Jermaine Jackson Tears Into the FBI

12/31/2009 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson is waging a one man campaign against acronyms -- because yesterday in Calabasas, he trash talked TMZ and the FBI!

Jermaine Jackson: Click to watch
Despite the fact that his name is on a court document which listed people who could potentially file a creditor's claim against the MJ estate, Jermaine called the story "s**t" and ripped us for not knowing the "facts." Fact is -- his name is on the list -- clear as day.

As for the FBI, Jermaine shredded them for waiting so long to release the MJ files saying, "Why didn't they release these files -- showing they had nothing on Michael -- while he was alive?"

TMZ and FBI are not acronyms. They are initials.

An acronym is a set of initials you can say as a word - like RADAR or LASER. You cannot say TMZ or FBI as a word.

I agree those files should had been released a long time ago..maybe back with the last trial when the FBI couldn't find anything. Then it would of showed the world just what kind of WITCH HUNT Sneddon was on! He would of looked even more ridiculous taking that case to trial even after the FBI said there was nothing to go on!

Jermaine is right! The FBI should have released those files years ago! TMZ has NOT always "reported" the facts when it has come to the Jacksons! There have been alot of good stories but tmz never posts them they only post the negitive sh*t and they even twist that to make is seem worse than it is!

While I am no big fan of Jermaine's, I do believe that he loved his brother. Despite it all, I believe everyone in the Jackson family truy loves one another and I don't believe any of them wanted to see Michael end up in a casket. I feel sorry for all of them, particularly Katherine and Michael's kids. But I think every last one of them are in a lot of emotional pain, caused by Michael's untimely death and the fact that in their own way, all family members tried to help him -- and failed. Michael is not totally free from responsibility concerning how his life went and how it ended. But family members are the ones who have to live with the fallout.

As for the FBI, as someone pointed out, the FBI does not release files on people who are still alive. While I think it's a tragedy how the press treated Michael as he was being accused and tried, I also have to acknowledge that Michael himself gave them plenty of fodder what with his public comments about it being ok to sleep with children. After the settlement in 1993, Michael should have stopped taking vacations with kids 1/4 his age and he certainly should not have made public comments like the ones he made on LWMJ. If he had refrained from both of those things, the FBI and Tom Sneddon would've had even LESS to go on, and probably would not have had enough to even bring a case in 2005.

THEY FBI DESTROYED A MANS SOUL!!!jermaine thankyou for saying what was needed to be said!!! micheal was never able to recover from the damage they did, and with the dr murray giving him the lethal dose of propofol, michael died of a broken heart that never healed. it is such a shame they could not clear his good name before when he would have been able to put it to rest and go on with his life.that is just inhumane in my book.damn them all!!! sue from tampa

Jermaine is absolutely right! The FBI should have released the truth that Michael Jackson was cleared on everything. Instead he was accused, ridiculed and a long standing character assasination against him continued for years..Very sad and Jermaine is correct..How horrible what happened. The FBI releasing these tapes after witnessing the world wide love, support and great sadness when he passed. Shame on the FBI, Tabloid/Media that lies to make money, Evan Chandler who comitted suicide, Tom Sneedon, Martin Bashir, Diane Dimond, the Arvizos and the whole bunch of them. Go Jermaine.!! Thank you Aphrodite Jones and Tom Mesereau. The Bible is very clear on what God says about lying much less using slander and accusation to make money like Tabloids. Some day we'll all give an account to the Lord.

I hate to say this, but Jermaine has a point. The names on the "potential creditors" list weren't put there by those people. They were put their by the lawyers in a preemptive way of listing any and all claims to the estate. Jermaine's pissed at the notion that the brothers are suing the estate. Since MJ HAD been using J5 and Jackson songs in his shows, I could see how a claim could occur. Stop stirring the pot, paps!

Finally something worth hearing, the FBI is full of S*** for releasing files now, it's to late and we don't need to see crap from them anyway, true M.J. fans knew he was innocent all along and why release it now that he's gone, why don't they do a BREAKING NEWS STORY AND HAVE THAT NO GOOD COP WHO WAS AFTER MICHAEL READ THE FBI FINDINGS, THEY DID THAT WHEN THEY WERE AFTER HIM, MR.STANKY SNEEDON, COME ON T.V. NOW AND READ HOW MICHAEL WAS INNOCENT... AND WHY ARE THE BROTHERS AND JANET FILING A CLAIM AGAINST MICHAEL WHEN HIS MONEY IS STILL TAKING CARE OF THEIR SORRY A**. I WISH MICHAEL WOULD HAVE JUST LEFT EVERYTHING PENNY TO HIS CHILDREN AND LEFT THEM IN THE CARE OF DIANA ROSS WHO ISN'T MONEY HUNGRY.

He's right. TMZ reports factual information about MJs life, but it is often out of context and usually takes on a negative slant. MJ was used to it though - he went through it his whole life so why would anyone think that the garbage would stop now? The FBI waited until he was dead to release files that could have saved him from a lot of accusations while he was alive. Not a fan of Jermaine, but I agree with him 100% on this...
