Joe Jackson's Nephew Slams Music Mogul: 'Not Everybody’ Goes To Heaven!

Joe Jackson died of cancer Wednesday, but he isn’t necessarily going to be resting in peace, according to one family member.

“Everybody thinks you're going to go to heaven when you die…not everybody is. I'm just saying,” Jackson’s nephew, Trent, exclusively told

"We all thought Joe was going to outlive everyone,” added Trent, whose dad, Lawrence, was Joe’s brother.

There’s good reason many of Joe’s relatives still harbor resentment against the music mogul who founded the Jackson 5.

As reported, he was infamous for physically and emotionally abusing his family, especially his superstar son, Michael Jackson.

The King of Pop, who died at age 50 on June 25, 2009, once admitted he was so terrified of his dad just the sight of him would make him vomit.

Despite the bad times, “Joe lived a good life,” Trent noted, adding, “Michael took care of him. Michael was the one who paved the way for all the Jackson's to have a good life.”

While Trent harbors a low opinion of his uncle, he has his own sketchy history with his celebrated clan.

As reported, Jackson family matriarch, Katherine, spoke out about the disturbing abuse she claims she’s suffered at Trent’s hand for years.

Already granted a temporary restraining order against Trent, she described the nightmare in her own words in newly filed court documents obtained in winter 2017.

“I am currently in London, England, under a doctor’s care in part because of the stress this situation with Trent is causing me,” Katherine wrote in the legal papers of the alleged elder abuse she suffered. “I am fearful that my decision to terminate his employment, and request for this retraining order… will cause him to try and cause me further harm.”
