Shocker -- Katherine Shows Up in Court with Joe!

6/14/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He delivered one of the most heartless insults of 2010 -- yet Katherine Jackson maintained her united front showing up to court with Joe Jackson for the Conrad Murray hearing.

We don't know if they drove in the same car together, but Katherine walked into the courtroom with Joe and sat with La Toya and Jermaine. 

Katherine and Joe didn't really speak to each other in court, and Joe at one point put on his shades and seemed to doze off.

Pretty stunning -- they were sitting in court looking at the man who is charged with the death of Michael Jackson, after Joe said over the weekend ... his wife was partly to blame.

Why is this so shocking? Katherine has been forgiving Joe for 60 years. I don't expect her to stop now. She tried to divorce him twice in the 80s at the encouragement of Michael and La Toya. When he refused to leave Hayvenhurst, she simply gave up and withdrew the papers.



All this said, it really seems to me as though the media, and TMZ in particular has really blown Joe's comments all out of proportion. Lots of parents who lose children are angry and bitter and blame each other and say horrible things out of pain shortly after it happens. Joe should not have made these things public, but then again, that's Joe. At 80, he's not going to change his ways now. This is how he's always been. Katherine probably said to him this time what she's said to him many times over the years (and sometimes on televison) -- "shut up, Joe!"



It doesn't surprise me at all that they showed up at court together. They'll probably be doing a join television interview shortly.

Don't get me started....however, it amazes me to no end how Katherine is a Jehovah's Witness yet her actions of self indulgence & hypocrisy goes on without dis-fellowship. Michael had a JW funeral & why? Perhaps JWs like money most like other churches; they accept whom they want. I don't wish to be judgemental but this family & religion could easily stumble a non-believer. I loved Michael's work & it is sad that he has passed. IMO the doctor was following an addict's wishes & may have thought he could help Michael. As for the Jackson parents....um...I think they were horrible parents. They were in it for the money & Katherine was just as much to blame as old man "ugly". I mean ugly in the sense he acts ugly. Joe cracks me up when I see him with young girls (mostly Asian) on his arms. The family has told so many untruths in books (they contradict themselves) that believing them is impossible for me. May Michael RIP & I for one am bored with the rest. So for my last statement ever about this family & its ugly saga: I hope they get their act together!

No suprise - this poor excuse of a woman and mother who let this man physically and emotinally abuse their kids will be a slave to Joe Jackson till the day she dies. She's let that monster walk all over her and their children for decades, so I guess she may as well just keep letting him at 80 years old. That's not class, that's spineless and weak.

Why would Katherine Jackson ever walk into court with Joe Jackson after his ugly public statement that she helped kill MJ? Why would she stay married when Joe Jackson was sexually, emotionally, and physicallly abusing all his kids? She has to be a nut! When a family member dies to have another family member say you were the cause of their death could make someone have a heart attack but not Ms. Jackson, she just continues to stay with that violent man. Why did MJ even love his spineless mother? I don't think I could. How disappointing to think Mrs. Jackson may yet again let Joe Jackson abuse MJ's kids.......

@sam, please spare on the BS! even ANIMALS protect their children, if it means against the father. So I don't care what "period" you are from, a mother's job is to protect her children. Michael himself said he used to ask her to divorce. Joe is evil and Katherine is also guilty for allowing Joe to beat the children! This "man' cheated on her, have a b(astard) child, he lives in LV with his other family AND is dating a ho' and Katherine is still following him like a puppy! HAVE SOME DIGNITY, KATHERINE! Jackson siblings are equally at fault for NOT protecting their mom from this evil incarnate! JOE F U! I WISH YOU DIE SOON!

I think this shows just how much Katherine loves Michael. She put aside her animosity towards Joe and was there for Michael - no matter what. Joe's comments just added to Katherine's heartache and unimagineable pain at losing Michael. Joe needs to keep his mouth shut and not blame others for his own failings. I hope Katherine seriously considers kicking Joe to the curb financially and finally rids herself of that parasite. Blaming Katherine for Michael's death is just another form of abuse -something he's delighted in for years.

Hmmmm.... the news media (CNN/Fox News) doesn't seem to be covering this story of Murray having a court date at all. Where are the pictures of the MJ Fans Protesting at the court house......? Has the media lost interest in the Michael Jackson trial story....? It would seem so.

Why in the hell would anyone care what Joe Jackson has to say. Let alone interview him. He has proven himself a fool time and again. Why is this court case dragging out for so long? He is either guilty or not. There will be no peace, closure or whatever as long as this is being drug out. Get on with it.

Katherine! why you did not defended your children from the Joe´s wild hands?
you defended yourself when Joe wanted to hit you, but you did not defended your children.
You defended yourself when Joe was having an affair with his secretary Gina, but you
do not defended your children.
Michael (8 years old) defended you when Joe tried to attack you, Michael told
Joe he do not sing anymore if he beat you, but you never defend your children.
What kind of mother are you?

TMZ, why this story? Of course both of Michael´s parents show up - they always have. Both of them. No surprise. They didn´t talk, no surprise there either. A non-story to divert attention away from what matters: Justice for Michael!



Another thing. I am beginning to understand why the wheels of justice grind so slooooooowly.
To have this court meeting with judge, lawyers, clerks, police, the whole cirkus. And for what? A new court date!!!!
Ridiculous. How much does it cost, what is the purpose??? The judge himself claimed he had no juristiction.... What was he doing there then??
Oh, silly me, to set a new court date of course!!! Sheesh
