New York (NYDailyNews)– Michael Jackson’s dad reluctantly admitted Monday that he beat the superstar and the rest of his musical brood – but insisted it was for their own good.
“It kept them out of jail and kept them right,” Joe Jackson said.
The Jackson family patriarch fessed up on the Oprah Winfrey show after being prodded to do so by his wife, Katherine – and after first denying raising a hand to the Gloved One.
“I don’t think he was afraid of me,” he insisted. “I never beat him. That never happened.”
