Janet Jackson: We Staged an Intervention for Michael

Michael Jackson was one of the most famous men on the planet, but his private life was so private, fans would be shocked to know what went on behind closed doors.

Most of us were shocked to learn that Michael was addicted to dangerous drugs like Propofol, Demerol, Valium, Xanax and opiates like Oxycontin, but his family was well aware of his addiction and even tried staging an intervention for him.

"Of course, that's what you do," Jackson tells Robin Roberts in an interview clip which aired on Wednesday's Good Morning America.

"Those are the things that you do when you love someone. You can't just let them continue on that way."

"We did a few times," Janet added, the youngest child in the family. "We weren't very successful."

She added that Michael understood they were doing it out of love, but he was in denial over the fact that he had a serious problem. Such a tragic loss!
