We don't think this has anything to do with his death!
Jermaine Jackson is proclaiming that if his brother Michael converted to Islam he would not have died!
"I felt that if Michael would have embraced Islam he would still be here today and I say that for many reasons. Why? Because when you are 100 per cent clear in your mind as to who you are and what you are and why you are and everybody around you, then things change in a way that's better for you. It's just having that strength.
"God is so powerful. He was studying. He was reading a lot of books, because I brought him books from Saudi Arabia. I brought him books from Bahrain. I was the one who originally put him in Bahrain because I wanted him to get out of America because it was having a cherry-picking time on my brother."
Not the greatest thing to say as his brother's death nears its one year anniversary, but the Jacksons aren't quite known for the sensitivity.
He did admit that past year has been "tough" and added:
"There aren't no words to describe the feeling. It's a feeling that one would only know once they experience it. We are just learning to live with it. We'll never get over it."
