Joe Jackson Blames Wife Katherine For Michael’s Death

Michael Jackson’s father Joe tells News of the World that the King of Pop’s mother was to blame for his death by being unable to convince Michael to seek help for his prescription drug addiction. “Katherine was weeping uncontrollably and highly upset. But I didn’t give her a hug because I was MAD at her crying,” 80-year-old Joe said of their confrontation hours after MJ’s death. “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. I couldn’t bottle up my feelings. Katherine didn’t say a word – I had to get away from her. If she’d done what I asked, Michael would be here today. I am incensed with her. She could have made a difference.”

    To Mr. Jackson,
    If you EVER read this comment, just know that it is not right to blame her. There are things that you just do not know about Michael. Believe me, I know. He has never wanted any of this drama to take place as it has. I wish people would just remember all of his good qualities and his desire to make people happy. He REALLY wants that sir, but as YOU know, people won’t do that. So sad for Michael, but you know what Sir–God is Good. Please don’t allow the media and tabloids ruin your character. Love your family, and please stop the blaming.—Ruby
