9:13 pm
getting along. >> larry: did they see their father's film? >> i don't know yet. i think they may have a copy. because according to my two sons -- >> larry: because it's on hbo now. >> they aren't allowed to do too much on the internet and all that kind of stuff. >> larry: good idea. >> yeah. >> larry: were you surprised how well they did at the memorial service? >> very, very well. >> larry: everyone was. >> i guess right when it happened, the therapist felt it was important for them to go in and see michael right then and there, and they got it all out. but, still, it will always be there. they are learning to live with it too. they have done a tremendous job of just being strong and being so young. >> larry: now, your mom is 80 now. and how is she doing? >> she's doing very well. >> larry: how does it work? they float? >> see, what it is, my mom is there, and all kinds of help,
9:14 pm
tutors, cooks and security and kids and they get a chance to just be children. and my mother, she runs the rules. she -- she enforces the rules. this is what's going to happen. they all have a meeting, they had a meeting last week, and -- about them just getting together on vacation trips and things like that, so it looks like there will be some travels going on. >> larry: everyone took it hard, but catherine took it especially hard, didn't she? well, you lose a child. >> it's hard to imagine how that feels, but she -- she gets numb and quiet sometimes, and i think she sort of relives the childhood of his and just hearing his laugh and what he used to do when he was young. >> larry: your father recently said i don't know how it affected the kids, but she
9:15 pm
should have been a more attentive mother. >> you know, larry, everybody has taken that out of context. i think my father -- my father said that because my mother -- michael -- my mother was very, very close to him. and she could get him to say and do things before my father and before any of us, so the fact that he said my mother should have -- a mother should have done that. but the bottom line is we were all very busy in trying to tear down this wall that was surrounded -- that michael surrounded himself with. these were the outside people who didn't want us in. and that's what he meant by breaking that barrier or trying to. she should have been more attentive to trying to get through. she knew he had a -- and just a
9:16 pm
pass all the time. not a pass, but just an okay, just to get through it. it was tough. very tough. >> larry: also still a will the of pain in him. >> yeah, still grieving, yeah. >> larry: i want to get this right. your sister january set talked abo -- janet talked about that michael had a problem, and your family tried several interventions with the problem, drugs. do you think you could have done more? >> we all say that after the fact, but some of the attempts to intervention, i wasn't there. i was out of the country. but i had heard about them, but michael would never, ever, ever take his own life, and i -- if michael were sitting here right now, and we were to say to him, michael, you're not going to be here, and your kids are going to be left fatherless, he would say, oh, no, that would never
9:17 pm
happen. and the fact that there have been so many ridiculous things said by dr. cline and all these idiots saying these horrible things now that he's not here, i'm very much against that. michael loved life. he was the type of person who saw a fly in the room, he wouldn't smash it against the wall, he would let it out. he would open the door and let it out. he would love to preserve life and life for others. >> larry: professor cline has a great love for him. >> no. how can he love him and not like me or the rest of the family? it's all bs. >> larry: dr. conrad murray, charged with involuntary manslaughter. his trial starts in august. will you attend that trial? >> yes. i'm there for support. there to keep my mother strong and my father and the family. >> larry: how do you feel about the doctor? a judge has allowed him to keep his medical license?
9:18 pm
>> larry, it's not important whether he keeps his license or they take his license away. the bottomline, michael is not here, what he administered to michael should have been in a hospital setting, and he did not act alone. i all feel, myself, randy, la toya, all of us feel he's the fall guy. and knowing how this whole thing works, it's higher up than just the doctor, and he's there. and if you squeeze him hard enough, he will talk. >> larry: in the year since michael died there, have been rumors of all kinds about what really happened. from day one, the jackson family has made surprising allegations. when we come back, jermaine will address the truth and the lies surrounding michael's death. hello, i'm randi kaye. dick cheney in a washington

9:25 pm
that's a good question, but right now we're just trying to make sure every rock is turned over and we can really get a thorough investigation. >> larry: do you think we'll ever find out the whole story? >> yes. yes. you know why? because this family is not going to let it not happen. we love him, we miss him. the world needs to know the truth. we need to know the truth. you need to know the truth. and absolutely. we'll do everything in our power as a family to make sure the world knows. >> larry: has he paid the city to cover the public memorial at staples. there were stories about that. what is it? >> larry, it's -- michael's estate is probably one of the most successful financial estates, close to $1 billion up to this date, and to have all of
9:26 pm
these things about debt and this and that, it's like when he was alive, they beat him down with the child molestation stuff, to make it seem like he did this. you beat people down with the very thing they love. this was all planned. they tried to kill him with that. they couldn't kill him with that. and he had a dependency on sleeping pills or whatever, and they found a way to kill him with that. >> larry: but the city has been paid, all that has been cleared? >> yes. >> larry: the day michael died, how did you find out? i remember you told me. >> i found out -- >> larry: where were you? >> i was in azuza. on the other side of pasadena. and someone from you guys called my wife. and said do you know anything about michael being rushed to the hospital. and i got off the phone and called my mother right away, and my mother said, yes, i'm on my
9:27 pm
way to the hospital right now. and once i got off the phone, 45 minutes went by, i spoke to an attorney, and i spoke to my sister janet, and janet mentioned it was pretty bad. and then i called my mother back and she was there in the hospital. i heard her say he's dead, he's dead. the tone of her voice, larry, is a tone i've never heard before. and i cried. i didn't know how to go best from azuza. we put it in the navigation. and we're crying along the way, and the phone is ringing off the hook, and people texting and calling, and as we get closer to westwood, we see all of the helicopters hovering in the sky, and westwood is people standing still and it's taped off, so i
9:28 pm
drive up to the policeman and they let me in. i go to the emergency part, and i go straight to my mother, and she is sitting there like in a daze. she was just in a daze, numb, staring into space. and then said i -- i consoled her a bit and then i went to see him. i said, well, where is he? she says he's down the hall. and i walked in this room, and it took a lot, larry, to walk into the room and see your brother, laying there lifeless. laying on the -- this gurney thing like. and i sort of touched his face, and it was still soft. it was still soft, and i pulled his eyelid back to look at his eyes, and i just kissed his face and it's a horrible feeling to
