Tito Jackson

Jermaine Didn't Mean Michael Would Be Nothing

Without Jackson 5

EXCLUSIVE

041914_tito_jackson_launch
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.

Tito seems cool.I am glad that he lost the Bowler hat that look is not popping in 2014 Tupac tried to bring it back but as far as someone approaching 60 trying too it looks like something outta the 1800's.

If Michael was an only child they would have gotten backup singers to essentially create a boy band with him as the star. He would have been famous either way.

Tito looks like a middle age woman. What MAN wears a crocheted (ugly one at that) vest and a gold heart shaped pendant.
Out of respect to MJ's children--something TMZ doesn't seem to understand-I'll refrain from saying what I want.
But the bottom line is Debbie is entitled to have custody to her children. I think she's coming from a good place and the only good thing the Jackson family did is rescue the kids from the freak show Michael created--under the guise of protecting their privacy.

Prove it!
There is no Michael Jackson now but you're still here so you and your star maker brothers can go in the studio right now and pump out a hit.
Right?
Just one hit.
Should only take about two hours.
Well??
Yeah, that's what I thought.

If it wasn't for the older brothers, there might not had been the Jackson 5. If it wasn't for MJ, the Jacksons most likely would not be were they are today.

This Debbie wants to take the kids story first popped up onRadar, then Showbiz411 and E, News. Right after the verdict came back against Katherine Jackson. Now it has found it's way to TMZ with a little twist. All those stories never got a comment from Debbie publicly, and the only time that she commented about either of her children was to confirm that Paris did attempt suicide to Entertainment Tonight. So far, no papers have been filed and until that time, everyone should just stop reporting rumors from un-named sources. Radar online E! News and Showbiz411 all reported after the verdict came back against Katherine Jackson that Debbie was going to seek guardianship. Until something is official, all TMZ reported on was a story from an un-named source who claims to be a friend of Debbie's. Heck, it could very well be bubbles for all we know. It's not the first time TMZ has been taken in.

He's probably misunderstood the most because he talks the most.

Here is some news that is a fact, jpJackie Jackson has twins born several weeks ago. He could have been collecting Social Security in a couple of years, but now he will have to keep working or something to take care of River and Jaylen for the next 18 years,
