Jermaine: 'Abuse Victim Cleared Jackson'

MICHAEL JACKSON's alleged abuse victim has cleared the KING OF POP's name by insisting the singer "never touched" him, according to the star's brother JERMAINE.
Jackson was the centre of a 13-month police investigation after Evan Chandler accused the Thriller hitmaker of molesting his son Jordan in 1993.
The star was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing in the courts, paying the then-teenager $22 million (£13.8 million) for "personal injuries arising out of claims of negligence" in return for dropping a civil suit against him.
Jordan has never spoken publicly about the case - but Jermaine claims the 29 year old has come forward since Jackson's death, admitting the late superstar never molested him.
And Jermaine believes Jordan's dad Evan committed suicide earlier this month (Nov09) because his guilt over the false accusations was too much to bear.
He says, "From the '93 case, they were accusing him (Jackson) of just the most horrible things. This kid's father has committed suicide because he just couldn't take it and now the kid has come forward and said Michael never touched him."
Officials ruled 56-year-old Evan Chandler's death a suicide after he was found with a gunshot wound to the head and a revolver in his hand at his home in New Jersey.

I wish time could be turned back and MJ could see the love that was left behind. There is/was still people that loved him for the genious that he was. He was the most talented person that will probably ever walk this earth. And like every special person, they are super sensitive in their soul. I can not begin to imagine the pain the allegations caused him and the NEWS MEDIA HELPED TO DESTROY him. I really can't begin to stomach the reporters because they are like sharks feeding in a freenzy of untruth, but all the while trying desperately to make the truth into a lie. God help these people. Hollywood and the Entertainment world is a really sick place and Michael was right trying to shield his children from it. I love and miss him, the world is not the same without him. May you rest in peace Michael and your children be forever embraced by your families protection. Never believe what you have not seen with your own eyes!

As much as I would like to take this as fact (I desperately want MJ to be cleansed of the sexual deviant tag), I find the internet to be dubious on matters of truth and Jermaine Jackson even more dubious as a source. He seems to have had a sore spot about Michael's appeal and superiority as a performer for a long time. Not that it's all that credible, but a writer once close to the Jackson clan has publicly claimed (in the time since Michael's death) that, years ago, Jermaine was set to participate in a book about the family in which he intended to reveal that--among other "truths"--Michael spurned the advances of women and was a magnet for gay men. I saw this man interviewed on a nationally syndicated newsmagazine just a few months ago. He was visibly upset at the suggestion that the claims were in fact his and not Jermaine's. He repeatedly stated he was meant to write the book as told to him by Jermaine. He said that Jermaine's wife had encouraged Jermaine to produce the book to earn money and tell "his" story. It was reported that Jermaine dropped the pursuit after Michael heard about his plans. I would have tossed off the claim except--after Michael's death--I'd seen footage of Jermaine during a 2003 appearance on "Larry King Live" talking about the potential book and showing a possible cover for it. In a later interview, Jermaine denied ever having plans to do the book or something. But there was footage of him ON LKL talking to Larry about it! How can we accept this story about Jordie as truth? It's too much to hope for. And little comfort when it's possible that Michael's inappropriate behavior with adolescents reaches as far back as his teens. It's even littler comfort because what good will it really do Michael? He's dead! I don't know what to believe. I know that I want to believe he never did anything inappropriate or homoerotic with these boy-friends. It's exhausting and Jermaine's sibling competition with Michael makes him untrustworthy, currently. For all we know, Jermaine could just be repeating the same story that's been floating around on the 'net since July '09

Truth prevails...'s picture

Truth prevails...

Says Jermaine... Really?I would like to see a statement from Jordan himself. Is this a reliable site? Let's hope this news resounds the world over. But like MJ said; good news doesn't sell...

It is about time (way to long)the kid finally came out.I believe the kids dad committed suicide out of guilt as well. To the person who doesn't know what to believe about this story.Believe this,The Jackson Family are a very close knit family and have been since before the Jackson 5 hit the airwaves,and they always will be.

Now that the gatekeeper is dead (Evan Chandler), the Jacksons have a free-for-all trying to convince people of Michael Jackson's innocence. Jermaine Jackson is one cunning individual. He knows very well that the kid who accused Jackson of child molestation back in 1993 is still bound by the agreement both parties signed not to discuss the case in specific details. He also knows that the rumor which started right after Jackson's death to the effect that Jordan Chandler admitted Jackson never touched him was started by someone in the Jackson camp or by some crazy fan. These Jacksons will twist the truth to the end.
