Jermaine Jackson feels it is time to set the record straight, as it were, about brother Michael’s preference for young boys.
Pitching a tell-all book about his brother’s life, Jermaine is finally letting the world in on the dark secret the Jackson family has been hiding so effectively all these years: Michael (gasp!) might be gay.
Jermaine Jackson feared his kid brother Michael might be guilty of child molestation, but backed him at trial because he thought the pop star would commit suicide in prison, according to a bombshell book proposal obtained by the Daily News.
In a tell-all outline shopped to publishers just weeks after Michael’s arrest in November 2003, Jermaine described the Pop King as a sometimes out-of-control drug and booze abuser with a calculating mean streak and “a thing for young children.”
“…I don’t want to tell you my brother’s innocent. I am not certain that he is,” Jermaine said in the tome-teaser drafted by author Stacy Brown, who co-authored “Michael Jackson: The Man Behind the Mask” with the singer’s former publicist, Bob Jones.
It’s nice to see Jermaine’s altruistic concern for the welfare of children. Among his other bombshells: Michael changes the color of his skin! And it was Michael who killed Jermaine’s musical career, not his lack of singing ability! Also: LaToya isn’t really a psychic.
