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.

Hey Jermaine, We wouldn't even remember your name if you didn't keep coming out every now and then. The 5 were forgotten a long time ago along with you and your brother. Michael was the man!

They all had talent. Michael just had more of it. The main difference was Michael had Berry Gordy and Diana Ross supporting him as a solo performer.

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 god knows their is nothing wrong with steel mill workers ... they don't die at 50 of propofal abuse

didn't Michael blow up after he left the Jackson 5, and his mother begged him to help his brothers cause they were all broke? if Jermaine has so much money why does he not pay his child support? didn't mama pay it the last time?

If anyone knows story of jackson 5 it started because Tito could play the guitar like an adult... only than did they try to harmonize off of it... and everyone knows MJ wasn't even in the group... Jermaine and Tito are great musicians which went hand in hand with show business back then. Now you don't need talent

He's crazy. MJ never needed the others. He was the only one with a successful solo career. Michael was the star; they were background noise.

Wonder what kind of Jesus Juice Jermaine is on. MJ "WAS" the Jackson 5. You see who made the money after the Group Split. Gordy sued for the Groups name making them the Jacksons. Jermaine please take your broke ass and get a job, and pay your child support

Sorry Jermaine but if Michael started off solo he still would have been a huge star.The rest of you were just his back up singers.

The Jackson 5 would be nothing without MJ, and they would've faded into obscurity if it wasn't for Michael becoming a legend. If Michael didn't become who he became, people would've been like Jermaine who??? Just like most of the 'acts' in those days. Who??
