Tito Jackson

Jermaine Didn't Mean Michael Would Be Nothing

Without Jackson 5

EXCLUSIVE

Tito Jackson calmly and coolly defended his brother Jermaine, who told TMZ earlier in the week, "If it wasn't for the Jackson 5, there would be no Michael Jackson."

Tito told our photog in Calabasas Friday ... Jermaine was misunderstood, and he explains why.

Tito also bristled at Debbie Rowe's comment to us ... the Jackson 4 are all bad influences on Michael's kids.

TMZ broke the story ... Debbie intends to seek guardianship of Paris and Prince -- her biological kids -- and would also like to bring Blanket along for the ride, because she believes the current guardianship is damaging all 3 children.

If the MJ was nothing with out the Jackson 5, that's means they can continue to make great music and don't need MJ's money to support themselves or their parents. Guess MJ's money can only be used for his kids.

Why don't you let your idiot brother explain what he meant? I am sure he meant exactly what he said only I don't understand how Michael exploded on the music scene and you guys have been doing the same nothing for 40 years.

In other words: Shut up Jerkmaine and don't talk when you are asked stuff by paparazzi. Tito's the only one in that family that has style. No comment, have a nice day. That's how it's done!

Truth is    

Gwey useless one. I was cracking up at the way jerkmaine looked on wife swap. His ego is bigger than the globe for no good reason. He doesn't have a wife...he has a maid/assistant. What a jerk face

Jermaine Jackson is always saying/doing stuff to milk Michael Jackson even in his death. If MJ would not be big without the Jacskon 5, then how come no other members of the Jackson 5 never became as big on the entertainment scene? Jermaine Jackson, stop trying to (a) take credit for Michael Jackson's success (in the hopes that it may make you successful), (b) stop trying to continue using MJ's name to make yourself relevant and (c) If you hope that by claiming credit for his success , you may be able to "sue," you are sadly mistaken. What are you going to do next - take credit for Janet Jackson's success as well? #Embarrassing.

Debbie Rowe, please just stay gone. You gave up those kids and you were paid for them. In the eyes of the law, the kids are not yours at all, even though you are the one that provided the eggs that made them.

Everyone just needs to get jobs and move on.
Let MichaelJackson rest in peace. Lord knows his family put him through enough and milked him enough when he was still alive.
