Joe Jackson told The Today Show that someone should pay for the death of his 50-year-old son Michael, in the first interview the Jackson family patriarch has given since the death was ruled a homicide last Friday.
“Someone should pay — not just someone but all of them who were involved,” he said after a tribute to the Thriller singer at the Palms casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday.
“I’m not angry, I’m mad,” he said, noting he never knew Jackson was taking Propofol, the powerful drug investigators ruled as the substance entertainer died from taking. “I’m mad because I didn’t know that was going on; that tells me there was foul play done.”
Michael Jackson, who Joe said was the “greatest all over the world,” died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest June 25 in Los Angeles.
