Katherine Jackson Interview: MJ Death Was Avoidable

9/16/2010 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a clip of Katherine Jackson speaking about the very reason she filed a new lawsuit against AEG -- she believes Michael Jackson's death could have been prevented ... if not for negligence.

During a recent interview for an MJ documentary -- shot by the Michael Jackson Secret Vault -- Katherine was asked if MJ's death was avoidable and her answer clearly points the finger at Dr. Conrad Murray.

As we reported yesterday, Katherine filed a lawsuit for negligence against AEG -- the company that hired Dr. Murray as MJ's personal physician during the "This Is It" tour rehearsals.

The only person who could have avoided it was Michael Jackson. He made wrong decisions. Perhaps he would not have wanted to numb his total being if Joe Jackson had not beat him, and if Katherine Jackson would have stopped Joe.

I am so disappointed in Katherine. I see this as a way to get money directly from the death of MJ's death. If she is suing and wins, this money may not become part of MJ's estate but go directly to her. Katherine was complicit in the abuse Joe inflicted on MJ, by never do ANYTHING to stop or prevent it. The family was aware of MJ's abuse of drugs and she turned her head as long as the money was coming being deposited into her accounts. Go stick you head back in the sand you greedy old bag.

Michael Jackson was a drug addict. He was the one who insisted on having Dr Murray as his personal physican. This whole thing is really sad but Michael Jacson is the one to blame.

If we want to blame someone other than Michael for his death, lets look at an abusive father and enabling mother. That's where the problem started. In the end, tho, this all lies at Michael's feet. If he hadn't gotten the drugs he wanted from this dr, he'd have found one that would. He's gone, Katherine. Accept it. Devote yourself to raising his children who look so happy now.

Michael did whatever the heck he wanted to do. While Dr. Murray has to pay the price of choosing to sellout his ethics for money to work for MJ (was it worth it Murray???), Michael was a walking dead man (the ultimate drug addict with $$$)and THIS TIME he paid the ultimate price for what he wanted.

MJ's death could have been avoided if his family had given a cr*p about him and sent him to rehab for his addictions. Instead, they liked him drugged and stupid so they could continue to milk him for everything he was worth.

The blame is SQUARELY on his family.

That's right - blame everyone except the addict for overdosing.

Murray was motivated by greed and stupidity. Jackson wanted to get high and paid a heavy price.
