The Jacksons believe their brother Michael Jackson was persecuted like Jesus. Speaking to The Guardian newspaper, Jermaine said: "God blessed him because he knew what Michael was going to do with his talent. He was a voice for children who were starving, and he brought the world sing like 'We Are The World', 'Heal The World' and 'Man In The Mirror'. Everything he did was for the betterment of mankind. Look what Jesus did when he walked the earth. He did all those miracles and they still found a way to nail him up on that cross."

The four brothers went on to allege Dr. Conrad Murray - who is currently serving jail time for involuntary manslaughter for his part in Michael's death from Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - was a stooge of his record company Sony and they believe the label deliberately orchestrated his downfall by planting allegations of child molestation in the media. The 'Thriller' singer bought a 50 per cent stake in Sony/ATV in 1985 and his siblings have a "conspiracy theory" that the label wanted to diminish his popularity and power to wrestle control of the valuable catalogue of songs back from Michael.

Jermaine accusingly said: "Bottom line? They killed him. The doctor was just a figure in a bigger hand."

He wasn't the Messiah he was a person with a lot of issues who sang pop songs and danced a bit. If he didn't want to be accused of child abuse he shouldn't have slept with children.
