Jermaine Jackson broken down in tears as he tried is best to defend his brother Michael after a documentary tarnish the image the King of Pop.
The singer has said the star of a new documentary about s*xual abuse claims against Michael “tried to sue the family for billions after changing his story.”
Wade Robson, who is involved in the controversial documentary Leaving Neverland, has said he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson alongside another victim, who has said the star staged a mock wedding at his ranch.
However, Michael’s brother Jermaine has called Wade’s testimony into question, saying while he denied any sexual abuse under oath at Michael’s trial, he also tried to sue the family for £1.5billion after Michael’s death.
Jermaine said that Wade denied being sexually abused in Michael’s trial in 2005, categorically stating this under oath and also to his own mother.
But the singer has claimed since then, Wade’s mother Joy contacted his ghost writer to try to “cement Michael’s innocence,” after which Wade “changed his story.”
He said: “What people don’t know is Wade changed his story that he maintained before and after Michael’s death.
“He tried to go out and shoot a book deal, no publisher would touch him, he even sued the estate for £1.5billion, it was tossed out of court.
“He wanted to go out for the head choreography part for Cirque du Soleil, so what was left for him was to do a documentary.
“So he got in front of a camera with a bunch of people and spewed all this nonsense.”
The emotional singer also begged for people to “leave us alone” as he tried desperately to hold it together, continuing to profess Michael’s innocence.
Jermaine said: “I’m 1000 per cent sure because Michael was tried by a jury, and he was acquitted on all this because there was real evidence, there was nothing there.
“Our family are tired, we’re very tired. Let this man rest, he did a lot for the world, let him rest.
“We lost Michael, we lost our father, we’re still mourning. We lost a lot, just leave us alone, leave him alone, let him rest. He deserves to rest.”
He also said Wade “dated two of my nieces” and “attends family barbecues,” making the pain of the documentary even harder for the family, who he says have “pulled together” in the pain.
“Let this man rest. He did a lot for the world, let him rest. I will say this, there is no truth to this documentary.”
He went on: “It’s been very tough… when these things happen we pull together…He was cleared of all of this…it’s nonsense…We are living in a time when people can say anything and then it’s taken as truth, under oath he said what he said, they would rather believe a documentary.”
On whether they would look to sue, an emotional Jermaine added: “That’s something for the estate.”
The filmmaker of the documentary added he stands by the documentary and believes the testimony of the two men who have come forward to speak.
