Janet Jackson: Michael Was in Denial Over Drug Use

Originally posted 11/18/2009 01:55PM

Nearly five months after Michael Jackson's death, Janet Jackson is shedding new light on her brother's alleged longtime prescription drug addiction.

In a new interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, the pop star reveals that she (and her family) staged a drug intervention on more than one occasion.

"Of course, that's what you do," she says. "Those are the things that you do when you love someone. You can't just let them continue on that way. And we did a few times. We weren't very successful."

Was Michael in denial? "Possibly," says the singer, 43.

She adds, "I wish he could answer this question for you and not me. I felt that he was in denial."

Murray, who has admitted administering propofol to the singer, has consistently denied any wrongdoing.

"They never really broke up," a source tells PEOPLE. "Jermaine wanted to give her some space when Michael died."

Michael, who died June 25 at age 50, was finally laid to rest last week in a mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. His death was ruled a homicide – death at the hands of another – and several doctors and pharmacies are under investigation... – Mike Fleeman

Sporting a black hat, sunglasses and a dark suit, the patriarch of the Jackson family appeared on the red carpet and told CNN about Michael: "I wish the world had recognized him when he was living. Right now, he's bigger than ever. But I wish he was here to see all this, to hear all this."

The memory of Michael dominated the gala. Host Jamie Foxx made his entrance in a red leather "Billie Jean" jacket. "No need to be sad. We want to celebrate this black man," said Foxx. "We gonna go through all of Michael Jackson."
