In a new interview filmed by JacksonSecretVault.com Joe responded to the claim that he was “a bit too strict” with Michael.
“I had to be like that because, when raising him in those days, so many gangs out there [were] getting into trouble, going to jail. Most of them are dead now. He didn’t have to worry about that,” he said.
In fact, Joe has no regrets over his relationship with his famous son: “They tried to make a big issue when I spanked Michael or some of the kids. Just like they didn’t spank their kids when they did wrong. The media twists everything.”
Well if that’s not calling the kettle black, we don’t know what is! Joe is the king of twisting things around! We don’t know how his kids or Katherine Jackson put up with him all those years.
