Jermaine Jackson on Dr. Conrad Murray: "I just didn't have a good feeling"

Piers Morgan's in-depth interview with Jermaine Jackson airs Thursday at 9pmET/PT, and the singer opens up about his new book, his family life and his brother, Michael Jackson. "For Michael to get sleep he had to be knocked out," he said. "This wasn't just this one night, this was administered in him on an ongoing basis which was causing his body to deteriorate."

Jermaine also discusses Dr. Conrad Murray specifically, who goes on trial later this month.

"The first time I saw Conrad Murray was in the hospital when my brother was dead," said Jackson of Murray. "I just didn't have a good feeling."

Watch the full, emotional hour, Thursday 9pmET/PT.

    Jermaine Jackson is the worst older brother Michael Jackson could possibly have drawn. First Jermaine wrote and published a scathing indictment of Michael in his song, "Word to the Bad." Then Jermaine spearheaded several "interventions" that were solely for the purpose of pressuring Michael to re-join the family business and go on tour to prop up the brothers' flagging careers. Jermaine Jackson is like Cain to the biblical Abel–bad news. I'm not going to buy Jermaine's book, nor will I tune in to any program that features him. To write in a book that there was a "plan" in place to whisk Michael out of the country on a private jet is patently absurd. Predictably, the malicious media is quoting it all out of proportion and context. Thanks for nothing, Jermaine Jackson. You are poison to your brother's memory.

      We the Public have only half the stories. These family members each have their own private relationships with Michael and we will never really know the reality of it. Each family member has their own stories as they remember them, their belief of what happened where and when because there are emotions attached to them and that particular event. It may not be what the others in the room remember because we all experience situations differently. Jermaine and Michael did once have a very close relationship as also did Marlin and Janet. Michael said himself. So Libelfreezone. don't get upset at Jermaine its what he remembers. And really We only know what they have told us.......so let go of the anger. it will not serve you well.

    We fans have been trying nonstop to repair Michaels reputaion and ask for justice for him in the form of media stoppiing thier vindetta against a man who did nothing but good. Now we have his own brother ,once again, insinuating that there was a reason MIchael would be found guilty, which he wasn't. When will his family have his back? He did everything he could to help them but they won't help themselves. His family of fans want it all to stop! We have been by his side for everything and are tired of having to repeat ourselves.MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NEVER FOUND GUILTY OF ANYTHING BECAUSE HE NEVER DID ANYTHING TO ANY CHILD. HE LOVED CHILDREN AND WANTED THE BEST FOR THEM. THEY WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND UNTIL THEY TAKE A LOOK ,A DEEP HARD LOOK AT WHO HE REALLY IS AND WHAT HE REALLY DID FOR THIS WORLD.I REMAIN A DEVOTED AND LOYAL FAN, MICHAEL ALWAYS.THERE ARE MILLIONS OF US AND WE HAVE YOUR BACK. L.O.V.E.,PEACE and UNITY .many blessings to all

      the only people who should be taken any notice of are the people who new him personally,every one who knew him only had really nice things to say about him.the media only write bs about people,he said so himself.every one should remember that he was a father with three beautiful children who will be aware of the awful lies ,imagine how they feel.he was also a much loved son,brother,uncle.he was the most generous person i have ever heard of, not just with money but his time and effort.the man should be remembered with respect.we his true fans will always appreciate his memory

    And still, they continue to use, abuse and suck him dry. His family is the worst, because they supposedly love him. I will not waste my money on buying either Jermaine's or Latoya's books. They're both liars and were insanely jealous of their brother their entire life. The only sibling i truly believe loved Michael was Janet, and i think she is the only one of the whole family that loved Michael for himself, not his money or celebrity. I know Michael loved his mother dearly, but even she allowed herself to be manipulated by her other children to use Michael for their own advantage. This family is the worst case of disfunctional i have ever heard of. Shame on them all. Well, i, for one, have your back Michael, and i dont want anything in return. The saddest part of this is you cant even respond to this crap.

    Paul ,wonderful to see you back! New Topic new day for those who sincerely want to see justice done,from 1993 trials to 2005,and the media attacks on this INNOCENT MAN! I agree with You Paul 10000%!!!!
    Jermaine is ...Michaels Brother ,and inall truth would Michael like to see us say negative things ,about his family ,united we stand divided we fall'.In most families there are times when we fight ,say things we feel badly about.. we have to remeber although the Jacksons are a showbusiness family ,they are HUMANS,with imperfections,and shortcomings ,like each of us!
    Lets get the media to stop slandering Michaels good name ,ask to hear so many positive things Michael has done to help millions of people ,his entire life...lets unite to get to the bottom of who was really after Michael in the first place,it surely was NOT HIS FAMILY !!!!!
    Mr .Sneddon some feel has broken laws tampered with evidence ,etc ,when will he be brought to justice? lets look at those have really ,tried to destroy Michael, not at his siblings please!
    Paul thank u ! Maria C

    I agree with you Maria, we cant always accused the Jacksons of bad things everytime they do something that we dont like Michael is their family , I really believe that they loved him how could they not , he was good to them, most of us have never met him and yet we love him so much so i believe that his family must have loved him so much as well .

    Why is Jackson's skin color still a topic of discussion? Read the autopsy report. Speak to his makeup artist. The surgeries- why is this an issue? Jackson was an artist, updating his look for the times. A unique brand. Is cosmetic surgery a crime? No. And many work-a-day people around the world resort to it to improve their chance of being employed. Like it or not, pretty people have an advantage. Do you think Jackson didn't know this? Recall the fan who said to his face, when he hit puberty, "eww, what happened to you?"

    Jackson, IMO, held the goal of being fabulously successful to fulfill a much larger mission. Look at the money he gave. The hundreds of nights he performed and donated it all to charity. Made sure that seats were held aside for the disadvantaged. How many performers do that? Give the man a damn break.Can we hear some of these stories please?

    No, it's not 'common' for 44 yr olds to sleep in close proximity to children. To avoid the hell Jackson was put through. But, there is nothing inherently wrong with it. Adults are very cautious anymore to even hug a child. What a horrible world for children to grow up in. Jackson grew up "mentoring" young men. He was clearly an ally to all children. Guilty people don't flaunt their crimes. The fact that he didn't stop the sleepovers (which medialoid speaks of as if it was a frequent occurence) is evidence of his innocence. He did have a "stubborn streak" and refused to change because it caused hysterical people concern.

      SeptSpirit: Some People just don"t want to believe that Michael was so beautiful inside as well as out. Your so right. It appeared that Piers Morgan was having a difficult time trying to comprehend what Jermaine was trying to explain regarding Michael's mind set of children sleeping in the same bed. Let me help Jermaine by breaking it down for Piers. When you come from a home with many children you have to have experienced sleeping with your siblings, and this does occur all over the world. Many families live in one room. not every parent can provide all their children with their own bedroom. I was surprised to hear Piers dispute this issue with Jermaine. I never believed those stories about Michael even though the media had and has a way of twisting truths so the story sells. shame on them.....
      Michael always had good intentions regarding children. The help he has provided in so many countries for the children is on record. undisputed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 He was of pure heart. Blessing

    Sept Spirit..Thank u for bringing up such good points! Many times as a single parent ,my kids had overnight guests ,and many times they all ended up with me in my bed.....so does that make one a pedophile? Not at all,u and I know Micahel is a target ,yes Is ...a target by some people in high .very high greedy places! He told us of conspiracies...and i BELIEVED HIM THEN AND DO NOW!
    Miichalel wasnot a strung out drugged up ,unhappy person ,no not the ways the media has lead us to believe...! He did so many many wonderful things ,yet was so disrespected time and time even now......again!
    If I want to know about ..Michael I listen to and look at what he said ...clear and simple....not the media!
    Thnk u for the comment...i can see you care deeply about him! it is so god o see this.....Maria C

    katherine! Hi ,I wanted to say you have posted a beautiful comment ! I am the 8th child in my family and I can tell u ,many time we huddled together ,and had friends pver etci agree Michaels intentions were oure he juts wanted to share.and somehow it got twisted .and for sure ,the media loves to run with filthy tales....
    As Michael said ,once he bacme the number one recording artist in History ,he was labelled many things he never was or is! The question remains ...who tried to bring him down ,who were the powerful individual responsible for this 'witch hunt ' as Madonna said publicly! it was not any siblings ,this we all know !
    I pray Justice will be done....from 1993 onward to 2005 ....lets hope for the truth to come out ! Love to u Maria C

    If Conrad Murray's defence team's strategy is anything like the defense strategy employed by Casey Anthony's defense team (basically defend your client by assassinating the character of as many people as possible), the upcoming trial of Conrad Murray should provide plenty of ammunition for all the MJ haters out there. God have mercy on MJ's family. They will need it!

    Michael Jackson was a druggy. Just say it! It's not all the doctors fault. It's time to fess up to some of this. Remember Micheal hired him for a reason, he was a yes man! Yes Micheal, yes sir, Yes Mr Jackson.
