A person on Jackson’s team later apologized to Douglas, explaining they had been dealing with Michael’s father, Joe Jackson, who was angry after Michael refused to let his dad entry to the mansion.

It’s well known that Michael had a difficult relationship with his father Joe, whom Michael has said often beat him as a child and mocked him. Michael left his father nothing in his will.
