Janet Jackson Claims Michael Was ‘In Denial’ Over Abuse

Janet Jackson is coming to terms with her brother, Michael Jackson’s death. Speaking with Oprah this week, Jackson said the family knew he had a problem, tried to intervene, but also knew Michael was in denial. “[he] was very much in denial,” Jackson told Oprah while promoting “Why Did I Get Married Too” with Tyler Perry. As for the intervention, Jackson says they “tried an intervention several times” but were unsuccessful. Moving forward, Jackson is happy that Michael’s children are surrounded by loving family. “They’re dealing with it,” Jackson told Oprah. “And thank God they have their family.” As previously reported, Jackson stars in the follow up to 2007s “Why Did I Get Married”. She has also been cast for Perry’s forthcoming adaptation of ‘For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf’.
