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.

Katherine Jackson is a class act....Joe is the not just the biological father, his efforts gave them all the opportunity to achieve what they did, for good or bad. She clearly can't stand him but never talks about it or shows it. She must have as much regret for everything as she has pride. G-d bless her.

There is a fine line between "classy" and "not wanting to air the family's dirty laundry in public" to just plain being cowardly because it's the path of least resistance, if that is what's happening. I don't know of any Jehovah's Witnesses who are mothers and who would let their husbands abuse their children. My daughter is a Witness, and I know she'd call the police immediately if she thought her husband was mistreating her children. I think KJ is more a victim of the social mores of her time, and that her seemingly passtive attitude has little to do with her religion. She lived in a time where segregation was the norm, and perhaps police would have given her little assistance if she had called them. It's not like today, where old Joe would probably have been immediately arrested.

Ahhh, Katherine....faithful, loyal and peacemaker as always, and no backlash, even though she's entitled to say something.

Joe please do not insult the woman that was Michael's hero, do not upset in death as in life, if you beleive spirits continue. This is a tough situation for all and you my sir need to check your meds to be able to make such comments about Katherine in public...pleas joe think twice about painful comments.

UNBELIVABLE, JOE JACKSON IS THE BIGGEST *******, HE SHOULD KEEP HIS BIG MOUTH SHUT. HE WAS THE CAUSE OF ALL OF MICHAELS PROBLEMS. HE BEAT HIS CHILDREN VERBALLY ABUSED THEM AND KATHERINE AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE. KATHERINE NEEDS TO KEEP MICHAELS CHILDREN AWAY FROM THIS SICKO. HE IS THE BIGGEST PIECE OF CRAP AND NEEDS TO KEEP AWAY FROM THE WHOLE FAMILY. MOVE ON JOE JACKSON,YOU DON'T DESERVE NOT ONE PENNY FROM MICHAELS ESTATE, ITS FOR KATHERINE AND HIS CHILDREN. YOU ARE A MISERABLE OLD MAN, MOVE ON,GET A REAL JOB TO SUPPORT YOURSELF INSTEAD OF WANTING TO LIVE OFF OF YOUR SON!

Interestingly, caucasian, USA music icon and famous sausage-maker "Jimmy Dean" has died. There is no mention of his passing by TMZ. Yet, the deaths of Michael Jackson and of Gary Coleman are trotted out nearly every day.

Katherine and joe are fighting for jsutice for their son, family matters should be delt with a sa fmaily. joe shouldn't have spoke to the tabloids because it isn't anyone else business. They have been married for over 60 years so i doubt katherine will divorce him anytime soon.
