Crazy Joe Jackson was on Larry King Live last night and discussed — what else? — Michael. The elder Jackson was pretty adamant in letting King’s audience know that he didn’t abuse Michael and that rumors of Joe beating his children are somehow related to the days of slavery. I’m starting to wonder if JJ doesn’t have a little pill habit of his own.
Also, in a seemingly unintentional act of irony, Joe praised his own parenting skills — he made no mistakes — and pointed out that most of Michael’s childhood friends are now dead due to their lifestyles. Sigh.
