Katherine Jackson: No Evidence Estate Killed MJ

7/25/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson tells TMZ she knows of NO evidence to support the conspiracy theory that people connected with the Michael Jackson Estate killed the singer.

A number of people, including LaToya Jackson, have suggested there was a conspiracy to kill Michael.

Katherine tells TMZ ... "It is only natural for people who loved Michael, including family members, to be suspicious about the circumstances surrounding Michael’s untimely death. So far I have not seen one shred of evidence that anyone associated with Michael’s estate conspired to kill him.

She continues, "If such evidence ever comes to my attention I will be the first to bring those facts to light.  No one loved Michael more than I loved him, but no one should be falsely accused, as Michael was, of a crime they did not commit."

Finally, spoken like a true sane person. The estate was right about Latoya that her comments are proof that she is willing to say anything in connection with her brother for money and attention.

Very surprised at Katherine saying this now... So why is Katherine defending these people now? Like Michael, she seems to hold an unwavering religious belief that human beings are inherently decent... So, I would say to Katherine that this is not the time for your acceptance or forgiveness - but for asking questions in the pursuit of justice, and for making allegations in the pursuit of truth.

Latoya Jackson said that in her book 'Starting Over' she was going to name the people that murdered her little brother Michael. When I read her book she only talked about how Jack Gordon physically abused her and made her betray Michael and that Michael was scared for his life and blah blah blah. Latoya Jackson don't know nothing about who murdered her brother Michael. And I hate it when she says Dr. Murray is just the fall guy. She wants Dr. Murray to go free? Is that what she wants? If she really knew who murdered her brother she would have told the police instead of going on TV and becoming a celebrity.

This old bat is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Has everyone fooled...even the know-it-all Harvey thinks she is an angel. Of course she is not going to say anything about the estate, they pay for her living.

A voice of reason in a sea of insanity. The family members would do well to listen to Mrs. Jackson.

Thank you Mrs. Jackson, and TMZ, for clarifying this for those who distrust John Branca and his team.

Basically, MJ's need for drugs, to get him through his life, is what killed him. His Propofol use was well do***ented. He used it for everything, procedures that a normal person (non addict) would get Novocaine for, he used Propofol. He had the money to pay for it, he got it. Everyone around him was enabling him to use drugs. But ultimately, MJ is the one who wanted them. Sorry fans, not a hater, just speaking the truth! MJ took all that stuff knowing there was a risk. He did it anyway. RIP.

We need Justice for Michael Jackson! Dr Murray is a fraud!

BTW: Does any other MJ fan feel a little worried when listening to "Thriller" He sounds so alive and strong back then. To think he's died feels a little strange after listening to Thriller =\

So mother Katherine is basically saying "My daughter LaToya is a nutbag - (just like her drug-addicted brother Michael was)."

LaToya said in an interview that her mother agreed with her on the conspiracy claim. Ooops .....

Katherine shouldn't have to be going through this in the first place. No parent should, regardless o****e or fame or whatever.

Why was my comment using the words "o****e" censored?

Michael was persecuted, harassed, humiliated, treated brutally and cruelly. Michael was treated inhumanly by the media. Media killed an innocent man. It was a crime and the media. Michael did not need medication if he could live peacefully.

Very surprised at Katherine saying this now.
Okay, I'm not a fan of Latoya in general - everyone knows she's a flake. And her attempt to blame Jack Gordon for her involvement in MJs downfall during the '93 allegation was pathetic. HOWEVER - she does make some very valid points regarding her observations re the estate, AEG and Sony. Sometimes, even a fantasist like like Latoya can stumble upon genuine evidence! In a billion dollar plus estate, everyone has to be vigilant.
So why is Katherine defending these people now? Like Michael, she seems to hold an unwavering religious belief that human beings are inherently decent.
So, I would say to Katherine that this is not the time for your acceptance or forgiveness - but for asking questions in the pursuit of justice, and for making allegations in the pursuit of truth. I'm not saying that the estate WERE involved with MJ's death, but nonetheless, there are some serious inconsistencies surrounding the drafting of the will, Michaels impairment when signing and the estates autonomy in financial and creative areas. These require answers.
So, I applaud Latoya for publicising her suspicions. Her criticisms may just be valid - even if she is a bit of a nutter.

I completely agree with you! Well said, thank you.

Certain Jackson family members are upset by the will;Michael chose not to provide for them so they are lashing out and trying any means they can to gain notoriety and money.Certain family members apparently have no idea of how ridiculous they look.
I am happy that Katherine has spoken out about this particular theory.
