MJ's Mom -- My Son Was NO Child Molester!!!!!

5/4/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson is still ADAMANT her son never molested any children ... including MJ's 1993 accuser -- and insists MJ only paid the kid off because his lawyers gave him bad advice.

0910_media_removed_H#D2D7F0
Katherine appeared on "Today" this morning ... where Matt Lauer asked if there was anything she wanted to clear up about her son's life.

Katherine responded, "As far as Michael being a child molester ... that's the biggest lie ever been told."

MJ's mom said she read an article after MJ died -- in which the 1993 accuser allegedly admitted he made up the story against Michael.

When Lauer asked why MJ forked over a settlement with the boy ... Katherine said, "His lawyers told him he should just pay the money .. they thought that just paying the money and shut the people up would be the right thing to do."

Katherine said she asked MJ why he made the move -- and MJ told

her, "I didn't want to do it either mother, I wanted to fight it because I knew it wasn't the truth."

Thriller was good, but his best work was Off The Wall. Something went enormously skewed with this guy. Something that fame or fortune or living a life in the limelight since an early age with a stronghold father can't explain. He was most definitely mentally ill. It's a shame because he could not have gotten help for it and the drug addiction, because what a talent. It is totally, 100% unnatural for a grown man to have a fascination with children like he did. Grown men, regardless of their upbringing, should natural move on to adult love interests.

She'll never admit otherwise. To do so she'd have to face the fact that she is as responsible as her husband for having created the tortured, twisted soul that he was.

Of course he wasn't. Only a fool believes that. His relationship with children was unorthodox and unusual but NEVER illegal or criminal in any way. NEVER! The Chandlers got money by lying and that is why Evan Chandler committed suicide, he could no longer live with the guilt.

If my child was molested and I dont care who this person was. NO money would make me happy. I would rather see this person rot in prison and be torn into shreads.

There is not even one moment in my life that I even believed that Michael Jackson did what he was being accused of. Hey people say an innocent person would not settle. Well his insurance company set up the settlement. The funny thing is that there was never any evidence that proved Michael did it. I recommend reading the FBI.gov files. Also the 2nd time he was accused remember he was found not guilty in the court of law .

Its so sad that even with no proof of guilt people still believe that he was a molester. Dont look at one source for information ..do your research people he was innocent. Plus he gave his bed to the kids he slept on the floor he did not sleep with these children.

I still can not believe we are still talking about this crap!!

For ignorant urban legend beleivers: The FBI has released 333 pages compiled in an attempt to prove MJ was a child molestor for DA Sneddon in the 2005 trial. They traveled the world for 2 years; especially to countries where this sort of thing is tolerated. They found ZERO evidence. For those who beleive MJ to be a kid molestor still...."ZERO" means none. No evidence. Nothing at Neverland.No DNA. No witnesses. Nothing in the world. The initial accusations was from a disgruntled writer who wanted MJ to get him a movie deal. The 2005 case was brought on by Tommy Mottola of SONY Records (who used the same shrinks, lawyers ,etc as before)to ruin MJ because he had won a trial against Sony and was going to open his own RECORDING LABEL to go with his own Publishing company. That move would have destroyed SONY RECORDS....voila' kid case to the rescue.After acquittal to make it up to MJ SONY fired Motolla and merged publishing companies with MJ.Now known as Sony ATV. You show your stupidity by not knowing the facts.

Lets not forget the Martin Bashir interview where he admitted to sharing his bed with an underage kid who was not his child. Weren't they holding hands in that interview? Please. That's when it became obvious he was a drug addict as well.

How his mother thinks she can say for sure is ludicrous. She can't admit her husband is a monster either.

I don't know what he did with those boys, but he sure could have used some advice to avoid even the appearance of impropriety after the first accusation. The fact that he just couldn't stay away from male children just hitting puberty is a bit disturbing. I have wondered if he needed the propofol and other sedatives to sleep but also to keep him from acting on any sexual impulses he had. Just a thought. I don't get why someone would have to just completely knock themselves out to sleep. Wine works pretty well too.

I don't know if he was actually a child molester but there's something strange about a grown man sleeping with children that spend the night, in his bed. Period!
