MICHAEL Jackson’s parents are getting divorced.
Katherine and Joe Jackson have been married for 60 years but became estranged five years ago.
Katherine has now decided to file for divorce after growing tired of Joe’s cruel behavior — he suggested she was to blame for their son’s shock death last year.
“She’s been humiliated by him for too long. She’s absolutely livid. There’s no going back,” a source said.
Despite already being separated Mrs Jackson was said to be reluctant to officially end the marriage, because as a Jehovah’s Witness she doesn’t believe in divorce.

Sources tell Fox that they are being employed in service
Sources tell Fox 411 that mother Katherine, who has had custody and legal guardianship of his three children since her son's death, is employing them in service of the Jehovah's Witness faith. According to a Jackson insider, the kids have been doing the standard field service as part of their involvement with the Jehovah's Witnesses, encouraging others to convert to the faith by knocking on doors. It's ironic, given the extreme measures Jackson himself went to keep his kids out of the glare of the spotlight, such as covering them with masks and blankets to protect and shield their identities.
What is this? The Jehovah's Witness version of Trick-or-Treat? Will Blanket wear different blankets with sequins? Oh, Watchtower, you are sick.

Jermaine Jackson says that he considered himself Michael’s “protector” and that the pop star – who died last year, aged 50 – “trusted Islam” even though he did not convert.
“I felt that if Michael would have embraced Islam he would still be here today and I say that for many reasons,” said Jermaine in an interview to be broadcast on the BBC World Service on Friday.
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.”
Michael probably WOULD still be alive if he converted to Islam. At least he could probably live without being a hypocrite and feeling guilty!
Wonderful role-model examples for people at the door: live hypocritical lives
Wonderful testimony to the Watchtower: live hypocritical lives if it brings us more money and converts!

MICHAEL Jackson’s children are to pour out their hearts about how his death has changed their lives.
Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and Prince Michael II, eight – known as Blanket – will read from their personal journals in a private memorial at the Northridge Kingdom Hall in California.
Each of the King of Pop’s kids will speak in turn at a Jehovah’s Witness meeting hall where Jacko’s mum Katherine, father Joe and other relatives have worshipped for more than two decades.
Elders at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Northridge, near the Jackson family mansion in the LA suburb of Encino, at first asked Katherine if the children were ready for such an ordeal.
Oh, come on, what hypocrites! What other Kingdom Hall in the entire world would be allowed to hold a "special memorial" where Michael Jackson's kids give a tribute to their disassociated, dead father? Does Katherine Jackson's money and influence bring so much $$$ into this outdated 19th century fundamentalist religion that is supposedly diametrically opposed to everything the Watchtower stands for? How loud does money talk in the Watchtower leadership?

Katherine tells the
Daily Mirror, "They don't have any friends. They don't go
to school, they have private lessons at home -- but that will change in
September, when they are due to enroll at private college."
According to the interview, the kids spend hours listening to their dad's music.
She says Paris has turned her bedroom into a shrine to her "Daddy" and that Prince and Blanket talk often about trying to make him proud.
Do Jehovah's Witnesses allow their members to make "shrines" to disassociated or disfellowshipped Witnesses? Or anyone else, for that matter?? And THEN let them speak in a Kingdom Hall special tribute to him? Ted Jaracz would turn over in his freshly-dug grave!
