The late King of Pop’s mother, Katherine Jackson, is scheduled to appear
on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to discuss her son’s untimely death.
According to HARPO Productions, the interview will air on Monday, November 8. A pre-taped interview with Joe Jackson, Michael’s father, and his three children, Michael, Paris, and Blanket, will air during the segment as well.
The interview was filmed in Encino, California at the Jackson family home, and features Katherine’s reflection about her son’s childhood.
However, Oprah’s backyard visit to the Golden State did not smooth over as an all-supportive family affair. Baby brother, Randy Jackson, left a furious rant about Oprah Winfrey’s interview at his family’s Encino home, claiming that his brother Michael would not have been pleased with her access into their privacy.
Two weeks ago, the Jackson brother posted a series of ranting tweets:
“i know every 1 wants to know my position on the Oprah interview…1rst let me say that i love my mother and father. i am humbly grateful to have them as my parents… but i don’t always agree with the choices they make. this is 1 of those times…i found out Oprah was at our family home, my stomach ached and it still hasn’t gone away. “
Randy Jackson claimed that he had not been notified about the interview and his view of Oprah had been skewed since his brother’s nationally covered legal battles in the early 90s.
“i had no prior knowledge this was going to happen. it was deliberately kept from me because they knew i would have tried to stop it… I know how Oprah feels about my brother and family. i also know that he would not have wanted this… in fact, she is the last person on earth he would want around his children,” Randy wrote.
“i can never forget when she had the show on pedophilia during the jury deliberation process in my brother’s santa maria case… that was no coincidence… i know there are a lot of you out there upset and angry over this. i don’t blame you… can you imagine how i feel. i’m angry 2.”
Michael Jackson, a Grammy-award winning entertainer, passed away on June 25, 2009. The King of Pop’s last interview with Oprah Winfrey was in 1993, when he announced his diagnoses of vitiligo, a skin condition that results in the loss of pigmentation.
