Michael Jackson's Parents Divorcing After 60 Years

Nothing lasts forever--especially in the world of entertainment. Just ask Michael Jackson's parents, who after 60 years of marriage are finally calling it quits.

MJ's mother Katherine Jackson is reportedly tired of her husband Joe's cruel behavior and wants to legally separate.

They've been estranged for over five years now, but Katherine simply doesn't want to be married to Joe anymore. And we don't blame her!

According to a report by Showbiz411, a source says of the alleged divorce explained, "She’s never gotten over [Joe Jackson blaming her for Michael's death]."

Joe lashed out at Katherine in the press for not intruding in Michael's life more. "I begged her to go over and stay with him, but she insisted he needed his privacy," he said after Michael's death.

So what took Katherine so long to finally kick him to the curb? She's said to be reluctant to officially end the marriage, because as a Jehovah's Witness she doesn't believe in divorce.
