joe jackson fights for the truth about son’s death, last wishes and children’s future


Patriarch Joe Jackson says that the Jackson family is an emotional wreck and very upset with their beloved one’s lawyers.

“We’re holding a family meeting now,” Joe Jackson, 79, told People magazine yesterday. “We don’t like what’s going on.”

Apparently, the lawyers will not allow the  Jackson’s to view Michael’s will and fear that Debbie Rowe (the mother of Michael’s three children) will fight for custody of her kids.

The family has also expressed their hurt for media that speculate Michael died of a drug overdose.

“That’s what we’re trying to find out right now,” he said of the cause of death. “We’re trying to find out that information. When we find it out, we’ll know.”

Joe Jackson pleads to the fans not to rush to judgement about how his son passed away.

“There’s a lot to be told, though, I’ll tell you that right now,” Joe Jackson said. “The truth! The truth is still to be told.”

Father Jackson says that they family has been putting on a strong front for Michael’s kids Prince,12, Paris, 11, and Prince II “Blanket.” But the pain of losing their most dominant relative is starting to take its toll.

“The kids have fallen apart today,” the source told People. “They have taken it so, so hard. [Friday] everybody was being really strong for the kids, but today it just hit everybody.”

And the fact that the family is unsure of Michael’s last wishes and the details of the will adds to grief enormously.

“The family has no access to the will,” said a source, adding they have been barred from seeing it by Jackson’s lawyers.

“The family has no idea what to do. They don’t even know when to bury him. They don’t know what to do about anything. They aren’t getting any answers from Michael’s lawyers.”

Even mother Katherine Jackson has been prohibited from removing any of her youngest son’s belongings such as clothes and adornments for the burial.

“Michael’s people won’t give Mrs. Jackson anything,” the source said.

The last concern and fright  is wondering what Debbie Rowe has planned.

“They haven’t heard from Debbie Rowe and don’t know what’s going on in that respect, either,” the source said. “Joe and Katherine really want the children. They for sure want the children.”

    If the old Jackson even just a spark of decency in the body would have, he would wish his son for anonymity of his three children followed. But he has already shown with his children that he had hundreds of kilometers of the child at the ass passes. He has yet loud Testament did not have access to the children. Let us hope that this time there are lawyers (by Katherine Jackson and Diana Ross), which these plans are hamstrung from the outset. If these two individuals also allow, then I see black for the three Jackson children. Whole black!

    Yes, I don´t know what to say, because I am still so sad about Michaels death.
    But sometimes I believe that it would be good to have the children at Joe and Katherine
    Jackson, the grandparents. But on the other hand what´s about Debbie Rowe, the mother?
