Joe told NOTW that he asked his wife to intervene with their son as he looked “funny and frail.” Joe says after Michael died he told Katherine: “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. 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.”
He says Katherine didn’t want to invade MJ’s privacy. “Mothers are always the [person] their sons look up to. I wanted her to step in and look at Mike a bit, keep him cheered up. She didn’t want to do that because she was afraid that she was invading his privacy.”
I think he is cruel to be blame Katherine for her son’s death.
Katherine’s lawyers are coming to her defense. they told TMZ: “The world knows that Mrs. Jackson has always been a loving mother and grandmother, and that she and Michael had a very special relationship,” her lawyer, Adam Streisand, said, “The world also knows who Joe Jackson is and he seems bent on never letting us forget.”
Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for the Michael’s estate, also defended Katherine. “The inference by Joe Jackson that Mrs. Jackson was in any way responsible for Michael’s death is preposterous. Katherine Jackson was a supportive and loving mother throughout Michael’s life. His love and respect for her is reflected in his estate plan.”
