Joe Jackson Speaks On Michael Jackson’s Death: ‘I Blame My Wife For Michael’s Death’ | Video

‘If she’d done what I asked, he’d be here today’
These words were uttered by Joe Jackson to the British tabloid newspaper The News Of The World just 12 days before the first anniversary of the MJ’s death. Joe Jackson tells the newspaper how he BLAMED Michael’s mother Katherine Jackson for the pop icon’s death by prescription drugs.

“Katherine was weeping uncontrollably and highly upset. But I didn’t give her a hug because I was MAD at her crying,” snaps Joe, 80, who says he had spent months urging her to get the singer into rehab for his prescription drugs addiction.

“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.”
