Jermaine Jackson

Debbie Rowe is CRAZY

MJ Would Be NOBODY Without the Jackson 5

4/15/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

I so totally agree with Jermaine! Jackson 5 put Michael in the spotlight to be seen and considered as a solo artist. Besides, what Michael allegedly said: we all have talents. As far as I see Jackson brothers know it and they know their talents.

oh really     

I dont know how any of these adults , spilling all this dirt to TMZ, is supposed to benefit the kids and make them feel secure and loved.
Harvey Levin is on pretty friendly terms with Debbie Rowe , which is why she is talking to him, about this stuff,notice he never says any negative regarding her.
Harvey is leaving out , her fiance is an ex gay porn producer, who Debbie testified , in 2005 , was bragging about all the money he was going to make off MJ troubles ..She referred to him as an opportunistic vulture.
Even after MJ death, she and Schaffel were heading off to Japan to sell footage of MJ going back to Gary in 2003.
However , they did stop at the cemetery, to pay their respects, as well as a photo opt , before they went.
I believe they are both in the Phillipines , righ tnow , on a business trip regarding a girl band he wants to produce.
So he is still trying ot break into the music business, and Mj kids names being brought up , garner a lot of publicity.
Debbie is now saying , that MJ would call her for advice, yet in 2005 ,under oath, she said she hadnt spoken to him in years .
I doubt MJ spoke to her after that testimony, since she was cooperating with the prosecutor Mj felt had an obsessive vendetta against him for a decade, and she was actually wearing a wire for him.
She may have gotten on the stand and flipped on the prosecutors, and told the truth, that MJ was being set up ..
But somehow. I seriously doubt MJ would trust her after that ..
TMZ leaves alot out.Interesting that they would get engaged, and Debbie decides , at this late date , to make a play for guardianship.Why is this again? Because Prince is swearing.
Debbie has a gutter mouth herself.She wears it like a badge of honor.
I really dont think what Jermaine said was a dis to MJ, but TMZ is spinning it like that , for hits.
And I dont see how any of this being put on on the internet , but these so called adults, shows anyone cares about these kids , because they are putting them in the uncomfortable position of being in the middle and asking them to chose sides.
As usual, adult agendas masquerading under the guise of caring for children.
It is a shame , so few people consider the consequences of their words and how it will effect these kids.

To say Michael Jackson would be a nobody without the Jackson 5 is the craziest **** I've ever heard. YES because of the Jackson 5 he got a early start on his career because of them and honed his performaning skills early but without but that could have happened later in his life if he had pursued a career because make no mistake aboutIit his talent was what made that group. ..Ifyou take Michael from that group they go nowhere.....at all. THe only argument you could ever make about MJ is that without Joe Jackson we wouldn't have had the MJ we got

"the cream always rises to the top"
MJ's talent was destined to surface- and it did a bit faster because of greedy Joe shoving the Jackson 5 out there and pushing little Michael to the front because anyone could see that he was the only one with "star" quality- Joe was most demanding and cruel to Michael because he knew that without him, his sons wouldn't rise to the money and fame he wanted.
I'd say that MJ made the Jackson 5... not the other way around- wrong again Jermaine

It was Jermaine who helped Michael write many songs and music.

Ok, that video just shows that Jermaine is off his rocker. MJ would not have been anything without the Jackson 5? Well, without the Jackson 5, MJ may have gotten his big break later in his teen years, but it would have happened. Talent like that cannot be contained.

First, jermaine is a deadbeat father. He bought a Ferrari last year though. But he is right that mj does owe credit to the family. Michael learned to moonwalk by dodging his father's punches

Did you notice he said that Prince was a nice young man or something to that effect but did not say anything like that about the other two? What does that mean? Is Prince going along with the 'program' maybe the other two not so much?
