Randy Jackson is furious his parents allowed Oprah Winfrey into the family home for a new tell-all interview, insisting the talk show host is "the last person on earth" his brother Michael Jackson would want to speak to his children. Winfrey visited the late singer's mother Katherine on Saturday, October 9 at her Encino, California property, where she interviewed the family matriarch, her husband Joe and took a tour of the property.

The media mogul is also said to have sat down with the "Thriller" hitmaker's three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket - and their uncle Randy is fuming the youngsters have been thrust into the spotlight against his famous brother's wishes. In a series of posts on his page, he writes, "Let me say that I love my mother and father. I am humbly grateful to have them as my parents but I don't always agree with the choices they make. This is one of those times."

"I found out Oprah was at our family home, my stomach ached and it still hasn't gone away. I had no prior knowledge this was going to happen. It was deliberately kept from me because they knew I would have tried to stop it. I know how Oprah feels about my brother and family. I also know that he would not have wanted this... in fact, she is the last person on earth he would want around his children."

Randy admits his grievances towards Winfrey stem from a program she broadcast around the time of Michael's 2005 abuse trial, based in Santa Maria, California, which saw the star charged with offenses against teenager Gavin Arvizo. He explains, "I can never forget when she had the show on paedophilia during the jury deliberation process in my brother's Santa Maria case. That was no coincidence."

Michael Jackson was acquitted on all counts after a five-month trial but Randy admits he's still uneasy about Winfrey interviewing his close family members for the upcoming special, which is due to air in the coming weeks. He adds, "I'm angry... just trying to hold myself together."

People like Oprah thrives on dirt and the worst is that a lot of people listen to her. She's no good, like B Walters wasn't. I wouldn't want them around either.

Randy fret not yourself because of evil doers. Take heart knowing full well based on your religious background that God has a way of taking what the evil one meant for evil and turning it into something good. Dont be dismayed, God still has MJ's back. He also has Price, Paris and Blanket's back. A hedge of protection is placed around them by the prayer of true christians. Take heart dear brother, you didnt try to take the spotlight like your other siblings, but you came through for MJ "from an honest" perspective. Perahps you could learn Jermaine a thing or two

Pansie you said it well my dear. I hope no other person has to ever go through what MJ went through. His suffering was in itself and assignment against him from Satan himself. But guess what Pansie God had MJ's back that is why he was acquitted. Alas Satan and his angels would not have that so they used the haters and the media to further destroy his physical form, but guess what they havent destroyed his spirit. That's under God's protection and haters, media or Oprah cant touch his spirit. Maybe, just maybe M WILL indeed have the last laugh

NellieO123 and Quintessential I totally agree with you. I think that Lisa Marie Presley was the worst mistake he made in his life. He loved her but she never loved him, that's why she refued to have his kids. When you truly love someone you dont jump on the first band wagon to bash that person. Michael needed an honourable woman in his life and none of his two "wives" can by no stretch of the imagination be considered honourable or virtuous which is what he longed for. Secondly, Oprah has to live with her conscience for what she did to Michael. Her time will come mogul or no mogul. God always finds ways to humble us. I think she should apologize to his kids for what she did to their dad. You cant beat evidence, if he was guilty the FBI would have been on to him like a fly on sweet especially since he was black. It's amazing how Satan uses his angels to destroy people who are targeted by God for blessings. MJ dearest your light will surely shine through your kids, and I declare that no weapon that is formed against you or them WILL prosper and every tongue that rises up against you and your kids will be brought down. THAT I do declare WILL come to pass. My words WILL NOT return unto me void

I don't think she should be allowed to interview the kids based on the way she felt about Michael and most times I like Oprah. I just think she was very critical of and unfair to Michael. Hopefully, it isn't true and the kids won't appear.

Randy is speaking based on how he feels about what O did in past interviews and he is MJ's brother. As Rev. John P Kee said in his previous song: "Stand for rightousness..." So how do some people think MJ's fans feel about all the negative comments that were said by others and especially his ex-wife not DR. But it was ok for her to say marrying him was the worst mistake of her life. Besides, she is O's cousin. Dosent matter about how much money you have to give away to fans, if you do not have compassion similar to what MJ demonstrated to go along with that you are still no greater than a crook.

Oprah is trying to rewrite the history. She knows she was wrong in the unnecessary attacks on Michael's name. Too little too late Miss O

I feel the same. Oprah should apologize to that family. She attacked Michael so often when he was alive. I am sorry Randy
