Katherine Jackson Fights Back Against Her Husband

Katherine Jackson

Joe Jackson faces Katherine Jackson's lawyers over his "You killed Michael" comment.

Looks like Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's mother and guardian of his children and estate, is finally growing a backbone when it comes to putting up with her no good husband Joe.

His latest bad behavior? Well that would be going on record in an interview with News of the World to blame his wife for the death of their son, Michael Jackson.

"I said this would have never happened if you had went and been with him,"Joe recalls saying to his wife, whom he purportedly begged to check up on a Michael who was "looking kinda funny and frail."

"She didn't want to do that because she was afraid she was invading his privacy," he says in the interview.

What is wrong with Joe Jackson? Why would he want to piss off the one person who has been giving him everything he ever wanted: License to profit off the King of Pop and a weekly allowance?

She was the one person who stood between Joe and the Michael Jackson estate, and now he's got her calling up the lawyers.

"Joe Jackson's statements and conduct toward Mrs. Jackson are outrageous," says her personal lawyer, Adam Streisand. "The world knows Mrs. Jackson has always been a loving and caring mother and grandmother, and she had a very special relationship with Michael. The world also knows who Joe Jackson is and he seems bent on never letting us forget."

And from Heward Weitzman, lawyer for the Michael Jackson estate, we hear this: "The inference by Joe Jackson that Mrs. Jackson was in any way responsible for Michael's death is preposterous.  Katherine Jackson was a supportive and loving mother throughout Michael's life.  His love and respect for her is reflected in his estate plan." 

Uh oh.
