Jermaine Jackson says he celebrated Michael Jackson's birthday by spending time with his family and watching sentimental home videos ... but JJ explained it's also a day marked with great sadness.

Jermaine was out with his kids in Calabasas yesterday where he told us, "Today is a day to remember a wonderful human being ... but we're sobbing ... always."

Sadly, Jermaine told us the family "didn't really have birthday parties" for Michael over the years ... but says he will always cherish the memories of the two performing on stage together.

Michael would have been 54.

"Today is a day to remember a wonderful human being ... but we're sobbing ... always."

This is going to sound mean, but the family brought it on themselves by questioning Michael's wishes: Are they sobbing for Michael or for his money? Their actions are not showing concern for the loss of the man.

Most fans know that the Jackson family were brought up as Jehovah's Witnesses who do not celebrate holidays. Michael left the faith, but still practiced Christian tenets learned as a child. He was not always comfortable celebrating his birthday, but he loved putting on parties for his children's birthdays.

Jehovah witnesses do not celebrate birthdays........Christmas, Easter, nothing. So Michael never had a birthday party when he was a kid. This fool needs to get his own life,

Honestly, when will JJ stop to benefit from MJ's famous name? Noone's interested in him but he doesn't realize it, how sad is this?

I'm not sure which is creepier: his appearance or his voice. Both give me the willies.

On the other hand: MJ's siblings are old enough to know they have few options for supporting themselves and their families outside of MJ's vast estate. Either grab some of that or face being destitute.

Wow even in Death Jermaine still resents his brother. Look at his body language he hates like hell reporters of any kind only want to talk about Michael Jackson or his children. When his brother first died he was racing to be in front of anybody with a camera,but now he seems to just want to run away. Jermaine might be married,but he's obviously GAY what's up with all the girly mannerisms?? Hands all on the hip & breastisess(How you doin!!)

Well, if he's gay he's done a pretty bad job hiding it! Jermaine has 9 kids and has been married more than twice! I would say it's all the way around: he can't keep it into his pants.

Why do you give him camera time TMZ? JJ has proven, over and over again, that he wants what his siblings have. Wives, money, children. Doesn't matter to him. He'll whore himself out for whatever lame fame, fortune and attention he can get.

Daybreaker    

METRO VANCOUVER — Former Global BC television reporter Ron Bencze was sentenced in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday to four years in jail for sexually assaulting a young boy.
At the sentencing, Judge Robin Baird said the Crown's request of two to three years in prison was "too lenient", and his decision was greeted with sighs of relief from people in the public gallery. The defence had asked for an 18- to 24-month conditional sentence followed by probation, or an intermittent sentence.
Bencze, 45, will also have to register as a sex offender and is prohibited from using electronic devices to contact minors for the next 10 years and from going to such public areas as parks, schools, playgrounds, community centres and daycare centres for the next 20 years.
Bencze was arrested in January, 2011, and later charged with nine sexual offences related to three children. He pleaded guilty in July to one count of sexual assault involving a boy, who is now 14. The offending began when the boy was around six years old.
Bencze was initially charged with three counts of sexual assault, four counts of sexual interference, two counts of invitation to sexual touching involving three people under the age of 16 and one count of breaching his bail conditions. The remaining charges were stayed by the Crown following sentencing.
Bencze has been on bail for 18 months, unable to live at home with his wife and three children and only able to visit his children while supervised.
The sexual acts between Bencze and the boy included sexual touching and acts, as well as sexually explicit text messages.
Judge Baird read statements the boy and his mother made previously regarding the offending.
"When the abuse began, I was young and it was ongoing for years through my adolescence," wrote the boy. "I feel that I have missed out on a childhood that was meant for me, not the tainted one that I have experienced."
He wrote, "I'm trying to live and behave as a normal, average teenager," but added that he has had troubles at home, school and with making friends.
"Our son has lost his innocence," wrote the boy's mother. "Our son is embarrassed by this subject and has had his pride taken away."
During a psychiatric evaluation when Bencze was asked about the relationship with the boy Bencze said he "wanted to please him" and that being with him made Bencze become "more of a child."
"I think the complainant filled a void," Bencze said at the time.
He later acknowledged the moral impact of his actions and admitted to being angry with himself for thinking such contact was OK. However, he also claimed that the complainant initiated the sexual relationship.
"The level of the accused's recklessness and abandon is alarming," said Judge Baird. He noted that Bencze had no prior criminal record and said, "He was a normal adult with a normal background who should have known better."
