Jermaine Jackson told The Times Magazine that he and the star’s loved ones knew MJ “wouldn’t survive in prison” if sentenced for his alleged crimes, which is why they thought up a solution and called it “Plan B.”
"If they were going to sit and crucify my brother for something that he didn't do, America deserves us not to come back here,” said Jermaine. "At the end of the day, this is supposed to be the land of the brave, home of the free, democracy, freedom of speech.”
RadarOnline.com readers know that in 2005, the singer was accused of child abuse and blasted for his odd friendships with young boys.
"The way they were treating him, none of that existed. Why should he go to jail for something he didn't do?" continued Jermaine.
He said the family had a private jet on standby for Michael to fly to Bahrain if the court case didn't go his way. And while the “Thriller” singer was unaware of the escape plan, Jermaine said he certainly would have agreed.
In his book, “You Are Not Alone: Michael Through A Brother's Eyes,” Jermaine also said the entire family were willing to give up their American citizenship to move to the Middle East with the beloved star.
Michael ended up being acquitted of the charges, though his alleged victims recently spoke out again, in the scathing documentary, Leaving Neverland.
