“It happens all over the world and people just don’t think of that,” Jermaine Jackson tells Piers Morgan during a one-hour interview set to air tonight at 9PM, defending his younger brother Michael‘s habit of bed-sharing with much younger boys and Morgan’s protests that, “It’s not normal.”
“For a guy of say, 44, to be sharing a bed with a boy of 12?” questions Morgan. “That’s not what most men of 44 do.”
“How do you know that?” Jackson responds. “You can’t just guess.”
Jackson has long been a staunch defender of his brother, and writes in his book, You Are Not Alone, that the family was ready in 2005 to sweep Michael away to Bahrain — a country that does not have an extradition-pact with the U.S. — in the case that he was found guilty of child molestation.
“I wish we were around more to tell him, ‘Michael, get this person away from you because they have a hidden agenda,” Jermaine tells Morgan. “He saw the good in people, the good.” Why, why? He liked living that way.
The two will also touch on Dr. Conrad Murray and You Are Not Alone.
