"Say It Ain't So Joe"

According to reports from various sources and even the man himself at a young age Michael Jackson was physically and emotionally abused by his father, enduring incessant rehearsals, whippings and name-calling. Jackson's abuse would as with the majority of our nations children whom suffer in silence affect him throughout his adult life.

Michael Jackson first spoke openly about his childhood abuse in a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey. He said that during his childhood he often cried from loneliness and would sometimes get sick or start to vomit upon seeing his father. A common theme shared by many abused children, including myself.

Joseph Jackson drank from the same hard cement pond as my own father. And I would never have come forward with my own "daddy dearest" journey if my father had not murdered my mother back in 1989.

Now there is a legal battle over the Jackson estate. Joseph Jackson believes he is entitled to a montly allowance in excess of $15,000 each month. Yes, he being Joe Jackson provided the "sperm" that ultimately created a mutil-billion dollar entity, but does that give a father with whom Jackson severed ties, removed from his will and prohibited his own children to have any connection with, a life time compensation annuity for what amounts to nothing more than a sperm donation? Jackson carefully created with his lawyers an estate plan of direction prior to his death. On purpose Michael Jackson omitted his father "sticky fingers Joe" from receiving anything that Michael created and worked for during his lifetime.

It seems apparent to me that Michael's got the last word. And in the world of any abuser that has lost control they will fight to their last dying breathe, because they, cannot tolerate losing!
