CNN LARRY KING LIVE
Interview with Joe Jackson
Aired July 20, 2009 - 21:00 ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE
IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, Joe Jackson exclusive --
live, unedited in his own words. For the first time
since his son died, what Joe knows about Michael
and drugs; challenges to wife Katherine's guardianship;
and the foul play he blames for M.J.'s death.

Who is Joe accusing?

Plus, the never before asked question and answer --
how he said good- bye to his son.

Joe Jackson exclusive is next on LARRY KING LIVE.

Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family,
is in Las Vegas.

In Atlanta, is Leonard a lot of time, the music
and concert promoter and longtime friend of Michael Jackson.

Before we get started, I should say we got a lot of
e-mails, blog comments, Kings Things, Tweets, asking
if we paid for the interview. And the answer is simple
-- no, absolutely not.

Joe, I have -- I have not heard the answer to this
-- how did you learn of Michael's passing?

JOE JACKSON, FATHER OF MICHAEL JACKSON:
Well, I -- I learned that by some of the fans, you know.
They called me and they told me that the ambulance was
leaving Michael's house and it looked it was headed
toward the hospital. And he said the fire truck was
following the ambulance. And they said we are following
the fire truck.

That's how I learned.

KING: Wow! Did you turn the TV on right away?

JACKSON: No, I did not. I was trying to find out
more of the things, you know, by the fans and
that sort of the thing.

KING: Wow! So fans were the first to tell you?
JACKSON: Yes, they did. They always keep me abreast of
what's going on.

FURTHER DOWN INTO THE CONVERSATION

KING: Where is -- where is Michael's body?

JACKSON: I don't know. You'd have to ask somebody
that knows. I don't know. All I know is that...

KING: You're the father.

JACKSON: I was at the memorial and where
they took him from there, I have to find out.
I'll let you know later, Larry.

KING: OK. But as the father, one would think you
would have the most imminent right to know.

JACKSON: I do have that right. But I'm not talking
about that right now.

KING: OK. Jermaine talked to me about seeing Michael's
body and saying good-bye.

Did you get a chance to say good-bye?

JACKSON: Yes, I said good-bye to him when he was up
-- well, when he was up there in front of us, you know?

And I say -- I'm saying good-bye to him now. But --
and what the others say, that's what they say.
And what I'm saying is I do feel the loss of my son,
Michael Jackson, who was an international star all
over the world.

KING: But you -- you didn't get to see the body or
say anything...

JACKSON: No, I did not.

KING: ...to the remains?

JACKSON: No I did not.

KING: Do you wish you could have?

JACKSON: I could have. But -- but I wanted to see Michael
-- I wanted to remember Michael alive, because I didn't
want to see him -- I didn't want to see him laying up
in a casket, you know?

KING: Yes, I understand that.

JACKSON: Yes.

KING: If -- do you expect to be asked about burial?

JACKSON: Well, they could ask me...

KING: I mean, do you expect to be included in the decision?

JACKSON: Yes, I do expect a lot of things.
But a lot of things you expect don't ever happen.

KING: How true.

We're going to talk about lots of things. And we'll be
bringing in -- we have not forgotten your friend, Leonard,
right there. And we'll be bringing in Leonard shortly to
talk about...

JACKSON: There you go.

KING: Hold on right, Joe.

Hold on.We'll be right back.

  2. Very interesting isn't it? I especially liked .... We're not talking about that right now. Handled it very well

    Right 'I wish I could say what I want to say" it leaves alot to the imagination. Joe was in control of that interview

  3. Well after 4+ years Michael's live body has been everywhere right? We just get snippets of what he has been doing "behind the curtain"..

  4. simple question: Why havent u asked Mr Joseph Jackson
    some weeks ago about that topic? Well you still can do it. :)

    Plus it makes me wonder if you would ask those questions with the rest
    of Michaels family too.. ???
    At the end of the day you will be asking youself how to verify
    any DNA tests with the TRUTH!! So stop thinking about that.

    Twiggy - you need to focuse on the ESTATES!
    Corruption and greed thats what theses guys do celebrate, but
    not Michaels legacy. Or why is the estates on constant focuse
    of some Jacksons family members?

    Keep it going Twiggy. Stay TUNED.
