One of the most painful and public hearsays that haunted Michael Jackson before his death rested on accusations of being a child molester. Now almost two years since his tragic passing, MJ’s momma refuses to have her son’s name associated with the title.
During an interview this morning on Today, Katherine Jackson unbendingly stated that her youngest son never molested a child including 1993’s most memorable accuser. “As far as Michael being a child molester … that’s the biggest lie ever been told,” Katherine told Matt Lauer. She also insists MJ had all intentions of fighting off the suit, but stook to a settlement after following his lawyers’ bad advice.
When Lauer asked why MJ went that route Katherine said, “His lawyers told him he should just pay the money .. they thought that just paying the money and shut the people up would be the right thing to do.”
Katherine also said she personally asked MJ why he made the move and MJ told her, “I didn’t want to do it either mother, I wanted to fight it because I knew it wasn’t the truth.”
MJ’s mom said she read an article after MJ died where the 1993 accuser allegedly admitted he made up the story against Michael.
