This morning on the Today Show, Joe Jackson gave an interview regarding son Michael’s death and the whole “foul play” angle. He says he had no idea that Michael’s death was by anything other than natural causes…until the recent announcement that his death was a homicide.
“I didn’t know all this was going on,” Joe says about MJ’s use of drugs. “I’m not angry, I’m mad – because I didn’t know.” Jackson, 80, says that his family “wants justice to be done.” When he was asked whether or not he wanted criminal charges to be filed, he said, “I don’t know.”
Don’t know? Hell, I’d prosecute as far as the law would allow if it was MY kid.
As far as MJ’s kids go? Joe was asked if he spent time with his grandchildren, Prince, Paris, and Blanket. “Of course,” he says. “I’m their grandfather.” How often does he see them? “I see them enough.”
Here’s some video of the interview.
