Gary Lewis, the pop star son of comedian Jerry Lewis, has blamed his father for the death of his younger brother. The 1960s Gary Lewis and The Playboys frontman has suggested that his comedian father all but abandoned his son Joseph when he discovered his growing drug addiction, and it was this abandonment that caused the young man to die.

In October 2009, Joseph Lewis suffered a sudden seizure and died in Utah, however Gary claims that his brother's health would not have declined to such a drastic extend if he had still had the support of his father. Lewis spoke to 'The Globe' to explain how his father's neglect caused his brother to die, saying: "Joe had problems his entire life and I blame our father."

He criticised his father, saying: "Jerry Lewis is a mean and evil person. He was never loving and caring toward me or my brothers. I don't know if Joe's death is drug related, but I believe it could have been prevented if he and my father had been on better terms. I believe he partly died of a broken heart. [My father] doesn't really care. He's more worried about his career and his image than his own family."

I've always loved Jerry Lewis. He's allowed to make mistakes like the rest of us.Jerry Lewis needs to lower his unrealistic expectations of himself. Then he'll be able to forgive himself when he makes mistakes. Because he can't forgive himself nor others for mistakes he alienates the most precious people in his life. I think he totally loves his 6 sons, adopted daughter and his biological daughter. But the world's high expectations of him & his children have kept him from being close to them. The World is evil to do this Jerry. Jerry needs to dump the world and embrace all 8 of his kids who would warmly embrace in return.
