Janet Jackson -- Family Interventions Failed

11/18/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

According to Janet Jackson, her family had tried several times to stage interventions before Michael died of a drug overdose -- but, obviously, they "weren't very successful."

In an interview with Robin Roberts, Janet talked about their attempts to get Michael clean, and though she says he understood "that it was out of love," she added "people tend to be in denial."

As we previously reported, Janet holds Dr. Murray responsible for killing her brother.

Ahe may have been close to Michael once, but I don't think that's been the case in recent years. I read somewhere that she once admitted she hadn't spoken to him for 2 years. Also that when Michael was in need of money she wouldn't lend it to him until Katherine appealed to on his behalf and Janet made it clear that there would be no more forthcoming.
Unfortunately MJ was too generous for his own good, gave away 350 million to children charities and ended up broke. Shame some of the recipients of his good will haven't come forward to support him when he's needed it.

They were in it for the money    

Aw Geez! Evan Chandler probably couldn't take the pain from the cancer anymore, thats why he did what he did, that and maybe to make one last big splash in the headlines.
Janet didnt say too much, all of it seemed to blend into her music her life. I think these Jacksons have a disconnect. I have seen the interviews with Joe and Katherine from 2005. Joe is the business man, it was Joe who controlled them with violence, it was Joe who put food on the table for them, it was Joe who kept them away from street gangs. Katherine blames everything on the media, nobody else. They show no emotion or question themselves. One big disconnect. They show no emotion over his death because that now becomes Gods Will in their mind, they do not mourn. They are very disensitized. They will never wake up to the fact they were part of Michaels and their other childrens problems. I have no feeling for this family.

:>) MICHAEL YOUR STILL THE BEST :>)


LIKE I SAID BEFORE SHE DID THIS INTERVIEW TO PROMOTE HER NEW
ALBUM "NUMBER ONES" THE SAME NAME AS MICHAEL'S CD THATS BEEN
NONIMATED FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR ......JANET,THAT'S REALLY "TACKY"

I BET SHE WILL BE PROMOTING HER "N U M B E R O N E S"ON THE
AMA AWARDS...and JERMAINE WILL BE UP THERE EXCEPTING MICHAEL'S
AWARDS, THEY WILL EXPLOIT THE SITUATION IN EVERY WAY THEY CAN!!
MICHAEL HADN'T BEEN PREFORMING WITH HIS BROTHERS IN 30 YEARS
AND IF YOU SEEN, "THIS IS IT" THE JACKSON 5 SEGMENT WAS PREFORMED
BY HIS DANCERS..HE HAD ISSUES WITH JERMAINE ESPECIALLY BECAUSE
HE BANKRUPTED HAVENHURST...(THIS LAST TIME)

WHEN I SAID THAT JANET AND THE FAMILY ARE IN DENIAL "THEY ARE"

TOO MICHAEL, HIS ABUSE WAS "R E A L" THEY ALWAYS ACT AS IF IT
IT WASN'T THAT BAD ....MJ WAS THE CARETAKER OF THAT FAMILY SINCE
CHILDHOOD AND THEY ALL SEEM TO THINK "NO BIG DEAL" ..YOU DON'T
SEE JANET ANTEING UP, NOT EVEN FOR HER BROTHERS COFFIN

IF ANYONE DESERVES TO EXCEPT THESES AWARD IT'S HIS INNOCENT
CHILDREN , PRINCE,PARIS AND BLANKET ...BECAUSE THEY HAVE
"NO A G E N D A"


THIS FAMILY IS SHAMELESS TO INCLUDE JANET
NON OF THEM COMPARE TO MICHAEL
