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 dumbass statement! MJ would have no children and this whole conversation wouldn't be happening at all if not for Debbie Rowe and her contribution. This whole thing is so redundant / salacious. No Need. SHE is their mother, SHE has offered to have a relationship with the kids, THEY have said the want it. Who gives a flying f*ck what any other Jackson wants? Really, what does Katherine, Jermaine, Tito or any of the even-less-memorable members of this family have to say? Nothing. IF Michael thought ANY of his brothers would be good surrogate fathers he'd have put that in his will. He didn't, the only person he trusted with his kids was his mother. So Jackie, Tito, whoever the other Jackson 5 brothers are.... p*ss off, you're not making any more money for nothing here, Michael protected his kids from that level of exploitation. Now go do whatever it is that you do that earns you a living (oh really? you do nothing but exploit your child brother for a living, after all these years?). Losers, get a job, get an income that doesn't involve exploiting the talents and
achievements of your DEAD BROTHER, you losers!

Jermaine is way past delusional! Planet Hollywood cut short their run there because of low turn out they weren't making money and he still doesn't know we're his next gig is. Everyone knows that he and the rest of the family used their mother to get money out of Michael. Search the internet for Michael's phone conversations, listen to Michael talk ablution his family. You'll understand why he stayed away from them!

MJ was a weirdo but he had more talent in his thumb than Jermaine and the rest of them have put together. Delusional fool.

It's weird arguing about the Jacksons with young people who were not alive to experience their reign. They were better and had more longevity than any boy band that has come after them. It's so sad to see young people disrepect their great legacy and their family bond because of what Michael became in his last 20 years of life do to drug addiction.

Ok the 5 was Michaels rocketship to fame. But Michael made the 5. With that being said WTF has jermaine EVER done other than ride michaels coattails? You know they would pull the same **** on Janet if they could. But unfortunately for them janet has a much stronger personality than Michael.

Jackson 5 would have been a bunch of talentless hacks if it weren't for Michael. He is the reason the group had success. As for the fortune he's made, really, is that in Mom's pocket too because you have your hands so deep in her pockets you're past your elbows! You're a joke!!!

Unfortunately only people who don't know African American culture would say that the Jackson 5 did not make MJ. Even in MJ's latest interviews he would always show an exclusive J5 performance in the background. If it was not for the J5 MJ would have been a steel mill worker. But Allah knows their is nothing wrong with steel mill workers ... they don't die at 50 of propofal abuse
