Latoya Jackson in a shocking unearthed video revealed that her brother was a pedophile and had paid hush money payments to the children of the young boys he molested.
In a video that has been unearthed from 1993, pop icon Michael Jackson’s sister LaToya stated that her brother was indeed a pedophile, saying, “Michael is my brother; I love him a great deal but I cannot, and will not, be a silent collaborator of his crimes against small, innocent children, and if I remain silent then it means I fuel the guilt and humiliation these children are feeling and I think it's very wrong.”
LaToya Jackson made the claims in an MTV interview after the father of 13-year-old Jordy Chandler accused Michael Jackson of molesting the boy and a settlement was reached out of court, according to The Daily Mail. Chandler and Jackson met in 1992, when Chandler was 12, according to The Mirror, which added that Chandler’s father “became suspicious after Jackson stayed in a room with Jordy and his stepbrother at the Monaco World Music Awards. In the same year, the LA police department launched an inquiry and went to Neverland with a strip-search warrant after Jordy gave a detailed description of his penis.”
The Mirror added, “In 1994 the case was settled out of court for $23 million. Jordy refused to testify against the singer and the district attorneys said their investigation failed to produce evidence and they could not file criminal charges without Jordan's cooperation.”
In the 1993 video, LaToya Jackson alleged that she had seen hush money paid to youths for “very, very large sums.”
The Daily Mail added that LaToya said she herself had been abused by her father, asserting, “I am a victim myself and I know what it feels like. These kids are going to be scarred for the rest of their lives and I don't want to see any more innocent, small children being affected this way … I love Michael very dearly but I feel even more sorry for these children because they don't have a life anymore, they don't.”
After LaToya alleged her brother was a pedophile, she later retracted her statements, saying her husband at the time had manipulated her to slam her brother, according to The Daily Mail.
