A shocking video taken in the home where Michael Jackson’s children live shows a cycle of violence that gives the children little chance at a normal lifestyle, a medical expert tells RadarOnline.com.
As a California Department of Children and Family Services investigation unfolds around events in the Encino, California home where Michael’s children live with many others, RadarOnline.com exclusively obtained video showing disturbing violence.
In the video, Jermaine’s son Jermajesty, 9, is brutally slapped in the face to the ground by his brother Jaafar, 13. This follows an incident where Jaafar reportedly ordered a stun gun and threatened Michael’s son Blanket. (Jackson family lawyers deny Blanket was threatened.)
With at least 14 people living in the Jackson house, and Jaafar at the center of two disturbing incident, one medical expert told RadarOnline.com, “Jaafar’s behavior toward his younger brother suggests he is a bully and he probably bullies the other cousins as well.”
Those are the words of Joseph S. Haraszti a California psychiatrist specializing in children and adolescents.
Haraszti believes the violence may be adversely effecting Michael’s three children and stems from a lack of guidance and disturbing family history.
“It shows a cycle of violence, knowing about the family history, when he hits brother so hard that he falls flat out, it looks like he knocks him out. There may have been violence towards him to make behave that way.” says Dr. Haraszti, who has not treated any member of the family.
“The stun gun incident shows lack of supervision. It’s premeditated intent to use it, so if he did, he shows poor judgment and it suggests internalized rage.
“I think it is pretty obvious that there are a lot of kids living in the house and because of this, there is a lack of guidance. It seems that the children are out of control. Which begs the question, where are the adults? Who is in charge?”
Katherine Jackson has legal custody of Michael’s three children. But ABCnews.com reported that as many as 14 people live in the house at any given time, including Alejandra Oaziaza, the mother of Jaafar and Jermajesty and also the mother of Randy Jackson children Genevieve, 20, and Randy Jr, 18, both of whom also live at the house.
“There are so many people living in that house and with most of the kids home schooled there is very little chance of any normal semblance of life,” Dr. Haraszti told RadarOnline.com.
