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."
