Michael Jackson - Jackson Having A 'Difficult Time' Since Son's Death

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine "can't stand" to look at DR. CONRAD MURRAY's face as he battles charges of involuntary manslaughter, admitting she's having a "difficult time" coping with the court cases stemming from her son's 2009 death.
The Jackson family matriarch appeared on U.S. breakfast programme Good Morning America on Tuesday (25Jan11) and revealed her struggle to sit through court proceedings in the run-up to Murray's trial. The medic stands accused of administering the drug Propofol which killed the singer in June, 2009.
Murray pleaded not guilty to the charge on Tuesday (25Jan11) ahead of his trial on 28 March (11) - and Katherine Jackson insisted the aftermath of the singer's death has proved to be a very tough journey.
Jackson said: "It's been a difficult time for me ever since my son passed. When I'm in that courtroom I can't stand to look at that man (Murray)… and I go because I love my son... I just feel I have to be there."
In addition to Murray's involuntary manslaughter case, Katherine is dealing with a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by the singer's estate executors against her business partner, Howard Mann.
Her associate is accused of publishing a number of unauthorised photographs in new coffee table book, Never Can Say Goodbye, and the 80 year old is taking the litigation particularly personally: "As far as the estate suing Howard Mann, my feeling is when they're suing Howard Mann they're suing me… because I authorised the book."
As the court cases unfold, Jackson is also caring for her late son's three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket.
But she insists she's not having trouble raising the kids despite her advancing years: "Michael's children are good children, and he raised them out of love and understanding. I don't have a hard time with them, because they know what, how their father had them raised, and their very respectful and also it's a difference today."
However, Katherine has one stern rule - she will not be allowing her grandchildren to follow in their father's famous footsteps until they are older.
She adds, "I wouldn't let (them) go into business at this early of age, like Paris wants to be an actress… and I don't think Michael would have let her. He talked about (how) he didn't have a childhood, he wanted to be more... play more."

Mrs. Katherine I wish peace for you and your family and I ask God to put his arms around you and comfort you. I can only imagine how you must feel. MJ's death brought me to my knees and I have not been able to get up as of yet. I never had a chance to meet him and I was going to try to meet him but the murderer took that away from me. MJ was and forever will be my favorite entertainer and I hate how the world treated him. I love MJ so much and the world just isn't the same without him here. I never got to meet MJ but he felt like a member of my family and I hate that he is gone and I will never wish him back here. The media put him through so much and I am glad that he is with God in Heaven away from the BS that he endured.God please be with Mrs. Katherine and the children. Give them strength and your support.I love you MJ!
