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.

He Needed Help    

Hey, where is your story about Evan Chandler first accusers dad who committed suicide? Tell us about that. Family members said he had been depressed for years. See thought he was going to enjoy the good life and lived miserable. Poor Michael suffered so badly because of these leeches. With all he endured in life I'm surprised he made it to 50. The truth is coming out!!!! All he tried to do was help people and put a smile on our faces and of course someone always has to tear a hero down. People call him names but he had lupus, vitiligo and a burned scalp and still became the best. That is why he was so attacked because he was one of God's greatest gifts to the world. What parent in their right mind settles for money instead of locking up the accused! Proof right there the man ( CHANDLER) was a wacko who kills themselves but the weak and sick minded!!!!RIP MICHAEL the truth will prevail!

Still can't believe he's gone. Eventually a credible interview from a credible family member.

I agree with you 100%. I am disappointed in JJ interview the day before her album and the fans reaction to the unverified suicide of Chandler.

Sorry people. But I call BS on it all.
Way too many inconsistencies and pieces of this puzzle are missing.

Well, TMZ, the reason why the family interventions were not successful because God and Jesus were not involved with those interventions. Did they include God and ask God to divinely intervene in Michael's life and to break the chains of bondage that he was in? I know I did when I prayed for Michael Joe Jackson and for God to perform a divine intervention. I asked God and Jesus to do a divine intervention in his life if all else failed. So, there you go TMZ.

I'm glad the family did try to help. If you have ever watched the show 'Intervention' it is not easy helping people overcome addictions. Michael was the only one who could have gotten himself better. RIP MJ.

Lets get this straight.....Janet and family knew Micheal had a serious drug problem and that he was an addict. They staged interventions (and failed) to try to stop his drug addiction. Micheal dies of a drug overdose..............and IT'S THE DOCTORS FAULT?!?!?!?!?!?! This intervies says it all, even if you moronic fans can't see it. He killed himself. The dr. is just about as guilty of murder as Mcdonalds is guilty of heart disease!

OOWEEE    

THE JACKSON FAMILY IS A LIE WHEN THEY SAY THAT THEY TRIED TO GET MR. JACKSON IN REHAB. The enabling Jacksons will never profit from mr. Jacksons Death. And they will remain untalented, money humgering hollywood lazy thugs. And Janet.....you have not even been seen with Mr. Jacksons Children since his Memorial.......Jermaine Dupree should have walked out on you .....TRICK.....NO THAT ENGABLING TRICK....Janet Jackson should be a person of interest with the Police because she was the first person to contaminate the crime scene when Janet Jackson was shown on TV pulling up with two Big U Haul Trucks......So when you wonder why there are delays in the Murder Prosecution, think of how the Family f...up the Crime Scene. And remeber that Katherine Jackson hired a lawyer on the same day Micheal Jackson died, not to secure the crime scene of her dead son, but to contest a no contest will. F...THE JACKSONS.....BOOOOOOOOO JANET OFF EVERY STAGE.....PLEASE....

This story is front page news on British tabloids newspapers and sky news reported this story this morning.

It's all hush hush because it's MJ, possibly, the powers that be realise that Mr Chandler embellished the truth????
