Janet Jackson: Michael tribute is 'too difficult for me'

Janet Jackson joined brothers Jermaine and Randy on Tuesday in opposing the October tribute concert for Michael Jackson because it takes place during the trial of the doctor charged in their brother's death.

While Janet Jackson stopped short of criticizing the promoters or other members of her family who support the tribute, she did put to rest any rumors that she would perform in it.

"Because of the trial, the timing of this tribute to our brother would be too difficult for me," she said in a statement sent to CNN by her representative Tuesday.

    I heard the cousins are treating Michaels kids pretty rough. They all live together and off of Michaels money. I heard one of the cousins zapped Prince Michael with a stun gun. The cousins are pretty jealous because they are Michaels children and super rich, plus they are white. I hope the cousins dont get too rough with them. Maybe DFACS should check on them every once in a while.
