Joe Jackson seems to be the one thing everyone can agree on: He needs to go slither back under his rock.

I agree with you #4. But there is one thing in this interview that I TOTALLY AGREE WITH AND ITS THAT KATHERINE SHOULD RAISE MICHAELS CHILDREN BECAUSE SHE WILL KEEP THEM TOGETHER AND RAISE THEM TO BE STRONG JACKSONS.

And how are they NOT MJs kids.. they look SOOOOOOOO much like him. Those two boys... they favor Michael ALOT.. TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

How come no one is questioning Joe Jackson's role in Michael's self destructive behaviior? He was left out of Michael's will, which speaks volumnes on how the son feels towards his father. Joseph Jackson shouldn't be allowed in the same room as Michael's children. Prince, Paris and Blanket are just more dollar signs in this man's eyes, not as his grandchildren. He has taken away the childhoods of one generation of Jackson. He has no right to destroy anther generation.

IF ALL THE STORIES ABOUT JOE JACKSON ARE TRUE, THEN, AT LEAST TO ME , HE GAVE UP ALL RIGHTS TO ANYTHING CONCERNING MICHAEL, ESPECIALLY MONEY, MONEY, MONEY WHICH SEEMS TO BE HIS GREEDY GOAL. THIS REPULSIVE INDIVIDUAL HAS NO DIGNITY, NO INTEGRITY, NO PRIDE AND NO SHAME, SHAME,SHAME. MOST OF US EXERCISE A GOOD AMOUNT OF DECENCY BUT MR J J DOES NOT SEEM TO ACQUAINTED WITH THE WORD OR ITS MEANING. THE FACT THAT HE NOW SPEAKS FAVORABLY ABOUT MICHAEL, CONSIDERING THE HORRIBLE BEATINGS AND NAME CALLING, ONLY PROVES THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE MUST NEVER BE PERMITTED TO SHOW UP WITHIN A MILE OF MICHAEL'S BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN. MICHAEL EXCLUDED HIS FATHER FROM HIS "WILL" WHICH SPEAKS VOLUMES. IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR THE FAMILY TO HONOR MICHAEL'S WISHES BUT, THAT IS WHAT MICHAEL WANTED AND, THAT IS WHAT MICHAEL SHOULD HAVE, PERMANENTLY!!!

Is this newsworthy?    

It is truly sad as some others have mentioned, MJ had so much yet so little. Which goes to show money cannot buy you everything. The kids do seem very close to their aunt Janet and their grandmother, I hope that they will live happy lives and not be bombarded by the bottom feeders. It is vulgar and disgusting how the media behaves. It's unfortunate MJ passed but if that means that he no longer has to endure the tremendous pain he had to endure than he is in a much better place. These vultures will never go away until the last scraps are gone and they will still be searching for more as long as a buck can be made. But this is how America was formed and no surprise that's how it will continue. People here look to amass so much money which they will never be able to spend nor enjoy with a good conscious. But then again money centered people tend to not have a conscious they are hollow soulless creatures chasing after their own addictions. So don't be a hypocrite and chastise MJ when you are no better but MUCH worse.

Go away, Old Man!! Stop talking, Old Man!! And take Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton with you.

You didn't even have enough respect to remove your hat at your son's memorial service.

THIS IS GUY IS SO TRANSPARENT, HE IS JUST MAKING AN A$$ OUT OF HIMSELF. HE HAS NO CONSCIOUS AND ONLY CARES ABOUT MAKING MONEY, KEEP THAT MAN AWAY FROM ANYTHING RELATIVE TO MICHAEL JACKSON'S ESTATE AND CHILDREN. THOSE KIDS ARE PROBABLY SCARED OF THAT GUY, BECAUSE I AM SURE MICHAEL LET HIM KNOW JUST WHAT A PIECE OF TRASH HE WAS AND BESIDES CHILDREN ARE VERY PERCEPTIVE. HE LOOKS DEMONIC, HIS GREED IS POURING OUT OF HIM, HE COULDN'T LOOK GENUINELY CARING IF HE TRIED.

ALSO, SINCE WHEN ARE HIS EYES BLUE! THEY LOOK LIGHT BROWN AT BEST! WTF!

KATHERINE JACKSON SEEMS LIKE THE ONLY ONE WITH GOOD SENSE IN THAT FAMILY!

DEBBIE ROWE DOESN'T WANT THE KIDS AND NEVER DID, SO HOPEFULLY SHE WILL STAY ON HER RANCH AND LET THOSE KIDS BE!

The will was written in 2002, seven years ago! so many things have happened since then, he was not that close to his mom or rest of his family. Even Diana Ross is shocked! MJ should have updated that will. Thats why I think debbie Rowe should take over cause even if she takes the money Im sure she will give them the right education and not exploit them the way Joe would. They deserve the ebst education and then they can choose whatever they want to do. i hope the judge does the right thing.

This "man " is a sleeze. Whether hes beating the crap out of his own sons to increase his meal tickets worth, or hawking his own record label on the red carpet 3 DAYS AFTER HIS SON DIED, he reeks of sleezieness. Now he wants to get a hold of those children because he again sees dollar signs,never mind how he treated their adopted father when he was their age. I hope to hell, for the childrens sake, he DIES soon. Karma will hit him square in his arrogant,abusive, untalented,ugly, hanger on,exploitive face. He has it coming BIG,BIG time.

Joe Jackson and the rest of the family need to start explaining why they allowed those kids to live in a house filled with all those dangerous drugs. They could have easily pop these pills in thier mouths. What about the safety of the children??? They are not fit to get these children. Where the hell was child services? The whole system ( cops, DA, doctors, child services, and family) needs to be investigated.

I FEEL WE ALL NEED IGNORE THIS MAN. ANY TIME YOU SEE JOE JACKSON ON TV, TURN THE CHANNEL, DON'T GIVE THEM ANY RATINGS. ON A POSITIVE NOTE I FEEL ON AUGUST 29th FOR THE WHOLE DAY WE SHOULD HONOR MICHAEL AND LISTEN TO HIS MUSIC LOUD AND FOR THE ENTIRE DAY AND EVERYONE EAT AT KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN, AUGUST 29th IS MICHAEL JACKSON DAY, PULL OUT ALL MICHAEL JACKSON T-SHIRTS, MUSIC, AND EAT KENTUCKY. THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO. IF IT AIN'T KATHERINE, JANET, REBBIE, OR THE BROTHERS, DON'T LISTEN. MICHAEL IS IN HEAVEN WITH BRANDON, RYAN, AND JOHN LENNON BEING HAPPY, NO MORE DANCING, HE DID ENOUGH OF THAT AND NO MORE NAME CALLING. ANYTHING NEGATIVE BEING SAID AROUND ME ABOUT MICHAEL, I JUST START SINGING MAN IN THE MIRROR...ENOUGH SAID....RIP MICHAEL, I SO MISS YOU.

So to all those who automatically thought Katherine was the perfect place, well there you go. she hasn't divrorced him in 60 years. She put up with his abusing their kids. Did you also hear that the Jackson Family has asked LAPD to investigate the NANNY, Grace, for giving Michael drugs and stealing from him? Apparently, Michael fired her about three or four months ago. So she is out. Diana Ross isn't interested. Ok, Debbie Rowe isn't a saint but at least she is proposing to put the kids into showbiz in less than a year. Hey, are any of you California Foster Parents, you too could be rich after this cutosday fight. It would be interesting to get Anderson Cooper's mom, Gloria Vanderbilt's, take since she was involved in the longest, most expensive custody battle in the 20th Century....Liza Minnelli was right!!!! This is going to be crazy. By the way, I think all the kids look like maybe a Brando?

Joe Jackson allegedly beat kids.
Michael Jackson allegedly beat kids off.

Neither accusation has been proven in a court of law.
