Katherine Jackson to Release MJ Book

6/19/2010 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, is preparing to release a coffee table book dedicated to her late son ... this according to a new report.

According to Showbiz411.com, the book will be released next week and is called "Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Archives." The book will reportedly consist of photos on one page and Katherine's thoughts and memories on another ... and will be sold through a website, www.jacksonsecretvault.com.

The site also says Katherine gave an interview with former MJ confidante Marc Schaffel in an effort to promote the book -- a curious decision because Schaffel was heavily involved in Michael's life at one point, but the two had a huge falling out which resulted in several lawsuits.

As we first reported, Katherine plans on taking Michael's kids -- Prince, Paris, and Blanket -- to Michael's hometown of Gary, IN on the anniversary of his death.

Michael looks horrible in that picture with his mother. His skin looks like it is sagging on his face.

60 bux for 150 pages. Please people, don't be stupid with your money. If you have 60 dollars to throw away on someone, go give it to a kid who needs shoes, or school supplies or something.

Don't worry, fans do charity too. I could only speak for myself. I would buy MJ books/music to add on to my colloection, plus I will also donate to charity. Don't under-estimate a lot of the fans, we love MJ plus we also care about the less fortunate. Its out of our hearts that we give to the poor & care for the less fortunate.

19. Another American freak. .who in he world would name a child 'blanket'? And as for skin colour. . is everyone but me blind? There's not one drop of black blood in those three kids, regardless of how light their father was or 'became'! DNA tests would set the record straight once and for all, but who cares?

I would take a guess and say you're probably a canadian a**hole by the way you spell "colour". Listen motherf*cker it doesn't matter if their not his by blood.. he's still their father. Leave the kids alone.

And the $64K question is: Did the estate approve it, or is it really just another one of Joe Jackson's moneymaking schemes?

I love you Michael Jackson
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

TMZ - your bias is disgusting! It never ceases to amaze me how you can find the most hideous picture possible of Michael Jackson when there are thousands of beautiful pictures you could use. You seem to relish degrading this man's legacy and egging on your pathetic racist supporters.

If the estate has nothing to do with the pubication of this book, then Joe Jackson is behind this. He will no doubt make money off this endeaver via Katherine. Even though Joe has and always has had a hold over Katherine, I have lost some respect for her. She is exploiting her son. RIP Michael. You deserve it.

If the estate has nothing to do with this publication of this book, then it just seems like a way for Joe to make a buck via Katherine. Even though Joe seems to have a hold over Katherine, I have still lost a lot respect for her. RIP Michael.

Marc Schaffel produced porn movies and that's why Michael wanted nothing do with him. That's what one of the lawsuits was about. You can watch some of the deposition on You Tube. He is also still friends with Debbie Rowe. Michael would be appalled. Even his mother is betraying him for money, although Joe is probably behind the whole deal.
