    Default Michael's siblings- who remained trustworthy?

    I'm sort of becoming re-obsessed with Michael, and I'd like to know if some people could give me some explanations, so I don't have to sift through thousands of tabloid reports, etc. . . which of Michael's siblings were by his side until the end, and afterward? It's not always easy to know who to trust when it comes to media stories. . it's hard to know if they're true. I assume Joseph is out of the question, but of course Katherine is always to trust.
    Rebbie- well of course she never did anything negative.
    Jackie- I never heard anything negative about him...he always seemed kind and soft-spoken, kind of like Katherine. Did he stay this way?
    Tito- I don't really hear much about him
    Jermaine- I've heard a huge mix of stories about him and a few others about the will and a couple of songs he wrote lashing out a bit.. can someone clear him up for me?
    La Toya- she's one who's always been a bit of a question mark to me.. as far as things she says in interviews and things
    Marlon- he always seemed sweet and kind
    Randy- He also confuses me...
    Janet- there has been a lot of confusion surrounding her and the kids. but she's only really said good things about michael as far as i know.. right?

    Sorry for all the text! :p

    I LOVE YOU MICHAEL

    In my own opinion None of those people are trustable, not even Katherine.

    I'd say out of the siblings perhaps Jackie and Marlon are better, maybe Tito.

    The rest all betrayed Michael at one point or another. The worst offenders are LaToya, Randy and Rebbie IMO.

    Rebbie- well of course she never did anything negative.

    She did. She was supportive of Stacy Brown, a journalist who always trashed Michael in articles, calling him a pedo, among others. Brown is chummy with the likes of Diane Dimond and Ron Zonen (prosecutor in the 2005 case).

    During the 2005 trial he boasted he was a press spokesman for the Jackson family (all the while he was trashing Michael in his articles, calling him a pedo!). Michael issued a statement that Brown was not a spokesman for the family, but Rebbie then called in to a TV program and said Brown was a spokesman for her... At one point Brown was even Rebbie's manager.

    So no, Rebbie is not nice and all good. Her betrayal is not quite on the level of LaToya's in 1993, but close. She was also involved in the granny napping incident last summer.

    Ugh right. I forgot about Stacy Brown. "granny napping" haha. Strange move, Jacksons.
    you can understand why he distanced himself from people. He is a victim of his own goodness and talent, in my opinion. I'd like to believe that some of them just maybe got caught up with not being able to help him, and were feeling exasperated or something. I find it hard to think badly of Katherine though.

    I'm going to go along with Respect77. While we can come up with things that have happened that may include Jackie, Marlon, and Tito, all in all they have come across to me as the siblings that either stay away from alot of the drama, or would at least prefer to in most cases. I still can't figure out how Marlon got roped into the "granny napping" in the first place, and of course the "belt" fiasco. The three of them also have had more of a "life" outside Michael's world with their own involvements. Jackie with his son, Marlon with his projects, and Tito with his separate musical endeavors.

    It was Tito, not Marlon, who sort of got roped into the granny napping incident. His signature was on the paper calling MJ's will a fraud and asking the executors of the Estate to stand down. However, I think Tito was mislead to some extent and regretted that. I think Tito is generally a good guy. Also important to remember that MJ was very close to Titos 3 kids and named them as beneficiaries in his will.

    Jackie and Marlon also seem fairly trustworthy. They spoke out against Jermaine, Janet etc during the whole Katherine kidnap incident and said they didn't agree what was being said about the Estate executors. I even think Jackie is a consultant for the Estate.

    Janet really surprised me with her behaviour last summer. She always seemed so close to Mike, but she's gotten roped in for the money too. Jermaine has been a back stabber for years. I think he genuinely loves Mike but he is greedy, resentful and jealous. Randy is probably the nastiest of the lot. Rebbie is also a dodgy one due to whole Stacey Brown stuff. Latoya is Latoya. Nothing more needs to be said about her.

    Who knows to be honest. I never heard anything bad about Jackie and Michael was close to Tito's sons. I think they are in the will if Michael had no children to be beneficiaries. Not sure. Those two seemed heartbroken when Michael died and the way they spoke of him. I think it's hard to know.

    Didn't Janet along with Jermaine, Katherine wanted to force Michael to tour with her and the brothers in 2007 and and even there was a nasty fight about it?

    Now that you asked, here is my input, Trust no one.

    All of them have involved some tacky business deals after MJ passing trying to make money of him.
    Whether its belts, jackets, tribute concert, lying to the press etc.

    What Michael did with his family speaks volumes. He didn't want them anywhere near him, thus the security was instructed to keep them out, and if he needed a place to stay, he would go to his friends, not family.

    I was really disappointed with Janet's behavior too. She was always easy for me to like before that crap. Michael's a diamond in the rough when it comes to his family- in every way possible.

    Obviously none of them. Do see anyone in this family doing right by the estate if they were in charge?

    Do you see any of them fighting tooth and nail to hold on to the Beatles Catalogue?

    Do you only want to know whether they ever betrayed Michael, or do you also want to know about the wife beating, child beating, the cheating husbands, the girlfriend sharing, etc?

    I think the fact that Michael had to name Diana Ross as the second guardian in his will says a lot about Michael's trust in all of his siblings.

    I wouldn't even trust Katherine because she and her cubs are exploiting and using Prince, Paris and Blanket for their own benefit. I bet Diana Ross wouldn't be capable of doing such nasty thing because she doesn't need Michael's money.
