Insisting the physician is just a 'fall guy' in the case of Michael Jackson's sudden death, Jermaine hopes further revelations will come to light during the August trial.

Jermaine Jackson has sparked further controversy over the death of his brother Michael Jackson - he's convinced the star's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray is just a "fall guy" and the person to blame for his passing is somebody "higher up than the doctor". Murray stands accused of administering the powerful anaesthetic Propofol which led to Jackson's death last year and has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

He has been allowed to keep his medical licence ahead of his preliminary trial date, which has been set for August. Jermaine intends to be in court to see Murray and "support" his famous family - and he's sure further revelations will come to light during the trial. During an appearance on U.S. talk show "Larry King Live", he says, "I'm there for support. There to keep my mother strong and my father and the family."

"It's not even important whether he keeps his licence or they take his licence away. The bottom line is Michael is not here. What he administered in Michael should have been in a hospital setting and he did not act alone. (We) all feel - myself, Randy, La Toya, all of us, feel that he's the fall guy. And knowing how this whole thing works, and knowing it's higher up than just the doctor, and he's there. And if you squeeze him hard enough, he will talk."

And Jermaine is adamant the truth will one day be revealed: "This family is not going to let it not happen. The world needs to know the truth. We need to know the truth. You need to know the truth. We're going to do everything in our power as a family to make sure the world knows what really happened."

Also, Jermaine Jackson has defended his father Joe after he accused his estranged wife Katherine of failing to step in and help her famous son Michael in the run-up to his death, insisting the comments were taken "out of context". Joe Jackson blasted his spouse in an interview with British tabloid the News of the World earlier this month, claiming Katherine could have done more to prevent the Thriller hitmaker spiraling into prescription drug addiction before his tragic passing last year.

Katherine's lawyers hit back, insisting she did everything she could to help Michael - and Jermaine has backed his mum, insisting his father's comments were misinterpreted. He told Larry King, "You know, Larry, everybody has taken that out of context. I think my father said that because my mother... was very, very close to him. And she could get him to say and do things before my father and before any of us, so the fact that he said my mother should have done that..."

"But the bottom line is we all were very busy in trying to tear down this wall that Michael surrounded himself with. These were the outside people who didn't want us in. And that's what he (Joe) meant by breaking that barrier or trying to. She (Katherine) should have been more attentive to trying to get through because he knew she had a pass all the time. Not a pass, but just an OK, just to get through it. It was tough. Very tough."

The plastic surgeon who did Michael's nose knew how much tissue to remove or not, to maintain facial aesthetics but he went beyond moral and medical ethics and disfigured Michael beyond repair. He should take some responsibility for Michael's downward spiral and mental self image which probably encouraged his insomnia. The person who initially found Michael unresponsive maybe gave Michael the fatal dose after Michael fell into a deep sleep resulting from the usual dose given by the Docter. Did this person use a needle instead of the the drip that was already in Michael's arm. Would the needle marks be the ones referred to that suggest an addiction? Is Michael right or Left handed? Which elbow was the needle marks in? Which arm was the drip in? Why was the person who found Michael unconscious, in Michael's room? Wh called the para-medics before notifying the Doctor of Michael's condition? Finally, if Michael was sedated from the usual dose of medication given by the Doctor, how was he able to give himself more?

He had many reasons to go into hiding. The 50 concerts, the press, no privacy, people wanting to sue him, court and greedy layers, shame of child allegations. He was afraid he would be murdered and several members of the family claimed foul play. Why does the Dr. still have his license? An overdose of a drug, not legal for outside a hospital, given for 2 years just to sleep, with all the other drugs. He didnt call for help, didnt have the safety equipment, walked out of the room,Cpr on a bed? A cardiologist? It dont add up. Something is fishy.

does anyone know about the lawsuit the jackson family had against michael? it was for, i think, 20 million dollars. the reason being that michael was going to do his concert before a planned one with the brothers. his loving family said they would lose millions and sued him. i read about this before michael died, but can't find that news story again.

"Bottom line is Michael is not here" If Jerealous wasn't such an attention and money ho he would make that his motivation in getting justice for his very famous brother, the legendary Michael Jackson. Granted, Murray is not alone in this but he is hardly someone to defend. I am taken aback that this greazy fucker would defend Murray. As jealous and this leather faced fool was of Michael, I would not put it past him to have been somewhat involved in MJs murder. I know that is a stretch, but when it comes to this creep, anything goes. Jerealous has ALWAYS been jealous of MJ. He said there was a wall MJ had put up. Against the family only? That is too strange to believe. MJ was a lonely man. Strange that he would barricade himself from his own blood kin. Makes you wonder. However, I can see why MJ separated himself away from this envious bitchass fool.

JOe, Jermaine ur both sick! Whether or not someone else was involved, the fact is that Murray knowingly administered several sedatives and a lethal anesthetic for which he had no proper training, equipment or staff. In addition, he failed to seek medical attention in a timely manner and withheld crucial evidence that might have saved MJs life. He's a murderer! :(
