Jermaine Jackson

Debbie Rowe is CRAZY

MJ Would Be NOBODY Without the Jackson 5

EXCLUSIVE

041414_jermaine_jackson_launch_v2Jermaine Jackson is reeling over Debbie Rowe's comment that Michael Jackson told her his brothers were talentless .... saying Michael owes his fame to his older siblings.

Jermaine was blunt in Calabasas Monday, telling TMZ, "If it wasn't for the Jackson 5 there would be no Michael Jackson," adding, "That's what gave him the launching pad to become what he became."

You have to watch the whole video. It's shocking.

As we reported, Debbie Rowe's been saying -- Michael believed the only one with talent in his family was Janet.

Jermaine also addresses Debbie's claims he's using MJ's kids to mooch off the estate.

Jermaine suggests he doesn't need the MJ estate's money because he made a fortune with the Jackson 5 -- tell that to the baby mama who's been hunting him down for child support for years.

What a load of crap. Michael's brothers live off the fat of the land.

He's right. The "Jackson 5" was unique and was what caught the attention of the music industry and fans alike. MJ by himself --at first-- would have been just so much noise in the wind.

MJ was obviously THE talent among them...but his chances of ever making it as a solo act from the start were slim & none.

Can't believe he's out there like that. It was apparent on their first hit record who the star was, Everyone knew it then and everyone knows it now. Janet ain't that great either !

He's right, and I'll add that the best song's MJ or any of his brothers ever recorded was in the early years of the Jackson 5

Well, I come from the generation of the Jackson Five and they all contributed to putting The Jackson Five on the map. Yes,a Michael stepped into the lead singer position in 1966 but the whole group was popular. Michael may have eventually broken out on his own but, believe me, The Jackson Five were stars in the 1960's. Just because Jermaine allegedly has child support in arrears does not mean he's without his own fortune. He may just not want to pay.

Jermaine is so far out of touch with reality and that is whypeople laugh at him. A few years ago he couldn't get back into the U.S. because his passport was suspended for child support arrears. Jermaine had his mother asked the Estate for a loan to pay Jermaine's arrears and the Estate said no. Arrears happened again Fall 2013. MJ supported Jermaine and Randy's kids, Katherine & Joseph for 20 years. I have yet to hear one sibling say thank you Michael, since MJ has died. Jermaine also owes Segye Times money unless his mother paid that for him too.

Jermaine also forgets how he, Janet and Randy kidnapped their mother and lied to the world about it. Their mother threw them under the bus to the judge.

As a child Michael could sing, dance and write songs. He was always the leader and bread winner of the family and it was his talent alone that made the J5. Jermaine forgets he was the one who left the J5 to try and make it on his own and he failed. He's been riding MJ's coattails since MJ died and he still continues to fail. That was proven in their last gig in Vegas when Meatloaf surpassed the J4 with a steady audience.

Word to the Badd, Jermaine. The J5 would have never succeeded without Michael which is proven to this very day.
