Joe Jackson -- Back Away from the Oprah!

10/13/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey's personal space was violated during her visit to the Jackson house last week -- and TMZ has learned the culprit was none other than Papa Joe himself.

Sources close to the Big O tell TMZ Joe was all over the talk show queen when she came over to conduct a sit-down interview with the family at their Encino home.

We're told Joe was tailing Oprah all over the house -- almost like a second shadow -- so Oprah's assistant stepped in and asked the guy to back off. 

Joe obliged, we're told -- and kept a polite distance for the rest of the visit.

Personal space -- it's not a joke.

It's his house and if she needs space, she can get as much as she needs by getting the hell out.

Oprah give me a break this poor ol' man just wanted to see if she cut him some slack for his part of the interview. WOW.. who sold those pics? **** no damn respect for Michael not even in death, everyone's out to make that buck in that house.. I just wish KARMA would catch up with them for GOOD.

Oprah ought to have a special on Mental disorders on Fame whore parents and family members.. just looking at some pics at that house, everyone in his family was so envious of Michael's fame. So sad and tragic.

1- It is NOT Joe or KJ's home, the home is paid for compliments of MICHAEL JACKSON! Oprah has no business being in Michael's home, Jacksons invited her there!

2- Just because someone is in your home does NOT mean you can be all up on their face! PICTURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! Look! Jacksons are star-struck, honored to be in Oprah's presence! What a disgrace Joe and whole Jacksons are!

3- NO, I DON'T LIKE OPRAH AT ALL but this is NOT Oprah's fault, she didn't hold Jacksons at gunpoint! They invited her there! So quit blaming Oprah and assign the blame where it RIGHTFULLY belongs: on Jacksons, Katherine especially! She has been going to TABLOIDS to promote that God-Damn Book, she even exploited Michael's kids to TABLOIDS!

4- This story was provided by Oprah team for damage control and stultify Jacksons and it works! Jacksons look like JACKA(SSES)!

From now on, it is no longer Jackson when referring to anyone except Michael and his children. It is JACKA(SS) FAMILY!

Maybe none of this is true, just TMZ stirring the pot to get everybody all worked up. Just using the pictures to twist things around.

Now THAT is a show Jacksons should participate! Michael is a royalty compared to Oprah. Instead of acting with dignity and grace, whole family disgraced Michael's memory and name! I will be livid if I see a speck of Michael's children in this show! Judging by the pictures of KJ's "book" and the belts that the children signed, it is safe to surmise that there is no low too low for Jacksons to make a buck over his deasth! Michael must be spinning in his grave!

She isn't the queen of England people. This is just stupid, she was in his house. She is just a wealthy reporter. Why do you treat her like she is so high and mighty?

Forget personal space Joe! If Oprah ate lunch at your house keep your hands and feet away from the big O as she eats! Oprah can really put on the feedbag when she is hungry. And by the looks of her weight, that appears to be often.

I don't know... Oprah has the sista woman look on her face, as if to say.. "umm humm, whatever.. just stop touch'n me dude" Joe Jackson is mighty strange... that entire family, except Randy is off the hook. BTW, he doesn't even look like the others.. taking into consideration he has gone under the knife like the others.
