Michael Jackson's father Joe Jackson is now blaming his wife (and Michael's mother) Katherine for their son's death last June 25. Mr. Jackson is claiming that his wife's inaction caused the King of Pop's premature expiration. In a video interview with England's News of the World paper, the 80-year-old patriarch says he begged his wife to get their son Michael into rehab for his alleged addiction to prescription pills. Katherine Jackson was named the legal guardian of Michael's three children by Michael himself.
Mr. Jackson says when they saw their son lying on a mortuary table, he blew up, saying, "If you had listened to me, Michael would be living now!" Jackson says that he "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."
Um, Joe, why didn't you try and do something to help your son? Why is your wife responsible and you aren't? Weren't you co-parenting with her? It's always easy to blame someone else, isn't it?
Are Joe Jackson's claims completely batshit crazy? Is Katherine exempt from blame?
