Lewis' Son: 'Father Partly Responsable For Brother's Death'

Comedian JERRY LEWIS' pop star son GARY has sensationally blamed his father for the death of his younger brother.
Lewis Jr, who fronted 1960s group Gary Lewis & The Playboys, claims his father turned his back on brother Joseph after learning he was a drug addict and the heartbreak killed the funnyman's youngest kid.
Joseph Lewis died after suffering a seizure in Utah in October (09) - but Gary insists his brother would have been happier and healthier if his father hadn't cut him off.
The This Diamond Ring hitmaker tells America's the Globe, "Joe had problems his entire life and I blame our father. 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."

well, i believe that Mr. Lewis understands what he is doing and why. he will have to make a big decision one day soon, about his sons and about his God that he speaks of often on TV. Does he believe that God is pleased with his treatment of his sons? i don't think so, and neither does he. we are living in a society that comes up with all kinds of excuses for doing wrong, but the fact and reality is, there are no excuses, just do what is right and move on. Mr Lewis, do what is right and live on. love your sons, they are a blessing from God, they are the ones who will keep your blood line going for generations to come.

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.
