(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Following a rage and a series of threats from younger brother Michael, Jermaine Jackson has reportedly pulled the plug on his planned tell-all book about the controversial celebrity family.
Sources told the New York Daily News that Michael vowed to evict Jermaine from the Jackson family home and sue him and anyone else who wrote anything negative about him.
The book, reportedly titled, “Legacy: Surviving the Best and the Worst,” was ghost-written by author Stacy Brown.
In a shocking teaser for the book, Jermaine said that Michael has “a thing for young children” and that he feared his kid brother might be guilty of the child molestation charges he faced in late 2003. Jermaine also talked about Michael’s alleged drug and alcohol abuse, claimed that Michael’s two oldest children were fathered by a sperm donor, and suggested that their father, Joe, molested their sisters Rebbie and LaToya when they were kids.
Brown told the paper that when Michael got his hands on the book, he went nuts, forced Jermaine to cry, then threatened to throw Jermaine out of the Hawenhurst, the family home in Encino, California. Michael owns the mansion, but Jermaine, mother Katherine, brother Randy, and Jermaine’s ex-wife, Alejandra, who has children by both Jermaine and Randy, all live there.
Brown said he stopped considering Jermaine and the other Jacksons as friends, after the experience made him realize “how out of touch, unreal, unrealistic and dysfunctional” the family actually is.
Brown told the paper, “In a way I’m glad none of this happened. I don’t want to be affiliated with them anymore.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
