Katherine Jackson -- 'I Haven't Been Doing So Well'

7/28/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson claims she "hasn't been doing so well" since MJ died -- in fact, according to a never-before-seen interview from last month, the singer's mother has basically been an emotional wreck.

During the moving interview -- which took place before the anniversary of Michael's death -- a visibly upset Katherine claims, "Not a day goes by that I don't think about my son."

The clip was shot by the same website hawking Katherine's new book "Never Can Say Goodbye" -- and according to our source, the footage is all part of a larger documentary on Jackson's life.

As for who's behind the whole project -- we're told it's an equal partnership between Katherine and Howard Mann -- the same guy who co-wrote her book.

katherine is full of greed!!!! my goodness ....i don't care how much depth they have and blah blah...just think about how many time she has been on tv in the short span that michael has died! dancing with the stars...this inteview....let me tell you something katherine: if you really are sad about your son's death (whom i will love and respect till the day i die), you would not be all over tv to say so...usually when someone is REALY sad they keep it to themselves and family. SHAME on you. look at heath ledger's family and how they handled their son's death(pure class).botton line....you do not want to cash in on your son's death and when you do ,,then you're just another impostor in MJ'S life. it's pure shame that his kids are on her care too(if she even cares for them)..all she does is leave them with a bunch of teenagers (jermain's kids which makes it 100000% worst) and god only knows what those kids have seen or experienced. the videos that have been leacked are a GREAT EXAMPLE of katherine's inability to care for the kids in the way michael was. in 5 years these kids all gonna be some greedy drug addict abused kids and it's such a shame.

Bless katherine and the of the jacksons. I can't imagine the pain she feels losing a child. how can anyone look at her and think she's faking as if michael is alive somewhere...those beLIEvers are nuts! I hope the family finds peace but i know that can't happen until michael gets justice.

I expect trolls to post nonsense and i expect rude comments from haters who love to hate the jacksons but michael would hate to see his fans direspecting his family so much. Some of the comments are so unnecessary, have any of you ever lost a child doesn't matter the age michael was her baby and she can't fake this pain, the poor woman will always hurt. She wants to do something to honor her son and help benefit her family and that makes her greedy?

@tgrfan and other MJhaters. Katherine is DAMN RIGHT to sue everybody trying to extort her son even now that he's gone. She should sue all those TABLOIDS too. MJ in life hated to sue because he hated to WASTE his time in court, so he settled most of the time. What he didn't do in life, his mother is now doing FOR him. All these people calling her a MONEYGRUBBER I don't hear them say anything about PRISCILLA PRESLEY. She was just a TWO BIT ACTRESS and is still exploiting ELVIS to this day, not only for her daughter like she said, but also to her own advantage. MJ left his mother a great part of his inheritance and rightfully so. Anything Katherine does she is doing for MJ, to pay of all those claims from all those "socalled" called friends and associates who were stripping him off his money. Fortunately, now it turns out most of those claims are BOGUS.Katherine is 80 years old and need nothing for herself. So you MJ's mother alone all you JEALOUS losers. And YOU GO Katherine, SUE all these ***holes who are tarnishing your son's memory. HE WAS THE GREATEST!!!

You notice though, in the midst of her overwhelming grief, she manages to work in the name of her book right after the interviewer said it.

P.S. to "some" MJfans. How dare you call yourself FANS when you degrade his family and especially his BELOVED mother? MJ worshipped the ground she walked on. To him she was "like Mother Theresa". Besides, he made peace with his father a long time ago too. It seems you guys believe the TABLOIDS and their HEARSAY about this family too, just like the haters. What you are doing now is giving these people more ROPE to keep bashing and degrading MJ even in death. If you REALLY LOVE Michael you would stop dissing his next of kin, no matter what you think of them. That's what UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is about.

Is that a surprise? Any mother who loses her child would be an emotional wreck. Whether he was a superstar, or an accountant. I will pray that GOD takes this burden off of her heart, and that she will find peace, on this earth. Lord knows Michael didnt have any peace. Love you Mrs. J.
