Randy Jackson was not happy about Oprah being at his family’s home and says Oprah is the last person on earth that his late brother Michael Jackson would want around his children.
Randy Jackson was not happy at all about Oprah Winfrey being in his family’s home and took to Twitter (@randyjackson8) to vent about it.
i found out Oprah was at our family home, my stomach ached and it still hasn’t gone away
i had no prior knowledge this was going to happen. it was deliberately kept from me because they knew i would have tried to stop it
I know how Oprah feels about my brother and family. i also know that he would not have wanted this.
in fact, she is the last person on earth he would want around his children
i can never forget when she had the show on pedophilia during the jury deliberation process in my brother’s santa maria case.
that was no coincidence
i know there are a lot of you out there upset and angry over this. i don’t blame you
can you imagine how i feel. i’m angry 2
Let our anger be the fuel that ignites our desire for truth, and keeps us unified on the road to justice for him.

Letter #09: I’m Back

By now I’m guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation. Basically, no T.V., no radio, no snacks/junkfood, and one phone call a week. This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I fu#ked up and now I must deal with the consequences. As I write this, I only have 25 days left, and it’ll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I’m fine. Obviously, this gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous. I do miss being able to hear from my family everyday but once a week will have to suffice. To them, I apologize. I’m still able to receive mail so reading and responding is still a huge part of my day. I’d like to thank everyone that sent me B-Day cards and wishes… that was terrific. You all are wonderful, simply wonderful.
Well anyways, I just wanted you all to know that I’m good and I’ll be good! But at the end of the day, I did it all for music!!! By the way, thanx for downloading the I Am Not A Human Being album. And if you haven’t done so already, please do! And if you have, do so again! When I get out I’m going to put the album in stores and shoot more videos for it. Which songs should I shoot videos to? Also, we will be adding bonus songs and packaging the newNino Brown DVD with the in store album! You’re welcome.
Talent is best nurtured in solitude… Be home soon!
