Jermaine Jackson - Jermaine Jackson: 'Michael's Death Trial Is Not About Money'

Jermaine Jackson has spoken out to insist the famous family is not interested in profiting from a lawsuit over his brother Michael's death.

The King of Pop's mother Katherine Jackson and his three children are suing concert promoters at AEG Live for wrongful death after they hired Conrad Murray as the star's doctor during preparations for his This Is It comeback tour in 2009.

They blame AEG Live bosses for Jackson's death in June, 2009 after Murray gave him an accidental overdose of anaesthetic to help him sleep during rehearsals for the concerts.

Last month (Sep13), the family demanded $290 million (£193.3 million) in compensation during the closing arguments in the Los Angeles trial, in addition to an undisclosed amount for the star's lost future earnings.

However, The Jackson 5 star Jermaine is adamant the trial has nothing to do with money and the family will not gain financially in real terms.

He tells Tmz.com, "Nobody wins, we still did not get Michael back, it's not about money, it's not about any of that, it's about my brother and we lost somebody very dear. Money means nothing.

"Money comes and goes. We lost an incredible human being, that's what is most important."

Previous reports suggest the Jacksons' total demand for damages add up to more than $40 billion. AEG Live chiefs have denied the charges.

The closing arguments came to an end last week (ends27Sep13) and the jury retired to consider its verdict on Thursday (26Sep13).

I think what gets me the most is when others have had wrongful death suits, THEY WERE "ASKING" FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT, but when it comes to this family THEY ARE "DEMANDING" MONEY! This is the negative type things that media like TMZ and yes Contact Music reports when it comes to this family which has become mostly this campaign of ANTI-JACKSON EVERYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR BOGUS REPORTING. When it comes to most celebrity's tabloids media make their rates and money by lying about these people's lives so you have to question "facts" that are repeated by Contact Music and others when they get their facts, from The Sun or the Inquirer and any other paper from overseas! People hate the fact and will never understand it when people of means lose a loved one and are not satisfied with a verdict so they have a wrongful death trial where you can only win money. Funny how people understood it when Ron Goldman's parents went after OJ for wrongful death because they didn't like the facts presented nor were they happy with the verdict OJ got, but The Jackson's shouldn't have the same rights?
