In a stunning interview tonight with the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation,” Randy Jackson — brother of the late Michael Jackson — portrayed Monday’s fracas at the Jackson compound and the reports of his mother Katherine Jackson being missing as part of a nefarious plot by the current executors of Michael Jackson’s will to “deflect the tension away” from accusations of “criminal misconduct on their part.”
“They’re using the children to try and put pressure on my mom and try to get her to come out and say things in her favor,” Randy Jackson told Sharpton in a phone-in discussion.
Randy Jackson and several of his siblings recently sent a letter to the will’s executors — John Branca and John McLain — claiming that the will was a fake.
“They know that they’ve been caught. They know that they falsified the document. What they’re trying to do is put the attention on something else.”
Significantly, it was Sharpton himself who vouched during the live broadcast for Randy Jackson’s claims that Michael Jackson could not have been in California on the day the will was signed and notarized there.
“That weekend that Michael Jackson was to have signed that will in Los Angeles, he was in fact in Harlem with me that weekend,” Sharpton said.
Randy Jackson went on to state that the Jackson siblings had gone to see Michael Jackson’s children to assure them that they had access to their grandmother Katherine.
“We went there to let Paris and Prince know that they can visit with or talk to their grandma at any time,” Jackson said. “We were denied access to our own home by security and [their cousin] Trent.”
“We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from… bullying,” Jackson continued.
