending warm hugs and(Smiles) from the heart.

Pixie Dust- I am fantastic. LMAO How are you? Thank you. I enjoy your posts as well. Smiles to you.

doubtingthomas2010   June 16th, 2010 1:01 am ET

Pixie- you're right about that.

Celebrate the message, stay strong and positive.

elly   June 16th, 2010 1:13 am ET

looks like joe has finaly sobered up and came to his senses. he has changed his statement about blaming katherin. it's too late to say who did not do enough. I feel sorry for joe. all he can do is regret and that should be hard.

@ Carie

sorry, I don't come here often. I will try to come more . lately it takes forever to post something

doubtingthomas2010   June 16th, 2010 1:15 am ET

letta(IbeLIEve)   June 16th, 2010 3:21 am ET

With such harse word coming accrose the blog here is food for thoughts.

I am always content with what happens:
For I know that God chooses
is bettet than what I choose: Epicdelus

Faith is the conviction that God knows
more than we do about this life
and He will get us through it. Max Lucado

Happiness held is the seed;
Happiness sharede is the flower.

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease on life the aching or cool one pain, or help
one lonely person into happiness again. I Shall not live
in vain. (E.L)

babycarie   June 16th, 2010 8:01 am ET

Michael died almost one year ago and that is the truth.

Katherine's heart is clearly broken...but looking at her face in that photo brings truth so I am sure those who choose not to see the truth do not really see her pain, her overwhelming agony at losing her beautiful child.

Randy is struggling with the death of his brother Michael...and now he is in physical distress. Randy is one who really seemed close to his brother up to the end.

Michael's death is real, his family's pain and distress is real...and that is the truth.

Murray did kill this patient, a patient that trusted his doctor, paid his doctor very well, to keep him safe. Murray's arrogance and intense greed killed Michael. Randy believes 'others' are involved...only Murray can admit and reveal that truth...and I do not see that ever happening.

Respect Michael's death. He deserves to rest in peace.

To those who would like to help make that change, there is much need of manpower in the gulf...I posted the contacts but is was taken down. Google and find the way...'make that change'!!

Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Maria Copelli   June 16th, 2010 9:18 am ET

Look at Katherine's face...that is the face of unbearable heartbreak and sadness and pain of losing her son! She is who we need to feel for...Michael, her son, died, and that pain on her face speaks volumes to the point of being deafening!!!

Maria Copelli   June 16th, 2010 2:22 pm ET

@ALL, I am thinking of the Jackson family to nite,and wanted to share this quote; 'Good Timber does not grow with ease. The stronger the wind, the stronger the trees. J. Willard Marriott
This quote reminds me of Michael; 'Let there be peace on Earth ,and let it begin with me. ' Seymour Miller and JillJackson
Good Timber,and Peace ...imagine.....Love Maria

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   June 17th, 2010 7:42 pm ET

The sickos are turning up I see. Hmmm!

I think we are being put to the test. These things are sent to try us.

Yes, stay strong everybody.




babycarie   June 17th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

Suzie Q!!!
Randy clearly knows Michael died June 25, 2009...he says so in this CNN interview.
Katherine clearly knows her son died June 25, 2009 as she called Murray a 'monster' for killing Michael...and just look at her facial expression in that photo...gut wrenching.
Joe clearly knows MIchael died as he is trying to sue anyone and everyone over his son's death.
Paris clearly knows her daddy died as she broke down during the Staples Center memorial.
Janet clearly knows Michael died as she stated thus on her ABC interview.
The DA, LAPD, FBI, Coroner etc. clearly know MIchael died as they are involved in his murder investigation.
All the above spoke their own words and not tabloid junk! And their words are that Michael died June 25, 2009.

Millions are still waiting for Elvis...millions are still waiting for Tupac...millions are still waiting for Jim yeah it is delusional to believe any of them or Michael is alive.

Maria Copelli   June 17th, 2010 10:49 pm ET

Jessie ,So nice to have you here tonite ! It was certainly not the best day ,for some bloggers,but through it all ,I still see so much Love for Michael. I wonder how he would feel to read some of these comments,and I wonder if members of his family do visit here ? Whatever the case may be,I hope and pray they know and believe that we are behind them ,and care about the truth of these matters. This may be something we all need to consider when we comment here ..
It is always nice to see you here Jessie ,let's hold our torches high ! Love Maria C.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   June 17th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

@Jerguy June 14th, 2010 5:32 pm ET

Be careful, it could be Michael Jackson.

Anyway, TRUE-TO -YOU expresses themself so eloquently in their rhymes. Quite unique.

Because you can't match them, you have shoot down. 🙁

babycarie   June 17th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

Suzie Q!!!!
The family would appreciate TRUTH and that is what we bring!!!
Michael's family knows he died...they want us to be his voice,,,
So let's scream for Michael...and pray for justice!!!!!
RIP Sweet Michael.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   June 17th, 2010 11:08 pm ET

God be in mine eyes and in my looking;
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking;
God be in my heart and my thinking;
God be at mine end, and at my departing.

Good Day. Hope everyone day brings them many blessings.

babycarie   June 18th, 2010 8:14 am ET

Anyone who blogs on this blog and still believes in anything but the truth, that Michael died, has not really looked and studied Katherine's face in that photo...or you have no feelings whatsoever. That photo screams pain and grief and loss...and for those who do not see that, you are to be pitied.

Maria Copelli   June 18th, 2010 11:31 am ET

Jessie No way will we ever hide under Bushels ,sheets ,our swallow the stories that Sell. And yes my torch is gently lit,and here we go ....there is strength in numbers ....and Love Never fails.
This reminds me of Michael ..'When I grow up I want to be a little ...boy.' Joseph Heller Lets never stop eating lollipos and climbing ...or chewing gum ! Love to you my sister ....Maria C.

"Pixie Dust "   June 18th, 2010 12:53 pm ET

Maria C, I love your comment at 11:31 am, to Jessie.Yes strength in numbers, Lollipops,chewing gum and climbing trees.Never too old for that.As I always believed it is good to stay young at heart, and what better way than that, those who stay young at heart seem to enjoy life more.(Smiles) to you Maria.

allysparks21   June 18th, 2010 1:03 pm ET

dont listen to joe, katherine you did nothing wrong, he should be blaming himself cause he was the one to beat him, call him big nose, and many other things, if he didnt do that michael would still be alive.

Debbie Totten   June 18th, 2010 5:25 pm ET

This is youre fault joe youre kids never had a child hood remember you pushed them because you were greedy and still are and I hope you get nothing

Eldora B Lougheide   June 18th, 2010 7:40 pm ET

Its not surprising that Mr Jackson blames Katherine .This happens all the time with these kids of sudden deaths.Katherine herself said she should have done more to save Michael.
Michael was an artist a sensitive soul with what Eckhart Tolle calls a painbody." This pain spawened his songs the melody the "soulfulness of his works.
Everything was bigger in his childhood less world"
He loved Joe just remember that .
Joe Jackson is hurting too he just deals with it his way.If the world hurts so bad for Michael can you critics not imagine how this family must hurt ?The scrutiny of fame exacerbates their pain.
We all want Michael with us . But he is gone . This is it. Finality -Truth

Tami   June 30th, 2010 7:15 pm ET

I'm a little confused. On the NBC special with Katherine Jackson, she said she did not see Michael after he died, she was to remember him from the last time they saw each other. But it clearly says that she was standing over Michael body on the mortuary table.....

There are a lot of inconsistencies....

Did you see the pictures that appeared in the last People of Paris and Prince. It did not look like them at all.....What is going on?

dawnmarie   July 23rd, 2010 12:17 pm ET

Keep the faith and be strong Mrs Jackson GOD is with you, pray for Mr Joseph Jackson he needs GOD's help he has an ugly spirit. I will keep on praying for Justice for Michael I LOVE HIM VERY MUCH.

tityana mcclure   September 29th, 2010 10:39 pm ET

i under stand your pan Mrs. jackson i was a bigg fan i love u and him. May GOD be with and your family.
