Evan Chandler, 65, father of the first to accuse Michael Jackson of molestation, committed suicide this year in his New Jersey apartment with no known reason, no note, no evidence other than a fatal gun shot wound. However, Katherine Jackson’s “Never Say Goodbye” book claims the belief that Chandler committed suicide due to guilt over false sexual abuse accusations against her son Michael according to TMZ.
A book that should be called “The Woman’s Cloudy Fiscal Ball” due to the money shaking past news breaking guess surrounding the father of Jackson’s first accuser, Jordan Chandler.
According to Telegraph Jordan (now 29), and his father settled out of court and was told not to talk with others about the case against Jackson over a decade ago. However, following the mid-1990s settlement of $20 million Chandler again decided to take Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley to court for breach of agreement over talking on television about the case. The $60 million lawsuit was dismissed. But before you throw stones at Chandler remember, both sides were to follow the rules – only one side decided to break them as the opposing side watched them get out of it.
Back to Katherine Jackson, author of the book “Never Say Goodbye”.
Born Kattie B. Screws (Screws was changed to Scruse at age 4), Katherine Jackson is mother to the late Michael and Marlon, with living children Randy, Maureen, Sigmund, Jermaine, La Toya, and the famous little lady herself, Janet Jackson. Her husband is no other than Joe Jackson, the iron fist behind the creation of Jackson 5.
Katherine Jackson gave birth to the kids and lived through the long haul, therefore, she is entitled to write what she knows best – them. Although defending them comes second nature for a mother. Ten years ago, in 1990, Katherine wrote My Family, an autobiography where she writes of many situations surrounding the family, including Joe Jackson’s infidelities. You can catch all of this and more via Wikipedia. But when it comes to Chandler and Katherine Jackson, what’s missing? Facts.
How do we know Chandler committed suicide in the first place? No note, where’s the motive? Could Evan Chandler have been murdered? Former Beverly Hills dentist who once won a large multimillion dollar sum in a settlement from Jackson was found dead after he did not show up for an appointment. The only reason New Jersey police concluded suicide was due to a gun at his side and a bullet hole in his head. Therefore, on a noted fashion dare we say it? Assumption without an investigation – in the same way Katherine Jackson defines an alleged suicide surrounding guilt.
How much is fact? There is no telling – but when a story is good enough to sell you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be told. Question is, do you buy the tale that just may be that – a tale?
Katherine Jackson’s book, outside of her freedom of assumption and speech, is rumored to be not only dedicated to the King of Pop but also a coffee table book with various photos from her personal collection. She merely brushes over Chandler, it’s more about Michael.
