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.

0722_katherine_jackson_EX_01
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."

mj idiot fanatics didn't search for the drug dealers and surgeons who started making him suffer and melted his face in 1991.

lol his lawyer mclain went to high school with jackson. why would he help to kill mj????

mj was the one in the 60 Minuted interview, who gave pedophiles some ideas about how "ok it was to sleep in beds of other children" because he was 'raised to share beds" and the bible 'told' him to have kids surrounding him.

it was revealed howard stern show that mj's fake wife lisa marie had sex with an adult at age 15.
she used cocaine too.
elvis was a pedophile but mj still called him "father in law".

Jordan has NEVER spoken about the incident publicly - he has remained silent for the past 15 years or so. He never, ever, ever recanted. And Katherine claimed in an interview that he did.... She needs to apologize for falsely stating that Jordan recanted.

Nobody gives a damn about Jordan Chandler.

23. So my firsthand impressions aren't to be trusted?

I don't have the time to spend typing out various Jackson stories from those times, but suffice to say that his ACTIONS were those of a person who puts himself first and acts thoughtlessly towards others primarily because thinking of others feelings simply doesn't occur to him to begin with. democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x3857309

It would help, perhaps, if Jackson's lawyers and friends appeared to have more control over their star. "Hasn't someone advised him that [appearing with young boys] doesn't look so great?" a reporter asked Fields last week. "I don't think you could suggest to Michael Jackson that he shouldn't be around children," answered Fields. "He loves children."

This sort of response amazes some Jackson watchers. "Michael is being misguided," says Jack Cordon, LaToya Jackson's husband. "If he doesn't wake up soon, he'll lose his career." Gordon says that LaToya spoke with her brother at the end of October and that Michael "was totally confused."

J. Randy Taraborrelli, author of Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness, is also astounded by the recent turn of events, particularly since he believes that Jackson is innocent of all abuse charges. But he is convinced that Michael Jackson is out of the reach of his advisers. "Three months ago, Michael needed to make a strong statement that he would fight back against the allegations," says Taraborrelli. "I think his handlers probably wanted him to do that. But Michael," he adds, "does what he wants to do." people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20106832,00.html Here's what the jury in the Michael Jackson child molestation won't see: whatever racy things (such as teen-themed porn sites) Jackson may have downloaded onto his computer. The trial judge has ruled such evidence non-admissable because when the material was downloaded has not been determined or whether Jackson was the one who downloaded it. Here's what the jury did see: a parade of images from adult magazines found at Neverland, including not just Playboy, but also Barely Legal, Finally Legal, Just Legal, Over 50 and Plumpers & Big Women. "There were soft-core pictures and more explicit images -- about 75 items in all, displayed by prosecutors on an overhead projector in Santa Barbara County Superior Court. And if jurors were startled at first, they seemed a little numb after a while. One idly examined her fingernails," reports the Washington Post. "But the entire room seemed to sit up straight when a detective disclosed what else they had found in Jackson's private chambers: In the bathroom, a portrait of former child star and Jackson pal Macaulay Culkin. And in a locked closet just off the bathroom, this puzzling tableau, captured in a police photo: A bottle of Jack Daniel's whiskey, a bottle of red wine and a doll of Culkin's 'Home Alone' character, still in its box." Added the paper, "What any of that meant remained unclear." (Washington Post, Reuters)salon.com/entertainment/col/fix/2005/03/24/thurs/index.html

Who cares LMP had sex when she was 15? That's her business. Michael did not hook up with her when she was 15 so what is the point?

Et tu, Brute?
Okay so Katherine makes a good point. She doesn't KNOW that the Estate has any involvement, but the question is, WHAT HAS SHE DONE TO FIND OUT??
Let me say this, I'm not exactly a supporter of "LATOYA-ISMS", such as they are, nor do I consider the Estate to be on my list of SUSPECTS in Michael's murder. I originally questioned their involvement--and STILL think Branca and Co. KNOWS more than they're telling. HOWEVER, I do NOT put them in the same company as Murray, Barrack, Tohme, and Phillips/AEG. There is clear cut EVIDENCE to implicate these people, while in Branca's case, there's only the validity of the will.....which is written pretty much the same as Michael's '97 one with the exception of adding Paris and Blanket....
My point is, if Katherine doesn't KNOW something is true or not, she shouldn't knock it. While I appreciate her attempt at generosity towards the Estate (it's about TIME,) I still think if there's ANY question as to ANYONE who may have caused the death of her son, she should just let it play out. No need to comment. The Truth has a habit of rearing it's head regardless of the consequences. Further, I would think that she and the rest of the clan would learn how to get on the same page about SOMETHING, and provide a United front....especially when it comes to Michael.....Oye.
My first thought about this when I read it was that she was disclaiming LaToya's comments simply because they don't mirror what she and Joe espouse to support their WRONGFUL DEATH SUIT: The theory that AEG and Murray are the responsible parties in that they pushed Michael to do the concerts and gave into his "demand" for Meds, thus implying that Michael was some needy, demanding drug addict.....
They bring new meaning to the Family that PREYS together.....
-Hey Brigha! Great points--all. And I get what you mean by the Executors and the validity of the will, but the fact remains that noone has been able to PROVE that it's invalid, just that there may be discrepancies with the date it was signed and such.....
And though I also still have my reservations about Branca and Co., time has painted them in a MUCH better light--in fact, they've emerged as the HEROES of this whole debacle in that they're the only ones who seem to be REALLY looking out for Michael's LEGACY, thereby protecting PPB's future interests. I WISH I could say the same for the family, but Joe and Katherine's CONSTANT connections with creeps like Mann, Vaccaro, Dieter Wiesner and any other SNAKE who slithers down the pike, makes it apparent that the only interests they're looking out for are their OWN....
And as I've posted before, I have NO problem with the family getting benefits after the fact, my problem is that those benefits, if WARRANTED, should come without constant jockeying on their part. When there's a death in your IMMEDIATE family, the first thing you deal with after the initial grief and shock is the question of WHY it happened, and if there's even a question of FOUL PLAY, getting to the bottom of WHO'S RESPONSIBLE....period, point blank, END OF STORY....
-Superman, you have the GALL to quote scripture about something you know NOTHING of? Jesus did make that statement about how hard it is for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but that doesn't mean he considered the rich hopeless....
Typical mentality of the JEALOUS poor....
Next time you read your Bible...sometime NEXT YEAR or so, you may want to read about what Jesus had to say about 2 other wealthy men--Joseph of Arimathea and Jairus, the man who's daughter was brought back from the dead....Oye.
-Susan62509, EXCELLENT Post! That's EXACTLY my problem with LaToya's statements--because she's all over the place, she lacks CREDIBILITY. Even those of us who KNOW something crooked happened in Michael's death, find it hard to follow her reasoning.....
As for the Will and MJFT, many fan/supporters and enemies of Michael are guilty of confusing the two much like the Jacksons do. The same way people confuse the Estate itself--which is symbolic of Michael's wishes being carried out, with Branca and McClain....
-dylandog, your name really speaks for itself, doesn't it? And no need to tell us you don't get it--that's a GIVEN, based on your post....
And I see we BARELY had to wait a day to ENDURE the IDIOTIC comparisons of Michael to Amy Winehouse. ANy IDIOT knows that Amy was a HABITUAL user with ACTUAL FOOTAGE of her abuse on YOUTUBE, while Michael's only DO***ENTED addiction was the one he himself confirmed in '93, and which he also went to rehab and got clean of that same year....
How many times do I have to say this for the READING and RESEARCH IMPAIRED? There is NO PROOF of Michael abusing meds of any kind other than in '93, and the CORONER stated he found NO EVIDENCE OF DRUG ABUSE IN MICHAEL'S SYSTEM, and the only meds in his body were the Benzos and Propofol that MURRAY admitted to giving him....
As for that name the MORONIC MEDIA called him, let me ask this: when your classmates in school called you a dork, dweeb, or lowlife in school, did that make it so?
Sticks and stones, right?
-Hey Nan! So great to be talking about the case again, right? Also, I LOVED your post on this, especially this part:
"i saw her the other day talking about medical info regarding mj that was not true.she had said the anesthesia drug stayed in mj ody because he had kidney/liver problems...according to his autopsy, he did not...from what i understand...it stayed in his body because his heart stopped pumping and it continued to enter his system.what ever her reasons for what she is saying, she should stop talking before the trial..
conrad murray is on trial.not the estate lawyers.let the jury hear the facts of the case..."
-Sloane, good points but one thing--I consider myself one of those people who believe there was a Conspiracy to destroy first, then MURDER Michael, but I do NOT buy into LaToya's statements, nor do I give her any credibility....
IF what she knows is in fact valid, there was a way of handling that information which is totally the OPPOSITE of how she handled it and herself. The way she went about it just SCREAMS opportunistic, instead of communicating a demand for Justice in her brother's death....
It's a shame, because at one point I thought maybe LaToya COULD be the one person in their family to expose the TRUTH, but after several rounds of Talk Shows, a book and eventually a new CD, we can see it for what it REALLY is: yet another ride on the MICHAEL train.....
-Hey Siggisis! I totally agree. Murray's case is just around the corner, and instead of LaToya waiting to allow the case to play out, she's making statements that Murray was a "FALL GUY"? People constantly make that statement, but even if it was true, they need to realize that being a Fall Guy doesn't mean you weren't responsible, it only means you weren't the MASTERMIND/FINANCIER of the Crime.....
In the story of Julius Caesar, BRUTUS was also considered the Fall Guy, even though he took part in MURDERING Caesar.....
...............SIMMERING..............

julius caesar didn't want numb wounds with blood oozing out of his back.
mj pleaded for criminals to give him drugs, shared his home with liars, begged to hug murderers in a juvenile detention center, married a pedophile's untrustworthy daughter, and lied just like his family does.

Michael’s death and life are surrounded by so much controversy even two years later. Our celebrity-worship goes too far in creating our own ideas of icons such as MJ, as to leave a warped dynasty of myth and legend. Who was The King of Pop beneath the different faces? Check out my surreal portrait in commemoration of his passing and tell me about what you remember about him at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/in-memoriam-king-of-pop.html

I think she finally knows that blaming any and everyone who might have had a grudge against Michael is stupid, and will lead to the real perp Conrad being set free. I pray to God this quack is not allowed to be set free to prey upon the American public.

________________________________________________________________
Perhaps it's the only way she can get the info out there. Just like what's happening with the "Okay", Trial. Michael's murder has been reduced to a gossip site. No MSM is covering the death of Michael. No ongoing, in depth, unbiased investigative work by anyone of the MSM.
The greatest entertainer in the history of the world with billions of fans watching.......yet no major network wants the ratings.......not even for sales and ratings????? Nobody????
I know, I know they are waiting for BOUNCE TV to hit the airwaves a week after the trial starts...suuuuurrrre that's it.

For goodness sakes, drop the hip hop sounds and old school cliche's off the news and commentary... it's unnecessary... and insulting.

The suspicion is obviousHow come you don't see it. There is no murder only if Michael is alive. Accidental death is a bull ****!

To Michael'*****ers, get a **** out of his page and kiss his ass.

Love you Michael!

She needs to apologize for saying that one of Michael's victims recanted. She said during an interview that one victim recanted and that NEVER happened. EVER. Jordan has NEVER spoken about the incident publicly - he has remained silent for the past 15 years or so. He never, ever, ever recanted. And Katherine claimed in an interview that he did.... She needs to apologize for falsely stating that Jordan recanted."

And what makes you think this wasn't said to her (and Michael) privately (with stipulations)? You ever think of that? We all know if either "victim" publically recanted Jackson fans would find them and harm them (unfortunately) for lying and putting Michael and his family through all that stress. It would also include the DA (not Sneddon) going after them.
