Michael Jackson
No Molester Says Mom

Katherine Jackson is still defending her son Michael Jackson against molestation allegations -- even after his death.

Katherine Jackson

The mother of Michael Jackson defended her late son to Matt Lauer today, calling allegations that the pop star molested two different boys "the biggest lie ever told."

Katherine Jackson appeared on Today to discuss the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, who is accused of manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. When Matt Lauer asked if there was anything else she wanted to share with the world about her son, she immediately jumped into the scandal that nearly destroyed Michael's career.

"As far as Michael being a child molester... that's the biggest lie ever been told," she said.

"His lawyers told him he should just pay the money," Katherine said when Lauer asked why Jackson paid off his first accuser. "They thought that just paying the money and shut the people up would be the right thing to do."

She even said Jackson didn't want to go along with the payoff, but his legal team insisted. She says Michael told her, "I didn't want to do it either mother, I wanted to fight it because I knew it wasn't the truth."

The trial of Dr. Conrad Murray has been pushed back to September 2011.

I just lost my dad last year and there’s not a day go past that I don’t think of him it so hard to know that someone you love is not here no more. With Michael’s Mother to it has to be the hardest as a mother to receive a gift from God and then turn around and have to give him back to just deal with that. And now two years after his death there still talking about things that are not real when does the family get that time to in joy the good things that Michael has done for others and he did it without thinking of himself. If we stop and just look at Michael’s life and then we look at Jesus life we can see in some ways the same life as long as he was doing what everybody wanted him to do he was fine the time he stop doing now he doing thing that would make him look bad.
