Randy Jackson slams parents for 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' interview
UPI News Service, 10/14/2010
Randy Jackson says he is outraged his parents Katherine and Joe allowed Oprah Winfrey to interview them for her U.S. chat show in their home.
Randy Jackson said via Twitter this week that he was upset by his parents' decision to appear on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" because of her opinions of the late Michael Jackson in the wake of his child molestation trial, KTLA News said Wednesday.
Michael Jackson, Randy's brother who died last year, was never convicted of any kind of child abuse.
"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 1 of those times...i found out Oprah was at our family home, my stomach ached and it still hasn't gone away," Randy Jackson tweeted Tuesday night.
"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," he added. "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.
"i can never forget when she had the show on pedophilia during the jury deliberation process in my brother's santa maria (Calif.) case... that was no coincidence... i know there are a lot of you out there upset and angry over this. i don't blame you... can you imagine how i feel. i'm angry 2."
